Sweden Rock Festival 2011 will celebrate 20 years
Wow! Who'd have thought that event has been going 20 years and the event just seems to go from strength to strength. Every year everyone in the rock world hears about it and there have been some great DVD releases by bands that have played there too.
I think for next year the organizers should take it upon themselves to release the event, worldwide on CD and DVD!
A Sweden Rock Festival Anniversary event!
Anyway, getting off track here, but as early as it is already for the event happening in June next year, so far already Ozzy, Jason and the Scorchers (Remember them?!) and Saxon are among the names confirmed.
Both Jason and the Scorchers and Saxon will be celebrating anniversaries next year too!
Jason and the Scorchers will have been going for 30 years come 2011 and Saxon will be celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the 'Denim and Leather' album.
According to Blabbermouth.net, Saxon will be playing 'Denim and Leather' in it's entirety next year AND will be bringing 'the eagle' to the event! Ahh, I remember the old eagle well on many of the early Saxon tours playing at the old Portsmouth Guildhall!

The Cars reformed, new music, first sample
The reunited Cars line up, including this time around Ric Ocasek, have recently got things together, after the other guys in the band played shows as 'The New Cars' featuring Todd Rungren and there is some new music to be heard that the band have posted through their Facebook page.
The new song is called, 'Blue Tip' and you can sample it here:
Don't get too excited though as they are only sharing just over a minute of the track!
