DVD Review: Queen - 'Queen On Fire: Live At The Bowl'

8/15/2013 3:23am EDT
Anytime you can take Queen, and not just any Queen, the 1982 near-unstoppable version of the legendary rock outfit, and put them in a place like the Milton Keynes Bowl in front of 65,000 fans, you know it is going to be something special. Enter Queen On Fire: Live at the Bowl.

Queen On Fire: Live at the Bowl, a glorious concert partially broadcast at one point in time on the BBC, captures the band in all of their reverent splendor, with the long missed pomp and circumstance of Freddie Mercury front and center. This DVD offering is a haul, as it presents the entire concert from June 5, 1982...

DVD Review: Garbage - 'One Mile High...Live'

Garbage - One Mile High...Live
Outside of their fifth studio album Not Your Kind of People, released last year, Garbage has been largely dormant for the past eight years. But, do not let that coerce you into thinking this band has lost a step, or that they have any sort of onstage rust. That’s simply not true, and if you need proof, simply pop in their latest live DVD offering, One Mile High…Live, recorded at Denver’s Ogden Theater in October of 2012.

One Mile High…Live finds the band in a somewhat intimate setting, performing a mostly stripped down show in which their music, most of all, is spotlighted front and center...

DVD Review: The Rolling Stones - 'Crossfire Hurricane'

The Rolling Stones - Crossfire Hurricane
There’s not much of the Rolling Stones rise to superstardom that hasn’t been told, but HBO documentary Crossfire Hurricane, created in honor of the bands 50th anniversary, seeks to do just that – retell a story thats long been told before. Crossfire Hurricane tackles that obstacle by looking at the well-traveled history of the Stones from the perspective of the band, through the use of not only interviews with current and former band members, but also archival footage of the band, both on and off the stage, as well as newscast footage.

Director Brett Morgen uniquely has the band members do...

Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj heats things up with Lil Wayne in her latest video "High School," off her second album, "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded The Re-Up."

Shot in a gorgeous Los Angeles mansion, the video features Nicki in a few barely there outfits, like a yellow one-piece swimsuit and a white lace corset.

The American Idol judge debuted the new clip on MTV Tuesday, and she sat down with MTV Overdrive host Christina Garibaldi to discuss the new clip and her career.

Nicki feels that she's put in a lot of hard work in her career, and she says that Hip Hop is a male-dominated industry and she hasn't got...

DVD Review: The Doors - 'Live at the Bowl '68'

The Doors - Live at the Bowl 68
What could be better than watching the Doors live, at the height of their game, playing at the Hollywood Bowl, with frontman Jim Morrison (allegedly) tripping on acid? Well, that’s what you’re getting with the recently released the Doors – Live at the Bowl ’68. So, was Morrison wacked out of his mind during this show? You’ll have to see for yourself – just make sure you’re paying attention during “the End” when J-Mo thinks he spots a grasshopper on stage. Just make sure you don’t miss that part. The set list is long, and well-structured, and speaking of well-structured, the same can be said...

Led Zeppelin Celebration Day
On December 10, 2007, Led Zeppelin took the stage at London's O2 Arena to headline a tribute concert for dear friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.

Danko Jones
If you haven’t yet heard of Danko Jones, you’re probably not alone, but chances are things will change once you feast your eyes on the bands new DVD offering, Bring On the Mountain. Actually, if you are new to Danko Jones, you should start with the bands great 2010 release Below the Belt. Bring On the Mountain, named after a fan favorite song the band vows never to record, is a 90-minute documentary chronicling the beginnings of Jones’ love and obsession with music, and honestly the best thing about this doc is that it isn’t really bogged down with interviews from guests and such – the majo...

DVD Review: Phil Collins - "Live at Montreux 2004"

5/10/2012 5:14pm EDT
Phil Collins
In case you’ve forgotten, Phil Collins Live at Montreux 2004 will remind you of two things – first, that Collins is an exceptional drummer, something he wastes no time showcasing from the outset of the DVD, and second, that he has way more hit songs that more people are willing to give him credit for. The breadth of Collins impressive hit parade begins early with “Against All Odds” and continues via hit after hit after hit with tunes like “Don't Lose My Number," "You'll Be in My Heart," "True Colors," "Another Day in Paradise," "Two Hearts," "Sussudio,” and so on and so forth, and by now yo...

The Love We Make
The Love We Make is a powerful documentary centered around Paul McCartney’s journey to help give something back to New York City and its residents after tragedy struck on September 11, 2001. McCartney was on a plane preparing to take off from JFK Airport when the captain came on and announced that planes had struck the World Trade Center. McCartney, like most Americans in the wake of 9/11, felt he needed to do something, and felt he needed to give back in some way, so he planned an event. Albert Maysles and Bradley Kaplan direct the mostly black and white film, detailing McCartney’s every m...

DVD Review: 'God Bless Ozzy Osbourne'

God Bless Ozzy
In some ways, God Bless Ozzy Osbourne seems a bit unnecessary, a bit of grandeur and posturing - as it were - for a man who helped to shape the course of heavy music throughout the years.

As far as content, God Bless Ozzy Osbourne covers the necessary evils – Black Sabbath, drug addiction (sort of), and family life, though the proceedings are less than biting.

God Bless Ozzy Osbourne plays like a skeleton outline of Ozzy's life. While the man's alcoholism is addressed, it's quickly dismissed as just being part of Osbourne's lifestyle back in the day.

The Black Sabbath frontman's tenure ...
