RON WOOD RECOVERING AFTER LUNG SURGERY

Ron Wood has successfully had a small lesion removed from his lung. The Rolling Stones guitarist -- who'll turn 70 on June 1st -- revealed that the growth was removed through "keyhole surgery," with Wood posting on his official website (RonnieWood.com): "I’m so grateful for modern screening which picked this up so early, and would like to thank all the doctors who treated me."

Wood is the third member of the Stones to have battled back from cancer. Retired bassist Bill Wyman revealed last year that he was battling prostate cancer, undergoing treatment and expected to make a full recovery. Back in 2004, drummer Charlie Watts was successfully treated for throat cancer. Watts -- who gave up smoking in the '60s -- discovered a lump in his throat and completed six weekly radiotherapy sessions at London's Royal Marsden Hospital.

  • Keith Richards attributes much of the Rolling Stones' longevity over the years to Ron Wood, who joined in time for the band's 1975 tour dates: "Definitely without Ronnie Wood, we wouldn't have had the cohesion to stick together. But, y'know, it was. . . he came along at just the right time. And with a guy like that around, you gotta hang around, 'cause he so damn funny (laughs)." on DVD and Blu-ray is the Rolling Stones' latest concert documentary, Ole Ole Ole! A Trip Across Latin America. The film by Paul Dugdale, which had a brief theatrical run last year, "follows the Stones on their 2016 tour through ten Latin America cities while at the same time trying to stage their first ever concert in Havana, Cuba, a colossal once-in-a-lifetime open air free show the likes of which Cuba had never seen before. The film captures the unique chemistry that exists between the Rolling Stones and their Latin American fans, a bond that has stretched across many years."

    • The new edition features seven bonus performances from the tour, running over 50 minutes and including tunes from the band's gigs in Argentina, Brazil, and Peru.
    • Stones classics featured on the disc are "Out Of Control," "Paint It, Black," "Honky Tonk Women," "Sympathy For The Devil," "You Got The Silver," "Midnight Rambler," and "Miss You."

I really like it. And I come in in the end and I kind of listen to it and I say, 'No, no, no -- yeah.' I mainly just said, 'yeah,' 'cause it really was so good. I was very happy." - less

DEAD & COMPANY KICK THINGS OFF IN VEGAS THIS WEEKEND

Dead & Company kicks off its third summer tour on Saturday (May 27th) at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena. The 19-date trek, which is essentially the latest configuration of the Grateful Dead, closes with a two-night stand at Chicago's Wrigley Field on June 30th and July 1st. In addition to sheds and arenas, the band will hit three stadiums on the tour -- Boulder's Folsom Field, Boston's Fenway Park, and New York's Citi Field. Along with Dead members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann -- the band is rounded out with guitarist John Mayer, former-Allman Brothers Band bassist Oteil Burbridge, and RatDog and Dead sideman, keyboardist Jeff Chimenti.

Mickey Hart is blown away by what John Mayer has brought to the band on the road. We asked him if he's thinking that the Dead & Co will eventually hit the studio to record new material: "I think that's what eventually will happen, y'know, once we feel comfortable. John had to learn. . . John knows about now, 50 of our songs, 60 of our songs; not only how to play 'em, but how to sing 'em. That's a lotta learnin'! Grateful Dead music might sound easy, but once you start putting your pick or drumstick down -- it's not as easy as it sounds. So John has just put his nose to the grindstone here and plays every day, listens to the Grateful Dead. It was an amazing effort on his part, I'll say that. I salute him. And he still has a lot to learn, 'cause we're trying to get up to about 80 songs on a tour." :

ROGER WATERS LAUNCHES 'US + THEM' TOUR TONIGHT

Roger Waters kicks off his 54-date 'Us + Them' tour tonight (May 26th) at Kansas City, Missouri's Sprint Center. The trek is in support of Waters' first studio album in 25 years, Is This the Life We Really Want?, which drops on June 2nd. The Pink Floyd co-founder will be on the road through the fall when the North American leg wraps on October 28th at Vancouver's Rogers Arena.

It goes without saying that Waters' disdain for Donald Trump will be expressed throughout the upcoming shows. He spoke frankly about his feelings on the President to Esquire, explaining, "I wrote a long speech that I was going to make at Desert Trip about the election and about Trump. It was about how it was understandable that people felt betrayed, because they had been. But they also had to understand that they had been betrayed by Donald Trump and his kind, not by the Mexicans or the Chinese or whoever he was telling them was the enemy. Because they're not the enemy. He is! This guy who is trying to get you to vote for him. . . is your enemy! This is the guy who is destroying your lives. He keeps telling you that your jobs are being stolen by the Chinese and the Mexicans, but they're not. They're being stolen by him. It is all part of his shell game, and what they were voting for was a kleptocracy. But it wasn't the right time. People wouldn't have listened. You can't make a long speech like that in the middle of a rock and roll show. It was two full pages and it would have taken me several minutes even to read it. It would have been wrong. . . So I didn't do it."

  • Roger Waters touched upon the difference between where he believes humanity is now and where is should be: "The world is a far worse place than it was just after the second World War, because it has been taken over by greed and corporate strategy and, y'know, the love of money. At the expense of joy that we all of us could get from treating each other more humanely." :

ANONYMOUS SOURCES PAINT DARK PICTURE OF CHRIS CORNELL'S FINAL DAYS

An anonymously sourced report at TMZ suggests that Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell may have been using other drugs besides his prescription medication Ativan shortly before he committed suicide early last Thursday morning (May 18th) in a Detroit hotel room. Sources told the website that Cornell had "obvious" track marks on his arms when his body was discovered. Although Cornell had a past history of drug use, he had reportedly been clean and sober since 2002.

  • The results of toxicology test are pending and will reveal what, if any, other substances were in his body at the time of his death.
  • Cornell took Ativan for anxiety, with his family's lawyer suggesting last week that side effects of the drug have been linked to suicidal feelings.
  • Soundgarden's longtime house engineer and tour manager, Ted Keedick, told TMZ that the vocalist seemed to be "high" and "f**ked up" during the band's last performance in Detroit, hours before Cornell's death. He said that the singer was "out of character from note one of the show."
  • Cornell's remains were cremated on Tuesday (May 23rd), with a private funeral service scheduled for Friday (May 26th) at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles. After 3:00 p.m. local time on Friday, following the private ceremony, the public is welcome to visit the gravesite.

BUCKINGHAM & McVIE POST BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK AT NEW ALBUM

Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie have just posted a nearly 18-minute video giving fans a sneak peak at their self-titled album, due out on June 9th. The album, which also features Fleetwood Mac's Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, will be supported by a 13-date tour, which kicks off on June 21st at Atlanta's Chastain Park Amphitheatre and runs through July 27th at Denver's Paramount Theatre.

Lindsey Buckingham admitted to us that Christine McVie leaving and returning to Fleetwood Mac after 16 years were both moves that she needed to make on her own: "I was telling everybody else: 'She’ll never be in the band again. She’s gone.’ And I really believed that. That she burned all her bridges and she needed to get out of L.A. and needed to move on from that scene, y’know? And it just really organically played out in a way, which seemed so appropriate, y’know, in terms of the timing of it. The whole thing has really got such a circular feel to it."

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, STEVIE NICKS!!!

Happy Birthday to Stevie Nicks, who celebrates her 69th birthday today (May 26th)!!! Nicks, who'll appear on Lana Del Ray's new album, recently wrapped a high profile joint tour with the Pretenders and will play a string of solo dates this summer. Nicks chose to sit out Fleetwood Mac's recent recording sessions, which resulted in the collection being released as a Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie  project -- featuring bassist John McVie and drummer Mick Fleetwood. Nicks will be back with the band in July when they headline the Classic East/West concerts in L.A. and New York City.

Stevie Nicks ‎recently released the live album, Beauty And The Beast: Live 1986 Radio Broadcast. The concert, which has long been bootlegged, was taped on August 15th, 1986 in Cuyahoga, New York during Nicks’ tour in support of her third solo set, Rock A Little. In addition to such solo hits as “Edge Of Seventeen,” “Stand Back,” “Talk To Me,” and “Leather And Lace,” the disc also features a cover of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ “I Need To Know,” and renditions of her Fleetwood Mac classics “Dreams” and “Rhiannon.”

In October 2014, Stevie Nicks released her latest album, 24 Karat Gold - Songs From The Vault. The tracks are re-recordings of her long unreleased and unfinished demos -- many written in the early-'70s, while The album, which hit Number Seven on the Billboard 200 album charts, was co-produced by Nicks, Dave Stewart, and Waddy Wachtel.

  • That fall, Nicks launched her first photo exhibit in New York City. The show, featuring a selection of Nicks' formally lit and posed Polaroid photographs, ran for a week at Manhattan’s Morrison Hotel Gallery in SoHo.
  • Stevie Nicks was the 2014 recipient of the prestigious BMI Icon Award and honored at the 62nd Annual BMI Pop Awards held at L.A.’s Beverly Wilshire Hotel. BMI.com posted that over the course of her career, Stevie Nicks received 12 BMI million-performance citations, along with 12 BMI Pop Awards, a BMI Urban Award, and a BMI Country Award for such hits as "Landslide," "Rhiannon," "Dreams," "Leather And Lace," and "Gypsy," among others.
  • Nicks' 2011 album, In Your Dreams, entered the Billboard 200 chart at Number Six, selling 52,000 copies during its first week of release, and marked her first Top 10 album in a decade. Her documentary on the album -- also called, In Your Dreams -- played at over 50 theaters across North America and is now out on DVD. The film showcases the "inner life of Nicks -- including costume parties, elaborate dinner feasts, tap dancing, fantasy creations and revealing songwriting and recording sessions, all of which are captured on film." The doc also features cameos by Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, and Reese Witherspoon, alongside several "home-movie" style music videos.
  • Stevie Nicks was contemplating quitting music in December 1974 when she and then-boyfriend and bandmate Lindsey Buckingham got the break of a lifetime when Mick Fleetwood was checking out Sound City Studio in Los Angeles, where he was considering recording the band's next album. Staff producer Keith Olson played Fleetwood a Buckingham Nicks track called "Frozen Love" that had been recorded at the studio, with Fleetwood deciding upon first listening that he wanted Buckingham to join Fleetwood Mac. Buckingham told Fleetwood he would join the band -- but not without Nicks, and the rest is, as they say, history.
  • Although its been over 40 years since Buckingham and Nicks parted ways as lovers, Lindsey Buckingham says that the public at large can't really grasp how tough it was for him to continue being a bandmate and producer with his former longtime live-in girlfriend: ["For me personally, it was difficult to continue to produce songs for Stevie, and to do for her -- do the right thing, obviously -- but in the context of her moving away from me. And it was painful. Obviously, I think the same would be true for John and Christine (McVie)."] SOUNDCUE (:16 OC: . . . John and Christine)
  • Stevie Nicks said that the emotional trauma of every one in the band suffering through a romantic breakup during the sessions for 1977's Rumours pushed the group towards cocaine -- which kick-started a decade-long addiction that nearly killed her. As cocaine took over the industry, Nicks says that most people believed it was entirely non-addictive: ["Y'know, I thought as I was going through the '70s and cocaine was introduced into everybody's life, and told that it was recreational, and that it was not dangerous. But, y'know, that's what we were told, really. On the other side of that, we were also told, 'Don't ever do heroin, because if you do it once, you'll have to do it every day, because you'll never feel that good again, and you'll be chasing that, that high for the rest of your life.' So, it was like, I was told not to do heroin and told why and didn't. But cocaine, we were all told was cool -- that's why we did it. Of course, then we all got extremely addicted to it."] SOUNDCUE (:32 OC: . . . addicted to it)
  • Sheryl Crow told us that Stevie Nicks was her ultimate hero during her teen years: ["I thought she was the one young rock n' roll woman I could relate to and see myself being like. And up until that point I really only had Mick Jagger and people like that, Robert Plant to sort of look at and think, 'God, I´d like to be like that.' I never really related to Janis Joplin so much. She was sort of not, in my mind, she wasn't very together even though she was definitely an artist. When Stevie came around, that rang a real clear bell with me."] SOUNDCUE (:29 OC . . . bell with me)
  • The Eagles' Don Henley and Stevie Nicks were romantically linked back in the late-'70s, and scored a 1981 Top Ten hit with their duet "Leather And Lace." The pair went on to tour with each other in 2005. Henley shed some light on his deep friendship with Nicks: ["We go back a long way. We don't see very much of each other these days. I mean, she's got her life and I've got mine, and there's certainly nothing going on here on a romantic level. But we're friends. We feel like we've been through a lot of the same things in our careers."] SOUNDCUE (:12 OC: . . . in our careers)
  • Stevie Nicks has been a solo superstar for over four decades now. We asked her how she feels about juggling two very high profile careers over the years: ["A solo career and Fleetwood Mac are a really great thing to go back and forth to. Because, y'know, you can do your solo work and then you could do Fleetwood Mac, and then you can go back to your solo work and then you could do Fleetwood Mac. It really is kind of a blessing in many ways. You never get bored, so you can do your thing until you start to get bored and then you can go to the other thing. (Laughs) And then you can do that until you start to get bored and go back to the other thing. And it really makes for staying in a much more excited and uplifted humor for everything that you do when you're not just doing one thing."] SOUNDCUE (:31 OC: . . . doing one thing)
  • Despite her many personal and creative changes over the years, Stevie Nicks maintains she's essentially remained the same as she was as a teen in Northern California back in the 1960's in high school with Lindsey Buckingham: ["As I say to Lindsey sometimes, when we talk about how we've changed; in a lot of ways, I'm not really very different than the girl I was when I first met him. How I perform has not changed very much. I mean, I saw Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix and Grace Slick and I watched carefully and I took from them what I wanted from my own stage performance. And I pretty much stuck with that."] SOUNDCUE (:23 OC: . . . stuck with that)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GLADYS KNIGHT!!!

Happy Birthday to Gladys Knight, who turns 73 on Sunday (May 28th)!!! Born in Atlanta, Knight got her start performing gospel music in her local church choir, and by the age of seven she won first prize on the TV show Ted Mack's Original Amateur Hour. Shortly thereafter, Knight helped form the Pips with her brother Merald -- better known as "Bubba" -- and two cousins, Edward Patten and William Guest. Sadly, Guest died at age 74 on December 24th, 2015 from congestive heart failure in Detroit.

The group signed to Motown Records in 1966, where they scored major hits such as "I Heard It Through The Grapevine," "If I Were Your Woman," and "Neither One Of Us (Wants To Be The First To Say Goodbye)." After leaving Motown in the mid-'70s, Knight and the Pips moved to Buddha Records and recorded a string of smashes, including "Midnight Train To Georgia" and "Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me." Gladys Knight & The Pips parted ways in 1989 and Knight continues to record as a solo artist. In 2007 Knight released her critically acclaimed collection of standards, called Before Me. In 2014 she released her latest album, Where My Heart Belongs. Out now is Knight's latest single, titled, "Just A Little."

  • Knight continues to tour frequently and says that she never tires of performing: "I have really, over my lifetime, been given something wonderful. And I didn't know it in the beginning, y'know? It took me a while to realize that I had been blessed with something. But I've been singing all of this time, and y'know, every time I step on that stage, the other blessing is, it's brand new for me. So I just love it, I really do."
  • Gladys Knight will next perform on June 10th in Niagara Falls, New York at Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino.
