Why Van Halen Didn't Fake New Live Album

(Classic Rock) Eddie Van Halen was happy to release the band's first live album with David Lee Roth complete with mistakes - because that's how the show was heard on the night. The guitar legend has previously discussed how Roth was left to choose from over 150 concert recordings before settling on the one made at Tokyo Dome in 2013. Now Van Halen tells Guitar World: That's also why we decided to keep the recording completely live. There are mistakes. "After it was mixed I listened to a few parts and went, Okay, I f***ed that up.' [laughs] But that's how it sounded that night, so we just left it. It's like a photograph of that evening, and we didn't Photoshop it. We did nothing. When you fix parts or mistakes, it's not a real live experience anymore."

Guns N' Roses Guitarist Addresses Break Up Speculation

(TeamRock Radio) Guns N' Roses guitarist DJ Ashba has shot down the notion that the band have split. Mainman Axl Rose fell silent after a residency in Las Vegas in May and June last year, while speculation remains that guitarist Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal has either left, or wants to leave. Rose last spoke out to condemn a rumor that he'd retired. Now Ashba addresses the current status of the band with the Las Vegas Sun: "I've got his back whenever he needs me. "Ever since I joined GNR six years ago, it's almost been nonstop touring. But we've kind of talked of more touring, and I'm looking at this more as a hiatus than the end." Last summer Axl Rose suggested the band were still looking at following up 2008 album Chinese Democracy.

AC/DC's Phil Rudd Pleads Guilty To Threatening to Kill, Drug Charges

AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd entered a guilty plea to charges of methamphetamine and cannabis possession and one count of threatening to kill in a New Zealand court on Tuesday, according to a local media report. New Zealand media outlet Stuff.co.nz reports that Rudd's attorney Craig Tuck said that he will seek a "discharge without conviction". Sentencing for the veteran drummer is scheduled for June 26th, according to the report. A second charge of threatening to kill has reportedly been dropped. The drummer was arrested following a police raid on his New Zealand home on November 6th of last year. He was originally charged with attempting to procure a murder, threatening to kill and possession of the drugs. Authorities quickly dropped the attempt to procure a murder charge. His arrest came as AC/DC prepared to launch a world tour in support of their "Rock Or Bust" album. They recruited former AC/DC drummer Chris Slade for the tour.
