Myles Kennedy, lead singer of the band Alter Bridge, did an interview recently where he discussed the plans for the band moving forward. Kennedy is doing press ahead of the final leg of his Year of the Tiger tour with a full band.
In the interview, Kennedy was asked about the plans for Alter Bridge. Kennedy said that he is currently writing his portion of songs for the band’s 6th studio album and Mark Tremonti is also working on music for the release.
The plan is for the band to come together in April 2019 to work on the album as a full band. This means that we could very much see an Alter Bridge album in 2019!
The guys in Alter Bridge have been very busy. Myles Kennedy released The Year of the Tiger, his solo debut in March and Tremonti released A Dying Machine over the summer. Kennedy also released Living The Dream, the third studio album from his collaboration with Slash. On top of that, the band released Alter Bridge: Live At Royal Albert Hall.
This would would mean that the band or acts affiliated with the band have released 4 projects in 12 months. It’s a great time to be a fan of Alter Bridge.
The Trump Administration announced Friday that the sanctions lifted from Iran due to the nuclear deal in 2015 will be reimposed, undoing the work of the president’s predecessor, Barack Obama.
Earlier this year, President Donald Trump withdrew from the Iranian Nuclear Deal, marking the beginning of this rollback.
These sanctions will take effect November 5, covering “Iran’s energy, ship building, shipping, and banking sectors,” according to Secretary of State Michael Pompeo.
“These sanctions hit at the core areas of Iran’s economy.”
For Iran to have these sanctions lifted again, there are 12 things Secretary Pompeo states they must do.
These demands include ending military engagement in Syria and support for terrorism, and the conclusion of their development of nuclear and ballistic missiles.
Eight countries are receiving temporary waivers to continue importing Iranian petroleum products as they attempt to end these imports entirely within the next six months.
What these sanctions will also do is punish other countries that continue to import Iranian oil, as well as foreign companies that work with these countries.
The announcement of these sanctions being reimposed was welcomed by Israel, who have long considered Iran as a threat.
Israel’s Ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer, thanked the president saying Iran is a “regime that vows and works to destroy the Jewish state.”
Freddie Mercury is one of, if not THE biggest name in rock and roll music. The flamboyant singer of Queen was known for being just that: flamboyant and extremely talented.
The Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody chronicles the life of Mercury from when he joins Brian May and Rodger Taylor to form Queen. And from there, the movie progresses really quickly into the rise of the band.
They go from playing a few pub gigs to selling their van and recording a record that would lead to the success of ‘Killer Queen’, to being mega chart topping band releasing ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.
The movie progresses extremely fast. Too fast for a movie that is over 2 hours long. Which is where my criticism of the movie comes in.
Disclaimer, I am not a massive historian when it comes to Queen and Freddie, so I don’t know if the band really struggled. However, what I was looking forward to as a fan of music and loving to see the rise of bands was the struggle. I didn’t see any struggle for the band.
Mercury’s sex life was (and is) a huge focus on the movie. His sex life would lead to his untimely death at 45.
The movie is good. If you like Queen, you will like seeing the dramatization of how the band formed and recorded music. I felt like they did a really good job integrating the music into the movie.
Remi Malik did an incredible job playing Mercury. I am not sure how much of Malik’s acting was really representing Mercury or how much of it was “hollywood”, but it was really good acting.
If you’re looking for an in-depth look into the life of Freddy Mercury or the rise of Queen, this movie doesn’t do that too much. If you’re looking for a nice movie that briefly touches the bands successes, then you will really enjoy this.
NBC spent a lot of money a few years back to lure Megyn Kelly away from her longtime home of FOX News. Now, just shy of two years, the Megyn Kelly experiment seems to have ended over controversial comments made by the morning show host.
Kelly joined NBC in January 2017, just weeks before President Trump’s inauguration, and since then really didn’t move the needle the way NBC had hoped.
Megan Kelly Today took over the 9 a.m slot of the Today show. It really seemed to me that Kelly never really found her voice on the less political talk show.
On Monday, Kelly made comments about how it wasn’t bad to use blackface in a Halloween costume, as long as it was respectful and part of a costume. Kelly was instantly ridiculed for the comments. Now, she’s reportedly out of her talk show.
And NBC executive saying “Kelly’s out. You will never see her on NBC again”.
Here’s the kicker: IF NBC decides to fire her, she will walk away with $70 Million. NBC will have to pay her $70 Million, the remainder of her contract at NBC. Kelly will get an extended paid vacation to go away for a while.
Another report states that Kelly went to NBC News head, Any Lack, to ask if she can do more hard news rather than feel good stories and was turned down. Now, rumors are swirling that Kelly might be headed back to Fox News – which is where she was for 14 years prior.
What do you think about the Megyn Kelly firing from NBC?
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the debut rating for the Roseanne spin-off, The Conners drew a big Tuesday night rating for the network.
10.5 Million people tuned into the show’s first episode without Roseanne Barr. This is much less than the reported 18 Million people that tuned in for the Roseanne spin-off earlier this year.
One has to wonder how much of this audience was due to genuine interest in the show or curiosity on how they killed Roseanne of the show. Time will tell.
Over the summer. there
Well, Barbara Broccoli says that won’t happen. Broccoli is the female producer of the films and daughter of the Bond creator.
“Bond is male. He’s a male character. He was written as a male and I think he’ll probably stay as a male. And that’s fine. We don’t have to turn male characters into women. Let’s just create more female characters and make the story fit those female characters,” Broccoli said.
You will never see a lady Bond, but we will see Bond girls take a more aggressive and assertive role in the movies, not just eye candy.
