Happy Anniversary, BBG!

Today is the 12th anniversary of this site, which is pretty unreal. When I started BBG! back in December of 2006 I had no idea I'd keep this going daily for well more than a decade and beyond. Heck, I'll be celebrating my wedding anniversary Friday -- that is up to 16 years. Pretty wild for me to think I've been with BBG! almost as long as Eric!

Hopefully this site brings you some joy and amusement from time to time. Or at least a place to bicker about the quality of Too Fast For Love for Generation Swine. I mean, where else are you going to get that on the Internet without being subjected to a million take-over ads or worse?

Bring Back Glam! has always been about narrative and personal reflections. I love when you share your memories in the comments, especially about shows I wish I'd been able to attend.

Here's to another 12 years!


Def Leppard Release 'The Story So Far'

It's time for another compilation album! Def Leppard has just released The Story So Far... The Best of Def Leppard. The album features 35 tracks. It is available for purchase now via CD or streaming.

Sonic Temple Releases 'Low Ticket' Warning

If you're planning on attending the Sonic Temple Festival in May, you might want to go ahead and buy tickets now. The official event Facebook page says the few GA tickets are remaining and I believe this. Rock on the Range GA always sold out fast and this fest replaces that one. It happens in May in Columbus, Ohio. So you've been warned!


Buckcherry Release 'Head Like A Hole' Video

Buckcherry has released a video for "Head Like A Hole." The song was originally recorded by Nine Inch Nails. Now Buckcherry will include the track on their upcoming album Warpaint, due in March.


Tiffany Taps Aerosmith For Holiday Campaign

"Dream On" is one of Aerosmith's most iconic tracks. Now Tiffany is using a cut of the song for their new holiday campaign "Believe In Dreams." This ad is pretty smart - a mix of high and low end pieces. I don't remember ever seeing the Tiffany boxes with a bow other than white!

This ad was created by Laird + Partners. Apparently the New York City flagship store has (or will have) a holiday window with the same "down the rabbit hole" vignettes. I'll assume the ad agency had their hand in that too.

Oh and if the star looks familiar, that's because it is Zoë Kravitz - yes, her dad is Lenny!


Def Leppard Release 'Personal Jesus' Video

Def Leppard recorded a cover of the Depeche Mode classic "Personal Jesus" for Spotify not so long ago. The song is included on the new compilation called The Story So Far - The Best Of. What do you think? The band is actually in the video and it isn't a lyric cop out. I'd estimate this one took about... two hours to shoot and considerably long to edit of course. Thoughts?


Sonic Temple Festival Announced

The Sonic Temple Festival will replace Rock on the Range. The inaugural Sonic Temple lineup is very strong (see below). The festival is set for the weekend of May 17 in Columbus, Ohio. Tickets are on sale November 30 at noon (ET). I expect this festival to sell out quickly. Rock on the Range was always an easy sell-out and the headliners are better for this one than most years of ROTR.
