July 6 Rock Report

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is not ruling out the possibility of making a "Sonic Highways" season two. The first season premiered on HBO in 2014, and followed the band as it recorded their eight studio album of the same name in eight different cities across the U.S. In a recent interview, Grohl said he still has the "concept for the second season, so, someday." Back in 2015, Grohl said the second season could take place in England.

 

U2 is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the release of its eighth studio album "Zooropa." Released on July 5th, 1993, the record served as the follow up to 1991's "Achtung Baby" and continued the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame band's exploration of electronic sounds and dance music. The ten-track collection featured songs such as "Stay (Faraway, So Close!)," "Lemon," the title track and the album-closing "The Wanderer" featuring vocals by Johnny Cash. "Zooropa" went on to sell over seven million copies worldwide.

Heart singer Ann Wilson is revealing that late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell joked about suicide in a hotel room. In a recent interview, Wilson said Cornell had "gallows humor about being lonely in hotel rooms," and once said, "The only thing missing is a noose." The deaths of Cornell, Tom Petty, David Bowie and others inspired Wilson to record "Immortal," an album of covers by recently deceased musicians. The ten-track set is due September 14th.
