Metallica planning to start work on new album
Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett says the band will start working
on material for a new album “in a couple of weeks.”
“When we start, that's going to be our main priority,” Hammett tells
Billboard, “and we're pretty excited about it because we've been
saying we need to start working on this album, but we've been
procrastinating greatly with it. We've pretty much come up with
every sort of excuse we can not to start work on the album, but
we've run out of excuses, so we pretty much have to start work on it
Some of the foot-dragging, Hammett says, is the idea of facing a
plethora of musical ideas the group has assembled.

Live: The Eagles Glide Through the Years at L.A. Forum Revival Show
They call it classic rock for a reason.
Last night (Jan. 15), Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh and the
Eagles glided through the band’s long history of music with an epic
three-hour show to commemorate the relaunch of legendary Los Angeles
concert venue, the Forum.
The time-worn harmonies and even the group’s signature melodic
guitar solos of yore are deeply ingrained in the subconscious of
anyone who’s spent any time with legacy rock radio.
From its launch in 1967 through the ‘90s, the L.A. Forum was the
city’s premiere arena, the longtime home to championship NBA
franchise the Lakers that also played host to an impressive list of
music titans, including Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana and Led

Greece at the city’s Lycabettus Theatre.
Set for release next Tuesday, January 21 in North America, the

Motorhead have released an Electronic Press Kit (EPK) for their
latest album, “Aftershock.”
The footage features music from the album as well as portions of
Lemmy’s fall 2013 interview on Rockline with Bob Coburn.
The bassist shares stories about the album, his days as a roadie for
Jimi Hendrix, and gives fans an update on his health at the time;
Lemmy’s issues caused the postponement of the band’s fall European
tour, which is now set to start February 13 in Glasgow, Scotland.
For a list of the rescheduled European tour dates,
“Aftershock” scored the band’s highest US chart position in
Motorhead’s career, debuting at No. 22 on the Billboard 200 with
opening week sales of 11,000 copies.
