The All-Request Classic Rock Cafe

Daily Specials-FRIDAY

 

*Deadheads have pounded the USPS to get tickets to the final Grateful Dead shows. The band’s representative says more than 60,000 envelopes containing more than 350,000 ticket requests have been received as of Monday. The Dead have a history of selling concert tickets by mail. They will perform their final shows together in Chicago in July. Because of the overwhelming success of the mail-order program, the Dead will not do any more pre-sale tickets and the new public on-sale date has been moved from February 14th to February 28th via Ticketmaster.

 

*A prosecutor denies ever promising immunity to a crew member working on a film based on Gregg Allman’s autobiography. District Attorney Jackie Johnson says in court papers assistant director Hillary Schwartz was only promised that anything she said in an interview would not be used against her. Schwartz is one of four people charged with involuntary manslaughter and trespassing after a train slammed into a railroad bridge last February where the crew was filming. A camera assistant was killed. Schwartz wants a judge to dismiss the charges, saying prosecutors offered her immunity in exchange for an interview, and then charged her anyway.

 

*Ringo Starr’s new solo project, “Postcards From Paradise,” is due out on March 31st. “Postcards From Paradise” was produced by Ringo and recorded at his home studio in Los Angeles and features collaborations with friends and family including Joe Walsh, Benmont Tench, Dave Stewart, Ann Marie Simpson, Richard Marx, Amy Keys, Peter Frampton, Nathan East, and Glen Ballard.

 

*An official trailer for the recently announced Aerosmith Rocks Donington 2014 concert film that's set to show in theaters across the U.S. on February 26 has now premiered online.  The minute-long clip features a montage of exciting footage from the rock legends' performance at the U.K.'s massive Download Festival, which took place last June. The video includes segments of performances of such Aerosmith classics as "Sweet Emotion," "Love in an Elevator," "Janie's Got a Gun," "Walk This Way" and "Dude (Looks Like a Lady)." Aerosmith Rocks Donington 2014 will be shown in more than 300 U.S. theaters, and is the first in a monthly run of cinematic concert events dubbed the "Classic Music Series."  The screenings will begin at 7 p.m. local time.  

 

*ZZ Top will team up with modern rockers Weezer next week for the first installment of a new Jimmy Kimmel Live! segment called "Mash Up Mondays," that will feature unlikely one-off collaborative performances by two popular music acts.  The Texas trio and Weezer will join forces to form "Wee-Z Top" -- a name coined by host Jimmy Kimmel -- on this Monday's episode of the late night show, which airs on ABC at 10:35 p.m. in case you missed it, ZZ Top visited Jimmy Kimmel Live! this past Monday, January 26, and performed three tunes -- the band's recent song "Gotsta Get Paid" and the classics "Tush" and "La Grange."  You can watch video of the performances online at the Jimmy Kimmel Live! official site andYouTube channel.

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.”
