Denis Leary has a number of guest rock stars appearing in his new FX show Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll which airs on FX on July 16. Lined up are Joan Jett, Foo Figethers’ Dave Grohl and Greg Dulli of The Afghan Whigs. But if his series gets a...Show More Summary
Alt-rock icons unfurl "The Lottery" and a medley of "I Am Fire" and Fleetwood Mac's "Tusk".
Barrel-chested throb-rock relics the Afghan Whigs remain one of the great sure bets on the indie rock touring circuit, and their muscular and soulfully sleazy attack sounds great in just about any context, including a random Monday night on late-night TV. Last night, the Whigs were the musical guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where they […]
The wonderful new video for The Afghan Whigs' "The Lottery" was self-shot by the band's stage monitor engineer Ryan O'Hara, a man who clearly loves his job. "Every night during the gig he performs a parallel show behind the board and it's phenomenal to watch," says The Afghan Whigs' Greg Dulli. Show More Summary

“Here me now, and don’t forget, I’m not the man my actions would suggest.” – The Afghan Whigs In 1994 when my friends were listening to Pearl Jam and Nirvana, I was listening to The Afghan Whigs and Pulp. Pearl Jam played for the masses and Eddie Vedder swung from the rafters. Nirvana [...]
The reunited alt-rock icons release another clip for Do to the Beast.
Recent Band To Watch Greylag’s video for “Yours To Shake” is the second clip we’ve seen this morning (after the new Afghan Whigs video) to set a sleek, classic-rock-inflected indie song in a haunting woodland environment. The colorful clip was directed by Ben Fee, and it follows a number of intriguing figures through some dramatic [...]
Although the Afghan Whigs would do a killer cover version of Bon Iver’s “The Woods” and/or Kanye West’s “Lost In The World,” their song “Lost In The Woods” is an original from this year’s comeback album Do To The Beast. The song now has a video that’s appropriately set in the woods, involving an array [...]
Even though we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Afghan Whigs’ awesome Gentlemen last year, it only makes sense that such a booze-addled record would get a deluxe reissue upon reaching legal drinking age. One of the bonus tracks is a demo version of the all-messed-up-with-nowhere-to-go title track. It’s rawer than the final studio version [...]

Saturday afternoon, I drove down to the city to see the reunited Afghan Whigs play the Beacon Theater on the Upper West Side. I saw them years and years ago in DC, around 1996 or so on the tour for Black Love, and that was a great show. They’ve always been one of my favorite…
