  • Record Store Day Black Friday Features Special Releases by The Beatles, Neil Young, Elvis Presley & Many More

    Courtesy Record Store DayThis Friday marks the 2014 edition of Record Store Day's "Black Friday" campaign, a time for vinyl lovers to give thanks for their local independent record shops.  Among the many artists that are releasing limited-edition and exclusive LPs, EPs, singles and collections in conjunction with the unofficial holiday are The Beatles, Neil Young, Elvis Presley, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, The Kinks and Roy Orbison.

    The Beatles' offering is a replica of their 1964 U.K. EP Long Tall Sally, a seven-inch disc with mono sound featuring the Fab Four's rendition of the Little Richard classic and three other tunes.

    Young is issuing a limited-edition box set called Official Release Series Discs 5-8 that gathers 180-gram vinyl versions of four of his albums -- 1973's Time Fades Away, 1974's On the Beach, and 1975's Tonight's the Night and Zuma.  The collection originally had been slated for release as part of this past April's Record Store Day initiative, but was postponed.

    Presley's release is a two-LP, 180-gram vinyl set titled Showroom Internationale that features performances by the late King of Rock 'n' Roll from an August 1970 concert in Las Vegas.  Thirteen of the songs included on the discs are previously unreleased.  The show originally was recorded in conjunction with the 1970 documentary Elvis: That's the Way It Is.

    Bowie's contribution to Record Store Day is a 10-inch single featuring his new song "Sue (or in  a Season of Crime)," which also is included on the influential singer's new compilation, Nothing Has Changed.  The track appears as the A-side of the single, which features another new Bowie song, "Tis a Pity She's a Whore," on its B-side.

    Hendrix's Black Friday release is a two-LP set titled Hear My Music that's pressed on 200-gram audiophile vinyl.   The album offers various unreleased studio recordings the late guitar legend made during 1969.

    The Kinks' are issuing an expanded, two-LP, 180-gram vinyl version of their acclaimed 1971 album, Muswell Hillbillies.  The first disc features the original album, while the second contains studio outtakes, rarities and recordings the band did for famed BBC deejay John Peel's radio show.

    Orbison's Record Store Day release is a colored-vinyl version of the late singer's first full-length album, At the Rock House, which was recorded in 1956 but not issued until five years later.  The long-out-of-print collection features such tunes as "Ooby Dooby" and "Devil Doll."

    Other exclusive vinyl releases that will be available in conjunction with the 2014 Record Store Day "Black Friday" event include discs from Bon Jovi, The Doors, Genesis, The Grateful Dead, The Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and Wham!  In addition, a multicolored, two-LP edition of the American Hustle soundtrack, which features songs by America, Bee Gees, Electric Light Orchestra, Elton John and Wings, will be sold.

  • John Densmore Says He Hopes Doors' Record Store Day Single Brings Attention to Native American Issues

    Rhino/ElektraThe Doors traditionally are among the artists who issue limited-edition vinyl discs as part of Record Store Day's "Black Friday" campaign, and this year is no exception.  The latest offering from the band in conjunction with the initiative not only is a cool collectible but also will raise money for a worthy cause.

    It's a 12-inch vinyl split single, with one side featuring "Ghost Song" -- a spoken-word track from the 1978 album American Prayer -- and the other featuring "Drums," a cover of a tune written by late Native American singer/songwriter Peter LaFarge that Doors drummer John Densmore recorded with some other musicians for a 2010 tribute CD.

    The special disc was the brainchild of Densmore, who explains to ABC News Radio that sales of the single will benefit the Honor the Treaties organization's efforts to "amplify voices of indigenous communities through art."  He explains that he came up with the idea to put the two songs together because they both featured Native American themes and imagery.  "Ghost Song" is a Jim Morrison poem set to music in which, as Densmore explains, "Jim talks about that incident when he was a kid...he felt like Native American spirits jump[ed] into him when he witnessed a car accident."  As for "Drums," it's a song that LaFarge wrote about his struggle to maintain his pride in his Native American heritage.

    In an interesting side note, Densmore's cover of "Drums" also features vocals by late Native American actor Floyd "Red Crow" Westerman, who portrayed the shaman in The Doors movie.

    Densmore tells ABC News Radio that one of his inspirations for the single was famed graphic artist Shepard Fairey, who is a big supporter of Honor the Treaties and who created the striking cover art for the release.

    Meanwhile, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame drummer points out that releasing the single on the day following Thanksgiving seems well timed.

    "It's sort of synchronistic," he maintains.  "It's the day after that day we celebrate where, I don't know if we think enough about how the first peoples of this land taught us how to give thanks, and we were not terribly nice to them, ultimately.  And so, I'm very pleased this is being released on Black Friday."

    Densmore says that he's "extremely proud" of the "Ghost Song"/"Drums" single and hopes "that it sells well to get some dough, in the form of positive energy, to empower Native American artists and Native advocacy groups, and reach a worldwide audience."

  • Surviving Doors Members Share Their Thanksgiving Plans

    Amanda Edwards/WireImageThe Doors' two surviving members, drummer John Densmore and guitarist Robby Krieger, recently reestablished their friendship after being estranged for a number of years.  Still, the longtime band mates won't be spending Thanksgiving together, and have very different plans for the holiday at opposite sides of the U.S.

    Densmore tells ABC News Radio that he will celebrate the holiday close to home with his girlfriend, who he says is "making a giant feast" for her family and his family.

    The 69-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer adds that rather than focusing on the pilgrims who colonized America, he wants to acknowledge the first settlers of the continent during the festivities.

    "Before we start chewing on the turkey, I'm gonna mention the Native American culture," he declares.  "I was raised Catholic, you know, and I was always taught to thank Jesus.  Well, I'm gonna say, 'Let's first thank the turkey for giving us our energy and, second, let's thank the Native Americans for giving us the idea of Thanksgiving.'"

    As for Krieger, he'll be on tour in the New York area during the holiday so, tells ABC News Radio, "I'll probably be eating Thanksgiving dinner at a motel."  Following a show Wednesday in Norfolk, Connecticut, with his current group Robby Krieger's Jam Kitchen, the 68-year-old guitarist will have the holiday off, but then he and the band will play a concert the following day in Amityville, New York.  In addition, Robby also will be performing at a Jimi Hendrix birthday tribute concert this Saturday at B.B. King's Blues Club and Grill in New York City.  The event's lineup also includes Vince Martell of Vanilla Fudge.

    Speaking about feasts, Densmore and Krieger have been promoting the recently released Doors video Feast of Friends, which is available on DVD and Blu-ray.  The release features restored documentary and performance footage of the band shot in 1967 and '68.

  • Roger Daltrey Says He's Considering Recording a Beyonce Song for Upcoming Solo Album

    Rick Diamond/Getty Images for The WhoWhat do The Who's Roger Daltrey and R&B star Beyonce have in common, other than both being singers?  Could be a lot more than that, depending on Daltrey himself.

    In a recent video interview with GulfNews TV, Daltrey was asked for his opinion about several contemporary pop and rock artists, including Beyonce, and he reported that he's actually considering recording one of her songs. 

    "Class," Daltrey declared when the pop/R&B superstar's name was mentioned.  "I'm making a solo album at the moment and I'm toying with doing one of her own songs -- a Beyonce song, just kind of changing the lyrics a bit and put it in the male."

    Daltrey also addressed recent comments he made in the press about U.K. boy band One Direction, in which he apparently implied that he thought the group's music would not be considered significant over time.  Roger explained that he'd been "rather misquoted with One Direction," and that he hadn't been attacking the band.  "They've done incredibly well, and you can't knock that, that they've become the biggest pop band in the world," the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer stressed.  "We were a pop band once, and there's nothing wrong with that...but I don't know what music will have significance in the future."

    The 70-year-old singer also put his two cents in about Justin Bieber and his recent troubles.  "What a shame.  The boy needs help," said Daltrey, then addressed Bieber directly, saying, "Justin, give me a call, otherwise you're gonna end up like Keith Moon, and it'll be 'Goodnight, Vienna,' and I've lost too many friends.  You don't need to go. You've got a lot to offer."

    Daltrey also commented briefly about Taylor Swift, whom he called a "good country artist" and a "good-looking girl," and Kings of Leon, which he said are a "good" American rock ''n' roll band.

    Lastly, Roger was asked to share his thoughts on the oft-maligned Coldplay.  He praised Chris Martin's melodies and said that the sound that the band created "was totally original in its day," but noted that he isn't a fan of Martin's stage antics.

    "I just wish he wouldn't run around so much on the stage, because it takes away from the music.  It doesn't make the music stronger.  It weakens it," Daltrey maintained.  "He doesn't need to do it.  When did you ever see Elvis run on the stage?"

    Roger added that he has the same criticism of Mick Jagger.  "Stop it!" he declared.  "Stand still and dance."

    The Who launch the U.K. leg of its 50th anniversary tour on Sunday in Glasgow, Scotland.

  • Gibson to Release Limited-Edition Bob Dylan Acoustic Signed by Folk-Rock Legend

    Image Courtesy of Gibson BrandsGibson will be releasing two new acoustic guitars based on the SJ-200 model played by Bob Dylan and designed with input by the legendary singer-songwriter.

    The first is the limited-edition Bob Dylan Autographed SJ-200 Collector's Edition, which exactly replicates Dylan's custom-made SJ-200.  Only 175 on the instruments will be produced, each one boasting a label autographed by Bob.  The guitar features a headstock with an inlay of Dylan's "eye logo," as well as fancily decorated double pick guards.  The instrument will come with a hard-shell carrying case featuring an embroidered version of the aforementioned eye logo.

    The second guitar is called the SJ-200 Player's Edition, and features a design similar to that of the Collector's Edition, but made with different types of wood.  This model comes with an an LR Baggs brand Anthem pickup.

    "After years of design and development overseen by the artist's personal guidance, these new models represent the best in artistry and performance just as Bob Dylan represents the best in American songwriting," says Gibson Brands chairman Henry Juszkiewicz.  "Taking elements from the historic SJ-200 line and blending them with Bob's personal vision for a signature model, these guitars represent the best of music history."

    No release date has been announced for the guitars.

  • Billy Joel Denies He Smoked Cigarettes with Obama

    Lloyd Bishop/NBCThere have been some odd rumors about Billy Joel over the years, but one recent one prompted the Piano Man to issue a statement.  It turns out he did not, during a recent trip to the White House, take a smoke break with President Obama.

    The D.C. publication The Hill claimed earlier this week that Billy was overheard at a Washington bar telling someone, "I was at the White House recently, and President Obama...said, ‘I’m going out on the North Portico to have a smoke. Do you want to come with me?”  According to the publication's claim, Billy said that he replied, "Well, I haven’t smoked in a long time,” but then admitted that he couldn't turn down the offer. 

    The Hill further reported that Billy may have been referring to the time last December when he was at the White House for the Kennedy Center Honors.

    However, Billy said in a statement to the New York Daily News. "The Obama part of the story is completely untrue. Nothing like that ever happened. I think their 'spy' had a few too many cocktails at that bar."

    But if the "Obama part" of the story isn't true, which part is?  Likely the other half of The Hill's report.  It stated that Billy told a source at the bar that when he was on Capitol Hill last week to accept the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, he was in Rep. John Boehner's office, and the Speaker of the House "pulled out a pack of cigarettes and offered me one. And I said, ‘No thanks, I quit.’”

    SHIA LABEOUF MAKES COURT APPEARANCE: Shia LaBeouf was back in court on Tuesday (November 25th) to face the charges brought against him after his arrest at a performance of Broadway's Cabaret over the summer.

If Shia avoids arrest for six months, the incident will be removed from his record. He is expected back in court in March to review his progress again.

    JOHNNY DEPP DOESN'T CARE ABOUT HIS RECENT BOX OFFICE FLOPS: Johnny Depp appears in the new issue of Details where he reveals that he doesn't really care that his last few films haven't done so well with critics or at the box office. He tells the magazine, "What is really satisfying is, like Marlon Brando, getting to that place where he just didn't give a f***. First, I reached a point where I cared so much and was so diligent in terms of approaching the work. Then you get to where you care so fucking much that it gets goddamn beleaguering, you know? But then a great thing happens. Suddenly you care enough to not give a f***, because not giving a f***, that's the total liberation. Being game to try anything." He adds, "For everybody, the clock's ticking. The main thing is whether you sit there and stare at the clock in fear of your ultimate demise -- which is pointless -- or you just live." Johnny plays the Big Bad Wolf in the movie adaptation of the musical Into the Woods coming out in December.

    DIEM BROWN'S SISTER REVEALS WHY SHE LIED ABOUT HER AGE: Former Real World/Road Rules Challenge cast member Diem Brown was actually 34 years old when she died of cancer earlier this month even though it was widely reported that she was only 32. Her sister explained her decision to lie about her age to People saying, "Cancer robbed Diem of 10 years of her life. She worked in an industry where age matters. She felt cancer took away enough from her. We all agreed whatever age she wanted to be, we would support her." Us Weekly is reporting that Diem's boyfriend, Chris "CT" Tamburello proposed to her with a ruby ring five days before she passed. A source told the magazine, "He proposed and filmed the entire thing. Diem joked that she hated rubies and said no. Diem knew she didn't have much longer to live and she didn't want to be engaged under those circumstances."

    JENNIFER LAWRENCE GUSHES ABOUT BEST FRIEND LIAM HEMSWORTH: Jennifer Lawrence has nothing but good things to say about her friend, co-star, and rumored new beau, Liam Hemsworth, in the new issue of Nylon magazine. She discusses their close relationship saying, "I guess the thing that surprised me is that I would never expect to ever have a man this good-looking ever be my best friend. I just would never assume those things could happen, but he is. He's the most wonderful, lovable, family-oriented, sweet, hilarious, amazing guy. He actually taught me how to be fair and to stand up for myself. It's my biggest weakness: negotiating. I'm a wimp about standing up for myself and Liam is always fair. He's always on time, he's always doing his job, and he's good about making sure that things stay fair. He's teaching me to toughen up a little bit. That was important, I need that." As previously reported, there are rumors circulating that Jennifer and Liam's friendship has become something more since they have both found themselves single at the same time.

  • WRITERS APOLOGIZE FOR NOT ADDRESSING BILL COSBY'S SEXUAL ASSAULT ALLEGATIONS

    Several members of the media are issuing apologies to Bill Cosby's alleged victims for not addressing their accusations sooner. New York Times columnist David Carr has written a piece calling out writers including himself and Cosby's biographer, Mark Whitaker, who ignored the claims for years before Hannibal Buress brought them front and center in his comedy act.

    Carr wrote, "We all have our excuses, but in ignoring these claims, we let down the women who were brave enough to speak out publicly against a powerful entertainer. Mr. Whitaker has said he didn't want to put anything in the book, which he wrote with Mr. Cosby's cooperation, that wasn't confirmed -- which of course raises the question of why he wouldn't have done the work to knock down the accusations or make them stand up."

    • Whitaker responded on Monday (November 24th) by tweeting, "David you are right. I was wrong to not deal with the sexual assault charges against Cosby and pursue them more aggressively. I am following new developments and will address them at the appropriate time. If true the stories are shocking and horrible."
    • Page Six is also alleging that Bill squashed an article for the National Enquirer about his sexual escapades back in 1989 by giving them a story about his daughter's struggle with drugs and alcohol. The former tabloid reporter revealed, "My editor told me that daddy Cosby was the source. He ratted out his flesh and blood."

  • ANNA KENDRICK REVEALS HER SECRET TO AN ENTERTAINING TWITTER ACCOUNT

    Anna Kendrick has certain rules for herself when it comes to her Twitter account. The 29-year-old chatted about how she keeps her nearly three million followers entertained to E! News while promoting her new film Into the Woods.

    Anna explained, "I drunk draft and double check them in the morning. Although I have done a handful of drunk tweets and so far people have not been able to tell the difference although I'm not quite sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing that my sober tweets could be drunk tweets." She added, "It's funny because I feel like when I try to say something really innocuous, those are the ones where people are like, 'What do you mean by that?' Sometimes, I just say something kind of gross, kind of honest, maybe a little too brutal. Those are the ones people respond to more. It's when you try to say something that's a little too squeaky clean that people are like, 'What's that? What are you doing? What's going on?'"

  • KATE HUDSON SAYS THERE IS NO SECRET TO GETTING A GOOD BODY

    Kate Hudson admits that the only way to really achieve a good body is through diet and exercise. She discussed her fitness regimen to Us Weekly on the red carpet of her mother's Love In For Kids event last week.

    Kate told the magazine, "You work you're a** off, that's the only way. You have to eat right. Everybody wants some sort of secret and there just isn't, it's just you have to work out." She continued, "I wouldn't say I work out a lot, just consistently...People think for some reason you have to work out for two and a half hours...but, it can be little. It can be 20 minutes, it could be 40 minutes, but you have to get it in. You can't do like two weeks and go like do two days and then take a week off and then do three days and then go, 'Why aren't I seeing results? I don't get it.' You know, you just got to do it -- sad, like anything else in life!"

    • The mother of two told Shape magazine last year, "I've eaten in all sorts of different ways over the years. I like to do juice cleanses twice a year for five to seven days, or food elimination cleanses where I just eat super clean. Other than that, I eat everything. I just love food. I love bread. I love pasta."
