By AEWD22:- Throughout his career, Ritchie Blackmore has allegedly been quite challenging to work for/with. He has his own specific plans and visions for what he wants and demands that everyone meet his expectations. When he formed Rainbow in 1975, Blackmore wanted a heavy sound for his band. Making Rainbow a Heavy Metal band wasn’t […]

By AEWD22:- Yes and vice versa. When Jimi Hendrix arrived in England in September 1966, he specifically wanted to meet Eric Clapton as he enjoyed his guitar-playing.

By Robin Meadows:- Freddie received a thorough and rigorous education from his boarding school in India. In the evenings he and a group of boys would even gather to learn more about the arts from one of the teachers. They listened to opera and plays and read and discussed literature.

 By Thomas Newman:- Over 40 years since they launched themselves onto the international stage, AC/DC are still rocking and rolling with the best of them. They’ve lost members, gained members, weathered criticism, and gotten old. Somewhere along the line, they’ve also managed to sell over 200 million records, becoming the 16th best-selling music act in the world […]

By Jack Whatley:- Jimi Hendrix is a man who has dominated the music scene he left some 50 years ago. The wild guitarist and counterculture poster boy made his name as the free spirit of rock ‘n’ roll and, perhaps due to his untimely death, he has never given up that post. Still, in 2020, […]

By JESSICA SAGER  @ohheyjesssager (Brad Elterman/Getty Images) It was extremely difficult to narrow down the best rock bands of all time, thanks to the volume of artists and the smorgasbord of sub-genres (alternative, rock, psychedelic, punk, new wave, grunge, metal, just to name a few—and all of the sub-sub-genres within those).
