Pink Floyd to release new album after 20-year gap
LONDON (AP) -- A fresh Pink Floyd album is on the way -- 20 years after the band last released new material.
Spokesman Doug Wright confirmed Monday that "The Endless River" will be released in October. It's described as consisting of "mainly ambient and instrumental music" based on 1993-94 recording sessions for the group's last album, "The Division Bell."
"The Endless River" features band members David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright, who died in 2008. Roger Waters, who left the group in 1985, is not involved.
Gilmour's wife, writer Polly Samson, tweeted that the album "is Rick Wright's swansong and very beautiful."
White Castle wants to be Alice's restaurant
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Shock rocker Alice Cooper loves White Castle sliders.
Cooper is such a fan of the little square hamburgers that he showed up at the company headquarters in Columbus on Monday to be inducted into the restaurant's Craver Hall of Fame.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that the 66-year-old rock legend -- whose real name is Vincent Furnier -- told about 250 people gathered at the restaurant's headquarters stories about his father sharing White Castle burgers with him when he was a kid.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer was scheduled to open for Motley Crue on Tuesday night in Columbus.
Garth Brooks cancels his Dublin comeback
DUBLIN (AP) -- Like an ill-fated romance in a country song, Garth Brooks and Dublin just weren't meant to be. Promoters say five Irish concerts by the country music star have been canceled after a battle between venue owners and local residents.
The stint had been billed as a "Comeback Special" for the 52-year-old superstar.
Brooks was originally scheduled to play two shows, and when the number of performances was increased to cope with demand, some residents complained. Promoter Peter Aiken said Tuesday that attempts to reach agreement had failed and "no concerts will take place."
Priscilla Presley tells upset fans to 'calm down'
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Priscilla Presley is asking fans of her late ex-husband Elvis to "please calm down" after a report that two jets once owned by the singer could be removed from Graceland.
Fans have posted critical comments on Facebook since a report last week that Elvis Presley Enterprises informed the owners of the Lisa Marie and the Hound Dog II to prepare to remove the planes when their agreement ends next April.
On July 2, Priscilla posted a comment saying: "I see your posts about the planes. Please calm down, we're in the midst of negotiations. It's as simple as that. Thank you."
