Biopic on Late AC/DC Vocalist Bon Scott Casts Lead Actor + Begins Pre-Production

Warner Brothers / Publicity Photo He was one of the more entertaining characters in rock music and now the short life and times of late AC/DC frontman Bon Scott will be featured on the big screen. After spending the last year getting the cast and crew lined up, pre-production has begun on the biopic. According to Bravewords.com , filmmaker J.R. Getches shot the first-ever dramatic portrayal of the musician on Jan. 14, with actor-singer Rob Liotti handling the role of Scott. The director says, “The story of Bon Scott is a classical tragedy. He travelled across the world, made his mark and then died too young. He was a misfit who found his place in rock music and became immortal pursuing his dream. This is a story worth telling.” While Liotti has been cast in the lead role, the remaining actors for the film have not been revealed. However, it is known that Malcolm and Angus Young, Mark Evans, Phil Rudd and Margaret “Silver” Smith are among the roles that have been cast. Liotti reportedly shed 40 pounds in order to prepare to play Scott. At present, High Voltage Productions Pty. are currently seeking an independent production house to help them complete their vision, but they have stated that the film’s trailer will help serve in fundraising and give a visual perpetuity to investors and the public.

Green Day Streaming ‘¡Tre!’ In Its Entirety

Reprise The final installment of Green Day ‘s trilogy doesn’t hit stores for another week, but fans can get a sneak preview now. ‘¡Tré!’ is currently streaming in full at this location . The album will be released on Dec. 11. ‘¡Tré!’ was originally scheduled to be released in January of next year, but after frontman Billie Joe Armstrong entered rehab , the band canceled their remaining 2012 live shows and moved the album’s release to December. Drummer Tre Cool explained, “We feel bad we have to delay our tour, so to make up for it we want to give our fans the music earlier than we had planned. If we couldn’t be there to play it for you live, the least we could do was give you the next best thing.” ‘ ¡Uno! ‘ was released in September and ‘ ¡Dos! ‘ followed in November. Both albums were well-received, with Loudwire reviewers bestowing four out of five stars on each. After the three albums, Green Day will release the documentary ‘ ¡Quatro! ,’ which will give viewers a behind the scenes look at the recording process of ‘¡Uno!,’ ‘¡Dos!, and ‘¡Tre!.’ The complete documentary won’t be available until 2013, but a show with highlights from the film premiered on VH1 in November. It will be shown several more times on Palladia through Dec. 22. [button href=”http://www.iheartradio.com/iplaylist/artist/69310/” title=”Listen to Green Day – ‘¡Tré!’ ” align=”center”]

Hellyeah, ‘Drink Drank Drunk’ Video – Exclusive Premiere

Eleven Seven Music Hellyeah are a band that have likely never said no to a party invite, so it seems only fitting that they’d write the perfect theme song to accompany any rockin’ affair. In their new video for their anthemic party tune ‘Drink Drank Drunk,’ Hellyeah get up close and personal, taking fans right up onstage with them during one of their summer festival appearances. And Loudwire is proud to bring the party to you with the exclusive premiere of the ‘Drink Drank Drunk’ video (watch below). The mix of onstage antics and crowd debauchery paint a perfect picture of exactly what fans can expect at any Hellyeah show, and drummer Vinne Paul couldn’t agree more. “Our new video for ‘Drink Drank Drunk’ was shot live at Rocklahoma,” remarks the legendary stickman. “It captures the energy and spirit of what Hellyeah and our audience are all about!! Hellyeah!!” That energy and spirit was an integral part of the making of the song ‘Drink Drank Drunk’ too. In a past interview with Loudwire, Vinnie Paul called it their “heaviest party song ever” explaining it as, “Hellagroove, great riffs, everything about it is just us, 100%.” ‘Drink Drank Drunk’ is the newest single from Hellyeah’s latest disc ‘Band of Brothers’ released on July 17. The group is currently out on the road in support of the disc; check out all the remaining tour dates here to get a live taste of ‘Drink Drank Drunk.’ Watch Hellyeah’s ‘Drink Drank Drunk’ Video [Exclusive Premiere] [button href=”http://loudwire.com/hellyeah-vinnie-paul-chad-gray-band-of-brothers-touring-more/” title=”Hellyeah’s Vinnie Paul and Chad Gray Talk ‘Band of Brothers,’ Touring + More” align=”center”]

Machine Head Exit Current Tour as Frontman Robb Flynn Undergoes Emergency Surgery

Machinehead1.com Machine Head are having to exit their current tour, at least temporarily, as singer Robb Flynn  undergoes emergency surgery to deal with a double inguinal hernia that has become the source of tremendous pain for the frontman. The band was out on tour in support of their ‘ Machine F—ing Head ‘ double live album, and were touring alongside Dethklok , All That Remains  and Black Dahlia Murder on the run. But this evening (Nov. 13), the group informed fans that it would miss nine shows on the trek as Flynn recovers from a planned surgery on Wednesday (Nov. 14.). Machine Head released a statement via their website on the matter which read: Machine Head must exit their current North American tour with Dethklok, All That Remains and Black Dahlia Murder due to matters completely beyond their control. Frontman Robb Flynn must have emergency surgery. Flynn had planned to go under the knife in January after completing the tour as he has been playing through the pain of a double inguinal hernia since the tour started in October. He had hoped to continue the tour despite extreme discomfort, but it’s become too difficult to continue on. Flynn will undergo surgery tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov. 14 in Minneapolis before returning home to California to recover, rest and recuperate. Machine Head will rejoin the tour in Portland, OR. Machine Head extends its regrets to fans, the other bands, and the other crews for having to leave the tour prematurely. Flynn also offered a statement of his own on the matter: I’ve been toughing out an inguinal hernia below my waistline since June of last year, and a few months ago got a second hernia in my nuts. What basically happens is my guts drop into my nuts, and it looks like I have a third testicle (man, I can hear the jokes already!) It hasn’t been that painful, and I’ve gone to the doctor a few times to take care of it, but he said after surgery I probably couldn’t sing for a few weeks, and since that wasn’t going to happen, I scheduled it for January when I had a break. Unfortunately, after the last few shows, my guts have been very swollen and hard to push back in. Yesterday, the pain was excruciating and I went to the emergency room last night. They said that I need surgery. I will be doing my damnedest to rejoin the tour in a couple weeks. Thanks to all the fans, bands, and crew for understanding. I’m determined to see you all soon and finish what has been a great freakin tour! The tour is scheduled to run through Dec. 8 in Atlanta.
