The Roots drummer ?uestlove can add "restaurant owner" to his resume once he opens his Chelsea food stand next Saturday. The joint, named Hybrid, will serve good eats described as, "gourmet fast food for the eclectic palate." How could you say no to gourmet fast food?
Anthony Bourdain, Andy Cohen, and Craig Ferguson are among a few of the supporters expected to show at Hybrid's opening bash.
If ?uestlove's grub is as good as his groove, we suspect this food stand will do just fine.
The New York Assembly has approved a three-mile length of Route 375 (from Hurley to Woodstock) to be designated Levon Helm Memorial Boulevard. The town boards in both cities have already endorsed the designation — all that's left is Senate approval and a signature from Governor Andrew Cuomo.
The late drummer, singer, and mandolin player reached fame in the '60s and '70s playing with The Band. He later introduced "Midgnight Ramble," a series of concerts he held in his barn/studio in Woodstock. All of this of course, was in between swooping up Grammys left and right.
Helm passed away last year at the age of 71, after losing a battle with throat cancer.
“Levon Helm was a true inspiration to not only millions of fans but our community,” Cahill said in a prepared statement on Monday. “His Rambles became a mainstay in the town of Woodstock, bringing back old soulful music worth listening to in a welcoming venue he created.”
Steven Adler's summer tour has been delayed — and for good reason. The former Guns N' Roses drummer checked into a rehabilitation center to continue working on his sobriety, in turn pushing the tour back a bit. Adler's frontman, Jacob Bunton, said the band was "truly sorry to all of the fans and promoters who were looking forward to seeing us on the road, but right now Steven's health is the most important thing. We hope to make it up to everyone when Steven recovers."
New tour dates are being rescheduled for sometime early this fall.
We’re excited to premiere the song “Stitched Together” by Highness with former Darkest Hour drummer Ryan Parrish pounding the kit. We wondered how Parrish would describe his drum part on the song. Here’s what he had to say:
“’Stitched Together’ has this really focused, aggressive energy that I particularly wanted to accentuate throughout the song. I found it incredibly open for creativity and it was fun to experiment in the studio and find what worked and what made the song flow. Overall, I’m extremely happy with how it came out and I feel everyone’s exceptional writing contributions make it a stand-out track that accents the darker side of our sound and songwriting.”
So here is the exclusive online debut of “Stiched Together,” for your listening pleasure.
Shadows Fall drummer Jason Bittner joined Exodus on stage last night at the Upstate Concert Hall in New York to perform the band's classic, "The Toxic Waltz."
"Last night I had the honor of stepping onstage to jam with the mighty Exodus (featuring one of my favorite metal guitar players ever – Gary Holt)," Bittner said. "It was dark as hell and I had to play a backwards kit, but it was hella fun!! To quote the Bay Area guys!!"
You can catch Bittner's performance with Exodus in the clip below:
