  • Happy 65th Birthday, Bruce Springsteen!

    Image Courtesy of Danny ClinchSixty-five years ago today, Bruce Springsteen was born in the U.S.A. -- in Long Branch, New Jersey, to be specific. 

    The Boss may have reached retirement age, but he shows little sign of slowing down.  This past year alone, Springsteen released his 18th studio album, High Hopes; played more than 35 concerts in support of the record; and co-directed a short film to accompany his new song "Hunter of Invisible Game."  He also was on hand to induct his longtime backing group, The E Street Band, into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    Next up for Bruce is a headlining performance at the eighth annual edition of the Stand Up for Heroes benefit show on November 5 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.  The concert raises money for the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which provides funds and services for military personnel returning from active duty, veterans and their families.

    The event takes place a day after Outlaw Pete, an illustrated storybook based on the epic 2009 Springsteen song of the same name, will be published.  Meanwhile, it's a good bet that the Boss will treat fans to more new music and more shows in the not-too-distant future.

  • David Bowie Is Documentary Director Says Film Was an "Incredibly Exciting" Project

    Brian Duffy/The David Bowie Archive and Duffy Archive LimitedDavid Bowie Is, the new documentary focusing on the expansive museum exhibition of the same name, will be screened tonight, September 23, in theaters across the United States.  The one-night-only cinematic event coincides with the exhibit's U.S. opening today at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.

    The movie was directed by Hamish Hamilton, whose previous credits include the 2010 Academy Awards and the 2012 London Olympic Games' opening and closing ceremonies.  The documentary was filmed mostly in August 2013 during the closing night of the display's original run at London's Victoria & Albert Museum.

    Hamilton tells ABC News Radio that working on the documentary was an "amazing" experience, and a very challenging one.

    "We had a blank sheet of paper to start from and that, as a director, is incredibly exciting," he explains.  "[W]e also had all the work of David Bowie, including all the amazing kind of artifacts and assets from his own personal archive, which a lot of people haven't seen before.  So, we got a blank sheet of paper in one hand; we'd also got the most incredible kind of building blocks in the other.  And it's like a kid with Lego, really, trying to put it all together."

    As you'd expect, the movie showcases the many different aspects of the exhibit, which features more than 300 items from the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's archives, including stage costumes, handwritten lyrics, personal sketches and diary entries, as well as films, music videos and photographs of the inventive performer.

    "The exhibition is incredibly well done," says Hamilton.  "It's done with intelligence, it's done with emotion, and it's done with a view to giving you a context at all stages to why David was maybe doing what he was doing.  Was he reacting?  Was he being proactive?  How was the world situation affecting him?"

    Hamilton admits that although he always enjoyed Bowie's music, he wasn't necessarily a huge fan of the singer when he was younger.  He tells ABC News Radio that making the documentary gave him a whole new respect for the 67-year-old rocker's achievements.

    "He's had such incredible impact on music, on fashion, on art, on theatrical staging in concerts," Hamilton notes.  "I mean, he really has completely changed kind of the creative landscape in our times."

    As for what he hopes people will get out of viewing the film, Hamilton says, "I really hope that people take a couple of hours of their life, even if they're not Bowie fans, and go and watch a documentary that is incredibly inspiring, and I'm sure that they will come out of it feeling invigorated, with a desire to go and express themselves in some kind of a positive way."

    Hamilton will be in New York City tonight, September 23, to attend a screening of David Bowie Is at the Paris Theatre on West 58th Street.  The director also will take part in a Q&A at the event, which begins at 7 p.m. ET.  To check out a full list of theatrical screenings, visit OmniverseVision.com.

    The "David Bowie Is" exhibit will open at Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art at 10 a.m. CT, and will remain on display there until January 4, 2015.  As previously reported, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has declared that today, September 23, will be "David Bowie Day" in the Windy City in celebration of the opening.  The touring exhibition also is scheduled to open in Paris in March 2015; in Melbourne, Australia, in July 2015; and in Groningen, The Netherlands, in December 2015.

  • New Paul McCartney Video Celebrates Fifth Anniversary of Meat Free Monday Campaign

    Mary McCartney/MPL CommunicationsPaul McCartney has premiered a new video on his official website to mark the fifth anniversary of Meat Free Monday, the environmental campaign that asks people to skip eating meat every Monday.  The clip, set to the rock legend's original theme song for the initiative, includes photos submitted by fans and supporters of the campaign that cleverly incorporate lyrics from the tune.

    A number of celebrities contributed photos that appear in the "Meat Free Monday" video, including Woody Harrelson, Mayim Bialik, Twiggy, Absolutely Fabulous star Joanna Lumley and Sir Paul himself.  The idea behind the campaign is that by consuming less meat, we can reduce the harmful impact meat production has on the environment.

    BMG/InGroovesThe Kinks exploded onto the music scene more than 50 years ago, scoring their first #1 hit in the U.K. in September 1964 with the classic "You Really Got Me."  To commemorate the milestone, a five-CD box set featuring more than 100 tracks and focusing on the band's early years on the Pye label will be released in the U.S. November 18.

    The retrospective kicks off with a cover of the Lieber-Stoller tune "I'm a Hog for You, Baby" that was recorded in 1964, when the band was known as The Boll-Weevils.  Among the well-known songs included on The Anthology 1964-1971 are "All Day and All of the Night," "Tired of Waiting for You," "Till the End of the Day," "A Well Respected Man," "Sunny Afternoon," "Where Have All the Good Times Gone," "Victoria," "Apeman," "Lola," and, of course, "You Really Got Me."

    The expansive collection, available now for pre-order at Amazon, is part of a 50th anniversary Kinks reissue campaign that began recently with the release of a deluxe version of the band's 1970 album, Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One.  The initiative will continue into next year and will feature various other reissue packages.

    James Minchin IIITo prepare for his role as Beach Boys mastermind Brian Wilson in the upcoming feature film Love & Mercy, actor John Cusack delved into the era of the band's music that is held in high regard by musicians and fans alike.

    "To me, the Smile sessions and Pet Sounds sessions were my way in," Cusack tells Billboard.  "I saw his mind and his creativity [and also] found these things to be absolutely revelatory."

    With Smile and its outtakes, Cusack adds, "you can hear everything that happens for the next 40 years in music."

    The film also stars Paul Dano as a younger version of Wilson, who along with his wife have endorsed Love & Mercy.  It recently screened at the Toronto International Film Festival; director Bill Pohlad is seeking widespread distribution for the movie.

  • Pink Floyd Reveals Details of New Album, "The Endless River," Due Nov. 10

    Columbia RecordsPink Floyd is spilling all the details about their new album, The Endless River, which will arrive November 10.  The album's artwork -- which depicts a man standing in a shallow boat, traveling across a sea of clouds -- appeared on buildings in 10 cities around the world Monday, including New York and L.A.

    As previously reported, The Endless River is a collection of tracks that have been reworked from the 1993 sessions for The Division Bell. Drummer Nick Mason describes the album as a "tribute" to Pink Floyd keyboard player Rick Wright, who died in 2008, adding, "I think this record is a good way of recognizing a lot of what he does and how his playing was at the heart of the Pink Floyd sound.  Listening back to the sessions, it really brought home to me what a special player he was.”

    David Gilmour adds, "With Rick gone, and with him the chance of ever doing it again, it feels right that these revisited and reworked tracks should be made available as part of our repertoire.”  Gilmour also describes the disc as "a 21st century Pink Floyd album."

    The track listing for The Endless River is conceived as running across "four sides," to recreate what it was like to listen to a double album back in the days of vinyl.  Here are the songs:
     
    SIDE 1
    "Things Left Unsaid"
    "It’s What We Do"
    "Ebb And Flow"
     
    SIDE 2
    "Sum"
    "Skins"
    "Unsung"
    "Anisina"     
     
    SIDE 3
    "The Lost Art of Conversation"
    "On Noodle Street"
    "Night Light"
    "Allons-y (1) "

  • 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.

  • SARAH SILVERMAN SLAMS TABLOID STORY ABOUT MARRIAGE

    Sarah Silverman wants to make it clear that she is not looking to become Michael Sheen's wife. The comedian took to Twitter on Sunday (September 21st) to slam a recent Star magazine story with the headline, "Sarah Wants A Ring."

    Sarah wrote, "Just read that I wanna get married which is hilarious b/c I will never get married. Why would I want the govt involved in my love life? Ew. It's barbaric. That s**t never bothers me b/c who cares but I feel like this one is bigoted. The Jew girl MUST want a RING! Yich."
    She expressed similar views in Playboy back in 2010 saying, "It's just not for me. I'm a vegetarian, but I don't have a problem if you want a hamburger. Marriage, to me, is like eating meat. I think it's gross and f***ing crazy. It's this superbarbaric, old-timey tradition that no one remembers we don't have to do anymore. I really do believe in love. I've experienced it, I've had it, so I know it's real."

  • JULIETTE LEWIS DEFENDS SCIENTOLOGY AND TOM CRUISE

    Juliette Lewis insists that there are a lot of misconceptions out there about Scientology. The Kelly & Cal actress recently chatted with The Daily Beast where she defended the religion and the media crusade against Tom Cruise after he spoke out against prescribed medication on the Today show.

    Juliette said, "I'll get all conspiratorial on you. I'm just going to throw this out: The mainstream media is funded by pharmaceutical companies. When you have the biggest movie star in the world at the time -- Tom Cruise -- coming out against anti-depressants and Ritalin and just saying, 'Hey, why don't you put a warning label on there?'...So, when Tom came out about that, I've never seen someone get torn down so hard, and they still brutalize him with Scientology pieces to this day." She continued, "The thing about Scientology is it is anti-drug in that you're seeking relationship or communication tools -- simple basics on how to live better. It's a religious philosophy and self-help movement. And you'll never see a truthful word written about it in mainstream media."

  • CHARLIE SHEEN MAY BE COMING BACK TO 'TWO AND A HALF MEN'

    Could Charlie Harper be making an appearance on the final season of Two and a Half Men? Rumors are circulating that Charlie Sheen and creator Chuck Lorre are both considering the idea even though the character was killed off back in 2011 following a very public battle between Sheen, the show, and the network.

    Charlie told TV Guide, "I've reached out to them and they've reached back. We're trying to figure out what makes the most sense. If they figure it out like I've presented it to them and they want to include me in some final send-off, I'm available and I'm showing up early. If not, it's on them."

    • Chuck discussed the possibility of Charlie's return to E! last month saying, "We haven't discussed that, really. We've been really focused on finding a storyline that puts Jon and Ashton front and center in a really interesting, provocative hopefully fun story. That was our priority going into this year, was to do a storyline that puts these two guys right in the middle of it. So outside characters will come in as they do, but that's not the focus."

    EMMA WATSON SPEAKS ON GENDER EQUALITY: Emma Watson spoke over the weekend at the HeForShe Event at UN headquarters in New York City where she discussed why feminism should not only be a female issue. She told the crowd, "Men, I would like to take this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue, too. I've seen young men suffering from illness, unable to ask for help for fear it will make them less of a man...I've seen men fragile and insecure by a distorted sense of what constitutes male success. Men don't have the benefits of equality, either. We don't often talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are." Emma was named as a goodwill ambassador for UN women six months ago.

  • VIOLA DAVIS RESPONDS TO NY TIMES CRITIC

    New York Times TV Critic Alessandra Stanley continues to deal with the backlash of her review of Shonda Rhimes' new ABC show, How to Get Away With Murder. In addition to her comment about Shonda calling her memoir "How to Get Away With Being an Angry Black Woman," the writer has also come under fire for writing that Viola Davis isn't as pretty as other African American actresses.

    Alessandra wrote, "The actress doesn't look at all like the typical star of a network drama. Ignoring the narrow beauty standards some African-American women are held to, Rhimes chose a performer who is older, darker-skinned and less classically beautiful than Kerry Washington, or for that matter Halle Berry, who played an astronaut on the summer mini-series Extant."

    • Viola took to Twitter on Saturday (September 20th) to offer a response in the form of a Maya Angelou quote. She wrote, "You may shoot me with your words, you may cut me with your eyes, you may kill me with your hatefulness, But still, like air, I'll rise!!!"
    • The quote is taken from Angelou's 1978 work, Still I Rise.
    • New York Times public editor Margaret Sullivan added her voice to the list of people who did not agree with Stanley's critique. She wrote in a blog post on Monday (September 22nd,) "The article on the television producer Shonda Rhimes hadn't yet appeared in Sunday's paper, but the virtual world was ablaze in protest over it on Friday after it was published online. There are some big questions here -- about diversity, about editing procedures and about how The Times deals with stories about women and race. They are worth exploring in depth.This is a preliminary post, and I'll be adding to it later today, or posting again. But I’ll say this much: The readers and commentators are correct to protest this story. Intended to be in praise of Ms. Rhimes, it delivered that message in a condescending way that was -- at best -- astonishingly tone-deaf and out of touch."
