  • Black Sabbath sat in w Metallica for their 30th anniversary show

    Metallica pulled out all the stops for their fourth and final 30th anniversary show at the Fillmore in San Francisco on Saturday night. In a move that was once thought impossible, the original lineup of James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Dave Mustaine and Ron McGovney played together for the first time since 1982. Mustaine joined Metallica on the final five songs of their set, all of which were drawn from his brief time with the band, including "Jump In The Fire," "Hit The Lights" and "Seek & Destroy." Moreover, Metallica brought out Ozzy Osbourne and Geezer Butler for a three-song Black Sabbath jam including "Sabbra Cadabra," "Iron Man" and "Paranoid." Bassist Jason Newsted also returned, as he had earlier in the week, for "King Nothing" and "Whiplash," and even producer Bob Rock was on hand for "Dirty Window" and "Frantic." Fans can download recordings of all the 30th anniversary shows at www.livemetallica.com Meanwhile, the band's special anniversary celebrations will continue this summer when their 2012 Summer European Vacation tour finds them playing "The Black Album" in its entirety to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its release.

  • Roger Daltrey and Robert Plant held a press conference in Los Angeles to announce the launch of the UCLA Daltrey/Townshend Teen & Young Adult Cancer Program

    Roger Daltrey and Robert Plant held a press conference in Los Angeles to announce the launch of the UCLA Daltrey/Townshend Teen & Young Adult Cancer Program. The program hopes to change a medical culture that categorizes patients as either adults or children, with few special considerations for teens. The announcement follows more than a decade of support by The Who and other musicians for England's Teenage Cancer Trust, which has established 19 cancer units for teenagers across the U.K. The U.S. version will be housed at UCLA Medical Center and will treat teens separately from young children and adults to focus on special concerns for teens who have cancer. Pete Townshend was not at the press conference because of an expired visa that kept him in England, but he sent a videotaped statement saying: "Let's hope in the USA it can catch fire the way it did here, because it does save lives."
