dave mustaine reflects on megadeth's debut: 'no one could figure out what we were doing'
the story’s been told countless times: megadeth founder-bandleader dave mustaine was literally sent packing when his brief but hugely pivotal tenure as lead guitarist for metallica came to an abrupt end. according to anthrax guitarist scott ian’s account in his 2014 autobiography i’m the man: the story of that guy from anthrax, mustaine had passed out in his clothes the night before, so his then-bandmates seized the opportunity and stuck him on a cross-country greyhound bus from new york to los angeles while he was still only semiconscious. the date was april 11, 1983, and mustaine hasn’t stopped talking about his former band since.not long after getting back to l.a., mustaine -- whom ian refers to as “arguably the godfather of thrash” -- founded megadeth and threw himself into his own career with a literal vengeance. his answer to metallica’s seminal 1983 debut, kill ’em all, was megadeth’s killing is my business... and business is good!, which will be reissued (for a second time) as a deluxe package on june 8 via century media.although recorded with even more raw production values than kill ’em all (mustaine and company infamously spent half the recording advance on intoxicants), the album showcases the prog and jazz leanings that set megadeth apart from its peers. instant thrash classics like “rattlehead,” “the skull beneath the skin” and the title track feature all the elements that defined the band’s sound even at that early stage: dueling l...

r. kelly will be the subject of a new film at hulu. buzzfeed news is developing a feature documentary for hulu that will explore the sexual abuse allegations that have been leveled against the singer.  the film will be based on buzzfeed's ongoing coverage of the claims brought against kelly, which began last year when the digital publisher released an in-depth expose from contributor jim derogatis detailing allegations that kelly was abusing and exploiting young black women. it will feature interview with key figures in the story, including survivors of kelly's alleged sex cult and the singer's associates. derogatis, who will serve as a consulting producer on the film, will also provide commentary. buzzfeed news is producing the project, which is being directed by lyric cabral (terror). citizenfour director laura poitras and her field of vision co-founder charlotte cook will serve as executive producers. the project was developed by buzzfeed news' linzee troubh and shani hilton.allegations of sexual misconduct have dogged kelly for years. but they had little impact on his career until last year, when derogatis, with editing from buzzfeed news deputy national editor marisa carroll, published his expose detailing new abuse and exploitation claims against the singer. the reporting helped to spur a #muterkelly campaign, causing the cancellation of several of his concerts. earlier this year, the time's up organization put their voice behind the movement, calling on comp...

pres. trump cancels north korea summit, citing 'open hostility'
president donald trump canceled the planned june 12 summit with north korea’s kim jong un thursday (may 24), citing the “tremendous anger and open hostility” in a recent statement from the north.trump said in a letter to kim released by the white house that based on the statement, he felt it was “inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting.” he added that the north koreans talk about their nuclear capabilities, “but ours are so massive and powerful that i pray to god they will never have to be used.”the north korean statement that he referred to called vice president mike pence a “political dummy” for his comments on the north and said north korea is just as ready to meet the u.s. in a nuclear confrontation as at the negotiating table. trump said in his letter that the world is losing a “great opportunity for lasting peace and great prosperity and wealth” now that their summit has been canceled.the president agreed to the historic sit-down in march after months of trading insults and nuclear threats with the north korean leader. but after criticism from north korea, trump cast doubt this week on whether the meeting would happen.read trump's letter below.

biffy clyro's `medicine` didn't make the hour-long mtv live cut of the british group's mtv unplugged live at the roundhouse london telecast on may 26. but the song -- originally on 2016's ellipsis and premiering exclusively below -- is on the full-length release coming out may 25, and is one of the group's favorites to play in the unplugged setting.`'medicine's' natural habitat is acoustic,` frontman simon neil tells billboard. `it felt good to play it with a four-part harmony thing at the end. it's one of those songs that's really quite intense without having any dynamic to it. so it was a no-brainer to put that in the unplugged set.`biffy clyro's mtv unplugged was filmed last nov. 8 as the first performance of the u.k. relaunch for the popular series. the upcoming release features 15 songs from the group's career, plus a cover of the beach boys' `god only knows` that neil loves so much he had the lyrics tattooed to his chest and was the song for his first wedding dance with his wife. `it's one of the songs i've loved for as long as i remember being conscious as a human,` he says. `i can never remember it not being in my life.` doing an mtv unplugged performance, meanwhile, was another milestone for the troupe.`i'm a child of the '90s,` neil notes, `so for me nirvana's unplugged, and pearl jam's and neil young's and all those unplugged records came out at a really important time for me in my development in music and as a guitari...

lydia premieres wes anderson-esque 'sunlight' video from upcoming 'liquor' album
lydia has a two-part video adventure for fans as it prepares for the july 13 release of its seventh album, liquor.the arty pop troupe starts with a clip for the opening track `sunlight,` premiering exclusively below, for which director adam villasenor cops a slightly unsettling wes anderson-style pastiche about a couple in the midst of a love-hate relationship that occasionally turns violent -- in contrast to the track's cheerful melodic countenance. the follow-up clip for the track, `let it cover me up,` will tell more of the tale.`it's kind of like a long short story,` lydia frontman leighton antelman tells billboard. `we've never done anything like that before, but i think adam did a really good job with it.` the song itself, antelman adds, `kind of came about as an accident. we were just flipping through different tracks that we had been messing around with over the course of two years and that one was kind of the most put together from the start. we didn’t' really do much to it. it's just a light-hearted track that kind of came together -- although the video puts kind of a dark spin on it. i just like to let people take whatever they want to take from the songs, y'know?`the liquor album, meanwhile, is the product of considerable effort on the part of antelman and bandmates matt keller and shawn strader. work began on the set after the group came off the road from promoting 2015's run wild, working separately in their own home studios and also c...

tim mcgraw sings 'humble and kind' in spanish: 'nunca te olvides de amar'
the rant from an attorney at a starbucks this week notwithstanding, spanish is all around us now. in a good way. a telling example is country star tim mcgraw's spanish-language version of his poignant anthem, `humble and kind.` titled “nunca te olvides de amar” (which literally translates to “never forget to love”), the track is performed entirely in spanish by mcgraw. “i’ve said repeatedly that ‘humble and kind’ has a universal message, so singing the song in spanish, for me, is a way to really stand up to that statement,” said mcgraw. “it’s one thing to say ‘i’m being universal’ and it’s another thing for me to try to reach out across a language barrier and put in the effort to deliver that same message. to make someone understand that you’re trying to love them through a song and work to make people feel it is a pretty cool thing. my spanish may not be perfect, my accent may not be perfect, but if i can reach out and touch someone in a language that’s not my own – that’s a good enough reason enough to try,” said mcgraw.“humble and kind,” with its message of humility and civility (“hold the door, say please say thank you, don't steal, don't cheat, and don't lie, i know you got mountains to climb, but always stay humble and kind”), is particularly relevant in today’s intolerant times. the song written by lori mckenna was adapted into spanish by acclaimed singer/songwriter claudia brant (a frequent collaborator o...

hours after donald trump coined the term `spygate` to refer to a conspiracy theory that the fbi spied on his 2016 presidential campaign under the obama administration, late-night hosts took to their respective stages to dismiss the unsubstantiated claims and poke fun at the name.on late night, seth meyers brought up `spygate` during his monologue, joking that he wasn't even sure `spygate` denoted a conspiracy theory. `knowing trump, that might just be how he spells 'spaghetti,'` he said. he then addressed trump, saying, `stop trying to make 'fetch' happen, you're not allowed to name things anymore,` and name-checked the former trump taj mahal hotel and casino in atlantic (now the hard rock hotel & casino atlantic city) and his son donald trump jr. as examples why he shouldn't.meyers also devoted his daily `closer look` segment in part to the president's early wednesday morning tweetstorm about his conspiracy theory and robert mueller's special investigation into russian interference in the 2016 election. speaking after a clip of trump proclaiming that the administration is calling his theory `spygate,` meyers joked, `also, you're the only one calling it spygate. trump's like a guy who tries to give himself a new nickname and tries to pretend it's catching on. 'i'm donald trump, and everyone calls me d-trizzy.'`he added, `it would be scary if it weren't so transparent: trump's only move is to do to the fbi what the fbi is doing to him.`stephe...

recording academy ceo neil portnow accused by fired staffer of funneling funds from musicares charity
recording academy chairman and president neil portnow has been accused by a former staff member of steering money away from the organization's musicares charity in order to fund a deficit from this year's grammy telecast. on monday, as variety first reported, former musicares vp dana tomarken detailed her allegations in a letter to the recording academy board of trustees, which is holding its annual meetings in hawaii this week. tomarken also claimed portnow brokered a deal to hold musicares' annual person of the year event at radio city music hall without her knowledge, resulting in a loss in 2018 fundraising that projected just $1 million for this year's event -- a significant drop from the $5 million raised in 2017. a recording academy spokesperson denies that any money was funneled away from musicares.in the nearly 4,500-word letter, which was obtained by billboard, tomarken, who was fired on april 16 after 25 years with the academy, also claimed wrongful termination, saying the cause was a $2,500 bill for a musicares auction item that she was late in paying. she said her coworker dorit kalev was fired in connection to that as well, alleging `biased feelings` towards her from the academy's chief human resources officer. meanwhile, tomarken claimed she endured `ongoing instances of workplace abuse and harassment` from two male coworkers and her dismissal came following `a painful year of trying to protect musicares from being exploited.` a heading in her lett...

glenn snoddy, nashville engineer & inventor of the fuzz pedal, dies at 96
the name glenn snoddy might not be well known by the general music fan, but he helped to usher in one of the most exciting -- and financially viable -- eras of country music history. snoddy, who passed away monday at the age of 96, was one of nashville's top engineers beginning in the 1940s.snoddy -- who began his career as a radio engineer and eventually worked his way up to `the air castle of the south,` wsm am 650 -- helped to establish castle studios as one of the first major recording spots in music city and also spent time working at the quonset hut. it was there that he helped to oversee sessions from many of the legends of the format -- including hank williams (snoddy engineered williams' last recording session in 1952), johnny cash and marty robbins. it was with the latter that he would make a little nugget of recording history.in 1960, snoddy was at the bradley brothers-owned quonset hut working on a session with robbins for columbia records. all of a sudden, he heard something a little different. about a minute and a half into the song, `don't worry,` grady martin's guitar made somewhat of a distorted sound instead of the usual smooth style he was known for. `we thought there was something wrong, and something was wrong,` snoddy told the murfreesboro daily news journal in the fall of 2016. `the transformer in the amplifier blew up.`it wasn't meant to be. it definitely wasn't planned. however, the sound -- different as it was -- was loved by martin's...

a federal judge in manhattan ruled wednesday (may 23) that president trump cannot block twitter users for expressing their political views -- including chrissy teigen, whom he blocked back in 2017.back in 2017, refinery29 reported that trump blocked the host and model over a series of trump jabs she made, with the final straw being a tweet that read “lolllllll no one likes you.”teigen posted a reaction video wednesday on twitter, in which she watches the news unfold on msnbc and makes a face that says it all, captioned “well well well we meet again.”will the president have to begrudgingly unblock teigen? it’s anyone’s guess as to what will happen next.
