Chris Jackson/Getty Images for the Invictus Games FoundationOver the last day or so, Bruce Springsteen has posted two mysterious, uncaptioned photos on his social media sites, fueling speculation that The Boss is about to announce plans for a new project.

The first photo, which was posted on Monday, is a hazy image of a Joshua tree with the sun shining down above it. The second pic, which was uploaded today, appears to be a composite shot combining an image of multiple Joshua trees in a desert landscape with a close-up of one of the tree's leaves.

As previously reported, Springsteen announced in December that he wouldn't be touring with the E Street Band in 2019 and would instead be focusing on "various recording projects." One project he's known to be working on is a solo album, which he revealed in an October 2017 interview with Variety has been "influenced by Southern California pop music of the '70s."

In other news, Springsteen and his wife, E Street Band backing singer Patti Scialfa, have cameo roles in a new film called Broken Poet that stars and was co-written by veteran New York singer/songwriter Elliott Murphy. The movie focuses on a woman's search for a fictional singer/songwriter named Jake Lion, who may or may not be dead.

In a new trailer for the film, the lead female character is seen asking Bruce, portraying himself, whether he ever played any music with Jake.

"Not too much," says Springsteen. "Jake let me open for him. I opened for him a few times."

Springsteen and Murphy actually have collaborated in the past, with Bruce lending vocals to Elliott's 1995 album, Selling the Gold.

Broken Poet was directed by Emilio J. Ruiz. No word yet on a release date.

KISS singer/guitarist Paul Stanley is featured on the latest episode of AXS TV's The Big Interview, which premieres Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. Stanley opens up to host Dan Rather about his long partnership with band mate Gene Simmons, and what motivated them to seek rock stardom in the first place.

In a preview clip posted on AXS.tv, Stanley discusses why his professional relationship with Simmons has endured, despite differences in their personalities.

"A great partnership is based on understanding its limitations," Paul notes. "So, does [Gene] do things that I question? Does he say things that I don't want to align myself with? Does he behave in certain ways? Yeah, but that's not here or there. The core of what we have is a work ethic, and a bond that's built on time."

Stanley adds, "When you meet someone, there may be potential, but nothing comes of it without experience, and seeing how each one of you respond to crises, to victories, to defeats. And that's what Gene and I have been through together."

Stanley also admits that he wasn't initially impressed by Simmons when he was first introduced to him by a mutual musician friend, who wanted to start a band with them.

"I said [to my friend], 'Well, you can play with [Simmons] or you can play with me, but you're not gonna play with us,'" recalls Paul. "Well, here we are 50-some-odd years later and I'm very fortunate to have been on that path with [Gene]."

Stanley also chats with Rather about his passion for painting, KISS' preparations for their current End of the Road farewell tour, and how he was motivated to succeed as a rock musician partly out of insecurity over being born with a deformed ear.

ABC/Randy HolmesThis week marks the 20th anniversary of Metallica recording their legendary S&M concerts. The shows were a collaboration between the metal icons and the San Francisco Symphony, which was later released as a live album and concert film. To mark the occasion, drummer Lars Ulrich shared his memories of the shows in an Instagram post.

"We threw ourselves deep into unknown creative territories and walked away with most incredible of experiences and the coolest album and concert film," Ulrich wrote, alongside a photo of himself and the symphony's famed conductor, Michael Kamen.

Kamen, who worked on the scores for movies including Lethal Weapon and Die Hard and collaborated with Pink Floyd on The Wall, was the one who originally reached out to Metallica about the project.

"He thought that we would be an obvious choice for a pairing like this and we said yes in [two] nano seconds flat and followed Michael's lead for the next few years, as we went on an incredible adventure together," Ulrich wrote.

In 2003, four years after S&M was recorded, Kamen died at age 55.

"His love of life and his appetite for shaking up conventions will always be something I'll take with me and cherish," Ulrich wrote of Kamen.

To further celebrate the 20th anniversary of S&M, Metallica will reunite with the San Francisco Symphony for two more shows, scheduled for September 6 and 8 at the Chase Center, the new home of the Golden State Warriors.

Daniel Knighton/Getty ImagesDoors guitarist Robby Krieger has written and recorded a new song called "Music Speaks Louder Than Words," which will appear in an upcoming documentary about Prince titled Mr. Nelson: On the North Side. The film will focus on the late music legend's early life growing up on the north side of Minneapolis.

According to a post on his official Facebook page, Krieger recorded the tune at his Horse Latitudes studio in the Los Angeles area, with Grammy-winning soul/R&B singer Macy Gray contributing lead vocals.

"Prince was an amazing artist, but he was also such an underrated guitarist," says Robby.

Mr. Nelson: On the North Side will feature a variety of well-known artists sharing their recollections of Prince and discussing their appreciation of his artistry.

According to IMDb.com, the documentary includes appearances by Krieger, Gray, ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, Randy Bachman, Chaka Khan, Dennis Quaid and ex-Chicago drummer Danny Seraphine.

The 90-minute flick was directed by Kirk Fera, and is expected to premiere later this year.

In other news, Krieger has added a September 14 concert at the Bergen Performing Arts Center in Englewood, New Jersey, to his 2019 tour schedule. The show also will feature Mountain frontman Leslie West. Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 26, at 11 a.m. ET.

John Lennon in 1961 (Evening Standard/Getty Images)Nowhere Boy, the 2009 John Lennon biopic focusing on the legendary Beatle's volatile teenage years, may be headed to the stage.

Deadline reports that the AF Media Creative and Aged in Wood production companies have acquired the rights to turn the film into a musical.

As in the movie, the stage production is expected to focus on Lennon's pre-Beatles band The Quarrymen and his relationship with his Aunt Mimi and his mother, Julia, who abandoned her son when he was a child, but later came back into his life, only to be killed by a car.

The Nowhere Boy film starred Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Lennon and Kristen Scott Thomas as Mimi.

AF Creative Media's Brian and Dayna Lee say the musical, which is in the early stages of development, will incorporate songs by African-American artists who inspired Lennon and the Liverpool, U.K., music scene at that time.

Like the film, the stage production will feature classic rock 'n' roll tunes of the late 1950s, but may not include any original Lennon compositions.

Brian Lee says the producers are hoping the musical will open in the U.K. sometime "in the next few years."

"We've just secured the rights of the film," he says, "and 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 Lees haven't discussed the project with Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono.

Money can't buy you love, but it can score you some cool Beatles memorabilia.

An antique piano once owned by John Lennon and used by the famed Beatle to write several songs featured on the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album, was purchased at an auction Saturday for $718,000 by Jim Irsay, owner of the National Football League's Indianapolis Colts, the Indianapolis Star reports.

"I'm elated to now be the steward of John's 'Sgt. Pepper' upright piano," Irsay, a noted Beatles fanatic and rock-memorabilia collector, wrote Saturday in a post on his Twitter. "It's a responsibility I take seriously, with future generations in mind."

According to the Gotta Have Rock and Roll auction site, the piano was made by the John Broadwood and Sons company and dates back to about 1872. Lennon purchased the instrument, which is an ornately painted upright model, in or around 1966 and used it as his Kenwood and Tittenhurst Park residences in the U.K.

Lennon eventually gave the instrument to a friend, but first had a plaque affixed to it that reads, "On this piano was written: A Day in the Life, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, Good Morning, Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite and many others. John Lennon. 1971."

The piano was estimated to fetch between $800,000 and $1.2 million. Following the auction, the owner of Gotta Have Rock and Roll posted a Facebook message congratulating Irsay "for winning this incredible piece!"

Previous rock collectibles Irsay has purchased include a 1963 drum kit that Ringo Starr used to record some of The Beatles' biggest early hits, Jerry Garcia's famous "Tiger" guitar, and the Fender Stratocaster that Bob Dylan played at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival.

Look for Lynyrd Skynyrd to stay on the road into next year.  In a new interview with USA Today, frontman Johnny Van Zant discusses the legendary Southern rock band's plans to retire from the road and what else the group is hoping to accomplish before calling it quits.

Lynyrd Skynyrd launched their Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour last year.  Trek's currently mapped out through a September 28 concert in Orange Beach, Alabama.  

Van Zant tells the newspaper that Skynyrd decided to mount the farewell tour because guitarist Gary Rossington, the band's last surviving original member, has a bad heart and the group "wanted to let people know that, 'Hey, our time is coming to an end.'" He adds, "We wanted to do it right and I think so far we have."

As for how long the trek might last, Johnny, who joined Skynyrd in 1987, says, "[W]e're going to keep busy probably for another year and then see what happens next year, as long as Gary's health is OK."

Regarding Rossington's current health status, Van Zant reports, "He's doing really good right now. He had a pacemaker put in a while back."

Johnny also reveals that Lynyrd Skynyrd is preparing to record a new album "and are going into the studio pretty soon to cut a few things."  Van Zant says he isn't sure when the new album will be ready for release, noting that it "depends on Gary's health."

According to Johnny, Rossington is in good health now and he "wants to go in and start recording a few tracks here and there." He adds that Skynyrd might release the songs they complete "track by track, and then after we get it all done, put it together as a CD."

Here are all of Lynyrd Skynyrd's confirmed upcoming North American shows:

ABC/Randy HolmesWith Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan back together in Guns N' Roses, many are hoping for new music from the reunited rock icons. Speaking to Consequence of Sound, Slash says Guns will be working on a new album after their fall tour.

"There’s a handful of gigs that are happening at the very end of September and through October," the guitarist explains. "And then it's really just focusing on getting a new record done."

As for when we'll get to hear that new material, that's still unknown. However, Slash is hopeful that a new Guns record will arrive before his other band, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators, releases their next album, the follow-up to 2018's Living the Dream.

"I mean, that's one of those things where it remains to be seen, but I would hope so," Slash says. "But we'll see what happens."

GNR hasn't released an album since 2008's Chinese Democracy, which, of course, featured Axl as the lone member from the band's original lineup. The last Guns record to feature Slash and Duff was the 1993 covers collection "The Spaghetti Incident?"

ABC/Craig SjodinIn a super-meta full-circle moment, Adam Lambert will help mentor this season's American Idol contestants when they tackle the music of Queen later this month, Billboard reports.

Adam, of course, auditioned for American Idol back on season 8 with Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody."  Then, during that season's star-studded finale, he actually got to sing with the legendary British rock band.  Now, he's Queen's lead singer -- and has been since 2011 -- and he even has a cameo in their Oscar-winning biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

During the April 28 episode, the remaining eight finalists will sing songs from Queen's catalog.  Adam will then return to the show to perform on the season finale, airing May 19 on ABC.

Meanwhile, Queen and Adam will be touring North America this summer, starting July 10 in Vancouver, Canada, and wrapping things up August 23 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Credit: Pamela LittkyAlice in Chains has debuted the fifth installment of Black Antenna, the sci-fi companion film to the grunge band's Grammy-nominated album, Rainier Fog.

The film follows Alpha and Beta, two aliens disguised as humans, who are trying to find a way to contact their home world. They're pursued by a U.S. immigration officer named Nil, who also has alien origins.

In this new chapter, which is accompanied by the Rainier Fog song "Drone," Alpha continues to build an antenna to contact their people, while Beta interacts with a neighbor in the apartment building in which they're staying. Meanwhile, Nil attends a party that answers the question "What would Eyes Wide Shut be like if it had more tentacles?"

You can watch the "Drone" episode, which is very NSFW, now on YouTube.

Previous Black Antenna episodes include "Red Giant," "The One You Know," "Rainier Fog" and "Fly." The film will eventually consist of 10 parts.

Alice in Chains' current North American tour continues Friday in Minneapolis. They'll team up with Korn for a co-headlining tour starting in July.

Kevin Mazur/Getty ImagesIn a recent radio interview, Jason Bonham claimed that when he was 16 years old, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page introduced him to cocaine, but now the drummer -- whose late father John Bonham was one of Zeppelin's founding members -- is backpedaling, saying that story is a whole lotta bull.

On his official website, Jason writes, in a statement obviously prompted by threats of legal action, "On or about 9 April 2019 I, Jason Bonham, gave an interview on radio…[during which] I made certain untrue and derogatory statements concerning Mr. James Page (aka Jimmy Page) of the legendary band Led Zeppelin. I unconditionally retract all derogatory and defamatory comments relating to Mr. J Page that I made in that interview."

He adds, "In particular it is wholly untrue that Mr. J Page offered me any illegal substances either when I was a minor or at all. I apologize to Mr. Page, unreservedly, for making these unfounded and untrue comments about him."

He continues, "Out of my long held respect for Mr. Page I will make no further comments on the Interview and I agree to make no further comments which Mr. Page might view as disparaging, either now or in the future."

Over the years Jason has played drums with Zeppelin at three events, including the famous 2007 reunion show at the O2 Arena in London. Bonham currently is playing with Sammy Hagar's band The Circle, which launches a tour tonight in Reno, Nevada.

His own group, Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Evening, will be the support act for Peter Frampton's farewell trek starting in late June.

Dave J Hogan/Dave J Hogan/Getty ImagesOn Thursday night in New York City, Mick Jagger attended his first public event since undergoing heart surgery earlier this month: the U.S. premiere of his girlfriend Melanie Hamrick's new ballet, Porte Rouge.

Page Six reports that the Rolling Stones singer quietly slipped into a side entrance to catch the performance, which was held at New York's Lincoln Center as part of the Youth America Grand Prix dance charity's 20th anniversary gala.

TMZ posted a video showing Jagger entering the venue. In the clip, a reporter asks Mick how he's feeling, to which the rock legend replies, "Good."

An insider source told Page Six that Jagger says he's "well and hale." The source also noted that Mick was excited to attend the premiere of the performance, which he orchestrated, so he could "congratulate the performers right after."

The ballet is set to the music of The Rolling Stones.

As previously reported, The Rolling Stones postponed their planned No Filter tour of North America after it was discovered that Jagger needed a heart valve replaced. The trek was to have started on April 20 in Miami Gardens, Florida. No word yet on when the tour will be rescheduled.

Concord RecordsSantana has premiered an official video for a new song titled "Breaking Down the Door," which will appear on the band's upcoming studio album Africa Speaks.

The danceable tune, sung by Spanish singer Buika [pr: BWEE-kah], is infused with Latin horns and African percussion, and features the fiery guitar work by Carlos Santana. The upbeat sound of the tune distracts from the dark lyrics, which tell the story of a woman who is physically abused and then killed by her husband.

The video, which you can watch at Santana's official YouTube channel, features scenes of young people dancing at a bar, including a couple who seem to represent the main characters in the song. Interspersed throughout the clip is footage of Carlos playing guitar and Buika singing in front of a background of flowers and other colorful images.

"Breaking Down the Door" is available now as a digital single and via streaming services. People who pre-order Africa Speaks will receive free downloads of that song and the previously released track "Los Invisibles."

Africa Speaks will be released on June 7. The 11-track collection was produced by Rick Rubin, and came together over a prolific 10-day period at Rubin's Shangri La Studios in Malibu, California. Buika, who won the 2008 Latin Grammy for Album of the Year, sings on all of the songs.

The group -- which also includes Spandau Ballet guitarist Gary Kemp, longtime Pink Floyd and David Gilmour touring bassist Guy Pratt, guitarist Lee Harris and keyboardist Dom Beken -- feature songs from Floyd's pre-Dark Side of the Moon days. Waters took the stage to sing lead and play gong on his song “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun” from the 1968 album A Saucerful of Secrets.

The performance, caught on video by an audience member, marked a rare reunion of original Pink Floyd members.

Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets wraps up its North American tour with a show in Washington, D.C. on Monday.
