AMPED™ FEATURED ALBUM OF THE WEEK: RICK SPRINGFIELD/WORKING CLASS DOG: 40th ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL LIVE EDITION

If you only remember Rick Springfield for the hit single “Jessie’s Girl” and his stint as Dr. Noah Drake on General Hospital in the early ‘80s, you really don’t know Rick Springfield. Born in Australia, he joined rock quartet Zoot – which also featured future Little River Band member Beebs Birtles - in 1969.

AMPED™ FEATURED ALBUM OF THE WEEK: KREATOR/HATE ÜBER ALLES

Formed in Essen, Germany in 1982, Kreator remains one of the most influential Thrash Metal bands of all time.

AMPED™ FEATURED ALBUM OF THE WEEK: ANGEL OLSEN/BIG TIME

Angel Olsen is a critically acclaimed singer/songwriter with a story to tell. And like real life, that story evolves, twists, turns, and heads off into directions that she may not have intended when she first began writing songs as a young teen. And somewhere between the time she joined the band Good Fight when she was 16 to the release of her debut album when she was 25, her story multiplied and became stories. Different [...]

ALL OR NOTHING AT ALL: An EXCLUSIVE Q&A with MARK TREMONTI

STEVE SCHNEE: First off, TREMONTI SINGS SINATRA is an immensely enjoyable and joyful release filled with love and reverence to Frank and his music. Admittedly, I never knew this side of you, and it makes me rethink everything that I’ve ever known about Mark Tremonti. Is this an album that will surprise your most hardcore fans? MARK TREMONTI: I think this album will definitely surprise my fanbase if they haven't heard of it already. That [...]

AMPED™ FEATURED ALBUM OF THE WEEK: MAVIS STAPLES & LEVON HELM/CARRY ME HOME

When worlds collide, they can often create a universe that is greater than the sum of both worlds… and so much more. So, using that analogy when talking about music, the end results are either glorious and inspiring or insipid and dull. To be honest it all depends on chemistry and how naturally things fall into place. To make things work, they cannot be forced. The 1986 collaboration between rockers Aerosmith and rap trio Run [...]
