  • Official Grateful Dead Documentary to Celebrate Band's 50th Anniversary

    Michael Ochs Archives/Getty ImagesAn authorized documentary about The Grateful Dead will be truckin' onto screens in conjunction with the jam band's 50th anniversary. 

    Martin Scorsese will serve as an executive producer on the as-yet-untitled film, which will be directed by Amir Bar-Lev, whose credits include such critically acclaimed docs as The Tillman Story, My Kid Could Paint That and Fighter.

    The movie will feature new interviews with all of The Grateful Dead's main surviving members -- guitarist Bob Weir, bassist Phil Lesh and drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann -- as well as with many of the group's friends, collaborators and musical associates.  The flick also will boast archival conversations with the band, as well as plenty of previously unreleased concert footage and behind-the-scenes clips.  The group's longtime archivist, David Lemieux, will be the movie's music supervisor, while Justin Kreutzmann, Bill's son, will be one of the producers.

    Weir, Lesh, Hart and Kreutzmann issued a joint statement about the project that reads, "Millions of stories have been told about the Grateful Dead over the years.  With our 50th Anniversary coming up, we thought it might just be time to tell one ourselves and Amir is the perfect guy to help us do it."

    The band members continue, "Needless to say, we are humbled to be collaborating with Martin Scorsese.  From The Last Waltz to George Harrison: Living in the Material World, from Bob Dylan to The Rolling Stones, he has made some of the greatest music documentaries ever with some of our favorite artists and we are honored to have him involved."

    They add, "The 50th will be another monumental milestone to celebrate with our fans and we cannot wait to share this film with them."

    Scorsese also commented on the film, saying, "The Grateful Dead were more than just a band.  They were their own planet, populated by millions of devoted fans.  I'm very happy that this picture is being made and proud to be involved."

    The Grateful Dead formed in 1965, and released their self-titled debut album in 1967.  No word yet on when the documentary might be released.

  • Annie Lennox Takes on "Evocative" Standards with New Album "Nostalgia"

    Blue Note/Universal MusicIn the '90s, Annie Lennox released Medusa, a disc of cover versions of pop and rock songs from the '60s, '70s and '80s.  But on her new album Nostalgia, the singer goes back much farther than that, tackling legendary standards from the Great American Songbook.  It's something she says she never would have even considered doing back in the '80s, when she was topping the charts as the frontwoman of Eurythmics.

    "I would have had absolutely no interest in doing it," she tells ABC News Radio.  "It would have been inappropriate.  At that time, in the '80s, Dave Stewart and I were creating music with Eurythmics that was very ground-breaking and, we felt, very fresh and new -- innovative, in fact.  I would never've taken a backwards step into a genre like jazz.  But now, it just feels so appropriate."

    Lennox decided which songs to include on the album by scouring YouTube and finding tunes that struck a chord with her.  "Usually, when I hear a song, I'll know within the first few seconds whether it's going to hold interest for me," says the Scottish artist.  "By and large, these songs all have those qualities in them that, right from the moment that you first hear them, they continue through."

    Speaking about the classics she ended up tackling, like "Georgia on My Mind," "God Bless the Child," "Summertime," "The Nearness of You" and "I Put a Spell on You," Annie explains, "They have a narrative.  They have a certain sort of shape.  They tell stories.  They create something evocative.  Each one is like a little journey."

    Because she's not a trained jazz singer, Lennox says she was able to put her own spin on these songs by digging deep into their musical roots.

    "What I did discover was that, underneath, the real core of jazz, lies blues," she explains.  "And, of course, I've come from R&B and soul music that has influenced me since I was a young person...So, I kind of colored a great deal of the songs with blues, and that informed me a lot in terms of my approach to the songs."

    Annie doesn't think it's odd that at this stage in her career, she would attempt a musical genre she's never sung before.  "I am a person who likes to sing to my own tune, literally," she tells ABC News Radio.  "I like to explore and chart new territory and push my own boundaries in a way.  And I don't think that singers necessarily all have to be hemmed in to one label and one type and to say, 'Well, because you sing in one style that doesn't mean that it cancels out every other style.'  I have very eclectic taste in music."

    She says her fans seem to like the direction she's gone on Nostalgia, too.  "I think people are charmed by it actually, more than anything else," she says.  "It's something new and different for them."

    Of course, the big question now is whether or not Lennox will tour in support of the album.  She doesn't particularly like the grind of being on the road, and then there's the issue of how she'd mix these standards with her past hits.  That's why, she says, she just hasn't made up her mind yet.

    "Everyone is asking me if I'm going to tour," she sighs.  "And, I mean, I'm just not going to think about it until we come up to the end of the year and I'll take a break and then I'll consider what the next step should be -- whether I should tour or not." 

    Nostalgia, which is available on vinyl and on CD, is in stores now.

  • Hear Alternate Version of "Stairway to Heaven" Featured on Deluxe "Led Zeppelin IV" Reissues

    Atlantic Records/Swan SongThe entire alternate version of Led Zeppelin's classic anthem "Stairway to Heaven" that will be included on the bonus disc of the upcoming deluxe reissues of the group's 1971 album, Led Zeppelin IV, has made its way online.  The track was mixed by guitarist/producer Jimmy Page during a 1971 visit to the Los Angeles studio Sunset Sound Recorders, although he eventually decided to abandon that version after he returned to London to complete work on the album.

    Among the differences heard in the Sunset Sound mix are more prominent guitars, subdued drums and additional echo in some sections.

    "It's always interesting to hear stuff that you know really well and hear it differently, but the same," says bassist John Paul Jones in an interview with Rolling Stone.  "It does give a different perspective on it.  You hear different things.  I did read somewhere that the end of 'Stairway to Heaven' contained one of the best rock bass parts ever recorded.  Unfortunately it comes underneath one of the greatest rock guitars so...But 'Stairway' is a favorite still.  It's just got everything that we are about."

    Adds Page, "The Sunset Sound mix of 'Stairway to Heaven' was actually mixed at Sunset Sound in L.A. in advance of the version that everybody knows.  I think it's a really good embodiment of everything that's on there.  It's a guitar mix, really."

    In addition to the alternate "Stairway," the companion audio disc included with the Led Zeppelin IV deluxe reissues features alternate mixes to the original album's seven other songs.  The remastered reissues of Led Zeppelin IV and its follow-up, 1973's Houses of the Holy, will be released this Tuesday, October 28.

  • Former Dr. Feelgood Guitarist Wilko Johnson Says He's Cancer-Free

    Lawrence WatsonAfter undergoing a procedure to have a tumor removed earlier this year, former Dr. Feelgood guitarist Wilko Johnson says he is now cancer-free.

    Commenting on the procedure to the BBC, the 67-year-old musician says the tumor weighed more than six pounds and that "they got it all. They cured me."

    Johnson was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer in 2012. He says that at the time he was convinced he would die from the disease. Now, he says, "I'm spending my time gradually coming to terms with the idea that my death is not imminent, that I am going to live on."

    Johnson -- who released a collaborative album with The Who's Roger Daltrey earlier this year, Going Back Home -- spoke with the BBC Wednesday in London at the Q Awards, where he accepted the Icon Award.

  • Ides of March/Ex-Survivor Member Jim Peterik Shares Cool Stories from His New Memoir, "Through the Eye of the Tiger"

    BenBella BooksJim Peterik has found success as a member of two popular rock bands, The Ides of March and Survivor, and also is responsible for co-writing memorable songs for a number of other well-known music acts.  The 64-year-old musician shares a variety of fascinating, amusing and touching stories from throughout his life and his nearly half-century music career in his recently published autobiography, Through the Eye of the Tiger.

    Peterik recently chatted with ABC News Radio and singled out a few of the many highlights he included in the book.

    The memoir begins with the singer/songwriter recalling receiving "the phone call that changed my life," when Sylvester Stallone rang him up to see if he wanted to write a theme song for his then-upcoming Rocky sequel, 1982's Rocky III.  Stallone initially left a message on Peterik's answering, and Jim admitted that he thought someone was pranking him at first.  When he did get in touch with the Hollywood star, he told Peterik he liked Survivor and was hoping the band could come up with tune that would appeal to "the kids, something with a pulse."

    Peterik teamed up with his Survivor band mate Frankie Sullivan and the song they came up with was, of course, "Eye of the Tiger."

    Jim told ABC News Radio that the song's title and theme came directly from the movie.  Stallone had allowed Peterik and Sullivan to view a rough cut of the film, and while watching it, he noted, "that's when we got the thread of the underdog rising up…and Burgess Meredith's character saying, 'Rocky, you gotta get back the eye of the tiger.  You're losing it.'"

    "Eye of the Tiger" became a #1 hit and went on to sell millions of copies.

    Peterik also recounted the story behind "Vehicle," the first and biggest hit he had with The Ides of March, a band he and some high school buddies formed when they were just teenagers.

    He got the idea for the song's title from an ex-girlfriend who, after they broke up, would ask him to drive her around to various places.

    "I figured, well, at least I could be close to her, right?  Even if I didn't, you know, score, as they say," he explained to ABC News Radio.  "So, I kept driving her places and pretty soon I realized that she was kind of using me as her vehicle, you know?"

    The song wound up becoming a #2 hit in 1970, which must have impressed the ex-girlfriend, who Peterik ended up marrying.  They've now been together for more than 40 years.

    One of the more outlandish anecdotes Peterik shares is the time The Ides of March opened for Led Zeppelin and was invited to a party in Robert Plant's hotel suite afterward.

    "Robert Plant opens the door in his little bikini briefs and his little silk robe…and] past him we see an orgy," Jim recalled.  "And there was every kind of drug in the world being ingested, groupies doing a pillow fight, things I can't even talk about happening in the bathtub with [drummer John Bonham]."

    As it turned out, the wild party didn't appeal to Peterik and his band mates.  As he explained, they politely excused themselves and "went 'cross the street to Dunkin' Donuts and we ordered milk and doughnuts, and we were back in our comfort zone and very happy guys."

    Peter has been promoting Through the Eye of the Tiger with a series of book-store appearances and storytellers-style solo performances.  He has a few of the latter gigs scheduled in the coming month, and he also has a number of concerts with The Ides of March. You can check out his full itinerary at JimPeterik.com.

  • High-Quality Vinyl Versions of Cream's Classic Albums Collected in New Box Set

    Universal Music EnterprisesA new vinyl box set featuring all of Cream's studio and live albums released during the 1960s and early '70s will hit stores on November 24. 

    Cream: 1966–1972 includes six albums in all: the British power trio's 1966 debut, Fresh Cream; 1967's Disraeli Gears; the 1968 chart-topping double LP, Wheels of Fire; the band's 1969 swan song, Goodbye; and two archival live discs issued after the group's breakup, 1970's Live Cream and 1972's Live Cream Volume II.

    Featuring the impressive lineup of singer/guitarist Eric Clapton, singer/bassist Jack Bruce and drummer Ginger Baker, Cream created a vastly influential body of work during its short life by combining elements of the blues, jazz and rock with experimental psychedelic sounds.  Among the virtuosic supergroup's many well-known songs are "Strange Brew," "Sunshine of Your Love," "Tales of Brave Ulysses," "White Room" and "Badge," as well as memorable covers of the classic blues tunes "I'm So Glad," "Born Under a Bad Sign" and "Crossroads."

    All of the discs featured in the box set are pressed on 180-gram vinyl, and come housed in sleeves exactly replicating the albums' original artwork.

  • Report: John Mellencamp and Meg Ryan Are a Couple Again

    Josiah Kamau/BuzzFoto/FilmMagicJust two months after reports emerged that John Mellencamp had split up with longtime girlfriend Meg Ryan, comes word that sparks are flying between the two stars again.  A source close to the singer/songwriter tells People, "They are back together and it's brand new…They're really happy about it."

    The latest news follows reports that the couple was spotted contentedly walking around New York City's Soho district together last week.

    In addition, Mellencamp hinted in an interview last month on NBC's Today show that he hadn't given up on the relationship.

    "She's an angel sent to me, and I'm very happy," he said during his appearance.  "And, you know, nothing's over 'til it's over."

    Another source close to Mellencamp suggested to People that conflicts over the long distance between the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's Indiana home and New York, where the actress is based, were partly responsible for the tensions between the couple.

    "There were disagreements over style of life and logistical problems which clouded their relationship," the source maintains.  "But there is no doubt that he cares for her a great deal."

    The insider adds, "They are a great couple.  All their friends were hoping it would work out."

    People magazine first reported that Mellencamp and Ryan were dating in January of 2011.

    John recently released his 22nd studio album, Plain Spoken, and he'll launch a major North American tour in support of the record that begins on January 21, 2015, in South Bend, Indiana.

  • Sting Talks Tantric Sex in Advance Clip for "Inside the Actors Studio"

    Tony Behar/NBCUSting is not only a singer and songwriter, he's also an occasional actor, having appeared in quite a few movies over the years.  But during his appearance this Thursday night on the series Inside the Actors Studio, he ended up having to talk to host James Lipton, not about his craft, but about his sex life.

    Specifically, Lipton asked Sting about his infamous quote regarding "Tantric sex," in which he and his wife Trudie Styler allegedly had eight-hour lovemaking sessions.  Sting has since backpedaled, saying the whole thing was a joke, but in an advance clip from the episode, Lipton still insists he explain the audience of young people just what he meant.

    "If we had seven hours, I would demonstrate," Sting said, to huge laughs and cheers.  "Maybe not. But there is some truth to it.  The idea of tantric sex is a spiritual act. I don't know any purer and better way of expressing a love for another individual than sharing that wonderful, I call it, 'sacrament.' I would stand by it.  Not seven hours, but the idea."

    He then quipped, "Seven hours includes movie and dinner," getting another round of laughs.

    Sting's appearance on Inside the Actors Studio, which airs Thursday night at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo, is mostly focused on the opening of his first Broadway musical The Last Ship.  He wrote the music for the show, which is based on his own childhood growing up in a shipbuilding town in the north of England.

    Billy Bob Thornton is finally offering up an explanation for Angelina Jolie wearing a vial of his blood around her neck while they were dating. He made the revelation while speaking to the students at Loyola Marymount University's School of Film & Television last week.

    The 59--year-old told the students, "A vial of blood is very simple. Angie came home one day with a kit she bought. You know those lockets you buy that are clear and you put a picture of your grannie in it or something like that and wear it around your neck? That's what it was. She bought two of those. We were apart a lot because she's off making Tomb Raider and I'm making Monster's Ball. We were on opposite ends -- we see each other for two weeks and whatever. She thought it would be interesting and romantic if we took a little razorblade and sliced our fingers, smeared a little blood on these lockets and you wear it around your neck just like you wear your son or daughter's baby hair in one. Same thing. From that we were wearing quart jars of blood around our necks...and we were vampires and we lived in a dungeon." Billy Bob added, "I think it's your duty to kind of tell people the truth about this stuff and the truth is not encouraged anymore."

    • He and Angelina got married in 2000 but broke up in June of 2002.

  • AMY POEHLER ADDRESSES HER BODY ISSUES

    Amy Poehler won't let the superficiality of Hollywood get the better of her. She recently opened up to People about the pressure to look a certain way when you're in the entertainment industry.

    Amy said, "In a shallow business, I just had to come to terms with being really okay with not being...symmetrical. You can either spend your life trying to be perfect, and you can tweak and nip and tuck, and then be afraid to move your face. There's a line between feeling healthy, strong and sexy and feeling good about yourself, and being worried about how you measure up." The Emmy-winner added, "Some days I wake up and I'm just like, 'All right, I'm feelin' really good,' and some days I loathe myself. Just like everyone else. It's so funny because it doesn't matter what you do, whether you have your picture in a magazine or you don't, there are days where you're just feeling it and other days where you look at yourself and say, 'Oh my god, who is that old woman in the store window? Oh my god, it's me!"

  • MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY REVEALS WHAT PUSHED HIM TO GET MARRIED

    Matthew McConaughey admits that he was in no rush to make things official with wife Camila Alves before she put the pressure on him to make things official.

    He tells GQ magazine, "I had to get to the point where I saw it as more than just the thing to do. I wanted to really want to. You know, I didn't want it to be a destination; the fun is that we're on the adventure together. And look, some of it had to do with her putting it on me. It took her going, 'C'mon, Big Boy, Mr. Easygoing-We'll- Get-to-It-When-We-Get-to-It. Either s**t or get off the pot."

    • Matthew goes on to reveal that, despite his views on marriage, fatherhood was always something he knew he wanted. He goes on to say, "Never is a man more of a man than when he is the father of a newborn. Whatever decisions you make in the first six months of becoming a father, double down on them. I mean, you're meeting the Courier. You're meeting the Shepherd, the Future Prince. You immediately have something you don't have to think about. You know what's important. Bam! And the clarity of that is like, 'Whew.' I definitely got more selfish. And at the same time, I think I got more compassionate, which don't always go together, you know?"

  • RYAN PHILLIPPE ADMITS MOST OF HIS MOVIES ARE BAD

    Ryan Phillippe admits that his career hasn't included many high quality films. The 40-year-old reflected back on his 20-year career in a recent interview with the L.A. Times and his questionable future in the industry.

    Ryan explained, "I've made 30-plus films over 20 years. And in my opinion, five of them are good. So you slave away and you work hard and you want to make something great, and a lot of times you end up disappointed. There are a lot of elements that are beyond your control when you're an actor for hire." He went on to use his 2011 movie Setup as an example saying, "I did this terrible movie with 50 Cent. It was just a situation I didn't want to be in. I was sold a bill of goods and it turned out to be something different, which is often the case in this business." Ryan added, "Acting alone doesn't sustain me the same way it used to. Which I think is completely okay if you've done something for 20 years. Trying something else becomes really appealing."
