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

  • It would appear 2017 is just as deadly for celebrities as 2016 was, because last night we lost another legendary rocker – John Geils of J. Geils Band. John was found dead in his home in Massachusetts at the age of 71. Foul play is not expected in the cause of death.
  • Hey big Led Zeppelin fans – we get to hear a classic by the legendary rockers in the new Thor trailer. Thor:Ragnarok hits theaters on November 3rd – but this isn’t the first time “Immigrant Song” has been used in cinemas. It was also in 2003’s School of Rock and 2007’s Shrek the Third.
  • Even though Black Sabbath is all done touring and making new music, we might be getting a live new LP of their final shows. Along with the news of a possible live album, it sounds like the band is in the works for a full length documentary!
  • The last time former Journey singer Steve Perry released a solo project was back in 1994. But now it would appear we are getting a new one later this year! Perry mentioned this new album is very emotional, as a lot of it was written about someone he loved and lost to breast cancer.
