Weekly Rock Wind Up (4/22)

Hello fans of my Weekly Rock Wind Up vlog. Here's an extended version of some of the news I covered in my video:

Elvis Presely's Graceland... Denmark?
A larger than the Memphis orginal Graceland estate opened inDenmark in the town of Randers and will be called Graceland Randers. This idea was developed by fan Henrick Knudsen and with the backing of Priscilla has a gift shop, restaurant and museum.

A one-two punch for the late great Johnny Cash!
His boyhood home will be saved. Arkansas State University purchased the Dyess, Arkansas house and plan to restore the home's structure and create a museum for it... AND it will be paid for by proceeds generated from an annual Johnny Cash Music Festival. Inagural festival is planned for August 4th at ASU's convention center and as of right now the growing list of performers include; Rosanne Cash, Tommy Cash, John Carter Cash, Rodney Crowell, George Jones, Garry Morris and Kris Kristofferson!

RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE confirming via their webpage they will be performing in LA on Saturday July 30th with Muse and Rise Against. No word on if this will mean new Rage but I do know I'll be in LA that weekend and plan on attending this show!!

Slash says as of now there's no plans for Velvet Revolver for at least 2 years. Yes, they did record a couple tracks with Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour) but other than that that's all it is. A small courting with no payoff.

Blink-182 canceling their tour plans for U.K. and Ireland to focus on their new album which they had hoped would be finished by the start of summer. This could be bad! Why else would the album not be finished other than they can't agree on it. More details as they unfold...

BeachBoys to reunite, sorta, and put out a single to benefit the victims of Japan. Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine and Bruce Johnston will team up on the song "Don't Fight the Sea" originally for Jardin'e "A Postcard from California" with the B-side being an a cappella mix of the 'Boys 1968 song "Friends".

A 20th anniversary reissue edition of the film "1991: The Year Punk Broke"has a date set for sometime in the fall. The film documents Sonic Youth's 1991 European headlining tour with future grunge-gods Nirvana as their opening act. Initially release in '91 on VHS the reissue will include previously unseen footage of the Ramones, Dinosaur Jr., Babes in Toyland and Gumball!

Lady Gaga & Brian May of Queen team up on Gaga's new album, "Born this Way". And it turns out she's a HUGE fan. So much so that her stage name of Gaga comes from a Queen song "Radio Ga Ga". Who would've thunk?

And in case you missed it... New Beastie Boys video and it's DOPE!!
