Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider talks about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fames latest exhibit “Louder Than Words: Rock, Power and Politics”
Dee Snider is the out spoken, wild hair front man of the heavy metal band Twisted Sister. Dee is currently one of the subjects in a recent exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame titled “Louder Than Words: Rock, Power and Politics”.
Punk mainstay Harley Flanagan is often recognized as one of the most influential members of the NY hardcore/punk scene of the early 1980’s.
Former As I Lay Dying guitarist and current Wovenwar guitarist Phil Sgrosso talks about his latest project Poison Headache.
Trivium co-guitarist Cory Beaulieu discusses the bands latest album, their upcoming performance at the inaugural “Rock N’ Derby” event and his thoughts on the changing tour landscape.
The writer-director spoke about bringing the compelling true life story of a mathematical genius to the screen with stars Jeremy Irons and Dev Patel.
Star of “Key & Peele” opens in their feature comedy “Keanu” and spoke about it while promoting the Tribeca premiere of Mike Birbiglia’s “Don’t Think Twice”
Host of Radio Classics on Sirius/XM
The Welsh actor portrays notorious war traitor Benedict Arnold on this “Don’t Miss” season of AMC’s historical drama.
Tom Hiddleston and Oscar-winning director Susanne Bier spoke with me at the Tribeca Film Festival about their hit spy series “The Night Manager” which premieres this week on AMC.
Actress/Musician/Comedian Margaret Cho tells us about the album, her current project with Amazon.com and about just what happened at The Stress Factory on March 26th.
Bella D. pushes the boundaries of artistic hard rock with a unique signature blend of operatic vocals and intricate steampunk themed storytelling.
Like the best laid plans of a “Saturday Night Live” inspired film, the bits only work in small doses. Exposing the girls to 90 minutes of screen time leads to a lot of hit-and-miss jokes and outrageous situations.
The new installment is pretty damn funny and stands as tall as the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.
We’ve seen “The Infiltrator” before. There are plenty of movies about the lengthy history of the worldwide drug war. But Cranston’s multi-faceted acting abilities create tension and heart pounding action where there isn’t.
“Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” has four actors that have no chemistry and are recycling vulgar jokes and punchlines from much better films. This movie should have been called “Zac, Aubrey, Adam and Anna Wanted to go to Hawaii”.
“The Secret Life of Pets” is from the same studio that brought you the adorable Minions from the “Despicable Me” films, and the animation is amazing. One scene finds our two pups in water that looks so realistic you can feel the wetness.
“The Legend of Tarzan” is a contrived, silly blockbuster. But on that same note, it’s an entertaining, and funny, summer escape.
Told with the same exuberance as the filmmakers being profiled, “RAIDERS!” shares the backstory of the production, including footage both from the film and behind the scenes.
Based on Roald Dahl’s book, in the hands of director Spielberg, “The BFG” becomes a new masterpiece that the whole family will enjoy.
“The Purge: Election Year” is the best of three, but still more of the same. It’s not a smart, tongue-in-cheek look at our inherently violent culture, race relations, or the current American class struggle. But it’s a chance to watch and cheer on our most animalistic tendencies, killing people who are holding us down.
Five stars. An unconventional spin on the tried-and-true old mentor meeting his younger match that manages to be action packed, unpredictable and heartfelt without veering into the saccharine territory oft trod by coming of age stories…Julian Dennison delivers a star-making performance.
Don’t let the bands comedic look and nature fool you as each of the 4 members show tremendous disciple at their instruments.
Celebrated American rock band Against Me! are proud to announce the Friday, September 16 release of its highly anticipated forthcoming full-length album titled ‘Shape Shift With Me”.
From cover to cover Doe and DeSavia and crew nail it. Aside from actually being around during this specific time I don’t think you could get any closer nor could it be anymore real.
