Peter Buck Says R.E.M.'s Success 'Took Away Some Of The Pleasure' Of Being In The Band

Peter Buck Says R.E.M.'s Success 'Took Away Some Of The Pleasure' Of Being In The Band

Former R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck says that the band's huge success in the 1990s "took away some of the pleasure" of being in the band.

During a recent interview with Classic Rock magazine, Buck told Rob Hughes, "When the non-musical stuff became so intense, it took away some of the pleasure for me. It's just the stuff where you kind of wake up and go: 'God, I don't really want to have my picture taken today. And I don't really want to pretend to be an actor in some video where I can't act.'"

"I loved playing Glastonbury and playing in front of lots of people and selling multiple millions of records," Buck continued, "but it was never the reason I did it. And when we got to the point where we decided that it was the end, it felt like a great shared experience. I wouldn't change it, but I'm not gonna go back to it."

R.E.M. disbanded amicably in September 2011, with former members having continued with various musical projects. Several live and archival albums have since been released.

Buck argued R.E.M.'s career ended with two "really strong" albums, 2008's Accelerate and 2011's Collapse Into Now.

"But I just felt like, no matter how good our last record was, it wasn't really our time any more," he said. "And that's fair, I understand that. . when it was over I didn't have a lot of interest in pursuing that type of largeness again."

He concluded, "[A]ll I really want to do is write songs, play them and record them."

Blur's Dave Rowntree Shares Video For Solo Single 'Tape Measure'

Blur's Dave Rowntree Shares Video For Solo Single 'Tape Measure'

Blur drummer Dave Rowntree recently shared a video for his latest solo single, "Tape Measure."

"Tape Measure" is a track from Rowntree's upcoming solo debut album, Radio Songs, which is set to drop on January 20, 2023.

"Anxiety - an unpleasant emotion of inner turmoil and dread," Rowntree said. "We're fundamentally herd animals, whose main defensive tactic is running away and hiding. We've no sharp claws or teeth to fight with. So we're over sensitised to danger."

"We see shapes in the shadows, faces in the fire. Disaster always lurks on the grey edges of our consciousness," he added. "On the upside, come the zombie apocalypse, we anxious people will already be in hiding, leaving all you smug normies to have your brains eaten."

Rowntree previously released "London Bridge," "Devil's Island," and "HK" from the album.

Metallica Announce New Album '72 Seasons'

Metallica Announce New Album '72 Seasons'

Metal legends Metallica have announced that their new album is coming out next year.

The 12-track album, 72 Seasons, totaling over 77 minutes, will be released on April 14, 2023.

Explaining the special meaning of the title, Metallica founding member James Hetfield said, "72 seasons. The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves. The concept that we were told 'who we are' by our parents. A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are."

"I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is reenactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry," he added.

Produced by Greg Fidelman, along with Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, 72 Seasons is available for pre-order now on CD, 2LP 140g black vinyl, two different colored vinyl variations, and digitally in the Met Store at https://www.metallica.com/store/72-seasons/.

Every pre-order will receive a digital instant grat track of the first song, "Lux Æterna." Its Tim Saccenti-directed video can be checked out on Metallilca's YouTube channel.

Def Leppard Share Live Stadium Tour Video For 'Kick'

Def Leppard Share Live Stadium Tour Video For 'Kick'

Rock legends Def Leppard recently shared the official live "Stadium Tour" video for the song "Kick."

The clip was filmed during the band's summer 2022 "The Stadium Tour" with Mötley Crüe, Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts.

"Kick" was the first single from Def Leppard's latest album, Diamond Star Halos, which arrived in May via UMe.

"It's a stadium anthem, and we were about to go into stadiums," singer Joe Elliott said about "Kick". "We didn't write it for that reason, but Phil's always trying to write the next 'Sugar' or 'We Will Rock You' or 'I Love Rock 'N' Roll'. We all are, but he actually came up with one, and it's, like, 'Yeah, we've got to do that,' so now it's a 15-song record."

"The Stadium Tour" was originally scheduled to take place in the summer of 2020 but ended up being pushed back to 2021 and then to 2022 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Def Leppard are now set to perform across Latin America and Europe in 2023, with dates kicking off February 18 in Mexico City, Mexico.

Roger Waters Shares 'Darker' Version Of 'Comfortably Numb'

Roger Waters Shares 'Darker' Version Of 'Comfortably Numb'

Roger Waters recently released a new version of the classic Pink Floyd song "Comfortably Numb" via Sony Music.

The darker version, which is called "Comfortably Numb 2022," features a more ominous tone than the original that came out more than four decades ago.

"During lockdown, I made a demo of a new version of 'Comfortably Numb' as an opener for our new show This Is Not a Drill," Waters said in a news release. "I pitched it a whole step down, in A Minor, to make it darker and arranged it with no solos - except over the outro chord sequence, where there is a heartrendingly beautiful female vocal solo from Shanay Johnson, one of our new singers."

"Comfortably Numb 2022," co-produced by Waters and Gus Seyffert, features work from ten musicians and has strings, percussion, bass, guitar and more.

Sean Evans produced and directed the accompanying video for the track. The visual was shot by Kate Izor. Waters recorded the track during his "This Is Not a Drill" North American tour.

"Comfortably Numb" was originally included on 1979's The Wall before being released as a single in 1980. Its lyrics were inspired by an incident in 1977 when Waters, suffering from hepatitis, was injected with tranquilizers before taking the stage to perform.

"That was the longest two hours of my life," he later told Rolling Stone. "Trying to do a show when you can hardly lift your arm."

The Doors Share Previously Unreleased 'Paris Blues'

The Doors Share Previously Unreleased 'Paris Blues'

Rock legends The Doors recently shared a previously unreleased song, "Paris Blues."

"'Paris Blues' traveled a long and winding path to its release, taking on a mythic quality among Doors' fans along the way," noted a message accompanying the tune. "An original blues song written by the band; the track was recorded during one of the band's recording sessions for either The Soft Parade or L.A. Woman (no one seems to remember)."

"Paris Blues" was most likely recorded sometime between 1968 and the end of 1970.

"The master tape of the song was lost and the only surviving copy was given to Doors' keyboardist Ray Manzarek," the official message continued. "Sadly, this copy was partially damaged by his son Pablo (a toddler at the time), who recorded over a few short parts. Now, through some creative editing, the song has been rescued from obscurity for the new album."

"Paris Blues" also serves as the title track to a new upcoming blues-themed compilation, which will drop on Friday, November 25. The album will be available as a limited edition of 10,000 numbered copies on translucent blue vinyl at select independent music stores.

Nandi Bushell Covers Rage Against The Machine With Help From Younger Brother

Nandi Bushell Covers Rage Against The Machine With Help From Younger Brother

Nandi Bushell recently posted an instrumental cover of Rage Against The Machine's song "Killing In the Name."

The work by Bushell features assistance from her brother Thomas on the drumkit. Bushell plays the guitar portion and hits Tom Morello's crunchy notes with awesome precision.

"A family that Rages together, stays together! I love jamming with my brother Thomas," Bushell shared on social media. "I am teaching him about all the greatest #rock and #metal #bands. @RATM is one of the bands at the top of my list! #ratm. Hey @tommorello and @bradwilk you guys are awesome! Thomas is really getting good!"

Morello surprised Bushell by gifting her one of his signature guitars in 2020. "To see someone rocking so great who is so young, it really gives me hope for the future," Morello said during a video message to Bushell at the time.

"Killing In the Name" was released as the lead single from Rage Against the Machine's self-titled November 1992 debut album. The lyrics of the track were inspired by the police brutality suffered by Rodney King and the Los Angeles race riots in 1992 that occurred as a result.

Rolling Stones' '2000 Light Years From Home' Video Receives 4K Restoration

The official music video for the Rolling Stones' "2000 Light Years From Home," restored in 4K resolution, has been released.

The "promotional film", as videos were referred to in the pre-MTV era, was produced in 1967. Peter Whitehead directed the video.

Released in the U.S. as a B-side to the single "She's a Rainbow" and worldwide as part of the band's experimental/psychedelic album Their Satanic Majesties Request in late 1967, "2000 Light Years From Home" was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards earlier in the year.

The song is light years sonically from the band's bluesy roots.

The song was recorded at Olympic Sound Studios in the summer of '67 and was produced and arranged by The Rolling Stones.

The video begins with close-ups of all five original members and features a staged performance by the group on color-treated film.

Liam Gallagher Documentary, Concert Film Headed To Paramount+

A feature-length documentary that highlights Liam Gallagher's two sold-out performances at Knebworth 22 will premiere on Paramount+ on December 6 in the United States and Canada.

The film, titled Liam Gallagher: Knebworth 22, will premiere on the service in the U.K., Australia, Latin America, Italy and France on December 7.

The premieres for Germany, Switzerland and Austria are slated for December 8.

The concert in full will stream alongside the documentary on Paramount+.

"I'm still in shock that I got to play Knebworth two nights, 26 years after I played it with Oasis," said Gallagher. "I'm still trying to get my head around it. To have played to multiple generations at the same venue so many years apart was beyond biblical."

"I'm so glad that we documented it; Knebworth for me was, and always will be, a celebration of the fans as well as the music. Enjoy the film and let's do it again in another 26 years," added the former Oasis frontman.

The Toby L.-directed documentary features interviews, behind-the-scenes, concert footage and stories shared by fans and collaborators.
