According to Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess, actor Joaquin Phoenix has been in the studio with him and Charlatans manager Alan McGee working on tracks that Burgess calls "brilliant" but that he doubts will ever be released to the public. The actor's perfectionism may cripple the album's future release, Burgess reports. Burgess told Billboard that Phoenix was inspired to write songs after learning to play guitar for the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line, of which he was the star. "Once [Joaquin] learned guitar, he found that he had quite a lot of demons inside himself that he wanted to expel through music," Burgess says. "All the tracks that me and Alan worked with him on were brilliant, but I think he just keeps scrapping everything or redoing everything. I'm sad to say that I think it's one of those records that may never come out, to be honest with you. It's an ongoing thing. I'm trying to get Alan to force him to put it out at the moment, but I don't know whether it will [get released]."

Jason Bond, an American biologist from East Carolina University, has named a newly discovered trapdoor spider species after singer Neil Young. The spider—now known officially as myrmekiaphila neilyoungi—was discovered in 2007 in Jefferson County, Alabama, where it is indigenous. “You can give a new species just about any name you please,” Bond told Gigwise.com. “With regards to Neil Young, I really enjoy his music and have had a great appreciation of him as an activist for peace and justice." No stranger to naming spider species after people he admires, Bond has also been responsible for the naming of other spiders, one after Nelson Mandela and another after his wife.

Keeping Zeppelin reunion rumors humming right along this week is Whitesnake frontman and longtime friend of Jimmy Page, David Coverdale, who tells Gigwise.com that a world tour is “very likely.” “I’m expecting a call from Jimmy any day asking my band Whitesnake to support them on their world tour,” Coverdale said. “Am I on board? You bet. Probably worth billions … Unlike rolling out the wheelchairs with the umpteenth Rolling Stones world tour, a Led Zeppelin tour will be incredible.”

Louisville, Kentucky's My Morning Jacket have announced that they'll take off on a headlining tour of the U.S. beginning in August. Dubbing their shows "An Evening with My Morning Jacket," the band plans to perform "epic, extended" versions of old favorites and new tunes from their June 10 release, Evil Urges. "That's the problem we always have sitting around trying to make a set list," Jim James told Billboard. "You want to play the new ones, but you also want to do some of the older ones. That's why we keep playing longer and longer." Leading up to the tour, MMJ will play the Bonnaroo festival in Manchester, Tennessee on June 13 and New York's Radio City Music Hall on June 20. They'll use Louisville as their tour's launching pad on August 16. Want to win tix to MMJ's Radio City show and a gorgeous Flying V Faded guitar to boot? Enter Here!
