  • Bernie Worrell, 'Wizard Of Woo,' Dies At 72

    06/25/2016 9:04:13 AM PDT · by nickcarraway · 15 replies
    NPR ^ | June 24, 2016
    Keyboardist and composer Bernie Worrell, who helped shape the sound of the band Parliament-Funkadelic and influenced countless artists across a wide range of genres, died Friday at 72. Worrell announced earlier this year that he had been diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer. His musical life began early — according to his official biography, he started studying piano at age 3, wrote his first concerto at age 8 and performed with the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C., at 10. The classically trained keyboardist (he studied at Juilliard and the New England Conservatory of Music) made his name — and an...

    In the movie “High Fidelity,” John Cusack’s character owns a record store in Chicago. In one scene he turns off a mix tape made by one of his employees because it’s too loud and in your face. When the employee says he should go back and play Cusack’s “old sad bastard music,” Cusack replies, “I don’t wanna hear old sad bastard music, Barry, I just want something I can ignore.”That’s really what most of the music in our lives is – something you don’t realize is there, but you’d miss it if it were gone. And if some music publishers...

    The Dixie Chicks have never been known for their conservative views. In fact, they used to be some of the most outspoken liberal voices in country music. Back in 2003, just days before the Iraq war, lead singer Natalie Maines told a crowd in London: “We don’t want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas” Now they’re taking shots at another Republican- this time a little more subtly:

    DETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) - There is a growing movement with Christianity calling for greater acceptance of homosexuality. It is voicing itself differently depending on whether its of a Protestant or Catholic stripe, but it is increasing. Although diverging, for the time being, over the question of any sexual activity being immoral, both Protestant and Catholics who identify as gay are doing what they can to move the needle to a greater acceptance of homosexuality in general among followers and adherents. Within the Protestant world, a number of big name musicians continue a parade of announcing they are gay. The most recent...

    Canadian musicians The Weeknd and Belly decided Wednesday that protesting Donald Trump was more important than publicity. The duo was set to perform Belly’s hit “Might Not,” a song about excess and drawbacks, on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” but balked at the idea of sharing the studio with GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump. Belly, who is Muslim, said in a statement to the Associated Press that Trump’s proposed ban on Muslim immigration could potentially limit his ability to perform in America. “For me, being Muslim and being somebody that appreciates my access here in America, I love the fact that I’m...

    Legendary artist Billy Joel gave a nod to Donald Trump at his Madison Square Garden concert in New York on Friday, TIME magazine reported. Joel dedicated his song “The Entertainer” to the presumptive Republican nominee, as he has reportedly done at previous concerts in recent months. Haters were quick to speculate that he was mocking Trump, and Joel did little to clear that up in his email statement to TIME on Saturday. “I’m in the entertainment business. Donald Trump’s campaign has been very entertaining,” Joel told TIME. “Aside from that, who cares about the political opinions of a piano player?”

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...

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.

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...
