With biopics being released and some reportedly in the works, many of us may have forgotten to look to the theater when it comes to rock storytelling, because this new play set for an off-Broadway debut in 2019 has the potential of being incredible.

AC/DC's debut album High Voltage was released 42 years ago today (April 30.) The album features some of the band's biggest fan favorites, including "T.N.T." and "It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock 'N' Roll)," but those pesky critics at Rolling Stone didn't think too highly of the Aussie's debut effort.
Led Zeppelin’s self-titled debut album was released 49 years ago today (January 12.) Besides being one of the best albums of all time, Led Zeppelin also has one of the best opening tracks of all time, too.
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?)
