Ryan Knight (Ex-The Black Dahlia Murder, Etc.) Streams New Song “Chica Funk”

Ryan Knight (ex-The Black Dahlia Murder, etc.) is streaming a new song titled “Chica Funk.” This track is from his new solo album “Sunbelt Bliss,“ which will be released on November 16.

Knight said the following about the new album:

“A little over a year ago I tracked an album of 9 tunes with some great musicians/people in Atlanta, Ga. Co-produced with bassist Kevin Scott (Jimmy Herring Band, Wayne Krantz, FORQ), it was an arduous process, and much respect to those out there working on your own endeavors and seeing them through.

Ultimately, I wanted to write some melodic, catchy tunes that were much different than anything else I’d been involved with in the past. The end result of that is Sunbelt Bliss. Huge thanks to the gentlemen who lended me their talents and support, Sunbelt Bliss will be officially avail Nov 16th on iTunes, Spotify, amazon, etc, but you can preorder digital here ryanknightguitar.bandcamp.com and physical here www.sunbeltbliss.com, cheers!”

Jimi Hendrix saw these Southern California daze when he sang look at the sky turn hellfire red someone’s house is burning down down down down. The Los Angeles air is thick with smoke, ash, and ember and the danger has not passed. My house might have burned down down last night were it not for my friend Eric (in the second pic) who defied the evacuation orders and stayed up all through the night armed with his wits and a garden hose, and put out all the little fires at my house and my neighbors, saving our asses. He is a brave and beautiful, a selfless and kind man. So I was able to go be silly with my kids today and go get our nails painted funny colors, without bearing the heavy weariness of having lost all my stuff. We are not out of the woods yet, but with people like eric around we are gonna be ok. Times like these we have to do everything we can to help each other, listen to each other, step up for our neighbors. Empathy is everything, our greatest trait.

Report: Aerosmith’s Joe Perry Rushed To Hospital After Performing With Billy Joel

According to TMZ, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry was rushed to a hospital after playing “Walk This Way” with Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden in New York last night (November 10). Perry collapsed in his dressing room after the performance and paramedics were sent to the scene. They reportedly worked on Perry for 40 minutes and even but a trachea down his throat. He was then taken out of the venue on a stretcher. In an update, the site added that Perry was having “breathing issues for the last few weeks and it came to a head last night” due to congestion in his lungs. He is still in the hospital, but he appears to be doing good and may be released as early as Sunday afternoon.

UPDATE: Perry’s publicist has now commented:

“Following a guest performance during Billy Joel’s show last night at Madison Square Garden, Joe Perry experienced shortness of breath and was treated backstage by paramedics who gave the guitarist oxygen and used a tracheal tube to clear his airway before taking him to a hospital. This morning Perry remains in the hospital where he is alert and responsive. The Aerosmith guitarist will be unable to appear today at Rock And Roll Fantasy Camp in Florida and apologizes to those attending. Perry is expected to return to the road later this month.”
