If not actually working on the project with me then cheering me on. I even got to write with a few friends outside of –...

Get Back: 5 Surprising Reveals From Peter Jackson’s In-Depth Beatles Docuseries

Even when it comes to a band as frequently discussed and examined as the Beatles, there are still surprises to be found in their rich history. That’s just one of the reasons why The Beatles: Get Back, the three-part documentary series now streaming on Disney+, is such engrossing viewing. Working with over 55 hours of footage originally shot by Michael Lindsay-Hogg, director Peter Jackson has created an intimate look at John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison, captured both in the act of creation as well as conflict. With a runtime of 468 minutes, it’s an understatement to say that Get Back reveals a lot about what happened in the course of making the album Let It Be. But below are a few of the more unexpected revelations to come from Jackson’s approach to the source m...

The Beatles: Get Back Is a Comprehensive Time Capsule of the Fab Four’s Last Hurrah: Review

The Pitch: In January of 1969, the Beatles, wearing by internal tensions and alienated through years of not touring together, attempted to do the impossible: get back together to craft not only a new album but to record it live in concert, without any overdubs or studio tricks. Not only that, they wanted to film a TV special to coincide with the album’s release, which necessitated the hiring of director Michael Lindsay-Hogg and the building of Twickenham Film Studios into an erstwhile rehearsal space. On top of all that, they had just four weeks to pull this all off. The results were bittersweet: The album was released to muted fanfare (though it’s since been reappraised), and the ambitious TV special was whittled down to a now-iconic live concert atop the roof of Apple headquarters. ...

Brody Dalle Found Guilty of Contempt in Josh Homme Custody Case

Kid Rock Self-Flagellates to Conservative Tropes on His New Song “Don’t Tell Me How to Live”

Credit where credit is due: Kid Rock packaged all of the tired conservative tropes into a single piece of recorded audio that masquerades as a new song called “Don’t Tell Me How to Live.” “My way or the highway, listen up/ Ain’t nothing changed here, I still don’t give a fuck,” Kid Rick whines in the opening verse. “So what the fuck’s up with all the backlash/ You snowflakes, here’s a newsflash.
