The term "Southern Rock" is a sub-genre of rock music and was developed in the Southern states of the US in the late 1960's and 70's. It's a mixture of Rock, Country & Blues, and features mostly electric guitars and vocals. Possibly the most famous band considered among this genre is the 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee ZZ Top. While on tour with Jeff Beck, guitarist/vocalist Billy Gibbons took time from his schedule to talk about the band's longevity and about the band's current tour.


Fitz and the Tantrums consisting of Michael Fitzpatrick, Noelle Scaggs, Joeseph Karnes, James King, Jeremy Ruzumna, and John Wicks is a well-diversified indie pop band.

Now they are heading back on tour this fall while promoting their latest album More Than Just a Dream, which was released in May 2013.
