Massachusetts state officials are debating whether to make Aerosmith's classic song "Dream On" the state's official song. While Aerosmith formed in New Hampshire, they made it big by playing Boston clubs in the early '70s. Boston group The Modern Lover's single "Roadrunner" is also being considered as the Massachusetts official state song. Mass. officials have invited local classic rock DJs to the State House in Boston for a formal music debate.
Bob Seger has been playing a new song titled "All the Roads" on his current cross-country tour, thrown in casually along with his usual greatest-hits live performance. Seger hinted last fall that he is working on his first original material since 2006's Face the Promise; hopefully, this new song is a sign of what's to come. Seger will perform at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn on April 16th as his tour wraps up.
