We have bad news for those who were hoping to attend screenings of ‘The Beatles: The Lost Concert’ on May 17 and 22. Due to specified issues, the movie’s run has been postponed until they can be resolved by the documentary’s producers, with a hopeful target date of the late summer 2012.
For all of its gleaming new resorts, Las Vegas has long had a reputation as a haunted city. From the mobsters who helped build the city and disappeared under mysterious circumstances to those who came to Sin City in search of fortune but died broke and hungry, the ghosts of Las Vegas could be found if you know where to look. After appearing on the Travel Channel’s ‘Ghost Adventures,’ which aired on April 27, Vince Neil of Motley Crue believes they’re in Room 908 of the Riviera Hotel.
To promote their upcoming album, ‘Rize of the Fenix,’ Tenacious D have enlisted the help of their friends in both the comedy and rock worlds. Bob Odenkirk, known for his work on ‘Mr. Show’ and ‘Breaking Bad,’ teamed up with bassist Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot, Whitesnake, Ozzy Osbourne) to create an mock-informational film on behalf of the Tinnitus Institute.
Good news for vinyl enthusiasts and Van Halen fans. Beginning May 4, the group is giving away a limited-edition seven-inch single of ‘She’s the Woman’ with the purchase of their new album, ‘A Different Kind of Truth.’
In the last decade of his life, Levon Helm opened up his home in Woodstock, N.Y. for his Midnight Ramble concerts. Therefore, it’s fitting that it will be the site of a memorial for him. Rolling Stone is reporting that the service will take place on April 26 from 10AM to 3PM. Helm passed away on April 19 at the age of 71 after a lengthy bout with throat cancer. Friends and fans are invited to attend.
Well into their third season, the A.V. Club’s ‘Undercover’ series continues to entertain on a regular basis. The format is simple: bands stopping by the site’s Chicago headquarters are given the opportunity to perform a cover from a list of 25 songs. But once the song is performed, it cannot be used again. Already this season we’ve seen the Head and the Heart cover Fleetwood Mac‘s ‘Go Your Own Way‘ and the Punch Brothers put some bluegrass into the Cars‘ ‘Just What I Needed.’
Some musicians who have been in the business for over 30 years aren’t very comfortable talking about their past and prefer to only look forward. Chris Frantz, drummer for Talking Heads, is not one of them. In a recent interview to promote a new DVD, ‘Chronology,’ Frantz talked about his band’s early days at CBGB.
Even though they’re doing fine as a touring act with new singer Arnel Pineda, Journey remain open to the idea of working again with original lead singer Steve Perry. In a new interview with the Huffington Post, guitarist Neal Schon and keyboardist Jonathan Cain spoke about the band’s decision to continue without him, and what would happen if Perry ever decided he wanted his old job back.
It’s been nine years since ZZ Top’s last album, ‘Mescalero.’ However, the Texas blues-rock group recently recorded an album with Rick Rubin, although, according to guitarist Billy Gibbons, nobody has any idea when it is coming out.
Stick around long enough and someone will put you in a museum. That old saying is true even when you’ve made it your life’s mission to never slow down. On Saturday (April 28), the Experience Music Project Museum in Seattle will host the American premiere of ‘AC/DC: Australia’s Family Jewels,’ an exhibit about the legendary band. The exhibit will run through September 29.
Some people leave their jobs on good terms, keeping their friendships (and, of course, future references) intact, while others come up with clever ways to burn every possible bridge between themselves and their soon-to-be former employers. But Karen Cheng chose to combine the two, making a cute video of her rewrite of Don McLean‘s ‘American Pie’ to give her notice at Microsoft.
