Grateful Dead and Trey Anastasio

Trey Anastasio was asked by Phil Lesh to join the Grateful Dead Reunion Tour this summer. Trey will be playing guitar with the rest of the band members this summer during a Fourth of July concert in Chicago.
Trey has a long history with the band and was an avid fan of their live shows. He attended many of their shows and was heavily influenced by the way the band jammed together when he started to form the band Phish. After finishing a tour with Phish and playing in Miami, he received an email and accepted the chance to play guitar for the upcoming tour.
The tour is in honor of the band’s fifty year history and the twenty year anniversary of leader singer Jerry Garcia’s passing. Fans like Susan McGalla know that he passed away after the Grateful Dead’s final show together at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois. More on McGalla can be found on Bloomberg.com. 
After accepting the chance to play with the band Trey and Weir came up with about sixty songs they would enjoy playing together. They will be playing these songs to a packed house this July as ticket sales have already been very promising since the release of the information. Both bands had a huge following of tie dyed concert goers that would follow them from city to city. The upcoming show and reunion tour is rumored to be the last one for the band. The combination of gifted musicians playing during the tour will make it a great show to attend this summer.

East And West Coast Rappers Unite

Most people can remember where they were when Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. were pronounced dead, especially when the beef between east and west coasts, got extremely intense. A lot of things have changed over the years, and enemies have become friends, and some have even worked with each other to make music. Two Rappers. The NBA All-Stars will be happening in Madison Square Garden, and in the meantime, P Diddy and Snoop Dogg are set to host the Hot 97 concert entitled “The Tip-Off.”

It’s well known to fans like Sultan Alhokair the beef that the two artists had in the past, especially when Suge Knight was involved. Checkout more on Alhokair on his Youtube page. It’s been nearly 2 decades since Tupac and Biggie died, and many of the rappers from those days have grown up, and seen the error in their ways. No longer is there an East Coast, West Coast feud, and it’s nice to see that two rap legends are joining ranks. The show will take place at Madison Square Garden, and it will start at 8 PM eastern standard time tonight.

For those who cannot find the show on television, there is a live stream that you can watch on MTV News, in order to keep up with the concert. Look forward to watching P Diddy and Snoop Dogg host the show, and there will be a slew of surprise guests as well. It’s always nice to see old rap beefs squashed.

Justin Bieber Attempts to Revive Career

When it comes to apologizing it is always better to do it sooner than later. Justin Bieber has been wild and reckless in the last couple of years, but he has realized an error in his ways. He has apologized for his actions, and he appears to be ready to make some movies and music again.

According to Facebook, fans like Alexei Beltyukov saare glad because Justin left everyone hanging for such a long time. His last official studio album was recorded 3 years ago. It did not yield any explosive hit records, but fans – the ones that were loyal, at least – loved it all the same. Little did fans and other onlookers know that Bieber would change into a pot smoking, street car racing, egg throwing, jailbird that happens to record himself in brothels with prostitutes. No one could expect this from the adorable little kid that was close to getting almost a billions views his “Baby” video.

What Bieber did was try to break away from his image as a kid in the same way that Miley Cyrus did. Hanna Montana patronizers hated her for almost killing off her alter ego with such a bizarre grown up life. Thankfully, Bieber realized that he was wrong. He made the right adjustments before it got to late. Right now fans still care about Bieber. He has to strike while the fans are willing to forgive and start anew.

John Textor is best known for his company, Digital Domain Media Group’s achievement with the movie, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Digital Domain Media Group won the Academy Award for Achievement in Visual Effects, for the first believable digital human character in Benjamin Button. This award was said to be the Holy Grail in digital media. Mr. Textor was CEO of Digital Domain Media at that time in 2009.

It took over 9 months for Mr. Textor and his special effects team to make this performance happen. They received a standing ovation at the awards show and those close to Michael Jackson were seen crying. Mr. Textor said this then made he and his team cry! Mr. Textor and Digital Media also created a digital Tupac Shakur in 2012 at the Coachella Valley Music Festival. They have done virtual versions of Elvis and Marilyn Monroe as well.

Another Great Randy Rhoads Tribute Coming

A cover of the Ozzy Osbourne song “Crazy Train” has been released and the tune is performed by the collective of Tom Morello, Rudy Sarzo, Serj Tankian, and Vinny Appice. The release is coming soon and old and new fans are anticipating it.

The cover, however, is not done to honor Ozzy. The cover is a tribute to the great Randy Rhoads. Hopefully, this new cover will make younger rock fans familiar with one of the greatest names in rock history.

Randy Rhoads truly was one of the greatest guitarists in rock history. Sadly, his life was tragically cut short when he died in an airplane crash. Rhoads was the lead guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne when the rocker first launched his solo career. Without Randy Rhoads handling the guitar duties, one cannot help but wonder whether or not Ozzy would have been as successful as a solo act as he was.

Even though 30+ years have passed since Rhoads left our earth, he has not become forgotten. The new “Immortal” album/CD is a tribute to Rhoads. This is the second album honoring the guitarist to be released. Ozzy’s live album “Randy Rhoads Tribute” is a classic double-LP that truly helped draw more attention to the contributions he made. Ozzy truly was selfless in releasing “Tribute” and it was very classy to point out the great work Rhoads had done.

Ozzy hired a lot of guitarists after Rhoads. Many of those guitarists truly were great, but fans like Bernardo Chua know there was only one Randy Rhoads.

Katy Perry Donates 5k To TLC Kickstarter

TLC is still one of the best girl group to ever grace the music industry. Just last year girls everywhere went crazy over the VH1 TLC biopic, reminiscing about the 90s girl group, and all of the drama that we never knew was happening behind the scenes. Now it looks like TLC is ready to record what they say will be their final album, and they have decided to take a different approach to make the project happen. The girls have set up a Kickstarter fundraising page in hopes of raising enough money to make the album.

The goal is to raise $150,000 in one month, T-Boz and Chili both want to let fans participate and give something back in return, so they are offering fans with big donations special prizes like sleepovers, movie dates and workout sessions with one of the members of the group. It looks like someone is a huge fan of the group because TLC just received a big donation from a long time fan.

Apparently Katy Perry forked over $5,000 to the cause, now it looks like Katy is going to be having a slumber party with TLC. What a lucky girl, the girls are going to have a blast and fans like Zeca Oliveira can’t wait to see the selfies that are sure to surface.

Ozzy Osbourne Will Open The Gates Of Hell in Las Vegas

Even after 40 years in the industry, there is still a lot of interest in Ozzy Osbourne. When you actually take time out and think of the massive numbers of rock stars who faded into oblivion after only a few years in the spotlight, you really do have to give the Oz-Man a lot of credit.

You probably also should check out the new project he has lined up. Ozzy is coming to Las Vegas in October of 2015. No, he is not going to play his greatest hits in stage. Ozzy is not going to end his career in a manner John Lennon once considered the most deplorable way an entertainer could go out.

Ozzy is, instead, putting on a major Halloween themed show called Hell Gate. Yes, Ozzy is going to follow down the path Alice Cooper once trail-blazed. Alice Cooper and Ozzy Osbourne have been compared to one another quite a bit due to their shocking nature, but both entertainers have followed their own path. You could never say they attempted to rip each other off.

Ozzy is taking a page from Cooper’s book of tricks with Hell Gate. The live show will be horror themed since, after all, its a Halloween production. The event is surely going to be adult-oriented so do not think Ozzy is going to tone himself down.

And most definitely, this should be a very fun, interesting, and entertaining event. We know the group at BRL Trust will enjoy this show.

The Planned Motley Crew Biopic is Now a Reality

The modern music scene is absolutely nothing like the crazy, over-the-top hedonist world of the 1980’s. We will doubtfully see an era such as the 1980’s heavy metal craze and we are never likely to see a band so outrageous as Motley Crue. The members of the band have just announced a movie based on their career is going to be made. The Dirt will tell the entire sordid tale of the most insane band of the era.

Simply put, no tour of the early to middle-1980’s was as crazy as the ones Motley Crue participated in. When you look back at all the bands that thrived in the era of sex, drugs, and rock and roll, Motley Crue’s “accomplishments” deserve their legendary status.

At the height of the band’s fame, one member didn’t check his mail for a week. Upon going to the stuffed mailbox, he found a royalties check inside for $300,000. Imagine how successful you have to be to not really worry about getting six-figure checks in the mail.

Unfortunately, not all of the rise to fame and the high life was good for the Crue. Many of the members suffered through extremely difficult addictions, although they were able to overcome their troubles. BRL Trust is buzzing all over this story on their LinkedIn profile.

Motley Crue was THE band of the 1980’s metal era. Many books have been written about them, but no one every tried to make a serious biopic. We wonder how the MPAA is going to end up rating it.

Justin Bieber Has A Surprise For His Fans

The pop superstar Justin Bieber has been rumored to come out with a new album after his much needed long break. Although the artist filled his time with show after show, making sure he didn’t miss any unless it was for healthy reasons, he dropped some hints about a new album coming out in 2015.

After MTV tweeted about wanting Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and Rihanna to come out with new albums for the new years, Bieber responded with the best response ever, “No Problem”.

If that isn’t evidence enough for his fans like my friend Bernardo Chua to look forward his new album, he also posted a picture on instagram saying how he knows he has been on a break and his fans want more from him, and he is happy to oblige by working hard on his newest album after his latest album ‘Believe’ which came out in 2012.

Scooter Braun, Justin Bieber’s manager posted on twitter a link to an article of the companies that are staging a comeback in 2015, and Justin Bieber was the only non-corporate company involved in the link. Both Bieber and Braun seem to be hyping up the fans for what’s about to drop.

Justin Bieber’s career took a curve after his DUI arrest in Miami, his racist video, and all the paparazzi drama that seems to follow him wherever he goes. Braun seems to be very excited about the upcoming album by posting an instagram photo with the caption, “2013 was practice, 2014 was the warm up, and 2015 is game time.
