He tells Sirius XM: "It's going to get better. I'm going to get these guys. They are going to be sorry they treated people this way. The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame is going to go to Cleveland, the museum is actually going to mean something. The funding they raise will be used for music education before I'm done."
He continues: "I'm planning to keep it in the news. I'm planning to investigate them. I've already got all their public documents, I want to see where they're spending the money, I want to see who's being paid. I'm going to check it all out." Read morehere.

"With Axl we've been able to mix up quite a few songs," adds Angus. "Do a few older ones, put them in. Which we haven't done in a number of years. We used to get a setlist, and that would be us for a tour.

"We rented a cabin in the mountains and just wrote together in a room, which was the polar opposite of the last three albums we've made. And working with producer Bill Stevenson was an awesome experience.
"He was a bit hard to read at first, so I think we subconsciously pushed ourselves harder to try to impress him. As a result, we gave this album everything we had." Watch the videohere.

When the rock critics who parse such things as musical innovation, vision and authenticity perfectly agree with mass popular taste, a remarkable thing happens, as Peter Gabriel found out everywhere at once with So: you become the saving grace of progressive rock music while simultaneously occupying the mainstream pop high ground, a once-in-a-generation feat. Because of "Red Rain", "Sledgehammer", "In Your Eyes", "Don't Give Up" with Kate Bush, "Big Time" , and the meditative tone poem "Mercy Street", you would have to reach all the way back to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon to find anything even remotely comparable.
Prior to So, ex-Genesis lead singer Peter Gabriel had developed a cult following culminating with his groundbreaking "Shock the Monkey" song and video. But with the May 1986 release of So (#1 UK sales, #2 US; over 5 million sold; 4 Grammy nominations including Album and Record of the Year for the # 1 hit "Sledgehammer"), Peter Gabriel vaulted into international pop stardom with all of its attendant door-opening, barrier-eliminating amenities. Like certain other entertainers who had reached elite status in the fame game, Gabriel chose to use his newly-found powers for good through several international human rights organizations, including Amnesty International, Peter's own World Music charity WOMAD, and a death row/capital punishment project.
Speaking to InTheStudio host Redbeard, Peter Gabriel shares how the songwriting process unfolds for him. He says, "I've always worked from the rhythm first, because if you get a great groove happening, then it's sorta down hill. You can take your hands off the keyboard, shut your mouth for a moment, and the thing still feels great." Stream the episodehere.

Frontman Gus Wood tells AltPress: "We recorded it at House Of Loud in New Jersey with the brilliant David Bendeth this February, and are really excited with the results. Featuring Chris Kamrada on drums, it's a big anthemic rock song and we hope you dig it as much as we do."
Kamrada was brought into the fold following the departure of Ben Jolliffe. The band wished their former sticksman well for the future and said the split had happened as they were "simply headed in different directions." Check out the songhere.
Frontman Sam McTrusty says of 12-track album GLA: "This is where we come from. It's laced in our blood, not to mention our art and vision. It's bold. It's in our voice. It's time to embrace it and not work around it."
He describes Glasgow as "a city at the forefront of multiculturalism, forward-thinking and with a real sense of community, but also with a dark and rough history." Read more and see the dateshere.
