Sammy Hagar answered fan-submitted questions this past Tuesday, September 24 as part of a live Google+ Hangout event. You can now watch the question-and-answer session below.

Hagar‘s first-ever rock collaborations album, “Sammy Hagar And Friends”, is likely to sell between 13,000 and 15,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on September 24 via Frontiers

Hagar enlisted three legendary musicians — Toby Keith, Mickey Hart and Taj Mahal — to round out the final three tracks on “Sammy Hagar And Friends”. The effort was preceded by the CD’s first single and video for the high-voltage track “Knockdown Dragout” featuring Kid Rock, Joe Satriani and Denny Carmassi.

In addition to the 10-track standard edition album, fans also have an opportunity to purchase a deluxe edition of “Sammy Hagar And Friends”, packaged in a high-gloss digipak. The deluxe CD/DVD package includes an exclusive bonus audio track, “Space Station #5”, recorded live at the Ronnie Montrose Tribute Concert held on April 29, 2012 in San Francisco, as well as the “making-of” album documentary which includes bonus video of the first single “Knockdown Dragout”, and more.

“Sammy Hagar And Friends” track listing:

01. Winding Down (with Taj Mahal)
02. Not Going Down (with Bill Church & Denny Carmassi)
03. Personal Jesus (with Neal Schon, Michael Anthony & Chad Smith)
04. Father Sun (with Denny Carmassi & Aaron Hagar)
05. Knockdown Dragout (with Kid Rock, Joe Satriani, Denny Carmassi)
06. Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man (with David Lauser, Mona Gnader & Vic Johnson)
07. Bad On Fords and Chevrolets (with Ronnie Dunn, David Lauser, Mona Gnader & Vic Johnson)

10. Going Down (with Neal Schon, Michael Anthony & Chad Smith)
11. Space Station #5 (with Denny Carmassi, Bill Church, Joe Satriani) (Live from Ronnie Montrose Tribute * Exclusively available on Deluxe Edition CD)

From new originals like “Knockdown Dragout” with Kid Rock, “Bad On Fords And Chevrolets” with Ronnie Dunn, “All We Need Is An Island” with Nancy Wilson, “Going Down” with Neal Schon, Michael Anthony and Chad Smith, and “Father Sun”, a duet with his son Aaron Hagar — to reimagined covers of classics like BOB SEGER‘s “Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man” and DEPECHE MODE‘s “Personal Jesus”Hagar has masterfully assembled an album that delves into rock, country, blues and pop. “Sammy Hagar And Friends” is Hagar‘s first solo album since 2008.

Duff McKagan (GUNS N’ ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER, LOADED) will deliver the CBGB 2013 music festival keynote at the CBGB Music & Film Festival Conference, which will be held October 8-13 at Lower Manhattan’s Landmark Sunshine Theater with performances at venues throughout New York City and Brooklyn.

As an integral part of some of the most successful rock bands in history — GUNS N’ ROSES and VELVET REVOLVERMcKagan will deliver the CBGB 2013 music festival keynote. Leading the charge of rock music since the ’80s, McKagan continues to be a potent and venerable noisemaker in the industry. A multi-faceted artist today, when McKagan isn’t shredding on the stage, he effortlessly morphs into a journalist (SeattleWeekly.com, Playboy.com, ESPN.com), an actor (“Dead Pool”, “Sliders”), or a producer (biographical documentary “It’s So Easy (And Other Lies)”). Outside of the arts, he founded Meridian Rock, a wealth management firm aimed at musicians to help educate them about their finances. His versatility and his impact are the epitome of what it means to be an artist today.

CBGB has released an interactive mobile app for iOS and Android smartphones for free download, providing real-time updates on the music showcases, film screenings, and daytime conference schedules. The app lets users set up their own “favorites” schedule for the festival, connect with other fans, and explore previews of the full offering of the CBGB Festival. The CBGB app is available for free on the Apple App store, Google Play, or via direct download.

There are a number of ways to participate in the CBGB Festival. There are a limited number of tickets available to attend the red carpet premier of “CBGB The Movie” at the Landmark Theater on Tuesday, October 8. Tickets and badges for the “CBGB The Movie” red carpet premier experience and three additional different tiers of festival access are available on the CBGB web site. The CBGB VIP Platinum Badge is available through Ticketmaster.

An abbreviation for “Country, BlueGrass, and Blues”, CBGB holds a very important place in rock ‘n’ roll history when it began its auspicious origin as a music club on The Bowery in New York City’s East Village. Founded by the late Hilly Kristal in 1973, CBGB became a hotbed for American punk and new music with bands like RAMONES, B-52S, TALKING HEADS, TELEVISION, BLONDIE, THE PATTI SMITH GROUP and THE DEAD BOYS.

SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor performed an acoustic cover version of THE CLASH‘s “London Calling” for Google Play‘s “Uncovered Sessions”. You can watch video footage of his performance below.

Taylor‘s recently published book, “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven (Or, How I Made Peace With The Paranormal And Stigmatized Zealots And Cynics In The Process)”, chronicles Taylor‘s experiences with the paranormal and his quest to find an explanation for such incidents. Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio that he decided to seek out answers after too many strange things happened to him and around him. “It’s amazing what people will come up with to rationalize something that can’t be rationalized,” he said. “Look, if something has a definite, real explanation, I’m the first to go, ‘Oh, OK, that makes sense.’ But some things cannot be explained, like a thermos being thrown behind me when I’m the only one awake in the house at seven in the morning. The list goes on and on for me, you know, so it’s like, it’s time for me to start kind of figuring things out for myself.”

Taylor said he sought out insight from so-called “ghost hunters,” skeptics and religious leaders while working on the book.

“A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven” landed at No. 23 last month on the New York Times “Hardcover Non-fiction” best sellers list, three positions higher than his first memoir, 2011’s “Seven Deadly Sins”.

While STONE SOUR plans to take the rest of the year off, Taylor will perform with SLIPKNOT on October 19 in Brazil. The band will then begin putting music together for its long-awaited fifth album in early 2014.

“House Of Gold & Bones – Part 2”, the second part of STONE SOUR‘s two-album series, “House of Gold & Bones”, sold 35,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 10 on The Billboard 200 chart. The record arrived in stores on April 9 via Roadrunner.

The “House Of Gold & Bones” albums were recorded at Sound Farm Studios just outside of the band’s native Des Moines, Iowa with producer David Bottrill (TOOL, MUSE) at the helm.

“Spent the last 14 hrs tracking drums with Tim “ernie” Bower. Its an in joke, (google bennie Hill + ernie), we have alot of “in” jokes in this band, its great to finally be in a band where everyone wants the same result, team players….who would have thought!!! Lets just say, its a refreshing change from my previous position. Go figure.

“Anyway, All 12 tracks now done on drums, myself and Kev in full swing finishing guitars and keys, Tony in later this week to do the last of the bass and Dave is in lunch time to keep working on vocals. Artwork and photos to go over in the meantime, plus sorting travel and shows for sept and tour in November. I also have the label wanting listening copies and I’m due to fly to US in 3 weeks straight after german festival to start work producing the next Accept record. I don’t think I’ve ever been busier…..did I mention having to do a studio report for metal hammer everyday also……”

Hell

Oi oi, it’s another update on that new Hell album from our mate Andy Sneap. What’s happening, Andy?

“Ladies and Gentleman, Mr Tony Speakman! Speak being the operative word as you can never shut this guy up once he gets talking. So I stopped him talking and made him play today. Tony, besides being one of the hottest looking bass players on today’s metal scene is actually one of the best bass players I’ve recorded Known for his bad taste in leather jackets, he’s a keen fisherman and real ale expert. Bass is now recorded to seven songs and we are moving onto more vocals tomorrow morning. Did I mention the Oxo shepherds pie adverts? (Google them!)”
