Grammys Producer Ken Ehrlich “Surprised” By Ariana Grande’s Epic Clapback About Why She’s Not Performing

Ariana Grande and the producer of the Grammy Awards, Ken Ehrlich, are embroiled in something like a beef right now.Ariana was scheduled to perform at the 2019 Grammys, but on Tuesday (Feb. 5)—less than a week before the live show—Variety reported that she would neither be performing at nor attending Sunday’s (Feb. 10) ceremony due to a “disagreement” with Grammy producers over what songs she’d perform during her set.An insider told Variety that Grande felt “insulted” after producers undermined h...

Soul Serenade: Big Mama Thornton, “Hound Dog”

Elvis Presley has been accused of cultural appropriation. Whether you believe that or not, there is no doubt that one of his breakthrough singles was a song called “Hound Dog” that he released in 1956. The thing is, the original version of the same song had been a hit, albeit a smaller one, for Big Mama Thornton three years earlier. But it’s not that simple because “Hound Dog” was written by Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller, two white songwriters. It’s probably fair to say that many people who boug...

The Tie-Dye Manicure Is The Grooviest Nail-Art Trend Of 2019

From holographic and heart-embellished to chic, understated ombré, this year is already rife with inventive new nail-art trends... and we're only a week into February. But for all the Valentine's Day-ready designs and negative-space French tips out there, there's one other bold look in particular we've got our eyes on right now — and it's very 1969-meets-1999-meets-2019.Tie-dye designs might conjure up images of Janis Joplin in a technicolor dress at Woodstock, or maybe the fluorescent tees we ...

NAMM 2019: Peter Frampton honored at the 34th annual TEC Awards on Saturday

The trophy had barely been handed to Peter Frampton when the guitarist and singer announced at National Association of Music Merchants Show in Anaheim on Saturday night that instead of talking about his acclaimed career he wanted to talk about Les Paul, the man for whom this lifetime achievement award is named. “For a guitarist, for any serious musician, really, any association with Les Paul is a privilege and an honor,” Frampton told the audience of music industry professionals gathered for the...

NAMM 2019: Four who worked with Prince talk about what made him a legend

Morris Hayes was Prince’s musical director and New Power Generation keyboardist for years, but it took a little time to figure out the mercurial musical genius at first, he said Saturday during a panel at the NAMM Show on Prince and what made who and what he was. “I’ll put it to you like this,” Hayes said in response to a question about how Prince ran his rehearsals. “What I figured out was that there were five of them, five Princes. Rehearsal depends on which one showed up today. “The day befor...

NAMM 2019: Phil Collen of Def Leppard draws a big crowd of fans old and new

The line of maybe 300 fans stretched a walkway where security guards barked orders to keep moving as soon as you got your autograph and a photo, but Phil Collen, guitarist for the hard rock band Def Leppard, seemed intent to give everyone at least a quick moment of his time. They’re the reason, after all, that his band was voted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year, said Collen, a longtime resident of Laguna Hills, standing next to a Jackson Guitars display of the new Phil Collen signat...

NAMM 2019: She Rocks Awards honor Lisa Loeb, Terri Nunn, the late Janis Joplin and many more women Friday

Thirty years ago when Dale Krevens co-founded Tech 21 she remembers coming to the National Association of Music Merchants show and being mistaken for a booth model, a pretty face to attract the mostly male attendees into the amplifier company’s space on the exhibition hall floor. “Obviously it’s more widely accepted now,” she said on the red carpet of the She Rocks Awards at the House of Blues in Anaheim on Friday. “People don’t raise their eyebrows like, ‘Oh, what’s she doing here?’ “They talk ...

Laura Jean Anderson ‘Call It What It Is’

I really like Call It What It Is by Laura Jean Anderson. Think Janis Joplin meets Patsy Cline. Before the  LA based musician was releasing a string of rootsy singles, she was busking on the streets of Peru.  That’s true love of art.  While winning Support from NPR, Noisey, Salon, and Fader – Lauren’s aim is to pay homage to her personal heroes in the tradition of storytelling.  She notes, ” I am such a lover of old music but love when a contemporary artist strikes my heart. I love what Alabama ...

Big Brother & The Holding Company Find 'Sex, Dope & Cheap Thrills'

None Fifty years ago, Big Brother & The Holding Company with lead singer Janis Joplin released their seminal record Cheap Thrills. The album was a runaway success and made Joplin a star because of her earthshaking renditions of such songs as George and Ira Gershwin's "Summertime", Big Mama Thornton's "Ball and Chain", and Jerry Ragovoy and Bert Berns' "Piece of My Heart". That music is still available today for streaming or purchase at many sites. This is something different.To celebrate the an...

Woodstock 50th anniversary festival

The town of Bethel , about 90 miles from New York City, was the original site of the Woodstock Festival in 1969. By some estimates, 400,000 people attended the original event, which featured artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, and Janis Joplin. In 2019, a three-day music festival will take place at the same site to mark the 50th anniversary of the legendary event. The event will be called the Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival, and will take place on August 16-18, 2019 at the Be...

Eric, Nat and Sarah

In The Wall Street Journal this week, I interviewed chef Eric Ripert on growing up in France (go here).

John, Melvyn and Wanda

In The Wall Street Journal this week, I interviewed men's clothing designer and retailer John Varvatos for my "House Call" column in the Mansion section (go here). His designs always seem torn from the pages of rock magazines. John was born in a working-class suburb of Detroit and grew up listening to rock and thumbing through fan magazines. Which is how he developed an eye for the singular fashion trends of rock stars. After stints working for Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, and time spent a...

The Outsiders: Lou Reed, Hunter S. Thompson, and Frank Zappa Reveal Themselves in Captivatingly Animated Interviews

Lou Reed thought the Beatles were garbage. Or at least he did when he started out in music, as he reveals in a 1987 interview. "We had an ambition and a goal: to elevate the rock song and take it where it hadn't been before," he says of his first band — perhaps you've heard of them — the Velvet Underground. "I just thought the other stuff couldn't even come up to our ankles," he adds. "They were just painfully stupid and pretentious. When they did try to get 'arty,' it was worse than stu...

Mac Miller Never Wanted To Be Part Of The 27 Club

On his 2015 album, GO:OD AM, Mac Miller dropped a verse that, now, is quite tragic. In “Brand Name” he raps: "To everyone who sell me drugs / Don't mix it with that bullshit / I'm hoping not to join the 27 Club / Just want the coke dealer house with the velvet rug.” It’s one of many mentions of his drug use across his body of work, but it’s that comment about the 27 Club, a group of artists including Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, and Janis Joplin, that is agonizing. Miller passed away at 26 of a ...
