  One night in April 2012, Axl Rose, the lead vocalist of hard rock band Guns N' Roses, was accosted by paparazzi as he was stepping out of a posh hotel in Los Angeles. «Any chance you guys are doing a reunion tour with a full lineup in the future?» he was asked. «Not in this lifetime,» the singer said, dismissively, as he got inside a car. But things do change within a lifetime, it turns out. Four years later, Guns N' Roses announced that it was embarking on a new world tour. And while it doesn't feature the iconic group's original lineup, former members guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan---whom Axl last performed with in 1993---rejoined the gang to fill in...Keep on reading: PH concert a chance to see Guns N’ Roses ‘in this lifetime’

Never one to fuss about her appearance and glamour, Jodie relishes this role because she's allowed to look older. The action/crime/sci-fi drama also stars Dave Bautista, Sofia Boutella, Sterling K.

As it seeks to understand its characters' generational idiosyncrasies, the production banks on a tandem that plays well to the strengths of its affable partners---from the fresh-faced, boy-next-door appeal of Jameson Blake, to the frail and fragile heart that hides behin...Keep on reading: Jameson-Janella tandem buzzes with youthful brio
