Petty and the band are planning to release a live vinyl LP to mark the occasion, offering fans a chance to hear new versions of classic tracks, cuts from ‘Mojo,’ and a concert performance of the rare B-side ‘Sweet William.’
Williams, who compared a golf match between President Obama and Republican House Speaker John Boehner to “Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu,” attempted to clarify his remarks through a post on his website.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has mailed out the ballots for its 27th annual list of potential inductees, leaving it to the organization’s 500 voters to pick the winners from an eclectic group that includes first-time nominees as well as returning contenders.
Newly eligible artists who made this year’s cut include Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Guns N’ Roses, Heart, and Eric B. & Rakim, while the Beastie Boys, Donna Summer, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are among the veteran hopefuls.
For fans of Van Halen‘s original lineup, the band’s last three decades or so have been punctuated with more than a few frustrations and disappointments, including their brief reunion with David Lee Roth in 1996, bassist Michael Anthony’s rudely handled dismissal, and an overall lack of new music since a pair of new tracks were appended to the double-disc ‘Best of Both Worlds’ compilation way back in 2004.
Roth has been back in the band since 2006, with rumors of a new album persistently surfacing over the last five years. The buzz has grown louder than ever this year, and for awhile, it looked like this might finally be the year Van Halen came back — but it looks like we’ll have to keep on waiting.
It might say 2011 on your calendar, but this fall, it’s 1991 all over again, what with deluxe reissues of 20-year-old albums from bands including U2, Spin Doctors, and Pearl Jam, whose landmark debut ‘Ten’ was the inspiration for a new documentary from none other than ‘Singles’ and ‘Jerry Maguire’ director Cameron Crowe.
The film, titled ‘Pearl Jam Twenty,’ is getting a hefty double-disc soundtrack that includes live tracks, demos, and assorted rarities from Pearl Jam’s vaults — and although it doesn’t come out until September 20, you can listen to the whole thing now.
It wasn’t all that long ago that it seemed like Aerosmith might never record again — but they’re back in the studio, working on their first album of new material in a decade, and they’re giving fans an early behind-the-scenes look at the process.
The band’s latest in-studio video offers a glimpse of what appears to be one of the new songs in progress, with guitarist Joe Perry playing a blues riff while vocalist Steven Tyler works out a beat on the drums.
