Bob Seger Previews Stevie Ray Vaughan Tribute Song

(hennemusic) Bob Seger has released a behind the scenes preview of "Hey Gypsy", a track from his forthcoming album, "Ride Out", due October 14. "Ride Out" is Seger's his first studio album in 8 years, since 2006's "Face The Promise." "That's a song I wrote as a tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan, who I've always been a huge fan of," says Seger. "I remember the last time I saw Stevie: it was at an Eric Clapton concert and he traded solos with Eric on 'Before You Accuse Me', the old blues song - he did it for like 15 minutes - and it was probably my favorite guitar hero moment of all-time. They were playing so good." "So I went backstage," Seger continued. "I've known Stevie for a while and Eric… told him how much I loved it and then, unfortunately, three weeks later he died in a helicopter crash." "I really tried to write this song as if I was trying to channel Stevie," he added. "I was trying to write a song he might have written; that's the whole point of it."

AC/DC Member Misses Video Shoot

AC/DC filmed two new music videos this past weekend in London, but one member was reportedly missing from the second day of the video shoot that took place in front of fans on October 4th. Blogger Bob Fiddaman reports in a new article that drummer Phil Rudd was not at the shoot for a video for a future single release from AC/DC's new album, "Rock Or Bust". He writes, "The band were introduced and each member walked down to the small round stage. Unfortunately, AC/DC drummer, Phil Rudd, had been called away at the last minute, his place being filled by Bob Richards (Shogun, Adrian Smith Band The Wild Family, Man)." So far there has been no official explanation for Rudd's absence. Last month Rudd's 20-years in the making solo album 'Head Job' had a big first week of release in Australia, entering the ARIA album chart at number 22.
