Guns N' Roses Joined By Surprise Guest At Madison Square Garden

(hennemusic) Guns N' Roses were joined by pop singer Pink for a performance of their 1989 hit, "Patience", at Madison Square Garden in New York on October 11, and the band are sharing video from the concert.

"Thank you @Pink for joining us on stage to sing Patience tonight!," posted the group on Twitter after the show. The first of three nights at the legendary venue is part of the fall North American leg of the band's Not In This Lifetime tour, which opened in Philadelphia, PA on October 8.

Launched in the spring of 2016, the global trek sees the reunited trio of Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan playing classic tracks and covers each night. The tour made headlines last week when it was announced Guns N' Roses had earned $53 million from their 15-show summer run of North American stadiums to bring the tour's revenue to more than $200 million in 2017 and $300 million since it began. Watch the Pink and GNR jam here.

Linkin Park Stream Carpool Karaoke Featuring Chester Bennington

(hennemusic) Linkin Park are streaming their appearance on Apple Music's "Carpool Karaoke" series featuring their late bandmate Chester Bennington. The episode - with the group's Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn and actor Ken Jeong - was filmed less than a week before Bennington committed suicide at the age of 41 on July 20.

"With the blessing of Chester's family and his bandmates," notes Apple Music in the opening credits, "we share this episode, and dedicate it to the memory of Chester. This was taped July 14, 2017."

Bennington takes the wheel for the musical ride, which sees the foursome sing along to Linkin Park hits and classics from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Aerosmith and Lynyrd Skynyrd, among others.

Linkin Park will honor their late frontman with a sold-out tribute concert at the Hollywood Bowl on October 27. Among the guests set to perform are Avenged Sevenfold, Bring Me The Horizon, Blink-182, Korn, Machine Gun Kelly and System Of A Down. Watch the video here.

Led Zeppelin's John Bonham To Receive Hometown Honor

(hennemusic) The late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham will be honored with a statue in his hometown of Redditch, UK. The Redditch Advertiser reports plans for the tribute were given the go-ahead at an October 11 Redditch Council meeting after years of hard work and fundraising by The John Bonham Memorial Fund, formed in 2013 to raise cash for a permanent memorial.

The bulk of the funds for the statue, by renowned British sculptor Mark Richards, have been raised by a private donation. A large bronze memorial depicting the Led Zeppelin drummer will be built in the town's Mercian Square.

It is expected the statue will be revealed before what would have been the drummer's 70th birthday in May of next year. "How absolutely thrilled I am that this is happening in Redditch," the late drummer's sister, Deborah Bonham, tells the BBC. "We just got planning permission, so I'm absolutely thrilled; we're going to have a John Bonham memorial. Brilliant." Read more here.

The Eagles To Rock The Grand Ole Opry

(Gibson) The Eagles have announced their first-ever appearance at the iconic Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville. Set for October 29, the invitation-only concert is being staged exclusively for SiriusXM, which is offering subscribers a chance to win an expenses-paid trip to the event.

Only recently did the Eagles resume doing live shows, following the death of co-founder Glenn Frey. Frey's son, Deacon, and Opry member Vince Gill are sharing vocal duties on material written and formerly performed by Frey.

"The Eagles performing at the Grand Ole Opry House will be an unforgettable evening and SiriusXM is the perfect partner for this event," said Eagles manager Irving Azoff, in a prepared statement. Read more here.

Robert Plant Talks Current Relationship With Led Zeppelin

(Radio.com) Robert Plant continues to resist a reunion with the remaining members of Led Zeppelin, and he's perfectly fine with it. Plant spoke on the current state of his old band during an interview with the New York Times while discussing his new solo album, Carry Fire.

The singer explained that he sees guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist/keyboard player John Paul Jones "from time to time, and it's very civil. "We're enthusiastic toward each other, and each of us does our own things, and that's how it is."

The article points out that the last time the three living members of Led Zeppelin (drummer John Bonham died in 1980) spent any considerable time together, it was during the 2016 lawsuit directed at their legendary song, "Stairway to Heaven." The band was accused of cribbing the tune from Spirit's 'Taurus." A jury ruled in Zeppelin's favor. Read about that here.

Singled Out: Jason Heath and The Greedy Souls

Jason Heath and The Greedy Souls released their new album "But There's Nowhere To Go" today (October 13th). To celebrate we asked Jason to tell us about the song "Nowhere To Go". Here is the story:

So originally the album was gonna be titled "Broken Promised Land," but as we were working on it, I began to see that there were other artists that had used that title for songs and albums so I was beginning to consider alternative titles for the record. The cover art was a picture I took of a large wall near my mechanic's shop in Los Angeles that had the Dead End sign on it. An unknown street artist had put up a bill that said "But There's Nowhere To Go" with an arrow pointing toward the sign. I posted the cover art with the album title "Broken Promised Land" and my friend Tom Morello (yes, thatTom Morello) commented that "But There's Nowhere To Go" was a pretty good name for an album as well. So I tried it on for size but wasn't totally convinced. The album was pretty much done, and one day I was messing with this riff in one of the songwriting classes I teach in prison for Jail Guitar Doors (jailguitardoors.org). I started singing, "There's nowhere to go…" over the progression and one of the inmates said, "Man, that's tight," and he came over to put a beat to it. We rocked it for a few minutes, and he told me I needed to record it and put it on the record. I wasn't sure because it felt like more of a punk tune, but it felt good when the band started in on it, and then Justin added that guitar line and it pretty much put it over the top for me. We recorded it that weekend, so the entire tune was conceived, written and recorded in about a week.

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

Nikki Sixx Ending His Sixx Sense Radio Show

(hennemusic) Motley Crue and Sixx:AM bassist Nikki Sixx has announced plans to step down as host of, and end, his syndicated rock radio programs "Sixx Sense With Nikki Sixx", "The Side Show Countdown With Nikki Sixx" and "The Side Show Classic With Nikki Sixx" at the end of this year, with his final broadcast set for December 31, 2017.

Launched in 2010, Sixx Sense quickly became the biggest syndicated rock show in America, distributed to more than 130 stations nationwide and reaching nearly 3 million global weekly listeners.

"I grew up discovering music on the radio," says Sixx. "So to host my own show over the nearly eight years of Sixx Sense was beyond my wildest dreams. I could not have done it without my amazing team in the studio, or the guests, musicians, and listeners that brought the show to life.

"It's been an inspirational journey and I'll always be a fan of the medium, but it's time to shift gears outside the realm of solely radio. I'm in the process of developing new and unique programming and ventures across multiple platforms. But I'm really gonna miss Sixx Sense."

Sixx is stepping down from his radio career to focus on several new endeavours in 2018, including his photography career, television projects and the Broadway adaptation of his New York Times bestselling memoir "The Heroin Diaries: A Year In The Life Of A Shattered Rockstar." Read more here.
