Jimmy Page Responds to Led Zeppelin Glastonbury Rumors

Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis said earlier this year that he was “sure” Led Zeppelin would play his festival one day. Now, guitarist Jimmy Page has responded to his comments and addressed the chances of the band headlining in the coming years when talking with BBC Radio 6 Music host Shaun Keaveny.

“I haven’t heard about anything since the 2007 O2 gig, but you never know do you,” said Page. “You never know what’s going to happen tomorrow, do you?” The band has carved a spot in music history as one of the most important rock bands not just for …

‘Gremlins’ Reboot Allegedly Being Fast-Tracked At Warner Bros.

There have been rumors circling the net in regards to a continuation of the Gremlins franchise – be it as a reboot or sequel – for close to a decade. Now, according to a post on AICN, the project is on the fast-track towards production at Warner Bros.

That’s right, folks. A Gremlins reboot is allegedly being planned and rushed towards the box office as we speak. No director or casting information has been revealed, but last year Warner Bros. did bring on Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg to produce.

Joe Dante, the director of the original Gremlins, …

“Last night, Adam Jones, in a private conversation with fans attending the Portland Tool concert, joked that the band’s new album was not only finished but

Holy Sh!t: Comedy Icon Andy Kaufman May Still Be Alive

This is without a doubt the strangest story you will hear all week. I’ll try to keep it brief, but just know there is a lot of ground that needs to be covered if you ever hope to understand the living embodiment of comedy madness that was (or is) Andy Kaufman.

As far as most people are concerned, comedian Andy Kaufman died in 1984 following a battle with lung cancer. You may remember this from the film Man On The Moon, which found Jim Carrey portraying Kaufman throughout his most famous years. What you might also recall is that …

Keane Frontman Denies Break Up Rumors, Says Band Will Be Taking ‘A Bit Of Time Out’ From Being Together

What we have here is a classic case of publication versus the artist. One thinks a quote meant the end of one of the UK’s most notable pop outfits in recent memory, while the other couldn’t disagree more. Which is right? Let’s find out.

On Sunday (October 20), The Sun reported that Keane would soon be breaking up after 16 years so singer Tom Chaplin could make a solo album and main songwriter Tim Rice-Oxley could focus on penning hits for other artists. We didn’t run the story because at the time The Sun had no direct quotes or confirmation …

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Denies Rumors That He’s Vying For Ant-Man Role

Yes, there are more superhero movies in the works, and one that you might not have known (unless you are nerdy like we are here at UTG) that an Ant-Man movie is set to be released in 2015. Right now Marvel is working on casting some of the roles in the film, including the main man himself, Ant-Man. According to an update by Variety, the two front runners for the role are Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd. They also indicated there’s a remote possibility that someone else could snatch up the role, but these two are supposedly the favorites.…

System Of A Down Working On A New Album?

Alternative metal Armenian band System of a Down haven’t released new material since 2005′s Hypnotize, and the years since have seen both a reunion and some in fighting about new material. However, as a new video shows, the band told the crowd at a show in Los Angeles on July 29 that “Next time we come back here, we’ll have a new fucking album.” While this still hasn’t been explained further (maybe they won’t come back to Los Angeles until 2026?), it does seem to imply that the band are working on a new record.

Ronnie Radke Says Falling In Reverse Are Not Breaking Up

Rumors have been flying that failed rapper Ronnie Radke (OK, so that’s not what he is, but did anyone actually click the link to this article because they actually like his work as a musician? Alright, then) had walked out on his band, Falling In Reverse. His wife denied this, but the singer had not commented on the matter officially until today, when he did in an exclusive with Alternative Press.

Radke admits he has an anger problem and is an artist, so says that’s why “(he’s) crazy.” In all, it seems like a very remorseless …

RUMOR: Harrison Ford Confirmed for Star Wars: Episode VII

Well now that we have a director confirmed, it’s time for an onslaught of casting rumors. Latino Review (who all things considered is a relatively trustworthy source) has announced that director J.J. Abrams has confirmed Harrison Ford to reprise his role as Han Solo in the next installment in the Stars Wars series.

Now, I know most Star Wars fans are hyperventilating, and I just caught my breath too. But until I hear it directly from Disney themselves, I’m going to take every rumor with a huge grain of salt. However this casting rumor isn’t totally unreasonable. Harrison Ford has …

Movie Sequel Round-Up: Prometheus, X-Men: First Class, And Thor 2

It may seem that Hollywood is swiftly becoming naught but a hotbed of sequels and reboots, but three high-profile projects in the news this morning at least have real potential. First up, Ridley Scott has been hinting at a sequel to his recent sci-fi opus Prometheus, with sources pointing to a 2014 or 2015 release date. It seems Scott and studio Fox have been discussing the mooted follow-up with potential writers and aim to continue the story of Noomi Rapace’s Elizabeth Shaw and Michael Fassbender’s David (or rather, David’s disembodied head) and their journey across the skies.…

Blink-182 are NOT Breaking Up

Over the past couple of days rumors have been swirling that pop-punk icons, Blink-182, are heading once again towards splits-ville. Those rumors have been further stoked by the numerous injuries and illnesses faced by drummer Travis Barker and guitarist/singer Tom DeLonge over the past couple of months that have forced the pop-punk trio to cancel various shows.

Well, bassist/singer Mark Hoppus has shot down Blink-breakup rumors in a tweet this morning. Check out Hoppus’ tweet after the jump.…
