November 23rd, 2009
When Athens, Georgia garage rockers the Whigs were preparing to hit the studio for their third album, In the Dark, (out March 2nd), their label sent over a highly recommended producer who just happened to be an old pal from their earliest shows. “They were like, ‘Hey, this guy Ben Allen, he’s worked on that first Gnarls Barkley record and did Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavilion,’ ” Whigs’ singer-guitarist Parker Gispert tells Rolling Stone. ” ...

November 23rd, 2009
Photo: Mazur/WireImageSo we hear America got acquainted with Adam Lambert’s crotch last night. A big deal for network TV? Maybe. A big deal in the world of rock & roll: not so much. In fact, we’ve helpfully compiled a greatest-hits of crotch-rock moments that tracks some early groin infractions (Jim Morrison exposing himself onstage; Madonna fake-masturbating on tour) with more recent crotchtaculars (Prince’s Super Bowl guitar silhouette, John Mayer’s thong) and perhaps the most ...

November 23rd, 2009

Samberg plays fellow acoustic guitar aficionado Jack Johnson in the bit that celebrates the wonders of ultimate Frisbee and laid-back riffs.
