"These guys suck," he muttered into the tattooed shins of the toking Latino in front of him.

It's not that my pop is the typical old guy who views rap as an example of all that is wrong with the world; he had just nodded along to Cypress Hill several sets before, even mouthing a few choice lyrics to "Insane in the Membrane." No, my dad is just not a fan of live music he can'...

Counting Crows
Hey, it's Adam, I just wanted to let all our fans know that Counting Crows will hit the road this summer on a tour of America's baseball parks.

We're gonna hit 23 different ballyards all across the country (they're all listed below), mostly in smaller towns.

One of the reasons I'm so excited about this little jaunt we've decided to call "The Rock 'n' Roll Triple Play Ballpark Tour" is that we got really lucky and talked both Live and Collective Soul into coming along for the summer. We...

Songs From Black Mountain
The latest disc from rock quartet Live, "Songs from Black Mountain," hits stores today. The album marks a bit of a return to the more catchier, melodic material they became known for prior to their two previous, somewhat lackluster, albums.

The band has all but dropped it's angry, political ranting in favor of sunnier lyrics. That's not to say it isn't bad. The ba...
