Jay Z: Good as Elvis, Yeah Right

"Jay-Z's album inspired by the film "American Gangster" scores him another No. 1 album on the U.S. pop chart, selling 425,000 copies in its first week in stores. The rapper withstands a strong second-week showing from the Eagles' "Long Road Out of Eden" to earn his 10th album at No. 1, making him only the third artist in history to land 10 or more albums in the pole position."

Plans have been announced for a two-day rock concert at Wellington's Westpac Stadium next Easter, featuring the American band Kiss.

Kiss, starring Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, are well known for their theatrical make up and stage antics.

The event is being organised by Wellington-based promoter Capital C Concerts, who are already bringing Elton John and Bon Jovi to New Zealand this summer for one-off concerts.

Promoter Phil Sprey says the other acts will be announced shortly, but he is promising a unique 'Rocktacular', with a landmark special effects package.

A friend of Guns N' Roses' front man Axl Rose claims the wayward singer plans to release a trilogy of albums by 2012.

Former Skid Row front man Sebastian Bach, who opened for Guns N' Roses during their recent New Zealand tour, told Metal Edge magazine Rose had finished up to four albums.

He didn't say whether one of the them was Chinese Democracy - the much-delayed new album from Guns N' Roses.

"The thing that nobody gets, that I get, is that he has like four albums done," Bach told the magazine.

"All you people who don't think he's gonna put out a record are sadly mistaken. He just takes his time. It's his album. Axl does what he wants to do, that's the way it is."

Bach said Axl planned to release a trilogy of records, with the third to be released by 2012.

When asked what the new songs sounded like, Bach said "the world's not prepared for what I've heard from this guy".

"It's got the grandness and epic-ness of November Rain but with the snarl, the attitude of Appetite (For Destruction.

"There's some great music coming your way."

Guns N' Roses' last album was 1993's The Spaghetti Incident. Rose brought a new-look line-up to New Zealand for two sold-out shows earlier this year.
