AI Software Creates “New” Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, Doors & Amy Winehouse Songs: Hear Tracks from the “Lost Tapes of the 27 Club”

What would pop music sound like now if the musicians of the 27 club had lived into maturity? Can we know where Amy Winehouse would have gone, musically, if she had taken another path? What if Hendrix’s influence over guitar heroics (and less obvious styles) came not only from his sixties playing but from an unimaginable late-career cosmic blues? Whether questions like these can ever be given real flesh and blood, so to speak, by artificial intelligence may still be very much undecided. O...

These AI-made songs channel the spirit of Cobain and Hendrix

Tribute bands are great because even if you might not be able to see your favorite artists live, they recreate that magic to some extent. But what if that tribute band is an AI? Over The Bridge, a Canada-based non-profit that helps musicians with mental health, has started a new AI-powered project called Lost Tapes of the 27 Club. The organization is using machine learning to break down songs of artists who died at 27, including Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Amy Winehouse, and Kurt Kobain — and co...

From the College of Rock and Roll Knowledge page on Facebook: The Jimi Hendrix Experience played at the London Astoria on March 31, 1967. Also on the bill were Cat Stevens, The Walker Brothers and Englebert Humperdink.

Michael Winslow, the “Man of 10,000 Sound Effects”, Impersonates the Sounds of Jimi Hendrix’s and Led Zeppelin’s Electric Guitars with His Voice

Even if you weren’t a huge fan of the Police Academy movies, there was one character that made them watchable: Larvell Jones, played by Michael Winslow, “The Man of a 10,000 Sound Effects.” His character is a sort of oddball presence throughout the series, whose ability to sound like a siren, a machine gun, a guard dog, or any number of things, invariably helps his team save the day. He’s been the only consistent character through all eight entries of the movie series, a brief television...

Guitarist Gary Clark, Jr. Plays Searing Acoustic Blues in a Spontaneous Jam Session

Guitarist, singer, and songwriter Gary Clark, Jr. was “supposed to save the blues,” writes Geoff Edgers at The Washington Post. That’s a lot of weight to hang on the shoulders of a musician born in 1984. Clark grew up in Austin, Texas listening to Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Green Day, and Nirvana. He’s been onscreen in John Sayles’ Honeydripper, played Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival, and played alongside his hero B.B. King. His ringing tone recalls King, his searing lea...

What a 'bumping' incident 33 years ago says about the US Navy's future showdowns with Russia and China

Soviet frigate SKR-6 strikes USS Caron in the Black Sea, February 12, 1988. US Navy On February 12, 1988, two Soviet frigates "bumped" two US warships in the Black Sea. The incident was the result of US challenges to what it saw as excessive Soviet maritime claims. The US now faces similar tension with Russia and China, and the risk of "bumping" or worse is growing. Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories. A close encounter between US and Soviet warships in the Black Sea mor...

Folk music matriarch Ellen Harper of Claremont finds there’s ‘Always a Song’

Folk music is meant to bring ordinary people together, and so when Ellen Harper was writing her memoir, she assumed a publicity tour would kick off at her family’s store, the Folk Music Center in Claremont. She could read from her book, take questions, perform a few songs. Instead her tour is being done remotely from the store, including an interview with NPR’s Terry Gross for “Fresh Air.” To pull that off the 73-year-old had to buy a new smartphone that would accommodate the required app. Durin...

Jimi Hendrix Revisits His Searing Performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner”: The Dick Cavett Show (September 9, 1969)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGf9PTYyJ4A On the final August morning of Woodstock, after a previous day’s downpour had turned most of the field near the stage into mud, after an evening of blues and rock and the comedown of whatever drugs had peaked everybody earlier, as the sunlight crept over what was left of the 500,000 music lovers, now less than half in number, wrapped in blankets and still vibing, Jimi Hendrix took the stage. Now, the Star-Spangled Banner wasn’t his final song, ...

Jimi Hendrix’s Home Audio System & Record Collection Gets Recreated in His London Flat

Future Allegedly Offered Woman $20K for Abortion to Stop Her From Being His 9th (or 10th) Baby Mama

Future has a lot of kids and a lot of baby mamas to match, so it’s no surprise that he recently offered to pay a woman off to terminate her pregnancy. Allegedly, of course. A woman who is said to be an Instagram model recently leaked text messages between herself and Future showing that the fertile rapper offered her a large sum of cash—$20K to be exact—to get an abortion after she revealed to him that she was pregnant with what would be his ninth (possibly 10th) child. “Last thing u need to wor...

The Legend of How Bluesman Robert Johnson Sold His Soul to the Devil at the Crossroads

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaKkzNqCPnc We remember the bluesman Robert Johnson as the Jimi Hendrix of the 1930s, a guitarist of staggering skill who died before age thirty. Both found mainstream success, but Johnson’s came posthumously: in fact, his music and Hendrix’s first music hit it big in the same decade, the 1960s. King of the Delta Blues Singers, an album of Johnson’s songs released by Columbia Records in 1961, had a great influence on the likes of Bob Dylan, Keith Richards,...

#TrackoftheDay: “Voodoo Woman”

Curtis KnightUSA (1961) Image: Curtis Knight Fan Club/Facebook. I had somehow missed the Jimi Hendrix connection with Curtis Knight and instead I had gotten all of his solo recordings (not even with Knight’s band The Squires). But yeah, apparently a big part of Knight’s claim to fame was that he played with Hendrix for a bit before Hendrix left for England. Then there was much legal jostling as the recordings of those Hendrix/Knight sessions got released. The saga appears to be su...

How Science Fiction Formed Jimi Hendrix

“Through the entirety of his short life Jimi Hendrix was an avid fan of science fiction. As a young child Hendrix and his brother Leon would escape their troubled upbringing by dreaming up stories of far-off planets and flying saucers.” So begins the Polyphonic video above, an exploration of how sci-fi informed the apocalyptic images and spaced-out sounds in Hendrix’s songs. His love of science fiction “only intensified as an adult,” especially when Hendrix moved in with Chas Chandler, w...

The Only Time Prince & Miles Davis Jammed Together Onstage: Watch the New Year’s Eve, 1987 Concert

A too-precious genre of internet meme has departed public figures who did not know each other in life meeting in heaven with hugs, high-fives, and wincingly earnest exchanges. These sentimental vignettes are almost too easy to parody, a kitschy version of the “what if” game, as in: what if two creative geniuses could collaborate in ways they never did before they died? What if John Lennon had formed a band with Eric Clapton—as Lennon himself had once proposed? Or what if a Jimi Hendrix/M...

Watch Rare Footage of Jimi Hendrix Performing “Voodoo Child” in Maui, Plus a Trailer for a New Documentary on Jimi Hendrix’s Legendary Maui Performances (1970)

In June of 1969, the original Jimi Hendrix Experience, the band that introduced the sixties to its reigning guitar god, disbanded for good with the departure of Noel Redding following a messy Denver Pop Festival appearance. The story of that gig sounds so apocalyptic—involving heroin, riots, and tear gas—that it reads like cosmic foreshadowing of the tragedy to come: the decades' greatest psych-rockers go out in a haze of smoke. A little over one year later, Jimi is dead. But if he seeme...

Rare footage of Jimi Hendrix doing "Voodoo Child" on Maui, 1970

A few days ago, this video of Hendrix performing "Voodoo Child" on Maui in 1970 was loaded to YouTube. This is part of an upcoming November release of the legendary Maui concert that Hendrix did as part of the psychedelic train wreck of a film known as Rainbow Bridge. As far as I know, the complete concert footage has never been released. The Rainbow Bridge "soundtrack" that was released posthumously doesn't include anything actually recorded on Maui. This performance has always been something o...

Four Classic Prince Songs Re-Imagined as Pulp Fiction Covers: When Doves Cry, Little Red Corvette & More

There’s a book-lined Knowledge Room in the late Prince Rogers Nelson’s Paisley Park, but the Prince-inspired faux-books that artist Todd Alcott imagines are probably better suited to the estate's purple-lit Relaxation Room. The Knowledge Room was conceived of as a library where the world’s most famous convert to Jehovah’s Witnesses could delve into religious literature, reflect on the meaning of life, and study the Bible deep into the night. Alcott’s covers harken to an earlier stage in Prince’...

‘Horrorstör’: Movie Adaptation of Grady Hendrix’s Novel About a Haunted IKEA in the Works

IKEA seems like the perfect setting for a horror movie — an unending labyrinth of sleek, Swedish furniture from which there is no escape. So it’s no wonder that Grady Hendrix’s debut horror comedy novel Horrorstör, which centers on a haunted furniture superstore modeled off the Swedish company, was a hit. Now New Republic Pictures, which co-financed and produced the Oscar-winning 1917, is developing a Horrorstör movie with Hendrix set to adapt his own material. Deadline broke the news that Ne...
