Ironic that the announcement of  Slash & Axl Rose becoming friends again comes EXACTLY 10 years after Slash & Duff sued the hell out of Axl for claiming ALL of the band’s copyright material…

With the friendship repaired, there is a pretty credible rumor circulating (and I know, this has been rumored before…) that the ORIGINAL lineup is talking about a reunion album & tour!

Bruce Springsteen’s 3rd album really put him on the map outside of Jersey!

On This Day in 1975 – “Born To Run” was released!  It hit number 3 on the US Album chart, and the title track  gave him his first bonafide Top-40 hit!

40 Years Ago Today… Freddie Mercury began guiding his band Queen through 3 weeks of 12-hours days to accomplish the impossible… Fusing Rock and Opera.

They did it, proving the critics wrong, who said that radio wouldn’t support a 6-minute song!

From the album (aptly titled) “A Night At The Opera”… at it’s completion, it was the most expensive single ever recorded!

…and worth every penny!
