LITA FORD’S VIDEO FOR “MOTHER” PREMIERES ONLINE

220px-Lita_Ford The reigning queen of hard rock Lita Ford has teamed up with USA Today for an exclusive premiere of the new video for her single Mother. The song comes from Ford’s latest solo album Living Like A Runaway, released last summer on Steamhammer/SPV.

Ford commented on the video and the song Mother, “Mother is my song to my beautiful sons. I know they will see the truth one day. They will always have a place in my heart, which bleeds for them through this song.” The video was directed by former Runaway Victory Tischler-Blue and can be seen below.

Lita Ford teamed up with producer Gary Hoey and lyricist Michael Dan Ehmig to work on Living Like A Runaway. Together the team invested a lot of time and effort into this project, “We worked on the lyrics intensively to really give the songs a lot of meaning and that special emotional depth. I think that these are some of the best lyrics ever, period.” Ford is referring to numbers such as “Devil In My Head”, “Hate”, and “The Asylum” which see her bare her soul in a way which she has never done before.

AIRBOURNE DISCUSSES THEIR NEW ALBUM “BLACK DOG BARKING” WHICH WILL BE RELEASED ON MAY 21ST

airbourne Airbourne’s third album, Black Dog Barking, will be released on May 21st through Roadrunner Records. Watch a video with band members discussing the new album below.

Watch the official video for the song Live It Up below.

Inspired by the likes of Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, AC/DC and Motorhead, Airbourne has been winning fans since 2003 with their high-energy, whiplash-inducing, workingman’s rock ‘n’ roll. Their first album Runnin’ Wild was named 2007′s ‘Album of the Year’ by SleazeRoxx.com, Best Debut Album at the 2008 Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards, and Spin said Runnin’ Wild, Airbourne’s debut, is a smorgasbord of sledgehammer riffs, crass sex puns, and boozy sing-alongs.”

Hailing from Warrnambool, a small drinking town on the southwestern coast of Victoria, Australia, Airbourne — vocalist/lead guitarist Joel O’Keeffe, drummer Ryan O’Keeffe, guitarist David Roads, and bassist Justin Street — has gained an immense following with their explosive live shows and main stage festival appearances including a headliner spot at Wacken 2011, Rock Am Ring/Park (Germany) and Download (UK).

STEVEN ADLER ON HIS CURRENT RELAPSE: “I PICKED UP THE PHONE BEFORE IT GOT OUT OF HAND”

Adler2013 Drummer Steven Adler has released the following statement explaining why he felt the need to go back into rehab:

“I picked up a bottle and drank. This occurred a few times and that is a few times too many. I knew that this had to permanently stop. That is the moment I picked up the phone, before it got out of hand, to get help. I had kicked hard drugs several years ago and now it is time to get rid of the urges of drinking alcohol. I am at a great facility and will stay here until I am comfortable to be home to work the program on my own. I love you all for understanding, being patient and supporting my decision. Like my peers, I will beat this too, so I can return to music and beat my drums!”

As previously reported, Steven’s band, Adler, had to postpone their summer tour due while Adler continues to work on his sobriety.

MOTLEY CRUE’S MICK MARS AMBUSHED ON STAGE BY A FAN

mickmarshat400 Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars was assaulted on stage after an audience member climbed onstage during the band’s performance in Canada on April 4th.

The chronically ill musician, who suffers from a disease that makes it difficult for him to move, was knocked down by a person who also grabbed singer Vince Neil and struggled with security men.

Mars, who was celebrating his 62nd birthday, later reported his personal guard Rhyno had suffered two broken ribs.

Crue were performing their song Primal Scream when an audience member made it onstage. He ran straight into Mars, sending him to the ground, before making contact with Neil.

The show was stopped as techs restrained the attacker, with bassist Nikki Sixx looking on in concern – and apparently kicking the “fan” – as two roadies picked Mars off the floor and helped him walk off. Drummer Tommy Lee shouted, “What the fuck is wrong with you, you fucking idiot?” Neil then told the crowd, “We might be back,” before disappearing. After a delay they returned and finished the show. Watch the video over at TMZ.

Mars was diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis at the age of 19 – the incurable genetic condition causes the spine to fuse together, making it difficult to move.

Last year he told Classic Rock Revisited “It’s one of those things that I call an inconvenience. I have days that are worse than others and there is always some amount of pain with my hips.

There are some things that are not so cool, but there is one thing that is cool: I ended up bent. I can always see my guitar. If I’d been straight then I would not be able to see myself play.”

Yesterday he tweeted, “Thank all of you for your concerns about me being knocked down last night. I’m alright; nothing broken. My bodyguard Rhyno got two busted ribs.”

5/6: BACK LIVE ON SIRIUSXM TONIGHT, GENE SIMMONS, MORE

Good to be back home. Made it back from M3 last night. If you follow on Twitter or check my Twitter feed you will see many photos I just posted with more to come. It was a pretty crazy 2 weeks with Golden Gods, M3, and of course the new TMS tapings which are now done and start airing June 1. We will discuss it all and much more live tonight from 6-10P ET / 3-7 Pacific on SiriusXM channel 39 Trunk Nation (Hair Nation). Also Ratt singer Stephen Pearcy will drop by around 6:30P ET and we will take calls for him. Tons to catch up on over the next week, we will get into some of it tonight for sure! Way too many stories to type, and I suck at typing!

 

Less than 3 weeks away from this years Rocklahoma which I am thrilled to once again be hosting. See you all in Pryor very soon!

 

If you follow on Twitter you know that last Thursday I did indeed sit and talk with Gene Simmons to clear the air with him face to face about exactly what I have said about Kiss as a fan and what my feelings are, cutting out the insane and inaccurate accounts usually posted on the internet. Gene was cool enough to invite me in his booth to sit and chat for about 10 minutes and clear the air to some degree. I did not back down from my own personal thoughts about what the band is doing, just relayed them ACCURATELY to Gene since the 99% of positives from the last 30 years as a Kiss fan that I have said and done are of course NEVER acknowledged anywhere. As I have also stated MANY times I have NO issue with Tommy or Eric in the band. My issue is and always has been with the fact that they are not their own personalities and for me I choose not to see it. But the whole thing has become so silly and blown out of proportion by a hyper sensitive few that it felt good to sit with Gene man to man and explain this clearly (something I asked Paul to do the last time I ever spoke with him and never happened). Gene claimed he has no issue at all with me and is very happy doing what he is doing, and then in typical Gene fashion started quoting how good business is LOL. I explained to Gene if he has no issue he should come back on my shows where his fans want to see and hear him and have a respectful discussion. He said he would not rule it out and as has always been the case my door is open to all past and present members of the band. I honestly don’t know anyone who loves every single thing any band they ever loved has done, and I pride myself on giving my honest opinion when asked.I have no idea if anything will change but I’m glad I was able to sit with Gene, who I have known a long time and who also loves to speak his mind, and have a discussion. I may not be a fan of what the band currently does but respect their right to do it and Gene’s willingness to sit and chat like two adults.
