12 years ago today, the world lost one of the greatest DJs of all time: John Peel.
For Americans, Peel may be best known as the man whose radio program gave birth to an ongoing series of in-studio performances by some of the most notable names in alternative music: the Peel Sessions. But Peel was much more than just a typical DJ. His opinions were held in such high regard that he could effectively make or break an artist with his remarks. Thankfully, it can be safely said that he made far more artists than he broke, with his shows regularly offering wide and varied playlists which included pop, rock, blues, jazz, prog, psychedelia, and any other genre that might happen to strike his fancy on a given day.

45 years ago today, The Grateful Dead released their second live double album, and although it’s technically a self-titled affair, it’s come to be known more familiarly by a name derived from its cover art; SKULL AND ROSES.

When you reach your 25th anniversary, people are supposed to celebrate by giving you a gift that’s made of sterling silver. In the case of Jane’s Addiction, they’re celebrating their own 25th anniversary by giving the fans a gift.
