Today's Day in Rock


Slipknot's New Drummer Unmasked?
(TeamRock Radio) The identity of Joey Jordison's replacement in Slipknot may have been revealed through the tweet of an angry ex-bandmate. It's been speculated for some time that Jay Weinberg, son of Bruce Springsteen's sticksman Max, is the man behind the kit for upcoming album 5. The Gray Chapter.

That hasn't been confirmed by the band - but a tweet by Weinberg's former colleague Laura Jane Grace seems to support the rumours. Weinberg, 24, was a member of Grace's band Against Me! for two years until December 2012, after a stint with Madball. Grace tweeted today: "Dear Slipknot, good luck with that. #sh*tbag."

She'd previously said she had no idea how or why Weinberg quit her outfit, saying: "I woke up one morning and read on Twitter that he was leaving. I have never talked to him since."

Queen Confirm New Album Featuring Unreleased Freddie Tracks
(hennemusic) Three previously unreleased Queen tracks featuring late singer Freddie Mercury are featured on the new compilation, "Queen Forever", due November 10 (Nov. 11 in North America).

The package include a long anticipated track from Queen and Michael Jackson, "There Must Be More To Life Than This", a previously unfinished Mercury-Queen track "Let Me In Your Heart Again" originating from the band's "The Works" album recording sessions, and a new stripped-down ballad version of Mercury's first solo hit, his Giorgio Moroder collaboration, "Love Kills."

The rest of the package brings together Queen hits, classic tracks, and new takes on well-known songs, matched with band recordings Brian May describes as "things that we have collected together that are representative of our growth rather than the big hits" in a collection immaculately assembled by May and Roger Taylor themselves. The tracks are all linked to represent a definitive collection of Queen's timeless love songs.

"Queen Forever" will be available as a 20-track single CD and as an extended 36-track, two-CD set. Read more here.

Sharon Osbourne Slashed Wrists To Impress Ozzy
(TeamRock Radio) Ozzy Osbourne's wife Sharon has admitted she once slashed her wrists in a "stupid" attempt to impress the Black Sabbath singer. She attacked herself with a knife in a hotel during the early stages of the pair's relationship - and she's spent years claiming the permanent scars were the result of a dog bite.

Sharon said on her US TV show: "I've never discussed it out of embarrassment. I was 27 and I was just going out with Ozzy at the time. When we first got together we'd drink a lot. We had a session of partying and it's about four in the morning. He says to me, 'How much do you really love me?' And I'm saying, 'I'd do anything for you. Anything, I absolutely adore you. I'd give my life for you.'

"I'm like, 'I'd die for you.' I went to a room service table and there was a steak knife. I get the knife and I'm like, 'I love you so much' - and slash, slash, slash on my wrist."

Korn Plan Full Album Shows For 20th Anniversary
(TeamRock Radio) Korn are planning to mark the 20th anniversary of their debut album by playing it live on tour, frontman Jonathan Davis has revealed. And the performances will include controversial track Daddy - his personal work about being abused which he'd previously said would never be staged.

Korn, released in October 1994, is considered to have established the nu metal genre, and it's sold more than 10 million copies worldwide to date. Davis tells 93.3 WMMR:

"On festivals we're going to play the first album in its entirety. Once the 20th anniversary hits we'll start doing it. We're even going play Daddy - I said I would never do it, but I'm going to do it anyway. We're going to do the complete album in its entirety then tag on some songs at the end of the show."

And he suggests they'll aim to capture the material in its original form. Read more here.

Sammy Hagar Working On Altering Birthday Bash Plans
(hennemusic) Sammy Hagar has issued an update on the post-Hurricane Odile situation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico following the recent cancellation of his annual Birthday Bash shows in the resort town.

"Hold tight Redheads - I'm waiting for the dust to settle down in Cabo," writes Hagar. "The military and government are in charge right now & once the town is a little more stable, I will figure out what to do to help. I want to thank all of you fans for your ideas and willingness to give and the best thing to do is just wait for now. Many of my friends, partners and employees that are in Cabo are doing all they can at the Cantina to help people."

"In the meantime," he continues, "I'm working on a place that can handle a gathering on short notice for Redheads who can't be in Cabo. One big bash somewhere - I hate sitting home on my birthday. Thank you and stay tuned."

David Bowie Releasing New Album Soon Says Producer
(hennemusic) David Bowie will release another album "soon" featuring new material, his long-time producer Tony Visconti tells CNN. The project would be the follow-up to 2013's "The Next Day", the singer's first new album in a decade.

"There's gonna be another album, definitely ... soon," the producer said -- although he didn't say when. Visconti played down any suggestion that Bowie might tour the new material.

"I don't think he's gonna busk in the Tube ... on the Underground. As far as a concert is concerned I have no idea. He clearly didn't promote 'The Next Day' with a concert and whether he does for the next one I don't know and I couldn't predict that - it's up to him. It's whatever takes his fancy."

Motorhead's Lemmy Kilmister Reveals Health Update
(hennemusic) Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister is sharing an update on his health following a 2013 hematoma (where blood collects outside of a blood vessel) that resulted in the cancellation of a European tour.

"Alright. I'm getting back there," Lemmy tells VH1. "We've just done two tours. It doesn't really matter what you do, it's how you do it and how you feel.

"I gave up smoking more or less. I have one now and again but that's about it. And I more or less gave up drinking or I switched to vodka instead of Jack Daniels, which is better for you apparently. If you're going to drink, that's the least harmful."

Previously fitted with a defibrillator because of heart problems, last year's issues were reportedly related to Lemmy's diabetes. Read more here.

Dave Grohl Pays Tribute To Late Gwar Frontman
(Radio.com) Dave Grohl may hang out with rock legends, and he's now a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer himself. But that's not to say he takes himself too seriously. Last week at the Foo Fighters' show at Richmond, Va.'s National Theatre (where they were performing to celebrate the town's "Foo Fighters Day" after a crowd funding campaign brought them there), Grohl spoke about seeing Richmond hometown heroes GWAR for the first time, and then recalled an interview with their late frontman Oderus Urungus (a.k.a. Dave Brockie) who died in March of this year.

He laughingly quoted Brockie, who, when asked about Grohl, gave a particularly brutal (and NSFW) answer: "'Dave Grohl, he's actually had his teeth removed so he could fit more GRAMMY d***s in his f***ing mouth.' So, right now, I give it up to Brockie!"

Naturally, GWAR responded in a very GWAR way. "I had every intention of going to Foo Fighters' show to kill Dave Grohl, but he said something really nice about Oderus," drummer JiZMak Da Gusha said. "I decided I'm going to spare his life this time."

Lombardo Predicts Slayer's Future
(TeamRock Radio) Fired Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo claims the band's manager will keep the band going as a franchise long after all original members are gone. He was replaced by Paul Bostaph last year, then the death of Jeff Hanneman three months later meant that only Tom Araya and Kerry King remain from the original lineup, with Exodus guitarist Gary Holt thought to be a permanent fixture.

Lombardo had accused Slayer's backroom staff of paying the members $400,000 in 2011 - while receipts showed their work had earned more than $4.4 million.

Now he Lokaos Rock Show: "I don't know anything about the new members except Gary. I don't know the other guy. After the two members are gone, the manager's probably going to use other members of the band - other musicians to continue the name."

Randy Blythe Says Book and New Lamb Of God Album Coming
(TeamRock Radio) Lamb Of God will release their eighth album next year, Randy Blythe has confirmed - and his book about his Czech manslaughter ordeal will be published around the same time.

The band haven't begun work on the follow-up to 2012's Resolution, which is why the frontman can't offer any details. Blythe tells Jamey Jasta on The Jasta Show: "The new album and the book will be released in the early part of next year, close together. It's hard to say with the record because we haven't written it yet - but the book is almost done."

It's likely guitarist Mark Morton will contribute lyrics. "We haven't discussed it," says Blythe, but adds: "With lyric writing, very rarely do we disagree about something. He's more into the way things sound, and that's why he's good at writing the hooks. Sometimes with my words, I'll get him to help me figure out how to phrase things. But this record, I'm sure he'll add some."

Slash Gets Guitar Lessons From Myles Kennedy
(TeamRock Radio) Slash has told how he's often gets guitar lessons from bandmate Myles Kennedy. The pair exchange compliments in an exclusive interview in The Classic Rock Magazine Show on TeamRock Radio on Monday, September 22.

They discuss their third album World On Fire, which is available now as a Classic Rock Fanpack - a month before general release. The conversation includes an exchange about the former Guns N' Roses axeman's self-taught background, and its comparison to his colleague's more formal education.

Slash tells host Nicky Horne: "Myles teaches me stuff. Technically he's much more proficient than I am. He knows way more about all that stuff. There's been a few times where he's shown me licks, runs, arpeggios or scales and I'm like, 'What was that?'"

But Kennedy counters: "I'll show him a little thing he might like - something I've spent months perfecting to execute. Then I'll hear him play it that that night. He'll run through it once then he'll play it that night perfectly. He's a natural and he won't give himself credit for that."

Atreyu Guitarist 'Stoked' At Fan's Reaction To Comeback Album
(TeamRock Radio) Atreyu guitarist Travis Miguel says he's "stoked" at the way fans have responded to the group's latest release. They returned from a three-year hiatus in July and released So Others May Live earlier this month. Now Miguel reveals the track is a good indication of where the band is heading.

He tells Caliber TV: "We got in a room and started writing and whatever came out, came out. A good gauge of that is So Others May Live and I think the response to that song has been really awesome, so we're stoked."

Miguel admits the band were "going through the motions" before they decided to go on hiatus and that caused them to take stock. He continues: "Towards the end of that last run, we were all fried and burnt out - we were all sick. There was no morale left and we were just going through the motions - well I was, anyway.

Jack White Jealous Of Dylan's Era In Music
(Classic Rock) Jack White admits he struggles for musical inspiration - despite the success of his second solo album Lazaretto. And he's recalled the moment he told Bob Dylan he was jealous that he hadn't been born decades earlier, when it was easier to find subjects for songs.

White tells Rolling Stone: "I was talking to Bob and I said, 'In a way, you guys had it so lucky in the Sixties.' All these recording techniques that had never been tried before, the Civil Rights movement was coming to a head, the Vietnam War. The whole world was changing; there was so much to sing about. It was like shooting fish in a barrel."

He can't find the same encouragement in the modern world. "I don't see beauty in teenagers sitting next to each other texting and not talking face to face," he says. "I don't see beauty in the way that pop music is all recorded on computers and autotune, and presented in that really plastic way."

Ben Craven Releases Critical Mass Part 2
(TeamRock Radio) Australian singer/songwriter Ben Craven has released his latest single Critical Mass Part 2. And he's launched it via his digital TuneLeak platform, which allows artists to release tracks at various stages in their development.

The single will feature on Craven's upcoming third full-length recording, tentatively titled Last Chance To Hear - the follow-up to 2011's Great & Terrible Potions. And he reveals he's trying a new business model so he can involve fans throughout the recording process.

Craven explains: "This project is being driven by music industry commentators saying the album is dead. I agree it's an endangered species, at least commercially.

"As a musician and a listener, I'm very attached to the concept of albums as coherent collections of songs and all the emotional ties we make with them. So for this album I'm trying a different business model where I can engage the audience at every step of the recording process, officially leak songs well before they're finished, and hopefully even get paid!"

Queen Reveal Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson Duet
(hennemusic) Queen are premiering the new Freddie Mercury duet with Michael Jackson, "There Must Be More to Life Than This," which is the lead single from the band's forthcoming compilation, "Queen Forever", due November 10 (Nov. 11 in North America).

"Michael used to come see us a lot," guitarist Brian May told Rolling Stone late last year. "He was a big big fan, especially of Freddie, and Freddie and Michael got on real real well. Michael was very impressed with our lighting rig, I remember. I can't remember which tour it was. We had pods of lights that moved above the stage that had pilots in them.

"He said, 'I'm stealing that,' and sure enough on the 'Victory' tour they had something very similar. But Michael really was very fond of Freddie and sort've idolized him. Michael really felt he wanted to be a rock star."

As for the song, "He and Freddie worked mainly at Michael's studio," added May. Read more and listen to the song here.

Conan Takes U2 Removal A Step Further
(hennemusic) TBS late-night host Conan O'Brien has unveiled Apple's new U2 removal service following customer complaints about receiving the band's latest album, "Songs Of Innocence", for free via iTunes.

While Apple issued a tool to help users remove the free record from their systems, the new eRase U2 service goes a step further as you'll see in the video.

Apple recently released "Songs Of Innocence" free to more than a half a billion iTunes customers as part of their launch of the iPhone 6, but Apple and U2 have both faced a backlash from users who weren't pleased with the publicity stunt.

"If you would like U2's Songs of Innocence removed from your iTunes music library and iTunes purchases, you can choose to have it removed," explains the web page. "Once the album has been removed from your account, it will no longer be available for you to redownload as a previous purchase."

Video From Foo Fighters Crowdfunded Concert Goes Online
(hennemusic) The Foo Fighters played their first crowdfunded concert at The National Theater in Richmond, Virginia on Wednesday, and video from the show has surfaced.

The band's first appearance in the city after 16 years was kickstarted by a Crowdhoster campaign launched in March by Andrew Goldin. Goldin and his fellow organizers, Brig White, John McAdorey and Lucas Krost, set a goal of selling 1,400 tickets at $50 each to the hypothetical concert in order to convince the band to return.

Donors' credit cards would only be charged if the show sold out, and the contributions would be returned if the band didn't agree to play. The campaign surpassed its goal of raising $70,000 to make the event a reality.

Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones declared September 17 "Foo Fighters Day" in the city as part of welcoming the band back to Dave Grohl's former hometown.

Halestorm Still Feel Like 14-Year-Olds Inside
(Classic Rock) Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale says while the band have evolved as they've grown, they still feel like 14-year-olds inside. They are currently in the studio working on their as-yet-untitled third album, the follow-up to 2012's A Strange Case Of… which is pencilled in for a late 2014/early 2015 release.

Hale tells Gearphoria: "We've definitely evolved. The one thing that has remained the same is that we're all perpetually 14 year old inside, so we're all very immature.

"That hasn't changed much. But the animal or monster of Halestorm has gotten bigger, and obviously there's more responsibility and a little more on the line. But for the most part we've continued to do what we've always done, which is chase after whatever gets us excited."

(Prog) North Atlantic Oscillation have released a video for their track August, from upcoming release The Third Day. The Scots trio launch their fourth album on October 6 via Kscope.

It follows 2012's Fog Electric, which Prog described as "the Nexus of pop, prog, post-rock and shoegaze." Frontman Sam Healy had the following to say about the promo clip:

"We became fascinated with the Codex Seraphinianus, an illustrated encyclopaedia of an imaginary world created by Italian architect Luigi Serafini. The video is a sort of homage to Serafini's astounding work - we imagine what his creatures, plants and gizmos might do if they could leap off the page."

Mainman Dave Gregory, formerly of XTC, says: "It was important to us all that we made the best album we possibly could - and without a doubt, that's what we've achieved."

Prog last month premiered the band's video for Summer Now and described Scorch as "an album brimming with painstakingly detailed miniatures located within a bigger picture."

Check out the song here.

Saille Release Teaser For New Album 'Eldritch'
(TeamRock Radio) Belgian black metal outfit Saille have released a teaser for Eldritch, their horror-inspired third album. They say the follow-up to 2013's Ritu features more guitars and more edge, plus increased input from the drumstool via new member Kevin De Leener.

The digibook edition contains quotes from books with permission from their authors, including horror master Stephen King. Keyboardist Dries Gaerdelen says:

"The lyrics are based on both classic and modern literature. They explore the pure nature of horror as perceived in different times and media. They complete the songs by adding the untouchable and the uncomfortable in an organic and unforced way."

Check out the teaser here.

George Harrison's Unusual Friendship With Eric Clapton Animated
(Radio.com) Radio.com's latest Minimation is taken from a 1987 WNEW-FM interview with George Harrison, where he discusses how his unusual friendship with Eric Clapton.

Say your best friend was in love with your spouse. So in love, in fact, that he or she wrote a passionate ode to your spouse that became one of the biggest hits in rock radio history. Awkward, right? It would pretty tough to stay friends under those conditions, would it not?

But, as well all know, rock stars are a different breed. And so, after a bit of weirdness between George Harrison, who was married to Patti Boyd, and Eric Clapton, who would soon marry her, it was all good. So good, that Harrison was the best man at the Clapton/Boyd wedding, as George explains in this interview.

And not only that: they still played music together. At the time of this interview, Harrison was plugging his comeback album, 1987's Cloud Nine which Clapton played lead guitar on (the album also featured Harrison's fellow Traveling Wilbury Jeff Lynne, Elton John and Ringo Starr, among others). A few years later, Harrison contributed "Run So Far" (and played guitar on the track) to Clapton's 1989 Journeyman album.

Alas, the Boyd/Clapton marriage didn't last either; they divorced in 1989. She tells her side of the story in her 2007 memoirs, Wonderful Tonight (named after the song that Clapton wrote about her).
