Daily Specials-Tuesday

 

*A few nights after Steven Tyler performed for 20,000 people, he admitted he was scared to talk to 11 people and their families. It’s because Tyler was addressing graduates of the Maui Drug Court, which allows drug offenders to go to rehab rather than jail. Tyler said he was nervous because he was telling the grads his truth about being a drug addict and an alcoholic. He says it’s an honor to be part of a new society where judges and police officers know someone’s in trouble and offer a way to stay out of jail. Recently, Macklemore addressed a drug court in Seattle, where he was a successful graduate.

 

*A lawsuit claiming Led Zeppelin plagiarized “Stairway to Heaven” moved forward after a move for dismissal failed. The suit claims the band stole the song from Randy Craig Wolfe – aka Randy California – founder of the band Spirit. Now his heirs are suing for credit and royalties to the iconic rock song. “What happened to Randy California and Spirit is wrong. Led Zeppelin needs to do the right thing and give credit where credit is due. Randy California deserves writing credit for “Stairway to Heaven” and to take his place as an author of Rock’s greatest song,” said the plaintiffs in their complaint. The representation for Led Zeppelin challenged the suit, saying Pennsylvania courts had no jurisdiction in the matter. U.S. District Court Judge Juan Sanchez denied the motion to dismiss without prejudice, opening the door for Led Zeppelin’s attorneys to ask for dismissal again.

 

*The Who originally had been scheduled to launch their 50th anniversary tour with a November 26 concert in Dublin, Ireland, but the band has postponed that show and a gig that was to have been held two days later in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The reason given for rescheduling both events is "unforeseen logistical changes."  The Dublin concert, which will take place at the 3Arena -- formerly called the O2 -- now is scheduled for June 23, 2015, while the Belfast show at the Odyssey Arena will happen June 21. Meanwhile, last month The Who added a November 23 performance in the United Arab Emirates city of Abu Dhabi to its itinerary, and that concert now apparently will serve as the kickoff to the band's "Who Hits 50!" trek.  

 

*Last week, Bob Seger released his first new studio album in more than eight years, Ride Out.  The 10-track collection is made up mostly of tunes penned by the Michigan rocker, but also features four covers, including songs by John HiattSteve Earle and Australian singer/songwriter Kacey ChambersIt's not the norm for Seger to include so many non-originals on one of his albums, but the 69-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer stated that each of the covers on Ride Out is one that he wished he'd written himself.  One of these, Hiatt's "Detroit Made," even was chosen as the record's lead single. Seger says of the tune, an homage to the Detroit auto industry, "I just loved the subject matter, 'cause, you know, I'm [from] Michigan...we all love cars 'cause of…Detroit, and everybody loves their classic cars.  And I said, 'This is a natural.'"

 

*Carlos Santana will perform an instrumental version of "The Star-Spangled Banner" Saturday at Game Four of the 2014 World Series between the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals in San Francisco, a Fox spokesman confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

 

*Paul McCartney took to his Twitter account on Monday for a Q&A session with fans, during which the rock legend candidly, and often humorously, shared a variety of personal opinions. Among the many topics Sir Paul chatted about were his current favorite songs and the best gigs he ever attended.  McCartney said the tunes that he's enjoying most right now are the Foo Fighters' new single, "Something from Nothing," and the Sia hit "Chandelier."  As for his favorite concerts, Paul tweeted, "There are many," while singling out rappers Jay-Z and Kanye West's joint show. McCartney also used the Twitter event to premiere an unreleased demo version of the Wings tune "Beware My Love" that features late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham.  The track will appear on the deluxe, remastered edition of the 1976 Wings at the Speed of Sound album, which will be released on November 4.

 

*When The Rolling Stones kick off their rescheduled tour of Australia and New Zealand this Saturday, they'll do it without their longtime touring saxophone player, Bobby Keys.  According to a message on the band's official website, the 70-year-old musician, whose association with The Stones dates back to the group's 1969 album Let It Bleed, will miss the nine-date trek because he's been "a bit under the weather" and "is under doctor's orders to take it a bit easy for the next month." Filling in for Keys during the outing will be Karl Denson, who leads his own group, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, and was a founding member of the California-based band, The Greyboy Allstars. The Down Under leg of The Rolling Stones' 14 On Fire Tour begins in Adelaide, Australia, and runs through a November 22 show in Auckland, New Zealand.

Jethro Tull’s ‘A Passion Play’ Getting Deluxe Reissue Treatment

Jethro Tull, 'A Passion Play'
Chrysalis

Jethro Tull‘s 1973 album ‘A Passion Play’ is returning to stores this summer, with a fresh remastering job and loads of bonus material in tow.

Originally released in July 1973, ‘Passion’ served as the proper follow-up to 1972′s smash hit ‘Thick as a Brick,’ and found the band working overtime to come up with new material before a scheduled tour. The pressure was on after initial attempts to record a double LP at the Chateau d’Herouville in France ended in ruin.

Halford will need to cope with that British reserve a little more often in the near future; he can expect to hear a few more screams next month, when Priest’s new album ‘Redeemer of Souls‘ arrives in stores.

Judas Priest’s Rob Halford Explains ‘Metal God’ Trademark

Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford made the news a few years back when word got out that he’d applied for a trademark covering his ‘Metal God’ nickname. During a recent appearance on the long-running BBC talk show ‘Later with Jools Holland,’ he opened up about the reasons why.

“I would never put myself on that pedestal,” explained Halford when Holland broached the subject. “That’s the title the fans started to give me after the famous ‘British Steel’ album, where we had ‘Breaking the Law’ and ‘Living After Midnight.’” Nevertheless, he added, “It’s something I really cherish, and I don’t want anybody else to be the Metal God but me.”
