Back in February, Paul McCartney pulled his entire solo and Wings catalog from streaming services such as Rhapsody and Spotify. However, he appears to have had a change of heart. Seattle Weekly is reporting that several of his albums are currently available to subscribers at two of the most popular sites around.
A classic concert by the Who previously available only on bootleg will soon get an official release. ‘The Who Live in Texas ’75,’ a document of their Nov. 20, 1975 concert at the Summit in Houston, will be out on DVD and digital video on Oct. 9 — which, coincidentally, would have been bassist John Entwistle’s 68th birthday.
Artists are rarely the best judges of their own material. How many times have we cringed when a classic group we love releases a new album they claim is among their best ever? And how often are we privileged to hear outtakes that cause us to smack our heads, in disbelief that they were left off the original record?
With music festival cruises being all the rage these days, it makes sense that there would be a cruise dedicated to the most popular group of all-time. In March 2013, the Cruise for Beatles Fans will sail from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. on the sea of green for a week-long floating celebration of all things John, Paul, George and Ringo.
For the first time ever, fans of the Doors will be able to hear the entirety of their famous concert at the Hollywood Bowl on July 5, 1968. On Oct. 23, the band will release ‘Live at the Bowl ’68′ in both video (DVD, Blu-ray, digital) and audio (CD, LP, digital) formats.
Few people have lived out the sex, drugs and rock n’ roll lifestyle — and come out of it with his coolness intact — as thoroughly as Joe Perry. Now, the Aerosmith guitarist is planning to tell the world about what it’s like to be him. In a new interview, Perry revealed that he recently signed a deal to write his memoir with a tentative publishing date scheduled for the fall of 2013, and he vows to include plenty of good stuff.
Neil Young remains one of the most unpredictable men in rock music. At the opening show of his new tour with Crazy Horse in Albuquerque, N.M. on Friday (Aug. 3), he debuted six songs, yet only one of them was from his most recent album, ‘Americana.’ In addition, he also chose to leave ‘Albuquerque,’ from 1975′s ‘Tonight’s the Night’ off the evening’s agenda. That has to violate some unwritten setlist-making rule, right?
Back in 1976, when Capitol was looking for new ways to re-package the Beatles catalog to their millions of fans, the label released the two-volume ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Music.’ The LPs consisted of the some of the most raucous cuts from their incredible catalog and put hits like ‘Twist and Shout’ with lesser known songs like ‘I’m Down.’
The notion that Bruce Springsteen has never done drugs in his life has long been looked at with skepticism as a way of creating a myth of him as a clean-cut, all-American rocker. After all, he came of age in the mid ’60s, and his first album contains lyrics like, “Wizard imps and sweatshop pimps / Interstellar mongrel nymphs,” so something mind-altering had to have been inside his brain at some point, right?
