Bob Seger Previews Stevie Ray Vaughan Tribute Song

(hennemusic) Bob Seger has released a behind the scenes preview of "Hey Gypsy", a track from his forthcoming album, "Ride Out", due October 14. "Ride Out" is Seger's his first studio album in 8 years, since 2006's "Face The Promise." "That's a song I wrote as a tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan, who I've always been a huge fan of," says Seger. "I remember the last time I saw Stevie: it was at an Eric Clapton concert and he traded solos with Eric on 'Before You Accuse Me', the old blues song - he did it for like 15 minutes - and it was probably my favorite guitar hero moment of all-time. They were playing so good." "So I went backstage," Seger continued. "I've known Stevie for a while and Eric… told him how much I loved it and then, unfortunately, three weeks later he died in a helicopter crash." "I really tried to write this song as if I was trying to channel Stevie," he added. "I was trying to write a song he might have written; that's the whole point of it."

AC/DC Member Misses Video Shoot

AC/DC filmed two new music videos this past weekend in London, but one member was reportedly missing from the second day of the video shoot that took place in front of fans on October 4th. Blogger Bob Fiddaman reports in a new article that drummer Phil Rudd was not at the shoot for a video for a future single release from AC/DC's new album, "Rock Or Bust". He writes, "The band were introduced and each member walked down to the small round stage. Unfortunately, AC/DC drummer, Phil Rudd, had been called away at the last minute, his place being filled by Bob Richards (Shogun, Adrian Smith Band The Wild Family, Man)." So far there has been no official explanation for Rudd's absence. Last month Rudd's 20-years in the making solo album 'Head Job' had a big first week of release in Australia, entering the ARIA album chart at number 22.

Rock Icon Paul Revere Dead at 76

Paul Revere, the iconic leader of the band Paul Revere and the Raiders, has died at the age of 76. A cause of death has not been revealed but Revere has reportedly been in poor health and he announced his retirement from the group in July. The band's official site broke the sad news to fans with a tribute letter to Revere singed by "Everyone who has ever met you." Here is part of the letter, "Dear Paul, Where do I begin? How do I tell you how much I love you and what you have meant to me? Have you ever met a person and felt like you've known them your entire life, sensed a familiarity and warmth? That's how I felt the very first time I met you, and the feeling only grew stronger the more I got to know you. "Like most people, my initial introduction to you was on television, radio and records, but none of those mediums gave me a real clue to the one-of-a-kind life force that was Paul Revere. "Sitting in an audience at my first Paul Revere and The Raiders concert introduced me to a larger-than-life dynamo of high-energy slapstick, outrageous and spontaneous humor and a genuine child-like joy. Everyone in attendance just knew that you MUST be a wonderful person offstage too, no doubt about it. "Meeting you after a show in the autograph line cemented the deal for everyone. Just as fun, funny and spontaneous as you were onstage, extremely nice and accommodating to everyone who waited in the long lines to meet you. Take a picture - 'SURE, take TWO!' Sign these 20 albums? 'Why NOT, you helped pay for my first house, and my first wife!' "Generous to a fault with your family, your friends and your band, there seemed to be no limit to your kindness. When you turned your attention towards someone, you made that person feel special and in your spotlight. You had a pet name for each person, and you never hesitated to tell them how exceptional they were. You appreciated the talent, beauty, skills and uniqueness you found in others, and you were never shy about telling them so. All the more reason for people to feel wonderful in your presence."
