*STEVEN TYLER recently spoke to some recovering drug abusers, and told them that addiction doesn't end when rehab is over . . . it's a lifelong fight.  He said, quote, "I'm also a drug addict and alcoholic and fighting it every day.  If you stop going to AA meetings, you're going to wind up using again.  They're all over the world.  I express my joy all because of AA.  "I'm a better drug addict and alcoholic than I am a musician. I got to keep it in check."  Steven began living a sober life in 1988, but he relapsed in 2004 after foot surgery put him on prescription meds.  He's coming up on five years sober now.

 

*Beatles alum Ringo Starr will star in a Sketchers ad campaign for their “Relaxed Fit” line starting in Spring 2015.

In addition to his legendary work with The Beatles, Starr has released 17 solo albums. He worked with John Varvatos to expand the line from its traditional athletic image to a musical one.

 

*If you've ever need motivation to get in shape, here's some from a fellow rocker...Bob Seger says he’s in “pretty good shape” for touring.

Seger is not saying whether he’ll do concerts beyond this tour, but he does say he’s taking it a tour at a time. His new album, “Ride Out,” came out last week.

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.”
