Credit: Ross HalfinMetallica's new album Hardwired...to Self-Destruct arrives in November, eight years after their last effort, 2008's Death Magnetic. While the wait between albums may be long, Metallica doesn't plan to stop making music any time soon.

"I hope we go on making records until the day we fall over," drummer Lars Ulrich tells Rolling Stone. "That's what certainly inspires you and gives you a sense of still being in the game. I certainly respect peers of ours that feel different, but feeling we've still got something to say is an important part of feeling vital, feeling confident and feeling good about yourself."

Ulrich feels the same way about touring, and he hopes Metallica will continue to hit the road as long as they're physically able to do so.

"Songs like 'Battery' or 'Master of Puppets' or 'One' have this insane physical energy and demand," Ulrich says. "If you can't play it at the physical demand that it deserves, it's better to not play it than play it half-a****. That's the only unknown."

He adds, "I think mentally we could do this for another 100 years."

Hardwired...to Self-Destruct will be released on November 18.

Capitol Records/UMeOctober 10 marks the 50th anniversary of the release of one of The Beach Boys most enduring and beloved hits, "Good Vibrations." To coincide with the milestone, a 12-inch EP featuring five versions of the sonically inventive chart-topper pressed on sunburst vinyl will be released on October 7.

Co-written by founding Beach Boys Brian Wilson and Mike Love, "Good Vibrations" was recorded at multiple sessions at four different studios in Hollywood between February and September 1966. The song was highlighted by layered production, an episodic structure and unusual instrumentation, including a theremin.

The Good Vibrations (50th Anniversary Edition) vinyl EP features the original single version of the tune, an alternate take, an edit of the song that combines tracks from various sessions, an instrumental version and a live rehearsal performance recorded in August 1967 in Honolulu. The vinyl disc also includes "Let's Go Away for Awhile," which was the B-side of the "Good Vibrations" single. 

The EP's cover art replicates the artwork featured on the original U.S. "Good Vibrations" single. The vinyl disc comes packaged with a pull-out lithograph of the cover of the original Japanese "Good Vibrations" single.

In conjunction with the 50th anniversary of "Good Vibrations," The Beach Boys are giving fans in North America and the U.K.  the chance to submit themed video clips that may be incorporated into a new official video celebrating the song's milestone. Visit TheBeachBoys.com/GoodVibrations for more details.

Here's the track list for the Good Vibrations (50th Anniversary Edition) EP:

Side A
"Good Vibrations" (original 45 rpm single version)
"Good Vibrations" (various sessions)
"Good Vibrations" (alternate take)

Side B
"Good Vibrations" (instrumental)
"Good Vibrations" (live concert rehearsal: August 25, 1967)
"Let's Go Away for Awhile" (original B-side)

Ron Sachs-Pool/Getty ImagesTuesday night, Hillary Clinton lived out the dream of every woman of a certain age: she danced with Paul McCartney.

The occasion was a fundraiser at Jimmy Buffett's home in New York's ritzy Hamptons.  Guests who attended told reporters that McCartney asked Clinton to dance while Buffett was singing his classic "Cheeseburger in Paradise."  No word on whether she likes hers with lettuce and tomatoes.

Buffett also performed hits like "Margaritaville" and "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes."  McCartney played "Lady Madonna," "Jet" and "Can't Buy Me Love," and, regarding the circumstances, joked, "This is the first time I've paid to hear myself sing!"

McCartney, Buffett and Clinton supporter Jon Bon Jovi, who was also a guest, closed out the night with "Hey Jude."

Courtesy of MSO PREagles bassist Timothy B. Schmit will be back in his childhood hometown of Sacramento, California, today to be honored with one of the first stars on the city's new Walk of Stars. The inaugural unveiling ceremony will take place at 1614 19th Street, and will be followed in the evening by a VIP reception and gala dinner at the Memorial Auditorium.

Schmit tells ABC Radio that he thinks the honor is "pretty cool," and explains that while he wasn't born in Sacramento, he certainly developed his love of music while living there.

"I did all my schooling there, and I learned music there, made my first records with my friends from there, who are still great friends," he points out. "And then I went on and had a really…pretty great career, and I'm still having it." Schmit, who joined the Eagles in 1977, went on to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the band. He also played with the pioneering country-rock act Poco.

Besides Schmit, the inaugural class of Sacramento Walk of Stars honorees includes actor LeVar Burton, gold-medal-winning Olympic swimmer Debbie Meyer and two other local luminaries. Timothy reveals that he isn't planning to perform at the ceremony, but says, "I think I'm gonna be expected to speak a little bit…probably about my time living [in Sacramento]."

Schmit tells ABC Radio that among the things he likes about the California capital is that "it's full of history [and] it's got a good music scene too. Always has."

As previously reported, Schmit will be releasing a new solo album called Leap of Faith on September 23. Timothy says the record features an eclectic mix of tunes that includes country, reggae and rock influences.

Jimmy King; Rob ShanahanThe late David Bowie and famed Beatles drummer Ringo Starr and are among the music stars who will appear in the 2017 edition of the Guinness World Records book. Bowie is being recognized for the albums he sold, while Starr's record is in acknowledgment for one particularly pricey record that sold at an auction.

Earlier this year, Bowie set a posthumous world record for having the most simultaneous entries in the U.K. albums chart, when 19 of his releases appeared on the tally shortly after his January 10 death. Ten of those albums landed in the chart's top 40.

As for Starr, he set the mark for the most expensive vinyl record sold at auction, when his first pressing of The Beatles' self-titled 1968 album, a.k.a. The White Album, brought in $790,000 at a December 2015 memorabilia sale in Los Angeles. Ringo's copy of double-LP was a mono edition of the record that was numbered "0000001," and was in near-mint condition, having been stored in a vault for almost 35 years.

Heart frontwoman Ann Wilson's husband, Dean Wetter, was arrested early Saturday morning after he allegedly assaulted the twin teenage sons of guitarist Nancy Wilson after the band's concert Friday at the White River Amphitheatre in Auburn, Washington.

According to probable-cause documents procured by ABC Radio, the 65-year-old Wetter, who hasn't been charged, is accused of roughing up the boys during an altercation that took place outside of Wilson's tour bus.

The documents allege that the boys were walking by the bus and when they saw Wetter standing outside of it, they asked if they could look inside. Wetter told them they could, but warned them to watch the dogs that were in the vehicle. According to the report, when the boys exited the bus, they left the door open, which apparently angered Wetter, who allegedly yelled at the boys, called them names and then slapped one of them on the back of the head, punched him in the same spot and briefly grabbed him by the throat.

The report also claims that when the boy's brother stepped in to help, Wetter also grabbed him by the throat "[a]nd squeezed to the point he could not breathe for about five seconds before letting go." That boy "later complained of a sore, raspy throat, fear of dying and pain in his throat area."

Following his arrest, Wetter was booked into King County Jail in Kent, Washington, and then made an appearance on Monday at the King County District Court. He was released from custody on Monday after posting a $10,000 bond. Wetter is due to make a followup court appearance Wednesday.

Wilson and Wetter were married in April 2015 after rekindling a brief romance they had during the 1980s.

Credit: Steve KerosRed Hot Chili Peppers have shared a teaser for their upcoming "Go Robot" video. The clip shows a white paint-covered, basically naked Anthony Kiedis walking down the street wearing only a pair of white shoes, white gloves and a white hat, plus a very strategically placed codpiece that doesn't leave a lot to the imagination.

The end of the teaser promises that the full video is "coming soon."

"Go Robot" is the second single from the latest Chili Peppers album, The Getaway. It follows lead single "Dark Necessities," which reached #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs and Alternative Songs charts.

Courtesy of The Beatles ShopA long-lost demo acetate of a song called "It's for You" that Paul McCartney recorded in 1964 for U.K. pop star Cilla Black sold at a U.K. memorabilia auction over the weekend for 18,000 pounds, or about $23,590. BBC News reports that the demo was purchased by an unknown buyer on Saturday at the Liverpool Beatles Auction, which was held at the Unity Theatre in the Fab Four's hometown.

The recording recently was rediscovered by Black's nephew, Simon White, included in a collection of acetates by Cilla, who died in August 2015 at the age of 72. McCartney and his Beatles band mate John Lennon wrote the tune especially for Black, who scored a #7 hit in the U.K. with it.

White believes his aunt gave the acetate to his dad, Cilla's brother, sometime during the mid-'60s. The acetate was rediscovered when Simon recently brought a stack of 21 discs that he thought were all Cilla's demos to The Beatles Shop memorabilia store in Liverpool to be appraised.

White listened to the demos with The Beatles Shop's manager, Stephen Bailey, who told the BBC, "We got to the last one and, as soon as I heard it, I thought, 'Oh God, that's not Cilla Black, it's Paul McCartney'…I was shaking with excitement and speechless."

Bailey added, "Apart from a few crackles, which you get with acetates, the quality is fine. It's a wonderful recording…I can't think of finding anything better unless I discover there is a sixth Beatle."

Including fees, the acetate's buyer paid a total of 21,060 pounds, or about $27,600, for the disc. You can listen to a 20-second clip of the tune at BeatlesAuction.co.uk.

Art Zelin/Getty ImagesFor the ninth time since his incarceration for the December 8, 1980 murder of John Lennon, Mark David Chapman has been denied parole.

The New York State Board of Parole announced its decision on Monday following an interview this past Wednesday with the 61-year-old Chapman, held at the Wende Correctional Facility in Alden, New York.

The board members noted in their decision, "In spite of many favorable factors, we find all to be outweighed by the premeditated and celebrity-seeking nature of the crime. From our interview and review of your records, we find that your release would be incompatible with the welfare of society and would so deprecate that seriousness of the crime as to undermine respect for the law. Accordingly, we deny your release to supervision in the community."

The parole board also explained that in denying Chapman's request, it considered such factors as his efforts to rehabilitate and educate himself, his disciplinary record, his accomplishments while incarcerated, and his lack of prior criminal history.

Chapman was sentenced in 1981 to 20 years to life for Lennon's murder and was first eligible for parole on December 4, 2000.  His next parole hearing is scheduled for August 2018.

Credit: Henry Diltz"The City," from David Crosby's forthcoming solo album, Lighthouse, has premiered on YouTube. The tune, which the folk-rock legend co-wrote with his main Lighthouse collaborator and co-producer, Michael League of the modern-jazz collective Snarky Puppy, pays tribute to that tough and multifaceted metropolis of New York City.

Crosby compares New York to a woman with whom he has a complicated relationship. In a new promo video posted on his official Twitter feed and Facebook page, the singer/songwriter explains that it was League who came up with the song's concept.

"Michael said, 'I want to write a song about New York City' -- which we both love -- 'as a woman,'" recalls Crosby. "And he said, 'Give me images.'"

In response, David says he came up with, "Damaged and lean, kind of mean, got a weird sense of humor."

In the tune's chorus, Crosby sings, "Like a wind, like a flame/She plays by the rules of her own game/She can't lose, you can't win/All you can do is your best to stay in."

"The City" combines acoustic folk elements with a funky, driving rhythm, while also showcasing some layered harmony vocals. It features Crosby on vocals, acoustic guitar and guitar percussion, while League contributes vocals; bass; and acoustic, baritone acoustic and electric guitars. Snarky Puppy keyboardist Cory Henry also lends his talents to the track.

Lighthouse will be released October 21. Crosby, meanwhile, recently launched a North American solo tour that's mapped out through a September 15 concert in Vancouver, Canada. Check out his upcoming dates at DavidCrosby.com.

Bettman/Getty ImagesToday marks the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' final official concert, which took place August 29, 1966, at San Francisco's Candlestick Park. Drained by the grind of touring and the craziness it entailed, the Fab Four had decided to retire from the road after their 1966 North American summer trek to focus on studio work and other interests.

One of the acts opening for The Beatles during the tour, including the Candlestick Park show, was the garage-rock band The Remains. Remains frontman Barry Tashian recalls that the noise made by the ardent Fab Four fans generally made it difficult to hear anything during the performances.

"The [crowd] sounded like a jet or a rocket ship taking off. Just this tremendous rush of air," Tashian tells ABC Radio. "It just was deafening."

Barry also remembers that there were some quiet moments during The Beatles' shows where their talent as a live outfit shone through.

"No doubt about it, they were just a real good bar band kind of thing," he explains to ABC Radio.

Meanwhile, Tashian says he had no clue that the Candlestick Park concert was to be The Beatles' last, although he was aware that the grind of touring was weighing on the band.

"I could tell that they wanted to…get it done and go home," Barry maintains. "As far as never touring again, that's another story." 

The Beatles played 11 songs at Candlestick Park, including such newer tunes as "Day Tripper," "Paperback Writer" and "Yesterday," plus some select rock 'n' roll covers. According to BeatlesBible.com, tickets cost $6.50 and $4.50.

The only public concert the Fab Four played after the Candlestick concert was their famous unannounced show on the rooftop of the band's Apple headquarters in London on January 30, 1969.

Here's the set list of The Beatles' Candlestick Park concert:

"Rock and Roll Music"
"She's a Woman"
"If I Needed Someone"
"Day Tripper"
"Baby's in Black"
"I Feel Fine"
"Yesterday"
"I Wanna Be Your Man"
"Nowhere Man"
"Paperback Writer"
"Long Tall Sally"

VALERIE MACON/AFP/Getty ImagesJohn Fogerty is among the many artists paying tribute to popular Mexican singer-songwriter Juan Gabriel, who died Sunday at the age of 66.

Fogerty said in a statement that he was interested in collaborating with Gabriel, a six-time Grammy nominee who recorded a cover of the Creedence Clearwater Revival classic “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?” earlier this year.

"My heart is heavy and very sad today for Juan Gabriel has passed away," Fogerty said in a statement Sunday. "Juan is a legend in the world of Latin Music and someone that I truly admire.  He has written and recorded hundreds of beautiful songs and recently had recorded a wonderful version of my song 'Have You Ever Seen The Rain' that I love very much. 

"We had talked about performing this song together and I was looking forward to a new friendship with this amazingly talented man," Fogerty added.

Gabriel's hits included "Hasta Que Te Conoci" ("Until I Met You"), "Amor Eterno" ("Eternal Love") and "Querida" ("Dear").

He performed at the Forum in Inglewood, California, on Friday night and had been scheduled to perform in El Paso, Texas, Sunday night.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto tweeted Sunday, "I regret the death of Juan Gabriel, one of the great musical icons of our country. My condolences to his relatives and friends."

Stardog Records/Republic Records

Eddie Vedder, Jackson Browne, John Mellencamp and Lindsey Buckingham are among the artists featured on the official soundtrack to the Showtime series Roadies, which was just released digitally and will be available for purchase as a physical album on Friday, September 2. The record is made up almost entirely of new live performances by various artists, many of whom made cameo appearances on the show.

Music from the Showtime Original Series Roadies includes Vedder singing the 2003 Pearl Jam rarity "Man of the Hour," Buckingham performing his 1987 Fleetwood Mac hit "Big Love," Mellencamp singing his 2008 song "Longest Days" and Browne teaming up with alt-pop duo Lucius and Americana guitarist Greg Leisz for a rendition of Little Feat's "Willin'."

Other artists featured on the soundtrack include Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, My Morning Jacket, Robyn Hitchcock and Gary Clark Jr.

Roadies creator, writer and director Cameron Crowe explains, "Great care was taken that the songs chosen for each artist have another meaning, a thread to our story or characters. The only rule was: no lip-syncing to playback. Not even to live versions recorded in a previous take. These would be authentic live performances. Real performances. That's where the magic happens, for an audience and even a crew."

The finale of Roadies' debut season airs Sunday, August 28, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The episode will feature appearances by Browne, Vedder, Hitchcock, Lucius, Clark Jr., My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James and more.

Roadies, which stars Luke Wilson, Carla Gugino and Imogen Poots, takes a humorous look at a group of music-loving roadies and their lives working behind-the-scenes in the concert industry.

Here is the full track list of the Roadies soundtrack:

"I Wish I Was Sober (Roadies Remix)" -- Frightened Rabbit featuring Mike McCready
"Are You Satisfied?" (Live) -- Reignwolf
"Big Love" (Live) -- Lindsey Buckingham
"The First Time" -- My Morning Jacket
"Born Again Teen" (Live) -- Lucius
"Longest Days" (Live) -- John Mellencamp
"Feeling OK" (Live) -- Best Coast
"Simple Man" (Live) -- Machine Gun Kelly
