  • The Who?

    In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Roger Daltrey says that while he is heading out on a solo tour this summer, he'd prefer it was a Who trek. However, "Pete [Townshend] is having terrible hearing problems at the moment. I've also had a voice scare. There's nobody I'd rather be on stage with than Pete. But equally, I don't want to be on stage with him destroying the last bit of his hearing. That would be completely foolish. He's a composer." Daltrey added that despite his differences over the years with Townshend, "behind the scenes we're the best of friends. We're like brothers. Not to say we get on with each other all the time, but if we were ever in trouble, you know that we'd both be there for each other. That's all that matters."

  • U2 to release delux editions

    U2 will release deluxe editions of their seminal '90s albums Achtung Baby and Zooropa. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, manager Paul McGuinness says, "There will be multiple formats. If you pile a lot of extra material and packaging and design work into a super-duper box set, there are people who will pay quite a lot for it, so you can budget it at a very high level and pump up the value." The re-issues are expected out in the fall, along with a larger box set of the band's "ZOO TV" era.

  • Monopoly anyone? How about an AC/DC & Metallica version?

    The makers of Monopoly are upping their Rock & Roll cred with two new editions of the game featuring AC/DC and Metallica. The AC/DC Collector’s Edition Monopoly board game is tentatively due in August, and players will buy, sell and trade AC/DC albums and international locations. The tokens will include a cannon ("For Those About To Rock"), a bundle of dynamite ("T.N.T.") and Angus Young’s school boy hat. Meanwhile, the Metallica Collector's Edition will allow players to "Pass Go" through historic Metallica events and locations around the board such as club shows, festivals, studios, childhood homes and other metal landmarks. Game pieces include the Kill 'Em All hammer, ...And Justice For All scales, St. Anger fist and the "Black Album" snake.

  • Pink Floyd fans!! Here ya go

    As previously reported, the Pink Floyd catalog is getting a massive overhaul and reissue campaign from EMI that will begin on September 26, encompassing CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, digital formats, viral marketing, iPhone Apps and more. Drummer Nick Mason says a "mellowing with old age" is what caused he and bandmates David Gilmour and Roger Waters to warm up to the idea of the catalog overhaul. "It is a sea change from our point of view," Mason told Billboard.com. "We'd never put much thought into the idea of releasing incomplete or earlier versions of things, but I think the world has changed. One now looks at these things and realizes there really is interest and how things came about and what the early versions were and so on. We thought rather than just leave everything in the vaults, it might be worth bringing everything out and giving people a complete view of what we've done." Of course, the reissue campaign brings many questions of a full Pink Floyd reunion tour, and Mason said there are no plans for it, but he will never say never. "The long and short of it is, I live in hope. I'd love to actually do something together again," he explained. "All of us are open to invitations to do things; the only thing that would drive it would be some sense that... there's some particularly good reason to do it together rather than separately. Perhaps we're getting a bit older and more appreciative of just how much it can mean to our fanbase to see us together. I think we just have to wait and see."

  • Clarence "The Big Man" Clemons passes

  • E Street Band sax man Clarence Clemons suffered a stroke on Sunday ....

    E Street Band sax man Clarence Clemons suffered a stroke on Sunday at his home in Florida. The 69 year-old "Big Man" reportedly underwent two brain surgeries, according to Bruce Springsteen fansite Backstreets. A friend of Clemons also told Backstreets that he had been paralyzed on the left side of his body, but is now able to squeeze with his left hand.

    Bob Seger will wrap up his current tour this weekend, and he is mulling returning to the road in the fall because "there are so many places we didn't play." "I must admit we are kind of glancing at the fall," Seger told Billboard.com. "We didn't play anywhere in Pennsylvania, Virginia, South Carolina, Florida, Kentucky... I could go on and on. There were states we never even got to... And it's going so well and everybody is so positive on it, we are considering maybe two months, like late October to late December, just before Christmas." Meanwhile, after this tour wraps, he will take "about a month" off before getting back to work on a new album. The album will include his latest single, a cover of Tom Waits' "Downtown Train," though no title or release date have been set.

Re:(disc)overed features 11 songs that Puddle of Mudd recorded with producer Bill Appleberry at the Bomb Shelter in Los Angeles, a studio owned by Stone Temple Pilots drummer Eric Kretz. A cover of the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter" will be the first single, and it will be serviced to radio in mid-June. The album also includes renditions of Free's "All Right Now," Bad Company's "Shooting Star," Neil Young's "Old Man," Led Zeppelin's "D'yer M'ker" and Elton John's "Rocket Man." "Since we started we've been non-stop -- make a record, go on tour, then right into rehearsals and the next record, then back on tour," guitarist Paul Phillip told Billboard.com. "We were really burned out, and when we started trying to write again it just wasn't time yet. And 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."
