Late News Update for Thursday September 29th, 2011

Hi all,
Well how frustrating can this site - Using Blogspot / - be?
I won't go into details, but the organisation 'behind' / Blogspot offer no customer support, just a web forum ... Then they've gone and changed all the settings / formatting in the whole set up, hence the site change ... That won't let me convert it back to how it was ...! What the ...?!!!
So, I hope you like it folks?! Thoughts?

Aside from that though folks, I'll keep bringing you as much news as I can, as many reviews as I can and ..., those interviews that yes, I STILL need to type up for you and get posted.
Here's hoping you have a great weekend folks, enjoy!
Cheers, Al


New York, NY (September 27, 2011) – Eagle Rock Entertainment are proud to announce the November 15 release of GOD BLESS OZZY OSBOURNE on DVD and Blu-ray.

Shot over the course of three years, GOD BLESS OZZY OSBOURNE is an unrivalled look into the mind of legendary rock icon Ozzy Osbourne. GOD BLESS OZZY OSBOURNE tells the life story of Ozzy, as seen through the eyes of his youngest child, Jack Osbourne, who worked alongside directors Mike Fleiss and Mike Piscitelli.

During the documentary, Ozzy recounts his troubled youth, his early career with Black Sabbath and the impact of fame and addictions on his first marriage. Viewers will also witness the second chapter of his life as a family man with Sharon, during which his addictions grew to a frightening level, as well as hear Ozzy and his children explain his attempts at staying clean, ultimately resulting in more than five years of sobriety.

Music fans will also see live performances from around the world, including rare behind the scenes clips of Ozzy on and off stage, in his dressing rooms pre-show, to his nights in a series of hotel rooms. Throughout GOD BLESS OZZY OSBOURNE, audiences are given an inside look into the life of a rock star, from the good times to the bad.

The DVD and Blu-Ray of GOD BLESS OZZY OSBOURNE also features additional previously unseen footage not seen in the theatrical release including new interviews, classic archive footage of Black Sabbath and OZZY OSBOURNE, along with a Q&A with OZZY and Jack Osbourne and behind the scenes footage from the Tribeca Film Festival.

The New York Times (4-15-11) has described it as a movie that “unblinkingly chronicles the chaotic life and times of rock’s most notorious cut-up, from his miserable working-class childhood…to his latter-day sobriety.”



Steven Tyler tell Rolling Stone: New Aerosmith Album Coming in March
(Aerosmith photo: Melissa Mahoney)

OK, this isn't an official press release from the band, as such, but this information comes through the Aerosmith fansite, Aero Force One, from what Steven Tyler has just shared with Rolling Stone, he tells them it's almost done ...

"Two months doing that and we’re almost there," Tyler said backstage at the iHeartRadio festival in Las Vegas this past weekend. "We’re gonna spend another month in L.A. Is there a release date in mind? March, hopefully." 

The frontman was in great spirits, and why not? He had just schooled an audience of 20,000 fans in rock history with the help of guitar god Jeff Beck. The two of them sounded so good together on songs like "You Really Got Me" and Sly and the Family Stone's "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)" it seemed a shame to waste that magic pairing on only four songs.
Could there be more collaborations with Beck in the making? "The rest is yet to reveal," Tyler said. "If I had my way, I’d say yes. We did 'Cry Me A River' and an Etta James song," he says. "[We] went to rehearsal to learn these four songs. Two we knew and we just wound up filling in the breaks with all kinds of crazy stuff."
Among those were also some Hendrix songs, according to bassist Tal Wilenfeld, who toured with Beck and sat in on thesuperstar jam session at I Heart Radio.
For his part, Beck had a great time being on stage with a frontman of Tyler's caliber. "Big gigs are not my thing for the sound purposes, but when you’ve got him there he carries the weight, 100 percent," he said. "I enjoyed the fact that everybody was digging what he was doing, so my job was a lot easier."
