Musical instruments used by U2, Paul McCartney, Elton John and several other music stars are set to be auctioned off to benefit the Music Rising charity.

The Edge and Ezrin have collected guitars and other musical instruments from McCartney, Rush, Radiohead, Pearl Jam, Joe Walsh, Green Day, Ron Wood, Dave Grohl, Tom Morello, Noel Gallagher, Joan Jett, and many others.

The auction, titled "Guitars Icons: A Musical Instrument Auction to Benefit Music Rising," is set to take place on December 11 at Van Eaton Galleries in Los Angeles.

The auction will see a 2005 Limited Edition Gibson Les Paul Music Rising guitar that the Edge played during "One" on the Joshua Tree tours of 2017 and 2019 along with many other shows.

A custom signature Fender Stratocaster that Edge used on "Bad" and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" in 2017 and 2019, Adam Clayton's Fender Standard Precision Bass he used on "A Sort of Homecoming," "Bullet The Blue Sky," "Running to Stand Still" and "One Tree Hill" in 2017, and Bono's Custom Gibson ES-175 Electric Guitar he played throughout the Zoo TV tour on "The Fly" and "Angel of Harlem," will also come under the hammer.

Midnight Oil Announce New Album 'Resist,' Final Tour

Midnight Oil Announce New Album 'Resist,' Final Tour

Australian rock band Midnight Oil recently announced a new album and a Farewell Tour.

Midnight Oil announced that a chapter of their half-a-century long career will come to a memorable close next year with the release of a 12-song LP they recorded with late bass player Bones Hillman and a series of big gigs. Both are titled Resist.

The band also announced that this will be their final concert tour while making it clear that this does not mean the end of the Oils.

Each of the members will continue their own projects over the years ahead. They also remain very open to recording new music together in the future and supporting causes in which they believe.

The tour will see them perform classic Midnight Oil songs from across their repertoire while also showcasing some "urgent new works."

Resist engages with the issues of today and tomorrow - like the lead single "Rising Seas," which tackles the climate crisis in typically uncompromising fashion.

The album pre-order and Australasian tickets will go on-sale beginning November 30.

Midnight Oil said they are also planning a handful of international concerts, subject to Covid restrictions.

Drummer Rob Hirst says, "If I look back, I see a blur of familiar names and faces: Jim, Pete, Martin, Bear and me, slamming loud prog-pop in a Chatswood garage; Giffo, magnificent, rocking back and forth at his first Royal Antler gig; Bonesy, headphones on, singing, lounging on the deck learning our catalogue."

"I see our managers in their offices; our folks-in-the-engine-room; our wives and trusted friends, and the tiny faces of the 'Baby Oils'; and the first two rows of a thousand gigs: Midnight Oil fans, pumping, jumping, singing louder than the band...But I don't look back," he added.

Resist will be Midnight Oil's 15th studio album.

A Midnight Oil special performance on "The Sound" is set to air on Sunday at 5:30 pm on ABC TV or ABC iview.

Don McClean Reacts To Taylor Swift Breaking Record For Longest Billboard Hot 100 No. 1

Don McClean Reacts To Taylor Swift Breaking Record For Longest Billboard Hot 100 No. 1

Don McLean has graciously reacted to Taylor Swift breaking his long-held record for the longest song to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The 10-minute 13 second version of "All Too Well (Taylor's Version)" recently broke the record held by McLean's 8 minute and 42 seconds-long song "American Pie" since 1972.

"Let's face it, nobody ever wants to lose that #1 spot, but if I had to lose it to somebody, I sure am glad it was another great singer/songwriter such as Taylor," McLean said in a statement posted on social media.

"There is something to be said for a great song that has staying power. 'American Pie' remained on top for 50 years and now Taylor Swift has unseated such a historic piece of artistry," he told Billboard.

Upon breaking the nearly 50-year record, an elated Taylor shared her joy with her fans on Twitter on Monday.

"I'm so proud of this song and the memories I have with you guys because of it. You truly chose this one and now you did THIS?! I'm floored. A ten minute song is at the top of the Hot 100," the singer-songwriter tweeted.

Whitesnake have parted ways with long-time bassist Michael Devin ahead of their farewell tour and replaced him with Irish bassist Tanya O'Callaghan.

"Whitesnake & bassist Michael Devin have decided to go their separate ways after an amazingly successful decade together...," the British rock band announced on social media.

Whitesnake frontman David Coverdale recalled that along with numerous tours, Devin applied his talent to studio albums Forevermore, The Purple Album and Flesh & Blood.

Devin is leaving Whitesnake after a decade with the group.

In an update a couple of days later, Whitesnake announced the replacement for Devin.

"A whirling dervish of a performer whom we feel will bring a fresh, new, exciting musicality & welcome energy to the band, both in the studio & onstage. here she is. Irish born & bred. the one & only. Tanya O'Callaghan," Coverdale said in a welcome note, describing the new bassist as "The Irish Tornado."

"It's been a wild ride and just when I thought it couldn't get any better, who calls, only feckin' WHITESNAKE!" she added. "And the best part, to step into the snake shoes of my bass brothers Rudy Sarzo, Tony Franklin Neil Murray and Michael Devin ... are you kidding me...what a f#*king honor beyond belief!!! My heart is exploding."

O'Callaghan is an established freelance bassist, speaker and activist, touring and guesting on pop, funk, R&B and blues projects with various bands.

Foo Fighters Share 'Love Dies Young' Video Starring Jason Sudeikis

Foo Fighters recently shared a new music video for "Love Dies Young" starring Jason Sudeikis.

In the music video, Sudeikis plays a synchronized swimming coach. He gives a pep talk to five swimmers in the start of the video, who are later revealed to be the band's members. Sudeikis sports a blonde wig and mustache and an American flag jacket.

"How lucky are we? We get to do something that we love, that we are good at. How lucky are we?" Sudeikis' character says in a locker room. "You get to do your synchro, I get to coach you. I get to coach champions. Potential champions."

Sudeikis then starts yelling at his team, shouting, "This is the most important competition of your lives. I yell at you because I love you. You listen to me because you love me."

"Is this a weird dynamic? Yeah sure, from the outside - to losers. I picked you up out of the water by the scruffs of your necks, and I looked at you and I said, 'You will be a champion!' Or not," he adds before the opening guitar riff to "Love Dies Young" starts playing.

"Love Dies Young" appears on Foo Fighters' 10th studio album Medicine At Midnight, which dropped in February.

The Human League Celebrate 40th Anniversary Of 'Don't You Want Me' With New Remix

The Human League Celebrate 40th Anniversary Of 'Don't You Want Me' With New Remix

The Human League have released a remix of their classic hit "Don't You Want Me" in celebration of the track's 40th anniversary.

The English trio teamed up with German DJ and producer Purple Disco Machine for the revamped version of the 80's hit.

"I can't say how happy I am with the Purple Disco Machine remix of 'Don't You Want Me,' because my favorite pop music ever is Disco," explained The Human League's lead singer Phil Oakey.

"I've been following Tino Schmidt for a few years, both for his original songs and his terrific remixes," he continued. "Although I'm happy with those remixes that are a completely alternate take to the original I'm really knocked out that Tino's mix is the first since the original that totally understands the spirit and enhances it while bringing our track right up to date, standing powerfully up against my favorite contemporary dance tunes."

"And now I'm going to listen to it again, as loud as the neighbors will stand!" "I am absolutely honored to remix 'Don't You Want Me,'" added Purple Disco Machine. "It is quite simply one of the best records ever made and I've been desperate to play a version in my DJ sets for years."

"Don't You Want Me" was released on November 27, 1981 as the fourth single from the band's third studio album Dare. The song turned out to be the group's most popular and most commercially successful single.

It was the biggest selling U.K. single of 1981, that year's Christmas No. 1, and has since sold over 1.56 million copies in the U.K., making it the 23rd-most successful single in U.K. Singles Chart history.

It also topped the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S. on July 3, 1982, where it stayed for three weeks.
