Guns N’ Roses have been confirmed as the 3rd headliner at next year’s Download festival in the UK – joining Ozzy Osbourne and Avenged Sevenfold. The festival will run from June 8-10, 2018. The band will wrap up their 2017 touring schedule for their Not In This Lifetime reunion tour at the end if this month with a string of shows in California.
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl was talking about how he came up with the riff for the song ‘La Dee Da’ off the band’s latest album Concrete and Gold, and it just goes to show that inspiration can come from the most mundane things: “I was driving back from taking my kids to the bus stop…And I hummed it into my phone. And that’s what I sometimes do, I’ll hit the voice thing on my phone and just hum these stupid riffs. I’ve got a million of them and it sounds so weird to hear me going like that.”
Rush are sharing a video preview for the 40th anniversary edition of their album, A Farewell To Kings. It’ll be available in a number of CD and vinyl editions. The release date is December 1st. Rush will also release a 7” single for “Closer To The Heart” for this year’s Record Store Day.
