  • The Yardbirds Announce Fall US Tour Dates; Welcome Bowie Guitarist Earl Slick to Lineup

    Image Courtesy of The YardbirdsAfter postponing a series of spring U.S. tour dates "due to health concerns and extenuating circumstances," The Yardbirds now are slated to return to the States for a series fall shows.  The British blues-rock legends' upcoming itinerary will get underway with an October 30 concert in Norfolk, Connecticut, and is currently plotted out through a November 10 performance in Laughlin, Nevada.

    The Yardbirds also have revealed a new change to their recently revamped lineup: longtime David Bowie guitarist Earl Slick has signed on to take the place of founding member Anthony "Top" Topham, who briefly played in the band in 1963 and rejoined the group in 2013.  As previously reported, The Yardbirds -- who continue to be led by original drummer Jim McCarty -- also now feature singer/guitarist John Idan, bassist Kenny Aaronson, and singer/harmonica player Myke Scavone.  Idan previously played with the band from 1992 to 2009, while Aaronson an Scavone are new additions to the group.

    The Yardbirds currently have only seven tour dates on their schedule, but more shows are expected to be announced soon.  Here are all of The Yardbirds' confirmed fall U.S. dates:

    10/30 -- Norfolk, CT, Infinity Hall
    10/31 -- Bethlehem, PA, Musikfest Cafe
    11/1 -- Newton, NJ, The Newton Theatre
    11/2 -- New York, NY, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill

  • The Moody Blues' John Lodge Says New Solo Album Was Inspired by Days Passed While Looking Toward Future

    Esoteric Antenna10,000 Light Years Ago, Moody Blues singer/bassist John Lodge's first solo album since 1977's Natural Avenue, gets its release today on CD and vinyl.  Lodge says the new record pays homage to the musical styles that have influenced his work throughout his life while showing who he is today.

    He tells ABC Radio that the album's title came from a concept he had running through his "mind for a long time that the future's always in reach but the past is gone forever.  So, it doesn't matter if the past was one second ago, you can't ever get there.  But, the important thing about the past is that it's brought us to where we are today."

    Lodge says that in conjunction with the concept, he decided that the album should showcase "the diversity of styles that have influenced me over the years."

    The album is bookended by "In My Mind" and the title track, which both are reminiscent of the cosmic, spacey Moody Blues tunes of the late 1960s and early '70s.  The record also includes a tribute to 1950s rock 'n' roll, a couple of mid-tempo rockers boasting '80s-style production, an orchestrated ballad and an homage to jazz legends Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli.

    Among the most interesting recordings on 10,000 Light Years Ago is "Simply Magic," a melodic folk-rock song that reunites Lodge with his former Moody Blues band mates Ray Thomas and Mike Pinder, both of whom he's known since he was a teenager.  Lodge points that including Thomas and Pinder in the project fit nicely into his concept of the record.

    To record 10,000 Light Years Ago, Lodge said his goal was to work in the same collaborative way that The Moody Blues did when they made their classic early albums.  To accomplish this, he assembled a band featuring veteran rock guitarist Chris Spedding and two members of The Moody Blues' touring group -- keyboardist Alan Hewitt and drummer Gordon Marshall.  Although the musicians generally worked remotely in separate studios, John says he insisted that they share ideas and feedback about the tracks as the sessions progressed.

    The Moody Blues currently are winding down a U.S. tour leg that wraps up with a May 10 concert in Morrison, Colorado.  The band then will launch a European trek that's scheduled through a June 27 appearance at the U.K.'s famed Glastonbury Festival.  As for the possibility of him mounting a solo tour behind 10,000 Light Years Ago, he tells ABC Radio that it could happen depending on how the album is accepted.

    He adds, "If it happens, it'll be later this year."  Lodge also says that Spedding, Hewitt and Marshall have all expressed interest in joining him on the road.

    "What I'm really pleased about is they're all incredibly proud of the album," John notes.  "And that's really turned me on, that's really made me feel happy, that they're happy about it…that they're proud."

    10,000 Light Years Ago also is available as a deluxe CD/DVD set containing an exclusive interview with Lodge, behind-the-scenes footage from the album's tracking session and a promo trailer.

  • U2 to Appear on "The Tonight Show" This Week; Bono Seen Rehearsing Potential Bike Accident Sketch

    Credit: Paolo PellegrinAt long last, U2 will return to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon after Bono's cycling accident forced the band to cancel a scheduled week-long residency on the talk show late last year.  While the Irish rockers won't be playing for a week straight, U2 will appear on The Tonight Show this Friday, May 8.

    Lest you think any mention of Bono's accident would be pushed under the rug, the Daily Mail has published photos of the singer and host Jimmy Fallon rehearsing a sketch on the streets of New York City that prominently features bicycles.  In the photos, Bono and Fallon are riding on bikes, and a few shots show a Bono-dressed dummy being thrown into the hood of a car.

    Last November, Bono was riding a bike through New York's Central Park when he collided with another rider.  He suffered multiple injuries, including a broken left arm, a fractured shoulder blade and a fractured left eye socket.  The accident happened just one day before U2 was scheduled to undertake a week-long residency on The Tonight Show.  Bono recently told The New York Times that he is still unable to play guitar because of his injuries.

    Nevertheless, Bono and U2 will launch their North American iNNOCENCE eXPERIENCE tour on May 14 in Vancouver, Canada.  The Tonight Show airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET/10:35 p.m. CT on NBC.

  • Annie Lennox Concert Film "An Evening of Nostalgia" Released Today on DVD & Digital

    Blue Note RecordsAnnie Lennox’s new concert film, An Evening of Nostalgia with Annie Lennox, is officially out today in DVD and digital formats.

    The film features Annie, backed by a 19-piece band, performing a series of classics from her album Nostalgia, including “Summertime,” “Georgia on My Mind,” and “Strange Fruit.” She also sings her powerful rendition of “I Put a Spell On You,” which she performed at the Grammys this year and which was featured on the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack.

    "Every singer loves the challenge of interpreting truly inspirational songs,” Annie said in a statement. “Each one of these masterpieces stands as a lasting testimony to the brilliance of their creators -- their individual beauty, power and poetry continues to stand the test of time.”

    The concert concludes with a four-song selection of Annie’s own hits, both solo and with Eurythmics: “Here Comes the Rain Again,” “No More I Love You’s,” “Why,” and “Sweet Dreams."

    An Evening of Nostalgia with Annie Lennox was recorded January 28 at Los Angeles’ Orpheum Theatre. The film's available for purchase on its own in DVD, Blu-ray and digital long-form formats, or as part of a deluxe package that includes her Nostalgia album.

    Fans first got a taste of the concert film when it premiered on the PBS series Great Performances in April. You can watch a clip of Annie's performance of the classic “Memphis in June” from the film on Vevo.

  • Pink Floyd's Roger Waters, Nick Mason Say Reunion Not Happening; Waters Laments Digital Music Era

    Sean Evans; ABC NewsJust in case Pink Floyd fans haven't gotten the message yet, founding band members Roger Waters and Nick Mason again have revealed that there is little chance, if any, of the group reuniting.  In a new interview with The Times of London marking the 50th anniversary of the band's formation, the two rockers, who both are 71, express differing attitudes about a reunion, while agreeing on the slim likelihood of a tour or new recording project.

    "A reunion is out of the question," Roger tells the newspaper.  "Life, after all, gets shorter and shorter the closer you get to the end of it and time becomes more and more precious and, in my view, should be entirely devoted to doing the things you want to do."

    The singer/bassist adds, "One can't look backwards.  Well one can -- and I do, actually, and with some fondness -- but to try and walk backwards would be absurd."

    As for Mason, he says, "We have no plans," pointing that although he loves touring, longtime Pink singer/guitarist David Gilmour is "not at all keen."  He also notes that Waters is "difficult," and jokes that if there were to be a reunion, "it'll probably just be me."

    Nick adds that he lives in hope, and says he could see Waters, Gilmour and him doing something if another charitable event like 2005's Live 8 concert was organized.

    During the same Times interview, Waters also lashes out at the powers-that-be in the music business who he feels are responsible for making it so difficult for artists to make money from their music in the digital age.  He declares that he feels "enormously privileged…to have been around when…you could still make a living writing and recording songs and playing them to people."

    Today, Waters says, technology companies, who he calls a "gallery of rogues and thieves" have "interjected themselves between the people who aspire to be creative and their potential audience and steal every f***ing cent anybody ever made."

  • Barbra Streisand's Pooch Bites Flight Attendant on Private Jet

    PRNewsFoto/Columbia Records, Russell James, Copyright BarwoodBarbra Streisand's dog may look harmless, but apparently her bite is worse than her bark.

    Streisand was headed to Washington, D.C. on billionaire businessman Ron Perelman's private jet to lobby for funding for the Women's Heart Alliance last Tuesday when her 12-year-old Coton de Tulear, Samantha, bit a flight attendant on the plane.

    The pooch's aggressive behavior was unusual, according to a rep for the 73-year-old singer, who tells People magazine, "This never happened before. The dog has never had this kind of behavior."

    Streisand's rep claims "The flight attendant started petting the dog, and when it's a stranger, you put the hand out," the spokesperson says. "And the dog nipped at her, and it would be inaccurate to make it more than it is. Barbara felt terrible."

    The injury required stitches, according to People.
