Iggy Pop sang this tune some time ago,  perhaps that was the beggining of the conversations for Iggy N The Stooges New Album on that label ” Ready To Dye”.

Trevor Bolder : Spiders from Mars / Uriah Heep Reveals Cancer Battle

Back in January, Uriah Heep bassist Trevor Bolder disclosed that he’d be taking a break from the band to undergo surgery. At the time his illness had not been publicly confirmed but online rumors pointed towards a heart attack. In a recent interview Bolder sets the record straight, confirming that the operation was actually for cancer, not for a heart attack.

“I had pancreas cancer so I had to have that removed. Not the entire pancreas — but still, it was bad news,” Bolder explained to Classic Rock magazine about the harrowing experience. “They’ve cut out the bad bit. I’ve had a bit of chemo, got to have that, which I’m doing now, in case there’s anything hanging about,” he continued. “Once that’s done, I should be back to doing what I do for a living.”

Although Bolder admits that the life-altering news originally left him “shell-shocked,” he’s already moved past that phase and is focusing on his continuing recovery. He hopes that can get into his home studio soon and write some new songs. But for right now he’s taking it easy, noting, “I need to get my concentration back, to be honest, because I get tired real quick at the moment.”

So the good news is that Bolder is on the mend and well on his way to getting back on the stage. “In a couple of months I should be back to normal and doing roadwork with Uriah Heep,” said Bolder. “Originally, I was told it would be nine months. I’ve gone private now and they say it should be four months – as long as I take it steady.”

In addition to rejoining Uriah Heep, Bolder also mentioned that there’s a possible Spiders From Mars reunion show in the works, with a Christmas timeframe in mind.

So here’s to taking it steady and a speedy recovery for Trevor!

Is David Bowie The Next ‘X Factor’ Judge?

 

Forget Bieber-mania. It’s time for David Bowie mania. With the release of his new album ‘The Next Day‘ due next month, it seems as though everybody — including ‘X Factor‘ boss Simon Cowell — wants a piece of rock’s legendary chameleon.Cowell recently told the U.K.’s Daily Mail that he has extended an invite to Bowie to become an ‘X Factor’ judge but has yet to hear a response back. Asked why he would like Bowie to be a part of the program, Cowell sums up his thoughts rather succinctly:

“Why Bowie? He’s a legend. He’s a great songwriter, he has massive influence on music today and he’s 100 per cent credible. I’m a fan. Not just of his music but of him, the man. He’s cool. Most of us aren’t. Bowie is.” (For the record we’re against this, we’re very happy to have two of our nights every week free now that Steven Tyler is off ‘American Idol.’)

As reported by Ultimate Classic Rock earlier this week,  all signs look to David Bowie releasing the second single from his forthcoming record ‘The Next Day’ on February 26.

Steven Tyler de Aerosmith : Me aspiré la mitad de la coca de Perú

You can’t put a price of fun, as the old saying goes. However, in a new interview, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith believes he knows how much money he spent on cocaine in his wilder and crazier youth.

TNT is reporting that, during a feature on an upcoming Australian edition of ’60 Minutes’ the Aerosmith frontman was confronted with the rumor that, over the course of his career, he blew $20 million on blow. Tyler came back with a smaller figure.

“No, probably, realistically, 5 or 6, easy,” he said. “But it doesn’t matter. You also could say I snorted half of Peru, but, you know, it’s what we did.”

 

Of course, Tyler is specifically talking about how much he snorted. It is not known if he has ever partied with Rod Stewart, who took cocaine anally.

Australia’s ’60 Minutes’ has spent quite a bit of time with classic rock stars lately. Last week, they profiled Robert Plant, where he hinted at the possibility of a Led Zeppelin reunion in 2014.

Last year, Aerosmith appeared on the original American version of the popular long-running news program that exposed the band’s internal squabbles. Bassist Tom Hamilton blamed reporter Lara Logan’s cleavage.

“She had a very low-cut top on,” he said. “I’m like, ‘Okay, this is sort of, ‘Get the band nervous with your cleavage and make them say stuff.’ And if you go and watch the interview, you won’t see that. So I’m like, ‘Ahh, that’s how they do it.’ They show their boobs and get you to talk about stuff. And then, there you are…It works every time.”

RON WOOD’S EX-WIFE DISHES DIRT IN AUTOBIOGRAPHY

Ron and Jo Wood

It’s no secret that Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones has lived a true life of sex, drugs and rock n’ roll. But the true extent of his decadence is being revealed in a new tell-all memoir by his ex-wife, Jo Wood.

In the cleverly titled ‘Hey Jo,’ which is being published Thursday (Feb. 28) and excerpted in the Daily Mail, Wood goes into great detail about her former husband’s cocaine use, alcoholism and infidelity. She claims the couple had a lab set up in their Hollywood home, “complete with flasks, test tubes, glass plates and rubber tubing,” and their house became, as she puts it, “Freebase Central for much of celebrity L.A.”

Freebasing wasn’t Wood’s only method of taking cocaine. Last year, his longtime buddy and former Facesbandmate Rod Stewart revealed in his autobiography that the two used to take cocaine anally.

Jo stopped freebasing in early-1981, with Ronnie quitting a few years later. His drinking continued, however, and she describes how many times she caught him spending time with other women, only to be told that she was merely a “drinking buddy.”

But despite all their problems, she stayed with him because of the music. “I became so caught up in Ronnie’s illness that at times I felt like I was drowning in his alcoholism,” she writes. “It had reduced me to an insecure wreck. But the instant he got up on stage all was forgiven. It still gave me goose bumps. He was my guitar hero. Sometimes I’d stand in front of the stage, look up at him and think: ‘I’m married to a creative genius, there’s no doubt about it.’ In those moments I was so proud to be his wife that it seemed worth putting up with a bit of swearing.”

Ronnie most recently went to rehab in 2010, and he says he has been clean and sober ever since.

The couple divorced in 2009 after having first met in 1977. Last December, the 65-year old rock star married theater producer Sally Humphreys, who is 31 years younger than he is.

DAVID BOWIE : New song and video “Stars Are Out Tonight”



david bowie 2013

Bowie and Tilda Swinton play a nicely settled middle-aged couple whose comfortable existence is upended when a celebrity pair – Saskia De Brauw and Andrej Pejic, who’s made to look startlingly like a young Bowie – follow them home from the grocery store and take over their space, both physical and emotional. The couples’ roles slowly reverse, calling into question exactly what Swinton and Bowie’s characters mean at the market when they agree, “We have a nice life.”

The song starts with a slow, heavy backbeat and guttural guitar that dissolve into a propulsive bassline topped with shards of guitar and atmospheric synthesizers, for an effect reminiscent of vintage Bowie. It’s the second song the singer has released from his upcoming album The Next Day, which is due next month. The first tune, “Where Are We Now?” was moodier and more reflective, with a video that revisited some of the places the singer used to frequent in Berlin in the Seventies.
