‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’ got some unusual treatment on Monday’s episode of ‘The Voice’ when Washington D.C. emcee Moses Stone faced off against Nashville country duo the Line with a dueling performance of the Rolling Stones classic. Mick Jagger obviously isn’t a coach on the show, but if he was we’d be curious to get his reaction to the showdown.
Journey‘s tear-jerker hit ‘Faithfully’ was the focus of a fierce battle round on Monday’s episode of ‘The Voice,’ when Tony Vincent and Justin Hopkins both took the stage for an emotional run-through of the tune that left coach Cee Lo Green with a difficult decision to make: Which singer would he send to the next round, and which would he send home?
Paul McCartney was one among the first winners at the 2012 Grammy Awards Sunday in Los Angeles, snagging the Best Historical Album honor during the pre-Grammy telecast. McCartney won as a compilation producer for the deluxe Paul McCartney Archive Collection edition of his former band Wings’ classic 1973 album, ‘Band On The Run.’ McCartney shared the honor with mastering engineers Sam Okell and Steve Rooke.
The 2012 Grammy Awards finally arrived Sunday night, and while classic rockers weren’t up for many awards on the big night, they were well represented onstage. Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and the Beach Boys all turned in top-shelf performances.
Paul McCartney hasn’t won over many people with the title of his latest album, ‘Kisses on the Bottom’ — especially not Brad Paisley. The country superstar went so far as to take to his Twitter account on Wednesday to send out a series of screeds against the name. “It’s only February, but Sir Paul is an absolute lock for worst album title of the year,” he wrote in one note. “Actually, maybe all time.”
‘American Idol’ alum Adam Lambert has blasted a reports that he has signed on to tour with Queen this summer. On Friday (Feb. 3), British newspaper The Daily Star claimed that the the legendary rockers would hit the autobahn for a headlining spot on this summer’s touring Sonisphere festival in Europe, with Lambert filling in for the late, great Freddie Mercury. But on Saturday, Lambert took to Twitter to say that the news wasn’t true and was the result of a simple misunderstanding.
Former Mountain guitarist Leslie West heroically rolled onto the stage of New York’s BB King Blues Club Tuesday night (Jan. 31) to perform in public for the first time since he was forced to have his lower right leg amputated as a result of diabetes complications.
Former Pink Floyd rocker Roger Waters has already announced a bunch of dates for his ‘The Wall’ North American summer trek, which is scheduled to kick off May 1 in Houston and run through a July 14 gig in Philadelphia. But one show that has not yet been revealed is a much-rumored stop at Boston’s Fenway Park, where ‘The Wall’ would fit in quite nicely next to the ballpark’s famed 37-foot-tall wall in left field known as the Green Monster. It almost seems like destiny that ‘The Wall’ would be performed next to the wall.
The Rolling Stones have issued the second concert from the Rolling Stones Archives, an official online portal to ”listen to unheard music, view unseen photographs and films, and look at rare merchandise” that the band created late last year. The latest offering, which was posted online yesterday (Jan. 31), is ‘Hampton Coliseum: Live 1981,’ a digital-only collection that documents the band’s Dec. 18, 1981, concert at the Hampton Coliseum in Hampton, Va.
When Bruce Springsteen was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility in 1999, he entered as a solo artist and without any members of his long-running backing cohorts, the E Street Band. It wasn’t really considered much of a slight at the time — the Boss, after all, certainly deserves to be in there on his own.
But more than a dozen of years have now passed without the band joining the hallowed and frequently controversial Hall, and some fans are beginning to wonder if they’ll ever make it — and if Bruce should’ve turned down the honor until E Street was at his side.
Neil Young currently is streaming a 38-minute audio collage of music on his official website, although when the recordings are from, who plays on them or what they are called is not clear.
