Rhino Factoids
18 years ago this month, Gordon Lightfoot – a music legend in any country, yes, but a true icon in his native Canada – was part of the inaugural group of celebrities to be honored with a star on the Canadian Walk of Fame in Toronto.

Remembering Chris Squire

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a year since we had to say goodbye to Chris Squire, founding member of Yes and one of rock’s most notable bassists.

It’s hard to imagine a lineup of Yes without Chris Squire: not only was he a founding member of the band – he and Jon Anderson formed the band back in 1968 – but he was the only member to have appeared on all 21 of their studio albums to date. The show goes on, however, and it does so with Squire’s explicit blessing: he pointedly asked Alan White and Billy Sherwood to continue the legacy of the band. This should come as no surprise, though, given the various trials and tribulations Yes has endured and survived over the years.

Six-Pack: Guest Guitar  from Jeff Beck
Guitar legend Jeff Beck turns 72 today, and we’re of the belief that it’s going to be one of the best years he’s had in quite some time: he’s just issued a new single, “Live in the Dark,” and his new album, Loud Hailer, his first full-length studio album in half a dozen years, is set for release on Atco on July 15. In celebration of his birthday, we’ve put together a playlist which features his solo work within our catalog, but we’ve also compiled a six-pack of tracks featuring Beck as guest guitarist, some of which you’ve almost certainly heard and a few which you probably haven’t.

Doing a 180: Bad Company, Live ‘77

Rhino has made it a point to reissue classic albums on 180-gram vinyl on a regular basis. This is the latest to get that treatment. You're welcome.

For this installment of “Doing a 180,” we’ve got a release that we’d like to think will go down in history as a classic album, but the truth of the matter is that it’s technically only been out for less than two months.

Six-Pack: Bobby Gillespie Singing Outside the Scream
Bobby Gillespie turns 54 today, and if Primal Scream’s latest album – Chaosmosis, which hit stores this March – is any indication, he doesn’t seem to have lost a step. To celebrate his birthday, we’ve put together a playlist which features some of the band’s earlier work: Sonic Flower Groove, Screamadelica, Give Out But Don’t Give Up, and Vanishing Point are all in the mix for your listening enjoyment. Beyond that, though, we’ve also compiled a six-pack of occasions when Gillespie popped up in projects other than those of his most famous band.

Six-Pack: Classic Singles Produced by Todd Rundgren
1. Badfinger, “Baby Blue” – Although their story is a tragic cautionary tale about how things can go horribly wrong in rock ‘n’ roll, Badfinger nonetheless produced a number of wonderful pop singles in their heyday, including this one, which got a new lease on life thanks to the closing moments of AMC’s Breaking Bad.
