The surviving Beastie Boys and the estate of late member Adam Yauch have filed a lawsuit against Monster Energy for the unauthorized use of their music in a new promotional campaign — and as the recently filed will of Yauch makes clear, the group will never agree to license its songs for ads.
When Jeff Angell and Barrett Martin decided to form a new band, they didn’t have to look very far for support. As two longtime members of the Seattle music scene, with time served in bands like Mad Season and Screaming Trees, they only needed to reach out to some old friends. Some very famous old friends.
When they announced their current ‘Theatre of the Escapists’ tour, Jane’s Addiction searched out people who could do “outlandish” things on stage — a request that guitarist Dave Navarro seems to have taken to heart, judging from a new video that shows him being pierced, rigged, and suspended by hooks.
By most accounts, security was pretty tight at this year’s Lollapalooza — and fortunately, even when things did get a little out of control, little or no landscaping was destroyed — but a few unsavory characters still managed to slip in. Just ask the 11-year-old girl who lost her beach ball and ended up with a sore stomach.
More than 40 years after George Harrison put together the all-star ‘Concert for Bangladesh,’ rock fans have become inured to the concept of stars coming together in order to combat societal ills — and these days, in order to really get attention, a charity festival has to have a pretty impressive lineup. Like, for instance, the 2012 Global Festival, scheduled for Sept. 29 in New York City’s Central Park.
As one of the most classic rock-friendly bands to spring from the grunge revolution, Pearl Jam have always been clearly indebted to Led Zeppelin — but that inspiration soared to painfully obvious new heights with ‘Given to Fly,’ a single from Pearl Jam’s 1998 album ‘Yield.’
Everybody loves an awesome album cover — but sometimes, if you’re the person on the cover, the notoriety can be more trouble than it’s worth. Just ask David Fox, who’s suing Placebo for using his face on the cover of their 1996 debut.
Canadian officials have begun sorting out the cause of the stage collapse that caused one fatality and injured several onlookers at a Radiohead concert over the weekend, with the band’s touring company one of several organizations under scrutiny.
Ticketholders hoping to see 3 Doors Down and ZZ Top in Atmore, Ala., on Saturday (June 9) were left disappointed — but probably safer — when the bands pulled out of the gig, citing concerns with “numerous safety issues concerning the structural integrity of the stage.”
Radiohead haven’t been shy about treating audiences to new material during their latest run of tour dates, and their stop in Cincinnati, Ohio on Tuesday (June 5) was no exception: the band unveiled another new song, ‘Full Stop,’ and a pair of fan-made recordings have already made their way to the web.
Red Hot Chili Peppers are nothing if not deliberate in the studio — they’ve taken at least three years between each album since ‘Blood Sugar Sex Magik,’ and their two most recent releases, ‘Stadium Arcadium’ and ‘I’m With You,’ were preceded by four- and five-year waits, respectively. Fans have probably been prepared to wait until 2016 for new material from the band — but the Peppers have some surprises in store.
