    If you had told 12-year-old me that one day I would be able to listen to pretty much any song I wanted to on demand and also pull up the lyrics as fast as I could type the artist’s name and part of the title into a text box, I would have a) really hoped you weren’t kidding and b) would have wanted to grow up even faster than I already did. The availability of music today, especially in any place with first world Internet access is really kind of astounding. While the technology to make this possible has come...

    Sir Paul McCartney has talked candidly about the depression he suffered after The Beatles broke up, confessing he considered giving up music altogether. Speaking to BBC Radio 4's Mastertapes, he said he had been at a loss when the band fell apart in acrimony in 1970. "It was difficult to know what to do after The Beatles. How do you follow that?" ... The Beatles officially split in 1970 with the release of Let It Be, but the seeds of their demise were sown a year earlier, when the band appointed Allen Klein as their manager, against Sir Paul's wishes...

    This would likely be an easier column to write if I were more familiar with the life and work of Beyonce’, but even I know that she’s a very popular singer with significant music sales and well attended concerts. In terms of the latter revenue stream, events of that magnitude always require security staff on hand to keep the rowdy fans under control and that’s a thriving business in America. What’s less often discussed is the fact that off duty police officers frequently take such jobs and do their moonlighting work with the full blessing of their bosses. It’s not...

    Beastie Boys original member John Berry has died, according to a report. He was 52. Berry, who is credited with coming up with the band’s name, died on Thursday in hospice care at a facility in Danvers, Massachusetts at 7:30 a.m., Rolling Stone reports. The musician's father, John Berry III, told the magazine that his son had battled frontal lobe dementia, which had gotten worse in the past few months. When the band formed in 1981, Berry played as the guitarist, before leaving the group in 1982 after performing on the band's first EP Polly Wog Stew. While Berry was...

    "One of our Submarines" is a song by British new wave/synth pop musician Thomas Dolby. The song was recorded in August 1982 and remains a favorite among Thomas Dolby fans. Originally written for The Thompson Twins, the track was released in a 12" extended version (found on the successful 1982 "Blinded by Science" EP) clocking in at 7:18, as well as in the album version found on The Golden Age of Wireless. The inspiration for the song was Dolby's late uncle, who died as a submarine crewman during World War II. The submarine that his uncle served on sank due...

    Wilmette police confirm O'Connor went on a bike ride Sunday at 6 a.m. and did not return. Earlier this month, Arsenio Hall filed a $5 million defamation lawsuit against O'Connor for claiming that the comedian supplied drugs to Prince. The lawsuit calls O'Connor's accusations "despicable, fabricated lies" and adds that "O'Connor is now known perhaps as much for her bizarre, unhinged Internet rants as for her music." O'Connor, whose biggest hit was a 1990 reworking of the Prince song "Nothing Compares 2 U," posted on her Facebook page about a week after Prince's death that he was a "long time...

    Daryl Hall is possibly the most interesting man in music. He and John Oates form the most successful musical duo of all time, and even though, their setlists during sold out shows around the world are full of instantly recognizable hits from the 1970s and ‘80s, they are not a nostalgia act. More than other performers in their age bracket, including The Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen, Daryl Hall and John Oates have constructed a coalition of baby boomers who remember where they were when “Rich Girl” or “Sara Smile” first hit the radio, and thirty and twenty-something fans who...

    Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne are going their separate ways. A source close to the Osbournes tells ET that the 67-year-old rock legend and the 63-year-old "The Talk" co-host are ending their marriage after more than 33 years. The estranged couple, who wed on July 4, 1982, share three children together: Aimee, 32, Kelly, 31, and Jack, 30. Sharon first met Ozzy in the 1970s when his band, Black Sabbath, was rising to fame and later became his manager. In 2013, Sharon emphatically denied divorce rumors during a taping of "The Talk," but confirmed Ozzy's sobriety struggles at the time. "He's...

Vivaldi loved to go up and down the musical scale, varying the theme a half step at a time.Ah, Vivaldi, he’s right up there with Handel, Bach, and Mozart! I consider him to be an especially Catholic treasure given his large body of sacred Latin liturgical music.Here are...

For more reference, check out The Vengeful One. Off their new album. Same character with the shiny teeth (not like Biden's). Same motivation. New Disturbed is just as tasty and just as crunchy as the old Disturbed. Perfect timing.

    The mothers of Trayvon Martin and and Michael Brown are featured in Beyonce's new album, which was released on Jay-Z's Tidal streaming service on Saturday night after an HBO special promoting it. Lemonade is the title of both the singer's first album in three years, and the 'visual album' which aired on HBO to promote it. And the singer continued to lace her work with a political message, as well as hitting out at her husband Jay-Z amid rumors of infidelity while ultimately appearing to forgive him.
