Surely one of the great joys of being Paul McCartney is knowing that for any project you undertake, you can work with whoever you want. After all, who wouldn’t want to work with a member of rock royalty? Well, besides Johnny Rotten, of course, but we don’t assume he and McCartney are best mates, anyway.
London’s Central Hall in Westminster saw the world premiere of a new symphonic work, ‘The Titanic Requiem’ tonight (April 10). The piece, which features the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, was written to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the famous ship on April 15, 1912. However, one of the composers of the piece, Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees, was unable to attend due to his deteriorating health.
Well, we knew it wouldn’t last. The news of the rumored romance between Axl Rose and Lana Del Rey had barely reached the entire Internet before it got quashed by Guns N’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba. A reporter for TMZ spoke to Asbha while he was walking hand-in-hand with a young woman and a large man (presumably a bodyguard) down a Los Angeles street and asked him if he had any information to give.
During his concert at the Royal Albert Hall on Thursday (March 29), Paul McCartney got by with a little help from his friends (officially the 1,587,204th time someone has referenced that song in an article about a guest appearance at a concert by a Beatle). Ronnie Wood, Roger Daltrey and Paul Weller sat in with McCartney’s band for a performance of the Beatles 1969 hit,’Get Back.’
Roger Taylor has taken on the role of serving as producer and musical director for the Queen Extravaganza, an “Official Queen Tribute Show,” which will hit clubs and theaters across North America this summer, including a date at a Twin Cities venue.
Rolling Stones fans may not get the 50th anniversary tour that they were hoping for in 2012, but they can take consolation in knowing that they will get a different – and cheaper – glimpse of the band through a new documentary. The film, which has no official title yet, will have its premiere at the band’s 50th anniversary celebrations in September and will be released through Eagle Rock Entertainment.
It’s often been said that the only two things that will survive a nuclear war are cockroaches and Keith Richards. However, it’s possible that the Rolling Stones guitarist might not be in good enough health to tour in celebration of the band’s 50th anniversary this year, as had been reported last month.
New York’s Carnegie Hall may seem like a strange place for a tribute to those scrappy hoodlums known as the Rolling Stones, but the prestigious venue will get its rocks off on March 13 with ‘The Music of the Rolling Stones.’ Classic artists like Jackson Browne, Ian Hunter & The Rant Band and Art Garfunkel will join 18 other acts to perform all 21 songs on the Stones’ compilation, ‘Hot Rocks: 1964-1971′ album.
Rush fans who have waited five years for new pearls of wisdom from their favorite band will soon be satisfied. According to reports that have not been confirmed by their label, their new album, ‘Clockwork Angels,’ will be released on May 29 in the United States, Japan and their native Canada.
Members of the Allman Brothers Band, Cheap Trick and other classic rock bands signed to Sony BMG will have reason to smile when they receive their next royalty statements.
