Rock Legends: Little Richard
This Tuesday, Rock Legends is featuring Little Richard! Little Richard is most known for his risque song “Tutti Frutti,” which was cleaned up before it’s release in November of 1955. “Tutti Frutti” became an instant hit, reaching No. 2 on Billboard magazine’s Rhythm and Blues Best-Sellers. He was also recognized for his songs “Lucile,” “Long Tall Sally,” “Slippin’ and Slidin’,” and more 1950s rock & roll classics that he performed. To learn more about this charismatic and timeless artist, watch Rock Legends at 8/7c on Tuesday, December 18th!
The Day the Rock Star Died: Keith Moon
This Tuesday, we remember the English drummer, known best for his contribution to the rock band The Who, Keith Moon! Moon was noted for his unique style, alcohol addiction, and his eccentric, often self-destructive behavior. Throughout his career, he developed a reputation for smashing his kit on stage and destroying hotel rooms on tour. On the other hand, Keith Moon was voted the second-greatest drummer in history by Rolling Stone! Moon’s drumming continues to be praised by critics and musicians to this day. Join us in celebrating his life and legacy this Tuesday on The Day The Rock Star Died at 8:30/7:30c.
Docs That Rock: ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and The BFG’s Go To Cuba
As one might expect for one of the biggest bands of all time, ZZ Top has played shows all over the world in far-flung locales that include Moscow and Buenos Aires. Havana, Cuba was one of the few places that the band hadn’t played, that is until 2015 when Billy Gibbons received an invite to play the 30th Annual Havana Jazz Festival as a solo artist. “I had never been to Havana before,” says Gibbons. “I really didn’t know what to expect. I know a handful of people who have been there, and not a single one could describe it in words. They’d just say, ‘You’ve gotta go!’” Follow Gibbons and his band, The BFGs, through the historic streets of Havana to learn about the history of Cuba and experience the culture. Then, they’ll hit the stage to perform two sold-out concerts to one of the most energetic crowds caught on tape. Don’t miss its AXS TV premiere this TUESDAY at 10/9c!
