Eduardo Rivadavia

Eduardo Rivadavia (aka Ed Rivadavia) was born in São Paulo, Brazil, and by his late teens had already toured the world (and elsewhere), learning four languages on three continents. Having also accepted the holy gospel of rock & roll as his lord and savior, Eduardo became infatuated with the New Wave of British Heavy Metal and all things heavy, crude, and obnoxious while living in Milan, Italy, during the mid-1980s. At this time, he also made his journalistic debut as sole writer, editor, publisher, and, some would claim, reader of his high school's heavy metal fanzine, earning the scorn of jocks and nerds alike, but uniting the small hardcore music-loving contingent into a frenzied mob that spent countless hours exchanging tapes, talking shop, and getting beat up at concerts. Upon returning home to Brazil, Eduardo resumed a semi-normal existence, sporadically contributing music articles to local papers and magazines while earning his business degree. Finally, after years of obsessive musical fandom and at peace with his distinct lack of musical talent, Eduardo decided the time had come to infiltrate the music industry by the fire escape. He quit his boring corporate job, relocated to America, earned his master's degree while suffering the iniquities of interning for free (anything for rock & roll!), and eventually began working for various record labels, accumulating mountains of records and (seemingly) useless rock trivia in the process. This eventually led him back to writing, and he has regularly contributed articles to multiple websites since 1999, working with many different rock genres but specializing, as always, in his personal hobby: hard rock and heavy metal. To quote from the insightful 'This Is Spinal Tap': "People should be jealous of me...I'm jealous of me...." Eduardo currently resides in Austin, TX, with his wife, two daughters, and far more records, CDs and MP3s than he'll ever have time to listen to.

35 Years Ago: AC/DC Release ‘If You Want Blood You’ve Got It’

By 1978, AC/DC had packed their relatively short, half-decade career with five albums and hundreds of concerts. For their strenuous efforts they deservedly attained a considerable amount of success around the world. But they still hadn't cracked the platinum-sales mark in the U.S. That career benchmark was just around the corner, with the following year's 'Highway to Hell.' But before taking that next step, the band decided the time was ripe to celebrate its first few years with a live album, the now-classic 'If You Want Blood You've Got It.'

35 Years Ago: Black Sabbath’s ‘Never Say Die!’ Released

Much has been made - and rightly so - about Black Sabbath’s almost-reunion, minus founding drummer Bill Ward, to record 2013’s ‘13’ album, an astounding 35 years after Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler last collaborated on an LP, ‘Never Say Die!,’ which was released on Sept. 28, 1978.

30 Years Ago: Motley Crue’s ‘Shout at the Devil’ Released

When Motley Crue released its sophomore album, ‘Shout at the Devil,’ on Sept. 26, 1983, they already wanted to rule the world. But they’d endured such desperate living conditions while scratching and clawing their way out of the Hollywood gutter, that just earning enough money to buy a sandwich probably still felt pretty damn exciting.

40 Years Ago: Led Zeppelin Robbed of $200,000

It's been 40 years since Led Zeppelin had more than $200,000 in cash stolen from a safety-deposit box at their New York City hotel. Hardly a crippling loss, seeing as it came near the end of a tour that grossed more than $4 million. But it was almost a sign that the legendary group's career had peaked and more troubles were on the way.

40 Years Ago: ZZ Top’s ‘Tres Hombres’ Album Released

Before ZZ Top became global superstars -- synonymous with infectious boogie rock, fast cars, beautiful women, synchronized hand gestures and bodacious beards -- they were just three men from Texas. Tres hombres. Three bluesmen, to be precise, whose third album proved to be their commercial breakthrough.

It’s been 35 years since the inaugural Texxas Jam rocked the Cotton Bowl in Dallas and brought the summer mega-festival back to the Lone Star State, after years of staunch refusal by local government agencies to grant longhaired rockers and their marauding fans permission to invade their hallowed stadiums.
