The All-Request Classic Rock Cafe

Daily Specials-Friday

 

 

*It's no secret that Bob Seger likes that old time rock 'n' roll, but did you know that he's also a big fan of Halloween?  The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer says that he and his family enjoy getting together to celebrate the holiday with all the little trick-or-treaters who come to their house for candy. "My wife loves Halloween, and her mother comes over and her sister and [her] kid and our kids, and we just sit at the front door and watch all the great kid costumes and the parents from the neighborhood," says the Michigan rocker.  "It's a fun time." But if you're looking for the Classic Rocker to show up with a costume...you might be disappointed, "I'm the only one [in my family]," he points out.  "I reserve the right, being the paterfamilias or whatever you want touch as a Halloween party, he generally won't put a lot of effort or creativity into his outfit. call it." Seger adds that if there's a situation where he feels he has to wear a costume, "I'll dress up in something I'll really feel good in, like my motorcycle stuff," he explains, laughing.  "I'll say, 'I'm a motorcycle guy.'  That's what I go as." 

 

*Paul Simon will talk you through the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame exhibit about him. It’s the first time the Rock Hall has had a first-person narrative for an exhibit. “Paul Simon: Words and Music” will include Simon’s first acoustic guitar, the original recording contract for Simon and Garfunkel, the handwritten lyrics for the song “The Boxer,” and a letter Simon wrote from summer camp to Art Garfunkel when they were teens. The exhibit is open now.

 

*Seems like there's been a lot of talk about band reunions lately...Sammy Hagar parted ways with Van Halen in a blaze about a decade ago, but the Red Rocker says that under the right circumstances he would be willing to reunite with his old band mates. "I would play with anybody that loves me and that I love.  That would include Van Halen, but the love's not there right now," Hagar tells Rolling Stone.  "I do love those guys, [although we] really bumped heads on the last tour." Hagar says Van Halen's 2004 reunion tour "was just a mess and I would never go into a mess like that again."  He adds that the trek "was just about the most dysfunctional thing I've ever done in my adult life, times 10," while suggesting that the bulk of the blame rested on guitarist Eddie Van Halen shoulders.

 

*Finally some good news for the Allman Brothers...the family of “Midnight Rider” camera assistant Sarah Jones has dismissed the lawsuit against Gregg Allman, executive producer Michael Lehman and Open Road Films. The three of them were previously named as defendants in a wrongful death suit stemming from a train accident that killed Jones. The case, however, continues against other previously-named parties including director Randall Miller, producer Jody Savin, executive producer Jay Sedrish and first assistant director Hillary Schwartz. They face charges of involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespass, but each has pleaded not guilty. A trial is set for March.

 

*It's not too often that a Classic Rocker and Rap Artist join forces... but the famous Rocker Carlos Santana will team up with popular rapper Pitbull for a special performance at the 2014 Latin Grammy Awards ceremony, which will take place on November 20 at the MGM Grand Garden Area in Las Vegas.  The event will be broadcast live on the Univision Network at 7 p.m. CT. Pitbull was one of the guest artists featured on the guitar legend's latest album, Corazon, appearing on a track titled "Oye 2014," an updated version of Santana's classic cover of Tito Puente's "Oye Como Va."  Santana and Pitbull's performance on the ceremony will help the Latin Grammys mark its 15th anniversary.

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.”
