A new box set featuring all of studio albums The Eagles released during their 1970s heyday is scheduled to hit stores on April 2.
‘Eagles: The Studio Albums 1972-1979’ is a no-frills collection that gathers the band’s first six records —1972′s ‘Eagles,’ 1973′s ‘Desperado,’ 1974′s ‘On the Border,’ 1975′s ‘One of These Nights,’ 1976′s ‘Hotel California’ and 1979′s ‘The Long Run.’
The discs are packaged in a black clamshell box, with each CD housed in paper jacket that replicates the original album art. The box set is priced at $39.99.
Meanwhile, all of the current Eagles members will travel to the U.K. next month for the British premiere of the group’s new documentary, ‘History of the Eagles Part One.’
The screening will be held April 25 at the second annual Sundance London Film and Music Festival at London’s O2 complex.
Jimi Hendrix may be set for his highest-charting album in 44 years, according to Billboard.
The new archival album ‘People, Hell and Angels’ is set to debut at No. 2 on this week's Billboard 200 chart, according to industry sources. The album might sell around 70,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on March 10.
The new Billboard 200 chart's top 10 will be revealed on the morning of March 13.
If the title opens at No. 2, it will mark Hendrix' highest-charting album since 1968, when ‘Electric Ladyland’ spent two weeks at No. 1.
Heart have found big success with their version of Led Zeppelin’s ‘Stairway to Heaven.’
The band performed the epic at the Kennedy Center Honors last December and brought the house down and tears to the eyes of singer Robert Plant who was in the audience along with guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist-keyboardist John Paul Jones.
Following that reception, the video of Heart's performance lead to more than six million YouTube hits and an iTunes version went to No. 1 on the rock singles charts.
"It was the best thing that could have happened to us," says Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson, 58, from her California home before the band begins its cross-Canada tour.
Last week the Toronto Sun ran a story about how The Who’s Pete Townshend mouthed “f--- off” toward a dad with a seven-year-old daughter on his shoulders at the Quadrophenia performance at Copps Coliseum in Hamilton.
Eric Costello and his daughter Janey had moved toward the stage with a sign that said “Smash your guitar, Pete.”
The guitarist and songwriter seemed irritated and a YouTube video shows him mouthing the epithet.
Now a contrite Townshend has issued a personal apology.
“Apologies and condolences from my side, and very best wishes to you and your family,” Townshend wrote in a personal letter to Costello Thursday, asking if they could “meet and be friends and put this behind us?"
Boy if that's all you gotta do to be friends with Pete I'll flood him with emails asking him to smash his guitar!
