So...Chester Bennington is the new lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots, and I"ll admit...he sounds a lot like Weiland, but I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Here's an inside look at their upcoming "High Rise" ep due out on October 8th. You be the judge...

Today is the anniversary of the tragic death of Jimi Hendrix who died at the age of 27 in an apartment in Notting Hill (part of London) in 1970. Five days earlier the guitarist gave an interview to Kieth Altham, a journalist who knew Jimi well. 

Talking to the Independent Kieth said: 

“He was an extraordinary force and used that guitar like a third arm, he was like two people on one guitar. He was an assimilation of all the music styles he had been through in his early career when he had played with the Isley Brothers and Ike & Tina Turner and Little Richard. He wasn’t just a blues guitarist or a jazz guitarist or a rock and roll guitarist – he was all of them rolled into one.”

Kieth Altham interviewed Jimi Hendrix in total of eight times but admittinly has said that during that final interview he looked to be ill and not in good health. 

“He wasn’t in the best physical shape five days before his death. He had been going through a difficult period with drugs and stress and tension and the (new group) Band of Gypsys, which he had brought together, hadn’t quite come off as he’d hoped it would.”

Even though Jimi was unhappy and not feeling well Keith was convinced that his death was accidental.

“There were conspiracy theories and (questions of) did he commit suicide. I felt it was just an unhappy combination of drink and drugs and if anyone was guilty of anything it was of just not looking after him properly.”

This final interview has never been heard in it's entirety by the general public. Tonight it will be broadcast be Team Rock Radio which means after it will be available online.

It was today (Sept. 23rd) in 1969 that The Northern Star newspaper from Nothern Illinois University ran a story claiming Paul McCartney was dead, and had been for 3 years. The story claimed that Sir Paul had died in a car crash in 1966. A story like this would never last in this digital age, but in 1969 all it took was a DJ from WKNR in Detroit to run with the story and it was like "War of the Worlds" all over again. 

The story had many more legs in the United States than it did in England where people had actually seen the real Paul leave his house, or go to the Abbey Road studios, or even go out to the Theater and such. Here is a Youtube video explaining it all. Enjoy and thankfully Paul is alive and well
