As the release date gets closer for the 20th-anniversary editions of Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind,’ some of the album’s key figures have been sharing their memories about the sessions and the band’s frontman, Kurt Cobain.
A rumor has been circulating for months that the band intends to break up following its 2011 tour. And in recent interviews, guitarist Tomo Milicevic and singer Jared Leto have only added to the uncertainty of the group’s future instead of clearing things up.
From the outside, it would appear as though the last few years have been relatively quiet for Evanescence. But a lot has happened in the life of leader and big-voiced singer Amy Lee during that time.
Starting around 2007, she pursued some personal growth — or as she puts it, made a conscious effort to “find myself as an adult.” And in the process, Lee also expanded her musical horizons by learning the harp, which she plays on Evanescence’s new self-titled third album, which arrives Oct. 11.
Patience is a virtue, especially for Jane’s Addiction fans. After all, the band has released only four studio albums since its self-titled debut dropped in 1987, and it’s been eight years since the last one, ‘Strays.’
Well, the Jane’s faithful will have to wait a little bit longer than originally planned for the arrival of ‘The Great Escape Artist.’ Originally scheduled for a Sept. 27 release, the new album is now due Oct. 4.
Lyricist Jerry Leiber, who with composer and longtime collaborator Mike Stoller wrote songs recorded by Elvis Presley, The Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Norah Jones and many others, died Monday in Los Angeles.
Leiber, 78, had been battling cardiopulmonary disease.
Pearl Jam opened its extensive video vaults for ‘Pearl Jam Twenty,’ and the band has done the same with its audio collection for the documentary’s soundtrack.
Not only will it contain 14 concert, TV and radio performances that are connected with the forthcoming film, the ‘Pearl Jam Twenty’ soundtrack also comes with a second disc of demos and other live recordings that covers PJ’s two decade history.
Last year, Bono‘s emergency back surgery in Germany had the U2 fan base worried about his welfare.
There was an entirely different kind of concern for Bono over the weekend, when reports circulated that he was treated for chest pains last week at a hospital in Monaco. U2 fans can rest easy, though: It was just a routine checkup, according to a spokeswoman for the 51-year-old singer.
Move over, Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Nelly: the Beastie Boys have also been immortalized as commercially available action figures. And, in a rather superhero-like gesture, Mike “Mike D” Diamond, Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz and Adam “MCA” Yauch are donating the proceeds from sales of their limited-edition figures to charity.
