Goldmine magazine’s July 2011 (Issue #801) is on your newsstand now! Ronnie Spector is the cover story.
Publishers of “Bohemian Rhapsodies: True and Authorized Tales by Queen Fans and Celebrities” will display the book’s cover art at the 2011 Book Expo of America this week.
The surviving members of Queen are pulling out all the stops to celebrate the band’s 40th anniversary with a series of releases, reissues, special limited-edition items and events around the world.
Band’s wave of activity includes releasing deluxe editions of studio albums
The Web site of the UK radio station Absolute Radio is currently featuring several very interesting podcasts marking the 25th anniversary of the Live Aid concerts.
It’s been a quarter-century since Boomtown Rats singer Bob Geldof put together what has been, in hindsight, the most extensive multi-continental benefit concert to date, Live Aid.
Absolute Radio will broadcast a documentary about the 25th anniversary of Live Aid next week. The documentary will be aired in two parts. The first will be broadcast on Monday, July 12th at 10 p.m. BST (5 p.m. Eastern) and part two can be heard the following night at the same time.
In addition to featuring well-drawn characters, interesting storylines, razor-sharp dialogue, and, for better or worse, the fashions of the early 1980s, Ashes to Ashes also has a fantastic soundtrack that is chock full of the music of the time.
Super-sized rocker, Meat Loaf, will offer viewers the opportunity to purchase his forthcoming album, “Hang Cool Teddy Bear,” one week before its street date, on the shopping network.
Looking at small bits of art necessarily enters the realm of the abstract, and, of course, a guitar solo is usually shorter than a band’s catalog, much less an album or even a song. So, this gets tricky.
