The stretch of fine albums Paul McCartney has released in the last decade or so, which includes last year's 'New,' can possibly be attribute to having worked with the same musicians. In a new interview, he speaks highly of the four men who have comprised his touring band since 2002.
When veteran Dutch rockers Golden Earring unveiled their seventeenth studio album, ’N.E.W.S,’ in March 1984, they were still feeling the love shown for their latest Top 10 single, ‘Twilight Zone,’ released just two years prior. But remember that it took nearly a decade after 1973’s career-defining hit, ‘Radar Love,’ to once again breathe the rarefied air found near the top of the charts. On top of all that, the band was nearly twenty years removed from their very first record, way back in ’65.
So often we credit Iggy and the Stooges as a major inspiration on punk that it's easy to overlook just how far-reaching their influence has spread. It's even extended to hip-hop, where Talib Kweli has recorded a cover of their 'Search & Destroy.'
Since forming in 1981, Motley Crue's lineup has remained relatively stable. While both Vince Neil and Tommy Lee tried their hands at solo careers, they were eventually brought back into the fold. Recently, Mick Mars revealed that he came dangerously close to quitting during the recording of 1997's 'Generation Swine,'
One of the reasons why 'This is Spinal Tap' continues to resonate is because it's not only heavy metal groups on the downside of their career that experience real-life 'Spinal Tap' stories, but also bands that are trying to make a name for themselves on the road to classic rock immortality. Years before the brain trust behind the movie even came up with the concept, the Doors had a moment that could found its way into the script.
Many young bands have to scramble to come up with new material for that all-important second album. Queen, on the other hand, were raring to release their sophomore LP well before their label was ready.
