How Alison Parker's Parents Are Fighting to End Gun Violence 1 Year After Her Death on Live TV

23 September 2016 10:20 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Alison Parker's parents still have not seen the footage of their daughter's death - a shooting on live TV - and they tell People they'll never look at it. "And we don't want to," says Alison's dad, Andy Parker. "We want gun violence to stop. We don't need this many guns in America. To the people that drink the NRA Kool-Aid, we're not trying to take your guns away. We want to make sure the wrong people can't get guns and we want to close some of those gun show loopholes." Little more than a year ago, as they »

Ten Miles Wide - "Fuck That Shit, I Was Right!"

30 August 2016 10:14 AM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

'...Johndus's response to being told that Masturbational is spelt with an O."

It seems so often these days that all I want to do is burn things to the ground... This is not the confession of a pyromaniac but rather the resignation of a former believer who is convinced that, in so many aspects of life, it'd better if we just started over. However, occasionally something will come along that breathes life into my ever-dwindling hope. Bernie certainly did that for me in the realm of politics, Banksy has long since revitalized my belief in the possibilities of the visual arts, and, in the world of rock, I recently discovered a local secret here in Seattle which, if there's anything right with the music scene, won't remain a secret for much longer. 

In a time where rock seems to be sliding on to the popularity back-burner I am happy »

Dennis Rodman Joins Pearl Jam Onstage, Cradles Eddie Vedder Like a Baby (Video)

23 August 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Dennis Rodman is bringing the phrase “support act” to a whole new level. The former NBA star and all-around attention-grabber joined Pearl Jam onstage Monday night, as the band played Chicago’s Wrigley Field, and as it turns out, Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder ended up being quite the handful for the NBA alum. Actually, two handfuls.

TV Projects Tap Into Beatles, Motown and Dylan Music Catalogues

Eight years ago, Australian writer-director-producer Josh Wakely began pitching Sony/Atv, the music publishing company that administers the rights to the songs of the Beatles, on his passion project: an animated children’s television series plotted around lyrics from the Fab Four. On Aug. 3, Netflix will begin streaming “Beat Bugs,” the original series Wakely wrote, directed, and produced through his company Grace, along with the TV and movie production group Thunderbird and Beyond Screen Prod. Last week at the Television Critics Assn. press tour, Netflix said that a second season will premiere Nov. 18.

Also at TCA, Netflix announced that Wakely will direct, produce, and showrun an animated children’s series based on the legendary Motown catalog, with Smokey Robinson as executive music producer. Inspired by Detroit’s soul music legacy, the as-yet-unnamed show follows a boy named Ben alongside a cast of “enchanting street art characters.” Each episode will include covers of songs by Motown artists such »

Wamg Exclusive: It’S So Easy And Other Lies Interview With Christopher Duddy

28 July 2016 8:39 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It’S So Easy And Other Lies, based on Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan’s New York Times best-selling memoir, is in theaters now. The film chronicles Duff’s rise to fame, his near fatal struggles with addiction, and his transformation into the person he is today.

Recently, I had the chance to speak with director Christopher Duddy. Check it out below!

The doc also features exclusive archival footage and interviews from Duff’s closest friends including fellow Gnr band member Slash, Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, and Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx.

How do you adapt a book into a film? That must have been quite the undertaking at the start… What was your approach, and did it stay the same throughout?

It is a tricky undertaking but I had an extra template with the story telling besides the book and that approach was through the live performance Duff gives in the movie. »

Oscar Winner Ryan Bingham Re-teaming with Scott Cooper for ‘Hostiles’

21 July 2016 9:51 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After winning the original song Oscar in 2010 for his soulful ballad “The Weary Kind” from “Crazy Heart,” singer-songwriter Ryan Bingham is saddling up with director Scott Cooper once again for the upcoming western “Hostiles.”

Bingham will write a pair of songs for the film. Cooper describes them as “in the vein of a murder ballad.”

In an email blast to fans, Bingham explained that scheduling meant he would have to cancel four shows from his upcoming fall tour in Boise, Spokane, Portland and Seattle

“Sincere apologies to the fans who already bought tickets,” Bingham wrote. “I am sad to miss these shows and I will make sure to be back to make them up in the future. Thank you for understanding and for your continued support.”

Just as in “Crazy Heart,” which also won Jeff Bridges the best actor Oscar, Bingham will be appearing in the film. He’ll star as Sergeant Malloy who, »

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don’t plan it, don’t wait for it, just let it happen.

Slash and Duff Talk Early Gn'r in It's So Easy Clip | Exclusive

24 June 2016 4:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In the mid 1980s, there may not have been a bigger rock band than Guns N' Roses. Earlier this year, the band's long-awaited reunion finally happened, with original members Axl Rose, Duff McKagan and Slash, along with drummer Frank Ferrer, kicking off their summer tour last night in Detroit. If you're waiting for the band to come to your neighborhood this summer, you can check out a new documentary It's So Easy and Other Lies, debuting on iTunes and VOD formats July 5. To get fans ready for this release, we have an exclusive clip that showcases the band's early years.

TV Review: ‘Roadies’

20 June 2016 3:29 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Remember concept albums? They still exist, but not quite in the form they took in the ‘70s and ‘80s, when rock musicians made double albums because a single album couldn’t hold all their great ideas. The problem was, in those bloated behemoths, there were rarely enough inspired notions to power one album; most double and triple albums were made to pump up the egos of the people who created them, and those gatefold sleeves, when actually acquired by members of the public, were often put to other uses.

The lumbering beast known as the double album has largely gone the way of the dinosaurs, but one can revisit that kind of tedious sprawl in “Roadies,” which feels like a Spotify playlist in search of a reason to exist.

The first episode of “Roadies” is more tolerable than the even longer pilot for the similarly themed ’70s rock drama “Vinyl,” but »

Review: ‘Roadies’ Needs Direction, But Life on the Bus is Fun With Cameron Crowe

17 June 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Cameron Crowe is a writer defined by his early success. “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” “Say Anything,” “Almost Famous” and “Jerry Maguire” are all landmark films that, no matter what comes next for the man behind them, will remain indisputable classics for the rest of time. Yes, even after unmitigated disasters like “Vanilla Sky” and “Aloha,” Crowe’s early films remain untarnished.

So it’s almost too fitting that the music journalist-turned-filmmaker kicks off the next phase of his career — a television show he’s created, directed and co-written — by using a legendary rock band, past it’s prime but looking to recapture the magic, as an allegorical device for, well, everything; just as it’s fitting that “Roadies” exemplifies the best of Crowe’s earnest exuberances, as well as the potholes he should now know how to avoid.

Even with both in the mix, the new Showtime drama is mostly a fun ride. »

Relive Bonnaroo With This 25-Song Playlist

15 June 2016 5:30 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Bonnaroo began as a jam-band festival, but 15 years later, it's so much more. The lineup for the 15th annual event, which took place June 9-12, featured such wildly diverse acts as Haim, Chvrches, Death Cab For Cutie, Ellie Goulding, and Father John Misty. Over the years, the Tennessee festival has grown far beyond the jam-band genre but never fully abandoned it, as evidenced by 2016 headliners Pearl Jam and Dead and Company, which features members of the Grateful Dead with John Mayer. Better yet, the jammy, hippy vibe still permeates everything at Bonnaroo: everyone camps, people dole out random high fives, and "SuperJams" bring different festival performers together on stage. Consider this Spotify playlist a tribute to the epic bands who keep the Bonnaroo spirit alive. Featuring lots of rock, a little country, and some genre-defying acts like LCD Soundsystem and Blood Orange, these 25 songs highlight the bands I was most excited to see this year. »
