Damian Lillard Gives ‘NBA Live 15′ Soundtrack an Assist

The NBA Live 15 soundtrack clocks in at an hour and twenty-five minutes, which is probably twenty-five minutes longer than I spent playing NBA Live 14 before selling it last year. 5 Amazing Moments From Stephon Marbury’s Chinese Musical When it was released, Live 14 was basically a disaster. In the game’s defense, upgrades to graphics and AI behavior reportedly improved the experience months later, but by then, my copy was likely languishing on the shelves of a local GameStop.

The Lead Singer and the Web-Slinger: Gerard Way Talks ‘Spider-Man’

For a man whose band, the Goth-punk favorites My Chemical Romance, broke up last year, Gerard Way is busier than ever. Having long established parallel careers as a rock singer and an award-winning comic book writer (the first run of his original series, The Umbrella Academy , won an Eisner Award, the highest accolade in the comics industry), Way continues to pursue both. His first solo album, Hesitant Alien , came out at the end of September, while October 15th sees the arrival of Way’s first-ever story for Marvel Comics: a one-shot called Edge of Spider-Verse #5 . 10 Best Things We Saw and Heard at New York Comic Con Way’s story is one of five, each giving an alternate take on the Spider-Man mythology — which will lead up to an event series called Spider-Verse in which every iteration of the popular web-slinging superhero will be featured. Way’s version may be one of the most unusual: his Spider-Man is actually a Spider-Girl, a 14-year-old named Peni Parker (who may be the daughter of a certain Peter Parker).

Keith Urban Can’t Do An American Accent

Keith Urban paid a visit to The Bobby Bones Show to talk about life and “American Idol.” Even though he’s been in the US for 20 years, the Aussie still sports a thick accent from down under with a southern drawl. He gave an attempt at imitating Bobby…without much success.

‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Recap Season 4, Episode 1: ‘Monsters Among Us’

” American Horror Story ” has always been about one freak show or another; it’s just that this season actually takes place in the sideshow. The characters and events from the previous seasons sound like a club that Stefon from “Saturday Night Live” would make up: a murder house with a ghost who wears a rubber suit; a former Nazi scientist who experiments on his patients in an asylum; a beautiful swamp witch who listens to Stevie Nicks and can bring the dead back to life; a Louisiana grand dame who used to torture and kill her slaves and bathe in their blood; a sexy collegiate Frankenstein; a tragic take on E. Jane Cochrane; a psycho psychiatrist with a taste for wearing human skin and drinking breast milk; and So. Much More. It’s breathtaking, invigorating, and utterly bananas

Hear AC/DC’s Riff-Heavy New Song ‘Play Ball’

“Play Ball,” the first rollicking, riff-heavy track to emerge from the Aussie hard rockers’ upcoming Rock or Bust , has debuted online. Previously, a snippet of the song had aired during promos for Turner Sports’ Major League Baseball Postseason campaign. The song is a straightforward, meat-and-potatoes AC/DC cut that tops out at just under three minutes.

Fleetwood Mac Reunite With Christine McVie at Golden Minneapolis Show

Sixteen years of domestic life in the English countryside, playing with her dogs and baking cookies – that was apparently quite enough for Christine McVie. The singer and keyboardist rejoined Fleetwood Mac earlier this year, and, at 71, she’s touring with her old band – singer-guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, singer Stevie Nicks, drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie – for the first time since 1997. Readers’ Poll: The 10 Best Fleetwood Mac Songs Fleetwood Mac have been on the road plenty in the past few years. But fans have craved a reunion of the lineup that first cohered in 1974 and went on to record that best-selling classic of tuneful romantic turmoil, Rumours . McVie’s bandmates, apparently, felt the same way: Nicks in particular had lobbied for McVie’s return, making onstage pleas and sending emails.

Watch Brian Wilson, Weird Al, Conan Salute George Harrison at George Fest

Dozens of famous musicians gathered this weekend to honor the legacy of George Harrison at an event aptly named George Fest: A Night to Celebrate the Music of George Harrison. The event, which featured performances by the likes of Brian Wilson, Norah Jones and more, was one of many tributes to the Beatle, whose first six solo albums were recently compiled in a new box set, The Apple Years 1968-75 . The highlight was former Beach Boys Wilson and Al Jardine taking on “My Sweet Lord” with help from Heart’s Ann Wilson and Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne. The Many Solo Moods of George Harrison George Fest, which also featured performances by “Weird Al” Yankovic, Harrison’s son Dhani, and members of the Killers, Spoon, Velvet Revolver and more, took place on September 28th at Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre.

Ray Scott Pops a Cold One in ‘Drinkin’ Beer’ — Video Premiere

It takes a lot of confidence to rock a miniskirt — male or female, really — but Ray Scott has no problem showing off his lovely gams in the new video for “Drinkin’ Beer,” premiering exclusively on Rolling Stone Country . Johnny Cash’s 11 Coolest Covers “That wasn’t my idea,” Scott tells us about about a particular scene where he sports a nice denim number, “but someone brought it up and I said, ‘Hell yeah, I’ll take one for the team.’ You probably wont see a pair of legs anywhere that look any better than that.” “Drinkin’ Beer,” the first single from the North Carolina-bred artist with a mahogany voice, signature black hat and traditional tendencies, is an anthem to, you guessed it, the casual art of sipping PBR. Filmed on a lake near Lynchburg, Tennessee, the video’s all about the good times — and the selective vision (a.k.a.

10 Things We Learned at Blake Shelton’s ‘Sunshine’ Album Release Party

Earlier this month in New York, Blake Shelton treated a small crowd of about 100 people to an hour-long concert that showcased songs from his forthcoming album Bringing Back the Sunshine , which will be released on September 30th. That same day, the show, which was filmed and recorded in Tribeca’s intimate iHeartRadio theater, will be broadcast on Clear Channel radio stations all across the country. Blake Shelton Promises More Songs ‘About Getting Drunk’ In between most songs during his performance, Shelton took questions from radio host Bobby Bones, discussing everything from his whirlwind career to favorite underwear brand (whatever they sell at Walmart). Backed by a seven-piece band, the country superstar performed a nine-song set of new tunes and old favorites, opening with 2011’s chart-topping “Honey Bee” and closing with his latest ode to drinking away the blues, “Neon Lights.” When asked about the significance of the album’s uplifting title, Shelton was uncharacteristically soft spoken. “Who wants to bring back the clouds?” he asked, before explaining that the sound of his new record harkens back to the type of country music he made at the very beginning of his career
