Entitled Exile On Main Street: A Season In Hell With The Rolling Stones, it's based on the 2008 book by Robert Greenfield. Deadline.com reports that filming is set to commence towards the end of this year.
The double-album was originally released in 1972 after three years of writing followed by recording sessions in the cellars of a villa in France. It frequently appears in lists of the greatest records of all time. Read morehere.
But speaking at last night's Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards ceremony in London, he shared a message of hope for fellow victims of debilitating disease.
He made his comments while accepting the annual Golden God Award at a gala evening that included a celebration of the life of Lemmy, featuring his surviving Motorhead bandmates and old friends Saxon.
Jordison heaped praise on Slipknot - who dismissed him in 2013 - saying: "I want you all to give them praise. We accomplished a lot and I wish them nothing but luck and the best of praise."
He went on: "Toward the end of my career in Slipknot I got really, really sick with a horrible disease called transverse myelitis. "I lost my legs. I couldn't play any more. It was a form of multiple sclerosis, which I don't wish on my worst enemy." Read morehere.
The tune originally surfaced as a bonus song off the Seattle band's last album, 2012's "Fanatic", but has been revamped into an entirely new song with some vocal and lyrical help from Hetfield.
"It blows the previous version out of the water," says guitarist Nancy Wilson. "James just took the song on, and what he added was perfect with a bite and a rock accent."
Due July 8, the project was co-produced by Nancy alongside Heart bassist Dan Rothchild, the son of legendary Doors producer Paul Rothchild. The project sees the Wilson sisters delivering new songs and updated versions of some of their favorite "cherry picks" from their catalog.
The seven tracks that were pulled from the Heart catalog were tunes both Nancy and Ann wanted another shot at, due many times to how they were initially produced. Songs like "City's Burning", "Down On Me," and "Sweet Darlin'" have always been live favourites but they had somewhat languished.
"Those songs may have fallen through the cracks, in a way, because of where radio was at the time when they were first released," explains Ann Wilson. "Rediscovering those songs, I found ways they emotionally still speak to me." Read more and check out the previewhere.
The fresh clip features previously reported comments, including bassist Nikki Sixx's description of his colleagues as "not enemies but not friends." That led him to later call on people to avoid making simplified judgements about their 35-year career.
Krieg says in the video: "These guys are going in four different directions. They're on four different buses. Most of the time they're staying at different hotels from one another.
"It's been a year and seven months we've been doing this final tour. We're really looking forward to it finishing." He adds: "Some days they like each other, some days they don't. Most days they don't. But when they're on stage together, when someone f***s with one of them, all four jump on 'em.
"It's pretty amazing - they're connected even though they're disconnected." Watch the video cliphere.
He tells Kerrang: "The craziest thing was, when we dedicated a song to Nick on the last tour, I got about halfway through the song and I couldn't sing anymore - I just started crying. I turned around and I stood next to the drum riser with my back turned, because I didn't want anybody to see me. But it was heavy."
He continues: "With all the stuff that was going on at the end, with Nick talking about me in the press and stuff like that, I had no idea how much I really, really love him. That was what was evident when I sang about him.
"That's the Nick I'll always remember - the guy that made me smile, that made me happy and was a little bit of an annoyance, but somebody that I'll always love." Read morehere.
Despite this, Howorth says he's determined to continue working with In This Moment. He reports: "I woke up in severe pain and unable to move my head in any direction, it felt like my neck was fused. I must have unknowingly injured it working the day before in our band storage unit.
"I immediately sought medical attention and now, after four weeks of therapy and meds, I am getting some mobility back. Unfortunately I have been diagnosed with acute arthritis in my neck and shoulders. It's something I'm going to have to live with from now on but I'm determined to continue writing and performing with my band." Read morehere.
They're joined by The Company Band guitarist Dave Bone and Fu Manchu bassist Brad Davis on the work, which is to see a general release via iTunes accompanied by a vinyl pressing run of just 1000 copies.

"I managed to corner Lars and James at HQ," explains Nykolayko, "before they locked themselves in the control room with Greg Fidelman to start mixing the new album."
Ulrich updated fans on the project's status last month, saying, "We're now coming towards the end of the musical creative process and we're starting to look ahead and the process of how we're gonna share this record with the universe. The month of June is basically when we're gonna sit down and figure what we're gonna do with it all, what we're gonna call it and what's gonna be on it."
"If the record doesn't come out this year then it won't be because it's not done," he added. "It will be because there's some sort of cosmic reason that it would be smarter to hold onto it until next year. But the record will be done this summer." Read morehere.
"I figured that a mixture of 'Three Amigos' with a 'Dia De Los Muertos' twist," Zombie tells NPR, "by way of the opening credit sequence of 'Natural Born Killers' hosted by a Satanic Paul Lynde would make the perfect video for 'The Life And Times Of A Teenage Rock God'."
"Electric Warlock" was produced by Chris "Zeuss" Harris and presents Zombie alongside his touring band featuring guitarist John 5, bassist Piggy D and drummer Ginger Fish.
The rocker's sixth solo effort recently debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 with opening week sales of 41,000 units, of which 40,000 were in pure album sales. Watch the videohere.

"She's performed in productions including The Phantom Of The Opera, Broadway Street and The Beautiful Violoncellist. In 2015 she moved to Copenhagen to study at the Complete Vocal Institute.
"She then moved to London in January, following her heart's calling to become lead singer. Her influences include Muse, Pink Floyd, Radiohead and Dream Theater." Read morehere.
Yorke appeared at his neighbor's garden party on Sunday (June 12), where he performed a 30 minute acoustic set. The world learned about the appearance when a Reddit user's father texted him, according to NME.
"In Oxford at garden party with Suzie's neighbours, about to hear entertainment from neighbour Thom York of Radiohead," he wrote his son, misspelling Yorke's last name. His son corrected him, and then asked his dad to get an autograph or cut off a lock of Yorke's hair.
An attendee captured a brief moment from Yorke's set. Watch ithere.
Due July 22 and directed by Brian Lockwood (Bon Jovi, Metallica, Motley Crue), "Metal Meltdown - Featuring Twisted Sister Live At The Hard Rock Casino - Las Vegas" presents the group's complete concert, as well as Rockshow, a bonus documentary that takes fans through the band's 40-year career.
The May 30, 2015 concert with Twisted Sister, Extreme, Great White and Skid Row marked the first event in the Metal Meltdown concert series. The show was dedicated to the honour of drummer A.J. Pero, who passed away two months earlier at the age of 55 from a heart attack while playing on tour with Adrenaline Mob; the group brought in Mike Portnoy to handle drum duties and the rocker made his Twisted Sister live debut at Metal Meltdown.
"The decision to continue performing all the summer shows in 2015, not to mention the concert that this performance celebrates, was in jeopardy over the days immediately following A.J.'s sudden death," explains guitarist Jay Jay French. "We needed time to re-group and re-focus. Everyone was great. All the promoters of the huge European summer festivals that we were set to headline and Barry, the producer of this concert said, 'We understand. You all (meaning the band) have to do what makes you comfortable. Whatever the band decides has to be honoured and respected.'
"In the end, I believe we did what A.J. would have wanted us to do and Mike Portnoy was a very big part of that decision in both an emotional and artistic way. This performance captured herein just two months after A.J.'s death really was about our way to help memorialize the great A.J. Pero.
"The front four (Dee, Eddie, Mark and I) have had no one but A.J. behind us since 1982. This concert has A.J.'s influence permeating through our bloodstream in ways that I will never forget and when we cut to A.J.'s drum solo on the rear projection screen, we were all emotionally overwhelmed. Not since our reunion for NY Steel in 2001 (to honour and raise money for the families of the NYC police and fire department who died on 9/11) have I been moved to tears." Watch the videohere.
'The Empire' is the follow up record to their 2014 album, 'Tibi Et Igni', and it was recorded at Hertz Studio in Bialystok (Poland) and produced by Wojtek and Slawek Wiesawski.
Vader are also announcing the release of a special single as part of an EP release, the single is taken from their upcoming album. The full EP is titled 'Iron Times' will be released on August 12th.
Vader's frontman Piotr Wiwczarek had this to say, "I am so excited to announce the new Vader album, which will be released by Nuclear Blast again! 'The Empire' - which is the title of the upcoming full length - is due to be out at the end of September 2016.
"However, we have also prepared a special EP called 'Iron Times' to be released in August! There are two new tracks included on the EP, plus two bonus songs. Joe Petagno himself created the amazing cover artwork."See the EP tracklisting here.
The three-disc set includes a DVD and two CDs, recorded during their world tour in support of studio album The Grand Experiment, which took place in early 2015, featuring Mike Portnoy, Randy George, Eric Gillette and Bill Hubauer.
Morse says: "The Alive Again tour and this DVD is one of the finest we've ever done. I think you all are really going to dig it. Check it out and you'll understand how amazing this band is - I love it!" Read morehere.
The 2CD, 2DVD and Blu-ray package was recorded during the guitarist's Acolyte To Wolflight With Genesis Revisited tour last year and will be released on June 24 via Century Media/Inside Out.
He previously released a video featuring his performance of The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway from the DVD. Hackett says of the show's setlist: "It wasn't an easy job to decide what to include, but I think there was a good balance between old and new.
"What I have always born in mind when choosing the songs is what they mean to the fans. Time has a way of turning them into an emotional calendar for people.
"These songs take on an importance and become part of their lives. So, when I do them live, authenticity is important. I am aware that what I have to do is find a connection between nostalgia and what things can sound like in a contemporary setting." Watch the videohere.

Hudson tells FNM Followers: "I am working on a few ideas right now. It's something that I wanted to focus on after the tour ended, so it's a good place to be in. I'll probably take stock and see what comes of it sooner rather than later, so we'll see.
"I'm sure that I was the first to state in the press last year that I didn't bring any songs to the table. By the time I became involved in the process, there was already plenty of material to work with." Read morehere.
"Storm" was the first song that Tricia and I wrote with my bother Joel. He finally had enough time off from his other bands and we were living in the same city for the first time in ten years. Joel is one of the best rock bass players I've ever heard and the bass line in that song lets it show. It grows, changes and rarely repeats the same part twice, all while holding down the general groove. The whole album is filled with parts like this and I love them.
When we started working on this song it was clearly a new direction for the band and we were excited. At the same time we were all going through personal changes in our lives.
I work on the lyrics to songs for periods of weeks at a time as I stew over what Im trying to say etc. During this time I had an intense dream about a huge storm on the horizon. I think the storm signified big change coming and thats how the words came about.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the albumright here!
