Taylor tells Talk Is Jericho: "They're having a really good time. Alex, our bass player, he's so into it that he's started to kind of come up the front - really started to own it. Jay's just starting to take it up."
He adds: "It's been really, really good. It's been cool to watch them come out of their shells. At first they weren't sure how far to go - that's the respect level. They're so respectful that they don't want to cross any boundaries." Read morehere.

Contestant Jennifer Morrow made the Rush-themed bet when she hit the Daily Double during the program before correctly answering the trivia question.
Morrow also brought a pair of Neil Peart's drumsticks with her as a token of luck. "I was always inspired by tales of knights in shining armor who would ride into battle with a token of favor from somebody they admired," said Morrow. "So I thought I would do that here. I'm a huge fan of the Canadian prog-rock trio Rush. And so I went to one of their concerts a while back and from the front row I held up a banner that said, 'May be on Jeopardy! Request token of favor to carry in thy honor'
"And apparently Neil Peart, the greatest drummer in the world," she added while displaying a pair of his drumsticks, "is a fan of the greatest show in the world." Check out videohere.

Asked about touring plans, McBrain tells 98.7 The Gater that they've been given a guideline from manager Rod Smallwood. "It's still up in the air as to where and when. It's going to be a big one, I'm sure. Rod's told us not to do anything for two years. We really don't know yet." Read morehere.
Keef recently said of the 15-track work: "I had a ball making this record, and working with drummer Steve Jordan and guitarist Waddy Wachtel again. There's nothing like walking into a studio and having no idea what you're doing to come out with at the other end."

But the singer reports the "all-star jam concert party" is not directly connected to the pair's nuptials. Bach says: "Nobody in the world is or ever was 'selling tickets to our wedding.' Our wedding is a private family affair which is not open to the public.
"We are, however, having an All-Star Jam Concert Party Shindig Rock N Roll Extravaganza Bash at the reception, after our wedding. The concert at the reception is open to the public." Read morehere.
The 15 albums are configured across 18 discs due to some tweaks in the change of format to vinyl: 1974's "Queen II" is spread across two records with a custom etching on the reverse side in tribute to the original "Side White" and "Side Black" presentation, while 1991's "Innuendo and 1995's "Made In Heaven" are double albums due to the longer running time on the original CD releases.
"The Studio Collection" presents each album in a different colour along with an illustrated 12 x 12 inch 108 page hardback book complete with introductions to each record - including quotes from Queen themselves, hand-written lyrics, rare photographs, memorabilia, and information on singles and videos.

The prog metal outfit released two albums and had been thought to be working on a third. They were last year nominated for a Progressive Music Award, before splitting with bassist Lori Peri in December.
On April 1 they stated on Facebook: "We have broken up." They'd said nothing more via the channel before last night's announcement. The Safety Fire said: "We had you guys going for a while there, eh? You truly were all April Fools.
"However, the harsh reality is, we have actually broken up. Maybe we will do a farewell show sometime." Read morehere.

Tech site The Verge reports: "It has two front-facing speakers, not unusual, and two audio outputs, which is far less common, plus a dedicated button at the top for instant access to your tunes. A gold-accented scroll wheel on the left side serves as the volume control." Read morehere.
The Boston giants can't decide whether to work on a follow-up to 2012's Music From Another Dimension - although with time off coming up next year, they might have the space to focus on the project.
Perry tells HNGN: "Like Billy Joel said, 'I'm not going to make new records - why should I spend the money? Why should I bust my ass when all people want to hear is Uptown Girl?' He's got a point."
But he adds: "There's always the chance that you can have a hit. You just never know. A lot of the hardcore fans want some new music, but I'd say the majority are looking forward to the next time we're playing live, and playing some of the old standards.
"We'll see how the touring goes and just see how that plays out. The main thing is still getting out on the road - then we'll figure out if and when we're going to try to come up with a record that's worth doing." Read morehere.
The band - led by Portnoy, Megadeth bassist David Ellefson and Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick - have issued their second studio video, which focuses on the song. It also features Lamb Of God's Randy Blythe and ex Pantera bassist Rex Brown.

The frontman makes his recording debut with Ghost on their third album, "Meliora", due out August 21. The project was produced by Klas Ĺhlund and mixed by Andy Wallace (Slayer, Nirvana, Guns N' Roses, Linkin Park).
"Meliora" - latin for "better" - follows the band's second album and major label debut, 2013's "Infestissumam" (latin for "hostile"), which debuted at number one in Sweden and won the Swedish Grammis Award for Best Hard Rock/Metal Album.

Drummer Dennis Thompson, who still lives in the city, arrived to accept the keys from Mayor Tom Karnes, and later performed the band's most famous rabble-rousing song, Kick Out The Jams, with local band Timmy's Organism, while guitarist Wayne Kramer sent a message from his Californian home.
"There was a time when we weren't so popular with the law enforcement here," Thompson said. "Mostly because we said this word. Now this word was not said in a hateful way. It was said to tell people we were with you, it was rough times, with the Vietnam war people were dying, there was a movement with the feminists trying to gain equal opportunity, there was a movement with black people trying to get equal opportunities, and the country was at one point split 50/50 down the middle about the war… And we took a stand against the war. Because we met a lot of intelligent people that said the same thing: what the hell are we doing here? It was insane. So we got chased by the police, the FBI, state police, county police, distress unit. But today I can say 50 years later much progress has been made. What Kick Out The Jams meant was do your best, find out what you love in life and do it with all that you have… Don't settle for less, don't give up, fight." Read morehere.
Holt makes his first studio appearance with Slayer on upcoming album Repentless, in place of the late Jeff Hanneman. King tells Asbury Park Press: "I always looked up to Gary when he was playing in Exodus. I'd always refer to him as the Glenn Tipton of our era - because when people reference guitar players, very rarely does anybody reference Glenn.
"As far as metal goes, he's a giant. People talk about Tony Iommi, but for Glenn Tipton not to be in that same conversation is just a tragedy to me." Read morehere.
Four By Four is the Swedish band's first album since their self-titled release of 2008. They went on hiatus the following years and announced their comeback in January.
Frontman Nicke Borg recently said of Four By Four: "The break has developed us individually as songwriters and musicians, and we've come up with what we feel is our strongest material to date."
Backyard Babies play a run of European festivals and headline shows ahead of a winter UK tour. Watch the video and see the tour dateshere.
Anderson tells Prog's Mark Blake: "I've always thought that music should be for everybody. I remember when the whole thing started with downloads, and people talking about paying for this and not paying for that. I always thought music should be cheaper."
Even before the internet era, he felt CD prices were too high. "I used to say they should be two dollars each, and in the bargain bin at Woolworths, so we could reach more people," he recalls.
That always drew ire from then-manager Brian Lane. "Brian used to go crazy - 'No, Jon, never ever say that! Don't you ever dare say that!'" Read morehere.
Adkins says: "Toward the end of our last European tour, I decided to play a solo show in Berlin. I thought, 'Hey this is pretty different and fun - I could keep going.' So why not?
"I will be touring with myself and a guitar, playing new solo material, Rock Band songs, no Free Bird. I'm trying to get to places I haven't been to in a long time, or maybe ever. Looking forward to the adventure!" Read more and see the dateshere.
The Prog Report say: "With the end of hair metal and the rise of Nirvana and grunge, this progressive metal band from Berklee found themselves with a gold record and a hit single with their 1992 sophomore album, Images And Words.
"For prog and metal fans left out in the cold with mainstream music, this album was critical. Dream Theater were the first band to master and find success in the new era of progressive music, combining the technicality of Yes with the heaviness of Metallica for a completely new sound."
Second place goes to Steven Wilson's 2013 album The Raven That Refused To Sing, while Dream Theater also claim third place with Metropolis 2: Scenes From A Memory. Read morehere.
Keifer will perform songs from his 2013 solo debut, The Way Life Goes, as well as Cinderella classics including Shake Me, Gypsy Road and Nobody's Fool.
The singer recently spoke about how his solo material is going over with fans alongside their favorite Cinderella tunes. Keifer tells FOX 17 Nashville: "That's the cool thing at the show - they sit alongside each other pretty well, and it goes in and out. And the new stuff gets probably just as good a response." Read morehere.
Pre-ordering is available now for the five-track release, which includes three new songs, a live rehearsal recording and a retake of Flint from their debut album. A second rehearsal track appears on the CD edition as a bonus.
Guitarist Matt Stevens says: "This EP represents a different sound for us. It's important to keep moving forward. It's more joyous and intense, with bigger riffs and more of an electronic feel."
Bassist Keavin Feazy adds: "We're back to sounding like the bands we grew up with. Every record we've put out has its own character and story, with a different reality for each." Read more and stream the new songhere.
Organiser Hamish Thompson says: "We've been talking for a while about something we could easily do on a weekday evening in a pub. So here's the idea: we'll pick a record. The name of the album will be the name of the event. Each talk will be a track on the album.
"We'll arrange the speakers. Each speaker will be limited to the running time of the track. Each speaker will have to give a talk that makes sense of the track title. They won't be able to talk about the song though. That's it." Read morehere.
Singer Leigh Kakaty says of the song: "It definitely has a different musical texture than anything we've previously released. There's something that didn't make us second-guess releasing it as an instant gratification track."
He adds: "We're humbled by the success so far, and can't wait to spread the word with these songs with our live show." Up was recorded at Seattle's London Bridge Studios with producer Adam Kasper. Watch the new videohere.
The work is described as a classic-style record, influenced by Genesis, Rush, King Crimson and others. Diatessaron say of All The Way: "You should ask, 'Whatever happened to the light?'"
Their music is said to be "a potent mixture of the intellectual and emotional" while "their oddly-shaped songs will envelop your consciousness with close dissonances that expand into spacious infinity." Stream the songhere.
But he says that if he'd made the record via the more traditional route of hiring a studio and engineers, he might not have gone through with it. He tells UCR: "It seemed never-ending at one point. But then as I got over halfway through, I got more encouraged to keep at it. I just record when I feel like it. If it had been booking a studio and hiring musicians and getting an engineer and a producer, this album would never have gotten made.
"I wasn't sure I'd ever get around to it. I've got a little studio at home, and I used to record on analog tape when I had a studio in LA. But I've gone digital. I got the studio set up and I just started messing around and doing things without really having much of a plan for it or even plans to release it.
"I record for fun a lot of the time, and that's how some of these tracks came together. Then it started shaping up to be a guitar album, so I thought, 'Well, I'll keep going and see where we get.' Read morehere.
Bernard tells MusicRadar: "These days we really want to focus on the songwriting and the arrangements. The songs are still powerful - but they're more emotional.
"The bravest thing we did was not to use distortion. We took a risk - because our fans are metalheads and really attached to distortion. But we wanted to try new things and look for new sounds."
The decision brought with it some production headaches. "I had big problems in the studio," Bernard recalls. "I used an old guitar, a 1972 Greco, and we had a lot of noise during the sessions. It drove me crazy because we needed a perfect signal." Check out a streamhere.
The band say: "Looking forward to Ieperfest, Roadkill Festival, HevyFest and more, as well as shows with Crowbar, The Dillinger Escape Plan Soulfly and others."
Black Tusk's bassist Jonathan Athon died from injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash last year, and the band honored their friend as they toured with Black Label Society earlier this year. See the tour dateshere.
