Tommy Lee Breaks Ribs Once Again

In a new press statement from Mötley Crüe, the band’s management revealed that Tommy Lee has once again broken his ribs, and has been strongly advised by his doctors not to perform at the upcoming European leg of the band’s “Staidum Tour” with Def Leppard, given his injuries from the previous year.

The statement also explains while Mick Mars retired from touring last October, he nevertheless maintains a hold on royalties and decision-making within the band and demands that Carmine Appice be recruited as a replacement.

The statement reads:

“It is with great regret that we have to inform you that Tommy Lee has once again fractured his ribs and that he will be unable to take part in Mötley Crüe’s upcoming European tour.

“Even though Tommy would love nothing more than to perform for European Crüeheads, he is strongly advised against it by the medical staff given his previous injures.

“The tour will still take place as scheduled, and the drumming legend Carmine Appice will be standing in for Tommy for the duration of the tour leg.

“We know that there has been some bad blood between Nikki Sixx and Carmine lately, but it was Mick Mars’ expressed wish that no other drummer is to be chosen for the role.

“Every decision in Mötley Crüe has to be made unanimously, and while he no longer tours with the band, Mick still enjoys all the rights of a full member.”

Moreover, the statement also adds that the first of the upcoming tour dates will also feature a jam-off between Nikki and Carmine, as per the drummer’s recent invitation:

“We are aware that Carmine Appice has invited Nikki to a jam-off after certain things were said.

“In order to prevent any bad blood from spoiling future shows, the two musicians will be throwing down with their instruments during the first European tour date, scheduled to take place on May 22nd at the Bramall Lane in Sheffield, UK.

“May the best rocker win!”

The statement also included a short quote from Carmine himself, who added:

“I am looking forward to playing with my friend Mick’s band, even though he won’t be present for the occasion. This ‘washed-up drummer’ still has a trick or three up his sleeve, as I’m sure Nikki Sixx will be finding out shortly.”

No specific comment was given on Nikki’s behalf.

Billy Joel had a surprise guest at the March 26th show during his residency at New York’s Madison Square Garden. ZZ Top‘s Billy Gibbons joined Joel on stage to perform the band’s classics “La Grange” and “Tush.”

Tush was sung by Joel band member Mike Delguidice; it was traditionally sung in ZZ Top by bassist Dusty Hill, who died in July 2021 and was replaced by his longtime roadie, Elwood Francis. Since then, ZZ Top has performed “Tush” live as a tribute to Hill while utilizing his pre-recorded vocals.

Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac Dead At 79

Christine McVie, who played with Fleetwood Mac and wrote some of their most famous songs, has died aged 79, her family has said.

The British singer-songwriter was behind hits including Little Lies, Everywhere, Don’t Stop, Say You Love Me and Songbird.

She died peacefully at a hospital in the company of her family, a statement said.

McVie left Fleetwood Mac after 28 years in 1998 but returned in 2014.

The family’s statement said “we would like everyone to keep Christine in their hearts and remember the life of an incredible human being, and revered musician who was loved universally”.

Born Christine Perfect, McVie married Fleetwood Mac bassist John McVie, and joined the group at the start of the 1970s.

A statement by the band said of McVie: “We were so lucky to have a life with her.

“Individually and together, we cherished Christine deeply and are thankful for the amazing memories we have. She will be so very missed.”

In a post on Instagram, Stevie Nicks wrote: “A few hours ago I was told that my best friend in the whole world since the first day of 1975, had passed away.

“I didn’t even know she was ill… until late Saturday night. I wanted to be in London, I wanted to get to London – but we were told to wait.

“So, since Saturday, one song has been swirling around my head, over and over and over. I thought I might possibly get to sing it to her, and so, I’m singing it to her now.

“I always knew I would need these words one day… It’s all I can do now.”

Rock ’n’ Roll Legend Jerry Lee Lewis Has Died

Rock ‘n Roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis who’s most known for hits like “Great Balls of Fire” and “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” has died at 87.

Jerry Lee Lewis died peacefully in his home in Desoto County, Mississippi. When reporters reached the family via phone, Farnum informed them that cause of the death was “natural causes.” His wife Judith was at his side. During his last hours Jerry told his wife he Isnt afraid to die and he will embrace the afterlife.

He was pioneer of rock and roll and rockabilly. He began recording in 1956 at Sun Records in Memphis, Tennessee. “Crazy Arms” sold 300,000 copies in the South, but it was Lewis’ 1957 smash “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” that catapulted him to international stardom. He then went on to have massive successes including “Great Balls of Fire,” “Breathless,” and “High School Confidential.”

His rock and roll career took a hit after he married Myra Gale Brown, his 13-year-old cousin once removed.

Following the controversy, his fame swiftly dwindled, and with a few exceptions, such as a version of Ray Charles’ “What’d I Say,” he had little chart success in the early 1960s. His live performances were becoming increasingly chaotic and energetic. Many writers and fans view his 1964 live CD Live at the Star Club, Hamburg as one of the craziest and finest live rock recordings ever.

“To Make Love Sweeter for You,” “There Must Be More to Love Than This,” “Would You Take Another Chance on Me,” and “Me and Bobby McGee” were also known as number hit singles.

Lewis released 40 studio albums during his career. The most recent being 2014’s Rock & Roll Time. “Mean Old Man,” his previous album, debuted in the US Top 30 in 2010 and featured duets with performers such as Mick Jagger, Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson, and Eric Clapton.

The UK’s Knim release their masterful debut of enthralling prog rock/metal – When A Star Falls

In the spring of this year Knim stepped from the shadows of their West Yorkshire home and presented their debut single to the world. A Prisoner On The Seas was an epic adventure – both musically and lyrically – and touched with magic. It opened a portal into another world with its entwining of progressive rock and grandiose metal and since its release all those who were captivated by its fresh, exciting sounds have been waiting eagerly for the continuation of the tale. Now the wait is nearly over, because on November 25th Knim will unveil their first full release – When A Star Falls.

Featuring a remastered version of ‘A Prisoner On The Seas’ and four new exquisitely crafted pieces of Knim’s unique sonic sorcery, When A Star Falls is a labyrinth to explore that harbours an array of treasures, waiting to be discovered. Opening with the many layers of ‘Elysium’, Knim then lead the listener on down the mist-shrouded ‘Pathway’ to the gargantuan storm of emotions that is ‘The Incongruity Of I’. The album explores themes of loss and isolation, yearning and betrayal, vivid memories of happiness beside which everyday existence fades to grey. Yet as the beautiful melancholy of the title track unfolds and slips into the odyssey of ‘A Prisoner On The Seas’ you can’t help but be uplifted by the sounds and visions that surround you. There is an intensity of emotion instilled within these songs that fires the imagination and surrounds you in rich and vivid hues of brilliant colour. There is more to appreciate within the world of When A Star Falls each time you visit its sprawling landscapes.

Accompanied by the artwork of Avenged Creations which seems to have been drawn directly from the heart of this special album and blessed with a rich, deep, organic sound quality thanks to the remarkable work of producer Ari Rannus, When A Star Falls will be waiting for you on November 25th. Join Knim on their voyage and you’ll never look back…

Coal Minors Daughter LORETTA LYNN Dies Peacefully in Her Sleep at Her Tennessee Ranch

Loretta Lynn, the Kentucky coal miner’s daughter whose frank songs about life and love as a woman in Appalachia pulled her out of poverty and made her a pillar of country music, has died. She was 90.

In a statement provided to The Associated Press, Lynn’s family said she died Tuesday at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.

“Our precious mom, Loretta Lynn, passed away peacefully this morning, October 4th, in her sleep at home in her beloved ranch in Hurricane Mills,” the family said in a statement. They asked for privacy as they grieve and said a memorial will be announced later.

LORETTA LYNN had a rough start in life and it didn’t get any easier in her adult life either. She was a very talented and strong woman who had to fight against all odds and held her own becoming one of the most famous country music icons. Shes listened to and celebrated world wide thanks to her 1980 Biopic, “Coal Minor’s Daughter”, starring Sissy Spacek and is one of the better cinematic bios, “Coal Miner’s Daughter” deserves praise because it is such a topnotch production. Sissy Spacek gives a terrific performance in the rags-to-riches, true-life story of country music legend Loretta Lynn. Lynn Personally Chose Sissy Spacek to Play Her in ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’

Loretta Lynn’s career as an American singer-songwriter spanned six decades in country music. Lynn released multiple gold albums. She had hits such as “You Ain’t Woman Enough”, “Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin'”, “One’s on the Way”, “Fist City”, and “Coal Miner’s Daughter”.

Lynn had four children before launching her career in the early 1960s, and her songs reflected her pride in her rural Kentucky background.

As a songwriter she was a defiantly tough woman, a contrast to the stereotypical image of most female country singers. The Country Music Hall of Famer wrote about love and sex, cheating husbands, divorce and birth control and met with trouble with radio programmers for her controversial material that even rock artists avoided.

When Metallica played Nashville for the first time in a decade back in January 2019, they added a country twist to their set with a cover of Loretta Lynn’s “You’re Looking at Country.” It turns out that not only was the 87-year-old “tickled” by the band’s rendition, but she was there to witness it in person.

Her family released a statement which read:

“Our precious mom, Loretta
Lynn, passed away
peacefully this morning,
October 4th, in her sleep at
home at her beloved ranch in
Hurricane Mills.” The family
of Loretta Lynn.
