  • Jimi Hendrix Immortalized in Wax at Madame Tussauds in San Francisco

    Beck Diefenbach/Madame TussaudsJimi Hendrix fans can now take a selfie with the guitar god -- in wax-statue form, that is.

    A wax likeness of the legendary musician was unveiled Friday by his brother Leon Hendrix at Madame Tussauds San Francisco.  The ceremony coincided with Jimi Hendrix Day, honoring the 44th anniversary of his death, which occurred September 18, 1970.

    A team of 20 artists worked for more than three months to create the lifelike figure, with painstaking detail to Hendrix's guitar.  The figure got a thumb's up from Hendrix's brother, who praised the museum's work.

    "The representation and detail of his figure is uncanny," he said.  "It's an honor to see him immortalized in this fashion."

    Madame Tussauds San Francisco is in the city's Fisherman's Wharf district.

  • Neil Diamond to Give First Ever Performance in Brooklyn Hometown

    Frank Ockenfels/The Kennedy CenterIt's hard to believe, but in his five-decade career, Neil Diamond has never performed in his hometown of Brooklyn, NY.  All that will change, however, come September 29.

    On that day, Diamond will give a special performance at a "surprise location" in Brooklyn, NY at 6 p.m.  It's so secret, he's not even announcing the location until 8 a.m. that day, via his Twitter and Facebook accounts.  Tickets will then be available on a first-come, first-served basis

    The concert announcement comes on the heels of the news that Diamond will release a new album, Melody Road, Oct. 21. As previously reported, the 12-track collection is the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's first release for Capitol Records under a new deal. It'll arrive packaged with a 36-page book that includes the lyrics and chords to each tune.

  • "Queen Forever" to Include Freddie Mercury-Michael Jackson Duet

    Hollywood RecordsIn 1981, Queen frontman Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson came together in the studio for a once in a lifetime duet that inexplicably never saw the light of day.  That's about to change, however, when when Queen releases a new compilation, Queen Forever, on Nov. 10.

    The song, titled "There Must Be More to Life than This," was originally recorded for the band's Hot Space sessions, but the backing track was never completed.  Enter producer William Orbit, who was tasked with completing the job, an assignment he said was like opening a "a trove of delights provided by the greatest of musicians."

    In a statement released by the band, Orbit says, "Hearing Michael Jackson's vocals was stirring. So vivid, so cool, and poignant, it was like he was in the studio singing live. With Freddie's vocal solo on the mixing desk, my appreciation for his gift was taken to an even higher level."

    While Mercury released a more stripped down-version of "There Must Be More to Life than This" on his 1985 solo album, Orbit went in the opposite direction, adding full instrumentation to give the song more kick.

    In addition to "There Must Be More to Life than This," two other gems appear on the compilation.  There's "Love Kills," a Mercury song from the soundtrack to the 1984 restored version of the 1927 sci-fi film classic Metropolis, performed with American Idol alum Adam Lambert on Queen's summer tour; and "Let Me In Your Heart Again," another unfinished composition from the 1984 Queen album, The Works.

    Queen Forever will be available as a 20-track single CD and as an extended 36-track, two-CD set.  Here's the track listing:

  • Gordon Lightfoot Kicks Off New US Tour Tonight; Says His Performances Are "at a New Height"

    Linus RecordsCanadian folk-rock legend Gordon Lightfoot is heading south of the border for a fall U.S. tour that will see him visiting a variety of cities in the Western U.S.  The trek gets under way tonight in West Wendover, Nevada, and runs through an October 4 performance in Portland, Oregon.

    The lauded singer/songwriter tells ABC News Radio that, at the age of 75, he's enjoying playing concerts more than he ever has.  "I guess it's the quality that I'm seeing in our performances which we're achieving," he explains.  "You know, I'm at a new height in the way we perform the material."

    Lightfoot points out that since he's fulfilled all of his recording obligations, he now puts most of his creative attention toward his live show.  "[My band mates and I] begin to do research into the back end of the catalog and pull out a few gems that have been missed along the way and present those along with the regular material," he says, "and it makes for a pretty interesting show."

    Gordon's last album of original tunes, 2004's Harmony, was released more than 10 years ago, but don't expect to see new material soon.  Lightfoot says writing and recording a new studio effort isn't a priority.

    "Some of the responsibility that I've accrued in my career with my family obligations really is what slows me down in that regard," he explains.  "At the age that I'm at right now, since we're doing so well with our tour…I sometimes wonder if I really wanna do [a new album]."

    He adds, "I mess around with tunes, though.  I can still play with melodies.  I can still compose.  But to throw an album together, you know, it eats up a lot of time and you gotta think about the family."

    Lightfoot fans likely remember that the singer nearly died after suffering an aortic aneurysm in his abdomen in 2002, which sidelined him for two-and-a-half years.  He tells ABC News Radio that after going through that experience, "I can appreciate the fact that I'm recovered and I'm back working again.  I'm thankful."  

    After wrapping up his U.S. trek, Gordon will mount a major fall tour of his home country that kicks off October 21 in Nanaimo, British Columbia, and comes to a close with a November 26-29 stand at Toronto's famed Massey Hall.  Lightfoot also has lined up a trio of dates in Florida this coming February.

  • Stevie Nicks to Mount Show of Selfies...from the Seventies?

    Stevie Nicks (Courtesy of Artist's Personal Collection)You probably think of selfies as a modern phenomenon, but it turns out Stevie Nicks has been taking them for years.  Now, the singer is mounting an exhibition of her self-portraits, which she snapped with a Polaroid camera from 1975 to 1987.

    According to the New York Times, the show, called 24 Karat Gold -- which is also the name of the singer's new album -- is being curated by Eurythmics guitarist Dave Stewart, who produced her last solo record, In Your Dreams.  Nicks took the photos late at night, while at home and on tour because, as she tells the Times via her publicist, "I wanted to learn how to become a photographer."

    "I don't sleep at night, so I thought, 'Who am I going to ask to stay up all night [and take pictures of me], and then do a show tomorrow? So I'm not going to get Christine,'" she says, referring to her Fleetwood Mac band mate Christine McVie.  

    So Nicks took the photos herself, using a variety of props and costumes.  "I did everything," she tells the Times.  "I was the stylist, the makeup artist, the furniture mover, the lighting director -- it was my joy.  I was the model."

    Eventually, Nicks stopped taking the photos because, she says, "Polaroids were just almost impossible to use ... there was no more film and they all broke down."  The photos in the exhibit have never been seen before -- in fact, Nicks says she's kept them in shoeboxes all these years.  Many will also be featured in a book that's being released along with the deluxe version of her album.

    24 Karat Gold will open October 10 at a Manhattan art space called 201 Mulberry Street.  Two days later, the show will move about a half mile across town to the Morrison Hotel Gallery, which specializes in music photography, where it'll be on display for the rest of October.

    Nicks' album 24 Karat Gold -- Songs from the Vault will be in stores October 7.  Her tour with Fleetwood Mac begins September 30 in Minneapolis.

  • Led Zeppelin Argues That "Stairway" Lawsuit Should Be Moved to L.A. or Dismissed

    Soren Solkaer StarbirdThe members of Led Zeppelin say that the lawsuit filed against them earlier this year regarding their epic "Stairway to Heaven" should either be moved to a California court or dismissed completely.

    As previously reported, Francis Alexander Malofiy -- a Philadelphia-based attorney who represents late Spirit guitarist Randy California -- filed a copyright suit against Zeppelin on May 31, claiming that the opening of "Stairway" was cribbed from an obscure instrumental called "Taurus" from Spirit's 1968 debut.  At the time, Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page said, "This is ridiculous.  I have no further comment on the subject."

    Now, according to Business Week, Page and Zeppelin's other two surviving members -- singer Robert Plant and bassist John Paul Jones -- are arguing that the Philadelphia federal court where the lawsuit was filed is an inappropriate venue.  In a statement filed September 17, Page wrote, "I have not performed as part of the musical group known as Led Zeppelin in the state of Pennsylvania since 1985 ... That performance was without fee as one of many participants in a Live Aid charity concert."  Page, Plant, Jones and lawyers for their label, the Warner Music Group, have filed a motion to either dismiss the case or move it to U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, where they claim that many relevant records and possible witnesses exist.

    "Stairway to Heaven," though never released as a single, stands as perhaps Led Zeppelin's most popular song.  Coincidentally, the record it appeared on -- alternately known as Led Zeppelin IV and the untitled album -- is due to be reissued on October 28.

  • REPORT: DRAMA BEHIND THE SCENES AT 'THE VIEW' ALREADY

    Rumors are circulating that there is already drama behind the scenes of The View after less than a week with the new co-hosts. Sources tell Page Six that liberal Rosie O'Donnell and conservative Nicolle Wallace couldn't stop arguing even after the cameras stopped rolling.

    The fighting began on Tuesday's show (September 16th) when Nicolle said on-air that President Obama "doesn't love people" which did not go over well with Rosie. One insider said, "Rosie and Nicole were still going at it after the cameras stopped rolling. Executive producer Bill Wolff had to call them both in and order them to calm down." A rep for the network called the rumor "absurd" and an attempt to create controversy.

    • There are also rumors that ABC is having internal struggles over who decides the directed of the show. Another insider revealed, "ABC News head James Goldston and Daytime head Lisa Hackner are fighting over who gets control of The View. The situation has become so fraught that Disney/ABC Senior Vice President Abra Potkin had to step in. It is a monumental clash of egos."

  • JADA PINKETT TALKS DATE NIGHT WITH WILL SMITH

    When you're A-listers like Jada Pinkett and Will Smith, the world can be your oyster -- but sometimes they just want to hang in their backyard. Jada appears on the cover of Health magazine where she describes a date night with her hubby of nearly 17 years.

    She reveals, "A lot of times, we'll do it at the house because when we go out it can be a little hectic. So we have different places around our yard where we like to set up a little Arabian tent, pillows, wine and cheese, candlelight. Will likes really thought-out productions."

    • Jada previously addressed all of the rumors surrounding their marriage to Net-A-Porter last month saying, "The coping technique is knowing what the truth is -- there's no better technique. When you know that what's going on in your house is so the opposite of what's being said, and you also know that when there's mystery, people fill in the gaps, that's okay. And then you look back at it and look at how creative people can be, and it's kind of entertaining. We can laugh because it's so ridiculous."

He wrote, "We were on jetBlue flight 1416 to Austin from Long Beach. Our right engine exploded and our cabin filled with smoke. The oxygen masks did not deploy, but the brave stewardesses came around and manually deployed them. It was rough, the plane was rocking. I recited the Lord's Prayer as I held my son and my wife in my arms. The pilot came on the PA and let us know we lost the right engine. We were told to brace as we careened sharply back towards land. Over the PA, the pilot yelled 'Brace!' The stewardesses made it into a chant. I wrapped my arm around us. And we braced. Guided by our pilot, and I believe our guardian angels, we landed safely. We landed safely. It wasn't even all that rough, honestly. I just couldn't stop kissing my family and thanking my God. The doors were thrown open, once on the tarmac. The stewardesses yelled for us to get out and as far away from the airplane as possible. I grabbed my son and jumped down the inflated ramp, my wife following. We left all our personal effects onboard. Who cares. We were alive. We're safe. I'm grateful. From the bus, we all just followed one after another. I never felt so okay being a lemming." Since the incident, Jackson has been sharing photos of the aftermath and how the airline has been handling the whole situation. He also revealed that he got on another jetBlue flight to get his family to their final destination.
