Michael KeelRitchie Blackmore has a holiday gift for you.

The former Deep Purple and Rainbow guitarist is reissuing Winter Carols, an album of holiday music from Blackmore’s Night, his long-running project with singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Candice Night.

Released in celebration of Blackmore’s Night’s 2oth anniversary, the reissue will be available on digital formats this Friday and on CD October 13. It includes brand-new recordings of “Deck The Halls,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Oh Christmas Tree,” with special arrangements by Blackmore.

Blackmore describes the Renaissance-inspired approach employed by himself and Night as "fantasy music for all ages."

He explains, “The origin of the word ‘carol’ means ‘dance.’ I am naturally attracted to these melodies. As a kid, I would go from house to house during the holiday time and sing them just to earn some money. As an adult, I thought I could play them and make more money!”

Striking a slightly less commercial tone, Night says, “We are entranced by the magic of the (holiday) season. The sentiments of the holidays are what we try to express in our music year round -- so this CD is a natural progression. All the music we craft and create has always been about love, unity and friendship. These songs as a whole are beautiful unifying carols…Everyone can join in.”

For more information, visit the group’s website.

Here's the track listing for Winter Carols:

"Deck the Halls" 
"God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" 
"Oh Christmas Tree" 
"Hark! The Herald Angels Sing/Come All Ye Faithful" 
"I Saw Three Ships" 
"Winter (Basse Dance)" 
"Ding Dong Merrily on High" 
"Ma-O-Tzur" 
"Good King Wenceslas" 
"Lord of the Dance/Simple Gifts" 
"We Three Kings" 
"Wish You Were Here" 
"Emmanuel" 
"Christmas Eve" 
"We Wish You a Merry Christmas"

Roswell Records/RCA RecordsFoo Fighters are rocketing towards the top of the Billboard 200 thanks to their new album, Concrete and Gold. According to the publication, the latest effort from Dave Grohl and company is headed for a number-one debut on the chart with an estimated total of 120,000 equivalent album units.

Given their status as one of the biggest rock bands in the world, it's perhaps surprising that Foo Fighters have only topped the Billboard 200 once before in their career. They debuted at number one for the first time with the 2011 album Wasting Light. Still, every Foo album since their 1997 sophomore effort The Colour and the Shape has peaked in the Billboard 200's top 10.

Concrete and Gold, the ninth studio Foo Fighters album, includes the singles "Run" and "The Sky Is a Neighborhood." The disc features guest appearances from Paul McCartney, Justin Timberlake, Alison Mosshart of The Kills, and Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men.

If you need even more Foo in your life, the band will appear in the latest installment of "Carpool Karaoke" on tonight's episode of The Late Late Show, airing at 12:37 a.m. ET on CBS.

ABC/Adam TalorIt's official: Bono and Paul McCartney have good heads for business.

The duo is included in Forbes magazine's 100 Greatest Business Minds, alongside SpaceX and Tesla's Elon Musk, Microsoft's Paul Allen, Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos, Oprah Winfrey and others.

In an essay, Bono explains, “Capitalism is not immoral, but it is amoral. And it requires our instruction. It's a wild beast that needs to be tamed, a better servant than master. That's my philosophy with (RED), which partners with corporations to direct profits to fighting HIV/AIDS…. I realized that going to big companies and trying to break into their more modest philanthropy funds was a huge missed opportunity. It was their robust marketing and publicity budgets that we needed.”

The U2 frontman admits, “Some of the most selfish people I've met are artists -- I'm one of them -- and some of the most selfless people I've ever met are in business, people like Warren Buffett.”

For his part, regarding the raised eyebrows when Michael Jackson bought the Beatles’ publishing rights, McCartney writes, “It all goes back to the very beginning of the Beatles, when we signed the music publishing contract. We didn't care what it was…we wanted to get published. It turned out to be basically a slave contract; no matter how successful we made the company, we didn't get a raise.

Paul concludes, “It's so important to have good people around you. That's why I'm anywhere near this list. My lawyers…are really smart, both great guys, and I listen to them. In recent years, they've helped me recover my copyrights…If I'm wheeling and dealing, life becomes very difficult for me. I've got to reserve a portion of my brain for writing songs.”

ABC/Randy HolmesChris Cornell will be posthumously honored for his philanthropic and humanitarian efforts at the L.A. Chefs for Human Rights benefit dinner, held September 25 at the Los Angeles restaurant Cassia. 

During his life, Cornell and his wife Vicky helped support vulnerable children around the world through their Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation. Two months before his death, he released a new song called "The Promise," which he wrote for the film of the same name, about the Armenian genocide.

"We're deeply honored to celebrate the life-changing work Vicky and Chris have accomplished, and which she continues to carry on," says Kim Luu-Ng, human rights lawyer and co-owner of Cassia.

Vicky will accept the award on behalf of her late husband.

The L.A. Chefs for Human Rights dinner will raise money for the Program for Torture Victims, a rehabilitation program devoted to helping survivors of torture.

Genesis PublicationsMick Fleetwood's new limited-edition book, Love that Burns -- A Chronicle of Fleetwood Mac: Volume 1, 1967-1974, officially gets published today. As its title suggests, the book delves into the band's early history, and is packed with rare photos, memorabilia and personal recollections from Fleetwood and many of the group's other members.

Love That Burns' main focus is on Fleetwood Mac's original lineup, led by blues-guitar virtuoso Peter Green. Although Green was the group's main singer, guitarist and songwriter, Fleetwood tells ABC Radio Green shied away from the spotlight. Mick says this attitude is reflected by the fact that Peter chose to name the band after its rhythm section -- Fleetwood and bassist John McVie -- and was furious when the group's label included his name in their debut album's title, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac.

"He was the founding father that formed the spirit that continues through today," Fleetwood maintains, "where everyone was always accepted for who they are, what they are, and bring what you have."

The band's name actually comes from a 1967 instrumental recording that Green, Fleetwood and McVie made while they were members of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. The trio recorded the track using studio time that Mayall gave Green as a birthday present. When the recording was done and Peter was asked what the tune's name was, he said, "call it 'Fleetwood Mac,' 'cause John [McVie] and Mick are playing on it."

That track and the 1968 Fleetwood Mac tune "Love That Burns" are included on a special seven-inch vinyl picture disc packaged with the new book.

Fleetwood will celebrate the book's publication at a Q&A and meet-and-greet event at London's Piccadilly Theatre on Tuesday, September 26.

ABC/Randy HolmesThe film Singles was released in theaters September 18, 1992: 25 years ago today. Set in Seattle during the grunge era, the movie featured music from Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden and the late Chris Cornell.

In a piece for Rolling Stone in honor of the anniversary, director Cameron Crowe remembers what it was like to work with Cornell, who died by suicide earlier this year.

"Chris Cornell was somebody who I just thought, 'This guy belongs in the movie,'" Crowe writes. "I loved Soundgarden -- they were the greatest live show I'd seen. I had real strong feelings about Soundgarden and about Chris with this huge heart of his."

"He was accepting Eddie [Vedder] into Seattle and he was helping me know what it was to live here, at this time and this place -- that feeling of, this guy really matters to this city," Crowe adds.

In fact, Crowe originally wanted Cornell to play the role of Cliff Poncier, the dopey lead singer of the fictional band Citizen D**k. Instead, the role went to Matt Dillon, but Cornell still made a cameo in the movie as himself.

"I thought, maybe we can have the best of all worlds," Crowe writes. "Chris can be a character who plays, and we don't have to make him play a wannabe musician. We can just have him be Chris."

Cornell and Crowe would continue to work together up until the Soundgarden frontman took his own life this past May.

"For any of us lucky enough to know him or experience his gift, there's no past tense," Crowe says of Cornell. "He's that vivid of a guy. I can't talk about him in the past. I talk about him in the present and I always will."

A deluxe version of the Singles soundtrack was released earlier this year.

Eric Ryan AndersonA roster of musical greats including Sting, Elvis Costello, k.d. lang and members of the Lumineers will help celebrate the life and music of the late Leonard Cohen.

Have a small memorial for close friends and family in Los Angeles…and if you want a public event do it in Montreal.' I see this concert as a fulfillment of my duties to my father that we gather in Montreal to ring the bells that still can ring.”

Michael Loccisano/Getty ImagesEven at age 70, Ronnie Wood manages to keep rolling along.

The Rolling Stones guitarist, who had surgery for lung cancer earlier this year, told the Guardian when it comes to sex, “You’ve got to have that every day.” Wood married his third wife, theater producer Sally Humphreys, in 2012. Their twin daughters, Gracie and Alice, were born last year. The rocker also has four other children.

In a question and answer session with the British publication, Wood – who joined the Stones in 1975 after stints in the Jeff Beck Group and the Faces – said the song he’d like played at his funeral would be “The Resurrection Shuffle.” For the record, that track was a 1971 hit for Northern English rock trio Ashton, Gardner and Dyke.

Wood also characterized himself as “fearless” and said the most important lesson life has taught him is, “Don’t give up.” As for his guilty pleasure, Wood responded, "I am not guilty about it, but caviar.”

Wood chose “X-ray vision” as his desired superpower, explaining, “I was always intrigued by that when I was a kid.”

When asked what makes him unhappy, Wood responded, “Not a lot – I’m quite a happy bloke.” Expanding on that theme, he explained, “Right now is a pretty good time in my life. I am existing on three-monthly check-ups, but, yeah, I am very grateful.”

ABC/Fred WatkinsAs one of the biggest rock bands in the world, Foo Fighters have accomplished a lot, including selling millions of albums and packing arenas across the globe. But when asked to name which Foo accomplishment he's most proud of, Dave Grohl picked the time his band actually caused a natural phenomenon.

In an interview with the New Zealand Herald, Grohl remembers what happened when Foo Fighters performed in the town of Western Springs in that country in 2011.

"We played at some speedway outside of town and the audience was jumping around so much that it triggered the seismograph," he says. "We have that seismograph readout of the show on the wall in the studio."

"I'm probably more proud of that, then anything we've ever done," Grohl declares.

Grohl's also pretty proud of the new Foo Fighters album, Concrete and Gold, which is out now.

L-R: Comm. of Mass. Dept of Conservation and Recreation Leo Roy, Don Henley, Mass. Sec. of Energy and Environment Affairs Matthew Beaton (Credit: Scot Miller)Back in 1990, The Eagles' Don Henley founded the Walden Woods Project to preserve the works of author and philosopher Henry David Thoreau and Walden Pond, which inspired his most famous work.  That's why he traveled to Massachusetts last week to unveil some new exhibits at the Walden Pond State Reservation Visitor Center.

Among the educational exhibits Don introduced during a public ceremony on Thursday was an 18-minute movie, executive produced by Ken Burns, about Thoreau's life and legacy.  Another exhibit, "Where's Your Walden," asks visitors to share a place in the world that's as special to them as Walden Pond was to Thoreau.

At the event -- which marked the 200th anniversary of Thoreau's birth -- Don told the audience, "Thoreau was a keen observer of the natural world.  His writings provide insights into some of the most urgent issues of our time...understanding and protecting the biological diversity of life; living on a planet of limited resources; and the role of personal responsibility in today's world." 

He added that he hoped that visitors to Walden would be leave the place "inspired and ready to engage in the environmental and societal challenges of our times."

Henley was deeply influenced by Thoreau's writings in college.  Over the years, he's staged benefit concerts, featuring big names like Sting, Elton John and Neil Young, to fund the Walden Woods Project.  He also donated some of the proceeds from the Eagles' Hell Freezes Over album and tour to the cause.

ABC/Randy HolmesOzzy and Jack's World Detour, the reality series starring Ozzy Osbourne and his son Jack that premiered last year on the History channel, will return for a second season, but it will air on a different channel, Deadline reports. The show will move to History's sister network A&E for a new 10-episode installment.

Among the historic and interesting sites and locations Ozzy and Jack visited during the show's first season were Colonial Williamsburg; Jamestown; The Alamo; Memphis, TN; Roswell, NM and Cuba. Speaking with ABC Radio several months back, Jack Osbourne, who's one of the series' executive producers, revealed his plans for how the show's second season would differ from the first.

"I think the next season we're gonna do one continual road trip," he revealed. "We're actually gonna go…eight to 10 weeks, like, in a van and we're just gonna go."

He added, "We're talking [about] kind of working our way across the country, then up to Alaska. So, we're gonna get a few Southern episodes and we're really gonna kind of theme it out to be very Americana."

Jack also said he was pleasantly surprised by how well-received the show was.

"We got really good numbers and…we got really good reviews, so it's that thing where, it came out better than I thought it would," Ozzy's son admitted.

"I kind of thought it would turn into, like, a little bit of a s*** show, but [I think] we kind of figured out our groove and [I think] it's just funny enough and just factual enough to where it kind of works."

Jack also noted that his favorite thing about his experience making the program was having "people coming up to me [and saying,] 'I'm learning so much.'"

Blue Rider PressBeach Boys fans who've haven't read frontman Mike Love's 2016 memoir, Good Vibrations: My Life as a Beach Boy, now can buy a more portable version of the book: a paperback edition was just released.

Love tells ABC Radio he was inspired to write the memoir because he wanted to share his side of The Beach Boys' story, and defend himself against the negative ways he's been portrayed in some accounts of the band's history.

"There had been so many mis-truths, misconceptions and such [a] biased way of looking at things, often by people who weren't even there," Love maintains. "So I thought it would be a really good idea to write about my...life's experiences and my contribution to the group."

As you'd expect, the book delves into both the high points and rough periods in the group's history. Among the latter, Love says, was his late cousin Dennis Wilson's short-lived friendship with cult leader Charles Manson, and suing his cousin Brian Wilson over songwriting credits for many classic Beach Boys songs.

On the positive side, Love lists the 1966 single "Good Vibrations" going to #1, and The Beach Boys being voted the top group in the U.K., over The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. He says another highlight was the band playing July 4 shows in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., in 1985 to a combined million-and-a-half people.

Despite the personal drama, conflicts and tragedies the band has gone through, Love says The Beach Boys' story is an overwhelmingly happy one, thanks to the joy the group's music has brought to their fans.

"[The] warmth and character of the harmonies together has been such a huge influence and loved all around the world," Love maintains. "It's almost inexplicable."

Erika Goldring/Getty ImagesFollowing protests in St. Louis following the acquittal of a white former police officer in the 2011 fatal shooting of a black man, U2 has canceled a scheduled Saturday night performance in the city.

In a statement released Saturday morning, U2 and concert promoter Live Nation declared, "We have been informed by the St. Louis Police Department that they are not in a position to provide the standard protection for our audience as would be expected for an event of this size. We have also been informed that local crowd security personnel would not be at full capacity."

The statement continued: "In light of this information, we cannot in good conscience risk our fans’ safety by proceeding with tonight’s concert. As much as we regret having to cancel, we feel it is the only acceptable course of action in the current environment."

Dozens of people have been arrested since Friday’s acquittal of white former police officer Jason Stockley in the December 20, 2011 fatal shooting of Lamar Smith, a black man, who was shot five times following a high-speed chase and crash. Stockley was charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the shooting.

Fans who purchased tickets for U2’s Saturday night performance at St. Louis' The Dome at America’s Center will receive a full refund.

U2’s currently touring to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their landmark 1987 album, The Joshua Tree.

Now, the metal legends have shared an official live video of the performance, which you can watch on YouTube.

"ManUNkind" begins with a bass solo from Robert Trujillo, which he wrote as a tribute to the late Cliff Burton.

"In a way, that to me is a tip of the hat to Cliff Burton and the spirit of Cliff," Trujillo told Canada's Exclaim! TV. "If you hear that little thing before 'ManUNkind,' for me personally, that was with Cliff in mind."

Metallica is currently touring Europe in support of Hardwired...to Self-Destruct. The outing will last all the way into May 2018.

Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images for EJAFAfter a much-publicized affair with his hair stylist -- which nearly caused the permanent breakup of his marriage -- Ozzy Osbourne recently renewed his vows and celebrated his 35th wedding anniversary with his wife, Sharon. Osbourne spoke about his and Sharon's sometimes-rocky relationship in a new Rolling Stone interview.

Asked to reveal the secret to a long marriage, Ozzy says, "It's a rock & roll thing -- you rock and you roll. You take the good with the bad."

As for how he feels about Sharon -- and the world -- finding out about his extramarital activities, Ozzy admits, "I'm not proud of all that s***. I upset my wife and I upset my family and I made a lot of shock and shame. I love my wife, and it made me realize what a f****** idiot I've been."

Ozzy says their marriage has endured, because, he says, "We love each other. I love her, and she loves me. She was brought up in [the] music industry, so she's not like a schoolteacher who married a rock star. There's no other woman I really want to spend the rest of my life with."

Sharon's father, Don Arden, originally managed Black Sabbath. After he fired Ozzy from the group, Sharon started dating him and became his manager.

Osbourne also told Rolling Stone that he plans to continue his solo career, despite Black Sabbath's retirement.

"[Sabbath has] retired but I haven't," he declares. "It's like I'm jumping off one boat onto another. People forget, I was with Sabbath from '68 to '79, but…I've been on my own thing for a lot longer than when I was with Sabbath."

"I love what Sabbath did for me and I love what I did for Sabbath," he adds. "But it's not the be-all, end-all of my own whole career."
