Fleetwood Mac Have Begun Their 'Last Act'

(TeamRock Radio) Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsay Buckingham says that the band's reunion tour and upcoming album with Christine McVie will be a "beautiful way to wrap up this last act." She officially rejoined this year after retiring in 1998, and they're currently touring the world under the banner On With The Show. But Buckingham, who admits to initial doubts over her return, has given his strongest hint yet that Mac are considering winding down - and he's putting solo plans on hold until the completion of their first record since 2003. He tells PBS: "If you want to think of this as the beginning of the last act, that's how it feels. Christine really fills the gap of the polarity that might exist otherwise, and helps things breathe. "We got this call from Christine saying she wanted to come back. We were in the middle of touring, the four of us. My initial reaction was, 'Okay - we have to take this with baby steps.' The want to return doesn't mean you can repeat history; it doesn't mean all the tools, all the reference points are still there for it all to work."

AC/DC and U2 To Rock The Grammy Awards?

A report surfaced on Monday that suggested that AC/DC, U2 and Madonna have all signed on to perform during the 57th annual Grammy Awards on February 8th. There are several media outlets that report music industry site Hits Double Daily reported in their "rumor mill" section on Monday that the three artists have been booked for the awards show that will be taking place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and will be broadcast live on CBS. However, as of Monday night that report could not be found on the HDD website. The article reportedly said, "Nothing official yet, but the word from sources in inside the Recording Academy is that AC/DC, Madonna and U2 have been booked to perform on the Grammys," according to Trendio. Another report from Brave Words published this quote from the HDD report, "Each December, executive producer Ken Ehrlich makes an all-out effort to confirm a handful of performers for the show prior to the holiday break, during which it's difficult to get hold of pretty much anyone in a position of authority, and these three perennial draws are precisely the kind of act Ehrlich would typically approach."

Paul Stanley Recalls 'Cancer' Of KISS Reunion

(Classic Rock) KISS frontman Paul Stanley says the band's reunion with original members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss for 1998's Psycho Circus was such a nightmare that it almost put him off the idea of making another album. The project followed the successful 1996/97 reunion tour that delivered the first shows with the guitarist and drummer since 1979's Dynasty trek. The 13-month run saw the original Kiss lineup perform 192 dates in 25 countries on its way to grossing US$143.7 million and their most successful tour to date. Stanley has referenced the poor attitudes and work ethic of his former bandmates over the years while co-founder Gene Simmons says there's no chance of any future reunions with the pair despite their induction into the 2014 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. But Stanley reveals things were not well within the Kiss camp as they began work on their first album together since Dynasty (Criss did not perform but is credited on 1980's Unmasked). The frontman tells Chris Jericho's "Talk Is Jericho" podcast: "Everything was wrong. Psycho Circus was kind of like the result of a cancer that was building. We had gotten back together - we brought those guys back - and they were just completely apologetic and remorseful and thankful to be back." "And we never said they were gonna be equal partners. Why would they be equal partners? The band had existed without them. So, that being said, nobody should start a collection, although they might need it now." Stanley declares: "Those guys won the lottery twice. And when they came back, they were pretty broke. And we could take 'pretty' out of that. And yet it wasn't too long after things started to happen again that they started doing the same stuff. And it just became ugly and no fun." Stanley reveals some of the behind the scenes antics that he and Simmons were faced with from Criss and Frehley.
