Saying “the price appears to be either a misprint or a satire,” Costello told fans that he’s “unable to recommend” the ‘Songbook’ box, and took the “unusual step” of recommending an alternative use for his fans’ money.
You may have thought you hallucinated that story about Kiss starring in a new Archie comic, but it’s really happening — and if you want to commemorate the experience by getting your own signed copy, the band is happy to oblige.
All you have to do is get yourself to Los Angeles on November 30, where band members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley will be hosting a signing at Golden Apple Comics. The store will start handing out wristbands at 10 AM (with the purchase of an issue of the comic, natch), but get there early — the event is limited to the first 100 fans.
Since satellite radio launched, it’s provided an opportunity for a number of well-known recording artists to turn DJ, hosting their own stations with a mix of personal stories and their favorite songs — including Bob Dylan, Pearl Jam, Eminem, and Willie Nelson.
When guitarist and founding member K.K. Downing left Judas Priest earlier this year, it came as a surprise, but it wasn’t exactly a shock. He’s 60 years old, after all, and had definitely done his time in the trenches after spending more than 40 years in the studio and on the road. In fact, a lot of people assumed he was retiring to pursue a life of well-deserved leisure, running the golf courses on his property.
As it turns out, Downing’s reasons for leaving the band were a little more complicated — and all too familiar to anyone who’s watched their favorite bands splinter over personality conflicts. Without getting too deeply into the specifics, Downing revealed in a recent interview that it “pretty much came down to an unsettlement on my part with working relationships.”
The all-star combo treated the studio audience to another fiery run-through of ‘Bad Reputation,’ with Jett in fine voice and the Foos thrashing through the song like their lives depended on it. Take a look at this clip from the show and try to keep from wondering what it might sound like if Jett put the Blackhearts on hold to record an entire album with Dave Grohl and company:
The rivalry between pro football’s Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens featured a twist from the classic rock world Sunday night, with the Steelers accused of referring to opposing quarterback Joe Flacco as a “little girl” via a Lynyrd Skynyrd song played over their stadium’s sound system.
Love 'em or hate 'em, reboots are all the rage in Hollywood — both on the big screen, where you can't go a week without a new version of 'Footloose' or 'The Thing,' and on the TV, where '90210' is back and 'Charlie's Angels' briefly took flight again this fall.
Recognizing a trend when they see it, the folks at NBC
Vince Neil of Motley Crue is no stranger to scuffles with the law — and now he’s back in court, where he’s set to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge stemming from an alleged disorderly conduct incident involving his ex-girlfriend, entertainment reporter Alicia Jacobs, and a pair of her companions at a Las Vegas comedy club.
“Mr. Neil is sorry he raised his voice,” said Neil’s defense attorney, David Chesnoff.
If you’re old enough to remember the ‘Police Academy’ movies, you might recognize Michael Winslow, a.k.a. ‘The Man of 10,000 Sound Effects,’ as Sgt. ‘Motor Mouth’ Jones, the officer who, well, made a lot of sound effects with his mouth. And if you love Led Zeppelin, you’re going to want to watch his amazing cover of ‘Whole Lotta Love.’
Petty and the band are planning to release a live vinyl LP to mark the occasion, offering fans a chance to hear new versions of classic tracks, cuts from ‘Mojo,’ and a concert performance of the rare B-side ‘Sweet William.’
Joe Walsh has a history of coming up with tongue-in-cheek titles for his solo albums, including ‘You Can’t Argue with a Sick Mind,’ ‘Got Any Gum?,’ and, of course, ‘You Bought It — You Name It.’ But for his upcoming release, due in the winter of 2012, he decided on a more reflective name: ‘Analog Man.’
Walsh explained the title during a recent interview with Ultimate Classic Rock, saying, “I know in the past, I’ve had screwy album titles, but I decided to call it ‘Analog Man.’ Because, you know, my generation of musicians, we grew up analog, and now it’s a digital world.
