The Verve’s Richard Ashcroft Compares ABKCO to Gangsters | News | Consequence of Sound
English singer-songwriter compares ABKCO to gangsters on the new Kyle Meredith With...
Former Verve singer Richard Ashcroft is still incredibly bitter over “Bittersweet Symphony”.
If you recall, the juggernaut single off 1997’s Urban Hymns was part of a lawsuit involving the late Allen Klein and ABKCO Music & Records, Inc., who essentially ran away with the rights to the song after EMI and the band tried to negotiate the use of a sample. That sample, of course, was an instrumental version of The Rolling Stones’ “The Last Time” that had appeared on an album by the Andrew Loog Oldham Orchestra. (ABKCO owns the rights to The Rolling Stones’ catalog.)

George H.W. Bush: Father of Trumpism? - WhoWhatWhy
Yeah, I know, speak no ill of the dead, and all that. So, as the nation mourns the loss of former president, George H.W. Bush, this week, I take up my pen with some degree of trepidation.
We will hear a lot about what a decent man Bush was, and that’s true. He was a nice guy, a good family man, a war hero and, I say with no small degree of nostalgia, not crazy. (Yet, in light of the horror show of a president now in our White House, even Richard Nixon looks less evil.)
But GHWB marked a turning point for his party and the nation. I say that because I was there when it happened, and I have never forgotten it.
It was 1992, the Republican nominating convention in Houston, Texas. I was covering it for two publications, a business paper in New York, and Mother Jones magazine in San Francisco.

George H.W. Bush Shaped History — But Not the Way We’re Told - WhoWhatWhy
In the coming days, the media will be filled with reminiscences and reviews of former President George H.W. Bush’s storied life and political career. But most won’t report — and few actually know — the backstory of Bush’s role in building an interlocking family, business and intelligence network that charted the nation’s course for decades. That work was secret, and predated his known (and very brief) intelligence career by decades.
Bush, who died Nov. 30 at age 94, is being remembered with nostalgia as emblematic of a supposedly more civil and genteel era, when US leaders put country first. But George H.W. Bush and his associates had a profound effect in shaping a power equation — mostly in ways they sought to obscure — that protected and advanced their interests.
With days of Bush tributes and retrospectives ahead, we think it’s a good time to offer a more complete picture. To provide readers with that missing historical background, we present a revealing excerpt from WhoWhatWhy founder and Editor-in-Chief Russ Baker’s book, Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, America’s Invisible Government, and the Hidden History of the Last Fifty Years.

George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton's Famous Friendship - The Atlantic
In his later years, the 41st president became quite close with his successor, the man who kept Bush from a second term in the Oval Office.
In early March 2005, in George W. Bush’s second term as president, former President Bill Clinton underwent chest surgery right around the time that Bush was hosting the Gridiron Club Dinner in Washington, D.C. At the dinner, Bush gave a lighthearted update on Clinton’s progress; he told the audience that as Clinton had recovered from his procedure, “he woke up surrounded by his loved ones: Hillary, Chelsea … and my dad.”
The most notable partnership in the life of former President George H. W. Bush, who died Friday at the age of 94, was, of course, the one he shared with Barbara Bush, his wife of 73 years who died in April; they were married longer than any other U.S. president and his spouse. But in the last decade and a half of his life, Bush entered into another companionship that would both enrich his personal life and intrigue the public: a close friendship with Clinton. “I will be forever grateful for the friendship we formed,” Clinton wrote in a joint statement with his wife, Hillary Clinton, after Bush’s death.

Daring Fireball: George H.W. Bush, 41st President, Dies at 94
Adam Nagourney, The New York Times...
By far and away — I mean it’s not even close — my favorite Republican president since Eisenhower. I respect him deeply: from his lifelong commitment to public service, to his genuine bipartisanship. The collapse of the Soviet Union could have gone very, very wrong under less steady U.S. leadership. And at a personal level, George and Barbara Bush were married for 73 years. 73 years!
There is a rule that will never be written but can clearly be felt that a president can only be eulogized by another president, and that job clearly falls to George W. That’s a hell of a thing, but he’s going to nail it.

0DAYROX ► Melodic Rock, AOR, Hard Rock, Prog, Classic Rock news: BADLANDS - Dusk [digitally remastered reissue]
To complete the BADLANDS discography, as requested, now we have here the digitally remastered reissue of "Dusk", the third and final album by the Jake E. Lee and Co.
"Dusk" is a collection of songs recorded by themselves in 1992-1993, for their 3rd LP.
All songs were recorded live into the studio, in one take. However, it's a professional 24-track full studio recording to be submitted to Atlantic Records to hear and give the band a budget for the full recording of the same tunes.
They did not like the direction of the songs, arguing the musical climate in the business was changing. Some months later Badlands was dropped from Atlantic.

0DAYROX ► Melodic Rock, AOR, Hard Rock, Prog, Classic Rock news: BADLANDS - Voodoo Highway [Rock Candy Remastered] Out Of Print
And here's the other BADLANDS album - their second titled "Voodoo Highway"- remastered by Rock Candy Records, now with a complete 16 full color booklet including rare photos and a 4000+ full essay about the making of the record.
As happened with Badlands self-titled debut, these Rock Candy reissues were on sale only few months due to Ray Gillen's estate / family claim. So this "Badlands Voodoo Highway Rock Candy Remaster" was retired from the market and it's now a collectors item.

0DAYROX ► Melodic Rock, AOR, Hard Rock, Prog, Classic Rock news: BADLANDS - Badlands +1 [Rock Candy Remastered] Out Of Print
This great album was requested again: BADLANDS first, self-titled album "Badlands" remastered by Rock Candy Records with a bonus track, now with a complete 16 full color booklet including rare photos and a 4000+ full essay about the making of the record.
The Rock Candy reissue appeared some years ago alongside Badlands' second record, and it was about time for these killer albums to receive a remaster and become available again as the original CD pressings were long time out of print being sold on eBay for a jillion dollars...
But guess what... both Badlands Rock Candy remasters were on sale only few months due to Ray Gillen's estate / family claim.
So this "Badlands Rock Candy Remaster" reissue was retired from the market and it's Out Of Print again.

0DAYROX ► Melodic Rock, AOR, Hard Rock, Prog, Classic Rock news: KAREN LAWRENCE and Blue By Nature - Best Of Live [remastered] (2018)
After the two excellent 1994 band remastered albums featured here, some of you asked for more material of vocalist KAREN LAWRENCE. She just released a new album recorded with his band KAREN LAWRENCE and Blue By Nature, titled "Best Of Live [remastered]".
A stage performer continually since the age of 9, she fronted her first band, a blues outfit, at the age of 13. As front woman for the A&M Records band 1994 (produced by Jack Douglas) Lawrence’s distinctive and emotive vocal stylings frequently put her on international critics’ "Best Female Singer" lists. Wrote Kerrang! ; "it was 1994's Karen Lawrence who gave the others the choice of being second best or giving up".

Dave Grohl Reveals Grunge Classic He'd Listen To 'When I Was Lonely' - AlternativeNation.net
The Ringer have up a new article on the 25th anniversary of Nirvana’s Unplugged performance. In the piece, Dave Grohl praises a solo album by then Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan.
One of the musicians he respected most, the man he called his favorite performer, was Lead Belly. Cobain’s take on the early 20th-century folk singer’s version of “Where Did You Sleep Last Night”—itself an adaptation of “In the Pines”—was the night’s last song. Cobain had played guitar and added background vocals on friend Mark Lanegan’s cover of the track, which appeared on the Screaming Trees frontman’s 1990 solo album The Winding Sheet.
