  • Out now is Rod Stewart‘s 32nd album, The Tears Of Hercules. Rod, who wrote nine of the album’s dozen tracks, said in the album’s liner notes, “I’ve never said this before about any previous efforts, but I believe this is by far my best album in many a year.”
  • Last year, Cheap Trick released its 20th studio album, In Another Word. The set, which was produced by Julian Raymond, includes the band’s recent cover of John Lennon‘s 1971 Imagine classic, “Gimme Some Truth.”
  • Cheap Trick frontman Robin Zander said in a statement announcing the album, “This band is held together by music. It’s the super glue that keeps us writing and putting records out. The reason we started the band in the first place was to tour and write songs and put records out. If all that went away, there would be no point then, would there?”
