The Rolling Stones and controversy go together like fish and chips. In 1968, one of their best-known controversies kept their classic album 'Beggars Banquet' album off shelves for nearly six months in a protracted dispute over the legendary "toilet cover."
Nelson Mandela's death on Dec. 5 inspired a number of heartfelt reactions from members of the rock community. While many lamented the loss of an inspiring figure and world leader, others felt Mandela's passing on a more personal level -- including U2 frontman Bono, who was fortunate enough to count the legendary activist among his friends.
Jim Morrison would have turned 70 on Dec. 8, and while it's impossible to imagine what he might have done over the past few decades if he hadn't passed away in 1971, he'd probably have Internet access if he were still alive -- which he could use to stream a trio of free Doors films from Qello.
The Rolling Stones were trying to prove their critics wrong by booking a free festival to wrap up their 1969 tour at Altamont Speedway on Dec. 6, 1969. But what they intended as a way for their fans to come together for a day of music and celebration turned into a tragic debacle that ended with a homicide -- effectively bring the peace-and-love ethos of the '60s to a jarring end.
Here's something Dave Grohl would be proud to see! As a huge activist for getting children involved in music, Grohl has inspired the youth time and time again with Nirvana and the Foo Fighters. These two proudly count the musician among their influences as they take on the Foo Fighters' hit 'Everlong.'
Nelson Mandela has died at the age of 95. Mandela, who was South Africa’s first black president, was a symbol against racial oppression over the past few decades, and has been championed by various rock stars since the '80s.
The Rolling Stones will keep rolling in 2014. The band just announced a dozen shows in Australia, New Zealand and Japan, with a special kick-off date set for February 21 in Abu Dhabi. Mick Taylor, the group's guitarist during their fertile period of 1969-74, will again appear as a special guest at most of the shows.
