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.
For the first episode of 2016, the panel includes Consequence of Sound Publisher Alex Young, WXRT-FM on-air host Emma Mac, and WKQX-FM on-air host Kevin Kellam. We begin by breaking down Coachella’s 2016 lineup festival. We then deep dive into the reunions of LCD Soundsystem and Guns N’ Roses, discussing the rationale for both acts getting back together and which one will have a bigger actor. Finally, they offer up New Years Resolutions for a few select actors and musicians to follow through on.
Additionally, Leah Pickett returns to bring you the Top Songs of the Week, and we check in with That Metal Show host Eddie Trunk about the impending GnR reunion and any other possible plans they may have.
