Blues music has always been important to Robert Plant, and the same can be said of Clarksdale, Mississippi. Not only has Plant been there more than once to explore its deep blues history, he and fellow Led Zeppelin legend Jimmy Page honored the city by naming their 1998 joint studio effort ‘Walking Into Clarksdale.’
Clarksdale is where Plant will be in August when he headlines the 25th anniversary edition of the Sunflower River Blues and Gospel Festival.
From early 2005 to late 2009, U2 grossed boatloads of money from their Vertigo Tour and every-bit-as-massive 360 Degree Tour.
At the same time, bassist Adam Clayton claims he was losing big bucks, too. Clayton says his personal assistant back then misappropriated $7.5 million of his hard-earned money, and now Clayton is suing all of the parties believed to be involved.
You can fill more than a few lunch pails with Bruce Springsteen songs about the thoughts and struggles of the workingman. Make some room next to the thermos for ‘Jack of All Trades,’ a moving new ballad from his upcoming album that’s now being streamed on the Internet.
A year ago, Slash was in Texas rocking out with pop stars the Black Eyed Peas and Usher as part of the Super Bowl XLV halftime show.
This past weekend, he was a good 2,000-plus miles away from Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis — and for good reason. The former Guns N’ Roses guitarist was in Los Angeles wrapping up his second solo studio album, which is slated for a May 22 release on Slash’s own Dik Hayd International imprint.
At the start of the 1990s, young guitarist Jason Becker was riding high, having joined forces with ex-Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth to record what would become Roth’s third full-length solo album, 1991′s ‘A Little Ain’t Enough.’
But around the same time, Becker was diagnosed with the neurodegenerative disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Now paralyzed and unable to speak or play guitar, Becker still continues to make new music. His incredible story has been captured in the new documentary ‘Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet,’ which will make its world premiere March 3 in San Jose, California.
As the reunited Sabbath moves forward with a new album and tour, Iommi will be armed with two new replicas of the trusty guitar made specifically for him by a craftsman in the band’s hometown of Birmingham, England.
A final album and one last big tour are standard moves for a band mapping out an acrimony-free farewell.
Those appear to be part of Motley Crue‘s agenda over the next few years — but something much more definitive-sounding is a feature film based on the group’s best-selling autobiography, ‘The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band.’ And while Nikki Sixx claims he’s not at liberty to discuss the project at the present time, the Crue bassist has actually been very chatty lately about the forthcoming movie.
