Metallica’s concert film, Through the Never, is not your typical rock n roll flick. Like Led Zeppelin’s The Song Remains the Same, it has a dramatic narrative that weaves its way in and out of the concert footage. Never was also shot in IMAX 3D, and will have the biggest opening for an IMAX movie in the technology’s history.
For the last time people, how many times do we need to keep saying it, there will never be a Led Zeppelin or Guns N Roses reunion in a million years. Even Bill Clinton couldn’t convince Zeppelin to come back together for a Hurricane Sandy benefit.
Although there have been many great rock photographers throughout the years, you still get the feeling rock photography is still not taken seriously in many corners.
Metallica has always been famously picky about who licenses its music. Paradise Lost, the documentary about the West Memphis Three, was the first time the band ever allowed its music to be used in a film.
There are so many reunions the fans desperately want, and many figure if Van Halen can get back together with David Lee Roth and tour, so can practically any other band. Well, not exactly.
I remember very fondly when Guitar Hero became the hottest video game. It was a great idea, and for a moment it actually helped keep the music business alive.
There comes a time when every band should call it quits, and in many cases, they don't do it when they should.
All lovers of heavy music truly owe Tony Iommi an enormous debt.

When Guitar Hero first started out, it was really tough to get big bands to commit.
