An extreme shark encounter was inadvertently caught on tape by Orlando Sentinel photographer Jacob Langston while he was filming a group of surfers at New Smyrna Beach, Florida. A four-foot spinner shark suddenly emerged from the water and did a barrel roll over an unsuspecting person. Totally gnarly, bro!
For alt-rock fans with long memories, Johnny Depp isn’t just a world-famous actor, he’s also the guy who played guitar and bass for Butthole Surfer frontman Gibby Haynes’ short-lived group P. But for pretty much everyone else, the sight of Depp rocking out with Alice Cooper on a London stage comes as a shock.
Depp joined Cooper for the latter’s show in London’s 100 Club over the weekend, an appearance teased by Cooper when he posted a backstage picture to his Facebook account with the caption “Johnny Depp!! Waiting to jump on stage with Alice for ’18′ and ‘Schools Out!’”
Ah, Prince. Whether he’s changing his name to a symbol, scrawling slogans on his face, threatening to sue his fans, or publicly daydreaming about a world in which no one is allowed to cover his songs, he’s always good for a provocative quote or two.
His latest interview, with the UK’s Guardian, didn’t disappoint.
Even if he were simply one of the most critically revered songwriters of the rock era, Brian Wilson’s life story would be ripe for the film treatment. Toss in decades of eccentric behavior and lawsuits, and you’ve got yourself one heck of a biopic.
At least, that seems to be the thinking over at River Road Entertainment, the production company behind Terrence Malick’s ‘The Tree of Life,’ where Oren Moverman — the writer and director behind the Oscar-nominated ‘The Messenger’ — has been hired to write the screenplay.
You’ll have to wait until September to hear Wilco’s new album, ‘The Whole Love,’ but you can get a taste right now because the band released its new single, ‘I Might,’ over the weekend.
Timed to coincide with the return of the Solid Sound Fest — the Wilco-curated festival that takes place in Massachussetts — ‘I Might’ went on sale at the show, which featured a lineup that included Levon Helm, The Autumn Defense, The Handsome Family…and, of course, Wilco.
They burst out of the gate with a multiplatinum debut and a pair of top 40 singles, but then a not-so-funny thing happened to the Spin Doctors on the way to rock ‘n’ roll fame.
Actually, a series of unfortunate events befell the band, which enjoyed two of the most successful singles of the early ’90s in ‘Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong’ and ‘Two Princes’ — they ended the decade not only without a record deal, but without lead singer Chris Barron, who was diagnosed with a rare form of vocal paralysis that left him unable to sing or speak.
Since starting out four decades ago, the Eagles have notched six number one albums, six Grammys, five number one singles, and sold more than 120 million albums. How do you celebrate your 40th anniversary after enjoying so much success?
The upcoming, as-yet untitled set, which will be the band’s 15th studio album in 42 years, is currently being recorded with executive producer Rick Rubin, who’s also serving as a band advisor in his capacity as president of their label, American Recordings.
The group, christened SuperHeavy, is planning a September release for their debut album. No specific date has been set, and they haven’t announced a title, but they have plenty of material to choose from; during their first week together, they wrote more than 20 songs, and they’re filming a video for the lead-off single, titled ‘Miracle Worker.’
What began as a school assignment to trace her own family tree grew into something much bigger for 12-year-old BridgeAnne d’Avignon.
The Paso Robles, CA girl went through more than half a million names over several months and discovered that all the US presidents save for one — Martin Van Buren — are related to John “Lackland” Plantagenet, a former King of England and signer of the Magna Carta.
The band isn’t stopping its vault-purging there, either – Rolling Stone reports that there are also plans for a deluxe edition of U2′s ‘Achtung’ follow-up, ‘Zooropa,’ all part of a wider campaign that will see the songs repackaged in a number of formats.
