Jimmy Page Says Led Zeppelin Reunion "Doesn't Look Likely," Is Eyeing 2015 Solo


Image Courtesy of Ross HalfinLed Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has once again addressed the oft-asked question about whether he'd like to play with his old band again and, not surprisingly, his response won't encourage fans holding out hope for a reunion.Page hosted an event Tuesday at London's Olympic Studios featuring a playback of tracks from the next installments of Led Zeppelin's reissue campaign.  NME asked the guitar legend if remastering the band's catalog made him want to reunite with the other Zeppelin members, to which he answered, "I don't think it looks as though that's a possibility or on the cards, so there's not much more I can say about that.  I'm not going to give a detail-by-detail account of what one person says or another person says.  All I can say is it doesn't look likely, does it?"Although Page did not mention Robert Plant, his remark seemed to be influenced by the Zeppelin singer's recent dismissive comments regarding a reunion.  In August, Plant told U.K. newspaper The Telegraph that he thought Jimmy "should get on and do something," adding, "he's a superb talent."NME reports that Page revealed during Tuesday's event that he indeed was considering a new solo project."If I was to play again it would be with musicians that would be… some of the names might be new to you," he explained.  "I haven't put them together yet but I'm going to do that next year."He said that his shows with this proposed group would include "material that spanned everything from my recording career right back to my very, very early days with The Yardbirds.  There would certainly be some new material in there as well."The 70-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer added he loves to perform live, and said his shows would include instrumental versions of classic Led Zeppelin tunes like "Dazed and Confused."The latest Led Zeppelin reissues, remastered and expanded editions of 1971's Led Zeppelin IV and 1973's Houses of the Holy, will be released on October 28.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Listen to Jackson Browne's New Album, "Standing in the Breach," Online Now


Inside RecordingsJackson Browne is treating fans to a preview of his upcoming studio album, Standing in the Breach, currently streaming in its entirety over at USAToday.com.  The 10-song collection, which will be released next Tuesday, October 7, finds the 65-year-old singer/songwriter concerned, yet hopeful, about the state of the world.Browne tells USA Today that one the new tracks, "If I Could Be Anywhere," is a love song, but not in the traditional sense.  "[It's] a love song to the oceans, the environment, to future generations," he explains.  "It's the idea that there's a challenge that can only be met while we're here, both in the sense of being present and also that we're here at this moment in time."Meanwhile, Browne admits that the tune "Which Side Are You On?" bears some structural resemblance to Bob Dylan's spiritually-themed "Gotta Serve Somebody," but points out, "It's not a song about God; it's about your personal allegiances to the forces at play in our society."Standing in the Breach comes to a close with "Here," which Browne originally wrote for the 2009 Kevin Spacey film, Shrink."It's about accepting the world that has changed in a fundamental way you almost cannot accept," Browne tells USA Today.  "It's about, in the end, finding a way of being in the world."Standing in the Breach is Jackson's 14th studio effort, and the follow-up to 2008's Time the Conqueror.  Browne recently launched a fall U.S. tour in support of the record that's mapped out through an October 18 show in Indianapolis.  His next date is scheduled for this Saturday in York, Pennsylvania.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

KISS' Gene Simmons Featured on New Episode of AXS TV's "The Big Interview"


Image Courtesy of A&E and AXS TVKISS star Gene Simmons is rarely at a loss for words, which makes him a perfect guest for AXS TV's The Big Interview.  In a new episode of the program premiering tonight at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on the high-def network, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and entrepreneur chats candidly and in detail about a variety of topics with famed newsman Dan Rather.Among the subjects Simmons discusses is his impoverished childhood in war-torn Israel, being abandoned by his father at the age of seven and his mother's experience as a survivor of Nazi concentration camps.  Gene also will chat about his high-profile romances with Cher and Diana Ross, his enduring yet bumpy relationship with wife Shannon Tweed, his many business ventures and, of course, his long tenure in his famous rock band.In a preview clip from the show, Simmons declares, "Personally, I haven't had a bad thing happen to me.  I haven't had a bad day in my life -- not since I came to the Promised Land.  And let me you something, everybody points to Israel…but the Promised Land is America."AXS TV executive Michele M. Dix says of the episode, "Gene Simmons has never been shy about delivering the straight truth as he sees it, and this episode of The Big Interview is no exception.  But what sets this particular segment apart is Dan Rather's unique ability to dive head-first into his subject, setting the rock star bravado aside and cutting to the core of the man underneath the makeup and the carefully cultivated 'Demon' persona."Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Mike Rutherford Says Genesis' New "R-Kive" Compilation Showcases "a Great Body o


RhinoThe new three-CD Genesis compilation, R-Kive, featuring a career-spanning selection of songs by the band and from the various solo projects of the group's members, hits stores today, September 30.  The 37-track collection is a companion piece to the new documentary titled Genesis: Sum of Its Parts, which will get its U.S. premiere on October 10 at 8 p.m. ET on Showtime.Both R-Kive and the documentary included the participation of Genesis' classic early-to-mid-1970s lineup -- singer Peter Gabriel, singer/drummer Phil Collins, keyboardist Tony Banks, bassist/guitarist Mike Rutherford and lead guitarist Steve Hackett.  In putting the retrospective album together, each musician got to choose three songs from his non-Genesis material for the project.Rutherford tells ABC News Radio that the compilation helps paint a full picture of what the group has accomplished."[F]rom this one school band, Genesis, you had the Gabriel career, the Collins career, the Mike + the Mechanics career," Rutherford points out.  "And you put these songs together and you see a…'Turn It On [Again]' and a 'Biko' and 'In the Air [Tonight]' 'Living Years,' it's a great body of work."He adds that with R-Kive, "I think we're trying to just remind people that we always were one band, really, one sort of team in a sense.  And so, when you put it like that, I think it's a nice story to be told."The entire multidisc set is arranged in chronological order, which Rutherford says was "the only way to do it…otherwise you get lost."  He also says allowing each band member to pick three tunes from his solo catalog "seemed to make sense."The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, who turns 64 on Thursday, notes that he and his old band mates didn't have a lot of disagreement over their choices for the R-Kive track list."In general, we're pretty tight," he points out.  "You know, there was a bit of discussion about things, but the options were never like, 'Oh, that's great and that's rubbish.'"It's worth noting that the documentary will make its official TV debut this Saturday on the U.K.'s BBC Two, where it will air under the name Genesis: Together and Apart.Meanwhile, Rutherford has some disappointing, but perhaps not surprising news for Genesis fans hoping for a band reunion."There's no plans," Mike tells ABC News Radio.  He adds, however, that there is a ray of hope that the band members could play together again at some point, recalling a comment that Gabriel had made not too long ago.  "Peter said…'Listen, we're all above grass still, you know,' which is something, which is relevant," says Rutherford.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Phil Collins Reveals Struggle with Alcohol Abuse, Says He's Not Currently Intere


Image Courtesy of Atlantic RecordsLast week, Phil Collins revealed that, despite rumors to the contrary, he was not planning a full-fledged return to performing.  Now, in a new interview with U.K. newspaper The Daily Mail, the former Genesis star has come forward with some other revelations, including the fact that he fairly recently underwent treatment for alcohol abuse.The singer/drummer says his troubles with the bottle began a few years back, after he'd stopped touring and his ex-wife Orianne moved with their two young children and her new husband from Switzerland, where Phil has a residence, to Florida."We had a fantastic little set-up.  I was living…ten minutes away from the kids.  Used to pick 'em up all the time, used to go round for dinner with the ex-wife," he explains.  "But [her husband] didn't like Switzerland, so they moved to Miami.  And, really, retiring -- well, not working -- and not having the kids, I guess left a big void."Phil admits that he developed a destructive routine, where "I used to get up and I'd start drinking and watch the cricket.  Red wine, white wine.  And before long… I had pancreatitis," which is a dangerous inflammation of the pancreas.He points out that his problems were exacerbated by medication he was taking for other ailments, including joint pain he developed from decades of pounding the drums.Collins began to attend meetings and tried rehab, but says he couldn't stand it, comparing the experience to being in boarding school.  Eventually, Phil reports, "I found myself a great doctor here in America, and I went to a couple of specialists.  And I don't drink anymore."While Collins says he continues to take medication to treat his pancreatitis, he maintains that he's "never fallen off the wagon," adding, "I've just been lucky."Phil also addresses how he feels about possibly taking part in another Genesis reunion.  He points out to The Daily Mail, "I'm 63, soon be 64, and I joined Genesis when I was 19.  So surely it's clear to people that I may not want to do this?  Or I may want to do something different?"In addition to that, Phil adds that his current priority is spending time with his two kids with Orianne -- 13-year-old Nick and nine-year-old Matt -- noting that he may have not been as attentive as he would have liked when his children from his earlier marriages were growing up."I can't bear to not see my kids for a couple of months if I'm going to go on tour," says Collins.  "And my nine-year-old, I wonder what he thinks about when he puts the light off at night: 'Another ten days before Dad comes…'  I can't imagine him saying, 'Another two months.  Dad's on tour for two months.'"Lastly, Phil stresses that no ego boost he might receive from performing in front of huge crowds with his old band mates "could possibly beat what I have with my kids."Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" Inspires Injured Man to Swim to Shore After Boa


Chris Walter/WireImageThe Journey song "Don't Stop Believin'" and a shooting star are what a California man says got him through a nearly five-hour ordeal of being tossed into the sea with a shattered leg and broken hip after his fishing boat capsized off the coast of Hawaii.Brad Warren was fishing Sunday night on a boat owned and captained by Zack Romanak together with Romanak's 10-year-old son, Noah, of Port Allen, Hawaii, when a large wave hit the boat and twisted it sideways, sending all three passengers into the ocean.The wave's impact shattered Warren’s leg in three places and broke his hip before submerging him."I tilted my head back to get another last breath of air and a swell pushed the boat and I took a big gulp of water and started going down," Warren, 54, told ABC News from his hospital bed.  "It was scary."The trio spent more than four hours in the water, alternately climbing to the top of the boat and then being knocked back into the water by the relentless waves.With no hope in sight, it was Noah who suddenly heard something in the distance, the sounds of Journey's inspirational 1981 hit song playing from a party on the shore."After I saw that shooting star and I heard the Journey song, 'Don't Stop Believin',' I thought that was the Lord saying, 'You will be fine,'" Warren recalled.The men, especially Warren, decided to push past their pain and try to swim to land."He just wanted to swim in," Noah said of Warren."He was convinced the pain was so bad," Noah’s dad, Romanak, told ABC News.With no use of his right side, Warren swam alongside Noah and Romanak for 30 minutes until they found dry land."We were so relieved," said Warren.  "My wife, my daughters, I wanted to make sure I made it to see them."A handful of the partygoers who had unknowingly inspired Warren with their song choice came to the men's aid once they made it to shore, according to local newspaper The Garden Island.Firefighters arrived at the harbor shortly after midnight and treated the three survivors, the paper reports.The Garden Island also reports that Romanak's sunken boat was later found one-mile offshore.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News RadioMore ABC news videos | Latest world news
