Tool Make Kid's Dream Come True At Recent Concert

(Prog) Tool gave one young fan an experience he will never forget when they plucked him out of the crowd and had him act as roadie for drummer Danny Carey.

Guitarist Adam Jones picked the youngster out of the audience at the band's show at the Maverick Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. A video clip of the boy watching from behind Carey's position on the stage can be viewed below.

The footage was captured by Carey's girlfriend Rynne Stump. Tool say: "During one of recent Tool shows, Adam plucked this lucky fellow out of the audience - with his parents' consent, of course - and escorted him onto the stage behind Danny during the drum solo.

"Once there, he was given a drum stick - which he thought that he was supposed to hand to Danny - although what he really wanted to do was to keep it. I guess this means that he would rather be a drummer than a drum-tech when he gets old enough." Watch the video here.

Did Taylor Swift Write 'Better Man' About Calvin Harris?

(Radio.com) If Taylor Swift's fans thought it would take until her next album to learn why she and Calvin Harris broke up earlier this year, they may have just received a big clue.

Swift isn't releasing a new album soon, but it turns out that she penned Little Big Town's latest single off their forthcoming album, and the lyrics are, shall we say, interesting. Swift has made an art out of personalizing her romantic experiences, and many thought when she and Harris called it quits that he would inevitably make his way into her songwriting. Although Swift hasn't said one way or another who "Better Man" is about, some of the lyrics are very revealing, and re-listening to the song it seems possible to draw the connection to him.

"I know I'm probably better off on my own/ Than lovin' a man who didn't know/ What he had when he had it/ And I see the permanent damage you did to me/ Never again, I just wish I could forget when it was magic," Swift wrote in the opening verse. The words could be about anybody, but since Harris was her last long-term relationship (we're not counting the blip that was Hiddleswift) it seems reasonable that she's opening up in her own way about what went wrong, and why she felt she needed to end things.

But it's the bridge that contains the biggest punch to the gut, and if it's about Harris then someone please hand the man a box of tissues. "We might still be in love/ If you were a better man/ You would've been the one/ If you were a better man," she wrote. Read more here.

Desiigner Releases 'Zombie Walk' Video

(Radio.com) Who says Halloween has to end on October 31? Desiigner finds himself facing a scary scenario in his new music video for "Zombie Walk," off his debut mixtape New English.

The nearly nine minute video feels like a short film with "Zombie Walk" coming in between the narrative. In the story, Desiigner gets a call from friends at a party, but as he's trying to get to them his car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. A sickly farmer offers him a ride in his pickup truck, but things take a turn when the farmer slows down and tries attacking Desiigner.

He escapes the truck and makes his way to a spooky mansion, but the farmer appears to have infected him after all because Desiigner transforms into a zombie near the video's end. "Zombie Walk" doesn't stick to live action shots, though. As Desiigner undergoes his transformation, the video switches into an animated sequence that features him as an anime cartoon. Watch the video here.

Gucci Mane And Young Thug Release 'I Told You'

(Radio.com) Gucci Mane has teamed up again with Young Thug on the new track, 'I Told You." The project was produced by two Gucci Mane crew regulars Zaytoven and Mike Will Made-It.

Gucci opens by rapping, 'These slides are Buscemi, my drawers and wifebeaters Givenchy/A n—- be handsome, these white women say that they want me/They say that I'm country but I'm number one in the country/It's no need to tell me, I know you lil' n—-s is hungry."

Then fellow Atlanta rapper Young Thug takes over, delivering the second verse and the hook. "We live 'bout that cash talk baby/ I'm riding in NASCAR baby/ I'm down with that asphalt/ They know not to play with us, ay/ We strapped like the black hawks/ I got that boy leaking out blood/ I got that boy getting chunked, yeah."

Gucci Mane dropped Everybody Looking in July and Woptober in October, and he's preparing East Atlanta Santa for later this year.

Bruno Mars Performs Adele's 'All I Ask'

(Radio.com) Bruno Mars performed a version of Adele's 'All I Ask," which he co-wrote with the British pop star for her album 25. But he performed the song his own, adding R&B flavor, for the BBC 1 Live Lounge on Wednesday (Nov. 2).

Regarding the song, Mars told Rolling Stone, "We were aiming for that big, diva, ballad thing - that's what I envisioned." Mars added that the two superstars argued over the lyric, "Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do."

"'Lovers'? I don't know if anybody really says 'lovers,'" he said. "'Yeah, we're lovers.' 'This is my lover.' I was like, 'Should we rethink that?' But [Adele] was so gangster about it. She was like, 'Nope. That's what it has to be.' And she was right."

"It's this grand word that makes the song bigger because no one says it," he added. "Because nobody talks like that, it pops out. It's not 'what boyfriends-and-girlfriends do' - it's this over-the-top 'lovers.' Sometimes I play it on the piano, and I look forward to singing that part. It's f—ing perfect … Don't try to be cool. Let it be what it wants to be." Watch Mars sing Adele's "All I Ask" here.

Eddie Vedder Song Featured In Chicago Cubs' Thank You Video

(Radio.com) It may have taken 108 years, but for Chicago Cubs fans, and anyone who loves a good underdog story, Wednesday night's (Nov. 2) victory against the Cleveland Indians in the World Series was well worth the wait.

To say thank you to their fans, the newly christened world champions released a short video on Twitter on Thursday (Nov. 3) soundtracked by none other than Cubs fan Eddie Vedder.

In 2007, he wrote a tribute song for the team purportedly when legendary player Ernie Banks asked him to (via WGN). And in 2008, he released "All the Way," an anthemic sing along about one day finally getting the championship that had so long evaded the team.

At the time, the Cubs used "All the Way" to underscore a music video they released when they made the playoffs, and now they're using it once again to punctuate a brief video showing fans from all over the city rooting for their team. In the song, Vedder sings, "Some day we'll go all the way," and the video ends with the moving phrase, "Today is our day." Watch the video here.

Singled Out: The Lipstick Junkies' New Friends

The Lipstick Junkies are gearing up to release their new album "The Lioness Volume" and to celebrate we asked Greg Babinski to tell us about the single "New Friends". Here is the story:

We were already underway in the early stages of pre-production for The Lioness Volume, deciding on what songs would be on it, how they would fit together and what story they were trying to tell was. In my head, the feel to that point was positive, fun, care-free and soaked in a sort of straightforwardness. Summer was just starting, and the positivity in our music was a reflection of our mental state whilst writing and recording it. Music was, as it so often is, our sanctuary amidst the chaos and uncertainty of our own personal lives. I knew that those more melancholic truths had to be represented in our work for it to be complete, after all, summer would end before we were to be done.

As I looked within myself and the people closest to me, I saw a lot of negativity. Of course, everyone's personal situations was a little different; dealing with break ups, illnesses, new jobs and new cities, all different things that bring a new perspective to life. Situations like that provoke change, not so much good or bad as much as drastic, and there's a certain amount of ambivalence that accompanies situations like that.

The common thread was there, and as I started to see where we all connected I wrote this long, flowing chord progression that would become the chorus of New Friends. The rest of the music was put together in a way that represents that ambivalence, not too slow or dark, despite it coming from a place that might warrant such. The same approach was taken with the lyrics, as the idea of "new friends" really epitomized everything I wanted to capture. It's really a good thing, to have new friends, but the thought really incites bitterness, guilt because you probably shouldn't feel bitter, apathetic facades to deflect, justifiable rationalizations of it being for the best, and at the very least a sort of finality to appreciate. There's a lot to unpack, and it's something that happens all the time, so it made sense as the final piece in the story of The Lioness Volume because it really represented a truth for our summer's care-free and positive horizon, a truth that all summers must end, and that no matter how much better or worse things might be afterwards, they'll never be the same.

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