Jon Bon Jovi Claims Rock Hall Mission To Snub Band

(Classic Rock) Jon Bon Jovi claims he's being kept out of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame by a "personal mission," after he fell out with two members of the board.

The band have been eligible for entry since 2009, and the frontman believes they tick all the boxes necessary for induction. The nominations for the class of 2017 include Pearl Jam, Journey, Bad Brains, ELO, Yes and Jane's Addiction - along with Chaka Khan, Janet Jackson and Tupac Shakur.

Bon Jovi tells The Howard Stern Show: "There's guys on that thing that have made it their personal mission to f*** with me. And that's okay. I get it - I've sold more records than their artists."

Without naming names, he continues: "I called him a few choice words, and I'm never shy, when I see him, to call him a few more choice words. The criteria is that your music had an influence on generations that came after you, and that it's still out and very present. We have every criteria."

Asked who would argue against the band's induction, Bon Jovi replies: "These two f***ers in the room." Read more here.

Lit Return With New Country Music Song 'Fast'

(Radio.com) Orange County, California band Lit have a long history of shifting music genres from their early days packing clubs with heavy rock to finding mainstream success with the alt-rock tinged power-pop of their major label debut. The band has once shifted stylistically with the release of a new country music song. Radio.com has the following details:

Lit is a band best known for their late 90's singles "Miserable," and "My Own Worst Enemy." The rockers have decided to explore country roots, as is illustrated by their latest music video "Fast," which premiered on CMT.

Like Darius Rucker and Steven Tyler before them, Lit has been working on new music in Nashville, Tennessee and it appears that the town has helped shape their new sound.

They shared their music video for their new single "Fast" yesterday (Oct. 25). In it, the guys don flannel shirts and perform the song on acoustic guitars in a rustic setting complete with longhorn skulls. "Fast" is all about growing up and how quickly life moves. Scenes fitting that trope intercut between the band's performance: A pregnant couple revels in their baby, a child reaches a new height and a couple ages on a porch.

Things take a melancholy turn at the end when death rears its head and things are over far too quickly, but the band's chorus sticks to a hopeful, if religious, note about faith, family and love. Check out their new direction here.

Phil Collins Performs 'In the Air Tonight' On Tonight Show

(Radio.com) Phil Collins may have undergone surgery on his right foot and suffered an injury to his drumming hand, but he sounded as strong as ever as he delivered his '80s hit 'In the Air Tonight" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The British singer usually plays the iconic drum fill, but he got some help from Questlove and The Roots for the performance. Host Jimmy Fallon could barely contain his excitement, saying 'YES! YES!" after the performance.

The Hall of Fame member will play nine shows in June 2017 and has just released an autobiography and a compilation record The Singles. Watch the Tonight Show performance here.

Kid Cudi's Manager Slams Drake Over Alleged Diss Track

(Radio.com) Kid Cudi may not be able to respond to Drake's recent disses because he's in an rehab facility, but his manager isn't sitting idly by and letting Drake get off verbal shot after verbal shot.

After Drake commented on the recent diss he was thought to be aiming at Cudi on his new track "Two Birds One Stone," Cudi's manager Dennis Cummings had a few things to say on Twitter.

"Drake corny as f—," he tweeted, followed closely by "How Aubrey and his writers take a shot with the same hands they used to beg for a feature???"

The second tweet not only continues Cudi's earlier accusations that Drake uses ghostwriters to help write his raps, but also suggests that Drake reached out to Cudi for a feature on one of those tracks. Read more here.

Virtual Reality ABBA Coming

(Radio.com) Thanks to entertainment entrepreneur Simon Fuller, ABBA is on board for a "virtual reality experience" that promises to be unlike anything music fans have seen before.

"I was imagining who would be my very first choice to work with on an extraordinary new virtual reality experience to capture the world's imagination," Fuller told Billboard. 'In a second, I thought it simply has to be ABBA. I approached them directly and thankfully they all fell in love with the idea and now that idea is fast becoming a reality."

Benny Andersson (the second "B" in "ABBA"), who spoke for the group, called the project a "time machine." 'We're inspired by the limitless possibilities of what the future holds and are loving being a part of creating something new and dramatic here--a time machine that captures the essence of who we were. And are," he said. Read more here.

Katy Perry Shades Taylor Swift at Kanye West Concert

(Radio.com) Katy Perry and Taylor Swift both attended Drake's 30th birthday party on Sunday (Oct. 23) without incident, but if fans thought that signaled an end to the feud between the two pop stars, think again.

Perry attended Kanye West's show in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (Oct. 25) for her 32nd birthday, and she took a moment to Snap herself dancing along to a certain "Famous" lyric. You know the one.

A Katy Perry fan account captured her Snapchat and shared it on Twitter. In the video, Perry sways from side-to-side while West can be heard leading up to the infamous "Famous" lyric about Swift.

Tom Hanks Recreates Rap From 'Big'

(Radio.com) After hosting one of Saturday Night Live's more successful episodes this season on Saturday (Oct. 22), Tom Hanks shows he's still got the rap skills he originally displayed in the 1988 movie Big.

Wong Fu Productions interviewed Hanks while he was promoting his movie Inferno in Florence, Italy, and exceedingly bold hosts Wesley Chan and Philip Wang asked Hanks to recreate the rap he performed with his best friend in that movie. Surprisingly (not surprisingly?) Hanks knew the verses word for word and recreated the originally hand motions he did along with it in the film.

After 28 years, it's pretty impressive to see Hanks jump into character like that and recreate the moment so many fans remember. Ron Howard was also part of the interview, and even he couldn't believe Hanks' skill. "Oh my god!" he exclaimed after all was said and done. Watch it here.

Lady Gaga Appears On 'Carpool Karaoke'

(Radio.com) By Tuesday evening, Lady Gaga fans knew the pop star was going to be joining James Corden for The Late Late Show segment "Carpool Karaoke."

But viewers got a bigger treat than they expected when the pop star showed up at the show's opening as 'Lady Haha" and delivered the opening monologue.

Acting as though he had to rush to his gig, Corden arrived on stage half-dressed and invited the singer to join the band to sing "A-Yo" from her new album Joanne.

Then it was time for Carpool Karaoke. The duo kicked it off with Ludacris' famous lyrics, "Move b—-, Get out of the way" ("Move B—- Get Out Da Way"), then they did some not-so-choreographed dancing to "Perfect Illusion" and "Bad Romance" before Gaga took the wheel. Watch it here.
