MR. BIG drummer Pat Torpey has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and will be unable to perform all of his normal drumming duties on the band's upcoming world tour in support of the group's new album, "...The Stories We Could Tell".
"I've been dealing with Parkinson’s symptoms for the past couple of years and only recently received a confirmed diagnosis as symptoms worsened," Torpey said. "I intend to fight the disease with same intensity and tenacity that I drum and live my life by and will continue recording and performing, as always, to the best of my ability."
MR. BIG will announce a replacement drummer who will sit behind the kit for the band's fall 2014 tour.
Torpey, 54, is expected to join his MR. BIG bandmates for select tracks as well as participate in the group's acoustic set.
Parkinson's disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system.
There is no cure for Parkinson's disease, but medications, surgery and multidisciplinary management can provide relief from the symptoms.
Asked in a 2011 interview with OnlineDrummer.com what influenced him to pick up a pair of sticks and start drumming, Torpey said: "I was about 7 or 8 years old, and my family used to go to this local picnic event with a live polka band. I was able to sit behind them and look down on the drummer, right on the top of him, and so from that vantage point I could see what he was doing, and I thought, 'Wow, that looks like fun!' That was my first memory of when I can remember wanting to play the drums. I went to my mother and said, 'I wanna play the drums,' and she gave me that look that parents give you, you know the 'Oh, yeah, sure you do… you're 7 years old.' So from there I kind of held on to that dream. I'd fashioned some drum sticks from a couple of sticks out of the yard. I carved them and drew my name on them with a magic marker, you know, the kind of thing an aspiring kid would do."
"...The Stories We Could Tell" will be released in September via Frontiers Records. The CD's first single will be made available later this summer.
MR. BIG's last album, "What If…", was released in Europe in January 2011 via Frontiers Records. The North American release, also on Frontiers Records, followed in February 2011.
"What If…" was MR. BIG's first "all-original" album since the reunion of the four original members, Eric Martin, Paul Gilbert, Billy Sheehan and Pat Torpey, back in early 2009. Sixteen years after the release of "Hey Man", the new recording was produced by Kevin Shirley (AEROSMITH, RUSH, IRON MAIDEN).
Formed in 1988, MR. BIG forged its place in hard rock history by combining trademark "shredding" musicianship with awesome vocal harmonies. The original lineup produced numerous hit songs that ranged across a wide array of rock genres, be it ballads, heavy metal, or blues rock. Their hits included "To Be With You" (Billboard Hot 100 number one single in 15 countries for weeks, in 1991, propelling the band the band to huge international success and record sales in the multi-millions), "Wild World", "Green-Tinted Sixties Mind", "Just Take My Heart", and a host of heavy metal songs that were played mostly during their live performances: "Daddy, Brother, Lover, Little Boy", "Addicted to that Rush", "Colorado Bulldog", and "Take Cover".
(Musicians drooled over this band because it featured Paul Gilbert and Billy Sheehan, who are gods on the guitar and bass, respectively.This was their biggest hit.)
It's clear that Kate Upton always has boyfriend Justin Verlander with her, even when they're not together!
The 22-year-old Sports Illustrated model stepped out today sporting a super-cute namesake bracelet with "Justin" written across it. The blond beauty paired her boyfriend bracelet with tight blue jeans, a classic white collared shirt, dark sunglasses and a purse during her lunch date with friends at Café Gratitude.
Though her 31-year-old baseballer beau wasn't by her side, he was clearly in her thoughts.
Just last week, Upton and Verlander were spotted soaking up the sun together during a romantic vacation in Cancun. A bikini-clad Upton was snapped showing off her hot body and cleavage while tanning on the beach next to her shirtless hunk.
According to an eyewitness, the two were "very loved up and enjoyed being with each other" during their beachy getaway.
ELLE’s September issue is our biggest fashion book of the year, so naturally we’ve shot the hottest model on the planet right now for the cover – Kate Upton.
Photographed by Matt Jones, the one-time Florida farm girl shows off her famous legs in new season Prada. And it doesn’t end there: inside, she sets the tone for autumn/winter 2014, modelling new-season collections by Christopher Kane, Dior, Alaïa, Chloé and Burberry.
‘When I first started modelling, I was a normal catalogue model,’ Kate explains in the accompanying interview, speaking about her stratospheric rise to fame – with that body.
‘Then, I became a woman, and I was really excited about becoming a woman. Because I’m from Florida, it’s all about being in bathing suits. It’s a different view of beauty there. You are ugly if you don’t have a curvy body. And I didn’t have one, and then I got one, and thought, “Yessss!”
‘And then people say: “Oh, wow, you’re healthy.”
'And you’re like, “Wait – what? I’ve been begging for this body my whole life!”’
Pop singer Britney Spears (and her hot bodyguard) is spotted running some errands inThousand Oaks, California on July 24, 2014. Britney stopped by Starbucks for a drink before visiting a nearby office building and coming out with some pamphlets. Zerona is a low-level laser device for non-invasive body slimming of the waist, hips, and thighs.
I guess this picture is to show off her ring (did I miss an obnoxiously titled Engagedney post?) but all I see are her stubby nails ugh
This is the cutest and most normal outfit she's worn in like 10 years.
The naked Warwick rowing team is back to fight homophobia with their stupid hot bodies!
Following their extremely successful 2014 calendar, the sizzlin' studs of the University of Warwick are stripping down yet again for their new crowdfunder campaign to raise money for Sport Allies, their charity initiative to challenge homophobia in and through sports.
In the hot pics the buff British stars pal around together in a grassy field with their sexy six-packs, bulging biceps, perfect pecs, rock-hard legs and firm bums on full display.
Warwick rower Laurence Hulse said of their charitable efforts, "We're basically a fundraising project—the money that comes in goes straight out again. We're not sitting on some vast pile of cash, so crowdfunding is an essential part of how we pay for production of the next year's calendars, films and everything else. Every summer we come up with great deals and unique offers that make it possible for us to cover our costs and get the best value from our suppliers, so that as much of our revenue as possible can go where its needed. It also means our supporters get a great deal!"
As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, Long Island Medium star Theresa Caputo has devastated her grieving clients by entirely missing the mark with her readings, acting rude and unapproachable off-camera, and using her assistants to gather information about the late loved one prior to the session. And now Radar can reveal that the TV psychic has upset a very famous client.
In September 2013, the New York native filmed a reading with missing woman Stacy Peterson’s sister, Cassandra Cales, for an upcoming season of her hit reality show, SciFake.com founder Ron Tebo alleges in a shocking new video.
In the clip, investigator Tebo reveals the online conversation he had in June with Cales, whose sister famously disappeared in 2007 at just 23 years old. (The prime suspect in the case is Peterson’s husband, former Illinois police sergeant Drew, who is currently serving 38 years in prison for murdering his previous wife, Kathleen Savio. In 2013, prosecutors said Drew could soon be facing a second murder charge in Stacy’s case.)
"[Caputo’s] staff contacted me and kept harassing me [for a reading],” Cales says in the messages. “Constant emails for months.”
But after giving in and flying to New York for the session with Caputo, 47, Illinois native Cales says she was underwhelmed by the self-proclaimed medium’s inability to connect with Stacy.
“She gave me nothing,” Cales tells Tebo in the messages. “She really sucked and wasn’t hitting on nothing.”
Though Caputo failed to convince Cales that she had made a connection, she allegedly told the mourning sister to stop searching for Stacy’s body.
“[Caputo] said Stacy didn’t want me searching for her, to put it to rest,” Cales says.“It was a hard day for me.”
“I think she was a fake, phony. And lied to me.”
The reading has never aired on Long Island Medium.
Last week, Radar revealed that a new tell-all threatened to expose Caputo’s various tour readings tricks.
The reality star has brushed off the numerous fraud reports, claiming “I don’t let negativity and negative people affect me.”
[This is just GROSS. I've watched the Lifetime movie on Stacy Peterson AND I've seen Drew on Dr. Phil. He's a sociopathy. Shame on Theresa for exploiting Stacy's sister.]
Are Charlize Theron and Sean Penn officially engaged?
The 38-year-old actress was seen rocking some brand new bling on that finger while strolling through Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday.
The glimpse of Theron's glitzy hardware comes just days after reports emerged that the hot Hollywood couple were planning to wed.
"They want to get married very soon," a source told US Weekly. "Sean is revitalized with Charlize."
Theron and Penn first went public with their romance over the holidays when they took a Hawaiian getaway together to ring in 2014.
While things have turned romantic for the pair within the last eight months, they have been pals in the industry for the last 18 years.
Why is there no "assholes" tag?
The rock band's frontwoman Jenny Lewis scored the film, also featuring Dakota Fanning, Demi Moore and Richard Dreyfuss.
Want to watch an Olsen sister sing but don't want to listen to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen perform that "Brother for Sale" song?
Then you're going to want to check out this clip from the upcoming film Very Good Girls, which features Elizabeth Olsen covering Rilo Kiley's "Go Ahead." It's no musical coincidence: Rilo Kiley frontwoman Jenny Lewis scored the film, which is directed by Lewis' friend, Naomi Foner.
Very Good Girls is in select theaters Friday. In addition to Olsen, the movie stars Dakota Fanning, Demi Moore and Richard Dreyfuss.
(get in line, Melo!)
Rusell Westbrook also visited the stage today and he received a shirt.

When last season’s Once Upon a Time finale aired on ABC, it left fans with a burning — or, rather, freezing — question: was that woman in blue really Elsa, the snow queen of Frozen fame?
The answer, a resounding yes, came quickly. But another question took its place: who would play the live-action Elsa?
The casting of actress Georgina Haig, of Fringe, was announced earlier in July, and today TIME presents your exclusive official first look at the character in costume. Sparkly blue gown? Check. Long, blond braid? Check. Letting it go? We can only hope.
The next season of Once Upon a Time will premiere on Sept. 28, 2014.
Phaedra Parks of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has a lot on her plate right now. Not only does she have two young children to tend to, she’s also got a husband who’s preparing to battle a prison stint. I can only imagine the stress Phaedra is going through, having to publicly deal with all of the drama while keeping it all together for her kids. That being said, I’ve heard that she’ll be taking time off from the show to make sure her family is straight during this trying time.
In addition to dealing with Apollo Nida’s upcoming prison stint, Phaedra also has to deal with the fact that he’s lied all this time about details of Kenya Moore and ‘Textgate’.
Apollo Nida could very well be on a mission to clean up a bunch a mess before he has to turn himself in to the feds and judging from his recent actions during a RHOA taping at Bar One restaurant, that could possibly be the case.
You may recall that I was in attendance during a recent taping of the show…
Well hunnnnny…. some thangs went down that night between Kenya Moore and Apollo that ‘the whole Atlanta’ has been buzzing about every since! It took me a while to write this post because I had to sleep on it a few days. I also prayed over it… sprinkled it with holy water and finally I figured that if it didn’t come from me it would come from someone… so why not just spill the tea? *sigh*
Things were terribly tense during the taping and I stayed away from the cameras since I didn’t sign a confidentiality agreement… but what I DID see was Apollo being prepped for a scene with Kenya. He appeared a bit agitated and it was almost like he knew it was a set up… but oh well, the show must go on, right?
Anywhoo… my sources all reveal that Phaedra was actually on her way to the event, but when she heard that Apollo was there, she never showed up.
During the evening’s festivities, Apollo reportedly admitted to Kenya that he only told Phaedra that the former beauty queen was pursuing him, in response to Kenya throwing out the fact that he’d texted her. Apparently the texts were innocent, but if you recall, Moore brought them up during the season 5 reunion as if Apollo was trying to pursue her.
During Cynthia’s Ebony Mag Celebration, Apollo and Kenya filmed a scene on the steps of Bar One (alone), and apparently it was then that Kenya demanded an apology from him about everything that had taken place over the past few seasons. I heard that Kenya also apologized to Apollo about her role in the situation, but I’m almost positive editing will make it all one sided.
Kenya reportedly has told all the ladies that Apollo has admitted he ‘lied’ about her all these years and Phaedra knew the whole time. It remains to be seen EXACTLY what he lied about but whatever the case, there’s footage that I’m almost positive will be used during season 7 of Apollo and Kenya having a heart to heart talk about it all.
As much as I despise Kenya, I’m sure she feels vindicated in some way. I won’t spoil it all for you because it will definitely play out onscreen. I can’t wait to see how this one turns out…
Kenya is about to slay this entire season! First Nene, then Porsha and now Phaedra? THIS IS GONNA BE A GOOD ASS SEASON!
How strings-master Margot and in-demand producer Boots reimagined Bey's 2003 song.
If you were surprised to hear Beyoncé lend her uh-oh-uh-ohs to the Fifty Shades of Grey film, you weren’t the only one.
“With everything she’s been doing recently, the surprise factor has been a big part of it,” says violinist and recording artist Margot, who arranged and played the strings on the new version of “Crazy in Love” that’s featured in the just-released trailer. In fact, Margot didn’t even know if her own contributions had made the cut until she watched the trailer for the first time on Thursday.
“It was one of those things that happened on the spot, and you have to jump when you know it’s a good opportunity,” she tells TIME.
The track was produced by Boots, who helmed much of Beyoncé’s last album; he and Margot have worked together on a number of projects, including Beyoncé and Boots’ recent mixtape. A few weeks ago, Boots called Margot to say he was working on a movie trailer and needed some string contributions — but he needed them that night. Margot met up with Boots in Brooklyn, he played her the track (which he had recorded just that day, not long after Bey’s team reached out) and she immediately began laying down the violin parts you hear before Beyoncé ever recorded vocals.
“It inspires me to work on other artists’ songs [because] it pushes my boundaries in a direction that I wouldn’t necessarily come up with,” Margot says. “Obviously I know how ‘Crazy in Love’ goes, but I knew there was the possibility her vocals would be different. It’s almost more vulnerable and beautiful this way, because you do do crazy things when you fall in love. To hear the mood reversed and flipped makes it even more powerful.”
Despite their success in remaking the track for the highly anticipated film adaptation, neither Margot nor Boots have actually read the book.
“It’s funny, when it comes to scoring films and making music, it’s more about the mood that you’re capturing anyway,” she says. “We didn’t necessarily need to know the storyline to make something dramatic and sensual.”
Beyoncé for a trash film. Seems fitting, tbh.
But on a recent July afternoon in New York City, a gold nameplate necklace in script letter falls at just the right spot on the model's chest so that any onlooker could clearly read "Andreja" and subtly understand the message Pejic is now revealing to the world: The renowned androgynous model underwent sex reassignment surgery earlier this year.
"I want to share my story with the world because I think I have a social responsibility," Pejic, 22, tells PEOPLE exclusively. "I hope that by being open about this, it becomes less of an issue."
The Early Years
"I always dreamt of being a girl," explains the Serbian-born model. "One of my earliest memories is spinning around in my mom's skirt trying to look like a ballerina."
But things changed when her family moved to Australia. By age 9, Pejic came to receive what she describes as "a social message, from my brother and friends at school," that it was time to put away the dolls and skirts that she favored.
"I wanted to be a good kid and I wanted to please my parents," she says. With little success, Pejic went about trying to hang out with the boys and participate in team sports. "I kept my dreams and my imagination to myself and became pretty good at acting as a boy. But I was hiding who I was."
At the age of 13, in Burrmeadow, a suburb of Melbourne, Pejic's course turned digital. "I went into the library and typed 'sex change' into Google and my life changed," she recalls. The search results for the now-antiquated term yielded a flood of information and relief. "The Internet gave me the sense that there were words to describe my feelings and medical terms," says Pejic, who left realizing "this is what I need to do."
Going through government regulated channels for a minor to transition required lengthy court processes and she had neither the cash to cover legal fees nor the time, as she knew male hormones were taking effect on her body. "I knew puberty would turn me into something like my brother and father," notes Pejic, who began taking puberty blockers.
Raised primarily by her mother, she always had her family to lean on throughout her journey. "When I told my mother, grandma and my brother, they were all very supportive," Pejic, who eventually reintroduced the feminine flair into the everyday style she had shunned and developed a plan for her future, says. "I was going to finish high school as Andrej, transition, and forget about my male past."
A Designer Detour
Pejic's plans were put on hold when she was discovered at age 17 by a modeling agent. "It was an opportunity to see the world and gain some financial stability," she explains.
While her name was listed among the male models at top agencies around the world, she found herself in the enviable position of modeling both men's and women's fashions. She cites one 2011 runway moment as her finest modeling memory. "Being a bride for Gaultier was a very special moment for me,” says Pejic of walking the designer's spring haute couture show.
But "about a year and a half ago, I reevaluated things," says Pejic. "I was proud of my gender nonconforming career. But my biggest dream was to be comfortable in my own body. I have to be true to myself and the career is just going to have to fit around that."
Pejic began meeting with doctors in the U.S. to continue her transition with sex reassignment surgery.
A New Beginning
Pejic recalls the day she'd been dreaming of for so many years.
"I was happy the moment had come – as happy as you can be before a surgery," she tells PEOPLE. Her physical recovery from the process has been steady. "It was about three months before I felt like myself again," she admits.
When asked about the extent of her surgery, "I completely agree with Laverne Cox and [former PEOPLE.com staff editor] Janet Mock," explains Pejic of notable transgender women who choose not to publicly discuss their sexual organs and instead prefer to focus on advocating and activism within the trans community. Plus, "what's in between anyone's legs is not who they are."
Although Pejic has had several serious boyfriends in the past few years, she's currently single but adds, "I'm open to love."
But more important, she's loving this new chapter in her life. "Every day is like a new revelation," she says. "I'm more comfortable than ever. I feel at a 100 percent."
The world changed, if only a little, on July 17, 1988, in a hotel room in Atlanta, Georgia. That was the night Rob Lowe pressed the red button on his camcorder to kick off what we now call the celebrity sex tape.
He was there for the Democratic National Convention, to support Michael Dukakis. Ted Turner gave a party, then Lowe, Judd Nelson and Ally Sheedy went to a nightclub called Club Rio on Luckie Street (and that joke is too obvious even for me).
He went back to his hotel with two Atlanta hairdressers: one was 22, the other 16, which was the legal age of consent in Georgia, although he said later he had no idea she was that young. Who did what to whom is disputed, but they filmed it.
When he went to the bathroom, according to his version, recounted in People magazine two years later, they disappeared with the tape. A few weeks later he received a lawyer's letter informing him that the mother of the 16-year-old had the tape and was threatening to sue. Lowe's lawyers called it an extortion attempt but he settled out of court with the girl and her father - not the estranged mother.
The scandal almost destroyed Lowe, according to his own account. The reaction was entirely negative, a threat to the way the public saw him as an actor. Producers said he would be difficult to hire because everyone would be thinking of the sex tape. Lowe spent four days holed up in his home in Los Angeles, besieged by reporters. He eventually escaped by crawling down a ravine on all fours to get away.
He now says the scandal saved his life: he hit bottom in his abuse of alcohol and pills, got sober and restarted his career with spectacular success. Redemption followed humiliation, but there was still a strong sense of shame attached to the act.
He was able, eventually, to develop a sense of humour about it. In fact, he co-stars in a new film called Sex Tape, in which Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel, playing a couple with children, discover that the sex tape they made in jest has been stolen and released on the internet. Lowe plays her boss, who may be involved in the leaking of the tape. His humiliation has now become a comedy.
The world in which Lowe made that tape no longer exists. Celebrity sex tapes are now common, and some people leak them deliberately to get noticed, or to revive a sagging career. They have become mainstream and much less shameful or embarrassing. Why is that? Is it not still mortifying to know that half of the western world can download and watch your pale, flabby bottom in the midst of the most intimate act? When did shame disappear?
At the same time, celebrities and stars have become even more vulnerable. There is a lot of money to be made in getting one to have sex with you. Even better if the celebrity bonks your friend while you film it with a smart phone. That way, you own the tape, because you filmed it.
The question of ownership becomes crucial when making a deal with a porn company to release it on DVD or on the internet. Todd Carney's recent outrage, while not a sex tape, illustrates how the world has changed, now that everyone carries a high-resolution camera in their pocket.
Lowe's tape would not have been possible without the invention of the camcorder, released by Sony in 1983. This made home-sex taping easy and cheap. The internet exploded 10 years later, and access to pornography with it. As bandwidth grew and computers became movie players, a perfect storm of sex and celebrity was born. The rise of porn, its availability on any computer, appears to have normalised the idea of the sex tape, removing a lot of the shame. The way a sex tape impacts on careers has changed. It has become a path to stardom and money - lots of it.
Paris Hilton was a little-known actress and socialite before she got it on with Rick Salomon, her then boyfriend, on tape in 2003. The tape was leaked on the internet just before her new Fox reality show debuted. Both sued the company that released the tape and both lost. They then signed an agreement to share the profits. The New York Times reported that the tape had sold more than 600,000 copies by 2006.
Ice-skater Tonya Harding and husband Jeff Gillooly went the same route with their leaked sex tape - eventually selling it themselves. Pamela Anderson and her then-husband Tommy Lee organised the release of their tape, in 1998. She has the distinction of having appeared in two sex tapes: the second, with singer Bret Michaels, was released on DVD in 2005, after it had been freely available on the internet for some time. Kim Kardashian's career took off after her 2003 tape with Ray J was leaked in 2007. She sued Vivid Video, then settled for a reported $5 million. E! signed her to do a new reality show soon after.
Hilton, Anderson and Kardashian thus established a new career path. Fame and infamy turned out to be the same thing and equally marketable. These "stars" could make millions by being themselves, just without their clothes on. No acting required. No shame either.
Whose sex tape would you like to see?
The rapper slays on the Jessie J and Ariana Grande team-up!
With pure disregard for Twitter’s ability to function, Nicki Minaj Instagrammed a snippet of her part on “Bang Bang,” the Jessie J-helmed collab with the “Pills N Potions” rapper and Ariana Grande. The verse hits hard, it hits fast, and truly none of us are ready.
In case there was any confusion regarding Nicki’s claim to the throne, she clarifies on the track: “Batman Robin it/ Bang bang cockin’ it/ Queen Nicki dominant/ Prominent/ It’s me, Jessie, and Ari/ If they test me they sorry.” Any questions? Good.
Combined with that single artwork for “Anaconda” — where she pulls a move I’m dubbing a “Reverse Sucka Free” — Nicki’s not gonna be leaving your trending topics any time soon.

18 (5) Things You Learn After Two Long Days With Lana Del Rey
From her real age to her taste in men, here's what didn't fit into Rolling Stone's cover story
1.Del Rey just turned 29 – not 28, as it's usually reported – but she denies responsibility for shaving off a year.
"People have said different ages," she says with impressive vagueness.
2.She likes older dudes.
"I sort of have an affinity for really good, strong, self-assured people," she says. "I would say I haven't met them as much in people who are in their 20s. So for me, I have nothing in common necessarily with somebody who's in their 20s – yet. That I know of, thus far. I'm really looking for an equal."
3.She never met Lady Gaga, although they were part of the same downtown scene.
"Her manager, Bob Leone, was a confidante of mine, and he gave me a two-month scholarship to a songwriting class and put me on a list of Monday night lineups at the Cutting Room. We played a couple of shows together, but never met."
As for the early leaked Del Rey song "So Legit," which comes off as a direct attack on Gaga ("Stefani, you suck")? "That was a misunderstanding," she says. Or maybe it was just not supposed to be heard by anyone? She just laughs.
4.Contrary to popular belief, she is happy sometimes.
"I mean, I'm happy when things aren't bad," she says. "I'm happy when things are just kind of calm. I love going to the ocean. I love driving. I love going to shows. Just being with people I really have fun with. I love the summer. I'm happy in the summer. Love hot, hot weather. I'm happy when I'm making a record, most of the time."
5.She's buddies with Juliette Lewis, who had publicly dissed her SNL performance.
"I was actually friends with her before that but she didn't know it was me on TV," she says. "I had been more blonde before or something. She called me and was like, 'Oh, I'm so sorry.' But we got over it. Because the truth is, we're birds of a feather in a way. In the end, we thought it was really funny."

Yes, you might recognize the name on them. I absolutely love the one with Jessica Chastain’s iconic red hair as an outline. It’s rare to see a film — any film, let alone a love story — with women as whole human beings. Movies like this used to exist but somewhere along the line movies with women in them at all began disappearing and the ones that were left seemed to feature hollow, predictable characters, but for every once in a while. This film illustrates how a love story can be told without sacrificing the more important human story underneath. Good stuff. Don’t miss it.
