50-Year-Old 'Lost' Rolling Stones Recording Found In Attic

(hennemusic) A lost Rolling Stones song has surfaced 50 years after it was originally recorded by the band. The Telegraph reports "No One Loves You More Than Me" was recorded in 1964 during one of the group's first sessions at IBC Studios in London's Portland Place.

According to Tracks Auction, the song is has never been released by the Rolling Stones nor is it documented anywhere and is not known to exist other than on this tape. The track is described as "an upbeat pop song that sounds very much like a tune that could have come out of Merseyside c. 1963."

Jeremy Nielsen, a friend of the sound engineer at the studio, saved the tape from being destroyed back in the day and stored it in a box in his attic for more than 50 years before listening to it contents.

The 17-minute recording includes nine tracks from the band's first studio sessions in March 1963 and then in 1964, which came before they released their self-titled debut album.

Among the unreleased songs on the reel-to-reel tape are the lost track, two previously unheard versions of the ballad "As Tears Go By", and "Congratulations", a version of which later surfaced on the 1973 compilation "No Stone Unturned."

Nielsen is putting the tapes up for auction by Tracks Auction on April 3, but he would be just as happy to see the Stones buy the masters themselves. "I couldn't believe it when I heard the tape," says Tracks Auction owner Paul Ward. "I thought there was no way that there could be four unreleased Stones tracks sitting there. In an ideal world, Jeremy would like the Stones to buy them and release them." Read more here.

Axl Reportedly Says Guns N' Roses Plan 'Whole' Tour

(hennemusic) Axl Rose reportedly said that Guns N' Roses plan to do a full tour with Slash and Duff. A fan ran into the singer in front of the Loews Atlanta Hotel on Friday, and shared a photo of the chance meeting on Instagram.

The fan, Mark Guglielmo, says he wished the singer good luck on the six upcoming reunion shows next month, to which Rose reportedly replied: "Thanks, man, but we're going to do a whole tour."

Guglielmo noted that Rose looked healthy, adding, "I don't want to speculate or spread rumors, but it really looked like he's been working out a lot. His arms looked muscular."

The partially-reunited Guns N' Roses will perform two shows each in Las Vegas, Mexico City and at Coachella next month. To date, the group has only officially announced the involvement of Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan, but an autographed drumhead donated by the group to be auctioned off at a benefit concert last week for the people of Flint, Michigan affected by a water contamination crisis added three more names to the lineup - guitarist Richard Fortus, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and drummer Frank Ferrer. See the fan's photo and post here.

Ritchie Blackmore Being Sued By Record Label

(hennemusic) Ritchie Blackmore is being sued by Italian label Frontiers Records over a 2015 project by his band Blackmore's Night. Frontiers, which paid Blackmore a $220,000 advance, is seeking a minimum of $150,000 in damages.

The New York Post reports the suit - filed in a Manhattan federal court last week - alleges the guitarist blew off promotion commitments in support of the band's 10th album, "All Our Yesterdays", which contributed to poor sales.

Blackmore reportedly signed a three-year deal with Frontiers Records to license and distribute his 2015 release worldwide, provided he made "reasonable best efforts" to support the disc.

During a summer tour to promote the album, the label alleges the guitarist cancelled dozens of media appearances and interviews, including six TV and 25 to 30 tabloid sessions in Germany alone. Read more here.

Opera Singer Covers AC/DC On Spain's Got Talent

(Classic Rock) A contestant on Spain's Got Talent wowed the judges with an unexpected performance of AC/DC's Highway To Hell. Cristina Ramos started off with a flawless performance of a classical aria, but stunned the audience and judging panel by suddenly ripping off her dress to reveal torn jeans and launching into the rock hit.

The 37-year-old impressed so much that one judge pushed the 'golden buzzer,' meaning Ramos bypasses the next round of auditions and goes directly through to the live shows.

AC/DC, meanwhile, are still searching for a singer to replace Brian Johnson on upcoming live shows. Johnson was ordered to stand down as he risks going deaf if he continues to perform with the band. Watch the performance here.

Megadeth's Dave Mustaine Careful To Avoid Trouble With Lamb Of God

(Classic Rock) Dave Mustaine wants to keep Chris Adler with Megadeth for as long as possible - but he's being careful not to cause any problems with the drummer's main band, Lamb Of God.

And he's delighted that the stand-in chosen by Adler happens to be available to play all the shows he'll be needed for. Adler appeared as guest musician on Megadeth's latest album Dystopia, and he's committed to playing as many shows as he can with the thrash icons.

But despite having been a fan of Mustaine all his life, he has no plans to leave Randy Blythe and co. Mustaine tells WSOU: "We're really happy that the guys in Lamb Of God aren't protesting him playing with us. We don't want to cause any problems in that camp. It's a big deal - everybody's talking about the record. Everybody's talking about the four of us. We don't want to cause problems."

He continues: "It would be great if Chris could do every single date, but there's going to be some he can't. For those, we've got a drummer that Chris picked. Tony Laureano played with Nile and Dimmu Borgir. He's a great guy.

"He's got a couple of solo things that he's doing, but fortunately for us, it works out that he's available for the shows that Chris is out with Lamb Of God." Read more here.

"I remember being in the studio and I was singing it and trying to keep back from crying the whole time, thinking about my grandpa and just being away from my kid and wife and stuff and I got to the last chorus and just had to stop.

"I've never had anything like that happen to me before. But it was definitely happening, and it was real. I can't really describe it, but it got me." Check out the video here.

Tremonti Streaming New Song 'Dust'

(hennemusic) Alter Bridge offshoot Tremonti have issued a lyric video for the title track to their forthcoming album, "Dust." Due April 29 and produced by Michael "Elvis" Baskette, the project was recorded during the same sessions as 2015's "Cauterize."

As a result, "Dust" also features the lineup of guitarist/vocalist Mark Tremonti, guitarist Eric Friedman, bassist Wolfgang Van Halen and drummer Garrett Whitlock.

"Some of my favorite songs are on the second record," says Tremonti. "The title track, 'Dust', I think, has the best chorus of the whole recording process. 'Dust' has my favorite solo. The opening track, 'My Last Mistake', is one of my favorite songs. It's got the big ballad of the two records. It's definitely not the 'b-sides' of 'Cauterize.'" Check out the new song here.

"Staring into the cold eyes of Death, she wishes to change everything, to go back, to live again. This leads us to House Of Eternal Hunt. It is how things used to be, how they were supposed to be.

Entombed AD Vocalist Loses Legal Battle With Former Guitarist

(TeamRock Radio) Entombed AD vocalist Lars-Goran 'LG' Petrov has lost his legal battle to stop former guitarist Alex Hellid selling beverages under the band's original moniker.

Hellid will be able to sell band-labelled drinks after Petrov's appeal to stop him was rejected by the Swedish Patent And Registration Office. Petrov filed a letter of protest to block the move, saying Hellid was acting in "bad faith" and that there was a desire to "deceive the public," Blabbermouth reports.

The former axeman had registered the trademark for Entombed under spirits production in 2014, after a legal fallout following the band's lineup change resulted in the group being forced to amend their name to Entombed AD. Read more here.

Tesseract Star Explains Reason For Early Vocal Approach

(Prog) Tesseract's bassist Amos Williams says the band felt they had to use guttural vocals in their earlier music to get ahead. He admits that the band initially felt they "had to do certain things to fit in," but says their widespread appeal then allowed them to break into the prog market.

Williams told FreqsTV's Into The Machine: "I feel that a lot of genres have expectations. When we started, I feel like we felt we had to do certain things to fit in.

"I definitely remember conversations about not being happy with the screamed guttural vocals, but saying to each other, 'We have to do this'. That was probably the first indication of where the band was going. Even on the first album, we could tell we were going to move away as quick as possible."

He continues: "As a young band, it allowed us to be a part of something that acted as a springboard. It immediately propelled us into an international market. It was a good thing to do that.

"If we had forged our own path at that point I don't feel we would have got the international acclaim that we did immediately." The band is the latest to appear on the FreqsTV web series Into The Machine. Watch the episode here.

(Prog) Ihsahn has released an online stream of his track Pressure. The song is taken from his upcoming album Arktis, which is set to be released on April 8 via Candlelight Records.

The Emperor frontman previously said of the album: "My focus for this album was to write within more traditional song structures and still give each song a strong individual identity, be that through a re-occurring melody, a chorus, sound design or the good, old guitar riff.

"I also wanted to explore this on the production side, blending organic rock sounds with more modern expressions." Check out the stream of the new track here.

A Day To Remember's Paranoia Is A One-Off

(Radio.com) A Day To Remember recently released a new song on an unsuspecting audience. Titled "Paranoia," the hard rock track was followed a day after with a video that garnered nearly 800 thousand views in just four days.

According to Jeremy McKinnon, ADTR's frontman, the song came together organically. "We took some time to get together and write with no real expectations, says the singer. The band took a trek up to Fort Collins, CO where they'd collaborate with Descendants' Bill Stevenson and recording engineer Jason Livermore. "That song just kind of came out of nowhere one day--and we were all really pumped on it. We went to New York and had Andy Wallace mix it. If people aren't familiar with who he is, he's one of the best mixers of all time if not the best mixer of all time."

Fans immediately theorized that a new album must be imminent, especially since the band would be heading out on tour with Parkway Drive and State Champs this May. Naturally, they must be touring new music, right? Wrong.
"Paranoia," says Jeremy McKinnon, is just a one-off. Read more

Signed Marillion Guitar Being Raffled Online For Charity

(TeamRock Radio) A Fender guitar signed by Marillion is being raffled online for charity. The 1998 Deluxe Super Stratocaster was signed by the band at Real World Studios in Wiltshire during the recording of their upcoming 18th album. It is said to be in mint condition.

A statement on the Virgin Money page reads: "Charlie was born on August 11, 2009. He was the Mortimer family's third beautiful son - their life was perfect, complete.

"Charlie went home to meet his big brothers on August 12, and they spent the most precious 24 hours of their lives together. The 'perfection', however, came to a very sudden and unexpected end when Charlie stopped breathing at home on Thursday, August 13." Read more here.

David Lee Roth Looks Back Youth Football Days On The Roth Show

(hennemusic) David Lee Roth recalls football-playing days from his youth on the latest edition of The Roth Show. The singer played Pop Warner football in his early days, something he recounted on last summer's Van Halen tour when he dedicated a song to NFL legend and broadcaster Frank Gifford following his death at the age of 84.

"As kids we knew nothing, later on we learned nothing, and soon after achieved nothing," says Roth in the episode entitled Victory Field. "My accountant says soon I'll have nothing. All this would've been impossible without football."

"Football has everything to do with who I am today and I would not be here without that," Roth told the crowd in Holmdel, NJ last August. "I played Pop Warner football religiously from the minute I was able to qualify until - like Menudo - I was too big and they kicked me out. I was no good, my enthusiasm far outweighed my abilities, and at least half of what I know I learned from Coach Kelly, Coach Brown, and my Dad was one of the coaches, too.

"I grew up with a poster of Bob Dylan on the wall, there's a picture of Jimi Hendrix on the wall, and there was a picture of Bart Starr, Vince Lombardi and Frank Gifford right next to them." Watch the episode here.
