Gary Cherone's Hurtsmile Hurls "Retrogrenade," Issues New Single "Rock N' Roll Cliche"

Image Courtesy Hired Gun MediaThe rock and roll lifestyle is loaded with cliches -- so many that former Extreme and Van Halen vocalist Gary Cherone thought it was great subject matter for a song.

On October 7, Cherone and his band, Hurtsmile, will release their second full-length album, Retrogrenade, on Cherone's own label, Slipkid Records, and the newly issued first single, "Rock N' Roll Cliche," was inspired by the bands that shaped his own musical worldview, says Cherone.

"'Rock N’ Roll Cliche' can be summed up in the line 'got to give the people what they want,'" Cherone tells ABC News Radio. "It's a nod to the classic rock I grew up on. The opening riff just reminds me of that era and the lyrics hint at some of those influences."

The lyrics, "shake it up, shake for me baby," and "come on and join together with the band," with nods to Led Zeppelin and The Who, make their point against a driving guitar attack.

You can hear the song now streaming on the SoundCloud page of One Management.

Hurtsmile is the collaboration of Cherone with his brother/guitarist Mark Cherone of Flesh and SuperZero, as well as bassist Joe Pessia  and drummer Dana Spellman.

The band will play a special performance at an official record release party October 11 at the MIXX 350 nightclub in Boston, Massachusetts.

The track listing for Retrogrenade is below:

"Rock N’ Roll Cliche"
"Hello, I Must Be Going"
"Big Government"
"I Still Do"
"Sing a Song (My Mia)"
"Anymore (Don’t Want My Love)"
"Where Do We Go From Here"
"A Melody for You"
"Wonder What"
"Walk Away"
"Goodbye"
"Pump It Up"

The Pretty Reckless Makes Radio History

Jeff Lynne Hints at More Live ELO Shows

Photo: Martyn AtkinsAfter he and the band played their first show in 28 years in London, England Sunday night, Electric Light Orchestra frontman Jeff Lynne is causing some excitement by hinting he may be open to more shows.

The reclusive musician, joined by original ELO keyboardist Richard Tandy, took the stage at BBC Radio 2's Festival in a Day in Hyde Park, delighting the crowd with a 17-song set list that included "Turn to Stone," "Livin' Thing," "Evil Woman," "Don't Bring Me Down," and the lost gem "All Over the World," from the 1980 movie Xanadu, which starred Olivia Newton John.

According to NME, Lynne was in great spirits, remarking: "Wow, fantastic. It’s unbelievable this really. I haven’t done anything like this for so long, I can’t believe it.”  Later in the show, he clearly had his eye on the future, promising the crowd "I'll do this again."

The set wasn't drawn entirely from the ELO catalog.  Lynne also nodded to his other musical group, The Traveling Wilburys, with a performance of "Handle With Care," dedicating the song to the late Wilburys George Harrison and Roy Orbison.

Check out the set list from the weekend ELO show:

"All Over the World"
"Evil Woman"
"Ma Ma Ma Belle"
"Showdown"
"Livin' Thing"
"Strange Magic"
"10538 Overture"
"Can't Get It Out of My Head"
"Sweet Talkin' Woman"
"Turn to Stone"
"Steppin' Out"
"Handle with Care"
"Don't Bring Me Down"

Barbra Streisand Frustrated by Tabloid Rumors; Would Like to Sing with Rihanna & Adele 

ABC/Ida Mae AstuteOn her latest album, Partners, Barbra Streisand duets with some of the biggest male names in music, including John Legend, Billy Joel, Michael Buble, Stevie Wonder and the late Elvis Presley.  The main man in Streisand's life is, of course, her husband, actor James Brolin. Last July marked their 16th year of marriage, despite tabloid rumors claiming they're on the brink of divorce.

"My husband and I were in the supermarket the other day, we were holding hands and a guy behind us said 'Oh, you're back together?'" Streisand said on Tuesday's Good Morning America. "And I went -- well, my husband knew about this but he didn't tell me -- I said 'Well, when were we apart?' to this guy. And he says, 'Oh, I think, hmm hmm something or other,' and I said, 'Jim, why, what are they talking about?' He said, 'Well you know, the rags print this stuff.'"

"It's like, why do they have to make up stories? I don't get it," said Streisand.

The legendary singer has her music to take her mind off of the rumors:  Partners is out today. Although the album only features duets with men, Streisand says there are a number of female artists with whom she'd like to collaborate.

"Beyonce tried to do something. I would love to sing with her. I'm mad for her. I think she's a spectacular," Streisand said. "I'd love to sing with Rihanna, Adele. But I don't know all the other girls."

ABC/Adam TaylorMonday night on the season premiere of ABC's Dancing with the Stars, YouTube star Bethany Mota danced with pro Derek Hough to Taylor Swift's song "Shake It Off."  And Taylor was just a tiny bit excited over it.

Posting a video of the performance on Twitter, Taylor gushed, "Oh my God, LOVE HER, oh my God."  She also added the hashtag "#BAEthany" to express her admiration for the 18-year-old vlogger from California, whose online videos about fashion, hair, makeup and other lifestyle topics have garnered over 500 million views.

Bethany replied, "Thanks to my new nickname is literally LOOOOOOVE her so much."

Perhaps Taylor will add Bethany to her collection of famous young female friends, which includes Selena Gomez, Emma Stone, Karlie Kloss, Hailee Steinfeld, Lorde, Lena Dunham and others.

Jack White Told Bob Dylan that Songwriting in Dylan's Era Was Like "Shooting Fish in a Barrel"

Image Courtesy Mary Ellen Matthews

Tonight's the night Jack White appears on Dan Rather's Big Interview, on cable's AXS channel. In an excerpt from the program streaming on Rolling Stone's website, White relates how he once told Bob Dylan he feels it was easier to be a songwriter back in Dylan's 1960s heyday. 

"It was kind of like shooting fish in a barrel [to write popular songs back then]," White says he told the legendary singer.  White goes on to explain there were so many important issues -- like the civil rights movement and the Vietnam war -- and that young people were looking for a voice as they became aware of what a messed-up place their world was, which in turn provided fertile ground for singer-songwriters.

Today, however: "I hate to label the generation now 'entitled,'" White says, "but the sense of entitlement that's around nowadays...bugs me enough to want to overcome it.  I don't see beauty in teenagers all sitting next to each other texting and not talking to each other face-to-face."

White goes on to say that he tries to capture "truth" and "beauty" in his songs, but that "it's a lot harder now" than it was back in Dylan's time.

Dan Rather's Big Interview premieres tonight at 8 p.m. ET on AXS.
