Sammy Hagar and The Circle kicked off their new tour at the Grand Sierre Resort in Reno this past weekend. The band performed songs from their upcoming album Space Between, including "Trust Fund Baby," "Can’t Hang," "Devil Came to Philly," "Full Circle Jam (Chump Change)" and "Affirmation." They also performed several Van Halen songs. They only performed one Led Zeppelin song, "Rock and Roll."

Last year, Hagar said that Space Between will more than likely be his last album. He explained, "Musically, it will hold up. Jason Bonham is the greatest rock drummer in the world and plays just like his dad. So, on this record, we’ve got that Led Zeppelin sound and feel. … Anthony is as good a rock bass player as anyone ever in the history of rock. And Vic, when he plays on this record, he’s bringing it all there."

Space Between is due out on May 10th. The tour runs until June 8th.

The Beautiful Ones, an unfinished memoir about the life of Prince, is due out in October. Random House released a statement via the AP, saying, "The Beautiful Ones is the deeply personal account of how Prince Rogers Nelson became the Prince we know: the real-time story of a kid absorbing the world around him and creating a persona, an artistic vision, and a life, before the hits and the fame that would come to define him."

Shortly before his death in April 2016, Prince announced that he was working on the memoir. Literary Agent Esther Newberg said that in addition to more than 50 handwritten pages, The Beautiful Ones will feature behind-the-scenes photos, scrapbooks and handwritten lyric sheets provided by Princes' estate. The book will also include the original treatment for his iconic song "Purple Rain"

New Yorker writer Dan Piepenbring will pen the introduction.

The Beautful Ones is due out on October 29th.

Nowhere Boy, the 2009 biopic about John Lennon's teenage years is now being turned into a musical. Nowhere Boy is centered around the relationship between Lennon, his mother Julia and her sister Mimi Smith, who raised Lennon as a child, as he formed the Quarrymen, which eventually turned into The Beatles.

The musical will be co-producer by Brian and Dayna Lee of AF Creative Media and Robyn Goodman and Josh Fiedler of Aged in Wood. The producers will be looking for a scriptwriter in the near future. They'd like to debut the musical within the next few years.

Brian said, "We’ve just secured the rights of the film. As a team we’ll be traveling to London this summer, trying to figure out the right person to bring this narrative to life."

The producers will start looking for someone to write the script, with the hopes of premiering the production in the U.K. at some point within the next few years. Although Yoko Ono has been told about the musical, she hasn't authorized it.

Former Nirvana manager Danny Goldberg was asked at a signing session in Los Angeles for his new book, Serving The Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain, for his thoughts on the conspiracy theory that Courtney Love had her husband, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, murdered and made to look like a suicide.

Goldberg replied, "I met Tom Grant once, and once was enough. Grant was a detective who has been spinning all these years the conspiracy theory . . . he gave me his reasons on why he thought this was very suspicious and I said to him, 'Don't you think the Seattle Police Department would investigate this? It's kind of front-page news and they're under a lot of scrutiny.'

Goldberg continued, "He said: 'Oh, I know how police departments can be corrupted.' So at that point, I stopped paying attention to him because that was to me, absurd, the implication that Courtney was somehow going to waltz into a Seattle police station and corrupt them. I don't think they would even let her into a police station (laughs). Especially in those days."

The former music business executive added, "I just feel that was enough for me and combined with having seen (him) the week before, knowing the condition he was in, and I know (Nirvana bassist) Krist Novoselic shares this view. It's just my unalterable opinion."

We asked Cobain biographer Charles R. Cross a while back why he thought the conspiracy theories lingered on: "I think the main reason people embrace the conspiracy theory is simply that it's very painful to imagine that Kurt, someone they loved or maybe identified with, that he betrayed them in some degree by taking his own life. You know, the bottom line is there's absolutely no evidence to suggest that Kurt's death was anything other than suicide, and it's almost absurd that the topic continues to come up."

Kurt Cobain was found dead on April 8th, 1994 at his home in Seattle, three days after the singer and guitarist took his own life with a shotgun. He was 27 years old.
