  • Hot Tuna will be touring the east coast of the U.S. next month with both acoustic and electric shows. Jack Cassidy and Jorma Kaukonen will go out the first half of the month as a duo, playing a series of acoustic shows around New England. Jack and Jorma will then add Justin Gulp on drums for a series of electric shows in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Cassidy and Kaukonen, along with Paul Kantner and Joey Covington, started Hot Tuna as a side project in 1969 when Grace Slick had to take time off from Jefferson Airplane to have surgery for vocal nodes. They debuted with the 1970 live album Hot Tuna and have since released seven studio albums and over a dozen live sets. --- VVN
  • Chrissie Hynde will release a memoir this fall - Reckless: My Life as a Pretender publishes in the U.S. and abroad on September 8. Singer-songwriter Hynde will take readers through her life, from her 1950s childhood in Akron, Ohio to her college days at Kent State (including being on campus during the May 4, 1970 shooting of students by the National Guard)  to her move to London in the early 1970s, where she worked at Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood’s clothing store, Sex, and got to know Johnny Rotten and Sid Vicious. In 1978 she formed the Pretenders with James Honeyman-Scott, Peter Farndon and Martin Chambers. Hynde has two daughters, one with Kinks frontman Ray Davies and another with Simple Minds' Jim Kerr, who she was married to from 1984-1990.  --- THR

  • A new documentary film about late Pink Floyd member Syd Barrett is set to be released later in 2015. Barrett, who died in 2006, founded Pink Floyd with bass guitarist Roger Waters, drummer Nick Mason and keyboardist Rick Wright in 1965. He famously retreated from the media's spotlight after leaving the band in 1968. The film, titled 'Have You Got It?', is directed by Roddy Bogawa and aims to provide insight into the singer and guitarist's life and short musical career. It features interviews with the surviving members of the band. Its name comes from an unreleased Pink Floyd song. --- NME

  • Queen are now the latest rockers to get involved in the beer business. The group has just announced that, in honor of the 40th anniversary of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” it’s launching a new brew. Billboard reports that Queen Bohemian Lager is described as a “golden hoppy” beer, with an ABV of 4.7 percent. Keeping with its theme, it is brewed in Pilzen, which is located in the Bohemia region of the Czech Republic and where pilsner types of beer originated. The bottle will carry Queen’s crest, designed by Freddie Mercury, and the image from the cover of A Night at the Opera, the album that originally featured “Bohemian Rhapsody.” The beer will start hitting shelves in Europe this summer, with a worldwide release to follow. It is brewed by RnR Brew Ltd., with whom Queen previously teamed up for their Killer Queen vodka and Millionaire malbec wine last year.  --- ultimateclassicrock
