But these days, 60 is the new 30, and were seeing band after band and artist after artist continue, with varying levels of legitimacy, well into their twilight years. Speaking of Townshend, he and the Who have been engaged in the longest goodbye in rock history for something like 30 years now. The first Who Farewell Tour was in the early 1980s. But Townshend and Roger Daltrey just cant close the lid on the thing. Also in the You cried Wolf! once too often category the Eagles, who seem to be downright cynical in their serial final farewell, and we really mean it this time, now give us your money habits. The Eagles are hereby disqualified, as are the Beach Boys, who have been trotting around the globe decade after decade, pretending they arent a total joke without Brian Wilson in the band. Here are a few of the longest-running bands in rock history.

Chuck O’neil: Not As You Remember, But Better Than Ever | Bleacher Report

The Last of Us Movie Has “Pretty Big Changes,” But Still Faithful To The Game – Yahoo News

Since losing [to Chris Cope] and getting released by the UFC, I have changed things up. Ive found a better camp, a coach that really helps me out. Ive got another coach that really helps me out a lot now too, so I have a great team around me of coaches and training partners and everything. Without that experience of losing and looking like a jerk on national TV while losing, I wouldnt be where Im at today. Ive completely evolved as a person and a fighter since then. Life is often thought of as a winding road of twists and turns to an unknown location. We all have thoughts and dreams, but our itineraries in life are often realized upon arrival. As a kid, ONeil envisioned himself parading around in tights as a glorified stuntman in the world of professional wrestling. Its a dream of many young men when taking in the larger-than-life spectacle that is World Wrestling Entertainment. But things quickly changed when ONeil started watching the first season of The Ultimate Fighter. It was the show that changed everything for MMA, turning a dying sport into a billion-dollar empire.

He went on to say that the production team has already done a table read with “a bunch of actors,” though he didn’t say if Maisie Williams was one of them.

Spike Lee Talks Music, His Latest Film And The Time He Pissed Off Frank Sinatra

Sleater-Kinney: Punkers reunited, with many more eyes and ears to entertain

But he didnt like it. And in Jungle Fever, we wanted to use It Was a Very Good Year, Hello Young Lovers and another song, and he wasnt going to give them to me. I had to beg his daughter, Tina Sinatra, who does all this music stuff, to beg forgiveness. And then Frank Sinatra let us use those three songs. He was pissed his picture got burned in Do the Right Thing. Pissed. I dont know if he ever saw the film. I knew he loved Malcolm X, but I dont know if he saw Jungle Fever. What kinds of things do you write in these letters to these big acts? I really just try to convey how much I love their music and its not BS. And in the end, they respect my work.

Although his choice of materials and technology may shift, the one consistent element in Wrights work is his commitment to portraiture. Beginning with his earliest illustrations for the British rock music New Musical Express newspaper until today, the human face has been at the center of his work.

When the Medium Is the Message: Illustrator Ian Wright Uses Torn Paper Collage to Create Unique Images of Three Philadelphians

The single “Bury Our Friends” rides a brash, martial rhythm and asserts a determination to remain uncompromising (“Make me a headline, I want to be that bold”), even as the album displays a more accomplished pop sensibility: “We’re wild and weary, but we won’t give in.” Sleater-Kinney was surely America’s greatest punk band for the seven albums of its first existence, with a no-bass-player musical arsenal that included Tucker’s caterwauling, clarion-call voice, Weiss’ muscular attack, and Brownstein’s inventive collection of riffs, plus windmilling Pete Townshend stage moves. Though 2005’s The Woods contained probably the band’s prettiest ballad, the glistening “Modern Girl,” its sound had by then started to grow heavy and clotted, too Led Zeppy for its own good. A year later, they went on indefinite hiatus. Great bands break up all the time, and almost inevitably – save for Led Zep, bless Robert Plant’s heart – they get back together years later, in all but rare cases with new material that fails to measure up to the classic catalog. So what’s different about Sleater-Kinney? And why do they get so much attention? For one thing, many more eyes are now on the band because of Portlandia, the hit Independent Film Channel sketch-comedy show in which Brownstein stars with Saturday Night Live alum Fred Armisen. All three members of S-K – the band takes its name from a road in Lacy, Wash., that ran by one of their first rehearsal places – were busy while apart. Tucker, a mother of two, released two albums credited to the Corin Tucker Band.

Whether using recording tape (Sting), salt (Grandmaster Flash), paper cones (Jimi Hendrix), push pins (John Lennon) and most recently, torn paper (the rapper T.I.), Wright playfully adopts both analog and digital methods to draw arresting pictures that are both provocative and insightful. Wright began his career as a commercial illustrator. His innovative, experimental images, in a variety of mediums and using new developments in technology attracted a whos who of cutting edge music and fashion idols to his studio. In over 30 years, his work has remained freshcool, sophisticated, but simple and just hip enough to be featured on record sleeves and in indie music and design magazines as well The New Yorker, New Scientist and The Guardian.

By contrast, Sleater-Kinney – which kicks off a U.S. tour next month that comes Feb. 28 to a sold-out Union Transfer in Philadelphia – was three supremely confident women. They emerged from the Evergreen College music scene in Olympia, Wash., the same one that spawned riot-grrrl inventors Bikini Kill, feminist record label Kill Rock Stars, and, more recently, Macklemore. Then, as now, Sleater-Kinney musicians were never reticent or apologetic about anything.

‘the Who’s Tommy’ Comes To Paramount | Naperville Sun

Spike Lee talks music, his latest film and the time he pissed off Frank Sinatra

It used to be that a song had a verse, then a chorus, then a verse, then a chorus, and it was pretty repetitive; very conventional, Vendafreddo said. Townshend and The Who started writing expanded sequences and it became narrative. The Whos 1969 double album Tommy is the first true pop masterpiece and it brings it all together. Its rock n roll in a new way. The Whos Tommy will be presented from Jan. 14 to Feb. 15 at the Paramount Theatre in Aurora. The rock opera is based on the 1969 double concept album by The Who. Jim Corti, the shows director, thinks the music is a huge part of the shows appeal. Every song from the album was on top of the charts, Corti said. Then it was done as a rock concert for a while. It wasnt until 1993 when Townshend teamed up with Des McAnuff that it became a rock opera (on the stage). There is also a movie version of the show, which came out in 1975.

His film was on PBS [Monday] night, Evolution of Criminal. There’s a lot of talent out there, its just the same old story. Its a matter of getting the financing to get it done. It seems like every year, theres always one black filmmaker who’s nominated for the big awards, like Ava DuVernay [director of Selma and the first black female director to be nominated for a Golden Globe].

We are inside the little boys mind, Corti continued. How that looks versus real time. We go from inner space to real time. We go back and forth. In the inner mind there is light, sound and color. Its almost like a hallucination of sight and sound. He becomes like a rock star. The whole thing takes place in a kind of rock n roll universe. It is meant to be that kind of spectacle. Also a bit of a spectacle is the music. There are some extended instrumental pieces in the show, said Vendafreddo, who is conducting an eight-piece orchestra. When the band would play the album, they would jam. The musical incorporates that jam session aspect. There is no improvisation any longer.

Phelps to a man’s voice. And I won’t call it “Miss Phelps” because that would take away from the whole ambience: I’m going for that voice on the old reel-to-reel tapes that Peter Graves (the real Mr. Phelps) would pick up in odd places at the beginning of every “Mission: Impossible” TV episode. You just don’t get the same effect with “Good Morning, Ms. Phelps.” But I digress. I don’t find Siri’s “personality” charming. Siri is a part of a tool known as a smartphone. Period. I don’t need tools smarting off.

Or, you could sit them down with a beer and their 50-year-old original singles, and make your job a damn sight easier. Back in 1965, The Who released their first song, the single ‘I Can’t Explain’. Designed as a semi-copy of The Kinks, it barely made its way onto the US singles chart, peaking at 93. But despite that, it’s stayed on as a staple of Who concerts ever since and yes, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, the original front man and guitarist, are still touring (and surprisingly good live). If you’ve not been a Who fan before now, though, it’s a good year to start and ‘I Can’t Explain’ is the perfect song to start with.

Tampa Bay things to do: 15 ways to have the most awesome year ever | Things to do in Tampa Bay | Tampa Bay Times

Movie still from "STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS."

You won’t regret it. The Who Maybe it’s fitting that The Who will kick off the North American leg of their 50th anniversary tour on Tax Day, April 15. With VIP packages for this gig at Amalie Arena topping out at more than $800, you might have to fudge a few numbers on next year’s forms in order to afford a ticket. Only singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend remain from the iconic British rockers’ classic lineup, but they’ve promised a show filled with hits from their entire half-century-spanning catalog My Generation and Who Are You, Pinball Wizard and Baba O’Riley, I Can’t Explain and Won’t Get Fooled Again.
