Daily Specials-THURSDAY

 

*Phil Collins begins a comprehensive reissue campaign this fall. The “Take A Look At Me Now” reissue series will update all eight of his albums with extended and remastered deluxe editions. It kicks off on November 6th, with his 1981 debut “Face Value” and as well as his 1993 outing, “Both Sides.”

 

*Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister, 69, canceled a show in dramatic fashion Tuesday night in Texas. He stopped mid-song, told the crowd “I can’t do it,” and walked off stage. At the end, Kilmister came back and apologized to the confused crowd. This was the latest development in a North American Motörhead tour that has been plagued with difficulties because of Lemmy’s health. The tour kicked off on August 19th, supporting the band’s new album “Bad Magic” – the band cut their Salt Lake City show short and canceled another show at Denver’s Riot Fest after Lemmy had trouble breathing at high altitude. Motörhead have issued a statement explaining the situation and urging patience from their “motorheadbanger.”

 

*If you are a super-fan of Pink Floyd looking to grab up the iconic inflatable pig Algie, which can be seen on the front cover of the band’s 1977 album “Animals,” you’re out of luck. The item has now been withdrawn from Durrants auction after it was mistakenly placed on the British auction catalog. Algie has been safely returned to the band. “The pig is going back to Pink Floyd. They want it home again,” said Rob Harries, the owner of props builder company Air Artists. Algie was previously listed as an item for sale after Air Artists provided the auction house with a full list of items they had. However, it is now listed as “withdrawn from sale” by the auction.

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.”
