Happy Holidays to us. Paul McCartney will be the music guest on SNL on Dec. 15. If you're a fan of SNL, you'll also be happy know that Martin Short will be returning as the host.
Led Zeppelin and Buddy Guy received Kennedy Center Honors over the weekend. It's an annual event where big names in the performing arts are given beautiful rainbow sashes because they contributed so much to American culture. All jokes aside, congratulations guys.
And speaking of those honors, Plant, Page and Jones showed up on the Late Show With David Letterman this week to talk about, well, just how awesome they are. They didn't perform, but they did have a great conversation.
Fleetwood Mac will be launching a world tour in the spring of 2013. They won't make it to Austin, but they will be playing at Dallas and Houston in June. Tickets got on sale next week.
Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi will be reviving Elwood and Jake Blues to celebrate the House of Blues' 20th anniversary. The Blues Brothers opened for ZZ Top at a performance at a Los Angeles House this past Tuesday. Aykroyd will be visiting a lot of different locations to pump another shot of adrenaline in to everything that House of Blues stands for. However, he also took the time to remember some of the founding members of the Blues Brothers that aren't around today, like John Belushi and Donald "Duck" Dunn.
