Pink Floyd Unearth ‘Money’ In-Concert Film From 1994 Tour

Pink Floyd have unearthed the in-concert film that appeared on screens during the band’s performance of “Money” on their 1994 tour, one of the many audiovisual oddities featured in the upcoming box set The Later Years.

The quirky clip is like a Hipgnosis-designed album cover come to life, with a bizarre bartering system, a B-movie grade flying saucer and swimming pools full of money somehow weaving together to issue an allegorical warning about inflation and capitalism.

‘America’s Got Talent’ final: Kodi Lee and Emanne Beasha battle to win season 14 of ‘Agt’

Kodi Lee may regret being the “America’s Got Talent” frontrunner from the very start of season 14. With just hours left before he performs in the “Agt” final on Tuesday September 17, this singing sensation has seen his lead over child prodigy Emanne Beasha shrink. The little girl with a grown-up voice has pulled perilously close to him in our exclusive poll of “America’s Got Talent” viewers.

Lee was the highlight of the first quarterfinal while Beasha shone on the third show. They then appeared on separate semifinals. Lee was the stand-out act on the first semifinal on Sept. 3 while Beasha stole the show on the Sept. 10 second semifinal. Tuesday’s live final on NBC will bring us the much-anticipated title bout of Kodi Lee vs. Emanne Beasha.

‘Western Stars’ Release Date: Bruce Springsteen Movie Cuts Loose Via Warner Bros
Bruce Springsteen turns 70 this month, but that isn’t slowing him down. (Like anything can.) Now we have a release date for Western Stars, a film that combines archival footage with the Boss’ performance of his new album in its entirety.

Warner Bros puts the film out in the street — well, in theaters — on October 25, after a pair of exclusive one-night Fathom Events screenings on the 19th and 23rd. The pic will have its world premiere September 12 at the Toronto Film Festival. Have a look at the trailer here.

In a July radio interview, Springsteen said the inspiration for the film came through positive fan response to his “little off to the left” album Western Stars, his first since High Hopes in 2014. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer previously had announced that he would not have time to tour behind the orchestral pop-country record and that he’s planning

Mark McGrath Is Just as Shocked as You Are That There’s a New Sugar Ray Album
About a year and a half ago, the producers of Celebrity Big Brother asked Mark McGrath to stage a fake recording session so they could shoot a quick sizzle reel of him before the reality show began filming. But when Sugar Ray guitarist Rodney Sheppard arrived at the studio, he had the seed of a song idea he wanted to try out. “We started building on it and basically finished a song called ‘Highest Tree,’” says McGrath. “Ironically, the sizzle reel turned into a real session.”

Bruce Springsteen ‘Western Stars’ reviews: Is the veteran rocker’s 19th album is a ‘masterpiece’?
Bruce Springsteen released his 19th studio album, “Western Stars,” on June 14. It’s his first studio album since 2014’s “High Hopes,” and his first album of entirely new material since 2012’s “Wrecking Ball.” It’s a change-of-pace concept album for the legendary rocker, who uses the collection to tell stories about characters called to the California frontier. So what do critics think of Springsteen’s new sound at age 69?

They seem to like it quite a lot. As of this writing “Western Stars” has a MetaCritic score of 86 based on 18 reviews counted — all of them positive, including a couple perfect 100s. It is being described as a “late-period masterpiece.” The singer-songwriter feels “rejuvenated” by his trip out West with “irresistible” sounds of “lushly orchestrated throwback, country-tinged folk pop.”

Bruce Springsteen Drops E Street Band Bombshell at Netflix Emmys Fyc Event

Bruce Springsteen Drops E Street Band Bombshell at Netflix Emmys Fyc Event
Good news for fans of the wild, the innocent and the E Street Band.

During his conversation with Martin Scorsese dissecting the nuances of performance and the creation of his Netflix variety special “Springsteen on Broadway,” Bruce Springsteen swung a — yes, wrecking ball — of epic proportions about his musical future.

While discussing with Scorsese how artistic creation is about capturing a splinter of the divine, the “Born to Run” artist used an apt example, displaying that even creative geniuses run into a spot of writer’s block every now and then.

“I’ve spent about seven years without writing anything for the [E Street Band]. I couldn’t write anything for the band. And of course, you think you’ll never be able to do that again,” Springsteen admitted. “It’s a trick every time you do it. But it’s a trick because [of] that factor that you can’t explain, cannot be self-consciously duplicated.

How heartbreaking is this? “Shallow” is part of a dying breed of Academy Award winners – love songs

“You’ll know before the dance is through that you’re in love with her and she’s in love with you.”

That lyric is from the very first Best Song Oscar winner, “The Continental,” from the 1934 Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers musical, “The Gay Divorcee.” It’s a celebration of the power of dance to ignite the flames of desire.

Now “Shallow,” a more clear-eyed view on matters of the heart (“Ain’t it hard keeping it so hardcore?”) from “A Star Is Born” is part of that Academy Award tradition. But the fact is, such honored love songs are becoming a rarity.

It used to be that romantic tunes regularly caught Oscar’s ear. Occasionally, a song of yearning like 1939’s “Over the Rainbow” from “The Wizard of Oz,” “When You Wish Upon a Star” from 1940’s “Pinocchio” and “White Christmas” from 1942’s “Holiday Inn” broke through. There
