Rock News for Monday 4th January, 2010

PHILIP PARRIS LYNOTT - August 20th, 1949 - January 4th, 1986. Gone but never forgotten.

No update right now, but just wanted to pay tribute to the guy who in my opinion was the greatest frontman to the best live rock band I have ever seen live, Thin Lizzy!
RIP Phillip Lynott, you may be gone but you are never forgotten.
PHILIP PARRIS LYNOTT - August 20th, 1949 - January 4th, 1986.

Glenn Hughes, ready to rock again?

Rumours are rife about former Trapeze, Deep Purple man Glenn Hughes getting back to his rock roots again.
Earlier today, posted a notice along these lines, making me believe Mr. McNiece there knows something! :)

He's posted on his website that veteran producer Kevin Shirley has remastered Deep Purple's "Come Taste The Band" album and the website - - goes on to point people to follow these kind of daily comments on Twitter at
"On my way to Malibu, where Kevin Shirley is remixing Come Taste The Band... 010 is gonna start off with a BANG!!! GH"
"Was with Kevin Shirley 2day in Malibu...Mixed Dealer and I need Love ...yesterday YKOM and Gettin' Tighter, we have been sendin' David (Coverdale) Mixes"
"Happy New Year to you all...its all startin' off in the Studio, recording this weekend with our new Band...My Music will define me, love,GH"
"I'm on my way to the is the first day of our new Band..wish us well..its gonna Rock.. And you're gonna get it!! GH"
"And God said...Its Time to Rock 'n Roll....GH"
"The new Band has now runnin' is a spectacle...with the most amazin' orgasm for the mind!!!! GH"
"We are all stayin' in Malibu...Gab is @ breakfast with me @ the Studio @ 10.30am...Starbucks in Hands...GH"
"The new Band is a MINDBLOWER... I Repeat A MINDBLOWER.... GH"
"Off to the Studio with the Band stoppin' @ Starbucks as we are all Coffee Freaks,recorded the Basic tracks to 3 songs yest + four more 2day"

Some indications are that he's moved on with blues rocker Joe Bonamassa after some December gigs late last year. Another name linked is possibly John Sykes, but again at this time these are just rumours. Drummer's names mentioned have been Tommy Aldridge, Chad Smith or Joe Bonamassa's drummer Bogie Bowles. Again, nothing confirmed ..., yet!
It all sounds very promising, I hope we get something soon.

Jimmy Page to tour ..., so says Pollstar

Pollstar today posted this news headline that Led Zeppelin guitar legend Jimmy Page has announced plans to tour in 2010, including an appearance at the inaugural Show of Peace concert on April 17 that will be globally televised from the Bird's Nest Stadium in Beijing.

They then go on to add, that it is unclear what or who the Jimmy Page tour would include, but he apparently told Sky News in the UK that he has new material and intends to take it to the stage in 2010.

One small detail is that there are no other dates besides the China show published ...
