Coldplay have currently been demo-ing new songs for the follow up to their mega successful, Viva La Vida or Death and All of His Friends. The band who is currently on holiday before heading over to Latin America, were hoping to have a follow up record out this year, but with their massive touring schedule, the band will record in 2010.
Just after his brother announced his solo plans for the new year, Oasis front man Liam Gallagher is also saying he will continue to go forward in music. However, Liam will form a new band and make it not a solo project, but a totally new act. No word yet on who he is playing with.
Jack White's Dead Weather will record the follow up to their debut Horehound in December.
To celebrate 25 years of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a two night bash just went off at Madison Square Garden and it seemed to be the concert event of the decade. With night one featuring Bruce Springsteen and special guest Billy Joel and Darlene Love as the headline. It also had, what could be, the final performance of Simon and Garfunkle. Night two was highlighted with sets from Lou Reed, Metallica being joined by Ozzy Osborn and U2 bringing out Black Eyed Peas, Springsteen and Mick Jagger. This concert will air on HBO later this month.
