Chicago is the center of the music universe this week, at least where U.S. music fans are concerned, as Lollapalooza gets its annual spotlight. While they weren’t part of the actual Lollapalooza lineup, Jane’s Addiction did make an appearance in Chicago Saturday night.
Van Halen are definitely in demand, which can lead to a few bumps in the road when trying to schedule a world tour. Though the group did reveal plans to visit Japan this year a little while back, it looks as though they’ve not been able to nail down anything where Australia is concerned.
Though the world is still mourning the death of Jon Lord, the music continues to live on with the current lineup of Deep Purple. While it’s been since 2005 since we’ve had a new record, there is some good news for the band and their future.
Lollapalooza isn’t the only game for artists this weekend, as the indie-leaning Osheaga Festival is currently taking over Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal. And while it’s not exactly a hotbed for classic rock artists, the festival did provide a little nod to the past Friday night (Aug. 3) when MGMT trotted out their Rolling Stones cover.
Was there anyone in rock that had the range and the voice of late Queen singer Freddie Mercury? While most know him from his work with Queen, he did step out to explore his voice in a different style with the solo album ‘Barcelona.’
Matt Cameron will definitely look fondly upon 2011, as it was the year that his current band, Pearl Jam, celebrated the 20th anniversary of the ‘Ten’ album and spent a good portion of the year reflecting through concerts, films, books and special appearances. It was also the year that his original band, Soundgarden, truly started to find their groove as they worked toward a new album and played some dates after reuniting.
Neil Young may be 34 studio albums into his career, but that doesn’t mean he’s limited to reflecting on the past. In fact, a good portion of the Young’s tour opening set with Crazy Horse in Albuquerque Friday night (Aug. 3) was fresh for the audience.
Make no bones about it, Paul McCartney is not just dropping by the Olympics for the Opening Ceremony performance. Sir Paul is truly a fan of the athletes taking part in the games and continues to voice his opinion on his favorites in the media leading up to the ceremony.
With the London Olympics starting today (July 27), the British music body, PRS for Music, recently decided to conduct a poll to determine the most popular song when it came to sporting events, and a classic popular anthem has come out on top.
The ’80s were a prime period for Los Lobos, and while they most notably broke through with the music for the film ‘La Bamba,’ there’s another significant record with which they contributed to that you might not know they were ever associated with.
