Slipknot’s Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan mourns death of daughter, 22, with a ‘broken heart’

Westlake Legal Group Shawn-Craham-Getty Slipknot’s Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan mourns death of daughter, 22, with a ‘broken heart’ Stephen Sorace fox-news/entertainment/music fox-news/entertainment/genres/rock fox-news/entertainment/events/departed fox news fnc/entertainment fnc b6090240-1834-5c49-85d4-969dd6db347f article

Slipknot founding member Shawn Crahan announced Sunday that his 22-year-old daughter has died.

Crahan, known by his stage name “Clown” or #6, shared the news on social media, just days after the Iowa heavy metal band revealed details of its upcoming album and performed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

ASHLEY MASSARO’S DAUGHTER SHARES HEARTBREAKING POST AFTER WWE SUPERSTAR’S DEATH: ‘PLEASE GOD THIS CAN’T BE IT’

“It is with a broken heart, and from a place of the deepest pain, that I have to inform all of you that my youngest daughter, Gabrielle, passed away yesterday — Saturday May 18th, 2019,” the 49-year-old percussionist wrote on the heavy metal band’s social media accounts.

Crahan wrote that funeral arrangements were being made and asked that his family’s privacy be respected during this time.

A cause of death for the 22-year-old wasn’t immediately clear.

Crahan and his wife Chantel also share daughter Alexandria, and sons Gage and Simon.

“Today is the hardest day ever, I’m confused, I’m angry, I’m sad and I’m just sad just really sad,” Simon posted on Instagram. “Gabri I miss you so much I miss you like no other we were best friends we had a good bond and now your (sic) not here anymore. I love you Gabri and I know you’ll know that forever.”

Alexandria also mourned for his sister on social media, writing, in part: “Please put good energy out for my parents and my brothers. This loss leaves the biggest hole and our lives will never be the same. 22 is too young to die.”

The band’s singer, Corey Taylor, offered condolences to his “brother.”

“My heart has broken for my brother,” Taylor wrote on Twitter. “Please keep the Crahan family in your thoughts and love. She will be missed.”

Crahan is the only founding member to remain with the band, which was formed in Des Moines in 1995. The band’s founding bassist, Paul Gray, died of a drug overdose in 2010.

Tom Petty’s daughters file suit as estate battle continues

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_5596665458001_5596660394001-vs Tom Petty's daughters file suit as estate battle continues Variety Gene Maddaus fox-news/entertainment/music fox-news/entertainment/genres/rock fox-news/entertainment/events/in-court fox-news/entertainment/events/departed fnc/entertainment fnc article 298a1d1f-be60-5187-aaca-f4cf43f55a64

Tom Petty’s daughters filed suit against his widow on Wednesday, as a struggle continues for control of the late singer-songwriter’s catalog.

WHEN A MUSIC LEGEND DIES, HOW DOES AUTOMATED RADIO RESPOND?

Adria Petty and Annakim Violette allege that their father’s wife, Dana York Petty, has deprived them of their rightful role in determining how Petty’s works are released. The suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, seeks at least $5 million in damages.

Petty died in October 2017 of an accidental drug overdose, leaving his widow as the trustee of his trust. The terms of the trust entitle the daughters to “equal participation” in decisions about how Petty’s catalog is exploited. The daughters have interpreted that to mean that they get two votes out of three, giving them majority control.

IT’S A HEARTBREAKER: TOM PETTY’S BANDMATES, DAUGHTER SPEAK ON LATE ROCK LEGEND

Dana Petty filed a petition in probate court in April, seeking to put Petty’s catalog in the hands of a professional manager. She argued that Adria Petty had been erratic and abusive, and had made it difficult to conduct business in an orderly way. Adria Petty filed a separate probate petition in an effort to claim control of the estate.

The new lawsuit, filed by attorney Alex Weingarten, accuses Dana Petty of usurping the estate’s assets at the daughters’ expense.

Adam Streisand, Dana Petty’s attorney, issued a statement calling the suit “destructive nonsense.”

TOM PETTY’S WIDOW BATTLES DAUGHTER FOR CONTROL OF ESTATE

“This misguided and meritless lawsuit sadly demonstrates exactly why Tom Petty designated his wife to be the sole trustee with authority to manage his estate,” he said. “Dana will not allow destructive nonsense like this to distract her from protecting her husband’s legacy.”

Since Tom Petty’s death, two compilations have been released, “An American Treasure” and “The Best of Everything” — both of which involved a good deal of conflict between Petty’s widow and daughters, over content, release dates, credits and liner notes. In her probate petition, Dana Petty said Adria had interfered with plans to release a third album, “Wildflowers — All the Rest,” which would include outtakes from the original album and coincide with the original’s 25th anniversary.

Jerry Lee Lewis’ lawsuit against his daughter dismissed by federal judge

Westlake Legal Group jerry-lee-lewis-lawsuit-against-his-daughter-dismissed-by-federal-judge Jerry Lee Lewis’ lawsuit against his daughter dismissed by federal judge fox-news/entertainment/music fox-news/entertainment/genres/rock fox-news/entertainment/events/in-court fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article Ann Schmidt 7bca9bb0-3979-5afc-b307-c1e2902d801c

A lawsuit alleging rock ‘n’ roll pioneer Jerry Lee Lewis’ daughter stole from him was dismissed by a federal judge last Thursday.

U.S. District Judge Neal Biggers ruled that most claims from the lawsuit were barred by the statute of limitations. He allowed only claims by Lewis’ son and current wife that they were defamed by online comments from the daughter’s husband.

Lewis sued his daughter Phoebe Lewis-Loftin and son-in-law Zeke Loftin in 2017.

According to court documents the “Great Balls of Fire” singer claimed Phoebe took advantage of him while she managed her father’s career from 2000 to 2012 and conspired to spend his fortune with her husband Loftin, TMZ reported at the time.

JERRY LEE LEWIS IS ‘HEADING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION’ AFTER SUFFERING FROM MINOR STROKE

The lawsuit is another fracture in the often-difficult personal life of the 83-year-old pianist and singer known as “The Killer.” The Louisiana native and survivor from the dawn of rock now lives in Nesbit, Miss.

In February, the 83-year-old music legend suffered a minor stroke and had to cancel upcoming performances.

After Lewis’ stroke, his rep Zach Farnum said Lewis was expected to make a “full recovery.”

“He is with his family, recuperating in Memphis and the doctors expect a full recovery,” Farnum said at the time.

“The Killer looks forward to getting back into the studio soon to record a Gospel record and on the road performing live for his fans. His family requests privacy at this time. Well wishes and prayers are greatly appreciated,” Farnum added.

Lewis kept busy last year performing at packed venues across the country. He originally became an instant sensation in 1957 with his hit songs “Great Balls of Fire” and “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On.” Lewis was part of the Memphis music scene that set the ‘50s ablaze alongside Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash.

Lewis married caretaker Judith Lewis in 2012.

Prince memoir ‘The Beautiful Ones’ coming this fall

The memoir Prince was working on at the time of his death is coming out Oct. 29.

Random House confirmed Monday to The Associated Press that “The Beautiful Ones” will combine Prince unfinished manuscript with rare photos, scrapbooks and lyrics. First announced just weeks before his 2016 death, the 288-page book will include an introduction by New Yorker writer Dan Piepenbring, whom Prince had chosen as a collaborator. The memoir is an exclusive partnership with the Prince Estate.

“‘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,” Random House announced.

The book will span from Prince’s childhood to his early years as a musician to the cusp of international stardom, using Prince’s own writings, a scrapbook of his personal photos, and the original handwritten lyric sheets for many of his most iconic songs, which he kept at Paisley Park. The book depicts Prince’s evolution through deeply revealing, never-before-shared images and memories and culminates with his original handwritten treatment for his masterwork, ‘Purple Rain.'”

PRINCE’S ONLY FOCUS WAS MUSIC, GUITARIST SAYS

PRINCE’S FIRST GUITARIST TALKS JAMMING WITH A LEGEND

Piepenberg’s introduction will touch upon Prince’s final days, “a time when Prince was thinking deeply about how to reveal more of himself and his ideas to the world, while retaining the mystery and mystique he’d so carefully cultivated.”

Prince died three years ago, on April 21, from an accidental overdose of fentanyl at the age of 57.

In 2018, literary agent Esther Newberg told Variety that Prince had completed more than 50 handwritten pages.

The book’s editor, Chris Jackson, said in a statement “The Beautiful Ones” was “a beautiful tribute to his life.”

“It’s also much more than that: it’s a genuinely moving and energizing literary work, full of Prince’s ideas and vision, his voice and image,” said Jackson, whose other authors have included comedian Trevor Noah and journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates. “It’s a treasure not just for Prince fans but for anyone who wants to see one of our greatest creative artists and original minds at work on his greatest creation: himself.”

Michelle Branch and Patrick Carney of the Black Keys are married.

The Grammy-winning musicians tied the knot Saturday at the Marigny Opera House in New Orleans in front of close friends and family, a representative for Carney told The Associated Press on Sunday.

Carney, 39, wore a Burberry suit.

The couple began dating in 2015. They collaborated together on Branch’s 2017 album, “Hopeless Romantic.”

Branch’s hits include “All You Wanted,” ”Everywhere,” ”Are You Happy Now?” and “The Game of Love,” with Santana.

Moves like Jagger: Mick Jagger’s partner debuts Rolling Stones-themed dance

Westlake Legal Group moves-like-jagger-mick-jaggers-partner-debuts-rolling-stones-themed-dance Moves like Jagger: Mick Jagger's partner debuts Rolling Stones-themed dance fox-news/entertainment/music fox-news/entertainment/genres/rock fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fnc/entertainment fnc Associated Press article 45a74865-a011-5110-b698-beeb43ea0f1d

Talk about your “Moves Like Jagger.” The recovering rocker made a stealth appearance at the ballet, slipping backstage to support his partner, Melanie Hamrick, as she presented her new dance based on Rolling Stones songs.

It was Hamrick’s first work as choreographer, with a score arranged by Jagger of three Stones classics: “Sympathy for the Devil,” ”She’s a Rainbow,” and “Paint it Black.” Hamrick created the short ballet for the 20th anniversary of Youth America Grand Prix, the world’s largest ballet scholarship competition, in which she performed as a teenager.

Jagger didn’t appear onstage or in the audience. But he did greet the crowd at New York‘s Lincoln Center on Thursday night via a backstage mic.

ROLLING STONES’ MICK JAGGER ‘ON THE MEND’ AFTER HEART SURGERY

“Hi everybody, this is Mick Jagger here,” he said, congratulating YAGP on its anniversary and adding: “I hope you are going to enjoy this wonderful ballet — and the music of course.”

The 75-year-old rocker recently underwent medical treatment, reportedly for a heart valve issue, forcing postponement of the Stones’ No Filter tour.

Hamrick said later in an interview that Jagger was “doing great. Thank goodness!”

“It was cute,” she said of his visit backstage. “He wanted to watch the piece. It was really special that he was there and able to see it. It feels good (for the dancers) when the choreographer and the person who wrote the music are watching you. It gave everyone an extra special feeling.”

MICK JAGGER POSTS FIRST PHOTO FOLLOWING HEART SURGERY

Hamrick, who dances with American Ballet Theater but did not perform herself in the piece, said it had been nerve-wracking presenting her first choreographic effort.

It was Jagger, she said, who encouraged her to take the plunge when the idea came up, from YAGP founder Larissa Saveliev, for Hamrick to do something with Stones music.

“Mick was, ‘Who better than you? You’re a professional ballerina, you come to my concerts,'” she said. “It went from there.”

LOST MICK JAGGER, CARLY SIMON DUET UNEARTHED

Hamrick, 31, noted that the scholarship program was responsible for launching her career; though she didn’t win, her performance there led to a contract to perform at ABT’s Studio Company in 2003. She joined the main company in 2004.

It was Hamrick who chose the songs for the ballet, called “Porte Rouge,” or “Red Door” (as in, “I see a red door….”). Jagger arranged the songs to fit.

“We worked together and he said, ‘Just trust your gut … go with what your instincts are, and I’ll help you figure out how to make the cuts.'”

MICK JAGGER’S HEART SURGERY A ‘MIRACLE PROCEDURE’

“I picked the songs I felt I connected with the most,” she said, “and I was like, ‘Can you make these work?’ And he took it away. He was very good, he was, ‘You do YOU.'”

The dancers included six from ABT and one from New York City Ballet. But the obvious Jagger “character” appeared to be the Argentine ABT star Herman Cornejo, with even his flowing mop of hair resembling the Stones frontman.

“I feel like they have the same energy,” Hamrick noted.

ROLLING STONES’ KEITH RICHARDS FINALLY GETS SOBER

Another standout dancer in the piece, Calvin Royal III, said he’d particularly enjoyed the experience of “bringing rock ‘n’ roll to ballet.”

“I think it was just such a beautiful relationship that needed to be merged,” said Royal, a soloist with ABT. “It’s so athletic and dynamic, and it was just fun to perform.”

Royal, 30, admitted he hadn’t had much previous experience with Stones music.

“To be honest with you, I hadn’t heard a lot of Rolling Stones music until Melanie approached me about this project, and I went on Spotify and just started listening to a lot of their music,” he said.

ROLLING STONES LAND IN CUBA FOR HISTORIC FREE CONCERT

He did, though, get to meet Jagger. “It was great to have him on board to support us,” Royal said.

Hamrick noted she’d had to strike a fine line with channeling the essence of the Stones, without imitating those moves like Jagger.

“I studied some videos of his, because I didn’t want to imitate, but I wanted you to feel the essence, and I didn’t want him to tell me what to do, because I wanted it to be original,” she said.

Is there a future for the piece? Hamrick said she’s planning for it to reappear as a longer piece, with more Stones songs. “Hopefully everyone will like it,” she said with a smile.

Jimmy Page reflects on Led Zeppelin’s legacy and its sound

When Jimmy Page was a young student, he had already developed such an inseparable relationship with his guitar that school officials would often confiscate it.

“It would be given back at the end of the day. And this was quite repetitive,” Page said.

That dedication worked out pretty well for Page, who took Led Zeppelin to the zenith as one of the most powerful outfits in rock history.

Now some of the instruments that he used to create that Zeppelin sound are on display at an exhibition called “Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

LED ZEPPELIN GUITARIST JIMMY PAGE’S LEGENDARY DRAGON AXE REVIVED BY FENDER

Seven of Page’s guitars, a few costumes and some of his equipment have been loaned to the exhibit, alongside dozens of guitars, drums and memorabilia from such legends as Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bo Diddley and John Lennon.

While visiting the exhibition, Page sat down with The Associated Press to discuss the band’s legacy, why its music has endured and prospects for another reunion concert.

JURY FINDS LED ZEPPELIN DID NOT STEAL GUITAR INTO TO ‘STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN’

AP: How frustrating are the Led Zeppelin reunion questions? You weren’t completely happy with Live Aid or the 40th anniversary concert for Atlantic Records in 1988. What about the 2007 concert in London?
Page:
I’m rather pleased that we did it, because we sort of looked still similar to what we looked now, and, yeah, we did a really good job. But I don’t think there’s going to be another one.

AP: Let’s talk about your earliest recollection with the guitar.
Page:
I was taking my guitar to school so that I could play at recess because I became so involved with it, we became inseparable. I had to do my academic studies, that was the deal I had with my dad. And the rest of the time I could play guitar. So, I took that one step further: I would take that to school and play at recess.

PAMELA DES BARRES RECALLS GROUPIE DAYS WITH ROCK LEGENDS, NAMES HER TRUE LOVE

AP: Your guitar work for Led Zeppelin was far ahead of the curve…
Page:
I’d like to think that it was, because the first album, I sort of knew, as we were doing the tracks, exactly how I was going to layer everything and the textures of them…. There’s a variety of moods on ‘Led Zeppelin I.’ So, again, it was me challenging and pushing as far as I possibly could, not even thinking of my limitations, just going beyond, beyond, beyond.

AP: What’s it like having your guitars in the Met?
Page:
You approach the gallery through Greco-Roman statues, and then the first thing you see is Chuck Berry’s guitar. I said, ‘What? The original one, the blond one,’ and they said, ‘Yes.’ And I said, ‘What would you like? Tell me what you want to help this along and you can have whatever it is that you want.’

AP: You gave them your Sovereign Harmony acoustic guitar. How important is it?
Page:
That guitar I had way back in the early ’60s. And it’s been with me all the way through, to the point where I used it as a writing tool… That particular guitar is the vehicle whereby the first album for Led Zeppelin is written, the second album is written, the third album is written, the fourth album is written and it’s the guitar that actually culminates with playing ‘Stairway to Heaven.’

AP: Why has the Led Zeppelin catalogue endured?
Page:
It approaches so many different styles and moods and it’s very passionate. And it also very gentle. And it’s very hard. And it’s extremely dynamic. If anybody wants to be playing the guitar, the harmonica, the drums, the bass, the keyboards — well, it’s all there. And it’s organic music where everyone is playing together. I think it’s a great legacy to have produced, to be honest.

An Elviis Presley aficionado from Denmark has submitted a design for a LEGO Graceland to an idea forum, hoping to garner enough votes to turn the King of Rock n’ Roll’s Memphis, Tenn., home into an official LEGO set.

Jimmi Jakobsen, who goes by Jimmi-DK on the toy company’s website, first proposed the idea for a LEGO Graceland kit in the LEGO IDEAS forum in August, the Commercial Appeal of Memphis reported. The site gives every designer a year to get 1,000 supporters in order to move their concept to the next step.

But with added support from the official Elvis Pressley Twitter account, Jakobsen’s idea is closer to becoming a reality.

KELLIE PICKLER, PRISCILLA PRESLEY SET TO STAR IN ‘WEDDING AT GRACELAND’

The official Elvis Pressley Twitter account posted Wednesday about Jakobsen’s design to help push him over the 1,000 mark. As of early Saturday, the product idea has more than 800 supporters with just 188 days left. Ultimately, Elvis’ LEGO Mansion needs 10,000 supporters before it will be considered by the toy company’s review board.

A 22-year-old Elvis Presley purchased Graceland and its surrounding 13.8-acre estate in 1957 at the start of his booming career while he geared up to record motion pictures “Loving You” and “Jailhouse Rock,” the property’s official website said. Graceland was name a National Historic Landmark in 2006 and is the second most visited museum house in the U.S, second only to the White House, Forbes reported in 2018.

“With this LEGO model of Graceland, I wanted to capture the look of the house. It’s open in the back for better playability,” Jakobsen, who’s never personally visited Elvis’ mansion, wrote on the LEGO site. “The set includes a mini figure of Presley with guitar and microphone. There’s also a piano inside the house among other things.”

Jakobsen’s 3,000-brick kit would create a miniature Graceland standing about 10 inches tall, 14 inches wide and 21 inches long. The Dane proposed 13 other LEGO designs, including sets of the Mona Lisa, the Sojourner Mars Rover and KITT from “Knight Rider.”

Bruce Springsteen surprises with performance at cancer benefit

Westlake Legal Group BruceSpringstein1 Bruce Springsteen surprises with performance at cancer benefit Variety Michele Amabile Angermiller fox-news/good-news fox-news/entertainment/music fox-news/entertainment/genres/rock fox-news/entertainment fnc/entertainment fnc article 328c9b75-7542-58b3-a170-0eb4bb69a812

Bruce Springsteen took the stage for the first time in 2019 with photographer Danny Clinch and his Tangiers Blues Band, at New York’s Tribeca Grill on Saturday night at a benefit supporting the Kristen Ann Carr Fund.

Springsteen and company rocked the house that included a set similar to the one performed at the opening of the New Jersey venue Asbury Lanes last year: Johnny Rivers’ “Rockin’ Pneumonia and Boogie Woogie Flu” and the old boogie-woogie standard, “Down the Road Apiece,” popularized by Chuck Berry and the Rolling Stones.

The event — “A Night to Remember” — raises money and awareness in the charity’s fight against sarcoma, a form of cancer. Carr, the daughter of rock journalist and Sirius XM E Street Radio host Dave Marsh and Springsteen co-manager Barbara Carr, died of the disease in 1993 at the age of 21.

Clinch was the main honoree of the evening at the gala, held at the Tribeca Grill Loft in New York City. Also in attendance was E Street Band member Roy Bittan.

The festive affair also held a silent auction, with items that included an autographed print of a picture of Springsteen on the beach — featured on the cover of Variety in October 2017 — a full set of Bobblehead dolls carefully crafted to resemble the E Street Band (which auctioned off for $10,500), and a guitar autographed by Pearl Jam.

Springsteen and the E Street Band are taking a hiatus from touring, as he already indicated the band won’t be on the road in 2019. The 69-year old musician has indicated interest in performing his solo show, “Springsteen on Broadway,” in other markets.

“There’s other projects to take up my time,” he told Marsh in a Sirius XM interview. “I am looking forward to doing some other things and at some point I will probably get back to [‘Springsteen on Broadway’], or something like it in the future, because it was such an enjoyable format to work in.”

Those “other projects” include a long-in-the-works solo record, he told Variety.

“Really, that record is influenced by Southern California pop music of the ’70s,” he said. “Glen Campbell, Jimmy Webb, Burt Bacharach, those kinds of records. It’s a singer-songwriter record. It’s connected to my solo records writing wise, more Tunnel of Love and Devils and Dust, but it’s not like them at all. Just different characters living their lives.”
