This fall the Rolling Stones will re-release a significant portion of their hits catalog with a muli-disc greatest album called ‘Grrr!’ The band announced three-disc and four-disc options, allowing fans to snag up to 80 of their most important and best known works, plus two new songs cut specifically for this project.
‘Afterglow,’ the new Black Country Communion album scheduled for release on Oct. 30 might be the rock supergroup’s final effort. Glenn Hughes (formerly of Deep Purple) tells ABC News that guitarist Joe Bonamassa’s solo touring schedule makes it impossible for BCC to tour, and he can’t be in a band that only records.
Before some of the biggest games in college football this season, fans will be treated to the newest song from Kiss. ‘Hell or Hallelujah,’ the first single from the upcoming ‘Monster‘ album, will kick off ACC Network telecasts, meaning fans of University of North Carolina, Florida State, University of Miami and many more schools will hear plenty of Gene Simmons and company.
An unobstructed look at the Rolling Stones‘ 50 year career is what director Brett Morgen is promising with ‘Crossfire Hurricane,’ a biopic set to debut on HBO this fall.

Former Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan took the stage alongside a 13-year-old from Italy on Tuesday night, to play a set list of Metallica, Nirvana and yes, GNR covers. It was part of the boys wish with the Make-a-Wish foundation. Simone Capelli is battling bone cancer.
Ted Nugent, a fully-automatic machine gun, a helicopter and an overpopulation of feral hogs … one can pretty much figure out what that combination leads to. In the trailer for an episode of ‘Pigman: The Series’ an announcer explains why the hogs are dangerous before Nugent and Brian “Pigman” Quaca take to the sky.
Fans of Neil Young won’t have to wait long for more new music from the rock legend. After releasing the ‘Americana‘ album in June, Young announced today that he’d release ‘Psychedelic Pill,’ an oversized collection of original material featuring his beloved backing band Crazy Horse, in October.
Lynyrd Skynyrd released a new album on Tuesday (Aug. 21). ‘Last of a Dyin” Breed is being called a return to the classic Skynyrd sound, and the recently released title track backs up that claim. The album title could refer to guitarist Gary Rossington, who is indeed the last of a dying breed. He’s the only remaining original member of the legendary rock group. Critics have wondered how he can justify carrying on with a lineup of “replacements.” Rossington says he’s not trying to fool anybody.

If you want more guitars, more ‘Legendary Child,’ more of the much-hyped Jack Douglas sound of Aerosmith‘s rockin’ ’70s, then their new single is not going to satisfy. You might be better off checking out the band’s other new song, ‘Lover Alot,’ instead.
‘What Could Have Been Love’ is the AC radio hit the group needs to reach a wide audience and sell a ton of copies of ‘Music From Another Dimension‘ on Nov. 6.

One-time Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant imposed himself on singer-songwriter Amy Cook recently, not that she objected. Cook is releasing her new album ‘Summer Skin’ on Aug. 28, and it will feature a track with Plant called ‘It’s Gonna Rain.’
