JIMMY PAGE STANDS, CALM AND smiling, on the pavement outside his management office in London. The Led Zeppelin guitarist is taking a fresh-air break from the most extensive interview he has ever given to ROLLING STONE — more than eight hours over two days. Page is also reflecting on a question that comes up a lot in the conversation: how he looks back at the havoc and excess — the drugs, drinking, hotel trashing and sometimes worse — for which Led Zeppelin were notorious in the Seventies. “Would anyone still be interested in the mud shark if the music hadn’t been there?” Page replies, still smiling, when I mention the infamous never-totally-proved tale of a young woman, a fish and a Seattle motel in 1969. “Everything else was a side show. It’s part of the story. But there would be no story without the work we put into the songs, the shows we played. Without that, nobody would care about the other stuff.” The guitarist, now 68, is … [Read more...] about Jimmy Page: The Rolling Stone Interview
Reign when does mary return to scotland
Long before Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hit theaters last month, most box office analysts predicted that it would have no trouble winning the last three weeks in a row of 2016, with its reign possibly stretching into 2017 as well. So far, the analysts have been right, with Rogue One recently overtaking Captain America: Civil War as the second highest grossing movie at the domestic box office ($439.7 million) and seventh highest at the worldwide box office ($789.7 million). Entering its fourth weekend in theaters, it will go up against Sony's Underworld: Blood Wars as the only new movie in wide release, with limited release titles A Monster Calls and Hidden Figures also expanding nationwide. Even with this new competition, we're predicting that Rogue One will still find a way to end up on top of the box office heap this weekend. Even with this influx of new competition, following a weekend where no new movies debuted in wide release, none of these new competitors will likely get a wide … [Read more...] about Will Underworld 5 Take Down Rogue One at the Box Office?
There always comes a time when the learner tries to compete with, and become, the master. It happened with Van Gogh and Millet, Beethoven and Mozart, Kobe and MJ, Darth Vader and Obi-Wan. It happened with the Beatles on July 2nd, 1963, at London’s Maida Vale Studio, where the band were taping their fifth installment for the BBC of their Pop Goes the Beatles radio series. The Beatles were deep into their tenure as BBC regulars at this point. They would field requests mailed in from fans, blast through a raft of covers, some of which they’d never return to again, work in originals from their own burgeoning catalogue, and joke with the presenter, and, of course, themselves. It was a band as human jukebox, capable of excelling in all styles, while also dishing out that particular brand of Beatle-y jocosity. Between March of 1962 and May of 1965, the Beatles cut 52 BBC sessions, with the vast majority occurring during 1963, the year of their ascent, when … [Read more...] about Remembering the Beatles’ Greatest BBC Session

In 1985, shortly after U2 broke through in America, Rolling Stone named them the “band of the Eighties.” Over the course of 30 years and 16 cover stories, the magazine has forged a deep relationship with U2. The band’s new album, Songs of Experience, topped the charts in early December, meaning U2 now have a Number One album in each decade from the Eighties on. I first interviewed Bono in 2005, when we talked for 10 hours over a long weekend in Cancún, Mexico, starting an intimate dialogue about rock & roll, social justice, faith and the purpose of art. This interview picks up where that one left off, although this time the stakes are much higher. The election of Donald Trump and a rising wave of fascism in Europe had rocked Bono, as had a near-death experience he suffered while making Songs of Experience. While he still finds it difficult to talk about his “extinction event,” as he calls it, Bono opened up about its profound effect on both his … [Read more...] about Bono: The Rolling Stone Interview
