If anyone should know that you can't always get what you want, it should be the legendary Rolling Stones. Two weeks ago, the group announced that they would be serving as one of the headliners for the Glastonbury Festival. Not everyone in the Stones camp is pleased with this plan, however.
As reported by Ultimate Classic Rock this past December, Thin Lizzy member Scott Gorham announced the formation of a new group, Black Star Riders. Now, the group has confirmed details of their debut full-length effort, scheduled to be released in late May. 'All Hell Breaks Loose' is slated for release in the United States on May 28 via Nuclear Blast.
Despite not having released a new studio record in the last 20 years (1993's 'River Of Dreams' was the last one), Billy Joel has continued performing live all over the world, both solo and with occasional tour mate Elton John. But now it is reported that retirement may be in the cards for Joel on the concert front as well.
Leave it to legendary Canadian band Rush to change things up even after all these years. After having performed live as a trio for the past 40-plus years, the group has brought a string section to join them on stage for their 'Clockwork Angels' world tour, and they are enjoying having the extra manpower on stage.
Earlier today, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced a new round of presenters and performers who will take the stage at the 2013 induction ceremony on Thursday, April 18. Legendary rockers Jackson Browne and John Fogerty have been added to the evening's star-studded performance roster.
Since its release in 1973, Pink Floyd's 'The Dark Side Of The Moon' has become one of the best-selling records of all time. The album is certified for sales of more than 15 million in the United States alone, and stayed on Billboard's Top 200 for 741 weeks. It celebrates its 40th anniversary this month.
