Royal Thunder Q&A
Royal Thunder took hard rock by storm in 2012 with LP debut CVI, but the Atlantans’ acclaimed follow-up Crooked Doors emits psych, prog, and soulful balladry. Due to the split of singer/bassist Mlny Parsonz and guitarist Josh Weaver, it’s been compared to Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours. Parsonz addressed the issue prior to the band’s gig Sunday at Holy Mountain.

The Eagles Come Home to Roost
Platinum ego encases History of the Eagles, a three-hour rock doc (on Netflix and mailed to concert reviewers) that spawned a two-year tour. Founders and songwriting axis Don Henley and Glenn Frey wield their aural iconography like a tomahawk – screw up, get scalped.
