Soundgarden are looking for help from their fans. They are looking for memorabilia on the band to be featured in a documentary film about them by Banger Films. Fans with items they think could be of interest are asked to send a description of what they have to email@example.com with the subject ‘Soundgarden Fan Submission.’
U2 announced dates for their Innocence And Experience Tour. You can get them here:http://www.u2.com/tour. I do find it interesting that they went from stadiums to arenas in a short time. Just something to ponder.
In January, Iron Maiden will be releasing their beer called The Trooper in the U.S. It will be the Tall Boy can. Can’t wait to try it as it was a huge success in the U.K.

Alan Parsons Project announced some tour dates, a first in a long time. You can get them here: http://www.alanparsonsmusic.com/live.html
If your are looking for something new in the alternative metal vein, then may I suggest to you the band, Plain, from Oslo, Norway. Here is their Reverbnation page. Check them out: http://www.reverbnation.com/plainoslo
Chris Martin, frontman of Coldplay, said their next album may be their last. I for one hope that is true. It would make me happy not to have them pollute the airwaves. Never was a fan.
Last week’s Rockucation question was: Before forming Electric Light Orchestra, Jeff Lynne, Bev Bevan and Roy Wood were in what band? The answer was the Move and was given to us from David Englund of Warwick, RI
Super group Devil City Angels is offering pre-order packages for their debut. You can check them out here: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/devilcityangels?utm_campaign=project10265&utm_medium=player&utm_source=facebook
I know this isn’t rock or metal but I never saw anyone use a piano in this fashion, so I thought I would share. Mario Mariani is the artist. Check out how he uses the piano and let me know what you think. This one is called Beetlejuice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSeWriBgiok#t=78
Lillian Axe guitarist, Jon Ster, has passed at the age of 52 from heart failure. RIP!
Here is a band out of Madison, Wisconsin. The band is Versus Me. They have a new song called (A) Tension. It’s like pop meets thrash. Listen all the way through, I think you will be surprised. Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QU2eppsJLxk
Phil Rudd was arrested again for making a threat to kill a father and daughter of a construction company. I doubt you will be seeing him on any future AC/DC projects whatsoever.

This week’s Rockucation question is: This guitarist in the only musician to be inducted three times, in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. He was inducted with two bands and as a solo artist. Who is he and what two bands was he in?
