Be Patient

I am back....well sort of.  I am using a different computer- mine, I guess is shot.  I will try and keep up with my daily features and hopefully get back to 'normal' in the very near future.  I ask for your patience and understanding in this mess.

Music News & Notes

Joe Perry: ‘Tyler’s Still In Aerosmith’

Joe Perry has exclusively told Classic Rock that Steven Tyler will remain a member of Aerosmith, even though another singer is being brought in.  The guitarist now says of the situation:

“Steven hasn’t quit the band, nor have we sacked him. We’re taking the attitude that he’s going on a vacation from Aerosmith. While he’s away working on other projects, the rest of us (Perry, guitarist Brad Whitford, bassist Tom Hamilton and drummer Joey Kramer) want to carry on playing live. So we will be bring another singer to make this happen.

“We’re not daft enough to think we can replace Steven, and that’s not our plan. But after 40 years of working together we just don’t wanna stop. How long with Steven be away? He says it’ll be two years, but I believe he’ll be back a lot sooner. It may end up that we only do 10 shows with the new person!”

Fucked Up announce Record Store Day 7"

Celebrated Toronto hardcore act Fucked Up has announced a new 7" that will be available as part of Record Store Day on April 17th. The band announced:

Somehow we've never participated in Record Store Day before. We've done lots of instores all over the world, and have had to stop at stores to shop in probably every record store in the free world. This year we decided to do something special for RSD, because we think it's important. This April you'll be able to leave your house and go to a record store and get this cool record. We decided to use our 7" as a tribute to a bunch of cool stores in the US. Ten stores will each be featured with their own cover artwork, using pictures that they sent in to us. The 7" is just gonna be the two daytrotter songs from couple tracks, plus one that isn't on the CD ("Crooked Head").

You can see all eleven covers, along with a lengthy vinyl love letter, at the band's blog. Fucked Up recently collected a bunch of tracks from their prolific 7" output and released them as Couple Tracks: Singles 2002-2009.


DISTURBED Begins Recording Next Album

According to The Pulse of Radio, DISTURBED has hit the studio in its hometown of Chicago to begin recording its fifth album, with a tentative summer release date planned. The group has not yet announced a title for the project, which will follow up 2008's "Indestructible". Guitarist Dan Donegan told The Pulse of Radio that DISTURBED had 15 to 18 songs ready to go, adding that the band doesn't like to waste time once it gets started. "I mean, we definitely go in there very prepared," he said. "We never enter the studio unless we feel like, right now, if these are the songs we record, that we would have an album that we're proud of and we're excited about. And we put everything under the microscope and examine it the best we can to make sure that we're prepared. We don't like going in there wasting time. We go in there to work, and to try to make the best album we can."

Meanwhile, the band has set March 23 as the release date for the 10th anniversary edition of its debut album, "The Sickness". The set, which will also be available on vinyl, will feature B-sides, new artwork, and exclusive online content.

Around the same time, the group will re-launch its website with a special section, accessible only by a code included with new copies of "The Sickness", that will feature clips of the quartet in the studio recording their new album.


GODSMACK Officially Names New Album 'The Oracle'
According to The Pulse of Radio, GODSMACK has officially named its new album "The Oracle", after initially calling the project "Saints & Sinners". Footage of the band working in the studio, along with frontman Sully Erna discussing the title change and some of the new material, has been posted online and can be viewed below. The group's fifth studio effort follows up 2006's "IV" and a nearly two-year hiatus that ended last summer when GODSMACK joined the Crüe Fest 2 tour.

Sully Erna told The Pulse of Radio that following their hiatus, GODSMACK intends to keep working straight through the next decade. "We grinded pretty hard for 10 years and we took a strict year off," he said. "I mean literally, when we pulled the plug on the tour, we said, don't call me, I'll call you. And then, you know, the following year, we started writing the new record. So we decided that since we pretty much have had two years off, we are now gonna get back into it for the next 10 years again and really grind hard."

A single called "Crying Like A Bitch" will head to rock radio later this month.

Other new songs include "War & Peace", "Devil's Swing" and "Whiskey Hangover", which the band issued as a single last summer.

A release date has yet to be announced for "The Oracle".


Michael Jackson Doctor Charged With Involuntary Manslaughter Over singer's death...

Michael Jackson’s doctor has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in connection with the singer’s death. Dr Conrad Murray, who is due to appear in court later, faces up to four years in prison if convicted.

The Associated Press news agency quotes the physician’s lawyer as saying he will plead not guilty.

Jackson died in Los Angeles on June 25, aged 50. An autopsy ruled his death as homicide "due to lethal levels of propofol".

Dr Murray told police he had been administering the drug to help the singer sleep, according to an affidavit.

But he has denied any criminal wrongdoing.

Dr Murray had been hired as the singer’s personal physician ahead of his ill-fated comeback gigs in London.
