Happy Birthday: John Bonham
It was on this date in 1948 that John “Bonzo” Bonham first arrived on this planet, and rock ‘n’ roll was as blessed by his presence as it was devastated by his early departure. In celebration of the drumming legend’s life, here are five quotes of note – two from the man himself, one each from his former Led Zeppelin bandmates – which should remind you just how great he was at his craft. And if for some reason you should need additional reminding, then the official Led Zeppelin playlist is right there for you to play and enjoy.

Now Available: The Grateful Dead, LONG STRANGE TRIP: MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK

It’s easy to sell a Dead Head on a documentary about The Grateful Dead, but Amir Bar-Lev’s Long Strange Trip has already been acclaimed by critics far and wide, and it’s anticipated to earn considerably more praise upon its premiere on Amazon Prime Video on June 2. Thankfully, you don’t have to wait that long to enjoy the music from the film, and you can do so whether you have Amazon Prime or not.

30 years ago today, The Cure released the album that would prove to be their first entry in the top 40 of the Billboard 200 and – perhaps more impressively – would provide them with their first-ever top-40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100.

A Closer Look at… YAZ

35 years ago this month, Alison Moyet and Vince Clarke of Yazoo – or Yaz if you’re in America or Canada – announced that they were calling it quits. To honor this admittedly depressing anniversary, we’re taking a look back at the duo’s back catalog, but don’t worry, it won’t take long. After all, they only released two albums.
