Watch Nirvana & Paul McCartney Debut “Cut Me Some Slack” At 12-12-12: The Concert For Sandy Relief

We Are Plastic Ono Band (Feat. Eric Clapton, Paul Simon, Bette Midler, Sean Lennon & Friends) @ BAM, Brooklyn 2/16/10

A hefty price tag accompanied tickets to this very special one-off at Brooklyn Academy Of Music last night, a mix of simple supply-demand economics and, presumably, underwriting costs associated with corralling these names under one ornamented roof: The reconstituted, radicalized Plastic Ono Band boasted a lineup of legends and friends of Sean Lennon to survey… More »

New Steve Winwood (Feat. Eric Clapton) Video – “Dirty City”

We have a certain affinity for Steve Winwood. He’s written some great songs. And we heard his shows with Clapton a few weeks ago were pretty great. But why is he making videos? We don’t mean, like, he’s not allowed. Just that … where are people going to watch this? Well, Stereogum we guess. Anyhow,… More »

The Golden Road To Unlimited Procrastination

Hope you’re not busy for the next couple of days.
