They spent most of the ’90s and early aughts recording sporadically as Heart, but Ann and Nancy Wilson appear to be making up for lost time: 2012 will bring plenty of live dates, a new box set, a memoir of their time in the rock ‘n’ roll trenches, and — most exciting of all for longtime fans — an album of new material.
Talk of Queen touring with ‘American Idol’ star Adam Lambert has been floated and denied more times than we can count, but just because Lambert put the official kibosh on those rumors a couple of weeks ago, that doesn’t mean he won’t be working with the band in some capacity.
Can you feel that? Oh no, wait, it’s more than a feeling. Yes, that’s right — while work on its long-delayed sixth studio album continues, Boston is returning to the road for a summer tour. As frontman Tom Scholz joked in his announcement to fans, this latest run of dates comes just in time for the end of the world.
Have you ever dreamed of seeing Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, Def Leppard, and Motley Crue on the same bill? Well, this year you can! Sort of. As long as you’re cool with only seeing individual members of the bands — and you live in South America.
The next time you feel like listening to ‘Spies Like Us,’ ‘Silly Love Songs,’ or ‘Biker Like an Icon,’ you won’t be able to turn to your favorite streaming service. Thanks to a removal order recently issued by the Universal and Concord Music Groups, all Wings and Paul McCartney solo albums have been pulled from the digital shelves of Spotify, MOG, Rdio, and anybody else who charges a monthly fee for listening to music you don’t actually own.
While we wait for definitive word on whether the Rolling Stones will celebrate their 50th anniversary by going on tour this year, we can content ourselves with the band’s ongoing series of ‘official bootleg’ releases — and at least one of the band members is hitting the stage in the near future: Keith Richards, who’s performing at a benefit in honor of recently deceased guitar legend Hubert Sumlin.
Metallica and Lou Reed‘s ‘Lulu’ might have been one of the most savagely reviewed rock records of 2011, but don’t expect Lars Ulrich to take any of that criticism to heart. During a recent interview with the Brazilian podcast Wikimetal, Ulrich reflected on ‘Lulu,’ offering some candid thoughts on the album — and insisting that people have actually told him they liked it.
Black Sabbath sounds determined to keep recording its next album without drummer Bill Ward — in fact, they may have already lined up his replacement. But disappointed fans who had been looking forward to a full reunion of the band’s original lineup aren’t taking the news lying down.
