Jon Bon Jovi Addresses Buffalo Bills Controversy

Bon Jovi frontman Jon Bon Jovi has publicly addressed the controversy surrounding the speculation that a Toronto-based investment group that he is a part of plans to move the Buffalo Bills if they purchase the NFL team. Rumors have been swirling that Bon Jovi's investment group planned to move the Buffalo Bills to Toronto. The team is for sale following the death the Buffalo Bills founder and owner Ralph Wilson. But Bon Jovi reassures fans that there are no plans to move the team. Bon Jovi wrote a letter for the Buffalo News addressing the rumors. He writes, "Recently, there has been a lot of speculation about the future of the Buffalo Bills and questions surrounding the ownership group of which I am a part. Until now, we have not said anything publicly out of respect for Mr. Wilson, his family and the process they are undertaking to identify the right group to carry the franchise forward. "However, there has been a lot of conjecture, so we think it's important to clarify our intentions to the fans of the team and people of Buffalo. Our objective is simple: to carry on the legacy of Ralph Wilson and make the Bills successful in Buffalo. "We are committed to working with the State, City, County and business community to identify the best possible site in the Buffalo area for a new stadium and to then develop and implement a plan to finance and build a state-of-the-art NFL stadium for the loyal Bills fans. "Being part of the NFL is something I have been working toward for a long time. Ten years ago, I started by taking an expansion Arena Football team, the Philadelphia Soul, from its inception to winning a championship in five years. I wanted to learn what it takes to build a successful football organization. I was involved in every aspect of that team from its beginning and I lived for and loved every moment. "My family and I are prepared to make this life-changing commitment to be part of the Bills. This is not a hobby or an acquisition. Building a winner on and off the field will be job one and I intend to spend as much time on the ground in Buffalo as needed to accomplish that goal. "I know how much the Bills mean to the people of this region. So I want you to hear this from me: I'm not risking it all to let you down. If we are given the chance to be the next owners of the Buffalo Bills, I promise you that we will bring the same passion that you do every Sunday, every day."

Led Zeppelin Reissuing IV and Houses of the Holy This Fall

(Radio.com) Led Zeppelin just announced the second phase of their reissue campaign, and up next will be deluxe reissues of the band's untitled fourth album (often referred to as "IV"), originally released in 1971, and the follow-up, 1973's Houses of the Holy. Both reissues will be available on Oct. 28. All of the reissues were supervised by Zeppelin's guitarist and producer Jimmy Page. As with the reissues of the first three albums, he worked to make sure that none of the bonus material has seen the light of day before. As Page told Radio.com, "I left no stone unturned. I was even checking out whatever had come out on bootleg that had leaked out of studios in the past - not by us, I might add. But I wanted to make sure that the material that I was going to present was not out already on bootleg." Zeppelin IV is the third best-selling album in U.S. history, and has been certified 23 times platinum. The LP features a number of classics, including "Rock and Roll," "Black Dog," "Misty Mountain Hop" and, of course, "Stairway to Heaven." The deluxe edition will include unreleased versions of every song heard on the original album including alternate mixes of "Misty Mountain Hop" and "Four Sticks," mixes of "The Battle Of Evermore" and "Going To California" with extra guitar and mandolin, and an alternate version of "Stairway To Heaven." The fact that this reissue has a release date indicates that the lawsuit that was filed against Led Zeppelin by the trust of late Spirit songwriter Randy California to prevent the re-release of "IV" has not deterred the band or their label, Rhino Records from moving forward with the reissue campaign. The 11-times-platinum Houses of the Holy reissue will include "rough and working mixes" of "The Ocean" and "Dancing Days," as well as a version of "The Rain Song" without the song's distinct piano. Each reissue will be available in several formats (as was the case for the reissues of the first three albums, which were released in June): as a single CD (with no bonus tracks), a deluxe double CD (containing all the bonus tracks), a single LP, a double LP, a digital download and a "super deluxe boxed set" including all of the above material on both CD and LP, with a hi-def audio download card, as well as a hard bound 80-page book with rare and previously unseen photos and memorabilia.
