- John Mellencamp is getting ready to release a new LP coming up in April, and he has just released the second single off of it. The new album is titled Sad Clowns & Hillbillies, and will be available April 21st. The second single is called "Grandview", and you can get the album's artwork and track listing. Don't forget - Johnny will be at the State Fair this summer!
- Besides the huge Oscar flub from Sunday night – there’s something else to talk about: Elton John hosting the 25th annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party, rounding up Sting and Adam Lambert. This year’s fundraising total hasn’t been announced, but the 2016 event brought in $6.2 million.
- We are still waiting on confirmation of a new AC/DC album with the help of Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose. Last week we heard rumors that we could get a new album in 2018 - but so far we have not gotten word from either band's representatives.
