*U2 recently spoke out on the criticisms regarding the surprise free release of their new album “Songs of Innocence” on iOS devices. The band’s manager Guy Oseary told Mashable, “It’s a gift from Apple. If someone doesn’t like the gift, they should delete it.” “There are people who are going to be thrilled to get a gift. There are people who are not going to care to have this gift. We knew all of that going in. No surprises here. If someone doesn’t like it, then great, that’s OK, delete it. … We just want to share it with as many people as possible. If you don’t want it and you don’t need it, delete it.” Meanwhile, Apple has created a help page explaining how to remove the album.

 

*Later this Fall expect a release of “Bon Jovi: Work,” a coffee table book of photos that offers a rare, behind-the-scenes look at Bon Jovi. The photos were taken by the band’s official tour photographer, David Bergman, during two world tours from 2010-2013. The 210-page hardcover art book is a collection of color and black and white photographs, back stage and at home, capturing “what it’s like to travel the world with our band, inviting you to be a part of the action,” writes Jon Bon Jovi in the foreword. “From the happy times to the harrowed, these images let you transcend the frame of the photograph to connect to specific moments whenever you open this book.” In addition to Bergman’s pictures of the band, another section of the book features private photographs personally taken by Jon Bon Jovi.

 

*After he and the band played their first show in 28 years in London, England Sunday night, Electric Light Orchestra frontman Jeff Lynne is causing some excitement by hinting he may be open to more shows. The reclusive musician, joined by original ELO keyboardist Richard Tandy, took the stage at BBC Radio 2's Festival in a Day in Hyde Park, delighting the crowd with a 17-song set list that included "Turn to Stone," "Livin' Thing," "Evil Woman," "Don't Bring Me Down," and the lost gem "All Over the World," from the 1980 movie Xanadu, which starred Olivia Newton John.

 

*Beginning next Monday, Conan O'Brien will celebrate the music of George Harrison on his late night talk showThe former Beatle will be honored the week of September 22 with performances each night by the likes of BeckNorah Jones, Harrison's only child, Dhani Harrison and friends and others. The weeklong musical tribute coincides with the release of George Harrison: The Apple Years 1968-75.  The deluxe eight-disc box set, which features the reissues of and bonus material from the artists' first six solo albums, will be available on CD and digital download September 22. Jones and Dhani will also participate in George Fest, a star-studded concert paying tribute to the late Beatle on September 28 at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles.

*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

Those fans will be well served with ‘A Passion Play: An Extended Performance,’ a 2-CD/2-DVD package that offers Steven Wilson stereo mixes of the original album as well as the Chateau d’Herouville sessions, plus 5.1 DTS and AC3 Dolby Digital surround sound and PCM 96/24 PCM stereo mixes of all the tracks and video footage from the era.

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.”
