50 moments from 1969 that shaped entertainment and pop culture

It was the last year of the ’60s, and the last year for Boris Karloff, Judy Garland and the Beatles, too. But it was also the first year for Led Zeppelin, Jennifer Aniston, “Easy Rider” and Jay-Z, too. John Lennon and Yoko Ono spent part of it in bed in public. The Doors’ Jim Morrison spent part of it in jail. Moviegoers spent time watching “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” while at home they watched a brand-new show called “The Brady Bunch” about a brand-new kind of blended family, the youn...

Whitehorse Returns with a New Addition to 'The Northern South'

None It's been more than two years since the Canadian folk rock duo Whitehorse released the EP The Northern South Vol. 1. The disc contained covers of past classics by legends like Robert Johnson, Willie Dixon, Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Reed, and Chuck Berry. Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet transformed these cuts into dirty, nasty, smoldering tracks that bled fire, flesh, and brimstone. The multi-instrumentalists played and sang as if possessed by the devil, the one that lives inside of us and per...

“Rolling Stones fan accuses the band of discriminating against disabled people”

“A Rolling Stones fan has filed a complaint against the band for discriminating against disabled people,” arguing in a complaint to the New York City Department of Human Rights that although wheelchair-accessible seats are made available at various parts of MetLife stadium at different price points, the less expensive ones sold out right away, which left him with a choice only of pricey areas. And this part hurts: plaintiff Michael Boyajian, “a retired administrative law judge, argued that the R...

This has been a huge year for concerts and music of all genres in Southern California. From ginormous, multi-day festivals and spectacular one-offs, elaborate tours that stopped in a variety of local stadiums, clubs and amphitheaters and hard-to-get-into, exclusive small-venue experiences, music fans turned out in droves to catch these performances.

50 fabulous acts that have played The Forum in Inglewood over 50 years

To kick off its 50th anniversary celebration, The Forum had soul and funk band Earth, Wind & Fire perform atop a float that looked like a mini version of the iconic venue this year during the 129th Annual Rose Parade in Pasadena on New Year’s Day. Though the indoor arena officially opened on Dec. 30, 1967 in Inglewood, it was a multi-use facility and one-time home to the Lakers and the Kings, and didn’t host its first concert until Jan. 22, 1968. The venue has undergone several renovations and h...

The Rolling Stones Curate 'Confessin' the Blues'

None The blues' influence on rock 'n' roll is well documented. Likewise, the Rolling Stones' reverence for blues music is equally chronicled. Therefore, the compilation Confessin' the Blues makes sense. Attempting to refocus the public's attention onto the bluesmen who inspired the legendary rock band, the album is composed of classic blues tracks curated by the Rolling Stones. Part of the album's proceeds benefit Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation, an organization devoted to promoting blue...

Music Gifts for the Holidays

As someone who writes on classic rock, pop, soul and jazz for The Wall Street Journal, I'm the recipient of an enormous amount of music CDs, vinyl, videos and books. Here are my favorites that you might like as well as gifts for friends, family or yourself this holiday season: Bob Dylan—More Blood, More Tracks, The Bootleg Series Vol. 14 (Columbia/Legacy). Based on Bob Dylan's official bootleg output from Columbia in recent years, one could fairly assume the folk-rock Verrazzano-Narrows Bridg...

Where Stadium Concerts Are Concerned, It's Now A Pop World

While in days of old stadium shows were dominated by rock stars like The Rolling Stones and The Who, these rock performers are beginning to percolate out, making way for the new titans of pop. __________________________ Guest post by Bobby Owsinski of Music 3.0 Those of us who grew up with rock tend to remember the stadium concert as a bastion of the legendary rock performers like The Rolling Stones, The Who, and Black Sabbath among many others.

The Rolling Stones and today’s politically correct culture

This week, the world’s greatest rock and roll band announced a 2019 U.S. tour. The Rolling Stones will play to packed stadiums across the country, starting at Miami Gardens’ Hard Rock Stadium in April and ending at Chicago’s Soldier Field in June. They’ll be at the Rose Bowl on May 11. After more than 50 years of extraordinary success, it’s fair to say the Rolling Stones are not just a band, they’re marketing geniuses. So it’s interesting that the name they chose for this tour is “No Filter.” It...

British Doctors To Prescribe Arts & Culture to Patients: “The Arts Are Essential to our Health and Wellbeing”

Photo by Adam Jones, via Wikimedia Commons The arts and humanities are afterthoughts in many American schools, rarely given priority as part of a comprehensive education, though they formed the basis of one for thousands of years elsewhere. One might say something similar of preventative medicine in the U.S. healthcare system. It’s tempting to idealize the priorities of other wealthy countries. The Japanese investment in “forest bathing,” for example, comes to mind, or Finnish public schools an...

Wow! It takes the NYT an incredibly long time to answer its question "Why Is CBD Everywhere?"

Subtitle: "Cannabidiol is being touted as a magical elixir, a cure-all now available in bath bombs, dog treats and even pharmaceuticals. But maybe it’s just a fix for our anxious times."I know I'm annoyed by the new ubiquity of CBD, but I'm also annoyed by the notion that we're in some special "anxious times." By the way, the word "fix" to mean "A measure undertaken to resolve a problem; a solution, a remedy" is only a proposed addition to the OED. (It's U.S. slang going back to 1882 ("All that ...

Art-Pop Takes Over the Roxy Courtesy of Shepard Fairey and the Group Jynx

The look of the Sunset Strip’s legendary rock club, the Roxy, can best be described by the Rolling Stones’ song “Paint It Black.” But recently, passersby have been surprised — and, in the case of some staunch traditionalists, appalled — to see its colorful new look. “The Roxy got a makeover!” shouted artist Kii Arens, […]

Rolling Stones to Release Deluxe Reissues of ‘Beggars Banquet,’ ‘Rock and Roll Circus’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Three Stones — Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones — had been arrested on drug charges and narrowly avoided long prison […]

Joan Jett Has Spent Her Career Fighting For Equality In Music. But She Doesn't Know When We'll Get It.

With the release of Bad Reputation, Joan Jett has taken a moment to look back on her own life. She’s already an icon, but this documentary spanning the beginning of her career in the ‘70s all-girl band The Runaways to her induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015 makes something else clear: she’s a fighter. She’s gone to the mat for the rights of women in music, for her own right to make and live by her rules, and for control over her career.“Really that’s all The Runaways were doin...

Hear Nico’s Pre-Velvets Recording, “I’m Not Sayin,” Backed by the Rolling Stones’ Brian Jones & Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page (1965)

For most of us, the Teutonic singer Nico has always been associated with the first Velvet Underground album and then a series of fascinating solo albums (often with Velvets connections) released during the ‘70s and ‘80s before her untimely death in 1988. The voice and the look are unmistakable, that far away stare, that detached, brooding and flat tone. It might also feel like she magically appeared from a cloud of smoke in 1967 New York City. But before she met Andy Warhol, the former t...
