Steven Adler Jams UYI Songs With Guns N' Roses Cover Band

(Classic Rock) Former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler has performed a number of songs from the band's Use Your Illusion albums live. Answering critics who he says accuse him of not being able to play tracks from the 1991 albums Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II, Alder tells Mitch Lafon (via LA Weekly): "For all the people that don't think I'm capable of playing songs off of Use You Illusion, here you go. Thank you for your concerns."

His comments relate to video footage of him performing a full set of GNR tracks with a tribute band called Son Of A Gun at The Roxy Live club in Buenos Aires following the band's gig in the Argentinean capital last month.

The setlist included covers of GNR's Use Your Illusion tracks Back Off Bitch, Knockin' On Heaven's Door and You Could Be Mine. They also played other GNR classics on the night. Footage of Adler's performance can be viewed here.

Queen Classic Given Classical Makeover

(Classic Rock) Queen track The Show Must Go On has been given a classical makeover by Croatian duo 2Cellos. Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser have also issued a video for the song which originally appeared on Queen's 1991 record Innuendo - the band's final studio album released in frontman Freddie Mercury's lifetime.

He died later that year from bronchial pneumonia resulting from AIDS. The pair say: "For the first time, we worked on a Queen song. We did it to celebrate one of the greatest artists ever - Freddie, we've been missing you for 25 years."

In 2014, 2Cellos mixed Iron Maiden's The Trooper with the William Tell Overture and also revamped AC/DC's Thunderstruck. They've also covered tracks from other artists including U2 and Nine Inch Nails on previous albums. Watch the video here.

Grace VanderWaal Streams New Song 'Clay'

(Radio.com) After stealing America's hearts, winning season 11 of America's Got Talent and releasing her own EP Perfectly Imperfect, Grace returns with the lyric video for her empowering single "Clay."

VanderWaal originally debuted the song for her finale performance on America's Got Talent. Although she hasn't aligned with any anti-bullying campaigns or coalitions, the message seems a necessary reminder for anyone who has faced that issue.

On the chorus, VanderWaal sings, "Cause you don't hurt me/ I won't mold to your silly words/ I won't live inside your world/ Cuz your punches and your names/ All your jokes and stupid games/ They don't work, no they don't hurt/ Watch them just go right through me/ Because they mean nothing to me."

The lyric video is, appropriately enough, stop animation with a piece of clay at the center. The sorbet-colored clay morphs and molds into different pretty shapes until it eventually reveals VanderWaal, who rises above the mass. It's a pastel colored look at strength. Check out the new song here.

The Lumineers Release Their Cover Of 'Blue Christmas'

(Radio.com) After performing a cover of "Blue Christmas," a holiday song made famous by Elvis Presley, last week (December 1st) at the National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony, The Lumineers have released that track to stream.
Fans of the indie band will appreciate their low key take on Presley's hit. Wesley Schultz's mournful vocals reverberate in The Lumineers' version until Neyla Pekarek joins him, adding harmonies to make the already melancholy song even more somber.

The band keeps the instrumentation stripped down to the essentials, so the lyrics maintain their impact. "Blue Christmas" is available on iTunes, Spotify and more. Listen here.

Keith Urban Honors First Responders At New Zealand Concert

(Radio.com) Even though Keith Urban was born in Australia, he has yet to perform in nearby New Zealand, but that changed on Saturday (December 3rd) when his Ripcord Tour performed in Wellington.

And to make the show more special, Urban offered some of the country's first responders a chance to attend for free. The country experienced a powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake near the town of Kaikoura on November 14th. It devastated towns and left several thousand homeless (via New Zealand Herald News). When Urban heard about the disaster, he used his own money to purchase several blocks of tickets for those who responded and helped out.

"We cannot forget the incredible work of our first responders at the local Civil Defense, Emergency Services and Defense Force," said Urban in a press release. " Read more here.

Rick Ross Releases 'Buy Back the Block' Video

(Radio.com) Rick Ross has released a new music video for the track "Buy Back the Block" featuring 2 Chainz and Gucci Mane. The video is more like a short film at over eight minutes long.

In the opening scene, Ross and Gucci wash cars at a local business where they're both employees, but they get to talking about buying back the block to really start turning a profit and help their community. "If we buy the car wash, we might as well buy the gas station," Ross tells his colleague. Gucci responds, "You know what? We need to buy the block."

The video switches to scenes of a rough neighborhood that has fallen prey to hard times because crime has replaced viable businesses. Ross, Gucci and 2 Chainz stand outside convenience stores and apartment complexes to rap about their plans to transform the block by focusing on property investments.

"Buy Back the Block" marks the first single off Ross' forthcoming ninth album Rather You Than Me, which arrives in early 2017. Watch the explicit eight minute video here.

Train Announce New Album 'a girl a bottle a boat'

(Radio.com) Train will be returning in 2017 with a new album entitled
a girl a bottle a boat." It marks the band's first new original music since their 2014 album Bulletproof Picasso.

Train already shared the album's first single, "Play That Song," which borrows the central melody from the 1938 single "Heart and Soul" by Howard Hoagland "Hoagy" Carmichael.

Train's frontman, Pat Monahan, said about their new album, "Every album I've ever been a part of writing has had a fair amount of difficulty. Wanting to touch people's lives is a daunting task but when it happens it makes all of the blood sweat and tears worth it. a girl a bottle a boat has been the most fun and fulfilling I think of all of the Train albums."

Brett Eldredge Talks His Christmas Album 'Glow'

(Radio.com) "I've been waiting to record a Christmas album since I was a little kid," Brett Eldredge revealed to Radio.com. But his album, Glow, is notably different from any other country artist's holiday album, mostly because of his love for crooners like Frank Sinatra.

"I wanted to do it one way, the big band classic way," he says. "I recorded Glow in New York City, and I spent a whole week of just living in New York and living that music, working with a thirty piece orchestra. Fine whiskey in a glass and wearing a suit, decorating the room with lights, it was magic."

The album features a duet with Nashville songwriter turned pop star Meghan Trainor on "Baby It's Cold Outside." "Meghan Trainor is an extremely soulful person. She's so much fun to be around and so much fun to watch. We had a history. We were in People's "One To Watch" party in LA, and we didn't know anybody there. It was all people in Game of Thrones and movies and she and I were like 'OK, What do we do?' We really hit it off and the next thing you know [I'm saying] 'I would love to have you on this song.' And she jumped right on board." Read more here.

Nickelback Won't Be Used As Drunk Driving Punishment After All

(TeamRock) The Canadian police officer who made a joke about Nickelback in an attempt to draw attention to an anti drink-drive campaign has said sorry to the band.

Constable Rob Hartlen last week published a post on the Kensington Police Service Facebook page, making a light-hearted threat that anyone arrested for DUI would be made to listen to Nickelback on their way to jail.

It's been reported by TMZ that the band contacted the cops and asked for the post to be removed. But the officer has said that the decision to delete was taken after he made contact with the band to apologies - and that he discovered they share strong feelings about drink-drivers.

As a result, a new DUI initiative is to be created, inspired by his conversation with Nickelback. Hartlen has posted a detailed apology, describing his own actions as a form of bullying and asserting that he should have known better. He says: "At the time I thought this was a great idea, all pure intentions. As we have seen, our little post became an international story.

"Somewhere in the noise the message 'Don't drink and drive' was overshadowed by negativity towards the band. The more successful the post became, the less the message was mentioned and the fact we love or love to hate Nickelback took centre stage." Read more here.

Foo Fighters Resisted Dave Grohl's 'Crazy' Idea

(Classic Rock) Taylor Hawkins has admitted that the Foo Fighters thought frontman Dave Grohl was crazy when he said he'd perform shows while recovering from a broken leg.

He suffered the injury after falling off stage in June 2015, leading to the cancellation of a handful of concerts before Grohl returned to action with the help of a custom-made throne.

The idea for the contraption came to the bandleader in a drugged-up dream, and was built with the help of a roadie. It later became part of the Guns N' Roses reunion shows this year after Axl Rose broke his foot.

Drummer Hawkins tells the NME: "It was a bummer all round. Dave almost pulverised his entire f***ing leg. Missing Glastonbury was part of that bummer.

"We were excited to get out there, do our march through Wembley then Glastonbury headlining. We were set to pop - then Dave breaking his leg was a kick in the nuts.

"But like Dave said, 'We wlll go on, even if I have to sit in this throne I have in my mind. We were all like, 'That's crazy! It's crazy to think anyone's going to want to see you sitting in a throne.' And we did - and they were some of the best shows we ever played." Read more here.

Melvins Put Their Own Spin On Classic Christmas Song

(Classic Rock) The Melvins have put their own unique spin on the classic Christmas song "Carol Of The Bells" for Amazon Prime's exclusive compilation, Indie for the Holidays.

"The song has scared us since we were children," Melvins King Buzzo told Stereogum. "That's why we wanted to do it." Carol Of The Bells may sound like the tough matriarch from that family a few streets away, but it's actually the title of a song which will ramp up your anxiety levels during what some optimists have described as the 'most wonderful time of the year'.

The four-note folk tune, based on a Ukrainian chant called Shchedryk (translation: bountiful), was written by Mykola Leontovych and Peter J. Wilhousky. It wasn't originally a Christmas carol, but a song about a bird wishing prosperity on a family home. Only in later years did it mutate into this festive banger you'll hear significantly more times than the mantra of the flatulent: 'pass the sprouts'. Check it out here.

Them Are Us Too's Cash Askew Killed In Oakland Warehouse Fire

(Radio.com) The Oakland warehouse fire from December 2 has shocked the California city's artistic community and stunned the public as the death toll climbs and more grim details surface about what happened.

Among the victims is Cash Askew, a founder of Them Are Us Too, a dream-pop band signed to the independent Dais Records label. The company confirmed her death in a statement.

The project are called Powerflow, with Wolbers reporting they have 14 tracks - and hinted that they could hit the road with Prophets Of Rage in 2017.

"He's going to put it out if he is able to establish some tours and some work. It's called Powerflow. It's Sen Dog, Rogelio Lozano from Downset, Billy Graziadei from Biohazard, myself and Fernando Schaefer, who is a drummer in Worst - a Brazilian band." Read more here.

Kanye West, French Montana and Cam'ron Release New TRack

(Radio.com) Kanye West is still working on new music even if he has canceled the remaining dates of his Saint Pablo Tour. Just a few days after being released from the hospital, a new track titled "A- Shots" featuring French Montana and Cam'ron has made it's way onto the internet.

The laid back track features a heavily auto-tuned West who offers up big brag after big brag. Although he doesn't mention his wife Kim Kardashian's name in the track, West boasts that most women have to spend a lot of money to look as good as she does. The song's message is all about buying the perfect body if you're not born with one, and if you're not born with one then the three rappers are throwing some serious shade.

West last contributed (along with Nas) to French Montana's track "Figure It Out," and Montana returns the favor with a speedy, metered cadence for "A– Shots" while Cam'ron comes gruff and heavy with a slick verse. Listen to the explicit track here.

AFI Announce North American Blood Tour

(Radio.com) The same day AFI releases their forthcoming album AFI (The Blood Album), they'll launch the first part of their headlining 2017 North American tour, The Blood Tour.

AFI kicks things off in Los Angeles on January 20th, and they'll stay on the road for one month until they wrap things up in San Diego on February 20th. Every ticket comes with a free download of The Blood Album.

When it came to working on new music, the band wrote way more songs than they ended up included on their 14-track album. "Historically, we always write far beyond an album's worth of material," vocalist Davey Havok said about working together on The Blood Album.

"The process of culling down approximately 60 songs to fourteen is difficult. But when we create, we do so with an honesty and a hope to satisfy our artistic needs. We were raised on albums, which had far greater impact on us than singles alone. I believe that there are still a select group who look for that same deeper musical experience that we grew up on. Our records are for those music fans." Check out the full list of tour dates here.

Deadmau5 Once Feared That He Killed A Fan

(Radio.com) Deadmau5 sees a lot from his DJ booth. One thing he didn't foresee, though, was when a fan climbed six feet in the air to his booth during a performance. It's a moment that had the dance music artist convinced that he killed a fan.

In an interview with NME discussing his new album, W:/2016ALBUM/, Deadmau5 recalls kicking that fan to the ground and later fearing that he had paralyzed or killed him.

"So I'm playing live, up in the Cube [his booth]. I've got this LED helmet on, I'm six foot in the air, I can barely see," he said. "All of a sudden I hear my manager screaming in my earpiece, and I feel someone grabbing at my waist. This kid has somehow climbed up into the Cube."

Deadmau5 panicked and kicked back at the fan, and the fan fell six feet below. "He just drops and lands on his back - bang. And he's motionless," he said. "I take off my helmet and look down, and for what felt like a long time I'm like, 'I just paralyzed or killed that kid.' Then finally he bounces up and is all 'Wooo!' at the crowd. Never been so relieved in my life. Scary." Read more here.

Nico Segal Releases Paul Simon Remix 'Stranger'

(Radio.com) Even though it's only been a few months since Paul Simon released his most recent album Stranger to Stranger, he's already back with new music. Kind of. The Social Experiment's Nico Segal shared the shimmering track "Stranger," which combines and remixes Simon's songs "The Werewolf" and "The Clock" from Stranger to Stranger.

The new production feels closer to a Chance the Rapper track, and that could be because he's collaborated with The Social Experiment in the past. Segal teams up with fellow Social Experiment player Nate Fox to round out that interpretation.

"Stranger" does away with the bouncy rhythm and percussive effects of "The Werewolf" and instead builds out a melodic, wending, instrumental focus. Thanks to Segal's instrumentation, the trumpet on "Stranger" sounds closer to an echo and lends the remix a beautiful if haunting quality. Listen to "Stranger" here.

Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody Re-Imagined As A Violent Crime Drama

(Classic Rock) Someone's made a video in which the lyrics to Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody are literally reinterpreted as a crime drama. Queen's original Bohemian Rhapsody film is one of the earliest, most iconic clips of the video age. Based on the image of Queen that adorned the cover of their second album - a picture inspired by a photograph of Marlene Dietrich - the footage of the band's underlit faces has become some of the most recognizable in rock.

Another iconic use of the song comes in Waynes' World, as Wayne and Garth and friends headbang along to the song in the duo's Mirth Mobile, but what neither video does, however, is provide a literal representation of the song's lyrics. This has all changed with a new video from YouTube collective Corridor Digital, who've taken Freddie's original flights of lyrical fancy and turned them into a gritty crime drama that starts with a murder, continues with an emotional family confrontation, and climaxes with a dramatic stand-off with the police.

Perhaps disappointingly, the new video doesn't include the "So you think you can stop me and spit in my eye" section of the song. "Partially time constraints," says director Nico. "Only had a week to do everything for this video. But the other reason is that the lyrics become a lot less film friendly from there. Up to that point everything reads like an opera or play, but then it becomes a bit too song like to really keep it up."

Either way, the new video is intense. Check it out here.

Patti Smith To Play Bob Dylan Song At Nobel Prize Ceremony

(Radio.com) Due to an apparent scheduling conflict, Bob Dylan won't be attending the Nobel Ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden, but even if he won't be performing some of the songs that earned him the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature, the Committee still has plans to honor him with a musical tribute.

During the awards ceremony on December 10th, singer-songwriter Patti Smith will perform Dylan's song "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall" off his 1963 album The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan.

Unreleased Aaliyah Collaboration With Drake Goes Online

(Radio.com) A second track has surfaced featuring Drake and the late R&B star Aaliyah (full name Aaliyah Dana Houghton). "Talk is Cheap" is a slick, velvety song that pairs Aaliyah's angelic vocals with soft beats, sultry production and Drake's polished rapping.

The song comes more than four years after "Enough Said," which Drake released in 2012. That cut was meant to be part of a bigger project that would feature tracks Aaliyah recorded before she died in a plane crash in 2001. However, the project was nixed after Aaliyah's family refused to sign off on it.

Aaliyah's family has previously said that they have no knowledge of an upcoming album featuring Drake and Aaliyah. 'There is no official album being released and supported by the Haughton family, Aaliyah's brother Rashad Haughton told The Guardian. Read more here.

50 Cent Reaches $14.5 Million Settlement In Malpractice Case

(Radio.com) 50 Cent has reached a settlement in his legal malpractice suit against his former legal team and will be awarded $14.5 million. But the rapper likely won't see much of that money since he continues to battle bankruptcy and other debts.

Forbes reports that much of 50 Cent's settlement will go towards satisfying his $23 million bankruptcy settlement from July. In 2014, he was ordered to pay headphone makers Sleek Audio $16 million after he cut ties with the company, only to produce his own headphones.

The judge alleges that 50 used the company's trade secrets to launch his SMS audio company, which included a similar headphone design. 50 then filed a malpractice suit against Garvey Schubert Barer (GSB), the law firm who represented him against Sleek Audio, claiming the firm "didn't adequately represent his interests in licensing negotiations and arbitration disputes with Sleek Audio." That's the suit he just settled or $14.5 million. Read more here.

Prince Fans Pays Tribute With Christmas Light Show

(Radio.com) Even though Prince passed away in April, the tributes to him continue. One Minnesota family found a holiday-centric way to go about honoring the Purple One when they turned their annual Christmas lights display into a mini memorial.

The Staudt family, who live in Chaska, dedicated five minutes of their 14-minute Christmas display to Prince. During the tribute, the lights turn mostly purple and blink to "Purple Rain." There's even a special screen with a rotating Prince symbol featured.

Mike Staudt, the man behind the design, says he uses over 10,000 lights each year, and the family has already earned a great deal of attention from neighbors and passers-by (via Star Tribune).

On YouTube, Staudt wrote about his decision to honor Prince. "Our show is 5 minutes from Prince's Paisley Park recording studio and residence," he shared. "And his passing this year greatly affected our local community. So we decided to honor the great Purple One with a short and simple display during the intermission of our Christmas light show." Watch a clip of the tribute here.

'Transformers: The Last Knight' Trailer Features Eerie Flaming Lips Cover

(Radio.com) When the trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight debuted during Monday Night Football (Dec. 5) fans were immediately struck by two questions. Why is Optimus Prime fighting Bumble Bee and what is that eerie song playing throughout the two-minute trailer?
Narrated by Anthony Hopkins, the powerful trailer is set to a cover of The Flaming Lips 2002 song, "Do You Realize," as performed by 25 year-old British film director and composer, Frederick Lloyd (aka Ursine Vulpine). If the cover sounds vaguely familiar, it may be because it was also featured in the Penny Dreadful Season 3 trailer.

Specializing in atmospheric soundscapes, Lloyd's music has also been featured in theatrical trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Mad Max: Fury Road, Fantastic Four, Captain Phillips and Zero Dark Thirty to name a few, as well TV spots and teasers for films such as American Sniper, Serena and Creed.

Bruno Mars Thrills Fans At Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

(Radio.com) Bruno Mars thrilled during a big musical moment at the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Donning a luscious fur coat, Mars--backed by his Hooligans--took the stage.

"Where the Angels at?" he asked before beginning to sing "Chunky" off 24K Magic. The Angels used the song to show off an array of sleepwear, which allowed them to dance around while Mars followed suit.

Mars ended the night with an energetic, choreographed version of "24K Magic." The bling-happy song was the perfect fit for all the bejeweled bras sparkling under the runway's lights. Read more here.

Flo Rida Releases 'Zillionaire' Video

(Radio.com) Flo Rida's new music video "Zillionaire" imagines life in the future when the lotto soars past million, billion and trillion to reach that incredible number. Of course, people line up around the block just to purchase a potentially life-changing ticket.

After entering a convenience store, where he purchases two tickets–one for himself and one for supermodel Chanel Imam (who just so happens to be the clerk)–Flo Rida fantasizes about how he'd spend all that money if he were to win. He lives large with a camel, pro golf lessons and elaborate dinners, and all with his gorgeous new lady by his side.

The more he dreams, the more the convenience store becomes a party complete with glitter, dancers and even a brass band towards the end. That gets other people in line thinking about all the ways they'd spend a zillion dollars, and things quickly become hilarious. Their dreams range from flashy cars, bathtubs full of cash and poolside fun surrounded by beautiful women. Watch it here.
