Daily Specials-Friday

 

*MARK DAVID CHAPMAN . . . the man who murdered JOHN LENNON back in 1980 . . . has admitted that he's SCUM. He told a parole board last week, quote, "I'm sorry for causing that type of pain.  I'm sorry for being such an idiot and choosing the wrong way for glory . . . many, many people loved him.  He was a great and talented man and they are still hurting." Chapman also said, quote, "I found my peace in Jesus.  I know him.  He loves me.  He has forgiven me.  He has helped in my life like you wouldn't believe."  That said, the parole board DENIED him his release . . . for the eighth time.

 

*Bruce Springsteen is writing a children’s book about a bank-robbing baby. The book, “Outlaw Pete,” is based on his 2009 song of the same name. The story tells the tale of a diapered tyke who embarks on a life of crime before reconsidering his thieving ways and settling down with a wife. Springsteen says he got the idea for the song, and thus the book, from the children’s book “Brave Cowboy Bill,” which his mother used to read to him when he was a child. Artist and writer Frank Caruso drew illustrations to accompany the lyrics. The book is due out November 4th.

 

*Due to production issues, the release of the latest albums in the Paul McCartney Archive Collection will be delayed. The classic Wings albums “Venus and Mars” and “At The Speed of Sound” will now be released on November 4th in the U.S. and not the previously announced September date. In keeping with the Archive Collection tradition, all aspects of the project have been overseen by McCartney. The packages include bonus and previously unreleased material.

 

*Bob Dylan will embark on a 31-date North American tour, beginning October 17 in Seattle. He will play multiple nights in most cities, wrapping up with four nights at New York’s Beacon Theater from November 28 to December 2. Tickets for most shows go on sale this weekend.

 

*The remastered Led Zeppelin IV packages will be released on October 28 as part of the second installment the band's reissue campaign.  Revamped versions of the group 1973 album Houses of the Holy also will hit stores the same day. In other Led Zeppelin-related news, Robert Plant has joined the droves of celebrities who have taken the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. A video clip, which can be viewed on Robert's YouTube channel, shows the rock legend standing in a nicely landscaped yard or park, ringing a little green bell.  Plant reveals that he was nominated by British comedy group Kiddy Lad, and then calls on "Sir Elton John, Sir Tom Jones, Sir Paul McCartney and my favorite commoner, Peter Gabriel" to take the challenge also.  He adds, "Come on lads, get wet.  Please don't forget to donate," before two men empty buckets of ice water over his curly locks.

 

*In March of this year, former Styx frontman Dennis DeYoung and his backing group rocked the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles with a set featuring many classic tunes from his old band's catalog.  The show was captured for a CD and video package titled Dennis DeYoung and the Music of Styx: Live in Los Angeles, which will be released on October 21. The performance, which was filmed with eight high-def cameras, includes such memorable Styx songs as "Lady," "Renegade," "Blue Collar Man," "Mr. Roboto," "Babe," "Best of Times" and "Come Sail Away," as well as a rendition of DeYoung's 1984 solo hit "Desert Moon."  Live in Los Angeles will be available as a two-CD/DVD set and a Blu-ray disc. The show also will premiere as an AXS TV special on the same day that Live in Los Angeles is released.

*Loverboy will return later this summer with the band’s first album of previously unreleased material in seven years.

The new LP, titled ‘Unfinished Business,’ has been a long time coming in more ways than one: The track listing brings together songs written throughout the band’s career — including one song, ‘Come Undone,’ first penned by guitarist Paul Dean some four decades ago. Befitting the disparate origins of the material, the album was recorded at various locations.

Dean contrasted the group’s current studio method with the painstaking way they cut 1985′s ‘Lovin’ Every Minute of It

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.”
