Eagles Cofounder Randy Meisner's Wife Fatally Shot

The wife of Eagles co-founder Randy Meisner was fatally shot in an accident discharge of a weapon she was reportedly moving at their Studio City, California home on Sunday (March 6th), according to Radio.com.

When North Hollywood patrol officers arrived at the home they found Lana Meisner suffering from a single gunshot wound, according to the Los Angeles Police Department, and investigators reportedly later found that her death was accidental. Police had visited the residence early in the evening.

Randy Meisner was a founding member of the Eagles with Glenn Frey, Don Henley and Bernie Leadon. His song "Take It To The Limit" was a major hit for the band and a staple of their live shows during his time in the group. Meisner left the group after their widely successful Hotel California tour in 1977. Read more details here.

Glenn Hughes Hopes For Deep Purple Rock Hall Reunion Jam

(Classic Rock) Glenn Hughes is still hoping he and David Coverdale will be allowed to perform with Deep Purple at the band's induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame next month.

The pair were part of the band's Mark III lineup alongside Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Paice and Jon Lord, then the Mark IV version with Tommy Bolin in Blackmore's place.

Current frontman Ian Gillan recently said that only the 21st-century "living, breathing" lineup of the band would perform, as a response to present members Steve Morse and Don Airey being left out of the induction.

Blackmore reported he'd been "banned" from attending, although Deep Purple's management said he'd only been advised that he wouldn't get to play.

Now Hughes tells Billboard: "There's a lot of gossip and innuendo about who's saying what. I'd love to play. I'd love to sing. And so would David. A month ago David said to me, 'Shall I reach out to Ian to figure out what we're gonna do?' He came back and told me that there's a problem that Don and Steve aren't getting inducted and there's all sorts of scenarios with that. I said, 'Well, I'm just going to stay out of the way,' and Coverdale is as well.

"If Ian wants to run the show on behalf of his Deep Purple, that's his business. My business is to show up and gracefully accept my award." Read more here.

Paramore In Legal Battle With Former Member

(TeamRock Radio) Paramore and former bassist Jeremy Davis have commenced a legal battle over his entitlement to a share of the band's income. Davis left last year in what was described as a "painful" split, with Hayley Williams and Taylor York saying they were "excited for what Jeremy's going to do next."

The Tennessean reports that Davis last week filed a lawsuit against his former colleagues and Williams' company Varoom Whoa after he was refused access to financial records.

She argues that he was an employee rather than a partner in the business, while he says he's entitled to a share of royalties, tour revenue and other income.

Davis' lawsuit says that Paramore were founded as a partnership between him and Williams, and York was an employee until becoming a partner in 2008. The bassist says he took part in decision-making over the business, adding: "Thereafter, and at all times relevant hereto, Davis, Williams and York shared equally in all net profits generated by the partnership." Read Williams' lawyer's response here.

The Enid's Robert John Godfrey Announces Retirement From Touring

Jimi Hendrix Record Store Day Release Announced

(BM) Legacy Recordings and Experience Hendrix L.L.C. have announced a special Record Store Day vinyl LP reissue of the Jimi Hendrix Experience's 1969 album Smash Hits. This year's Record Store Day will be taking place on April 16th. We were sent the following details:

Carefully restored from the original analog master tapes, and featuring original poster and alternate cover art, Smash Hits includes timeless classics like "Purple Haze," "Hey Joe," "Red House," "Fire," plus eight more essential tracks that showcase the eclectic genius of Jimi Hendrix, forever cementing his status as a groundbreaking guitarist, songwriter and arranger.

Released in July, 1969, Smash Hits served a few purposes. It was the Jimi Hendrix Experience's very first compilation album, originally conceived in 1968 by the group's UK label as a vehicle to compile the group's hit singles that had not yet appeared on the LP format. Jimi's original U.S. record label Reprise sought to create its own version (just as it did with the group's 1967 debut Are You Experienced combining essential songs such as "Remember" and "Can You See Me" with popular favorites such as "Purple Haze" and "All Along The Watchtower." It also introduced North American fans to his signature blues song "Red House." Recorded at De Lane Lea and Olympic Studios, the version of "Red House" that appears on Smash Hits derives from different sessions than the original take found on the UK version of Are You Experienced (recorded at CBS Studios). It was, thus, exclusive to this collection for the world at the time of release.

Smash Hits proved immensely popular upon its release. The Experience was the highest grossing touring act in the world and the album came on the heels of the group's largest ever U.S. tour. The album has since served as a critical introduction to the Hendrix canon for successive generations of fans.

This exclusive RSD version of Smash Hits will include a recreation of the poster that came with the original U.S. LP release, depicting band members Jimi Hendrix, Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding dressed in western attire on horseback. The photograph, taken by Grammy-winning photographer Ed Thrasher at Warner Bros. film studios in Burbank, CA in early 1969, was initially intended as cover art for the package. Ultimately, the iconic multiple photo image montage by Dezo Hoffmann was decided as the U.S. cover. For the first time ever, Thrasher's photo will finally grace the cover of Smash Hits, a mere 47 years after the plan was conceived. See the tracklisting here.

Filter Release 'Take Me To Heaven' Video

Patrick said of Crazy Eyes: "On the last record, there was another guy at the label who signed us, and I felt a responsibility to him. He wanted a big rock sound so I let the guitars be the main focus.

"With this record I said, 'Let me focus on being the kind of artist I was when I was at Warner Bros' and Wind-Up was way into that. It's way more of what we used to be and so much of where we are." Watch the video here.

Last In Line Album Release Was Bittersweet For Band

(Classic Rock) Last In Line guitarist Vivian Campbell has told of his sadness that bassist Jimmy Bain never got to see the band's debut album hit the streets. The Dio offshoot's debut Heavy Crown was released last month, just weeks after Bain died of lung cancer. But the record was actually completed a year earlier and the band took the decision to delay its release while Campbell underwent cancer treatment.

Now Campbell, who is also a member of Def Leppard, says the timing robbed Bain of the chance to see the record being released. Campbell tells About Entertainment: "The response and the reviews thus far to the record have been very, very encouraging. It's such a bittersweet crossroads that we find ourselves at because Jimmy didn't live to see it.

"It's super sad because the record was actually in the can for a year. It was ready to be released last spring and we elected not to release it because we believed in it so much that we wanted to wait until we all had a clear schedule to go on tour to promote it. It's just super sad that we waited so long and got to the 11th hour, and Jimmy didn't live to see it." Read more here.

Mikkonen spoke about the band's upcoming album, "Jomsviking", about how Amon Amarth created its distinct sound and explained to us the current situation regarding the departure of their drummer Fredrik Andersson last year.

About Andersson's departure: "I don't really want to go into details regarding Fredrik, but basically we just separated. Its kinda like a marriage that doesn't work and you get divorced and that's kinda what happened to our band. Right after that we started to work on our new album and we didn't wanna work with anybody we did not know so that's why we took in Tobias and he is an old friend of the band, we've known him for many many years. He was with us through the whole working process towards when the recording was finished.

"Obviously he cannot do the upcoming dates so we have another guy that we are preparing for the upcoming tour. But it's so in early stages that I don't want to tell you who he is at this point but we are going to take it quiet easy and whoever is going to be, it's gonna be good. I have no worries."

Singled Out: The Flux Machine's Love and Affection

Alt-rockers The Flux Machine just released their new album "Louder!" and to celebrate we asked Luis Accorsi to tell us the story behind the single "Love and Affection". Here is the story:

Our latest single "Love and Affection" is a story about not appreciating/recognizing when someone cares for you more than they do themselves and you selfishly ignore and take for granted all the love they pour on to you.

When the inevitable breakdown comes, you recognize that you lost more than you will ever have again and this is a supplication for endearment that we all need, just as much as the oxygen we breathe. The conclusion is obvious, we all need love and affection and we shouldn't ever turn our backs on those who love us.

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