'Stairway to Gilligan's Island' mashup from 1978 covered by Puddles Pity Party

Did you know that in 1978 a San Francisco band called Little Roger & the Goosebumps recorded a mashup song that blends Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" with the theme to the sixties TV sitcom about seven castaways? I sure didn't! Well, that 6'8" clown Puddles Pity Party did and now he's performed this cover of it — yay!

The Beastie Boys & Rick Rubin Reunite and Revisit Their Formative Time Together in 1980s NYC

The Beastie Boys’ record-shattering Licensed to Ill is thirty-four years old. This fact might mean nothing to you, or it might mean that you are thirty-four years older than the moment the album came out in November of 1986, and suburban parents around the country, maybe even your parents, freaked out in unison. The album was a stroke of genius from producer Rick Rubin, delivering hip-hop safe for white kids while also giving them permission to be as obnoxious as possible. Ostensibly a r...

Book Review: Empires of the Sky

A Concise Look at Human Flight with an Unexpected Focus With my knowledge bank bereft all but the most rudimentary information about Zeppelins (aka rigid airships), my curious eye immediately focused on the tail end of the Zeppelin under the title, Empires of the Sky. (Following the airship to the backside of the dust cover identified it as the Graf Zeppelin.) The subhead of Alexander Rose’s 600-page tome—Zeppelins, Airplanes, and Two Men’s Epic Duel to Rule the World—lured me between the cover...

John Mayer Teaches Guitarists How to Play the Blues in a 45-Minute Masterclass

Playing the blues is easy, many a budding guitarist thinks—their starry eyes fixed on the mathiest, proggiest, djent-iest (or whatever) guitar pyrotechnics of their favorite 7- or 8-string slinger. Learn a minor pentatonic blues scale, a few barre chords, some sexy bends, a 12-bar progression and you’re off, right? Why spend time trying to play like Albert King (Jimi Hendrix’s idol) or Buddy Guy when you’re reaching for the ultimate sweep-picking technique, or whatever, in the competitiv...

CS Soapbox: Why Star Wars Needs Taika Waititi

CS Soapbox: Why Star Wars Needs Taika Waititi Taika Waititi is a man that defies description. The kind of artist you can imagine as a child, equipped with a magic marker, running around town, drawing mustaches on anything that even vaguely resembled a face (he probably still does this). The writer/director has become renowned for his inimitable brand of irreverence—something you wouldn’t normally associate with big-budget features. However, Hollywood, or rather Disney, can’t get enough of i...

Led Zeppelin's "Ramble On" -- what makes this song great?

Speaking of one of the Internet's coolest music teachers, Rick Beato... in the most recent episode of his "What Makes This Song Great?," he breaks down Led Zeppelin's rock classic, "Ramble On," from Led Zeppelin II. While Rick's channel is clearly targeted at fellow musicians and students of music, even a failed guitar player and crappy drummer like myself can find real satisfaction in these song deconstructions. If nothing else, it's great to hear the isolated song elements and how they all ...

Led Zeppelin are safe from copyright infringement in Stairway to Heaven thanks to “pre-1976 music” law

Led Zeppelin have won a case against them (again) that claims they stole elements of their huge track Stairway to Heaven from another thanks to a concrete copyright law for older recordings. Earlier in the decade Led Zeppelin were taken to court by songwriter Randy Wolfe over one of their most famous tracks. Randy alleged that the British band had heard his band Spirit’s song ‘Taurus’ before writing ‘Stairway to Heaven’ and took elements from it. The court case initially concluded that ...
