Artists Comment on the Event:
“Like so many other proud Bostonians who have been extremely generous, we are honored to step up and do our part to help the victims and their families,” said Donnie Wahlberg, New Kids on the Block. “Hopefully this event will not only raise money, but spirits as well.”
“The One Fund event at the Garden this May 30th is destined to be a true Boston landmark. From the promoters to the sound & lights, to the performers and the Garden staff; everyone involved has responded from the heart in a spontaneous and simultaneous desire to be there, and to do what we can for the city we love. I am honored to be a part of it, and…I can’t wait” said James Taylor.
According to a statement posted by Slayer on their Facebook page, guitarist Jeff Hanneman passed away today due to liver failure:
Slayer is devastated to inform that their bandmate and brother, Jeff Hanneman, passed away at about 11AM this morning near his Southern California home. Hanneman was in an area hospital when he suffered liver failure. He is survived by his wife Kathy, his sister Kathy and his brothers Michael and Larry, and will be sorely missed.
Our Brother Jeff Hanneman, May He Rest In Peace (1964 – 2013)
We’d like to extend our sincere condolences to Slayer and Jeff Hanneman’s family, friends and fans.
The war between man and machine is inevitable. Luckily, we have Fear Factory standing between us and extinction. Their World Industrialist Tour hit the Webster Theater with some very talented supporting bands, and the legendary mechanized metallers were ready for action despite the surprisingly sparse crowd.

When Forevermore was released back in 2011 my initial thoughts were “Coverdale was able to bring back vintage Snake while still sounding fresh and current”. A ton of credit must go to Doug Aldrich whose contributions to the songwriting stood out even more here than on 2008’s “Good To Be Bad”. Tracks like “Love Will Set You Free” and “Steal Your Heart Away” are some of the strongest Snake tracks ever. Aldrich is able to pick up the mantle passed down from Micky Moody, John Sykes, Adrian Vandenberg, Vivian Campbell, Steve Vai and leave his indelible mark on the legacy of one of rocks classic acts.

Legendary drummer Carl Palmer, a founding member of progressive rock groups Emerson, Lake & Palmer and Asia, will bring his power trio to the Narrows Center for the Arts in Fall River, Mass., on Sunday, May 5, 2013 and we have a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky winner!
Email email@example.com with the subject “Carl Palmer”. One winner will be selected at random on Friday May 3rd to attend the show with a guest.
Carl Palmer is touring in support of his upcoming DVD release Decade which will be available at the show.
The band’s tour, billed as “Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy,” will showcase some of ELP’s finest pieces of music. Among the songs Palmer is expected to feature are “Tarkus,” “Fanfare for the Common Man,” “Hoedown,” and “Pictures At An Exhibition,” among others.
For nearly four decades, Palmer has thrilled listeners and audiences alike with some of music’s most memorable bands including Atomic Rooster, The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, and Asia. Along the way, his dazzling speed and mastery of the drums, combined with his infectious stage personality, have secured for him a respected place in history as one of Rock and Roll’s greatest drummers. Joining Palmer onstage will be guitarist Paul Bielatowicz and bassist Simon Fitzpatrick.
For this intimate concert, Palmer will meet fans after the show, doing autograph signings at the venue so help spread the word.
