    Burt Bacharach, taking to the political stage at age 92, is using song, reminiscences and commentary on current events to rally Florida seniors to vote for Joe Biden. He didn’t hold back in a Zoom video conference on Thursday evening. Bacharach thinks President Donald Trump is dangerous and must be defeated.
  • Cyndi Lauper blasts gay MAGA activist Brandon Straka’s appropriation of “True Colors” for #WalkAway campaign

    NY Daily News ^ | 10/20/20
    Things have gotten “so unusual” when it comes to one of Cyndi Lauper’s biggest hits. The pop music legend is peeved that one of her most heartfelt songs is being peddled by an ardent supporter of President Trump, whose mission is to encourage disenfranchised groups to support the caustic commander-in-chief. “As a gay man in America, I spent most of my life believing that Republicans hated me,” #WalkAway campaign founder Brandon Straka said with the release of his audacious cover of the Lauper staple “True Colors.” “In the past few years, I’ve received more love, support, and respect from Republicans,...

    The day the music really died. Miracle that so many people survived. Drummer Artemis Pyle and piano player Billy Powell were able to walk out of the woods to seek help despite severe injuries. Artemus Pyle actually had ribs sticking out of his chest. It must have been pure shock that allowed him to walk out of the woods. I was a sophomore in High School in Tacoma, WA when I heard this devastating news. Seemed like a bunch of good ol' boys. Interesting the Freebird was not a favorite among honky tonk patrons. It was written as a 3...
  • Steve Perry Looks Back on Touring With Van Halen and the Eddie Collaboration That Might Have Been

    On October 6th, Steve Perry got a text from his recording engineer that read, “Oh man, Eddie Van Halen. I can’t believe it.” The former Journey frontman had no idea what he was talking about. “I don’t watch the news anymore,” he says. “And so I picked up the phone and said, ‘What’s going on?'” When he heard the tragic news that the guitarist died after a long battle with cancer, Perry’s mind instantly went back to 1978 when Van Halen opened for Journey for eight weeks on the Infinity tour. He phoned up Rolling Stone to tell stories from...
  • Artist behind ‘Y.M.C.A.’ Trump parody challenges president to dance-off

    New York Post ^ | October 10,2020 | Isabel Vincent
    The artist and activist who calls himself Dee Dee Plorable wants to challenge President Trump to a dance-off. To that end, he’s created a parody of the wildly popular disco anthem “Y.M.C.A.” — substituting M.A.G.A., the acronym for Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan. The Trump campaign recently played the Village People’s 1978 hit at some of their campaign rallies, but now Dee Dee Plorable, whose real name is Francis Shivers, wants him to adopt — and groove to — his new version.
  • Zoltan Bathory: New Five Finger Death Punch Video Does Not Have Anti-Mask Message

    Yesterday (Oct. 16), Five Finger Death Punch released a music video for "Living the Dream." The video was rife with social commentary, some of which has been met with backlash for the way people who wear a mask — to mitigate the spread of a pandemic contagion) are compliant under a Communist system of government — or one that resembles such. Guitarist Zoltan Bathory has issued a lengthy statement, clarifying the intent behind the video, denying it bears an anti-mask message. In his statement, Bathory alleges news media outlets forewent explaining what his message in the "Living the Dream" video...

    Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon, aka “Johnny Rotten,” has confirmed that he is “definitely” voting for President Donald Trump in America’s upcoming presidential election, railing against the establishment politicians who’ve been running the country. Lydon, who is English but became an American citizen in 2013, said he doesn’t care about Trump’s personality but rather a continued shake-up of the political system. “He’s an individual thinker, I’ll give him that for a start,” he said in an interview with BBC’s Newsday. “He’s not the most lovable fellow on God’s earth, but I cannot see the opposition as offering me anything by...

Most people spend their entire lives trying to achieve some measure of immortality.

  • Eddie Van Halen, grinning guitar god for a rock generation, dies at 65

    Eddie Van Halen, the all-American guitar hero who, with his namesake hard-rock band Van Halen, redefined the sound and possibilities of the electric guitar in the 1970s and ’80s, died on Tuesday at age 65. The cause was throat cancer. “I can’t believe I’m having to write this, but my father, Edward Lodewijk Van Halen, has lost his long and arduous battle with cancer this morning,” wrote his son, Wolfgang Van Halen via Twitter. “He was the best father I could ever ask for. Every moment I’ve shared with him on and off stage was a gift... I love you...
  • Led Zeppelin emerges victorious in ‘Stairway to Heaven’ plagiarism case

    New York Post ^ | October 5, 2020
    British rock band Led Zeppelin on Monday effectively won a long-running legal battle over claims it stole the opening guitar riff from its signature 1971 song “Stairway to Heaven.” The band, one of the best-selling rock acts of all time, was handed victory after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to take up the case, meaning that a March 2020 decision by a U.S. appeals court in Led Zeppelin’s favor will stand. Lead singer Robert Plant and guitarist Jimmy Page had been accused in the six-year-long case of lifting the riff — one of the best-known openings in rock music —...

    Hollywood Reporter ^ | SEPTEMBER 24, 2020 | Eriq Gardner
    Sometimes, lawyers need a light touch. Like when a famously laid-back actor uses an unlicensed song to hawk an "ugly" golf shirt. Often, the legal threats come hot and heavy. But that's not what happens when Bill Murray uses without license the Doobie Brothers' "Listen to the Music" for an advertisement for his golf shirts, and the band must react. Here, the group's attorney Peter Paterno attempts to lightly scold Murray. He writes, "It seems like the only person who uses our clients' music without permission more than you do is Donald Trump … We'd almost be OK with it...

    Federal authorities could seek the death penalty for the two men accused of killing Run-DMC DJ Jam Master Jay, prosecutors said Friday. Prosecutors said they had discussed the move with defense attorneys representing Ronald Washington, 56, and Karl Jordan Jr., 36, the duo accused of busting into Jam Master Jay’s studio on Oct. 30, 2002. Jordan was charged with pulling the trigger at point-blank range, while Washington pointed his gun at others in the room, authorities said. “We had discussed our capital case memorandum which the government is prepared to submit,” said Assistant U.S. Attorney Artie McConnell in the Friday...
