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.

While Carroll has successfully recovered and played several live and livestreamed shows with the band in the year and a half since, COVID is still having an impact on all three bands’ touring plans.

    Of the hundreds of millions of pieces of debris floating in space, a significant portion could wind up forming a 'ring' around the Earth, similar to the solar system's gas giants, a University of Utah professor has warned. The debris is likely to give Earth 'its own rings' made of 'space junk,' University of Utah researcher Jake Abbott said in a recent interview with the Salt Lake Tribune.   However, Abbott and his team are working on a way to clean up the debris, putting a magnet posted at the end of a robotic arm and using the magnet's eddy currents to collect the space trash.  NASA estimates there are at least 23,000 pieces of debris that enter low-Earth orbit (LEO) larger than a softball in orbit, but there are probably 500,000 pieces between 0.4 inches and four inches. It's possible there are 170 million pieces of space debris that are smaller than 0.4 inches, the European Space Agency added.   A significant portion of space junk could form a 'ring' around Earth, like the solar system's gas giants, a professor has warned Saturn's...
    The world has justifiably awaited the release of the 33-year-old singer Adele’s latest album but — without hesitancy — I can say that the musical event of the year comes courtesy not of the girl from Tottenham, but four lads from Liverpool who, decades after they came together, remain the greatest musicians of the modern age.  They are, of course, The Beatles, the 20th century band who transformed music.  Their soundtrack is one which effortlessly bestrides every decade from the Swinging Sixties to the current day. And now, astonishing and intimate unseen footage allows us to glimpse them once more at their creative zenith.  Sixty hours of footage, filmed over the course of four weeks in January 1969, has been edited down into three two-hour long documentaries by the Oscar-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson.  Having had the chance to see a preview, I can tell you that this is appointment viewing, an epic but intimate portrait of a band at the height of their powers against the backdrop of a London that no longer exists.

    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.

    Halestorm is the greatest hard rock band in the world right now. I’d put the pride of Red Lion, Pennsylvania up against anybody in the business — from the Foo Fighters to Five Finger Death Punch — and expect vocalist-guitarist Lzzy Hale and company to come out on top. Every. Single. Time. Halestrom certainly underscored its position, at the very top of (what Jack Black would call) “Mount Rock,” with its winning performance at the SAP Center in San Jose on Tuesday night (Nov. 9). It was a co-headlining show with Evanescence — and the alt-rockers from Little Rock, Arkansas put on an enjoyable enough show. Yet, what Halestrom delivered was nothing short of a declaration of greatness. The band — which also consists of drummer Arejay Hale, guitarist Joe Hottinger and bassist Josh Smith — took the stage around 8 p.m. and opened its hourlong set with a powerful version of the recent chart-topper “Back From The Dead.” “San Jose, the only thing I ask from you tonight, because it’s been so long since I’ve seen you, please do...

The former sextet is now a septet with Tank and the Bangas singer Anjelika “Jelly” Joseph (pictured above playing Tampa's Gasparilla Music Festival) sitting in with powerhouse vocals.

    The Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger is famous for his hip-snaking sorcery on stage, but the lead singer may have been shown up by Boston Dynamic robot ‘Spot' in a new video. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the British band's 'Tattoo You' album, Boston Dynamics' engineers taught Spot to dance and lip-sync like Jagger in the ‘Start Me Up’ music video. The company also trained three other Spot robots to recreate the moves of fellow band members Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts. During the video, the lead Spot moves its long neck to mimic the motions Jagger makes with his arms and the robot also opens its mouth to lip-sync along with the Rockstar.

    Rolling Stones fans are fighting back against the band's decision to remove Brown Sugar from their US tour setlist after it came under fire over its depiction of slavery and sexual violence.  The song was axed from the 13-date US tour over fears the British rockers would be 'cancelled' by woke music fans who take issue with lyrics like the opening lines: 'Gold Coast slave ship bound for cotton fields / Sold in the market down in New Orleans / Skydog slaver knows he's doin' all right / Hear him whip the women just around midnight.' Confirming its removal from this setlist in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Keith Richards said the band did not want to get into 'conflicts' over the song. But furious Rolling Stones fans said they don't understand the controversy surrounding the track as it is clearly anti-slavery, with many saying artists should be free to express themselves without fearing 'cancel culture'.  Now fans are calling on the band to reintroduce the song by bombarding the group's official Instagram account with requests for it...

    By Dave Pehling SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Finally returning after a hiatus forced by the pandemic, local psychedelic glam/stoner-metal group Glitter Wizard presents the eighth edition of their Hallorager celebration at the Bottom of the Hill Saturday night. READ MORE: FBI Gang Enforcement Operations Lead to Charges in 2 Attempted Homicides in East BayThe SF-based glam/stoner/prog band has been bashing out its unique style of over-the-top hard rock for over a decade. Originally formed in Santa Cruz before relocating to San Francisco, Glitter Wizard twists together elements of Black Sabbath, Hawkwind, Blue Cheer and Black Oak Arkansas with outlandishly Spandex-clad lead singer Wendy Stonehenge working the stage in a high-energy frenzy that recalls Jim “Dandy” Mangrum. The band’s enthusiastic fringe-and-leather sporting sidekick “Mercho Man” adds to the onstage entertainment at their live shows. The group independently released several singles and full-length efforts before putting its third headbanging space-boogie opus Hollow Earth Tour out through Heavy Psych Sounds in 2016.

READ MORE: Atmospheric River: Alameda County Fair Reopening Monday After Storm Knocks Down Trees, Damages BoothsTempering hefty, bong-hazed riffs with equal doses of dreamy guitar drones and transporting melodies, talented power trio Dead Meadow has been making its unique style of heavy psychedelic rock for over two decades. Founded in Washington, D.C. in 1998 by guitarist/singer Jason Simon, bassist Steve Kile and drummer Mark Laughlin, Dead Meadow crafted a sound that managed to appeal to Sabbath-worshipping metal fans, greybeard hippies and shoe-gazing indie kids alike. Built around Simon’s languid, fuzzed-out guitar (and fueled by liberal use of his wah-wah pedal), the trio’s self-titled debut album on Fugazi bass player Joe Lally’s stoner-rock focused label Tolotta Records fit in comfortably with the imprint’s other releases by Philly-based instrumentalists Stinking Lizaveta and several of doom icon Scott “Wino” Weinrich’s bands.
