  • PRINCE

    26th April 2016

    It has nearly been a week and we still can’t believe he is gone.

    Prince was a legendary musical icon. He broke through conventions with his music right from his breakthrough album '1999' until his final album 'HITnRUN Phase Two'

    Even though he is gone his legacy will live on and the world will always be playing his unforgettable songs.

    Lets all pay tribute by playing Prince's iconic music as loud as we can! 

  • WE LOVE EXHIBITIONISM

    18th April 2016

    EXHIBITIONISM has been open only one week but we already want to go back!

    The entire exhibition was unforgettable. It was so immersive it actually felt like we were in that Edith Grove flat with Mick, Ronnie, Keith and Charlie as we were surrounded with the sights and smells of empty ale bottles and overflowing ashtrays.

    Also hats off to the Saatchi gallery as they must have known Amplified were coming as they played the Stones music as loud as possible!

    If all of The Rolling Stones memorabilia wasn't enough there was also a massive gift shop at the end which stocks every gift you could think of.

    However our favourite EXHIBITIONISM gift from the shop was the limited edition Rolling Stones Supergas. Superga teamed up with EXHIBITIONISM to make a special collection of shoes especially designed for the show!

    The collection is filled with The Rolling Stones graphics which we all know and love, and here at Amplified we know that they will go perfectly with our Rolling Stones shirts. Our favourite is the Superga 2750 Exhibitionism Grey Lips.

    Head to Superga to check out their unique collection here!

    And don't forget to grab yourself one of our Rolling Stones shirts so you can be EXHIBITIONISM ready!

  • Happy 34th Birthday to the Beast!

    22nd March 2016

    Happy 34th Birthday to the Beast!

    Charting at Number 1, The Number of the Beast was a game-changer for the heavy metal icons, Iron Maiden, when it was released in 1982 as the band's first album to feature Bruce Dickinson as lead singer.

    Run to the Hills and The Number of the Beast have both become anthems that are still rocked to today, and both the album and the title song have been featured on too many ‘Greatest’ lists to count!

    All Hail the Beast!

     

  • Rest in Peace Legends

    14th March 2016

    2016 is becoming a very tough year for rock and roll, as more legends are taken from us.

    In the last couple of days we have had to say goodbye to the Beatles producer Sir George Martin and prog rock legend Keith Emerson.

    Sir George Martin was considered the fifth Beatle as he helped them achieve global success after hearing one of their demo tapes in 1962, when other labels had previously turned them down.

    Tributes were pouring in by the thousands last week, with Paul McCartney writing "From the day that he gave The Beatles our first recording contract, to the last time I saw him, he was the most generous, intelligent and musical person I’ve ever had the pleasure to know” 

    We have also lost the progressive rock legend that is Keith Emerson. He was a synthesizer pioneer in ELP, who helped to design and build massive modular synth arrays which were capable of creating sounds no human ear had ever heard before.

    His ELP bandmate Greg Lake has said "What I will always remember about Keith Emerson was his remarkable talent as a musician and composer and his gift and passion to entertain. Music was his life and despite some of the difficulties he encountered I am sure that the music he created will live on forever."

    Rest in Peace George and Keith, you will never be forgotten.

  • Master of Puppets Turns 30

    9th March 2016

    It's been 30 years since Metallica released what most metal fans would agree is their best album and maybe even the best metal album of all time!

     

    There’s not a huge amount you can say about this album that hasn’t been said already. The best way to pay tribute to its power and genius can only be to put on your favourite Metallica top, play the album and turn it up as loud as possible!
