The Doors to Release New Song ‘She Smells So Nice’ Shortly

It’s been more than 40 years since Jim Morrison died, and we haven’t exactly had a shortage of Doors compilations over the ensuing decades, so you could be forgiven for thinking we’d heard everything there was to hear from the band’s original lineup.

Paul Rodgers Releases Charity Single on His Birthday

After spending decades as one of the most recognizable voices in rock — and selling millions of albums along the way — Paul Rodgers is probably a pretty difficult guy to shop for. But you don’t need to worry about getting the former Free, Bad Company, and Queen frontman anything for his birthday this year, because he went out and gave himself a present.

And the best part? Rodgers’ gift is a new song that doubles as a fundraising effort for some of his favorite charities. It’s better to give than receive, right?

Paul McCartney Joined by Ron Wood at Three-Hour London Concert

Paul McCartney played his only London gig of 2011 last night (Dec. 5) — and he made it count, delivering a hits-packed, three-hour set to his O2 Arena fans, including several songs he’d never played in the UK before.

But that wasn’t all McCartney had in store for fans: as the evening drew to a close, he told the crowd he had a “surprise” for them before bringing out Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood, who joined McCartney for an energetic performance of ‘Get Back.’

Jimmy Page Sings Praises of Dead Blues Legend Hubert Sumlin

He was never exactly a household name, but Hubert Sumlin was one of the most influential guitarists of the rock era — and his death on Sunday (Nov. 4) has prompted a flurry of tributes from some of the many fans and musicians who were moved by Sumlin’s work.

Such was Sumlin’s legacy that his playing had a profound effect on rock legends like Keith Richards, Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, and Jimmy Page, who told Rolling Stone, “He always played the right thing at the right time.”

Ozzy Osbourne’s Speech Is Finally Intelligible, Thanks to a New iPhone App

As anyone who’s ever watched an episode of ‘The Osbournes’ is no doubt aware, Black Sabbath singer and solo star Ozzy Osbourne can be somewhat difficult to understand when he isn’t singing — but it isn’t just the sloppy diction of a legendary rock star that’s to blame: Ozzy hails from Birmingham, where the thick “Brummie accent” was recently voted the “least cool” in all of England.

But help is on the way, thanks to an intrepid software developer who’s bringing a little gadget called the iBrummie app to your iPhone.

Jimi Hendrix Bassist Billy Cox Has the ‘Old School Blue Blues’ on His New Album

The only surviving member of both the Jimi Hendrix Experience and the Band of Gypsys, Billy Cox is a genuine rock treasure — and although he turned 70 in October, the bassist is staying just as busy as ever.

Though his schedule of late has kept him on the road with the Experience Hendrix tribute band, Cox found time to resume his solo career with 2009′s ‘Last Gypsy Standing’ album, and he picked up right where he left off with his just-released latest CD, ‘Old School Blue Blues.’

Elvis Costello Doesn’t Want You to Buy His New Box Set

He might be willing to mug with Muppets, but when it comes to record companies ripping off his fans, Elvis Costello isn’t fooling around — and he recently proved it with a sarcasm-drenched post on his official site, prompted by the eyebrow-raising price tag on his new deluxe live box set, ‘The Return of the Spectacular Spinning Songbook.’

Saying “the price appears to be either a misprint or a satire,” Costello told fans that he’s “unable to recommend” the ‘Songbook’ box, and took the “unusual step” of recommending an alternative use for his fans’ money.

Motley Crue Bassist Nikki Sixx Is Working on Two More Books

When Motley Crue came crawling out of L.A.’s underbelly 30 years ago, few fans could have expected that any of its hard-rocking (and harder-living) members would ever become a published author. But bassist Nikki Sixx has always had a thing for defying expectations, and now that he’s already got two bestsellers under his belt (‘The Heroin Diaries’ and ‘This Is Gonna Hurt’), he’s making plans for his next books.

Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler Duet on ‘Forever Young’

Seeing Bob Dylan in concert is, as Forrest Gump might say, like a box of chocolates — you never know if you’re going to get the Bob who seems contemptuous of his audience and tired of his own songs, or the Dylan who adds to his inestimable legacy with another night of spine-tingling performances of classic songs.
