It’s only been a few months since the final chord rang out at the wrap-up of Black Sabbath’s farewell tour, but guitarist Toni Iommi is already floating the idea of the band playing together again, possibly playing a one-off show in their home city of Birmingham. He notes that he hasn’t spoken to the rest of the band about his idea, though he thinks that they’d be up for the occasional one-off show.
Pop star Robbie Williams made some inappropriate comments about Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page last year, and he’s now making a public apology. The two are neighbors, and Jimmy had filed complaints over the renovations being done to Williams’ mansion. Robbie made some inferences about Jimmy’s mental state in off the record comments which later leaked, so now the public apology.
Rush received a very unusual honor from the High Park Zoo in Toronto. Three baby capybaras have been named after bassist Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson and drummer Neil Peart. More than 44,000 votes were cast in a poll by the Friends of High Park Zoo group. Geddy took to the band’s Instagram page to acknowledge the honour, though he admits that since capybaras don’t wear glasses, he’s not sure which one is named after him.
