Festival season has arrived, ladies and gentleman. Get ready for Paul McCartney at Lollapalooza, Drake at Governors Ball, and PERMANENT BATHROOMS at Coachella! No, really. There will be actual bathrooms at Coachella this year. In other news, AC/DC is headlining.
We’ve brought you a list of children who shred harder than you, and now three of them have joined forces for a pre-teen group that is destined for metal stardom. The Warning is a power trio that consists of three sisters: 15-year-old guitarist Dany, 13-year-old drummer Paulina and 10-year-old bassist Alejandra. They’ve been earning fans by posting incredible covers to their youtube channel (mandatory viewing), ranging from Metallica to Katy Perry. But clearly, their hard rock chops are honed razor sharp.
Beyonce and Jay Z have been married for seven years, which, considering their hectic schedules and all of the shameful rumors surrounding their relationship, is quite a milestone. Bey recently dropped a new video, filmed by Jay, in which she debuted a song called “Die With You,” written for her hubby. Jay took to Instagram a few days ago to post a 2008 clip of their secret nuptials. As a fan of both Bey and Jay, I love getting glimpses into the behind-the-scenes of the life they share. At the same time, I’m left wondering: What made this extremely private couple suddenly want to go public with their relationship?
If you want to watch Ed Sheeran act like the ultimate kid on Christmas morning, then look no further than this clip of the singer being presented with a replica of Jon Snow’s sword from Game Of Thrones. This moment is made possible by the kind folks at New Zealand’s The Hits Radio, who offered Ed a combo belated birthday/Game Of Thrones premiere present. Ed apparently loves swords (who knew?), and he’s also a massive GoT fan, so it stands to reason that Ed would be pretty pumped. But not even the hosts could anticipate his ultra-giddy reaction.
Compiling a list of the most influential modern metal guitar players is intimidating. There was no way to do this without pissing a bunch of people off. I did my best to quantify which guitar players’ mark was being felt the most by the up and coming generation of new bands and musical movements in the realm of all things heavy. Whose legacy stood the test of time? Why is player “A” more influential than player “B”? Is there empirical evidence to support these arguments? These are the burning questions. There are some tremendously phenomenal players who did not make this list because their significance will not be known for some time. There are some players who made a big splash initially, but stature has waned in recent years. There are some genres like Black Metal where I had difficulty pinpointing 1 or 2 specific players that stood out among the slew of pioneers.
This is a very important PSA, so sit down and take notes. Sixteen years ago, a doe-eyed pop star named Mandy Moore set out for total music domination with her groundbreaking classic “Candy.” However, underground indie acts like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera overshadowed this IRL empress, so she was never considered more than a bubblegum clone. This is a grave injustice, because Moore is actually the coolest — and most talented — pop act to emerge in the late ’90s/early ’00s. Class is in session.
