Fiery blues guitarist Johnny Winter dead at 70

17 July 2014 12:27 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Legendary blues guitarist Johnny Winter, known for his fiery, speedy playing and his long-flowing white hair, died yesterday in Zurich, where he was on tour. He was 70. Winter, the older brother of Edgar Winter, was a contemporary of Eric Clapton and was one of the first blues guitarists so embraced by rock audiences that he was able to sell out arenas during his hey-day in the ‘70s. He was widely influenced by the blues guitarists who came before him, such as Muddy Waters, and he went on to inspire such guitarists as Stevie Ray Vaughan. Born in Beaumont, Texas in 1944, Winter got his start playing in clubs as a teenager. He signed with Columbia Records in 1969 and appeared at The Woodstock Festival that year.  He performed with Janis Joplin, as well as his brother. He was inducted into The Blues Foundation Hall of Fame in 1988. Artists including Tom Morello, Kiss »

Country music icon Willie Nelson had a lot to celebrate on Saturday night in Austin, Texas, as he became one of the first-ever inductees to the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame.

The next 10 acts the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame should induct

10 April 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Now that the Kiss Army has gotten its due and their heavy metal heroes will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame tonight at Brooklyn's Barclays Center (along with Nirvana, Cat Stevens, Daryl Hall & John Oates, Linda Ronstadt, and Peter Gabriel), here are 10 more acts that are definitely worthy of inclusion. Some have been nominated numerous times (like Chic) and never gotten voted in, while others, as impossible as it seems, have never even made it onto the ballot. These 10 are presented in alphabetical order: Bon Jovi: Say what you will and there are just as many people vying to keep Bon Jovi out as are fighting to get them in (if not more), but after Frank Sinatra and Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi is the biggest musical act to come out of New Jersey. Bon Jovi, who was on the ballot in 2012, has dominated the world for »

Archer 5.8, Archer Vice: The Rules Of Extraction Review

18 March 2014 12:56 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

FX Productions

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Malory says it herself in part one of this two-part episode: “No more of that bush-league nonsense.”

For much of the fifth season, it’s felt like Archer has been pussyfooting around in the bush leagues. As if in conscious recognition of that fact, Malory declares the team done with it, and boy, does the show deliver. The Rules of Extraction, along with part one, Smugglers’ Blues, is the best episode of the show since season 4′s Midnight Ron.

Even the episode titles have even improved. Smugglers’ Blues is a nod to the very Archer-appropriate 80s Glenn Frey classic, and it fits with the Vice theme perfectly. Archer, Cyril and Ray smuggle their cocaine into Colombia in the hopes of getting a sample to the Colombians’ biggest distributor. Things don’t exactly go the team’s way, and by the episode’s end »
