Today (December 11) is Nikki Sixx's birthday, and to celebrate, we thought we'd look back on some of the pivotal moments in rock history that lead to the creation of Motley Crue and some of the biggest bands ever. Enjoy!
On August 29, 1959, an up-and-coming band called The Quarry Men played the opening night of a new teen hangout called the Casbah Coffee Club in Liverpool, England. Of course, that band would go on to become The Beatles. (Perhaps you’ve heard of them?)
Former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony celebrates his birthday today (June 20,) and while he’s kept himself busy playing in Chickenfoot and The Circle, many are still wondering if we’ll see him in Van Halen again.
Wished you were a fly on the wall during Van Halen’s crazy 70s and 80s run with David Lee Roth? As the band’s manager, Noel E. Monk was that fly, and he’s sharing his stories with the world in a new book.
Chester Bennington turns 41 today (March 20th,) and if there's one thing that sets the Linkin Park frontman apart from other lead singers, it's his powerful scream. In honor of his birthday, we're looking at Bennington and other awesome screams in rock. Enjoy!
Van Halen’s self-titled debut was released 39 years ago today (February 10), and besides being considered by many to be the band’s best record, Van Halen also has the notable distinction of being one of only 18 debut albums certified Diamond (10 million copies sold) by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA.)
Love supposedly means never having to say you're sorry, but Sammy Hagar has decided he loves Van Halen again and is apologizing for the harsh things he's said about Eddie and Alex Van Halen over the years.
