This Week’s Rock News: Rush, Whitesnake and COVID-19
It's Friday, and that means it's time to give you a recap of the week's rock news. It's all written, no video today. Why? Because our producer Meat Sandwich is in corona isolation. He's okay, but some family members have recently traveled, so better safe than sorry.
Speaking of coronavirus, get well wishes to Jackson Browne and Bon Jovi's David Bryan who both tested positive. And because of the pandemic the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Awards have been moved from May 2 to Nov. 7. And that's not the only coronavirus news. This Sunday, March 29, Elton John will host a special on Fox to raise funds and awareness for the battle against coronavirus. The performers will all be broadcasting from their own homes. The special airs at 9PM.
There is also non-corona news to share. Rush has confirmed the release of 40th anniversary editions of Permanent Waves The packages will be released in several formats on May. 29. And the Whitesnake 2020 tour is cancelled and it has nothing to do with coronavirus. It's because David Coverdale needs to recover from hernia surgery. Hope he gets well soon.
We do rock news for you every weekday morning at 6:45 on The Boris and Robyn Show. But if you miss it, check back here for the recap. Have a great weekend and thanks for listening.
