  • 79 Years Ago: Glen Campbell Is Born in Delight, Arkansas

    Happy birthday, Glen Campbell! The singer was born on this day, April 22, in 1936. Campbell was born the seventh of 12 children to John Campbell, a sharecropper, and his wife Carrie. After his uncle, known as “Boo,” taught Campbell to play the guitar as a child, the future star relocated to Albuquerque, N.M., as a teenager, to play in his uncle’s band. In 1958, Campbell formed his own band, the Western Wranglers, and in 1960, he relocated to Los Angeles to become a session musician. Campbell’s debut album, Big Bluegrass Special, was released in 1962 on Capitol Records, but...

All that aside, the real power of the song, which has enabled it find its way into the hearts of fans around the world, has always been Sledge's...

    A long, long time ago - to borrow the words of the song - Don McLean sat down to write the first lines of an epic. First released in 1971, American Pie is a classic that an entire generation memorised line by line, verse by verse. Fans around the world have argued over the true meaning of one of the most enigmatic songs in pop history. Faced with all the speculation, McLean's own response is defiantly down-to-earth: when people ask him what it means, he likes to reply, "It means I never have to work again." American Pie, famously covered...

    Rhythm isn't something most babies are born with. But this one - which is yet to be born - seems to have it in abundance. In this incredible video of an ultrasound scan, the 14-week-old foetus appears to clap its hands together, as the mother sings If You're Happy And You Know It Clap Your Hands. The parents can be heard laughing in the background as the doctor then rewinds the tape to make it look like that baby was clapping along to their singing. The 15-second video that was uploaded to YouTube yesterday by Jen Cardinal, who is based...

The hope is that Sen. Michael S. Lee (R.-Utah) will use his hearing, titled: “How Much For a Song?: The Antitrust Decrees that Govern the Market for Music,” to press put industry players on the record about their lobbying of Justice to rework the current royalty framework governing the relationship between...

Swift, who was named the world's sixth most powerful celebrity by Forbes magazine, has commendably performed numerous acts of charity since moving into her $20 million Tribeca residence last year, including visits with sick children at Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The age and cultural divide notwithstanding (she's 25, I'm not, and Elvis was my adolescent icon), I like Taylor Swift, but her money would have been better invested with much higher returns somewhere other than the dreadful New York City public schools, whose problems are...

Despite her determined efforts to look – and sound – youthful, the 56-year-old has been dropped from the station’s playlist that determines which songs are played by DJs during the day. Madonna’s latest song is Living For Love and has been available for airplay since December 20 last year.

The company started as a Los Angeles organ store, became a successful purveyor of guitars after the Beatles arrived in the United States, evolved into a national competitor over a period of decades, and shall finish, with sad poetry, as the symbol of everything dysfunctional about American corporate finance, management, and retail in the modern age.
