Ocotber 15, 2012


Green Day
Warner Bros. Records Chairman and longtime Green Day producer Rob Cavallo spoke to Rolling Stone about Billie Joe Armstrong's stint in rehab, saying it is "no joke." Cavallo told Rolling Stone, "He's under medical supervision for a while to get him clean. His doctors are still evaluating. All I can say is I don't know if we'll see him before or after Christmas. It's basically undetermined when he'll be back."
    
Last week, Green Day dropped off the Voodoo Experience festival, set for later this month in New Orleans. Organizers have added Metallica as a replacement Saturday night headliner instead of Green Day. "We are excited to be part of our first ever Voodoo Music + Arts Experience," said Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich in a statement. "Our good friends and fellow Bay Area residents Green Day had to unfortunately cancel their plans to be there, so we are more than happy to fill in for them in our own unique way. We’re hoping we can fill those very large shoes and do them proud." Metallica will perform Saturday, October 27 as part of the three-day event.

Bruce Springsteen will campaign for President Barack Obama at two events this Thursday. CNN reports the Boss will appear at a campaign event this Thursday, October 18 in Parma, OH, which former President Bill Clinton will also appear at. Springsteen will also be a part of an Obama campaign event in Ames, IA later that day. "Bruce Springsteen's values echo what the President and Vice President stand for: hard work, fairness, integrity," Obama campaign manager Jim Messina said in a statement. "His appearances will help with our get out the vote effort in these critical swing states and we are thrilled with his ongoing support."

American Idol winner Phillip Phillips will release his debut album, The World From The Side Of The Moon, on November 19, reports MTV News. Phillips had a hit over the summer with his single "Home," boosted by its use by NBC in the Summer Olympics.

Mark Hoppus says Blink-182 has begun writing a new album. In an interview with the NME, Hoppus says, "Early next week I go back to Los Angeles to record an iTunes session for Blink-182, and we're starting to write the new record right now. We're going to tour Australia in February with Blink... [so the] proper tour and the new album probably won't happen for about a year."
