Broadway To Hell?
Sunday, 13 July 2008

According to the weekly UK-based celebrity and pop music newsletter Popbitch, a musical featuring the hits of AC/DC "may be in the pipeline." If the report is to be believed, the Australian band's songs will be combined with the Mark Wahlberg movie "Rock Star" for a theater production.
Other groups who have had their back catalogs used in musicals include QUEEN, ABBA and MADNESS.AC/DC's new album may be titled "Black Ice", according to Australian web site Undercover News. That title is apparently one of three that the band is considering for its first album of new material in eight years, with "Runaway Train" another possible contender.
A release date has yet to be announced for the disc, but it could arrive as early as October.The new album will follow 2000's "Stiff Upper Lip". It was recorded at a Canadian studio with PEARL JAM and BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN producer Brendan O'Brien.
Sony BMG recently revealed that the disc will be sold exclusively through Wal-Mart stores, which has caused controversy with critics and fans.

Velvet Found A New Singer?
Sunday, 6 July 2008

Matt Sorum, drummer for VELVET REVOLVER, has revealed the following to Artisan News Service about the next chapter of his band - following the recent departure of vocalist Scott Weiland, who returned to his former outfit STONE TEMPLE PILOTS.
"We're coming out with something in a couple of weeks and I think it's going to surprise everybody. It's exciting. We're moving forward. We're going to keep going and play rock n roll and get a new guy singing so, we did it before we'll do it again."
Sorum went on to say, "We're really seriously thinking about doing something online. Yeah, we got offered a couple of different television ideas you know. Mark Burnett called us and asked us to do that Rockstar thing and we basically said 'No!' to that.
We didn't feel it was right for us. No disrespect to him but it just didn't feel right for what we want to do. As many years as we've tried to keep our integrity intact we felt that wasn't the right forum for us to do it so, we got some ideas and we should have that news in a couple weeks."
