The Rolling Stones used a studio in 1974 following a Led Zeppelin session. Jimmy Page decided to hang around and contributed to the track Scarlet. Mick Jagger recently rediscovered the track and included it on the 2020 rerelease of the Stones’ Goat’s Head Soup album.
As a gigantic fundraiser for the World Health Organization during the COVID-19 pandemic, some of the world’s biggest stars performed and made fundraising pitches to help eradicate the virus.

When Jennifer Lawrence talks…
— mother! (@MotherMovie) September 11, 2017
Even SNOPES (a known hoax site) had to weigh in on the overreaction.
Jennifer Lawrence responds:
“My remarks were taken grossly out of context. Obviously I never claimed that President Trump was responsible for these tragic hurricanes. That is a silly and preposterous headline.”
Promoting her new film MOTHER! on Jimmy Fallon’s show, Jen also talked about her trip to Louisville where ax throwing became a memorable moment (approx 6 minutes into video).
I hope this is the theme song for the crazy horror film MOTHER!
And since we’re looking ahead, here’s the first trailer for Jennifer’s next film Red Sparrow (opening March 2, 2018)
Happy New Year. My goal is to learn the accurate lyrics of many of the rock & roll songs I’ve loved throughout my life. Here are three tunes that have been somewhat hazy until I did a little research.
Well, OK. I didn’t do much research so thanks to the youtube nuts who did.
BTW, the headline refers to Elton John’s often misheard lyric “Hold me closer, tiny dancer.”
BONUS: Joe Cocker takes a clearly understandable Feelin’ Alright song and turns it into a garbled classic.
As boomers weep over a few rock star heroes dying, it’s a good time to appreciate the ones who are still above ground.
I wasn’t perceptive enough to know that Marvin Gaye’s dad was going to shoot him before I got a chance to tell him that “What’s Going On” redirected my life.
Once I heard the title track, well, mercy mercy me…inner city blues made me wanna holler, too.
This incredible album took me away from my white boy working class neighborhood to places that I hadn’t considered. My musical tastes and capacity for empathy grew exponentially.
But Marvin was gone long before I had a radio show that could have allowed me to thank him. It’s not too late for any of us to thank the people who led us down fascinating journeys of discovery.
Hit up Stevie Wonder or Graham Nash on Twitter to thank them for writing the soundtrack to your teen years. Yo, Aretha. Mad RESPECT! Hey Ted Nugent, I wango tango’d last night! Tito & Jermaine aren’t too busy to read your email. And Keith Richards would totally critique your latest batch of meth. Reach out and touch somebody’s hand before it assumes room temperature and we have to hear about it for a solid week on CNN.
Here are memorable musical offerings that twisted my head. Thanks, rock stars. Now get off my lawn. I’m old, too.
Thanks to That Eric Alper for posting. properly edited vocals = time saver
BONUS: Ooh, a storm is threatening.
