Daily Specials-FRIDAY

 

*A pot-smoking fan nearly caused Roger Daltrey to end his concert early. Daltrey was playing a show in Long Island with his band The Who on Wednesday night when he stopped performing due to an excessive amount of marijuana smoke. Daltrey is apparently allergic to marijuana smoke. Newsday reported that “the smoke’s impact was almost immediate on his voice, which went from crystal clear and potent for the opening ‘I Can’t Explain’ to something rougher and more limited during ‘I Can See for Miles’.” Daltrey scolded the smoking audience member, saying he’d end the show right away unless the fan got rid of his stash. Fellow The Who member Pete Townshend added a few words too, telling the fan to “eat it up your f****** arse.” The fan seemingly obliged and the band then continued the show, which was a part of their 50th anniversary tour.

 

*Jon Bon Jovi picked up an honorary degree from Rutgers University in his native New Jersey yesterday. The Bon Jovi frontman was presented with a Doctor of Letters degree from Rutgers University chancellor Phoebe A. Haddon during a Convocation and Graduate Commencement ceremony held at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden. The musician marked the prestigious occasion by debuting a new song, titled “Reunion,” for the 3,000-strong audience, and told students and their families he wrote the tune specifically for the Rutgers Class of 2015. Addressing the graduates, Bon Jovi said, “Life is a long, bumpy road, but that makes for an exciting ride. Choose a direction and if the road turns – turn! If there is a fork in the road – take it! It’s OK to map out your future… but do it in pencil.”

 

*A new DVD/double-CD set documenting a Gregg Allman solo concert that took place in January of last year in Macon, Georgia, will be released on August 7.  Gregg Allman Live: Back to Macon, GA features the founding Allman Brothers Band singer and his eight-piece backing group playing a 16-song set at historic Grand Opera House in Macon, the Allmans' adopted hometown.  Gregg performed Allman Brothers classics like "Statesboro Blues," "Melissa," "Midnight Rider," "Whipping Post" and "One Way Out," as well as his hit "I'm No Angel" and other selections from his solo catalog.  Allman's son Devon makes a guest appearance at the concert.  The video portion of the release includes interview segments mixed with the performances, as well as two bonus songs -- "Stormy Monday" and "Floating Bridge."  The set also contains a feature titled The Gregg Allman Band at the H&H. Gregg has lined up a variety of solo shows this year, including a late-summer run of joint concerts with The Doobie Brothers.

 

*Music fans don't generally associate Roger Waters with rootsy, acoustic sounds, but the former Pink Floyd star has signed on to headline the first day of the 2015 Newport Folk Festival.  The three-day event takes place Friday, July 24, through Sunday, July 26, at Fort Adams State Park in Newport Rhode, Island.

 

According to a message on Waters' official Facebook page, Roger will play an intimate [set] specifically crafted for" the festival.  A limited number of single-day tickets are still available for the fest's July 24 performances. To check out the full lineup and more details about the festival, visit NewportFolk.org. Waters' Newport Folk Festival show happens to coincide with the release of the deluxe reissue of his 1992 solo album, Amused to Death. 

 

*Even if you could've scored tickets, chances are you would've had to steal a seat from a celebrity at last night's "surprise" Rolling Stones concert at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles.  The Stones used the gig both as a warm-up for their upcoming Zip Code Tour, and to celebrate the June 9 reissue of their 1971 Sticky Fingers album, which includes the classic songs "Brown Sugar," "Wild Horses," and "Bitch."  The band played the album from start to finish, as well as several other hits. The celebs at the show included movies stars Jack Nicholson, Bruce Willis and Joe Pesci, rock musicians Steven Van Zandt, Dave Stewart, Leonard Cohen and Ben Harper, pop stars Harry Styles and Kesha, Jagger's daughter Georgia May Jagger, and many others.  The Stones are famous for playing surprise gigs at small venues in advance of their tours.

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.”
