Morning Music Notes – New Album or Indefinite Hiatus?
Steven Tyler Has “Accident” in the Shower
Although never a huge Aerosmith fan, one can never pass on a joke at their expense, specifically Steven Tyler. Singer Steven Tyler, famous for being
on American Idol the lead singer of Aerosmith, has wiped out while taking a shower, while on tour in Paraguay (via Spinner). Wait, isn’t Steven Tyler at the age where he’s getting sponge bathed in a residence?
The report says Steven Tyler “was reportedly rushed to the La Costa medical center in Paraguay’s capital city, Asuncion, after slipping on the wet floor of his hotel room’s shower, suffering cuts to his face and knocking out two teeth. Tyler spent almost four hours in the hospital, where doctors administered stitches, and affixed two dental implants to replace his lost teeth. He has since returned to his hotel to recover, after being discharged in “good condition,” according to Reuters.
“Due to Tyler’s injuries, Aerosmith was forced to postpone tonight’s concert until Wednesday (Oct. 26). They will, however, continue their tour, performing in Argentina, as planned, on Oct. 28.”
“The 63-year-old singer’s injury has concerned fans, as the last time Tyler took a fall, while performing in South Dakota, Aerosmith was forced to cancel the remainder of their 2009 Summer tour, and Tyler was subsequently admitted to a rehab facility for pain management and addiction to prescription painkillers.”
And the plot thickens!!
Liam Gallagher to Appear in Beatles Film, Also Still Pushing for Oasis 2015 Reunion
After Noel recently trounced Liam’s Beady Eye in the Week 1 sales charts, Liam is looking for some positive news. Richard DiLello’s book The Longest Cocktail Party, which details the final days of the Beatles at their Apple Corps record label, is being turned into a movie. The director has said that Liam Gallagher will have a role in it (via Gigwise). This is great for Liam, as he has been trying his hardest to act like a Beatle for the past 17 years. No word on exactly what role he will have though.
“Michael Winterbottom will helm the project, having previously directed 24 Hour Party People, a 2002 film about the Factory Records label. He told Contactmusic: “Liam will have a part in it. He’s all over it. It’s about the mad chaos of Apple, so it’s not dissimilar to 24 Hour Party People… I’ve met him (Gallagher) a few times. He seems like a nice guy.”
The Longest Cocktail Party is scheduled for release late in 2012.
People debated Oasis splitting up for a while, and now they are discussing what to read about Noel and Liam’s banter about an Oasis reunion in 2015. Liam suggested it could happen, Noel said no, Liam said that Noel suggested it. Last night, Liam and his wife Nicole Appleton (formerly of All Saints fame) appeared on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight. When asked about the Oasis reunion, Liam told George, “”I’m definitely up – well, Noel is the one that started this kind of thing. But I’m definitely up for doing a tour. I mean, as long – I don’t think me ‘n’ him’ll ever be in a full-on band again, you know what I mean? That’s done, I think. But Noel was mentioning like a tour for the 2015 ‘What’s the Story Morning Glory’, and I think by then, three years, I will have grown up a bit and so will he.”
Keep milking it, Liam.
U2 Might May a New Album, or Might End Their Careers
Let’s take quotes out of context and start rumours. That’s how music websites get more popular, right? The band are currently promoting the Achtung Baby re-issue release, and have been asked a shitload of questions about what they are doing now, and can they sell albums in this musical climate. Rolling Stone mentioned an old U2 lyric, “You glorify the past when the future dries up” (via Rolling Stone) and spoke to Bono and the Edge.
“I’m not so sure the future hasn’t dried up,” says Bono, who’s been irritating his bandmates lately by publicly questioning U2’s relevance – despite the fact that they just finished the highest-grossing tour of all time. “The band are like, ‘Will you shut up about being irrelevant?'” he says. But Bono can’t help himself – even though U2 have been in and out of the studio with various producers recently, he raises the possibility that the band may have released its final album. “We’d be very pleased to end on No Line on the Horizon,” he says, before acknowledging the unlikelihood of that scenario: “I doubt that.”
Meanwhile, U2’s future plans are not set. “It’s quite likely you might hear from us next year, but it’s equally possible that you won’t,” says the Edge. Adds Bono, “We have so many [new] songs, some of our best. But I’m putting some time aside to just go and get lost in the music. I want to take my young boys and my wife and just disappear with my iPod Nano and some books and an acoustic guitar.”
So there you have it, U2 are breaking up. Now go enjoy your day / cry yourself to sleep (on your giant pillow).
