U2’s latest world tour got off to an unsteady start in Vancouver on Thursday night, when lead guitarist The Edge fell off the edge of the stage.
The Edge, whose real name is Dave Evans, walked off the edge of the walkway connecting the main stage and the B-stage at the Rogers Arena, during a rendition of I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For. The concert was the first of the band’s Innocence and Experience tour, which backs their latest album, Songs of Innocence.
Sad news to report, as blues legend B.B. King has passed away at the age of 89. The all-time guitar great died Thursday night (May 14) in Las Vegas, where he had been in home hospice care after being briefly hospitalized for dehydration related to his Type II diabetes in April. The news was confirmed by his daughter Claudette in a post on Facebook.
Armed with his trusted guitar Lucille, King was a giant in the music world, influencing such artists as Eric Clapton and the late Stevie Ray Vaughan. He won 15 Grammys during the course of his career, with the first coming in 1970 for his signature hit “The Thrill Is Gone.” But his first hit record dated back to 1951, when he spent four months on top of the charts with the tune “Three O’Clock Blues.”
Anthemic, multi-platinum rockers Hinder have just released their fifth studio album, When The Smoke Clears, via The End Records/ADA. When The Smoke Clears is available on digital, CD and LP formats, and in multiple album bundle configurations.
With over a decade-long career under their belts, and having honed their chops touring with the likes of Mötley Crüe, Nickelback, Aerosmith and Papa Roach, When The Smoke Clears, the debut release with Hinder's new lead vocalist Marshal Dutton, has breathed new sound, and new air, into the ever-evolving band. The songs on When the Smoke Clears run the gamut from rowdy rock to subtle country influence, to memorable pop hooks, all of which retain the DNA-distinct spirit of Hinder. That ability to walk the tightrope between genres, without a net, is something the band has had fun with in creating the new album.
Iconic rock guitarist Slash has partnered with International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) to raise awareness of the slaughter of elephants which is leading to their early extinction. Slash and singer Myles Kennedy composed the song 'Beneath the Savage Sun' to help IFAW stop the needless slaughter of elephants for their ivory tusks and raise awareness of the global elephant crisis. Proceeds of the sale of the digital downloads of this song will go to IFAW. The U.S.-based charity IFAW works around the world on every aspect of the elephant crisis on the front lines to stop the killing of elephants, in transit countries to stop the trafficking of ivory and in consumer countries to stop the demand for ivory products. Scroll down or click 'read more' to check out the song.
“An elephant is killed every 15 minutes for its ivory and the result is the elephant population has declined 95% in the past century" Slash says "Seeing that these majestic animals are on the path to extinction, possibly within the next decade, we wrote ‘Beneath The Savage Sun’ and partnered with IFAW. Donate to IFAW’s work to take action and protect elephants”
Legendary guitarist, JOE SATRIANI, announces plans to release his 15th solo studio album, “SHOCKWAVE SUPERNOVA”, on Friday 24th July, making him one of the first to utilise the new “Friday, Global Release Day” for music. The album will be released on CD, download and 2 LP vinyl. Satriani’s World Tour begins 17th September in Europe (Sept 26th Satriani will play in Parkstad Limburg Theaters in Heerlen). The UK leg of the European tour starts November 1st at the O2 Apollo Manchester with special guest Dan Patlansky. USA Tour planned for early 2016.
It would be easy to call Shockwave Supernova a “masterpiece” or “the last word on guitar” from the world’s most commercially successful solo guitar performer. Satch, however, sees it much more personally. He has consistently advanced the artistry of the instrument; an effort he dedicated himself to on 18th September, 1970, the day his idol Jimi Hendrix died.
