The shoot­ing of a doc­u­men­tary film about Lynyrd Skynyrd has been halted due to a row over the in­volve­ment of a former mem­ber of the band. Skynyrd’s cur­rent gui­tarist Gary Ross­ing­ton and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of former mem­bers Ron­nie Van Zandt and Steve Gaines, who both per­ished in the 1977 ac­ci­dent, have sued Cleopa­tra En­ter­tain­ment, the mak­ers of Street Sur­vivor: The True Story Of The Lynyrd Skynyrd Plane Crash, for hir­ing the band’s former drum­mer Ar­timus Pyle as the story’s writer.

Mick Fleet­wood be­lieves that Fleet­wood Mac’s 2018 tour won’t be their swansong. “In my mind it isn’t [the fi­nal tour], and ev­ery­one in the band has de­cided that it’s not,” he tells Rolling Stone of the up­com­ing 18-month world tour.

The 50-year ca­reer of David Bowie (pic­tured) re­cently reached a ma­jor mile­stone with the late singer’s one bil­lionth stream on Spo­tify. Bowie’s Top 10 most streamed tracks are: Heroes, Let’s Dance, Space Od­dity, Life On Mars, Star­man, Rebel Rebel, Moon­age Day­dream, Changes, Ziggy Star­dust and, per­haps sur­pris­ingly, Mod­ern Love.

Jim Lea, the former Slade bassist, makes a per­sonal ap­pear­ance at the Robin 2 in Bil­ston on Novem­ber 5 for the first of­fi­cial show­ing of a DVD filmed at the same venue in 2002, ti­tled For One Night Only. Pro­ceeds will go to Can­cer Re­search UK and De­men­tia UK.
