Robert Plant Too Old to Rock
Robert Plant Discards Reunion - Again
Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant has finally ruled out the band getting back together for a concert tour.
Plant, 60, said he has moved on to other things and was getting too old for two-hour rock shows in giant arenas across the world.
"I'm doing very well with Alison and I'm enjoying that, Plant said. "I still see Jimmy quite a lot and he's very complimentary and supportive of what I'm doing. But we are in different places now and you have to go on to do different things (House of Rock)
(antiMusic) AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson has inked new deal with Penguin Books to release a collection of thoughts and anecdotes he has jotted down over the years: He discussed it in a recent interview: "I like humor a lot, and cars have been a big part of my life. I'm lucky enough that I'm able to buy some of the exotic ones. Instead of doing drugs, I did motorcars. I'm not sure which one is more expensive.
"There's one story about me buying my first car, a Ford 100E. It was a rust bucket, obviously. I got in the car and drove about 100 yards and the seat went through the floor. I sat there on the road, and the guy who had sold it to me said '(Bleep), you've just fallen through the (bleeping) floor. Ahhhh, you should've checked that before you took it, me son.' That was me first hard lesson in motorcars."
"I took my first girlfriend out to a place called Shield Field. I had a Ford Popular. It was horrible. It was beige on the outside with a salmon pink interior. It was very old-fashioned, certainly not a chick magnet, but it was all I could afford
(PR) No Line On The Horizon, the new studio album from U2, will be released in North America on Tuesday, March 3, 2009.
Written and recorded in various locations, No Line On The Horizon is the group's 12th studio album and is their first release since the nine million selling album How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, released in late 2004.
The album calls on the production talents of long-time collaborators Brian Eno and Danny Lanois, with additional production by Steve Lillywhite.
Sessions for No Line On The Horizon began last year in Fez, Morocco, and continued in the band's own studio in Dublin, before moving to New York's Platinum Sound Recording Studios. It was completed at Olympic Studios in London.
U2â€™s stock option deal with Live Nation will cost the concert giant $19 million: The band has moved to sell the 1.6 million shares they acquired in their 12-year deal with the company. U2 was guaranteed $25 million when the contract was signed in March, when the shares were worth $25 million. With Live Nation stock slumping to only $3.91 a share as of yesterday, the 1.2 million shares is only worth about $6.3 million. Thus, Live Nation will have to cover the additional $19 million that was promised to the band.
Madonna struck a similar deal with Live Nation in October 2007, but the stock has plunged 83 percent since the deal. The Material Mom can start selling her shares in April â€˜09, and Live Nation will once again have to cover the $25 million
Madonna Divorce Settlement - OUCH
Cheyrl Crow and Fleetwood Mac Cleared Up
"What happened is that it was absolutely discussed and [Sheryl] absolutely was invited to join the band. The reason was I wanted another woman in the band, because I missed Christine so bad that it was just really hard for me to be in the boys club. What happened was, really... everybody thinks it was just because Sheryl got really excited and told the world about it a little bit too early. That wasn't what it was." In a nutshell she explained that joining Fleetwood Mac is like joining the Army.Â We went on the Say You Will tour,Â we thought it was forty shows. It was 135 shows.Modonna Divorce Settlement
The divorce settlement between Madonna and her ex-husband Guy Ritchie has finally been confirmed by the singerâ€™s rep. The deal calls for Ritchie to receive roughly $75 million of Madonnaâ€™s estimated $490 million worth. Part of the $75 million sum includes the coupleâ€™s country home in western England as well as a pub that was co-owned by the couple. The sum is also about twice what Paul McCartney had to pay when he divorced Heather Mills, and stands on record as perhaps the highest divorce settlement in U.K. history. - Rolling StoneBon Jovi Top Tour of 2008
