Weekly Rock Wind Up Blog For May 5th

Some other notable stories from the world of rock-n-roll this week tells us that Sammy Hagar, who's been doing some massive press work in relation to his new autobiography "Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock", turned down lead front man roles in Motley Crue, Velvet Revolver, Pantera and Aerosmith. If he did happen to step in for Vince Neil, Scott Weiland, Phil Anselmo or Steven Tyler which band do you suppose he would have succeeded with? And I suppose in the same breath which band would it have been a disaster for him to team up with?

The Big Four Festival is now confirmed for the Bronx on September 14th, Yankee Stadium. Does this mean it'll also go down in the South or Midwest? As of now, that's uncertain.

Iggy Pop will cover The Beatles on his new CD with "Michelle". He'll also cover Fred Neil's "Everybody's Talkin'". And look for a new Stooges album with guitarist James Williamson. But wait... that's not all... A new four-CD set of concert bootlegs is slated to roll out on the 19th of this month, "Roadkill Rising: The Bootleg Collection 1977-2009".

More than 30 acts will be contributing to a tribute album for the legendary all-female, punk-pop group The Runaways. The Donnas, The Dandy Warhols, Kittie, and New York Dolls' David Johansen are just a few of the artists you can expect to find on the two-CD compilation available June 7th. A portion of the proceeds will go to the American Institute for Cancer Research.

Although he has not confirmed or denied it it seems Mick Jagger isn't the only memeber of the Rolling Stones who are working on solo music. Word on the street is Keith is in Manhattan's Germano Studios with producer Steve Jordan and engineer Dave O'Donnell. Both have won Grammy's for their work with Eric Clapton and John Mayer, just to name a few.

.Originally an Australian comedy broadcast on SBS TV in 2007 Wilfred recently made headlines with the news its been picked up for a 13 episode series to air on FX in 2011. What more could you expect from a series about a marijuana smoking dog attempting to compete with his master s new boyfriend for her love and affection? With the original pilot available now on IFC Wilfred s American debut will up the ante substantially adding the talented Elijah Wood to the cast as the lead role of Ryan. Oh yeah there s a catch only Ryan can see Wilfred as a man wearing a dog costume. It will be very interesting to see how cable television audiences handle the blatant drug use of Wilfred as the series goes into production in the coming months... The reason being that in the wake of such a controversial decision anti-drug campaigns the nation over have a much needed win for their side and you can bet they ll do their best to capitalize on the continued publicity. In this case education is a key take away from these programs and one that will surely be boon to the development of a safe and sustainable future for the next generation of TV watchers...What do you think? Any shows we missed or ones you think might also make use of California s legislation within a future storyline? Let us know in the comments. And if you voted no matter what you voted for THANK YOU..........
