It's Halloween! Metallica Needs You

It's Halloween!! Whats so scary about Classic Rock? The latest news from Metallica. Remember how upset Metallica got when Napster opened the door for you to steal their music? Recording the band live on stage is no different. Except this time... instead Metallica shoving their fists in protest. They kinda wanna participate. The band wants to turn your art into gallery. Basically meaning its an invitation to send in your old instamatic camera shots and video quick pix. Cassettes, fliers, ticket stubs and more. It's going into a brand new book and website called Master of Puppets

Who would've thunk? Tom Petty's a huge fan of the NBA. And he's lovin the idea that Lebron is back in a Cleveland jersey.. (sound bite) Petty being a fan of pro basketball isn't new. Who do you think sat in Jack Nicholson's seats when the Lakers were on the floor? (sound bite)

Queen Still Topping The Favorites List

Research. Every workplace is governed by the end result of research. How about some research that doesn't feeds you rather than the bosses pocket. A new study states. Bohemian Rhapsody from Queen is the world's biggest pick me up song. Critics of music aren't shocked. Freddie Mercury and company are the makers of a song that topped the charts in England inside two different decades. Realizing this is the Classic Rock report I shouldn't share with you the two songs bubbling under Bohemian Rhapsody but I will.... Dancing Queen from Abba and Happy from Pharrell Williams

You Thought You Knew Stairway To Heaven

Social Media... what an incredible tool! Not only do we have the unheard version of Zeppelins Stairway to Heaven but I talk with the producer of a huge radio show that will be broadcast nationwide this weekend on I Heart Media's Classic Rock Stations. A new version of Stairway to Heaven? There was once an age when being a Classic Rock came with mystery. You didn't need to paint your face. You only need a writing instrument to pen the lyrics from winds of present and past. Led Zeppelin Stairway to Heaven. Easily it seems to be the greatest piece of music written in our time. And with it comes the great mystery. A new version of the song that hasn't been heard until now. It plays down the process and energy of John Paul Jones' recorder. Even more shocking is the lack of John Bonham's drums due to Jimmy Pages guitar sounds being the bigger demand. Note: This weekend on multiple I Heart Media radio stations a very special Led Zeppelin special will be aired. Locate it and become part of this historic moment.
