CLASSIC ROCK NEWS:

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN: He’s a Soul Man

It appears as though the new Bruce Springsteen album is a collection of soul tunes.

Rolling Stone magazine co-founder Jann Wenner recently let slip that he’s been listening to a new Springsteen album. Now the very reliable Springsteen podcast, None But the Brave, reports that he’ll release the long-rumored collection of soul covers on November 11th, with the first single coming next week.

Meanwhile another Springsteen site, Blog it All Night, says the rumored title is Only the Strong Survive and it contains 15 songs.

STEVIE NICKS: Showing Her Worth

Stevie Nicks has released a cover of Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth” — not to be confused with her song of the same name that she recorded for her 2011 album, In Your Dreams.

It was written in 1966 by Stephen Stills in response to the November 1966 Sunset Strip curfew riots in Los Angeles. Stevie says, “It meant something to me then, and it means something to me now.

“I always wanted to interpret it through the eyes of a woman — and it seems like today, in the times we live in, it has a lot to say… I can’t wait for you to hear it.”

Stevie recorded it earlier this year in Los Angeles and it’s available as a digital download or to stream. A Dolby Atmos mix can be found on all platforms that support the format.

It’s her first new song since last year’s “Show Them the Way.”

SAMMY HAGAR: Talked Out of Detour

Sammy Hagar cranks it out with The Circle on their new album, Crazy Times, but that wasn’t his plan.

The album’s producer Dave Cobb tells Rolling Stone that Hagar told him, “I’ll write songs about things around America and farmers and things … like a John Mellencamp record.”

Cobb says he told him, “Nah. I’ve made plenty of those. I want to make the definitive Sammy Hagar record. I grew up on your music, and I want to capture what I love about it.”

Just 11 when Hagar joined Van Halen in 1985, Cobb adds, “I remember playing drums along to ‘Dreams’ and just freaking out. I watched [their concert video] Live Without a Net every day after school. They really informed what I thought about music. And not just rock ’n’ roll, but music in general. Sammy has always been a centerpiece to me. I’ve always just loved his raspy voice.”

And, it was that Van Halen sound he was after, telling Circle bassist Michael Anthony, he wanted him to do that “classic Van Halen harmony. He was such a huge part of their sound, and we really tried to get those classic Van Halen vocal sounds. He’s just such an incredible singer, and the way he stacks harmonies is amazing to watch.”

Crazy Times comes out next Friday, September 30th.

DOOBIE BROTHERS: Rockin’ Down the Heavenly Highway

The Doobie Brothers are mourning the death of their founding drummer John Hartman. They released a statement saying:

FINALLY:

When Iowa visits Rutgers Saturday night in New Jersey, the game could make history for having the lowest over-under number in college football history. It opened at 35.5 and within a day dropped to 34.5. According to gambling site Action Network, 90% of the wagers have been for the under. History is on those bettors’ side. Three games in history have gone off with an over-under of 34, and the under was correct in all three. And perhaps not surprisingly, Iowa played in one of those games last year. Also, both teams have a punter from Australia, and they are widely considered to be the best two in the game.

STEVIE NICKS: Beauty and the Buffalo

Stevie Nicks will release a new song on Friday.

She made the announcement on her socials, saying, “It’s called ‘For What It’s Worth’ and it was written by Stephen Stills [for Buffalo Springfield] in 1966. It meant something to me then, and it means something to me now.

“I always wanted to interpret it through the eyes of a woman — and it seems like today, in the times we live in, it has a lot to say… I can’t wait for you to hear it.”

This will be Stevie’s first new song since “Show Them the Way” last year.

Stevie is still on tour, with her next stop set for the Sound on Sound Festival in Bridgeport, Connecticut on Saturday.

Gene Simmons has launched a line of Money Bag Vodka.

ZZ Top have launched their second in a line of limited-release whiskeys. Tres Hombres Bourbon follows last November’s Texas Whisky.

JOURNEY: Is This Is What You Should Be Believin’?

Neal Schon has responded to a petition filed against him and Jonathan Cain by former singer Steve Perry to cancel trademark registrations for 20 songs he had a hand in writing.

Schon, who now manages the band, responded with a rambling message on Facebook in which he says, “What a bunch of total crap. Here’s how it goes, friends.

“Jon Cain calls a board of directors meeting [in 2020] out of nowhere. Then, before I found out about the meeting, Jonathan came to me and said he didn’t like what they (now former bassist Ross Valory, now former drummer Steve Smith, Perry and former manager Herbie Herbert, who has since passed away) were planning.

“On that meeting, [they] voted myself and Cain off the board of directors, and Perry and all voted Ross in my place and Smith in Jon’s.

“They all knew at this time I’d been investigating our trademarks for years trying to get to the bottom of all corruption as we found (my wife and I) that nothing had ever been trademarked besides our music.

“They all went for a takeover and it didn’t work. Quite simple.

“So, my wife, Micheale Schon, found a legitimate trademark attorney that wasn’t in the corrupt musical circles and we were then successful in attaining him to protect everything we built. We had been getting ripped off since the beginning until I shut it down.

“So the question is, ‘Why did nobody else’s attorneys — Steve’s, who was actually ours at one time — and individual band attorneys and accountants and other so called trademark attorneys help us do this?

“It was a giant corrupted ring of people that either management or accountants hired to work for us cashing, in on all our merchandise until now.

“At this point, I decided to go for all album titles as well as song titles. We got educated on how songwriting and copyrights have NOTHING to do with trademarks.

“You haven’t heard the last of this, friends. We are going to peel back the onion.”

The board meeting in 2020 led Schon and Cain to fire Steve Smith and Ross Valory.

Perry’s petition claims Schon and Cain registered such songs as “Separate Ways,” “Open Arms,” “Anyway You Want It,” “Who’s Crying Now,” “When You Love a Woman” and others through Freedom JN LLC for use on hats, T-shirts, athletic jackets and other paraphernalia. He says this violates an earlier agreement that stipulates decisions like these must be made with “prior, written unanimous consent of all partners in each instance.”

He also claims they used “false or misleading information” in securing the trademarks.

SPORTS REPORT OF SORTS:

UK FB:

Five University of Kentucky football players filed a lawsuit Wednesday against a Lexington police officer.

Reuben Adams, JuTahn McClain, Andru Phillips, Devito Tisdale and Joel Williams were University of Kentucky student-athletes who in 2021 were facing charges related to a fight at an Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity house party. The charges were dropped the same year by a Fayette County Grand Jury, who determined the charges against the players were “false and fabricated,” according to a press release.

Attorneys for the football players say the charges led to their temporary suspensions from the team, harmed their football, educational and professional careers, and damaged their names, images and likenesses.

The officer being sued is identified as Cory Vinlove. The five players say Vinlove made false charges without probable cause. (WTVQ)

They say the allegations against them not only damaged their football careers, but also their reputations, and any earnings they could have made from NIL deals. (WKYT)
