Singer Bryan Adams Apologizes For His Anti-China Coronavirus Comments

Bryan Adams is apologizing for comments he made on Instagram about the origins of the coronavirus. The 60-year-old Canadian singer shared a video of himself performing his 1983 song “Cuts Like a Knife” along with a harsh caption that seemingly had Adams blaming China for the pandemic.

“Thanks to some f—ing bat eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy bastards, the whole world is now on hold, not to mention the thousands that have suffered or died from this virus,” he wrote. “My message to them other than ‘thanks a f—ing lot’ is go vegan.”

Adams is one of several vegans who have tried to blame the pandemic on meat-eating, and though the People for the Ethical Treatments of Animals (PETA) released a statement in support of Adams, his comments prompted plenty of online backlash.  Subsequently, Adams posted another video of himself performing “Into the Fire,” and apologized to those who were offended by his original post. “Apologies to any and all that took offense to my posting yesterday,” he wrote. “No excuse, I just wanted to have a rant about the horrible animal cruelty in these wet-markets being the possible source of the virus, and promote veganism. I have love for all people and my thoughts are with everyone dealing with this pandemic around the world.”

Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson Reveals He Has ‘Incurable Lung Disease’

Jethro Tull legend Ian Anderson has revealed that he has COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), which he says in an “an incurable lung disease”. Anderson shared the news from his appearance on this week’s episode of The Big Interview on AXS TV.

He shared, “I’m going to tell you something I’ve never told anybody in public before, I am suffering from an incurable lung disease which I was diagnosed with a couple of years back.

“I do struggle. I have what are called exacerbations, periods when I get an infection that turns into severe bronchitis and I have maybe two or three weeks when it’s really a tough job to go out there on stage and play.

“Fingers crossed, I’ve gone 18 months now without an exacerbation and I’m on medication. If I’m kept in a reasonably pollution-free environment in terms of air quality, I do okay. But my days are numbered. It’s not yet at the point that it affects my day to day life, I can still run for the bus.”

Ian went on to describe the disease. Saying that it best known as “COPD, where you lose some of the ability of your lungs to give you enough oxygen. I spend 50 years of my life on stage among those wretched things that I call smoke machines.

“Today, they’re politely referred to as hazers, as if they’re somehow innocent and not damaging to you lungs. I really do believe that’s a very significant part of the problem I have.”

Disney and Lin-Manuel Miranda announced that the filmed version of the original Broadway production of Hamilton will be premiering on Disney+ on July 3rd.  Disney is “fast-tracking” the premiere, which was scheduled to be a theatrical release in October 2021, due to “social distancing” measures brought about by the global COVID-19 pandemic which has changed the original plan.

The story is inspired by the 2004 autobiography by Ron Chernow, premiering Off-Broadway at the Public Theater in February 2015, then debuting on Broadway in August of the same year. Hamilton would go on to win 11 Tony Awards, as well as the Pulitzer Prize in Drama. 

The version which will air on Disney+ will be of the Original Broadway Cast; their performance was filmed at the Richard Rogers Theatre in June 2016. The cast includes Miranda as Alexander Hamilton; Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson; Renée Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler; Leslie Odom, Jr. as Aaron Burr; Christopher Jackson as George Washington; Jonathan Groff as King George; Phillipa Soo as Eliza Hamilton; and Jasmine Cephas Jones as Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds; Okieriete Onaodowan as Hercules Mulligan/James Madison; and Anthony Ramos as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton.

Nickelback Drummer Daniel Adair Recovering From Surgery

Nickelback shared the news last week that drummer Daniel Adair has been spending his time during the Covid-19 shutdown recovering from surgery for radial tunnel syndrome. Adair wrote in a tweet shared by the band, “I’ve been off the socials for a bit and thought I should give everybody an update. Over the past several years I have been experiencing increased difficulty with control in my right hand on the drums. After seeing many teachers/specialists and physicians, one of them finally diagnosed the cause.

“Seems I had a pinched nerve in my forearm which caused some of my muscles not to activate, making my wrist twist in a mechanically inaccurate motion. It’s called Radial Tunnel Syndrome and he said it was pretty rare. Don’t know what the cause is, there was no pain or damage.

“So luckily I got minor surgery right before the Covid outbreak happened. They just cut some muscle away and let the nerve breath again. I’ve healed fine and am basically learning how to use my right hand! It’s very exciting though, it’s amazing what one nerve can change. So, personally it’s a great time for me to be in isolation and get my chops together.

He ended with, “Hope everybody is well out there!”

Shinedown’s Brent Smith Clarifies Comments On Summer Tour

Shinedown frontman Brent Smith has released a statement clarifying comments he made in a recent interview regarding the status of the band’s upcoming tour this summer. Smith stated that Shinedown is “not backing off” the group’s scheduled tour, currently set to launch July 31.

“Obviously, our number-one priority is the safety of the public, but we also want the public to know something from us to all of them out there: We are not afraid to play for you,” Smith said. “We wanna do everything safely and we wanna go by the professionals in the medical community and what we’re gonna need to do,” he added. “But you can’t stay inside forever.”

However Smith says that his quotes were “misconstrued..in the midst of trying to stay positive in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic,” adding, “We’d like you all to know that while we can’t wait to play for you and see all of you on the road again, we will only do so when it’s safe,” Smith writes. “The health and wellness of our fans is what’s most important and something we take very seriously.”

“We’ll be ready to perform for you when the time is right,” he adds. “In the meantime, I encourage everyone to take this time to focus on staying healthy mind, body, and spirit, so that when we are able to come back together, we are all the better for this time apart. Stay strong and optimistic — we will get through this together.”
