Tony Iommi - Black Sabbath's Iron Man

The tag “guitar legend” is sometimes thrown around. But it is truly deserved for Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi. A quiet-spoken riff machine, Iommi is a guitar great. His agile but doomy riffs have influenced Metallica, Nirvana, Eddie Van Halen, Zakk Wylde, Queens of the Stone Age and just about every metal band you can think of. But what of the man himself? And what of new Black Sabbath songs? Tony Iommi recently published his must-read memoirs, Iron Man: My Journey Through Heaven And Hell with Black Sabbath. It contains some near...

Clinton Gregory Returns After Taking Short 17-Year Break

Clinton Gregory has emerged from his 17-year hiatus with a bang. There is nothing subtle about his latest effort, “Too Much Ain’t Enough.” The cover aptly features Gregory posing with a vintage Rolls Royce. The fifth generation fiddler cut an album steeped in authentic country music. In a genre obsessed with crossover stardom and chart position, it is a refreshing back to basics anomaly. In the early 1990’s Gregory released six national recording projects and 11 charted singles, most notably, “(If It Weren’t For Country Music) I’d Go Crazy.” Six years later...

Steve Vai Tells The Story Of Light

Whenever the topic of great guitar shredders arises, Steve Vai‘s name inevitably comes up, usually first. Even as a central figure in the height of the Eighties shred movement, he was always more comfortable in a supporting role, admittedly happier when driving the sound of Whitesnake and The David Lee Roth Band while the flamboyant frontmen garnered the attention. Ironically, he now has one of the flashiest guitar styles and shows in the business. On the other hand, he is a quiet student of the human experience and an unrelenting seeker ...

Introducing TJ Boyce

Houston native TJ Boyce admits that he is having a rough time handling some of the promotional duties in support of his latest single, “No Panties.” The sensual lyrics of the song call for him to pose with several amazingly beautiful women for publicity shots, and have caused many of his female fan following to get into the lyrics at his concerts. “It’s hard. It’s really tough,” he tells MNN with a laugh. “Somebody has to do it, so I just take one for...

Teea Goans - That's Just Teea!

A couple of months ago, I jokingly referred to Teea Goans as the “Forrest Gump of Country Music.” With her gorgeous blonde locks and stunning Hollywood looks, she bears no resemblance to Tom Hanks’ 1994 Oscar-winning character, but one can definitely make an argument that when it comes to being in the right place at the right time in Country Music history, Goans has been able to make her presence known in some legendary company. Whether performing on the Grand Ole Opry, interviewing...

Liana Conway Enjoys Having 'Beautiful Days'

Singer/songwriter Liana Conway would probably be the first person to tell you that she has had a series of “Beautiful Days” recently – not so coincidentally, the name of the first single off her forthcoming album, Sunrise. Relentlessly upbeat, Conway wouldn’t want it any other way. She tries to see the bright side of each day and firmly believes in living in the present moment. Her attitude translates to her music, which can be best described as positive but truthful, hopeful but realistic. Sunrise is an unabashed album, a youthful ...
