Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney is recovering after undergoing a secret heart operation. The 65-year-old underwent a coronary angioplasty – a procedure to open up arteries, allowing a greater flow of blood to and from the heart – late last year. But the star has made a good recovery – he appeared onstage with singer Kylie Minogue for a televised concert on New Year’s Eve. A spokesman for McCartney confirmed the surgery adding, “It was a routine medical operation.”

Dave Mustaine has announced the lineup for this year’s Gigantour. In addition to Megadeth, the road trip will feature In Flames, Children of Bodom, Job For a Cowboy and High on Fire. Dates are expected to be announced soon.

Kid Rock and Aerosmith will headline the Harley Owners Group’s 25th anniversary concert, it was announced yesterday. The concert is set for August 28th at Milwaukee’s Miller Park and will cap an all-day 25th anniversary celebration. The bad news? Only Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) members will have the chance to purchase tickets for the show.

P.O.D. have announced the title and release date for their new album. Called When Angels and Serpents Dance, it will hit stores April 8th. And according to MTV, it will feature a guest appearance by Suicidal Tendencies singer Mike Muir.

Aaron Lewis and members of Tesla, Stryper and Boston will reportedly play this year’s benefit concert for survivors of the February, 2003 nightclub fire in Providence, Rhode Island. MTV reports that they’ve all signed on for the February 25th concert at Providence’s Dunkin Donut Center, which will be hosted by Dee Snider of Twisted Sister. One hundred people were killed in the fire, sparked by pyrotechnics during a Great White concert, and many of those who survived don’t qualify for Social Security benefits. Good thing for the families of this most tragic event which I’ll never forget.

How cool is this one? Unsigned instrumentalists will compete against one another for a chance to perform on stage with Foo Fighters at the 50th annual Grammy Awards, as part of the My Grammy Moment contest. String, woodwind and brass players are invited to submit up to 60 seconds of performance on their particular instrument to the tune of the Foos’ hit “The Pretender” before Jan. 20. Forty-five quarter finalists will be determined by Grammy-ordained judges, after which voting will be open to the public to choose three semi-finalists.  hose select three will perform in an orchestra with Foo Fighters and, from there, a winner will be determined to play with the band during the Feb. 10 broadcast.
