The details of the much talked about Beach Boys 50th anniversary tour are coming to light, with the first batch of dates being announced. This is the first major Beach Boys tour to include all surviving original members in a long long time. The flames of anticipation were fanned with the band’s appearance on last week’s Grammy Awards show.
Of all of this year’s inductees to the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, the highest drama factor circles around, who else, Guns N’ Roses! While the big question of “will they or won’t they” reunite to perform at the event remains, we now have confirmation that all five original members of the fractured group will be in attendance.
48 years ago today (Feb. 9), everything changed. Well, maybe not everything, but with the arrival of the Beatles on our shores and their debut performance on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show,’ seeds were most definitely planted.
Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band will once again be hitting the road for a run of shows this summer. The tour kicks off June 14 in Niagara Falls and wraps up July 21 at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles, Calif. This will be the twelfth incarnation of Ringo’s cast of characters known as the “All Starr Band,” the idea of which, according to Ringo, is that “everybody on stage is a star in their own right.”
Following the success of last year’s new album and tour from Night Ranger, bassist and vocalist Jack Blades is set to release a brand new solo record. ‘Rock N Roll Ride,’ set to be released March 27 on the Frontiers label, will be Blades’ second ever solo release, following his 2004 self-titled disc.
Following in the conceptual footsteps of Pink Floyd‘s ‘The Wall’ and the Who‘s ‘Tommy,’ there may soon be a movie based on Kiss‘ 1981 concept album, ‘Music From The Elder.’ Independent British author and film maker Seb Hunter is taking the story to the big screen, with or without the endorsement of the grease paint wonders.
While on a press jaunt to promote the new season of ‘American Idol,’ Steven Tyler dished a little info on the long in the works new Aerosmith album, and it sounds like it won’t be all that long till we get our hands on it.
Wondering what to get that special someone on your Christmas list? Are they a Hendrix fan? Do you have $45,000 burning a hole in your pocket? Well someone did! At a recent auction listed by Gotta Have Rock And Roll, a contract signed by Jimi Hendrix sold for, get this, $45,960.00! The listing started at $10,000, but eight bids placed pushed the price up pretty quickly.
Looks like it could be the Beach Boys, not Van Halen, who are going to make big news by reuniting at the Grammy Awards this year. Rumors were flying at breakneck pace around the music business that Van Halen were to make some major announcement at the nominations telecast. That didn’t happen, and it may turn out it was a different iconic California band who appears at the actual ceremony.
It may not always come easy, but that hasn’t stopped our beloved Ringo Starr from rocking on year after year. Whether on tour with his ‘All Starr Band’ or in the studio recording new material, the ever youthful Mr. Starr just keep rolling along musically.
