Rolling Stones To Announce Tour This Week?

This weekend The Rolling Stones started hinting at a big announcement via teases posted to their Facebook page with the hashtag #SatisfactionThursday, leading many to believe that the group will be announcing their North American summer tour this Thursday. The new online teases come after guitarist Ronnie Wood said in two recent interviews that the band was planning to launch a North American tour this summer. Over the weekend, the band made several Facebook postings including the first post that featured a video showing the members rehearsing while their classic song "Miss You" plays in the background, according to ABC. The video and subsequent posts directed fans to a website called JustAKissAway.rocks that includes the band's lips and tongue logo above the words "Get What You Need" and the #SatisfactionThursday hashtag, as well as a signup box for email alerts asking for fan's email address and zip code. As we previously reported, Ronnie Wood broke the news of the Rolling Stones tour plans in two recent interviews. Woods told Radio.com, "We're coming to North America in the summer." Wood also confirmed the plans in a separate interview with GMI Rock News. "Oh yeah, we had a meeting in New York with the boys, and we're gonna come to North America again in the summer."

Gregg Allman Biopic Train Accident Video Surfaces

(Radio.com) Video from the tragic train accident that occurred during the filming of the Gregg Allman biopic 'Midnight Rider' has surfaced. The story of the ill-fated biopic has been well-publicized, as an accident while filming resulted in the death of camera assistant Sarah Elizabeth Jones. Subsequent lawsuits were filed by her family against everyone involved, with many of them settling out of court. Now The Daily Mail (via Ultimate Classic Rock) has posted startling video of the events. None of the actual impact is shown (thankfully), but in one clip you can see the cast and crew rushing to move away from the train as it approaches. While the footage does not show anyone being hit by the train, the clip could be considered graphic for some audiences. A second video has also emerged from the point of view of the train. Through it you get an idea of how fast the thing was moving (55 mph) and just how little of a chance the 27-year-old Jones stood in the impact Randall Miller, the director of Midnight Rider, will serve two years in prison for involuntary manslaughter stemming from the incident, which also injured six other people in February of 2014. Miller did not receive the necessary permission to film on that location, and as a result put his whole crew in danger.

Previously Unheard Jimi Hendrix Song Now Streaming Online

(Classic Rock) One of Jimi Hendrix's earliest recordings has been streamed ahead of an album containing his work with Curtis Knight & The Squires. Station Break is an instrumental piece, recorded in 1965 before the axe icon established his place in musical history. It's taken from You Can't Use My Name: The RSVO/PPX Sessions, which is released on March 24. Veteran engineer Eddie Kramer cleaned up the original tapes, saying: "We've taken every performance as far back as we could do in terms of source, stripped them back, remixed them and made the best representation of these recordings." Hendrix said in 1967 of his time with Knight: "I was a backing musician playing guitar. I was always kept in the background - but I was thinking all the time about what I wanted to do."
