"He's doing very well," Young tells Germany's NDR.de. "I mean, under the situation that we had, it was very good that he volunteered and said, 'Hey, if I can help, let me try.' So he's been very good. And he had to learn a lot of songs very quickly, and he's done a great job."

"It was a painful and sad thing to have to cancel shows, we don't really do that," Kiedis told ET Canada. "I'd rather play deathly ill than not at all but in this particular instance I was starting to go down to the ground. I got some help and now I've got to figure things out."

He began the long road to recovery in January but reported yesterday that he suffered a setback which meant he had to undergo further medical treatment.
He said: "One of the screws in my ankle came out and broke through the skin. I didn't even know that was something that could happen. I had it removed today and go in for surgery to replace all the current hardware in there so I don't get another bone infection.
"It delays my recovery longer which means I'm further away from walking on my own. It's irritating, it's disheartening and it's defeating but in the words of a very wise man, 'There's no set back that can set me back.'" Read morehere.

He tells The Wave NW: "We rehearsed Rust In Peace for a year, then we went into the studio and we cut it live. There's no click track on that record - it's really raw and has a lot of energy.
"Rust In Peace is the milestone album, because it's not using the click, it's about being tight. You've got to go into the studio and be prepared. The next record, Countdown To Extinction, is done to click and it's overdubbed. It captured the energy live, but nothing like Rust In Peace."
He continues: "Using the clicking track puts the 'overhead' on - the governor - which only lets you break out into a certain energy field, where you can't get crazy the way you would live.
"If you play to a click, it's done. You're done. The energy stagnates and gets sterile and I can't even sit through that. It's not gonna happen. If you go in and write the songs on the spot, then you don't really play what occurs naturally, if you play it a 1000 times." Read morehere.
He recently said: "I ended up leaving because it lost the art to me - it lost its artistic integrity in my eyes. I was just selling out, and that's not what I do."
Now guitarist Bruce has responded, telling Loudwire: "What's really annoying is, he's an Englishman singing country music with an American accent.
"Where's your integrity? What are you talking about? We've done what we've always loved to do from day one. We didn't change - he did." Read morehere.
Flynn was given the Washburn Dimebolt guitar by the Pantera guitarist onstage at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago in 1997. But it was stolen, along with three other guitars, during a break-in at Flynn's home and he's been on a quest to get it back ever since.
His prayers were answered when Holly Cherry found the Dimebag guitar - along with an Epiphone prototype that was also stolen - in a storage until that she won via an online auction for just $10.
Flynn says: "I was pretty devastated when it gone stolen from my house when it got robbed six years ago. Thank you so much. This came back to me. Dime's looking out, somehow."
Ms Cherry explains that she had no idea how significant the find was, until a friend noticed Flynn's name written on the neck of the Epiphone. Read morehere.
With sales to date of over six million copies, Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band's April 1976 double live album Live Bullet may be the biggest-selling album in history to have missed the Top 30 initially. Live Bullet sales took off after Bob Seger's breakthrough Night Moves, his tenth album, skyrocketed later that same year.
1968's "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man" hit single had been the "bullet" in the chamber, but during the ensuing seven years Seger added a clip full of songs including "Beautiful Loser"," the rapid-fire rocker "Katmandu", and the secret weapon "Turn the Page". As Bob explains to InTheStudio host Redbeard, playing with live ammo those next several years was challenging to prove that Seger was not firing blanks .
Bob Seger had this to say, "After "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man" did rather well, the next seven years or so were a little dry, and I've always called those years, 'Bob learns to make albums', because that's a whole different thing than making a hit single. I had to develop my writing because I was on the road constantly, where I really didn't have much of a chance to write. We were doing like 250 nights a year... At some point I said to myself, 'I really enjoy doing this. I really don't want to have a what musicians call a 'day gig'." Stream the specialhere.

The broke the news to fans via Facebook with the following post, "Toured with some good bands, toured with some bad ones. Met some great people, and some complete idiots. Started this band in a living room in San Francisco and ended up getting to see the world. Seen a million bands, scenes, trends, and people come and go- now it's our time. Everyone has jobs or careers that make doing this (even part time) next to impossible.
"One more EP, a split with one of our favorite bands, and some final U.S. shows will be announced soon. The current Canadian & European dates will be our last shows in those territories. Thank you for everything- this was one hell of a ride."

Fomer Alice Cooper band member Orianthi tells Rolling Stone: "I'm a big country fan. The great thing about country songs is the storytelling. They're really moving and well-crafted, and that's something Richie and I wanted to explore."
The album doesn't yet have a title or release date, but it's described as a "vocal and guitar-driven" work. "There are songs where I'm singing and he's backing me up, and vice-versa, and songs where we're singing together," Orianthi says. Read morehere.
