Josh Homme Apologizes For Kicking Photographer

Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has apologized for an incident involving a photographer that took place during the band's performance at a California radio festival this past weekend.

The band was playing the 28th annual KROQ Acoustic Christmas and during their set Homme's foot connected with a camera held by a photographer in the photo pit in front of the stage.

On Sunday, Homme put out the following statement/apology for the incident, "Last night, while in a state of being lost in performance, I kicked over various lighting and equipment on our stage.

"Today it was brought to my attention that this included a camera held by photographer Chelsea Lauren. I did not mean for that to happen and I am very sorry. I would never intentionally cause harm to anyone working at or attending one of our shows and I hope Chelsea will accept my sincere apology." Watch video of the incident here.

Tool Album Will Be Out In 2018 Says Band Member

It has been almost a dozen years since Tool released their last studio album "10,000 Days" but drummer Danny Carey said in a recent interview that the following will be out in 2018.

Carey was a guest on The MetalSucks Podcast and was asked about previous comments made by his bandmate that fans can expected the new studio effort to be released in the coming year.

The show asked (via Lmabgoat) "My co-host... talked to Justin Chancellor earlier this year. Justin made us feel like Tool would have a new album out in 2018. On a scale of 1-10, how much did Justin lie to us?

Carey responded, "He did not lie to you. On scale of how much he lied, it would be zero. It'll be out. It'll be out in 2018."

Hynde arrived on stage during the encore portion of Plant's gig to perform their cover of the Ersel Hickey rockabilly classic, "Bluebirds Over The Mountain", as featured on the Led Zeppelin singer's "Carry Fire" album.

Alongside the Sensational Space Shifters, the duo then delivered the Pretenders 1984 track, "2000 Miles", with Plant telling the audience before he handled backup vocals: "On a wing and a prayer, we have a beautiful song for you that only Chrissie can sing right"

The London show marked one of the final dates of a month-long UK tour by Plant, which will wrap up in Birmingham on December 12. Watch videos of the Plant and Hynde performances here.

Ghost Surprise Release 'Ceremony And Devotion' Album

(hennemusic) Ghost have surprise-released a digital version of their new live album, "Ceremony And Devotion", and are streaming a performance of "Absolution" ahead of the project being issued on 2CD, 2LP and 8-track on January 19.

The song was originally featured on the band's third record, 2015's "Meliora", which delivered Ghost their first-ever US Top 10 when the project debuted on the Billboard 200 at No. 8 and went on to win the group their first Grammy Award in the Best Metal performance category for the set's lead single, "Cirice", and a Swedish Grammis Award for the "Best Hard Rock/Metal Album" of the year category.

Recorded during Ghost's 2017 world tour, "Ceremony And Devotion" was produced and mixed by Tom Dalgety and features fan favorites spanning the band's entire catalog - from 2010's "Opus Eponymous", 2013's "Infestissumam", 2015's "Meliora" and 2016's "Popestar" EP.

Ghost revealed their new frontman, Papa Emeritis Zero, in a dramatic fashion at the finale of their September 30 concert in Gothenburg, Sweden; he replaces outgoing frontman Papa Emeritus III as the band prepares for album number four.

"We've been in the studio for about a month now," singer Tobias Forge (aka Papa) explained recently, "and by the end of the year, if everything goes according to plan - knock, knock - we're gonna have a new album, not out, but we're gonna have a new recorded and mixed and delivered. And hopefully that means that we're gonna have a new album out by April - possibly, hopefully." Stream the new song and watch the video trailer for the album here.

Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger and Keith Richards Podcast Released

(Gibson) The Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger and Keith Richards have sat down with (current) BBC DJ Matt Everitt to discuss the On Air album for a new iTunes podcast.

On Air, out now, collects the band's UK radio appearances for the BBC in the early-mid 1960s, and includes eight tracks band have never recorded or released commercially. They were originally broadcast on bygone BBC shows such as Saturday Club, Top Gear, Rhythm and Blues and The Joe Loss Pop Show between 1963 and 1965. The podcast is in three episodes, each covering one of those three years.

Richards recently told The Los Angeles Times, "We just got off the road, and I wish there were a few more shows. We were just hitting a groove! The BBC wanted us and we didn't know really why or what we were doing. We were playing blues in bars, for Christ's sake, but then we got a Top 10 record and suddenly we're the other alternative to the Beatles, bless their hearts. Yeah, I mean, they broke the doors down, especially Johnny (Lennon). We always got along."

Of the actual recordings, Richards says, "When I hear it, I hear a lot of energy and enthusiasm - and then I want to go in and remix it. But there was no remixing done then. You think - you believe, the way you're brought up in London - that the BBC know what they're doing. Then you get there and find out they have no idea how to record a band like this."

Simple Minds Announce New Album With Two Distinct 'Sides'

(Gibson) Simple Minds have announced that they will release Walk Between Worlds, their first album of new material since 2014's Big Music. Release date is February 2 on BMG.

Produced by the veteran Glasgow band with Andy Wright and Gavin Goldberg, who each worked on Big Music, the album is just eight tracks and a concise 42 minutes of two distinct "sides." It's an old-school format that recalls albums from the days when founder members Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill were growing up as music fans.

"Side One" tracks such as "Summer" and "The Signal And The Noise" revisit the glassy guitars and new wave grooves of the post-punk era. "Side Two" explores more cinematic sounds, with the title track and "Barrowland Star" featuring dramatic orchestrations recorded at Abbey Road.

Guitarist Charlie Burchill recently told Gibson.com how playing the Acoustic shows, which relied on Burchill's new Gibson Hummingbirds, was affecting the band's developing sound. "Everyone has commented on the space in the music, particularly with Jim's vocal. If you don't have a lot of space around a vocal, you do lose a lot of expression and I think that's going to affect the sound in the future. The whole thing has taught us a lot. Unexpectedly so, but in a really good way."

But on the some songs, Burchill revisits the feel of some of his boyhood heroes. "Barrowland Star" features a glistening solo reminiscent of Burchill's Les Paul-playing idol Mick Ronson, of David Bowie's Spiders From Mars. "I met him a few times 'cos he produced a band, The Visible Targets, who supported us in the '80s, and he was a really sweet guy too. With Mick Ronson, it's not just his playing, but his arranging, production, everything. Absolute hero." here.

Myles Kennedy Releases 'Year Of The Tiger' Video

(hennemusic) Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy is streaming a video for the first single and title track to his forthcoming debut solo album, "Year Of The Tiger," will be released on March 9, 2018 on CD, LP and in digital formats

Kennedy recorded the album this year with producer and longtime Alter Bridge associate Michael "Elvis" Baskette. Directed by Dan Sturgess, the new music video follows "a reflective Kennedy as he travels through the memory of the loss of his father in 1974 - the year of the tiger."

"It basically tells a story from start to finish," the rocker tells Metal Wani about the project, "and it documents when my father passed away when I was a kid and basically what happened after that with my mom, my brother and I - it tells that story. So it's a full-on concept from start to finish." Watch the video here.

R.E.M.'s 'Automatic for the People' Anniversary Documentary Streaming

(Radio.com) It's been 25 years since R.E.M. released Automatic for the People, their seminal 1992 album containing hits like "Man On The Moon" and "Everybody Hurts."

In addition to an anniversary re-release of the album, the band has assembled a documentary: Automatic Unearthed. R.E.M. made the film available on YouTube for fans to enjoy.

Automatic for the People was never promoted with a traditional tour, and R.E.M. shared footage from their one-off 1992 concert in Athens, Georgia last month.

In addition, the band has partnered with designer Paul Smith for a limited edition anniversary clothing line. Watch Automatic Unearthed here.
