Bruce Springsteen Is the Inspiration for Superman’s New ‘Contemporary’ Comic Book Look

According to comic writer Grant Morrison, who’s spearheading the upcoming reboot of DC’s ‘Action Comics’ title, Superman’s new look was inspired by none other than Springsteen himself.

Twisted Sister Rocks Again with ‘Double Live’

A little rock ‘n’ roll attitude and a whole lot of makeup can go a long, long way. Just ask the members of Twisted Sister, who will celebrate their 40th anniversary next year — and who are gearing up for the release of a double live DVD, fittingly titled ‘Double Live: Northstage Theatre 1982 / New York Steel Benefit show 2001.’

As you’d guess from the title, ‘Double Live’ collects a pair of Twisted Sister concerts, one from the band’s early ’80s heyday, and another from a reunion performance staged by the classic lineup to benefit the families of safety workers who perished in the September 11 attacks. As the DVD press release puts it, “The reaction to Twisted Sister’s set was overwhelming and led directly to the ongoing existence of the band today.”

Puddle of Mudd Covers Led Zeppelin, Elton John, and More on New Album [VIDEO]

When they entered the studio to work on songs for a follow-up to 2009′s ‘Volume 4: Songs in the Key of Love & Hate,’ Puddle of Mudd had a hard time finding the inspiration for new material — so they decided just to have fun playing some of their favorite tunes by other artists.

“We were really burned out, and when we started trying to write again it just wasn’t time yet,” said guitarist Paul Phillip in a recent Billboard interview. “We had been doing (AC/DC’s) ‘TNT’ and (the Steve Miller Band’s) ‘The Joker’ and had so much fun with those that one thing led to another, and we decided to make a covers record. It was just something fun to do, and we had a blast.”

Tom Petty Demands Michele Bachmann’s Campaign Stop Using ‘American Girl’

Michele Bachmann has now been told by Tom Petty that his song ‘American Girl’ is off limits for her presidential campaign.

Petty’s outspoken protectiveness of his music is certainly nothing new — in the ’80s, he engaged in a protracted public legal battle with his former label, MCA, over rising record prices, and more recently, he asked the Bush campaign to refrain from using his songs at campaign events.

Gregg Allman Speaks Out To Increase Hepatitis Awareness

He’s been tied to the whipping post, he’s suffered the Statesboro blues, and he’s been through crazy love, so it might seem like nothing can hurt Gregg Allman at this point — but the Allman Brothers Band frontman faced some scary medical issues last year, and now he’s using his music to help spread awareness.

Diagnosed with hepatitis C, which he says he picked up from a dirty tattoo needle in his 20s, Allman was forced to undergo a liver transplant last year, and his new lease on life has led to a flurry of activity – including his new album, ‘Low Country Blues,’ as well as a public campaign to draw attention to the disease.
