GNR Las Vegas Set List on the Not In This Life time reunion tour.

The second gig of the Not In This Lifetime Tour was a larger scale affair. The Troubadour gig was GNR, turning over the gears, in sense, for the first time since 1993, this T-Mobile Arena gig in  Las Vegas was the band reaching out, playing more songs, sending the Night Train down the path of rock and roll glory.

The Gunners are back!

The Gunners are back and so are we. On 1 April 2016, Slash and Axl shared a cup of cool-aid, buried the hatchet public ally and with some old school and new school members of GNR, they bashed out a set at the famous Troubadour venue.

Playing a selection of classic GNR cuts, a sweet cover from The Spaghetti Incident and two songs from Chinese Democracy, GNR announced to the world they aren't finished just quite yet.

The gig was the first in what has been billed, the 'Not in this lifetime' tour. Featuring Axl, Slash and and Duff, there was a notable absence of Izzy Stardlin. While he has performed with Axl several times over the last 15 years, he's under er.. no illusions as to the potential chemistry that's been unbottled so he's decided to stay away. For now?

Sonic Youth 'Dirty' tour set list, New Zealand early 1990s

somic youth set lsit nz dirty tour

We’ve come out of semi - retirement as The Gunslinger sent us this pix of a Sonic Youth set list from when they toured NZ in the 1990s when they were riding a wave of popularity due to the success of ‘grunge’ and what not, not that you could accuse Sonic Youth of actually being a grunge band per se. Perhaps the very definition of alternative music? 

Anyways, pundits on the Slow Boat records Facecrack page reckon this set is from the Dirty Tour and is possibly from a gig in Christchurch  in 1992/3.

Mike McCready does an awesome cover of Van Halen's Eruption - here's the video

mike mcready jumping on stage live

OMG, something awesome to bring us out of our slumber. Here’s a video of Mike McCready doing a sweet version of Eddie Van Halen’s Eruption. The rendition isn’t too shabby for a live performance on a rainy, rainy night.

This solo was shredded out at Wrigley Field, Chicago on July 19, 2013 as Pearl Jam began a new tour to promote their newest album, LightningBolt.

At the gig PJ debuted two new songs to the world. The first was the title track from the album, the second being the slow but sure Future Days which featured album producer Brendon O’Brien playing along on keys. I’m picking the later will become a fan favourite in no time at all.

Here's the set list from that night:

Set One:

Present Tense
Hold On
Low Light
Come Back
Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town

Rain delays led to a second set that was shorter than intended:

Set Two:
All The Way (Eddie Vedder song) (with Ernie Banks)
All Night
Do the Evolution
Setting Forth (Eddie Vedder solo song)
Mind Your Manners
Lightning Bolt (debut performance)
Even Flow
Eruption (Van Halen cover)
Why Go?

PJ Set Encore:

Future Days (with Brendan O'Brien playing keyboard)
Mother (Pink Floyd cover from the Wall album)
Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns (Mother Love Bone cover)
Wasted Reprise
Life Wasted

Rockin' in the Free World (Neil Young cover)

Scott Weiland fired from STP. Again.

Scott Weiland won't be so happy in his galoshes this morning:

The Stone Temple Pilots have fired singer Scott Weiland.

In a one-sentence news, publicist Kymm Britton said: "Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland."

It said: "I learned of my supposed 'termination' from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press. Not sure how I can be 'terminated' from a band that I founded, fronted and co-wrote many of its biggest hits, but that's something for the lawyers to figure out," Weiland said.

"In the meantime, I'm looking forward to seeing all of my fans on my solo tour which starts this Friday."

The band's 1992 debut, Core, has sold more than 8 million units in the United States.

Their hits include Vasoline, Interstate Love Song and Plush, which won a Grammy in 1993 for best hard rock performance with vocal.

Weiland was also in the supergroup Velvet Revolver with Slash and other musicians, basically after he was fired for the first time by STP a few years back.

Noel to Liam: You're "Stratford's finest Oasis tribute band"


Noel to Liam: You're "Stratford's finest Oasis tribute band"
Trust Noel to say something witty about his brother singing Wonderwall at the Olympics closing ceremony.

At a War Child benefit concert at Dingwalls in London on Tuesday night, Noel hit back by dedicating his version of Wonderwall to "Stratford's finest Oasis tribute band".

Since Oasis split up three years ago after an argument at a music festival in Paris, the brothers have been estranged. Noel has frequently played his old band's songs live, though Beady Eye have resisted – until their concerts supporting the Stone Roses this summer, when they played Morning Glory and Rock'n'Roll Star.

Beady Eye's version of Wonderwall was their first public performance of the song.

Did you hear Noel Gallagher has a new album out? Do the Damage is a b-side to the lead single, In the Heat of the Moment.
