Paul McCartney hasn’t won over many people with the title of his latest album, ‘Kisses on the Bottom’ — especially not Brad Paisley. The country superstar went so far as to take to his Twitter account on Wednesday to send out a series of screeds against the name. “It’s only February, but Sir Paul is an absolute lock for worst album title of the year,” he wrote in one note. “Actually, maybe all time.”
Whatever happened to Gerald Bostock? That’s the question Jethro Tull‘s Ian Anderson looks to answer on April 2 with the release of ‘Thick as a Brick 2,’ the follow-up to Tull’s landmark 1972 album. Bostock was the fictional child author of the lyrics and now, 40 years later, a grown up Bostock returns as the lyricist on the new album. As a post on the Tull website reads: “Boy to man and beyond, it looks at what might have befallen the child poet Gerald Bostock in later life. Or, perhaps, any of us.”
Former Pink Floyd rocker Roger Waters has already announced a bunch of dates for his ‘The Wall’ North American summer trek, which is scheduled to kick off May 1 in Houston and run through a July 14 gig in Philadelphia. But one show that has not yet been revealed is a much-rumored stop at Boston’s Fenway Park, where ‘The Wall’ would fit in quite nicely next to the ballpark’s famed 37-foot-tall wall in left field known as the Green Monster. It almost seems like destiny that ‘The Wall’ would be performed next to the wall.
When Bruce Springsteen was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility in 1999, he entered as a solo artist and without any members of his long-running backing cohorts, the E Street Band. It wasn’t really considered much of a slight at the time — the Boss, after all, certainly deserves to be in there on his own.
But more than a dozen of years have now passed without the band joining the hallowed and frequently controversial Hall, and some fans are beginning to wonder if they’ll ever make it — and if Bruce should’ve turned down the honor until E Street was at his side.
Credits for that mind-blowing, 38-minute long mysterious jam session that popped up on Neil Young‘s website Saturday morning (Jan. 28) have been posted on the site. The track is titled ‘Horse Back’ and, as expected, it was the work of Young and his longtime backing band, Crazy Horse.
Lynyrd Skynyrd have signed on host and curate the 2012 Simple Man Cruise, a floating rock ‘n’ roll party set for Oct. 27-31 on Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest luxury liner, the Pearl. The cruise, which sets sail from Miami, will feature about a dozen different bands rocking the ship, including Skynyrd, the Doobie Brothers and up-and-coming Southern rockers like Blackberry Smoke and the Dirty Guv’nahs.
OK, so maybe we got a little carried away when we said Aerosmith singer Steven Tylermassacred the National Anthem before Sunday’s AFC title game between the Baltimore Ravens and Tyler’s beloved New England Patriots. Maybe his version was just a little “pitchy,” to use the parlance of ‘American Idol.’ Or maybe he was like the 32-yard field goal that Raven kicker Billy Cundiff missed with 15 seconds remaining to lose the game: just a bit off.
It’s one of the worst-kept secrets in all of New Jersey. Every year, the Light of Day organization holds a benefit concert at the Paramount Theater in Asbury Park to raise money for the fight against Parkinson’s disease, and (almost) every year Bruce Springsteen is a super secret unannounced special guest. It’s the reason this year’s show sold out in minutes — even when tickets had a face value upwards of $400.
The celebrity gossip website TheDirty.com has removed a naked picture of Neal Schon after receiving a cease-and-desist letter from the Journey guitarist’s attorney. The self-shot picture depicts Schon standing in front of a bathroom mirror with his shirt pulled up and naked from the chest down.
The older sister of George Harrison wants to set the story straight.
