AC/DC's vast catalogue of tunes is set to hit streaming services today, the New York Times reports. After joining iTunes only three years ago, the popular and seemingly immortal Australian rock band will now also be accessible via Spotify, Rdio, and Apple Music, among other services. AC/DC has been a vocal digital holdout because it, like many of the other bigs from rock's Old Guard, reportedly didn't want "albums split into individual tracks to be sold." "We are a band who started off with albums and that's how we've always been," guitarist Angus Young told Britain’s Sky News in 2011. "We always were a band that if you heard something on the radio, well, that’s only three minutes. Usually the best tracks were on the albums." The group’s most recent record, Rock or Bust, was the first made available for digital download; it has had more »

Holy crap, the GRAMMYs were long. And not because the acceptance speeches were long -- each winner was given approximately five seconds to thank everyone. So in case you don’t have three and a half hours to marathon 22 performances (23, if you count LL Cool J’s weird performance of “Going Back to Cali” at the top of the show) we ranked them for you.
From best to worst:
Song: “Precious Lord, Take My Hand” and “Glory”
Moment to Talk About: That one second as the lights were coming on and Beyoncé was standing in that glittery white gown looking straight out of Solange’s wedding photo was already better than any performance of the night. Take Us To Church, Bey (And John Legend And Common).
ETonline Grade: A+
Moment to Talk About: When you realized it was...Kristen Wiig?!

It was the band’s first time performing at the awards ceremony. See photos: Grammy Awards 2015: Red Carpet Arrivals Inside the L.A. Staples Center, artists like Lady Gaga pumped their fists to the high-energy song. Others donned lit red horns in honor of the rock band. Lead singer Brian Johnson kept it classic with his usual black shirt and jeans outfit. Guitarist Angus Young still hasn’t let go of »

Los Angeles – The suave, Australian-born Rod Taylor may have been a leading man footnote in the early to mid-1960s, but he did star in a notable classic: the Alfred Hitchcock-directed “The Birds”. His chiseled good looks and sincere acting style were also memorable in a career that spanned more than 50 years. Rod Taylor passed away of a heart attack in Los Angeles on Jan. 7 2015, according to his daughter, Felicia Taylor. He was 84.
Rodney Sturt Taylor was born in Lidcombe, Australia, and was inspired to acting after seeing Sir Laurence Olivier portray Richard III. He played an American – as he would in subsequent roles – in his 1954 debut film, “King of the Coral Sea.” A failed screen test for another role got him a contract at MGM, and he made his debut as a leading man in the popular sci-fi film, “The Time Machine.” What followed was a scatter shot of lead roles, »
