  • FOO FIGHTERS UNVEIL THIRD 'SONIC HIGHWAYS' TRACK

    It's Friday (October 31st), which means it's time for your weekly Foo Fighters track. This time the song is "Congregation," which was recorded at Nashville’s Southern Ground studio with assistance from Zac Brown of the Zac Brown Band. The making of the song and the musical history of the city in which it was recorded will form the basis of Friday night's third episode of Sonic Highways, the eight-part HBO series documenting the creation of the new Foos album.

    • Each installment of the Dave Grohl-directed series follows the band to a different city to record one song for the disc.
    • The first two episodes featured the recording of "Something From Nothing" in Chicago and "The Feast And The Famine" in Washington D.C.
    • The Sonic Highways album comes out November 10th.
    • Meanwhile, Grohl might have been joking when he remarked in an interview with Studio Brussel that he's already thinking about how he wants to make the next Foo Fighters album, saying, "Wait until you see what we’re doing for the next record. That’s some f***ed up s***. I already know what we’re doing for that, and it makes this look like f***ing kindergarten."

  • EDDIE VEDDER AND GEDDY LEE SET FOR THE WHO CANCER FUNDRAISER NEXT MONTH

    Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, Rush frontman Geddy Lee and ex-Oasis vocalist Liam Gallagher are among the performers announced for November 11th’s An Evening Of Who Music In Aid Of Teenage Cancer Trust at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire. Although the Who have not officially been announced, it’s all but certain that Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey will make some type of appearance. Also confirmed to perform that night with the Who’s backing group serving as the house band are Ricky Wilson from the Kaiser Chiefs, Manic Street PreachersJames Dean Bradfield and others.

  • The Who's band consists of Pete Townshend's younger brother, guitarist Simon Townshend, drummer Zak Starkey, bassist Pino Palladino, backing vocalist Billy Nicholls, and keyboardists Loren Gold, John Coury, and Frank Simes -- who also serves as musical director.
  • The Who first performed at the first TCT benefit in 2000. In 2003 the Who released their Live At The Royal Albert Hall album, which featured tracks from their 2000 and 2002 TCT appearances.
  • Over the years the benefit has included performances by Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, Oasis, Madness, and the Cure.

  • COREY TAYLOR REVEALS TITLE OF STONE SOUR COVERS ALBUM

    Stone Sour has set Meanwhile In Burbank as the title of its upcoming covers album, which is tentatively due out next year. The group is currently recording the set at a Burbank, California studio owned by Stone Sour drummer Roy Mayorga. There's no word yet on which songs the band intends to include on the disc, which Stone Sour has had in the planning stages for years.

    Singer Corey Taylor said on the Jasta Show podcast about the record, "This is something that we've been talking about since the first album came out, with Stone Sour. We've always wanted to do this. Even as people have come, people have gone, this is still something we've always come back to, and we just never had the opportunity to do it. And we just kind of said, 'Well, screw it.'"

    • Taylor added, "You're going back to these songs that you just love to listen to, not only just sing. And that's why it's called Meanwhile In Burbank, because, without giving too much away, that's where Roy lives -- he lives in the Valley -- so that's why we call it that. Because it's, like, that's what we're doing right now."
    • Earlier this year, Taylor recorded a well-received cover of Dio's "Rainbow In The Dark" for a Ronnie James Dio tribute album and told us at the time what he wanted to accomplish with it: "I mean, I knew I wasn't going to be able to touch Dio. I just wanted to kind of come close. It was just about having fun and getting the guys all together and being like, 'Okay, we'll do this and we'll do that,' you know, and just really try to get the spirit of the song out, you know. And it came together really, really quick."
    • On its last North American tour, Stone Sour played a different cover every night, including Metallica's "Creeping Death," Kiss' "Love Gun." Judas Priest's "Heading Out To The Highway" and Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes."
    • Taylor's other band, Slipknot, is enjoying the Number One debut earlier this week on the Billboard album chart of the group's first record in six years, .5: The Gray Chapter

  • METALLICA PREPPING DELUXE REISSUES OF FIRST TWO ALBUMS

    Metallica is prepping remastered deluxe editions of the band's first two albums, 1983's Kill 'Em All and 1984's Ride The Lightning, and is asking for help from their fans to put the sets together. Anyone who has photos of the group, along with memorabilia or audio of concerts Metallica played between 1983 and 1985, is being asked to submit them for possible inclusion in the reissues.

    The band said in a post on its website, "We want it all . . . Did you manage to sneak a video camera into a show long before they fit in your pocket? Maybe your old instamatic camera for some snapshots? A cassette Walkman with a microphone? We're looking for anything and everything . . . audio, video, photos, fliers, ticket stubs, the set list you picked up off the floor and in general any mementos you may have from that around that time."

    • Fans with items of interest, including stories, can email info on what they've got to submissions@metclub.com. The band added, "By submitting it, you're saying we can use it should your piece of history land on a release (yes, the lawyers made us add this part!)."
    • The group hopes to have both reissues out sometime in 2015.
    • The band also plans to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the release of its third album, 1986's Master Of Puppets, in 2016 with a book on the making of the record.
    • Metallica confirmed earlier this week that it will spend the week of November 17th as the musical guests on CBS-TV's The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson.

  • FOOTAGE SURFACES OF PAPA ROACH PERFORMING NEW ALBUM TITLE TRACK

    Papa Roach performed the title track from its new album, F.E.A.R. (Face Everything And Rise), in Berlin, Germany on Wednesday night (October 29th), with the song captured on video by a fan. The band's eighth full-length album is set to arrive on January 27th, 2015. Singer Jacoby Shaddix told us how the title concept came about: "I remember when we went into the studio initially, I had a bunch of butcher paper on the wall and that was the first thing I wrote on the wall, was 'FEAR,' and then underneath it, 'Face everything and rise.' And I thought that that acronym -- just the duality of that acronym and that saying just rang so true to me and I felt it had to be on the record somewhere, somehow."

    • The song "F.E.A.R." is also the record's first single, with the official music video expected to arrive on November 4th.
    • The album follows up 2012's The Connection and was recorded in Las Vegas at the Hideout recording studio.
    • Shaddix said about the title track, "Fear is something I face every day. It's about taking a negative and turning it into a positive. When you see the word, it looks like Fear. If you look deeper, it's Face Everything And Rise."
    • Papa Roach has yet to announce its North American touring plans behind the new album.

  • ROB ZOMBIE, HALESTORM, GODSMACK AND MORE SHARE HALLOWEEN STORIES

    It's our favorite time of the year...no, not Christmas, but Halloween. Friday (October 31st) is the big day and we got some rockers to share their own thoughts on why they like -- or don't like -- the holiday, as well some of the costumes they've worn...

  • Rob Zombie told us that Halloween is the only time where he feels normal. "To me, it was always a big event, because it just seemed like that was the moment the whole world seemed normal. You know, everything was a skull, everything was a ghost, a pumpkin, a witch, you know. You could run around in costumes scaring people. I just remember every year ever since I was a little kid, it was always the biggest thing. You'd start planning it in July and then it drags out until December."

    • SWEDISH WOMAN CLAIMS ASHTON KUTCHER CHEATED WITH HER

      A Swedish make-up artists claims that Ashton Kutcher cheated on Mila Kunis with her a month before they took their relationship public back in 2012. Linn Massinger told UK's The Sun that she met him at a bar in June of that year and spent the night at his home in Hollywood.

      She revealed, "He just took my hand and took me upstairs. When I was there he didn't mention Mila or anyone, I hope he thought I was a nice girl." A source also discussed their fling with Star magazine saying, "Ashton was giving Linn the eye from across the bar. He waved them over to where he was sitting with his friends and introduced himself as Chris -- his real first name."

    • REPORT: TERESA GIUDICE PAID FOR HER DAUGHTER'S NEW MUSIC VIDEO

      Teresa Giudice's recent money problems allegedly did not stop her from supporting her daughter's new music career. Radar Online claims that the reality star spent big bucks to produce a video for 13-year-old Gia's girl group, 3KT.

      A source told the website, "Teresa didn't care and spent $10,000 for it. The money Teresa paid only covered a fraction of the costs for the video. It was a very expensive to shoot, and the other girls' families also contributed." Another insider revealed, "Now Joe is absolutely furious with Teresa for defying him, especially since they really need to be on a strict budget. They owe hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees, restitution, and of course millions in the bankruptcy case."

      • 3KT's first video is a cover of the Britney Spears song "Circus."
      • Teresa has also received some criticism for the video for allowing Gia to dress in clothing that seems inappropriate for her age.

    • CELEBRITY GOSSIP

      COCA ROCHA ADDRESSES KENDALL JENNER BULLYING RUMORS: Model Coca Rocha dropped by HuffPost Live this week where she addressed the rumors that 18-year-old Kendall Jenner was bullied backstage during New York Fashion Week in September. Coca said, "It is bad for the industry, and if that all did happen, that's really frustrating to hear. You have to remember that during the shows, it is all very young girls. It's like high school. We breathe and eat and sleep together for two months, so it gets to a point where you're just overwhelmed, frustrated and tired, and I've had my own stories where it gets a little catty backstage. And not everyone's going to get along. It makes sense. Not everyone's going to be your best friend." The 26-year-old added, "But when that does happen, step back, breathe a minute, get out of the room, whatever you need to do. Because in the end, people are watching you under such a fine microscope. People are going to watch whatever you do, so if you want the job, if you want to be respected in the industry, remember that even though you're a young girl, you have to act a little older and a little wiser." Other models at Fashion Week reportedly felt Kendall's involvement was unfair considering her family connections. In other Kardashian news....
