Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Gary Rossington recovering from emergency heart surgery

Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Gary Rossington underwent emergency heart surgery last week and is at home recovering for the procedure.

According to a social media post from the band: “Our thoughts and prayers are with Gary Rossington as he recovers from emergency heart surgery. Gary is home resting and recovering with his family at home. He wants everyone to know he is doing good and expects a full recovery. After this past year, the country being shut down and everything we have all been thru, The Rossington’s encouraged the band to go perform in his absence. Music is a powerful healer! We all felt playing the shows and bringing the music to y’all was a better option than cancelling the performances. We wish Gary a speedy recovery and we will see the Skynyrd Nation very soon! Please do us a favor and say some prayers for the Rossington family and if you would like to leave him a (positive) message please do! He will look forward to reading them!”

ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill passes away at age 72

Dusty Hill, the longtime bassist for rock band ZZ Top, died today in his sleep at home in Houston. He was 72. Hill had recently suffered a hip injury that prompted his departure from the band’s 021-22 tour of North America, which was set to include a Las Vegas residency.

Hill’s passing was announced by bandmates Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard in an Instagram post: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’  You will be missed greatly, amigo. Frank & Billy”

ZZ Top was formed in 1969 in Houston, with Hill playing alongside guitarist Gibbons and drummer Beard. Long considered the rock band with the longest-tenured original lineup, ZZ Top released 15 studio albums during its career — including half live/half-studio album Fandango! — selling more than 25 million records in the U.S. alone. Seven of their LPs, including two hits compilations, are platinum or multiplatinum, with four others going gold. The group was also featured in the 2019 documentary ‘ZZ Top: That Little Ol’ Band from Texas,’ which scored a Grammy nom for Best Music Film.

Heather Locklear to star in new Lifetime movie chronicling Kristine Carlson’s life, produced by Meghan McCain

Heather Locklear will star in a Lifetime movie based on the life of author Kristine Carlson, executive produced by Meghan McCain. Locklear, 59, and McCain, 36, are teaming for the network’s upcoming movie “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff: The Kristine Carlson Story.”

The biopic tells the story of Kristine Carlson, who co-authored several titles of her late husband Dr. Richard Carlson’s best-selling book series “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff.” After Richard dies suddenly, Kristine struggles to cope with overwhelming grief and raising her two children alone, while dealing with the self-help empire he left behind. The New York Times best-selling book series “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff” was first published in 1997, and has sold over 25 million copies. The inspirational nine-book series served as a guide to help readers to put difficult challenges into perspective and “keep the little things from taking over your life.”

This is Locklear’s first acting role since appearing in an episode of ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat” in 2017. It is also McCain’s first project since announcing she was leaving “The View” earlier this month. “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff: The Kristine Carlson Story” is scheduled to begin shooting shortly in Nashville, Tennessee, and premiere on Lifetime later this year.

Kelly Ripa to release her first book of personal essays in 2022

Kelly Ripa will release her first book, titled ‘Live Wire,’ in 2022. Described as a book of Ripa’s personal essays, Live Wire has the 50-year-old Ripa exploring “childhood, motherhood, marriage, her career, and the intersection of all the above — putting her thoughtfulness, assertiveness and deep understanding of the dynamics of gender and power on full display.”

The ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ co-host — who shares sons Michael, 24, and Joaquin, 18, and daughter Lola, 20, with husband Mark Consuelos — will show readers “what really makes her tick.” A book description reads: “As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment.)  Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.”

Live Wire is available for pre-order now.
