Vince Neil of Motley Crue is no stranger to scuffles with the law — and now he’s back in court, where he’s set to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge stemming from an alleged disorderly conduct incident involving his ex-girlfriend, entertainment reporter Alicia Jacobs, and a pair of her companions at a Las Vegas comedy club.
“Mr. Neil is sorry he raised his voice,” said Neil’s defense attorney, David Chesnoff.
Apple Inc. and the Beatles have been intertwined since the computer giant’s earliest days, so it’s only fitting that the band’s music should be used to pay tribute to recently deceased company founder Steve Jobs.
Joe Walsh has a history of coming up with tongue-in-cheek titles for his solo albums, including ‘You Can’t Argue with a Sick Mind,’ ‘Got Any Gum?,’ and, of course, ‘You Bought It — You Name It.’ But for his upcoming release, due in the winter of 2012, he decided on a more reflective name: ‘Analog Man.’
Walsh explained the title during a recent interview with Ultimate Classic Rock, saying, “I know in the past, I’ve had screwy album titles, but I decided to call it ‘Analog Man.’ Because, you know, my generation of musicians, we grew up analog, and now it’s a digital world. We had to learn it, you know?”
Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ is lauded as one of the most important albums of the past few decades and its 20th anniversary is fast-approaching (feel old yet?). To celebrate, Spin magazine is releasing an unusual — and free — tribute.
Ah, Prince. Whether he’s changing his name to a symbol, scrawling slogans on his face, threatening to sue his fans, or publicly daydreaming about a world in which no one is allowed to cover his songs, he’s always good for a provocative quote or two.
His latest interview, with the UK’s Guardian, didn’t disappoint.
Even if he were simply one of the most critically revered songwriters of the rock era, Brian Wilson’s life story would be ripe for the film treatment. Toss in decades of eccentric behavior and lawsuits, and you’ve got yourself one heck of a biopic.
At least, that seems to be the thinking over at River Road Entertainment, the production company behind Terrence Malick’s ‘The Tree of Life,’ where Oren Moverman — the writer and director behind the Oscar-nominated ‘The Messenger’ — has been hired to write the screenplay.
Since starting out four decades ago, the Eagles have notched six number one albums, six Grammys, five number one singles, and sold more than 120 million albums. How do you celebrate your 40th anniversary after enjoying so much success?
The upcoming, as-yet untitled set, which will be the band’s 15th studio album in 42 years, is currently being recorded with executive producer Rick Rubin, who’s also serving as a band advisor in his capacity as president of their label, American Recordings.
He’s been one of the most sought-after producers in rock for 25 years — and now that he’s also co-chairman of Columbia Records, Rick Rubin is also one of the busiest, with his hands in a dizzying list of current and upcoming projects.
Rubin discussed a number of those albums during a recent Billboard interview, conducted to celebrate the huge success of Columbia artist Adele’s new album, ’21′(which, yes, Rubin co-produced). Up next on the schedule is the latest Red Hot Chili Peppers release, which he describes as a “Red Hot Chili Peppers that you’ve never heard before.”
Guitar legend Leslie West, whose work with the band Mountain has been part of rock history since their unforgettable performance at Woodstock, is recovering after doctors were forced to amputate part of one leg over the weekend.
West, who was in Mississippi for a Mountain performance, was rushed to a Biloxi emergency room after noticing swelling in his leg — a condition made more serious by West’s 30-year struggle with diabetes. In order to save his life, doctors removed his leg up to the knee.
