Eddie Vedder Joins the Who for Powerhouse “Quadrophenia” Show

March 31st, 2010
Photograph by Fleur Neale There was an elegiac quality to the Who’s performance of Quadrophenia at London’s Royal Albert Hall last night, which marked the 10th anniversary of benefit shows in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust charity. Roger Daltrey, the prime mover behind the benefit, has said that this is the last time the Who will stage their 1973 rock opera (they first toured it in 1996), and Pete Townshend, who is suffering from ...

Usher Guests, Bowersox and DeWyze Score on “American Idol”

March 31st, 2010
Photo: Becker/FOX Newly single Usher, promoting his latest album Raymond v. Raymond, pulled an Andrew Lloyd Webber on Tim Urban during last night’s American Idol, instructing “Teflon Tim” to sing to him as though Usher was an alluring lady (it wasn’t quite the come-on Webber presented to David Cook two seasons ago: “I’m a gorgeous 17-year-old girl from the chorus”). Still, Usher oozed star power and the 10 remaining hopefuls largely did not. The R&B/soul night ...

“Glee” Gone Wild: The New Issue of Rolling Stone

March 31st, 2010
Photograph by Mark Seliger With its group dance numbers and earnest covers of songs like Journey’s buoyant “Don’t Stop Believin’,” Glee seems like the sunniest show on TV. But darkness lurks just barely below the surface — the series also seamlessly weaves in plots about teen pregnancy, scheming wives and the most hard-hearted cheerleading coach to ever grip a whistle. Rolling Stone’s Erik Hedegaard ventures into the Fox hit’s most controversial corners, uncovering the stories behind ...

News Ticker: Michael Jackson, Record Store Day, Madonna, Pearl Jam

March 31st, 2010
Joe Jackson plans to file a wrongful death suit against Dr. Conrad Murray, the man charged with Michael’s death, within the next 90 days, his attorney tells Reuters. “The continuous administration of drugs … that is Russian roulette, that is loading six bullets into a gun with only six chambers,” lawyer Brian Oxman said. The Flaming Lips, Sonic Youth and Pavement have announced new contributions to April 17th’s Record Store Day, which as RS reported, will ...

New Reviews: Erykah Badu, Meth Ghost Rae and Usher

March 30th, 2010
Erykah Badu’s New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh, the eccentric Dallas soul singer’s follow-up to 2008’s New Amerykah Part One: 4th World War, leads this week’s pack of new releases. While Part One found Badu dipping into electronic sounds, “Part Two revives Badu’s romantic side, and at its best it places her on a sun-splashed day in 1972,” Jody Rosen writes. “On the gorgeous “Window Seat,” [Check out the NSFW video here] her ...

LCD Soundsystem Reveal Cover for May 18th LP “This Is Happening”

March 30th, 2010
Just when we were growing fond of calling LCD Soundsystem’s upcoming album “TBA,” James Murphy and Co. revealed today on their DFA Records site that the band’s third album will have a proper title, This Is Happening. Accompanying news of the title was Murphy’s Twitter announcement, “Well, we finally made a cover…,” which is that sideways portrait up top of Murphy dancing. The cover image features a stylistic motif reminiscent of David Bowie’s Lodger, and ...

Strokes, Libertines In Demand: Has 2000s Nostalgia Already Begun?

March 30th, 2010
Photo: Winter/ImageDirect (Strokes), Allan/WireImage (Libertines) The announcement that the Libertines are reforming for U.K. gigs this summer got us thinking: is the world already nostalgic for the music of the 2000s? We realize we’re not even four months into this new decade, but the evidence seems to be there — especially when you consider that the Strokes are also returning for big shows this summer. “Should I say the truth [about why we're playing gigs?],” ...
