Daily Specials-Wednesday

 

*Neil Young has filed for divorce from wife and Bridge School founder Pegi Young after more than 36 years of marriage. His petition for dissolution of marriage not involving a minor child was entered July 29th in Superior Court of San Mateo County, California. Pegi Young has been more than just Neil Young’s wife over the years. She served as Young’s background singer beginning in the ‘90s and co-founded the Bridge School in 1986, inspired when their son, Ben, had trouble finding a school after being born with cerebral palsy. The husband and wife team organize a yearly benefit for the school in Mountain View, California, where they last performed together in 2013. Pegi Young was scheduled to appear at Farm Aid next month, but her name was recently taken off the lineup at the festival’s website.

 

*Aerosmith recently joined the rock ranks that have taken on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge...they did it during a show in Texas on Monday night. The band was challenged by Mötley Crüe, and, for their part, passed on the challenge to Quentin Tarantino, Fleetwood Mac, Cheap Trick, the Dalai Lama, and the road crews for Aerosmith and Slash. Joe Perry announced before getting soaked that the band would donate proceeds from each ticket sale toward ALS research. All five band members then got drenched on stage. 

 

*This fall, Fleetwood Mac will launch their first tour in nearly twenty years with Christine McVie, the voice behind such classics as "Don't Stop," "You Make Lovin' Fun" and "Over My Head."  The 71-year-old rock legend says she's been working out with a personal trainer so she'll be able to spend long hours onstage without collapsing. Speaking to ELLE magazine, Christine says, referring to her keyboard playing style, "The aim is to be fit enough to stand up for two and a half hours balancing on one foot, which is what I do."

 

*If you're a Paul McCartney fan, you'll have to wait a little longer to get your hands on the recently announced reissues of the classic Wings albums Venus and Mars and Wings at the Speed of Sound.  The U.S. release date for the latest installments of the Paul McCartney Archive Collection has been pushed back from September 23 to November 4. A message on McCartney's official website blames "production issues" for the delay.  Sir Paul is personally overseeing all aspects of the packages. he three-disc versions of Venus and Mars and At the Speed of Sound both will feature a bonus CD with demo recordings and previously unreleased tracks, as well as a DVD containing footage filmed around the time of each album's release, some of which hasn't been seen before.  The Deluxe Editions' packaging will include a hardbound book offering rare photos, new interviews with McCartney, in-depth information about the albums and a variety of archival material.

 

*Bob Dylan has confirmed he'll be bringing his "Never Ending Tour" back to North America for a fall leg.  The 31-date trek will get underway with a three-show engagement, October 17-19, at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, and also will include multiple-night stands in Los Angeles; Oakland, California; Minneapolis; Chicago; Toronto; Philadelphia; and New York City. The tour will wrap up with four concerts at New York's Beacon Theatre that are scheduled for November 28 and 29, and December 1 and 2.  Tickets for most of Dylan's new stateside shows will go on September 5. Dylan also recently announced that he'll release a deluxe six-disc set on November 4 featuring recordings from his historic 1967 "Basement Tapes" sessions with The Band as the 11th volume of the folk-rock great's Bootleg Series.  Two-CD and three-LP versions of the collection also will be available the same day. 

 

*Chuck Berry was honored Tuesday as the winner of the 2014 Polar Music Prize, although the 87-year-old rock 'n' roll pioneer could not attend the ceremony because of illness.  Veteran British rocker Dave Edmunds was on hand to accept the honor from Sweden's King Carl XVI at the event, which took place at Stockholm's Concert Hall. While at the podium, Edmunds read a speech Berry wrote that said, "Unfortunately I am unable to travel, but my heart is in Sweden.  I want to thank the King and the Royal Family for awarding me the Polar Prize.  I understand what a great honor it is to be a recipient.  I am sorry that I am unable to travel and receive this personally." In addition, Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards sent a video homage in which he discussed how much Berry influenced and inspired him.

 

*On this day in History: 1990 - Guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan was killed when his helicopter crashed in a hill in East Troy, Wisconsin.  He was 35.  Vaughan was on his way back from a concert with Eric Clapton and Robert Cray.  Three members of Clapton’s crew were also killed in the accident.

*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

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.”
