In a revealing interview with The Guardian, the 62-year-old musician got candid about his relationship with Moorer —his sixth wife, seventh marriage (he wed Lou-Anne Grill twice), and the woman identified as the love of his life.
The two had a whirlwind romance and were together for eight years (the longest of any of Earle’s marriages). Both musicians, they often toured side-by-side. Earle would even famously introduce Moorer on stage
San Francisco's annual free celebration of bluegrass (and also not bluegrass) in Golden Gate Park, now in its 12th consecutive year, has gotten so popular that shuttling between stages to see all of your favorite bands can prove virtually impossible. Instead, the best idea is often just to get there early, pick a spot near the stage you're most interested in and stay there for the long haul.

Shortly after taking her seat for a video interview for the WSJ Cafe, the acclaimed country singer- songwriter announced that the chairs in the studio were arranged incorrectly. “Well, I’ll tell you first off what’s wrong with this setup,” she declared. She wanted to be able to face her interviewer.

Blow Out (Criterion) Brian De Palma’s greatest Hitchcock homage, with a dash of Antonioni thrown in for good measure. John Travolta gives one of his best turns as a sound-effects engineer who unwittingly records a political assassination, then finds himself hunted by a ruthless hitman (John Lithgow, a memorably creepy psycho) after saving the life of the kindly, albeit dim-witted call girl (Nancy Allen, excellent) who was with the deceased. Terrific blend of suspense and very black humor, perhaps De Palma’s finest hour as an auteur. Beautifully shot by Vilmos Zsigmond. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bonuses: Interviews with De Palma, Allen, cameraman Garrett Brown; Photo gallery; De Palma’s 1967 feature Murder a la Mod; Trailer. Widescreen. Dolby and DTS-hd 2.0 surround.
Kes (Criterion) Ken Loach’s landmark 1970 film is both a heart-rending portrait of adolescence, and a pointed socio-political commentary on life in the North of England.

Whether hunched over an acoustic guitar, a cigarette dangling from his lips, or pulsing behind a keyboard, lost in the music, Jay Bennett cut an imposing figure. During his tenure with Chicago alt-rock icons Wilco, Bennett — who died in his sleep of as-yet-undetermined causes on Saturday night at his home in Urbana, Illinois, according to his former label — often sported a ragged head of near-dreadlocked blond hair and an intense stage presence.
The singer and multi-instrumentalist was 45 and had written on his MySpace blog in April about the intense pain he still suffered from a decade-old hip injury sustained in a stage dive while playing with his previous band, Titanic Love Affair. Bennett said he was preparing to have hip-replacement surgery but was worried that his lack of health insurance might be an impediment, forcing him to sell
