He explained during a press conference that he is turning drumming duties over to his son Nicolas for the tour because of physical limitations. "I'll never play the way I used to. Something happened on the Genesis reunion tour. At the end of each show, I had a drumming duel with Chester Thompson, and one night something happened. It just went. I tried everything--bigger drumsticks and so on, but it just never came back.
"It's a mystery what happened, I just couldn't get it back. But I'm 65 and I played drums since I was five. I'd like to have the choice about being able to play, but I'm not going to cry myself to sleep about it."here.

The academy's permanent secretary Sara Danius says: "Right now we are doing nothing. I have called and sent emails to his closest collaborator and received very friendly replies. For now, that is certainly enough." Read morehere.
Last month singer Jimmy Adkins explained the songwriting process for their ninth record. He told TeamRock: "It was pretty collaborative, you never clock out of this gig, you're always working on material. Things might not turn into a complete song right away but you never throw anything out, and over time that generates a big stack of ideas.
"Some things are closer to being full songs, some things just stay as scraps for a long time, and all of it ends up going through a band editing process and being fleshed out into that state where it's a real song." Check out the new songhere.
The new edition will be released as a double LP on 180-gram vinyl by the group's label Foghat Records and select independent record retailers will also be offering posters with purchase.
Guitarist Bryan Bassett had this to say about the vinyl release, "A couple of things I love about new vinyl releases is the re-emergence of an old art form - ie: album cover art and the return of high-quality analog audio played through great old stereos being pulled from the garage and resurrected." Read morehere.

He's expected to make a full recovery, although the statement said it was possible he'd "performed his last show" with the band. Quo confirmed earlier this year that their current tour would be their last full-power trip, although they didn't rule out further acoustic outings.
Parfitt, 67, says in his note: "Here I am sitting in a hotel in Malaga. Just thought I'd drop you a little line to say how much I miss being part of the last year of rockin.'

As with any song, I write the two main parts, the music and the lyrics, I try and have each part compliment the other. I had an idea for the premise of the story for "Fiasco" but I wanted to get the music down first. I listen to a ton of Gary Clark Jr. and Dan Auerbach from the Black Keys. That is the hard driving rock feel I wanted to emulate. Moose (Zack) had some kick ass drums going that worked really well with the feel of the song. The guitar riff at the beginning was rattling around in my head for awhile so I started to expand on it and ended up with a strong chorus. The piercing distorted solo toward the back end of the song was improvised when we recorded at the studio. The guys in the studio heard me playing during a playback and told me to record it. Sometimes I guess the best stuff is made up on the spot.
I tried a couple times to write a "story" song and it is not easy for me. The idea for Fiasco was directly inspired by the Grateful Dead lyricist, Robert Hunter. Hunter wrote some of the all time greatest character/story songs of his generation. Named characters like August West, Tennessee Jed, Jack Straw and unnamed characters in songs like "Loser" where he is sitting at the poker table in the saloon and the lyrics in the song "Deal", that invoke card/poker playing metaphors, have all been favorites of mine for a long time. I wanted to create a character that could be sitting at the same poker table Hunter created. Once I pictured Danny Trejo as Fiasco I couldn't get it out of my head. I created the back story for the character to explain that he was dealt a pretty sh*tty, somewhat tragic hand in life. I wanted to tell a story where at least for one time the perpetual loser who had been kicked around most of life beats the odds and wins. The triumphant underdog. I don't think I am done with "Fiasco", the character may make an appearance on a future release. As I was doing some research, I came across the movie "Trinity is Still My Name"(1972) and the poker scene in that film. I knew right away that when I was done recording the song I would go back and edit the scene for the "Fiasco" lyric video.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, check out the aforementioned lyric video here and learn more about the albumright here!
