Def Leppard Shed Tears, Stevie Nicks Is Hilarious at Rock Hall of Fame Ceremony

Even more than most awards shows, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame finds itself boxed in by ceremony. Realistically, there’s only so much you can do with a template that can rarely veers from performance / induction speech / acceptance speech: At best, you’ll have mind-blowing performances and touching speeches of genuine gratitude, grace […]

David Byrne Inducts Radiohead Into The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame

One of the most basic bits of Radiohead trivia is this: They named themselves after a Talking Heads song. Actually, they were called On A Friday first because they practiced on Fridays, but that's another story entirely. At some point they correctly decided "Radio Head," from the 1986 film and album … More »

Why Is the Rock Hall of Fame Inducting Fewer Black Artists Than Ever?

The Grammys have yet to overcome their lack of diversity, but music’s other conferrer of ultimate honors, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, initially showed an impressive color blindness. Its inaugural batch of inductees — the Class of ’86 — included 10 “performer” acts, and six of them were black. The next year, 15 […]

NAMM 2019: Phil Collen of Def Leppard draws a big crowd of fans old and new

The line of maybe 300 fans stretched a walkway where security guards barked orders to keep moving as soon as you got your autograph and a photo, but Phil Collen, guitarist for the hard rock band Def Leppard, seemed intent to give everyone at least a quick moment of his time. They’re the reason, after all, that his band was voted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year, said Collen, a longtime resident of Laguna Hills, standing next to a Jackson Guitars display of the new Phil Collen signat...

Joining She Shreds founder and editor Fabi Reyna on Friday were well-known artists such as Nancy Wilson of Heart, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and Cam, a singer-songwriter whose songs have been recorded by the likes of Sam Smith and Miley Cyrus, as well as emerging perfo...

NAMM 2019: 5 things we learned about festivals and the music industry from Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman

Kevin Lyman secured his place in rock history as the founder of Warped Tour, the longest-running traveling festival in North American history until last year when that mostly punk rock circus shut down after 24 years of music. Now 57, the Claremont native is a respectable somewhat elder statesman of the music industry. A chance encounter at NAMM a year ago led to him teaching college and graduate courses on the business, finally putting him, Lyman joked, on equal footing with Bad Religion singer...
