Welcome to the wild world of "Weird Al" Yankovic - a world populated by a Pennsylvania Dutch gangsta-rapper ("Amish Paradise") and a serial-killing Saint Nick ("The Night Santa Went Crazy") - a world where people frantically search for their Liquid Paper, hallucinate about the floating disembodied head of Colonel Sanders and dream of one day visiting "The Biggest Ball Of Twine In Minnesota." Yankovic, a three-time Grammy Award winner and the biggest selling comedy recording artist in history, shows no mercy to cultural milestones of every stripe - from Jurassic Park and Star Wars to the hi...

Unexpected, Untimely And Shocking Deaths In Music

7/1/2009 11:15am EDT
Shocking music deaths
Heart attacks. Plane crashes. Car crashes. Drug overdoses. Murder. Over the years, these have become some of the most common causes of the often shocking deaths in the music industry. On a lighter note, some might argue that even ham sandwiches have been involved.

Regardless of the cause, take a look back at these musical icons that have left us way, way, way too soon - yet have left us with legacies that will live on forever. The majority of these deaths, in addition to being sudden and shocking, were in some way either ironic or just completely messed up. Rock on...

25 Surprise Celebrity Deaths That Rocked Us All

Natasha Richardson
Actress Natasha Richardson's unexpected death in a skiing accident late last month stunned and saddened the public. The usually overzealous media even seemed to tread lightly, gently reporting a story it never expected to tell. For a culture that values and admires celebrity, the death of vibrant public figures with potential yet to fulfill serves as a harsh reminder that despite glamour, talent and seemingly charmed lives, all of us are mortal. Whether on screens big or small, over the radio airwaves or in bright vivid color on canvas, the sudden passing of an entertainer can feel like the...

Collateral Damage From Robert Plant's Decision To Nix Zep Reunion

Led Zeppelin
Since the surviving members of Led Zeppelin reformed last December for a one-off show to pay tribute to late Atlantic Records founder and legend Ahmet Ertegun, the man who discovered and brought us some of the most talented artists of all-time (seriously, we really could use another Ahmet right about now-- but since the almighty dollar overshadows the need for actual talent we can forget that) and gave a handful of folks in England the greatest holiday gift ever, there has been a weekly story about the band going on tour. And not going on tour. But wanting to tour. And not wanting to tour. ...

Review: Mixing 'Chinese Democracy' With Dr Pepper

12/5/2008 11:44am EST
Guns N Roses
We've waited 17 years for a full length album of new Guns N' Roses material, and this stretch of time was made all the more ridiculous after all the delays, firings, and apparent breakdowns by Axl Rose, the band's only remaining original member, and his ill-fated project: Chinese Democracy. As more and more time elapsed, as release dates were pushed back further-and-further, the expectations for this album became higher or lower, depending on how you look at it. Some might say that it couldn't possibly be good because Axl is totally off his rocker and has made simply putting out a rock n'...

Concert Review: Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Atlanta, GA

4/29/2008 1:43pm EDT
Springsteen
There are a handful of acts that certain music lovers yearn to experience in their lifetime. The Beatles. The Rolling Stones. The Doors. The Clash. When it becomes apparent that experiencing some of these acts may not happen, it's a bitter pill to swallow. I have never seen a Springsteen concert. I yearned to see one before it was all over. When keyboardist Danny Federici lost his long battle with cancer last week, the E Street Band's immortality was in question. This was one, I thought, that I must see.

Bruce began the show with a tribute to Federici. The lights stayed off w...

You've been behind the music, read the dirt and seen the concerts, now experience what it takes, and meet who is involved, in the making of a Classic Album. Eagle Rock Entertainment is proud to announce the April 22 release of The Doors, as the next installment of its much-lauded "Classic Albums" DVD series.

The year was 1967. The music industry was going through an upheaval as the old guard was giving way to a youth culture revolution that turned thought, sound and politics inside-out and upside-down. In the midst of all this, one of, if not arguably the greatest rock'n'roll debut al...
