Daily Specials-TUESDAY

 

*Don Henley recently announced his first solo album in 15 years, titled “Cass County,” due on September 25th. The record will see the famed Eagles songwriter emphasizing his country roots, collaborating with the likes of Miranda Lambert, Merle Haggard, Dolly Parton, and Martina McBride. To support the album, his fifth career solo affair, Henley will embark on a month-long tour of North America. Beginning in Phoenix on October 3rd, the trek will see Henley performing on stages of varying size, from the modest Beacon Theatre in New York City and Ryman Auditorium in Nashville to the huge Forum in Los Angeles. The tour wraps up with a November 12th appearance at Philadelphia’s Academy of Music. The tour will also feature opener Shawn Colvin.

 

*Ted Nugent continued to voice his disapproval over the way Americans have expressed heartache over Cecil the lion’s killing. The musician voiced his disapproval yesterday on his Facebook page, denouncing those who have shown more compassion for a lion than the 5 servicemen killed shot and killed at a U.S. Naval and Marine Reserve Center in Ohio last month. “Shame on all who know the name of a lion but not the US Military heroes who were gunned down by the subhuman allahpuke in Chattanooga. Shame on you all.” Nugent’s message comes on the heels of rumors that charges will be filed against Naval Lt. Commander Timothy White for opening fire against the Chattanooga shooter.

 

*ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons will release his first-ever solo album, “Perfectamundo,” on October 23rd. Inspired by Cuban music, Gibbons is joined by a handpicked group of musicians dubbed The BFG’s on the project, which hearkened back to his early days when he studied Latin percussion in Manhattan with its preeminent virtuoso, “Mambo King” Tito Puente, a friend of Billy’s bandleader dad. Gibbons has continued to work with ZZ Top while completing “Perfectamundo,” and says the project was made with the blessings of Beard and Hill.

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.”
