Guns N' Roses Share Video Of Jam With ZZ Top Legend

(hennemusic) Guns N' Roses were joined by ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons for a performance of their 1989 hit, "Patience", at the Toyota Center in Houston, TX on November 10, and the band are sharing video from the concert.

"Great night with Billy Gibbons in Houston tonight!," posted the group on Twitter after the show. ZZ Top opened for GNR during a pair of Texas dates this fall before they were forced to shut down their 2017 Tonnage Tour when bassist Dusty Hill came down with an undisclosed stomach ailment.

Last month, Guns N' Roses were joined by pop singer Pink for a performance of "Patience" at Madison Square Garden in New York as the group plays shows on a fall North American leg of the Not In This Lifetime Tour that will wrap up at The Forum in Los Angeles, CA on November 29.

Guns N' Roses have extended the reunion tour into a third year with the addition of summer 2018 concert dates across Europe. Watch the video of the jam with the ZZ Top icon here.

Metallica's Full Band Together Benefit Performance Streaming Online

(hennemusic) Metallica headlined Band Together, a November 9 benefit concert at San Francisco's AT&T Park for those affected by the recent wildfires in California, and video of the group's full performance is available online.

Streamed live by hennemusic, the event saw the metal icons top the bill alongside sets by Dead & Company, Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds, G-Eazy, Rancid and Raphael Saadiq.

The evening raised funds to assist families impacted by the fires and honor the thousands of first responders. "[Last] month Northern California, the community that we have called home for over 34 years, suffered devastating wildfires that have destroyed homes and displaced over 100,000 of our neighbours in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake and other counties in the North Bay," explained Metallica. "We're extremely saddened by the suffering that so many are feeling in the Bay Area, but are also inspired by the enormous outpouring of love and support from all around the country and want to jump in and help in the way we know how to - through music!

"All funds from ticket sales will benefit Tipping Point Community, who have set up an Emergency Relief Fund for low-income, vulnerable communities impacted by the crisis, including vineyard workers, immigrants, displaced young people, and students. 100% of the ticket price will be donated to this fund and you can learn more about them at TippingPoint.org.

"If you would still like to contribute, you may donate directly to Tipping Point. You may also donate to the Metallica All Within My Hands Foundation through the Foundation's Facebook page. All Within My Hands will be making a donation to Tipping Point Community, and 100% of your contribution will be included." Watch vide of the band's full performance here.

Iron Maiden Frontman Hits New York Times Best Sellers List Top 10

(hennemusic) Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson's new memoir, "What Does This Button Do?," has debuted at No. 10 on the New York Times Hardcover Non-Fiction Best-Seller list.

The US chart debut follows a recent No. 1 entry on the UK's Sunday Times Bestsellers List, an achievement to which the singer remarked: "A few beers were had here at Maiden Towers... A big thank you to everyone who bought the book, whether it was by pre-order, in the shops, at a signing or at an event!"

Dickinson launched the project with a series of in-store book signings in both the US and his native UK. In "What Does This Button Do?", Dickinson - a man who famously never gives interviews about his personal life - shares, for the first time, the most fascinating recollections including his years with Iron Maiden, the early days, his childhood within the eccentric British school system, going solo, realizing his dream of flying jumbo jets and his recent battle with tongue cancer.

Singled Out: Evil Invaders' Broken Dreams In Isolation

Evil Invaders recently released their new album "Feed Me Violence" and to celebrate we asked vocalist and guitarist Joe to tell us about the song "Broken Dreams In Isolation." Here is the story:

The last few years I have lived in a total rush. While when I was younger I took my time to enjoy every moment I lived, lately it seems that the older I get, the faster the years are passing by and every day is filled with a list of stuff I still need to do. My mind has no rest and sometimes it feels like I'm constantly trying to keep my head above the water as I'm swimming against a strong current. This song was written in a moment when there was a lot of stuff on my mind. We were having some member changes within the band and it felt like my dreams were falling apart and I had to use all my strength to keep this sh*t alive. At the same time I was having a hard time trying to combine the band with the relationship I was in because both of these things were consuming all my time.

Not losing control and keeping my head up were essential to be able to get through all of this. So it felt like I took all the negative feelings and memories of better times, my weak spots so to say, and stored them in a box in the attic of my mind. I didn't want to feel desperate or to compare the situation I was in with nice memories because it would distract me from achieving my goal and getting my life back on track. Of course I was repressing a lot of emotions and I knew this would take it's toll at some moment in the future but it just wasn't allowed to happen right now. "Suspended re-animation of broken dreams in isolation" refers to the dreams and feelings that were stored in the attic so to say. I chose to post-pone the reopening of that box but how long will the tape that keeps it closed hold? How long can I keep it under control? I would need some time on my own to deal with the suppressed anger that's burning inside of me but I can't seem to find my peace of mind anymore...

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

Rush Release Video Preview For A Farewell To Kings Reissue

(hennemusic) Rush are streaming a video preview of the December 1st release of an expanded 40th anniversary reissue of their 1977 album, "A Farewell To Kings."

The band's fifth record delivered classic tracks like "Closer To The Heart", "Cinderella Man" and "Xanadu" while peaking at No. 33 on the US Billboard 200.

The 40th Anniversary package will be available in four configurations: the Super Deluxe Edition, three-CD Deluxe Edition, four-LP Deluxe Edition, and the Deluxe Digital Edition.

The 3CD/1Blu-ray Audio CD/4LP Super Deluxe Edition (full track listing below) presents the 2015 remastered edition of the album for the first time on CD, a complete Rush concert recorded at London's Hammersmith Odeon in February 1978, four newly-recorded cover versions of songs from the original album by Dream Theater, Big Wreck, The Trews and Alain Johannes, and an instrumental studio outtake of the spacey sound effects the band has creatively titled "Cygnus X-2 Eh".

The Super Deluxe Edition's audio content on its CDs is duplicated on its vinyl discs. Meanwhile, the Blu-ray Audio disc contains a brand new 5.1 surround mix of the album by four-time Grammy nominated surround sound producer Steven Wilson, along with three original 1977 promo videos from a newly found 2-inch quad video master significantly improving the video quality for "Closer To The Heart". The package also includes a new 40th anniversary cover treatment by longtime Rush creative director Hugh Syme, and an extensive 12,000-word liner notes by Grammy-winning rock historian Rob Bowman.

The Super Deluxe set also adds some goodies for fans, including a unique King's Ring, with custom velvet pouch and neck chain; two lithographs with original artwork by Syme; a special 12-inch turntable mat featuring distinctive artwork by Syme; and a reproduction of Rush's original 1978 A Farewell To Kings tour program.

The 3CD Deluxe Edition mirrors the three discs from the Super Deluxe set - the remastered 2015 album plus the London concert and song extras.

The audiophile 180-gram 4LP Deluxe Edition delivers the same audio content as the 3-CD package alongside double-gatefold packaging, a 32-page vinyl-size booklet, the special 12-inch turntable mat, along with Syme's artwork and Bowman's liner notes.

The Deluxe Digital Edition presents the original album as disc 1, the complete Hammersmith concert unedited as disc 2, and the four covers songs plus the "Cygnus X-2 Eh" outtake as Disc 3. Watch the preview clip here.

Iconic David Bowie Collaborator Paul Buckmaster Dead At 71

(Gibson) Arranger Paul Buckmaster, whose talents graced the work of such seminal artists as David Bowie, Elton John, and the Rolling Stones, has died. He was 71.

Buckmaster contributed orchestral arrangements for many of John's early albums - including Elton John, Tumbleweed Connection, and Madman Across the Water. Other highlights of his work include arrangements for Harry Nilsson's "Without You," Carly Simon's "You're So Vain," Bowie's "Space Oddity," and the Stones' "Moonlight Mile" and "Sway."

While many associate Buckmaster with his early '70s work, he remained active and prolific through the years, eventually earning a Grammy in 2002 for his arrangement of Train's "Drops of Jupiter." Most recently he lent his skills to Heart's 2016 album, Beautiful Broken. here.

Jack White's Next Album Is Practically Done

(Gibson) Jack White's last solo album release was 2014's Lazaretto. In the interim, he's released two live albums, a compilation of previously unreleased acoustic recordings and one single. Which means a new album is about due.

In the past, while talking about the in-the-works album, White described it as "good gardening music or roofing music or, you know, back-alley stabbing music. I'm trying to think of some good activities that people haven't written songs for yet."

In his latest description of the project - while making an appearance at the Making Vinyl conference in Detroit earlier this week - White said that the album is "practically done, just some finishing touches. It's a bizarre one. I've just got to let it settle. I need to listen to it by myself. I haven't been able to listen to it by myself for a while." According to Billboard, the new album is expected in the first half of 2018. here.

Chad Smith Goes To Greek Acropolis With Foo Fighters for Historic Show

(Radio.com) Earlier this year, the Foo Fighters made history when they were the first rock band to perform at the Greek Acropolis in Athens. They were joined on their journey to Greece with Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer Chad Smith, who was there with a PBS crew to capture the moment for the show Landmarks Live in Concert.

It's a show that follows artists performing in iconic venues around the world, with Smith serving as the host. For the Foo Fighters to make the band's first-ever performance in Greece, Smith reveals that as expected, it took a lot of effort to pull off.

"There's a level of red tape that goes with playing a 2500-year-old venue with a major rock band, when they've never had rock bands play there," Smith shared during a recent phone conversation. "They were very gracious and it was a real fun, once in a lifetime kind of experience for everybody. It was truly magical."

Watching the Foo Fighters episode, it's apparent that everyone involved in the show is awed by the location, with the band members and Smith all looking around the venue with wide-eyed wonder as they arrive.

"A lot of it was that it's quite historical. Many important things from western civilization happened in Athens and at the Acropolis," Smith said regarding their reaction to the venue. "As much as you can talk about it, until you actually go there, it's pretty wild to set foot on that stage. It can be kind of daunting."

"Nobody ever playing there before was a big part of it, too," he added. "The Foo Fighters had never played in Greece before. You can't help but be stunned when you're there. Dave (Grohl) even says onstage that they've done some crazy things, but they'd never done anything like that." Read more here.

(hennemusic) Jeff Lynne's ELO are streaming video of a 2017 performance of their 1975 classic, "Evil Woman", ahead of the November 17 release of the live album and concert film package, "Wembley Or Bust."

The lead single from the Electric Light Orchestra's fifth album, "Face The Music", was the group's first worldwide hit, scoring Top 10 chart spots in both the US and the band's native UK while the project went on to Platinum sales in both countries.

Multi-instrumentalist Lynne has been touring in recent years under the banner Jeff Lynne's ELO. Directed by Paul Dugdale, "Wembley Or Bust" captures Lynne's sold-out show before 60,000 fans at London's Wembley Stadium this past June, where he delivered material from the group's extensive hit-filled discography; the show also includes tracks by The Move and The Traveling Wilburys.

"It's the best time I ever had in music," says Lynne of the Wembley event. "It is beyond anything I could have imagined." The new live release will be available in multiple formats, including 2CD/Blu Ray, 2 CD/DVD, 2CD and 3LP packages. Watch the video here.
