Daily Specials-TUESDAY 

 

*Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong will premiere his new musical in New York later this year. “These Paper Bullets!” is described as “a modish rip-off of Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ with a serious backbeat.” It’s about a British band trying to find love and cut an album in a week. It will run at New York’s Atlantic Theater beginning in November.

 

*The first gauntlet against the selfie stick has been thrown for festival season. Both Coachella and Lollapalooza have noted on their websites that the camera attachments, which allow users to take selfies with relative ease, will not be allowed at either festival this year. Among the many things festival goers are not allowed to bring to Coachella, added to the list this year is the notation “no selfie sticks/narcissists” – directly followed by “no stuffed animals.” Lollapalooza is a bit more specific, saying that “GoPro attachments like sticks, selfie sticks & monopods” will not be allowed. Coachella takes place April 10-12 and 17-19 this year in Indio, California, while Lollapalooza occurs July 31-Aug. 2 in Chicago. It’s unknown if Bonnaroo, arguably the third major festival in the U.S. along with the previous two, will do the same.

 

*Given Scott Weiland’s sometimes rocky history with Stone Temple Pilots and with Velvet Revolver, has he ever considered maybe he shouldn’t be in a band? Weiland says he’s actually a very good bandmate. He says he was with STP for 20 years and with Velvet Revolver for 7 – and that’s a pretty good history. Weiland  says when the creativity is just not happening anymore, it’s important to move on. His new project is Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts. Their debut album, “Blaster,” comes out today. Scott says his previous solo records have been kind of experimental and his fans did not care for that, but “Blaster” is more of a traditional rock album.

 

*Roger Daltrey says he used to try to sing like it’s the first time, but now he sings for what might be the last time. Daltrey says he thinks the current Who tour will be the last big tour they’ll do. Daltrey is 71 and Pete Townshend is 69. Daltrey says he wants to stop while they’re still at the top of their game. Daltrey says he can picture doing an acoustic set at a theater in New York with Townshend in the future, because then the audiences would come to them.

 

*The man who wrote and sang “Spirit in the Sky” has been badly hurt in a car accident. Authorities in Santa Rosa, California, say Norman Greenbaum was the passenger in a car involved in an accident with a motorcyclist, who was killed. The California Highway Patrol said the car turned left, crossing into the path of the motorcycle on Saturday. The car’s driver wasn’t injured. Greenbaum is in critical condition at a hospital.

 

*Jon Bon Jovi’s has finally found a buyer for his Manhattan penthouse. According to the New York Daily News, the apartment went into contract Monday, two years after the New Jersey rocker put it on the market, selling for $37.5 million. Jon bought the duplex for $24 million in 2007. He listed it in 2013 with an asking price of $42 million, then lowered the price several times when he failed to find any takers. According to the paper, model Heidi Klum expressed interest in the property last year, but the identity of the buyer has yet to be revealed.

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.”
