The Weekend Round Up – Eddie Vedder, Adam West And More! Off the Grid this weekend and missed out on all the latest music news? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a roundup of all you missed.
-Actor Adam West, sadly passed away over the weekend. The Caped Crusader on the classic 1960s series Batman died aged 88.
-Eddie Vedder is a ledge. He played a whopping thirty-three songs during his gig at the 3Arena on Friday. The venue has a specific policy about playing past a certain time, which incurs a fee on artists who go past it. And according to a user on the PearlJam.com message boards called ten-vs-vitalogy, Vedder walked off stage during the concert, signed a cheque for €25,000 in order to allow him to continue play and returned to the stage!
-Nova’s own Alice Cooper has lifted the curtain on his upcoming Paranormal LP with a pre-release listen of the set’s first single, “Paranoiac Personality.” Listen to it here. The LP is due in stores July 28 and available to pre-order now. Calling the album “like 12 great episodes of The Twilight Zone,” Cooper promised that “each song tells its own twisted little tale” and added, “My definition of paranormal is something that is ‘other than normal’ or ‘alongside of normal.’
– Kiss have launched a line of covers and wallpapers for Google’s Pixel and Nexus phones. Each cover comes with a range of live wallpapers.
And finally …
