Glenn Frey, legendary guitarist of The Eagles has died. His death was confirmed only moments ago, reportedly a combination of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia.

Remembering Ronnie Van Zant

Ronnie Van Zant, Legend and Lynyrd Skynard singer left us on October 20, 1977, when a Convair CV-300 carrying the band between shows from Greenville, South Carolina, to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, crashed outside Gillsburg, Mississippi. Since, a memorial park funded by fans and family of the band was built in honor of Van Zant. The Ronnie Van Zant Memorial Park is located on Sandridge Road in Lake Asbury, Florida, nearby his hometown of Jacksonville. 

Happy Birthday Ronnie, and thanks for all the music.

Lemmy's Last Commercial

Tribute video for Lemmy Kilmister by Valio started off shooting a remake of an iconic Finnish milk ad, but  was changed to make it a heartfelt tribute. The  take that came late in the shoot was selected – one of Lemmy’s brilliant improv moments that was never in the script. 

Rest in Peace Lemmy.

Use Of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" in Movie "PAN" May Be The Most Awkward Moment In Movie History

Oh, the Internet. Land of edits, recuts and IP theft galore. But this scene isn't just WEIRD, it's REAL.

The new Peter Pan epic film "Pan" made a whole list of unusual choices, but to use Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is by far the oddest.

Surely some executives for the film know Kurt Cobain would be rolling in his grave over this, but thought happy thoughts could make it all better.

While the scene itself wasn't the worst thing in movie history, it's just weird - and out of nowhere.

If this trend keeps up - who knows, maybe the next Winnie The Pooh movie might have some Judas Priest on the soundtrack.

And when it does, critics will "Pan" that movie, too.
