Welcome rocker nation to a brand new episode of Rock it Out! Blog. Every Friday, host Sami Jarroush rounds together an esteemed panel of critics, musicians, and comedians to discuss the week’s biggest headlines.
This week’s panel includes comedians Kevin Kellam and Ben Bergman, along with Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya, a contributing writer for The A.V. Club and The Hollywood Reporter. To kick things off, they discuss the cancelation of American Idol and examine the show’s legacy. Following news of Stephen Hawking’s appearance at Glastonbury, they also discuss which non-music acts they would like to see at a music festival, and which movie reboots shouldn’t exist.
Also, Kevin Kellam heads to Wrigley Field to ask fans their walk-up music, and we bring you a sneak peek of next week’s interview with Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe.
