ZZ Top has been forced to cancel a handful of its shows with Jeff Beck this summer, following an accident involving bassist Dusty Hill. Ultimate Classic Rock reported that Hill, now 65, fell on Tuesday (August 26th) inside the band’s tour bus, injuring his hip and was in need of "immediate attention."

Refunds for the scrapped gigs are available at the point of purchase. Jeff Beck will play tonight, Friday, and Saturday’s (August 28th, 29th, 30th) shows as a solo headliner.

Paul McCartney fans are just going to have to wait a bit longer for the next two releases in the "Paul McCartney Archive Collection." 1975's Venus And Mars and 1976's Wings At The Speed Of Sound -- "Macca's" final two studio chart-toppers with Wings -- were originally due out on September 23rd and have now been pushed back six weeks.
McCartney's label, Concord Records, issued a statement stating: "Due to production issues the release of the latest albums in the Grammy award winning Paul McCartney Archive Collection will be delayed. The classic Wings albums Venus And Mars and Wings At The Speed Of Sound will now be released on November 3rd in the UK and November 4th in the U.S. and not the previously announced September dates."
Art Garfunkel has just announced over a dozen shows for this fall. Garfunkel launches the trek on September 18th in Newberry, South Carolina at the Newberry Opera House and eventually wraps things up on November 16th at Vacaville, California’s Vacaville Performing Arts Center. Along the way, Garfunkel will make two Canadian stops, as well as playing shows in Texas and California.
Garfunkel, who fought long and hard to regain his voice after suffering a three-year bout of vocal paralysis, told us that recovering his voice is the greatest gift he's ever known: "Oh, I could fall to my knees with gratefulness to God for allowing the verb 'mending' to be part of the picture. You bet I'm grateful! I didn't count on anything like the voice coming back. I counted on nothing. I was just kind of depressed over, 'How come I can't sing, man?' I see the (laughs) light at the end of the tunnel." : September 18 - Newberry, SC - Newberry Opera House September 20 - Florence, SC - FMU Performing Arts Center September 25 - Regina, SK - Casino Regina Show Lounge September 27 - Winnipeg, MB - Burton Cummings Theatre October 9, 10 - San Antonio, TX - Studio Theater October 11 - Dallas, TX - Majestic Theatre October 12 - Midland, TX - Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center November 9 - San Luis Obispo, CA - Christopher Cohan Center November 10 - Modesto, CA - Mary Stuart Rogers Theatre November 12 - Folsom, CA - Harris Center For The Arts November 13 - Campbell, CA - Heritage Theatre November 14 - Redding, CA - Cascade Theatre November 16 - Vacaville, CA - Vacaville Performing Arts Center
Queen and Adam Lambert were joined by Lady Gaga during their August 27th concert in Sydney, Australia, according to Rolling Stone. Gaga -- who was also on the road Down Under -- took to the looking like a miniature Brian May with "a giant Afro and dark jumpsuit with little crowns embossed on it" performing Queen’s 1980 chart-topper, "Another One Bites The Dust." Gaga is no stranger to the band, having co-written the track "Fever" for Lambert’s 2009 debut album, For Your Entertainment, and enlisting May's guitar work for her track "You And I," which sampled Queen’s "We Will Rock You."
Brian May told us that these live Queen revivals, which are led by him and drummer Roger Taylor, are celebrations of the past -- not an effort to replace or top Freddie Mercury's years fronting the band: "Yeah, it was great with Paul Rodgers and I think we all thought we took it a long, long way -- way further than we imagined in the beginning, y’know, we’re still very good friends; but it did come to a natural end and he needs to tend to his career, and stuff. Contrary to what you may think, I think neither Roger or I are desperate, y’know, to do what we did, because we did it, and we’re not always looking for someone to sing for us. Y’know, organically this happened with Adam, and y’know, we just feel good about it. And we wouldn’t be here if we didn’t feel it was right and natural to be doing this."
