One of Iceland’s top exports and definitely its coolest, Sigur Rós oozes mood even when they don’t say a word. It’s been nearly 15 years since the quartet first introduced their awe-inspiring, otherworldly sound—crafted in part by guitarist Jónsi Birgisson, who utilizes a cello bow heavy with resin and drenches his Gibson Les Paul in reverb—and on November 6, the band will celebrate their career thus far with the live double disc Hvarf/Heim. The album will also coincide with the release of Heima, a DVD of live concert footage captured last summer.

He said they were also releasing a music video with this. No word about a release date for that mystery album though.

Is Jimmy Page getting ready to bust out his signature Gibson Double Neck for another round of "Stairway To Heaven"? That's the word out of London, where over the weekend advertisements appeared for a Led Zeppelin reunion show in November at the O2 Stadium (formerly the Millennium Dome). The surviving members of the group -- Page, singer Robert Plant and bassist John Paul Jones -- have only reconvened for a handful of gigs since splitting in 1980 following the death of drummer John Bonham.

Veteran rockers Los Lobos have announced they’ll be joining John Mellencamp on the first leg of his tour that will take them through Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri, and Indiana, Mellencamp’s home state. Suffice to say, it’s a bit far from the band’s home of East Los Angeles where they formed more than 30 years ago.

Joe Perry didn't have any names quite yet while talking to Billboard.com earlier this week, but the guitarist did say they were quite excited about getting back to work and having Rick Rubin take over the reins at their label: "His heart's in the right place when it comes to rock 'n' roll."

Now everybody knows that the superfans over at the Les Paul Forum love to hate us and hate to love us, but they are near and dear to our hearts over here in the Gibson Editorial Department. They certainly keep us on our toes. Lord have mercy on us if we mix up a '58 and '59 Standard; they'll be gathering the pitchforks and torches to run us out of town.

New Zealand folk parody duo Bret McKenzie and Jermaine Clement say that the name they chose for their wacky act and hit HBO show Flight of the Conchords came from a dream in 2002, when the guys were just getting their start on the comedy scene. “I had this dream about this V formation of Flying V guitars that kind of looked like Concordes, and I was just telling Jemaine about it, and we just ended up with Flight of the Conchords,” McKenzie has explained.
