Foo Fighters Team Up With Mick Jagger, Godsmack & Pantera Drop Albums Tomorrow — Angel’s Rock Report
Let's start with my favorite news of the week. Mick Jagger won't be performing with his Rolling Stones bandmates when he hosts Saturday Night Live this week -- he's picked three acts to play with that could be musical guests in their own right. Foo Fighters and Arcade Fire -- both veteran performers of SNL -- and Jeff Beck will back up Jagger. There's no word yet on what songs Jagger will be doing on the show.
Sixx A.M. are hoping to raise funds for the City of Hope cancer research hospital using their new video for "Are You With Me." Fans who donate money at iHeartRadio.com/hope will get a code that allows access to the video before its official debut on May 23rd.
10 Years fans, you'll think you've stepped back in time when you see the group on the road starting next week. Brian Vodinh, who took over as guitarist in 2009 when Matt Wantland left the band, is heading back to his original spot as their drummer. He says, "After touring for more than two years with me playing guitar, we collectively decided that it felt like the heartbeat had just changed a little and it was time to pump that old blood back into the veins of 10 Years."
