Daily Specials-MONDAY

 

*The Who recently launched the North American edition of its 50th anniversary tour, and now the band is offering audio downloads of every show on the first leg of the trek via its online store.  Downloads will be posted within two weeks after a particular show takes place.  The Who kicked off its current outing on April 15, and the tour leg is scheduled to wind down on May 30 in Forest Hills, New York.  After a series of European dates in the summer, the band also is slated to return for a second North American leg that's mapped out from a September 17 concert in San Diego through a November 4 performance in Philadelphia.  You can check out the band's full itinerary at TheWho.com.

 

*Ronnie Wood is still hoping to organize a reunion tour featuring the surviving Faces members, but he says there's one big road block to overcome -- singer Rod Stewart's management. The Telegraph reports that during a London Q&A event this week promoting his upcoming book, How Can It Be? A Rock and Roll Diary, Wood explained, "[They] make everything about money and we're trying not to do that.  Why can't the three surviving guys from the Faces just get together and play for people?" In front of a cheering audience, Wood added, "That's what we want to try and do.  I think that would be brilliant." Although founding Faces keyboardist Ian McLagan died this past October, Wood said that he, Stewart and drummer Kenney Jones still are interested in a reunion trek, particularly after they got together in January to perform at Rod's 70th birthday party.

 

*Ailing blues legend B.B. King has announced on his website he is receiving hospice care in his Nevada home. The 89-year-old musician has been hospitalized several times in recent months due to complications related to his diabetes. He canceled all of his shows last fall when he suffered dehydration and exhaustion. “I am in home hospice care at my residence in Las Vegas,” he wrote in a message Friday. “Thanks to all for your well wishes and prayers.” No other details about the status of his health were disclosed.

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.”
