The Who Reuniting With Kenney Jones

(Classic Rock) Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey of The Who will reunite with former drummer Kenney Jones for a cancer charity show next month. Jones - who replaced Keith Moon after his death in 1978 and remained behind the kit for a decade - is helping raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK, the organisation which offered him help while he fought the disease last year. They'll appear at his event, called Rock'n'Horsepower, at Hurtwood Park Polo Club in Ewhurst Green, Surrey on June 14. Mike Rutherford, John Lodge and Procul Harum are also on the bill. Jones says: "I'm really pleased to hear my friends and former bandmates Roger and Pete will be joining me on stage. The lineup is looking amazing - I hope you can all join us."

Geezer Butler Offers Reward To Catch Cat Killer

(Classic Rock) Black Sabbath bass player Geezer Butler is offering a reward for information on a "heinous" crime which saw 25 cats killed and left swinging from trees in New York. Butler has pledged $1000 to the reward fund on offer to anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible. The cats were put in plastic bags and left swinging from trees in Yonkers, New York. The total reward now stands at $25,000. In a statement released via the Westchester SPCA, Butler says: "It is so tragic that we have human beings among us that are capable of committing such a heinous and heartless crime. Surely there is someone out there that knows who has done this. Please do the right thing and come forward to get this coward off the street."

Original Judas Priest Guitarist Dies

(Classic Rock) Original Judas Priest singer Al Atkins has reported that co-founding guitarist Ernie Chataway has died. He was 62. The pair, along with bassist Bruno Stapenhill and drummer John Partridge, formed the band in 1969 - but the lineup only lasted for seven months. When Atkins fronted a new version of Priest in late 1970 none of his previous bandmates were there. Chataway went on to play with bands including Earth and Bullion, and was reported to be performing in and around his Worcester home until recently. Atkins says via his Facebook page: "Just heard the very sad news that Ernie passed away last night. He was a lovely bloke and a great guitarist and will be sadly missed. "I remember the first time we met at the auditions for a new guitarist for Judas Priest in 1969 - his looks reminded me of Marc Bolan. When he plugged in his guitar he totally blew us away, and made KK Downing look a complete amateur (who we'd auditioned earlier)."

Ozzy Osbourne Faces New Problem With Bats

(Classic Rock) Ozzy Osbourne once again has a problem with bats - after their presence in his countryside barn led to council bosses refusing his application to convert it into a home. The Black Sabbath frontman - who famously bit the head off a bat while onstage in 1982 - applied for permission to turn a building on his Buckinghamshire property into a two-bedroom house. But Chiltern District Council refused, saying there was evidence that bats, a protected species in the UK, live in the barn's rafters. The authority will not consider any application for the conversion until Ozzy can prove the animals' welfare will be protected.
