Blackened RecordingsMetallica's upcoming Master of Puppets deluxe reissue includes a host of live tracks recorded during the band's tour in support of the iconic album. One of those recordings is a performance of the Ride the Lightning track "For Whom the Bell Tolls," live in Hampton, Virginia on August 3, 1986, which you can listen to now via NME.com.

The Hampton show was Metallica's last stop on Ozzy Osbourne's Ultimate Sin tour. During the "For Whom the Bell Tolls" performance, Kirk Hammett's guitar tech John Marshall played rhythm guitar because James Hetfield had broken his arm earlier that summer.

In addition to the actual performance, the recording captures Hetfield's pre-song banter, during which he introduces Marshall and encourages the crowd to cheer for bassist Cliff Burton. That part is especially heavy, given that Burton died just over a month later in a freak bus accident.

The Master of Puppets reissue will be released November 10.

James PowellChuck Panozzo has a special message to share on this, his 68th birthday.  The founding Styx bassist has issued a statement in which he talks about being both gay, and an HIV survivor.

Panozzo, who revealed his diagnosis back in 2001, says, “It’s difficult enough to be different and even more challenging to live with big secrets. I have finally learned to enjoy my differences. Through the years, I struggled with my feelings about my diagnosis and found that the stigma of being HIV positive was actually worse than having the disease itself.”

He also talks about a recent visit to the World AIDS Museum and Educational Center in Wilton Manors, Florida, which he says was a life-changing experience.

Panozzo says, “I confronted my fear and found a tremendous freedom in doing so. Along with this came a learning experience and I became more aware of who I am and what I can do to change my feelings. I was so moved by the Museum’s mission that I have been able to experience a much greater personal power.”

Panozzo has posted a video about his visit to the Museum and is asking friends and fans to “like” WAM’s Facebook page, visit  their website and make a donation.

He concludes, “Thank you for allowing me to share my personal story and taking the time to learn about the importance of The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center. I promise that your donation will make a difference in many lives.”

Django CrosbyDavid Crosby didn’t have to look far for assistance on his new album, Sky Trails.

The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee tells USA Today he collaborated with his son, James Raymond, on a complex track titled “Curved Air.” The song features a flamenco guitar intro that Raymond actually composed on keyboards.

Crosby marvels, “I don’t know how he did it. I am completely flummoxed by it. When I heard it I said, ‘Who did you get to play the guitar?’ And he said, ‘Me.’ I said, ‘Oh, come on. You can’t possibly have played that. It’s inconceivable.’ But, yeah, he did. He’s that good.”

The 76-year-old Crosby says at this point in his storied career, he’s not interested in looking for a “hit.”

“[Raymond] and I aren’t trying to be pop guys, man," he explains. "We’re not trying to have a hit. It’s just that I am at the end of my life. I’ve got a little time left. So I feel a strong pressure to do every bit of music I can and do it as well as I possibly can, knowing it will last longer than I will."

You can listen to "Curved Air" now on SoundCloud.  Sky Trails is due September 29.

ABC/Randy HolmesMetallica's classic "One" is known as an anti-war song, but it soundtracks a whole lot of violence in the new trailer for The Punisher, the next Netflix Marvel series.

The Punisher follows former elite soldier Frank Castle, who uses his skills to mercilessly hunt down criminals of every stripe after his family is murdered. Jon Bernthal plays the eponymous anti-hero, who's in full force in the new trailer.

"One" appears on Metallica's 1988 album ...And Justice for All. The trailer also features what we're going to assume is a reference to Metallica's debut album, when the Punisher declares he's going to "kill 'em all."

The Punisher is set to debut on Netflix sometime this year.

Marvel is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.

ABC/Travis BellAs one of the biggest bands on the planet, Foo Fighters have come in contact with royalty on several occasions. For example, both Dave Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins have met England's Prince Harry, although they had very different experiences.

As Grohl tells BBC Breakfast, Harry was one of the first people to visit him after his surgery to repair his broken leg in 2015. Not only that, the Prince brought gifts.

"He brought me this little pillow to my iPad on while I was in recovery," Grohl says. "He is the sweetest. I owe you a text, Harry."

Harry also helped Hawkins recover from an ailment, albeit in a much less gentler way. Hawkins met the Prince backstage right before Foo Fighters were about to play a show, and the drummer was feeling the effects of jet lag.

"We were getting ready to walk on stage, and I was tired and so jet-lagged," Hawkins remembers. So what did Harry do? Slap him, of course.

"I was like 'what was that?'" Hawkins says. "It was great, it was funny."

"I wore that slap with pride," he adds.

In related Foo Fighters-in-the-U.K. news, the band headlined London's O2 Arena Tuesday night. Unfortunately, the show was marred by a bit of controversy -- the BBC reports that hundreds of fans were turned away from the venue because they bought tickets from secondary markets.

In a joint statement, Foo Fighters, the O2 and promoter SJM say they are "frustrated and saddened that despite their best efforts, tickets for last night's show at the O2 fell into the hands of unscrupulous secondary ticket agencies."

"Unfortunately, this meant a small number of fans purchasing bogus tickets from these unscrupulous outlets did not get into the sold out show," the statement reads.

Cooper Neill/Getty ImagesThough he's a member of that most "California" of bands -- the Eagles -- Don Henley was born and raised in Texas.  That's why he's headlining a benefit concert in November to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Harvey, which devastated Houston and other parts of the Lone Star State.

The event, called Helping Texans: A Hurricane Harvey Benefit Concert, will take place November 28 at Bass Hall in Fort Worth, Texas.  All ticket proceeds will go to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund at the North Texas Community Foundation. 

The bill also includes two other Texas singer/songwriters: country star Clint Black and Lyle Lovett. All the event's expenses are being underwritten, and the artists are donating there time, so all the money can go directly to charity.  Tickets go on sale Friday at BassHall.com and by phone at 817-212-4280.

In a statement, Don says, "This is another example of Texans helping Texans, and I’m proud to be a part of it.

It's estimated that Hurricane Harvey caused $180 billion in damage, more than any other natural disaster in U.S. history except Hurricane Katrina.

Before that benefit, Don has several concerts scheduled with the Eagles. On September 30, they'll perform at the Classic Northwest, a festival in Seattle, with the Doobie Brothers.  They also have shows booked in Greensboro, NC; Atlanta; Louisville, KY; and Detroit.   Country star Vince Gill and Eagles co-founder Glenn Frey's son Duncan are filling the hole left in the band by Frey, who died last year.

Michael KeelRitchie Blackmore has a holiday gift for you.

The former Deep Purple and Rainbow guitarist is reissuing Winter Carols, an album of holiday music from Blackmore’s Night, his long-running project with singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Candice Night.

Released in celebration of Blackmore’s Night’s 2oth anniversary, the reissue will be available on digital formats this Friday and on CD October 13. It includes brand-new recordings of “Deck The Halls,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Oh Christmas Tree,” with special arrangements by Blackmore.

Blackmore describes the Renaissance-inspired approach employed by himself and Night as "fantasy music for all ages."

He explains, “The origin of the word ‘carol’ means ‘dance.’ I am naturally attracted to these melodies. As a kid, I would go from house to house during the holiday time and sing them just to earn some money. As an adult, I thought I could play them and make more money!”

Striking a slightly less commercial tone, Night says, “We are entranced by the magic of the (holiday) season. The sentiments of the holidays are what we try to express in our music year round -- so this CD is a natural progression. All the music we craft and create has always been about love, unity and friendship. These songs as a whole are beautiful unifying carols…Everyone can join in.”

For more information, visit the group’s website.

Here's the track listing for Winter Carols:

"Deck the Halls" 
"God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" 
"Oh Christmas Tree" 
"Hark! The Herald Angels Sing/Come All Ye Faithful" 
"I Saw Three Ships" 
"Winter (Basse Dance)" 
"Ding Dong Merrily on High" 
"Ma-O-Tzur" 
"Good King Wenceslas" 
"Lord of the Dance/Simple Gifts" 
"We Three Kings" 
"Wish You Were Here" 
"Emmanuel" 
"Christmas Eve" 
"We Wish You a Merry Christmas"

Roswell Records/RCA RecordsFoo Fighters are rocketing towards the top of the Billboard 200 thanks to their new album, Concrete and Gold. According to the publication, the latest effort from Dave Grohl and company is headed for a number-one debut on the chart with an estimated total of 120,000 equivalent album units.

Given their status as one of the biggest rock bands in the world, it's perhaps surprising that Foo Fighters have only topped the Billboard 200 once before in their career. They debuted at number one for the first time with the 2011 album Wasting Light. Still, every Foo album since their 1997 sophomore effort The Colour and the Shape has peaked in the Billboard 200's top 10.

Concrete and Gold, the ninth studio Foo Fighters album, includes the singles "Run" and "The Sky Is a Neighborhood." The disc features guest appearances from Paul McCartney, Justin Timberlake, Alison Mosshart of The Kills, and Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men.

If you need even more Foo in your life, the band will appear in the latest installment of "Carpool Karaoke" on tonight's episode of The Late Late Show, airing at 12:37 a.m. ET on CBS.

ABC/Adam TalorIt's official: Bono and Paul McCartney have good heads for business.

The duo is included in Forbes magazine's 100 Greatest Business Minds, alongside SpaceX and Tesla's Elon Musk, Microsoft's Paul Allen, Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos, Oprah Winfrey and others.

In an essay, Bono explains, “Capitalism is not immoral, but it is amoral. And it requires our instruction. It's a wild beast that needs to be tamed, a better servant than master. That's my philosophy with (RED), which partners with corporations to direct profits to fighting HIV/AIDS…. I realized that going to big companies and trying to break into their more modest philanthropy funds was a huge missed opportunity. It was their robust marketing and publicity budgets that we needed.”

The U2 frontman admits, “Some of the most selfish people I've met are artists -- I'm one of them -- and some of the most selfless people I've ever met are in business, people like Warren Buffett.”

For his part, regarding the raised eyebrows when Michael Jackson bought the Beatles’ publishing rights, McCartney writes, “It all goes back to the very beginning of the Beatles, when we signed the music publishing contract. We didn't care what it was…we wanted to get published. It turned out to be basically a slave contract; no matter how successful we made the company, we didn't get a raise.

Paul concludes, “It's so important to have good people around you. That's why I'm anywhere near this list. My lawyers…are really smart, both great guys, and I listen to them. In recent years, they've helped me recover my copyrights…If I'm wheeling and dealing, life becomes very difficult for me. I've got to reserve a portion of my brain for writing songs.”

Genesis PublicationsMick Fleetwood's new limited-edition book, Love that Burns -- A Chronicle of Fleetwood Mac: Volume 1, 1967-1974, officially gets published today. As its title suggests, the book delves into the band's early history, and is packed with rare photos, memorabilia and personal recollections from Fleetwood and many of the group's other members.

Love That Burns' main focus is on Fleetwood Mac's original lineup, led by blues-guitar virtuoso Peter Green. Although Green was the group's main singer, guitarist and songwriter, Fleetwood tells ABC Radio Green shied away from the spotlight. Mick says this attitude is reflected by the fact that Peter chose to name the band after its rhythm section -- Fleetwood and bassist John McVie -- and was furious when the group's label included his name in their debut album's title, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac.

"He was the founding father that formed the spirit that continues through today," Fleetwood maintains, "where everyone was always accepted for who they are, what they are, and bring what you have."

The band's name actually comes from a 1967 instrumental recording that Green, Fleetwood and McVie made while they were members of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. The trio recorded the track using studio time that Mayall gave Green as a birthday present. When the recording was done and Peter was asked what the tune's name was, he said, "call it 'Fleetwood Mac,' 'cause John [McVie] and Mick are playing on it."

That track and the 1968 Fleetwood Mac tune "Love That Burns" are included on a special seven-inch vinyl picture disc packaged with the new book.

Fleetwood will celebrate the book's publication at a Q&A and meet-and-greet event at London's Piccadilly Theatre on Tuesday, September 26.

ABC/Randy HolmesThe film Singles was released in theaters September 18, 1992: 25 years ago today. Set in Seattle during the grunge era, the movie featured music from Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden and the late Chris Cornell.

In a piece for Rolling Stone in honor of the anniversary, director Cameron Crowe remembers what it was like to work with Cornell, who died by suicide earlier this year.

"Chris Cornell was somebody who I just thought, 'This guy belongs in the movie,'" Crowe writes. "I loved Soundgarden -- they were the greatest live show I'd seen. I had real strong feelings about Soundgarden and about Chris with this huge heart of his."

"He was accepting Eddie [Vedder] into Seattle and he was helping me know what it was to live here, at this time and this place -- that feeling of, this guy really matters to this city," Crowe adds.

In fact, Crowe originally wanted Cornell to play the role of Cliff Poncier, the dopey lead singer of the fictional band Citizen D**k. Instead, the role went to Matt Dillon, but Cornell still made a cameo in the movie as himself.

"I thought, maybe we can have the best of all worlds," Crowe writes. "Chris can be a character who plays, and we don't have to make him play a wannabe musician. We can just have him be Chris."

Cornell and Crowe would continue to work together up until the Soundgarden frontman took his own life this past May.

"For any of us lucky enough to know him or experience his gift, there's no past tense," Crowe says of Cornell. "He's that vivid of a guy. I can't talk about him in the past. I talk about him in the present and I always will."

A deluxe version of the Singles soundtrack was released earlier this year.

I see this concert as a fulfillment of my duties to my father that we gather in Montreal to ring the bells that still can ring.”

Michael Loccisano/Getty ImagesEven at age 70, Ronnie Wood manages to keep rolling along.

The Rolling Stones guitarist, who had surgery for lung cancer earlier this year, told the Guardian when it comes to sex, “You’ve got to have that every day.” Wood married his third wife, theater producer Sally Humphreys, in 2012. Their twin daughters, Gracie and Alice, were born last year. The rocker also has four other children.

In a question and answer session with the British publication, Wood – who joined the Stones in 1975 after stints in the Jeff Beck Group and the Faces – said the song he’d like played at his funeral would be “The Resurrection Shuffle.” For the record, that track was a 1971 hit for Northern English rock trio Ashton, Gardner and Dyke.

Wood also characterized himself as “fearless” and said the most important lesson life has taught him is, “Don’t give up.” As for his guilty pleasure, Wood responded, "I am not guilty about it, but caviar.”

Wood chose “X-ray vision” as his desired superpower, explaining, “I was always intrigued by that when I was a kid.”

When asked what makes him unhappy, Wood responded, “Not a lot – I’m quite a happy bloke.” Expanding on that theme, he explained, “Right now is a pretty good time in my life. I am existing on three-monthly check-ups, but, yeah, I am very grateful.”
