Roger Waters has been collaborating with a Quebec opera house on “Another Brick in the Wall: The Opera.”
Originally, Waters was against the collaboration, but after he was sent music from the company, he had a change of heart. “I sat there not expecting to be moved, and I was moved,” Waters explains. “Very moved. So I approach this project with great enthusiasm.” The Opéra de Montréal production premieres in March 2017 as part of a celebration for Quebec’s 375th birthday.

Crosby, Stills and Nash is done? Graham Nash is saying he doesn’t like David Crosby right now and it’s been building for a while. “You asked me if there’s more of CSN? My answer is ‘no,’ and that’s very sad, because we’re pretty good,” he says. “But I don’t like David Crosby right now. He’s been awful to me these last two years, just f**king awful. I’ve been there and saved his f**king ass for 45 years – and he treated me like sh*t.”

Cheap Trick will become Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members on April 8th. And they’re not just taking it easy. They’ve released the new track “When I Wake Up Tomorrow.” “This song always reminds me of a sultry David Bowie song,” Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen explains. “I liked it from the first time we attempted to do it. It’s just a moody, interesting piece with some heavy guitars in the middle. The last line is ‘Are you gonna be here when I wake up tomorrow,’ and then Bowie passed away after we recorded it.”
