Rolling Stone is reporting that Adam Schlesinger, co-founder of Fountains of Wayne, and a prolific songwriter for film, television, and theater, has died of COVID-10. He was 52-years-old. Schlesinger had one of the most unique and busiest careers in pop.

Good Medicine: The Band’s Classic Song, “The Weight,” Sung by Robbie Robertson, Ringo Starr & Special Guests from Around the World

Robbie Robertson’s “The Weight,” the Band’s most beloved song, has the quality of Dylan’s impressionistic narratives. Elliptical vignettes that seem to make very little sense at first listen, with a chorus that cuts right to the heart of the human predicament. “Robertson admits in his autobiography,” notes Patrick Doyle at Rolling Stone, “that he struggled to articulate to producer John Simon what the song was even about.” An artist needn’t understand a creation for it to resonate with l...

Bob Dylan Releases a Cryptic 17-Minute Song about the JFK Assassination: Hear a “Murder Most Foul”

Like an Old Testament prophet with smartphone, Bob Dylan has appeared the midst of catastrophe to drop a new previously unreleased track, “Murder Most Foul,” on Twitter. Ostensibly a 17-minute song about JFK’s assassination, it’s “the first evidence of original songwriting that we’ve had in eight years from one of the most original songwriters of our era,” writes Kevin Dettmar, Professor of English at Pomona College, for The New Yorker. The move seems like a weird one—“’weird’ with its f...

Steve Carell Didn’t Really Want to Leave ‘The Office’ in Season 7

Steve Carell was one of the biggest reasons for the success of The Office on NBC, thanks to his portrayal of the extremely inappropriate but loveable idiot Michael Scott, manager of his branch of the Dunder-Mifflin paper company. That’s why his departure in the seventh season of the series really took a toll on the show’s quality, and it never really recovered until near the end of the final season. It was thought Steve Carell was ready to move on to bigger things, but what if we told you he di...

‘Atlanta’s Missing and Murdered: The Lost Children’ Trailer: New HBO Docuseries Covers the Atlanta Child Murders

Between 1979 and 1981, 30 African American children and young adults either disappeared or were murdered all throughout Atlanta. Wayne Williams was eventually convicted of two of the crimes, and the general assumption at the time – at least according to law enforcement – was that Williams was guilty of all of the murders. But was he? Or was the case closed too quickly? The new HBO docuseries Atlanta’s Missing and Murdered: The Lost Children delves into the story. Atlanta’s Missing and Murde...

Several sources across the booking, management, and venues sectors either declined to comment to Rolling Stone on the subject because of the uncertainty around the matter, or say they do not yet have them in place. There’s also the issue of unpredictability. – Rolling Stone

How Bernie Sanders Saved the Democratic Party

(Bloomberg Opinion) -- With his string of primary losses today to former Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Bernie Sanders has revitalized the institution that he most loves to hate: the Democratic Party. Sanders had hoped to overrun the party. Instead, he inspired resistance among older blacks, suburban white moderates, feminists, pragmatists, patriots — all those loosely affiliated voters whose priorities may vary but who share the paramount goal of removing Donald Trump from the White House.“V...

Because my story was true. I was certain of that. And it was extremely important, I felt, for the meaning of our journey to be made absolutely clear.  The publication history of Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is the story of gonzo journalism itself, a form dependent upon the unreliability of its narrator, who becomes a central character in the ostensibly real-life drama. In Thompson’s hallucinogenic tales of his travels to Las Vegas with attorney and Chicano activist Oscar ...
