Win a Totally Sweet Rock Hall Fan Package

Sweet: Win a Copy of Dan Auerbach’s Solo Debut, Keep it Hid, on Wonderful Vinyl

I'm still working my way through my initial listen of Dan Auerbach's first solo album, Keep it Hid, and what can I say? It's Dan from the Black Keys. It's gritty, bluesy rock with that same voice, the one of a battle tested, old soul with a prize fighter's resilience, and the same guitar work: One moment it's blazing with intensity, and the next, it's carrying the heft of a thousand heartbreaks.This time around, he's got a backing ...READ MORE

Win The Libertines’ Time for Heroes in Time for The Holidays

Why The Libertines and why now? Because three years after Pete Doherty's drug problems dissolved his partnership with Carl Barat, John Hassall, and Gary Powell, no UK guitar rock band has been able to top them. Lord knows the English press has tried. This year it was The View and as scrappy as those lads were, and as much as they tried to emulate The Libertines -- in sound and in character -- they weren't The Libertines.The Liber...READ MORE
