Welcome, rocker nation, to the newest episode of Rock it Out! Blog. Every Friday, host Sami Jarroush rounds together an esteemed panel of critics, musicians, and comedians to discuss the week’s biggest headlines live from our new set at JBTV in downtown Chicago.
This week’s panel features Consequence of Sound Managing Editor Adam Kivel, comedian Kevin Kellam, and freelance writer/graphic designer Ben Cannon. They discuss Johnny Depp’s new supergroup with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry and whether or not he’s a hypocrite based on recent comments he made about actors being in bands. They also discuss the the Oscar nominees for Best Original Song, and Tom DeLonge’s alien encounter.
CoS Film Editor Justin Gerber also predicts who will take home an Oscar this weekend, and The Needle Drop’s Anthony Fantano introduces you to post-punk is in our new segment, Get To Know a Genre.
