Last year’s She Rocks Awards ended on a high note with honoree Gloria Gaynor singing her inspiring hit “I Will Survive.” Little did anyone know what the rest of 2020 had in store: a global pandemic that continues to keep the live entertainment industry largely shut down.

The 2021 She Rocks Awards, which is typically held at House of Blues Anaheim in conjunction with the NAMM Show at the Anaheim Convention Center, has pivoted to a virtual experience due to the contin...

Peter Frampton talks new memoir ahead of Cameron Crowe virtual event at LA’s Book Soup

For Peter Frampton, the idea of a memoir was always on his list of things to do, but never today, not this year, that’s for the future. Frampton definitely had stories to tell just from his youth on the outskirts of London: He was friends with David Jones (soon to be known to the world as David Bowie); his teenage rock band was produced by Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones; he played in another teen band that toured with The Who. And the stories kept coming: When he was 18, he joined Steve Marrio...
