Classic Rolling Stones Shows Hitting Stores in November

Thursday, September 18th, 2014 by

Posted in Music News

Eagle Rock EntertainmentTwo vintage Rolling Stones concerts will be released on DVD, CD, vinyl and via digital formats in November.

Eagle Rock Entertainment’s new From the Vault series will kick off with Hampton Coliseum — Live in 1981 on November 4, followed by L.A. Forum — Live in 1975 on November 18.

Footage from both concerts has been carefully restored, with the sound newly mixed by producer Bob Clearmountain, whose previous credits include the Stones albums Tattoo You and Still Life.

The two-and-a-half-hour Hampton Coliseum show features footage from the December 18, 1981, tour stop in Virginia that was also guitarist Keith Richards‘ birthday.

The L.A. Forum show from 1975 was from the group’s Tour of the Americas ’75 — its first trek with then-newcomer Ronnie Wood on guitar.

Don Henley Honors Robert Redford for Environmental Activism

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 by

Posted in Music News

Kevin Mazur/Wire ImageIt was an Eagles singer presenting to the star of 1986′s Legal Eagles, as Don Henley awarded legendary director and actor Robert Redford with the 2014 Global Environmental Leadership Award from the Walden Woods Project in Boston on Tuesday night.

Henley presented Redford with the award — first bestowed upon President Bill Clinton in 2012 — to honor the movie icon’s enduring commitment to a wide range of environmental initiatives.

A fundraising dinner, which included a concert by Henley’s Eagles, raised $1.6 million for the project.  The Walden Woods Project preserves the land, literature and legacy of American author, philosopher and naturalist Henry David Thoreau by cultivating an ethic of environmental stewardship and social responsibility.

In his remarks, Henley stated Redford is “an ardent conservationist and environmentalist; an individual who stands for social responsibility and political involvement; an artist and businessman who is a staunch supporter of uncompromised creative expression,” reports the Boston Globe.

Redford accepted the award, telling the crowd his journey into environmental activism began in 1968.

KISS Raises $1 Million for Renovation of Military Museum

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 by

Posted in Music News

Brian LoweIt isn’t often KISS goes without makeup for a live show these days, but the band made an exception, playing an acoustic gig to raise money for a military museum in Oregon.

The group previously has supported the Historical Outreach Foundation in its goal of raising $15 million to renovate the Oregon Military Museum, but the foundation’s event this past Sunday in Lake Oswego, Oregon, marked the first time the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers performed at one of the foundation’s events. In all, KISS helped raise $1 million toward the endeavor. Tickets to the evening cost $2,500. The evening also auctioned off one of Paul Stanley‘s guitars, which he has played since 1989, for $20,000, reports The Oregonian.

KISS guitarist and native Oregonian Tommy Thayer is the link to the project. The museum will be named after Thayer’s father, Brigadier General James B. Thayer, a 93-year-old World War II veteran who freed Holocaust survivors from the Nazi concentration camps in 1945.

KISS bassist Gene Simmons told The Oregonian that museums are important to support for several reasons.

“A museum is a living history book, because young people today and the future generations can’t just read books or watch it on video because it’s unemotional,” Simmons said.

He continued that honoring the military with a museum shining a light on men and women in uniform is relevant to understanding current events.

“There is evil in the world,” he said. “People are being beheaded today, not in some medieval time.”

Check out the set list from the show below:

“Comin’ Home”
“Hard Luck Woman”
“Calling Dr. Love”
“Do You Love Me?”
“Plaster Caster”
“Shout It Out Loud”
“Got to Choose”
“Christine Sixteen”
“Lick It Up”
“Goin’ Blind”
“Love Her All I Can”
“Hide Your Heart”
“Beth”
“Rock and Roll All Nite”

Neil Diamond Releases Video for New Song, “Nothing but a Heartache”

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 by

Posted in Music News

Image Courtesy Capitol RecordsNeil Diamond is giving fans a glimpse into his forthcoming release, Melody Road, due October 21, with the release of a video for a new song, “Nothing but a Heartache.”

Seated on a stool and strumming an acoustic guitar, Neil wraps his raspy vocals around a beautiful melody that begins softly then builds with a dramatic, orchestral crescendo.

Diamond sings, “It was nothing but a heartache/in the middle of a bad dream/like I took on the whole world/ and I never had a chance girl.”

The song is trademark Diamond, with a hook that stays with a listener long after the final fade.  The video is streaming now on RollingStone.com.

As previously reported, the 12-track collection, which was co-produced by Don Was and Jacknife Lee, also is the acclaimed singer/songwriter’s first release as part of his new deal with Capitol Records, and will be packaged with a 36-page book that includes the lyrics and chords to each tune.

Sammy Hagar Says No New Chickenfoot Album Now, but Has an Acoustic Record on the Way

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 by

Posted in Music News

Jay Blakesberg/UMeSammy Hagar is a busy man — so busy, he says he doesn’t have time right now to focus on one of his most popular music projects, the supergroup Chickenfoot.

“We’re not making an album [now],” the Red Rocker tells ABC News Radio when asked about a follow-up to 2011′s Chickenfoot III.  “[Guitarist] Joe [Satriani] and I are writing songs a little bit…We had a couple ideas, and Joe’s got some fantastic musical ideas, and I’m just trying to find room in my life to do another Chickenfoot album.”

Hagar explains that if he commits doing a new Chickenfoot record, the band also would have to tour behind it, “and to do all of that, that’s a year or more of my time.  And I just…love doing new things and I’m doing so much.”

Among those “new things” is the group Sammy put together for his recent “A Journey Through the History of Rock” trek, which includes Chickenfoot/ex-Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony, Led Zeppelin drummer Jason Bonham, and Wabos guitarist Vic Johnson.  The band will be playing next at Hagar’s four-show Birthday Bash in October at his Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

The 66-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer also reveals that he has a new album on the way, an acoustic record he says he was inspired to do while putting together the star-studded Acoustic-4-a-Cure benefit concert earlier this year with Metallica‘s James Hetfield.

“Working up that set for myself, I learned how to play and sing acoustically, and I loved it so much I just took a bunch of my old songs and made a record called Light Roast,” he tells ABC News Radio.  “It’s an acoustically-brewed CD.”

About reworking the well-known songs from his back catalog as unplugged tunes, Sammy says, “Some of them I think are better than they’ve ever been like this.”  The veteran rocker adds, however, that he has no intentions of doing an acoustic tour to support the album.

“You know, everyone says, ‘Well, why don’t you go out, just play like coffeehouses?’” says Hagar.  “Well, I’d love to but, you know, I’m busy.”

Hagar’s next shows will be the aforementioned Birthday Bash performances, scheduled for October 7, 9, 11 and 13.

Sparse Version of George Harrison’s “Dark Horse” Streaming Online

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 by

Posted in Music News

Jean-Marie Perier/UMeWith one week to go before the official release of the George Harrison box set collecting all his solo albums for the Beatles‘ Apple label, fans can get a preview by listening to an early acoustic version of his signature song, “Dark Horse,” now streaming online at RollingStone.com.

The studio version of the song, originally released in 1974 as the title track of the album of the same name, featured a total of 11 vocalists and musicians, including Billy Preston on keys, and reached the top 20 of the U.S. singles chart. The acoustic version is noticeably leaner, with just Harrison, an acoustic guitar, and a few harmonizing singers on the track.

As previously reported, the George Harrison: The Apple Years 1968-75 box set will be released next week. It includes remastered versions of Harrison’s first six solo albums, some unreleased bonus tracks, a DVD containing music videos, a short film directed by Harrison’s wife Olivia and a book filled with essays and unpublished photos.

The late Beatle will be honored all next week on the late-night talk show Conan, beginning next Monday with performances by Beck, Norah Jones, and Harrison’s son, Dhani. The show airs 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday on TBS.

Joey Ramone’s Friends and Family React to U2′s Tribute Song

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 by

Posted in Music News

Image Courtesy Interscope RecordsFamily and friends of Joey Ramone have nothing but kind words for U2, who honored the late singer with the song “The Miracle (of Joey Ramone),” the lead single from the band’s just-released album, Songs of Innocence.

“I’m not sure grateful is the right word, but awestruck is a better description,” Ramone’s brother, Mickey Leigh, told MTV News.

“It’s so beautiful. I loved it. It’s Bono’s interpretation and his spirit, but it also captures Joey’s spirit,” he said. “He described my brother’s spirit well. I think he got just what Joey would have wanted out of it.”

Longtime Ramones drummer Marky Ramone felt the late singer would have been “honored” by the song, which never mentions his name, but tells the story of how Bono and the boys sneaked in to see the band in their teens in what was a life-changing event in their musical lives.

Former D-Generation singer Jesse Malin, who became a close friend of The Ramones when the band took D-Gen out on tour, recalled the time the punk rocker called him out of a recording session and invited him to go see U2 at their appearance on Saturday Night Live in 2000.

“The thing I respect about U2 beyond this song is how they’re giving a shout-out to Joey as their inspiration,” he said. “They’re not on a bandwagon of ‘now we’ll be into the Ramones because they’re dead.’ He [Joey] got to feel the love and respect from them and this song is coming from truly the right place and I totally back it after seeing how they were with him.”

Ramone passed away on April 15, 2001 of lymphoma at the age of 49; the last song he heard in the hospital was U2′s “In a Little While.”

U2 paid their respects to the singer three days later during a show in San Diego, performing The Ramones’ “I Remember You” and their own “Walk On” in his memory.

Gary Cherone’s Hurtsmile Hurls “Retrogrenade,” Issues New Single ” Rock N’ Roll Cliche”

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014 by

Posted in Music News

Image Courtesy Hired Gun MediaThe rock and roll lifestyle is loaded with cliches — so many that former Extreme and Van Halen vocalist Gary Cherone thought it was great subject matter for a song.

On October 7, Cherone and his band, Hurtsmile, will release their second full-length album, Retrogrenade, on Cherone’s own label, Slipkid Records, and the newly issued first single, “Rock N’ Roll Cliche,” was inspired by the bands that shaped his own musical worldview, says Cherone.

“‘Rock N’ Roll Cliche’ can be summed up in the line ‘got to give the people what they want,’” Cherone tells ABC News Radio. “It’s a nod to the classic rock I grew up on. The opening riff just reminds me of that era and the lyrics hint at some of those influences.”

The lyrics, “shake it up, shake for me baby,” and “come on and join together with the band,” with nods to Led Zeppelin and The Who, make their point against a driving guitar attack.

You can hear the song now streaming on the SoundCloud page of One Management.

Hurtsmile is the collaboration of Cherone with his brother/guitarist Mark Cherone of Flesh and SuperZero), as well as bassist Joe Pessia  and drummer Dana Spellman.

The band will play a special performance at an official record release party October 11 at the MIXX 350 nightclub in Boston, Massachusetts.

The track listing for Retrorenegade is below:

“Rock N’ Roll Cliche”
“Hello, I Must Be Going”
“Big Government”
“I Still Do”
“Sing a Song (My Mia)”
“Anymore (Don’t Want My Love)”
“Where Do We Go From Here”
“A Melody for You”
“Wonder What”
“Walk Away”
“Goodbye”
“Pump It Up”
