  • Watch Paul Rodgers on Season Finale of "LaterÂ…With Jools Holland" on Thursday

    Image Courtesy of Paul MoscowPaul Rodgers will appear on the season finale of the popular BBC performance show Later…With Jools Holland, which will premiere in the U.S. on the Palladia channel tonight at 10 p.m. ET.  The famed frontman of Bad Company and Free will be featured performing songs from his latest album, The Royal Sessions, along with most of the respected Memphis studio musicians who accompanied him on the recording.

    Rodgers sang three tunes from The Royal Sessions during his Later appearance: covers of the Sam and Dave classic "I Thank You," Otis Redding's "That's How Strong My Love Is" and Albert King's "Down Don't Bother Me."  The singer's visit to the TV program was taped earlier this month shortly after he played a concert with the same Memphis musicians at London's Royal Albert Hall.  That show helped raise money for a charity Rodgers supports, the Willows Animal Sanctuary & Animal Assisted Therapy Unit in Scotland.

    In other news, Rodgers and some of his Royal Sessions collaborators are featured in a new episode of the public television series Front and Center that premiered on select stations this week.  The show still is scheduled to debut on various public TV stations in the coming weeks; visit FrontandCenter.com for a list of stations and air dates.

  • Rod Stewart's New Album Coming in Spring, May Feature Reggae, Ska & Celtic Sounds

    Credit: Penny LancasterRod Stewart's 2013 album Time was a success, and featured his first new, original songs in years.  Now Stewart says he's going to release another new album this spring, but what it's going to sound like may surprise you.

    Vegas Player magazine reports that the singer's forthcoming record will feature a lot of "Celtic melodies" -- perhaps reflecting his Scottish heritage -- and that he's also been experimenting with ska and reggae sounds.  "Believe it or not, I've got 10 tracks ready for the new album," he tells the magazine.  "I've got songs coming out of my bum at the moment," he says with a laugh.  "I just wish I could have had this 25 or 30 years ago.  I was enjoying myself too much then."

    Meanwhile, Rod is currently performing in Las Vegas at his residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, and he'll be back in January and February for more shows there before he heads to Australia on tour.  Asked how much longer he plans to record and tour, Stewart tells the magazine, "As long as the voice is there, I'll keep going.  I've been really lucky with my voice.  It's stayed in pretty good shape.  It gets a bit of a battering now and then -- four shows in six days -- but I look after it as if it were the crown jewels."

    Adds the 70-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, "It's all about being comfortable with what you do, who you are, what you wear, what you say and who you mix with.  I'm very comfortable in the suit I'm wearing at the moment.  When I do feel uncomfortable, I will step aside and there's no doubt that day will come. We all know nothing can last forever."

  • Billy Joel Honored with Gershwin Prize for Popular Song

    Kris Connor/Getty ImagesBilly Joel was honored Wednesday night in Washington, D.C. by the Library of Congress with the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.

    A number of artists were on hand at the Daughters of the American Revolution Constitution Hall to perform classics from the Billy Joel songbook. Tony Bennett crooned "New York State of Mind," Josh Groban sang out "She's Always a Woman," Gavin DeGraw performed "It's Still Rock & Roll to Me," and Boyz II Men delivered a rendition of "The Longest Time."

    The lineup also included John Mellencamp, LeAnn Rimes, and Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines.

    Paul McCartney, Barbra Streisand and James Taylor saluted Billy with pre-recorded messages.

    When it was time for Billy to accept his award, he joked that he was feeling a little bit "verklempt."

    After his speech, he entertained the audience with hits including "Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)." He was eventually joined by actor Kevin Spacey and the night's other performers for "Piano Man," with Spacey on vocals and harmonica.

    The event will premiere on PBS stations on January 2.

    The Gershwin Prize for Popular Song is a lifetime achievement honor named after songwriters George and Ira Gershwin. Past recipients include McCartney, Carole King and Stevie Wonder.

    Earlier this week, Billy was one of the recipients of the ASCAP Centennial Award at a New York City event staged by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.

  • Def Leppard's Joe Elliott Says Band Is "About Halfway" Finished with Next Album

    Press Here PublicityIt's been more than six years since Def Leppard released its last studio album, 2008's Songs from the Sparkle Lounge, but frontman Joe Elliott says the band is well on its way to finishing a new record.  Speaking at the recent Classic Rock Roll of Honour ceremony, Elliott revealed that the veteran British group is "about halfway through" with the album.

    "With a bit of luck, we should have it done by springtime," he told ABC News Radio, pointing out that he would be getting back to work on the project this month.

    Elliott said Def Leppard has written 15 songs for the album, and doesn't think he and his band mates will write any more for it, since "we're kinda happy with the [ones] we've got."

    He added, "It's a good record…It's the kind of record that we should be making at this stage of our career.  And that's about as much as I'm going to say about it."

    Elliott performed with the star-studded supergroup Kings of Chaos at the 2014 Classic Rock Roll of Honour, but he told ABC News Radio that he won't be joining the band when it heads to South Africa for three concerts in late November and early December.  He explained that the trek overlaps with a December U.K. tour he has lined up with his Down 'n' Outz side project.

    "I can't do both," he insisted.  "I've tried.  Doesn't work."

    Down 'n' Outz pays homage to the music of Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter and other 1970s glam-rock acts.

    In other Def Leppard news, guitarist Vivian Campbell recently underwent a stem cell transplant as he continues to battle lymphoma.  Last week, he posted a message on his Facebook page announcing that he'd returned home from the hospital.

    "So glad that's over," he wrote.  "Time to recover/recuperate and grow some hair…Thanks for all the love you've sent -- much appreciated!...Normal service will be resumed shortly."

  • Barry Manilow on Why He's Doing One Last Tour: "I Started to Miss It"

    ABC/Lou RoccoBarry Manilow has announced a new tour for 2015 called One Last Time!, with that tour name indicating that this will be the final time he'll hit the road.  The legendary singer, whose new album My Dream Duets debuted in the top 10 a few weeks ago, is no fan of the endless grind of touring, but he says he realized that he missed the thrill of performing live for fans.

    "You know, I took off for a year, and touring is not what I want to do anymore," he tells ABC News Radio.  "It's just, [I've] spent too many years in hotels."  However, he says this new tour, which kicks off in February, won't be as punishing as some he's done in the past, and it'll give him a chance to enjoy the one part of touring he doesn't mind.

    "It's not going to be a tour like going away for months at a time.  It's going to be one-nighters," he explains.  "And as I've started to perform these [new] songs live, I remember what it's like to stand up on a stage with an audience that's excited.  There's nothing like it!  And I started to miss it.  That's why I think I'll do it again."

    But instead of stopping touring altogether after this trek, why couldn't Manilow explore some sort of residency where he performs near his house once a month, like Billy Joel has done at New York's Madison Square Garden?  Barry says he's already been there, done that.

    "I did weekends in Vegas, and I flew to Vegas from my home in Palm Springs with the dogs and it was great," he tells ABC News Radio.  "It was just a great gig.  That's what Billy is getting: still stay home and not have to go out on the road."  

    The One Last Time! tour starts in Omaha, Nebraska, on February 11 and tickets go on sale to the general public on November 24.  As previously reported, they will start at $19.75 a piece, in honor of the year that Manilow's hit "Mandy" topped the charts.

  • Pink Floyd's "The Endless River" Debuts at #3 on "Billboard" 200 Chart

    Columbia RecordsPink Floyd's The Endless River nabbed the #1 spot on the U.K. chart earlier this week, but in the U.S., the group's first studio album in 20 years wasn't able to overcome the latest offerings by Taylor Swift and the Foo Fighters.  Swift's 1989 takes the top spot on the Billboard 200 for the third consecutive week after selling 320,000 copies, while the Foos' new album, Sonic Highways, debuts at #2 with 190,000 copies sold.

    Pink Floyd, meanwhile, bows at #3, as The Endless River moved 170,000 units.  The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's previous record, 1994's The Division Bell, was much more successful, debuting at #1 after notching sales of 475,000 in its first week of release.

    The Endless River is Pink Floyd's 10th studio effort overall to appear in the top 10 of the Billboard 200.  It also likely will be the band's last, as singer/guitarist David Gilmour has announced that The Endless River will be their final album.

  • ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons Performs at Unveiling of Vaclav Havel Statue at US Capitol

    Image Courtesy of Edouard CurchodZZ Top's Billy Gibbons brought some Texas blues to the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday when he performed at an unveiling ceremony for a bust of late Czech President Vaclav HavelThe Washington Post reports that event took place at the Capitol's Statuary Hall.

    Speaker of the House John Boehner introduced Gibbons, noting that he was chosen to take part in the event because Havel, who died in 2011 at the age of 75, loved American rock music.  The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, who dressed sharply in a sparkling jacket for the occasion, thanked the applauding crowd as he strapped on a cigar-box guitar and said, "It is indeed a great pleasure to have been allowed to accept this rather unusual, unexpected but splendid invitation honoring Vaclav Havel."

    Gibbons then explained that, after some thought, he'd chosen to play the blues standard "Baby Please Don't Go" because Havel had briefly considered leaving his home country rather than take on the responsibility of trying to lead it from communism toward the democratic state it is today.

    "Fortunately that was a very fleeting moment, which he returned and succeeded," noted the blues rocker.  Gibbons then proceeded to sing the tune with some modified lyrics.

    Besides Boehner, the unveiling ceremony was attended by a variety of other notable figures, including Havel's widow, Dagmar Havlova; Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka; House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi; and former secretary of state Madeleine Albright.

  • "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted" Singer Jimmy Ruffin Dead at 78

    Ron Howard/RedfernsJimmy Ruffin, the Motown crooner best known for his 1966 hit "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted," died Monday in a Las Vegas hospital.  He was 78.  The Detroit Free Press reports that the singer had been hospitalized in September, and developed pneumonia and other complications while being treated.

    Ruffin's daughter Philicia told the newspaper that an official cause of death hasn't been released.

    "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted" was Jimmy's biggest success, reaching #7 on the Billboard Hot 100.  Ruffin also broke into the top 20 in 1967 with "I've Passed This Way Before."  In addition, he scored a big comeback hit in 1980 with "Hold On (to My Love)," which peaked at #10.  The song was co-written and co-produced by The Bee Gees' Robin Gibb.

    Jimmy was the older brother of Temptations singer David Ruffin, who died in 1990 at the age of 50.  The siblings recorded an album together titled I Am My Brother's Keeper in 1970.

    "All of his songs were about love, so that spoke to the kind of spirited guy he was, and spiritual too," Philicia told the Free Press.  "He came up in the church, and that's where he started singing."

    Meanwhile, Motown founder Berry Gordy issued a statement paying homage to Jimmy, calling him "a phenomenal singer" and pointing out that he was "truly underrated because we were also fortunate to have his brother, David…who got so much acclaim."  Gordy also noted that "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted" was "one of the greatest songs put out by Motown and also one of my personal favorites.  He added, "He was a wonderful human being, quiet and unassuming, who touched many lives with his music."

    Philicia told the Detroit Free Press that funeral plans for her father haven't been set.

    HOLLYWOOD LOOKING FOR 'HUNGER GAMES' TO BOOST BOX OFFICE: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 comes out this Friday (November 21st) and Hollywood is hoping that the Jennifer Lawrence sci-fi sequel will give a lift to 2014's overall box office, which is running four percent behind last year's grosses. The third film in the Hunger Games franchise is expected to match or even beat the $150-plus million openings of the two earlier films in the series, which would make it the biggest opener of the year and the first franchise ever to deliver debuts that high with its first three movies. The movie is opening in 4,151 theaters, though none will be in price-pumping 3D or IMAX. (The Wrap)

    KEANU REEVES RETURNING TO SCI-FI IN NEW THRILLER: Keanu Reeves is in talks to star in a new action-thriller called The Panopticon, about a seemingly ordinary man who receives a mysterious package containing a pre-recorded message from himself. The message warns that the world is about to end and only he can save it. He must race against the clock to piece together the puzzle before time runs out for mankind. The movie would bring Reeves back to the sci-fi genre for the first time since 2008's The Day the Earth Stood Still. The actor is currently enjoying strong reviews for his revenge thriller John Wick, which fared well at the box office. (The Wrap)

    'TODAY SHOW' ROCKED BY REPORTS OF FIRINGS: The Today Show was the subject of intense rumors on Wednesday (November 17th) when an NBC source told Us Weekly that hosts Natalie Morales and Willie Geist "were recently told they were fired."

    STEPHEN COLBERT CONFIRMED TO HOST 'KENNEDY CENTER HONORS': Deadline reports that future Late Show host Stephen Colbert has been tapped by CBS to host the 37th annual Kennedy Center Honors, set to air on CBS on December 30th. Honors co-producer Michael Stevens said that Colbert was chosen because he’s a D.C. native "whose cultural influence extends nationwide" and whose comedic talents are "renowned." Colbert himself said in typically joking fashion, "I am stunned to be receiving a Kennedy Center Honor at such a young age. I thought it would be years before . . . I’m sorry. I’m being told I am HOSTING the Kennedy Center Honors. Oh . . . Well, I’m glad. That makes a lot more sense." This year’s actual recipients include singer Al Green, actor/filmmaker Tom Hanks, ballerina Patricia McBride, singer-songwriter Sting and comedienne Lily Tomlin.

    'ARROW' STAR BLASTS WARNER BROS. OVER 'FLASH' ANNOUNCEMENT: Arrow star Stephen Amell has criticized Warner Bros. for announcing Ezra Miller as the star of its Flash superhero movie on October 15th, just days after Grant Gustin debuted in the role on the CW's TV series based around the same DC Comics character. After The Flash debuted on October 7th to record ratings for the CW, Warner Bros. unveiled the names of 10 upcoming DC films, including Miller's standalone Flash movie in 2018. Amell said, "The way that Warner Bros. announced the slate of DC movies could have been handled better . . . I think that (Gustin) should have been given a wider berth than two episodes before another actor was announced to play his character. That's because I'm protective of Grant. And that's because I think that producing 23 episodes of superhero television is more difficult than producing a feature film." Amell added that he thought Miller would "do great" as the Flash and said he has no idea whether he will head to the big screen himself or if his Green Arrow character will be recast for the movies.

  • DON LEMON APOLOGIZES TO COSBY ACCUSER FOR INSENSITIVE RAPE COMMENT

    CNN's Don Lemon has apologized after suggesting that alleged Bill Cosby rape victim Joan Tarshis could have prevented the sexual assault. Tarshis revealed that Cosby forced her to perform oral sex on him, and Lemon asked her why she didn't bite him instead. He said to Tarshis:

    "I don’t mean to be crude, OK?" Joan Tarshis: "Yeah." Don Lemon: "Because I know some of you — and you said this last night, that he — you lied to him and said 'I have an infection, and if you rape me, or if you do — if you have intercourse with me, then you will probably get it and give it to your wife.'"

    • Cosby himself remained silent when asked about the allegations in a recent interview with NPR.
