Record Store Day is coming! Check out 2012 releases, Ambassador Iggy Pop shares vinyl memories (video)

Record Store Day 2012 is upon us next weekend (April 21) and a more than worthy Iggy Pop is the 2012 Ambassador. Record Store Day started five years ago when 700+ American indie stores came together to celebrate record store culture. It always takes place on the third Saturday in April. The U.K. followed suit, with 2012 marking its fourth celebration as an independent sector. Similar to the U.S., the U.K. indie stores partner with bands to celebrate art of music with special exclusive releases that are desirable to own and fun to collect. Iggy will be making his own Record Day Store stop at Sweat Records for Sweatstock in Miami, Florida. If you're in the area, get over there!

Check out this fantastic video of Ambassador Iggy sharing his vinyl memories. He talks about his first purchase, working in a record store, and so much more:

There is an abundance of rock being released again this year, with this list of artists worth noting: 311, Amberlin, Arcade Fire, Aretha Franklin/Otis Redding, Brad, Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie, Disturbed, Eddie Vedder, Flogging Molly, Garbage, Genesis, Grace Potter and The Nocturnals, Eve 6, Iggy Pop and The Stooges, Janis Joplin, Jimmy Fallon (Tebowie), Joey Ramone, Little Richard, Mastodon/Feist, Metallica, Misfits, Ozzy Osbourne, Paul McCartney, Pete Townshend, Phish, Rainbow, Rival Sons, Small Faces, Switchfoot, T. Rex, The Black Keys, The Byrds, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood, The Clash, The Cult, The Grateful Dead, The Knack, The White Stripes, Social Distortion, Lou Reed, Paul Simon, and many more.

Please support your local Record Store! It is more important than you know. With the talk of Best Buy closing stores, and the past bankruptsy of Circuit City, our local Record Stores are one of the last places to be exposed to and buy new music in that type of enviroment. Fuck Wal-Mart (and Best Buy and Circuit City for that matter), we need to keep the experience alive of going to a business where they care about all music and care about exposing new artists of merit. The shared experience and coolness of a howntown record store CANNOT go away!!  Get all the info and the stores near you here:

Let's highlight a few of the releases. Metallica's four-song EP called "Beyond Magnetic", which was made available digitally in December, and as a physical CD in January, will be released on silver vinyl to celebrate Record Store Day on April 21. The effort consists of the quartet of previously unheard tracks that the band unveiled in concert in December during its 30th-anniversary celebration. All four tunes, 'Hate Train', 'Just A Bullet Away', 'Hell And Back' and 'Rebel Of Babylon' were recorded during the sessions for the band's 2008 'Death Magnetic' album but left off the final track list. The studio versions of all four songs- all rough mixes were sent to Metalica fan club members one at a time, after each song was performed live during each of the band's four shows at the Fillmore in San Francisco.

Metallica talks Record Store Day: "We've always been big supporters of our friends at independent retail and the annual event the third Saturday of each April... we even helped kick off the first year in 2008 with an in-store appearance at one of our hometown stores! To add to the fun, this is no ordinary black vinyl release, but instead will be on silver vinyl with an exclusive Metallica sticker included in the package. Look for the EP on the special Saturday release date at your favorite local record store and on"

Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will release an Ozzy Osbourne seven-inch and 12-inch vinyl release. The Ozzy releases for Record Store Day 2012 are:

Sources say Black Sabbath had to pull out of the Coachella Music Festival because of Tony Iommi’s lymphoma diagnosis

by on Jan.10, 2012, under ROCK NEWS

Sources say Black Sabbath had to pull out of the Coachella Music Festival because of Tony Iommi’s lymphoma diagnosis is reporting: The reunited Black Sabbath was one of the planned headliners for this year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, but was forced to pull out just before yesterday's official lineup announcement due to guitarist Tony Iommi's recent lymphoma diagnosis, multiple industry sources tell Billboard.

It's unclear which artist was added as a last-minute replacement for Coachella, which will be headlined by Radiohead, the Black Keys and Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, and held for the first time over two weekends (April 13-15, April 20-22) in Indio, Calif.

As reported yesterday, Iommi, 63, is working with his doctors to determine the best course of treatment. It is unknown if further live dates will be affected by his diagnosis, including a previously announced headlining slot at the Download Festival in England in early June.

Best of luck and health to Tony Iommi!
