  • Rock and Hollywood royalty turned out for the funeral of Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell, who took his own life on May 18th at the age of 52.

    • Eulogies were given by Matt Cameron and Kim Thayil of Soundgarden, Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament, Audioslave's Tom Morello, Brolin, Bennington and Delson, and Eric Esrailian. producer of the movie The Promise.
    • The title song to that film, which Cornell wrote and performed, was also played at the service. The Temple Of The Dog song "All Night Thing" played as mourners walked from the service to the garden where Cornell's remains were interred.
    • Morello said during his eulogy, "Chris was as melodic as The Beatles, as rocking as Sabbath and as haunting as Edgar Allan Poe."
    • Flowers and several red roses were placed on Cornell's grave marker, which read, "Voice of our generation and an artist for all time."
    • Fans gathered outside the cemetery's gates hours before the start of a public memorial scheduled for 3:00 p.m. PT.
    • Cornell was found dead in his Detroit hotel room in the early hours of May 18th, just a short time after he and Soundgarden had performed in that city. The cause of death was suicide by hanging, although toxicology results are still pending.
    • Various accounts of his final hours have suggested that he may have been under the influence either the anti-anxiety drug Ativan or other substances, although that all remains conjecture until the test results are officially revealed.

  • Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder delivered an emotional performance on Saturday night (May 27th) when he opened a solo European tour in Amsterdam. According to Alternative Nation, Vedder never mentioned late Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell directly, but fans in attendance said that the death of one of his best friends was on Vedder's mind during the entire set.

    At one point in the show, responding to a fan calling out, "I love you," Vedder told the crowd, "Thank you. I need it -- we all need it. I’m thinking of a lot of people tonight. And some in particular and their families. And I just know that healing takes time, if it ever happens. It takes time, and that means you have to start somewhere. So let it be music. Let it be love and togetherness. And let it be Amsterdam."

    • A fan using the screen name Electro_UK wrote on the PearlJam.com forums, "The show was pretty much entirely about Chris without directly mentioning him. It was clear Eddie couldn’t bring himself to talk about it head on. He spoke a little how the healing process can start with music and made numerous references to how sad he was and how much he and his friends were struggling."
    • Electro_UK added, "Frankly it is the bravest performance I have ever seen. At times it seemed like he was a word or two away from breaking into tears . . . On the outro to 'Sometimes' he cried out ‘Where were you, dear God?’ It was heart breaking."
    • At one point in the show Vedder covered the Fugazi song "I'm So Tired," which features lyrics like this: "I’m so tired, sheep are counting me/No more struggle, no more energy/No more patient and you can write that down/It’s all too crazy and I’m not sticking round."
    • A moment of silence was also observed before opening act Glen Hansard's set for the victims of last week's bombing in Manchester, England.
    • Vedder has not issued a public statement since Cornell's death on May 18th, which was ruled a suicide. He was unable to attend Cornell's funeral on Friday (May 26th) due to the start of his tour. Fellow Pearl Jam member Jeff Ament gave one of the eulogies at the funeral.

  • Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi is sponsoring a new music scholarship at BIMM Institute Birmingham in Birmingham, England, according to Blabbermouth. The Tony Iommi BIMM Birmingham Scholarship is worth £20,250 -- or just under $26,000 in U.S. currency -- and recognizes talent and creativity in music.

    Iommi said about the scholarship, "It's fantastic. I just think that you have to go for it and work as hard as you can. Believe in what you are doing. You have to believe in it and follow it through. Work as hard as you can. You have to love it and enjoy it."

    • After the announcement, Iommi sat for an exclusive interview about his life in music and his work with Sabbath, following the band's decision to bid farewell after spending nearly 50 years touring and recording.
    • He told the audience that Sabbath's sound was, like its name, inspired by horror movies. He explained, "Geezer (Butler, Sabbath bassist) and I used to go to a 'Midnight Horror' night at the cinema. I said to Geezer, 'It would great if we could write music to give you the same fear as a horror movie,' and that's what started it off."
    • Sabbath finished its year-long "The End" farewell tour on February 4th in the band's hometown of Birmingham, closing out the quartet's groundbreaking 49-year career with an emotional 15-song set.
    • The band decided to make this tour its last because Iommi, who was diagnosed with cancer in late 2011 and is currently in remission, can no longer travel for extended amounts of time.
    • Iommi recently revealed that he is in the process of mixing the sound from the band's final shows for a possible live album. He said that the tracks will also be used for a documentary about the band.

  • Linkin Park landed the sixth Number One album of its career on Sunday night (May 28th) when the band's seventh full-length studio effort, One More Light, debuted atop the Billboard 200 album chart. The disc sold 111,000 total copies, of which 100,000 were traditional physical CDs and the rest digital, giving the band its first chart-topper since 2012's Living Things. The group's last outing, 2014's The Hunting Party, arrived at Number Three, ending a streak of four straight Number Ones for the Los Angeles act.

    • With their sixth Number One album, Linkin Park ties Bon Jovi, Dave Matthews Band, Metallica and the Eagles with half a dozen apiece.
    • The only acts to have more are the Beatles with 19, the Rolling Stones with nine and, tied at seven each, Led Zeppelin and U2.
    • One More Light arrived in stores on May 19th and featured a sound that veered much more heavily in the direction of pop than previous Linkin Park releases. Fan and radio response has ranged from indifference to disbelief.
    • Linkin Park recently announced a North American tour in support of One More Light, kicking off on July 27th in Boston and ending on October 22nd in Los Angeles.

  • Tool kicked off its spring North American tour last Wednesday (May 24th) in Fairfax, Virginia, a relatively lengthy trek that will include the band's first show in New York City in more than a decade. The second show of the run, in Hershey, Pennsylvania on Thursday (May 25th), featured the first performance of the song "Eulogy" since 2001. Both shows also included "Descending," a piece of music the group debuted a couple years ago.

    • Tool’s tour continues in Rochester, New York on Tuesday (May 30th). The trek will wrap up with a large show in San Bernardino, California on June 24th which will also feature Melvins, Primus, The Crystal Method and more.
    • Despite the long wait for a new album, Tool remains as popular as ever. Drummer Danny Carey told us not long ago that he feels the band's integrity has kept the fans coming back: "We truly are an alternative band. It's an alternative to what other people label as alternative, that actually all sounds the same or whatever. And I think people can identify that and they can relate to it, and they desire the real thing when it's available. You just gotta stick to your laurels and believe in what you're doing, and not do it for money, do it for the art of it, then you can't lose."
    • An update posted at Tool's official website in March indicated that singer Maynard James Keenan had finally begun working on vocals for some of the group's new songs.
    • The other members of the band have been working on new material for the better part of the past year. There is still no release date for the first new Tool album since 2006, although it apparently will not come out this year.

  • Stone Sour and Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor recently opened up publicly for the first time about an incident of sexual abuse that occurred when he was a child during an appearance on Viceland’s The Therapist with Dr. Siri Sat Sam Singh. Taylor recalled, "I was raped by someone in the neighborhood. Where we were living at the time -- we moved around a lot so obviously I had to make friends quickly. There was really only one person to hang out with, to play with and he was this 16-year-old kid."

    Taylor continued, "He would invite me over to his house to play music and one day it became something else and I didn’t tell anybody for a long time because he threatened to hurt me, threatened to hurt my mom. He ended up burning his house down and they fled in the night. It was kind of crazy."

    • During the rest of the session, Taylor spoke at length about other difficulties he faced during his youth, including drug abuse, domestic violence, and a suicide attempt.
    • But he also said that his experiences prepared him for having children of his own, explaining, "I never want my kids to go through what I went through, so it was very important for me to, right out of the gate, set up college funds. Bills were paid, clothes were bought, food was made, everything . . . solid foundation. They don’t have to worry about anything, they’re protected."
    • Taylor, who has three children, told us a while back that becoming a father changed his life significantly: "It definitely makes you re-evaluate how you live your life. It definitely makes you realize that, you know, when you have family, it makes you want to try as hard as you can to spend the rest of your life with them, you know?"
    • Stone Sour's new album Hydrograd is due out on June 30th and features the single "Song #3," which is already Number Nine on the rock radio chart.
    • Stone Sour will be special guests of Korn on the latter act's "Serenity Of Summer" trek, which starts on June 16th in Salt Lake City and wraps on August 2nd in Cleveland.
    AUDIO: SLIPKNOT'S COREY TAYLOR ON FATHERHOOD

  • Gregg Allman, the co-founding keyboardist of the Allman Brothers Band and the iconic figurehead of all of Southern rock, died in his sleep on Saturday (May 27th) at his home in Savannah, Georgia, according to Billboard. Allman has long been at the mercy of his health issues, especially after receiving a liver transplant in 2010. The public last heard from Allman in April, when -- despite rumors of him entering hospice care -- Allman took to Facebook to put his fans at ease, posting, "Hey everyone. I just wanted y’all to know that I’m currently home in Savannah resting on my doctor’s orders. I want to thank you for all the love that you are sending. Looking forward to seeing everyone again. Keep Rockin.'"

    In March, Allman's health issues once again forced him off the road. Last February, it was announced Allman was wrapping up work on his upcoming album, the Don Was-produced, Southern Blood, the long-awaited followup to his 2011 Grammy-nominated set, Low Country Blues. Allman posted a note on his official site announcing the news and a teaser video showing clips from a session at Muscle Shoals, Alabama's legendary FAME Recording Studio.

    In August 2016, it was reported that Gregg Allman was currently under a doctor's care at Rochester, Minnesota's Mayo Clinic and had canceled all of his scheduled concerts through the end of October.

    In 1969, Gregg Allman formed the Allmans in Jacksonville, Florida with older brother Duane Allman on guitar, guitarist Dickey Betts, bassist Berry Oakley, and drummers Butch Trucks and Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson. Tragedy plagued the band's early years with Duane Allman and Oakley dying in motorcycle accidents in 1971 and 1972, respectively. Last January, drummer Butch Trucks committed suicide at age 69.

    Back in 2011, Allman, who fronted the band throughout all its incarnations until their final split in 2014, told Gibson.com, "Being a Sagittarius, I'm pretty introverted. But I was forced to grow out of that when Duane died. When Duane passed away, we all got together and said, 'What do we do now?' I said, 'We either play, or we go crazy. Those are our choices.' So we played. God, did we play. We were on the road for 306 days in 1970, and we stepped that up after my brother died. . . I would like to think I'm part of that tradition. I'm not old and rickety enough to be there just yet, but give me about 15 more years (laughs). I never thought I would be making music this long. I never thought I would live this long. The traveling gets harder, but the playing gets better. . . I was thankful for all the great fun I had had, at such an early age. Every day, back then, involved something new -- something to discover, something to learn, something to play. There was never a dull moment. I’ve had a very interesting life."

    • Allman is survived by his wife, Shannon Allman, his children, Devon, Elijah Blue, Delilah Island Kurtom, and Layla Brooklyn Allman; three grandchildren, his niece, Galadrielle Allman (pronounced: GOLLA-dree-ELL), lifelong friend Chank Middleton, and a large extended family.
    • According the announcement regarding Allman's death, the family suggests that tributes to Gregg can be made to the Gregg Allman Scholarship Fund at The University of Georgia at http://bit.ly/2rM3Vqb as well as Syracuse University's Gregg Allman and Michael Lehman Scholarship Fund http://bit.ly/2qqzoKv
    • Of all of Allman's six marriages, by far his most famous was his union with Cher between 1975 and 1979, which produced their son, musician Elijah Blue and the ill-received 1977 duet album, Two The Hard Way -- which was billed to "Allman And Woman."
    • Aside from his incredible Hammond B-3 playing, distinctive blues vocals, and thousands of incredible live gigs, perhaps Allman's greatest legacy is his songs. Over the years, Allman wrote or co-wrote such classics as "Midnight Rider," "Ain't Wastin' Time No More," "Melissa," "It's Not My Cross to Bear," "Dreams" "Whipping Post," "Little Martha," "Hot 'Lanta," and "Wasted Words," among many others.
    • In 1987, Allman scored a surprise solo hit with the title track to his fifth solo album, I'm No Angel. The song stiffed on the Billboard Hot 100 at a disappointing Number 49, but sailed to Number One on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks.
    • Gregg Allman's last album, 2011's Grammy nominated Low Country Blues, peaked at Number Five on the Billboard 200 album charts and hit the top spot on the magazine's Top Blues Albums list.
    • Sadly, Gregg Allman's name was dragged across the press when the filmmakers behind the big screen adaption of his 2012 memoir, My Cross To Bear, were held responsible for the death of a crewmember. Randall Miller, the director for Midnight Rider, the ill-fated and ultimately scrapped Allman biopic, plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter for the February 20th, 2014 death of camera operator Sarah Jones in Georgia. While shooting without the proper clearances, an oncoming train tore through the set after the movie crew had installed equipment to film on some train tracks and a trestle bridge in rural Wayne County near Savannah. In addition to Jones’ death, six others were injured.
    • Miller received a 10-year sentence -- two years in Wayne County jail, the rest on probation in which he can't serve as a film director, first A.D. or supervisor in charge of a crew. Miller was also ordered to pay a $20,000 fine and be forced to complete 360 hours of community service. Miller’s plea was part of a deal which clears his wife, producer Jody Salvi. Executive producer Jay Sedrish entered an Alford Plea -- a plea where the accused enters a guilty plea in which "a defendant in a criminal case does not admit the criminal act and asserts innocence." Sedrish was also slapped with a $10,000 fine and 10-years probation.
    • In the wake of Sarah Jones' death, Allman, who had served as a producer on the film, publically urged Miller -- and eventually took legal action -- to officially shut down the film's production.
    GREGG ALLMAN AUDIO
    • Gregg Allman said that Allman Brothers Band fans always deserved at least as much credit for a great live show as the band: "The audience is part of that, so much a part of that, because they really draw it out of you. The audience can get -- I mean, they have a lot to do with getting the performance they want. These people -- I've never seen anything like it. They're really into it." ,was so utterly mind blowing & reality distorting to the phsyce of a 22 year old boy who never ceased being 22 in his presence on some level,I doubt he could ever fully grasp...To stand up to him or to take care of him when he needed it required alot of internal face slapping to shake myself out of the awe one feels for one of their genuine heros...to just see the man...& I'd wager Greg got that alot...I think it was really almost unreal for people younger than him to actually see him free of the mighty legend...like some wild west gunfighter of a breed no longer made...& when different brilliant members would work for him or launch careers thru him...or just say they met him...let alone knew him...the conflict that everyone felt at that interaction was most always an act of love...at least for as long as& however we could see him & know him & yes ultimately love the man...So many friends of mine are feeling this right now & I send them so much love...Among the many things that Greg caused whether he knew it or not was my meeting my wife & therefore our baby...

      And as personal & as recently as these peripheral effects upon me...all the while...that voice...s*** ever since I was two years old...haunting...as he'd been haunted...I wish I coulda told him that...I wish I coulda made him see...his massive effect on people...around him & nowhere near...I guess that voice will haunt me still...I hope he finds peace & I hope his family does."

      Steppenwolf: "Lost another legend today, Gregg Allman of the trailblazing Allman Brothers Band has passed away at the age of 69. Rock will never be the same."

      The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's John McEuen: "Such difficult news about Gregg Allman. I have put a remembrance piece of music of his on my website SyndicatedNews NET LLCnet It is the first recording of Just Not My Cross To Bear, which I did in his Hollywood living room the week he wrote it, before Allman Brothers Band got under way. He was a Southern Gentleman who believed in his music and gave it his all. His heart and soul touched all who knew his name, and he loved singing. . . Thanks, Gregg, for leaving us with so much of you to keep with us."

      Carmine Appice: "Wow another rocker gone! Greg Allman. Who was an old friend. What a talent he was. Pioneer great voice. I loved his voice. Met in early 70s with Allman Bros and Cactus did many gigs. Jammed many times hung out with him . Jammed in nyc at the beacon theater with him. Sad very sad. RIP my old friend. Sympathy goes out to his family and his bandmates."

      Martha Quinn: "Friends I need to tell you Gregg Allman has passed away. I imagine this is how he leaves us: Guitar in hand, rock's great Midnight Rider, bound to keep on riding. Rest in Peace legend."

      Glenn Hughes: "So deeply saddened to hear that brother Gregg Allman has passed.

      Taj Mahal: "He fought the good fight,played it the way he heard it and loved every moment he was making music! He was a great friend to me and we all will miss him! RIP Bro Greg"

      The Outlaws: "From the band that changed the face of popular music and inspired a generation, we morn the loss of Gregg Allman, a founding member and band's namesake. We send our deepest and most respectful condolences to his family, and loved ones."

      Canned Heat: "R.I.P. Gregg Allman - A Fantastic Musician and a Really Nice Man,you will be missed by many."

      Charlie Daniels: "Just got the word Gregg Allman has passed away. Rest in peace, brother. You were the best Dixie had. You will be missed. Gregg Allman had a feeling for the blues very few ever have. Hard to believe that magnificent voice is stilled forever."

      Keith Urban: "My heart breaks today at the passing of soul brutha Gregg Allman. Blessings and peace to all the Allman family."

      Wynonna: "I recently spent time with this beautiful spirit & sang every word at the concert. I sit here stunned that we have lost another legend. Hard to process this loss."

      Travis Tritt: "I'm so very saddened to hear of the passing of rock & blues legend Gregg Allman. He was such a huge influence on me. Gregg Allman was one of the most soulful singers I ever heard. This is a devastating loss to music fans all over the planet."

      Ronnie Milsap: "Gregg Allman, WHAT A SINGER! You'll be greatly missed, Rest in Peace, my Blues Brother."

      Billy Ray Cyrus: "RIP Gregg Allman. A true legend."

      The Buckinghams' Dennis Tufano: "Oh no... we lose another. R.I.P. Gregg Allman"

      Y&T's Dave Meniketti: "When I was first starting to learn to play guitar in the early 70s, one of my favorite bands to listen to was The Allman Brothers Band. That music has continued to stay with me and though I so very much wished I had the chance to see Duane & Berry live, I have the fond memories of seeing many an Allman Brothers show in the 70s & 80s. . . When I hear his voice on the very first ABB album singing 'It's Not My Cross To Bear,' it still gives me the chills. His music will live on with those who loved his huge contribution to the music scene & decades with that legendary band. Count me as one of those. RIP Gregg Allman."

Congratulations are in order! Miranda Kerr, 34, married Evan Spiegel, 26, in a private, lavish ceremony in southern California on Saturday.

REPORT: BILL COSBY INCREASINGLY ISOLATED, PARANOID

As the disgraced comedian Bill Cosby becomes increasingly isolated from his Hollywood friends in the wake of his sexual assault trial, the 79-year-old is becoming more and more paranoid and fearful, according to a report in Page Six. The trail begins June 5th. In the lead-up of pre-trial hearings and jury selection in Pittsburgh, Cosby reportedly refused to stay in area hotels because of his fears. "He and his wife are afraid that if he stayed at a hotel, someone will find a way to poison him, put something in his food," a source who works closely with Cosby and his family told Page Six. Instead of staying close by, he opted to wake up at 2:30 am and fly his private jet to court from his suburban Philadelphia home. A source tells Page Six that his blindness contributes to his fear that he will be "poisoned" or that someone will "sneak into his room." Cosby has been accused of assaulting 60 women, some of whom allege that he slipped drugs into their drinks to make them more compliant. His fear that he would himself be drugged led him to bring bottled water all the way from home to the courthouse. He is also nervous about spyware. "He’s thinking and his team is thinking, if he’s put in a hotel room, someone will find out which room he’s staying in and they’ll put a bug or a device in the room," the source said. Cosby is also resentful of his Hollywood pals who refuse to lend support. "Guys like Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence and Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, guys that he paved the way for … they won’t offer any support," the family source spills. The trial will address accusations that he drugged and assaulted Andrea Constand in 2004. He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
