What jeans was Freddie Mercury wearing at Live Aid? Wrangler. It was the only brand he ever wore and Peter Freestone had to stock up on them any chance he got when they were in the USA they weren’t easy to find in U.K. or Europe. Read: Living In NY as a Musician The question […]

Alpcan Aras A really good question. The song Bohemian Rhapsody includes such names as: Scaramouche, a clown character from Comedia dell’Arte Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango? Galileo Galilei, astronomist and Figaro, a character of Rossini’s Barber of Seville Galileo(Galileo),Galileo(Galileo), Galileo Figaro Beelzebub, a devil in Christianism Beelzebub, has a devil put aside for me, for […]

Jon Mixon Outside observation: He didn’t try very hard – Jagger’s solo efforts are rather notable for their lack of “heft”. Despite being a decent songwriter and having the wealth and backing to make stronger albums, he just didn’t. It was always a side job – The Rolling Stones was (and remains) his major source […]

Jesse Sutton· Okay, so I’ve heard this one a million times. According to legend, Clapton’s quote was “I wouldn’t know, ask Prince.” I love this anecdote. I love any time guitarists express admiration for other guitarists. Professional respect at its most pure. I loved it when I read that Frank Zappa had a ton of […]

Magnus Greel· My answer: TOTO. Though they’ve had a shifting line up over the years, their core of musicians are some of the best in the business. As TOTO they have released 14 albums, sold over 40 million albums, and won six Grammys. TOTO’s individual musicians, Steve Lukather (guitar/vocals), David Paich (keyboards/vocals), Jeff Porcaro (drums), […]

Miltos Antoniades:- Of course he will be remembered as one of the greats. He was one of the most influential guitarists in modern music. He came out and showed the world what tapping is. Then all the shredders followed. But EVH’s value in not only as an innovator. Unlike most of the copycats that followed […]

Doug Vaughn:- As many people know, the film was well underway, yet still had no title. Its distributor (United Artists) began bugging Walter Shenson (Producer) and Dick Lester (Director) for a title, so they could begin worldwide publicity. Sometimes while the band was touring, at the end of still another exhausting day, Ringo would say […]

Bob Smith· Awesome band. Grand Funk Railroad is a huge part of popular music history. The band began as a trio back in 1969 and took their name from a railroad company that had a line running through their home town of Flint, Michigan. The band saw tremendous popularity in the early 1970’s quickly becoming […]

Nick Ford: – Absolutely, and there are few bigger than this one where Eddie Van Halen plays Jump with the wrong guitar – he’s half a step out from the keyboards and bass. Rather than grab the correctly tuned guitar (ie in standard tuning, not Eb like he typically uses), he just…keeps…on…going. Van Halen – […]

The 90s undoubtedly marked the Golden Age of underground music zines cataloguing subcultural movements. Without an avalanche of Tumblr accounts offering endless information on what your favourite band is wearing, Soundcloud recommendations about who to listen to next, or Twitter documenting your most-loved guitar player’s childhood fear, publications such as the pioneering DIY zine Sniffin’ […]
