The Allman Brothers announced 6 shows at New York's Beacon Theaterthis October to make up for the string of canceled shows last spring, but then they made a bigger announcement... This will be the end of The Allman Brothers. They have decided to call it quits after October. The band was already losing their guitarists Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes at the end of 2014, so the band's future was already uncertain. The four make-up shows will happen on October 21st, 22nd, 24th and 25th. They've also tacked on shows on the 27th and 28th just to give fans a chance to catch them one last time.

 

Steve Perry randomly popped up in St. Paul, MN at an Eels show over the weekend and performed infront of an audience for the first time in about 19 years. He sang an Eels song (with a special dirty word throughout, in case you want to watch it at work) and then he lunched into "Open Arms" and "Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'." The voice has aged, but he was classic Perry. In recent years Perry has taken baby steps out into the public, which makes people wonder if he's slowly preparing himself for something bigger. Check out his performance here - if you need to skip the NSFW stuff head to the 4:00 mark.

If you know your rock, it's no secret that there are crazy similarities between Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" and the instrumental "Taurus" by Spirit, but they've never filed a copyright infringement case.  That could change. An article in Bloomberg Businessweek suggests that Jimmy Page may have borrowed a riff from 1968's "Taurus" to create the opening of "Stairway" in 1970. Spirit bassist, Mark Andes, says the two bands played several shows together in 1969 and he believes Page heard them doing "Taurus." Spirit guitarist Randy California, who wrote "Taurus," said, "It was a ripoff and the guys made millions of bucks on it and never said ‘Thank you,’ never said, ‘Can we pay you some money for it?’ It’s kind of a sore point with me. Maybe someday their conscience will make them do something about it.” California died in 1997 and now Andes is working with a legal team. Check out the two songs and decide for yourself...
