Today's Day in Rock Stories
The band launched the new tour leg in Philadelphia, PA at the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday night and will continue with the second show of the trek tonight (October 11th) at Madison Square Garden.
They will be playing two additional shows at the famed New York City venue and have announced dates across the continent before wrapping up on November 29th in Inglewood (Los Angeles, CA) at The Forum. See the dateshere.
Mustaine took to his band's official Facebook page with the following message for fans, "On behalf of Megadeth, I want to express our deepest gratitude to the Scorpions for this amazing opportunity to tour with our heroes.To the fans, old and new, who came out to see these amazing shows, we thank you profusely and hope you dug it as much as we did.
"Of course to the Scorpions, and their legendary singer Klaus Meine's, whose health and well being is a 'top priority' to all of us, we wish him and his bandmates the very best. If there's ever a chance to share the stage again with the Scorpions again, we'll be there!"
Despite small steps forward in their personal relationship, Sambora has remained on the outs with the band over the last four years. That might change, Sambora says, if Bon Jovi is finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
"Sure. Of course, why not [perform at the induction]?" Sambora told Billboard. "There's not a lot of malice there, you know. I mean, there's just — it was just time for me to leave at that point. So yeah, of course."
Sambora added that he'd like to play "Livin' on a Prayer" and "Wanted Dead or Alive" should they earn the recognition. This year, Bon Jovi are nominated alongside Eurythmics, Radiohead, Depeche Mode, Rage Against the Machine and others. They were previously nominated and passed up for the honor in 2011.

The video stars actor Johnny Depp alongside Manson, and it's a nonstop orgy of sex, blood and rock & roll. When we say the clip is NSFW, we really mean it.
The promo clip is packed with nudity, highly-charged sexual imagery and Manson cavorting in gallons of blood. Watch Marilyn Manson's video for "Say10"here.
The pair are taking on the mountain to raise money for Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Southampton Hospital in the U.K. The eight-day and 16,000 ft. charity climb was inspired after Fish and his wife's son Eliot suffered a brain hemorrhage and had to be rushed to hospital's pediatric care unit.
"While in [the] hospital I decided that I would focus myself on doing something positive for the ward and trying to raise enough money to pay for a new bed for them," Fish explained. "Oli asked immediately if he could join me and help raise as much awareness for this cause as possible." Read morehere.
I remember the time we had phones that weren't an extension of our body. Where our sense of well being was not determined by how many likes we had received. I recognise this feeling after a post has gone up and I am picking up my phone every minute to see if anyone has found the post or the pic inspiring, meaningful, funny...I feel the addiction take hold. I beg for real relationships where the other persons voice is audible, where they are tangible and the emotions are real.'
ALL IN NOW was written after I had a personal fight with social media. Where I couldn't sleep because I thought no-one liked me. How ridiculous right?! Who gives a sh*t if you only get 50 likes on your photo!!! How shallow can I be? As a person who doesn't have many close friends because of having been brought up as a child in many countries, and having continued the trend way into adulthood, where moving home was moving countries, out of sight became out of mind. This interconnectivity that was available to me because of social media was incredible at first because I got a chance to see how my childhood friends had grown in an instant and those friends across oceans were suddenly alive and well on my phone. But then it just wasn't enough, I didn't feel whole. I constantly craved for connection. So I guess ALL IN NOW was my plea to the world to keep ourselves open to each other. And not think that social media is enough to actually keep us connected.
Prog based, non conforming, harder music is not for everyone. But I found that the complexity and heaviness took me out of myself and gave me a reason to write about a situation like the one above in an soft and abstract way. With melody and lyric holding long straight notes over harmonies writing with the Ascending Dawn project was an outlet for so much of what I felt going on around me. I could be express it without sounding stupid. Maybe it is in the complexity of the music that reflects how layered we are as humans.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the albumright here!
The project sold 84,000 units - a 2,231 percent increase from the week prior - including 52,000 in traditional album sales. "Greatest Hits" initially peaked at No. 5 in February of 1994, following its release the previous year.

Buckingham McVie issued their self-titled debut in June, a project that originated from a series of studio sessions in 2014 after McVie reunited with Fleetwood Mac for dates on their On With The Show tour.
The pair recorded eight tunes with Fleetwood Mac's rhythm section of Mick Fleetwood and John McVie before resuming the group's world tour, and returned to the studio to complete the project at the end of last year.
"We were exploring a creative process, and the identity of the project took on a life organically," explains Buckingham. "The body of work felt like it was meant to be a duet album. We acknowledged that to each other on many occasions, and said to ourselves, 'What took us so long?!'"here.
"Why don't you have a drink with me. Cheers!", says Coverdale in a video posted on his social media sites. "Here I Go Again" first appeared on Whitesnake's 1982 album, "Saints & Sinners", before it was re-recorded for the 1987 project, which went on to US sales of more than 8 million copies and Top 5 chart status in several countries around the world.
An early draft of the tune is featured on the just-released multiple editions of an expanded 30th anniversary reissue of the self-titled album. The song is featured on a disc entitled "Evolutions 87", which delivers a series of demos and rehearsal takes of every song from the original record. Watch the anniversary videohere.

New liner notes contain interviews with band members. We were
During the British Invasion, there was another Liverpool band topping the charts worldwide. The Searchers had 11 Top 40 hits between 1963 and 1966 in the U.K., including three #1s with "Needles and Pins," "Sweets for My Sweet," and "Don't Throw Our Love Away." There were eight hits in the U.S. including a #3 cover of "Love Potion No. 9." By the end of the decade, the group's chart presence may have slowed down, but the Searchers didn't. They continued to hone their sound on the live circuit, adding a modern musical crunch to their incredible harmonies. After seeing the band perform, Sire Records head Seymour Stein offered them a home on his new wave flagship label (home of the Ramones, Talking Heads, Dead Boys, and soon, Pretenders).
The Searchers returned in 1979 with a self-titled release, featuring originals and covers of tracks from Tom Petty, The Records, Bob Dylan, and the Mickey Jupp-penned "Switchboard Susan"-a concurrent hit for Nick Lowe. Produced by Pat Moran (Be Bop Deluxe, Dr. Feelgood, and Rush -yes, that Rush), it was a sonic powerhouse. That album was followed the next year by Love's Melodies (titled Play for Today in the U.K.), with Ed Stasium (Ramones, Talking Heads, Smithereens) joining Moran as co-producer. More originals, and more covers (Big Star, John Fogerty, and others), and another great album. Read morehere.
Following the appearance, Gallagher made amends to the host after referring to him as "a knobhead" during an interview with British GQ earlier this year. "On the late late show tonight and I've just bumped into the host James Corden," tweeted the rocker. "I gotta say he's a fine chap got that 1 wrong", and later adding, "I'm the first to admit it James Corden was a good man to my boys last night."
"Wall Of Glass" is the lead single from the Oasis frontman's just-released debut solo album, "As You Were." The project was produced by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beck) and Dan Grech-Marguerat (Radiohead, Mumford And Sons). Watch the late night TV performancehere.
The strummy campfire feel of Pablo Honey, the weepy The Bends and the quasi-psychedelic In Rainbows corresponded to iconic moments in the kids' animated series.
YouTuber Heliophobia skillfully matched all nine studio albums (including their latest, A Moon Shaped Pool) to unforgettable Spongebob moments and when he finally saw it, Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood gave his emphatic approval.
"Each Radiohead album described with Spongebob is perfect in so many ways…" he tweeted. Read more, watch the video and see Greenwood's feedback here:

She had the following to say about the Corey Lowery produced track and its accompanying video, "'All Around The World' is really about feeling like it's you against the world, and racing against time.
It's about the pressures to succeed in such a short amount of time, people thinking they know best, and are lost in their own worlds, only concerned about themselves. In this rat race we all live in today, it's getting harder and harder to break through, even if you work your ass off. The song is upbeat, kind of a more pop punk ish vibe.
"The music video was done by Industrialism Films, whom I have worked on other music videos with (Monster, Left For Dead). It's a really cool concept about the monitored world today and how we as people forget how to function or get out of our own heads because of it.
"People are constantly being monitored by someone all around the world. However each person seems to live in their own technologically created world inside their head. People no longer interact. It doesn't matter where on the planet you live, everyone is really being the same. Someone's always watching us, yet we're living within ourselves, not paying attention to anything but our own lives." Watch the videohere.
We were sent the following details: This marks the first recorded collaboration between these two musical titans and arrives on Grisman's own Acoustic Disc record label.
Known for his virtuosic fretwork, fiery fingerpicking, and airtight songcraft, Emmanuel continually shreds through boundaries with his acoustic guitar on these 12 new songs. Not only does PICKIN' reflect his signature classical, Americana, folk, and roots stylings, but it also artfully merges jazz rhythms, jamming, and unpredictability in the mix. Among many standouts, his playing seamlessly entwines with Grisman's mandolin during the first single "Tipsy Gypsy" as nimble picking converges on hypnotic hummable melodies. Meanwhile, "Cinderella's Fella" swings from a brusque and galloping opening into a passionate and poignant pastiche of harmonious technicality. See the tracklisting
