TLC’s Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas Opens Up About the Future of TLC and More

One third of the largest selling American girl group of all time. Exotic chiseled beauty compounded by abs that won’t quit. A little girl lost vulnerability when it comes to love and other matters.

Guitar Talk with Finch’s Alex Linares

Finch guitarist Alex Linares has some basic but wise advice for upcoming guitarists: Be obsessed. “I think you have to be obsessed with your instrument,” Linares told Gibson.com. “You have to be completely, 100% dedicated.” “I grew up in a time when computers just saw outside in the corner and were there to do school reports. I entertained myself 14...

Alex Lifeson of Rush turns 61 on August 27 2014. Why celebrate Alex's 61st? Well, Rush are planning a 41stAnniversary Tour for 2015, so Gibson.com thought we'd stay as kookily contrary as the legendary Toronto trio.
