(hennemusic) Metallica are streaming pro-shot video of a performance of their 1983 classic, “Whiplash”, from a rare club show in San Francisco, CA on September 16.

The “Kill ‘Em All” track was the opening song of the band’s live return to the stage at the 500-capacity venue The Independent following a live music industry shutdown during the pandemic.

The club put single wristbands for the 500-capacity venue on sale in the afternoon for $20 each, and they quickly sold-out within an hour.

“It had been 738 days since we played in front of an audience…,” posted Metallica the day after the show. “SF!!!!! Thank you for comin’ out to The Independent last night on such short notice! It was so amazing to play for you again! We’ll see ya again in December at Chase Center for the 40th…”

The group’s appearance came days after the release of a series of 30th anniversary reissues of their self-titled fifth album. Watch the video here.

Coinciding with the album’s announcement, Nelson has released a reworking of his song ‘Family Bible’, which he wrote in the ’50s but sold to Paul Buskirk. He later recorded it for his 1971 album, ‘Yesterday’s Wine’. Listen below:

Scott Gorham Leaves Black Star Riders To Relaunch Thin Lizzy

Social Media capture

(hennemusic) Scott Gorham has revealed plans to relaunch Thin Lizzy in sync with news that he has exited the lineup of Black Star Riders. Gorham was part of the lineup that transitioned from Thin Lizzy to Black Star Riders in 2012, and appeared on the group’s four studio albums while occasionally performing under both brands over past decade.

Black Star Riders vocalist Ricky Warwick (also a touring member of Thin Lizzy), broke the news this week of Gorham’s departure alongside details of a new record deal for the group, saying, “We are very sorry to see Scott go but we discussed a very heavy World touring commitment on the new record and Scott decided he wanted to concentrate just on Thin Lizzy – and being the legend he is none of us can blame him. We all wish him the best and he will be looking to put Thin Lizzy back out on the road from 2022 onwards with a busy schedule, so he won’t be missing me too much!”

Now, Gorham is sharing his own thoughts on the lineup change and his plans moving forward. “As you all are now aware, I have decided to leave Black Star Riders to concentrate on putting Thin Lizzy on the road again next year (which will include Ricky Warwick),” explains Gorham on social media. “Leaving a close-knit working environment, shared with good friends over 8 years is never easy, but I felt that the time was right, especially knowing that Ricky and the band and how great they are, would be in no danger at all to carry on without me. I am certain that they will build on past successes and I look forward to listening to their new album.

“I wanted to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our fans for your fantastic support over the years, we always had a blast touring and being able to shake hands with so many of you in person. Thank you also to all the well-wishers who have posted such great comments on the web – it was very much appreciated.

“There has been some speculation regarding the state of my health,” he continued, “so I’d like to let you all know that I am very well, having had the 2 Covid jabs and getting my flu shot tomorrow and trying to improve my game of golf, which has gone south recently… unfortunately.

“Regarding Thin Lizzy concerts in 2022 – this is currently in the planning stages and I will make sure to let you know of our progress regarding line-ups and dates. Once again, I miss you all and thank you all and hopefully see you all very soon. Alright then… who’s buying?!” Read more here.

Listen to Bartees Strange’s new song ‘Weights’

Bartees Strange has shared a new single, ‘Weights’, lifted from a forthcoming deluxe edition of his 2020 debut album ‘Live Forever’.

“This is about the ones that got away,” Strange commented in a statement accompanying the buzzy, energetic new cut. “Going back and forth in my head about relationships that could have happened, missing that it didn’t, and finally realizing I gotta let the weight of it all go.”

Listen to ‘Weights’ below:

The new expanded edition of ‘Live Forever’ is set to arrive on October 1. Other additional tracks include a new version of album track ‘Kelly Rowland’ titled ‘Free Kelly Rowland’ that will feature Armand Hammer, and a redux of ‘Flagey God’.

Strange released the original version of ‘Live Forever’ nearly a year ago, in October of 2020. NME later included the record on its list of the 20 best debut albums of the year, praising the way it “resists conforming to genre at every turn, blending shades of indie rock, hip-hop, punk, country and more — often within the same song”.

Since then, Strange has performed as part of NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series, covered Bon Iver‘s ‘Skinny Love’ and last month shared a remix of Phoebe Bridgers‘ song ‘Kyoto’.

Alan Jackson Releases New Video For “Where Have You Gone”

Embedded from

Alan Jackson passionately invokes the legacy of country icons Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Hank Williams and Tammy Wynette in his latest video for “Where Have You Gone.” The black and white Peter Zavadil-directed clip was filmed at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium.

Jackson is seen alone on the stage at country’s “Mother Church,” surrounded by instruments – a fiddle, steel guitar, banjo, upright bass, acoustic guitar, simple drums. “This is Alan’s idea…capturing all of this incredible history that’s happened here,” Zavadil shares. “The goal was to make the Ryman as much of a character in this as Alan is the artist onstage,” he adds. “This is a magical place.”

Related, Jackson adds, “The song kind of starts out like it’s a lost love. I love what I call ‘real country music,’ and I just see it fading away more than I ever have,” he explains. “I just wanted to say that.” Moreover, to The Tennessean, Jackson noted earlier this year regarding his inspirations, “Man, I love real country music and those instruments and the melodies and what the songs are about. That’s what it’s always been for me, and I still love that.”

“Where Have You Gone” is the title track from Jackson’s 2021 album of the same name. So far, the album has topped Billboard’s country album chart, while also becoming his 15th Top 10 on the all-genre Billboard Top 200. It also topped the country charts in the UK, Canada and Australia.

As well, Jackson is set to wrap his 2021 tour schedule with a “hometown concert” Friday, October 8 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
