The longest-running, most successful partnership in the history of rock takes flight anew, as legendary Rock And Roll Hall of Fame inductees Carlos Santana and Clive Davis, Chief Creative Officer of Sony Music Entertainment, collaborate on the brand new concept album, GUITAR HEAVEN: THE GREATEST GUITAR CLASSICS OF ALL TIME, arriving in stores September 21st on Arista Records. The album was co-produced by Howard Benson, Matt Serletic, Carlos Santana and Clive Davis.

Working from their collective encyclopedic knowledge of rock, Carlos Santana and Clive Davis devised a list of guitar-centric titles – and then invited a Who’s Who of guest vocalists to perform on every track. Singers range from Chris Cornell (on Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love”), Pat Monahan (on Van Halen’s “Dance the Night Away”), Chester Bennington and Ray Manzarek (on The Doors’ “Riders on the Storm”), Rob Thomas (on Cream’s “Sunshine Of Your Love), Scott Weiland (on the Rolling Stones’ “Can’t You Hear Me Knockin’”), Chris Daughtry (on Def Leppard’s “Photograph”), Gavin Rossdale (on T. Rex’s “Bang A Gong”) to rapper Nas (on AC/DC’s “Back In Black”), veteran Joe Cocker (on Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing”), and more.

A very special dedication to George Harrison comes together on GUITAR HEAVEN…, with “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” on the album’s first single featuring singer india.arie and master cellist Yo-Yo Ma. “Listening to the song,” Olivia Harrison told Carlos, “it made me jump for joy and cry at the same time.” (Please see below for complete and deluxe edition track listing.)

Along with these stars, Carlos offers “supreme validation and compliment” to his full-time band for their work on GUITAR HEAVEN…, their first entire full-length studio album recording together. Band members who join him on the album include Dennis Chambers (drums), Benny Rietveld (bass), Karl Perrazo (timbales), Tommy Anthony (rhythm guitar), Freddie Ravel (keyboards), Andy Vargas (background vocals), and Raul Rekow (Congas). Bill Ortiz (trumpet) and Jeff Cressman (trombone) also appear on the record.

“To create these songs,” said Carlos, “it took an incredible amount of trust – from Howard Benson and Matt Serletic, and from, and all these incredible singers, all these incredible musicians, they had to trust me, and I trusted Clive, so it’s a chain reaction of love, because that’s the highest form of love that there is on this planet: Trust.”

“The cuts are special and the guest stars are special,” said Clive Davis. “But what is unique and why this album stands for more than just the individual songs or titles, is that they were indeed chosen because they’re guitar classics. And they celebrate the guitar because of the performance of Carlos Santana.”

GUITAR HEAVEN… is the first new studio album by Santana since their trilogy of consecutive blockbuster Arista releases: Supernatural (1999), Shaman (2002), and All That I Am (2005). All three albums were produced by Carlos Santana and Clive Davis. They represented a warm and well-received reunion with the executive who first signed Santana to Columbia Records (after seeing them at San Francisco’s Fillmore West over Christmas week, 1968, at Bill Graham’s request). Clive oversaw their formative years on the path to international superstardom starting in 1969, with the release of their debut album on August 18th, the Monday after their historic Saturday performance at the Woodstock Music & Art Fair.

Three decades later in 1999, Supernatural became – and remains – an unsurpassed industry phenom, 15-times RIAA platinum in the U.S. alone, nearly double that number of sales globally, the #6 best-selling album in Soundscan history. Supernatural spent 102 weeks on the Billboard chart including 12 weeks at #1. Its success was fueled by the #1 singles “Smooth” (co-written by and feat ur ing Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty) and “Maria Maria” (featur ing Product G&B).

Most significantly, Supernatural generated nine GRAMMY awards, an all-time record for a single album project, including Album Of the Year and Best Rock Album, as well as Record Of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Collaboration, all for “Smooth”; plus Best Pop Performance by a Duo/Group for “Maria Maria.” There were also premiere Latin GRAMMY Award wins (the show’s first year) for Record Of The Year and Best Rock Performance by a Duo/Group.

Supernatural was a hard act to follow – but 2002’s Shaman gave Santana a second consecutive #1 multi-platinum album, propelled by the GRAMMY-winning Top 5 single “The Game of Love” featuring Michelle Branch; and Top 10 “Why Don’t You and I” with Chad Kroeger of Nickelback. Third in this series of collaborative albums was 2005’s All That I Am, which entered Soundscan at #2, highlighted by the anthemic rocker “Just Feel Better,” featuring Steven Tyler of Aerosmith.

Ultimate Santana was released in 2007, the first career-spanning anthology to include touchstone tracks from the band’s earliest hitmaking years on Columbia Records (“Evil Ways,” “Black Magic Woman,” “Oye Como Va,” “Samba Pa Ti,” “Everybody’s Everything,” “No One To Depend On,” “Europa”) – alongside material from the three Arista albums, the groundbreaking collaborations plus new and previously unreleased tracks.

It has been more than 40 years since the original Santana Blues Band played its first shows at Bill Graham’s Fillmore West in San Francisco, opening for The Who in October 1967. Santana is unique among all the first generation Bay Area bands for sustaining its success on the charts and on the road as a sold-out stadium attraction. Their track record boasts 20 RIAA gold, platinum and multi-platinum albums (including their first 14 consecutive certifications) and lifetime sales of more than 90 million albums worldwide. GUITAR HEAVEN: THE GREATEST GUITAR CLASSICS OF ALL TIME carries the continuum to the next generation.

A&M/Octone recording group Hollywood Undead will give their fans something brand new to talk about on October 27th, when they release a two-disc CD/DVD consisting of 6 new studio recordings, 6 live recordings and a full 60 minute live performance on DVD. The new package dubbed Desperate Measures : CD/DVD is an eclectic mix of new studio recordings produced by Danny Lohner (Nine Inch Nails) and live recordings of fan favorites. In its 60th week on the Billboard 200 album chart, the debut album Swan Songs remains inside the Top 200, with total sales of more than 500,000 and average sales of 5-6,000 per week – testament to the band’s explosive headline performances and online marketing.

The new CD + DVD package includes three cover songs “Shout At The Devil” originally performed by Motley Crue, “Bad Town” originally performed by Operation Ivy and “Immigrant Song” originally performed by Led Zeppelin. The album will also include a remix version of “Everywhere I Go” the third single from the album. In addition, special exclusive live versions of “No. 5,” “Undead,” and other fan favorites will be included on both the CD and DVD configurations.

Hollywood Undead have concocted an explosive cocktail of hip hop, rock and metal, forging an alternative style that’s primed to blow the scene up. They craft incisive, sharp and sarcastic raps that slash the jugular of mainstream pop culture. They aren’t your standard rap or rock crew. They’re something new, dangerous, funny and alive. Deuce busts out the melodies. Johnny 3 Tears, J-Dog and Charlie Scene lead the lyrical charge, while Funny Man drops rhymes, and Da Kurlzz hypes the fray. Donning individual masks, Hollywood Undead possess a dark aesthetic that’s connected to their hometown’s depravity. Tracks like “No. 5″ dissect the frivolities of Hollywood with witty, catchy choruses. Album opener “Undead,” sets the tone, firing off a big melody and buoyant beats. Meanwhile, “Los Angeles” examines the town’s gritty edge. Rising to prominence via MySpace, these six masked hooligans stood at number one on the site’s music chart, leading to endless friend requests and plays. However, Hollywood Undead has got the gusto to be earth shattering far beyond cyberspace. They’re already knocking at your door, and they’re about to break it down.

Check out the album teaser video here (Windows Media), here (QuickTime), or here (YouTube).
Desperate Measures Disc One (CD) track list:
1. Dove and Grenade
2. Tear It Up
3. Shout At The Devil (originally performed by Motley Crue)

Brandon Flowers seems to have a knack for talking a lot and annoying people (like when he compared Sam’s Town to Springsteen’s music and called it “one of the best albums in the past twenty years”). Flowers recently spoke to NME.com about his desire for The Killers to be as popular in the US as they are in Britain. His biggest obstacle? The American music fan.

“We’ve been embraced in Britain in a way that I’ll never understand, and it’s such a wonderful thing,” he declared. “But over here [in America], people are still so obsessed with Led Zeppelin and Nirvana, those sorts of bands, that nobody else is allowed [to grow].”

He added: “It’s not just us; there are a lot of great bands that have been held down or confined by the influence of these people that we’ve put up on pedestals. I’m tired of it, you know? I just want to knock them all off! And people don’t like that attitude. It’s almost like they don’t believe that it’s possible that anybody else can be the real deal.

“It doesn’t matter how many great songs we write or how many great shows we play. But we’re slowly chipping away at it. With this last album ['Day And Age'], there’s been a noticeable shift but we’re still nowhere near where we are in Europe.”

Despite constant previous denials from the band, Led Zeppelin has confirmed that Alter Bridge’s Myles Kennedy will be the band’s new lead singer. A press conference has been scheduled for Friday morning at 10AM outside Royal Albert Hall where the band will hold an open to the public rehearsal.

Kennedy has already informed his current bandmates in Alter Bridge and has received their blessing. Kennedy has entertained the possibility of performing with both groups as Alter Bridge has been tapped to open Led Zeppelin’s world tour starting in July. There are rumors that Led Zeppelin will be a surprise headliner one night at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

If you were holding out for the Led Zeppelin reunion tour, you might not want to hear this but Jimmy Page’s manager, Peter Mensch, says the band will not tour or “continue in any form” with or without lead singer Robert Plant.

“Led Zeppelin are over.”

“If you didn’t see them in 2007 [at the London O2 Arena], you missed them. It’s done. I can’t be any clearer than that.”

“They tried out a few singers (to replace Plant), but no one worked out. That was it. The whole thing is completely over now. There are absolutely no plans for them to continue. Zero.”

“Frankly, I wish everybody would stop talking about it.”

I guess all those Alter Bridge fans are happy because they’re not losing their singer Myles Kennedy to Zep. This also means that Chris Cornell will continue to promote his crappy new solo album and tour with Timbaland.

05 Nov
2008

Chris Cornell has been touring with Timbaland behind new album Scream which no one likes except for middle-aged women (Even they must realize how bad this album is). Cornell was asked by MTV about singing for Led Zeppelin:

“I have not been approached so far to fill in for Robert Plant on the upcoming Zeppelin tour, but that isn’t to say I won’t be”
“I’ve heard that from about 200 people now, and it might be one of those situations where it’s just an online rumor or it might be true. But if you see anyone from Led Zeppelin around, let me know. I think I should actually fill in for Jimmy Page on the Robert Plant/Alison Krauss tour.”

Sucks. Soundgarden used to cover Led Zeppelin’s “Communication Breakdown” live and it wasn’t bad. The thing is, Cornell is only good live 50 percent of the time. If he plays two shows in your area, you should go to both just in case he sucks at one of them. The Audio Perv was lucky to see a truly legendary show at the Starland Ballroom in July of 07 where Cornell was AMAZING but had sucked the at one of the NYC shows before it.
