Axl Rose Is Not Dead

(Radio.com) Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose would like you to know, he's alive and well and getting a good laugh at some recent headline-grabbing news pertaining to him reportedly being dead. On Wednesday (Dec. 4), a fake MSNBC report, designed to look like a real MSNBC report, made the rounds with the headline, "Sources: Guns N' Roses Frontman Axl Rose Found Dead in West Hollywood Home at Age 52." The story read, "Unconfirmed reports say Rose was found dead Tuesday late afternoon in his West Hollywood home after police were called around 3:30 pm for a welfare check." But, the Guns N' Roses frontman was doing just fine so he quickly let his many fans know, even having a little fun with his 862,000 Twitter followers, tweeting, "if I'm dead do I still have to pay taxes?" Later, Axl took to Facebook via his fan page ParadiseCity.com, to soothe his fans' worried minds by posting a picture (while feeling sarcastic) of his very alive self. "Ha! They say I'm dead - again' Wait, what? WTF? It's a hoax. Guys.

U2 Announce Arena Tour

(Radio.com) U2 just announced their tour plans for 2015, and this time around, they're scaling down to play arenas (their last tour was a stadium trek). The trek, called the iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour will take the band to nine cities in North America (and 19 worldwide) next year, with pairs of shows in each city. And they're going to make it worth your time (and money) to attend both, should you decide to do that. 'We are going to try to have a completely different feeling from night one to night two," Bono said in a statement on U2's website, 'and have some fun playing with the idea of innocence and experience. More to be revealed!" The Edge called in to KROQ's Kevin and Bean show on the day of the announcement (Dec. 3) to discuss the tour, as well as Bono's recent bicycle injury and recovery, which should be complete by the time the tour rolls around in May. 'Talking to Bono's doctors, they're very confident that he'll be up and about in time for the U2 tour," The Edge said. "From May, we're going to be hitting the road. Maybe that's not a good term right now [laughs]. We're doing shows in North America, Canada United States and Europe, 19 cities. It's the first time in a decade that we're going to be playing indoors. We decided after the size of the 360 outdoor production that we couldn't really go any bigger so we decided to take it smaller."

Rolling Stones' Bobby Keys Dead At 70

(Classic Rock) Bobby Keys, saxophonist with the Rolling Stones, has died at the age of 70. His death was confirmed by Michael Webb, keyboardist for his band Bobby Keys And The Suffering Bastards. He started working with the Rolling Stones in 1969 and continued until he was forced to stand down due to ill health in October - although at the time the Stones reported: "He's under doctor's orders to take it easy for the next month and hopes to see everyone soon." Keys, a Texan, became a full-time musician at the age of 15 and worked with Buddy Holly and Bobby Vee. He first met Mick Jagger and co in 1964 although he didn't play with them until five years later when he appeared on Let It Bleed. He played on every subsequent record until 1974's It's Only Rock And Roll, then returned from 1980's Emotional Rescue to 2005's A Bigger Bang. Other work included stints with Eric Clapton, John Lennon, George Harrison, B.B. King, Joe Cocker and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

AC/DC Detail Malcolm Young's Struggles With Dementia

(TeamRock Radio) AC/DC had to contain their reactions while Malcolm Young began to suffer with dementia during their Black Ice world tour, says frontman Brian Johnson. The band's mainman was forced to retire earlier this year as his condition deteriorated. Latest album Rock Or Bust, released on Monday, is their first without him. Angus Young recently revealed that his brother had begun experiencing problems before they decided to embark on the three-year tour in 2008, which became the fourth biggest-grossing of all time. At times he had to relearn his own riffs. Now Johnson tells the Guardian: "It was tough. But you couldn't say anything or do anything because it would have been like giving pity. You had to treat it like a normal day - so we did." Johnson adds: "God knows what went through his mind when he wasn't that well. He'd go on stage and… Can you imagine knowing you're not sure? You know where you are, but your mind's playing tricks. He was brilliant."
