Tina Turner Passed Away

Wednesday, May 24th, Tina Turner passed away after a lengthy battle with various illnesses. Her team took to Facebook to announce the tragic loss, see the post below.




David Coverdale has once again ruled out penning an autobiography. In a new interview, he said: “It would be a spilling of the beans, which I’m not interested in hurting anybody, and particularly my family.” He did indicate, however, that he is working with his video people on “another concept” which “could be significantly more interesting”.

Tom Petty's Clothes to be Auctioned

Tom Petty's wardrobe hit the auction block on Friday and bids will be taken until June 18. The highlight of the lot, which contains 45 pieces of Petty’s prized possessions, is the black-and-white striped satin jacket he wore for the UK cover of his 1978 hit ‘Listen to Her Heart’. 



Ringo Starr revealed why he refused to write a memoir, even though he’s been “offered lots of money” to do so. He said the idea bores him because he’d be expected to start the story in 1962 when he joined the group, and he’d need to write “3 volumes before I get to that year….I don’t want to do Ringo the drummer, because we’re all a bit more than that.”



Doobie Brother's singer-guitarist Tom Johnston has been forced out of the upcoming leg of their 50th-anniversary tour due to a back injury. He will undergo surgery, but the tour will proceed with Pat Simmons, Michael McDonald and John McFee, beginning tomorrow in Hollywood FL. Johnston is expected to return to the stage after he recovers.

Eric Clapton has released a live video of ‘Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door (Rock)’, to preview his new release “The Definitive 24 Nights”. It’s a deluxe collection based on 1991’s compilation of live recordings at London’s Royal Albert Hall, out June 23.
