Ryan Adams performed a concert at Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London, England last week and for his encore, he brought out actor and sometimes musician Johnny Depp to perform. The pair delivered a brilliant cover of the Danzig song Mother, which you can watch in full above. I can’t even tell you the jealousy I feel at the crowd who got to experience this performance live but … at least we get to enjoy this fanshot video. I’m seeing Ryan Adams in concert in Santa Barbara in a couple of weeks and I can only hope he’ll have something special planned for the SoCal crowd. Ryan + Johnny + Danzig = <3

Um. So. Ricky Martin has just released a new single titled Adiós that has been recorded in English, Spanish and English & French and as you can hear for yourself, the song is pretty horrendous in any language. Of the 3 versions, I guess the song sounds best in Spanish … but that is not saying much. I listened to the song a few times and, yeah, I just do not love it at all. Click the embed above to hear Adiós in English and see what you think. Am I being too harsh? You can click below to hear the song in Spanish and French to compare … or further torture yourself. Eek.

Back in January, a new music streaming service called Beats Music was launched by Dr. Dre, Trent Reznor and Jimmy Iovine. Shortly there after, the Beats Music launch was celebrated with massive party here in LA that did much to promote the new service to users. In May, Dr. Dre announced that his Beats company — including his line of headphones, speakers and the Beats Music streaming service — was sold to Apple for billions. Today we are hearing that Apple is planning to shut down Beats Music for good. The news hast not been confirmed officially by anybody but sources maintain that Beats Music is about to be dunzo. If you consider that Apple didn’t mention Beats Music at all when the announced the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 Plus or the Apple Watch earlier this month, it does seem likely that they are no longer interested in keeping the service alive at all. Wow. More »

Another Sunday, another trip down to Anaheim, CA to hang out with my peoples at Disneyland. Now that the temps have fallen from the 100s down into the 80s, it was practically WINTER here in SoCal yesterday.
