The Black Keys have logged 54 shows already this year, and they’re only halfway through their planned tour schedule in support of ‘El Camino.’ There are plenty of festival dates — such as Catalpa in New York, Firefly in Delaware, Lollapalooza in Chicago and Austin City Limits — on the horizon. Despite all that current and future touring, drummer Patrick Carney reveals that the band was flashed by a fan for the very first time while on their current run of dates.
AskMen.com is launching the Great Male Survey of 2012, and if you view yourself as such a dude, then start plugging in your answers for the “Men in 2012” portion of the three-part pre-survey. Yes, that might sound like a bit of work, but trust us, it’s more interesting than your actual job.
The 10th annual tribute to the late, great Alice in Chains vocalist Layne Staley, who passed away in April 2002 at the tender age of 34 after years of addiction struggles, is set for this August in the Seattle/Tacoma area. It’s a massive celebration, as five days of events and performances have been planned to remember the singer whose definitive voice marked the grunge era of rock ‘n’ roll.
If you own a replica of The A-Team van and happen to be, you know, sane, it does not mean you are an innate badass like B.A. Baracus. Nor does it give you licenses to ram said imitation vehicle into a cop car when the po-po pulls you over for a moving violation. However, if you are a bit of a whack job, you may think the opposite is true.
Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil made a statement years ago that is blasphemous to headbangers. He once said that the band wanted to sound like “Black Sabbath without the parts that suck.” Wait, what? There are parts of Sabbath that suck? Who knew. See what we meant about blasphemy?
Onetime Fleetwood Mac guitarist Bob Welch, who was a member of the classic rock band in the early 1970s, was found dead at his Nashville-area home on Thursday (June 7) from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Ultimate Classic Rock reports that the guitarist, 65, shot himself in the chest. The musician’s passing generated an outpouring of comments from fellow rockers, such as Slash and Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx, who voiced their thoughts on Twitter, while shock rocker Alice Cooper also spoke out about Welch’s passing.
All’s well that ends well. Turns out that the woman who jacked $200,000 in jewelry from Axl Rose in Paris on Tuesday (June 5) was “really just an excited fan,” according to a tweet issued by Rose himself. The three stolen gold-and-diamond necklaces were returned to the Guns N’ Roses singer after the thief, who admitted to mistakenly stealing the baubles, was taken into custody.
Conventional wisdom dictates that if you mess with the bull, you’re gonna get the horns. Well, The Big Easy Rollergirls are sharpening their horns –er, their skate blades- in order to replicate the world famous Encierro aka Running of the Bulls, which normally unfolds in Pamplona, Spain.
In a recent video chat with TIME.com, Slash spoke about a variety of topics that are familiar to his longtime legion of fans, like his top hat and his relationship (or lack thereof) with Axl Rose.

Yet another batch of clips from the group’s performances in Europe has surfaced online, this time from the May 31 show at the Spektrum in Oslo, Norway.
