Pearl Jam are taking their time with the follow-up to 2009′s ‘Backspacer’ album, but the band members have been helping to tide fans over with various side projects, the latest being bassist Jeff Ament’s new band, RNDM.
When Tommy Lee posted an open letter to fans a couple of weeks ago griping about people always wanting to have their picture taken with him, some took it as petty complaining from a rock star who’s lost touch with the people who helped make him famous. But in a recent interview, he revealed that his misgivings run a little deeper.
Syfy’s latest show claims to depict teams of paranormal investigators conducting “first-person investigations of the most frightening claims of paranormal activity along America’s remote back roads.” All of which would sound odd enough if it weren’t for the fact that Ozzy Osbourne‘s son Jack is one of the people doing the investigating.
As if recording a cranked-up collection of American folk standards with Crazy Horse wasn’t enough activity for one year, Neil Young is also getting ready to strap on his guitar, turn the amps up, and hit the road for a steadily expanding series of dates — including appearances at Red Rocks, the Voodoo Fest, and Outside Lands.
In a move that will finally target the elusive demographic of beer drinkers who love classic rock and modern hip-hop, Budweiser has announced plans to debut a new commercial during the Super Bowl that mashes up the Cult‘s ‘She Sells Sanctuary’ with the recent Flo Rida hit ‘Good Feelin’.’
Four years after their acrimonious split, the members of Velvet Revolver reunited with lead singer Scott Weiland for a brief live set last night (Jan. 12) — and now a message on the band’s website is causing some to question whether Weiland could be back in the fold on a more permanent basis.
Being in the school band just got a whole lot cooler for some of the kids in the Los Angeles area: Eddie Van Halen has teamed up with the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation to donate 75 guitars from his personal collection to schools that don’t have enough funding to pay for instruments. For Van Halen, it was a simple case of giving back — as he put it simply, “Music education and families are dealing with the economic times, and I wanted to help them.”
Just days after they announced the cities for their upcoming tour of what they’re calling “classic theatres,” Jane’s Addiction have revealed the dates — and they’ve also lined up a sweet high-profile gig at Volkswagen’s pre-Super Bowl Rock & Roll Fan Tailgate Party on Feb. 5, where they’ll be appearing with the Roots and DJ Pete Wentz.
Limp Bizkit‘s Fred Durst promised fans that he’d have “huge news” about the band this month, and just in the nick of time, he’s lived up to his word: According to an announcement released today, he and his bandmates will be entering 2012 ready to continue their “true rock and roll journey” without a record label.
New Year’s resolutions: Most people don’t live up to them, but everyone makes ‘em — even your favorite hard rockers. How do we know? Thanks to the good people at Noisecreep, who asked a long list of rock’s heaviest hitters to share their plans for 2012, including Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine, Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess, Halestorm singer Lzzy Hale, Skillet vocalist John Cooper and Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack.
