Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler says Tony Iommi is inspiring the rest of the band to work harder as they rehearse new songs for their upcoming album. The guitarist has already written two songs since being diagnosed with lymphoma earlier this month.
The new Bruce Springsteen album will have social overtones, and will include “new textures and styles.” Rolling Stone reports that the rocker is nearly ready to unveil his 17th studio album and tour dates with the E Street Band. Information about the new single, “We Take Care of Our Own,’ has also been revealed.
During an interview with Cack Blabbath, the one-time VH frontman continues to give honest answers to questions about the band’s reunion with Roth, even if it means widening the chasm between him and his former bandmates.
A strange and vaguely familiar character was introduced during last night’s episode of ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.’ The talk-show host married the looks of Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow and early-70s David Bowie into one, glamorous yet reverent character called “Tebowie.”
John Fogerty revealed he’s been working on a new solo album that could include an all-star lineup of guest appearances. The odds of him patching things up with former Creedence Clearwater Revival bandmates for this project, a separate project or a future tour remain slimmer than Vanilla Ice being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. (Sad thing is, even he might get in before Rush or Kiss.)
Suddenly band class in Los Angeles just got a whole lot cooler. Eddie Van Halen has donated 75 guitars from his personal collection to music programs in the L.A. area. The rocker teamed up with the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation to provide instruments to schools without enough for students to play.
Much like they did for the 2007-08 reunion tour, Van Halen has crossed genres in selecting an opening act for their 2012 tour. According to Rolling Stone, none other than Kool and the Gang will open select shows when things kick off on Feb. 18 in Louisville, Ken.
While the choice is somewhat of a head-scratcher, the unconventional pairing could be a lot of fun, depending on which set Kool bring, the funk of the ’70s (check out ‘Spirit of the Boogie‘) or the less memorable R&B of the ’80s (‘Joanna‘).
Van Halen have been rehearsing for their 2012 tour for months, and tonight (Jan. 5) some lucky folks will get a first listen to songs from their new album — rumored to be called ‘A Different Kind of Truth’ — at the Cafe Wha? in New York City. Eddie, Alex, Wolfg
