Here’s another short yet difficult year-end question for you: Who is your favorite artist of 2012? What artist had an impact on not just you, but the whole music industry? What artist deserves the award so much that it would be a crime not to offer them the title? Consequence of Sound chose Frank Ocean, while Sami Jarroush personally chose Jack White. Everyone has an opinion, so for today’s Rock it Out! Blog episode, we want to know who you think is the artist of the year.
Also, Sami recaps some music headlines you should be aware of including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s recent inductees, Trent Reznor and Dr. Dre starting their own music streaming service, The Rolling Stones’ forthcoming performance alongside Bruce Springsteen, The Black Keys, and Lady Gaga, a new song from Blink-182, more dates for Muse’s North American tour, and why Dave Grohl won’t be touring with Queens of the Stone Age.
