  • Daryl Hall Expecting Audience to Dress Like Him & John Oates at Online Halloween Show Tonight

    Image Courtesy of Kathy PhillipsTonight, Daryl Hall & John Oates will play "Hall-O-Ween & Oates," a special Halloween concert that will stream live online on Yahoo starting at 9 p.m. ET.  Daryl says he expects plenty of costumes in the audience, including ones inspired by himself and John.

    Speaking to Rolling Stone, Daryl says, "I've played many Halloween shows over the years, but never anything like this."  The occasion is the opening of Daryl's House, the singer's new bar and concert venue in Pawling, New York, inspired by his popular TV and online series Live from Daryl's House.  Six episodes of the show's new season, which will debut in March, will be taped there.

    While Daryl himself says he doesn't plan to dress up, he predicts fans will.  After all, he says some fans even dress as him and John when it's not Halloween.  "There are always some fools that do things like that," he tells Rolling Stone. "At least this is an appropriate time to do it."

    Asked which era of Hall & Oates will make the best costume, Daryl says, "Now."

    If you can't watch the show tonight, it'll be replayed for the next 24 hours.

  • Bruce Springsteen Shares Favorite Authors, Talks Reading Habits in "New York Times" Q&A

    Image Courtesy of Danny ClinchBruce Springsteen is the author of a new illustrated book titled Outlaw Pete, based on the epic song of the same name from his 2009 Working on a Dream album, which will be published on Tuesday.  In celebration of the book's arrival, the Boss was interviewed by The New York Times about his own literary interests, including his favorite books and authors.

    One interesting tidbit that Springsteen reveals to The Times is that when he wrote the song "The Ghost of Tom Joad," he had yet to read the famous book that inspired it, John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath.  When he finally did, he says "it ended up being everything I'd hoped it to be."

    Asked to name his favorite novelists of all time, Bruce says, "I like the Russians, the Chekhov short stories, Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky.  I never read any of them until the past four years, and found them to be thoroughly psychologically modern."

    Springsteen admits that he "didn't begin reading seriously until" the age of 28 or 29, but once he did, writers such as Flannery O'Connor, James M. Cain, John Cheever, Sherwood Anderson and noir author Jim Thompson became influences on his songwriting starting in the late 1970s.

    "They brought out a sense of geography and the dark strain in my writing," he explains, "broadened my horizons about what might be accomplished with a pop song and are still the cornerstone literally for what I try to accomplish today."

    The Boss also discusses his favorite memoirs by musicians, listing Keith Richards' Life, Eric Clapton's autobiography and Bob Dylan's Chronicles, the latter of which he says "made me proud to be a musician."

    Bruce also says Richards and Dylan would be among the people he'd invite to a dream literary dinner, along with Tolstoy and Philip Roth.  "A lot of life experience there, and the babbling in different tongues would be wonderful," he notes.

    Springsteen also reveals that the first book he ever read was L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz.  "I remember being thrilled by the book and the act of reading," he points out.  "Over time my most beloved character became the great and powerful Oz himself."

    As for what books currently are on his nightstand, the Boss lists the Herman Melville classic Moby-Dick and Gabriel García Márquez's Love in the Time of Cholera.  He says he just finished reading Moby-Dick, which he admits "scared me off for a long time due to the hype of its difficulty."

    He describes the tome as "a beautiful boy's adventure story," and says he found it "not that difficult to read" after all.

  • Sammy Hagar Says He Would Sing with Van Halen Again Under the Right Circumstances

    Frontiers Records/UniversalSammy Hagar acrimoniously parted ways with Van Halen about a decade ago, but the Red Rocker says that under the right circumstances he would be willing to reunite with his old band mates.

    "I would play with anybody that loves me and that I love.  That would include Van Halen, but the love's not there right now," Hagar tells Rolling Stone.  "I do love those guys, [although we] really bumped heads on the last tour."

    Hagar says Van Halen's 2004 reunion tour "was just a mess and I would never go into a mess like that again."  He adds that the trek "was just about the most dysfunctional thing I've ever done in my adult life, times 10," while suggesting that the bulk of the blame rested on guitarist Eddie Van Halen shoulders.

    That being said, Sammy says that a Van Halen tour featuring both him and David Lee Roth trading off on vocals "would be the coolest thing for the fans ever." He adds that he "would do it for the fans" but that [e]verybody would have to be cool and have their hearts in it."  Not surprisingly, Hagar says, "I just doubt it'll ever happen."

    First and foremost, Sammy says he'd like to see his friend and the band's original bass player, Michael Anthony, rejoin the group.

    "I would like to just see Mike back in the band with Dave," Hagar maintains.  "If that works, all right, I'll come in next."

    He also tells Rolling Stone that he misses drummer Alex Van Halen, who says he hasn't spoken with since the end of the 2004 tour.

    "He's the most fun, that guy," Sammy declares.  "There was something about Al and I, we had a real special relationship, even more than Ed and I."

    Asked whether it bothers him that rock fans know him more for his tenure as Van Halen's frontman than for anything else he's done in his long career, Hagar says, "No. Man, if you put that whole Van Hagar catalog together and listen to the body of work it's incredible…I'm honored to be a part of that.  I'm sorry about the bad blood, but I'm totally honored. That's the peak of my freakin' musical career, no doubt about it."

  • Bob Seger Loves Halloween but Not Dressing Up

    Clay Patrick McBrideIt's no secret that Bob Seger likes that old time rock 'n' roll, but did you know that he's also a big fan of Halloween?  The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer tells ABC News Radio that he and his family enjoy getting together to celebrate the holiday with all the little trick-or-treaters who come to their house for candy.

    "My wife loves Halloween, and her mother comes over and her sister and [her] kid and our kids, and we just sit at the front door and watch all the great kid costumes and the parents from the neighborhood," says the Michigan rocker.  "It's a fun time."

    While Seger enjoys seeing other people dress up for Halloween, he admits that he doesn't like wearing costumes himself.

    I'm the only one [in my family]," he points out.  "I reserve the right, being the paterfamilias or whatever you want to call it."

    Seger adds that if there's a situation where he feels he has to wear a costume, such as a Halloween party, he generally won't put a lot of effort or creativity into his outfit.

    "I'll dress up in something I'll really feel good in, like my motorcycle stuff," he explains, laughing.  "I'll say, 'I'm a motorcycle guy.'  That's what I go as.  [I have] no imagination in that regard."

    Bob's new studio album, Ride Out, was released on October 14, and last week debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on Billboard's Rock Albums chart.  This week, the record dropped, respectively, to #14 and #2 on the tallies.

  • Marvin Gaye's Family Wins First Round in Copyright-Infringement Battle over Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines"

    Image Courtesy of MotownA judge in California is allowing a lawsuit initiated by the late Marvin Gaye's family to move forward that alleges pop/R&B stars Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke stole parts of a classic Gaye song to write their smash "Blurred Lines."

    U.S. District Court Judge John Kronstadt on Thursday denied a motion seeking to have the claim of copyright infringement thrown out before trial. That motion had been brought by "Blurred Lines" writers Pharrell, Thicke and rapper T.I. last July, in response to a string of suits between themselves and their publishers on one hand and the Gaye family and Gaye's publishers on the other.

    In Thursday's ruling, the judge found that the Gaye family's musicological experts had showed enough possible similarity between "Blurred Lines" and copyright-protected elements of the Motown legend's 1977 hit "Got to Give It Up" that a trial is needed to decide the merits of the case.  The judge also allowed a second claim to proceed, over alleged similarities between Thicke's 2011 track "Love After War" and Gaye's 1976 song "After the Dance."

    The cases, however, will not take into consideration any similarities between things like the percussion tracks or background vocals in the various songs.  In a partial victory for Thicke and Pharrell, Judge Kronstadt found that only material found on the sheet music registered with the U.S. Copyright Office -- not other elements of the recordings themselves -- will be relevant at trial.

    A trial is currently scheduled for February 10, 2015, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

  • Gregg Allman Dismissed from Civil Lawsuit Tied to Midnight Rider Biopic Accident

    PMK-BNCGregg Allman and his manager, Michael Lehman, have been dropped from a civil lawsuit initiated by the family of Sarah Jones, the camera assistant who was killed by a train during the filming of the Allman biopic Midnight Rider this past February. 

    Deadline reports that an attorney for Jones' parents announced Thursday that they were dismissing claims against Allman and Lehman, who were serving as co-producers of the movie, as well as against the Open Road Films distribution company.

    "After reviewing the many thousands of pages of documents, and other information we have obtained through the legal discovery process, it is clear that Mr. Allman and Mr. Lehman had no involvement in any of the decisions that resulted in Sarah's death," said Jones family attorney Jeff Davis in a statement.  "Our investigation has also shown that, in this case, Open Road Films was not directly involved in the poor decisions that led to this horrific event and the tragic loss of Sarah's life."

    Sarah's father, Richard Jones, added, "During a very difficult and trying time for our family, Gregg Allman and Michael Lehman demonstrated their genuine sorrow over the loss of our daughter and their willingness to work with us in the future to ensure safe film sets for all.  For that, we are grateful."

    News of the dismissals follows a hearing at a Georgia court this past Tuesday during which lawyers for Open Road Films told the presiding judge that the company was close to reaching an agreement with the Jones family.  The hearing is scheduled to continue on November 13.

    Meanwhile, Deadline also revealed on Thursday the results of a federal investigation into the fatal accident, which occurred when a train unexpectedly crossed a trestle bridge near Jesup, Georgia, where the filmmakers were attempting to shoot a scene.  The report cites the production with a variety of health and safety violations.

    As previously reported, Midnight Rider's husband-and-wife director-producer team of Randall Miller and Jody Savin, executive producer Jay Sedrish and assistant director Hillary Schwartz all are facing involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespass charges in connection to the incident.  Their trial is scheduled to begin on March 9, 2015.

  • Eagles, McCartney, Rolling Stones Among Finalists for 2014 "Billboard" Touring Awards

    James Glader; MJ Kim; Simon CrossThe Eagles, Paul McCartney and The Rolling Stones are among the artists who will vie for honors at the 2014 Billboard Touring Awards, scheduled for November 20 at the Edison Ballroom in New York City.

    The Eagles are finalists in the Top Tour category, which acknowledges the highest-grossing tours of the year.  The veteran band's The History of the Eagles trek is competing against tours by a couple of younger pop acts -- Justin Timberlake and One Direction.

    McCartney and The Stones both are in the running for the Top Boxscore prize, which honors the highest-grossing single engagement by an artist.  The former Beatles star is being recognized for a three-concert November 2013 stand at the Tokyo Dome in Japan, while his fellow British rockers got their nod for a three-show engagement at the same venue in February and March of this year.  One Direction also is a finalist for this award.

    Meanwhile, Billy Joel's ongoing residency at New York's Madison Square Garden will be competing for the Concert Marketing & Promotion Award, an honor that The Rolling Stones' 50 and Counting Tour won last year.

    The Billboard Touring Awards ceremony will serve as the finale of the 11th annual Billboard Touring Conference, which is scheduled for November 19-20 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City.  The awards are based on numbers reported to Billboard magazine from October 1, 2013 through September 30, 2014.  Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell will be featured in the conference's keynote Q&A session.

  • Founding Yes Singer Jon Anderson Records Charity Single with Ex-Counting Crows Member Matt Malley

    Gonzo MultimediaFormer Yes frontman Jon Anderson has released a new charity single that he recorded with ex-Counting Crows bassist Matt Malley titled "The Family Circle."  Proceeds raised by sales of the tune will benefit three organizations -- the Flutie Foundation, Sahaja Yoga Meditation and the National Autistic Society.

    The track currently is available as a digital download for 99 cents via iTunes.  The melodic song showcases Anderson's serene vocals, with music highlighted by gentle piano, synthesized strings and an Indian-influenced guitar solo.  An accompanying video has been posted at the GonzoMusicTV YouTube channel that features a montage of clips of beautiful landscapes around the world.

    "'Family Circle' came together when Matt sent me the beautiful music earlier this year," explains Anderson in a statement.  "I sang the song and lyric idea and sent it back to Matt, thanking him for the great energy.  Eventually, Matt added some more sounds and the haunting guitar solo."

    Jon continues, "It's a pleasure to release this around Thanksgiving time, reminding us of our connection with our families and how our children keep us together, bonding our love of life."

    Adds Malley, "Not only am I a fan of Jon's voice but I'm a fan of his fearless spiritual outlook which appears in all of his music."

    As previously reported, Anderson currently is working on the debut album by his new group, Anderson Ponty Band, a collaboration with veteran jazz violinist Jean-Luc Ponty.  The record is expected to be released sometime next year.

  • SWEDISH WOMAN CLAIMS ASHTON KUTCHER CHEATED WITH HER

    A Swedish make-up artists claims that Ashton Kutcher cheated on Mila Kunis with her a month before they took their relationship public back in 2012. Linn Massinger told UK's The Sun that she met him at a bar in June of that year and spent the night at his home in Hollywood.

    She revealed, "He just took my hand and took me upstairs. When I was there he didn't mention Mila or anyone, I hope he thought I was a nice girl." A source also discussed their fling with Star magazine saying, "Ashton was giving Linn the eye from across the bar.

They owe hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees, restitution, and of course millions in the bankruptcy case."

    COCA ROCHA ADDRESSES KENDALL JENNER BULLYING RUMORS: Model Coca Rocha dropped by HuffPost Live this week where she addressed the rumors that 18-year-old Kendall Jenner was bullied backstage during New York Fashion Week in September. Coca said, "It is bad for the industry, and if that all did happen, that's really frustrating to hear. You have to remember that during the shows, it is all very young girls. It's like high school. We breathe and eat and sleep together for two months, so it gets to a point where you're just overwhelmed, frustrated and tired, and I've had my own stories where it gets a little catty backstage. And not everyone's going to get along. It makes sense. Not everyone's going to be your best friend." The 26-year-old added, "But when that does happen, step back, breathe a minute, get out of the room, whatever you need to do. Because in the end, people are watching you under such a fine microscope. People are going to watch whatever you do, so if you want the job, if you want to be respected in the industry, remember that even though you're a young girl, you have to act a little older and a little wiser." Other models at Fashion Week reportedly felt Kendall's involvement was unfair considering her family connections. In other Kardashian news....

It made me say, 'Wow, they're being honest about their lives and what they want.' And not like I hadn't been before, but it made me look at myself and ask myself more questions about that. It made me ask myself, 'How can I be as honest too?' Even though you're out of the house and you're an adult and you have a career, when the people you love and admire -- particularly your parents -- start doing things to change or start being very honest, it's a huge influence.
