Michael Tullberg/Getty ImagesOn Monday, family members and musical friends of Butch Trucks came together to salute the late Allman Brothers Band drummer at a private event held at the Cox Capitol Theatre in Macon, Georgia.

Relix.com reports that among the many notable artists who performed at the memorial were ex-Allman Brothers members Jaimoe, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Oteil Burbridge, Marc Quiñones, Jimmy Herring and Jack Pearson.  Others performing included Butch's son Vaylor, who played with his dad in The Freight Train Band; Butch's nephew and Widespread Panic drummer Duane Trucks, and Bruce Katz, keyboardist with Butch's recent group Les Brers.

At one point, Jaimoe, Quiñones and Burbridge were joined by Derek's wife and Tedeschi Trucks Band mate Susan Tedeschi, Peter Levin of the Gregg Allman Band and Wet Willie singer Jimmy Hall for a rendition of blues great Albert King's "As the Years Go Passing By."

Closing out the musical performances was The Yeti Trio, which features Vaylor Trucks. The group, joined by guest drummer Jaimoe, played a touching version of the Horace Silver jazz standard "Song for My Father."

The memorial also featured a variety of tribute speeches delivered by Vaylor Trucks, Jaimoe, Haynes, Burbridge, Butch's goddaughter Kendall Deflin, his widow, Melinda, his daughters Elise and Melody and his son Seth. The closing remarks were given by Trucks’ longtime ABB rhythmic foil Jaimoe.

Butch committed suicide on January 24. He was 69.

ABC/Fred WatkinsLooks like Foo Fighters are about to make a big announcement. The band has launched a countdown clock on its website that will expire this Friday, February 24 at 2:45 p.m. ET.

To get to the countdown clock, you have the click the tab on FooFighters.com labeled "in-flight entertainment" tab. That will bring you to a page asking you to choose a virtual seat on an airplane run by the fictional Obelisk Airlines. When you do, you'll see the countdown displayed on an airplane TV set.

There's no official word on exactly what the Foos are about to announce, but rumors are flying that the band will be headlining this year's Glastonbury. The band was supposed to headline the U.K. mega festival in 2015, but had to pull out after Dave Grohl broke his leg.

Foo Fighters previously launched a mysterious countdown clock in October 2015, which resulted in the release of the band's Saint Cecilia EP.

David M. EarnisseThree members of Chicago -- Robert Lamm, James Pankow and former member Peter Cetera --  are among this year's inductees into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

The artists will receive the honor at the organization's 48th Annual Induction and Awards diner on June 15 in New York City.  Also being inducted this year will be Motown founder Berry Gordy, who deferred his induction in 2016.  Additional honorees this year include songwriter/producer Max Martin, who's written more #1 hits than any other person except for John Lennon and Paul McCartney; rapper Jay Z, the production team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and songwriter, artist and producer Babyface.

Lamm, Pankow and Cetera are responsible for penning nearly every well-known Chicago song, including "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?," "25 or 6 to 4," "Saturday in the Park," "Make Me Smile," "Colour My World, "Just You 'N' Me," "Feelin' Stronger Every Day," "Wishing You Were Here," "If You Leave Me Now," "Baby, What a Big Surprise," "Hard to Say I'm Sorry" and "You're the Inspiration." 

All three were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year as members of Chicago, but Peter Cetera, who left the band in 1985, did not show up for the ceremony.

Babyface is being inducted both for his own work as a solo artist and as the hits he wrote for other artists like Whitney Houston, Eric Clapton, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Boyz II Men and many more.

Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis have more Billboard #1 hits than any other songwriting and production team in history, and have created smashes for Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey and countless others.

"With our 2017 roster of inductees, the Songwriters Hall of Fame moves definitively into recognizing music creators of the 21st century while continuing to honor the greats of earlier decades," said Songwriters Hall of Fame co-chairs Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff and president Linda Moran in a statement.

The statement adds, "The combination of contemporary sounds and timeless hits of the past is certain to make for an unforgettable evening."

Credit: Bill Bernstein2017 marks the 40th anniversary of Foreigner's self-titled debut album, and the band is marking the milestone by launching a year-long celebration that includes headlining concerts, a major summer tour with Cheap Trick and various commemorative events, releases and promotions. The veteran rockers kicked things off in January with a series of headlining shows, and this past week the group launched a contest called the "I Want to Know What Love Is Flyaway Sweepstakes."

Foreigner frontman Kelly Hansen explains the promotion to ABC Radio: "Basically what we're saying is, 'We want to know what love is to our fans.' And so, we're asking them…to send a pic or a video [depicting what love means to them] to ForeignerWhatLoveIs.com." He adds that "the winner of that contest will get a fly-away trip to see us live in Los Angeles at the Greek Theatre on [August 30]."

As for the summer tour with Cheap Trick, which also will feature Jason Bonham and his Led Zeppelin Experience, Hansen says his band is planning to tweak its set "to kind of point to the fact that this is 40 years of Foreigner."

Meanwhile, Foreigner leader Mick Jones recently announced that some of the group's former members, including founding frontman Lou Gramm, will appear at select shows this year, although Hansen tells ABC Radio that nothing is "set in stone" with regard to the guest spots. He adds, however, "I suspect that this will come to fruition."

Other special events Foreigner has planned include orchestral concerts on May 20 and 21 in Lucerne, Switzerland, that guitarist Jeff Pilson reveals "will be filmed and recorded" for an album and a home video that "probably [will] come out later in the year."

Credit: This Ain't Rock'n'RollA U.K. artist collective called This Ain't Rock'n'Roll has announced plans to erect a memorial sculpture paying tribute to David Bowie in Brixton, the London district where the late rock legend was born. The striking structure will be about 30-feet tall and will be a giant three-dimensional depiction of the blue-and-red lightning bolt that's painted on Bowie's face on the cover of his 1973 album Aladdin Sane.

The sculpture, which has the support of the local council, is being created in consultation with Bowie's team in New York and London. The proposed piece, which has been nicknamed the ZiggyZag, will be located on Tunstall Road in central Brixton next to a popular Bowie mural and five blocks from the singer's birthplace.

An international crowd-funding campaign has been launched at CrowdFunder.co.uk that's seeking to raise 990,000 pounds, or about $1.2 million, to help pay for the memorial. Among the many incentives available to people who donate are specially created Bowie-themed prints, pendants, badges and T-shirts. The campaign runs until noon local time on March 21.

This Ain't Rock'n'Roll artist Charlie Waterhouse says of the sculpture, "It's a monument that's at once baffling yet immediately familiar -- a reminder that there's always another narrative. Startling, stupid and utterly joyous in equal measure this is a piece of public art that the whole community can be proud of. It's totally Brixton, utterly Bowie. Where the Man Who Fell to Earth fell to earth, a heartfelt tribute, from one London character to another."

KMazur/WireImageA Porsche 928 that once belonged to late Beatles guitarist George Harrison is up for bid as part of a Fab Four-themed memorabilia sale that will be held by Omega Auctions in Warrington, U.K. The vehicle, which Harrison purchased new in 1980 and owned for four years, is expected to bring in as much as 20,000 pounds, or about $25,000.

BBC News reports that the sports car's current owner, Leeds resident Raj Sedha, purchased the vehicle in 2003 and intended to use it for parts, although he initially didn't know that it had been previously owned by Harrison, who died of cancer in 2001.

Sedha tells BBC News that he was about start taking the automobile apart when his wife looked at the logbook and discovered who its famous one-time owner was.

"My partner ran out with the book and said, 'stop dismantling it, it belongs to George Harrison,'" he recalls. "I said, 'who's George Harrison?'"

Sedha then put the car in his garage for eight years before he made the decision to restore the car and sell it.

"We want it to go to someone who's going to appreciate it," he tells BBC News.

Omega Auctions executive Paul Fairweather says of the vehicle, "For anybody that's into cars and The Beatles, this is a must-have."

The car is part of the same Beatles auction that will feature a recently reported rare film of the band performing at a 1964 concert in Montreal.

When he owned the Porsche 928, Harrison kept the car at his Friar Park estate in Henley-on-Thames, U.K., where he housed more than 100 other sports cars he collected.

Anthony Harvey/Getty ImagesPaul McCartney just got back together with his fellow surviving Beatles band mate Ringo Starr to lend his bass talents to the drummer's upcoming solo album. Starr revealed the exciting news by posting a photo of him and McCartney together in the studio on Sunday on his official Twitter feed, along with a message that reads, "Thanks for coming over man and playing Great bass. I love you man peace and love."

Ringo also tweeted a second photo that day apparently from the same session revealing that his brother-in-law Joe Walsh joined him and Sir Paul. "[W]hat a day I'm having peace and love," Starr declares in a note accompanying the pic.

The last time McCartney contributed to one of Starr's albums was on 2010's Y Not. On that record, Paul played bass on the song "Peace Dream" and added vocals to the tune "Walk with You."

Meanwhile, Ringo has posted a series of tweets during the past week or so revealing some of the other guest musicians who have been joining him in the studio while he makes his forthcoming album. Among them are Eagles bassist Timothy B. Schmit, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench, Mr. Mister frontman and current All Starr Band member Richard Page and acclaimed session bassist Nathan East.

Frank Micelotta/Getty ImagesKurt Cobain would've celebrated his 50th birthday today. The iconic Nirvana frontman was born February 20, 1967 in Aberdeen, Washington.

Cobain co-founded Nirvana in 1987 with bassist Krist Novoselic. The band released their debut album, Bleach, in 1989. Nevermind, Nirvana's gigantic breakthrough smash album, and the first with Dave Grohl on drums, arrived two years later. Nirvana released what would be their final album, In Utero, in 1993.

On April 8, 1994, Cobain was found dead at his home in Seattle. His death was ruled a suicide, though conspiracy theories continue to persist. He's survived by his wife, Courtney Love, and his daughter, Frances Bean Cobain.

Nirvana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014. Novoselic and Grohl played together during the induction ceremony with a variety of female singers, including Lorde, Joan Jett, Kim Gordon and St. Vincent, handling lead vocals.

Sub PopSoundgarden has shared a remixed version of their song "Flower," which will appear on the forthcoming reissue of the band's 1988 debut album, Ultramega OK. You can listen to the new take on "Flower" now via YouTube.

The Ultramega OK reissue will be released March 10. The 19-track collection features a remixed version of the original album, plus "early versions" of six songs.

For Soundgarden, remixing Ultramega OK has been a goal decades in the making. When the album was originally released, the band wasn't happy with the final mix, and planned to remix it for subsequent pressings. However, their career took off shortly after, and the remix project fell through the cracks. They were able to pick it up again in 2016 after reacquiring the original Ultramega OK multi-track tapes.

Soundgarden is currently working on their seventh studio album, the follow-up to their 2012 comeback effort King Animal. They'll be headlining a number of music festivals this spring, including Carolina Rebellion, Rock on the Range and Rocklahoma.

Frank Hoensch/Redferns via Getty ImagesThe North American rights to a new documentary titled The Quiet One that takes an in-depth look at the life of longtime Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman have been acquired by Sundance Selects, Deadline reports.

The film is in production now and is being made with the full cooperation of the 80-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, who was a member of The Stones from 1962 to 1993.

The Quiet One will examine the highlights and low points of Wyman's life and career with help from previously unseen film footage and photos shot by the rocker himself, as well as memorabilia he collected over the years. Bill also famously kept a daily diary during his time with The Rolling Stones and beyond that likely is serving as source material for the doc.

"My life has been an extraordinary adventure," Wyman says in a statement. "The time feels right to delve into the archive and tell my story before I croak."

The movie is being directed by Oliver Murray, and is his first feature-length project.

Jonathan Sehring and Lisa Schwartz, co-presidents of IFC Films/Sundance Selects, say in a statement, "Bill Wyman is legendary not only because of the fact that he was a founding member of the Rolling Stones but also because he had unfettered access to the extraordinary world of rock 'n' roll over several decades."

The statement adds that the two are "thrilled" to "let the world see this amazing behind-the-scenes imagery of the rock 'n' roll era."
