  • Trial Date Set in Midnight Rider Manslaughter Case; Indicted Assistant Director Turns Herself In

    PMK-BNCThere are yet more new developments with regard to the legal drama stemming from the train accident that killed a camera assistant during the filming of the Gregg Allman biopic Midnight RiderDeadline.com reports that a March 9, 2015, trial date has been scheduled in the manslaughter and criminal-trespass case that's been brought against the four indicted filmmakers involved in the project.

    According to an order issued by Judge Anthony Harrison of Georgia's Wayne County Superior Court, pre-trial motions will be heard on February 12 and 13 of next year, with jury selection beginning on March 9.  All discovery evidence must be entered into the court by December 10.

    The indicted parties are the husband-and-wife director and producer team of Randall Miller and Jody Savin, executive producer Jay Sedrish and first assistant director Hillary Schwartz.  Schwartz became the most recent member of the Midnight Rider team to face charges when she was indicted on September 10.  She was on hand Tuesday for a status conference at the Wayne County Superior Court that all the lawyers for the indicted parties also attended.  Afterward, Schwartz -- accompanied by her lawyer -- walked to the adjacent Wayne County Jail Detention Center and turned herself in.

    If convicted on the manslaughter charge, Miller, Savin, Sedrash and Schwartz face a possible 10-year prison sentence, while the criminal trespass charge carries a potential one-year term.

    This past February 20, Sarah Jones, a 27-year-old camera assistant, was killed and several other crew members were injured by a train during the first day of filming on Midnight Rider.  The crew was filming a scene on a trestle bridge in Doctortown, Georgia, when the train barreled through.

  • The Kinks' Dave Davies Announces Full Details About Latest Solo Album, "Rippin' Up Time"

    Red River EntertainmentKinks lead guitarist Dave Davies has unveiled complete official details about his forthcoming solo album, Rippin' Up Time, which will be released October 28 on CD and will be available a week earlier as a digital download.  The collection features 10 original tunes and was co-produced by Davies and his friend David Nolte.

    Dave's son Russell Davies, a musician and producer in his own right, contributes vocals to two songs, "In the Old Days" and "Through My Window."  Dave and Russ previously worked together on the 2010 eletronica-influenced album Two Worlds.

    According to Dave, Rippin' Up Time focuses on "a man's reflections of the past, his fears, anxieties and optimism about the present and hopeful expectations about the future."

    The 67-year-old guitarist explains, "I had a lot of ideas in my head thinking about the past and how we started and The Kinks and my own life and the present and what's happening with my life now and concerns and worries, anxieties about the future."  He adds, "I suddenly had an image of all the times overlapping as if they're all in one place in my mind.  I thought I'd just write it from the point of view of a dream."

    You can check out the title track of the album now at Red River Entertainment's SoundCloud page.

    As previously announced, Davies has scheduled a series of fall U.S. tour dates to promote Rippin' Up Time.  The trek is mapped out from a November 11 show in Milwaukee through a November 28 concert in Englewood, New Jersey.

    Here is the complete track list for Rippin' Up Time:

    "Ripping Up Time"
    "Semblance of Sanity"
    "King of Karaoke"
    "Front Room"
    "Johnny Adams"
    "Nosey Neighbours"
    "Mindwash"
    "Between the Towers"
    "In the Old Days"
    "Through My Window"

  • Listen to Jackson Browne's New Album, "Standing in the Breach," Online Now

    Inside RecordingsJackson Browne is treating fans to a preview of his upcoming studio album, Standing in the Breach, currently streaming in its entirety over at USAToday.com.  The 10-song collection, which will be released next Tuesday, October 7, finds the 65-year-old singer/songwriter concerned, yet hopeful, about the state of the world.

    Browne tells USA Today that one the new tracks, "If I Could Be Anywhere," is a love song, but not in the traditional sense.  "[It's] a love song to the oceans, the environment, to future generations," he explains.  "It's the idea that there's a challenge that can only be met while we're here, both in the sense of being present and also that we're here at this moment in time."

    Meanwhile, Browne admits that the tune "Which Side Are You On?" bears some structural resemblance to Bob Dylan's spiritually-themed "Gotta Serve Somebody," but points out, "It's not a song about God; it's about your personal allegiances to the forces at play in our society."

    Standing in the Breach comes to a close with "Here," which Browne originally wrote for the 2009 Kevin Spacey film, Shrink.

    "It's about accepting the world that has changed in a fundamental way you almost cannot accept," Browne tells USA Today.  "It's about, in the end, finding a way of being in the world."

    Standing in the Breach is Jackson's 14th studio effort, and the follow-up to 2008's Time the Conqueror.  Browne recently launched a fall U.S. tour in support of the record that's mapped out through an October 18 show in Indianapolis.  His next date is scheduled for this Saturday in York, Pennsylvania.

  • KISS' Gene Simmons Featured on New Episode of AXS TV's "The Big Interview"

    Image Courtesy of A&E and AXS TVKISS star Gene Simmons is rarely at a loss for words, which makes him a perfect guest for AXS TV's The Big Interview.  In a new episode of the program premiering tonight at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on the high-def network, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and entrepreneur chats candidly and in detail about a variety of topics with famed newsman Dan Rather.

    Among the subjects Simmons discusses is his impoverished childhood in war-torn Israel, being abandoned by his father at the age of seven and his mother's experience as a survivor of Nazi concentration camps.  Gene also will chat about his high-profile romances with Cher and Diana Ross, his enduring yet bumpy relationship with wife Shannon Tweed, his many business ventures and, of course, his long tenure in his famous rock band.

    In a preview clip from the show, Simmons declares, "Personally, I haven't had a bad thing happen to me.  I haven't had a bad day in my life -- not since I came to the Promised Land.  And let me you something, everybody points to Israel…but the Promised Land is America."

    AXS TV executive Michele M. Dix says of the episode, "Gene Simmons has never been shy about delivering the straight truth as he sees it, and this episode of The Big Interview is no exception.  But what sets this particular segment apart is Dan Rather's unique ability to dive head-first into his subject, setting the rock star bravado aside and cutting to the core of the man underneath the makeup and the carefully cultivated 'Demon' persona."

  • Prince Releasing Two Albums Is "Genius," Says 3RDEYEGIRL Member

    Warner Bros.RecordsToday, Prince simultaneously releases two new albums: a solo effort titled Art Official Age and PlectrumElectrum, a collaboration with his band 3RDEYEGIRL.  Releasing two completely different albums at the same time is something maybe only a talent like Prince could pull off, says 3RDEYEGIRL guitarist Donna Grantis.

    "Well, it's incredible because I think no other artist has ever released two albums that are totally distinct bodies of work, and that's one of the things that's so incredible about Prince," Grantis tells ABC News Radio.  "So, Art Official Age is a solo album, a lot of funk, a lot of soul.  PlectrumElectrum is a live rock record with the four of us and I think that releasing those two albums is just such a statement to his genius."

    Altogether, Prince is giving fans a total of 25 new songs, but Grantis reveals that even with two albums to fill, it was difficult to narrow down the number of tunes to just 25.

    "I mean, he's so incredibly prolific, and, you know, to be honest, we've got way more songs than what's really being released," she says.  "So we had to pick and choose from a greater repertoire of music."

    Many of the songs were recorded during Prince's Hit & Run tours of the U.K. earlier this year, which saw him unexpectedly performing in small nightclubs.  However, drummer Hannah Ford tells ABC News Radio the band isn't sure when or if U.S. fans will get the same experience.

    "You know, we're not really sure yet.  Tour dates will definitely be released, I think later in the year," Ford says.  "We're really excited, though, to get out on the road and hoping for some more U.S dates, because we've done a lot overseas and we love it overseas, but it's also fun to do stuff at home too." 

    Here are the albums' track listings:

    Art Official Age

    "Art Official Cage"
    "Clouds"
    "Breakdown"
    "The Gold Standard"
    "U Know"

    "This Could Be Us"
    "What It Feels Like"

  • BRAD PITT EXPLAINS WHY HE TRIES TO KEEP A LOW PROFILE

    Brad Pitt doesn't need a social media presence to maintain his status as one of the biggest movie stars in the world. The Oscar-winner appears in the new issue of British GQ where he explains why he won't get on board with Twitter.

    Brad tells the magazine, "Listen, I see a benefit in it. You could, you know, combat the misconceptions of the misquotes immediately. And if I’d have had that in my younger days, I’d have used it...because I felt quite used, and completely misunderstood, and misread, and not given the benefit of the doubt. You know, I felt that a lot in my first years. I would have brought some logic to the table, and brought it immediately. But now, at this point, I don’t want to bother with it."

    • He also responds to George Clooney referring to him as "unreachable" saying, "Well, you know, George is extremely accessible. He’s one of our best representatives. He’s funny as sh*t. He’s a joy to be around. I guess maybe I’m more of a miserable bastard...I’m a bit of a loner you know? I’m more quiet by nature. And coming from, you know, hillbilly country, I’m probably more reserved."

  • DONALD TRUMP TRICKED ON TWITTER

    Donald Trump retweeted a photo of serial killers Fred and Rosemary West on Monday (September 29th) after a comedian named Philip Bradbury tricked him into it.

    Philip wrote, "Hi @realDonaldTrump. My parents who passed away always said you were big inspiration. Can you pls RT for their memory?" Trump obliged and upon realizing his mistake he wrote, "Some jerk fraudulently tweeted that his parents said I was a big inspiration to them pls RT-- out of kindness I retweeted. Maybe I'll sue.

    LINDSAY LOHAN RESPONDS TO PLAY CRITICISM: Lindsay Lohan is taking the negative criticism of her debut stage performance in Speed-the-Plow with a grain of a salt. She recently chatted with UK's Daily Mirror about her nerves during the first preview performance last week saying, "It could've been a disaster, but it wasn't by far...I could've not turned up. But of course I didn't; it's my show...Everyone is always going to be judgmental, no matter what. I respect people have an opinion, but I'm doing the best I can and will for the duration. I was nervous on the first night because I'd never done it before. But everyone working on the show has been really great...they've all been very kind, gracious and comforting." Ticket sales for the show have reportedly not met expectations and were even being offered at a discounted rate on Groupon.

    WALMART TRIES TO BLAME TRACY MORGAN FOR HIS INJURIES IN NJ CRASH: Walmart has filed a response to Tracy Morgan's lawsuit over the car accident between his tour bus and one of their truck drivers back in June. Tracy is suing Walmart for negligence because the driver allegedly had not slept for over 24 hours before the crash. Walmart is countering the suit by claiming the injuries sustained by Tracy and other passengers were the result of not wearing a seatbelt. The court documents state, "By failing to exercise ordinary care in making use of available seatbelts, upon information and belief, plaintiffs acted unreasonably and in disregard of plaintiffs' own best interests. The truck driver was charged with one count of death by auto and four counts of assault by auto a few days after the accident.

    JOHN CUSACK BASHES HOLLYWOOD: John Cusack may have had a successful film career since the 80s but he acknowledges that Hollywood has a dark side. While promoting his new film, Maps to the Stars, he told UK's The Guardian, "I got another 15, 20 years before they say I'm old. For women it's brutal. Bruce Wagner's thing about if you're 26, you're menopausal? It's only absurd because it's a little bit further than the truth. I have actress friends who are being put out to pasture at 29. They just want to open up another can of hot 22. It's becoming almost like kiddie porn. It's f***ing weird." John went on to say, "People would look after you when I was a kid. There were good people in the business. When I came to L.A. Rob Reiner said: 'Come stay at my house.' He taught me. I worked with Al Pacino. Pacino would talk to you and mentor you. Now it's different. The culture just eats young actors up and spits them out. It's a hard thing to survive without finding safe harbor. You can't make it up. It's a whorehouse and people go mad."

    FELICITY HUFFMAN REVEALS SECRET TO MARRIAGE: Felicity Huffman dropped by HuffPost Live on Monday (September 29th) where she revealed the key to making her marriage work with William H. Macy. She explained, "Once a week we do sit down and make sure we take half an hour -- each person gets 15 minutes -- just to talk, with no crosstalk. I talk, then you talk. You kind of just deeply check in with the other person. When you have 15 minutes to talk --which is endless, by the way, and if you want to sit there in silence you can -- but when you have 15 minutes to talk, you kind of actually see what's going on with the other person without any talk-back." Felicity and William have been married since 1997. They have two daughters.

    'MODERN FAMILY' DIRECTOR CALLS OUT DRUNK PASSENGER ON FLIGHT: Emmy-winning Modern Family editor/director Ryan Case live-tweeted a terrible flying experience on Sunday (September 28th) while sitting behind a drunk passenger. The recap went on for 67 tweets which began, "Sitting behind the worst person in the world. She was watching Hawaii 5.0 so loudly in her earphones that her seat mate asked her to turn it down. Worst move he ever made…She apologized in the loudest, drunkest voice ever ‘SORRY ITS MY 1ST TIME NOT IN 1ST CLASS' & hasn't stopped talking since." Ryan highlighted some of the woman's most laughable moments including bragging about knowing David Guetta and wondering if saying 'My Arab Friends' is racist. The whole ordeal came to end when the flight landed and cops came to meet her at the gate.
