Queen Elizabeth II has been the monarch of Britain for almost as long as Paul McCartney and Elton John have been alive. In fact, the Queen celebrates 60 years on the throne this year. Her fellow Brits are coming together to honor those six decades as the figurehead of the country at a bash to be held in front of her Buckingham Palace digs. Sir Paul and Sir Elton are both set to perform and serve as the event’s headliners.
Soundgarden fans will have to wait a little bit longer for the band’s first album since 1996. The “reunion” album had a spring release date loosely attached to it, and singer Chris Cornell made the press rounds saying so. Now, Cornell has revealed the new album, the band’s first since ‘Down on the Upside,’ has been bumped to fall of this year. We’ve been waiting long enough — what’s a few more months? Patience, young Skywalker, right?
Double your rock ‘n’ roll pleasure. Neil Young has finally and officially confirmed that he has two Crazy Horse albums on tap. The first record with his beloved on-again, off-again backing band is fully finished and it’s titled ‘Americana,’ while the second one is currently being fashioned.
Now, this is what we call beating the system. A South Florida-based billionaire has legally (and perhaps brilliantly, if it pays off) adopted his 42-year-old girlfriend and not because they are into some seriously creepy role playing that they’ve taken a bit too far outside of the bedroom.
Steve Perry hasn’t issued any new music since 1998. However, the self-exiled former Journey frontman is putting the finishing touches on a studio at his Southern California home, which means he’ll soon record and rock fans will get to hear that powerful voice once again.
The Scorpions announced in 2010 that they would release ‘Sting in the Tail’ as their final album and then head off into the sunset with a farewell tour before retiring from active duty as rockers. But much like many rockers who release “goodbye” albums and embark on sayonara tours, the Scorps were not done stinging, so to speak.
The staff at the Roxy on Sunset in Hollywood, Calif., have revealed that the almighty Van Halen have been rehearsing at their establishment two to three times per week for the past two months. The employees have kept the news under wraps but couldn’t contain their excitement or the good news any longer. Talk about having a reason to run to work every day, to get there early and to stay late. It was like the members of VH were “co-workers!”
With the onslaught of rock bands marketing their own brands of libations, Billboard elected to examine several such beverages via a wine tasting panel at New York’s City Winery. They sipped, sampled and sounded off about 12 wines from the likes of AC/DC, Pink Floyd, Motorhead, Warrant, Ratt, Whitesnake and more.
