    Netflix’s new movie “Munich – The Edge of War” looks like it’s going to be a very fascinating time. The plot of the film, according to the trailer’s YouTube description, is as follows: Based on the international bestseller by Robert Harris. It is Autumn 1938 and Europe stands on the brink of war. Adolf Hitler is preparing to invade Czechoslovakia and Neville Chamberlain’s government desperately seeks a peaceful solution. With the pressure building, Hugh Legat, British civil servant, and Paul von Hartmann, German diplomat, travel to Munich for the emergency Conference. As negotiations begin, the two old friends find themselves at the centre of a web of political subterfuge and very real danger. With the whole world watching, can war be averted and, if so, at what cost? If the trailer is any indication of what’s coming in the movie, I think it’s safe to say fans are in for a very fun and wild time. (RELATED: Watching ‘Band Of Brothers‘ Never Gets Old.

    Yoko Ono has shown her support for her depiction in new Beatles documentary, Get Back, which fans believe dispel claims that she was responsible for The Fab Four's break-up. The Japanese artist, who was married to John Lennon from 1969 until his murder in 1980, has long been blamed for breaking up the iconic band - comprised of John, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr - and for 'ruining' her husband. The new Disney+ documentary covers the making of the Beatles' 1970 album Let It Be, which had the working title of Get Back, with fans praising Yoko for her 'unassuming' nature in the film - with Yoko showing her gratitude by retweeting a story about fans' reaction.

    Brass Against, a rock band who covers famous rock songs with horn arrangements, has expressed regret after its lead singer urinated on an audience member’s face during a concert Thursday. Sophia Urista, the lead singer for the eight-member band, told the crowd “I gotta pee” during the group’s set at the “Welcome to Rockville” music festival in Daytona Beach, Florida. In the middle of a cover of Rage Against the Machine’s “Wake Up” (the song played over the end credits of the original Matrix film), she continued, “I can’t make it to the bathroom. So we might as well make a show out of it.” Urista called a middle-aged man with a beer can stuck to his forehead to climb onstage. “I’mma piss in this motherfucker’s mouth,” she told the audience. And as promised, she made the concertgoer lie flat on stage while she dropped her pants and let out a nearly 15-second stream, all while continuing to perform her vocals. Videos of the lewd moment went viral over the weekend. **WARNING: GRAPHIC VIDEO** The band published a statement on social...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Jay Black, front man for the 1960s rock band Jay and the Americans, who crooned the soaring vocals to hits like “This Magic Moment,” “Cara Mia” and “Come a Little Bit Closer,” has died. He was 82. The band announced the death of Black, born David Blatt, in a statement Saturday. Jay and the Americans bandmate and vocalist Sandy Deanne said Black died Friday from complications of pneumonia. Rolling Stone reported that Black had suffered from dementia in recent years. “We shared both wonderful and very contentious times, and much like an ex-wife, we are so proud of the beautiful children we created,” the band said in a statement. “We’ll always remember The Voice.” Black joined Jay and the Americans in 1962, replacing the group’s first singer, Jay Traynor. One of their biggest hits was a cover of the Drifters’ “The Magic Moment.” It reached No. 6 on the Billboard charts and sold more than 1 million copies. After the group disbanded in 1973, Black continued as a solo performer up until his...
    (CNN)"Queens" is an extremely familiar idea, elevated not quite to the level of royalty by being slickly cast, packaged and produced. Like Peacock's "Girls5eva," the concept hinges on an all-girl group reunited and again pursuing stardom 20 years later, rediscovering the spotlight and its perils after years spent braiding hair and burning breakfast.Those last mundane activities are how we meet Brianna (Eve), once known as Professor Sex, who is now raising five kids. Methodically, the show goes about introducing the rest of the quartet once known as the Nasty Bitches (a name itself rooted in the past), who, as Jill a.k.a. Da Thrill (Naturi Naughton), notes, "stood on top of the world for a hot minute."The other members of the group, Naomi/Xplicit Lyrics (Brandy) and Valeria/Butter Pecan (Nadine Velazquez), had a sour falling out, with the former toiling away as a solo act -- "still chasing the fame that you found 20 years ago," as she's told -- and the latter having successfully transitioned into morning TV, where her unbridled ambition is on full display.It's their manager (Taylor Sele) who...
    Imagine a Welsh rugby match without 'Delilah', a Christmas party without The Pogues, or a hen do without a raucous duet of Grease mega-hit Summer Nights. What a joyless experience that would be.  But then many music fans would say the same of a Rolling Stones gig without one of their biggest, catchiest, best-loved hits, Brown Sugar, which has been dropped from the set list of their US tour after coming under fire from the woke brigade for its depiction of slavery and sexual violence. It doesn't matter that the song, written in 1969, is clearly anti-slavery. The very mention was enough to send keyboard warriors into a rabid frenzy - and force Sir Mick Jagger and Keith Richards to back down, fearing being 'cancelled' themselves. So, what other classic songs, staples at birthday parties, family weddings and sports matches, might next find themselves on the woke watchlist?  Right at the top, according to some, is Sir Tom Jones's anthem Delilah, whose rousing chorus, belted out by swaying rugby fans after a few pints, has become the much loved soundtrack to...

    Mick Jagger spoke out about his beloved bandmate and pal Charlie Watts. On Wednesday, Howard Stern noted how the Rolling Stones have kicked off their North American tour with a tribute to the late drummer during an interview with the front man. Watts passed away in August at age 80. The shock jock described how the footage features Watts maintaining a steady beat. "Charlie was the heartbeat for the band, and also a very steady personality," Jagger responded, as quoted by Central Recorder on Thursday. "He was not to be perturbed. He was a very reliable person, wasn’t a diva – that’s the last thing you want in a drummer."

    WRIGLEYVILLE — It was a “Metallica emergency” at The Metro. Fans scrambled to the legendary venue Monday afternoon after the Hall of Fame metal band announced they were playing a surprise gig there later that night. The last time Metallica played Chicago, 60,000 people saw them rock Soldier Field in 2017. On Monday night, just about 1,000 people got coveted wristbands to get inside The Metro to Metallica’s first show there in 38 years. They didn’t disappoint, tearing through a set list that included “Master of Puppets,” “For Whom the Bell Tolls,” “Ride the Lightening,” “Hardwired,” “Fuel,” and “Seek & Destroy,” according to those inside. When word began to spread about the show — which cost just $20 — fans began flocking to North Clark Street. Beth Morrissey saw a Reddit post and alerted her friends Rachel Kaiser and Dave O’Callaghan. “It had a photo of people lining up down Clark street, so I called Dave and Rachel and was like ’You’ve got to get over there. It’s a Metallica emergency,” Morrissey said. The line quickly wrapped around the venue’s entire...

    A group of University of Texas at Austin students are suing the school for creating a 'hostile environment' by forcing members of its marching band to play in a separate group because they refuse to play the school's spirit song, 'The Eyes of Texas', at football games.   'The Eyes of Texas' was first sung in 1903 at a student-organized minstrel show, a popular form of entertainment in the early 20th century that featured white performers in blackface, in downtown Austin. It's been a source of campus-wide debate for more than a year after a summer of Black Lives Matter protests amid the killing of George Floyd - but the university stood by the song in a recent report affirming that it had 'no racist intent' and that it  'remains our alma mater.' The lawsuit, filed Friday with the Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights on behalf of an anonymous group of students and the Texas chapter of the NAACP, claims the university failed to respond to the harassment of black students who opposed the song.  At games last fall, members of the...

    20th Century Studios publishes a new Red Band trailer for the long overdue “The King’s Man”, prequel to the Kingsman series, titled in Spain as “The King’s Man: The First Mission”. The trailer is packed with new footage from the film, starting with Rasputin’s introduction. From there, we are given a brief history lesson on the infamous intelligence organization as its members try to prevent a war from wiping out millions of people. “The King’s Man” will serve as a prequel to “Kingsman: The Secret Service” and “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” both based on the comic “Kingsman” by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. The new film explores the origin of the spy agency, whose roots go back to World War I, and will even lay out some ideas for the third Kingsman film. “The King’s Man” has been delayed numerous times, with several of those changes stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. In January, it was even reported that 20th Century Studios’ parent company, Disney, could end up releasing the movie on some streaming platform, but it has not...
    That winter of 1965, the Rolling Stones had just released Satisfaction, seemingly the most smutty single ever. It wasn’t actually smutty at all — the most suggestive thing about it was the title — but they were at a peak of notoriety encouraged by their manager, Andrew Oldham, who realised that fans wanted something edgier than the family-friendly Beatles. Soon afterwards they did a gig at the ABC Cinema in Stockton-on-Tees and that’s where I first met Charlie Watts, interviewing him and the rest of the band backstage as a cub reporter for a northern newspaper. With the press depicting them as scruffy and dirty, I expected to be greeted by a bunch of grunting Neanderthals, but Charlie was the most hygienic, fragrant and well-dressed pop musician you could wish to meet. The others were more wacky but even Brian Jones, the prototype rock star, washed his hair twice a day and they were all perfectly nice to me, even signing a page of my notebook.

    London (CNN)The war against Covid-19 is changing, putting into stark relief the deepening divide between countries that have the weapons to fight the virus and those that don't. As concerns mount over the highly contagious Delta variant, wealthy nations are tightening their grip on vaccine arsenals, while desperate people elsewhere in the world are dying due to a lack of shots.Teetering on the edge of a dreaded new wave of coronavirus infections, the United States and Europe are deploying a barrage of monetary incentives and mandates to convince vaccine holdouts to get off the fence, and momentum is building to dole out booster shots for vulnerable groups. Officials in the US and the European Union have one eye trained on the United Kingdom, where the government was slammed last month for dropping nearly all coronavirus restrictions in England.

As explained by the musician in a long thread of messages, his decision is due to the fact that, due to his medical history and the possible contraindications of the injection, his doctor has advised him against undergoing it. “I passed the virus a year ago with mild symptoms, so I feel confident that I would be able to cope with it again, but not so confident that I will survive another outbreak of Guillain-Barré syndrome.“, Parada has argued about a condition that he already suffered as a child and that” has gotten worse “over time.

Unfortunately for me … the risks far outweigh the benefits.”   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Pete Parada (@peteparada) Parada wrote that he had “no negative feelings” toward the...

Pete Parada said his doctor advised him not to get vaccinated due to him being diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome, a "rare, autoimmune disorder in which a person’s own immune system damages the nerves, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis," according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Since I am unable to comply with what is increasingly becoming an industry mandate — it has recently been decided that I am unsafe to be around, in the studio, and on tour,” Parada wrote in an Instagram post on Tuesday. “I mention this because you won’t be seeing me at these upcoming shows.” NIH DIRECTOR FORCED TO CLARIFY STATEMENT THAT PARENTS SHOULD WEAR MASK AROUND UNVACCINATED CHILDREN View this post on Instagram A post shared by Pete Parada (@peteparada) He is against “those with the most power” deciding which medical procedures are best for others, he added.

"We found ourselves writing songs on our own and realizing that the sounds of them were very similar," Larregui tells PEOPLE from Spain, referring to his bandmates Sergio Acosta, Jesús Baez, Ángel Mosqueda and Rodrigo Guardiola.

    The International Sweethearts of Rhythm: "The First Freedom Riders" This story was written in celebration of International Jazz Day on April 30, the culmination of Jazz Appreciation Month, which this year was dedicated to “Women’s Impact and Contributions in Jazz.” Five years ago, President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama hosted the International Jazz Day All-Star Gala Concert in a pavilion on the South Lawn of the White House. The IJD program also included events all over Washington, D.C., and I presented a panel on “Women In Jazz” with singers Dianne Reeves and Dee Dee Bridgewater and drummer Terri Lyne Carrington at the National Museum of Women in the Arts that was covered by Billboard. For the panel, I prepared a brief introductory overview of the history of women in jazz, and that spurred me to look deeper into this topic. I thought it would be fitting to celebrate here the trail-blazing female jazz instrumentalists—many of them overlooked and forgotten—who battled both racism and sexism to play the music they loved. For decades, these women had to deal with the hardships...

    2021 has become a year for Arsenal fans to forget. After crashing out of the Europa League against Villarreal, the Gunners now face a season without European football, following a dismal Premier League campaign in which mid-table obscurity seems inevitable. 18 The last time this happened to the North London giants was in 1995, in a similarly poor season where they finished 12th in the Premier League and lost in the European Cup Winners' Cup final to Real Zaragoza and THAT Nayim goal. It was a different world back then, with British music ruling the airwaves, Pierce Brosnan's first outing as James Bond, and Kate Moss proving to be the anti-thesis to the supermodels of the time. 1995 was also the start of a foreign revolution in the Premier League, with the likes of Dennis Bergkamp and Ruud Gullit arriving on our shores. 18Arsenal's flops crashed out of the Europa League and face a season without European footballCredit: Reuters BRITPOP In 1995, bands like Oasis, Pulp, Blur, Supergrass were regulars on Top of the Pops - and were the new...
