Daily Specials-Tuesday

 

*Black Sabbath has decided to record another album and do one last tour together. Ozzy Osbourne said he hoped to begin the writing sessions with guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler in early 2015. “We’re going to do one more album, and a final tour,” he said. “I believe Rick Rubin is going to [produce] it with us again.” Asked about a timeline, Osbourne estimated it would be “sooner rather than later.” “Obviously a lot of it is coming down to Tony’s health, he’s obviously got his cancer treatment, but we’ll get onto it next year,” Ozzy said.

 

*The new three-CD Genesis compilation, R-Kive, featuring a career-spanning selection of songs by the band and from the various solo projects of the group's members, hits stores today, September 30.  The 37-track collection is a companion piece to the new documentary titled Genesis: Sum of Its Parts, which will get its U.S. premiere on October 10 at 8 p.m. ET on ShowtimeBoth R-Kive and the documentary included the participation of Genesis' classic early-to-mid-1970s lineup -- singer Peter Gabriel, singer/drummer Phil Collins, keyboardist Tony Banks, bassist/guitaristMike Rutherford and lead guitarist Steve Hackett.  In putting the retrospective album together, each musician got to choose three songs from his non-Genesis material for the project.

 

*Last week, Phil Collins revealed that, despite rumors, he was not planning a full-fledged return to performing.  Now, in a new interview with U.K. newspaper The Daily Mail, the former Genesisstar has come forward with some other revelations, including the fact that he fairly recently underwent treatment for alcohol abuse. The singer/drummer says his troubles with the bottle began a few years back, after he'd stopped touring and his ex-wife Orianne moved with their two young children and her new husband from Switzerland, where Phil has a residence, to Florida.

 

*KISS star Gene Simmons is rarely speechless, which makes him the perfect guest for AXS TV's The Big Interview.  In a new episode premiering tonight at 7p.m., the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and entrepreneur chats in detail about a variety of topics with famed newsman Dan RatherAmong the subjects Simmons discusses is his impoverished childhood in war-torn Israel, being abandoned by his father at the age of seven and his mother's experience as a survivor of Nazi concentration camps.  Gene also will chat about his high-profile romances with Cher and Diana Ross, his enduring yet bumpy relationship with wife Shannon Tweed, his many business ventures and, of course, his long tenure in his famous rock band.

The new LP, titled ‘Unfinished Business,’ has been a long time coming in more ways than one: The track listing brings together songs written throughout the band’s career — including one song, ‘Come Undone,’ first penned by guitarist Paul Dean some four decades ago. Befitting the disparate origins of the material, the album was recorded at various locations.

Dean contrasted the group’s current studio method with the painstaking way they cut 1985′s ‘Lovin’ Every Minute of It

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.”
