Joe Perry Collapses Backstage at Hollywood Vampires Show

Aerosmith co-founder Joe Perry collapsed backstage during a concert in Coney Island on Sunday while performing with his supergroup The Hollywood Vampires. The guitarist walked off-stage in the middle of a song and lost consciousness and collapsed once backstage. Bandmates Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp said Perry had mentioned feeling ill before the show, but was not forthright with exactly how ill he was feeling. Alice Cooper later tweeted that Perry was in stable condition and doing well, and the band is still scheduled to play tomorrow night in Ohio.

David Gilmour Returns to Pompeii, Plays 2 Night Show

Late last week, former Pink Floyd frontman David Gilmour played a 2-night set inside of Italy’s famous Pompeii amphitheater; the same amphitheater Pink Floyd filmed the cult-concert film Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii. This time, however, Gilmour played to a live audience. The setlist struck a healthy balance between songs from Gilmour’s solo career and Pink Floyd classics Gilmour- some of which he hadn’t performed in ten to twenty years-, including “One of These Days” and “The Great Gig in the Sky.” Missing from the setlist was the song “Echoes,” which Gilmour acknowledged by saying it was too difficult to perform without co-writer Rick Wright.

Website Discogs To Release Android Version of App Tomorrow

Discogs, the website famous for being a trusted database and marketplace for music on vinyl, CD, etc. is finally releasing the Android version of its app that was released for iOS back in February. In addition to cataloging your collection and tracking your wishlist, users can find record stores in their immediate vicinity. Perhaps most exciting is the app’s barcode scanner feature that allows users to have the most correct version of an album logged in their collection as well as being able to find out just how much that sick record store find is actually worth. The Discogs app launches for Android tomorrow.
