Heavy metal-loving sports fans in Nashville, Tenn. will be able to spot a fellow headbanger on the ice pretty easily during the NHL’s next season. That’s because Chris Mason, who played with the city’s Predators franchise throughout much of the ’00s, is returning to the team… and bringing along Iron Maiden‘s beloved mascot Eddie.
Steven Tyler has announced that he will not return for a third season as a judge on ‘American Idol.’ Instead of spending another year hosting a bland televised singing competition, the Aerosmith frontman will focus on what we all know he was put on this earth to do.
The film version of ‘Rock of Ages‘ merits a lengthy and highly qualified recommendation: Can you stand the Broadway musical format at all? Can you stay extremely open-minded as some of your favorite ’80s rock songs are re-recorded by actors, then endure a couple of questionable lead role casting choices and an openly cheesy atmosphere?
The biggest classic rock stories of the week find us saying sad goodbyes to two highly influential (and very different) guitar players, wishing Foreigner keyboardist Michael Bluestien all the best in his recently revealed cancer battle, and giggle as Gene Simmons’s famous collection of nudie pictures goes up in flames on his terribly corny TV show.
The June 2012 New Music Releases schedule features a wide range of classic rock artists, including new albums from Neil Young + Crazy Horse, Rush and most shockingly, the Beach Boys — complete with returning resident musical genius Brian Wilson!
