It’s officially announced…Bruce Springsteen’s new album will be called WRECKING BALL and will be released on March 06…it’s his SEVENTEENTH studio album. Still no word on a North American tour, but I suppose first things first…get the album deets out, blow everybody away with the first single which is called “We Take Care of Our Own”, and THEN release those dates.
It’s never to late to admit that you maybe made a mistake…even if it was 25+ years ago. Roger Waters spoke candidly about Pink Floyd during a recent interview. When asked about parting ways with David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and the late Rick Wright in the mid-’80s, he explained: “It was character forming.” When Waters was presssed and asked if the band was wrong to regroup and perform Floyd material on the road without him, Waters — who viciously battled Gilmour and Mason in court over the group’s name — admitted: “No I don’t think so. I think I was wrong to think they were wrong.” A reconciliation of sorts? Roger Waters will be in Winnipeg on May 31 and June 01…the first show is sold out, but the second one is still good to go.
Is Vince Neil REALLY thinking of hanging up his Motley Crue hat? He was interviewed the other day and was asked about the future of the band. Vince said, “Eventually it’s time to call it quits. I’ve been sitting on my boat in the Bahamas for the last month and just thinking about the future. There’s a lot of really cool things coming up in my mind, and it might be the time to just kind of bow out. But I haven’t made a decision a hundred percent yet. It’s just a thought that’s been going through my head.” This after they just decided to do a residency at the Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas February 03 – 19.
And finally, out in select stores is the brand new AC/DC pinball machine!!! This sounds SO wikkid cool…there’s a ball shooting CANNON in the game, a TNT detonator, and something called “the Devil’s jukebox”, all while one of twelve AC/DC tracks belt out of thew speakers. It sounds like it rules…you can get more info at sternpinball.com…but expect the game to set you back, oh, almost $6000.
