Keyboardist Dick Sims backed up two of the greatest classic rockers of all times, and a dozen others that were pretty dang good in his 60 years. The keyboardist died on Thursday, after a battle with cancer, prompting Eric Clapton to dedicate his Saturday show to his one time bandmate.
Wednesday night’s New York City premiere of ‘New Year’s Eve,’ a megafilm starring just about every living Hollywood star and starlet available — and film co-star Jon Bon Jovi — went off without a hitch. But then the reviews started showing up in Thursday’s paper and online. Critics are likely to agree that growing another mullet would have been a better career move for the singer.
Queen‘s Roger Taylor has chosen the six young musicians pictured here in Brady Bunch fashion to serve as the band and singers for the 2012 Queen Extravaganza tour.

Metallica‘s Lars Ulrich may best understand where the notoriously cantankerous Lou Reed comes from. In an interview with his bandmates and Reed, Ulrich tells the Telegraph that the Velvet Underground legend enters each circumstance with suspicion.
Guns N’ Roses fans in Nashville, Tenn. got a surprise on Sunday night as the band reached deep into their catalog to perform ‘Civil War’ for the first time since Slash was still on Axl Rose‘s Christmas card list. Rose’s recent inclusion of songs from the ‘Use Your Illusion’ albums that he’d long ignored has his supporters in a tizzy.
Bob Seger seemed like the happiest man on the planet while introducing Bruce Springsteen during his set at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Thursday night. The New Jersey native made the drive over to sing ‘Old Time Rock N’ Roll’ with his long time friend.
Sometimes great ingredients can make a pretty mediocre dish. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers recorded seven gritty, powerful, electric-blues cuts for ‘Kiss My Amps Live’ but when played one after the other the album loses focus.
Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page is re-releasing a limited number of copies of the ‘Death Wish II’ soundtrack tomorrow (Dec. 1).
