We're starting to get rumblings of what to expect from Jimmy Page this year. He says he does have plans to hit the road for some live dates and we can expect some new music from him as well. He says, "it's taken a long time to get to this point, but I want to do it properly. And, there will be surprises -- that's what I've done all the way through my career, really.... the best way for me to think about it is pacing towards a really exciting show, where you've still got a chance to improvise and come up with new things every night." Talking about the new music he's working on, he says "it has a charm of it's own and an excitement to it." When the time comes for Jimmy to audition lead singers - here's a couple he should consider......
Stone Temple Pilots are in the market for a new lead singer. Last Fall they parted ways with Chester Bennington (Linkin Park) and had just started looking for another vocalist right before the death of Scott Weiland last December. They wrote on the band website: "We've heard from many talendted people, but want to make this an opportunity for many more, so we've set up a way for you to do just that. If you think you have what it takes to front this band, record with this band, and tour with this band, we would dig hearing from you." Here's how you can do that. They go on to say that they are not looking to 'replace' Scott, "the intent is for Stone Temple Pilots to continue on, to evolve, and to do what we do -- make music!" Guitarist Dean DeLeo says the band will be ready to get back to work on new material as soon as a new singer is appointed. I can think of a couple local lead singers that would be perfect for the job - spread the word! Also, be sure to vote for your local hometown and maybe win a big Bay broadcast in your corner of the state!
Every town in every State has something to brag about and Maryland is no exception. If you want us to shout it out to the world to let everyone know how awesome your town is, just give us a few reasons why and maybe we'll show up with a microphone and see if it's true. One of the things I love about living in Finksburg (aside from it's name!) is that I've got the best of both worlds - solitude, yet just 6 miles from the busy town of Reisterstown. Tell us what makes YOUR hometown great!
Last night the Stones kicked off the South American leg of their ongoing tour in Santiago Chile. Before the show, their website solicited suggestions for rarities they haven't done live in a long time. The one below is the tune that got the most votes. They played it 6th song into the set and it was only the 11th time they've done it live in their concert history (last time being the tour in 1998). Here's the complete setlist from their 1st live show this year!
Be sure to listen for blocks all weekend long (including more rarities from The Stones) with "The Big Game Block Party Weekend"
How cute is this! Bruce Springsteen did a little dancing (in the dark) with an 89 year old Grandmother at his show in Toronto last night. Evelyn had a birthday she'll never forget! Don't you forget to listen all day tomorrow for your chance to win tickets for Bruce in Baltimore, before they go on sale!!
Here's another Classic Rocker showing up in a Superbowl ad this weekend. Forget anout the M&M's backstage - Steven's all about the Skittles! Guess how much it cost for 30 seconds of TV air time on Superbowl Sunday this year??
