When Paul McCartney performed at the 2012 Grammy Awards last month, “Who is Paul McCartney” became a trending topic on Twitter, causing older Beatles fans to blink in amazement.
But before you start spouting off about “kids these days” and the sadness of their musical apathy, it turns out McCartney’s one-time bandmate Ringo Starr was not offended by the question — even though it’s likely he’d have garnered the same digital reaction.
About a month after their historic, newly launching Orion Music + More festival weekend, which takes places this June in Atlantic City, N.J., the mighty Metallica will return to Mexico for a pair of shows at the Sports Palace in Mexico City. The shows are scheduled for Aug. 1 and 2. Why is that a big deal, other than being a few more tour dates? Well, the Four Horsemen promised to unveil a “mind-blowing” new stage that “needs to be seen to be believed.” Oh, how Metallica never cease to amaze us.
May 8 is a big day for Dee Snider. Not only will the hard rock renaissance man, who sings, dances, acts, appears on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ and hosts his own radio show, release ‘Dee Does Broadway’ but he will also release his first autobiography, ‘Shut Up and Give Me the Mic.’ Yes, Dee, whatever you say!
Sammy Hagar has shared his true feelings about his former bandmate, Eddie Van Halen. Even though the Red Rocker’s split with Van Halen was a rather difficult one, he contends that he doesn’t hate the guitarist, nor does he wish him ill. It’s more of a case of hating the sin, not the sinner.
More details have surfaced about Metallica‘s upcoming 3D feature film. It will land in multiplexes in 2013 and the Four Horseman have tapped Nimród Antal to direct. It has also been confirmed that the film will marry a narrative with concert footage.
Nationally syndicated radio show ‘InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History’s Greatest Rock Bands’ will take a look back at Van Halen‘s early days in their latest episode. With the new album ‘A Different Kind of Truth’ out now, the show uses interviews with founding band members to offer a peek into their mindset at this particular formative era.
Sammy Hagar has spoken out, this time at more length, about Ronnie Montrose, who died on Saturday, March 3, at the age of 64. Hagar had issued a statement immediately following the news that his former bandmate had passed away, but expounded on his thoughts and feelings a few days later.
In the trailer for ‘Beware of Mr. Baker,’ Ginger Baker, the former drummer of Cream and Blind Faith is declared to be many things. Some desirable. Others? Not so much. The skins smasher is declared mad. He is described as looking like the devil. It is said that he is what the drums are all about. He is christened a lovable rogue and the world’s greatest drummer. How’s that for polarizing? He is certainly a lot of different things to a lot of people.
When rapper Frank Ocean released his ‘Nostalgia’ mixtape, it featured a song called ‘American Wedding’ that had an uncleared sample of The Eagles classic tune ‘Hotel California’ — something that didn’t make Don Henley, the song’s co-author, or his label very happy.
Mark your calendars for June 18, Aerosmith fans.That’s when the band’s tour kicks off, according to frontman Steven Tyler. Tyler will be all done with his ‘American Idol’ judging duties by then and ready to hit the road hard!
