Angel’s Rock Report– Crüe, Slash, Jack White [PHOTOS]
Motley Crue‘s Las Vegas run is inspiring some new material for their next album. Bassist Nikki Sixx tweeted, “Back into writing session for new Crue here in Vegas…This first song is really ratty, sexy and loud.” Drummer Tommy Lee added on his own Twitter, “With [Sixx A.M.'s James Michael] and Nikki in da studio, kids! New Crue comin’!”
The residency runs through Sunday with the next show scheduled for tonight.
Slash will return to the road in May in support of his second, as-yet-untitled solo album, which is due out May 22nd. The road show starts on May 3rd in Baltimore and hits 13 cities before wrapping up on May 26th in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The jaunt includes appearances at three festivals — May 5th at Carolina Rebellion, May 19th at Rock on the Range and May 25th at Rocklahoma.
Jack White has announced his first-ever solo headline shows. The four gigs next month see him play Chattanooga, Tennessee March 10th, Birmingham, Alabama March 12th, Memphis March 13th and Tulsa, Oklahoma March 15th. More dates are expected around his appearances at The Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama the weekend of May 18th and The Sasquatch Festival May 26th at The Gorge.
The video for White’s first single, “Love Interruption,” will debut on Vevo.com at 9:30 a.m. (MST) today.
An all-star lineup will tour South America this spring under the name Titans of Rock. Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens leaked the news of the tour on his Facebook page, saying he would be on the tour along with Velvet Revolver/ex-Guns n’ Roses members Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum, Def Leppard‘s Joe Elliot, Collective Soul‘s Ed Roland, ex-Metallica bassist Jason Newsted, Motley Crue‘s Vince Neil and ex-Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach. The tour starts April 19th in Lima, Peru.
Blink 182 singer-guitarist Tom DeLonge has already made one film, called Love, with his side band Angels and Airwaves. Now DeLonge has three more film projects in the works. He tells NME, “We’ve got three movies ideas that we’re working on, two specifically; one has a completely written script, which I can’t go into yet. But the [animated film] Poet Anderson is a very large, ambitious idea; it’s about dreams and near-death experiences. It’ll have the pacing of a mainstream film, but it’ll look very artistic. It’ll allow us to create a score album that’s very different to anything Angels and Airwaves has done in the past.”
So another film for you NOT to see. I’m an avid Blink fan and even I wouldn’t watch this sh**.
