The Rock N Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony takes place tomorrow in New York City and Pearl Jam will be taking their place in rock history. Originally, Neil Young was slated to induct the band, but was forced to cancel his appearance due to illness. In his place will be former late show host and comedian, David Letterman. Hopefully Young will get better soon!
Last month, Disturbed announced plans to release an acoustic EP ahead of going into the studio to record their next album. And, during the band’s recent tour stop in Moscow, singer David Draiman let fans know that the EP will include some acoustic versions of songs from their catalog, but there will also be new material as well. Draiman said they don’t have a date in mind for release because they want to take proper time with it.
Although Black Sabbath has officially come to the end of their touring life, the band still intends to put out new music. Recently, Geezer Butler said that the band is considering doing a blues album. In fact, they wanted to make the record before the tour, but opted to tour first. Black Sabbath ended their touring due to guitarist Tony Iommi’s cancer diagnosis and even though he’s in remission can’t tour for long periods of time.
