  • Led Zeppelin is over and out as far as any new recording or performances, but Jimmy Page still plans on several more releases of old original material from his former band.  Speaking with Planet Rock, the guitarist said he's got another multiple track release in the near term and several more release over the course of the next ten years.  While he doesn't have any expectations he'll play or record with Robert Plant or John Paul Jones again, the three will collaborate on the 50th anniversary book based on the band that is in the works, which he says sets it apart.  Speaking of other books documenting bands, Page said, 'There's about ten that I know of coming out, wich is pretty ridiculous!  It will be really good to have an authoritative book, where the band are actually contributing to it rather than being rippedd off.'

  • Parkinsons Disease has  forced Judas Priest guitarist Glenn Tipton to step aside from the group.  He was first diagnosed with early onset of the disease about a decade ago, but it has advanced to the point that it has compromised his ability to perform.  The group issued a statement that read in part, "Right now Glenn is able to play and perform some of the Priest songs that are less challenging but due to the nature of Parkinsons progression he wants to let you all know that he won't be touring as such."  Andy Sneap will fill his role in the band for the upcoming tour, but Tipton added to the group's announcement, "I don't rule out the chance to go on stage as and when I feel able to blast out some Priest! So at some point in the not too distant future I'm really looking forward to seeing all of our wonderful Metal maniacs once again."

    The group opnes it's North American tour on March 15 in Youngstown, Ohio.

  • Former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler has announced that he will perform Appetite For Destrution in its entirety during his upcoming tour with his own group, Adler's Appetite.  His efforts to get the early linup of GNR reinstated has been largely ignored by the group.  Adler was able to join Axl Rose, Slash and Duff MvKagan on a few tour stops in 2016, but there appears to be no plans involving the former members on the horizon.

  • John Mellencamp's on-off affair with actress Meg Ryan is on again.  Just a few months vowing that he would never leave Indiana to live in New York or LA, the singer reportedly plunked down $2.3 million for a place in lower Manhattan's Soho section.  That will make his trip uptown to the Marriott Marquis Hotel on June 14th for the Songwriters Hall Of Fame Awards Dinner conveniently short.  Mellencamp will be inducted with Alan Jackson, Kool & the Gang, Jermaine Dupri, BIll Anderson, Allee Willis and Steve Dorff.
