Police drummer Stewart Copeland has written a tribute to Cream and Blind Faith drummer Ginger Baker in Timem magazine. In part, he says, “He always described himself as a jazz musician, but I never bought that. Amid my properly obsequious interactions, I couldn’t help rattling his cage about the jazz thing. I would say, ‘Dude, get over it. You are a rock god.’”

Oysterhead-- the trio of Stewart Copeland,Trey Anastasio and Les Claypool-- along with theTrey Anastasio Band, will headline the SweetWater 420 Fest at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta from April 24th through 26th.

The David Crosby documentary Remember My Name comes out on DVD and Blu-ray today (Tuesday).

Levon Helm's boyhood home has been moved from Turkey Scratch, Arkansas to neighboring Marvell, where it’s been restored to its near original state. His daughter Amy was at the opening this past weekend.

Numerous AC/DC tribute bands will perform on flatbed trucks on Australia’s Canning Highway, the inspiration for “Highway to Hell,” as part of next year’s Bon Scott tribute festival. It was nicknamed the “Highway to Hell” due to the large number of road deaths of people on the way to a night out at Raffles, a bar in nearby Fremantle. In 1976, AC/DC shot the video for "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)" on a flatbed truck on the streets of Melbourne, Australia.
