The 2012 Grammy Awards finally arrived Sunday night, and while classic rockers weren’t up for many awards on the big night, they were well represented onstage. Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and the Beach Boys all turned in top-shelf performances.
Paul McCartney hasn’t won over many people with the title of his latest album, ‘Kisses on the Bottom’ — especially not Brad Paisley. The country superstar went so far as to take to his Twitter account on Wednesday to send out a series of screeds against the name. “It’s only February, but Sir Paul is an absolute lock for worst album title of the year,” he wrote in one note. “Actually, maybe all time.”
Former Mountain guitarist Leslie West heroically rolled onto the stage of New York’s BB King Blues Club Tuesday night (Jan. 31) to perform in public for the first time since he was forced to have his lower right leg amputated as a result of diabetes complications.
When Bruce Springsteen was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility in 1999, he entered as a solo artist and without any members of his long-running backing cohorts, the E Street Band. It wasn’t really considered much of a slight at the time — the Boss, after all, certainly deserves to be in there on his own.
But more than a dozen of years have now passed without the band joining the hallowed and frequently controversial Hall, and some fans are beginning to wonder if they’ll ever make it — and if Bruce should’ve turned down the honor until E Street was at his side.
Neil Young currently is streaming a 38-minute audio collage of music on his official website, although when the recordings are from, who plays on them or what they are called is not clear. The music includes a long-running instrumental jam and an alternate take on the Young and Crazy Horse classic, ‘Cortez the Killer.’
Lynyrd Skynyrd have signed on host and curate the 2012 Simple Man Cruise, a floating rock ‘n’ roll party set for Oct. 27-31 on Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest luxury liner, the Pearl. The cruise, which sets sail from Miami, will feature about a dozen different bands rocking the ship, including Skynyrd, the Doobie Brothers and up-and-coming Southern rockers like Blackberry Smoke and the Dirty Guv’nahs.
Birthday wishes have been pouring in all over the Internet for Paul Stanley today (Jan. 20), on what is the Kiss frontman’s 60th birthday. His bandmates took to KissOnline.com to help celebrate the big day with posts for their fellow Kiss member and friend, who was born in New York on Jan. 20, 1962.
teven Tyler joined Alice Cooper and his stellar backing band onstage Saturday night (Dec. 31) to perform the Beatles classic ‘Come Together’ during a New Year’s Eve concert at Mala Wailea, a famous oceanfront restaurant at the Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, in Wailea, Hawaii.
Far out, man! The Grateful Dead have announced plans for an interactive video game titled ‘The Epic Tour’ that’s based on the real-life experience of following the Dead on the road. The preparatory stage ”Phase One” of the game has just launched, with full-on game play set to begin in April 2012.
