Well, Happy New Year to You’s! For Classic Rock fans, it’s already shaping up to be a helluva year, proving once again that Classic Rock Will Never Die!
Sadly however, we do observe and pay tribute to the artists and musicians who will no longer play their music, but left plenty of it behind to carry on their legacy.
In the Classic Rock realm this past year, we lost guitarist Gary Moore (Thin Lizzy, Solo Artist), Clarence Clemons (E Street Band), Gerry Rafferty (Stealer’s Wheel), and Jani Lane (Warrant) among others.
However…There’s a mind-boggling list of heritage, classic artists that have big plans for 2K12: VAN HALEN!-New song this month, New album in February, GIGANTIC tour to follow! AEROSMITH!-New album of all-new recordings (their 1st since 2001) and tour to follow…BLACK FREAKIN’ SABBATH!!!-Ozzy, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, & Bill Ward getting’ it back together for a new album and worldwide tour. THE ROLLING STONES!-This year marks the Stones’ 50th Anniversary! WHAAAT????!!!! There's word that former members Bill Wyman & Mick Taylor will possibly be participating for some shows…
