NBC’s ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ continued ‘Bruce Springsteen Week’ with a surprise for its 600th episode. Although it was announced that Elvis Costello would perform Bruce’s 1987 hit ‘Brilliant Disguise,’ it was not revealed until the show aired that Costello, who’s got quite a good catalog of his own songs, would also record a second Springsteen song, ‘Fire,’ as a web-only exclusive.
We got some rough news out of England this morning when we learned that Meat Loaf developed an as-yet undisclosed illness and was forced to cancel a British television appearance. The incident took place backstage minutes before he was scheduled to appear on the talk show, ‘Loose Women,’ and shortly after he was seen goofing around with a banana on his head to the delight of the show’s staff.
Don’t you hate it when you go to a concert and all you get are the hits? Or worse, when it’s the exact same show as the last two tours? Van Halen fans have less to fear right now because Diamond Dave, Eddie and the boys are breaking out some obscurities on their current tour.
Once again, the hard rock world will spend Memorial Day Weekend converging on Pryor, Okla. for the seventh annual Rocklahoma Festival. Earlier today, AEG Live, the promoters of the festival, announced the lineup for the three-day event. As usual, this year’s roster brings together many top present and classic hard rock and metal acts from May 25-27.
If you were Motley Crue‘s notoriously decadent singer Vince Neil, where else would you want to celebrate your birthday but Las Vegas? Neil’s 51st birthday on Feb. 8 coincided neatly with the band’s residence at Sin City’s Hard Rock Hotel And Casino, which runs through Feb. 19, and his bandmates commemorated the occasion in style.
Questions about Axl Rose’s longtime inability to start concerts on time may have been answered thanks to a guy who was there at the beginning, Alan Niven. In a recent interview, Niven, who managed Guns N’ Roses from 1986 to 1991, said that one of the band’s biggest breaks, opening up for Aerosmith on their ‘Permanent Vacation’ tour in the summer of 1988, almost didn’t happen due to Axl’s reluctance to perform.
Even among the usual collection of photo mismatches that happen at every awards show, this one from the Grammys stands out: a fishnet-clad Lady Gaga planting one on Sir Paul McCartney‘s cheek, much to his abject horror. Macca’s face seems to scream out, “And I thought Yoko was nuts!”
The final question as to the lineup of the E Street Band was answered today when Bruce Springsteen released the names of the extra musicians who will be joining the group on their upcoming ‘Wrecking Ball’ world tour.
VH-1 Classic has announced that the tenth season of ‘That Metal Show’, hosted by Eddie Trunk, Jim Florentine and Don Jamieson, will premiere on March 31.
