Former Queens of the Stone Age Bassist Nick Oliveri Arrested After SWAT Standoff

The former Queens of the Stone Age member, who recently rejoined his former bandmates in Kyuss for a reunion tour under the moniker Kyuss Lives!, found himself on the wrong end of a standoff with a Los Angeles SWAT team earlier this week, after a neighbor called the police to report a domestic disturbance.

John Fogerty Warms to the Idea of a Creedence Clearwater Revival Reunion

Almost 40 years after one of the most acrimonious breakups in rock ‘n’ roll history, former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman John Fogerty says he’s willing to consider the possibility of an eventual reunion.

Though their recording career spanned a mere five years, Creedence amassed one of the most successful — and enduring — discographies of the rock era, selling millions of albums and churning out an impressive stack of hits that included ‘Down on the Corner,’ ‘Fortunate Son,’ and ‘Who’ll Stop the Rain?’

Steven Tyler and Stevie Nicks Pay Tribute to Betty Ford

It’s always a national story when a former first lady dies — but when Betty Ford passed away over the weekend at the age of 93, the news affected not only those who remembered her years in the White House, but the thousands of people whose lives were affected by her groundbreaking work in addiction therapy.

Long before ‘rehab’ became a popular concept, Ford lent her name to the treatment center that has provided a safe haven and recovery tools to countless patients struggling with drug and alcohol addiction — and two of the center’s most well-known former residents have spoken out in remembrance of her work.

R.E.M. Quickly Returns to the Studio for Its Next Album

Over the last 15 years or so, R.E.M. fans have grown accustomed to three-to-four-year waits between new albums — but it looks like the band is speeding things up for its next release.

With its most recent album, ‘Collapse Into Now,’ a mere four months old, R.E.M. is already in an Athens, Georgia studio working on the follow-up — and fans can follow their progress via a series of snapshots that singer Michael Stipe is posting along the way.

Twisted Sister Rocks Again with ‘Double Live’

A little rock ‘n’ roll attitude and a whole lot of makeup can go a long, long way. Just ask the members of Twisted Sister, who will celebrate their 40th anniversary next year — and who are gearing up for the release of a double live DVD, fittingly titled ‘Double Live: Northstage Theatre 1982 / New York Steel Benefit show 2001.’

As you’d guess from the title, ‘Double Live’ collects a pair of Twisted Sister concerts, one from the band’s early ’80s heyday, and another from a reunion performance staged by the classic lineup to benefit the families of safety workers who perished in the September 11 attacks. As the DVD press release puts it, “The reaction to Twisted Sister’s set was overwhelming and led directly to the ongoing existence of the band today.”

Puddle of Mudd Covers Led Zeppelin, Elton John, and More on New Album [VIDEO]

When they entered the studio to work on songs for a follow-up to 2009′s ‘Volume 4: Songs in the Key of Love & Hate,’ Puddle of Mudd had a hard time finding the inspiration for new material — so they decided just to have fun playing some of their favorite tunes by other artists.

“We were really burned out, and when we started trying to write again it just wasn’t time yet,” said guitarist Paul Phillip in a recent Billboard interview. “We had been doing (AC/DC’s) ‘TNT’ and (the Steve Miller Band’s) ‘The Joker’ and had so much fun with those that one thing led to another, and we decided to make a covers record. It was just something fun to do, and we had a blast.”

Tom Petty Demands Michele Bachmann’s Campaign Stop Using ‘American Girl’

Michele Bachmann has now been told by Tom Petty that his song ‘American Girl’ is off limits for her presidential campaign.

Petty’s outspoken protectiveness of his music is certainly nothing new — in the ’80s, he engaged in a protracted public legal battle with his former label, MCA, over rising record prices, and more recently, he asked the Bush campaign to refrain from using his songs at campaign events.

Linkin Park Plays Unique Cover of Adele’s ‘Rolling in the Deep’ [VIDEO]

With 3.5 million copies sold and chart-topping radio play around the world, Adele’s ‘Rolling in the Deep’ is arguably the song of 2011. You just can’t escape it these days — not even if you’re in the audience for a Linkin Park concert.

At a recent fan club show, band members Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda unveiled their unplugged version of ‘Rolling in the Deep,’ stripping it down to acoustic guitar and vocals. It offered not only a new take on the song, but a rarely seen side of Linkin Park, a band that has sold more than 50 million units (and won a pair of Grammys) on the strength of its loud, rap-tinged brand of rock.
