In the trailer for ‘Beware of Mr. Baker,’ Ginger Baker, the former drummer of Cream and Blind Faith is declared to be many things. Some desirable. Others? Not so much. The skins smasher is declared mad. He is described as looking like the devil. It is said that he is what the drums are all about. He is christened a lovable rogue and the world’s greatest drummer. How’s that for polarizing? He is certainly a lot of different things to a lot of people.
Mark your calendars for June 18, Aerosmith fans.That’s when the band’s tour kicks off, according to frontman Steven Tyler. Tyler will be all done with his ‘American Idol’ judging duties by then and ready to hit the road hard!
The U.K. numbers are in and Van Halen’s ‘A Different Kind of Truth,’ which is their first album in 14 years and first with David Lee Roth at the vocal helm in 28 years, debuted at No. 6 on the sales charts. Bravo! Congrats to the band on the first sales accolade to come in. But wait. There’s more to come, VH fans.
Drummer Bill Ward’s withdrawal from Black Sabbath‘s reunion album and tour due to his displeasure with the contract situation continues to be a hot topic. Ward’s son Aron issued a lengthy Facebook post about the subsequent media frenzy over Ward’s self-imposed exile, hoping to set the record straight and prevent the press and fans from further pouncing upon his father.
Double your rock ‘n’ roll pleasure. Neil Young has finally and officially confirmed that he has two Crazy Horse albums on tap. The first record with his beloved on-again, off-again backing band is fully finished and it’s titled ‘Americana,’ while the second one is currently being fashioned.
Now, this is what we call beating the system. A South Florida-based billionaire has legally (and perhaps brilliantly, if it pays off) adopted his 42-year-old girlfriend and not because they are into some seriously creepy role playing that they’ve taken a bit too far outside of the bedroom.
‘Victoria’s Secret’ model Adriana Lima is a hot chick and Motley Crue is a ‘gets-all-the-hot-chicks’ type of hard rock band. What a match, right? These two bastions of dude culture collide in a 2012 Kia Optima commercial (thanks Loudwire) and our heads were about to blow upon watching it.
The Scorpions announced in 2010 that they would release ‘Sting in the Tail’ as their final album and then head off into the sunset with a farewell tour before retiring from active duty as rockers. But much like many rockers who release “goodbye” albums and embark on sayonara tours, the Scorps were not done stinging, so to speak.
The Muppets are the latest celebrities — they are A-listers in the plush world, mind you – to appear in a Google TV ad. In their spot, Kermit & Co. hawk Google+ to the strains of ‘Under Pressure’ by Queen and David Bowie.
With the onslaught of rock bands marketing their own brands of libations, Billboard elected to examine several such beverages via a wine tasting panel at New York’s City Winery.
