*U2’s longtime tour manager, Dennis Sheehan, was found dead yesterday morning in his hotel room in West Hollywood. “With profound sadness we confirm that Dennis Sheehan, U2’s longstanding tour manager and dear friend to us all, has passed away overnight. Our heartfelt sympathy is with his wonderful family,” Arthur Fogel said in a statement. Bono released a statement on U2.com, “We’ve lost a family member, we’re still taking it in. He wasn’t just a legend in the music business, he was a legend in our band. He is irreplaceable.” U2 played the second of five concerts in L.A.’s The Forum last night.

 

*Mötley Crüe is once again calling on fans to vote on the itinerary for its final tour – “All Bad Things Must Come To An End.” In April the band added more North American dates to the trek, following input on social media, and now the group is asking you to #DemandtheCrue in Europe. Fans have more than 30 cities to choose from when casting their vote on Demand.Motley.com including Berlin, Paris, Prague, Rome and Stockholm. You can also use the hashtag #deamandthecrue to request European tour stops on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

 

*Pink Floyd's surviving original members, bassist Roger Waters and drummer Nick Mason, reunited on Thursday morning to unveil a commemorative blue plaque at the site of the London school where the band first formed.  Waters, Mason and late Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright all attended Regent Street Polytechnic between 1962 to 1965, and founded the group while they were attending the college. According to The Evening Standard, Waters said during the unveiling ceremony, "We are hugely gratified to be here and to have the plaque.  It's an honor." Mason, meanwhile, reflected on his days at the college while suggesting that more money should be allocated for education.  "Living as a student was a fantastic way to live.  Although I'd like to see more government grants introduced," he said.  Mason added, "I spent my grant on curry, I think, mainly.  But sensible people need the money in order to further their education and study." Waters and Mason also paid tribute to Wright, who died of cancer in 2008, citing his "hugely important" contributions to Pink Floyd.

 

*As a member of KISS, Paul Stanley has reaped the benefits of the band's appetite for selling merchandise, and now the singer/guitarist is set to launch his own lifestyle brand company.  The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has teamed with the Epic Rights marketing company to create the Paul Stanley: Royals & Rebels brand, which will be introduced next month at the Licensing Expo trade event in Las Vegas. Among the various products expected to be included in the Royals & Rebels brand are men's clothing and accessories, food, alcoholic beverages, footwear, cookware, home furnishing items and much more.  Look for KISS items at various retail outlets by the fall of 2016.

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.”
