Historic Events that Rocked Music—The Week of December 15
The HUB's News Bits hone in on the significant events that help shape the sound and direction of music. From tour and recording news to our weekly and slightly irreverent feature, This Week in Music History, you'll read about the artists that have revolutionized the sounds of rock, pop, blues, metal, R&B, and rap. We mostly skip the scandals to focus on the ways and means that music is made. We look at artists and gear from a music-geek perspective that both entertains and informs. Stay tuned for the best in music news with The HUB's News Bits.
