Billy Joel says he will make an "exclusive and historic announcement" next Tuesday at New York's Madison Square Garden. The announcement will be broadcast on the MSG Network, MSG's Fuse Network and BillyJoel.com. It's likely the announcement will have to do with performing.
Back in 2010, Billy was said to be exploring the possibility of doing a residency in New York. Could be he's inked a deal with Madison Square Garden to either do one at MSG, where he has four shows early next year, one of the smaller venues in NYC like Radio City Music Hall. We'll see on Tuesday.
Billy Joel hit #1 in 1989 with his smash "We Didn't Start The Fire." Here it is from iHeartRadio:
This past Sunday marked the 22nd anniversary of the deth of Freddie Mercury. Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor used the occasion to announce that the movie about their lead singer is now full steam ahead.
The duo have been working on the movie for years. May said, "We had a fabulous breakthrough moment. We saw some trial footage which brought big smiles to our faces, and made three decisions which will enable us to press that vital button this coming week."
The film had hit a roadblock when actor Sacha Baron Cohen was fired from his role in the movie as Freddie Mercury. We'll see what happens from here.
Here's Queen's 1978 smah "Fat Bottomed Girls" from iHeartRadio:
The two surviving members of The Doors -- guitarist Robbie Krieger and drummer John Densmore will come together in Los Angeles for a question-and-answer session on December 5th at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
The event will be held three days before what would've been Jim Morrison's 70th birthday. The session will also feature a screening of Mr. Mojo Risin': The Making of L.A. Woman.
