NEWS BITS
  • Scotty Moore, a pioneering rock guitarist best known for backing Elvis Presley as a member of his original band and into superstardom, died Tuesday at the age of 84. Moore, who played on Presley's first hit, "That's All Right (Mama)," as well as such singles as "Heartbreak Hotel" and "Hound Dog," died in Nashville, Tennessee, after several months of poor health. Moore, who was born in Gadsen, Tennessee, and began playing the guitar at age 8, was recruited for Presley's band by legendary producer Sam Phillips in 1954. It was that band — dubbed the Blue Moon Boys, with Moore, bassist Bill Black and drummer D.J. Fontana — that backed Presley over much of the next decade on the songs that earned him the title of the King of Rock 'n' Roll. --- Reuters

  • Former Lynyrd Skynyrd drummer Artimus Pyle will co-write and produce a biopic about his life with the Southern rock band. The film, tentatively titled Free Bird, also focuses on one of the music's most tragic moments: The 1977 plane crash that claimed the lives of six people, including his friend and Skynyrd frontman Ronnie Van Zant. "This film's story — MY story — is not just about the plane crash but also about my personal relationship with the genius that was Ronnie Van Zant, whom I loved like a brother and still miss to this day," Pyle said of the film in a statement. Speaking to Deadline, Pyle added, "This is a much deserved movie for the fans of Skynyrd." Pyle, who served as Skynyrd's drummer from 1974 to 1991 and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, penned the Free Bird script with the film's director Jared Cohn. Cleopatra Films will produce the film, which is scheduled to go into production later this year. --- rollingstone

  • Steven Tyler phoned into The Howard Stern Show to discuss his new solo country LP as well as to confirm the rumors that Aerosmith are planning a farewell tour in 2017. "I love this band, I really do, and I want to squash every thought that anybody might have about this … We're doing a farewell tour, but only because it's time. We've never done that," Tyler said. Stern, stunned by the news, made Tyler confirm whether Aerosmith were planning a farewell tour. "I think so, next year," the singer said. Asked whether guitarist Joe Perry is aware of Aerosmith's farewell plans, Tyler responded with a simple "Mmhmm." Tyler then poked fun at bands like the Who and Kiss, whose previous farewell tours lacked finality. While the details of the farewell tour likely haven't been ironed out yet, Tyler joked about the tour's length would last "probably forever." In May, Tyler revealed to Rolling Stone that he and bandmates were contemplating one last trek together. "I'm doing 30 [solo] shows from May until August," Tyler said. "And then in 2017 we go out with Aerosmith. We're probably doing a farewell tour. Look, there's two bands that still have the original members, us and the Stones. I'm grateful for that. Whether we do a farewell tour or go into the studio and do another record, I'm just excited about it." --- rollingstone

  • Blues lovers can sail to the Caribbean listening to music by Gregg Allman, Joe Bonamassa, vocalist Beth Hart, Mr. Sipp and other musicians during the Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea III cruise. The third annual blues cruise aboard the Norwegian Jade is scheduled to begin in Tampa, Fla., and sail to Costa Maya, Mexico, a port about 100 miles south of Playa del Carmen. Live music will be played on six stages on the ship; Bonamassa will perform three times during the cruise. Passengers will hear veteran and emerging artists -- there’s a stage dedicated to new talent called Ignite artists -- and meet them in small gatherings too. The cruise fest also raises money for music programs and students nationwide, a Keeping the Blues Alive Foundation statement says. Date: Feb. 6-10 (cabins go on sale June 23). Price: Starting at $999 per person, based on double occupancy, plus $275 for taxes and fees. It includes the cruise as well as performances and activities with musicians. Airfare to and from Florida is extra. --- LA Times

  • Last year, the world learned that Blink-182 frontman Tom DeLonge was going through a “friendly divorce” with bandmates Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus. Blink-182 have since moved on by recruiting Alkaline Trio singer Matt Skiba to fill DeLonge’s shoes and are set to release a new album titled California on July 1. Meanwhile, DeLonge has also been busy. In a new interview with Mic, DeLonge said he is creating a media franchise called Sekret Machines dedicated to documenting and promoting evidence for the existence of aliens through novels, documentaries and music from DeLonge’s other band, Angels and Airwaves. Due to the serious time commitment required to get the franchise up in the air, DeLonge said touring with his former band wasn’t an option. --- Paste
