The biggest classic rock stories of the week find us saying sad goodbyes to two highly influential (and very different) guitar players, wishing Foreigner keyboardist Michael Bluestien all the best in his recently revealed cancer battle, and giggle as Gene Simmons’s famous collection of nudie pictures goes up in flames on his terribly corny TV show.

We also get our first look at Andre 3000 dressed up as Jimi Hendrix for his role in a controversial upcoming film, learn way more than we really wanted to about Boston singer Brad Delp’s last days and the legal battle that followed it, hear former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony weigh in on the group’s recently announced tour delay, and in the biggest (no wait, make that smallest) surprise of the week, hear about Guns N’ Roses starting a show late.
