WOLF-HUNTING STONES

Still deciding on how to celebrate THE ROLLING STONES’ 40th Anniversary, the Glimmer Twins Mick Jagger and Keith Richards joined the ranks of the guest musicians on “Sleepless”, the new solo album by ex-J. GEILS BAND vocalist Peter Wolf. Keef provided his licks for “Too Close Together” and The Lips’ voice is heard on “Nothing But The Wheel”. The album is scheduled for August release.

ANOTHER PAGE FOR A GUITAR MAN

While Robert Plant is reluctantly revealing details of his upcoming album, his LED ZEPPELIN partner, Jimmy Page, together with wife Jimena, is back to the charity field. On May 8th in Florida, the master guitarist will be hosting the second annual Action For Brazil’s Children (ABC) dinner and auction. Though his six-string axe is hardly to be out of its case, Page’s arranging an array of star guests.

A TRUE BELIEVER

Jason Becker, who’s suffering from the Lou Gehrig’s disease and had been paid a loving Reviews18#”> recently, knows what a pain is. So it’s touching that this great guitarist has donated a song to an album benefitting the families of September 11th victims. The song called “Believe” is an old Jason’s recording with Mike Bemesderfer’s overdubs. Moreover, currently Becker is working on a new CD with a working title of “Volume II – The Blackberry Jams – Perpetual Burn Demos and Never Heard Music on Guitar” to be released on Shrapnel Records.

PHENOMENAL FANTASY

It was reported before that Tom Galley has the fourth PHENOMENA album in the works. Now there’s a tentative title to it, “Psychofantasy”, and a song list. Songs are six:
Sixty Seconds, Crazy House, Sunrise, Angels Don’t Cry, Crazy Grooves, Killing For The Thrill,
and the still unconfirmed singers should be Tony Martin of BLACK SABBATH fame, GO WEST’s Peter Cox and Lee Small from NATIVE CAIN.

EXTRA TEXTURE

“Harrison”, the title says it all. There’s a book compiled by the editors of “Rolling Stone” magazine about the great late George Harrison, whose life is told on the pages through more than a hundred pictures spread over a sixty-page gallery, news stories and interviews from the pages of “Rolling Stone”.
