R.E.M. Quickly Returns to the Studio for Its Next Album

Miley Cyrus Puts Her Spin on Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Landslide’ [VIDEO]

It looks like Miley Cyrus was serious when she decided to name her latest run of concerts the Gypsy Heart Tour — during a recent Australian show, she pulled out a classic by rock’s reigning gypsy, Stevie Nicks.

During a set list that also included covers of Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ and Poison’s ‘Every Rose Has Its Thorn’ (she recorded the latter for her most recent release, 2010′s ‘Can’t Be Tamed’), Cyrus slowed things down for ‘Landslide,’ an oft-covered hit from Fleetwood Mac’s 1975 self-titled album.

Puddle of Mudd Covers Led Zeppelin, Elton John, and More on New Album [VIDEO]

When they entered the studio to work on songs for a follow-up to 2009′s ‘Volume 4: Songs in the Key of Love & Hate,’ Puddle of Mudd had a hard time finding the inspiration for new material — so they decided just to have fun playing some of their favorite tunes by other artists.

“We were really burned out, and when we started trying to write again it just wasn’t time yet,” said guitarist Paul Phillip in a recent Billboard interview. “We had been doing (AC/DC’s) ‘TNT’ and (the Steve Miller Band’s) ‘The Joker’ and had so much fun with those that one thing led to another, and we decided to make a covers record. It was just something fun to do, and we had a blast.”

Nirvana Bandmates Reunite Behind Closed Doors

Take three former members of Nirvana, put them together on a stage with their instruments and a stack of amps, and what do you get? The rock ‘n’ roll reunion of the decade — albeit one that played only briefly, and for an audience of one.

It all happened when lead Foo Fighter and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl invited his old compadre, bassist Krist Novoselic, to come out for a Foos show. During pre-concert rehearsals, as the two were warming up with Foo Fighters/ex-Nirvana guitarist Pat Smear, Grohl realized something special was about to happen.

Did Red Wine Kill Jimi Hendrix?? [VIDEO]

When you think of dangerous rock ‘n’ roll substances, red wine probably isn’t even on the list. But according to a friend of Jimi Hendrix, it may have been the cause of the guitar legend’s death.

In an interview with the UK’s Daily Mail, Meic Stevens recounted the last night of Hendrix’s life, saying he “was drinking lager or some kind of beer and he just poured the wine in to the pint glass. I don’t think he had ever drunk red wine before — he didn’t know how to drink it. He seemed okay. He seemed to be alright. But the next day I woke up late and somebody phoned and said Jimi’s dead. Apparently he choked on his own vomit.”
