NEWS BITS
  • Roger Waters will make his first-ever Newport Folk Festival appearance when he headlines the long-running fest on July 24th. The former Pink Floyd bassist will craft a "very special" set list especially curated for the Rhode Island fest, a festival rep tells Rolling Stone. Waters joins a lineup that already features Sufjan Stevens, Courtney Barnett, the Decemberists, J Mascis, Iron & Wine with Ben Bridwell and many more artists who will head to Newport's Fort Adams State Park from July 24th to 26th. --- rollingstone

  • Spotify has announced that it has added video content and new playlists in its latest update, as it works to maintain its footing in the ever-expanding streaming market. The service will now offer video clips and audio shows, including content from Disney, ABC, NBC, ESPN, BBC News, Comedy Central and MTV, among others. Spotify mobile apps now also offer a feature that detects the speed at which someone is running and will offer music at that approximated tempo. The company is also teaming with Nike and integrating RunKeeper with Spotify Running later this year. The service is now also offering mood-centric playlists that recall rival Songza's approach to playlists. The company also announced that it was teaming with Starbucks to create what it called a new music "ecosystem," in which baristas programmed music for their specific coffee shops and espresso enthusiasts could earn loyalty points for using Spotify. --- rollingstone

  • The Kinks' presence on the U.S. charts was an on-and-off-again relationship over the years, but the adoration their musical peers and followers showered on the influential British rock outfit was far less fickle. From garage-rock pioneers to baroque pop maestros to stadium headliners, the Kinks' legend grows larger with every year. Not long ago, Julien Temple confirmed he's taking their story to the big screen, and now, Screen Daily is reporting the filmmakers have cast the two leads in You Really Got Me. Johnny Flynn (of the TV series Scrotal Recall) and George Mackay (of the 2014 film Pride) will play Ray and Dave Davies, respectively, the British brothers who formed the band.  "The project, which will focus on the tension between genius songwriter rivalry Ray Davies and his rebel rousing brother Dave Davies will hit your face sometime next year," reads a blurb on Temple's website. --- Billboard

  • Brace yourselves for a Metal Meltdown, Las Vegans: On May 30, four veteran rock bands are scheduled to descend upon the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas for a hits-filled concert that’s being filmed for theatrical release. The evening’s entertainment, set to begin at 6PM, includes sets from Extreme, Twisted Sister, Skid Row and Great White. The venue promises that each act will be “performing their biggest hits,” although Extreme’s set is special — the band, currently in the middle of its Pornograffitti Live 25th Anniversary tour, will perform that album in its entirety. The whole show is being filmed and recorded for an array of releases that include a 3D theatrical engagement as well as DVD, Blu-ray, CD and vinyl formats.  --- ultimateclassicrock

  • David Lee Roth says he’ll never perform Sammy Hagar-era Van Halen songs, and says the reasons are obvious. First, Roth was never sure about Hagar’s commitment to the work. Second, he says, the public has made it clear which edition they favor. “Well, there’s a credibility issue there,” Roth said, back stage at the Billboard Music Awards. “Good, bad or in the middle, you know Roth means it; the other guy doesn’t. And that’s why it sold half as well — literally, Midas Bible half. Never did better than half." Of course, Hagar has previously expressed his own opinion on this subject. “The difference between Dave and I in that band, besides all the other million things, is that he can’t sing any of the ‘Van Hagar’-era songs. Maybe he could do ‘Finish What You Started,’ possibly.”  --- ultimateclassicrock

  • Yes has announced that their bassist, Chris Squire, has been diagnosed with Acute Erythroid Leukemia (AEL), an uncommon form of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Squire will remain home from the band's summer tour at his home in Phoenix while he undergoes treatment. AEL is a rare form of leukemia that accounts for only 5% of diagnosed cases. Treatment normally includes various forms of chemotherapy; however, average survival rates can range from 3 to 6 months for the worst form of the disease to 2+ years for the mildest form. Squire said in a press release, "This will be the first time since the band formed in 1968 that YES will have performed live without me. But the other guys and myself have agreed that Billy Sherwood will do an excellent job of covering my parts and the show as a whole will deliver the same YES experience that our fans have come to expect over the years." --- VVN

  • George Harrison's Maton Mastersound guitar, used during the Beatles' live performances in the summer of 1963, sold for $485,000 at Julien's Auctions May 15. The auction, which focused entirely on unique items from throughout music history, also featured a black sequined glove worn by Michael Jackson, a stage-worn tank top donned by Madonna and Elvis Presley's marriage certificate and tour bus, but it was Harrison's used guitar that sold for the highest bid at the auction, which took place at New York's Hard Rock Café. According to Julien's, the Maton guitar was lent to Harrison by Barratt's Music Store while the Beatle's legendary Gretsch Country Gentleman guitar was being repaired. Harrison played the Maton at nearly a dozen concerts during July and August 1963, including a hometown gig in Liverpool. --- rollingstone
