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.
