Eye Candy: 41 Sexiest Album Covers
Ah, is there anything that’s tastier than candy? While the answer to that question is debatable, few will argue about the power and beauty of the kind of candy that you DON’T eat, but rather view with the eyes. That ladies and gents is “eye candy” which taps into lustfulness, innuendo and unapologetic naughtiness among a variety of other characterizations. Eye candy has been around for years and we, as humans never seem to tire of its power. Its shock value keeps us talking and keeps our eyes glued considering we “can’t get enough.”

Music can be the ultimate “ear candy,” featuring the...

Internal Drama Forces Black Crowes To Call It Quits After 24 Yea
It's a sad day for anyone who's ever had "She Talks to Angels" stuck in their head.

Here's why: The Black Crowes have broken up.

In an official statement, guitarist Rich Robinson revealed the reason for the Georgia rock band's split after 24 years and a string of hit albums like "Shake Your Money Maker," "The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion," and "War Paint."

Robinson claims his brother Chris Robinson, singer for the band, may have been jockeying for control of the group- which may have led to its downfall.

"“I love my brother and respect his talent but his present demand that I...

Chris Robinson Bashes Taylor Swift, Says She's 'Horrible'

Chris Robinson
Grumpy rocker Chris Robinson has become the latest star to attack country sweetheart Taylor Swift - almost a year after Kanye West ruined her big night at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards by protesting her first-ever win at the event.

Unprovoked, the Black Crowes frontman has taken issue with Swift over claims she's one of the most talented singers in the industry today. He's not a fan.

Robinson tells Nylon Guys magazine, "I find it embarrassing that adults are like, 'Taylor Swift is very talented.' She's not. She might be cute, but she's horrible."

7/31/2008 7:00am EDT
The Black Crowes
Rockers The Black Crowes are threatening to sue country star Gretchen Wilson, claiming she ripped off one of their songs.

The band has issued a copyright infringement against Wilson, her label SonyBMG and publishing company J Money Music, citing similarities between her new song "Work Harder Play Harder" and their hit track "Jealous Again."

Turner Network Television have also been dragged into the affair, because Wilson's song features in a commercial for its show Saving Grace.

Black Crowes manager Pete Angelus says, "We find the musical verses of Wilson's song to be such an ...

5 Underrated Guitar Players

6/25/2008 9:00am EDT
John Frusciante
Whenever one creates an "underrated" list, it often sparks an argument. Maybe that's because it's such a hard concept to define. Some might say an individual is far too under appreciated, while another might say, "Nope. He's rated right where he should be."

With music it's all about a person's ear and what he or she digs on. After all, there are no statistics to back a person up (unlike a topic such as sports where one might say that the importance of Dennis Rodman's rebounding was overlooked, and he/she would have the 20 boards a game stat right in front of him/her).

Drew Lachey
Perhaps the most perplexing question one can ask while watching "Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann" is, "Why is this show called Dance War?" By adding the element of singing to this competition, the dancing falls to the wayside and becomes a sloppy obstacle meant to leave contestants gasping for air while singing horrible boy band songs of the mid 90s.

This week, Bruno and Carrie Ann were forced to choose their six-person teams out of the 14 remaining contestants. For those who needed math tutors like your fellow "Dance War" writer, that means one male and one female had to be cut. ...
