'He didn't even pretend to let us win'… Growing up with the world's biggest stars, by their children

The sons and daughters of John Wayne, John Lennon, Caitlyn Jenner and others tell us what it was like to grow up with a world-famous dadA lot of the happy memories of my father are from the late 1960s at Kenwood, the old Tudor house we had in Surrey, when I was a little boy. Without knowing it, I probably saw some of the greatest musicians in the world come and go through that house. Continue reading...

John Lennon called this song "one of the greatest strange records"

Rosie and the Originals' "Angel Baby" (1960) is a classic doo wop ballad, beloved (and covered) by John Lennon. Lennon was a fan of the flipside of that record too, "Give Me Love," but only because it's wonderfully awful. From Jonathan Cott's book Days That I Remember: Spending Time with John Lennon & Yoko Ono: "This is really one of the greatest strange records,” [Lennon] remarked. “It's all just out of beat, and everyone misses it. The A side was the hit, 'Angel Baby'— which is one o...

In ways that she couldn't have possibly anticipated, Gal Gadot gave the world a great gift last week.

Check Out Lingua Ignota’s Sick Remix Of Gal Gadot & Friends’ “Imagine” Cover

What was your first thought when you watched Gal Gadot and her ragtag band of quarantined celebrity friends covering John Lennon's "Imagine"? OK, second thought, after "imagine if we just didn't do this." Was it "harsh noise remix when?" If so, you're in luck, because experimental musician Kristin Hayter, aka Lingua Ignota, has … More »

Meet the Liverbirds, Britain’s First Female (and Now Forgotten) Rock Band

We never ever got as famous as the Beatles. But we started as friends, and we ended as friends. —Sylvia Saunders, The Liverbirds’ drummer John Lennon (a member of a band who in a parallel universe might’ve been billed as the male Liverbirds) announced that the all-female quartet would fail, a deeply inaccurate prediction. The band got a lot of attention, toured with The Kinks and The Rolling Stones, dismissed Brian Epstein when he pooh-poohed their desire to play in Hamburg, rejected an ...

'Meat Bones Chemicals Electricity' Is Eamon Ra's Love Letter to '60s Psych-Pop

But despite the occasional existence-pondering, Nordquist is all too happy just making good, classic pop music. The lyrics – also another throwback, on a thematic level – are almost maddeningly positive. On the winsome "Kiss Someone You Love", he sings, "The train station agent / Announcing from above / Said they don't know when you're coming back / So kiss someone you love." On the bluesy, lazy "Fun to Be Had" – which sounds like Andy Partridge channeling John Lennon – Nordquist is in total g...

Mac Miller’s Posthumous Album Circles Is a Heartbreaking Plea For Inner Peace

There were times when it seemed like Mac Miller would never stop rapping. At his peak, he was an indefatigable creative force who wrote and recorded hundreds of verses stuffed with cocksure bravado, unending internal rhyme schemes and sly double entendres. These verses were volleyed off onto grandiose Billboard-topping studio albums, knotty mixtapes scavenged by backpack rap nerds, or the projects of his countless collaborators at a breathtaking rate. Miller, born Malcolm James McCormic...

50 moments from 1970 that shaped entertainment and pop culture

This was 1970, the dawn of the Seventies, and with it the world welcomed Joni Mitchell’s “Ladies of the Canyon,” Disney’s “The Aristocats” and “Broom-Hilda,” a comic strip that blew the lid off the secret life of a centuries-old husband-hunting cigar-smoking witch. Also, the American Motor Corporation introduced its weird little subcompact the Gremlin on April 1, a joke that practically writes itself. There were goodbyes, too, in 1970. Motown star Tammi Terrell, who often sang duets with Marvin ...

50 years ago, these were the No. 1 albums and singles of 1970

The calendar said the 1960s were over, but you wouldn’t have known it from the 11 albums that reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts in 1970. There, the sounds of the decade in which rock and roll stormed the mainstream and pushed aside the remnants of Fifties pop music, still ruled supreme. Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel were the kings of the scene as the ’70s began. Simon & Garfunkel’s farewell album, “Bridge Over Troubled Water” was the top-selling album of the year. Its title track was the top-...

20 most memorable Southern California concerts of 2019

Though 2109 was filled with festivals, intimate one-off performances and major tours coming through Southern California, it was also a year with many farewell jaunts. We said goodbye to Elton John as he came through the area with several evenings of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, Peter Frampton made a couple of local stops on his Peter Frampton Finale: The Farewell Tour and the almighty Slayer went out in a blaze of glory with two final shows at The Forum.

It Bears Repeating: Why Repetition In Music Is A Good Thing

While on of the main complaints about satellite and broadcast radio is that the same songs get played over and over again, numbers suggest there's a major disconnect between what people say they don't want, and what they actually enjoy listening to, and that musical repetition is actually a good thing. ______________________________ Guest post by Fred Jacobs of Jacobs Media Strategies One of the biggest knocks on broadcast radio – once we get past “too many commercials” – is music re...

A Fan’s Notes: Rick Barry, “No Such Luck (Surprise, Surprise)” (Exclusive Single Premiere)

Rick Barry enjoys working in his garden. Sometimes it seems that he’s happier getting his hands in the dirt than he is getting his hands on a guitar. And yet, he still manages to gift us periodically with some new music. The New Jersey-based singer/songwriter was a Grand Prize winner in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for his song “Courage For a Rainy Day” and he was also awarded second place in the same contest for “Graphic Narrative.” Both songs appeared on his debut album Declaration of C...

How the Vietnam War Shaped Classic Rock–And How Classic Rock Shaped the War

There are a handful of popular songs that have become cliche and shorthand for filmmakers wishing to take us back to the trauma of the Vietnam War: Jimi Hendrix’s cover of Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower” or Edwin Starr’s “War,” to name two. Yet at the same time, while classic rock lives forever, memories or lessons of Vietnam have not. Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth” originally was a comment on the Sunset Strip Curfew (anti-war) riots, but now its meaning is open ended eno...

The Popdose Interview: Howard Jones

He’s been releasing albums on a fairly consistent basis since the beginning of his career, but for the first time in a long time, it feels like timing is on Howard Jones’ side. There’s a Republican in the White House – just like there was during Jones’ entire chart run from 1983 to 1992 – and the world is in desperate need of Jones’ trademark eternal optimism, which we’re pleased to say has not waned one bit.  Armed with a new album Transform, which features three collaborations with electronic...

A Guide To Lady Gaga's Massive Tattoo Collection

Long before Lady Gaga (née Stefani Germanotta) landed a Las Vegas residency, she was performing in dive bars in New York wearing nothing but handmade bedazzled bras and fishnet stockings. Since then, she's become known for embracing her body in all its forms — along with the tattoos that cover it.Gaga's ink might be particularly buzzy right now (especially because one of her latest may or may not be a subtle tribute to A Star Is Born co-star Bradley Cooper), but the star has actually had most o...

David Lee Roth explains jazz using The Beatles.

The Van Halen frontman was asked by Joe Rogan to explain jazz:“…We will do it in the old Beatles style, here is the best way to go for somebody that’s interested [in Jazz]. The old Lennon note and McCartney note. The McCartney note is always kinda happy... There’s a darkness among those last three notes. That’s where you get a little bit of pepper in the chocolate, ya know. It’s a little wistful, a little melancholy and when you put them together it doesn’t sound like they do but if I could I wo...
