    Variety ^ | September 15, 2016 | Matt Hurwitz
    The Beatles were always breaking new ground, and on August 15, 1965, they did so again by essentially creating the stadium tour, as detailed in Ron Howard’s new doc on the band’s years on the road, “Eight Days a Week.” On that date, the group played before a record crowd of 55,600 at the then-brand new William A Shea Municipal Stadium in Queens, NY. The event was filmed for posterity by their manager, Brian Epstein, and Ed Sullivan’s Sullivan Productions for a television special, a 30 minute edit of which, representing most of the concert, can be seen exclusively in...

    Rolling Stone ^ | July 27, 2017 | Jon Blistein
    Mick Jagger unveiled two politically charged new songs, "England Lost" and "Get a Grip." The Rolling Stones singer said he penned the tracks in response to the "anxiety [and] unknowability of the changing political situation." He added, "We obviously have a lot of problems. So am I politically optimistic? … No."

    Washington Post ^ | 6/22/17 | Geoff Edgers
    The convention couldn’t sound less rock-and-roll — the National Association of Music Merchants Show. But when the doors open at the Anaheim Convention Center, people stream in to scour rows of Fenders, Les Pauls and the oddball, custom-built creations such as the 5-foot-4-inch mermaid guitar crafted of 15 kinds of wood. Standing in the center of the biggest, six-string candy store in the United States, you can almost believe all is well within the guitar world. Except if, like George Gruhn, you know better. The 71-year-old Nashville dealer has sold guitars to Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Paul McCartney and Taylor...

    Bill Haley & His Comets - Rock Around The Clock (1955) HD Bill Haley & His Comets was an American Rock&Roll band founded in 1952 that continued playing until Haley's death in 1981. The band was the earliest group of white musicians to bring Rock&Roll to the attention of white America and the rest of the world. From late 1954 to1956, the group placed nine singles into the Top 20 and three more in the Top Ten. Many fans consider them to be as revolutionary in their time as The Beatles or the Rolling Stones were a decade or two...

    Rock and politics… what hath Charlie Daniels wrought?While the whining lyrics of Elton John, Green Day, Sting and Bruce Springsteen dominate the charts when it comes to political songs making their way to the charts, there have been more than a few that managed to work their way into the hearts of conservitarians everywhere.While most of the tunes on this list are openly and unashamedly jingoistic, a few have managed over time and circumstances to easily fall into the small government and/or flat-out nationalistic leanings of many Rock fans.In no particular order;

    Citing “overwhelming demand,” rock and roll musician Kid Rock recently started selling Donald Trump-themed apparel. One of three T-shirts tied to the president-elect depicts a post-election map with Republican states labeled “United States of America” and Democratic states labeled “Dumbf—istan.” Another features the words “God, Guns & Trump.” The third includes an image of Trump along with a crude message directed at his opponents. The hat, which is a spinoff of Trump’s signature “Make America Great Again” cap, reads “Make America Badass Again.” The items are available through Kid Rock’s online store. (Warning: Some items feature vulgar language.) Related VideoBoone...

    Joe Corre — the son of Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren and designer Vivienne Westwood — put $6.5 million worth of his dad’s punk memorabilia in a boat and lit it on fire, all to make a point. Corre told the crowd at the River Thames that “punk was never, never meant to be nostalgic — and you can’t learn how to be one at a Museum of London workshop.”

(OPAQUE MELODIES THAT WOULD BUG MOST PEOPLE) As a lifelong musician who has always been into stuff that's a little out of the ordinary I thought I'd post this wonderful instrumental from Frank Zappa from the album "Chunga's Revenge" released in Oct 1970. Great album from my extensive collection. One of my many favs from FZ. Enjoy... Or don't it's completely up to you.

    THE Republican Party is really trying to sell us on the rock ’n’ roll theme of this year’s convention... (Cleveland) It is also the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which is on point with an exhibit, “Louder Than Words: Rock, Power and Politics,” about the intersection of rock and politics... Max Espinosa, the exhibit’s curator, admitted that the biggest challenge of putting it together was reconciling the fact that many of the featured musicians don’t like the Republican Party’s agenda. “Rock and roll is a lefty medium,” he said... ...a Frank Zappa quote: “Rock music was...

    Last month, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan spoke on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' Info Wars radio show about how he thinks “liberal social justice warriors” are kind of like Maoists and the Ku Klux Klan. Yesterday (May 11), the Info Wars online talk show premiered another segment of its conversation with Corgan. This time, the interview veered into the 2016 election (among -- trust us -- many, many other topics). Host Lee Ann McAdoo introduced him as “musical icon and great patriot Billy Corgan,” and he certainly went to work.
