Comments
The injuries sustained by My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James during a show in Iowa two weeks ago has forced the band to cancel the European leg of its current tour, which was slated to begin Oct. 29 at Dublin’s Irish Museum of Modern Art. In all, the band was forced to cancel 12 shows that would have taken it to Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Germany, England and Scotland, in addition to Ireland. The tour is scheduled to resume at the Chicago Theatre on Dec. 27-28, which are make-up shows for cancellations in the wake of James’ fall during a concert at the University of Iowa on Oct. 7.

It may be one of the greatest finds in Delta blues history. Seventy years have passed since Robert Johnson died in 1938, and thus far only two photos of the legendary artist have surfaced. Until now. Maybe. As detailed in a just-published article in the November issue of Vanity Fair, a guitar connoisseur named Zeke Schein may well have uncovered a third photograph of Johnson.

In an unlikely pairing of musical talents, British arena rock legends Def Leppard have teamed up with country music superstar Taylor Swift for an episode of CMT Crossroads, scheduled to air Nov. 7 at 9 p.m. EST on CMT. The show was taped recently before an invitation- and standing-room only audience in Nashville, and according to Swift, it fulfilled a “childhood dream” to be on the same stage with Def Leppard lead singer Joe Elliot and his band. In keeping with the show’s format, the two swapped stories and shared about their common love of music, in between performances of such hit songs as “Photograph,” “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” “Hysteria,” “Picture to Burn,” and “Love Story,”

Garbage’s Shirley Manson inadvertently let the cat out of the bag last week, and Green Day finally confirmed it yesterday: Green Day is hard at work in the studio on their new album with veteran producer Butch Vig. Manson let the news slip recently on “The Carson Daly Show.” Over the weekend, Green Day posted a video on their YouTube page that shows the band in the studio’s control room working with Vig. Small bits of two new songs can be heard in the background, but not enough to get a feel for the vibe of the new material.

In a case of real life mirroring fiction (or something like that), the success of the video game Rock Band has spawned a reality show. As reported by ew.com, today (Oct. 15) VH1 Classic will launch a series titled Rock Band 2: The Stars. Alice Cooper and Sebastian Bach will host the show, which features 12 aspiring rock musicians who share a loft and compete in challenges structured to showcase Rock Band 2’s new features. The show will consist of six mini-episodes that combine game play with a “general rock attitude.” One contestant will be eliminated each week, and a final showdown between the remaining contestants will take place at the famous Viper Room in Los Angeles. ?Russell Hall

It seems a Massachusetts man is either livin’ on a prayer, or perhaps has taken some bad medicine. In court documents filed late last week, a musician named Bart Steele launched a $400 billion lawsuit against Bon Jovi, alleging the band copied lyrics from a 2004 song of his titled “(Man I Really) Love This Team.” Steele alleges that Jon Bon Jovi heard the original song ? which was used as an anthem for the Boston Red Sox ? while campaigning for presidential candidate John Kerry in 2004. As reported by antimusic.com, Steele calls the Bon Jovi hit “I Love This Town” (which was later used as a promotional track for Major League Baseball) an “unauthorized derivative version” of his original composition.
