Eduardo Rivadavia

Eduardo Rivadavia (aka Ed Rivadavia) was born in São Paulo, Brazil, and by his late teens had already toured the world (and elsewhere), learning four languages on three continents. Having also accepted the holy gospel of rock & roll as his lord and savior, Eduardo became infatuated with the New Wave of British Heavy Metal and all things heavy, crude, and obnoxious while living in Milan, Italy, during the mid-1980s. At this time, he also made his journalistic debut as sole writer, editor, publisher, and, some would claim, reader of his high school's heavy metal fanzine, earning the scorn of jocks and nerds alike, but uniting the small hardcore music-loving contingent into a frenzied mob that spent countless hours exchanging tapes, talking shop, and getting beat up at concerts. Upon returning home to Brazil, Eduardo resumed a semi-normal existence, sporadically contributing music articles to local papers and magazines while earning his business degree. Finally, after years of obsessive musical fandom and at peace with his distinct lack of musical talent, Eduardo decided the time had come to infiltrate the music industry by the fire escape. He quit his boring corporate job, relocated to America, earned his master's degree while suffering the iniquities of interning for free (anything for rock & roll!), and eventually began working for various record labels, accumulating mountains of records and (seemingly) useless rock trivia in the process. This eventually led him back to writing, and he has regularly contributed articles to multiple websites since 1999, working with many different rock genres but specializing, as always, in his personal hobby: hard rock and heavy metal. To quote from the insightful 'This Is Spinal Tap': "People should be jealous of me...I'm jealous of me...." Eduardo currently resides in Austin, TX, with his wife, two daughters, and far more records, CDs and MP3s than he'll ever have time to listen to.

Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson To Pilot ‘Led Zeppelin’

Well, not THAT Led Zeppelin, of course -- but the world’s newly unveiled longest aircraft certainly bears more than a passing resemblance to the hydrogen-filled airships of old, and counts Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson among its primary champions and private investors — as well as test pilot.

35 Years Ago: The Allman Brothers Band Release ‘Enlightened Rogues’

In January 2014, guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks announced their plans to leave the Allman Brothers Band at year’s end, prompting longtime leader Gregg Allman to proclaim the band’s simultaneous retirement. However, you shouldn’t bet against an eventual rebirth, since the iconic southern rockers made their first comeback from an extended “breakup” in Feb. 1979 via their ‘Enlightened Rogues’ LP.

40 Years Ago: Steely Dan Release ‘Pretzel Logic’

The very notion may sound absurd today, but there was actually a day when Steely Dan’s career longevity seemed anything but guaranteed — until all doubts were quashed with the arrival of their almost universally acclaimed third studio opus, ‘Pretzel Logic,’ on Feb. 20, 1974.

30 Years Ago: The Alan Parsons Project Releases ‘Ammonia Avenue’

Conventional wisdom suggests that middle-of-the-road (MOR) soft rock and highbrow intellectual conceits shouldn’t make for happy bedfellows. But that was before they converged in the Alan Parsons Project, which built a remarkably successful career by applying pop music of many stripes to Steely Dan’s studio-bound perfectionism and Pink Floyd’s dreamy progressive rock signature.
