It promises to be a nice slice of rock and roll history. The film will debut in London in March, although no word yet on a U.S release, if you join the club we will let you know when it does.
How many times have you heard a song and wondered-what did they just sing? But how many times do you THINK you know..so THOSE words are in your head?
For example, once a friend of mine thought the words to Billy Idol's “Eyes Without a Face” were “How’s about a Date." When I told her what it really was she shrugged and said “My version makes more sense”
Beauty, and it seem sense are in the ears of the beholder.

Any thought that MAYBE the remaining memebers of thd Doors might some day finally patch things up and play nice together are squashed now. Doors drummer John Densmore is set to release a new autobiography via Seattle’s own Amazon. And it sounds like it's pretty snarky.

The Super Bowl is still a few days away and already two commercials are getting some flack..and one has even been pulled!
Taco Bell has been accused of making an "anti veggie" Super Bowl Commercial. According to ABC-after a Twitter uproar, Taco Bell pulled an ad encouraging people to pass on the veggies and opt for its 12-pack of tacos instead.

Volkswagen has released a commercial online that according to the website SuperBowl Commercials “ celebrates Volkswagens, a Caribbean take on life, and making people feel better.

A few music related movies premiered at The Sundance Festival, and while alot of people are talking about the Dave Grohl directed flick there’s another movie coming out of the festival that is getting some buzz too.
It’s called "Twenty Feet From Stardom", a documentary that explores the culture of supporting/backup singers.
The film includes interviews with artists who are known for their use of backup singers, including Mick Jagger, Bruce Springsteen, and Sting. Many well-known supporting vocalists are also interviewed, including Darlene Love, Merry Claytonand Lisa Fischer. â¨
Twenty Feet also explores the psychology of standing in the shadows of super-stardom and the lack of individual identity – which, depending on the singer, can feel like bliss or purgatory.
The movie was picked up by the Weinstein Company and should be released soon. When it comes out you’ll be the first to know if you join the club.
