New York - Veteran singers Neil Diamond, Tom Waits and Alice Cooper are to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year, the fabled institution has announced. Also granted the prestigious honour were Dr John and Darlene Love. Other nominees such as Bon Jovi, as well as multiple nominees LL Cool J, Donna Summer, the Beastie Boys, J Geils Band, Chuck Willis, Chic and Joe Tex will have to wait for another year. The awards will be presented on March 14 in New York. Cooper, a pioneer of theatrical shock-rock in the early 1970s, said the honour had been a long time coming. 'It did get to be kind of a joke, »
Neil Diamond has been inducted into the Us Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year alongside four other artists including Alice Cooper. It was announced today that the pair have been drafted into the organization, along with Darlene Love, Dr. John and Tom Waits. Neil, 69, told the Associated Press: "I thought about it occasionally, but I kind of figured they'd get around to me at some point." Phoenix and Arizona native Cooper (pictured below), 62, added: "You know it crosses your mind, but then you think of all the guys who aren't in there, some of them before you. You realize that it's a waiting game." Shortlisted acts include the Beastie Boys and Bon Jovi. »
The latest crop of Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Inductees were announced yesterday and it’s quite an illustrious list. The artists who will be inducted at next year’s ceremony are Neil Diamond, Tom Waits, Darlene Love, and The Alice Cooper Band. We think that to properly honor Diamond, the ceremony should be held at Fenway Park where he can be serenaded by 40,000 Bostonians drunkenly slurring the words to “Sweet Caroline,” but that’s just our opinion. While the list contains all notable and deserving musicians who deserve to join the Hall of Fame, it’s worth mentioning who was left off the list as well. Artists are eligible for the Hall of Fame 25 years after the release of their first single or album, so who was rock-blocked? Well, there were The Beastie Boys, who seem entirely too young to be inducted so that makes us feel old »

Alice Cooper, Tom Waits, Neil Diamond, Dr. John and Darlene Love head the latest class to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, an institution that is almost as well known for who it excludes as for who gets in. Left off the list this year is LL Cool J, The Beastie Boys and Bon Jovi. Is this the heavy hand of Rolling Stone editor Jan Wenner at work? Among groups with huge careers and big fan bases still on the outside looking in are Kiss and Rush, to name two. Cher complained in a recent interview that Sonny and Cher, the 1960s rock duo, with husband Sonny Bono, should also be in, calling being excluded “just rude.” »

Alice Cooper, Neil Diamond, Dr. John, Tom Waits and Darlene Love will be inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall Of Fame. The annual crop of five musical acts will be added to the Us institution in March 2011 after being voted from a shortlist of acts by 500 music industry insiders.Artists are eligible to be voted into the Hall Of Fame 25 years after the release of their first recording. Alice, born Vincent Damon Furnier, told Billboard magazine he wouldn't have accepted the induction if it weren't for his original group, which split in 1974 after recording seen albums, following which he went on to have a successful solo career. He said: "It was the original band that had all the iconic records from 'Love it to Death' on to 'Billion Dollar Babies'. What I did after that was an aftermath. The original band were the guys that had to cut through that big, »
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced its 2011 inductees, with the Alice Cooper Band, Neil Diamond, Dr. John, Darlene Love and Tom Waits all slated to be enshrined next year. Leon Russell will receive the award for musical excellence, which was previously the “sidemen” category. Also being inducted this year are Jac Holzman and Art Rupe as recipients of the Ahmet Ertegun Award. As with any awards presentation, the list of inductees is as notable for who was left off as who made it on. Snubs for 2011’s Rock Hall include »

With any hall of fame, there are always going to be arguments about who belongs in and who doesn't, and there will typically be outrage about people who have been overlooked. Every hall of fame has its mysterious choices (baseball has Phil Rizzuto and Jim Rice, basketball has Adrian Dantley, football has Rickey Jackson), but this year's batch of inductees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is pretty confusing. The new class includes Alice Cooper, Tom Waits, Neil Diamond, Dr. John and Darlene Love.
Taken in a vacuum, that's not a horrible group of musicians (Waits' inclusion is especially inspiring, considering he has been consistently turning out great work for decades without a lot of mainstream recognition). But when you look at the nominees that got denied (especially LL Cool J, Beastie Boys and Bon Jovi) and the groups who continue to get overlooked (Kiss, Rush), it seems »

Neil Diamond, Alice Cooper and Tom Waits will be inducted into the Us Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year. BBC News quotes Diamond, whose biggest hits include 'Sweet Caroline' and 'Cracklin' Rosie', as saying that he was "glad they did it before I'm dead". "I kind of figured they'd get around to me at some point. [I was] a lone voice out there with a guitar, and it was different than what was going on because it was the English invasion and I wasn't (more) »

Neil Diamond and rocker Alice Cooper at at the head of the class - the class of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees for 2011. The musicians were drafted into the estimable organization, it was announced Wednesday, along with Darlene Love, New Orleans-based singer Dr. John and gravely-voice singer-songwriter Tom Waits. Diamond, 69, who has been eligible for induction for years, had a measured reaction to the honor, telling the Associated Press in a new interview, "I thought about it occasionally, but I kind of figured they'd get around to me at some point." Cooper, 62, was equally appreciative - but wasn't »
The official announcement won’t come until Wednesday, but as we hinted at here, Neil Diamond, Alice Cooper, Tom Waits, Dr. John and Darlene Love will be the 2011 inductees in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The New York Times is reporting that Leon Russell will also be inducted with the award for musical excellence (this used to be called the sideman award). What a great year Russell is having between this and his great album with Elton John, “The Union.” Love had been nominated two times before, but the rest of her class made it on their first ballot. »

No stranger to animated movies, Tom McGrath has provided voices in such films as Flushed Away and Shrek The Third, and directed episodes of The Ren & Stimpy Show, Madagascar, and most recently, Megamind. We caught up with Mr McGrath for a round-table discussion about his latest film, and the process of creating it.
What made you choose Will Ferrell for the lead?
Ah, because he’s fun. He’s also a great actor. We had the script and the character designs, and I know Alan Schoolcraft and Brent Simons, the writers, envisioned Will early on. He just has a great talent, »
What was your inspiration behind Megamind’s voice?
Well, in terms of vocals, I was just trying to go for… he’s this villain who, under a different circumstances, could have been the good guy. He’s alienated to the point where he thinks, "I might as well be evil, it’s what I’m good at"
Tom McGrath, the director, and I, we spoke about how he should be approachable and sweet, and someone you’d root for. »

Written by Hubert Selby Jr.
The apotheosis of Add. MTV-era filmmaking, Requiem for a Dream is designed to divide. Its mathematically precise editing and histrionic message-driving makes it perhaps the shrillest anti-drug movie of any age, yet its hyperbolic sense of terror and frenetic rhythms manage not to obscure its less obvious gifts. It announces its creator as a force to be reckoned with, even if some will rightly take issue with the film’s combustible content.
Presenting the addict’s progression as a seasonal process, Requiem is divided into “Spring,” “Summer,” “Fall,” and “Winter,” with each segment more perilous than the last. Our victims are young, handsome Harry Goldfarb (Jared Leto); his jittery mother Sara (a devastating Ellen Burstyn); his best friend Tyrone (Marlon Wayans in a rare dramatic role) and his loving girlfriend Marion (Jennifer Connelly). Harry and Tyrone »

Ah, what is it about pop stars or wannabe pop stars trying to rock out that gets on my tits... Maybe its being a fan of Rock music perhaps, and not really being one to see Rock songs being given the commercial pop make over that it inevitably gets on this show. I mean can you imagine Take That or some other middle of the road pop act singing Dead Babies by Alice Cooper? I guess not. Thankfully it wasn.t a total washout with X - Factor last night, but I have to say that when you have singers who are vying to be mainstream acts attempting to sing Rock songs. It goes either one of »

Alice Cooper will hold his 10th annual “Christmas Pudding” celebrity charity concert on December 18, with the help of former Eagles guitarist Don Felder, Rob Zombie, Cheech Marin, Glen Campbell, winners from ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ and ’America’s Got Talent’, and many others.
Rocker Alice Cooper has a soft spot for charity, and can usually be found on golf courses around the world raising funds for those less fortunate.
The shock rocker credits golf as being the one thing that helped him beat his dependency on alcohol, and has thrown himself into the game ever since. He is also the co-founder of the Solid Rock Foundation, a Christian organization that strives to help children and teens in the Phoenix area by providing a center where young people can learn about and participate in sports, music and educational activities.

There are a number of huge high-profile releases hitting record store shelves this week, including Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Ke$ha's Cannibal, Justin Bieber's My Worlds Acoustic and Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday. But if you're really looking to satisfy your rock jones this week, there is only one place to turn, and that is the elaborate universe created by My Chemical Romance's new album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. The band's long-awaited fourth album (their first since 2006's dark, complicated The Black Parade) casts them as a band of outsiders in an Orwellian future and is full of huge riffs and shout-along choruses. They have already scored a big hit with the first single "Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)," and the video for "Sing" is sure to carry them even deeper into »
