ZZ Top Rock VH1 Storytellers: June 27

Those three bearded dudes from Texas, the guys who like to splash around in the Rio Grande mud, are VH1’s next Storytellers guests. ZZ Top recently taped their show in Chicago, and it was rocking. It airs on Saturday, June 27 at 10 pm ET. It airs on VH1 Classic and Palladia on Saturday, July 4 at 9:00 pm ET.

Stay tuned: We’ll be posting a sneak performance of a Storytellers song this weekend.

The group was in rare form for this eventful gig.

The Texas trio answer questions from the audience, renew one couple’s wedding vows, and tell the stories behind such hits as “LaGrange” (about the real “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas”) and “Sharp Dressed Man” (during the song’s video shoot a homeless personstarted critiquing everything on the set and band and crew went on to follow his advice). Also in the hour, guitarist Billy F Gibbons talks about the band’s travails as opening act for Janis Joplin and bassist Dusty Hill shows off his Walter Brennan imitation. The episode will feature the band revealing the inspiration and stories behind such classic hits as “Just Got Paid,” “Jesus Just Left Chicago,” “Gimme All Your Lovin’” and “Tush.”



The Great Debate: Watch a Sneak Peek

We’ve been rolling out sneaks of our Great Debate show that’s premiering on July 6 at 10 pm ET. It’s about resolving the big quandaries. Hottest Simpson sister: Jessica or Ashley? Better man pill: Rogaine or Viagra? Mightiest TV car: General Lee or KITT? Each night celebs will gather to get their pundit on. The guest list includes everyone from Tila Tequila and Perez Hilton to Omarosa and Sir Mix-A-Lot. Check the clip above for a taste.


AC/DC Invites Anvil To Rock This Summer

Rock hard enough and you’ll wind up rocking with the best. That’s what’s happened to Anvil, the little heavy metal band that could. It’s been announced that the band is sharing the stage with AC/DC at two key dates this summer, Boston’s Gillette Stadium on July 28, and New York’s Giants Stadium on July 31.

As VH1 viewers should know by now, the veteran kerrang team has been gathering loads of coverage and kudus thanks to the acclaimed new documentary, Anvil! The Story of Anvil.

AC/DC is chugging through the U.S. on its Black Ice tour. Tickets to all the dates can be purchased at AC/DC’s Web site.





Bret Michaels: Fractured Nose, Full Bladder

Turns out that our Rock of Love maestro was kind of befuddled the entire night at the Tonys celebration. That run-in with the descending stage scenery, you know, the one that fractured his nose, wasn’t the only oddball affair. Earlier in the evening he had to hit the head so bad that he walked backwards down the red carpet. That’s rock ‘n’ roll, y’all. Here’s a short confession above.



Dave Matthews Talks About His New Disc

Last week we brought you an interview with the Dave Matthews Band. The boss and his buds explained a bit about their new Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King. It’s their tribute to fallen bandmate LeRoi Moore, who passed away last year.

Here are some more clips from that interview. The one above explains how the album title, which Dave says sounds like “a fairy tale for grown-ups,” came about. New Orleans has more than a little to do with it.

After the jump you can learn how Dave believes there’s no drummer finer than the DMB’s Carter Beauford.

Put those ideas to work, and connect with others who feel the same. Be a Vh1VIP. Have the Best Day Ever.



Rock Band Breaks Out The Beatles in September!

Fans of the Fabs now know that the Beatles catalog is going to be digitally remastered and placed in stores this September, 9/9/09 to be exact. From “I Should Have Known Better” to “Carry That Weight,” all those jewels are going to gleam.

But 9/9/09 is big – make that massive – in the gaming world, too. The Beatles: Rock Band will be released that day. It’s the first time that rock’s most influential songbook has been applied to a game. The opportunity to grab an instrument and knock out everything from “I Feel Fine” to “Get Back” is going blow a lot of minds. Paul, Ringo, Yoko Ono, and Olivia Harrison helped tell the world at the E3 confab last week. As you can see from above, VH1 News was there.

Perhaps the coolest part about the game is its authenticity. The instruments are superb replicas of the signature basses and guitars the band played. The “venues” that participants rock out in are the ones the Beatles actually played, from the Cavern Club to Shea Stadium.

We’ll deliver more Beatles: Rock Band news as it’s announced. CHECK A GAMEPLAY TRAILER
