Not Fade Away
We spoke to the Demon himself about the album that started it all.
With only half of the original lineup, the band came back with a classic album.
We take a look at the album that helped the Beatles to take over America.
We take a look at Dylan’s folk classic just as ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ brings attention to the early ’60s folk scene.
Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young’s contributions to the soundtrack were important to the film… and to the marketing of the film.
The shortest song was eighteen and a half minutes.
In Not Fade Away, we take a look at the legacy of great albums as they celebrate significant anniversaries. Here, we look back at Black Sabbath’s fifth album, 1973’s ‘Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.’
A new member totally changed the band’s sound in 1983.
The hubbub came mainly from the album’s “hidden track,” where Axl Rose performed an acoustic version of Charles Manson’s “Look At Your Game, Girl.” Rose wasn’t shy about his love for Manson, rocking shirts with the singers’ face during the Use Your Illusion tour. The song…well, there’s a reason it’s hidden: It doesn’t add to the album, and feels tacked on solely to gain attention.
Their June 5, 1983 concert at the Red Rocks amphitheater in Colorado would prove an important step in taking them from their underground roots and their Springsteen-ian ambitions. They filmed the show for a live “home video” (as they were called in those pre-DVD days), Live At Red Rocks; two of the songs from that would also be used for the Under A Blood Red Sky EP (which also included performances recorded in Boston and Germany).
