Primary Wave Acquires Music Rights Of The Doors' Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek

Primary Wave Music has announced that it has finalized an agreement to acquire the music rights of Robby Krieger and the late Ray Manzarek of the critically acclaimed rock band The Doors.

The acquisition includes their interests in The Doors' music publishing catalog, recordings, trademarks, and merchandise rights and income, among other things.

The Jim Morrison entities and the legendary band's drummer John Densmore retain their interests separately from Primary Wave.

This deal brings into the Primary Wave Music family The Doors' timeless and classic hits across six phenomenal studio albums.

Primary Wave's marketing, digital strategy, branding, licensing, and synch teams will work closely with The Doors' manager Jeff Jampol (Jampol Artist Management, Inc.) to help drive opportunities across the catalog of music.

"After 58 years, and the most magical of times, I've decided to sell my share of The Doors to Primary Wave," said Krieger. "This will enable me to help the many charities I've been involved with, and some new ones too. I know Primary Wave cares about music, art, and about helping legacies go to even bigger levels."

"Under the continued guidance of our manager, Jeff Jampol, Primary Wave will be the right partners in this endeavor to build future generations of new Doors fans," said Manzarek's wife Dorothy Manzarek.

"The Doors are one of the most legendary rock bands of all time. We are looking forward to growing the legacies of Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek," added Larry Mestel, CEO & Founder of Primary Wave Music.

Peter Gabriel Shares 'Dark-Side Mix' Of Latest Single 'Panopticom'

Legendary singer-songwriter Peter Gabriel recently released a brand new mix of his latest single, "Panopticom."

"Panopticom (Dark-Side Mix)" arrives after the release of "Panopticom (Bright Side Mix)," which was the first new music from Gabriel's upcoming album, i/o. "Panopticom (Bright Side Mix)" featured contributions from Brian Eno.

Gabriel previously announced that his music would be released in correlation to the lunar cycle, with a new song arriving each full moon. i/o is his first record since his ninth album, New Blood, which arrived in 2009.

"I'm lucky to have two of the world's best mix engineers; Tchad Blake and Mark 'Spike' Stent, working with me on the music from i/o. R ather than choosing only one of their mixes to release I have decided that people should be able to hear all the great work that they are both doing," Gabriel said in a newsletter to his Full Moon Club.

"I intend to ask them to mix each month's song, with Spike's mixes being called the Bright-Side and Tchad's the Dark-Side. Whether you hear the Bright-Side or the Dark-Side first will vary each full moon, depending on the order we decide to release them," he added. "I know this amount of detail is not for everyone, but I hope those that are into their music production will enjoy their different interpretations."

Jonathan Cain Sues Neal Schon For Allegedly Charging $1 Million To Shared Credit Card

Jonathan Cain Sues Neal Schon For Allegedly Charging $1 Million To Shared Credit Card

Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain has filed a suit against longtime bandmate Neal Schon, alleging that he spent over $1 million on the band's shared American Express card, including $400,000 in a single month last year.

Cain's allegation comes after Schon initiated a legal battle a few months ago by filing a lawsuit against Cain, accusing him of blocking access to "critical" financial records linked to the Amex account.

The countersuit filed by Cain in California state court claims that it was Schon's own actions that had led to those restrictions on his access to the Amex account, including "misusing" the card to deal with his own "financial problems as a result of an extravagant lifestyle."

"Schon's use of the [shared] AMEX card for personal expenses created serious liquidity problems for the band, as the AMEX balance had to be paid every month, and there were insufficient revenues to pay for other expenses as Schon saddled Journey with over $1 million of his personal expenses," Cain's lawyers wrote in the new complaint, filed January 13.

The countersuit also included several specific allegations about Schon's spending habits. It claims Schon promptly spent over $100,000 in January 2022 when given access to the account. Then he allegedly spent a whopping $400,000 at Bergdorf Goodman department store in New York City and other retailers in March.

Cain also says Schon demanded suites at a Hawaiian hotel that cost north of $5,000 per night, then stayed a week longer than necessary and racked up more than $100,000 more in charges on the card.

Def Leppard Share Behind-The-Scenes Footage Of Appearance In 'Bank Of Dave'

Def Leppard Share Behind-The-Scenes Footage Of Appearance In 'Bank Of Dave'

Rock band Def Leppard recently shared behind-the-scenes footage of their appearance in the Netflix movie Bank of Dave.

Bank Of Dave, written by Piers Ashworth and directed by Chris Foggin, is a feel-good romantic comedy, starring Joel Fry, Phoebe Dynevor and Rory Kinnear.

The movie, which is based on the true-life experiences of Dave Fishwick, tells the story of how a working class Burnley man fought to set up a community bank.

Def Leppard vocalist Joe Elliott told Planet Rock about his band's involvement with the film, "Bank Of Dave is kind of like the new Full Monty, the new Amongst Giants or the new Brassed Off. It's one of those classic British low-budget but really cool movies. A true story about a gentleman in Burnley, who was not having much joy with a bank, so he decided to start his own bank. It's only like 12 years ago that this happened and he's a bit of a Def Leppard fan."

He continued, "What they did is they kind of wrote us into the story, and they've obviously enhanced the story somewhat because our part in the movie didn't really happen. One of his mates, the character of one of his friends, knows me for 30 years and says, 'I think I might be able to get Def Leppard to do a fundraiser for you.' So, long story short, we do this fundraiser at Turf Moor (Burnley's football stadium) to raise money so he can start this bank and help out all the locals that were getting no help from the banks."

YES Keyboardist Rick Wakeman To Release New Concept Album 'A Gallery Of The Imagination'

Keyboard legend Rick Wakeman will release his new concept album, A Gallery Of The Imagination, on February 24 on Madfish Music.

The initial idea for A Gallery Of The Imagination stems from Wakeman's first piano teacher Mrs. Symes, who taught him that music was like painting pictures.

Wakeman recalled the advice of his beloved teacher and decided to present the tracks for the new album as if they were pictures in a gallery.

One of the ideas Wakeman would like to pursue around album release is for listeners to draw or paint their own pictures or even create sculptures to the music which, in turn, could be displayed.

"It is a very tactile album," Wakeman explains. "I'd like to feel that people can actually touch the music."

The line-up on the album features The English Rock Ensemble bassist Lee Pomeroy, guitarist Dave Colquhoun, drummer Ash Soan and on vocals Hayley Sanderson. Each artist recorded their individual parts in their own studios.

The album, to be released on multiple formats, is available to pre-order at https://RickWakemanMadfish.lnk.to/AGOTI

Metallica Release New Single 'Screaming Suicide'

Metallica recently released "Screaming Suicide," the second track from their upcoming album, 72 Seasons.

The song is now available to stream and download and as a bonus with all album pre-orders.

The heavy metal band also shared a video for the track, directed by Tim Saccenti.

"Screaming Suicide" addresses the taboo word of suicide, according to Metallica co-founder James Hetfield, who said, "The intention is to communicate about the darkness we feel inside. It's ridiculous to think we should deny that we have these thoughts."

"At one point or another, I believe most people have thought about it. To face it is to speak the unspoken. If it's a human experience, we should be able to talk about it. You are not alone," he added.

72 Seasons, which is the eleventh studio album by Metallica, is set for release on April 14.

An extensive M72 World Tour in support of the album will kick off on April 23, and run through 2023 and 2024.

Bret Michaels Releases New Single 'Back In The Day'

Bret Michaels Releases New Single 'Back In The Day'

Bret Michaels recently released his highly anticipated new single, "Back In The Day."

The song, which is described by Michaels as "a modern-day throwback to a feel-good road trip anthem," takes music fans back to the days when they would scan the radio, searching for their favorite song.

"I do this crazy TikTok thing, and I show people how I write music," Michaels explained during an interview with radio station KSHE 95. "I'm laying a beat, I'm playing the guitar. And I'm like, [sings] 'Back in the day, radio played our favorite songs the DJs say. And crank it up.' And it all hit me, and the song just fell together. It's just a good-vibe song."

The feel good song's video features some never before seen images from the early days of the MTV network and photos done in front of a traditional green screen with pop-up graphics.

"The video reflects the feel of early MTV videos with green screen, pop-up captions and never-before-seen photos and original Hi-8 images of my youth," the Poison frontman explained in a press release. "It is a song that truly reflects on great times and pays homage to the radio stations and DJs that cranked up the music while bringing us great songs that have withstood the test of time, songs that all my friends and I would sing along to then and now."

"Music is a universal language meant to unite us, not divide us, and that is exactly what this song is about," the rocker added. "It's also a hell of a lot of fun to sing along to, as is the video to watch as it weaves a story of my life and the music that rocked it!"
