California rockers Tesla released a brand new song – “Save the Goodness”, written and produced by Def Leppard’s Phil Collen.

Tesla‘s bassist – Brian Wheat heard the song and told Phil, “We should record this song and you should produce it.”

The song comes as a bonus to their live album – “Mechanical Resonance Live!” which will be released on the 26th of August. The album will contain live recordings of their classic album in celebration for its 30th anniversary.

“Thirty years later and the songs on our first album still rock,” Tesla’s guitarist Frank Hannon said. “Making this new live album of Mechanical Resonance was a reminder of the innocence and creative beginnings of Tesla.”

“Our new video for ‘Save That Goodness’ captures the essence of the song. It’s a feel-good message with a hint of spirituality,” said Hannon about the new MV.

What Do You Guys Think of Metallica’s New Song?

metallica hardwired to self destruct album cover

Metallica released a new song from their long-awaited new album titled “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct”. After so many promises, endless teases and years of waiting, we finally have some new music to enjoy.

“Hardwired” is about the speed, technique and intensity of the riffs. It’s very aggressive, straightforward and definitely hits you hard. The lyrics “We’re so fucked, shit out of luck, hard-wired to self-destruct” are quite relevant, especially in nowadays world with everything happening all around the globe – wars, terrorism and of course the upcoming presidential elections.

The MV is black and white, filmed close up, leaving you with very uneasy and quite uncomfortable feelings when watching. Quite claustrophobic and tense atmosphere, definitely.

I cannot wait to hear the rest of the album!

BonJovi new video

 

Bon Jovi released a brand new music video for “This House is not for Sale” – the title track of their upcoming album. The cheery song is accompanied by beautiful sceneries, Jon casually riding his car around the town and the band rocking inside an old and quite elegant house.

The album will be released via Island/Universal Music Group after the band split from Mercury after more than 30 years.

“I have a lot to write about. Believe me, the new record is good. It’s pointed – it’s something we’re going to be very proud of when we put it out,” said Jon Bon Jovi about the new material coming up.

Stay tuned for more updates regarding their new album!

Def Leppard Release a Brand New Video for “Man Enough”

dl man en3

Def Leppard released a brand new music video for “Man Enough” – the 3rd single from their 2015 self-titled album.

The song impresses with its captivating beats and thrilling lyrics. Now, more than six months after the release of their latest album, the fans are finally rewarded  with a MV for the song. To me personally, “Man Enough” can easily be pointed out as the finest moment of the album. There’s just something so raw and hypnotizing about that bass…I could listen to it for days.

Overall, the band remained faithful to their futuristic and a little bizarre cyber themed style they demonstrated before. I do enjoy the darker scenes where we get to see just a glimpse of a guitar or Joe and the band singing!

Watch the MV below and let me know what you think about it!

 

Steve Miller vs. Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame

 

Steve Miller

It’s been more than two months since Steve Miller was inducted into the Rock&Roll Hall of Fame but he still has a lot to say regarding his experience and the way he was treated. He is now even planning on investigating the charitable efforts and finances of RockHall to make sure that everything is what it should be.

This Tuesday, during an interview with Howard Stern, Miller explained what happened between him and the Hall and even referred to it as “three months of insults and bulls”. He even said that he felt like they were more interested in having him on the telecast, rather than being inducted into the Rock Hall.

Before that interview and even during his acceptance speech, he repeatedly criticized RockHall and revealed that his band members had to pay for their tickets and he didn’t even have a say in who will induct him at the ceremony. Miller was so irritated that he was even thinking of not showing up.

“I’m gonna get these guys,” he told Stern. “They’re gonna be sorry that they treated all these people this way.”….

We cannot wait to see what Steve has planned for the RockHall! Way to go!

Watch the interview below:

 

 

This right here is the reason why now I truly understand why I respect and admire this incredible artist so much! He couldn’t have said it better and I am glad that finally someone is talking about the issues and controversies that are going around Rock&Roll Hall of Fame and its ridiculous inductions throughout the years. I did a lot of publications regarding RockHall and I’m glad that I can finally make one dedicated to a musician that’s not afraid to telling it how it truly is. He’s the real deal – a genuine rockstar and such a respectful human – nothing can hold him back!

Eric Clapton – “I Still Do” Album Review

Eric Clapton - I Still Do (2016)

Music legend and guitar God Eric Clapton is back with his twenty-third solo album titled “I Still Do”. The new album was officially released today (May 20) through the independent Bushbranch Records/Surfdog Records label. “I Still Do” is produced by the famous Glyn Johns who is also responsible for Clapton’s iconic “Slowhand” album which became an international success and is certified 3x-platinum by the RIAA.

“This was a long and overdue opportunity to work with Glyn Johns again, and also, incidentally, the fortieth anniversary of ‘Slowhand’!” said Eric Clapton in a statement announcing the upcoming release of I Still Do.

The 12 track record features new original songs, written by Eric Clapton and cover versions of classic songs by artists such as Robert Johnson and Bob Dylan. “I Still Do” follows up to Clapton’s hit album “The Breeze: An Appreciation of JJ Cale” released in 2014 and the commercially successful compilation album “Forever Man” and concert film and live album “Slowhand at 70 – Live at the Royal Albert Hall” released in 2015.

The distinguishable Eric Clapton artwork was painted by Sir Peter Blake who has previously worked with Clapton on his live album “24 Nights” (1991) and is famous for co-designing The Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album art.

OVERVIEW

The ultimate goal of “I Still Do” is to provide variety and we can clearly see it in the smart selection of songs and the wide range of artists he chose to cover, including folk icon Bob Dylan (I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine) and blues singer Leroy Carr (Alabama Woman Blues). In addition, original compositions (Spiral, Catch the Blues) also make an appearance and add the final ingredient to the long-awaited blues blast called “I Still Do”.

The result is a consistently delightful, although quite expected, collection from Clapton that features his stimulating guitar solos, raspy vocal delivery and a dozen other credited musicians who play alongside him. Positively laidback, the album definitely grabs your attention with its bluesy easy-going and breezy aura that creates the perfect mood. The songs are rather homogeneous and once again perfectly aligned with Eric Clapton’s standards and practices of reviving and exploring old ways and meanings of music.

Some of the album’s finest moments of the record include the carelessly improvised “Spiral” on which he sings, “You don’t know how much this means to have this music in meI just keep playing these blues’hoping that I don’t lose”. In the gentle lullaby “Little Man, You’ve Had A Busy Day” we can enjoy his husky and calming vocal delivery that can’t but warm our hearts. The more upbeat spirit of the album is captured in Robert Johnson’s “Stones in My Passway” and JJ Cale’s “Somebody’s Knocking” on which Clapton handsomely portrays his confidence in playing and singing the blues. The dozy “I Will Be There” and “I’ll Be Alright” may slow down the enthusiasm of some people; however the album wraps things up in a very classy and fanciful, though a but nostalgic way. “I’ll Be Seeing You” portrays Clapton’s passion for jazz music and captivates with its dreamy lyrics.

“I Still Do” is a reflection of Clapton’s current, assured and calmed spirit – the days of chasing trends, looking for new ways to reach the public and focus on making smashing hit albums are over. At this point in his career, he is finally ready to do his own music in his own way. He sounds confident, genuine and most importantly he is finally comfortable in his own skin. “I Still Do” is definitely a reason enough to celebrate and acknowledge the dying breed of musicians like Eric Clapton who do everything with style and class. Thank you for being 71 and still creating such beautiful music, Eric!
