Well, it’s Friday again, and I’ll be honest with you. This week’s rock news is just a bit different. This week, there is no video. Don’t blame me, blame Meat Sandwich. He’s on vacation and I honestly have no idea how to do the video. But I do know rock and roll, so here’s a recap of the week’s rock stories.

We started out the week with great news for Dead Heads. Dead and Company have scheduled four shows for the fall, and two of them are right here in New York. They’ll be playing Madison Square Garden on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1. The Dead back at The Garden for Halloween? Cool!

We also found out when the new album from Neil Young and Crazy Horse is coming out. It will be called Colorado, and it will be released in October. Even better, he will also be releasing a documentary about the making of the album at the same time. The documentary will be called Mountaintop Sessions. And Neil says we can look forward to live shows in 2020.

Joan Jett has teamed up with with country star Carrie Underwood to sing the Sunday Night Football theme song, a remake of Jett’s I Hate Myself for Loving You. You can catch a preview this Sunday, Aug. 25.

And finally, President Trump’s administration has filed an amicus brief with the U.S.Court of Appeals saying that Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to heaven did not infringe upon Spirit’s song Taurus.
