Courtesy of Eagle Rock Entertainment/ AXS TVThe latest episode of the AXS TV series Brian Johnson's A Life on the Road features the longtime AC/DC frontman chatting with Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason while checking out Mason's impressive rare car collection.

During the show, which premieres Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, Mason recalls how he met band mate Roger Waters and reflects on Pink Floyd's early days.

Nick explains that he, Waters and founding Pink Floyd keyboardist Rick Wright all met while attending the Regent Street Polytechnic school in London.

"We were all training to be architects," he notes, adding with a laugh, "It was architecture's loss, I think, that the music took off…or not."

Mason remembers that he and Waters first crossed paths because Roger knew he had a car and wanted to borrow it.

"I'm not sure that he knew what the car was, because, actually, it was an [old] Austin 7 Chummy, with a top speed of, like, 20 mile an hour and no brakes," Nick points out. "But when he asked whether I might lend it to him, I said 'no.'"

Mason also notes that Waters approached Wright looking to bum a cigarette from him, and Rick turned down his request as well, which, he quips, "sort of set the pattern, really, for the next 50 years."

Johnson then comments that Roger was "a bit of a bum, wasn't he?"

Nick responds, "Listen, it was an important moment [meeting Waters], because if it hadn't been for that, we might not be sitting here now."

In a separate preview video, Mason explains that he had only been playing drums for a short period of time when Pink Floyd was signed to a record deal and began touring constantly.

You also can check out the track now on YouTube.

Besides appearing on The Band, "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" was released as part of a two-sided single with "Up on Cripple Creek" and became the group's highest-charting hit, reaching #25 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The song famously was covered in 1971 by Joan Baez, and her version peaked at #3 ion the tally.

As previously reported, the album The Band -- also known as "The Brown Album" -- will be reissued in multiple formats and configurations on November 15.

Among the versions of the reissue is a Super Deluxe box set featuring two CDs, two 180-gram-vinyl LPs, a Blu-ray disc, a 7-inch vinyl single and a hardbound book.

The Blu-ray contains high-res stereo and surround mixes of The Band and six unreleased bonus tracks, plus the Classic Albums: The Band making-of documentary. The seven-inch single features "Rag Mama Rag" backed with "The Unfaithful Servant," and is a reproduction of one that was released from the album.

RANKINRod Stewart is among the stars who'll be part of the Royal Variety Performance, an annual event that benefits the Royal Variety Charity.  It's been held more or less every year since 1912, and senior members of the Royal Family always attend, although it's not known if Queen Elizabeth II will be on hand for this year's event.

Of course, Stewart and the British Royal Family go way back; they knighted him two years ago, after all. The singer also took part in the 2006 edition of the show.

The Royal Variety Charity, the patron of which is the Queen, helps U.K. entertainers who need care and assistance. This year's show will be recorded November 18 at the London Palladium and air on British TV in December.

Other confirmed performers include Harry Connick Jr., Emeli Sandé, Lewis Capaldi and '60s pop legend Petula Clark.

Over the years, hundreds of stars have appeared at the Royal Variety Performance, including The Beatles in 1963, and, in recent years, Jeff Lynne's ELO, Sting, Lady Gaga, Elton John, Neil Diamond, Barry Manilow and Ozzy Osbourne.

Father of All... the album -- the follow-up to 2016's Revolution Radio -- arrives February 7. Green Day will be supporting the new record next summer on the Hella Mega tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer.

iStock/bestdesignsA host of celebrities, including well-known veteran musicians like David Byrne and U2 bassist Adam Clayton, have signed an open letter acknowledging being "hypocrites" in their efforts to raise awareness for climate change.

"Dear journalists who have called us hypocrites," begins the letter, which was published by the climate activist organization Extinction Rebellion. "You're right."

The letter continues, "We live high carbon lives and the industries that we are part of have huge carbon footprints. Like you -- and everyone else -- we are stuck in this fossil-fuel economy and without systemic change, our lifestyles will keep on causing climate and ecological harm."

To influence that systemic change, the artists who signed the letter plan to continue to use their platforms to raise awareness and encourage action.

"Climate change is happening faster and more furiously than was predicted," the letter reads. "Millions of people are suffering, leaving their homes and arriving on our borders as refugees."

It continues, "Alongside these people who are already paying the price for our fossil fueled economy, there are millions of children -- called to action by Greta Thunberg -- who are begging us, the people with power and influence, to stand up and fight for their already devastated future. We cannot ignore their call. Even if by answering them we put ourselves in your firing line."

Other musicians who've signed the letter include Brian Eno, Bob Geldof, Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera, Mel B of The Spice Girls, Radiohead's Thom Yorke, and Natalie Imbruglia.

You can read the whole letter via Rebellion.earth.

Megaforce RecordsFounding Santana and Journey singer/keyboardist Gregg Rolie has just released a video for "What About Love," the lead single from his new solo album, Sonic Ranch. The clip premiered Wednesday on Billboard.com and also can be viewed on Rolie's official YouTube channel.

The 72-year-old who has played in Ringo Starr's All Starr Band since 2012, tells ABC Audio that Starr's famous "peace and love" message was the inspiration for "What About Love."

"I came up with this thing and [the All Starr Band] jammed a little bit of it at a soundcheck, and then nothing ever happened," Rolie recalls. "Then I found the bass line when I went home, and I said, 'I'm gonna record this.' And I just went, 'I'm going to make this "What About Love," based upon [Ringo's peace and love] message.'"

The two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee also notes that the song expresses his frustration at the world's current contentious social and political climate.

"I mean, really, quite simply, how about it, you guys?" Gregg declares. "You've tried all this other stuff. Every year, somebody's doing something. It's just a little boring for the average Joe on the street, which I am."

The "What About Love" video features a series of quick-cut clips capturing Rolie working in the studio and rehearsing, as well as footage of him playing live with Neal Schon's Journey Through Time side project along with bassist Mario Mendoza and ex-Journey drummer Deen Castronovo.

"Everyone who's seen [the video] goes, 'You look younger,'" Gregg maintains. "And part of the reason was 'cause I wanted to…have it look the way I feel."

Rolie adds that Starr gave the video a thumbs-up, "He loved it. He goes, 'This is really, really good.'"

Ozzy Osbourne, KISS' Gene Simmons and Slash are among the rock stars featured in a new documentary The Rainbow, which tells the story of the legendary Sunset Strip watering hole The Rainbow Bar & Grill and the nearby Whisky a Go Go nightclub. The film will be available on demand and as a digital video starting Tuesday, October 29.

The movie also focuses on Mario Maglieri, who co-founded and co-owned The Rainbow and The Whisky until his death in 2017, as well as his son and grandson -- Mikael and Mikey -- who are carrying on the family businesses. Mario became well-known for helping many musicians get their start in the Los Angeles area.

The Rainbow also features conversations with Lita Ford, ex-Guns N' Roses drummer Matt Sorum, The Monkees' Micky Dolenz and, in one of his final interviews, Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister. The bar was famously Lemmy's favorite L.A. haunt, where a lounge was named after him after he died in 2016.

"Telling the story of The Rainbow Bar & Grill, The Whisky a Go Go and the Maglieri family in this film has been a great honor and one that truly represents the history of rock 'n' roll in America," says Matthew Perniciaro, one of the documentary's producers.

You can pre-order The Rainbow now at iTunes.
