DEA Involved In Prince's Death Investigation

(Radio.com) The county sheriff investigating Prince's death has enlisted the Drug Enforcement Administration for help, federal law enforcement officials have confirmed.

Following rampant rumors about Prince's liberal use of the painkiller Percocet, officials say prescription painkillers were found in his possession when he died and in his house in Minneapolis, though drugs have not been cited as the official cause of death. An autopsy was conducted, but the medical examiner said it would take weeks before the results would be disclosed.

The DEA's role will be to determine where the medications came from and what prescriptions Prince obtained, officials say. After a law enforcement official told CBS News that prescription drugs were found in Prince's possession at the time of his death, a source revealed that Prince began taking Percocet in 2006 when he first suffered hip pain from years of leaping around onstage. The source added that Prince has also suffered ankle and hip problems for years. The music legend had hip replacement surgery in 2010. Read more here.

"The guys aren't 23 any more - they're dads now, so they're no longer writing songs about poo and that kind of stuff. But there's still got to be a sense of humor to it." See the tour dates here.

AC/DC's Bon Scott Hometown Statue To Be Unveiled This Week

(hennemusic) A statue of AC/DC legend Bon Scott will be officially unveiled in the late singer's Scottish hometown of Kirriemuir this weekend. The Courier reports 45,000, 450kg bronze statue - funded by fans around the world - is the first in the country of the late rocker, who was born in Kirriemuir, Angus, but moved to Australia with his family when he was six.

The AC/DC landmark will have its official unveiling this Saturday as part of the 10th annual BonFest, a three-day music festival celebrating the singer's roots.

"It's amazing how many people don't know that Bon Scott came from Kirriemuir," says BonFest chairman John Crawford. "People know about J.M. Barrie and Peter Pan, but they are both famous sons of the town and there is room for them both."

"In 2008, Bon's Australian home town, Fremantle, unveiled a statue of him. At that point we started thinking it might be good to have one here where he started his life," said DD8 Music development worker Graham Galloway. "The unveiling will take place on Saturday, 30th of April, and will be carried out by some very special guests: Mark Evans, bass player on four of the Bon-era albums; Tony Currenti, drummer on AC/DC's first album; and Mary Renshaw, Bon's seamstress and 'soulmate.'

"We are looking at a total attendance of 3,700 and are expecting fans from all over the world to travel. We have confirmed travellers from the USA, Canada, Spain, Italy, Norway, Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Australia and New Zealand. All in all, it is shaping up to be an amazing weekend."

Iron Maiden Will Try To Prevent Future Censorship

(Classic Rock) Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson has promised Chinese fans that he'll do something about government censorship that prevented the band from delivering their full-power show in China.

The country's Ministry of Culture is well-known for requiring changes to musicians' performances, including the banning of songs that might be seen to criticise the government, or which are regarded as subversive.

That didn't stop Iron Maiden from visiting China for the first time on their The Book Of Souls world tour - but it meant their performances didn't include pyros, smoke effects, Dickinson's flag-waving antics during The Trooper, throwing merchandise into the crowd or using strong language.

A fan video shot in Shanghai earlier this week shows Dickinson joking with the crowd, saying: "They did say 'no cameras.' Do I care? Everybody take out your camera device - take a picture."

He goes on: "It's great to be in China tonight. We ripped it up in Beijing, and we thought, 'That was a bit serious.' They had a few rules, so we kind of stuck by the rules and we didn't do any swearing. There's another thing I can't do - see if you can guess what it is later on."

With each swearword mouthed instead of spoken, he says: "We don't really give a sh*t about all that, because the most important thing is the music. The most important thing is that we're here, and you're here, and we're going to have a great f***ing time."

Dickinson then refers to a TV interview with guitarist Janick Gers, saying: "They've got these great pictures of the show with flames everywhere, dry ice and smoke. I thought, 'That's a f***ing shame, because we can't do that - we got a little bit restricted.'"

He adds: "Next time we'll have a word. Next time we come back to China." Watch video here.

Black Stone Cherry Sorry For Motorhead Drug Claim

(Classic Rock) Black Stone Cherry bassist Jon Lawhorn has apologised to Motorhead after saying late icon Lemmy and his bandmates had continually offered them cocaine on tour.

In a recent interview Lawhon spoke about the bands' road trip together in 2010, telling RockSverige: "All of them, not just Lemmy, all of them, would offer us whisky and coke every day. Whisky and cocaine. Every day we'd tell them no."

That led to a rebuttal on Motorhead's Facebook page, where a post read: "Mikkey has never done drugs. The only coke Lemmy loved went in his Jack Daniels. Sad to see people the band helped lie. An apology would be the decent thing."

Lawhorn later posted: "I am deeply sorry for any harm that I may have caused the Motorhead camp. Let me make it crystal clear that we were never offered any substances by Lemmy, Mikkey, Phil or their stage crew. We were offered substances by now former employees of the band while on tour with them and I should have made that distinction in my interview." Read more

Morley Crue Not Going To Disappear Despite Retirement

(Classic Rock) Nikki Sixx says Motley Crue will continue to be engaged with their fans despite having called it quits at the start of the year. The bassist says the band's legacy is too big to simply walk away, adding: "There's going to be Motley in your life for a long time."

Motley Crue played their last ever gig on New Year's Eve, and the performance at the Staples Center in Los Angeles was filmed for an upcoming DVD release.

Sixx tells One On One With Mitch Lafon: "We have a live DVD of our last performance ever that we've just finished mixing. It looks fantastic. It was a great show.

"We have a legacy that needs to be curated. We have vintage merchandise. We plan on obviously staying engaged with our fans. It's not like we're simply going to disappear.

David Lee Roth Shares Van Halen Tour Stories

(hennemusic) David Lee Roth shares some vintage Van Halen tour stories on the latest edition of The Roth Show. In the episode entitled "Black Christmas Tree", the rocker recounts tales of how the band and road crew worked together to keep the party going long after the concert ended.

Van Halen were legendary for their post-show parties back in the day, as they built their own portable road gear to ensure the fun offstage matched the intensity of the on stage appearance wherever they were.

Roth hired a "Recreational Director" to organize post-show events, and when a specialist wasn't available, the road crew would step up. "Rudy the guitar tech invents 'The Later', kind of a fruity drink loaded with rum or vodka or something," explains Roth. "We called it 'Later' because you'd be later for the dance than you ever thought you'd be.

"We would have these parties, especially if you're playing multiple nights in a city - two, three nights at the local arena - and after the first night we'd have a big party. And then Rudy invented the "Super Laters", because they'd make you later for the dance than even 'the Laters' would make you late.

"This gets complicated. We had to build him a special road case, like six-and-a-half feet tall; it opened up like a closet wityh three big sections containing three industrial strength blenders, circuit breakers, a car stereo, mixing gear, disco lights and an ice bucket. It was called 'Raving Rude's Libation Station.' The biggest road case anyone had ever seen, and we would set up a tent in the open air and have a rompin, stompin' BBQ." Watch the episode here.

Bassist Chris Sorenson tells Billboard: "This was a song that we knew we had to see through. The demo started off very differently and we were unsure if it would fit into the way the record was shaping.

"But once vocals were demoed and a few things were moved around we knew that it was something very powerful." Watch the video here.

"We needed a bluesman, someone that could carry the torch and do the show in B.B.'s stead. I quite naturally thought of Jesse - it's just a natural fit." Read more here.

The Delta Saints Announce UK Tour

(The Blues) The Delta Saints have confirmed a UK tour for June, in support of second album Bones. The Nashville outfit decided on a risky approach to studio sessions, by writing the tracks as they recorded instead of preparing them in advance.

Frontman Ben Ringel explains: "We got to the point where what we were recording and playing had veered from what we were listening to and loving on our turntables, which can lead to discontent."

Bassist David Supica adds: "It was incredible to be able to write a song on the spot and immediately hear what it sounded like. Still, it was absolutely terrifying to sit in the studio watching the clock tick and waiting for a song to come out.

"This record was made out of both necessity and desire. We needed to be fulfilled and surprised by music again, and we also needed to fulfil that love of writing and recording again." See the dates here.

Singled Out: REPS' Dead In The Water

Rochester heavy rockers REPS released their brand new album "Poisoned Youth" today and to celebrate we asked Steve Koch to tell us about the song "Dead in the Water". Here is the story:

For our entry in Singled out I want to share the story of how we wrote the song "Dead in the Water" off of our record Poisoned Youth. The song began the same way pretty much all of our songs start off- the riff. The intro riff was one that our guitarist, Jordan, had come up with years ago, and just never used it in a song. One night in the early stages of writing for the record, we were all pretty burnt out after a long practice/writing session. At this point we had two songs completed instrumentally, and were about halfway done with a third but struggling to find where to take the song next. We collectively decided we would call it a night and come back to it with fresh ears and ideas in a few days. So at this point I'm completely ready to go home, and then I hear Jordan playing this riff. I remember hearing and thinking "Holy sh*t, what's that?!" So Mike (Bassist) and I had him show us the riff some more, teach Mike how to play it, and then we got back to writing.

Now normally our writing process takes a bit of time for a song. We all pitch our ideas, butt our heads, and through the process come out with a final product we are all stoked on. That was not the case at all for this song. We finished the instrumentals in under an hour. It was like we were reading eachothers minds while we were just jamming ideas; Mike and I just naturally locking in kicks and cues, pulling back in parts to let Jordan shred some fret Olympics. The ending of the song was completely inspired by a part in a song by The Beautiful Ones that Mike had shown me earlier that week. Just a slow, heavy, straight forward breakdown or sorts. It was an amazing feeling to have been ready to call it a night and then just bang out a whole new song.

The song's lyrics are somewhat a synopsis of a reoccurring theme throughout a good deal of the records songs. It's basically about our generation being plagued, or poisoned if you will, by various vices. War, violence, racism, homophobia, religious prejudice, narcissism, and the list could go on. It's infuriating to me that all these wicked or immoral attributes are so prevalent, despite all the lessons history has taught us. For whatever reason our generation stands divided, fighting eachother and holding ourselves down under the weighted influence of those who came before us. Rather than learning anything from the atrocities of history that have carried us to this point; we keep our heads down and blaze down the same downward spiral.

Lyrically this song came together extremely fast as well. The guys usually put a lot of trust in me to come up with lyrics, while sending me ideas and pieces they have as well. At the time we were writing the record, I was working overnight shifts processing patient samples in a hospital chemistry lab. The hours were garbage, but the downtime between rushes of work was when I accomplished most of the lyric writing for the whole record. Our vocalist Colt helped me a ton with this particular song. I knew what direction I was going content wise, but hit a wall shortly after the first verse and the chorus type part. Colt sent me a bunch of lines and short phrases he'd think of, basically like poetry. There was one he sent me that said "We are chasing shadows in the dark with scissors in our hands, we are the successfully poisoned youth." Reading that was like a giant light bulb turning on, and I knew I had to use all of that in the song. I finished that song on a lunch break at 3am and immediately texted it to the guys. When I woke up the following afternoon I had texts from all the other dudes and they were really stoked on the lyrics. This song was also where we got the idea to title the record "Poisoned Youth". It's for sure one of my favorites off the record, and a blast to play.

Thank you for reading, and please check out Poisoned Youth. May the force be with you, always.

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