Alice Cooper Constrictor 35th Anniversary

Alice Cooper Constrictor 35th Anniversary

AVAILABLE TODAY AT 2PM (EDT)! Alice Cooper's classic album Constrictor, released on September 22, 1986, is celebrating its 35th anniversary! Constrictor was a fresh start for Cooper after a three year hiatus from the music industry following DaDa, and was arguably the best work he put forth in years. Cooper succeeded in re-establishing himself by bringing back the energy that had made Killer and Welcome to My Nightmare so popular, and in the process regained his crown as the king of Shock Rock!  There is plenty to enjoy on the album, with "Teenage Frankenstein", "Give It Up", "Life And Death Of The Party", "Trick Bag" and "Crawlin'" providing a refreshing, melodic, approach.

Rush Roll The Bones 30th Anniversary

Rush Roll The Bones 30th Anniversary

PURCHASE HERE On September 3rd, 1991, Rush released their 14th album, Roll the Bones. The album has a taste of rap, a bit of funk, and a bigger “groove” than fans expected from Rush at the time. Neil chose to be more straight-ahead, leaving room for Geddy's bass playing to be more aggressive. "Roll The Bones' is the perfect title, because through all of the thoughts that I go through on the album, about all these nasty things that happen, and all these terrible things that could happen to you: a drunk in a stolen car could run over you on your...
