Queen Streaming Unreleased Freddie Mercury Song

(hennemusic) Queen are premiering an unreleased song, "Let Me In Your Heart Again (William Orbit Mix)" featuring the late Freddie Mercury, as part of a new AIDS awareness campaign spearheaded by Coca-Cola and (RED). Starting November 3rd through World AIDS Day on December 1st, Coca-Cola, in partnership with (RED) - the AIDS organization founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver - is focused on a global campaign called "Share the Sound of an AIDS-Free Generation." An array of artists including Queen, Bono, Aloe Blacc, OneRepublic, Avicii and Wyclef Jean are lending their voices, offering special experiences and unreleased songs that will help rally and engage the world to take action and donate to (RED). "It's been 23 years since the world lost our beloved Freddie Mercury," says Queen guitarist Brian May. "We've made extraordinary progress in the fight against AIDS in that time. But we cannot simply rest on the fact that the treatment is available. We must ensure that it is provided. Roger and I are proud to lend this rediscovered song to the (Coca-Cola) RED campaign, in the hope that Freddie's powerful voice can inspire the world yet again."

Gregg Allman Dropped From Biopic Death Lawsuit

(Radio.com) Gregg Allman has been dropped from a civil lawsuit stemming from the death of Sarah Jones, a 27-year-old camera assistant who died on the set of Midnight Rider, the Gregg Allman biopic, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The incident took place on Feb. 20 of this year, while the crew was shooting a sequence on railroad tracks. Seven others were also injured in the accident. Production of the film shut down shortly afterward. Allman, executive producer Michael Lehman and the film's distributor Open Road Films were also dropped from the civil lawsuit, according to an announcement by the Jones' attorney, Jeff Harris. "This firm was hired by Richard and Elizabeth Jones to find out exactly what happened to their daughter, what decisions were made that led to that fateful day and to determine, and ultimately hold accountable, those who were involved," Harris wrote in a statement. "After reviewing the many thousands of pages of documents, and other information we have obtained through the legal discovery process, it is clear that Mr. Allman and Mr. Lehman had no involvement in any of the decisions that resulted in Sarah's death. "Our investigation has also shown that, in this case, Open Road Films was not directly involved in the poor decisions that led to this horrific event and the tragic loss of Sarah's life. As a result, we are dismissing all claims against the three parties."

Sammy Hagar Open To Van Halen Reunion Including David Lee Roth

(hennemusic) Sammy Hagar says that he is open to the idea of a Van Halen reunion tour that would also feature David Lee Roth but he would only do it for the fans and the situation would have to be right. "You mean that [2002] Sam and Dave tour with Van Halen as the backup band? Yeah, that would be a dream scenario for me too, but it would be the same old thing," Hagar tells Rolling Stone. "On the [2004] reunion tour, we traveled on separate planes. You check into the hotel at different times so you don't even see them [the Van Halen brothers] in the lobby. You don't really see them until the gig. I could deal with Dave on that level. [Huge laugh.] But he'd have to be cool." In the summer of 2002, Hagar and Roth teamed up in the "Song For Song, The Heavyweight Champs of Rock and Roll" tour, also known by fans as the 'Sans-Halen' or 'Sam & Dave' Tour. The shows featured the singer's swapping headline status at each date on the run, while maintaining their distance from each other. "A tour like that [with Van Halen] would be the coolest thing for the fans ever," continued Hagar. "I would do it for the fans. I wouldn't do it just for the money. Everybody would have to be cool and have their hearts in it. I hate to give out bad news, but I just doubt it'll ever happen. I would like to just see [bassist] Mike [Anthony] back in the band with Dave. If that works, all right, I'll come in next." Asked if their might a scenario where Hagar would regroup with Van Halen only, the rocker says "I would play with anybody that loves me and that I love. That would include Van Halen, but the love's not there right now. I do love those guys. We really bumped heads on the last tour [in 2004.] Anyone that saw that last tour or read my book knows that I'm not gonna take any blame 'cause there's no blame to give me. I went out and did my job probably better than anyone else in that band. Anyone that saw the show, I think, would agree with me." "That tour was just a mess and I would never go into a mess like that again," he added.
