The Eagles Expand Hotel California For Anniversary Reissues

(hennemusic) The Eagles have announced that they will release a series of expanded 40th anniversary editions of their 1976 album classic, "Hotel California", on November 24th.

With more than 32 million copies sold worldwide, the project ranks as one of the best-selling albums of all time. The record - which delivered two US No. 1 singles ("New Kid In Town" and the title track) - topped the Billboard 200 for eight weeks and won two Grammy Awards.

The "Hotel California: 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition" is a new 2-CD/1-Blu-ray Audio package that includes remastered sound, ten previously unreleased live recordings from the era, as well as hi-res stereo and 5.1 mixes. Presented in an 11 x 11 hardbound book, the set also features rare and unseen photos, a replica tour book, and an 11 x 22 poster.

The set also marks the debut of ten live tracks that were recorded during the band's three-night stand at the Los Angeles Forum in October 1976. The concert recordings - which were recorded about a month before the album came out - feature one of the first ever live performances of "Hotel California" and "New Kid In Town", along with other Eagles classics including "Already Gone", "Take It To The Limit" and "Witchy Woman."

The Blu-ray Audio disc features the 5.1 Surround Sound mix originally released on DVD-A in 2001 along with a hi-resolution, 192 KHz/24-Bit stereo mix.

The 40th anniversary set will also be available as a 2CD Expanded Edition and a single CD offering, alongside digital download and streaming versions. Read more here.

Foreigner Reveal Jukebox Hero: The Musical Plans

(hennemusic) Foreigner will launch "Jukebox Hero: The Musical" in the summer of 2018. Produced by Annerin Theatricals, the project is billed as "a coming of age saga written to the music of Foreigner" and is based on the screenplay written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais ("The Commitments", "Across The Universe" and "The Tracey Ullman TV Show").

"Jukebox Hero" is set in Blaydon, PA, a rust-belt town dependent on one main industry. The story starts with the closure of its biggest factory and the plight of its now unemployed workforce. The town seeks the help of Blaydon's most famous son, music superstar Ryan, but returning to Blaydon doesn't just mean revisiting a town where he's become a stranger; it means confronting the ghosts of his past.

As part of Foreigner's ongoing 40th anniversary celebration, the musical will feature the band's 16 Top 30 hit songs, including "I Want To Know What Love Is", "Cold As Ice", "Waiting For A Girl Like You", "Hot Blooded" and more.

"Jukebox Hero: The Musical" will premiere in Calgary, AB on August 10 - 12, 2018 at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium before playing Edmonton, AB on August 16 - 19, 2018 at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium.

"I never could have imagined when I set out to create Foreigner forty years ago, that we'd still be touring around the world and performing the music we love all these years later," said founding member and lead guitarist Mick Jones. "I am so proud that these songs will now be reinterpreted for stage, and am honored by the team that is helping bring this music to life. I can't express the gratitude I feel when fans share stories of how our songs have been woven into their milestones and memories over the years.

"I had so many great times with Foreigner in Canada and I look forward to bringing the band back here for our 40th anniversary tour. I'm thrilled that Canada will see the world premiere of our brand-new musical, Jukebox Hero, in 2018." Read more here.

Chris Stapleton Covers Tom Petty's 'Learning to Fly'

(Radio.com) As artist tributes to the late rock legend Tom Petty continue to pour in, country star Chris Stapleton has added his own into the mix. Stapleton was performing in Moline, IL, last week (Oct. 5) when he rolled out a version of Petty's 1991 hit, "Learning to Fly."

"I had the opportunity to play with Tom Petty earlier this year and the last thing he said to me was, 'I hope we get an opportunity to do this again,'" Stapleton explained to the crowd before playing his somber reworking of the tune.

"And I left there thinking that we might. And I sure am sad that I won't get to." Watch fan footage of Chris Stapleton's live take on "Learning to Fly" here.

Singled Out: Bigfoot's Tell Me a Lie

Hard rockers Bigfoot are releasing their self-titled debut album this Friday (Oct 13th). To celebrate we asked guitarist Sam Millar to tell us about the song "Tell Me a Lie". Here is the story:

Our latest single 'Tell Me a Lie' was written musically before any lyrics or vocal melody were introduced which is strange as we usually have a chorus idea or something vocally to work with before anything starts. Musically we were very influenced by the likes of Extreme, Aerosmith and a lot of those groovy rock bands.

We had this energetic track and we just knew it had to be about partying or something along those lines because that's how the song felt. So myself and Tom got together to write some lyrics and it ended up taking a slightly different turn to what we had expected and lyrically not the most upbeat and happy subject.

Basically the song is about self destruction. Everyone has a friend or someone they know that always gets way too drunk and doesn't know when to call it a night and turn in, so that's what we ended up writing the track about. 'Tell Me a Lie' as a lyric refers to the person lying to themselves that they're too drunk and need to slow down. Ok.... It's about ourselves. We never learn.

All in all it's a pretty tongue in cheek track with lots of little hooks and loads of energy that we all had loads of fun writing and recording and we can't wait to add it to our live set.

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

The Who's Roger Daltrey To Publish His Memoir

(hennemusic) Roger Daltrey of The Who has announced plans to publish his memoir in the fall of 2018. The Bookseller reports the project will be released through Henry Holt and Company in America and Blink Publishing in the United Kingdom

"It's great that I've found a young, enthusiastic publisher, an upstart in the world of books, to publish my story. It feels like the right fit," said Daltrey in a statement. "I've always resisted the urge to 'do the memoir, but now, finally, I feel I've enough perspective. When you've spent more than half a century at the epicenter of a band like The Who, perspective can be a problem. Everything happened in the moment. One minute, I'm on the factory floor in Shepherd's Bush, the next, I'm headlining Woodstock."

Daltrey has been working on the project while juggling recent world tours with The Who. "It's taken three years to unpack the events of my life," he adds, "to remember who did what when and why, to separate the myths from the reality, to unravel what really happened at the Holiday Inn on Keith Moon's 21st birthday.

"I hope the result is more than just another autobiography. I've been lucky enough to live in interesting times. I've witnessed society, music and culture change beyond recognition. That I'm still here to tell my tale when so many others around me didn't make it is nothing short of a miracle." Read more here.

Pierce The Veil Premiere 'Today I Saw The Whole World' Video

(Radio.com) Pierce The Veil have released a music video for "Today I Saw The Whole World" which their frontman reveals has an inspiration from the classic videos of the 1990s.

"I grew up watching massive amounts of MTV music videos throughout the 90's," said lead singer Vic Fuentes in a prepared statement. "I would record all of my favorites on VHS tape, watching them over and over until the tape wore out."

"Our new video was inspired by some of these artists that I loved back then like the Beastie Boys, Cypress Hill and Marilyn Manson," he continued. "We wanted to use this 90's look to visually express the lyrics and fury inside of the song." Watch the video here.

Tom DeLonge Announces 'To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science'

(Radio.com) Former Blink-182 frontman Tom DeLonge has come a long way from poop jokes. DeLonge announced the launch of the 'To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science.

It is described as "a consortium of scientists, aerospace engineers and creatives that will work collectively to allow gifted researchers the freedom to explore exotic science and technologies with the infrastructure and resources to rapidly transition innovative ideas into world-changing products and services."

"The public interest in the outer edges of science and the understanding of phenomena has always been suffocated by mainstream ideology and bureaucratic constraint," company President and CEO DeLonge explained in a press statement. "We believe there are discoveries within our reach that will revolutionize the human experience, but they can only be accomplished through the unrestricted support of breakthrough research and innovation."

To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science also shared a mission statement video, featuring DeLonge. Watch it here.

Noel Gallagher Releases New Song 'Holy Mountain'

(Gibson) It's a huge month for the Gallagher brothers. Younger brother Liam just released his debut solo album to much acclaim and now the elder Gallagher, Noel, has just released 'Holy Mountain', the raucous first single off his upcoming album Who Built The Moon.

In promoting the album, Noel promised that the new album would be "a really big, bold, up-tempo beast of a record" and the first single - featuring Paul Weller on organ - definitely checks all of those boxes. Certainly bigger and more exuberant than anything Gallagher's ever done before - either with Oasis or with his High Flying Birds band, 'Holy Mountain' is a stomping anthemic rocker.

According to a statement from Gallagher,' Holy Mountain' "was one of the first things [producer David Holmes] and I did on the first week of working together. I knew instantly that it was going to be the first single". Read more here.

Liam Gallagher Reveals John Lennon Inspired 'As You Were' Album Title

(Radio.com) For Liam Gallagher, John Lennon's influence looms well beyond his days of fronting Oasis. During an exclusive interview with KROQ-FM in Los Angeles following his set at the massive Cal Jam '17 festival, Gallagher explained how his catchphrase and solo debut album title, As You Were, was inspired by the Beatles legend.

"A lot of people say it," Gallagher said of the phrase that has become his signature sign off on Twitter. "I've been the one that kind of says it more than anyone else. John Lennon used to wear these t-shirts with 'You Are Here' [on them].

"I've always liked that. It reminds me of 'As You Were,' 'Be Here Now,' it's got that kind of thing," he adds, throwing in a reference to Oasis' 1997 album, Be Here Now. Read more here.
