Meet A Rockin’ Multi-Unit School Of Rock Franchisee

New Post From The Franchise King® (A School Of Rock Franchise Location In Iowa) Before I share my interview with Greg Moore, who owns the School Of Rock location in West Des Moines-and his just-announced 2nd franchise location, Marion-Cedar-Rapids, Iowa, I need to share a few things. First off, Greg was my client. I guided him through the franchise-buying process. Secondly, we have a few things in common. The first thing? I lived in Iowa for a short time. As a matter of fact...

Who Invented Heavy Metal Music?: A Search for Origins

Where exactly did “heavy metal” start? Like a similar question—“what is the first rock and roll song?”–there’s not so much a direct answer as a spreading of ingredients over a number of years, all of which combine to create “heavy metal,” and its numerous sub-genres that have sprung forth from it. There’s not so much a year of origin as there is a year after which one cannot claim a beginning. (Now that’s a sentence!) If you’re confused, this quick history by Polyphonic will answer all o...

Keith Richards Demonstrates His Famous 5-String Technique (Used on Classic Stones Songs Like “Start Me Up,” “Honky Tonk Women” & More)

For the guitarist, alternate tunings expand the sonic possibilities of the instrument. But where, say, a progressive metal player will add a seventh or eighth string, pitch everything down, and get technical, the opposite is the case with “open” tunings in folk and blues. They are an ideal basis for slide guitar and three-chord, 12-bar vamps, and became the perfect platform for Keith Richards, giving him the room he needed to translate the music of his folk heroes into the gritty, distor...

‘It’s currently 1991’: why old Top of the Pops reruns continue to enchant

Fifteen years after it was axed, the iconic show is a drawing in nostalgia junkies by offering eclectic music, dodgy lip-syncing ... and lockdown escapismFor many of us, it was the soundtrack to our childhood. The opening riff of Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love still inspires an atavistic excitement in full-grown adults decades on. On Thursday – and later Friday – evenings, warbling singers and preening boybands would be beamed into homes across the nation as we waited to see which artist would ...

The Rolling Stones Jam with Muddy Waters for the First and Only Time at Chicago’s Legendary Checkerboard Lounge (1981)

Whatever marketing materials may claim, the Rolling Stones did not just happen upon Buddy Guy’s Checkerboard Lounge on Chicago’s South Side (before it closed, reopened in Hyde Park, then closed again for good) on a night when Muddy Waters happened to be there in 1981. And they did not spontaneously get invited to jam, as it seems, when they “climbed over tables” to get onstage with their hero and blues legends Buddy Guy and Junior Wells. A chance meeting, of course, would have been magic...

A tiny, invasive bug and the climate crisis are changing how guitars are made, and shifting the course of music history

Fender; Marianne Ayala/Insider Swamp ash is a wood prized by guitar makers and musicians for its light weight and resonant sound. But flooding, and a tiny bug, threaten the wood and the sound that is synonymous with rock music. Fender is phasing out ash after 70 years of use, and ash trees could soon disappear altogether. See more stories on Insider's business page. In 1970, when Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page recorded the iconic solo on "Stairway to Heaven," he was playing a 1959 Fend...

Google cofounder Sergey Brin has been working on a secretive airship company for over 4 years. Here's how the billionaire plans to use the 'air yacht' to deliver humanitarian aid.

Google cofounder Sergey Brin. REUTERS/Ruben Sprich Google cofounder Sergey Brin is building a secretive airship company called LTA. The airship will be climate-friendly and deliver humanitarian aid worldwide. Brin was inspired by the USS Macon, a massive airship built by the US Navy in the 1930s. See more stories on Insider's business page. If Sergey Brin has anything to do with it, the future of humanitarian aid could come in the form of giant airships roaming the skies. Brin, the Go...

Amoeba Records opens the doors to its massive new store in Hollywood

Michael Winslow, the “Man of 10,000 Sound Effects”, Impersonates the Sounds of Jimi Hendrix’s and Led Zeppelin’s Electric Guitars with His Voice

Even if you weren’t a huge fan of the Police Academy movies, there was one character that made them watchable: Larvell Jones, played by Michael Winslow, “The Man of a 10,000 Sound Effects.” His character is a sort of oddball presence throughout the series, whose ability to sound like a siren, a machine gun, a guard dog, or any number of things, invariably helps his team save the day. He’s been the only consistent character through all eight entries of the movie series, a brief television...

'Mixture of Jane's trendy records!!!': discover readers' cherished mixtapes

Following the death of Lou Ottens, creator of the cassette tape, Guardian readers share the romances, friendships and discoveries his invention generatedIn 1992 I started a degree in civil engineering at the University of Surrey.

I loved the Cure and Led Zeppelin and Carol loved dance music. We created a mixtape of songs that we both liked – no...

Jimmy Page and some of the song’s admirers explain its magic" (The Guardian): John Paul Jones has said the song’s first performance, at Ulster Hall in Belfast in March 1971, won no plaudits from the crowd – “They were all bored to tears waiting to hear something they knew” – though bootlegs of the show have it ending to perfectly respectful ...

Nick Kent: 'I was in the right place at the right time, on the wrong drugs'

The rock critic who revived British music writing at the NME in the 70s is back with his first novel – a caustic tale of rock megalomania Nick Kent, who is as close as British music journalism ever came to producing a legend, finally stopped writing about rock in 2007. “There was really nothing around that sparked my imagination,” he tells me. “There was no mystery, and rock’n’roll needs mystery.”So ended a singular odyssey that had begun 35 years earlier, in 1972, when Kent joined a then strugg...

A Visual History of The Rolling Stones Documented in a Beautiful, 450-Page Photo Book by Taschen

There is a certain look that screams rock ‘n’ roll—one part outlaw biker, one part psychedelic magician, one part pimp, one part circus performer…. But where did it come from? We could trace it back to Link Wray, Little Richard, Elvis, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins. But the Rolling Stones refined and perfected the look, as they refined and perfected the slurred, shambling barroom blues that became a signature sound at their peak. Even punks who rejected the rock star image couldn’t help looking like Ke...

Chris Hillman reveals Tom Petty might have gotten the Byrds to reunite while discussing new memoir

Chris Hillman says there was never any grand plan behind his decision to write about his life in music, a career that spans six decades as co-founder of legendary bands such as the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers, and his later success as the leader of the Desert Rose Band. “I started this as a fun project to leave something for my kids and grandkids,” he says from his Ventura home recently. “To write something about what Papa did, what dad did. “And the only other thing, there were so man...

Skyborne whales: The rise (and fall) of the airship

Large airships were too sensitive to wind gusts and too sluggish to win against aeroplanes. But today, they have a chance to make a spectacular return.For decades, die-hard fans of airships have had to accept the fact that their beloved airborne vessels had no chance of making their way back to air travel routes. The ever more technologically advanced aeroplanes are more comfortable and practical than these sluggish giants. Yet the situation changed over a year ago when people in Sweden started ...
