Rayman’s Experience With Windows 8 [Review]

I guess you'd call me a Mac guy, I've used Apple products years before it was cool to use Apple products. At work we use windows based computers, and I have one of my own at home as well. My home computer runs Windows Vista, which most people know is a real dud.That being said, it did serve my needs for four years, and because I do the bulk of my computer work here at the radio station, I had no reason to upgrade.

Aerosmith, ‘Can’t Stop Lovin’ You’ – Song Review

Red flags were raised when it was learned that one of the songs on Aerosmith's new record, 'Music from Another Dimension,' was a duet with country superstar Carrie Underwood. The very thought of it seemed more manufactured by the folks at 'American Idol,' which Underwood won in 2005 and Steven Tyler was a judge for two seasons, than a mutual ad

Jimi Hendrix, ‘Somewhere’ – Song Review

Jimi Hendrix is one of the most exhaustively chronicled musicians in rock music history. Though he released just three studio albums in his lifetime, he has been the subject of a seemingly inexhaustible series of mostly-exploitative posthumous releases.

On March 5, Experience Hendrix hopes to rectify some of that with the release of 'People, Hell & Angels,' and now you can get your first listen to a track from that collection titled 'Somewhere.'

The Beatles, ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ – Film Review

Going into the last quarter of 1967, the Beatles couldn’t get any bigger. Their masterwork, ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,’ pretty much changed the way pop music was made, sounded and consumed. They had transcended the rock ‘n’ roll ghetto, entering the final phase of a career that glided past pop music’s boundaries and into a wide-open realm of exploration and experimentation.

The Rolling Stones, ‘Charlie Is My Darling – Ireland 1965′ – DVD Review

In 1965, the Rolling Stones’ manager, Andrew Loog Oldham, asked filmmaker Peter Whitehead to accompany the group on a two-day trip tour of Ireland following the massive success of ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.’

Whitehead shot the band onstage, backstage and outside of the shows. The result, ‘Charlie Is My Darling,’ is one of rock’s most legendary lost movies, with a complicated history -- essentially, it never was released, and the small amount of footage that has surfaced over the years didn’t tell the whole story.

Aerosmith, ‘What Could Have Been Love’ – Song Review

If you want more guitars, more ‘Legendary Child,’ more of the much-hyped Jack Douglas sound of Aerosmith‘s rockin’ ’70s, then their new single is not going to satisfy. You might be better off checking out the band’s other new song, ‘Lover Alot,’ instead.

‘What Could Have Been Love’ is the AC radio hit the group needs to reach a wide audience and sell a ton of copies of ‘Music From Another Dimension‘ on Nov. 6.
