Who knew? Apparently Pink Floyd made an official promo video for Money from the legendary Dark Side of the Moon album back in 1973, but it has somehow managed to not be available on the internet until now. So let’s check it out and see how they did with the 41 year old technology:

Soundgarden’s legendary Superunknown album is celebrating its 20 anniversary this year, so Chris Cornell is breaking out some details about it that you probably didn’t know…like the clown that inspired the album’s name! Here’s some more on the album from Rolling Stone magazine
If you were watching the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on HBO this past weekend, you may have seen this little preview of the new series “Sonic Highways” coming this fall. That is the series that Dave Grohl is producing that showcases the making of the new Foo Fighters album, which was recorded in 8 different studios in 8 different cities across the country. We know the album is coming out in November, and now we can’t wait to hear it!!!
For the second year in a row, Metallica hosted Metallica Night at AT&T Park in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago. And once again this year we sent a lucky KCAL Rocker up to enjoy the fun and a great weekend in the City By The Bay. But if you didn’t win, the band is offering up a free download of their version of the National Anthem they performed before the game. Watch it on the video below, and then grab the MP3 here!
A little something for you as we kick into a Zep At The Top Weekend, it isn’t very often that you get to hear a rare previously unreleased instrumental song that Led Zeppelin recorded during the session for Zep II, but that is exactly what you have above. It’s a song called “La La” and it is included on the companion disc on the Led Zeppelin II re-issue coming out on Tuesday. Part of it sounds absolutely “Zeppy” and part absolutely doesn’t. Listen for your chance to win ‘em before you can buy ‘em all weekend. And catch the special with more of the cool stuff you’ll be getting on the re-issues of the first 3 albums and interviews with Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones tonight at 11pm with Patrick and then again on Sunday morning at 7am with Razz. Enjoy the Hammer of the Gods dropping on the IE at the top of every hour this weekend!
Here’s some more details on the previously unreleased tune from Rolling Stone magazine.
The Foo Fighters have been setting up shop in the desert to record their new album, and little bits of info keep trickling out via social media. First it was a shot of some master tapes referring to their 8th album.
Next there was a shot of Dave messing around with a bb gun, and those that have been there saw that they were working at the Rancho de la Luna Studios in Joshua Tree:
And earlier today, Joe Walsh posted on Twitter a shot of him with Taylor Hawkins and Dave Grohl saying, “Look who I ran into in Joshua Tree!”:
He later told the Hollywood Reporter, “I was a Foo Fighter for two days and played on a track of theirs that’s gonna come out.”.
Oh, and now we see that there is going to be an HBO show documenting the making of the new album!
Can’t wait to hear it!
