QSP-QUATRO SCOTT POWELL - Who can, who can

Suzi Quatro, born and raised in Detroit, was one of the best-known rock protagonists before the Heart sisters. This must have been due to the musical as well as liberal upbringing of her family of Italian descent. With her sisters Patti, Arlene and later Nancy she played from 1964 in the All-Girl-Garagerock-Band The Pleasure Seekers, which later changed its name to Cradle.

PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI - Do you speak italiano?

Premiata Forneria Marconi from Milan, PFM for short, were one of the most successful rock bands in their homeland in the seventies. Founded over forty-five years ago, the project continues to exist today with constantly changing members. The only remaining founding member is the 70-year-old singer and drummer Franz Di Cioccio. Musically, the current septet formation has always remained true to itself: complex progressive rock with a Mediterranean touch.

EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER - The Last Fanfare

Emerson, Lake & Palmer are history. Still in summer 2016 Lake and Palmer gave interviews about whether and how ELP will continue after Emerson's death. Already at that time Carl Palmer said: "Of course I am happy that there are obviously still enough people [...] who are interested in our compositions. I'm very proud of that. But ELP as such has become pure nostalgia for me. I'd rather look to the future, have my own projects, especially the Carl Palmer Band."

ASAF AVIDAN explains why the opposite of ascent does not have to mean crash

Asaf Avidan is no newcomer to the songwriting scene, but with his new album "The Study On Falling" he dares to make a new start. This not only applies to his voice, which was once confusingly similar to Janis Joplin's, but has now become an androgynous trademark, which is associated solely with the name Asaf Avidan. Never before has the Israeli bard with his still unusually high timbre sounded so haunting as on this CD. The topic of failure is only one of several aspects.

THE DARKNESS once again give free rein to their predilection for glam metal and queen choir songs

THE DARKNESS once again give free rein to their predilection for glam metal and queen choir songs

Although the British hard rockers The Darkness haven't delivered a weak album yet, it's already clear after a few runs that "Pinewood Smile" is at least as good as the famous debut "Permission To Land" (2003). Among the ten new songs there is not a single gap filler, and the attitude and playfulness of the band are absolutely stirring. A return to top form? You could say that

JIMI HENDRIX - The leap into the bottomless pit

JIMI HENDRIX - The leap into the bottomless pit

No, a reputation like Donnerhall did not precede Jimi Hendrix when he climbed out of the plane on 24 September 1966 in London at the side of his new manager, the ex-animal bassist Chas Chandler. But only a few months after his arrival the man from Seattle was on everyone's lips. And by the end of 1967 he had not only taken guitar playing, but rock music as a whole into a new dimension. "Suddenly this stranger comes running along, and all hell breaks loose," said Jack Bruce.
