(Radio.com) Scott Mescudi (aka Kid Cudi) has checked himself into a rehab facility to battle 'depression and suicidal urges," the rapper revealed on Facebook.

Sharks Reportedly Love Heavy Metal and AC/DC

(Classic Rock) Sharks love heavy metal and rock music and have a particular appetite for AC/DC, according to a new book. The authors of The Mice Who Sing For Sex: And Other Weird Tales From The World Of Science claim studies show that sharks are drawn to the low frequency pulsing sounds (20-60 cycles/second) of heavy metal.

The book also claims great white sharks particularly favored the AC/DC songs You Shook Me All Night Long and If You Want Blood (You Got It), becoming calmer and less aggressive when the tracks were played to them.

Radio X DJ Lliana Bird and neuroscientist Dr Jack Lewis wrote the book, which is released on October 8 (Thursday) via Amazon Media. Other discoveries highlighted in the book include the results of a 2013 study in Japan which showed how four fish were trained to show their powers of recognition by giving them food in return for tugging a red bead in their aquarium whenever they heard a certain piece of music.

Metallica Go Behind The Scenes Of 'Moth Into Flame'

(Metal Hammer) Metallica have released a nine-minute video that follows the band as they write latest track Moth Into Flame. It's the second song to appear from 10th album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct, which arrives on November 18.

In the video , drummer Lars Ulrich takes the lead as they discuss the composition, which at the time had the working title Plow. After he persuades James Hetfield to reorganise a series of phrases, the frontman says: "That's awesome - going into that fast riff is so awesome!"

Hetfield goes on to discuss adding a "guitar doodling thing" that "might work." Producer Greg Fidelman then offers his own advice about being aware of repetition and thinking about the end of the song.

Later, Hetfield complains of playing a fast-moving riff he describes as "gih-gih-gih-gih," adding: "I like gih-gih-gih-gih, but I've got to get back in gih-gih shape." Watch the video here.

Prince's Paisley Park Museum Allowed To Open

(Radio.com) Prince's Paisley Park will be open for business, but not quite as planned. The Minneapolis estate will be allowed to open its doors for tours today (Oct. 6), Saturday (Oct. 8) and next Friday (Oct. 14), under a temporary order from the city council.

Tickets have already been sold and people have already made travel plans so the museum will try to accommodate guests holding tickets for other October dates on those three days, reports Billboard.

Full-time operation of the museum may not begin until December. On Monday, the Chanhassen City Council indefinitely postponed voting on a rezoning request by the trust company overseeing the late star's estate for the complex to be operated as a museum and said Tuesday that the request will come up for another vote "on or before" Dec. 20.

Lady Gaga New Song Called 'A Million Reasons' Previewed

(Radio.com) Lady Gaga launched her Bud Light x Lady Gaga Dive Bar tour last night (Oct. 5) in Nashville. Ahead of her performance, Bud Light shared a preview of their new ad featuring Gaga performing her next single "A Million Reasons" in a dive bar.

In the video, which is colored with blue and pink neon lights, Gaga sits on stage playing an upright piano. "You're giving me a million reasons to let you go/ You're giving me a million reasons to quit the show," she sings, repeating the phrase "a million reasons" over and over at the end. Her voice comes across much clearer on the simple PA.

Gaga co-wrote the song with Nashville songwriting staple Hillary Lindsey, who also worked with her for two other songs on Joanne. Lindsey may best be known for Little Big Town's "Girl Crush" among many other songs she's penned. Read more here.

Columbo Stream Song From Long Lost Album

90's indie-surf-meets bigbeat duo Columbo have released a stream of their track "Strawberry Ice Cream" from their long lost album, "We Know Who You Are," which is finally going to see the light of day on November 18th. We were sent the following background details about the album.

In 1999, Columbo were ready to roll. An unlikely mashup between sought-after dance remixer Trailermen and the bass player of UK ska and dub crowd-pleasers Maroon Town, Columbo were snapped up by Richard Branson's V2 label on the basis of their quirky single, "Rockabilly Bob". Actor/rapper Gary Beadle, pre-primetime TV and Spielberg fame, supplied the baritone vocals. The promo video even cast tap-dance legend Lionel Blair as a Wild West villain.

The reaction was instantaneous, the broad popular appeal obvious. "British surf-pop mavericks" (Sunday Express), "irresistible idiocy" (Melody Maker). What's On said "this is the song the Beach Boys would've made if they knew Quentin Tarantino".

The single was playlisted on BBC Radio 1, remixes from Trailermen and Soul Of Man racked up club rotations. Reviewers on Saturday morning TV raved about it, Chris Evans' TFI Friday came a knocking. "Hit, all the way", shouted Melody Maker. "Damned catchy", said Time Out.

But then things went South. Promotion stalled. Critical distributors choked- perhaps unsettled by the eccentricity of "Rockabilly Bob". The track still charted, but the duo were disillusioned, feeling they and the label were no longer on the same page. The planned second single was pulled at the last minute. Rather than release material without the support they deserved, Columbo walked out on V2. An unreleased treasure trove of pop genius was left to gather dust…

In 2016, Stuart, the boss of indie label Banoffeesound (a longtime Columbo obsessive), decided to do a bit of sleuthing and find out what happened. Like an episode of the TV show the band mischievously named themselves after, there was a mystery- "Whatever Happened To Columbo?" With some Google-fu and joining of dots, Stuart managed to track down Jules from Columbo, now a sought-after composer for film and TV. Sure enough, there was an unreleased collection of Columbo material - it existed. The lost treasure was found, and eventually the other half of the duo - now a well-known broadcaster - was back in the fray too. This wild and unpredictable laboratory of song-writing was bubbling again.

Now dusted off, polished and augmented, the album is finally, and for the very first time, getting the proper release it always merited. And for Stuart, the longtime Columbo fan, all he asks is for people to listen, to judge for themselves whether his passion and hunch were right all along. There's a reason for the buzz around Columbo in '99 - the album they had crafted is bloody brilliant. If completed it would've been one of 1999's albums of the year. Check out the song here.

Daft Punk Tour Rumors Sparked By Mysterious Website

(Radio.com) Daft Punk has only toured twice over the course of their career, the first time in 1997 and the second in 2007. For fans paying attention, that means 2017 would make it pretty likely that Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter will once again hit the road.

Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that the Lollapalooza website seemed to suggest momentarily they would be performing there in 2017. And even though insiders insist that Daft Punk will not be launching any kind of tour, a new website Alive2017.com has fans diving deeper into the rumors.

The website is pretty bare bones with a black screen featuring the words "ALIVE" written in white. The domain name itself harkens back to the two live albums Daft Punk put out following their two tours, Alive 1997 and Alive 2007. If visitors zoom in on the "I" in "ALIVE" they see a set of four numbers counting down to something. But what exactly? Read more here.

Gene Simmons Sings Praises Of X Japan's Yoshiki

(Classic Rock) KISS bassist Gene Simmons says X Japan leader Yoshiki is "braver" than he is onstage. A longtime music hero of Yoshiki's, Simmons features in the iconic Japanese band's documentary We Are X - which charts their rocky rise to fame through death, lineup changes and breaking cultural barriers at home and abroad.

Simmons tells Rolling Stone: "He's braver than I am. He has no problem showing his passion and crying and pain. I admire that. He doesn't care that people are looking and judging him.

"My background is full of pain. My mother was in a Nazi concentration camp and our whole family was killed off. Then early on, your father leaves, and all you've got is your mother, and I was an only child. Then you come to a new country and I can't speak English."

He adds: "For me Kiss was the armour, and your family was the band. And even that original band broke up. You can't rely on anything. At the end of the day, all you have is yourself.

"I'm not brave like him. He goes up onstage and it's like gestalt therapy, like primal scream with Dr Janov. Shrinks still want you to do that. They want you to talk about the pain to get it out.

"When you see Yoshiki onstage, purging himself, crying and rolling around on the floor, that ain't showbiz. That's real." Read more here.

Shep Gordon Says Supermensch Didn't Tell Whole Story

(Classic Rock) Shep Gordon admits he struggles with the on-screen version of himself in 2013 documentary Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon. The 2013 Classic Rock Award winner and longtime Alice Cooper manager says director Mike Myers didn't include many of his "failures" in the film, and instead painted him in a "beautiful, heroic" light.

He tells Rolling Stone: "Mike's a storyteller. He took the parts of my life and turned it into this beautiful heroic story and built in a lot of sympathy and some drama.

"What the film didn't do was deal with the failures. When I saw the movie, Mike was very nervous - did I like it, did I hate it? I said, 'You know, Mike, I'd love to have lunch with this guy.'"

The film also serves as a how-to guide for living, and explores the 71-year-old mogul's "compassionate business" concept - but he insists no one has all the answers in life. Read more here.
