Top man: Bon Jovi Bon Jovi have once again topped Billboard’s rock rich list of annual earnings, raking in an estimated total of $29,436,801 in 2013. The band have topped the cash chart for three of the previous six years, and have never been far from the summit. Their return to the head of the list comes despite the absence of guitarist Richie Sambora following a dispute with frontman Jon Bon Jovi.
Moving on: Vinny Appice Kill Devil Hill have announced the departure of drummer Vinny Appice, who co-founded the band in 2011 with ex Pantera bassist Rex Brown and appeared on their first two albums. The sticksman has decided it’s time to focus on other things – including a new record by his Dio offshoot band Last In Line . Appice says in a statement: “It’s been a great musical adventure from the beginning, but the time has now come to go our separate ways and continue to make music that we love.” Brown comments: “We all have a lot of love and respect for Vinny. We wish him well – it’s been a blast.” The band’s new drummer is Johnny Kelly, known for stints with Type O Negative, Danzig and A Pale Horse Named Death. He admits: “I have some really big shoes to full, but I’m ready for that challenge.
Water damage: Ozzy Ozzy Osbourne’s Buckinghamshire mansion was among the homes badly damaged during England’s recent extreme weather, he’s revealed. Around 6000 homes were swamped by heavy rain during the wettest winter on record, with the average repair bill estimated at £30,000. But Osbourne and wife Sharon face a payout of ten times that sum – even though they won’t be allowed to start work until the end of the year.

Watching the new “Orphan Black” Season 2 trailer reminds us of when we watched season 1 and thought, “I wish this had more ass-kicking,” because it seems as though BBC America fashioned some device to read our brain waves and granted our wish. Season 2, indeed, looks to have 30 to 40 percent more ass-kicking (that’s just an estimate, mind you), and even more clone-y goodness to remind us of just how amazing the chameleon-like talents of the show’s star, Tatiana Maslany, really are. But enough of our prattling on. Watch the Season 2 trailer below and then agonize over the fact that you won’t be able to catch the premiere until April 18
Apology: Geoff Tate Geoff Tate has apologised to Queensryche fans for the way they discovered the details behind his dismissal from the band in 2012. He was fired following a series of dramatic episodes that demonstrated how relationships between him and his colleagues had broken down – including an onstage altercation in Brazil known as the “Operation Knifecrime” incident , although it was later confirmed no weapon had been involved. The battle over the band name went to court later in the year, with both parties citing previous examples of fall-outs to support their case. Scott Rockenfield, Eddie Jackson and Michael Wilton claimed Tate had been violent on a number of occasions and that he’d made a secret deal to work on a movie based on the band’s Operation: Mindcrime album without them.
Music can can be an sentimental scrapbook of sorts, highlighting life changing moments that reflect the heart of the artist who sings them. Take Francesca Battistelli, for example. Now three albums deep into her career, each project displays a detailed snapshot of her ever-evolving existence, and although she’s only been on the scene for about six years, there is far more to be said than one might think. Her debut, My Paper Heart, introduced us to this fresh faced singer/songwriter, and completely changed the game for females in the Christian music industry.
