Now Available: The Doors, Other Voices / Full Circle
There are some who say that The Doors ended on July 3, 1971, the day Jim Morrison died, and fair enough, everyone's allowed their own opinion. The fact of the matter, though, is that those individuals are making a statement which is factually inaccurate: the band very much remained an ongoing concern beyond that fateful day in Paris, issuing two further albums which are - for the very first time - available together in a two-CD set.

Bob Lefsetz: Welcome To My World
What can I tell you, I didn't start buying every Kinks album until their hits were done. I owned the "Greatest Hits," but with limited cash it wasn't until I was a senior in high school that I purchased "Arthur," I loved hearing "Victoria."

Rhino Factoids
Last year, we did a post about the anniversary of Frank Sinatra founding his own label, Reprise Records, and thereby being able to legitimately describe himself as the Chairman of the Board. This year, we decided we'd focus in on when the Chairman realized that running a label wasn't the easiest thing in the world and decided to sell 2/3 of Reprise to Warner Brothers, which - big surprise - happened 52 years ago today.

Steve Jones

It had to happen eventually: one of the Sex Pistols has hit the big 6-0.

Yes, Steve Jones, the axe man whose guitar work graces the classic album Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols - and, lest we forget, the gentleman who brought us Jonesy's Jukebox - turns 60 years old today. Why, it's enough to make an old punk cry, it is...

Rod Stewart You Wear It Well

43 years ago today, a song went to #1 on the UK Singles chart that went on to be performed on an episode of The Facts of Life with Blair, Jo, Natalie, and Tootie contributing back-up vocals, and…hang on, what?!?

We're very sorry: someone in the research department didn't check their facts (and very, very clearly didn't actually listen to the song in question) because they've mistaken the 1985 Debarge single “You Wear It Well” for Rod Stewart's “You Wear It Well.” As far as we know, Stewart's single was not featured in an episode of The Facts of Life, although it can be heard playing in the camp-tastic 1978 Joan Collins film The Stud, an achievement which in some circles is viewed as a status symbol of inestimable value.
