Tuesday Rock Roundup

Paul McCartney is no stranger to having his fans read more into his songs and album titles than what is there -- who can forget the so-called clues on the Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road album covers. Now there are those who think the title of his forthcoming album, Memory Almost Full, is a perfect anagram of "For My Soul Mate L-L-M." L-L-M are the initials of his late wife, Linda Louise McCartney. A source tells the Sunday Mirror, "It is a title Paul has had on his mind for a long time -- even before Linda died. He'd never have used it if things were going well with Heather [Mills, his estranged wife]. But this record is very much the break-up album. It's an homage to the woman who remains the true love of his life -- and his soul mate." The album will be out in June.

The piano on which John Lennon wrote "Imagine" will be photographed at more places where historic violent acts have occurred. The piano will displayed Wednesday in Oklahoma City at the site of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bombing; Thursday at the former Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas; and Friday at Columbine High School in Colorado. A video documentary and book of the photos are in the works to raise money for charity.

David Gilmour denies rumors that he will be part of the Live Earth concerts on July 7th. His former Pink Floyd bandmate Roger Waters will perform at the New Jersey show.

Z-Z Top was recently inducted into the Southeast Texas Walk of Fame in Beaumont. Other stars on the Walk include Janis Joplin and country legend George Jones.

Ted Nugent's Concord, Michigan home was broken into on Saturday. Two A-T-Vs and two crossbows were stolen, but they were recovered and police apprehended two people. Nugent now lives in Texas.

New On CD

Former Bad Company frontman Paul Rodgers has a new C-D in stores today. Live in Glasgow was recorded last October on the last date of his U-K tour. In addition to such hits as "All Right Now," "Feel Like Making Love" and "Can't Get Enough," there are two new songs -- "Warboys (A Prayer for Peace)" and "Far Distant Shore." A companion D-V-D comes out May 29th. Rodgers says he planned to do the C-D and D-V-D before he toured with Queen in 2005 and 2006.
