Chad Kroeger and Wife Are Not Splitting Up, Despite Rumors


Sara De Boer/STARTRAKS PHOTO via ABCDon't believe the rumors: Nickelback's Chad Kroeger and his wife, pop star Avril Lavigne, aren't breaking up.A source tells US Weekly magazine that Chad "has been going around and telling people that they're divorcing," and the magazine also points to the fact that Avril was spotted August 30 without her wedding ring as further evidence.However, a source close to the Canadian couple tells ABC News Radio that the couple is fine and denies the divorce story.  The two married July 1, 2013, in France.  It was the one-year anniversary of their first date, which was also, appropriately enough, Canada Day.  It was Avril's second marriage; Chad's first.  She was previously married to Sum 41's Deryck Whibley.Chad and Nickelback will release a new album, No Fixed Address, on November 4.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

KISS Raises $1 Million for Renovation of Military Museum


Brian LoweIt isn't often KISS goes without makeup for a live show these days, but the band made an exception, playing an acoustic gig to raise money for a military museum in Oregon.The group previously has supported the Historical Outreach Foundation in its goal of raising $15 million to renovate the Oregon Military Museum, but the foundation's event this past Sunday in Lake Oswego, Oregon, marked the first time the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers performed at one of the foundation's events. In all, KISS helped raise $1 million toward the endeavor. Tickets to the evening cost $2,500. The evening also auctioned off one of Paul Stanley's guitars, which he has played since 1989, for $20,000, reports The Oregonian.KISS guitarist and native Oregonian Tommy Thayer is the link to the project. The museum will be named after Thayer's father, Brigadier General James B. Thayer, a 93-year-old World War II veteran who freed Holocaust survivors from the Nazi concentration camps in 1945.KISS bassist Gene Simmons told The Oregonian that museums are important to support for several reasons."A museum is a living history book, because young people today and the future generations can't just read books or watch it on video because it's unemotional," Simmons said.He continued that honoring the military with a museum shining a light on men and women in uniform is relevant to understanding current events."There is evil in the world," he said. "People are being beheaded today, not in some medieval time."Check out the set list from the show below:"Comin’ Home""Hard Luck Woman""Calling Dr. Love""Do You Love Me?""Plaster Caster""Shout It Out Loud""Got to Choose""Christine Sixteen""Lick It Up""Goin’ Blind""Love Her All I Can""Hide Your Heart""Beth""Rock and Roll All Nite"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

Joey Ramone's Friends and Family React to U2's Tribute Song


Image Courtesy Interscope RecordsFamily and friends of Joey Ramone have nothing but kind words for U2, who honored the late singer with the song "The Miracle (of Joey Ramone)," the lead single from the band's just-released album, Songs of Innocence."I’m not sure grateful is the right word, but awestruck is a better description,” Ramone's brother, Mickey Leigh, told MTV News."It’s so beautiful. I loved it. It’s Bono’s interpretation and his spirit, but it also captures Joey’s spirit," he said. "He described my brother’s spirit well. I think he got just what Joey would have wanted out of it.”Longtime Ramones drummer Marky Ramone felt the late singer would have been "honored" by the song, which never mentions his name, but tells the story of how Bono and the boys sneaked in to see the band in their teens in what was a life-changing event in their musical lives.Former D-Generation singer Jesse Malin, who became a close friend of The Ramones when the band took D-Gen out on tour, recalled the time the punk rocker called him out of a recording session and invited him to go see U2 at their appearance on Saturday Night Live in 2000."The thing I respect about U2 beyond this song is how they’re giving a shout-out to Joey as their inspiration,” he said. “They’re not on a bandwagon of ‘now we’ll be into the Ramones because they’re dead.’ He [Joey] got to feel the love and respect from them and this song is coming from truly the right place and I totally back it after seeing how they were with him.”Ramone passed away on April 15, 2001 of lymphoma at the age of 49; the last song he heard in the hospital was U2's "In a Little While."U2 paid their respects to the singer three days later during a show in San Diego, performing The Ramones' "I Remember You" and their own "Walk On" in his memory.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 No New Chickenfoot Album Now, but Has an Acoustic Record on the


Jay Blakesberg/UMeSammy Hagar is a busy man -- so busy, he says he doesn't have time right now to focus on one of his most popular music projects, the supergroup Chickenfoot."We're not making an album [now]," the Red Rocker tells ABC News Radio when asked about a follow-up to 2011's Chickenfoot III.  "[Guitarist] Joe [Satriani] and I are writing songs a little bit…We had a couple ideas, and Joe's got some fantastic musical ideas, and I'm just trying to find room in my life to do another Chickenfoot album."Hagar explains that if he commits doing a new Chickenfoot record, the band also would have to tour behind it, "and to do all of that, that's a year or more of my time.  And I just…love doing new things and I'm doing so much."Among those "new things" is the group Sammy put together for his recent "A Journey Through the History of Rock" trek, which includes Chickenfoot/ex-Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony, Led Zeppelin drummer Jason Bonham, and Wabos guitarist Vic Johnson.  The band will be playing next at Hagar's four-show Birthday Bash in October at his Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.The 66-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer also reveals that he has a new album on the way, an acoustic record he says he was inspired to do while putting together the star-studded Acoustic-4-a-Cure benefit concert earlier this year with Metallica's James Hetfield."Working up that set for myself, I learned how to play and sing acoustically, and I loved it so much I just took a bunch of my old songs and made a record called Light Roast," he tells ABC News Radio.  "It's an acoustically-brewed CD."About reworking the well-known songs from his back catalog as unplugged tunes, Sammy says, "Some of them I think are better than they've ever been like this."  The veteran rocker adds, however, that he has no intentions of doing an acoustic tour to support the album."You know, everyone says, 'Well, why don't you go out, just play like coffeehouses?'" says Hagar.  "Well, I'd love to but, you know, I'm busy."Hagar's next shows will be the aforementioned Birthday Bash performances, scheduled for October 7, 9, 11 and 13.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

Jack White Told Bob Dylan that Songwriting in Dylan's Era Was Like "Shooting Fis


Image Courtesy Mary Ellen MatthewsTonight's the night Jack White appears on Dan Rather's Big Interview, on cable's AXS channel. In an excerpt from the program streaming on Rolling Stone's website, White relates how he once told Bob Dylan he feels it was easier to be a songwriter back in Dylan's 1960s heyday. "It was kind of like shooting fish in a barrel [to write popular songs back then]," White says he told the legendary singer.  White goes on to explain there were so many important issues -- like the civil rights movement and the Vietnam war -- and that young people were looking for a voice as they became aware of what a messed-up place their world was, which in turn provided fertile ground for singer-songwriters.Today, however: "I hate to label the generation now 'entitled,'" White says, "but the sense of entitlement that's around nowadays...bugs me enough to want to overcome it.  I don't see beauty in teenagers all sitting next to each other texting and not talking to each other face-to-face."White goes on to say that he tries to capture "truth" and "beauty" in his songs, but that "it's a lot harder now" than it was back in Dylan's time.Dan Rather's Big Interview premieres tonight at 8 p.m. ET on AXS.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

Joan Jett Says She Has No "Mission"; Thinks Fans Respect Her Authenticity


Image Courtesy Roger EricksonIt's been a pretty gigantic year for Joan Jett. In April, Jett appeared onstage at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame awards ceremony, standing in for the late Kurt Cobain to play "Smells Like Teen Spirit" during Nirvana's performance. At the end of the same month, Jett made history by being the only female recipient of Revolver's Golden God award for "embody[ing] the spirit of hard rock and metal." In July, Jett received the Alternative Press' Icon Award and just last week news broke that Jett will be honored at this year's Little Kids Rock gala for being "an originator, an innovator and a visionary." Jett says she's grateful for all the accolades but when asked by ABC News Radio what she thinks is responsible for her longevity, she couldn't come up with any message or mission.Jett thinks her popularity is due to fans recognizing that she's doing what she loves. "I wanna play rock and roll, I think girls should be able to do that, and that was [my] initial thought," she says. "Why are people still into it? Maybe because it's genuine, and it's really about the connection between myself and the audience, and [giving] people a release for that bit of time, [so] they can just really enjoy it and not worry about the world for a minute.""Beyond that, I can't tell you," Jett claims. "Maybe there's an authenticity they sense? That I'm not into it for the money or the fame, particularly, though if those things come that's great. But you're into it for the music and the community and the connection, and how even though we're all so different, we're all so the same."The Little Kids Rock gala event honoring Jett and others will be held at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on October 23.
