The Black Keys have logged 54 shows already this year, and they’re only halfway through their planned tour schedule in support of ‘El Camino.’ There are plenty of festival dates — such as Catalpa in New York, Firefly in Delaware, Lollapalooza in Chicago and Austin City Limits — on the horizon. Despite all that current and future touring, drummer Patrick Carney reveals that the band was flashed by a fan for the very first time while on their current run of dates.
The 10th annual tribute to the late, great Alice in Chains vocalist Layne Staley, who passed away in April 2002 at the tender age of 34 after years of addiction struggles, is set for this August in the Seattle/Tacoma area.

The three stolen gold-and-diamond necklaces were returned to the Guns N’ Roses singer after the thief, who admitted to mistakenly stealing the baubles, was taken into custody.
Former Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar weighed in on the recent VH controversy, in which the band postponed 31 scheduled shows this summer without a specified reason. The rumor mill suggested that things had gotten contentious between the members once again. Since Hagar was a part of the band for a lengthy period of time, he’s well aware of the inner workings.
Slash really does his best to help foster the talent of tomorrow and give aspiring musicians a fighting chance in the uphill battle known as the music industry.
