Daily Specials- THURSDAY
*Glenn Frey, guitarist of the Eagles who passed away on January 18th, will be honored in the Grammys with a tribute in charge of the remaining members of the band and Jackson Browne. The homage will include the participation of Eagles’ co-founders Don Hanley and Bernie Leadon, the guitarist Joe Walsh, the bassist Tim Schmit and Jackson Browne. Their performance will likely include the hit “Take it Easy,” which was one of the first most important hits of the band. The song was written primarily by Browne with contributions of Frey and sang by the latter. The Grammy Awards 2016 will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Monday and will air live on CBS.
*Paul McCartney has an interesting digital foray planned for this Valentine’s Day. McCartney and Skype have partnered to launch ten animated love themed Moji’s featuring exclusive new McCartney music. “It turned out to be a great laugh at the same time as challenging because you suddenly realize you’ve got to compress a musical interpretation of an expression into less than five seconds,” said McCartney. “It was like doing a huge crossword puzzle and coming up with all these solutions. And at the same time it was musical so it was great practice for me in the studio.” “I wanted it to sound sort of electronic,” he continues “so I wanted the signature to sound electronic rather than acoustic guitar, for instance. So I got the overall signature on the Moog in order to give it a modern flavor.”
*A new Netflix animated series for children titled “Beat Bugs” will feature major names singing some of the Beatles’ most beloved songs. Bands and artists who will contribute covers include Eddie Vedder, Sia, P!nk, James Bay, The Shins, Of Monsters and Men, Chris Cornell, Regina Spektor and more. Debuting in August 2016, the series will use the Beatles’ music to send encouraging messages to viewers. The show reached a deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, which allows them to use recorded covers from songs in the “Northern Songs” catalog, once owned by Michael Jackson. (Some of the covers include “Help!,” “All You Need Is Love,” “Come Together,” “Penny Lane,” “Yellow Submarine,” “Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” and “Magical Mystery Tour.”
*Four years after their induction into the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame, Guns N’ Roses are finally getting their own Legends of Rock exhibit. The exhibit will celebrate the band’s recently announced reunion by displaying a series of GNR-owned memorabilia. Items on display will include a Guns N’ Roses pinball machine owned by Slash, a black top hat that curls at the edges worn by Slash, a button down madras plaid shirt with cutoff sleeves worn by Axl Rose, a black Colorado Rockies short-sleeved jersey worn by Dizzy Reed, a Prototype Slash guitar handmade by Kris Derrig and black leather Converse high-top sneakers worn by Slash.
*Don Mclean has pleaded not guilty to a domestic violence charge ahead of his upcoming court date. The “American Pie” singer was arrested in Maine following an alleged fight with his wife, Patrisha, at their Camden home on January 18th. He was released on $10,000 bail and it was subsequently revealed his spouse had obtained a temporary restraining order to keep McLean away from her. The 70-year-old denied the accusations and blamed the incident on the “very painful breakdown” of his 29-year marriage, and the estranged couple has since agreed to work through its marital problems behind closed doors. His attorney, Walter McKee, confirmed Patrisha’s protection order had been lifted so the pair can resolve its issues.
