Coachella and Stagecoast Fesivals Drop all Covid Protocals

Trending in the right direction?

Earlier today the Coachella and Stagecoach Festivals Drop all Covid Protocals. Hopefully, Bottle Rock and other festivals can move to this.

Bottle Rock is the lineup that KnuckleBonz is lost looking fwd to with Metallica, Pink, Greta Van Vleet, Grandmaster Flash The Black Crowes all scheduled to perform. That’s by far the most diverse lineup of the early/spring festivals.

Hope to see you out there…

Rock Hard!   It can so easily be taken away…

KnuckleBonz – Black Sabbath “Pilgrimage to Mapledurham Mill”

A must on the KnuckleBonz travel list is a pilgrimage to the Mapledurham Mill and Estate  in Oxfordshire, England. Black Sabbath SuperFans will know this is the site of the original album cover photo shoot by photographer Keith “Keef” Macmillan for the debut album released in February of 1970. The young model, Louisa Livingstone, had no idea her image was about to become the corner stone of heavy metal as she posed in various shots in the black robe and green face makeup for Black Sabbath. The haunting image of the Mapledurham Mill, which dates back to the to the 12th century, still brings chills and memories of the initial thunder clap of the album title track Black Sabbath. Even crazier is this record went to catholic grade school with us in the early 70s and was played as part of recreation time. We were allowed to bring our own music and play on the library record player. Not a single Nun or teacher at the Holy Spirit Elementary ever raised an eyebrow…classic. Very progressive for the church of Rome to be sure.

Take a second and visit the official website of the Mapledurham Estate here. The mill is still operational, the last commercially working watermill on the River Thames, and the property is wonderfully maintained. Maybe put on Ozzy, Iommi, Geezer and Bill Ward’s Sleeping Village from the debut album to set the mood. You will be transported to another place…

Bon Scott Rock Iconz Statue – LIVE at KnuckleBonz

Thought we would share a nice shot of our Bon Scott Ltd. Edition Rock Iconz Statue in a typical display set up for Superfans worldwide. This is LIVE from the KnuckleBonz Studio in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Like all KnuckleBonz Collectibles, Bon Scott is a limited edition hand cast statue. Not more than 3000 will be created for AC/DC and Bon Superfans worldwide.

BON SCOTT, the charismatic frontman of the legendary hard rock band AC/DC®, was born Ronald Belford Scott in Kirriemuir, Scotland on July 9, 1946.  The Scott family moved to Australia when Bon was     6 years old. He showed interest in music in those early days, performing in his Dad’s pipe band. After quitting high school, he formed a local group called The Spektors in 1964 where he played drums and did occasional vocal work. This was the first hint at what was to come. In 1974, Bon joined AC/DC as lead singer and thus began a rise to hard rock superstardom. Bon’s combination of bluesy vocal riffs and gritty song writing was amazing. His power on the live stage was even more lethal. AC/DC would morph from domestic rock heroes in Australia, to global fame. The band’s fan base, ever loyal, grew with each album release right through Bon’s last recording, “Highway to Hell.” This was a breakthrough for AC/DC reaching number 17 on the Billboard charts in the USA and multi-platinum sales. Sadly, we lost Bon Scott shortly after on February 19th, 1980. However, he will never be forgotten and remains one of rock music’s greatest Rock Iconz®. Let There Be Rock !

Each KnuckleBonz Rock Iconz Limited Edition Statue is hand-crafted. Never more than 3000 pieces are cast for super-fans worldwide. All Rock Iconz statues are    officially licensed, limited edition collectibles. This is a fine arts production process where each statue is hand-cast, painted and numbered. Rock Iconz are created in 1/9 scale making them 8 to 9 inches tall. Each statue comes with a certificate of authenticity on the base of the statue.

GHOST to Perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live !

GHOST will visit Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Thursday Jan 20th for what we hope might be the performance of a new “ritual.”

As GHOST fans know, 2021 had Tobias Forge and the Nameless Ghouls hard at work on a new, yet untitled record. This is all ahead of a co-headlining tour with Volbeat set for later this year. We of course hope those dates stay in place.

GHOST was fortunate to be wrapping up the A Pale Ghost Named Death Tour when the Pandemic took full hold of all of us and started closing the 3rd Stone from the Sun.

To celebrate the GHOST appearance on Kimmel, we will be launching our Rock Iconz® GHOST Cardinal Copia Limited Edition (Paint Variant) Statue for pre-sale tomorrow AM at KnuckleBonz.com. This paint variant had cast statue has the Cardinal in his Red Tux that he sported on many dates from the last tour. Only 333 have been cast for GHOST for Ghost Superfans worldwide.

Enjoy Ghost on Kimmel and will see you at launch hour tomorrow.

RIP Mick Rock – The Photographer Who Fell to Earth

Photographer Mick Rock was rock…as much part of the music scene and industry of the 70s and beyond as any musician or performer. 

Mick Rock said that he stumbled into photography and had no real understanding that it could be a career. A lot like many of the performers in the early days of rock and popular music. Mick Rock and his photography are responsible for capturing live and candid moments of many of the greatest performers ever like David Bowie, Queen, Syd Barrett, Joan Jett and Debbie Harry. His QUEEN II cover photo is one of the most iconic in music. Mick Rock died today at 72, but like the music we all dig, he lives on forever in his work….

For us at KnuckleBonz, the visual aspects of music are equally important as the music itself. It the only reason we are company focused on creating for Superfans like you. Great images like the photos of Mick Rock are the rocket fuel that will propel us everyday…RIP MICK ROCK

Check out some of Muck Rock’s subjects here in the Rock Iconz and 3D Vinyl Collectible Series at www.KnuckleBonz.com

Rock Hard this Holiday  Season.
