MARKY RAMONE DISCUSSES LIFE BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER THE RAMONES

Mr. Ramone is interviewed and he has plenty to share — everything from what it was like being with the Ramones during the Rock and Roll High School period to his close relationship with producer Phil Spector. And, if you didn't know, Marky still plays Ramones songs in his 'Blitzkrieg' band.

50 YEARS OF DAVID BOWIE’S PIN-UPS

Pin-Ups was more than just a covers album for David Bowie. You'll read how special these songs were to Bowie's evolution as a rock star. It was like Bowie was trying to relive the youth of the '60s at the height of his '70s glam stardom.

THE BEACH BOYS IN THE EARLY 1970s

After some years in the wilderness post-Pet Sounds, The Beach Boys managed to rebuild their credibility both as a live act and as chart contenders. The success of the album Surf’s Up was followed by Carl and The Passions — “So Tough” in 1972, then Holland in 1973. Both albums are special in their own way. Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin fill in all the details.
