Today's Day in Rock Stories


Some Day In Rock Report Changes

Cha-cha-changes... If you are a regular Day In Rock reader, you may have noticed some slight changes over the past few weeks. Don't worry, you will still be able to enjoy the report like you always have but we are making some changes behind the scenes and will be gradually transitioning to a live format so we can bring you stories as they break and even more stories.

What this means is if you want to check in once a day you can view the report each day in the traditional way but those who want more timely news will be able to check in throughout the day for the latest stories.

We hope to be fully transitioned by the New Year. For now, we will be doing two or three updates during the day; the traditional morning one, as well as one in the afternoon and some evenings. (Today we just have a short report but will be publishing the Page Too report later in the day. We will begin the transition format tomorrow)

We are also looking at bringing back the fan comment sections that were sadly removed due to spammers and trolls. In our early years the fans sections were our favorite part of the site and we hope we can bring them back for everyone to enjoy and offer their views on the news topics. Look for those to return sometime later this month.

We may experiment with things a little as we transitions so please be patient as we figure out the best way to bring you the top rock news of the day as we begin our third decade next year!

Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl Looks Back In Landmarks Preview Clip

(hennemusic) The Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl and Landmarks Live In Concert host Chad Smith discuss the music their families listened to when they were growing up and how it impacted them in a new video preview of the November 10 broadcast of the new PBS series.

"When I was a kid, 70's AM radio…" begins the singer…"RULED!" adds Smith. "I swear to God," continues Grohl, "still like…that's got such a big place in my heart. 10CC, Andrew Gold, and Gerry Rafferty."

The Foos frontman goes on to explain that his collection of hardcore punk growing up was dramatically different from his father's trained background as a classical flautist and his mother's love of show tunes, while his older sister had an interest in new wave and classic rock at the time, but that there was common ground to be had in the Grohl household.

"I would dip into everybody's albums and listen to them," adds the rocker, while the Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer had a similar experience. "I did the same thing," says Smith of raiding his older sister's collection of soft rock music that he feels influenced him somewhere along the way.

The "Landmarks Live In Concert" episode sees the Foo Fighters perform at the ancient Acropolis theater in Athens, Greece during a July concert at the venue. Read more and see the clip here.

'Sgt. Pepper's' Cover Updated To Feature Artists Lost in 2017

(Radio.com) British artist Chris Barker has shared a new rendering of the Beatles' iconic Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover honoring stars who've passed away this year.

Among the artists featured include Tom Petty, Fats Domino, Chester Bennington, Chuck Berry, Chris Cornell, Gord Downie of Tragically Hip, Al Jarreau and Glen Campbell. The artwork also features non-musicians such as Roger Moore and Hugh Hefner.

This is Chris Barker's second such version of the album cover. He produced one last year featuring Prince, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Glenn Frey, George Martin and more.

"Last year I was surprised at the amount of attention my Sgt. Pepper montage of all the big names we had lost received in the media," Barker told Billboard. "Millions of retweets, articles online, newspapers, magazines, radio, TV, at home and around the world. It genuinely got to the point where I wouldn't have been surprised to see someone getting it as a tattoo." Read more and see a larger image of the cover here.

Singled Out: The Coronas' Real Feel

Irish rockers The Coronas scored a No.1 debut with their new album "Trust The Wire" and tonight they kick off the U.S. portion of their North American tour. To celebrate we asked Danny O'Reilly to tell us about their song "Real Feel." Here is the story:

I had the basic idea for the chords to the main verse of the song and the syncopated rhythm when I brought it to my sister, Roisin O, and her guitar player John Broe, who had written with us before.

I was talking to Roisin about how it's cool when you meet someone early in a relationship and their personality surprises you. I often describe things as 'Real' but Roisin came up with the 'Real Feel' phrase. John did some great work on the drum pattern which survives in the album version now.

I brought a rough demo of what the 3 of us came up with to the rest of the band and we worked tirelessly on it. Sometimes a song comes together quickly but we actually demoed this song twice more and were still changing it when we brought it into studio with Eliot James, our producer. Eliot added some amazing percussion parts and synth lines that really brought it all together so we felt it was fair to give him a writing credit on the song too. It was a song that really came together in the mixing stage, lyrically I like its optimism and I was delighted to put down my acoustic guitar and piano and start playing electric guitar again, it led me to play a bit more of it on other songs on the album too. A fun song to play live, it's gotten great radio play for us and at the moment is our live show opener!

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen and watch for yourself here and learn more about the album and see the current tour dates right here!

Bring Me the Horizon's Oli Sykes Reflects On Chester Bennington's Influence

(Radio.com) Bring Me the Horizon frontman Oli Sykes discussed the profound influence that late Linkin Park's Chester Bennington had on him in a new interview.

"When I heard the news he had died I was in Los Angeles, not too far away from where it happened. At first I didn't believe it, to be honest," Sykes told Kerrang.

"When it was clear it was real, I felt weird. I know we've lost a lot of great artists over the years, but no-one had the impact and influence on my life that he did. Him as a vocalist and his band are genuinely responsible for the path I chose in life.

"Losing someone that you don't actually know - obviously I met him, but I couldn't call him a friend - is such a strange feeling. I feel like I miss his presence, even though I didn't really know him. I think it's important that you grieve and appreciate what you and we've all lost."

The singer when on to detail how Bennington's vocal style influenced him as a performer. Read about that here.

Weezer Rock 'Happy Hour' On 'The Late Late Show'

(Radio.com) On Monday night, Weezer appeared The Late Late Show to perform "Happy Hour." The song comes from their new album California Daydream, which is a delightful, divisive confection of Beach Boys vibes and warm, nostalgic moods.

Rivers Cuomo recently clapped back at fans who expected something heavier to follow-up the band's acclaimed White Album and the band continues to promote California Daydream and its singles with gusto.

Fans will get to experience Pacific Daydream on the road when Weezer joins forces with Pixies this summer. The joint tour kicks off June 23 in Tampa and wraps up in Phoenix on August 12. Meanwhile, Cuomo confirmed that the much-anticipated "Black Album" will be the next Weezer release. Fans of a darker, heavier Weezer will get what they want soon. Watch "Happy Hour" on 'Corden' here.
