Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne's private jet made an emergency landing in Texas on Thursday after the rapper suffered seizure-like symptoms, according to TMZ. Weezy was transported to a local hospital and remained there for several hours before being released around 6 p.m. No other details have been released about his condition, but TMZ was told by a source that Wayne is "doing better." The rapper is currently prepping for the release of his 10th solo album, I Am Not a Human Being II, which is set for release in December.

The Rolling Stones played their first show in five years on Thursday, blowing through an hour-long warm-up set at the Paris club La Trabendo. The intimate gig was in preparation for the band's 50th anniversary concerts in November and December. The Stones played 12 songs, according to multiple reports, including the classics "Tumbling Dice," "Midnight Rambler," "Jumpin' Jack Flash," "Miss You" and "Brown Sugar." They also tried out two new songs: "One More Shot" and the just-released single "Doom and Gloom."

Aerosmith will play a surprise show in their home town of Boston on November 5, the day before the band's new album Music From Another Dimension! is released. The secret concert will take place "around noon" in the streets of Boston and Rock WAAF is expected to reveal details of the exact location that morning.

My Chemical Romance has posted online the first two tracks from their scrapped album Conventional Weapons. The band put out "Boy Division" and "Tomorrow's Money," which were recorded in 2009 during the sessions for the band's fourth album, which they then abandoned to instead record Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys. These two songs will be followed in the coming weeks by more material. Last month, My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero posted a message on the band's site explaining: "Beginning in October we will be releasing 2 songs a month for 5 months. 10 songs in total from the Conventional Weapons sessions we did back in 2009. We hope you enjoy these time capsules, and that they may shed a little more light on how and where Danger Days came from, and maybe even where the future of MCR might be heading."

A play based on the life and music of Amy Winehouse is expected to open in Copenhagen in January 2013, according to the BBC. The show will feature music from late singer's two records - Frank and Back to Black - and will focus on "the enormous pressure a sensationalist public put on a young superstar when her problems began," according to organizers of the performance. As previously reported, Amy Winehouse At The BBC, a four-disc box set collection, will be released on November 13. The Special Edition box set includes Winehouse's earliest BBC Radio sessions, her first ever TV performances, candid interviews, rarely seen footage, unique covers and live versions of classic songs from Frank and Back To Black.

Solange Knowles will release her new album, True, on November 27 via Terrible Records. The seven-track effort includes the single "Losing You" and it features production and songwriting from Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes, Ariel Reichstadt and more.
