Greta Van Fleet – Anthem Of The Peaceful Army


A lot has been made of Greta Van Fleet in the run-up to the drop of their debut Anthem Of The Peaceful Army (Republic/Lava). They have had a meteoric rise and are now signed to the biggest record label in the world at pretty tender ages. Sure they wail and rule copying the light, shade, and lore of Led Zeppelin, sometimes too well. You’ll find no argument from this writer about Zep being the best rock band ever, and these are good building blocks. On the other hand, quick critics and fans haven’t noted how great these four guys are. At such a young age, you need to judge them and judge slowly. These are the fledgling attempts at figuring it all out, developing as writers, and post-teen brains forming as adults. When you listen to this album, turn off your cynical self and listen to the love and talent pouring out of your speakers. Continue reading

Styx Live Event Airing On AXS TV March 15th, Def Leppard Co Headline Tour Dates Announced


def leppard styx tour

Styx will be airing a brand new live event on AXS TV on Sunday, March 15, 2015 at 8 pm Eastern Time/5 pm Pacific Time, filmed at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, NV in front of a sold out audience during 2014’s “The Soundtrack of Summer” tour.

They performed many of their greatest hits, including “Come Sail Away,” “Renegade,” and “The Grand Illusion.” They even dug deep into their catalog for such fan favorites as “Light Up,” and were joined on stage by tour mate and former Eagles guitar legend Don Felder for “Blue Collar Man.” Felder’s show earlier that same night was also filmed for AXS TV, which will air immediately following Styx’s special. Felder’s special culminates with special guest Styx guitarist Tommy Shaw trading vocals and the classic electric guitar licks on “Hotel California.”

The current line up is Tommy Shaw (vocals, guitar), James “JY” Young (guitar, vocals), Chuck Panozzo (bass), Lawrence Gowan (vocals, keyboards), Ricky Phillips (bass) and Todd Sucherman (drums)
