Tuesday Rock Roundup

Tickets for U2's North American tour went on sale yesterday, and records were set in East Rutherford, New Jersey (82-thousand tickets); Chicago (65-thousand); and Foxboro, Massachusetts (72-thousand). Second shows were added in each of those cities, as well as in Toronto. The tour starts June 30th in Barcelona, Spain, with the North American tour getting under way September 12th at Soldier Field.

Tonight FOX presents The Osbournes: Reloaded...Ozzy, Sharon and kids Jack and Kelly are back in semi-reality TV with a variety show that features stunts, pranks, taped comedy segments and music. Each episode features musical performance from Ozzy, Kelly and guest stars, like Fall Out Boy, who'll show up on the third episode...assuming it makes it that far. Pamela Anderson will make a guest appearance in segment titled "Guess the Guest".

Bob Dylan is giving you a free preview of his new album, Together Through Life, today with a free download of the song, "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'." It's available as a free download until midnight tonight at Bob Dylan dot com. The album will be in stores on April 28th. Dylan performs in Hannover, Germany tonight.

Queensryche launch yet another concept album today. But unlike the Operation Mindcrime albums, American Soldier is based on true life. Singer Geoff Tate penned all the lyrics after doing extensive interviews with veterans of every American war since World War Two. Tate admits that the project was overwhelming at first, but once he started doing more and more interviews, he found himself "wrapped up in it." He says his greatest hope for the project is that is "pays proper respect" to the people who've served in the Armed Forces over the past 60 years.

A home recording made by Jimi Hendrix in New York in 1968 will be auctioned off next month. The tape contains 14 tracks, including a version of Bob Dylan's "Tears of Rage" and songs from Hendrix's Electric Ladyland album. It is expected to sell for between 70- and 140-thousand dollars at the London auction on April 28th.


CDs: Chuck Berry You Never Can Tell (box set), several Bob Dylan reissues, Ian Gillan One Eye to Morocco, Stevie Nicks The Soundstage Sessions, Queensryche American Soldier

DVDs: Jeff Beck Performing This Week: Live at Ronnie Scott's, Stevie Nicks Live in Chicago, Marley and Me (Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston), Seven Pounds (Will Smith, Rosario Dawson), Slumdog Millionaire (Dev Patel, Frieda Pinto), Tell No One (Kristin Scott Thomas), John Wayne: Ultimate Collection, Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet: Volume 10, Dennis Miller: HBO Comedy Specials, Hope and Faith: Season One, Jim Gaffigan: King Baby, Milton Berle Show: Volume 3, Planet Earth: Seasons 3 and 4

Tuesday Rock Roundup

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band threw open the doors of Convention Hall in Asbury Park, New Jersey last night for the first of two rehearsal shows for their Working on a Dream tour. Taking the stage, Springsteen told the crowd, "Tonight is the night you get to be the guinea pigs for the rest of the world. Don't know if we got a show yet but we're gonna run through a bunch of songs and see how we do." They ran through seven songs from the new album, Working on a Dream, as well as some of classics and covers of "Mustang Sally" and "Seven Nights to Rock." The second and final rehearsal show is tonight.

Bob Dylan will team up with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp for a tour of minor league ballparks in July and August. Dylan and Nelson did this tour in 2004 and 2005. One can only hope it stops here again.

John Mellencamp has posted an essay on his website about what he feels is wrong with the music industry. "I've always found it amusing that a few people who have never made a record or written a song seem to know so much more about what an artist should be doing than the artist himself. If these pundits know so much, I'd suggest that make their own records and just leave us out of it." And in closing he says, "When all is said and done, unfortunately, it's not really about the music or the artist. It's about you and your perception of yourself and how you think things ought to be. And we all know that this very rarely intersects with what actually is. Just because you think this is how it should be only makes it just that: what you think; it doesn't make it true. So let's try to put our best foot forward and remember that anyone can stand in the back of a dark hall and yell obscenities, but if you want a better world it starts with you and the things you say and do."

Guns n' Roses have made a lineup change yet again, and added a new guitarist to their --Sixx AM's DJ Ashba. Ashba replaces Robin Finck, who left GNR to re-join Nine Inch Nails last year. With this announcement, summer GNR tour dates should come very soon. Ashba is just another long line in Slash and Izzy Stradlin replacements for Axl Rose. The list includes current guitarists Richard Fortus and Bumblefoot, and former replacements Bucklethead and Gilby Clarke.

The Jimi Hendrix releases keep coming. Later this year, we can expect two albums, including his 1969 performance at London's Royal Albert Hall, which will also include a DVD component with behind-the-scenes footage. Before the two shows he did there, he was followed by a camera crew for a month and they captured him at home, in London, at shows and more. The Hendrix catalog sells close to two-million copies worldwide each year with downloads in the US at more than 900-thousand. There is reportedly enough Hendrix material to release over the next 10 years.

Didja miss Metallica last time they were in the area? They're heading back to North America in the fall, including Indianapolis September 17th at the Conseco Fieldhouse, and the Van Andel in Grand Rapids on November 9th.

The late Sid Vicious has been voted the most controversial rock artist, according to a poll on Orange-dot-co-dot-uk. Two-thousand people were polled and Vicious received 25-percent of the vote. Ozzy Osbourne was second and Keith Richards third.

Roger Waters has given his blessing for a stage adaptation of The Wall to take place in Galway, Ireland this Thursday through Saturday with the proceeds going to a number of charities.

Simon and Garfunkel will tour Asia and Australia in June.

Romeo and Juliet's Balcony Opens for Weddings
Rossella Lorenzi, Discovery News

March 20, 2009 -- The House of Juliet, with the legendary balcony where Juliet Capulet is said to have pined for Romeo, will soon be used as a venue for weddings, city officials in Verona have announced.

The 13th century family home of the Cappello family who, according to legend, were the Capulets of
Shakespeare's tragic play, has been always a place of pilgrimage for lovers from all over the world.

The tradition for couples is to first stroke the right breast of the languid bronze statue of Juliet in the courtyard -- the gesture is believed to bring good luck -- then leave love notes on the house's walls and Gothic wooden doors.

Now the city wants to strengthen its romantic reputation by offering love-struck couples the chance to tie the knot in the courtyard right below the famous stone balcony.

"We are simply promoting Verona's reputation as the city of love," Daniele Polato, the city official who made the proposal, told Discovery News.

WEDNESDAY Rock Roundup

(We got distracted yesterday...busy St. Patrick's Day & all...)

There may be a reason why Bob Dylan is always touring. His neighbors in Malibu, California are complaining about the smell emanating from a portable toilet being used by workmen on his property. Apparently the smells that are blowing in the wind are making some neighbors sick, with one family taking refuge outside their bedrooms at night so they don't end up "Tangled Up In Poo". That same neighbor is so fed up that he installed five industrial-sized fans in his yard to try and blow the odor back at Dylan, but it's no match for the wind whipping off the Pacific Ocean. Malibu town officials are looking into the complaints. A spokesman for Dylan was unavailable for comment. He starts a tour of Sweden on Sunday...far from the port-a-johns of his workmen.

Last year, Fantasy Records re-released the first six Creedence Clearwater Revival albums. Each one was re-mastered and contained bonus tracks. Bass player Stu Cook and drummer Doug Clifford were fine with them being re-mastered, but not with the bonus tracks. Cook tells us those tracks were "outtakes from outtakes. Just absolute low-quality stuff." Cook and Clifford currently tour as Creedence Clearwater Revisited.

Judas Priest will follow the lead of The Who, Deep Purple, Van Morrison, Cheap Trick, Motley Crue and many others next year when they perform one of their albums in its entirety on tour. Priest will celebrate the 30th anniversary of their 1980 album, British Steel, which produced such Priest staples as "Breaking the Law" and "Living After Midnight." As a result, plans to do their latest album, Nostradamus, in its entirety in concert has been put on hold.

Nowhere Man, the movie about John Lennon's early life, will be in theaters in December following the news that the Weinstein Company has acquired the U-S rights to the film.

The owners of the popular New York City pizzeria Artichoke Basile have announced plans to open a dessert joint called Led Zeppole -- named in honor of the band and the street fair pastry.

Ron Silver & Altovise Davis

Ron Silver died Sunday at his home in New York, of esophageal cancer. He was 62.

Despite a laundry list of great performances, he's best known in recent years for his role as political strategist Bruno Gianelli on The West Wing.

A political activist in real life as well, Silver (long a champion of liberal causes) switched his loyalties from Democrat to Independant, and supported George Bush after the 9-11 attacks. He even spoke at the 2004 Republican Convention. Ironically, his character did the same on The West Wing.

He was one of the good ones, and he'll be missed.

Also, Altovise Davis died Saturday, following a stroke earlier last week. She was 65.

News of Altovise Davis’s death was delivered by her publicist who explained Davis had been admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center two days before following the stroke.

The couple met in 1967 on the set of Gold Boy. The dancer and actress was Sammy Davis Jr’s third and final wife. Sammy Davis Jr died in 1990 from cancer.

Late last year, we spoke with the author of Deconstructing Sammy, a fascinating memoir about Sammy that paints a less-than-stellar picture of Altovise. We're hoping to have him back on this week.

Hot Dogs Used In Gun Heist

(thanks, Royseph)


Police believe three men used hot dogs to distract a Labrador retriever and make off with seven guns.

Raw hot dogs were found strewn about a Bridgewater home, where the Labrador resided.

The hot dogs were tracked by police to a supermarket and officers used surveillance video to identify a suspect.

Ronald Elizondo, of Raritan Borough, along with Franklin Township residents Adrian McKoy and Tyshinue Haskins, are charged with burglary, conspiracy to commit burglary and other offenses.

Somerset County's prosecutor believes the guns were the target of the heist.

Tuesday Rock Roundup

Over the weekend, U2 announced their first stadium tour since '06. The U2 360-Degrees Tour will kick off at the Nou Camp Stadium in Barcelona, Spain on June 30th. The 15-city North American leg gets under way at Soldier Field on September 12th and ends in Vancouver in October. The tour gets it's name from the round stage that will give fans an unobstructed view of the band. Except in Section 357, which of course has a better view of Lake Michigan than it does the actual field.

After last week's news that Guns n' Roses would do a stadium tour this summer, the rumor mill kicked into overdrive Friday and spit out the potential co-headliner: Van Halen. Nothing has been confirmed, but it's worth nothing that both acts are managed by Irving Azoff, the man who reunited the group with David Lee Roth and created the band's biggest tour ever. Of course, anything involving Axl Rose could go up in smoke at any moment, so fans might not want to get their hopes up. And remember, no matter how cool this sounds on paper: there's no Slash, no Duff. And the GNR/Metallica idea in the early 90s was a train wreck.

In sorta-Van Halen-related news...Sammy Hagar, Joe Satriani, Michael Anthony and Chad Smith almost decided to change the name of their group, Chickenfoot. Anthony tells Classic Rock magazine, "It was just supposed to be a name that we'd use for a while. And then the rumors spread about the band, everybody used that name, so we thought, let's call it Chickenfoot: it all comes down to the music anyway."

Jimi Hendrix's childhood home is once again in danger of being torn down. In 2006, the home was moved from Seattle's Central District to a lot across the street from the cemetery in Renton, Washington where he is buried. But now the owner has to move it again by March 27th or else it'll meet the wrecking ball.

Aerosmith spent some time in their Boston-area studio last week with producer Brendan O'Brien as they continue to work on their first album of original material since 2001's Just Push Play. Check out a video update from Tom Hamilton at AeroForceOne-dot-com. Singer Steven Tyler is giving back to some of his fans by participating in the next session of the Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp, April 29th through May 3rd in Hollywood, California. Tyler will hold a question-and-answer session with campers and share some insights and stories from his career.

Metallica's James Hetfield now knows better than to order Indian food in Sweden. Hetfield got food poisoning after the band had the food delivered to the Globen Arena in Stockholm Sunday afternoon. (A local paper said Hetfield ordered "samosas, chicken tikka masala and lamb in tomato and yogurt sauce.") Metallica ended up postponing the gig after Hetfield was taken to the hospital. He was released late Sunday night. The show will be rescheduled when the quartet returns to Europe in May.

Boston and Stryper singer Michael Sweet's wife, Kyle Rae Sweet, died last Thursday from ovarian cancer. She was 52.

Der Crue on der next Vinyl Monday...

I Watches The Watchmen (one of 13 million fanboy opinions you can find online, and just as worthless, really)

For starters, I thought the movie was great: it could have even been one of the greatest films of all time if the filmmaker wasn't chained to the source material. And he had to chain himself to it, or Zach Snyder would have been destroyed on a molecular level by the people who've loved this story for more than 20 years. Small wonder it took so long for someone to have the cajones to finally make this flick. Imagine being the first person to make a Shakespeare movie, or the first Russian director to tackle a Tolstoy. That's a bit of pressure, that.

As a graphic novel, as literature...Watchmen is without peer. Not even the stories that made Frank Miller famous in the genre really compare to the perfect symmetry at play in the book. It's a story that gets better every time you read it, I can't really name another that does that after so many years.

As a movie, the story falls a little flat in the fan expectation department. There's so much that happens that you can't help but disappoint everyone a bit. You disappoint the rabid fanboys because you have to cut so much out of the story to make it work on the big screen. You disappoint the people who don't know the story because there's so much crammed into the nearly three hours it runs, and you can't live up to the hype. No matter how cool the framework is. No matter how bitchin' the special effects are.

I thought the movie was very well done, despite this. It won't be remembered as one of the greatest comic flicks...but it sure as hell won't be mentioned in the same breath as Spiderman 3 or Superman IV: The Quest For Peace.

The violence, while it didn't bother me, is pretty stark. It caught much of the audience off-guard and earned that R rating.
And, yes, there's a fair amount of blue penis in it...but not as much as the reviewers are bemoaning. All of the actors (with one exception, I'll get to that in a bit) are very well cast and do their characters proud (okay maybe the guy playing Nixon was a little weak, too). I let out a laugh when I saw who they cast as imprisoned crime boss Big Figure...great choice.

And maybe I'm tainted a bit, because I never cared for the character, but Malin Akerman did nothing for me as the second Silk Spectre. I think she's a fairly weak actress, didn't dig her in either 27 Dresses or that Ben Stiller crapflick she did a couple years back (so bad I don't feel like looking up the name). I don't think she's cut out for this acting THING: I'd rather she open a bakery or something, maybe hire Ben Affleck so we can be spared his future work, too.

Now...what I loved about Watchmen:
  • The opening titles were incredible, I loved the way the Minutemen and Watchmen kept inserting themselves into famous historical events.
  • Subtle little changes (spoiler alert) like having Dreiberg visit Veidt instead of Rorshach, the choice to leave out the death of Hollis Mason, etc...
  • The effects were great, start to finish.
  • The pacing decisions were wise ones, I thought. When they excluded was for a reason.
  • Bubastis! Just not red Bubastis.
  • This is a stupid thing, but I liked how everyone's glasses looked right out of a 1985 display counter. The cars were right, too. I like accuracy in my period pieces, damnit. They did a good job with it. The WTC was even put in.
  • A lot of the signs were perfect, just like they looked in the book.

Without revealing anything, I'll say this: Craig had it absolutely right Friday morning when he said you could never, EVER pull off the ending from the book and have it work. The way they wrapped up this movie was respectful to the story without following it too closesly. Many will bitch about it, but I loved it. Best possible way to make the movie work, in my opinion.

And I missed Tales Of The Black Freighter. I'm looking forward to seeing it come back on the DVD.

Tuesday Rock Roundup

Today is the 78th Anniversary of The Star-Spangled Banner becoming our official national anthem.

U2 releases their 12th studio album today, No Line on the Horizon. It was recorded in Morocco, Dublin, London and New York, and the 11-song album took two years to record. So much material was recorded that they plan to release another disc sometime in the next year. U2 will do their second of five nights tonight on The Late Show With David Letterman. The band is being honored by the city during their stint as a piece of West 53rd Street...which runs alongside the Ed Sullivan Theater, where The Late Show is being temporarily renamed U2 Way. Mayor Michael Bloomberg will do those honors today.

Rush is back in stores today with Retrospective Three (1989-2008), the third volume in their compilation series. It is available as both an individual CD and a CD/DVD set, and features tracks taken from their two decades with Atlantic Records. Geddy Lee tells us, "This is kind of a collection of songs that were kind of the more popular songs from their given albums during the times they were released." The CD also contains an unreleased live version of "Ghost of a Chance," recorded in Atlanta during Rush's 2008 Snakes and Arrows tour, as well as re-mixes of "One Little Victory" and "Earthshine." The DVD boasts 10 music videos made during the Atlantic years, and their recent performance of "Tom Sawyer" on The Colbert Report.

When Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band tour Europe this summer, they may have a new drummer for some of the shows. N-B-C has confirmed that Max Weinberg will be with Conan O'Brien when he takes over The Tonight Show on June 1st. In an interview with Rolling Stone, E Street Band guitarist Steve Van Zandt says, "I think Max will be there for most of it." No names have been mentioned yet as possible fill-ins.

Yesterday marked the 25th anniversary of the release of the movie This Is Spinal Tap, and the actors who played the hapless British metal band -- Harry Shearer, Michael McKean and Christopher Guest -- marked the occasion by holding a press conference at L-A's House of Blues to announce their Unwigged and Unplugged tour. The six week, 30 city acoustic tour, which kicks off April 17th in Vancouver, Canada, will see the trio performing songs from the repertoires of both Spinal Tap and The Folksman, the group they played in the 2003 film, A Mighty Wind. They also revealed that they are currently putting the finishing touches on a studio version of the first Spinal Tap album, which was recorded live for its original 1984 release. The new album, which will contain a number of bonus tracks, will hit stores May 26th. The Tap will play The Chicago Theatre May 30th.


  • The aforementioned U2 and Rush
  • Music From The Motion Picture Watchmen CD (My Chemical Romance, plus classic hits by Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, & more)
  • Thin Lizzy Still Dangerous: Live At The Tower Theater Philadelphia 1977 CD previously unreleased
  • Australia is on DVD and Blu-Ray w/Nicole Kidman & noted song and dance man Hugh Jackman. The nearly three-hour-long film now includes deleted scenes.
  • Beverly Hills Chihuahua DVD
  • Before the live-action version hits theaters on Friday, you can get the animated version of Watchmen. The six-hour, 12-episode Watchmen: Complete Motion Comic pack is a panel-for-panel re-imagining of the graphic novel.
  • And TV that's gone digital this week includes the first season of My Two Dads, the second season of Nash Bridges, the fourth season of The Hills, the eighth season of Seventh Heaven and the 10th season of ER.
