Blackbird Lucky 13 Guitar

Basically the Lucky 13 from Blackbird is the guitar equivalent of a Tesla Roadster – big performance, little frame.  Stealing its name from the unique 13th fret neck connection the Lucky 13 is a traveling guitar that gives you the big sound and tonal quality of a bigger body model.  The guitar sports a hollow neck ... continue reading

Gorillaz The Fall

When we talk about productivity on our iPad we base it on 3 star high scores in Angry Birds and how much of our FlipBoard feed we manage to get through. Damon Albarn (of Blur and Gorillaz fame) on the other hand has different ideas. Using a combination of apps while on tour with Gorillaz, he created an entire new Gorillaz ... continue reading

West Coast Seattle Boy: The Jimi Hendrix Anthology

Saying Jimi Hendrix is good at playing guitar is akin to saying that Four Loko gets you drunk. Yeah, it's true, but at the end of the day it doesn't do the whole experience justice. Throughout his career, Hendrix bent the electric guitar to his will and ultimately created an entirely new musical form. West Coast Seattle ... continue reading

Daft Punk: Tron Legacy Soundtrack

Tron Legacy is everything we need in a movie. It's got The Dude, motorcycles, airplanes, violence, video games, nostalgia, hot chicks and Daft Punk. It's shaping up to be the best Disney re-release since the Little Mermaid. Even if the movie sucks (it won't), the soundtrack and score are mind-blowing because Daft Punk ... continue reading

Rolling Stones Box Set: You Get What You Need

The 70’s are a strange decade in that a large portion of the population is either too young to have lived through them or, frankly, don’t remember them even occurring.  They’re like the moon landing - few can confirm they even happened.  While The Rolling Stones may not fully remember those 10 years, their ... continue reading

Music by Andrew Zuckerman

It took over four years to create the Discovery Channel miniseries “Life” in part because it had such an all-encompassing title.  If it was called “Animals Doing Stuff” it could have been shot in a week at the zoo.  Andrew Zuckerman has a knack for setting the bar high like this in his work and somehow exceeding ... continue reading

When Giants Walked the Earth

There’s a sort of mystique about Led Zeppelin that even other insanely huge bands do not have.  (Pink Floyd had it and Aerosmith kind of had it until Steven Tyler signed up for American Idol.)  A band could practice and practice, blowout speakers and shred guitar strings and never capture what Led Zeppelin captured.  ... continue reading

Pick Punch

Every guy picks up a guitar for the first time with the sole purpose of getting girls.  It starts in a dorm room somewhere, as you awkwardly try to make your way through Stairway to Heaven, and, for those with enough determination, it ends on a huge stage with scores women waiting for you to finish your set.  Whether ... continue reading

Life by Keith Richards

They say every wrinkle tells a story.  If that’s true, Life, the autobiography by Keith Richards, may just win The Pulitzer.  Few people could write a 500+ page life-story without sounding completely pompous, and even fewer could make that seem far too short.  But, Keith Richards is rock & roll, and whether ... continue reading

Marky Ramone’s Pasta Sauce – Really?

The Ramones are one of the greatest bands of all time. VH1, Rolling Stone, Spin, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame may have taken a while to get on board, but even they agreed eventually. We love The Ramones, we really do. Which is why this is even harder to say. In the biggest pop culture wtf moment since Don Johnson ... continue reading

Or Glory: 21st Century Rockers

Before rockstars wore mascara and made their careers on American Idol, they wrote their own music and possessed an iconic style of tattoos, slicked hair, and well worn leather. These guys were the real deal: there were no Nickelbacks, no Jars of Clay, no Insane Clown Posse. Horst Friedrich's book documents the originals ... continue reading

Springstreets Lyrical Map Poster

Mr. Bruce Spingsteen is known, amongst other things, for his evocative lyrics.  Well, some graphic designer--who must've listened to an absolute fuckload of Bruce's songs--has mapped out (literally) the places and names that his lyrics are famous for.  Pick up the  from all The Boss's greatest tunes, from Greetings ... continue reading
