This Day In

35 years ago today, the original lineup of The Dream Syndicate had their very first jam session together.

This is not to say that the band played their first proper show on this date, mind you. That wouldn’t happen until a little bit into 1982, and when it did, it took place at Club Lingerie in Hollywood, California. No, this was just the first time that all of the players – Steve Wynn, Kendra Smith, Karl Precoda, and Dennis Duck – got together in the same room and played music as a single entity.

Happy Birthday: Lars Ulrich
It’s Lars Ulrich’s birthday today, and to celebrate, we’ve picked four of our favorite covers that Metallica has turned in over their course of their career. Not that we couldn’t have selected several more, but we thought we’d keep our cool and limit ourselves to four. If you’re a fan, then you’ve probably heard and loved at least two of these already, but if the other two haven’t crossed your radar up ‘til now, then we’re happy to have introduced you to them.

Rhino Factoids
38 years ago today, The Rezillos played a show that proved to be their last, except not really. It’s a little hard to explain.
