When comparing rock and hip-hop in terms of groups and bands, Chuck stated, "The group was the only thing that made hip-hop even competitive to the rock world in the first place. But the minute that you started taking the DNA of the thing that worked, it's the guy and the mic - the guy is Kanye and just Kanye and nothing else - it started shooting down hip-hop as being a legitimate genre and being more of a spectacle.
"I think it was a disgrace that individual came into the talk of the genre. So the whole thing of 'Me, me, I, I" has really brought it down to the point where people feel they have no power 'cause they're not connected. Hard to bring it up as an individual - that's why collectives work." Read more here.
The alleged charges include one count of attempted second degree murder and four counts of criminal possession of a weapon, according to the report. It is important to note that he has not been charged with murder.
"Nothing in this indictment is a surprise or new," Troy's attorney Scott Leemon told Billboard. "It's the same wrong story that NYPD has been trying to portray.
"The video does not show everything nor explain what happened in the VIP room before Troy came running out, as a victim, after he was shot." Read more here.
"I love being part of the Sunday Night Football family and can't wait for the fans to hear the new theme song," Underwood said, according to a press release.
"Earlier this offseason, Carrie said she had a special idea for a new SNF open song. When we got into the recording studio in Nashville, the song instantly came to life, and will be a dynamic addition to our show," said SNF Executive Producer Fed Gaudelli.
The song may sound familiar to Underwood's fans. It's set to the music of her 2014 hit with Miranda Lambert "Somethin' Bad." She worked closely with the song's writers, Chris DeStefano, Brett James, and Priscilla Renea, to rewrite it as a football themed tune. Read more here.
He had to undergo major surgery in February last year, and spent more than six months recuperating - and he admits he felt like he'd let his bandmates down because they had to postpone work on 11th album The Getaway.
Flea says he was travelling at over 50mph when he lost control and landed on his arm. But despite being offered the use of a medical sled to get off the mountain, he insisted on snowboarding to the bottom.
He tells Rolling Stone: "I was so bummed. I felt like I'd let everybody down, because we couldn't record, but we'd written all our stuff. I was just really, really sad."
Flea retains a metal screw in his left elbow. "I had a long rehab process, I got better, and now I'm totally back on top," he reports. "I was worried I'd never play bass again - but luckily I'm rockin'." Read more here.
The trio confirmed last month that they'd joined forces under the banner of Anderson, Rabin & Wakeman (ARW) and revealed they were working on an album and announced a run of North American shows.
The trio last collaborated during Yes' Union tour. Anderson said: "To be able to sing and perform with Rick and Trevor at this time in my life is a treasure beyond words.
"I'm so excited to create new music and revisit some of the classic work we created many years ago. It's going to be a musical adventure on so many new levels." See the tour dates here.
Rollins takes on equal rights for women, proper care for military veterans, gun control and animal rights - among other topics. Seemingly annoyed at the poor use of grammar in the sentence, 'It's opener there in the wide open air,' Rollins says: "You're getting kids at a formative age and you're teaching them to speak poorly. That's okay if you wanna be in congress, but it's not working for me."
Picking up on another part of the story in which a character's friends leave him behind in the wild, Rollins says: "What are we teaching children with this? Loyalty? Helpfulness? No, when one of your friends lags behind - screw 'em.
"Just move on and realize your own destiny. But don't worry, he's a rugged American. He'll be fine. Hopefully he's got a gun stuffed in there somewhere." See the entire video here.
Head tells HardDrive Radio: "I would definitely describe the new Korn music as intense. I was telling someone earlier that we wrote this record thinking about what Korn was when we first started.
"I think we've learned how to write songs - we can write good songs a lot. But what is Korn? We started this band thinking of the live shows and what the crowd would do with us. How can we connect with the crowd? And we would write songs thinking like that.
"So this new record, it was all about, 'What's going to happen when we play this song?' What's going to happen when we play this riff? And that's the new record. It's just intense." Read more here.
He says: "I'm personally looking for some programmers who use c#. I am in the Unity community and working on a very creative project. I only like working with like-minded people who dream like me."
I'm not interested in people who do not understand art. If you dream and can program and want to be a part of something special that I'm creating, then hit me up at email@example.com" Read more here.
PFM drummer and vocalist Franz Di Cioccio previously told Hit Channel: "PFM were the first who tried to go out of Italy and we made musical choices that were successful - and we had already played too much.
He continues: "We were session players and we played for five years. We were very experienced and very ready to do albums and tours. When we released Per Un Amico in 1972, it was the first and only time that an Italian band was on a Billboard chart. I'm very proud of this. We showed that we weren't successful only in Italy, but in the whole world." See the tour dates here.
He tells Rolling Stone: "I think there's quite a bit on the record that's kind of unflinchingly looking at getting older. And it's nice, because I think a lot of rock bands aren't very honest about that. They all want to exist in some universe where they're perpetually between the ages of 21 and 35. We're codgers - we're not afraid to admit it."
The record also sheds light on the past 12 years since their last album, 2004's Cool To Be You. The songs cover real-life topics such as marital problems, child ADHD medication and a variety of health issues the band members have faced. Read more here.
"For All Kings" debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 earlier this year with opening week sales of 34,000 units. The record also debuted at No. 2 on Billboard's Top Rock Albums chart, No. 2 on the Independent Albums chart, No. 4 on the Physical Albums chart, and at No. 5 on the Vinyl Albums chart.
The album was previewed with the track "Evil Twin" ahead of its release and has since seen "Breathing Lightning" and "Blood Eagle Wings" issued as singles. Watch the video here.
It's to be released on September 23, just before the band launch a North American tour, followed by UK and European dates. Hogarth says: "We've used 'F E A R' as a title with some relish, but only as it shows we haven't shied away. It's said with sadness. There are two basic impulses behind human behaviour - love and fear. All the good stuff comes from love."
Hogarth adds: "We use the amazing privilege of having both a platform and an audience to encourage people to look in the mirror and ask themselves the big questions - by doing just that ourselves." Read more here.
"Last fall, I went through a miscarriage," the singer told GMA. As she wrote the songs Scott said she was "experiencing everything that comes with a miscarriage. So it was my most raw place that I could've ever been when this song truly poured out of me."
Hillary's new album Love Remains is scheduled to be released on July 29th. In the meantime, fans can watch her new music video for the song "Thy Will" here.
Speaking with the New York Post, Koppelman said there are "vaults of music." Beyond releasing albums and individual songs, though, he could envision mounting a Broadway musical or even developing a Cirque du Soleil-type show like the 2006 show Love, which featured reinterpreted music from The Beatles.
"Prince was an icon on the level of The Beatles and Michael Jackson, and his legacy should be honored," Koppelman said. 'Though his name was Prince, I always thought he was the king of music." Read more here.
The Compton rapper gets a little NSFW in the song, which details a special relationship he had with a lady in the past and all the ways they enjoyed each other's company. The Game apparently doesn't mind kissing and telling because he name drops the song's subject towards the end. "You want me to say your name, huh?" he asks on the track.
Jeremih winds his voice around the verses. "I'm a beast, uh huh/ Can you tame me?" he sings, hinting that even though things are great at the moment he will eventually let his lady down. The pressures of fame and all that.
The Game explained the song's title all while remaining ambiguous. "I feel like no matter where I go, they're always watching," he said, according to the press release. Listen to "All Eyez" here.
He may look like a grandfather in the 30 second spot, but don't put anything past Past. He's got the skills to drop a sick rhyme. In fact, according to him, he taught Future everything he knows.
Foxx as Past raps about how happy he is to have Verizon as a network provider, so much so that he'll throw down with anyone who uses another company. 'I got Verizon/See me on the street, you walk up to me/ You got AT&T, we fightin."
Everything in the commercial parodies Future, from the track's beat to the way Foxx raps to his hairstyle. If Past will be Verizon's new character moving forward, viewers can look forward to many more visits with Future's daddy and his hip to be square moves. Watch the commercial here.
