Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen were among the relatively small group of classic rockers nominated for 2012 Grammy Awards tonight (Nov. 30). None of them were mentioned on the hour-long televised nominations program, which consisted largely of pop and country music performances.
Bruce Springsteen has announced on his official website that he and the E Street Band will be embarking on a 2012 world tour in support of a brand new album, ending months of feverish speculation by his fans.
Black Sabbath‘s original lineup has officially announced that they will reunite in 2012, kicking off a world tour by headlining the Download Festival in England on June 10. That will be followed by more concerts and the fall release of the band’s first album together in 33 years.
More clips from Guns N’ Roses leader Axl Rose‘s upcoming interview on ‘That Metal Show’ have emerged. In one, the singer blames the band’s notoriously late concert start times on various daily mistakes, and also says their reputation for such behavior developed twenty years ago, partially as a result of problems with former guitarist Slash.
Kiss bassist Gene Simmons has revealed that producer Bob Ezrin is currently remixing the band’s legendary 1976 album ‘Destroyer’ for re-issue in “Deluxe Edition” form sometime in 2012, complete with unreleased tracks and re-instating the original label-rejected cover art as displayed above.
According to a reliable source, Van Halen have signed a record deal with Interscope Records, meaning their upcoming album will be the band’s first ever not to be released by their longtime label, Warner Brothers.
Kiss may come from America, but to hear bassist Gene Simmons tell it, their musical “heart and soul lies in England.” In London to serve as host of the Classic Rock Roll of Honour awards show recently, Simmons testified about the influence of English rock stars on his own music.
