In Florida, the Broward County sheriff's office said that XXXTentacion, 20, was shot while leaving a motor sports dealership in Deerfield Beach, about 40 miles (64 km) north of Miami.

    In case you needed another reason to feel far older than you actually are, a new survey by music streaming platform Deezer, via NME, suggests that by the time you hit 30, you reach something called “musical paralysis.” That means 30-year-olds have hit the threshold when they no longer seek out new music, or are open to listening to something new and beyond their established taste.... Survey participants gave various reasons for just why they’ve checked out of the music scene, mostly citing having children and too demanding a job to keep up with what’s new. A considerable 65 per...

    Happy Father's Day to you and yours. I miss my dad more as the years go by. He was very sick at the end, and I think it takes a while after death for the final grim stage to fade and for the departed to be restored to memory as they were in their prime. When I was a kid, he liked to sing along to this whenever it came on the radio, even though neither my sister nor I were much like the girl and boy in the song. Which is kind of the point of the number. This...

    CALGARY, June 12, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A pair of music researchers have invented a musical instrument designed to be played by a preborn child in the womb.

Jaap Van Zweden continued to make an absolute killing in Dallas – can New York Philharmonic even afford him? Riccardo Muti crossed the $3 million threshold in Chicago and Michael Tilson Thomas is doing well in SanFran with his long-service bonuses. Here’s the score that really matters: what maestros make in annual compensation in the top 10 Orchestras in the US – 1 Dallas Symphony: $3,642,804 2 Chicago Symphony: $3,046,137 3 San Francisco Symphony: $2,600,275 4 Los Angeles Philharmonic:...

    Kid Rock will rally with U.S. Army combat veteran John James, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Michigan, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned. The announcement comes after Rock, a Michigan native, contemplated a Senate bid for several months before announcing he would not run in October. Rock later signaled early support for James when he invited him to sit court-side at a Detroit Pistons game in January. “Kid Rock’s appearance on stage with John James would be a game changer if he formally endorses,” Matt Frendewey, a former spokesperson for the Michigan Republican Party, told TheDCNF. “If...

  • Pop star David Cassidy said he lied about dementia, drinking

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Former teen idol David Cassidy did not have dementia, as he claimed before he died, and lied about giving up drinking, the singer told the makers of a documentary about him in the months before his death. Cassidy, 67, who shot to fame in the 1970s TV show "The Partridge Family," died of organ failure at age 67 in Florida in November 2017, nine months after declaring he was fighting dementia in a bid to stave off reports about odd behaviour. But in an excerpt released on Wednesday from documentary "David Cassidy: The Last Session," Cassidy...

    During African-American Music Appreciation Month, we celebrate the tremendous achievements and contributions of African-American musicians. The musical ingenuity of talented African American artists laid the foundation for so many recognizable and cherished genres of music, including rock and roll, rhythm and blues, jazz, gospel, hip hop, and rap. Throughout our history, African-American music has demonstrated its power to elicit comfort, healing, happiness, conviction, and inspiration — as well as its ability to unite people of all backgrounds. Today, it resonates in jazz quartets, rock and roll guitar solos, gospel choirs, and hip hop beats. The expression of these artistic and...

    I was able to pull this vintage RCA record player and some vinyl. There were a few packs of needles too. The previous owner(s) seemed to take care of it. It needs some maintenance and some fresh grease. I found a lot of technical advice for this model. It was missing a crank handle. There is a fellow out there that makes reproduction handles. I rolled the footage over the weekend and slapped this edit together earlier this morning. When I get a macro lens and some maintenance pulled, I'll do another.
