Led Zeppelin's Bombay Sessions To Finally Be Released

(Gibson) Led Zeppelin's Bombay Sessions will get an official release as part of the premastered version of the band's final album Coda. Part of the band's yearlong re-issue series program, which has already seen the release of premastered versions of the band's first six albums, Coda will be re-released alongside Presence and In through the out Door on 31 July, 2015.

If you were a fan of rock music and lived in Seventies-era Mumbai (or Bombay, as it was then known), you'll have recounted the story of Jimmy Page and Robert Plant's impromptu gig at a local watering hole many times. The story, seared in the collective memories of pretty much every Mumbai rock fan that happened to be alive during the era, has many versions.

The basic plot points are this: Page and Plant happened to be passing through the city and had a night off. They walked out of their hotel and found their way to a nearby dive called Slip Disc. There they sat down for a quiet drink in the relative anonymity that an unfamiliar city afforded them. Eventually however, they were recognized and asked to go up on stage to play a few songs. They cheerfully obliged, rolling through a quick set that included 'Whole Lotto Love'. Eventually they left and though fans lined up outside the pub the next night, they never returned.

While this tale is pretty much the main focus of their Mumbai visits, it tends to distract from the fact that the duo did more with their time in India than an impulsive gig. Page and Plant's goal travelled to India at least four times over the course of the year, with the intention of collaborating and recording with Indian musicians.

Page's friend, the famed sitar player Ravi Shankar, introduced him to an Indian flautist named Vijay Raghu Rao. In Mumbai, Rao put together an ensemble of Indian classical musicians that also included the world-renowned sarong player us tad Sultan Khan. The sessions yielded reworked Indian-iced versions of Zeppelin songs 'Friends' and 'Four Sticks' as well as a number of other tracks. Read more here.

Friend Saved Slipknot Frontman Corey Taylor's Life

Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor reveals in a new interview the circumstances of the last night that he drank over a decade ago, and how he could have lost his life if a friend hadn't been there to save him.

Taylor tells Spotify Metal Talks (via Blabbermouth): "I got sober about halfway through the recording process of ["Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)" in 2004]. Well, I quit drinking. I didn't go in a program or anything like that; I just kind of stopped cold turkey. It was about three months into the recording process. And it was hard; like, it was really, really hard. But I knew I had to do it.

"The last night I drank [in November 2003], I basically found myself hanging off the balcony of the hotel room at the old Hyatt house on Sunset [Boulevard in West Hollywood, California]. I was standing on the balcony, I was just about to fall, and a friend of mine actually grabbed me and pulled me back in. If he hadn't grabbed me, I'd be dead.

"So the next day, I woke up, on the floor, covered in God knows what - just sick, sweaty, gross… I mean, just miserable. And I just said, 'I can't do this… I can't do this anymore. What the hell is going on with me?' And that's when I really kind of started to take those first faltering steps away from everything. And it was difficult; it was very difficult.

"First of all, my health was garbage. I gained a lot of weight. My vocals were so shot… I had to basically start over on everything that I had done at the beginning of it. And that's one of the reasons why that album is really hard for me to listen to, because I was trying something different. Because I was, like, 'I'm doing everything else different. I wanna try something different vocally.' And I'm not sure if it worked, to be honest. I mean, it worked for some of the songs, but not for all of 'em. 'Welcome' is one of the songs, I think, it worked kind of well."

He goes on to discuss the difficult adjustment to sobriety, "It was a long time before I could feel comfortable with myself, because all I knew was who I was when I was wasted. I didn't know who I was as a sober person. I knew who I wanted to be, but I knew that was, kind of, a long time coming. It was about, basically, repairing bridges and dedicating yourself to being a better person. You can't be a better person until you just start being a better person. And it takes time for people to get used to that, it takes time for people to treat you that way. It took ten years. And, lucklily now, I'm kind of starting to feel the good part of that. But I'd done a lot of damage to a lot of people, and I'm still trying to make up for it. But it started with that album."

Muse Release 'Mercy' Video

(Classic Rock) Muse have launched a video for their track Mercy, taken from seventh album Drones. The follow-up to 2012's The 2nd Law was released this week. The band released a video for Defector last week.

Meanwhile, bassist Chris Wolstenholme has said the band are interested in making a West End musical version of the album, which explores the concept of losing identity in the face of technological and political pressure.

Wolstenholme tells Music Feeds: "It would be great to be able to do that at some point. In the immediate future, it's still an album that the fans haven't heard, so all we can really think about at this point in time is getting the album out and going on tour.

"But it would be great to have it incorporated into some sort of musical or something. It would be very exciting to be a part of it." Watch the new video here.

Billy Corgan Looks To Smashing Pumpkins Future, Not The Past

Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan batted aside some loaded interview questions about his upcoming tour with Marilyn Manson and also shared his forward looking plans for the Pumpkins.

Corgan appeared to take exception to a Rolling Stone interviewer's questions about his upcoming tour with Manson being seen as "a nostalgia tour." He shot back, "Anybody who calls us a nostalgia show does not know what the f*** they are talking about.

"Seriously. I mean, [Manson] has just released one of the best albums of his career, and my last two albums were super highly reviewed and well received, so they don't know what the f*** they are talking about."

Corgan added, in response to the similarly themed follow-up question, "It's very simple: You've got two great artists, two great histories, still making great music. We are going to go out and kick ass as good or better than somebody in their twenties or thirties or whatever. Either believe it or don't - but if you don't, then you will miss something that you rarely see, which in this case will be three hours of really powerful music. I mean, there is a point where you can't apologize for that, or you can't really explain it to someone who's got their head up their a** with a selfie stick."

He also shot down reports that he plans to end the Smashing Pumpkins and shared his vision for the future of the band, "I think the new album we're making is very exciting. It's very futuristic. I've basically said that Smashing Pumpkins dies when I die, and maybe not even then. Maybe my niece will take over the franchise when I'm dead. Kiss is already talking about continuing past Gene and Paul, so why not the Smashing Pumpkins beyond William Patrick Corgan?

"We live in an era when everything is alive and everything is dead at the same time. If you are a fan of a particular band that's older, you can go on YouTube and relive their past as much as you want to. You don't have to go see them live. You don't have to listen to their new music. And then you have fans that are really not connected to, in my case, the Nineties. They know the Nineties music, sort of, but it's not their music. We are dealing with a conflux of so many different audiences coming from so many different directions now." Read the full interview here.

Marilyn Manson Got The Blues For The Pale Emperor

(TeamRock Radio) Marilyn Manson says he drew on the influence of the blues for the first time on latest album The Pale Emperor. Manson researched the story of legendary German character Faust who made a pact with the devil's representative Mephistopheles. The story inspired the tale of blues icon Robert Johnson selling his soul to the devil in exchange for musical prowess.

Asked what he'd done differently on The Pale Emperor compared to earlier records, Manson tells Loudwire: "Maybe partially learning the whole point of the blues on the record. One part being about the story of the creation of the blues with Mephistopheles and Faust, and making a deal with the devil to become a rock star.

"The record has me singing in a blues range, which I've never done before. The blues to me came way late in the game and it was more about you telling your story - but you're telling your story in a way that everyone who hears it is sharing the story with you so they're going to hear the story differently.

"The blues is the same story, but it's told by different people in the way you say it, the timbre of your voice or your good or bad deal you've made with the devil."

Meanwhile, footage of Manson's performance at the Rock Am Ring festival in Germany last weekend has been released and can be viewed here.

Former Oceansize Frontman Mike Vennart Releases New Song

(TeamRock Radio) Former Oceansize frontman Mike Vennart has released a lyric video for his track Retaliate. It's taken from his debut solo project The Demon Joke which is released on June 22 via Superball Music.

Vennart tells Rock Sound: "Retaliate is a big, dumb stomper rock tune. I wrote it for just bass and drums, then I asked Richard 'Gambler' Ingram to play the really perverted keyboard lines, then flung on the ridiculous and impossible guitar solo at the end.

"That solo is a real career highlight for me." The Demon Joke features Vennart, his ex Oceansize bandmates Ingram and Steve Durose, and Ginger Wildheart drummer Denzel. Read more and watch the lyric video here.

Steven Wilson To Stream Upcoming Concert Online

(Prog) Steven Wilson will stream Saturday's concert in Los Angeles live online, he's announced. It's part of the US leg of his world tour in support of fourth solo album Hand. Cannot. Erase., inspired by the life story of Joyce Carol Vincent, who was found dead two years after she'd isolated herself from society.

Wilson recently had this to say: "Her story, for me, became symbolic of something about what it means to be living in the heart of the city in the 21st century.

"There's almost a sense of fear and paranoia about who might be on the other side of your front door. That leads to people wrapping themselves in a cocoon and communicating with the world through technology instead of face-to-face interaction." Read more here.
