NEWS BITS
  • Ex-King Crimson member Adrian Belew has composed the music for the new Pixar short Piper. Piper, the story of a hungry sandpiper hatchling who ventures from her nest for the first time, will appear in theaters before the new Pixar feature Finding Dory. The short was directed by Alan Barillaro who has worked on practically every one of Pixar's features and was the supervising animator for The Incredibles, Wall*E and Brave. He then went on to work with the company's software developers to help build in more flexibility for their animation software. The result was a a short animation test of a small bird, a sandpiper, on a beach. The test footage was eventually developed into the new feature. For Belew, this is the first time he has written for film after forty-plus years as a musician including almost thirty years as the vocalist and guitarist for King Crimson (1981 to 2009), along with with periods working with Frank Zappa, David Bowie, Talking Heads, Tom Tom Club and Nine Inch Nails. He has also released over fifteen solo albums and was instrumental in designing the Parker Fly signature guitar. --- VVN

  • Grammy Award-winning rock band Wilco have confirmed a sweeping world tour for the latter half of 2016, including dates in Asia, Europe and South America. The tour comes as a welcome surprise for South America in particular, who haven’t seen the Chicago-based alt-rockers since 2005 at Rio de Janeiro’s TIM Festival. This time around, Wilco will be hitting Brazil, Uruguay, Chile and Argentina for concerts and festival appearances on the South American leg of their tour after swinging along the U.S.’ West Coast to play multiple shows in Washington, Oregon, California and Utah. --- Paste

  • The Ramones‘ landmark 1976 debut will return to stores later this year with a remastered and expanded edition issued in honor of the album’s 40th anniversary. Due July 29, the deluxe Ramones adds a healthy assortment of extras, including a hefty set of in-depth liner notes that adds production notes from producer Craig Leon, an essay written by journalist Mitchell Cohen and additional shots from photographer Roberta Bayley, who took the picture on the album cover. Packaged in a 12×12 hardcover book, the anniversary edition adds a pair of extra discs to the record, as well as a vinyl disc. The first CD offers stereo and mono mixes of Ramones, both assembled by Leon. On the second disc, fans will find 18 single edits and demos, while the third disc adds two sets recorded at the Roxy on Aug. 12, 1976. Finally, the set is rounded out by a vinyl disc offering Leon’s 40th anniversary mono mix of the LP. --- ultimateclassicrock

  • Stephen Stills says he was “flattered” when he found out that Jimi Hendrix wanted him to play bass with him. The pair played together on Stills’ self-titled debut album in 1970, which was released a month before the guitar icon died. But he says he was asked to join Hendrix’s band full-time, but a hand injury prevented him from doing so. Stills tells Classic Rock: “I didn’t realise they were really discussing it seriously until I read Mitch Mitchell’s book. I was quite flattered. But they did call me. I was in Hawaii with a broken hand, so I couldn’t go." And asked if he was tempted, the multi-instrumentalist says: “I’d have done it in a heartbeat, as long as it paid. But there were an awful lot of people that had an awful lot invested in Crosby, Stills & Nash.” --- TeamRock

  • Dire Straits are one of the few major bands who’ve stayed broken up after splitting — and according to former bassist John Illsley, it seems likely to stay that way. Speaking with Classic Rock Magazine for the release of his latest solo album, Long Shadow, Illsley talked about recording the new LP at his friend and former bandmate Mark Knopfler’s studio — and pointed out that even though the two remain friends, they don’t see the point in trying to recapture the past. “We’ve talked about it but I think we’ve come to the conclusion to leave it the way it is,” said Illsley. “It’s very difficult to recreate the energy of 1991-92, that last tour we did — which was, in my mind, the best thing we did and the best band we ever had. To go back and try recreate that and make it was good would be quite difficult.” That being said, Illsley and Knopfler are both aware of lingering demand for a reunion — and like any other inactive rock act, they’ve left their fair share of money on the table. “I know there would be an audience for it and all sorts of crazy offers come in from time to time,” he admitted. “In a sense, it’s up to him, and I don’t feel that he wants to go there right now. I completely appreciate that right now and I’m very happy doing what I’m doing.” So happy, in fact, that even though he recorded some of Long Shadow at Knopfler’s studio, he didn’t feel the need to enlist his participation. “I’ve already got some very fine guitar players around me. It felt that maybe I was over-egging the pudding if I asked Mark to do it. Maybe on the next one,” said Illsley. “We have a very good, solid relationship, so it certainly isn’t any reflection of our friendship.” --- ultimateclassicrock
