  • Robert Plant has repeatedly dashed prospects for ever again reuiniting with his surviving Led Zeppelin mates.  He recently expanded that to say he can't imagine ever performing with Jimmy Page again in any configuration.  He made that apparent during an interview with a Kentucky radio station.  Hear it below. Lots of interesting insights into Plant's outlook on music and life in general in the interview. Cue to about the 8 minute mark to hear that specific segment.

  • There was no Rocker we had higher regard and respect for than Tom Petty. As difficult as coming to terms with his death is for many fans, it is, of course, so much more difficult for those closest to him. Despite that, with dignity and grace, his family shares this message.

  • There's already plenty of firepower in the solo band Joe Perry has assembled. Robin Zander of Cheap Trick, Terry Reid and David Johansn, Stone Temple Pilots veteran Robert DeLeo and Extreme and, briefly, Van Halen frontman Gary Cherone are regulars. Tuesday night (1/16) during the pre-release concert party the Aerosmith guitarist did for his Sweetzerland Manifesto album, the already formidable lineup was joined by Slash, Chris Robinson of Black Crowes fame and actor/musician Johnny Depp.

    Perry brought the concert at the Roxy Theater in LA to a smashing end by destoying his guitar at the end of Train Kept A Rollin'.

  • The widow of Glenn Frey has filed a wrongful death suit against the hospital her late husband was being treated at when he died in January of 2016.   The claim contends that the Eagles guitarist was "...rendered sick, sore, lame and disabled" as a result of negligence on the part of  the hospital and that he was in both pain and mental anguish in the period leading up to his death from what the group had stated were '...complications from acute ulcerative colitis, pneumonia and rheumatoid arthritis."  The suit against Mount Sinai Hospital was filed just hours before the deadline under New York State's statuate of limitations for suits claiming wrongful death.   Frey died on January 18, 2016.

    Ann Wilson is working on an album of cover songs of lost Rockers she admired.  The Heart member revealed the project on social media, posting, "It's a project very dear to me - a collection of songs by artists who have departed in the last several years: Leonard Choen, David Bowie, Tom Petty and Chris Cornell to name a few.  It's thriling work and I can't wait for you to hear what we are doing!".  No title or release date have been announced yet.

  • Simple Man is counted as a favorite by legions of Lynyrd Skynrd fans.  The lead vocal Ronnie van Zant laid down was one of his best - and it sounds just as strong or stronger without the backing music.
