Chevy Metal: Covering classic rock deep cuts from Van Halen, The Stones, Tom Petty & Billy Joel the band have jammed on-stage with every member of the Foo Fighters and Jane’s Addiction as well as members of The Police, Motley Crue, Sex Pistols, Cheap Trick & Red Hot Chili Peppers just to name a few.
From their early songs like “King of Rock”, to the guitar driven “Rock Box” and of course the Aerosmith collaboration “Walk This Way”, Hip-Hop legends Run-D.M.C. have always been influenced by rock music. Looks like Rock N’ Roll has also influenced the fashion of music fanatic D.M.C. He ditched the Adidas jumpsuit and sneakers for a pair of black jeans and a rock band shirt.
Check out these cool promotional photos of The Beatles taken in 1967 for The Beatles “Magical Mystery Tour” movie. These rare photos show Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison as they were filmed and photographed playing soccer in a backyard setting.

Released in 1974, “Pussy Cats” is the tenth album by Harry Nilsson. It was produced by John Lennon during his infamous 18-month “Lost Weekend” period in Los Angeles. The album cover even had a hidden “inside joke” message on the album cover. Do you see the hidden message under the table???
After the 2016 Grammy Awards Paul McCartney of The Beatles & Wings, Beck and Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters went to a post Grammy Awards party hosted by rapper named Tyga Jenner-Kardashian at the Argyle in Hollywood, California. They were denied entrance because it was a VIP only party.
In 1967, the BBC commissioned The Beatles to come up with a song with a message understood by everyone for the Our World Broadcast. The band hit the studio on June 14, 1967 a mere 11 days before the live broadcast and wrote and recorded the anthem “All You Need Is Love”.
I came across the really cool candid photos of George Harrison and his wife Olivia enjoying some vacation time on a boat in sometime in 1975. The shirt Harrison is sporting is from saxophonist Tom Scott’s album “New York Connection” released in December 1975.
This is the most famous photo of Marc Bolan from T. Rex. Crazy enough, the front and back cover of the album have a double tie-in to The Beatles.
On December 3, 2015 I attended a portion of the once-in-a-lifetime Julien’s Auctions curated by Ringo Starr and wife Barbara Bach, featuring items from their London estate, and Beverly Hills and Monaco residences.
