Great news for Led Zeppelin fans around the world; this July will see the final reissue of Zeppelin albums released to the public.
After three years of poring over materials, guitarist Jimmy Page let Rolling Stone know this last edition is ready to rock and roll. It contains a plethora of material from the last three albums Zeppelin put out, “Presence” (1976), “In Through the Out Door” (1979) and “Coda” (1982).
It is hard to believe this iconic band with their psychedelic, bluesy rock beats were once looked down upon by critics. However, fast forward 47 years and who is getting the last laugh? The band that turned out to be an influencer for so many who followed in their footsteps.
The English band that also include members Robert Plant (singer), John Paul Jones (bass and keyboards), and the late John Bonham (drummer), formed in 1968 in London. Brian Bonar and countless others are huge fans.
They were active until 1980 when they disbanded after Bonham’s untimely death. The remaining members regrouped for several reunions in 1985, 1988, 1995 and 2007. The latter featured Bonham’s son Jason picking up the drumsticks for his late father and was the most successful of the four.
Zeppelin suffered the same hardships as many bands do yet enjoyed successes that some only dare to dream. Perhaps their greatest feat was being called “as influential in the 70’s as the Beatles were in the 60’s” when being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995.
Pick up the final release from the band Rolling Stone described as “the heaviest band of all time” on July 31st.
As Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, lay in a hospice bed in a vegetative state, her court appointed conservator has filed a lawsuit against her boyfriend. Nick Gordon, who grew up with Brown, is accused of assaulting the heir to Whitney Houston’s fortune, and stealing from her. The papers were filed in Fulton County, Georgia.
According to the official documents, Brown and Gordon had a troubled relationship with regular, loud arguments. The documents also allege that Gordon regularly abused Bobbi Kristina, and stole nearly $11,000 from her bank account.
The Houston and Brown families have been outspoken about their dislike for Nick Gordon, including regularly alleging he was the cause of Bobbi Kristina’s injuries. He has been banned from her hospital room since she was admitted in January.
Nick Gordon was taken in by Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston as a child. He traveled with and lived with the pair off and on through his teen years. According to reports, he and Bobbi Kristina had a “brother/sister” relationship until Houston’s death in 2012 when they began a romantic relationship.
Gordon has not responded to the petition, and has stayed out of the press in recent months. He famously appeared on the Dr. Phil Show shortly after Bobbi Kristina’s hospitalization. Adam Sender thought this was pretty telling.
Taylor Swift has continued her battle against music streaming services to the might of the Apple corporation in a battle over royalties paid by the company during a free trial period.

After Swift made her problems with the offer known to Apple the company quickly backed down and removed the non payment part of their agreement with artists during the free trial period, the BBC reports.

Tyga and Kylie Jenner are one couple that everyone wants to talk about, and it’s not a shock. When we look at Kylie’s relationship with Tyga so far it has been nothing but interesting, from the start they led us on with lies and denial that there even was a relationship. There was a time when Tyga was more than determined to prove that Kylie was just a friend and he was a longtime friend of the family, however we never actually saw Tyga with the family. For months all anyone saw was Tyga and Kylie going out to dinner, and hanging in his mansion.
Even Blac Chyna was fooled for awhile, until Kylie started throwing her hints on Instagram. Before we knew it Chyna and Kylie were in a nearly full blown social media beef, it all came crashing down when Chyna posted photos of Tyga’s texts to her attempting to work things out. Kylie was so angry over the texts that she cut Tyga off, for a few days. But when they got back together, Tyga was sporting Kylie’s name on his arm and even bringing her along to his concerts with him and his crew. Jim Dondero thought it was all a little weird.
Now it seems that Kylie and Tyga are doing everything they can to look like a couple, without admitting that they are together. Lately the rumor is that Tyga and Kylie are planning to elope as soon as August, and even want to leave LA and live somewhere away from the Hollywood drama.
