Robert Plant May End Career With New Album

Legendary Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant has hinted in a new interview that his upcoming solo album, 'lullaby … And the Ceaseless Roar' maybe be his final release and mark the end of his career. Plant surprised The Independent's James McNair when he made the following proclamation at the end of their conversation, "And maybe this new album is the end now for me." McNair followed up and asked "Really? The end of what?" and Plant responded, "Of this musical wanderlust and the wonderful carousel that I've been on. "It's like a kaleidoscope: you hold it up to the light, rotate it, and the pieces fall beautifully in different ways, but this record feels different. It's a consummation of all those bits from Son House to Roni Size to the Gambia and it seems to have some sort of finality." The new album is set to be released on September 9th and Plant has lined up a handful of dates to support the trek including a show in London and four North American dates.

Led Zeppelin Scores Greatest Guitar Riff Of All Time

(hennemusic) Led Zeppelin's 1969 classic, "Whole Lotta Love", has been voted the greatest guitar riff of all time by listeners of BBC Radio 2. The BBC reports the track topped the list of songs ahead of tunes by Guns N' Roses, AC/DC , Deep Purple and others. Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page said he was "knocked out" by winning the vote. "I wanted a riff that really moved, that people would really get, and would bring a smile to their faces, but when I played it with the band, it really went into overdrive," he said. "There was this intent to have this riff and the movement of it, so it was menacing as well as quite sort of caressing." "Whole Lotta Love" was the opening track on Led Zeppelin's 1969 sophomore release, "Led Zepplin II." The single peaked at No. 4 on the US Billboard Hot 100 on its way to selling a million copies Stateside and becoming the group's only US Top 10 single.

John Lennon's Killer Mark David Chapman Denied Parole

(TeamRock Radio) Mark David Chapman, that man who shot and killed John Lennon in 1980, has been denied parole for the eighth time. Chapman may apply again in two years' time. The killer, now 59, gunned down the ex-Beatle outside his New York apartment as he and wife Yoko Ono were returning home from a recording session. He was later handed a sentence of 20 years to life. The three-man parole board noted that Ono had once again sent a letter asking that Chapman was not released - but that, along with others letters supporting her position, they'd also received notes from those who believed he should be granted freedom.

"There will be another tour and I will be on that," Rudd told the Nine Network while promoting his new solo record, "Head Job." "We will probably all have to be dead before it stops," he added. AC/DC recently completed recording a new album in Vancouver without founding member Malcolm Young, who remains in hospital to address some health issues; his nephew, Stevie, handled rhythm guitar during the sessions in Malcolm's absence
