Ritchie Blackmore 'Banned' From Deep Purple's Rock Hall Induction?

(Classic Rock) Ritchie Blackmore has been banned from attending Deep Purple's Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction, he's said. In a statement, the co-founder reports that the band's current manager has refused permission for him to take part in the ceremony in Brooklyn in April.

Purple were finally confirmed for induction for this year - although frontman Ian Gillan slammed organizers for leaving current members Steve Morse and Don Airey out of the lineup to be listed.

Blackmore's statement says: "Ritchie was honored by the offer of induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He was discussing the possibility of attending, until we received correspondence from the President of the Rock Hall of Fame, who said that Bruce Payne, management for the current Deep Purple Touring Band, had said 'No'..........!!!!!

"Therefore Ritchie will not be attending the ceremony. He sincerely thanks all the fans that voted for him for their support." here.

Why Sammy Hagar Reached Out To Eddie Van Halen On Twitter

(Radio.com) Last month, Sammy Hagar raised eyebrows when he wished Eddie Van Halen a happy birthday on Twitter. Their lengthy feud was seemingly, momentarily, put to rest through the genuine show of goodwill.

Ultimate Classic Rock reports that the deaths of rock legends David Bowie and Glenn Frey helped motivate Hagar to reach out. "It just makes you stop and think that, you know, with my relationship with Eddie Van Halen and stuff that's always been in the toilet, it makes you say, 'I don't want to be buried with any regrets or bad vibes like that,'" said Hagar. 'It makes you want to be just friends with everybody and say, 'Hey look, forget it.'"

Despite the public display, Hagar dismissed the idea that a reunion will necessarily happen as a result. 'Even if you don't want to be in a band together, just let's be friends," he said. 'No more enemies for me. You don't want to go to your grave with enemies." Read more here.

David Bowie Turned Down Dave Grohl Collaboration

(Radio.com) Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl reveals in a new interview segment for Playboy that he approached David Bowie to join a film song project he worked on in the 90s, but the legendary star politely turned him down.

Bowie declined--stating after he watch the film, that is was not "his thing." Grohl remembered a night around 1997 when he played a 50th birthday celebration for Bowie at Madison Square Garden.

"About two years ago, I got approached by this movie to do a song for the movie, so I thought, 'Maybe I'll have someone else sing, I'll do the music and then have another vocalist.' And then I thought, "Maybe I'll ask and see if David would want to do it.'

"So the next day I get an email and it says, 'David, I watched the movie and I got to be honest, it's not my thing.' He said, 'I'm not made for these times.'" Watch the video segment to find out the funny way Bowie signed off on the conversation here.

Bring Me The Horizon Frontman Gets Revenge On Coldplay

Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes appears to have taken his revenge on Coldplay during the NME Awards in Austin this week. Sykes had previously called out the British pop band for the similarities in the artwork for one of their releases and Coldplay's latest effort.

During the awards show, Sykes jumped up on Coldplay's table and kicked over glasses and bottles, according to Lambgoat. They report that Sykes actions prompted Coldplay's Jonny Buckland from his seat.

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin reportedly claimed to NME afterwards that he had never heard of Bring Me The Horizon before but said of the incident, "it was great... very rock n roll." Watch video of Sykes table dance here.

Killswitch Engage Release 'Cut Me Loose' Video

Frontman Jesse Leach says: "This song is about finding wisdom and understanding through suffering. The past is a story we tell ourselves, and often that story can be difficult to recount. The burdens we carry can act as a noose, inhibiting our growth and progression.

"There comes a time when we must release the bondage of our burdens and makie peace with the demons and darkness of the past - setting the albatross of regret free and moving on in life, if you will."

Killswitch tour the US starting in March. See the dates and watch the new video here.

Def Leppard Won't Take As Long For Next Album

(Classic Rock) Def Leppard guitarist Viv Campbell says fans shouldn't have to wait another seven years for the band's next release. They launched their self-titled 11th album last year - their first full-length effort since 2008's Songs From The Sparkle Lounge.

But Campbell reports that with so many creative ideas within the group, a studio return shouldn't take quite so long in the future. He tells Billboard: "I do think it's encouraged us a lot to the extent I think we'll see another record a hell of a lot sooner than the time between this one and the last one. There's always stuff around - there's always ideas. Everyone in the band is reasonably prolific.

"It's never the question of not having enough songs - it's a question of what kind of songs. Every Def Leppard album has to have all these different flavours and hit all these different marks. It's not a question of just showing up with a dozen rock songs. So that's what takes a lot of time." Read more here.

Big Boy Bloater Streaming Full New Album' Luxury Hobo'

(The Blues) Big Boy Bloater is streaming his latest album Luxury Hobo in full exclusively with TeamRock, ahead of its official released on February 26 via Provogue/Mascot label Group.

The album is described as "tougher, deeper and more expressive" than his previous material after the bluesman suffered a bout of depression in 2013. Bloater says: "I never felt I was prone to that kind of thing. I had a breakdown and the album centres around that we've got all these great things but are still pissed off and medicate ourselves to be normal.

"The basic idea of the title is we are all luxury hobos these days. We get to go here, there and everywhere - but no one has it the hard way now do they? We all have our luxuries. It's that juxtaposition. I think the whole album is about the modern day life and society." Stream the album here.

Samantha Fish Making An Acoustic Album

(The Blues) Samantha Fish has started work on an acoustic album that she hopes will demonstrate she's capable of much more than the blues she's already known for.

And one of the reasons for stretching her own boundaries is that she doesn't believe the genre should remain static. Fish tells the Daily Record: "It's going to be something different for me. I think it's an honest evolution of where I'm at."

The undated release, featuring a selection of session musicians, follows third album Wild Heart, launched last year. "I felt that I was writing songs that I wanted to write," she says. "I didn't feel that I had to fit into a box. It's a raw, honest record." Read more here.

Singled Out: Inglorious' High Flying Gypsy

Inglorious released their self-titled debut album today (February 19th) and to celebrate we asked Nathan James to pick one of the songs from the album to tell us about. He selected the track "High Flying Gypsy". Here is the story:

The reason I chose this is because it's the most personal song to me on the record. It's a character I created that is inspired by a member of my family and the fact that actions they took and decisions they made in the past are not forgotten and not everyone can forgive. It's also a song I co wrote on the album with Al Pitrelli [Megadeth, Alice Cooper, TSO] backstage at an arena in the US whilst on tour with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. We were in Al's dressing room before a show and he said "this riff is great, very zeppelin" I loved it straight away and was humming out a verse instantly.

Its one of the only times on the album that my voice is low, which has always been a challenge for me. I much prefer to be in my upper register. But I think it adds unease to the performance and an almost sinister delivery. This is made easier because I'm singing about someone I don't really care for.

I am a new writer. This album is my writing debut and I wrote 98 percent of the lyrics on it. I was initially petrified by the idea of putting my feelings and emotions into words but what I found when I started was that I had a lot to say and talk about. 27 years on this planet and I had never written them down.

My lyrics are not hugely deep or difficult to understand but that's cos I wrote them. I don't claim to be a genius or even very intelligent. I just wanted to write songs I could sing honestly and really convey truthfully as I have spent my whole performing life so far singing the words of other writers. This can sometimes be very challenging.

I have never connected to anything as much as I do these songs and this one in particular.

The way we recorded the song as with our whole album was live. We wanted vibe, reality and truth and that's what this song does. There was no click track, auto tune and no overdubs. That is what happened in that room on that day and it will never be exactly the same again. That's how music to us should be. A series of moments that cannot be repeated. The only thing I will try and repeat is the emotion of each song and make sure the audience hears my stories.

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

Stone Temple Pilots On What They Are Looking For In New Singer

(Classic Rock) Stone Temple Pilots have detailed what they're looking for in their new vocalist. Earlier this month the band launched a worldwide search for a lead singer after Chester Bennington left last November. The frontman returned full-time to Linkin Park after finding it difficult to juggle the demands of both projects.

Bassist Robert DeLeo tells Nikki Sixx: "We're all the same age and we all know where we came from. We're looking for that 'thing' that those singers we grew up on had - and still have. He's out there. Or she could be out there. Joan Jett is pretty badass. Lzzy Hale is badass too."

Guitarist Dean DeLeo adds: "We want greatness, male or female. We're looking for that person. This person needs to be special. The word 'lead' means a lot.

"There's a lot of criteria to be met, not only talent-wise, but we want them as a member of the family. It's a big part." Read more and stream the full interview here.

August Burns Red Stuck In Elevator On Their Way To Grammys

(TeamRock Radio) August Burns Red had to be rescued by fire services after they were stuck in an elevator on the way to the Grammy Awards on Monday night.

Weezer Premieres New Song 'LA Girlz'

(Radio.com) Weezer have released an online stream of the new track "La Girlz" from their upcoming project The White Album, and it sounds like a throwback to some of their more classic moments.

The band premiered the ode to Los Angeles women on Beats 1 Radio. In it, Rivers Cuomo waxes poetic about a love "like Dante and Beatrice." Things naturally take on a more melancholic tone, as he questions, "How is this going to end?" and begins repeating 'Does anybody love anybody as much as I love you baby?"

Heading into the song's climax, the guitars bleed together into harmonic rock. Weezer explodes towards the finale, resulting in an imaginative guitar solo that calls to mind their 1994 album Weezer aka The Blue Album. The White Album will be released on April 1. Listen to "LA Girlz" here.

Slayer Release Preview Of 'You Against You' Video

Guitarist Kerry King recently discussed how he and colleague Gary Holt recorded their solos for the single, saying: "He did You Against You before I did mine. I think that one really captured me and Gary playing off each other."

Repentless - Slayer's first release since the death of Jeff Hanneman in 2013 and the dismissal of drummer Dave Lombardo the following year - was launched in September. The band continue the US leg of their world tour tomorrow night (February 19). Watch the preview here.

Tom Waits Streams Cover of Blind Willie Johnson Classic

(Classic Rock) Tom Waits has released an online stream of his take on Blind Willie Johnson's Soul Of A Man. It appears on tribute album God Don't Never Change: The Songs Of Blind Willie Johnson, to be released on February 26 by Alligator Records. It also includes recordings by Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, the Blind Boys Of Alabama and Lucinda Williams, among others.

The almost-mythological blues artist recorded 30 songs between 1927 and 1930, which have influence big names from Led Zeppelin to Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan.

Alligator say: "Johnson sang his sanctified gospel lyrics with overwhelming intensity, his deep, raspy voice accompanying his haunting, blues-drenched guitar playing."

Trucks comments: "I never heard a slide player, even to this day, play with that much emotion. I've only heard a few things that have hit me quite that strongly. He's one of the few handful of musicians whose music really feels sacred to me - it feels like it came out of a different world." Stream the song here.
