ABC/Randy HolmesWashington-based Metallica cover band Blistered Earth recently had their gear stolen after a show in Portland. But good news: the real James Hetfield and company came to the rescue.

"Sometimes when bad things happen it really brings out the best in people," Blistered Earth writes on their Facebook. "Thanx to the the attention you guys helped bring to the matter of our stolen gear...James & the rest of the guys in Metallica (thanx guys) have seen fit to replace our equipment. Thank you guys!"

The thieves stole pretty much every instrument Blistered Earth played, including guitars, basses and drums, plus a number of amps and pedals.

"It's pretty cool that [Metallica] decided to [replace the equipment]," drummer Shawn Murphy tells OregonLive. "It's a pretty nice gesture."

Metallica will kick off a North American stadium tour in support of their new album Hardwired...to Self-Destruct on May 10 in Baltimore.

ABC/Paula LoboBlink-182 was supposed to headline the Fyre Festival this weekend, a luxury festival held on a private island in the Bahamas, but the punk trio has cancelled their appearance amid reports that the event is on the brink of collapse.

"Regrettably, and after much careful and difficult consideration, we want to let you know that we won't be performing at Fyre Fest in the Bahamas this weekend and next weekend," Blink writes in a statement posted to Twitter. "We're not confident that we would have what we need to give you the quality of performances we always give our fans."

Meanwhile, Fyre Festival ticket-holders, who paid up to $12,000 for a ticket, have been documenting their experience arriving on the island, describing the event as a "complete disaster." "There are no villas, just a disaster tent city," attendee William N. Finley IV tweeted, as he documented the chaos from his perspective.

Organizers of the Fyre Festival, which was co-created by rapper Ja Rule, have now shared a statement announcing that the event will be postponed.

"The festival is being postponed until we can further assess if and when we are able to create the high-quality experience we envisioned," the statement reads.

Courtesy of Rock & Roll Hall of FamePearl Jam was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame earlier this month, and HBO is airing highlights from the ceremony during a special premiering this Saturday, April 29.

David Letterman did the honor of officially welcoming the grunge vets into the Rock Hall, and the band performed their songs "Given to Fly," "Better Man" and "Alive," that last one with Dave Krusen on drums for the first time in 25 years.

"I love these people so much," a grateful Eddie Vedder said of his band mates during his speech. "We love hanging out, and we love touring, we love playing, we love writing, we love recording."

Leading up to the ceremony, there was some controversy over which of Pearl Jam's drummers would be inducted as part ofh the band. Out of the five people to play drums in Pearl Jam over the band's career -- Dave Krusen, Matt Chamberlain, Dave Abbruzzese, Jack Irons and Matt Cameron -- only original drummer Krusen and current member Cameron were inducted, which did not sit well with Abbruzzese.

Still, Pearl Jam publicly invited all five drummers to attend the event, and Vedder thanked each of them during his speech, including Abbruzzese.

"We had the great Dave Abbruzzese, he was a great drummer," he said. "He is a great drummer, he's a great f****** drummer, and we wish him well."

Vedder also gave a special shout-out to Cameron, who is Pearl Jam's longest-tenured drummer.

"We're so fortunate, every one of [our drummers] was great," Vedder said. "But Matt Cameron has really been the one that really kept us alive for this last 15, 16, 17 years."

The 2017 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony airs this Saturday at 8 p.m. ET on HBO.

To accompany the track, Auerbach has released a video documenting the day in the life of a lonely man -- the proverbial "king of a one horse town." You can watch the video now via Pitchfork.com.

"The 'King of a One Horse Town' is anyone who's scared of the outside world," Auerbach explains. "Anyone who's afraid to go beyond their own block for fear of failure. It could be a drug dealer. A drunk. A professor. That's a feeling any of us can relate to."

Tim Mosenfelder/Getty ImagesRadiohead's landmark third album, OK Computer turns 20 years old on May 21, and the band seems to be hinting at some kind of event marking the milestone.

Fans of the group have spotted posters in cities like London, New York, Los Angeles, Amsterdam and Berlin, all containing references reference lyrics from the song "Fitter Happier," which appears on the album. Another common thread the posters have is that they all include "1997-2017" at the bottom.

Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke and the guys haven't announced any anniversary plans so far, but that hasn't stopped fans from offering some predictions on Reddit.

Scott Kowalchyk/CBS ©2017CBS Broadcasting Inc. All Rights Reserved.On Wednesday night, Dave Grohl brought his mother Virginia Grohl with him to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Mrs. Grohl is promoting her book, From Cradle to Stage: Stories from the Mothers Who Rocked and Raised Rock Stars.

Host Stephen Colbert razzed Dave throughout the segment, showing an early picture of him and reading from his 6th grade report card. He also pointed out that Dave brings his mother to a lot of his performances, to which he replied, “She's perfectly comfortable on the road, though. You know, I give her a laminate, and play a gig, and come back to the dressing room and she's having a beer with Green Day.”

Colbert then asked his mother, “At what point did it occur to you that he might be a rock star?”

She answered, “Well, I didn't know he was going to be a rock star. I knew he was going to be a musician. I knew really early he was going to be an entertainer.”

Colbert asked how she coped with the death of Kurt Cobain. She replied, “It was such a dark, sad time. And David came home after that, so we all sort of had to regroup. And, yes, we talked a lot. We've always talked. We've always been able to say everything to each other. But that was a particularly sort of incredible time.”

After the segment, Dave sat in with musical guests, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band and performed “Santiago” from their new album So It Is, with house band Jon Batiste & Stay Human.

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:30 on CBS.
