Authorities in Australia are once again looking for leads into the murder of AC/DC’s manager.  Crispin Dye was attacked in Sydney in the early morning hours of December 23rd, 1993, and died of his injuries two days later — on Christmas Day.  The investigation at the time resulted in no answers, and no charges were ever filed.  But the “Sydney Morning Herald” says New South Wales Police Minister Stuart Ayers hasn’t given up on the case.  He announced Wednesday that a 100-thousand-dollar reward is now being offered as an incentive for people “who know those responsible for Mr Dye’s death” to finally come forward.

Peter Rolfe, who runs a victims’ support group, approves of the move.  He says he’s hoping the money will yield results, so Crispin’s 91-year-old mother “can have some peace”  In addition to serving as AC/DC’s manager, Dye also worked with the group The Easybeats.  That band featured George Young — brother of AC/DC’s Angus and Malcolm Young — and is best known for the 1966 hit “Friday On My Mind.”

 

Soundgarden is the latest band to get the lullaby treatment from Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star, the company that specializes in soothing child-friendly arrangements of songs from famous rock acts. Lullaby Versions Of Soundgarden is due out on August 19th and features renditions of “Black Hole Sun,” “Fell On Black Days,” “Burden In My Hand,” “Spoonman” “Outshined,” “The Day I Tried To Live,” “Rusty Cage” and Temple Of The Dog‘s “Hunger Strike.”

  • Soundgarden’s breakthrough 1994 album, Superunknown, was reissued in June in a deluxe 20th anniversary edition featuring a remastered version of the album and plenty of bonus content like rarities, demo tracks and B-sides.
  • The band will help kick off the 2014 National Football League season by performing on Thursday, September 4th outside Seattle’s CenturyLink Field as part of the 2014 NFL Kickoff.
  • The free performance will take place before the game between the Seahawks and Green Bay Packers and will be seen on the 60-minute pre-game show airing from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. PT on NBC and the NFL network.
  • Soundgarden’s co-headlining summer trek with Nine Inch Nails stops in Austin, Texas on Thursday (August 14th) and will wind down on August 30th in Auburn, Washington.

 

Paul McCartney and Candlestick Park are coming full circle.  The San Francisco ballpark hosted The Beatles’ final concert back in 1966, and now the former Beatle will give the final concert to be staged at the venue.  The rock legend is expected to put on a spectacular performance at his sold-out show Thursday night.  A capacity crowd of 49-thousand fans will be treated to a dazzling display of music and fireworks, which will include more than 900 pyrotechnic effects.  And the event was all Paul’s idea.  Mayor Ed Lee tells the “San Francisco Chronicle” McCartney suggested the concert quite unexpectedly last year, after learning the city would be demolishing the stadium.  The event is one of the shows on Paul’s North American “Out There” tour.
