Sammy Hagar's Longtime Drummer is Asking for Your Help
12/12/2013 10:23:00 AM
Sammy Hagar’s long-time friend and drummer is on a mission to force the FDA to make an experimental cancer treatment available for his wife. After two phases of patient testing, the FDA halted its use in part over concerns over how the research was conducted.
Eight months ago, Liza Cozad Lauser was diagnosed with a rare brain stem tumor that has impaired her eyesight, speech and movement. David found learned the news when he was touring with Hagar. When he got back home, the couple discovered an alternative drug called ANP, or antineoplaston therapy, described as synthetic chemicals that protect the body from disease. The drug had met with significant success, but in a case of terrible timing for the Lausers the drug had recently been pulled from use.
The couple posted a Change.org petition pleading for signatures to convince the FDA to allow the ANP therapy.
David told CBS Los ...

Heart and Others Jump Ship on SeaWorld Gig Over 'Blackfish' Documentary
12/10/2013 3:55:00 PM
Artists including Heart, Willie Nelson and Barenaked Ladies have canceled upcoming performances at SeaWorld in Florida after watching the CNN documentary Blackfish.
The film raises questions about the effects of keeping killer whales in captivity at the US attraction, in particular one whale which has been involved in the deaths of three people at SeaWorld in the last 30 years.
Additionally, Joan Jett has asked SeaWorld President Jim Atchison to stop using her song 'I Love Rock 'N' Roll' as the opening music for its 'Shamu Rocks' show. Peta reports that Jett sent an open letter to the head of the company, in which she states: "I'm among the millions who saw 'Blackfish' and am sickened that my music was blasted without my permission at sound-sensitive marine mammals."
SeaWorld spokesman Nick Gollattscheck said that the company respect the performers' decisions but criticised "a small group of misinformed individuals" who were ...

Bob Dylan's '65 Newport Strat Sells for Nearly a Million Bucks
12/6/2013 4:58:00 PM
Bob Dylan's Fender Stratocaster has sold for nearly one million dollars at a Christie's auction in New York this afternoon (Friday). The sale is a record for a guitar sold at auction, breaking the previous mark set by Eric Clapton's "Blackie" Fender, which fetched $959,500 in 2004.
Dylan's Strat made rock 'n roll history at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival when he abandoned his usual acoustic set and went electric. The story goes, he was pissed about some condescending remarks made about the Paul Butterfield Blues Band's electric set and hurriedly pulled together a band which included Mike Bloomfield on lead guitar and Al Kooper on organ. Both had played his just released, "Like A Rolling Stone." According to a festival roadie named Jonathan Taplin, Dylan's attitude was, "Well, f**k them if they think they can keep electricity out of here, I'll do it."
Dylan was met with boos and ...

Is Rod Stewart Being a Rock Tease, or Will He Go All The Way?
12/3/2013 10:49:00 AM
In 2008 Rod Stewart announced that the surviving Faces were discussing a possible reunion and that year he, Ron Wood, Ian McLagan and Kenney Jones got together for a rehearsal "just to check if they can remember the songs." They even launched a reunion website. A few months later, a spokesman for Rod Stewart denied there were any plans for a 2009 Faces reunion tour. Bummer. Rockus interruptus.
Now, Rod Stewart has stoked the reunion fires again in an interview with Boston classic rock station WZLX saying, “I think we have got much more of a chance of getting the Faces back together, in fact, Ronnie [Wood]‘s office is talking to my people, and we’re ear-marking 2015.”
As for that much-talked-about Rod Stewart/Jeff Beck reunion, it doesn't look promising. Stewart told the station, “Well, we seem to have lost contact with each other, sadly. Jeff’s manager was the ...

Photos From Rock & Roll Heaven: How They Would Look Today
11/26/2013 10:34:00 AM
What might some of the rock ‘n’ roll era’s greatest stars have achieved and what might they look like now, if they had not died before their time? Exploring these questions, Sachs Media Group partnered with photo company Phojoe to create this gallery of images.
The Sachs Media Group’s fascinating project didn’t end with speculation about what the musicians would look like today: They also consulted with musicologists Dr. Reebee Garofalo and Elijah Wald about the projects the musicians would have pursued. Lennon, for example,“Having retired from the music business and devoted himself to fatherhood, Lennon returned with a new maturity and would have been likely to continue his social activism with more focus. He paved the way for such musical activists as Bob Geldof and Bono, but given his talent and fame could have accomplished even greater things. Given what he had done already, it is hard to put ...
