  • JACK WHITE GOES ON 'RANT' ABOUT 'ROLLING STONE,' FOO FIGHTERS

    Jack White launched into a humorous "rant" during a show on Wednesday night (September 17th) at Fenway Park in Boston. According to The Wrap, White trashed Rolling Stone magazine's website for its heavy coverage of the Kardashian family, while also touting mock headlines like "15 Outfits That Will Blow Your Mind That Taylor Swift Wore This Month" and "12 Reasons Rolling Stone Won’t Put a Black-And-White Cover on Your Magazine Unless You’re Dead." He also noted that Rolling Stone owns Us Weekly, which White called the "tabloid capitol of magazines" that had been "keeping paparazzi alive for 20 years."

      White also called out singers who don't actually sing onstage and even lightly smacked Foo Fighters for using two guitarists to play the same exact parts. White later issued a statement in which he called the Foo Fighters comment "a joke," adding that he "has the upmost respect for the Foo Fighters and communicated with Grohl this morning." Even as he kept talking for three minutes during the show, White acknowledged that he was embarking on a "Kanye West-esque rant" and said, "I'm officially supposed to stop now . . . because apparently nowadays you're not allowed to speak to your own fans about anything that could be a rant. Forget ISIS, forget the war in the Middle East, forget any problems at home, forget gay marriage, forget everything you've ever thought about anything. This is not a rant, this is just me saying hello Cleveland!" White concluded by saying, "Brought to you by RollingStone.com." White's outspoken nature has gotten him in trouble a few times this year, with apologies issued to the likes of the Black Keys and his former bandmate and ex-wife, White Stripes drummer Meg White. He has also called out the "soundbite, sensationalized" media culture. White is touring in support of his second solo album, Lazaretto, and next stops in Atlanta on Friday (September 19th) for the Music Midtown festival.

  • CROBOT GOES SCI-FI IN 'SPACEBORNE KILLER' VIDEO

    Crobot has released a music video for "Legend Of The Spaceborne Killer," which appeared on the band's self-titled EP and will resurface on its first full-length album, Something Supernatural. Frontman Brandon Yeagley told us where the inspiration for the title and song's lyrical content came from: "I mean, just all the years of being a geek and a sci-fi junkie and you know, just growing up in the environment, I guess, that I did and just watching the movies and...the thought of a killer from outer space is just, I don't know, it's just so cool to me and just 'Spaceborne Killer' just stuck."

    • Something Supernatural will arrive on October 28th.
    • The first single from Something Supernatural, "Nowhere To Hide," is a Top 20 success at rock radio.
    • Crobot will play four shows in the U.K. next week before returning home for a mix of headlining shows and festival gigs beginning on October 3rd in Hagerstown, Maryland.

  • LZZY HALE SAYS HALESTORM HAS 'DEFINITELY EVOLVED' ON NEW ALBUM

    Halestorm singer Lzzy Hale took time out from the recording of the band's third album to discuss the project with Gearphoria, admitting that there was more pressure this time to follow up the success of 2012's The Strange Case Of . . . . Hale explained, "We've definitely evolved. The one thing that has remained the same is that we're all perpetually 14 years old inside, so we're all very immature. That hasn't changed much. But the animal or monster of Halestorm has gotten bigger, and obviously there's more responsibility and also a little more on the line. But for the most part we've continued to do what we've always done, which is chase after whatever gets us excited."

    • Hale added, "It blows my mind that not only are we making our third record for Atlantic Records, which is a feat in itself because we know so many bands that never make it to this one . . . but also it has been 18 years since my brother and I started Halestorm, so there are moments of 'Can you believe we're still doing this?' It's mind-boggling."
    • The Strange Case Of . . . yielded two chart-topping rock singles in "Freak Like Me" and the Grammy-winning "Love Bites (So Do I)".
    • Halestorm debuted two new songs -- "Heartbreaker" and "Mayhem" -- at shows in Tennessee and England this past spring.
    • The new album will be the first one that Halestorm has written mostly in the studio. Hale told us that while she enjoys writing songs on tour, they're often different from what the band does in the studio: "Definitely. When everything is kind of more consistently tour-focused and not, you know, writing-focused, I definitely write differently. I explore different subjects without being picky about anything. So as things develop in my life, in either my personal life or professional, it's nice to explore all those different subjects, you know, without the pressure of being in the studio."
    • The band has also been taking time out from the studio to play shows here and there, which Hale has enjoyed, saying, "It's extremely inspiring to step out of the studio and then step in front of an audience and remind yourself why you're making these songs. It gives you perspective about what you're working on in the studio."
    • Halestorm will play shows in Baltimore at the end of this month before embarking on a longer U.S. tour that begins on November 11th in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

  • SEETHER FRONTMAN WOULD LOVE TO PLAY WITH NIRVANA

    Seether frontman Shaun Morgan told Alternative Nation in a new interview that he would jump at the chance to jam with the surviving members of Nirvana if he could. Morgan explained, "It would be something that I would love to do, but it’s not something that anyone has ever asked me to do. Obviously, just from being a kid, even just to play a show with those guys would be great. But it’s not something that I’ve ever been approached about doing, but obviously as a childhood dream, it would be great to be on stage with those guys."

    • Morgan added, "All the songs on Nevermind would be my favorites because they’re the ones that made me pick up a guitar."
    • Surviving Nirvana members Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear have staged semi-reunions over the past two years, backing Paul McCartney on a new song called "Cut Me Some Slack" and performing Nirvana classics with several female singers at the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April.
    • Seether continues to tour behind its sixth studio album, Isolate And Medicate, which came out in July.
    • The disc sold 37,000 copies in the U.S. in its first week of release to debut at Number Four on the Billboard album chart.
    • Seether is wrapping up 2014's Rockstar Energy Uproar Tour this weekend with Godsmack, Buckcherry and others. The trek closes out on Sunday (September 21st) in Tucson, Arizona.

  • BUSH'S GAVIN ROSSDALE ENJOYED DOING 'THE VOICE' WITH WIFE GWEN STEFANI

    Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale recently signed on as a guest mentor on the NBC talent show The Voice, where his wife, No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani, is a mentor for the entire season. Rossdale, who filmed his segments already, told us what it was like to do the show: "As an experience I really enjoyed it. It was fun to work with Gwen and it's a great set-up they have there, and I know it may seem a bit discordant with how we came up, but you know, who wants to be a humbug and sort of like poo-pooing those things. It just was really interesting to go in there and, you know, those guys, they can all sing real good. I was more worried about what could I possibly tell them to do. But I really enjoyed it. It was fun to do."

    • Rossdale's segments will tentatively air sometime in October.
    • According to Extra, Stefani said at a press event for the seventh season of The Voice that she "went back and forth" about having Rossdale appear, because "we have only collaborated on babies before."
    • She added, "I was really overwhelmed that Gavin was actually going to be on with me, and we got in a little fight about it the night before because I was like, I don't know if I can handle this. It's just too much. Then I slept on it in, and in the morning I said, ‘You know what, let's do this. It's going to spice things up.’"
    • Stefani said that the experience turned out to be "awesome," remarking, "For both of us to look back at everything we've done in our careers and to sit there together and be on the same page as far as like giving advice to these people . . . I'm getting so much out of it."
    • The new Bush album, Man On The Run, will arrive in stores October 21st.

  • NEW ROBERT PLANT SOLO SET DEBUTS IN THE TOP 10

    Robert Plant’s new solo set with backing band Sensational Space Shifters has earned the former Led Zeppelin frontman a Top 10 hit \on the Billboard 200 album chart. Vintage Vinyl News reported that the album, Lullaby . . . And The Ceaseless Roar, came in a full five spaces under Plant’s previous studio set, 2010’s Band Of Joy, and far below his Top Two runaway hit with Alison Krauss on their groundbreaking 2007 Raising Sand collection. Plant's 2004 album, Mighty Rearranger got as high as Number Four.

    On Wednesday (September 17th), Plant joined former squeeze and frequent collaborator Patty Griffin in Nashville to perform Griffin’s "Ohio" during the Americana Music Honors and Awards.

    • Robert Plant told us that the success he found in 2007 with the Raising Sand album both liberated and centered him creatively: "Following the work with Alison Krauss, which was a spectacular revival of my spirit in a way, I felt I could do more or less anything, I could sink and swim. There was no real big partnership moment. I don't have to ask anybody anything. I just stood there a little bit like I did when I was about 17."

  • JADA PINKETT TALKS DATE NIGHT WITH WILL SMITH

    When you're A-listers like Jada Pinkett and Will Smith, the world can be your oyster -- but sometimes they just want to hang in their backyard. Jada appears on the cover of Health magazine where she describes a date night with her hubby of nearly 17 years.

    She reveals, "A lot of times, we'll do it at the house because when we go out it can be a little hectic. So we have different places around our yard where we like to set up a little Arabian tent, pillows, wine and cheese, candlelight. Will likes really thought-out productions."

    • Jada previously addressed all of the rumors surrounding their marriage to Net-A-Porter last month saying, "The coping technique is knowing what the truth is -- there's no better technique. When you know that what's going on in your house is so the opposite of what's being said, and you also know that when there's mystery, people fill in the gaps, that's okay. And then you look back at it and look at how creative people can be, and it's kind of entertaining. We can laugh because it's so ridiculous."
