WEEZER

Proving that their hearts are as big as the rock they play, Weezer has joined forces with TargetCancer. This is a non-profit organization created for funding purposes of researching rare and lesser-known cancer treatments.

TargetCancer has created a download series called The Right Track whereby artists contribute unreleased songs that fans can download using a unique payment arrangement. With a $.99 minimum, buyers are asked to pay whatever they wish. 100% of the proceeds from each sale go directly to research funding. Songs change each month.

Weezer chose the song “The Rat Race” as their contribution. Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo said, "We jumped at the chance to give an exclusive track for TargetCancer Charity. We feel this is an extremely worthy and urgent cause and are all too happy to help out."

BRIAN HOWE

Also returning to the spotlight is former Bad Company and Ted Nugent vocalist Brian Howe. Entitled Circus Bar, the Frontiers Records release will feature two remakes of previous Bad Company hits “How ‘Bout That” and “Holy Water”.

Replacing Paul Rodgers in Bad Company, Brian and the band went on to sell over 19 million records during his 10-year tenure.

The track listing of Circus Bar is: I’m Back; Life’s Mystery; There’s This Girl; Could Have Been You; Surrounded; Flying; How It Could Have Been; My Town; How ‘Bout That; Feels Like I’m Coming Home; If You Want Trouble; Feelings; Holy Water; Little George Street
