Kim Monroe’s Music Minute April 13th

Rock N Roll icon, Chuck Berry was laid to rest on Sunday following a very emotional memorial service.  In attendance for the service was Gene Simmons of KISS who was asked to say a few words about the legend.  Simmons, who was very emotional, shared the impact that Berry had on him as a young man and how his music changed the landscape of music becoming one of rock’s founding fathers.

Black Sabbath finished their year long “The End” tour in their home town of Birmingham in the UK in February.  According to a recent interview guitar great Tony Iommi said that he is in the process of mixing down the sound from that final show for a possible live album.

Foo Fighters and Sarah Silverman are among the artists and comedians who have contributed to a special charity box set.  The “7 Inches For Planned Parenthood” set features mostly unreleased seven inch singles to benefit the reproductive health care organization and should be out in the coming weeks.
