Tomas Lindberg, frontman for the reactivated At The Gates, guests this week on the podcast. He tells us about the new album At War with Reality, why the band dissolved after such a seminal album, growing up in Sweden and his other career as… well, you’ll have to listen to find that one out.

DJ Ashba recalls narrowly escaping serious injury when his ass literally caught on fire during a Guns N' Roses gig.

The guitarist was onstage with GNR when he drunkenly smashed his guitar into one of the pyro props, only to unwittingly set off more flames and frighten the life out of his fellow guitarist Richard Fortus.

Ashba and Sixx AM bandmate James Michael share their most embarrassing spinal Tap moments in an interview with Ultimate Classic Rock.

Ashba says: “I have tons, but the one that stands out is when I caught on fire by pyro. I was out there playing, and I just...

When anything political is brought into the music world, musicians have a tendency to speak out against the matter at hand with different opinionated views resonating from it. Usually, they will stop at nothing until their message has been heard and will create music with lyrics that pertain to that matter that can truly help make a difference.

Today, A-F Records have announced that they will be releasing a compilation named This Concerns Everyone which brings awareness to the ongoing crisis in Iraq and the Middle East. The compilation will be released on November 18 and will feature Tom Morello...

To say that Anastacia is a fighter would be an understatement of the grandest order. She's battled - and won the fight against - breast cancer... twice. She's battled with both Crohn's disease and a heart condition, endured the breakdown of her marriage and fought against a record label which tried to steer her in a creative direction she felt was disingenuous.
But she's emerged from it all with her spirit soaring and, in the words of her smash single 'One Day In Your Life', baby she's "stronger than before".
Yes, this is the...

Where do we go? Where do we go now?
or Where do we go from here?

If you have a rock band and want your best musical days to remain ahead of you, these are bad questions to ask. Guns ‘n’ Roses began to weaken the minute Axl Rose began to believe the claims of his genius, which was the minute their debut went Platinum. Radiohead began to weaken the minute Thom Yorke decided that the way to stanch the bleeding of his soul was to delve further into the mystery of humans increasingly disconnecting from one another.

While neither Axl Rose nor former partner-in-crime Slash have displayed any considerable desire to reunite the classic lineup of Guns N’ Roses, the reason isn’t any animosity between the two. At least, none on Slash’s part. In fact, as he recently revealed, there’s quite a bit that Slash admires about Rose.

“Aside from the fact that he’s obviously one of the greatest singer-frontman guys to come along ever, [and] a brilliant lyricist, he’s a super, super intelligent, very astute individual,” the guitarist told Loudwire without hesitation when asked to name a few of Rose’s best...
