Halestorm “Here’s To Us”
Joe Hottinger, Lzzy Hale, Arejay Hale, Josh Smith
Halestorm “Here’s To Us”
 
Read below and give a listen! What do you think Rockaholics?
 
ARTISTdirect has teamed up with Grammy-winners Halestorm to premiere this lyric video and photo montage for their new single "Here's to Us" from their album The Strange Case Of.... It's also at radio now! 

It's the kind of ballad that immediately tugs on your heartstrings, and it's an example of just how powerful Halestorm are as songwriters. With Lzzy Hale's massive voice taking center stage, you'll be singing "Here's To Us" long after the lyric video finishes. Halestorm have come a long way, and they keep getting better and better with every song and show.

Also, as a bonus, the song features Slash, and Lzzy has even performed it with him live!

About the album's evolution, Hale told us, "We were chasing after whatever got us excited. In a lot of ways, that made the record what it is."

Keep it up girl!

Watch the lyric video for "Here's To Us" only on ARTISTdirect.com below.

BLACK SABBATH: Set U.K. Chart Record
Black Sabbath have set a U.K. chart record for the longest gap between number-one albums.
13 bowed at number-one, 42 years and eight months after their second album Paranoidhit the top. That breaks Bob Dylan's record of 38 years between New Morning in 1970 and Together Through Life in 2009. Sabbath's last Top 10 U.K. album was 1983's Born Again.
Sabbath are expected to score their first number-one album in the U.S. when the sales figures from last week are released on Wednesday.

AXL ROSE: Rock's Biggest Offender
AXL ROSE: Rock's Biggest Offender
 
Hahah I have to agree with most of these.  What are the most annoying things do in your opinion?
 
Rolling Stone has compiled a list of the 10 most annoying things that bands do at rock concerts, and without naming names, Guns N’ Roses’ Axl Rosewould top the list as the number-one most annoying habit is “show up ridiculously late.”
2) Exclude key band members. “When Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac and Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones decided to scale back their lives and get off the road, we would have all preferred to see them with their bands still. The shows suffered from their absence, but people have a right to quit. A band isn't the mafia.”
3) Play too much from the new album. Culprits include Neil Young and Radiohead.
4) Only perform the hits. Culprits include Elton John and Billy Joel.
5) Play anything resembling a medley.
6) Ignore the music of your beloved former band.  
7) Play perverse arrangements of your songsBob Dylan is the biggest offender of this one.
8) Never vary the set listBruce Springsteen and Pearl Jam can never be accused of this.
9) Solo. “This will have some dissenters. But if you aren't Neil PeartGinger BakerEric Clapton or a musician on that level of genius, nobody wants to hear you solo.”
10) Squeeze every possible penny out of fans. “We know the concert industry is a business, and with record sales sinking to new lows every year, it's just about the only place where artists can make real money. That said: tickets shouldn't be $300 unless those seats are actually on the stage. Meet-and-greets should be nice perks for your most devoted fans, not ways to squeeze more money out of people -- some acts actually charge upwards of $1,000 for a quick handshake and a photo.”

JACK WHITE: Saves Detroit Landmark
 
Jack White has been revealed as the anonymous donor that saved the Detroit Masonic Temple from foreclosure last month.
White, who's performed at the Temple many times and whose mother worked as an usher at the venue, paid the entire $142,000 balance in taxes. In announcing White’s identity as the anonymous donor, Detroit Masonic Temple Association said that they would be changing the name of the theater inside the building from the Cathedral Theater to the Jack White Theater.
 
For more and pictures of this beautiful venue check out the link below.

A website called stereotype.fm used a survey answers from more than 100.000 people to come up bizarre personality traits for fans of various musicians. The possibilities are endless with this rad site! Check it out for yourself! http://stereotype.fm/
 
Check out the complete list with all the songs we featured and their fan facts via the link below!

I say take this useful playlist and surprise your peeps with the factoids!
http://kisw.tunegenie.com/u/__znjWJ0YSSKBC2kr2EE2Yg/sis-if-you-like-blank-you-are-more-likely-to/
 
In 2013, when the vast majority of music fans have Spotify and iTunes and the average listener’s taste is so schizophrenic that they’re into both Taylor Swift and Metallica, it’s getting harder and harder to define a person’s personal likes and dislikes purely by what bands they like. Thankfully there’s a new website that seeks to answer some of those questions—or at least what band’s fans are more likely to be conservative or pick their noses when no one’s looking.
Stereotype.fm attempts to determine personality traits of a band's fans by compiling data from more than 100,000 surveys conducted on sister site Tastebuds.fm. While some of the results are less than surprising—Hilary Duff fans are least like to have ever smoked weed, for example—others shine a light on the broad-based fandom of some of today's more polarizing or underappreciated bands. Who would have guessed, for instance, that 22% of Alanis Morissette fans have had a threesome?
More fun facts: Fugazi fans are fairly likely to have attended a private school, while Bonnie "Prince" Billy boasts a wealth of Atheist fans. But Fun and Mumford & Sons have a healthy conservative fanbase, though somewhat hearteningly, only 8% of Tastebuds users surveyed identified themselves as leaning to the far right.
Plug some band names into the search engine and play around with the system for a few minutes. The results might just be surprising. [via Buzzfeed]
