    Sigh no more, my friends. You, too, can drink like a rock star. Or a banjo player. Mumford and Sons announced Sunday that they're creating their own ale to be served when they stop over in Lewes, England on their Gentlemen of the Road tour later this year.

    Silk Knives' Debut EP Is Hard to Define, But Easy to Like

    I discovered Silk Knives in my weekly hunt for a band name to tear apart, but when I noticed that they had a CD release scheduled I thought, "Well, let's take this doggy for a walk and see if it will piss on Old Lady Higglebottom's lawn."

    Question: Who the Hell Is Even In Guns N' Roses Nowadays?

    Tonight, Guns N' Roses plays what's being billed as an "intimate" performance at House of Blues. From our perspective here at Rocks Off, that's a good thing.

    The 8 Most Bro-Tastic Bands of All Time

    "Hipster." The word is older than you think: it pops up in an old Seinfeld episode where Jerry refers to Kramer as a "hipster doofus." It even predates that by many years.

    I didn't find out that Friday night's Vince Neil show was a pseudo-private gig until right before he went on. A company in town had hired the Motley Crue frontman for a party and decided to sell tickets for the event, to make up some cash against Neil's fee. Which explains the lack of promotion to ...
