Credit: Sean EvansFounding Pink Floyd bassist/singer Roger Waters has signed a long-term publishing agreement with BMG to represent the song catalog he amassed while he was a member of the famous U.K. rock band. The deal covers songs that Waters wrote beginning with the group's 1967 debut album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, and running through his last record with the band, 1983's The Final Cut.

Waters noted in a statement that BMG had supported him when he organized and performed at the Music Heals benefit show for wounded veterans last October in Washington, D.C., adding, "I'm very glad to be back in the same team."

Meanwhile, BMG CEO Hartwig Masuch says of the deal, "We are honored that Roger Waters has chosen BMG, the youngest of the big international music companies to represent his legendary and exquisite catalog. To win the endorsement and trust of one of the world's most successful songwriters is a significant milestone less than eight years after our launch."

Among the many classic songs Waters wrote or co-wrote for Pink Floyd are "Money," "Wish You Were Here," "Shine On You Crazy Diamond," "Another Brick in the Wall," "Hey You" and "Comfortably Numb."

Courtesy of Heritage AuctionsA blond lock of David Bowie's hair clipped from the late singer in 1983 fetched $18,750 at a memorabilia sale held over the weekend at Heritage Auctions in Beverly Hills. The winning bid was more than four times the expected sale price of $4,000.

The lock of hair was cut by and belonged to Wendy Farrier, who worked as the wig mistress at Madame Tussauds in London. Farrier clipped Bowie's hair so that she could replicate it for a wax statue that was displayed at the wax museum during the height of his popularity. Wendy, who was a big fan of the singer, held on to the hair snippet as a souvenir.

The winning bidder receives the lock, which is bound with blue thread, as well as a black-and-white photograph of Bowie standing next to Farrier and a letter of authenticity from Wendy.

"David Bowie changed music forever and fans are hungry for related precious objects that bring them closer to their favorite musician," said Heritage Auctions executive Margaret Barrett. "What brings you closer than a lock of hair?"

Part of the proceeds from the Bowie hair will be donated to the Soi Dog Foundation in Thailand, a charity that rescues and cares for stray dogs.

Among the other, rather morbid, items that were sold at the auction was a shirt stained with John Lennon's blood that was worn by an employee of the Dakota Hotel in New York City the night the ex-Beatles star was shot to death. The winning bid was $42,500.

Courtesy of Nate D. Sanders AuctionsThe Ludwig drum kit used in the recording of The Beatles' first single, "Love Me Do," in September 1962 is up for bid as part of a memorabilia auction that takes place this Thursday, June 30, at 5 p.m. PT. The kit originally belonged to session drummer Andy White, who was called in by producer George Martin's assistant Ron Richards to rerecord the track with the Fab Four while Ringo Starr played tambourine.

The version of "Love Me Do" featuring White, who died in November 2015 at the age of 85, wound up on The Beatles' debut U.K. album, 1963's Please Please Me, and also was released as a single in the U.S. in 1964. In addition, White played the kit on a rendition of "P.S. I Love You" that was recorded during the same session.

The drum set features the original bass drum, floor tom, tom-tom and snare, although the drumhead is new. The kit is being sold by current owner Clive Edwards, who studied drumming with a good friend of White's named Reg Weller. Weller purchased the drums for Edwards. The winning bidder also will receive a letter of authenticity from White's widow, Thea.

Bidding on the drum set starts at $150,000. The sale is being hosted Nate D. Sanders Auctions in Los Angeles, and bids also will be accepted online.

Noam Galai/WireImageJon Bon Jovi paid a special visit to his JBJ Soul Kitchen in Toms River, New Jersey, Saturday to give one unsuspecting fan the thrill of her life. Billboard reports the New Jersey rocker worked with the staff of his nonprofit community restaurant to set up a surprise meet-and-greet with Carol Cesario, a huge Bon Jovi fan who's suffering from stage 4 lung cancer.

Cesario's daughter, Rosie Skripkunis, wrote about the event on her Facebook page, saying, "Today my [mom's] dream came true! After loving Jon Bon Jovi for 30 years she finally met him. He invited our family to his restaurant for dinner and surprised her. He spent almost 2 hours hanging out with her and just chatting with my family."

Rosie added, "This has been one of the best days of our [family's] life. Seeing my mom this happy filled me with so much joy. I still can not believe this happened. Jon is [an] amazing human. We appreciate everything he did for our mom and for our family today <3."

Skripkunis also posted a video of Bon Jovi surprising her mother and a series photos from the day, including pictures of Jon posing with Cesario and various family members and a note he wrote to Carol.

According to Billboard, Bon Jovi also gave Cesario an autographed electric guitar and treated her to a private playback of his band's upcoming album, This House Is Not for Sale.

Bon Jovi has opened two JBJ Soul Kitchens in New Jersey in conjunction with his Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation charity. The restaurants have no prices listed on the menu and serve nutritious food to both paying and in-need customers. Diners can pay for their meal by volunteering at the eateries.

Loud & Proud RecordsTwisted Sister will be the focus of the first of a four-DVD Metal Meltdown series of concert performances by four legendary '80s-era hair bands. Metal Meltdown: Twisted Sister -- Live at the Hard Rock Casino Las Vegas will be issued July 22.

The Twisted Sister DVD will feature their May 30, 2015, concert at the Joint at Las Vegas' Hard Rock Casino -- a show dedicated to the memory of drummer A.J. Pero, who died suddenly two months earlier. The band dedicated the remainder of their 2015 shows to Pero as well, and announced that 2016 would be their 40th and final year of live performances. This concert marked the debut of former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy as Pero's fill-in.

The disc, including both DVD and Blu-ray discs and an audio CD, features the complete 90-minute concert, as well as Rockshow, a bonus documentary that takes fans through the band's four-decade ride from Long Island bar band to stardom, with exclusive interviews and an '80s photo gallery.

"The decision to continue performing all the summer shows in 2015, not to mention the concert that this performance celebrates, was in jeopardy over the days immediately following A.J.'s sudden death," guitarist Jay Jay French said. "We needed time to re-group and re-focus. Everyone was great."

He added, "In the end, I believe we did what A.J. would have wanted us to do, and Mike Portnoy was a very big part of that decision in both an emotional and artistic way. This performance captured herein just two months after A.J.'s death really was about our way to help memorialize the great A.J. Pero."

Other bands filmed in Las Vegas to be part of the Metal Meltdown series were Extreme, Skid Row and Great White.

Here's the complete song listing:

"What You Don't Know"
"The Kids Are Back"
"Stay Hungry"
"The Beast"
"Shoot 'Em Down"
"You Can't Stop Rock 'n' Roll"
"I Believe in Rock 'n' Roll"
"Under the Blade"
"I Am (I'm Me)"
"We're Not Gonna Take It"
"The Fire Still Burns"
"The Price"
"Burn in Hell"
A.J. Pero Tribute
"I Wanna Rock"

Credit: Simon WhiteheadEric Clapton has debuted the official video for his new cover of blues great Robert Johnson's "Stones in My Passway," which appears on his latest studio album, "I Still Do." The black-and-white clip features Clapton and members of his backing band working on the tune in the studio.

You can watch the video at WheresEric.com and at Clapton's official YouTube channel.

In a new Guitar World interview, Clapton reveals that he's always found "Stones in My Passway" difficult to play, because it features a guitar melody that's at odds with a coinciding vocal melody.

"There's a [guitar] phrase [Johnson] plays underneath his vocal that I can't do," Eric admits. "I can't sing it and play that phrase, and I will never do it, I don't think. I think I've tried all my life to figure out how to do that -- because the time signature of the singing is one way and the playing is another."

I Still Do debuted last month at #6 on the Billboard 200. In addition to "Stones in My Passway," the 12-track collection features a number of original Clapton compositions and renditions of Bob Dylan's "I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine" and the standard "I'll Be Seeing You." The album marks the first time Clapton has worked with acclaimed producer Glyn Johns since 1977's multi-platinum Slowhand.

Dot RecordsAerosmith frontman Steven Tyler unveiled his new single, "We're All Somebody from Somewhere," during an appearance Friday morning on NBC's Today show. He also sang "Cryin'" and the Janis Joplin smash "Piece of My Heart."

The new single, which was released Friday, is the title cut from his debut solo album, a country-flavored effort due out July 15. The album's track listing also was unveiled Friday. Twelve of the 15 songs were co-written by Tyler; in addition, there's a remake of Aerosmith's "Janie's Got a Gun" and the cover of "Piece of My Heart.

Sitting down with Today's Matt Lauer, Tyler explained that when Big Machine Label Group head Scott Borchetta approached him about doing an album, he said, "I want to do a country record with covers of Everly Brothers, but unfortunately, so many people did. But then…I went down and did a bunch of award things [in Nashville], fell in love with the town, and the rest is history."

New York native Tyler, 68, said his introduction to country came when he was 11 and he pulled in a radio station in Fort Wayne, Indiana, that was playing "The Battle of New Orleans," Johnny Horton's1959 hit. "The B-side was 'All for the Love of a Girl,' and it was the first time I got all those feelings inside for music, and just in touch in myself with, in a sexual way, in a life-giving way," Tyler recalled "and then I heard The Everly Brothers, and their harmonies, and it was just incredible."

He also explained that Aerosmith had its brush with country already: "We would do all kinds of stuff like 'Cryin'.' That's country; we wrote that with Taylor Rhodes in Nashville…So it was already there. It wasn't a stretch."

Here's the full track list of the new album:

"My Own Worst Enemy"
"We're All Somebody from Somewhere"
"Hold On (Won’t Let Go)"
"It Ain't Easy"
"Love Is Your Name
"I Make My Own Sunshine"
"Gypsy Girl"
"Somebody New"
"Only Heaven"
"The Good, the Bad, the Ugly & Me"
"Red, White & You"
"Sweet Louisiana"
"What Am I Doin' Right?"
"Janie’s Got a Gun"
"Piece of My Heart"

Erika Goldring/Getty ImagesParliament-Funkadelic keyboard player Bernie Worrell has died at age 72 after a battle with lung cancer. 

Worrell's death was announced Friday on his Facebook page -- the posting, presumably by his wife, who'd been keeping fans updated about his health, read: "AT 11:54, June 24, 2016, Bernie transitioned Home to The Great Spirit. Rest in peace, my love -- you definitely made the world a better place. Till we meet again, vaya con Dios."

The keyboard virtuoso co-wrote many of P-Funk's classic songs, and also toured extensively with Talking Heads in the 1980s, appearing in that band's 1984 film Stop Making Sense.  Worrell is perhaps most famous for the bass synthesizer lick that powered the 1978 Parliament smash "Flash Light."  His work is also prominent in "Mothership Connection (Star Child)," "Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof Off the Sucker)" and "Aqua Boogie," among the best known and most heavily sampled songs in P-Funk's catalog.

Worrell also has played with a number of artists in a variety of genres, including Les Claypool of Primus, Mos Def, Prince Paul, Nona Hendryx, Reggie Watts and others.  In 2011, he toured with fellow P-Funk alum Bootsy Collins.  Last year, he appeared in the Meryl Streep film Ricki and the Flash, directed by Jonathan Demme, who also directed Stop Making Sense.

Earlier this year, Hendryx organized a benefit for Worrell in New York City, which featured P-Funk mastermind George Clinton, Collins, Streep, Questlove, Living Colour and the Black Rock Coalition Orchestra.

Worrell was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997, along with 15 other members of Parliament-Funkadelic.

Hollywood RecordsLate Queen frontman Freddie Mercury would have turned 70 in September.  To coincide with the milestone, a special vinyl box set gathering all of the legendary singer's solo singles is set to be released. Freddie Mercury: Messenger of the Gods -- The Singles features 13 seven-inch discs, each one pressed on a different color vinyl.

The collection spans from Mercury's 1973 debut solo single, a cover of The Beach Boys' "I Can Hear Music" issued under the moniker Larry Lurex, through a posthumous, U.K.-chart-topping 1993 remix of his 1985 tune, "Living on My Own."

Mercury's solo releases found the famed singer exploring various genres, including pop-rock, disco, electronic-dance music and opera. While his singles weren't successful in the U.S., many of them were big hits in the U.K. and other European countries.

Warner Bros. Records Red Hot Chili Peppers' new album, The Getaway, will be competing against Drake for the #1 spot on next week's Billboard 200. Both The Getaway and the singer/rapper's album Views are on pace to move an estimated 110,000 to 120,000 equivalent album units each.

If The Getaway were to debut on top of the Billboard 200, it will give Anthony Kiedis and company their second chart-topping album, following their 2006 double-disc opus Stadium Arcadium. The Chili Peppers' last album, 2011's I'm with You, peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200.

The Getaway features the lead single "Dark Necessities," which currently sits in the top three on both Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs and Alternative Songs charts.

Next month, Red Hot Chili Peppers will headline the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago.

Reprise RecordsOn his new album, Earth, Neil Young took some recent concert performances and enhanced them with animal noises, other natural sounds and eerily sweet backing vocals to create a sonic commentary on the state of our planet.

"This is something I always wanted to do, a live record that is like a living record where everybody comes and people are there and creatures are there from everywhere," Young tells ABC Radio. "It's just a crazy hippie dream, I guess."

The 70-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer says the concept behind Earth emerged as he was piecing together the 13-track album, which was culled from the best performances from a 25-show series he played with current backing band Promise of the Real. The track list features songs with pro-environmental and anti-corporate themes dating as far back as 1970's "After the Gold Rush" and also including several tunes from 2015's The Monsanto Years.

Young maintains that the idea to add the various animal noises to the live recordings came to him because the sound of concert audiences often reminds him of different animals. Neil positioned the sound of the creatures most prominently between songs, which he says gave him "the feeling of floating through space and time, going to different places and being able to hear what's happening on Earth and then returning to an arena where there is music."

The other interesting element of Earth album is the aforementioned backing singers, which Young says represent the point of view of the corporation lulling the listener into a false sense of security.

"There's a lot of misleading information out there that is in the guise of perfection and soothing sounds," Neil points out, "and a little bit distracting or disarming when considered with the surrounding things."

Earth hits stores today.
