Chickenfoot Drummer Chad Smith Looks to Kenny Aronoff to Replace Him on Tour

Side projects aren’t supposed to conflict with a musician’s main gig, but sometimes it does happen — just ask Chad Smith, the longtime Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer who also keeps the beat for the supergroup Chickenfoot.

The Chili Peppers and Chickenfoot have new studio albums coming out very soon. And with the likelihood that both bands will be on the road at the same time, Smith has called in a ringer to keep his ‘Foot stool warm: good buddy Kenny Aronoff.

Evanescence Singer Amy Lee Shows Off Surprising New Musical Gifts on Upcoming Album

From the outside, it would appear as though the last few years have been relatively quiet for Evanescence. But a lot has happened in the life of leader and big-voiced singer Amy Lee during that time.

Starting around 2007, she pursued some personal growth — or as she puts it, made a conscious effort to “find myself as an adult.” And in the process, Lee also expanded her musical horizons by learning the harp, which she plays on Evanescence’s new self-titled third album, which arrives Oct. 11.

Release Date for New Jane’s Addiction Album Is Pushed Back

Patience is a virtue, especially for Jane’s Addiction fans. After all, the band has released only four studio albums since its self-titled debut dropped in 1987, and it’s been eight years since the last one, ‘Strays.’

Ex-Guns ‘N’ Roses Bassist Duff McKagan Launches Wealth Management Firm

As the bassist for Guns N’ Roses, Duff McKagan was paid quite handsomely. But at the time, he didn’t really have a firm grasp on the ins and outs of his earnings.

He does now. And once Meridian Rock Capital Management launches in October, McKagan and his fellow co-founders will do their best to see that other musicians stay in tune with their money and don’t ever end up singing the financial blues.

Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic to Play Seattle Show Celebrating 20th Anniversary of ‘Nevermind’

Since Kurt Cobain’s death in 1994 and Nirvana‘s inevitable breakup, Dave Grohl has stayed in the limelight and has flourished as the leader and frontman of Foo Fighters.
