New Jersey boys lead Hall of Fame fan vote

Bon Jovi have come out top in the fan vote to help decide who will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame next year.

They beat the Moody Blues, Dire Straits, The Cars and Judas Priest.

All five bands will now appear on a single ballot that will be included in the voting pool of the Rock Hall's regular voters, consisting of artists, music historians and music industry insiders.

Since the fan vote was created in 2013, the top vote winner has always gone on to be inducted. Those artists are Rush, Kiss, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Chicago and Journey.

The top overall vote winners will be announced later this month, with the induction ceremony taking place on April 14.

Neil Young and old

Neil Young has launched his online archive service which features almost every piece of media he's ever recorded.

He announced his plans earlier this year, and it's now live and free, until the end of June.

He's also released a video giving fans a walkthrough about how the site can be navigated and what they can find while exploring it.

Neil's catalogue goes back to 1962 when he appeared on a song called The Sultan with the band The Squires.

His newest band, Neil Young And Promise Of The Real released their latest album The Visitor in November.

Eric makes Hyde Park return

Eric Clapton will headline next year's British Summer Time Festival in London's Hyde Park.

49 years on from his debut there with Blind Faith, Eric will grace the Great Oak Stage on Sunday the 8th July in what will be his only UK festival appearance of the year.

Joining him on the bill is guitar legend Carlos Santana, Eric's former Blind Faith band mate Steve Winwood and blues-rock guitarist Gary Clark Jr.

Eric's headline slot was teased when 'Clapton Is God' graffiti started cropping up at various locations in London.

You can't resist the Manics

Manic Street Preachers will release their 13th album Resistance Is Futile in April before embarking on a UK arena tour.

It's the follow-up to 2014's Futerology and will come out in April next year.

The following month they'll play a number of arena gigs, including the Leeds Arena on the second of May.

The band say it's taken them a while to start the album but now it's come together really quickly and they're looking forward to getting back out on the road.
