DON HENLEY: Planning one epic 70th birthday bash
With the announcement of the Classic East and West festivals in July with the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Journey and others expected any day now, we've heard some more details about Don Henley's 70th birthday concert, also in July (on the 22nd) in Dallas.
A report says that helping him blow out the candles will be two of his Eagles bandmates -- Timothy B. Schmit and Joe Walsh -- along with his former flame Stevie Nicks, who he scored a Top 10 hit with in 1981 on "Leather and Lace."
Stay tuned for more guests.
STEVIE WONDER: Settled suit with widow of his longtime lawyer
Stevie Wonder has reached a settlement with the widow of his former lawyer.
Susan Strack accused Stevie of cutting her off from the six-percent share of his income specified in a longstanding agreement. Strack's husband Johanan Vigoda had represented Wonder for 40 years.
After initially claiming that the financial arrangement wasn't supposed to continue after Vigoda's death, Wonder was sued for $7 million by Strack. Stevie countered that the attorney had added terms that maintained the money stream for his family without consent.
Details of the settlement have not surfaced. (EURWeb.com)
KANSAS: Legendary rock 'n roll band is back in the studio
Kansas will not wait another 16 years to record a new album -- as they did prior to The Prelude Implicit, which was released last year.
The experience and the success of the project led the group to make a plan to record again next year.
Kansas guitarist Richard Williams on why it took the band 16 years in between their last two studio albums: "There's a lot of factors in why we didn't record (in 16 years). But, with the new lineup and just everything has been going so well, we needed to express ourselves. We needed to be creative."
