Aerosmith Deny Rumors They're Replacing Steven Tyler

Aerosmith Deny Rumors They're Replacing Steven Tyler:

Aerosmith have issued a statement denying that the band is looking to replace singer Steven Tyler. "Any rumor out there about us looking for another singer is completely untrue," guitarist Joe Perry said in a statement. "All five of us were just on the phone together talking about how excited we are to go to South America and Mexico City." Aerosmith is scheduled to embark on their Latin American tour in September.

The band's clarification comes after guitarist Brad Whitford admitted in an interview with Metal Rules that the band had considered replacing Tyler in 2009 amid a row between Tyler and his bandmates. With Tyler on the road this summer promoting his country music-inspired solo career – and after AC/DC recruited Axl Rose to substitute for longtime singer Brian Johnson to fulfill that band's touring obligations – Whitford was again asked whether Aerosmith could continue on with another singer.

"Absolutely, we have considered it — but whether it will happen, I don't know. I think it would be great," Whitford said. At the time of the 2009 split, artists like Lenny Kravitz and Chris Cornell were rumored to be contenders to replace Tyler, and Whitford added some more potential vocalists to that list, "A lot of people, everybody from Myles Kennedy to Axl. We had a bunch of people a while ago like Sammy Hagar. It would be a lot of fun."

In April, Perry revealed to Rolling Stone that the band was considering a farewell tour in 2017 after Tyler made similar comments regarding one last trek for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inducted band.

"A farewell tour is something we've talked about doing for years, let's say roughly in the last five years," Perry told Rolling Stone. "It's just something the band's talked about at various times. At this point, the five of us have never sat down and said, 'It's time to do it.' So 'considering' is an appropriate word for that statement. A farewell tour is definitely not confirmed."

Perry, whose currently playing alongside Johnny Depp and Alice Cooper in the Hollywood Vampires, said of the band's post-Latin American tour plans, "We're talking about some different options at this point. Whether it's to do some shorter tours like the last couple we've done or go into the studio and knock a few songs out and see how that feels, I'm not sure yet. But right now we're really taking time off from the band and everybody's off doing their own thing."

Nick Menza, Former Megadeth Drummer, Dead at 51

Nick Menza, Former Megadeth Drummer, Dead at 51:

Nick Menza, former Megadeth drummer who performed with the thrash metal outfit's "classic" lineup for almost a decade, died Saturday after collapsing onstage during a concert in Studio City, California. He was 51.

The drummer's management confirmed the death in a statement: "Nick collapsed during the third song into a set with his band OHM. Earliest reports indicate he suffered a massive heart attack and was pronounced dead upon arrival at hospital."

Former Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman, who performed with Menza both in that band and as a solo artist, paid tribute to the drummer on Facebook, "We all know the great and unique drummer that Nick Menza was, but he was also a trustworthy friend, a hilarious bandmate, as well as a very loving dad. I’m beyond sad, did not see this coming at all. RIP Brother."

"TELL ME THIS ISN'T TRUE! I woke at 4 AM to hear Nick Menza passed away on 5/21 playing his drums w/Ohm at the Baked Potato," Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine tweeted Sunday, adding in a follow-up tweet, "I am gutted."

The son of Buddy Rich's longtime jazz saxophonist Don Menza, Nick Menza began his career as a session musician before he was recruited by then-Megadeth drummer Chuck Behler to serve as drum tech; after Behler left the band, Mustaine asked Menza to join Megadeth in 1989.

Menza provided drums on four Megadeth studio albums, including their classic 1990 LP Rust in Peace and 1992's Countdown to Extinction; Menza co-wrote lyrics on the latter's title track. Live, Menza had a notable presence onstage for the way he attacked his double bass drum kit.

Menza's tenure in Megadeth ended in 1998, when knee problems and a benign tumor forced him to leave the band's tour in support of Cryptic Writings; Menza was abruptly replaced on a permanent basis by drummer Jimmy DeGrasso, the former Suicidal Tendencies member who also performed alongside Mustaine in his MD.45 side project.

In 2015, Mustaine revealed to Rolling Stone that Megadeth's classic Rust in Peace era lineup - with Friedman, Menza and bassist David Ellefson - nearly reunited in the early 2000s, "but it just wasn't meant to happen. I think there was so much bitterness because of the people that were managing us at the time. If you poison the well you can't expect there to be an area of clean water anywhere."

Following Megadeth, Menza performed in acts like Memorain, Orphaned to Hatred and his own Deltanaut. In 2002, Menza released a solo album titled Life After Deth.

Watch Britney Spears' Career-Spanning Billboard Music Awards Performance

Watch Britney Spears' Career-Spanning Billboard Music Awards Performance:

Britney Spears opened the Billboard Music Awards with a career-spanning medley of her hits. Spears is this year's recipient of the Billboard Millennium award.

Clad in red and entering through the fog, Spears launched her medley with "Work Bitch," channeling a futuristic ringmaster. She went as far back as 2001 for her set list, performing her cover of "I Love Rock 'N' Roll" after her 2008 hit "Womanizer." The star and her dancers powered through deep cuts like "Touch of My Hand" and "Breathe on Me" as well as classics like "I'm a Slave 4 U" and "Toxic," which closed her ferocious opening performance.

Following the release of 2013's Britney Jean, Spears launched a residency in Las Vegas at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. She extended her contract last year and will remain at Planet Hollywood through 2017.

Her first hints at a follow-up to her 2013 album came last year with "Pretty Girls," which featured writing credit from girl group Little Mix and a guest spot from Iggy Azaela who also co-directed the Earth Girls Are Easy-inspired music video. It was performed live for the first time at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. Around the same time, Spears appeared on Giorgio Moroder's star-studded comeback album Déjà Vu doing a disco cover of "Tom's Diner."

Read Dave Mustaine's Moving Homage to Late Megadeth Drummer Nick Menza

Read Dave Mustaine's Moving Homage to Late Megadeth Drummer Nick Menza:

Dave Mustaine has released a statement in tribute to Nick Menza, Megadeth's drummer for most of the Nineties, who died on Saturday. The frontman wrote that Menza, who played on "Holy Wars," "Symphony of Destruction" and "Trust," among other hits, "remained a great friend, a true professional and a larger than life personality," throughout his life.

"Originally a tech for the band, Nick soon displayed such talent and personality, it didn't take long for us to realize he belonged onstage with us behind the kit," Mustaine wrote. "We asked Nick to join Megadeth as our drummer in 1989. At the time, the band already had its first [gold] album, which only served to stoke the fire. We all wanted world domination, with so much of our lives and dreams ahead of us. As we navigated through the pitfalls of life and the music business, our first album with Nick, Rust in Peace, and subsequent albums Countdown to Extinction and Youthanasia, kept up the momentum. We parted ways after Cryptic Writings. We, like all brothers, would disagree at times, but our bond was strong throughout."

Megadeth achieved their greatest fame and sales during Menza's tenure. Rust in Peace, Youthanasia and Cryptic Writings were all certified platinum, while Countdown to Extinction went double-platinum. The latter record, released in 1992, is also the band's highest-charting release, as it made it to Number Two on the Billboard 200.

Mustaine wrote that he remained on good terms with Menza after the drummer left the group, including before and after a short period in 2004 when the drummer returned to the lineup. He also praised Menza's "powerful jazzy flair" and entertaining personality onstage.

The drummer collapsed during the third song of a concert with this band Ohm. His management said that reports indicated he'd suffered a massive heart attack and was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital. The singer intends to launch a campaign to help the drummer's children.

Dave Mustaine's full Nick Menza remembrance:

I woke up this morning to a text message from my son, with the news of Nick Menza's passing. Shocked, devastated, and saddened don't begin to describe my feelings.

Originally a tech for the band, Nick soon displayed such talent and personality, it didn't take long for us to realize he belonged onstage with us behind the kit. We asked Nick to join Megadeth as our drummer in 1989. At the time, the band already had its first [gold] album, which only served to stoke the fire. We all wanted world domination, with so much of our lives and dreams ahead of us. As we navigated through the pitfalls of life and the music business, our first album with Nick, Rust in Peace, and subsequent albums Countdown to Extinction and Youthanasia, kept up the momentum. We parted ways after Cryptic Writings. We, like all brothers, would disagree at times, but our bond was strong throughout.

As a player, Nick had a very powerful jazzy flair, unpredictable and always entertaining. And, as great a drummer as he was, the time spent with him as a person, a bandmate and a friend was even more fun. There were several times we discussed him coming back to the band, but for various reasons it never came together. We've been in touch all along, he had come out to our shows recently and he had remained a great friend, a true professional and a larger than life personality.

The Megadeth family take care of each other, and expect to hear soon about an initiative to help Nick's children. All of us in this community are connected, take care of yourself and your loved ones.

My deepest condolences go out to Nick's family.

Watch Justin Bieber's Vibrant Billboard Music Awards Performance:

Justin Bieber performed a medley of new single "Company" with his hit "Sorry" at the Billboard Music Awards Sunday night. Both songs appear on his fourth album Purpose, released last November.

Bieber emerged onstage bathed in aqua club lighting singing "Company" with a phalanx of background dancers and acrobats dressed in white. The smooth set came to a climax once trumpets signaled Bieber's chart-crushing hit "Sorry." The singer knelt to shake hands with fans, with whom he has had a rocky relationship with this past month.

Earlier this year, Bieber took home his first Grammy award for Best Dance Recording alongside Jack Ü for their inescapable collaboration "Where Are Ü Now." At the ceremony, Bieber, Skrillex and Diplo turned the song into a rock jam with the EDM superproducers moving from behind the boards to behind guitars and drums.

Bieber is currently in the midst of his Purpose world tour. Within the first couple weeks of being on the road, he canceled all future fan meet-and-greets for the current tour, revealing that they left hi "drained and unhappy." For similar reasons, Bieber has also revealed that he will no longer take photos with fans who see or meet him in public, stating that it makes him feel like a "zoo animal."

Watch Kesha Cover Bob Dylan's 'It Ain't Me Babe' at Billboard Music Awards:

Kesha performed a tender, powerful cover of Bob Dylan's "It Ain't Me Babe" at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards.

Slowing down the folk track, Ben Folds joined the singer on piano and a violinist. Though her mother Pebe Sebert had been active as country songwriter, Kesha's take on the Dylan classic is a huge departure from the dance music and pop-leaning hip-hop she launched her career with.

Kesha's journey to the Billboard Music Awards has been rocky. Since it was her first televised performance since her legal battle against Sony and Dr. Luke occurred, TMZ reported that her "statement" performance at the show would directly reference the litigation. Therefore, Kemosabe, Dr. Luke's Sony imprint that Kesha remains legally bound to, axed her appearance at the show.

After the cancelation, Kesha revealed her plans to cover the Dylan classic, and how Folds offered her a platform to perform it on during a Los Angeles concert last week. The day after her debut performance of the cover, Kemosabe released a statement and revealed that her appearance had been reinstated.

Rihanna performed her bluesy, emotional ballad "Love on the Brain" at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards Sunday night. The singer recently wrapped the North American leg of a world tour in support of her eighth album Anti.

"I'm tired of being played like a violin," Rihanna sang during her gut-wrenching solo performance. "What do I gotta do to get in your motherfucking heart?" The singer began in the dark, crooning into the microphone stand before commanding the stage like Whitney Houston – a storm of tour-de-force vocals singed by a lover's betrayal.

After canceling her Grammy appearance and postponing the first few dates of her tour, Rihanna launched her Anti world tour in March. She's released three singles and videos from the album so far, including the steamy, Director X-helmed "Work" featuring Drake, the sleek black-and-white "Kiss It Better" and the Harmony Korine-directed, violent "Needed Me" clip.

In April, she made a surprise appearance during frequent collaborator Calvin Harris' Coachella set. Later that month, they debuted the addictive, anthemic "This Is What You Came For," their first new song since 2011's "We Found Love,"

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton brought their first collaboration "Go Ahead and Break My Heart" to the Billboard Music Awards stage Sunday night. The real-life couple will go on individual tours in support of their solo albums later this year.

The performance began with Shelton singing solo onstage before Stefani walked out. The pair kept eyes locked as they sang the romantic duet, which appears on Shelton's latest album If I'm Honest and was co-written by the two musicians.

Shelton and Stefani debuted the duet on The Voice. The single is also Stefani's country debut and follows the release of her first solo album in a decade, This Is What the Truth Feels Like.

Both artists' tours will take place this fall, and Stefani will be joined by rapper Eve whom she collaborated with on her single "Rich Girl" and Eve's single "Let Me Blow Ya Mind."
