Eric Moore & The Godz Tribute
THE EASY OUTS NEW RELEASE!!!
In 2008, "The Easy Outs" were formed by Lead singer/songwriter Bruce Ferguson who released their first self titled album in 2009. Their debut album was followed by "Desolate Row" in 2015. They are busting into 2018 with "Hot Mess," their 3rd release on Dead Walker Records. Although members have changed, the intense in your face 70s rock feel is the same. From influences such as The New York Dolls, The Stooges and numerous others that can be heard in each song while adding their own twist. “Superb rock band keeping it old school but with a modern twist. If you like good old full on rock as it should be then these guys are spot on, no strangers to the music business they know how to write, perform, and be rock stars, which they do extremely well. Full of highs, lows and melodic at times accompanied with some cool vibrant lyrics and fantastic guitar solos really puts these guys in a league of there own. Vocally superb, Lyrically supreme and the music kicks ass big time”

Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow to showcase new track on live album
Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow to release live album Memories in Rock II recorded during their 2017 UK tour - will feature a new studio track
Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow have announced they’ll release a new live album titled Memories In Rock II later this year. It was recorded during the band’s shows across the UK last year and will feature a brand new track. While a final release date has still to be confirmed, the band have issued a 9-minute video to showcase the album, featuring live clips and interview footage. In the video, Blackmore says of his return to rock: “Rainbow is part of my life, as is Deep Purple. I just got back together for a few shows because I wanted to have a blast on the Strat. “That’s always good fun but it’s not something I will do all the time. I might do another couple of shows. Japan wants us and a lot of other places. “Blackmore’s Night is really my main music – that’s much more challenging. It’s not so easy to play.”Further album details will be revealed in due course, while the full video can be seen below. Blackmore reactivated Rainbow with Lords Of Black singer Ronnie Romero in 2015, also bringing in Stratovarius keyboardist Jens Johansson, Blackmore’s Night drummer David Keith and bassist Bob Nouveau.
Rammstein return to the studio
Rammstein have posted a series of pictures on Facebook to report they are back in the studio. The images, which can be seen below, are accompanied by the caption: “Work in progress!” and suggest they are putting the pieces in place for the long-awaited follow-up to 2009’s Liebe ist für alle da. In May last year guitarists Richard Kruspe and Paul Landers told Metal Hammer that their goal for their next album was to “try unusual methods, new ideas, and change the path that one usually has” and make the record a “milestone” in their career.
Kruspe later hinted that the as-yet-untitled album could be their final release.He said: “I just feel like, for some reason, that it’s going to be the last record we do. That’s a feeling, I can be wrong – but at the moment, I feel like this is maybe the last shot we have.“I want to give 200% and make it as good as it can be. When I listen to the stuff, there’s so much potential. I’m very pleased about what we’re doing at the moment, so I’m looking forward to starting recording maybe next year.”The band launched their live package Rammstein: Paris in May 2017 which was recorded during their Made In Germany 1995-2011 tour.
Bon Scott honoured with permanent sculpture on Melbourne’s AC/DC Lane
Late AC/DC legend Bon Scott is being immortalised with a sculpture in Australia. The ‘bas-relief’ sculpture - a low relief carved from a wall - of Scottish born Bon comes out of the historic Cherry Bar brick wall on Melbourne’s AC/DC Lane. It’s three metres high, two metres wide and protrudes 15cm.
Officially supported by the Victorian Government’s 'Rockin’ The Laneways' initiative, the statue has been created by street artist Mike Makatron after Cherry Bar owner James Young came up with the concept.
The sculpture will be officially unveiled at 11 am local time on Tuesday 6th March, however Australian publicists Jameson & Co have shared this image ahead of the launch showing Mike Makatron at work on the installation...follow story at: https://www.planetrock.com/news/rock-news/photo-bon-scott-honoured-with-permanent-sculpture-on-melbournes-acdc-lane/
