A couple of days ago, we told you rumor had it that the 2012 Lollapalooza lineup would feature Red Hot Chili Peppers and Black Sabbath — and now we can confirm that the rumors were right on the money. This year’s list of acts has been unveiled, and it’s a doozy.
You’d think everyone at Third Man Records would have their hands full getting ready for the release of Jack White‘s upcoming solo debut, ‘Blunderbuss,’ on April 24. But they still have a few hours left in the day, apparently, because the latest installment of the label’s quarterly subscription series, dubbed the Vault, is offering members a whole bunch of White-related goodies.
Willie Nelson has always been known as a gifted interpreter of other people’s songs, but lately, he seems to be taking his fondness for surprising cover choices up a notch; recently he made headlines with his version of Coldplay‘s ‘The Scientist,’ now comes word that Willie has covered Pearl Jam‘s ‘Just Breathe’ for his upcoming album ‘Heroes.’
Now that you can officially stream the full-length version of ‘Live to Rise,’ Soundgarden‘s song on the ‘Avengers’ soundtrack — and first new music in 15 years — you’re probably wondering how it fits into the band’s next album, due sometime this year.
Bristling with high-volume aggression and boasting lyrics that read like an anthem to teen jealousy, Jack White‘s ‘Sixteen Saltines’ is a persuasive introduction to the former White Stripe’s solo career — and now it has an unforgettable video to go with its brain-burrowing hooks.
Lollapalooza’s luster has faded a bit since its Buzz Bin-raiding early ’90s heyday as the premiere rock festival in all the land, but it’s still going strong. In fact, they traveled to Chile last weekend, drawing more than 50,000 fans to a lineup that included Bjork, TV on the Radio, Band of Horses, and the headlining Foo Fighters.
It doesn’t look like Guns N’ Roses fans will be getting the reunion they’ve been waiting for when the band is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next Saturday (April 14). But they can take some small consolation in the knowledge that one of the biggest bands of the last 20 years will be welcoming Guns into the Hall.
In the latest installment of what’s beginning to seem like a quest to become the Willy Wonka of rock ‘n’ roll, Jack White has followed up his label’s 3RPM vinyl compilation by releasing 1,000 flexidisc copies of ‘Freedom at 21,’ the next single from his upcoming solo album ‘Blunderbuss.’ And when we say “releasing,” we mean literally — as in into the sky. Attached to helium balloons.
Soundgarden are playing to healthy crowds on their reunion tour — and their nabbed a plum spot on the ‘Avengers’ soundtrack with its first new song in more than 15 years — but frontman Chris Cornell knows rock ‘n’ roll doesn’t dominate the charts the way it used to, and it’s got him feeling sort of glum.
There are people who think Jack White is one of the most vital forces in modern rock music, and there are people who think he’s a derivative hack whose entire career has been one long hipster pose. His label’s latest release will probably only serve to reinforce both groups’ opinions.
