On January 20, 2014 Ringo Starr’s musical legacy was celebrated when The David Lynch Foundation honored him with the ‘Lifetime of Peace & Love Award’. The event included star-studded tributes to Ringo’s extensive catalog that was broadcast on AXS July 13, 2014.  Participating artists included Joe Walsh, Ben Harper, Ben Folds, Brendan Benson, Bettye LaVette, The Head & The Heart and Jesse Elliot and Lindsey McWilliams of Ark Life, with an equally stellar backing band featuring Don Was, Benmont Tench, Peter Frampton, Steve Lukather and Kenny Arnoff.  (
January 26 saw Ringo perform his song “Photograph” on the GRAMMYS, followed by him jumping on the kit during his old band mate, Paul McCartney’s performance. Ringo & Paul then performed together again the following evening, this time playing several songs for the Emmy Award-nominated taping of CBS’ “The Beatles, A Grammy Salute; The Night That Changed America,” celebrating the 50th Anniversary of their first U.S. visit and appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show.  It was broadcast on the exact anniversary, February 9, and aired again February 12. It has also been broadcast internationally.
In February 2014, Simon & Shuster published “Octopus’s Garden”, a children’s book based on Ringo’s lyrics. This book arrived on the heels of December of last year’s PHOTOGRAPH, the Genesis Publications book  ( PHOTOGRAPH was first released as an e-book in conjunction with The GRAMMY Museum exhibit “Ringo: Peace & Love,” a record-breaking exhibit that drew over 120,000 visitors in its run from June 2013 to late April 2014. It was also the first ever major exhibit to focus on a drummer.
On July 7 John Varvatos announced that Ringo would be featured in his Fall 2014 advertising campaign and as Ringo joked,  “making his dream to be a male model come true.” The campaign also benefited the David Lynch Foundation with a dynamic social media component in which fans were called to upload a photo of themselves making the peace sign and tagging the post with #peacerocks. For each photo tagged, John Varvatos donates a dollar to the Foundation.
Summer & October 2014 saw Ringo tour North America with his All Starr Band, the same line up since 2012 who also toured in 2013 the Pacific Rim in February and then in October in Latin America, concluding with two Stateside shows at the Palms in Las Vegas. The summer tour also included exhibits of Ringo’s artwork, which can be seen at In September 2013 Ringo was awarded the prestigious French Medal of Honor, being appointed Commander of Arts & Letters in recognition of his musical and artistic contributions. Ringo’s most recent solo release was Ringo 2012 (Hip-O Records/UMe). In January 2013 UMe released the live DVD “Ringo at the Ryman.”  April 20, 2013, in conjunction with Record Store Day, UMe released a Ringo Starr seven-inch vinyl singles collection, featuring “Photograph,” “It Don’t Come Easy” and “(It’s All Down To) Goodnight Vienna.”

Murder-for-Hire Charges Against AC/DC Drummer Phil Rudd Have Been Dropped

Read More: Murder-for-Hire Charges Against AC/DC’s Phil Rudd Dropped |

A major development in the rock story that has dominated the headlines over the past 24 hours, as the shocking murder-for-hire charges against AC/DC‘s Phil Rudd have now been dropped due to “insufficient evidence.”

However, the drummer is not out of the woods yet as he still faces charges of “threatening to kill,” as well as possession of methamphetamine and marijuana.

The AC/DC stickman had been accused of attempting to hire a hit man to kill two men, but the lead prosecutor in the case now says that the charges of attempting to procure murder (murder-for-hire) was without merit.

According to the Associated Press, Tauranga Crown Solicitor Greg Hollister-Jones said his prosecution office had been given the case after Rudd had been charged by police and taken into court. “The file was obtained today and reviewed,” Hollister-Jones revealed on Friday, adding, “There was insufficient evidence to proceed with the charge of attempting to procure murder.”

Meanwhile, Rudd’s lawyer Paul Mabey is infuriated, stating, “Mr. Rudd has suffered unnecessary and extremely damaging publicity as a result of widespread and sensational reporting of a very serious allegation, which on any basis was never justified. The damage to Mr. Rudd is incalculable.”

Mabey adds that the two drug offenses are “minor” and that Rudd will fight the “threatening to kill” charge, for which he faces up to seven years in prison if found guilty.

Earlier today, AC/DC issued a statement saying, “We’ve only become aware of Phil’s arrest as the news was breaking. We have no further comment. Phil’s absence will not affect the release of our new album Rock or Bust and upcoming tour next year.”

Stay tuned as more news develops in this ever-changing story.

NAPALM DEATH And VOIVOD To Join Forces For North American ‘Through Space And Grind’ 2015 Tour

and VOIVOD will join forces for a North American tour, aptly dubbed “Through Space And Grind”, in January/February.

Said NAPALM DEATH frontman Mark “Barney” Greenway: “As a celebration of both the unconventional and more straight-out methods of musical attack, I think this tour lineup really hits home.

“To think that 30 years ago I was marveling at the savage eccentricities of ‘War And Pain’ and now I’m sharing stage / living space with Snake, Away and co… surreal, almost.

“From NAPALM‘s perspective, we’ll bring the overdrive to the spaciness. It’s all going to rage whichever way you slice it.”

Added VOIVOD drummer Michel “Away” Langevin: “I am psyched to tour North America with NAPALM DEATH, for which I always had a huge respect. We crossed path over the years and finally we’ll get to unite VOIVOD‘s spacy thrash metal with NAPALM‘s grindcore. A perfect combination!!”

Papa Roach + Seether Announce Co-Headlining 2015 U.S. Tour

Two of rock’s powerhouse bands are teaming up to co-headline a U.S. trek in early 2015. Papa Roach and Seether will embark on a trek together in January, and they’re bringing support acts Islander and Kyng on the road with them.

The monthlong trek kicks off Jan. 9 in Myrtle Beach, S.C., and runs through a Feb. 7 show in Las Vegas. Tickets go on sale this Friday (Nov. 7), with a presale starting Thursday (Nov. 6). Ticket info will be posted at and

We just spoke with Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix and Seether bassist Dale Stewart about the trek, and both musicians are excited to hit the road.

Shaddix tells us, “It’s gonna be bangin’, man. I’m excited by the opening bands, too. Kyng were suggested by Seether, and I was like, ‘I don’t know anything about this band Kyng, let me go check them out.’ And they’re f–kin’ badass. Just a killer band. We picked this band Islander to come out, and they got this song ‘Coconut Dracula’ that just has a cool vibe. And Seether, you know, these guys just have hit after hit after hit. It’s gonna be a great night of rock music.”

Stewart adds, “I think it’s just a good rock show. Each band on the bill is really good live. Everyone is really gonna bring it. When we play with Papa Roach, we have to try that much harder because they have such a killer live show. I think it’s gonna be a lot of good bands and a lot of good music. I think all the bands complement each other really well.”

Separately, in a press release, Seether frontman Shaun Morgan says, “We’re really looking forward to going back out with our good friends Papa Roach and we’re super excited to be bringing out our buddies Kyng and newcomers Islander, too.”

Papa Roach will release their new album, ‘F.E.A.R.,’ on Jan. 27, while Seether will be out in support of their ‘Isolate and Medicate’ album, which arrived in July of this year. Check out the full list of tour dates below:
