Gregg Allman To Receive Living Legend Award

(TeamRock Radio) Gregg Allman is to receive the Living Legend award at the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour ceremony on Tuesday, November 4 at the Avalon in Hollywood. Previous recipients of the award include Black Sabbath, Jeff Beck, Lemmy, Jimmy Page and Alice Cooper. "I am so very honoured to be receiving this award from Classic Rock", says Allman. "The magazine is one of my favourites and they are always so generous to me and the Brothers." "Where can you start with Gregg Allman?", says Classic Rock editor Siân Llewellyn. "The rock'n'roll world would be a very different (and far lesser) place without him. As a founding member and guiding light of the Allman Brothers Band and a hugely influential solo artist, Gregg has touched the lives of rock fans all over the globe for over four decades. I'm thrilled that we can call him Classic Rock Magazine's Living Legend 2014."

Foreigner's Jones and Gramm Reuniting For New Music

(Classic Rock) Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones says it will be "fun" hooking up with the band's original frontman Lou Gramm later this year. They are teaming up for the first time in over a decade to write songs for each of their solo albums, which may surface in 2015. Jones tells Ultimate Classic Rock: "We want to delve back into some of the ideas we both knew we had. Then there's this little trove of goodies that Lou's got that I haven't heard. So we'll start basically just messing around with those ideas and maybe that will inspire us into something new." He adds: "I think we're both going into it quite openly - just let it come naturally. We have no specific plans to do anything more at the moment. But it will be fun and a great way of us reestablishing more contact with each other. And I'm very happy about that."

Motley Crue Plan Very Special Final Show

(hennemusic) Motley Crue singer Vince Neil has revealed the location of the band's final concert of their 2-year farewell tour. "Rumor has it, the last few shows are going to be Vegas and LA, because we wanted to end in 2016 in Los Angeles where we started," Neil tells Las Vegas Weekly. The tentative plan, according to Neil, is for the Crüe to play a "couple of nights" in Las Vegas at the tail end of 2015 before returning home to Los Angeles. "After New Year's, we'll do three nights at one of the arenas in LA," said Neil. "And then do a special show at the Whiskey a Go Go on our 35th anniversary." The iconic venue on the Sunset Strip was where the band got its start in 1981.

ELO Play First Show in 28 Years and May Continue

(Radio.com) Electric Light Orchestra, perhaps better known by their simple acronym ELO, returned to the stage for the fist time in 28 years Sunday night (Sept. 14) at BBC Radio 2's Festival In A Day in Hyde Park, London. While that is news in and of itself, it appears that songwriter and frontman Jeff Lynne had a good enough time to indicate that more may be in store for ELO. As reported by NME, Lynne gave the 50,000+ audience the thumbs up after a performance of set opener "All Over The World" (originally found on the 1980 Xanadu soundtrack), commenting, "Wow, fantastic. It's unbelievable this really. I haven't done anything like this for so long, I can't believe it." Later, Lynne was more revealing as to how the experience was going for him, noting, "I'll do this again." Of course, we don't know if that means sooner or later (obviously Coachella would be champing at the bit to get ELO on their poster), but this indication of eventually further ELO appearance is enough to make audiences on both sides of the Atlantic pretty excited.
