Lemmy Statue To Be Erected In Staffordshire Hometown

Lemmy Statue To Be Erected In Staffordshire Hometown

A seven-foot bronze statue of the late Lemmy Kilmister, the founder of Motorhead, is set to be erected in his hometown in Staffordshire, England.

The sculpture, made from Staffordshire clay and designed by well known sculptor Andy Edwards, will be erected in Market Place in Burslem. Edwards created the world-famous Beatles statue on Liverpool's waterfront.

According to reports, the Stoke-on-Trent City Council has approved the proposal for the erection of the statue despite concerns from police about the potential for "good-natured but potentially incident generating attention."

The nod from the council came after Edwards agreed to increase the height of the statue's plinth from 2.5m to 3m, following police concerns.

The plinth will be made from sandstone and will include the Motohead logo as well as personal and career details about Lemmy.

The statue is estimated to cost about £50,000 and a fundraising campaign has been launched to raise the necessary funds. A total of £4,512 has reportedly been contributed to a Go Fund Me campaign.

Lemmy, who founded Motorhead in 1975, was its lead singer and bassist until he passed away in December 2015.

Tom Petty Tribute Album To Feature Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson & More Country Stars

Tom Petty Tribute Album To Feature Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson & More Country Stars

A new Tom Petty tribute album, titled Petty Country, which is set to arrive later this year on BMLG, will feature Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson and several other country stars.

Chris Stapleton, Marty Stuart, Margo Price, and former Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench are among the other acts that will feature on the upcoming tribute album.

"Petty's southern roots shined through across his songwriting and storytelling," said Dierk Bentley, whose cover of "American Girl" for the tribute album arrived last week. "He might not have ever been considered as country but you can't go into a bar in Nashville without hearing this song. It is one of the greatest songs in a life's work of great American songs."

"I'm convinced the second verse of this song is some of the best singing in the history of any rock or country band because his voice, there's so much angst," Bentley said about picking "American Girl." "You know, it's just his voice has that kind of brokenness to it to begin with, so it's just so, just the emotion behind his voice is just unparalleled."

Petty died at age 66 after an accidental overdose of prescribed medicines on Oct. 2, 2017.

Linkin Park Announce Greatest Hits Album, Share Previously Unreleased 'Friendly Fire'

Linkin Park have announced a new greatest hits album and shared one of its tracks - the previously unreleased "Friendly Fire" featuring late frontman Chester Bennington.

Papercuts (Singles Collection 2000-2023), a 20-track album that consists of greatest hits from the rock band's more than two decades-long career, is set for release on April 12 through Warner Records.

"Friendly Fire" was recorded in 2017 during the sessions for Linkin Park's seventh studio album, One More Light.

Speaking about the song, Linkin Park guitarist Brad Delson said, "When we started looking for an unreleased track to include on our greatest hits collection, I was blown away by the power of the song, the power of the storytelling, the power of the vocal, the sonic landscape and I actually thought that it was closer than maybe we had realized at the time."

"In the making of each Linkin Park album, I want to love and believe in each individual song completely," said Linkin Park frontman Mike Shinoda. "I hope that if any one track is heard on its own in the world, it is something I can feel proud of, and something that takes root inside the listener and becomes part of the energy that connects us."

Papercuts (Singles Collection 2000-2023) track list:

"It was the most enjoyable record I've ever been a part of," Caleb Followill says about the making of the album. "It's like we allowed ourselves to be musically vulnerable," Nathan Followill adds. "I love it when a rock band is not embarrassed to admit that every song doesn't have to be on 11."

Machine Gun Kelly Reveals 'Breakdown' In New Song 'Dont Let Me Go'

Machine Gun Kelly Reveals 'Breakdown' In New Song 'Dont Let Me Go'

Machine Gun Kelly's new song "Don't Let Me Go," which arrived recently along with a video, sees the singer revealing a "breakdown" was the reason behind him getting a massive blackout tattoo.

"Just like I wish they would understand me one time/ I had a breakdown and tatted my entire body except one line," MGK raps in the piano-laden track.

MGK also mentions that mental health problems, substance abuse, and a strained relationship with his late father as some of the issues that led to his downfall.

"Before my dad left to serve, he made sure I took on every quality I didn't want/ I was supposed to die at birth, gave me another chance, I f**ked it up, gave me another one/ I've been running from secrets I hid as a kid, I never confronted 'em," he raps about his past, alluding to abandonment from both his parents from a young age, before saying he still forgave his mother.

In the song, Kelly raps, "This psychiatrist keeps evaluating / How can I live with the fact / That my hand wasn't on her stomach when we lost the baby".

Referencing the miscarriage his fiancée Megan Fox suffered, MGK raps: "How can I live with the fact/ That my hand wasn't on her stomach when we lost the baby?/ I don't got no one to turn to/ Because everyone's dead in my life that was tryna raise me."

Liam Gallagher Says Brother Noel Turned Down Offer For Oasis 30th Anniversary Tour

Liam Gallaghar said in an interview with MOJO for the magazine's cover feature that his brother Noel Gallagher turned down an offer to reform Oasis for the forthcoming 30th anniversary of their debut album Definitely Maybe.

"Noel? He ain't f**king doing it," Liam told MOJO's Ted Kessler.

Noel recently suggested on Talksport Radio that all Liam had to do was call him up to see about healing the rift that's existed since Oasis split in 2009. But Liam claims an offer to reform was rejected by his older brother.

"I did call him! Well, my people called Noel's management team," reports Liam. "We put an offer on the table for an Oasis thing - because we got offered it - and he said no."

"It was a big tour, a lot of money. He turned it down. I get it, he's got a divorce going down. I'll do the Definitely Maybe thing and have a nice time without him," he added.

Sexual Assault Case Against Aerosmith's Steven Tyler Dismissed

Sexual Assault Case Against Aerosmith's Steven Tyler Dismissed

U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan has dismissed a sexual assault case filed against Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler by model Jeanne Bellino, ruling that Tyler's actions did not present "serious risk of physical injury" to the plaintiff.

The case pertains to an incident that allegedly took place in 1975, when Bellino was 17. She claimed in her lawsuit that Tyler "stuck his tongue down her throat, and put his hands upon her body, her breasts, her buttocks and her genitals" inside a New York phone booth. She also alleged that the singer rubbed his body on her and pretended to have sex with her while his bandmates and other members of their entourage watched and laughed.

Bellino added that another incident took place later that day in a hotel lobby, forcing her to leave the place.

Claiming that she suffered "great pain of mind and body" and "severe and permanent emotional distress" as a result of the incident, Bellino filed the case under New York City's Victim of Gender-Motivated Violence Protection Act, a law which extended the statute of limitations for certain alleged sexual assaults.

However, Kaplan said Bellino waited too long to sue the rock star and ruled that her accusations did not qualify under the law because Tyler's actions did not pose "serious risk of physical injury."

Tyler's lawyer David Long-Daniels told Reuters, "We agree with the judge's reasoning, and are grateful for this result on behalf of our client."

Bellino has until March 13 to amend and resubmit her case.

Noel Gallagher has teamed up with Gibson to release a limited, 20-unit '78 Les Paul Custom guitar series.

Twenty Noel Gallagher '78 Les Paul Custom guitars will only be available in-person to attendees on the official opening day of the new Gibson Garage London, on Saturday, February 24th.

Gallagher and Gibson will donate all profit from the sales of this special run of guitars to support the charity Teenage Cancer Trust.

The Noel Gallagher '78 Custom Les Paul guitars are inspired by the guitar originally given to Noel by Johnny Marr and was used extensively for both live performances and recording sessions with Oasis, most notably in the video for the song "Whatever."

These '78 Les Paul Custom guitars will feature a lightly aged Ebony finish by the Gibson Custom Shop Murphy Lab and each guitar is hand-signed by Noel Gallagher.

"The Les Paul Custom that Johnny gave me in 1994 was always one of my favourite guitars, and it carries a lot of history. The reissues are great, they feel almost identical. I am delighted they are being sold to support the Teenage Cancer Trust," says Gallagher.

"As Gibson continues the relationship with Noel Gallagher there is no better way to start 2024 than by supporting a truly amazing cause that is close to both our hearts and minds," says Lee Bartram, Head of Marketing, EU and UK, Gibson Brands. "We have worked closely with The Teenage Cancer Trust for many years, and it's always an honor and privilege to support them in raising much needed funds and awareness for the work they do."
