If there’s a lesson to be learned from the last few days in the saga of the Beach Boys, it’s that when dealing with conflict, it’s probably best to just sit down and talk about it, rather than release competing articles in the Los Angeles Times and make us feel sad for everyone involved.
Last week, Beach Boy Mike Love (who, like Axl Rose before him, controls the rights to the name of the band that made him famous) wrote a lengthy piece in the Times about how, contrary to the reports in the mean old media, he did not “fire” Brian Wilson from the group for a run of tour dates in the fall.
Not to be outdone, Wilson countered with a lengthy newspaper-hosted diatribe of his own this morning. “As far as I know I can’t be fired—that wouldn’t be cool,” Wilson wrote. “The negativity surrounding all the comments bummed me out. What’s confusing is that by Mike not wanting or letting Al, David and me tour with the band, it sort of feels like we’re being fired.” READ FULL STORY
George Michael is canceling Australian shows so he can get treatment for major anxiety he’s suffered since a serious health scare last year.
The singer said on his website he had hoped making music and performing would be enough to work through it but that he underestimated how hard his recovery would be. READ FULL STORY
Summer is over, which means that the days are getting shorter, the weather is chillier, and the relationships between members of the Beach Boys are pretty much falling apart.
The Beach Boys’ 50th anniversary reunion tour is wrapping up in London this week, though “The Beach Boys” will continue to tour throughout the fall. The twist? Mike Love, who controls the rights to the group’s name, is sending home cornerstone member Brian Wilson, along with fellow Boys Al Jardine and David Marks.
Love will be touring as the Beach Boys with Bruce Johnson and a back-up band that may or may not include Uncle Jesse.
“I’m disappointed and can’t understand why he doesn’t want to tour with Al, David and me,” Wilson told CNN. “We are out there having so much fun. After all, we are the real Beach Boys.”
The announcement came just after the group celebrated the opening of an exhibit dedicated to their five decade career at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.

The 18-city trek kicks off on Jan. 17 at the House of Blues in Houston, and includes stops at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall and the Hollywood Palladium. Sheeran’s current road trip—VH1’s You Oughta Know Tour, which continues through mid-October—is already fully sold out, with many shows being moved to larger venues.
Sheeran will also appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Oct. 4 to perform his current single, “The A Team,” currently climbing the charts (it also has more than 43 million views on YouTube).
Fans will get even more of Sheeran when Taylor Swift’s new album, Red, arrives Oct. 22.
But for now, check out this exclusive video of Sheeran performing his percussive “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You” live at London’s Shepard’s Bush Empire, and find the tour’s full itinerary after the jump:
Good news, fans of Nastradamus and The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill: The biggest tour of 1999 has finally arrived!
In all seriousness, October 6 marks the kick-off of an historic trek. The “Life Is Good/Black Rage” tour features co-headliners Nas (he of the recently-released tenth solo album Life is Good) and Lauryn Hill (she of the forthcoming single “Black Rage,” multiple horror stories in the new Wyclef memoir, and quite a big tax bill).
Nas kicks the tour off by himself but will be joined by Hill for 10 shows, starting with a stop in Dallas on October 29. The whole thing ends on December 31 with a Nas solo show on New Year’s Even at New York’s legendary Radio City Music Hall.
Of course, perhaps the bigger story here is the fact that Hill is promising a new single. READ FULL STORY
Labor Day weekend is a time for rest, though Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong got more rest than he bargained for on Sunday.
While on tour in Italy, Armstrong was rushed to the hospital, forcing the group to cancel a performance in Bologna.
The other two members of the band, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool, took to YouTube to post a video apology to the fans who were looking forward to the show at the I-Day Festival. Check out their comments below.
In the past, guitar icon Eddie Van Halen has attributed many of his headaches on Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth; his latest ailment, though, owes less to the one they call Diamond than to sheer unfortunate luck.
According to the Van Halen website, Eddie underwent emergency surgery for “a severe bout of diverticulitis,” a disease that causes painful inflammation in the intestines. “No further surgeries are needed and a full recovery is expected within 4-6 months,” the site said.
The band has been forced to reschedule an entire tour of Japan that was supposed to begin in November. The new dates will be some time in 2013.
It’s been a year of ups and downs for the legendary — and legendarily troubled — rockers: After putting out a largely excellent comeback album, the band inexplicably cancelled 32 dates back in June. (They said in later interviews that they had simply overextended themselves, and that everybody was still getting along and in good health.)
Eddie, who is 57, has had a number of physical woes that have gotten in the way of his latter-day career, and has undergone a number of treatments for major problems, including hip-replacement surgery and an operation to remove a third of his tongue due to cancer.
