They spent most of the ’90s and early aughts recording sporadically as Heart, but Ann and Nancy Wilson appear to be making up for lost time: 2012 will bring plenty of live dates, a new box set, a memoir of their time in the rock ‘n’ roll trenches, and — most exciting of all for longtime fans — an album of new material.
Over the last decade and change, the annual Concerts for Teenage Cancer Trust have become a London tradition — and this year, they’ll celebrate their 12th anniversary with an impressive run of shows that will kick off with a Paul McCartney performance on March 29.
Can you feel that? Oh no, wait, it’s more than a feeling. Yes, that’s right — while work on its long-delayed sixth studio album continues, Boston is returning to the road for a summer tour. As frontman Tom Scholz joked in his announcement to fans, this latest run of dates comes just in time for the end of the world.
While we wait for definitive word on whether the Rolling Stones will celebrate their 50th anniversary by going on tour this year, we can content ourselves with the band’s ongoing series of ‘official bootleg’ releases — and at least one of the band members is hitting the stage in the near future: Keith Richards, who’s performing at a benefit in honor of recently deceased guitar legend Hubert Sumlin.
For Beach Boys fans, the story of drummer Dennis Wilson has long been one of rock’s most tragic tales, but to the larger record-buying public, his tumultuous life and untimely death has remained largely unknown. That looks set to change next year with ‘The Drummer,’ a biopic starring Aaron Eckhart as Wilson and Vera Farmiga as his onetime paramour (and former Fleetwood Mac keyboardist) Christine McVie.
Ace Frehley may not be sharing the stage with Paul Stanley and the other original members of Kiss anymore, but thanks to a pair of new custom guitars being produced by Washburn and Les Paul, you can relive your memories of the band’s glory days with some hot licks of your own.
