Last week’s Rockucation question was: This album has no official title but is referred to by fans by a particular name. The band wanted to foil the critics who said they sold records because of the hype and not the talent. The band didn’t put their name on it but 4 symbols instead. It was a gatefold album made in the 1970’s. People would hold the album up to a mirror looking to complete a image. There were also various stories surrounding the record, such as by playing a certain song backwards it revealed a satanic message, etc. Who is the group and what is the album? Kamran Khan from Seekonk, MA got this one for us. It was Led Zeppelin’s fourth album known as ZOSO.

Bruce Springsteen released a new video called Just Like Fire Would off his High Hopes album. Pay attention to the video and you will see Tom Morello from Rage Against The Machine playing. Watch the video here:

If you watch tonight’s Grammy’s show, besides seeing Metallica, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr perform together,David Grohl and Queens Of The Stone Age performing together and others. You will also catch the Motley Crue farewell commercial. Yup, that says it all.

If you care, Roger Daltry and Wilko Johnson are working together on a project. Yeah, I didn’t think you did either.

Les Claypool (Primus), Duo De Twang will be releasing their new album Four Foot Shack on February 4. It will be followed by a tour. You can hear a track and get more details here:

Daughtry released the Long Live Rock And Roll audio from his Baptized album. I like the lyrics but wished the song had a harder edge to it. But I like the ride down memory lane on this one. You can listen to it here:

Ok my friends, I know some of you really like the Blues. I think you need to check out SIMO. They have a refreshing blues sound. You can check out some of their live stuff on YouTube. But go to their website and give them a serious listen:

This week’s Rockucation question is: This band was formed in 1990. It was basically the foundation of two grunge bands. They put out one album only.  It was a tribute to the late Andrew Wood. Who was the band and what band came out of it as well as what other band supplied members to it?
