Motorhead to regroup for Lemmy tribute shows

  Motorhead to regroup for Lemmy tribute shows The surviving members of Motorhead are regrouping for an upcoming tribute to late band leader Lemmy. Phil Campbell has confirmed there are plans to put the group back together for a series of concerts with special guests filling in for the Ace of Spades singer. "It's on the cards, but it's just gonna be a few select shows," the guitarist told Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon. "We're not gonna be touring with it. We're gonna get these people involved and we'll just do some special shows worldwide, which will be good - a tribute to Lem and to the band maybe, but it wouldn't be an ongoing thing. "Everyone's too busy, but (we want to) do something special. We're still trying to work on that now." Campbell's comments will be good news for Motorhead fans after drummer Mikkey Dee declared the band would be no more following Lemmy's death in December, 2015. "Motorhead is over, of course," he told Sweden's Expressen newspaper. "Lemmy was Motorhead. We won't be doing any more tours or anything. And there won't be any more records. But the brand survives, and Lemmy lives on in the hearts of everyone." Meanwhile, Campbell has also updated fans on the status of his upcoming solo album, which will feature guest appearances by rock royalty Rob Halford, Matt Sorum, Dee Snider, and Joe Satriani. "I'm gonna try to get my solo record out in 2018," he told Lafon.

Clarke-Salter closing in on Sunderland loan move

  Clarke-Salter closing in on Sunderland loan move Chelsea youngster Jake Clarke-Salter is reportedly closing in on a loan move to Championship strugglers Sunderland. Football Insider claims that Chris Coleman’s side are in advanced talks with the Premier League champions over a deal. Clarke-Salter has stayed at the club during the first half of the season after failing to agree a move elsewhere in the summer. After spending time on loan at Bristol Rovers last season, Norwich were heavily linked with a move for the player throughout the summer. Injuries had complicated a deal, but now the central defender looks set to move on in the new year. Clarke-Salter has made just a few first-team appearances for Chelsea, but the defender is highly thought of and the club are ready to let him leave for the next stage of his development. Chelsea are likely to be very busy in the January window when it comes to younger players leaving on loan and Clarke-Salter could be the next out of the door.
