Jimmy Page Preparing For New Music and Live Return

(Gibson) Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page says he's gearing up to release new music and play live. In my dreams it would be with Led Zeppelin, but he's talking about his upcoming solo album. Talking to the press at the West London launch of the 40th anniversary deluxe reissue for "Physical Graffiti," Page said he was getting ready to hit the stage again. "How it starts off is, you have to play guitar and get match-fit first," Page told Rolling Stone. "So currently I'm in the process of doing that - but I'm also in the process of doing this (Zeppelin reissue series), too. It'll be closer to the end of the year rather than next month. I'm definitely warming up on the touchlines! "What I'm doing is something that's going to be quite different," he added. "It wouldn't be anything that hopefully you'd imagine I would do." On the subject of the Zeppelin reissues, Page said "the response has been phenomenal." "I knew all of the material was really great, but it was really important to set the scene right from the beginning and explain the fact that they were companion discs," he said. "It's been a real fun project to do because I know what's coming - and there's some great surprises."

AC/DC Reuniting With Chris Slade?

(TeamRock Radio) Former AC/DC drummer Chris Slade is rumored to be rejoining the band in place of wayward sticksman Phil Rudd. The band are due to play at the Grammy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles next week, but Rudd isn't allowed to leave New Zealand as a result of his court case over charges of threatening to kill and drug possession. Slade was set to make a publicity appearance at The Optometry Practice in California on Saturday, but cancelled at short notice. Dr Alex Robin Liu, who owns the establishment, said via Facebook: "There's actually big news regarding Slade and his career coming in several days, which is why he had to reschedule this event." Asked of the news was related to a band "spelt with four letters and a lightning bolt" Liu responds: "I am not totally sure to be honest with you. I am hoping for that!"

Original Santana Lineup Record 9 New Songs

(TeamRock Radio) The original Santana lineup have recorded nine tracks for their upcoming album, drummer Michael Shrieve has confirmed. The Rock And Roll Hall of Fame sticksman hooked up with the guitar icon again in 2013 to record fresh material along with guitarist Neal Schon, percussionist Mike Carabello and keyboardist Gregg Rolie for the record. It will be their first together since 1972's Santana III. He tells Hit Channel: "We have recorded nine tracks and we are getting together in April for a couple of weeks and we will be able to finish that up as well. I think that it sounds great. It's beautiful. It's like putting on a pair of old jeans." The drummer also says late Santana promoter Bill Graham, who died in 1991, was like a family member who pushed the band to success.
