  • Dave Davies Looks Back for New Solo Album "Rippin' Up Time"

    Cleopatra RecordsThe tumultuous relationship of Kinks guitarists Ray and Dave Davies is well documented, but it was a torn photograph of the brothers in happier days that inspired Dave's forthcoming solo album, Rippin' Up Time.


    "It seems like a problem we've had all our life," Dave told Rolling Stone.  "We get real close, and then we get ripped apart."

    Dave explored his past to came up with many of the songs on Rippin' Up Time, due October 28.  One tune is called "In the Old Days," which was started with Ray, but "the whole meeting went wrong," according to Dave, so he completed the lyrics with his son.

    "Songwriting, or really any kind of writing, is the best way to get thoughts or feelings to pop out," Dave said.

    Produced by David Nolte, the album was recorded over six weeks in the summer.  Nolte and Dave played all of the instruments.

    Dave Davies will kick off a North American tour in Milwaukee on November 11.  He told Rolling Stone that while he may play three or four songs from the new album, the bulk of the set will be devoted to Kinks classics.

  • Gladys Knight Talks New Lifetime Movie & Unique "Dancing with the Stars" Concept

    Courtesy: It Is Done CommunicationsFans of Lifetime Christmas movies can rejoice: Gladys Knight has just wrapped filming a brand new movie for the network, titled Seasons of Love.  And even though acting is nothing new for the 70-year old legend, she tells Billboard she found the love scenes a bit challenging.

    "It was a stretch for me because of the onscreen kiss," she laughed. "I felt like I was cheating on my real husband."

    In the film, Knight co-stars with actress Taraji P. Henson, who plays her sister. "It's about young people figuring out how to get the special kind of love that my character and her husband have," she says.

    Knight is having a terrific month music-wise as well. Her new gospel album, Where My Heart Belongs, debuted at number 20  on this week's Billboard's R&B Albums chart.  Gospel isn't new for Knight, who said she often included an inspirational song when recording with The Pips.

    "We [Gladys Knight & the Pips] always had that [gospel] element in our lives, part of the village that raises you," she said.

    Meanwhile, the singer, who competed on the fourteenth season of Dancing With The Stars, said she has one wish for the ABC show.

    "I'd like to see dancers like myself given our own category and give the younger ones their category," she said. "Then we're competing with people equal in the category and not [becoming] the joke of the show."

  • New Publishing Deal Aims to Spread Grateful Dead Music Through Song Placements

    Tim Mosenfelder/Getty ImagesThe Grateful Dead's catalog is now part of a new publishing deal that is expected to result in song-placement opportunities, but not all of the material from the band's long, strange trip will be made available.


    The agreement, struck between Universal Music Publishing Group North America and the Dead's publishing company, Ice Nine, includes using the band's songs in film and television.  However, placement of Dead tunes in commercials is restricted to material not involving Robert Hunter, a longtime lyricist for the Dead.  Hunter had a hand in composing some of the group's best-known songs, including "Truckin'," "Uncle John's Band" and "Casey Jones."  Surviving Dead members Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann are among those with rights to the group's song catalog.

    "We will bring them everything for them to review," UMPG president Evan Lamberg tells Billboard, "and we will learn more about what they want."

    Lamberg is confident this new deal will expand the legendary San Francisco jam band's reach to a different demographic.

    "Young people may know the name Grateful Dead, but not be as familiar with their music," he said.  "If you're not putting yourself into relevant areas where your music can be discovered, your music could be lost to the younger [generation]."

  • Jimi Hendrix Immortalized in Wax at Madame Tussauds in San Francisco

    Beck Diefenbach/Madame TussaudsJimi Hendrix fans can now take a selfie with the guitar god -- in wax-statue form, that is.

    A wax likeness of the legendary musician was unveiled Friday by his brother Leon Hendrix at Madame Tussauds San Francisco.  The ceremony coincided with Jimi Hendrix Day, honoring the 44th anniversary of his death, which occurred September 18, 1970.

    A team of 20 artists worked for more than three months to create the lifelike figure, with painstaking detail to Hendrix's guitar.  The figure got a thumb's up from Hendrix's brother, who praised the museum's work.

    "The representation and detail of his figure is uncanny," he said.  "It's an honor to see him immortalized in this fashion."

    Madame Tussauds San Francisco is in the city's Fisherman's Wharf district.

  • Neil Diamond to Give First Ever Performance in Brooklyn Hometown

    Frank Ockenfels/The Kennedy CenterIt's hard to believe, but in his five-decade career, Neil Diamond has never performed in his hometown of Brooklyn, NY.  All that will change, however, come September 29.

    On that day, Diamond will give a special performance at a "surprise location" in Brooklyn, NY at 6 p.m.  It's so secret, he's not even announcing the location until 8 a.m. that day, via his Twitter and Facebook accounts.  Tickets will then be available on a first-come, first-served basis

    The concert announcement comes on the heels of the news that Diamond will release a new album, Melody Road, Oct. 21. As previously reported, the 12-track collection is the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's first release for Capitol Records under a new deal. It'll arrive packaged with a 36-page book that includes the lyrics and chords to each tune.

  • "Queen Forever" to Include Freddie Mercury-Michael Jackson Duet

    Hollywood RecordsIn 1981, Queen frontman Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson came together in the studio for a once in a lifetime duet that inexplicably never saw the light of day.  That's about to change, however, when when Queen releases a new compilation, Queen Forever, on Nov. 10.

    The song, titled "There Must Be More to Life than This," was originally recorded for the band's Hot Space sessions, but the backing track was never completed.  Enter producer William Orbit, who was tasked with completing the job, an assignment he said was like opening a "a trove of delights provided by the greatest of musicians."

    In a statement released by the band, Orbit says, "Hearing Michael Jackson's vocals was stirring. So vivid, so cool, and poignant, it was like he was in the studio singing live. With Freddie's vocal solo on the mixing desk, my appreciation for his gift was taken to an even higher level."

    While Mercury released a more stripped down-version of "There Must Be More to Life than This" on his 1985 solo album, Orbit went in the opposite direction, adding full instrumentation to give the song more kick.

    In addition to "There Must Be More to Life than This," two other gems appear on the compilation.  There's "Love Kills," a Mercury song from the soundtrack to the 1984 restored version of the 1927 sci-fi film classic Metropolis, performed with American Idol alum Adam Lambert on Queen's summer tour; and "Let Me In Your Heart Again," another unfinished composition from the 1984 Queen album, The Works.

    Queen Forever will be available as a 20-track single CD and as an extended 36-track, two-CD set.  Here's the track listing:

  • Gordon Lightfoot Kicks Off New US Tour Tonight; Says His Performances Are "at a New Height"

    Linus RecordsCanadian folk-rock legend Gordon Lightfoot is heading south of the border for a fall U.S. tour that will see him visiting a variety of cities in the Western U.S.  The trek gets under way tonight in West Wendover, Nevada, and runs through an October 4 performance in Portland, Oregon.

    The lauded singer/songwriter tells ABC News Radio that, at the age of 75, he's enjoying playing concerts more than he ever has.  "I guess it's the quality that I'm seeing in our performances which we're achieving," he explains.  "You know, I'm at a new height in the way we perform the material."

    Lightfoot points out that since he's fulfilled all of his recording obligations, he now puts most of his creative attention toward his live show.  "[My band mates and I] begin to do research into the back end of the catalog and pull out a few gems that have been missed along the way and present those along with the regular material," he says, "and it makes for a pretty interesting show."

    Gordon's last album of original tunes, 2004's Harmony, was released more than 10 years ago, but don't expect to see new material soon.  Lightfoot says writing and recording a new studio effort isn't a priority.

    "Some of the responsibility that I've accrued in my career with my family obligations really is what slows me down in that regard," he explains.  "At the age that I'm at right now, since we're doing so well with our tour…I sometimes wonder if I really wanna do [a new album]."

    He adds, "I mess around with tunes, though.  I can still play with melodies.  I can still compose.  But to throw an album together, you know, it eats up a lot of time and you gotta think about the family."

    Lightfoot fans likely remember that the singer nearly died after suffering an aortic aneurysm in his abdomen in 2002, which sidelined him for two-and-a-half years.  He tells ABC News Radio that after going through that experience, "I can appreciate the fact that I'm recovered and I'm back working again.  I'm thankful."  

    After wrapping up his U.S. trek, Gordon will mount a major fall tour of his home country that kicks off October 21 in Nanaimo, British Columbia, and comes to a close with a November 26-29 stand at Toronto's famed Massey Hall.  Lightfoot also has lined up a trio of dates in Florida this coming February.

  • NY TIMES CALLS SHONDA RHIMES 'ANGRY BLACK WOMAN'

    NY Times TV critic Alessandra Stanley has come under fire for a recent article where she suggested that Shonda Rhimes' memoir should be called How to Get Away With Being an Angry Black Woman. Shonda and a few Scandal cast members Scandal took to Twitter to respond.

    Alessandra wrote, "When Shonda Rhimes writes her autobiography, it should be called How to Get Away With Being an Angry Black Woman. On Thursday, Ms. Rhimes will introduce How to Get Away With Murder, yet another network series from her production company to showcase a powerful, intimidating black woman."

    • Shonda responded on Friday (September 19th) by tweeting, "Confused why @nytimes critic doesn't know identity of CREATOR of show she's reviewing. @petenowa did u know u were "an angry black woman"? Apparently we can be "angry black women" together, because I didn't know I was one either! @petenowa #LearnSomethingNewEveryday. Final thing: (then I am gonna do some yoga): how come I am not "an angry black woman" the many times Meredith (or Addison!) rants? Wait. I'm" angry" AND a ROMANCE WRITER?!! I'm going to need to put down the internet and go dance this one out. Because ish is getting real."
    • Scandal actor Joshua Malina chimed in by writing, "Wow. Did I just read a @nytimes piece that reduced my brilliant, creative, compassionate, thoughtful, badass boss to an 'angry black woman'?"
    • Kerry Washington also tweeted a response pointing the NY Times to two rebuttal articles to Stanley's piece.
    • Stanley has responded to the backlash with a statement saying, "The whole point of the piece -- once you read past the first 140 characters -- is to praise Shonda Rhimes for pushing back so successfully on a tiresome but insidious stereotype."

  • CELEBRITY GOSSIP

    DANIEL RADCLIFFE REPAYS OLD CAB FARE: Daniel Radcliffe kept to his word and paid back a 50 Euro loan he got from a group of Irish athletes he partied with after their championship win back in 2012. One of the guys from the group shared a photo of the money and letter he got from the Harry Potter star writing, "Two years later, Daniel Radcliffe pays us back the taxi fare from that infamous night." Daniel's letter read, "Hi guys, So, Thanks again for paying for my cab! I couldn't live with myself if I didn't honor my word and pay you back. Once again great meeting you all. Hope this covers it!"

    DIRECTOR SLAMS SHARON STONE'S DIVA ANTICS: Sharon Stone's director in the film Golden Boy claims that her demands for signing onto the film were outrageous and out of control. Pupi Avati told The Hollywood Reporter, "It was a negotiation that bordered on ridiculousness, concerning embarrassing details, as if Italy was a third world country. By the way, we do have electricity in Italy." The Italian filmmaker added, "Then my brother received a phone call from Los Angeles from her manager. She wouldn't come back on the set until the photographers and especially that damned TV cameramen had gone away. Obviously we did so and she, like nothing happened, shot the scene. The thing that I found most absurd is that she had to call to the States and to close herself in a car, instead of coming to ask us directly." A rep for Sharon has denied Avati's claims and insists that she is "the consummate professional."

    OBSESSIVE FAN THREATENS TO HARM HIMSELF OVER MIRANDA COSGROVE: Former I-Carly star Miranda Cosgrove was contacted by an obsessive fan earlier this month who was threatening self-harm because she didn't love him.

A California judge has granted protection to Miranda and ordered Joshua to keep away.

    JENNIFER GARNER EXPLAINS WHY SHE ISN'T INTO SOCIAL MEDIA: Jennifer Garner isn't interested in getting Twitter or Instagram followers. The Men, Women & Children star recently chatted with People about being anti-social media saying, "I have an official Facebook page. I'm not on Twitter, Instagram. I have a couple of reasons. One, I don't want any more guilt coming from my phone or computer. I have the hardest time answering emails, anyway, so the last thing I want to feel is indebted to my phone or computer. So it's time. And the other is, what would I Instagram that people would want to see. There is nothing I would put out that people would want to see. It's probably best to stay away. They don't want to see me and my mom friends after kindergarten drop-off."

    PRINCE WILLIAM GOES ON KATE MIDDLETON'S TRIP TO MALTA: Prince William stepped in to go on Kate Middleton's scheduled tour of Malta.

When your brain is freaking out on you, you may have to remind it. Why is being dead funny?"
