Singer Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan will perform together in April for the first time since 1993, with appearances confirmed in Las Vegas and at the Coachella festival. The rest of the band's lineup is yet to be confirmed.
Tyler tells Howard Stern on SiriusXM: "I did meet Axl in a couple of clubs. I had that talk. I said, 'You need to get back together again soon, because we all miss you.' Same thing someone said to me when Joe Perry and I were fighting - in fact, it was Jon Bon Jovi.
"I'm in rehab. He calls me up and goes, 'What the f*** are you doing? The world needs you. We're out here ripping it up and everybody's asking for Aerosmith. People in the world need you.'"
He adds he told Rose: "You've got to get it together. There's a place and a time where, if you don't, you're going to miss it. In another four or five years no one's going to even know or care - and that's Steven Tyler's opinion." Read more and stream the full interviewhere.
According to TMZ, Neil is the first celebrity confirmed for the new season, which will mark Arnold Schwarzenegger's debut as host since the network parted ways with Donald Trump last June.
The singer joins a lengthy list of rockers who have appeared on the reality series, including Dee Snider, Gene Simmons, Meat Loaf, Mark McGrath and season 3 winner Bret Michaels. Read morehere.
Jagger tells Rolling Stone: "He used to copy me sometimes, but he'd be very honest about it. If he took one of your moves he'd say, 'That's one of yours - I just tried it.'
"He'd always look at my clothes labels. When he would see me, he'd give me a hug, and I could feel him going up behind the collar of my shirt to see what I was wearing. I didn't mind sharing things with him because he'd share so much with me. It was a two-way street."
Jagger says it's "really stupid when you think about it" that the pair's 1985 charity cover of Dancing In The Street was the only time they properly collaborated, adding: "We enjoyed camping it up. The video is hilarious to watch.
"We had to record the song and film the video in one day. We walked straight form the studio onto the set. At the end of the day we were saying, 'See, it can be done! Why are we spending years in the studio?'" Read morehere.
Exile features 10 tracks, including the Gary Moore dedication Song For Gary and a cover of Little Richard's rock'n'roll classic Rip It Up. It was recorded in Chesire and is Bell's first studio effort since 2009's Lonely Nights In London.
He says: "I'm trying to cover the whole spectrum of music with Exile. This album reflects the music I like to play and listen to." Bell left Lizzy on New Year's Eve 1973, blaming ill-health caused by the band's lifestyle. Read morehere.
He says Ellefson was dedicating more time to Metal Allegiance - which boasts a rotating all-star line-up including Alex Skolnick of Testament, Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater, Charlie Benante from Anthrax and Slayer's Gary Holt.
The supergroup released its self-titled debut album in September. The 54-year-old frontman tells Full Metal Jackie (via Blabbermouth): "You know, at the beginning of 2015, I didn't even have a full band. But I had a vision, and I was determined.
"And now that it was, basically, me by myself, because I didn't know what was up with Ellefson. He was off doing his Metal Allegiance stuff, and I figured, 'Maybe I need to look for a new bass player now too.'" Read morehere.
Bury Tomorrow say: "As a big thanks to all of you for the amazing support so far, we've decided to upload another track before release day. Listen to 301 featuring Jamey Jasta here."
Frontman Dani Winter-Bates last week told TeamRock the band had written the album on the road. He said: "We wrote it on tour in six weeks, whereas last time we wrote it over eight months. Any quiet place we could find, like a tourbus or a corridor."
They released a video for the track Last Light this month and they tour Europe with Parkway Drive this month and next. Stream the new songhere.
The melodic death metal band announced in September that they would be reforming their old lineup for the Japanese music event's 10th anniversary.

In a post on his General Journals online diary, Flynn says watching a documentary on Showtime about three years ago reminded him that the Eagles had managed to hold his musical affection for several decades.
He says: "I grew up in California and their music was almost like second nature to me. It was a constant during my 'growing years'. I still listen to them regularly on tour - sometimes after a show to relax, sometimes to kick the party up a notch. Don Henley's voice is other-worldly, but Glenn Frey sang some of my favourite songs by them as well - Take It Easy, Heartache Tonight, New Kid In Town.
Dad-of-two Flynn adds: "It's the song Heartache Tonight that I have fondest memories of. It reminds me of drinking wine with Genevra sometime in the mid-90s. We were living in our old apartment in Berkeley and her talking me into dancing in our cramped-ass living-room." Read morehere.
Bain died, aged 68, while Last In Line were taking part in Def Leppard's cruising festival at the weekend. Freeman says: "I cannot stress the level of sadness that I feel, losing such a close friend and mentor.
"Jimmy, along with Vivian Campbell and Vinny Appice, welcomed me into their intimate artistic circle, entrusting me with the responsibility of performing a legendary library of music - and building a new one.
"I will forever be indebted to this man for the encouraging spirit he graced me with. Rest easy, my friend. I will do my best to carry on your legacy." Read morehere.
Vocalist/guitarist Andrew Stockdale says "Victorious" presents a mix of styles, all suited for big rock shows. "We wanted to get back to that big sound," he explains. "The album is a balance of garage-y energy and big production. It's wild, energetic and perfect for a festival main stage."
The band will launch a North American tour in support of "Victorious" on February 24 at First Avenue in Minneapolis, MN; the 6-week run will be followed a series of European shows in April and May.
Joining Stockdale in Wolfmother's touring lineup are bassist Ian Peres and drummer Vin Steele. Watch the videohere.
The record represents guitarist Derek Trucks' first work since ending his 15-year run in the Allman Brothers Band - and also the first time he and wife Susan Tedeschi have written every track of a collection.
Trucks recently said: "What I hear in the music is this feeling that we're now putting 100% of what we have into this band - not going back to anything else, everyone giving it their all." Stream the songhere.
The record was produced by Andy Sneap, who has previously worked with Megadeth, Testament and Accept, and features guest session drummer Tobias Gustafsson of Vomitory fame.
Frontman Johan Hegg says: "The Jomsvikings were a shadowy and legendary sect of Viking mercenaries, as shrouded in myth now as they were when they fought across Europe and the Middle East.
"Ruthless and deadly warriors who fought for the highest bidder, their code was simple - show no fear, never retreat, defend your brothers, and when called upon, avenge their deaths."
He adds: "I felt we were finally ready to use their story as the jumping off point for an Amon Amarth album. The Jomsvikings and their world is the background for the story of a young man that is in love with a girl but unfortunately she's being married off.
"He accidentally kills a man when this happens and he has to flee - but he swears to have revenge and win her back. He can't let go of the past. He feels that he's been wronged and his life has been destroyed. The way the story evolves is not a happy story." Read more and watch the videohere.
Also announced for the 2016 bill are Hacktivist, Gnarwolves, Krokodil, No Consequence, Devil Sold His Soul, Forever Never, Vukovi, Murdock and When Our Time Comes.
Two headliners are still to be announced and tickets, priced at £79, are available now via the official festival website. Festival organiser James Dutton previously said they left their spiritual home of Port Lympne because the original venue was undergoing a major overhaul. Read morehere.

As we fire up 2016 on all cylinders...we are bringing you guys full circle on the last few years of our rock journey…with the release of our newest single "Face The Music." The track is special to us because we're continuing to push the limits of our music.
We've spent the last three years touring and making new relationships in the industry and meeting new amazing people - our fans have dubbed themselves "The TungNation." What an honor to have fans that are so supportive…it may sound like an uplifting journey, but there's a down side of that journey as well. There are many people that just want to take from us. I bet that sounds familiar to other musicians. While we were on tour, we started to feel the backlash from people…so called 'industry' people. Our manager just kept telling us "Keep pushing forward, these people won't mean anything later in your career." Those positive words helped in the short term, but we've found more and more people trying to take down the band - from promoters to other bands to the industry.
You can imagine we were on the edge - A LOT! One day while out on the road, we had a day off and went to a deli to grab food and see some sites. The people who worked at the deli looked at us and asked, "Are you guys a band?"
We were a little hesitant on saying yes. I opened my big mouth and said "Yeah, what kind of music do you like?" While I'm asking, you could hear folk music in the background. I was totally taken back, when the guy said Rock, Hard Rock, Metal etc. We hung around the deli for the next few hours with the people who worked there and had a blast! What that made us realize was that it's all about the people that believe in us. What our manager had been telling us, was coming into focus.
Later that evening, while we were sitting in the hotel jamming, I had a riff that I liked and we started working on it. That's when the lyrics for "Face The Music" came pouring out like crazy. Everything I started singing about was about the past few years of negative encounters. We were really digging the idea behind the song - we wanted to take a negative situation - that had made a huge impact us and put that to words for the song. That's when we realized that the song was coming full circle for Silvertung as a band.
The title didn't come right away, but the lyrics, "Don`t bring a knife to a gunfight, You should have known that you never throw stones" did.
After coming home, we took time off to do additional writing. I came to rehearsal with the song we had started on the road and read the lyrics to the guys, and said it`s called "Face The Music." It gave us chills. We connected with the song. We recorded a rough draft and sent it to our producer Steven Wright. His first reaction was "HELL YES! This is a great song!" We made a few changes as we were recording and we had a winner! "Face The Music" has been a very positive reaction to negative situation. That's Silvertung - no matter what negativity we face, we try to make the best of that situation and 'face the music.'
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself as you watch the video here and learn more about the bandright here!
