  • Jimi Jamison, Lead Singer for Survivor, Dies at 63

    Image Courtesy Universal Music Group DistributionJimi Jamison, lead singer for the group Survivor, has died, according to a post on the band’s official Twitter account.

    The post reads, “Survivor is very shocked & saddened by the passing of our brother Jimi Jamison. Our thoughts, love & prayers go out to his friends & family.”

    Jamison’s booking manager, Sally Irwin, tells TMZ.com that the singer died Sunday night of a heart attack at the age of 63.

    Jamison was a member of the band Cobra in 1984 when he joined Survivor after the group’s lead singer, David Bickler, was forced to quit due to polyps on his vocal cords.  The change came after the band scored success with the tune “Eye of the Tiger,” which was featured in the 1982 movie Rocky 3.

    According to Rolling Stone, Jamison recorded three albums with Survivor. He was the lead singer on the songs “Burning Heart” from the movie Rocky 4 and “The Moment of Truth” from the film The Karate Kid.  The band also scored a hit with “Is This Love.”

    Jamison also co-wrote and recorded the song "I’m Always Here,” which became the theme song for the TV series Baywatch.

    Survivor broke up in 1989, but got back together in 1993 with Bickler as the lead singer.  The band became embroiled in legal tussles when Jamison toured under the Survivor name.  After a series of lawsuits, the parties eventually made amends and Survivor began touring with both Bickler and Jamison.

    According to the band’s official website, the group performed Saturday night in Morgan Hill, California.

  • Founding Jethro Tull Bassist Glenn Cornick Dies at 67

    Jethro Tull; Glenn Cornick, far right (Chrysalis Records Ltd.)Glenn Cornick, Jethro Tull's original bass player, died Thursday at his home in Hilo, Hawaii.  He was 67.  The British-born musician's family told The New York Times that the cause of death was congestive heart failure.

    Cornick appeared on Jethro Tull's first three studio albums, 1968's This Was, 1969's Stand Up and 1970's Benefit and played on the group's early tours.  He exited the band in 1971, after forming the group Wild Turkey and before Tull recorded of its classic 1971 album Aqualung.  Prior to Jethro Tull's formation, Cornick played with frontman Ian Anderson and the band's founding guitarist Mick Abrahams in the John Evan Band.

    After Wild Turkey disbanded in 1974, Cornick played in the short-lived group Paris with ex-Fleetwood Mac singer/guitarist Bob Welch.

    Anderson paid tribute to Cornick in a message posted on Jethro Tull's official website.  "Glenn was a man of great bonhomie and ready to befriend anyone -- especially fellow musicians, wrote the singer.  "Always cheerful, he brought to the early stage performances of Tull a lively bravado both as a personality and a musician…His background in the beat groups of the North of England and his broad knowledge of music were always helpful in establishing the arrangements of the early Tull."

    Anderson also noted that Cornick continued to play music with various groups throughout his life, and pointed out that he frequently took part in Tull fan conventions, "where he would join in with gusto to rekindle the musical moments of the early repertoire."

    Cornick is survived by his wife, Brigitte, and three children -- son Drew, daughter Molly and son Alex.

  • Kurt Cobain Loved Motley Crue, Says Vince Neil, and the Feeling Was Mutual

    Universal Music Group/Anton Corbijn; Tenth Street EntertainmentTo hear Vince Neil tell it, you'd never know that there was ever any hard feelings between heavy metal and grunge.

    The Mötley Crüe singer tells the U.K.'s Q magazine that he and his band mates weren't threatened by the early grunge movement; in fact, they were totally into it.  "We went on [MTV's] Headbanger's Ball and we'd had an early pressing of [Nirvana's] Nevermind, he says.  "We were talking about a bunch of upcoming bands and told people to check that album out."

    In addition, Neil slags metal rockers who bad-mouthed grunge.  "Only people whose careers were on the way out said that," he says.  "We supported that whole thing.  I don't know why people say grunge killed rock."

    Apparently, the love between Mötley Crüe and Nirvana was a two-way street.  Neil says, "I was talking to Courtney Love one time and she told me that one of Kurt [Cobain]'s favorite records was [Mötley Crüe's 1981 album] Too Fast for Love."

    The entire interview is available in the new print version of Q magazine.

  • Neil Young Recording with Orchestra for Project Reportedly Titled "Storytone"

    Image Courtesy of Danny ClinchAccording to multiple online reports, Neil Young has been working on a new music project that involves an orchestra.  German composer Chris Walden has revealed on his website that he contributed arrangements to a new album from the folk-rock great called Storytone, which is due out on November 4.

    A series of messages that appeared over the last couple of weeks on the Gina Zimmitti Music Contracting Facebook page offer some additional details about the sessions.  A photo posted on August 19 shows Walden conducting an orchestra at the Sony Pictures Scoring Stage in Culver City, California, while Young sings and veteran studio musician George Doering plays guitar.  A caption attached to the pic reads, "First day recording Chris Walden's fantastic arrangements for Neil Young."

    A message posted on August 23 shows another photo of Walden at work, this one taken at EastWest Studios in Los Angeles.  The caption for this pic reads, "2nd day of recording with Neil Young and producer Niko Bolas - this time for some awesomely loud big band arrangements by Chris Walden composer-arranger!"  Bolas has worked as an engineer and producer on numerous Young records over the years, including Landing on Water, Life, Freedom and Living with War.

    The most recent Facebook post regarding Young appeared on Thursday.  It shows a photo of Neil's LincVolt hybrid car and reveals that the rock legend was back at the Sony studio "for more days of recording with orchestra and arranger Michael Bearden."  Bearden collaborated with an impressive list of music stars over the years, including Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Sting, Carlos Santana, John Fogerty and many others.

    Back in March, Young told Billboard that he was considering making "a record with a full-blown orchestra, live -- a mono recording with one mic."  He added, "I want to do something like that where we really record what happened, with one point of view and the musicians moved closer and farther away, the way it was done in the past."

    Stay tuned as more information emerges about the upcoming album.

  • BRANGELINA IS MARRIED

    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have made it official! After years of will they or won't they speculation, it has been confirmed by a rep for the couple that they married on Saturday (August 23rd) at their home in France, Chateau Miraval in a small ceremony in front of family and friends.

    The spokesman revealed that Pax and Maddox walked Angelina down the aisle, Zahara and Vivienne threw flower petals, and Shiloh and Knox were the ring bearers.

    What They Wore:

    • Although Angelina's dress designer is not currently known, a source told E! News, "The gown was very traditional, but very Angie, it was comfortable but plain white floor-length antique lace and silk." The insider added, "The boys all wore tiny matching cream linen suits which were just like Brad's tux while the girls had each chosen a dress to match their own individual style and they had them specially made."

    The Ceremony:

    • "Brad and Angie said hand-written vows telling each other how much they love each other and their beautiful family and they both had tears in their eyes as did everyone else. It was short but loaded with meaning and it was a lovely way to start life in their new family home now that the building work is finally finished."

    The Party:

    • "They all went back into the main house into the 'Great Hall' and had a big celebration lunch with local hams, cheeses, freshly caught sea bass, Italian pastas and champagne, as well as Chateau Miraval rosé wine. There were three different types of cakes, all picked by the kids -- one was a strawberry ice cream one, another was a three chocolate gateau and a third had fresh cream and raspberries."

    The Honeymoon:

    • As for the honeymoon, another source said, "The honeymoon was a few days enjoying Miraval and how much space they have now. The kids went quad biking and swimming on the afternoon of the wedding and that night they all had pizza in the garden. The whole thing was very Brad and Angie. They're low key and much more about romantic gestures than they are about having a big, flashy multi-million dollar wedding."
    • Brad was photographed wearing his new wedding ring at a photo call for his new film Fury in the UK earlier this week.
    • Pitt proposed to his new bridge back in 2012 with a ring he designed with Robert Procop.

    HOLLYWOOD REACTS:

    • George Clooney told People, "How great is that? I’m really happy for Brad and Angie and their whole family."
    • Bella Thorne tweeted, "OMG Brad and Angelina got married <3 <3 <3 #MRANDMRSSMITH"
    • Michael Ian Black tweeted, "Now that Brad and Angelina are married, I can FINALLY start worrying about when they're going to get divorced."
    • Mia Farrow tweeted, "Congratulations Angie & Brad!!! Now let's work for the day when everyone can get married."
    • Sandra Bernhard tweeted, "although they both lied to me on separate occasions I congratulate both #angelina and #brad i'll never forget our special time together."

She wrote, "Just yesterday, the final day of the shoot, I felt an electric shock of energy --was it excitement that I was about to turn another year older? Was it nerves? Why did it feel like agony? I like getting older...I think. But this felt terrible. Does your butt quite suddenly (and painfully) deflate when you turn 27? Because mine hurt like hell...then my neck, back, legs and forehead. And oh my hands! They were shriveling. It felt like I was being shot by dozens of tiny invisible darts. I felt like the Wicked Witch, melting, melting, burning, melting. As it happens, I wasn't being greeted by the onset of spontaneous aging, but rather a full-fledged bee day. Attacked. All over. Everywhere." Blake continued, "It wasn't until I covered the counters in coordinating candy sprinkles that I stopped to acknowledge: my butt will deflate more and more, my hands will shrivel and permanently prune, but I will never, ever grow up. It took a swarm of bees to remind me that a b-day is nothing but a number. Each day I choose my age. Today it's 27, going on 2. How old will you bee today?"

  • REP SAYS REPORTS THAT TONY SOPRANO LIVED ARE FALSE

    The recent reports that attempted to clear up the ambiguous ending of The Sopranos are apparently inaccurate. A rep for the show's creator, David Chase, has released a statement claiming that the original article on Vox "misconstrued" his words when they quoted him as saying "Tony Soprano is not dead."

    The rep's statement reads, "A journalist for Vox misconstrued what David Chase said in their interview. To simply quote David as saying, 'Tony Soprano is not dead,' is inaccurate. There is a much larger context for that statement and as such, it is not true. As David Chase has said numerous times on the record, 'Whether Tony Soprano is alive or dead is not the point.' To continue to search for this answer is fruitless. The final scene of The Sopranos raises a spiritual question that has no right or wrong answer."

    • The final scene of the series feature Tony and his family sitting down in a restaurant as a number of suspicious people enter. The screen cuts to black before anything else happens.

  • KENDALL JENNER HAS DROPPED HER LAST NAME FOR WORK

    Kendall Jenner apparently wants to just be known as "Kendall" when it comes to her modeling work. According to People, the 18-year-old has dropped the Jenner and her agency is totally on board with it.

    The Society Management website lists the reality star by just her first name. Other big names at Society including Liu Wen, Lindsey Wixson, and Adriana Lima continue to be listed with both.

    • Kendall recently hinted at having issues with her family name to LOVE magazine saying, "People think that this success just came to me. But it didn't. What I have has almost worked against me. I had to work even harder to get where I wanted because people didn't take me seriously as a model...I went on castings and some people weren't feeling me because of my name. But it was great when people didn’t recognize me. I was like, 'Thank you. Please don't recognize me.'"
