    Willie's back, thank goodness. " God's Problem Child " is Willie Nelson's first CD of completely new material in three years, and his advanced age (Don't look now, he turns 84 on April 29) hasn't dulled his pen, his voice, or his simple, eloquent guitar.

    Elton John has cancelled all of his upcoming concerts in Las Vegas after contracting a rare and “potentially deadly” infection while touring in South America. A representative for John said Monday that the 70-year-old “Rocket Man” Grammy-winner would no longer be able to honor the April and May dates of his Las Vegas residency, “The Million Dollar Piano,” due to an extended stay in a hospital recovering from the rare illness. “During a recent, successful tour of South America, Elton contracted a harmful and unusual bacterial infection,” the singer’s representative said in a statement obtained by People magazine. “During his...

    Bill Haley & His Comets - Rock Around The Clock (1955) HD Bill Haley & His Comets was an American Rock&Roll band founded in 1952 that continued playing until Haley's death in 1981.

From late 1954 to1956, the group placed nine singles into the Top 20 and three more in the Top Ten. Many fans consider them to be as revolutionary in their time as The Beatles or the Rolling Stones were a decade or two...

  • Words to patriotic hymn I Vow To Thee My Country are ‘almost obscene’, says vicar

    Daily Mail ^ | November 8, 2013 | Steve Doughty
    A leading Church of England vicar yesterday condemned the words of one of the country’s best-loved hymns as obscene, offensive and unfit to be sung by Christians. The Reverend Gordon Giles, one of the Anglicans’ leading authorities on hymns, declared that I Vow to Thee My Country should be rewritten if it is to be sung by modern congregations. His verdict was delivered in advance of the remembrance weekend when the hymn, which is especially valued by military families, will feature in thousands of services across the country and the Commonwealth.

    Bruce Springsteen releases anti-Trump protest song © Getty Images Rock-and-roll legend Bruce Springsteen has released a new anti-Trump protest song called “That’s What Makes Us Great.” Springsteen joined with frequent collaborator Joel Grushecky on the track. Grushecky told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he wrote the song after Trump took office in January. “I had this song, and Bruce and I had been talking. I sent it to him and he liked it. I said, ‘What do you think about singing on it?’ He gave it the Bruce treatment.” Springsteen hits Trump for his reported distaste for reading in one verse,...

  • Henry VIII’s last wife is heading for debut [Gaude Gloriosa unheard in 450 years]

    Slipped Disk ^ | 10 April 2017 | Norman LeBrecht
    Music from Thomas Tallis’s motet Gaude gloriosa was found buried in the walls of Corpus Christi College, Oxford, in 1978. Recently, the conductor David Skinner has identified the text as being by Henry VIII’s sixth and last queen Catherine Parr. The words are from Parr’s psalm paraphrase ‘Against Enemies’ in her first publication Psalms or Prayers, published in London in 1544, and were set as a contrafact of Tallis’s Gaude gloriosa Dei mater. The work will be performed at St John’s Smith Square London on Good Friday (14 April 2017). David Skinner says: ‘These discoveries are not only significant for cultural historians, but also fundamentally challenge...
