This is his second music video for the album. The earlier video for the song “The Last Refugee” also starred the same leading lady as his current one, world-renowned dance Azzura.
Check it all out in the video below:

Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles recently headlined the iconic Classic West Festival at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
Glenn Frey’s son Deacon Frey is filling his father’s shoes quite well proving that talent really does run in the family. Fleetwood Mac is on the bill too, so if that doesn’t get you excited I don’t know what will.
If you know anything about either band than you’ll know the connection and long history, so it goes without saying that this festival is a match made in heaven, and in this performance you’ll see here, Stevie Nicks brings it all full circle.

“Billboard” has put out their annual ‘Music Moneymakers’ list, which ranks the 50 artists who raked in the most money last year. The estimates include stuff like music sales, streaming, ringtones, publishing royalties, and touring, which is where the big money comes from these days.
They only count U.S. sales and touring, so anyone who spent a lot of last year touring abroad won’t have that income added. Merchandise sales and sponsorships weren’t included either, because there wasn’t enough information available to make it consistent across the board.
Beyonce is a runaway #1, with an estimated net income of $62.1 million, and no [More]

Classic rock icon, and Gainesville’s 2nd favorite son (after Tim Tebow of course!) Tom Petty is busy touring the world with the Heartbreakers on their 40th anniversary tour. One of their recent stops happened across the pond in London, and featured a long-time friend – Stevie Nicks.
With Stevie stopping by, obviously the two needed to recant their 1981 smash hit “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around”
And while the performance got some pretty high accolades from publications like the BBC, it wasn’t the first time that the duo have hit the stage together. They also shared a stage in February at the MusiCares [More]

A while back we told you Eddie Money was being sued by his former drummer for wrongful termination, among other allegations – including harassment, and misconduct.
Well, round one has ended in the suit, and Eddie emerged as the loser.
Money’s former drummer Glenn Symmonds had his lawyers in California court to battle an attempt by Eddie’s team dismiss some of the charges, but the judge was not having it!
The 80’s icon had his team of lawyers putting in billable hours and vows to get his money’s worth – they claim they’ll be back to appeal the pre-trial motion.
They also had some [More]

Nirvana shot a music video at a Radio Shack in Aberdeen, Washington back in 1988. Yesterday, 17 minutes of footage from it surfaced online.
The store wasn’t open at the time, they apparently got permission to shoot there after hours.
The video is from very early on in the band’s history. They were calling themselves ‘Ted Ed Fred,’ so they weren’t even Nirvana yet. Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic aren’t playing live, in fact their guitars aren’t even plugged in. They were just synching with a previously recorded demo.
Their drummer at the time was Dale Crover, from The Melvins. He WAS [More]

Metal music website Loudwire.com has put together a list of the 10 Greatest Metal Riffs of the 1970s…but they cheated!
Instead of pouring through every riff and selecting a #1 that stands out over the rest, they chose “Every BLACK SABBATH Riff”.
Even though we agree with their sentiment, it still feels like a cheap way to cap off their list.
Here’s how the entire list plays out:
Every Black Sabbath Riff
“School’s Out”, Alice Cooper
“Smoke on the Water”, Deep Purple
“Kashmir”, Led Zeppelin
“Cat Scratch Fever”, Ted Nugent
“Runnin’ with the Devil”, Van Halen
“Cities on Flame”, Blue Oyster Cult
“Victim of Changes”, Judas Priest
“Working Man”, Rush

It was several weeks ago that Michael Anthony was asked about whether he’d support a Van Halen reunion with himself, his best bud Sammy Hagar, and the iconic other front man in the band David Lee Roth. When Anthony said a resounding “Yes”, it began to spin the rumor mills out of control
Now the former VH bassist is expanding on what he really would like to see:
“You obviously see all of these other bands doing it these days, and also for Van Halen’s fans. Maybe some kind of proper closure or something. I’m not sure. Everybody in the band is [More]

Bill Ward didn’t get the chance to tour with Black Sabbath on their final worldwide jaunt, but that hasn’t stopped him from putting some final closure on that point in his life.
On June 28th the Sabbath co-founder will launch an online store over at Reverb.com where he’s selling more than 200 pieces of authentic gear used in the studio and on tour.
“Whoever gets this gear will get good karma. I really hope the new owners will be able to feel the energy of it. Of course, I’m going to miss all of the gear – there’s some really [More]

Netflix has been on a tear recently with their exclusively created content. They’ve wooed pretty big names in the world of acting to participate in some of these projects, and now they’ve also recruited one of the biggest names in music as well.
On June 30th, the streaming network will release a new show aptly named “Gypsy”. As showrunner Lisa Rubin told EW, she heard Fleetwood Mac’s version of “Gypsy” for the first time while she was outlining a project at a coffee shop, and was so struck by the song that it “became part of the fabric” of [More]
