More tributes are rolling in for Whitney Houston, the iconic pop singer who passed away Saturday at the much-too-young age of 48. The latest post is from Sebastian Bach, the Skid Row star, who put the following note on his Facebook page in remembrance of Houston:
Tonight (Feb. 11) had been surprisingly quiet in the rock world for a night right before the Grammy Awards, but that changed immediately with the shocking news of iconic pop star Whitney Houston’s untimely demise.

Paul McCartney hasn’t won over many people with the title of his latest album, ‘Kisses on the Bottom’ — especially not Brad Paisley.

‘American Idol’ alum Adam Lambert has blasted a reports that he has signed on to tour with Queen this summer. On Friday (Feb. 3), British newspaper The Daily Star claimed that the the legendary rockers would hit the autobahn for a headlining spot on this summer’s touring Sonisphere festival in Europe, with Lambert filling in for the late, great Freddie Mercury. But on Saturday, Lambert took to Twitter to say that the news wasn’t true and was the result of a simple misunderstanding.
Motley Crue kicked off their much-hyped residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas last night, two months after announcing it during an appearance on CNN’s ‘Piers Morgan Tonight.’ Sin City was so excited that yesterday was declared “Motley Crue Day” there, while fans likely from around the globe flooded into town for the kickoff of the stand, which will cover a dozen dates through Feb. 19.
The recently reunited Black Sabbath have announced their intentions to continue on with their planned comeback tour and album without Bill Ward, just one day after the drummer threatened to not take part unless offered a “signable” contract that would properly financially reflect his contributions to the band’s history.
Steven Tyler took a lot of heat (including from us) for his rendition of the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ before the Baltimore Ravens / New England Patriots AFC title game last month (Jan. 22) in Foxborough, Mass., but the Aerosmith singer insists he did a fine job. He says any eccentricities in his performance were on purpose and he knows he nailed the high note.
Queen will never replaceFreddie Mercury, but the band reportedly are set to reform once again this summer with another vocalist stepping in to handle the late singer’s frontman duties. Flamboyant ‘American Idol’ star Adam Lambert says he will serve as Queen’s singer during a headlining run on this summer’s touring Sonisphere festival in Europe.
Whatever happened to Gerald Bostock? That’s the question Jethro Tull‘s Ian Anderson looks to answer on April 2 with the release of ‘Thick as a Brick 2,’ the follow-up to Tull’s landmark 1972 album. Bostock was the fictional child author of the lyrics and now, 40 years later, a grown up Bostock returns as the lyricist on the new album.
