AC/DC album up-date

Brian Johnson has revealed that AC/DC's next album is in the bag and that they considered calling it "Man Down". The frontman was in Northumbria... where he will be given an honorary doctorate. Before the ceremony he told TeamRock that the band's 15th album is completed. He adds that they toyed with the idea of calling it Man Down in reference to guitarist Malcolm Young's health problems which have forced him to take a break from AC/DC.

New Pink Floyd

A Pink Floyd album is on the way... 20 years after the band last released new material. Spokesman Doug Wright confirmed Monday that The Endless River will be released in October. It’s described as consisting of “mainly ambient and instrumental music” based on 1993-94 recording sessions for the group’s last album, The Division Bell. The Endless River features band members David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright, who died in 2008. Roger Waters, who left the group in 1985, is not involved.

Nikki Sixx prepares for Motley's farewell tour

“It’s been a fucking crazy rollercoaster ride deciding to end Motley Crue's career after over 3 decades and go out on top,” writes Sixx. “The preparation started over a year ago and is just ending with the final assembly of the biggest show we've ever had. I would say this show reflects our love of being extremist…” “The new song, ‘All Bad Things’, sounds great in the set alongside the classics and deep fan favorites,” he continued. “The vibe of the tour is really fucking positive…It’s a celebration and the band is tighter than we've been in years.” “It’s also an honor to have Alice Cooper as our support act on this run,” says the bassist. “I can't imagine a better set of songs from the beginning of Alice to the final bow of Crue. Opening night is tomorrow….Here we go…….”

Sting up-date

After selling over 100 million records & being worth $305 million, Sting has no intention of leaving his fortune to his children. Chatting with the Daily Mail, the Police frontman explained how it's "no picnic" being his child, giving a detailed explanation on his decision. 

 "With my children there is great wealth, success - a great shadow over them - so it's no picnic at all being my child. I discuss that with them; it's tough for them," the musician kicked off. "I told them there won’t be much money left because we are spending it! We have a lot of commitments. What comes in we spend, and there isn't much left," he continued. "I certainly don't want to leave them trust funds that are albatrosses 'round their necks. They have to work. All my kids know that and they rarely ask me for anything, which I really respect and appreciate. "Obviously, if they were in trouble I would help them, but I've never really had to do that," Sting pointed out. "They have this work ethic that makes them want to succeed on their own merit. People make assumptions, that they were born with a silver spoon in their mouth, but they have not been given a lot."

Befitting the disparate origins of the material, the album was recorded at various locations.

 "The band isn't over. Here's the thing. Motley is a business. And there's different parts of the business, merchandising, there's music and there's touring. We're just ceasing the touring part. But there's gonna be still music coming from the Crue for different types of things, and still merchandise and stuff like that. We're just saying that we won't tour anymore. That's really kind of it."

Guns N' Roses up-date

Axl Rose revealed in a new interview that the band has a lot of unreleased material recorded that he refers to the second half of 'Chinese Democracy' and they also have a remix album of the 'Chinese Democracy' tracks that is already done.

"We recorded a lot of things before 'Chinese' was out," Axl said. "We've worked more on some of those things and we've written a few new things. But basically, we have what I call kind of the second half of 'Chinese'. That's already recorded. "And then we have a remix album made of the songs from 'Chinese'. That's been done for a while, too. But after Vegas, we're going to start looking very seriously at what we're doing in that regard."

Metallica 2015

Kirk Hammett tells Guitar World magazine that the band will be buckling down in September to get to work on the follow-up to 2008's Death Magnetic.

 "We totally want to make an album," Hammett said. "But...we have families now. It's gonna be summertime soon and it's hard to work [then] because the kids are out of school." Hammett also laid out a timetable for the band to get to work on the new album, "September is gonna be the time when we buckle down," he said. "I know I told everyone it was gonna be last January…but that's just the way it goes!"

Def Leppard album up-date

Def Leppard regrouped in Ireland to write music for a new album... Joe Elliott is shared an update on the project. “Well, the new Def Leppard album is, at this moment in time, just a writing session that lasted the entire month of February,” 

Elliott tells Guitar International during an interview to promote “The Further Adventures Of...”, the new release by his side project Down N Outz. “We were hoping, at best, for three or four songs, maybe five. We ended up walking out of there with 12.” “They’re all in various stages of undress, if you like,” he continued. “There are three songs that I think we could actually release tomorrow. The other nine are anywhere from having “la-la melodies” to “we need to record it properly’. But, we’ve filled them up with songs that will be in the album. We’ll probably pick 12 from 16 or something like that. But we’ve got 12, and I’m going to be working on one of them this evening.”
