‘Love Goes To Buildings On Fire: Five Years in New York that Changed Music Forever,’ by Rolling Stone contributor Will Hermes and available today, chronicles the period between 1973-1978 during which punk, hip-hop, salsa and other revolutionary forms of popular music were born or reinvented. In this exclusive excerpt, Hermes tells the stories of three era-defining musical beginnings: the collaboration of punk pioneers Tom Verlaine and Richard Hell, the early days of the New York Dolls and the legacy of jazz legend Sonny Rollins. Tom Miller was tripping his balls off on LSD in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware. The next thing he knew, a week later, he was in New York City, crashing in a crappy East Village apartment with his old friend Richard Meyers. They were both 19 years old. They’d met at Sanford, a boarding school for ne’er-do-wells and other types near Wilmington. Meyers was raised in Lexington, Kentucky, a town shadowed by the Lexington Narcotics Farm rehab facility, … [Read more...] about Exclusive Book Excerpt: ‘Love Goes To Buildings On Fire: Five Years in New York that Changed Music Forever’

George Shapiro , the deeply respected talent manager, producer and co-founder of Shapiro/West & Associates, died Thursday evening of natural causes at his home in Beverly Hills. He was 91. Along with his partner and childhood friend Howard West, Shapiro was personal manager to comedy greats Jerry Seinfeld , Andy Kaufman and Carl Reiner , among others. He and West would go on to executive produce Seinfeld , one of the top comedy series of all time. Born in New York, Shapiro spent summers during his teenage years as a lifeguard at the Tamiment Resort in the Poconos, where he met performers like Dick Shawn, Pat Carroll and Carol Burnett, singer Barbara Cook, and choreographer Herb Ross.

After a back-and-forth series that saw both teams at their best — and at their worst — it all comes down to this: the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat meet tonight in Game 7 of the NBA Eastern Conference finals, with the winner booking a date with the Golden State Warriors in the 2022 NBA Finals. Miami was pushed to the brink Friday night, facing elimination against a feisty Boston squad that was looking to return to the NBA finals for the first time since 2010. But led by Jimmy Butler’s whopping 47 points (to go along with nine rebounds and four steals), the Heat came alive in Game 6, taking down the Celtics by a score of 111-103. That forces a deciding Game 7, with a trip to the NBA championships on the line. Here’s how to get tickets to watch the Heat vs. Celtics in Miami and how to stream Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals … [Read more...] about How to Watch the Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat Game 7 Livestream Online
Sidse Babett Knudsen, star of returning Danish political TV drama Borgen , has rejected the idea that the series may continue past its brand new fourth season, set to debut in the US and UK on Netflix on June 2. While its creator Adam Price, who wrote the hit previous three seasons as well as the forthcoming return, remains ambivalent, telling The Times of London , “Never say never” when asked about the prospect of carrying on, its female star remains emphatic. “No way. Birgitte is done.” ‘Birgitte’ is the politician at the centre of Borgen , a subtitled drama about Danish coalition politics that became an unlikely hit following its debut in 2012. Nine years have elapsed since the third season aired, but Price and his team were seduced by the lure of Netflix and the fourth season was announced back in 2020. While the first season aired before Denmark welcomed its first real-life female PM, this time around will see the show once again proving prescient, this … [Read more...] about “Birgitte Is Done!”: ‘Borgen’ Star Sidse Babett Knudsen Convinced Netflix Fourth Season Will Be The Last

The NRA ’s Grand Ole Night of Freedom Concert has been canceled. Country singer Jacob Bryant — the last man standing after six of the seven performers slated to perform pulled out of the show following the Uvalde school shooting — tweeted on Friday that “The show was canceled yesterday.” The concert was to be the Saturday night entertainment at the NRA Convention held this weekend in Houston, just 300 miles east of Uvalde, Texas, where 19 students and two teachers were killed Tuesday by a gunman wielding an assault rifle. While there has been no official statement by the NRA, Bryant’s tweet and a dead link to the concert’s webpage point to no show. An email by Rolling Stone to the NRA requesting comment went unreturned. The concert appeared to be in jeopardy on Thursday when Don “American Pie” McLean dropped out. Larry Gatlin, a conservative country singer who’s performed at past NRA conventions and Trump rallies, followed soon after. “I cannot, in good conscience, … [Read more...] about The NRA Country Concert Is Kaput
For the past couple of years, a 23-year-old producer from the suburbs of Buenos Aires has been challenging the mainstream of Latin music, one viral YouTube video at a time. Known to the world as Bizarrap , Gonzalo Julián Conde is one of the most streamed Latin American artists in the world thanks to his BZRAP sessions and their exhilarating fusion of hip-hop, trap, and EDM.
