Every weekday we take a look at what’s happening in music news. Check out the headlines for today, here!

  • Bruce Springsteen made one Australian teen’s dreams come true – TWICE! On February 16th, Bruce invited Nathan Testa on stage after seeing that he made a sign saying he skipped school to go to the show, and would like to play “Growin’ Up” with Bruce on stage. So what does Bruce do? Invites him up. Apparently though, this isn’t the first time Nathan has been on stage with Bruce – he was once invited up when Nathan was 11!
  • Over the weekend we had a huge Beatles reunion! Paul McCartney joined Ringo Starr to help lay some bass tracks down on Starr’s new upcoming LP. Who also joined the party for good measure? Joe Walsh!
  • Roger Waters is going to be a busy man this year. He announced last week that he would like to perform Pink Floyd‘s The Wall at the Mexican/American boarder for a political statement against President Trump’s plan to build a wall. Also, we just got word that he is coming out with new material on his new album Is This The Life We Really Want? that currently has no release date. Don’t forget, Waters is also going on tour – and we can see him at Xcel Energy Center on July 26th.
  • Earlier last week we heard rumors that Kid Rock could be running for a seat in the U.S. Senate. Now, we have word that Ted Nugent could be his competition. Both artists are well-known republicans, and both would run for the seat in Michigan for 2018.
