Taste buds be warned, this is a devilishly good 114-proof whisky

Dip your finger into the amber liquid (don’t be shy, you’re adventurous, right?), drop it onto your palm and rub.

Motorhead's Lemmy Kilmister finally gets his documentary

Sure we have plenty of fame-reluctant indie bands floating around, talentless attention-starved pop stars clogging the airwaves, and more than enough material-obsessed rappers to fill the Mall of America, but we don’t have any Rock Stars.
