Steven Tyler Book


Steven Tyler Writes A Book

by Paul Cashmere - April 30 2009

Steven Tyler has compiled his life story in the book `Does The Noise In My Head Bother You`.

Tyler has documented his early days growing up in the Bronx, his early music career and influences, three decades of Aerosmith and his relationship with his four children, including actresses Liv and Mia Tyler.

Tyler decided to put in print all the sex, drugs and rock and roll from his life.

“This is not just my take, this is the unbridled truth, the in-your-face, up-close and prodigious tale of Steven Tyler straight from the horse’s lips,” he said in a statement.

Tyler will launch the book at BookExpo America in Norwalk, Connecticut on May 28.

(This will be a nice juicy book to own :)

Free Aerosmith Concert in Hawaii

Aerosmith to settle lawsuit with Maui performance

AP, Apr 27, 2009 6:00 am PDT

Free tickets to see Aerosmith in Hawaii? Dream on, unless you happen to be one of 8,300 people left in the cold when the band canceled a sold-out concert in 2007.Aerosmith has agreed to perform on Maui to settle a class-action lawsuit filed by fans who alleged the band pulled out of the show in favor of a larger concert in Chicago and a more lucrative private performance for Toyota dealers on Oahu.
The suit claimed the cancellation cost Maui ticket buyers between $500,000 and $3 million in travel costs, handling fees and other expenses.

"Everyone who bought a ticket to the original concert will receive a free ticket, and all out-of-pocket expenses will be reimbursed regardless of the amount," said Brandee Faria, an attorney representing the would-be concertgoers.The date for the new Maui concert has not been set, but Faria said it will likely be in September or October, after Aerosmith wraps up its North America tour.

Aerosmith attorney Jay Handlin said the band was glad to reach the settlement.
"The band is about the music," Handlin said. "So they are glad to be able to resolve this in a way that really focuses on connecting or reconnecting the people of Hawaii with the band and its music."

KoRn Crafting "Heavy Groove Riffs"

KoRn Crafting "Heavy Groove Riffs"

KoRn singer Jonathan Davis, bassist Fieldy, guitarist Munky and drummer Ray Luzier have been working together in Fieldy's basement studio in Laguna Hills, CA coming up with a bunch of material for a new record, as well as an album of cover songs. The group is working with original KoRn producer Ross Robinson, which is bringing them back to their roots. Fieldy told that working with Robinson "really brings out old school Korn. It's heavy riffs and we're trying to strip it down raw and get those heavy groove riffs that make you want to hop around or jump around or just go crazy. We're going towards that."

Fieldy added that "there's nothing lyrically put down yet," but Davis may bring a portable studio on the road when KoRn kicks off its tour with Avenged Sevenfold on Saturday in Tucson, so that he can begin laying down ideas. The album could be out by the end of the year.

Meanwhile, the band has also been practicing a diverse array of cover songs such as Nine Inch Nails' "Head Like A Hole," Faith No More's "We Care a Lot" and the Psychedelic Furs' "Love My Way." They will be part of the separate covers album, but it is uncertain when that project will be ready for release. For now, the band is just looking forward to getting back on the road.

"We're just going to take a little break now (from recording) and come back fresh," Fieldy told Billboard. "We've been home for over a year now. We really want to get out on stage. We put together a set of a lot of KoRn classic songs; I'm excited to play some of these songs we haven't played in years."

Madonna Falls of Horse

Madonna Injured After Falling From Horse

by Paul Cashmere - April 19 2009

Paparazzi are to blame for Madonna falling from a horse today.

The material girl was horse-riding in the Hamptons when paparazzi jumped from the bushes and scared the horse.

She has received minor injuries and bruises but was taken to nearby Southhampton hospital for treatment.

Madonna and toy-boyfriend Jesus Luz were staying at the home of friend, celebrity photographer Steven Klein. The accident occurred on Klein’s property. Luz watched as she fell to the ground.

In 2005, Madonna broke three ribs, her hand and collarbone when she slipped off her saddle in another incident.

(These paparazzi really need to cut the crap out, she could have been seriously hurt here!!)

Kiss Tour Fans Decide Route!

For their upcoming tour of North America, KISS is letting their fans determine exactly where they rock and roll all night and party every day. Starting this afternoon at, fans in the U.S. and Canada can vote to have their town included in the tour itinerary.

The band says that "No matter where the fans say--from stadiums to cornfields--if there are enough votes, KISS will be there! And in order to keep the competition fair for smaller cities, final site selection will weigh population size versus total votes."

"KISS has never followed the rules--we have always broken them. KISS has never listened to critics-we have always listened only to the fans," said Gene Simmons. "It's time to give back to the fans with bigger shows and longer set lists. And for the first time anywhere, we want our fans to tell us where they want us, and when."

Added Paul Stanley, "No band has ever given their fans the power to decide what cities they play, and no fans deserve it more than ours. We're leaving the next U.S. and Canadian tour up to the Army. When they stand up, they will be counted!"

KISS is currently on a stadium tour of South America.


(That is such a cool idea! Glad that they're given their fans the chance at deciding where the band will play. I think more bands should listen to what their loyal fans want from them!)

Page Inducts Beck @ Rock Hall

Here is a vid just audio portion of Jimmy Page inducting Jeff Beck into the Rock Hall. Real nice speech by Jimmy :)

Beck n Page Rock Hall Rock Out!

Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page Rock Out!

What a dynamic pair Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck were at the Rock Hall. You can't go wrong with two guitar Gods such as them. Doing that Jeff's Bolero with Immigrant Song was amazing. Jeff still shows he can really play a mean guitar and Jimmy sort of took a back seat because it was in fact Jeff's night. Jimmy is all class and Jeff is so cool. Was great seeing them together and having so much fun as good ole mates from way back in the Yardbird days. If you didn't get a chance to see the clips on you tube yet go check em out!
