Steven Tyler Addresses Health Speculation Over Tour Cancelation

(hennemusic) Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler has issued an updated on his health status following reports that he may have experienced a possible seizure that resulted in the cancellation of the final dates of the band's South American tour.

A story in The Boston Globe this past week indicated that the news outlet was told by a source close to the band that the 69-year-old suffered a seizure after the show that led him to return home immediately to seek medical treatment

"It breaks my heart to have left this tour early," posted Tyler on his social media sites on September 30. "The band has never played better - just watch the hundred thousand people at Rock In Rio.

"I give you all an A+ for creative speculations but I certainly did not have a heart attack or a seizure (unless Joe Perry is takin' a rippin' lead). Sorry to have cut the tour short, but I had to have a procedure that only my doc in the States could perform.

"We've been to Tel Aviv, to Russia, to Rio, and all the in between… I guess it's true what they say... that life's a pisser when Eu're A Peein'..." Read more here.

Dave Grohl Opens Up About Dealing With Kurt Cobain's Suicide

(Radio.com) Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl took a thoughtful and somber trip down memory lane during a new interview where he discussed recovering from the devastation of Kurt Cobain's suicide.

"The Nirvana experience was such a whirlwind," he said during the wide-ranging interview with Hot Press. "It all happened so quickly - exploded without any warning. And then it just disappeared. Life had changed so much it was almost like you had to find something to hold onto so that you didn't get swept away. Once it was over, I couldn't imagine stepping on stage or sitting down at a drum stool and playing music anymore. It would just bring me back to the heartbreaking place of losing Kurt."

He went to reveal how making music served as therapy, as songs he recorded in a random studio planted the seeds that would become the Foo Fighters.

"I felt I had to do it - to exorcise something in my soul," he said of making the band's 1995 debut. "The intention of this band from day one has always been to keep the ball rolling: as musicians, as human beings, as friends. To feel like life keeps moving forward. We still feel like that every time we make a record - every time we step on stage. We feel like life is moving forward and that we're not looking back." Read more here.

U2 Release Acoustic 'You're The Best Thing About Me'

(Radio.com) U2's hotly anticipated Songs of Experience drops in December and the band are hard at work promoting "You're the Best Thing About Me," its lead single. Late last week the band released an acoustic version of the song.

During a recent Tonight Show appearance, Bono and the Edge described the song's exuberance in the face of tough political times. Bono compared its tone to that of Motown or the "punk Supremes."

"It's defiant joy, we call it," he said. "It's a love song to my Mrs., and in these difficult times it's important to tell your loved ones how you feel." the Edge added, "I think, maybe even more important than ever in these times, it's important to have that joy because that's the best response."

Listen to their acoustic version of "You're the Best Thing About Me" here.

Noel Gallagher Album To Feature Paul Weller and Johnny Marr

(Gibson) Noel Gallagher has announced his confirmed his new album, Who Built the Moon?, for a November 24 release. The album also features friends and fellow British rock vets Paul Weller (playing organ on "Holy Mountain") and Johnny Marr (playing guitar and harmonica on "If Love Is The Law").

Although again credited to Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, his "band" is fluid. Previous High Flying Birds Jeremy Stacey (drums) and Tim Smith (guitars) have left. They are replaced by former Oasis members, Chris Sharrock and Gem Archer respectively. Gallagher himself plays electric and acoustic guitars and also bass on the album. Despite the presence of former Oasis members, Gallagher has told BBC 6 Music that it's a very different record to anything he's released before, either with Oasis or his two previous solo albums. It was mostly written in the studio and is more experimental and loop based: "We couldn't have made this record in Oasis," Gallagher said, "there would have been bedlam."

"People are going to be surprised," said co-producer and DJ David Holmes, in a statement. "I think people love Noel and they're desperate for him to make a really big, bold, up-tempo beast of a record - a lot of Noel's music is quite mid-tempo. This one is fun."

Brother Liam Gallagher has been unable to resist his usual Twitter broadsides at his elder brother, about the album's "experimental" tag and its line-up of guests.

"Psychedelic music by a beige drip is like a vegetarian trying to sell you a kebab as you were," Liam wrote on Twitter. "It takes more than wheeling out your old mate Uri Geller [that will be Paul Weller, apparently] and Har Mar Superstar [Johnny Marr] to make a so-called out there record snoozer as you were." Liam Gallagher's solo debut, As You Were, is out October 6. Read more here.

Stone Temple Pilots Unbox 25th Anniversary Core Reissue

(hennemusic) The surviving members of Stone Temple Pilots - bassist Robert DeLeo, guitarist Dean DeLeo and drummer Eric Kretz - unbox the Super Deluxe Edition of the 25th anniversary reissue of their debut album, "Core", in a newly-released video.

While reviewing the package, the three reminisce about their late frontman, Scott Weiland, who passed away in 2015 from an accidental overdose while on tour with his band.

"This is a very telling photograph here," says Dean about an image of the band in a group hug featured in the set that sees Weiland looking directly at the camera. "Wow, it just breaks my heart that the guy who such a huge part of this is not here to celebrate it with us. We miss you, Scott."

Limited to 15,000 copies worldwide, the 4CD/1DVD/1LP Super Deluxe Edition delivers a newly-remastered version of the original record, plus more than two hours of unreleased demos and live performances. The set also features the original album on vinyl and a DVD that contains a 5.1 Surround Sound Mix along with videos for the album's four singles: "Sex Type Thing", "Plush", "Wicked Garden" and "Creep."

A 2CD Deluxe Version contains a newly-remastered version of the original album expanded with rare b-sides and previously unreleased demos, while a single disc remaster of the original album is available, as well. The packages have been issued 25 years to the day of the original record's release. Watch the video here.

Black Veil Brides Announce New Album 'VALE' Share First Single

(Radio.com) By Scott T. Sterling

Break out your black leather, Black Veil Brides are coming. The band has revealed that its long-awaited fifth studio album, VALE, is set to arrive on Jan. 12.

"We cannot wait for the BVB army to hear VALE in its entirety! In my opinion, this record is the most complete and exciting album we have done to date," said singer Andy Biersack in a press statement.

"The opportunity to work with [producer] John Feldmann once again over the course of the past 2 years creating VALE was an incredible experience and I am thrilled with the collection of songs we have put together as a band. The Latin translation of VALE is 'be well, be strong!' and central to the message of this record. We hope to continue to inspire our fans and friends to embrace their own individuality and inner strength."

Biersack went on to explain the new album's meaning, and how it fits into the rest of the band's catalog. "The central narrative once again finds 'The Wild Ones' characters facing the challenge of moving on from the pain and anguish of their past and looking to a new chapter in their lives," he revealed. "This concept is one that is near to my heart and I believe will resonate with those that find themselves cast on the fringe of society. From our inception Black Veil Brides have stood up for the outcasts and disenfranchised, with this album as hope to give you hope, fun and most importantly a kick ass rock and roll record."

The new album announcement came with a track from the set, "My Vow." Listen to the fiery new tune below, which contains explicit language, here.

David Gilmour Releases Live 'Run Like Hell' Video

(hennemusic) David Gilmour is streaming video of his performance of the 1979 Pink Floyd classic, "Run Like Hell", from his newly-released "Live At Pompeii" concert film.

The tune was the second single issued from "The Wall", which topped the Billboard 200 chart for 15 weeks on its way to US sales of more than 11 million copies.

Directed by Gavin Elder, "Live At Pompeii" features Gilmour's 2016 concerts in support of 2015's "Rattle That Lock" at the ancient Roman amphitheatre, which marked his return to the site 45 years after he first played there for Adrian Maben's classic film, "Pink Floyd Live At Pompeii."

"I know how he likes to be portrayed," Elder tells Billboard about his latest project with the guitarist. "It's editing it with a musicality that enhances everyone's performance and captures the subtlety as well as the spectacle -- real subtle nuances that I think bring the personality to the performance.

So what I'm after is the little looks, the little smiles, the little acknowledgements between the band members that it's all happening and they're all on fire. It's a collaboration of coming together and we're really there just to capture what they're doing and capture the majesty of the moment."

The 2017 project is now available on 2-CD, Blu-ray, 2-DVD, 4-LP, deluxe Blu-ray box and digital download. Watch the video

Elton John Announces 'Diamonds' Compilation

(Radio.com) The classics never go out of style. Elton John is set to revisit his greatest hit with a robust new compilation, Diamonds, set for release on Nov. 10.

Diamonds will be available across multiple formats, including double-vinyl LP in a gatefold cover and a limited edition triple-disc box set loaded with extras, including a 72-page hardcover book, postcards, and additional songs deemed "personal favorites curated by Elton himself."

"We are at 50 years, and our relationship is healthier than it's ever been," John said in a press statement. "There have been times in our relationship when we've written with other people, but it still didn't stop the love. I love [loing time collaborator and lyricist] Bernie [Taupin] more than I've ever done and I think he probably feels the same way about me, because we've both led separate lives; we both write in separate rooms. We have an amazing respect and love for each other that's only grown."

"We still get a kick out of what we do; it's what we do - when we come together and write something, it still has that magical quality to it - it doesn't get any better than that," shared Taupin. "That feeling hasn't aged." Check out the full tracklisting for Diamonds here.

Pearl Jam Play Rooftop Set On Let's Play Two Concert Film

(hennemusic) Pearl Jam can be seen jamming on the rooftop of a bar outside of Chicago's Wrigley Field in a clip from their newly-released concert film "Let's Play Two."

The video also features comments from diehard fans, some of who travelled a great distance to attend the rare event in one of baseball's legendary venues. "My wife and I came from Sydney, Australia," says one fan. "For this trip - 10,000 miles each way - and I think our tally, by the time we get home this time, for all Pearl Jam shows will be 250,000 miles between us. It's worth it every time."

Directed by Danny Clinch, the project captures footage from the final two shows of the band's 2016 North American tour. The film's title pays tribute to the late Cubs great Ernie Banks, who shared his love of the game with his legendary catchphrase: "It's a beautiful day for a ballgame…let's play two!"

Available on vinyl, CD and digital formats, the project's soundtrack album delivers 17-songs from the Wrigley Field concerts, including the 2016 tour debut of the "Lost Dogs" rarity, "Black Red Yellow", a cover of The Beatles' "I've Got A Feeling", and Vedder's ode to the Chicago Cubs, "All The Way."

"Let's Play Two" will see its US television debut October 13 on FS1 immediately following Game 1 of the American League Championship Series, ahead of its official release on November 17. Watch the video
