Quick Hits: Guns N' Roses, Green Day, Aerosmith, Ozzfest, Led Zeppelin, Bouncing Souls
October 21, 2008

At long last, Guns N' Roses will have a new single impacting at radio. "Chinese Democracy," the title track to the long-delayed upcoming album of the same name, will arrive at radio tomorrow morning. In other GNR news, the man who allegedly recently leaked tracks from Chinese Democracy has pled innocent in federal court, according to Reuters. Kevin Cogill has been charged by the FBI with violating federal copyright law for posting nine songs from the album online in August, and was arrested in L.A. Chinese Democracy is expected to be released at last in November exclusively at Best Buy.

Green Day has released another video of the band recording their new album in the studio with producer Butch Vig. The clip shows bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tre Cool working on new material. In related news, Dirnt is a father for the second time, as his girlfriend gave birth earlier this month to their son Brixton Michael. The new video clip can be seen below:

Aerosmith is eager to finish off their first new studio record since 2004 and their first of all-original material since 2001. Guitarist Brad Whitford tells Billboard, "We're sitting on a bunch of music we've already recorded for a new album. We haven't gone back into the studio the put the final touches on it and get it done and still don't know when we're gonna do that. Hopefully it'll be sooner rather than later." Progress has been hindered by guitarist Joe Perry's knee surgery and frontman Steven Tyler spending time in rehab this year.

Following this year's one-day Ozzfest in Dallas, it looks like the event will go back to being a full tour next year. It also will not be free like the Ozzfest of 2007, which was paid for by sponsors. "We're going back to what we originally were," Sharon Osbourne told MTV News. "We've given the real good fans a free show for one time, and now, it's back to business as usual." When pressed for next summer's lineup, Osbourne smiled, "We can't tell you now!"

Atlantic/Rhino Entertainment will release a limited-edition CD box set containing all 10 of Led Zeppelin's albums in mini-LP replicas with artwork from the original U.K. LP sleeves. The sleeves included in the set feature the original printing of the groupís debut, which used turquoise ink on the cover for the bandís name and the Atlantic Records logo, as well as all six covers released for In Through the Out Door, Led Zeppelinís final studio album. The Led Zeppelin Definitive Collection Mini LP Replica Box Set is due on November 4.

East Coast Punk luminaries The Bouncing Souls will celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2009 by releasing a new song on the first of every month for the entire year. The songs will be available online or in quarterly installments (with a bonus track) on 7" vinyl from their own label, Chunksaah Records. The band also has announced the second annual Home For The Holidays concert series at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ from December 26 through 28, featuring the Souls headlining each show with different opening bands.
