|Tool Tour for Xmas?|
Billboard reported several months ago that TOOL is mulling the idea of making a band movie. Guitarist Adam Jones said, "We all have ideas about it. If I had my way, it would be a narrative story in a surreal fashion with as much money and special effects as we could throw at it...It's just talk right now."
PUSCIFER, the side project of TOOL frontman Maynard James Keenan, will release its debut album, "V Is for Vagina", on October 30 via Puscifer Entertainment.

|The Real Tuesday Weld Soundchecked|
The London Book of The Dead may sound at first like a startlingly morose title, but in fact it's more whimsically humorous than morbid. It refers to the Bardo Thodol (or "Tibetan Book of The Dead"), which describes the passage of the soul from the end of one life to the beginning of another. "I thought it would be funny if there were a book like that for the English," says Coates. "The album felt like that to me – a way of moving from one state to another, and all set against the backdrop of this city."- more including the link to the performance

Eric Clapton is a living legend, recognized as the most accomplished and influential guitarist in the history of rock. He is a sixteen-time Grammy winner and the only triple inductee into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (as a member of both the Yardbirds and Cream and as a solo artist). A Cream reunion in 2005 played four sold-out concerts at London's Royal Albert Hall and three more at Madison Square Garden. A full-scale retrospective of Clapton's career is planned for the spring of 2007. - more on this story

|The Payola Reserve America Roots on the Road This Roctober|
"It's time to wake up, America! It's okay to love tradition, but don't let your love for roots rock and Americana music stay mired in the past. On The Payola Reserve's blistering new DIY album 200 Years, the Baltimore band pays homage to its folk rock heroes (Bob Dylan, Neil Young, The Band), but brings the genre right into the 2000s with incisive, straight to the gut songwriting and the intense, sarcastic energy of their live shows. All of this bodes well for the genre's future. That is, if lead singer Ben Pranger could get off the freewheeling apocalyptic trip he's on"

|Piano Men Charity|
A first of its kind collaboration between Steinway and Sons, renowned marquetry artist Silas Kopf, an impressive group of well-known popular and classical recording artists, and two compelling charities (the Walden Woods Project and American Forests) has resulted in the creation of a unique collector's item – the Walden Woods Art Case Piano. The Model D concert grand will be auctioned by Christie's at a fundraising event in Manhattan on October 4th with the goal of securing a minimum bid of $500,000.
The plate of the piano has been signed, and the piano has been played, by an extraordinary group of artists including Elton John, Emanuel Ax, Dave Brubeck, Herbie Hancock, Bruce Hornsby, Barbara Nissman, Evgeny Kissin and Billy Joel. Billy Joel will play the Walden Steinway during his performance at the fundraiser/auction. Don Henley will also perform, as will classical pianist Barbara Nissman. - more on this story
