Aerosmith told us that falling in love is hard on the knees — but according to the rumors swirling around singer Steven Tyler‘s recent engagement, it can apparently also be hard on one’s family.
TMZ reports that Tyler’s loved ones are “furious” that he asked his longtime girlfriend Erin Brady to marry him, with anonymous sources telling the site that “she’s just not nice” and “she’s just been mean to the family.”
As 2011 draws to a close, Billboard has released its list of the year’s top-grossing tours — and while veteran acts didn’t dominate the box office as heavily as they have in recent years, plenty of classic rockers spent the year playing to sold out arenas.
After spending decades as one of the most recognizable voices in rock — and selling millions of albums along the way — Paul Rodgers is probably a pretty difficult guy to shop for. But you don’t need to worry about getting the former Free, Bad Company, and Queen frontman anything for his birthday this year, because he went out and gave himself a present.
And the best part? Rodgers’ gift is a new song that doubles as a fundraising effort for some of his favorite charities. It’s better to give than receive, right?
Alice Cooper, a.k.a. Vincent Furnier, is one of the original shock rockers, but as fans know, he’s also a dedicated family man, successful business owner, and golf nut. He’s led a fascinating life, in other words — and that journey will get its documentary due in the upcoming film ‘Vincent Goes To Hell: An Alice Cooper Doc Opera.’
A little over two years after the Beatles‘ classic albums finally arrived in the iTunes store, another of the band’s classic works is arriving in Apple’s digital emporium. But this time, fans can look forward to an a more interactive offering from the Fab Four.
Everyone knows about the constantly fluctuating exchange rates between the American dollar and foreign currency, but most people don’t give any thought to how it might impact rockers’ touring plans.
Cliff Burnstein, manager of Metallica, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and other big-name bands, is an exception — and his close eye on the financial meltdown in Europe will directly affect the acts that overseas audiences can expect to see over the next few years.
Paul McCartney played his only London gig of 2011 last night (Dec. 5) — and he made it count, delivering a hits-packed, three-hour set to his O2 Arena fans, including several songs he’d never played in the UK before.
But that wasn’t all McCartney had in store for fans: as the evening drew to a close, he told the crowd he had a “surprise” for them before bringing out Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood, who joined McCartney for an energetic performance of ‘Get Back.’
After 35 years and more than 150 million records sold as the lead singer of U2, Bono has one of the most recognizable voices in rock music — but that doesn’t mean he actually enjoys the sound of it himself.
It seems like a glamorous life, but the touring musician’s existence is littered with pitfalls most of us never even have to think about — including the destruction or theft of gig money, gear, and instruments, many of which are vintage, customized, or have deep sentimental value to their owners.
We love Ozzy Osbourne. You love Ozzy. Heck, everyone loves Ozzy. But do you love him enough to try and sneak backstage at one of his shows — stark raving naked, no less — and hand him a vial of your own blood?
Yeah, we didn’t think so. But that doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened. In fact, rock promoter Barry Fey writes about the bizarre encounter in his new book, ‘Backstage Past,’ which runs down his decades in the concert business and shares wild stories about the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, U2 — and, of course, the Prince of Darkness.
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.
