*The giant inflatable pig created for the cover photo of Pink Floyd’s 1977 album “Animals” can be yours for the right price. The pig is part of a 30-year collection of work being sold off by Air Artists, the firm responsible for creating it and a host of other rock memorabilia – including pieces used by the Rolling Stones, Iron Maiden and AC/DC. “I’m sad to see them go but they very rarely see the light of day and so I would be quite happy for someone else to take them for a walk,” explained artist Rob Harries. “The clear-out has been quite cathartic and brought back a lot of memories, but I do feel I’ve been there and done that now, and it’s time to move on.” Floyd fans will remember the fuss created by the pig during its initial flight, which went awry when it broke free from its moorings and ended up grounding flights out of Heathrow before finally landing in a farmer’s field and, in his words, “scaring my cows to death.”

 

*Former Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora is executive producing a series for HBO about an up-and-coming rock band. The show will focus on “the toil, trials and tribulations” the group must go through while trying to achieve stardom, Sambora said. Sambora said HBO initially contacted him to work on music for one of its projects. He then told network reps about a script he wrote three years prior and they wound up liking his concept better than the one they were already working on. The show’s tales are fiction, but were inspired by some of Sambora’s own experiences.

 

*The Foo Fighters have added a special stop at San Francisco’s Pier 70 between stops on its North American tour. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals. The sixth annual “Concert for UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals” also features a performance from Gary Clark Jr. Presented by Salesforce Foundation in conjunction with the annual Dreamforce Gala in San Francisco, the benefit takes place September17th. The event begins with a cocktail reception at 7 p.m., followed by the concert at 8 p.m. The evening wraps up with an exclusive after-party hosted by “two internationally-recognized artists.”

 

*Donald Trump’s campaign has been turning heads across the political spectrum. One person who’s got a unique perspective is Dee Snider of Twisted Sister, who’s classic rebellious anthem “We’re Not Gonna Take It” has been a staple of Trump rallies. While most musicians demand that Republican candidates not use their music, Snider is fine with it. He appeared on Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” and considers him a friend. “Donald Trump is a good friend and a great guy, and I support him turning the political system on its head,” he told TMZ, “The song ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ is a song about rebellion, and there’s nothing more rebellious than what Donald Trump is doing right now.” But Snider was more ambiguous on whether he believed Trump would be a good commander-in-chief: “Should he be president? Oh, I don’t know about that. He’s a little too much of a narcissist. But he’s stirring the pot, that’s one thing he’s definitely doing, he’s shaking it up. I think that’s why he’s getting ratings he’s getting, people are just sick of the status quo.” Snider is also okay with politicians of different stripes using the song. “Bernie Sanders can use it as well; he’s turning things upside down, too,” he explains.

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.”
