The first North American 2015 live date for AC/DC has been revealed with the announcement that the legendary hard rockers will be headlining this year's Coachella Festival.

The annual music festival is spread over two weekends, April 10-12 and April 17-19, with AC/DC headlining the Friday night slots, Jack White headlining on Saturday and rapper Drake leading the Sunday roster. As always, the festival will feature an eclectic lineup of artists. This year's lineup will include Steely Dan, Interpol, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah, Reverend Horton Heat, Alt-J, Belle and Sebastian, Bad Religion, Florence + the Machine, Ryan Adams, Fitz and the Tantrums, Brand New, Tyler the Creator and a lot more.

Kid Rock Says Rap-Rock 'Turned Out to Be Pretty Gay'

As Kid Rock promotes his upcoming album "First Kiss", he has also taken a critical look back at a musical movement that he helped popularize. While Rock rose to fame on the rap-rock wave of the late 1990s, he had managed to remain relevant by shifting musical gears, while many of his contemporaries have faded into obscurity. Rock addressed his current view of the rap-rock movement in a new op-ed that he wrote for England's Guardian newspaper. Here is an excerpt via Radio.com, "Rap-rock was what people wanted at the time, and they still love those songs at shows. But it turned into a lot of bulls- and it turned out to be pretty gay." He anticipated some blowback from the use of the term "gay" by writing, "If someone says you can't say 'gay' like that you tell them to go f- themselves. You're not going to get anything politically correct out of me."

Aerosmith Planning To Launch New Tour

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry reveals in a recent interview that the band are planning to hit the road this summer, but the group's plans for future music remain up in the air. When asked by Guitar International if he is planning a new solo album or an Aerosmith album next, Perry responded, "I'm really not sure, I feel that we just finished the last Aerosmith CD and I learned a lot about making that record as well as what our hard core fans are looking for. "I have about six songs for a solo project, as I'm always writing and working on new stuff. Whether it's a solo thing or an Aerosmith thing I'm not sure as we haven't talked about specifics. "The industry and audience have changed so much, plus Steven is doing a solo CD this spring. Sometimes I wonder if it worth doing an album any more or go more in the direction of this EP. We put it together in two and a half weeks; put it up online for people to buy the songs they like or all four. I was thinking why not put out a song at a time and when you get a bunch together, release them as a package. "We've certainly talked about the different options. From talking with the fans at the book signings, they were handing me vinyl instead of CDs to sign. Maybe going back and do vinyl and also release the songs online. We are wide open now and we'll decide when we start thinking about putting out new music. I know we are going back on the road this summer, so I'm not sure when we will have the time or be able to make time to get back into the studio. I know we plan on it, I just don't know when."
