The big music news of the week (maybe year) is that Pink Floyd will release a new album on November 10. This will be Pink Floyd's first album of new material in two decades. The album will also feature keyboardist Richard Wright, who died several years ago. Here's the AP wire announcing the news:

NEW YORK (AP) — Pink Floyd's new album will arrive on Nov. 10.

Monday news release gives fresh details about The Endless River, the British rock 'n' roll group's first new material in 20 years.

The 18-song double album features band members David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright, who died in 2008. Roger Waters left the group in 1985 and isn't involved.

The album was assembled from 20 hours of material recorded during the band's 1993 sessions for "The Division Bell."

Gilmour says in the release that the band "added new parts, rerecorded others and generally harnessed studio technology to make a 21st-century Pink Floyd album."

"The Endless River" is comprised mostly of instrumental music with just one song, "Louder Than Words," that includes new lyrics, written by Gilmour's wife, Polly Samson.

Shaquille O'Neal Belts Out Bon Jovi

Shaquille O'Neal was at an LSU sports bar earlier this week. Karaoke happened...and of course the basketball star had to belt out some classic Bon Jovi. The performance of "You Give Love A Bad Name" is kind of a debacle, but I think the college kids had a blast... after all, Shaq was an LSU student himself a few years ago!

SIXX: A.M. just released the lyric video for "Stars" from their upcoming album Modern Vintage due October 7. In a recent interview, singer James Michael promised a big tour to support the new record. I certainly hope the band comes to a venue near me. I saw SIXX: A.M. once on the first Crue Fest (front row!) - it was pretty cool.

What The Heck Is Diet Rock?

Posted on Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments28 Comments

Check it: my boys Nickelback just released a video for their new song "Edge of a Revolution." The video is good: very glossy, you can tell it cost some cash. No big deal since the guys in Nickelback are loaded. Plus they are a hit machine. Anyway, I was reading Blabbermouth comments about the video (I know, I know) and people kept calling them "bro rock"and "diet rock" I have never heard the phrase diet rock... ever. What does that even mean? Someone please enlighten me.

Nickelback will release their new album, No Fixed Address, on November 18. They plan to tour in 2015 -- and I'll totally be in the crowd at one of their shows.
