The All-Request Classic Rock Cafe

Daily Specials-FRIDAY

 

*One of Elvis Presley’s light blue jumpsuits is being auctioned during Elvis Week at Graceland in Memphis. Graceland officials say the auction will also feature a jacket Presley wore in the movie “Viva Las Vegas” and a diamond-and-gold necklace he gave to Sammy Davis Jr. More than 170 items will be sold on August 13th. The items come from third-party collectors and nothing for sale is from the Graceland collection.

 

*Courtney Love (widow of Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain) found herself caught up in protests in Paris against the Uber ride app during a journey from Charles de Gaulle airport yesterday. Taxi drivers have been protesting against Uber because, they say, the facility undercuts their service. Love criticized the French president in a series of tweets, claiming she would have been safer in Baghdad after her taxi became caught up in the protests. “Dude @kanyewest we may turn back to the airport and hide out with u.picketers just attacked our car #ParisUberStrike,” Love tweeted. “they’ve ambushed our car and are holding our driver hostage. they’re beating the cars with metal bats. this is France?? I’m safer in Baghdad.” The singer-songwriter shared a photo of a car window smashed in, as well as an Instagram video of a group of men angrily speaking to her Uber driver.

 

*Proud parents Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa will support their daughter Jessica's journey to the Olympics by heading up a benefit supporting the U.S. Olympic Equestrian team. The Springsteens will serve as honorary chairs for the January 22, 2016 United States Equestrian Team (USET) Foundation's "Rockin' Rio" Olympic games benefit in Wellington, FL. The benefit will raise funds for the USET Foundation to further support the United States Equestrian Team horses and riders as they prepare to compete at the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

 

*A plaque memorializing the historic meeting of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards at a train station in England will be corrected at the request of former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman. "Mick Jagger and Keith Richards met on platform 2 on 17 October 1961 and went on to form The Rolling Stones -- one of the most successful rock bands of all time," reads the commemorative plaque, which is displayed at Dartford Station in southeast England. But Wyman argues the message is inaccurate, because it omits the importance of founder Brian Jones.  "Brian Jones wanted to form a blues band and he enlisted each member one by one," Wyman tells the BBC.  "He gave the name The Rolling Stones, he chose the music and he was the leader.”  Jones died in 1969. Jagger and Richards did, indeed, meet on the train. The two lads also attended the same elementary school and bonded over a love of blues records on that historic ride.  However, Wyman says Jones was the one who recruited each member into the band, and the plaque should reflect the truth.

 

*Music from the Original Series Aquarius, a new 15-song soundtrack from the NBC series, is available now at all major digital service providers. And it's a diverse collection to say the least!  The album opens with The Who's classic "I Can See for Miles" and also includes their hit "The Seeker." Since the '60s-themed series revolves around a Los Angeles homicide detective's hunt for Charles Manson, the soundtrack fittingly features a song by Manson himself, as well as one by actor actor David Duchovny, who stars in Aquarius as homicide detective Sam Hodiak.  NBC announced Thursday that the series has been renewed for a second season.

 

*Peter Frampton fans will have something to look forward to in late summer when three of his albums are reissued by Omnivore Recordings. Premonition and When All the Pieces Fit will arrive digitally and physically on August 28. They will be followed on September 4 by Now. While he was a full decade past the glory days of Frampton Comes Alive when he originally issued Premonition in 1986, Frampton scored a minor hit from the album with "Lying." When All the Pieces Fit arrived three years later, but there was a 14-year gap between that and Now, which came out in 2003. The CD reissues for all three albums will include expanded art work and new liner notes from writer Scott Schinder.

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.”
