NEWS BITS
  • On May 26, the latest version of Ritchie Blackmore‘s Rainbow will release its first studio recordings. The two songs are currently available for pre-order. While the first, “Land of Hope and Glory,” is a new composition, “I Surrender” is a re-recording of the Russ Ballard (of Argent fame) tune Rainbow cut for 1981’s Difficult to Cure. In its original form, “I Surrender” became one of their biggest hits, reaching No. 3 in the U.K. and No. 10 on the U.S. Mainstream Rock chart. These new tracks were recorded with singer Ronnie Romero, the Lords of Black frontman whom Blackmore hand-picked to front this new version of Rainbow for a series of concerts in the summer of 2016. “When I heard him, he seemed like the right guy to sing the [Ronnie James] Dio-era songs of Rainbow,” Blackmore said last month. “He’s versatile. He can sing like Freddie Mercury, Ronnie James Dio or Graham Bonnet. I wrote one new song and also recorded one of the old ones. Ronnie, who’s in Madrid now, added his vocals and sent it back.” --- ultimateclassicrock

  • On Monday night (May 22), Ariana Grande's concert at the Manchester Arena ended with an emergency evacuation after reports of explosions were heard. Waves of photos pervaded social media of audience members fleeing the venue bloody and with torn clothing. The crowd was predominantly young kids, teenagers and their parents. The Greater Manchester Police Department reported 19 people were killed and about 50 more people were injured by an explosion as they were exiting the venue. Police are telling everyone to avoid the area so first responders can continue to investigate the scene. The GM Police are treating the incident as a terrorist attack. Police stated the attack was perpetrated by a suicide bomber wearing a backpack. The incident marks the worst terrorist attack on U.K. soil since the July 2005 London bombings. --- rollingStone

  • Don Henley has announced plans to extend his 2017 solo tour. The new North American dates will run from June 6-18, while a special 70th birthday concert at American Airlines Arena in Dalles is planned for July 22. The birthday celebration will include several surprise guests, and a career-spanning set list that covers his solo work as well as songs he wrote and performed with Eagles. On July 15 and 29, Henley will also join his Eagles bandmates to headline the new Classic East and Classic West festivals in New York and Los Angeles. These will be the first shows the group has played since co-founder Glenn Frey‘s death in January 2016. --- ultimateclassicrock

  • Chris Cornell's death has been ruled a suicide by hanging. A Michigan medical examiner made the ruling on Thursday (May 18), hours after the 52-year-old Soundgarden singer was found dead in a Detroit hotel room on Wednesday night (May 17). His widow Vicky Karayiannis previously assured family and friends Cornell was not suicidal or depressed before his death. A family friend who spoke with her on Thursday morning said Vicky had chatted with her husband during soundcheck before he took the stage in Detroit, Michigan and after Wednesday night's show, and she insisted her husband was in no way suicidal. Vicky and Chris share two kids, while the rocker also leaves behind a 16-year-old from his first marriage to Susan Silver. --- VVN Music

  • The Beatles have already set their sights on the next expanded reissue project after this month’s look back at Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Producer Giles Martin, son of the late Beatles collaborator George Martin, confirms they’ll focus on the the band’s 1968 self-titled release, better known as the White Album. He admits that the task is far more daunting this time – despite the fact that the upcoming super-deluxe Sgt. Pepper’s set includes a whopping 100 minutes of outtakes, many previously unheard and unreleased. “The White Album, which is the next release – that is where they started becoming indulgent,” Giles told the BBC in a new interview. “There are 70 takes of ‘Sexy Sadie,’ for instance. The efficiency went slightly out the window. There’s a lot of stuff. So, it’s getting the balance right.” --- ultimateclassicrock
