New U2 By November

Bono of U2. Classic Rock's theory driven philosopher. Has broken the code. The band will have a new collection of songs by November. Getting to this point comes with a purpose. Great has been recovered. A new U2 album plus more festival appearances before the release. I know of a possible ITunes Festival in September. What about The Heart Radio Music Festival in Vegas? I'll keep you posted...

ZZ Top Tour Takes A Brief Left At The Rest Area

ZZ Top has been tapped to step off the tour bus. The Texas Rocker's won't be hitting Asheville next Wednesday night. Knowing all things medical should be taken seriously. But do you remember the day when the thunder makers of arenas were forced into timeout because of addiction, love lost and behind the scenes fighting? It shaped the giants of show business. Turning them into comic book super heroes. Well...the times. They are a changin. Ticket Taker's demanding to see their favorite bands live on stage have to put up with the process of age. Bassist Dusty Hill has kidney stones. Which...rumor has it can easily be cured by hops and barley processed into liquid perfection.

Johnny Depp Back Up On Stage With Aerosmith

Has Johnny Depp joined the ranks of Aerosmith? First the recording studio. Now live on stage banging out riffs with Joe Perry like he's a part of the project since day one. I say "Project" because Joe's solo album Music From Another Dimension rips the wizard right out from the curtain. Exposing the true reason why he went to Hollywood. It was to be a Classic Rocker not an actor. Aerosmith's producer Jack Douglas would love to work more with Mr. Depp. Aerosmith’s summer tour with Slash pulls into Atlanta on August 28th.

Weird Al Yankovic Returns With Mandatory Fun

Within the wisdom of Classic Rock. Weird Al Yankovic may not be a master of lengthy drum solos and Fender riffs. But through the years he's weirded up the lyrics of your all time favorite band mates. The king of song parodies is back. With a new collection of vibrations he calls: Mandatory Fun The album features several inspired originals. That incidentally have a Classic Rock edge ("Lame Claim to Fame," "Sports Song," "My Own Eyes," "Mission Statement," "First World Problems" and "Jackson Park Express") along with Al's latest accordion-fueled medley, "NOW That's What I Call Polka!"
