Edward Van Halen's "revolutionary" instrumental made to look easily by a 14 year old. She doesn't even break a sweat.
I’m starting to get tired of writing these things. Seems more and more of our rock heroes are falling. Ray Manzarek keyboard player of The Doors passed away after quietly fighting cancer.

That said, there are no big radio-hits and it’s hardly groundbreaking but it’s wonderfully familiar, like meeting an old friend after years of being away.
Creating controversy is nothing new to Bowie who has career of pushing the limits of art to new extremes. He’s certainly got the Catholic Church in stir these days with his new video. It features priests and the ...
