This Is “War”

se'vonSe’von has achieved next level status over the last couple of years, and he just keeps bringing it. His latest track, “War,” created with B Sims and The Coalition, is a classic, foreboding, head-nodding beat with a killer hook. Se’von owns this one, spitting with the intensity of a man truly preparing for war. Don’t sleep on Se’von Legend. Full version available at iTunes.

Completely 'Satchurated'

Hell yes! Joe Satriani has come out with his first 3D theatrical concert film movie entitled – yep, you guessed it – Satchurated. By the way, how badass is that name? Filmed in Montreal, Canada during  2010’s Wormhole Tour, this movie is finally making it to the big screen! Unfortunately, that big screen is in Australia and only for one night: Wednesday, March 7th. But don’t be too sad, it’ll be in stores soon…

Directed by GRAMMY and EMMY award-winning filmmakers Pierre & Francois Lamoureux and produced by Cinemusica & Fogolabs, this movie is jam-packed full of the latest audio and video production standards – ten 2D and 3D cameras with 7.1 Dolby Digital sound. The brothers are recognized for having directed and produced concert films/documentaries for RUSH, The Who, Harry Connick, Jr., Slipknot, Rihanna, The Pretenders, Zappa Plays Zappa, Branford Marsalis, Cowboy Junkies, Collective Soul, Ben Harper, Willie Nelson, Deep Purple, The Stray Cats and others. So if you got a 3D TV, this is absolutely a recommended buy!

Sound And Vision: Guns N' Roses? Joan Jett? Why the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Is on the Verge of Becoming a Joke?

Last month when the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced its fifteen nominees for induction in 2012, the organization really outdid itself”and not in a good way! Donovan? Not again! Erik B. & Rakim? Not before LL Cool J! Joan Jett and the Blackhearts?

What? No “Weird Al” Yankovic? Hasn’t he been eligible for four years?

The Hall of Fame has been scraping from the B-list for a while now, but the voting body should take a closer look at the A-list. There’s still a lot of unheralded talent there, and that would not include Joan Jett. Yes, Jett’s former band, The Runaways, deserves credit for introducing girl power to hard rock, but did Joan Jett and the Blackhearts really earn a spot in the hallowed Hall based on the strength of one really awesome No. 1 smash, 1981’s “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll,” which the band didn’t even write? In the general scheme of things, aren’t they sort of a rock & roll footnote?

Not Linda Ronstadt. Perhaps the most influential female in ’70s rock, who spent the ’80s juggling genres from new wave to mariachi to the great American songbook, she’s the most deserving artist never to be nominated. And let’s talk about Pat Benatar and Stevie Nicks, who is already in the Hall of Fame as a member of Fleetwood Mac but whose solo career is far more worthy of the honor than Jett’s post-Runaways. At least the nominating committee finally had the good sense to give props to Heart, though I’ll eat my copy of the “Alone” Cassingle if the Wilson sisters actually get in.
