First Official Kurt Cobain Documentary to Air on HBO in 2015


Image Courtesy of Universal Music Group - Anton CorbijnThe first fully-authorized documentary on Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain is coming next year. Entitled Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, the documentary will be the first made with the full cooperation of Cobain's family."[Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck] is a raw and visceral journey through Cobain’s life and provides no-holds-barred access to Kurt Cobain’s archives, home to his never-before-seen home movies, recordings, artwork, photography, journals, demos, personal archives, family archives and songbooks," reads a press release. The statement also promises the film will contain Nirvana songs and performances, as well as never-before-heard Cobain originals.Oscar-nominated filmmaker Brett Morgen, who directed the Rolling Stones documentary Crossfire Hurricane, will write, direct and produce Montage of Heck. Cobain's daughter, visual artist Francis Bean Cobain, will be the film's executive producer."I started work on this project eight years ago," says Morgen. "Like most people, when I started, I figured there would be limited amounts of fresh material to unearth. However, once I stepped into Kurt’s archive, I discovered over 200 hours of unreleased music and audio, a vast array of art projects (oil paintings, sculptures), countless hours of never-before-seen home movies, and over 4000 pages of writings that together help paint an intimate portrait of an artist who rarely revealed himself to the media."Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, which was most likely titled for the recently re-discovered Cobain mixtape of the same name, will air on HBO next year.Follow --ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Dave Grohl Remembers Jamming with Prince


Image Courtesy of ABC/Travis BellRemember when Prince covered the Foo Fighters song "Best of You" during the 2007 Super Bowl halftime show?  As it turns out, that wasn't the last time Dave Grohl and the Purple One have crossed paths."Three years ago, Prince books 21 nights at the Forum [in Los Angeles].  I can't f**king wait.  I go to the first show, in a party bus with all my friends, boozing it up," Grohl tells Rolling Stone.  "I walk into the Forum Club and bump into somebody from a road crew I'd work[ed] with before.  He says, 'Prince knows you're here.  He wants to jam.'  The end of the night, I'm standing next to this black curtain.  I pull it back -- there's Prince with Sheila E.  I go, 'Hey, man, great show.'  He says, 'When do you want to jam?  How about Friday?'  All right, cool!"The next week, Grohl shows up at the Forum only to be told Prince was feeling under the weather. However, before he's about to leave, "Prince just appears," Grohl says, and invites Dave to play drums with his band."We start playing.  He's got the whole band up there, throwing chord changes with his fingers, conducting the band as we're jamming," Grohl remembers.  "I can't believe this is happening.  And it's happening in a completely empty Forum.  Then he puts on a guitar and starts playing [Led Zeppelin's] 'Whole Lotta Love'.  It's f**kin' bad-ass.  We do that for 10 minutes.  It slays.  He says, 'We should do that, man.  What are you doing next Friday?'""I never heard from Prince again," he says.  "But I swear it happened.  I swear.  And nobody saw it."Follow --ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Nickelback's Chad Kroeger Was "Inspired to Try Different Things" on "No Fixed Ad


Image Courtesy of Republic RecordsFoo Fighters may have gotten a lot of attention for recording their new album, Sonic Highways, in studios all across America, but Nickelback took that plan a step further with No Fixed Address. In recording their eighth album -- the band's first since 2011's Here and Now -- Nickelback visited studios from Vancouver and Los Angeles to Zurich and Budapest. Frontman Chad Kroeger tells ABC News Radio that the constant changes of scenery helped shaped the sound of No Fixed Address."It was incredibly beneficial," Kroeger says of recording in different locations. "That is my new favorite way to create music, just not [to] be in the same place and not fall into a stagnant rut, and it definitely inspires you to try different things."One of those different things was "Edge of a Revolution" -- the first single released from No Fixed Address. The track is Nickelback's first big foray into political lyrics, while also retaining the band's heavier sound from previous albums."It's nice to hear the band getting back to some hard rock roots," says Kroeger of "Edge of a Revolution." "And it's subject matter that we've never really touched on before, so I think it's a win-win all the way around."Even with the track's lyrical content, guitarist Ryan Peake doesn't see Nickelback as a "political" band."I don't think anybody's going to confuse us with putting out a rally cry to do these things," he tells ABC News Radio. "I think it's more just kind of a snapshot of what's going on in general."That snapshot comments on the world of government and finance with lyrics like "Your secret's safe with the NSA" and "Wall Street, common thief.""It's not about a specific thing, even though we were talking about a few things as examples, but it's just people getting upset," Peake says. "I don't think that's a problem, as long as it's focused, as long as it's justified, and not just the certain mob mentalities and stuff. But people do need to pay attention these days." No Fixed Address, featuring "Edge of a Revolution," is out now.Follow --ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Sammy Hagar Says He "Was Honored" to Be Asked to Appear on "The Simpsons"


2014 TCFFC/FoxSammy Hagar will join an illustrious list of fellow rock stars when he appears tonight in cartoon form on The Simpsons.  The Red Rocker's voice and animated likeness will be featured in an episode titled "Covercraft," in which Homer -- suffering from a mid-life crisis after Moe's bar closes -- becomes the bassist in a cover band with some other local dads.Hagar says he jumped at the chance when he was asked to take part in the show, which in the past has featured cameos by such music legends as Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, The Who and Michael Jackson."I liked the list of people that have done it before me, and I was honored," Sammy explained during a press teleconference held Thursday.  He added that he also was excited because it gave him the opportunity to do "something new, something different."He also noted that he enjoyed doing the show because he got the chance to ham it up. "I liked being a little bit of a caricature of myself," he said.  "I get to overdo it, and every time I overdo it around the house, you know, I get criticism from my kids and stuff.  So it's really nice to be able to overdo it and get away with it."One thing Hagar wasn't too pleased with was the way he looked as a cartoon character."I don't think anyone can relate to themselves as a Simpson," he said with a laugh.  "When I saw it I went, 'Whoa!  Hey!  Hold on here.'  You know, it's pretty funny but, like I said, I can't relate too much to the character except…they got my tennis shoes really right and they got my…flower shirt…my kind of semi-Hawaiian lifestyle look…But [I] couldn't relate to the body and face look."Besides that, Hagar said he was so happy with his Simpsons experience that it made him want to become a full-time cast member."It made me want to do voice-overs," he explained.  "I told the guys after I did it…I said, 'Hey man, invent a permanent Simpson character for me and I'll do it.'…I'm telling you, it was really, really fun."Sammy revealed that at this stage in his career, he's very interested in trying things he hasn't done before, so beyond doing voice-overs he'd like to try his hand at acting in a film."I'd love to have a bit part in a movie," he said.  "Not like a star, but I would love to…try some things like that, where I can be some other character.  I'm tired of being Sammy, you know what I mean?"You can check out a video featuring behind-the-scenes footage of Hagar recording his Simpsons cameo on RollingStone.com.  The Simpsons airs Sundays on Fox at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Radiohead Is Recording a New Album


Image Courtesy of Sebastian EdgeEarlier this year, Radiohead's Johnny Greenwood said that the band would start working on their next album in September. Well, September has come and gone without any news, save for a surprise Thom Yorke solo album on BitTorrent. Not to worry, though -- Greenwood has confirmed that Radiohead is currently in the studio."We're currently playing and recording," he tells BBC Radio Oxford. "It's fun to see everyone again, it's been a long time coming, we've been waiting all of us for a long time."Greenwood says he and the band doesn't really know what the new album will sound like, as the album is in the very early stages of the writing and recording process.“I always feel as when we start up like we still don’t know really how to do it, and we don’t know quite what to do," he says. "'Looking down avenues' is a very kind way of putting the kind of fumbling that we do, mainly because every time we try and do it like the last time because that worked, it never seems to work. So we talk about different approaches and we’re currently trying a bunch out."The prospective new Radiohead album will be the band's first since 2011's King of Limbs. Greenwood, meanwhile, wrote the score for the upcoming Paul Thomas Anderson film, Inherent Vice.

The band played The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, performing their New Orleans-inspired song "In the Clear" in support of their new album, Sonic Highways."Our next guests are one of the greatest bands in rock 'n' roll," Ellen DeGeneres said in introducing the band.

This week's episode, airing November 21, will profile New Orleans and feature the song "In the Clear." After the New Orleans episode, the series only has two episodes left. Next week's will focus on Seattle, while the finale, airing on December 5, will bring the Foos to New York City.The Sonic Highways album, released last week, debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 and number one on the Top Rock Albums chart. Every one of the Foo Fighters' albums, except for the band's self-titled debut, have peaked in the top 10 on the Billboard 200.Follow --ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Dave Grohl Says "People Have Forgotten What It's Like to Really Rock Out" Becaus


Image Courtesy of ABCDave Grohl isn't the biggest fan of technology. At the 2012 Grammys, Grohl famously said, "The human element of music is what's important," and later clarified that statement by saying, "Some of these great advances [in technology] have taken the focus off of the actual craft of performance." Now, he says that computers have made us forget one important thing: how to rock out."People have forgotten what it’s like to really rock out because they spend all day in front of a freakin’ computer, which they hail as the new god," he tells Red Bulletin. They seriously think technology can make them rich, if they stumble on something new. But I’m telling you: technology might make you rich, yet it will never make you happy."If you share Grohl's anti-computer stance, you may also appreciate his "Beat the Bots Box-Office Only" pre-sale for the upcoming 2015 Foo Fighters tour. The idea is to combat online ticket scalpers by having people physically line up at box offices around the country.

Hear Faith No More's First New Music in 17 Years


Image Courtesy of Margaret BandaFaith No More has unveiled their first new song in 17 years. The new single, which is less than tastefully titled "Motherf**ker, will appear on the band's upcoming studio album, which will be released in 2015."It feels apt that the first track we're releasing is 'Motherf**ker,' a song about accountability," says keyboardist Roddy Bottum in a statement. "Basically we've created, recorded and mixed a new body of work by ourselves and we're releasing it on our own label.
