*It was bad enough that Mick Jagger was blamed for supporting teams in the World Cup that ended up losing. Now he’s being blamed for a loss simply for showing up to a game...now that's some serious superstition. Brazilian fans are pinning their frustrations over a 7-to-1 loss to Germany on Jagger because he watched Tuesday’s game from a VIP box. Jagger was wearing an England cap, not anything Brazilian. Some Brazilian fans have made cardboard cutouts of Jagger wearing the opposing team’s shirts, and other have nicknamed him “the jinx.” Jagger supports England but that team was knocked out by Uruguay. He said Italy would defeat Uruguay, but that was incorrect. He predicted Portugal would win it all.

 

*It's unusual these days for a celebrity to be as unrepentant about their success as GENE SIMMONS, the lead marketer for KISS.  And in a new interview, he really drives it home. He tells the "San Diego Union-Tribune", quote, "I have been part of the one percent for the past 30 years . . . It's fantastic!  The one percent pays 80 percent of all taxes.  Fifty percent of the population of the U.S. pays no taxes. "The one percent provides all the jobs for everybody else.  If the one percent didn't exist, there would be chaos and the American economy would drop dead.  Try being nice to rich people.  I don't remember the last poor person who gave me a job."

 

*Ringo Starr, who turned 74 last Monday, gets to bask in the love from his fellow music friends this Sunday, during the Ringo Starr: A Lifetime of Peace and Love tribute concert, airing on AXS TV. The concert actually took place last January at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, and also served to raise money for and awareness of the David Lynch Foundation, which seeks to promote peace and heal lives through meditation.  Performers including Ringo’s brother-in-law, Joe Walsh, as well as Ben Harper, Ben Folds, and R&B queen Bettye LaVette, saluted the former Beatle by performing his music, as accompanying Ringo as he ended the evening with a three-song set, including leading an all-star sing-along of “With a Little Help from My Friends.” Ringo Starr: A Lifetime of Peace and Love premieres Sunday at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT on AXS TV.

 

*Grateful Dead fans will receive a gift on September 9th with the release of the box set Spring 1990 (The Other One), documenting the band's historic 25th Anniversary tour. The 23-disc box set, the follow-up to the group's 2012 collection, Spring 1990, covers eight complete shows, all previously unreleased. Also included is the official debut of one of the most sought-after shows for Dead collectors: the March 29, 1990 show at Nassau Coliseum, where Grammy-winning saxophonist Branford Marsalis sat in with the group. The music is accompanied by a 144-page paperback book with essays by Nick Meriwether and Blair Jackson, a portfolio with three art prints by Jessica Dessner, replica ticket stubs and backstage passes for all eight shows. Between the two box sets, the entire spring tour of 1990 will have been released.

 

*Fans of Bachman-Turner Overdrive and the Guess Who who think the've heard everything about Randy Bachman ain't seen nothin' yet...he's recently released  Every Song Tells a Story, that gives a behind-the-scenes look into music history.  Recorded in April 2013, at Pantages Playhouse Theatre in Winnipeg, the 14-track CD/DVD set features Bachman in a rare and personal setting, weaving together his hits with storytelling, intricate detail and humor. In recalling the opening lines of "Takin' Care of Business," Bachman said the inspiration was simple when he asked for directions. "So I say, 'How do you get to Grand Central Station?'" he recalled. "He said, 'I take the 8:15 into the city.'" "You could see my life as a series of accidents that I've learned to sit back and see where they go," said the Canadian musician in a promotional video. Every Song Tells a Story will be released via the Independent Label Services Group on August 19th.

 

*This one's pretty close to home...While Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo are hitting fans with their best shots on their 35th Anniversary Summer tour, both musicians are exploring another passion: writing. Giraldo, 58, and Benatar, 61, are currently working on separate projects. He is writing an autobiography, and she's working on a novel about the second coming of Jesus, as well as a cookbook. "This is just another outlet for me,” Benatar told The Southern Illinoisan.
In the meantime, the duo has expanded their touring schedule to cover 125 dates a year. In the past, the working parents toured over the summer to accommodate school schedules, but now that their youngest has graduated high school, they are spreading their wings.

 

*Birthdays:

Leon Spinks (Former boxer)-61

Sela Ward (House, M.D.: Stacy Warner / CSI: NY: Jo Danville)-58

Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi)-55

Debbe Dunning (Home Improvement: Heidi Keppert)-48

Jeff Corwin (Wildlife expert)-47

 

 

 

Loverboy will return later this summer with the band’s first album of previously unreleased material in seven years.

The new LP, titled ‘Unfinished Business,’ has been a long time coming in more ways than one: The track listing brings together songs written throughout the band’s career — including one song, ‘Come Undone,’ first penned by guitarist Paul Dean some four decades ago. Befitting the disparate origins of the material, the album was recorded at various locations.

Dean contrasted the group’s current studio method with the painstaking way they cut 1985′s ‘Lovin’ Every Minute of It

Those fans will be well served with ‘A Passion Play: An Extended Performance,’ a 2-CD/2-DVD package that offers Steven Wilson stereo mixes of the original album as well as the Chateau d’Herouville sessions, plus 5.1 DTS and AC3 Dolby Digital surround sound and PCM 96/24 PCM stereo mixes of all the tracks and video footage from the era. The package is presented as a case-bound book, which includes an extensive article by Martin Webb on the preparation and recording of the album and the Château sessions that preceded it, in addition to an assortment of other essays and recollections. For listeners who prefer an analog experience, the stereo mix will also be available on 180-gram vinyl.

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.”
