There’s little we like more, than the beginnings of a good, old-fashioned musician slap-fight. And while it’s not a shock that the newest one involves Journey, it is surprising that it isn’t between past and former members of the band. Instead, it came out of nowhere, with John Waite, late member of Bad English and the Babys, firing the first shot at the rock legends.
– The Dave Matthews Band is asking fans to help create a new video for ‘Mercy,’ the first single from their upcoming ‘Away From the World’ album, which will be released Sept. 11. Fans can go to the band’s website to find out how to submit home-made video or photography for use in the clip.
As they rose to mega-stardom in the ’80s, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s four-hour concerts became a part of his own mythology. However, the concerts weren’t actually four hours long. In reality, they ran about three-and-a-half hours of music, with a 20-25 minute break in the middle.
The most difficult challenge for a musician when writing topical songs is making them resonate beyond their run in the news cycle. The opening riff of Neil Young‘s ‘Ohio’ still brings chills more than 40 years after the Kent State shootings because of its urgency, but when was the last time you listened to Sting‘s first couple of solo records?
Major arena tours provide great opportunities for old friends to reunite in the for of special guest appearances. Tuesday night (July 24) at the IZOD Center in E. Rutherford, N.J., Aerosmith were joined onstage by Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniel of Run-D.M.C., who sat in with the band on ‘Toys in the Attic.’
Back in 1976, when Capitol was looking for new ways to re-package the Beatles catalog to their millions of fans, the label released the two-volume ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Music.’ The LPs consisted of the some of the most raucous cuts from their incredible catalog and put hits like ‘Twist and Shout’ with lesser known songs like ‘I’m Down.’
Even though the core of Bruce Springsteen‘s E Street Band is over 60, they are still able to play more than three hours every night with more energy than bands half – check that – one-third their age. Except, of course, when the ruffians get shut down by the police for being out too late. In a new interview, guitarist Nils Lofgren describes what it’s like at the end of those marathons.
Back in January, Eddie Van Halen donated 75 guitars from his collection to the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation for use in Los Angeles public schools. In a new interview, Felice Mancini, the foundation’s executive director, explains how the transfer took place.
Peter Gabriel‘s 1986 smash hit record ‘So’ will be featured in the next installment of Eagle Rock Entertainment’s popular ‘Classic Albums’ series. The documentary, which aired on the BBC in March, will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on Sept. 18.
Often when a band breaks up, they take a handful of years off, then get back together for a tour. If that works well, then they get back into the studio for a new album. The Scorpions have subverted that formula, first by deciding not to break up, but also by announcing that they are working on a new album.
