AC/DC Singer Backs Dementia Charity Following Malcolm's Illness

(hennemusic) AC/DC singer Brian Johnson has initiated his support of UK dementia charity Sporting Memories Network following guitarist Malcolm Young's diagnosis of the illness. The Northern Echo reports Johnson called Sporting Memories 'out of the blue' after hearing about their projects with older people, especially men, who are suffering from depression and dementia by involving them in groups which improve their physical and mental well-being. "It's an absolutely amazing boost for a charity run by two people to receive a phone call from the singer of a group that has sold more than 200 million records worldwide," said Tony Jameson-Allen, the organization's director.

Roger Daltrey Calls Out This Generation's Music Scene

(Classic Rock) Roger Daltrey says the current music scene is missing a "sense of angst and purpose." The Who frontman adds that there hasn't been a proper musical movement since punk, even though the political landscape right now is primed for a protest scene. He tells The Mail On Sunday: "Here we are with the world in the state it is in, and we've got One Direction. Where are the artists writing with any real sense of angst and purpose? "There are no movements at the moment. We had mod and then there was punk, but it's so hard to start a movement now. Unless it's ISIS." Daltrey, 70, also discusses his relationship with guitarist Pete Townshend, who he describes as "a brother."

Cream Legend Jack Bruce Dead At 71

(hennemusic) Cream members Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker have paid tribute to bandmate Jack Bruce, who passed away Saturday at the age of 71. Bruce's family confirmed the news Saturday via his social media sites. "It is with great sadness that we, Jack's family, announce the passing of our beloved Jack: husband, father, granddad, and all round legend. The world of music will be a poorer place without him, but he lives on in his music and forever in our hearts." Bruce reportedly died from liver disease, which he was originally diagnosed with in 2003. The rocker underwent a transplant which almost proved to be a fatal at the time: his body initially rejected the new organ but Bruce did eventually recover. "He was a great musician and composer, and a tremendous inspiration to me," said Clapton. The guitarist posted an acoustic song in the bassist's honor, writing "For Jackā€¦". "We will always miss you JACK R.I.P.," posted Baker.

Ozzy Wants Original Lineup For Black Sabbath Farewell

(hennemusic) Ozzy Osbourne says that he hopes original Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward will return to the lineup for the band's final album and tour. Ward declined to participate in the reunion album - 2013's "13" - and tour over a contractual dispute; the group recorded the project with Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine while Ozzy's solo drummer, Tommy Clufetos, handled live dates for the tour. Ozzy tells Esquire: "What I'm really happy about is, if this is Black Sabbath's last hurrah, then we'll have ended it on an up note rather than when I left in 1979 and everybody was f***ed up on one thing or another and I was marked out as being the worst, you know. It ended on a bad note, so..." "The only thing sad about it is I hope Bill Ward can get his stuff together to do this because... one of the biggest things I'm proud of in my life was that Black Sabbath wasn't a band that was created by some business mogul in London or New York. That we were four guys who had a great idea and it worked from record one, and we still... Would you believe that it took 45 years to get our first number-one album in America? It was amazing to me." Asked if the band have started writing songs for the final Sabbath album, Ozzy says, "No. Although I texted [guitarist] Tony [Iommi] the other day. I said, 'It would be a great idea if you could send me some musical ideas so I can try and work some melodies around so we don't have to go searching for the song structure.' So I'm not starting from a cold block, you know?"
