He recorded the Beatles in 1969 for the then-disintegrating band’s final album, “Let It Be,” and was the one who suggested they play a gig on the roof of Apple Corps’ London headquarters. “It was a difficult time for them,” Johns said. “But equally I also witnessed them having a really good time and being hysterically funny and just ordinary blokes.” Johns describes several lightning-bolt musical moments, like hearing Led Zeppelin for the first time after Jimmy Page, an old friend, asked Johns to record his new band. “My jaw was on the floor for the next week,” he said.

23, 2014.Baiju Sunder/AP Today’s Morning Edition music is from a group that was first known as the Detours. For a while they were known as the High Numbers. Pete Townsend thought they should be called The Hair. But 50 years ago today the band began a 16-week engagement at London’s Marquee Club with a name that would stick: The Who. They would soon release their first single “I Can’t Explain,” which Townsend says he wrote to sound like the music of another British band they admired: The Kinks. It would make it to No. 8 on the UK pop chart.

Johns, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012, is still working, recording the likes of Ryan Adams and Band of Horses. Surprisingly enough, he owes some of his good health to Keith Moon, the hell-raising drummer for The Who, who once agreed to quit drinking if Johns kicked his 60-a-day cigarette habit. Moon, who died in 1978, didn’t, but Johns did. After half a century, Johns’ enthusiasm for the job still hasn’t waned. “I can’t wait to get back in the studio,” he said.

In 1969, Bob Dylan asked Johns to help him make a record with The Beatles and The Stones. Members of those bands expressed varying degrees of interest, but Paul McCartney and Mick Jagger were dead-set against it, and the ultimate super-group collaboration never happened. Johns, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012, is still working, recording the likes of Ryan Adams and Band of Horses. Surprisingly enough, he owes some of his good health to Keith Moon, the hell-raising drummer for The Who, who once agreed to quit drinking if Johns kicked his 60-a-day cigarette habit.

Miley Cyrus Poses for Most Tame Photo Shoot in a Long Time! | Celebrity Pets, Miley Cyrus, Terry Richardson : Just Jared

Updated at . Comments Miley Cyrus’ dog died back in April, setting off a downward spiral of depression for the singer that had many fans concerned for her wellbeing. After word got out that Miley’s dog was killed by a coyote , much of the concern turned to outrage, and some of Miley’s Twitter followers accused her of being an unfit pet owner. Miley’s new dog Emu was all over her Instagram page over the weekend (It’s actually her second new dog since the coyote attack. She gave the first away, feeling that it was “too soon.”), and while she’s clearly in love, she wants to make sure everyone knows she hasn’t forgotten about the dear, departed Floyd: Mile Cyrus’ Dog Shrine That’s a video that Miley took of a wall in her house that serves as a shrine to Floyd. Regardless of how you feel about Miley’s abilities as a pet owner, certainly everyone can agree that the shrine video is kinda sweet, but more than a little creepy. Miley nearly went off the deep end in the weeks following Floyd’s death, so there’s a lot of pressure on Emu to serve as a stabilizing force for the eccentric singer. The fact that she named him after a different animal isn’t the most reassuring sign that she’s feeling sane and grounded these days.

She actually had gotten a puppy named Moonie (too) soon after Floyd’s death, and then surrendered that pup to a family friend, since she knew the pooch would be in good, nearby hands. That was a pretty criticized and questionable move, but… Cyrus is now ready to love a new pooch. She shared photos of her new fur baby. Below is the pic of Emu and Miley in bed with Emu, and her explanation via caption. Notice his middle name is the last name of Wayne Coyne , Miley’s Flaming Lips pal.

Miley Cyrus Reveals Shrine to Dead Dog Floyd on Instagram – The Hollywood Gossip

She definitely does [keep me grounded],’ Cyrus said. She does the dances with me the whole time. Sometimes she’ll be doing them wrong and I’ll notice I’m following her and doing the dance she’s doing. So it’s fun. ‘We just play with each other the entire show because it makes it easier when you have your family there. My mom [Tish] does the whole thing too, she’ll go to the front and do all the dances with me.’ Undisturbed: Miley was able to enjoy a relaxed day of shopping undisturbed by fans Helping out: Noah helped Miley out by pushing her own trolley laden with goods The not-so-typical teen clearly looks up to the Wrecking Ball hitmaker, and her Twitter profile picture reflects that familial bond. Noah has acted in several TV shows, and she’s best known for voicing the title role in the 2008 Hayao Miyazaki animated flick Ponyo. And Miley admitted her sister helps her avoid any onstage wardrobe malfunctions. Moonie’s back: Moonie, the dog Miley’s mother bought her to replace Floyd, made an appearance in a new photo shoot by Terry Richardson Moving on: While Miley was too upset to keep Moonie after Floyd’s death, she was thrilled to spend some time with the cute pooch recently Her Bangerz tour sees Cyrus don a variety of revealing outfits, including a range of high-cut leotards. But the former child star told 2Day FM she enlists the help of Noah, to avoid any unfortunate slips.
