CAPONE'S ROCK MAFIA CHARITY RIDERS
Nope, that’s not a gimmick, it’s totally true. Metallica is offering free mp3 downloads in celebration of the anniversary of their classic album – Master of Puppets.
It’s official,… because it was on Facebook..
You can download their entire September 21st, 1986 concert at The Hammersmith Odeon in London, England.
Do it, do it now.
For many people, Paul Williams is the guy they just found out worked with Daft Punk on their hit album. To many of the rest of us, he’s the musician who made a fortune writing and producing tunes for decades. What you may not know is that he is also the president and chairman of ASCAP who celebrates their 100 year anniversary today.
If you are a working musician, band, or songwriter, ASCAP may very well be the source of your bread and butter. You see, ASCAP stands for the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.
Everything is coming up Beatles these days. 50th anniversary for this, for that, for everything… and they deserve it. Well, here is a piece of memorabilia that you might just want.. to wear.. out.. in public.. like a boss.
The jackets worn by the Beatles in the film Help! are going up for auction. You might remember seeing them on the jacket of the soundtrack. Indeed they are cool, although they do look a lot like the artful Dodger in them.
Be aware, these gems might just attract Lady Gaga, who could adorn them with a meat bikini. How nice.
Queen’s greatest hits album has hit a landmark moment across the pond. They became the first act to sell 6 million of an album.
If your like me, your thinking “What? Only 6 million? Really?!”
And you would be right to think so.
But what about Dark Side of the Moon? Nope.
Led Zeppelin? Nope.
The Beatles? Nope.
In fact, the next runner up is Abba.
It was a shame when the Crossroads left the Chicago venues and headed to the East coast, mostly because I was unable to go. I did, however, pick up the Blu-ray as soon as it came out and I was not disappointed. The music is amazing, the talent unbelievable, and as expected it turned out to be a rare night of great performances.
