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

  • We just got word that Gregg Allman of the Allman Brothers Band is in hospice. He cancelled his 2017 tour last month and apparently a recent liver transplant failed to take. We’ll keep you up to date on Gregg’s condition.
  • Neil Young has always been interested in the business side of audio streaming – and even though his Pono player was unsuccessful, he is now looking at a different streaming company to start. He’s calling it Xstream, where you’ll get the best audio quality your system can support. There is no release date for this new audio streaming service yet.
  • Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s biopic Street Survivors just started filming today, highlighting the band’s early successes and the infamous 1977 plane crash that killed three of the band members. There were three other casualties with the crash, including one of the road managers and both pilots of the plane.
  • Former Kinks frontman Ray Davies just recently released his latest LP Americana – but now he’s telling us that there were 20 unfinished songs that didn’t make the album. So now, Davies plans on polishing them up and releasing them to us soon!
