(TeamRock Radio) Powerman 5000 suffered from smoke inhalation after a blaze broke out in frontman Spider One's hotel room when an air conditioning unit began "shooting out flames."
The band were relaxing before a planned gig in Marietta, Georgia, USA at the weekend when the fire broke out and led to the Radisson hotel being evacuated.
That night's gig went ahead and the band say the rest of their US tour will not be affected. Guitarist Nick Quijano says, "We checked into our rooms to relax before our show at 120 Tavern and Spider One went to turn off his air conditioner unit in his room when an electrical fire broke out within the unit, shooting large flames across the room and filling the entire 10th floor with smoke.
"To make matters worse, the alarm and sprinkler system in the hotel was defective and didn't go off to warn anyone in the hotel of the fire." Read more here.

(TeamRock Radio) Pink Floyd's final album The Endless River has set another online record, after becoming the most pre-ordered title in the history of Amazon in the UK. Streaming firm Spotify have revealed that the track Allons-y (1) is the most viral in the history of their service.
And they've commented on the "remarkably young" audience who have included Floyd on over three million playlists to date. Spotify say: "The band has never been more popular with us - which is saying a lot, because fans unlocked their entire catalogue by listening to Wish You Were Here over a million times on a single weekend.
"Who's doing all this listening and sharing? We found that Floyd skews remarkably young globally, with over 60% of its audience under 35, its strongest listening among 18-22 year-olds, and 80% of its playlisters under 34. Pink Floyd appears to be reaching a really young crowd through Spotify."

(Radio.com) How would you react if you got a private concert with one of the most prestigious stars in popular music history? That's a question you'll have to ask Fredrik Wilkingsson. Or ask Bob Dylan to gauge the superfan's reaction.
Dylan played a short set Sunday (Nov. 23) in Philadelphia at Philadelphia's Academy of Music, Rolling Stone reports. And he had only one audience member: Wilkingsson was there as part of Experiment Ensam, which translates to Experiment Alone, a Swedish film series and experimental project that allows people to experience things that are generally witnessed by larger audiences, rather than a singular person.
Dylan and his touring band reportedly played four songs: covers of Fats Domino's "Blueberry Hill," Buddy Holly's "Heartbeat" and Chuck Willis' "It's Too Late (She's Gone)," plus a fourth blues song Wilkingsson could not identify. Read more here.

(Classic Rock) Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant has told of a moment he nearly refused to hire drummer John Bonham - because the 20 miles between their homes was too far.
The pair got together in Band Of Joy in 1967, before forming Led Zep with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones. But Plant says it might never have happened.
He tells Sound Opinions: "I was playing once at a ballroom once and he came up and said, 'You're alright, but you'd be a lot better if I was your drummer.' I said, 'So you already understand that I'm in charge?'
"I said, 'Where do you live?' He said, 'Well, I live in Redditch.' I said, 'That's 20 miles from where I live - that's too far. You're not good enough.'
"But we stole a little bit, nicked stuff from people when we weren't looking, put the gas in the vehicles and off we went.'" Read more here.

(TeamRock Radio) The music of death metal heroes Carcass and Goatwhore reached a whole new audience when it appeared on an episode of hit TV series Elementary. The show stars Jonny Lee Miller as detective Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr Joan Watson in a US take on the BBS series Sherlock.
In a scene from the latest season three episode to be broadcast on CBS, Holmes plays a song from each band in an office and he and Watson try to crack a case that is giving the New York Police Department some trouble.
The scene also name checks late Death frontman Chuck Schuldiner. Holmes recounts online postings from a user calling himself "Schuldiner." Meanwhile, Glenn Danzig says one of his new songs will appear on the next volume of the soundtrack for zombie TV series The Walking Dead. Read more here.

(TeamRock Radio) Joe Satriani admits he's partly to blame for the scheduling issues preventing Chickenfoot from making a third album - but he hopes there's more studio work to come from the supergroup.
He's been wrapped up with a solo tour, while drummer Chad Smith has been working with his main band the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Meanwhile, singer Sammy Hagar and bassist Michael Anthony are working together in covers band The Circle with Jason Bonham.
Earlier this month Hagar said The Circle offered some advantages that Chickenfoot didn't, and added that he had no plans to record with his latest outfit.
Now Satriani tells Eddie Trunk: "Sam, Mike and Chad have other things to do. I come back from doing this stuff and I'm like, "let's go.' They're like, 'Well, hold on a minute,' then I'm off again. So I'm partly to blame because of my schedule."
But he adds: "I really want it to fly - I really want to put in as much time as I can get into the band. But it's a little different for the other guys, because they have history and they have current commitments." Read more here.

(TeamRock Radio) The Answer have confirmed the release of fifth album Raise A Little Hell, and an accompanying UK tour, for March next year. And guitarist Paul Mahon described the work as a "reboot" of the Northern Irish outfit, vowing that they "have the hunger back."
The follow-up to 2013's New Horizon will be launched on March 9 via Napalm Records. It was recorded in Madrid with producer Will Maya.
Mahon tells TeamRock: "Our third album, Revival, wasn't what people wanted from us. We paid a lot of attention to that and it set us on our way. On New Horizon we cleared the decks and the trauma of all the changes is behind us.
"We're a lot more confident now - we've taken a few side roads to get where we want to be, but we're here now and ready to deliver." Read more here.

(Gibson) Wanna get in on the ground floor of a feature film featuring Def Leppard's Joe Elliott, The Pixies' Joey Santiago, Ministry's Al Jorgensen and Sin Quirin, Ricky Warwick of Black Star Riders, Eddie Ojeda of Twisted Sister and more?
A crowdfunding drive has just kicked off to support the upcoming film The Bridge, and there are some unique perks available. The Bridge tells the story of a small town musical prodigy who must free himself from the shadows of his past to find the love, hope and friendship that could lead him to the musical expression he never thought possible. I reached out to Elliott for a few words about the project, and during a brief break in recording vocals for the new Def Leppard album, the vocalist was happy to talk.
"I was approached about two years ago," Elliott said. "Ricky Warwick, who's a very good friend of mine and is also going to be in the film, he's a solo artist in his own right and is fronting the Black Star Riders, formerly Thin Lizzy. He phoned me up and he said 'You want to do a movie?' And why not, y'know? Should be a bit of a laugh. So he introduced me to [writer/director] Bobby Field. I've done a little bit of this kind of stuff in the past but overly spectacular, nothing overly known and nothing overly good, to be fair! This is a totally different vehicle. It's musicians acting as musicians, so the one thing we can all bring to the table is a certain kind of realism to it." here.

(Classic Rock) L.A. Guns have announced they will release a live album recorded in Boston in 1989. The show was captured during what was arguably the group's heyday.

The new album will include liner notes written by the band's frontman Phil Lewis. The record is available from December 8 in CD and digital formats. Read more here.

(Classic Rock) Scott Ian reveals in an interview on Nikki Sixx's radio show Sixx Sense the moment his dad stopped his mum from trying to kill herself - and revealed that he only found out while working on his book.
The incident took place when the Anthrax guitarist, now 50, was 11 years old. It was discovered when his co-author John Wiederhorn interviewed his family for I'm The Man: The Story Of That Guy From Anthrax.
Ian tells Sixx Sense: "My dad had to stop my mother from jumping out of a moving car. He knocked her out - he punched her in the face, knocked her out and drove her her to the emergency room. I just learned that three months ago."
He admits his first reaction was to be "a little pissed off at his mother" but continues: "She was going through a hell of a time. My parents had split up, my mum's mum had died. I was like, 'Really? She wanted to do that and not be there for my brother and I?' But I got past that pretty quick. My mum's 77 and she's doing fine, so I'm not going to be mad at her for 1975." Read more here.

(Classic Rock) Exodus drummer Tom Hunting says he regrets the "impasse" which led to Rob Dukes being sacked this year. The band got rid of Dukes to make way for Steve 'Zetro' Souza's third stint, but Hunting says he is proud of everything they recorded with Dukes.
Exodus thanked Dukes in the credits for new album Blood In Blood Out - and also mentioned former guitarist Rick Honult. Hunting tells San Antonio Metal Music Examiner: "We're happy with all the music that we made with Dukes. It's kind of screwed up that we were at an impasse when it came to making this album with him.
"But it was album number 10 and it needed to be special. We love those guys, we love all the music we created with Dukes singing and obviously Rick's a big part of the history of this band as well." here.

(hennemusic) The Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund, founded in memory of the late heavy metal singer, recently presented the T.J. Martell Foundation for Leukemia, Cancer and AIDS Research with a check for $100,000, bringing the organization's total gift to $400,000.
These monies are earmarked for gastric cancer research at the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center in Nashville, Tennessee. Ronnie James Dio died four years ago of gastric cancer, and the charity founded in his memory is committed to raising money and awareness in hope of one day finding a cure for this dreaded disease.
The presentation of the donation was made at the T.J. Martell Foundation's 39th Annual Honors Gala held at Cipriani in New York by Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, Dio Cancer Fund Medical Director (and co-founder, with Ronnie James Dio's widow Wendy Dio). Read more here.

The album won them the Breakthrough Award at this year's Metal Hammer Golden Gods. Frontman Austin Carlile recently said the band had turned their thoughts onto the follow-up, saying:
"When you're building a band, you have to think about two years down the road, and how what you are making now will impact you later. It's the next record that's really going to give us the platform to get where we want." Read more here.

(Classic Rock) Manic Street Preachers' members James Dean Bradfield and Sean Moore will take part in a charity hike in Patagonia, South America in November next year.
It's to raise cash for the Velindre Cancer Centre in Wales which was set up to support patients and their families and also funds research into the disease.
They say on their JustGiving page: "In November 2015 we will be walking in the footsteps of our Welsh ancestors when we will be part of the Velindre group of 50 people celebrating the 150th anniversary of Welsh settlers arriving in Patagonia with a challenging six-day trek.
"We will be carrying all our own kit, camping and walking up to 11 hours a day. Although this is a tough challenge, it is nothing compared to the challenge faced by people dealing with cancer." Read more here.

(Prog) Franck Carducci will release his second solo album in January. The prog multi-instrumentalist releases Torn Apart on January 9. The follow-up to 2011's Oddity features a guest appearance from former Genesis man Steve Hackett.
A trailer for the album has been made available, which shows Carducci and his collaborators at work in the studio. Torn Apart was original scheduled for a late 2014 release, but this has been pushed back into the new year.
Carducci said previously: "I'm thrilled that it will feature a special guest performance by Mr Steve Hackett himself. No need to mention that a collaboration with one of my all-time heroes is more than a dream come true for me."
Check out the trailer here.

(Radio.com) For the deluxe reissue of Paramore's 2013 self-titled album (out Monday, Nov. 24), the band has released a music video to accompany a new version of the song "Hate to See Your Heart Break," re-recorded with new vocals from Joy Williams, best known for her stint in now-defunct band The Civil Wars.
The duet is a culmination of the singers' long-running friendship that is only now manifesting itself in a musical way. "When we met, I was 12 and Joy was like 18 or 19, I think," Hayley Williams told NPR about the beginnings of the kinship. "I was already a fan of hers. It was fate that we became friends. She was always giving great advice and listening to songs I'd written or big plans I had about becoming a real artist
I love that I got to sing this with someone who I have shared my pains and my stories with for quite some time. Someone whom I know well and who I've sat and listened to as they share their own pains. It was never meant as romantic song between lovers but always a song to a friend. Now it's even more special. I think of it as an ode to sisterhood."
The track comes with a simple, black and white music video, which features both vocalists singing the song together in the vocal booth of the Village Recorder studio in Santa Monica, Calif.-the same room that Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks personally decorated during sessions for that band's 1979 album, Tusk Their voices mesh seamlessly on the new version of the tune, with their easy chemistry captured in the clip.
"I felt like some of the mystic spirit of Stevie is still in the walls there," Joy Williams said of the session. "That's a good energy to have in a room, especially with two women recording like we were. It felt like the perfect place to let down, light candles, take off our shoes and just be. We'd take breaks, make hot tea in the studio kitchen, and get lost in conversation before we realized we should probably get back to work."

(Radio.com) While fans can indulge in his box collection Real World 25, a three-CD set celebrating a quarter century of his Real World record label that was released earlier this fall, there has been no new music to be heard from Peter Gabriel in quite some time.
That is, until this past week. On Nov. 20 during a show in Torino, Italy, Gabriel debuted a brand new song called "What Lies Ahead." The somber, piano-based track has him lamenting about life. Sitting alongside of him was a cello player whose contributions added to the haunting ambiance of the song.
The four-minute piano ballad had the audience in silence as it's clear they're witnessing something no one has heard before. According to Stereogum, "What Lies Ahead" opened the acoustic segment of his Back to Front Tour.

(TeamRock Radio) Gov't Mule have streamed their cover of Pink Floyd classic Money from upcoming live DVD Dark Side Of The Mule. Warren Haynes and co recorded their three-hour performance of Floyd tracks in Boston in 2008. It's the first of a run of archive titles which Haynes hopes will present the chance to re-evaluate his band's work.
He says: "Each song on our 2013 album Shout! has its own personality - it sounds like Gov't Mule but doesn't sound like anything we'd ever done. These archive releases further that concept. They allow us to highlight some of our influences as well as how far we've come since the first album."
Dark Side Of The Mule is released via Mascot Label Group on December 8 on deluxe 3CD/DVD and standard CD. A double-vinyl edition follows on January 13.
Check out the stream here.

(Prog) Soen have released a music video for their track The Words. The song is taken from the prog outfit's second album Tellurian, released earlier this month via Spinefarm Records.
Soen's line-up includes former Opeth drummer Martin Lopez and Willowtree singer Joel Ekelof. They released their debut album Cognitive in 2012.
The video for The Words is described by the band as "more like a mini-film than it is a standard music video." They add: "The visuals advance a powerful and emotionally evocative plot, spliced with footage of the band performing in subdued fashion. Overall, the video is epic and cinematic in scope, just like the song."

(TeamRock Radio) Sylosis have released the somewhat graphic video for Leech, the second single from upcoming album Dormant Heart. Animated by Oliver Jones of Better Feeling Films, Leech took 60 days to put together including five hours of band footage.
Speaking about the new album, frontman Josh Middleton says: "I would say the album is probably our heaviest to date but this song showcases a more melodic and stripped back side to what we do.
"It's a really dark, sinister doomy sounding song and we thought it would be cool to try something a bit different for the video and have it reflect the vibe of the music.
"We've always wanted to have an animated music video and it allows for a bit more creativity and makes it stand out." Read more and watch the video here.

(Prog) Deadly Circus Fire have released a new track and full details of their upcoming album after their crowdfunding campaign hit its target. The British prog metal outfit are streaming Animal, taken from their second album The Hydra's Tailor, due out in 2015.
A Pledgemusic campaign hit its target this week, leading the band to confirm more details of the record including the artwork and tracklist. They previously released a video for the track House Of Plagues.
Guitarist Save Addario says: "After receiving such overwhelming support from fans and metal enthusiasts around the world, we have finally reached our goal to release our new album, The Hydra's Tailor.
"This album wouldn't be here if it weren't for those who care for independent music. To celebrate we're giving people one of our new songs, Animal, to listen and give a taste of what this album really is - a beast."

(Radio.com) On Minimation, we comb through the archives of legendary New York radio station WNEW-FM and animate interviews with legendary rock artists. In this 1988 interview, Robert Plant talks about kicking drugs and cigarettes. Of course, there were other parts of the "sex, drugs and rock and roll" equation that he didn't want to quit.
"I had a big affair with drugs," says Robert Plant, which probably wasn't news to anyone vaguely familiar with Led Zeppelin lore. "I just found that my whole personality had really changed, and I became quite paranoid about things and really possessive," which probably isn't news to anyone vaguely familiar with the effects of cocaine.
"I finally just stopped. I said, 'Stop! Don't do this! See what you've become!' It's a psychological addiction, it's not a physical addiction, I think." He notes that he had more recently quit cigarettes as well, but "I'm not trying to live a clean, pure life or live to be a hundred. I'll have a heart attack making love! But that's a nice way [to go]."
Finally, he wonders, "I just don't know why I took drugs for so long!" His advice for people considering drugs? "Just leave it! Throw it away. Take the money and find some chick and take her to the movies."
That advice, we trust , works whether you're 20 years old or 100. After all, it's a "nice way" to go! Watch it here.

(TeamRock Radio) Dave Grohl admits he often didn't know what he was talking about during interviews for his Sonic Highways documentary series. The Foo Fighters recorded all eight tracks on their latest album in a different US city, and he shot an accompanying film for each. But he believes his lack of knowledge was a help instead of a hindrance.
Grohl tells Rolling Stone: "I'm a music nerd but I'm not a musicologist - I love talking about music and hearing stories, but I also love not knowing everything. The interviews turned into conversations that turned into lessons.
"The intention was to inform people, not just tell them something they already knew. I'm sitting in front of Allen Toussaint, Cyril Neville or Dr John and they're telling me things I never knew; I think I have to do that to keep the tone genuine."
He adds: "I don't pretend to know everything - I'll tell the subjects, 'Just so you know, I don't know what the f*** I'm talking about.'" Read more here.
