All you Good Charlotte fans will be relieved to know that the new album “Good Morning Revival” will release tomorrow. The new album has been reviewed as “dark and energetic.” It’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything new from these guys, so let’s hope it’s worth the wait.
Hip Hop fans will see several big new releases tomorrow. Young Buck, Redman, Fabulous and Timbaland will be dropping new albums.
Sir Elton John is making the final preparations for a sold-out show tonight (March 25) at Madison Square Garden. This isn't your everyday concert, though, as the pop legend will be celebrating his 60th birthday with his record-setting 60th MSG performance.
Born as Reg Dwight in London on March 25, 1947, Elton has long been a crowd favorite at the coveted venue.
"There are very few artists that could even think of setting a record like this, let alone achieve it," said Jay Marciano, president of MSG Entertainment.
If rap star/producer Dr Dre had listened to his boys, the world might be without Eminem. Can you imagine a world without hilarious parody videos, constant drama, and duets with Elton John? Eminem has been prolific in the world of hip hop, but he almost wasn’t.
Despite conflicting reports, it seems that Mel Chisholm (aka Mel C, Sporty Spice) is interested in having a reunion tour.
“The singer had debunked the idea and claimed it wasn’t conceivable to go on tour with Emma Bunton (aka Baby Spice) and Melanie Brown (Mel B, Scary Spice), who are pregnant. The other two members, Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice), also are involved with their families.”
Last night was round two of eliminations for the Fox Network’s American Idol. The contestants were subject to a British Invasion theme, which came out quite nicely. The show wasn’t lacking in the painful vocal moments, though!
Overall, the two best performers seem to be Jordin Sparks and Melinda Doolittle. Sparks brought the pain, as she always does, with something new. Doolittle will have to start varying her songs/performance or risk becoming boring, though.
For those of you joining us from the UK, here’s some good news. The Rolling Stones will return to live duty with a June 10 headlining appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival.
The rock band has not played a UK festival since the Knebworth Fair way back in 1976. Since the Stones have some shows from last summer’s European tour to make up, it looks like this festival will be a start.
The famed and influential R&B singer Luther Ingram died last night. The singer had received a transplant a few years ago, due to kidney disease, before passing on at the age of sixty-nine.
Born in 1944, in Tennessee, Luther Ingram moved to New York in 1966, to begin his career as a recorded musician. He later moved back to Tennessee and joined the Koko label, which was distributed by Stax.
Reality check: most of the songs you hear on pop radio aren’t written by the artists singing them. I’ll let the shock wear off before telling you that Britney Spears may not be privy to R&B songwriter Ne-yo’s new songs for her.
