Former Guns N' Roses and Sixx:AM guitarist DJ Ashba took to social media to reveal that he plans to legally change his name to just Ashba, and explained his reasoning for the change.

He shared via Instagram, "A personal note: I was born with the name Daren Jay Ashba. My dad is the only one who ever called me Daren and he left a few years after I was born. My mom got remarried to an amazing man who I consider to be my dad. My mom and dad are still happily married to this day. When they got married he already had 4 kids of his own and one of his sons name was also Daren. So by default my name immediately became my initials, Dj. (continue)

The 45th anniversary of Bad Company's "Desolate Angels" album is being celebrated by the syndicated radio show In The Studio With Redbeard: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands.

Redbeard shared this synopsis for the episode: It's the forty-fifth anniversary of Bad Company's Desolation Angels, released in early March 1979. Five years after their 1974 debut album made them a "super group", there was real concern that Bad Company had augered in with a collective faceplant, due to a dearth of strong material plus sheer exhaustion from a non-stop cycle of recording and touring. After three consecutive million-sellers in as many years, the British foursome consisting of ex-Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs, King Crimson bass player Boz Burrell, and Paul Rodgers and Simon Kirke, half of blues-rockers Free, all were as Rodgers told me, "burnt" by the time they recorded 1977's spotty Burnin' Sky album, no pun intended.

Sugarcane Jane (Neil Young's longtime bandmate Anthony Crawford and his wife Savana Lee) are releasing their eleventh studio album, "On A Mission," and to celebrate Anthony tells us about the song "Burn". Here is the story:

Many of my songs were written from the love of being alone in my studio. To get in the mood, I usually started with drums.
