BMG has signed a worldwide recording agreement with Nickelback. Currently in the studio, the band are working on material for their new full-length album to be released via BMG and according to a release, "are planning a major announcement slated for February 1." BMG U.S. President, Repertoire and Marketing, Zach Katz said, "We are thrilled to welcome the legendary Nickelback to BMG.

Butch Trucks, founding drummer of the Allman Brothers Band, passed away last night in West Palm Beach, FL. A rep for Trucks said in a statement, "The Trucks and Allman Brothers Band families request all of Butch's friends and fans to please respect our privacy at this time of sadness for our loss. Butch will play on in our hearts forever." Born Claude Hudson Trucks, the musician met Gregg and Duane Allman in the mid-60s, later forming the Allman Brothers Band. Trucks' nephew Derek joined the group when they reunited in 1999 and became an acclaimed guitarist in his own right. Trucks was 69 years old.
