The first wave of contestants in the Top 14 were revealed at the end of the April 7 episode of this revival on ABC hosted Ryan Seacrest. In episodes taped weeks ago, the remaining score of artists from the Top 40 were divided into two groups. Each one of these two dozen hopefuls had to perform both solo and in duets with celebrities in front of judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie.

Beatles Engineer Geoff Emerick Dies at 72

Tony Sokol Oct 3, 2018

Geoff Emerick helped change the way sound is captured in the recording studio.

The Beatles were well known for flouting official rules in order to push the limits of what could be captured on tape, and Geoff Emerick was one of their greatest enablers. Recording engineer and producer Geoff Emerick, best known for his work with the Beatles, died of a heart attack at the age of 72, according to Variety.

“Today, at around 2’o’clock, I was making my way back from Arizona to Los Angeles to go pick up Geoff so we could transport some gold records and platinum plaques to our show in Tucson,” Emerick's manager William Zabaleta said in a statement.

“While on the phone with Geoff Emerick, he had complications, dropped the phone. At that point I called 911, but by the time they got there it was too late. So Geoff suffered from

Fats Domino, New Orleans Music Legend, Dead at 89

Fats Domino, New Orleans Music Legend, Dead at 89
Fats Domino, the amiable rock 'n' roll pioneer whose steady, pounding piano and easy baritone helped change popular music while honoring the traditions of the Crescent City died Tuesday at the age of 89, the Jefferson Parish Coroner says.

The New Orleans musician's daughter said he died peacefully while surrounded by family and friends, CBS affiliate Wwl-tv reports.

In appearance, he was no Elvis Presley. He stood 5-feet-5 and weighed more than 200 pounds, with a wide, boyish smile and a haircut as flat as an album cover. But Domino sold more than 110 million records, with hits including "Blueberry Hill," ''Ain't It a Shame" and other standards of rock 'n' roll.

He was one of the first 10 honorees named to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the Rolling Stone Record Guide likened him to Benjamin Franklin, the beloved old man of a revolutionary movement. The magazine listed Domino at No. 25 in its list of

Fats Domino, Rock and Roll Pioneer, Passes Away at 89

Fats Domino, Rock and Roll Pioneer, Passes Away at 89
The world of music and entertainment is in mourning once again after a true legend has passed away. Music icon Fats Domino, who helped shape rock and roll and pop music as we know it, passed away early this morning at the age of 89. Mark Bone, chief investigator with the Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, coroner's office, confirmed that the music legend died of natural causes at 3:30 Am on Tuesday. The musician leaves behind a legacy that few can come close to in the music industry.

Fats Domino was born Antoine Domino Jr. on February 26, 1928 in New Orleans, Louisiana, the son of a violin player who was one of nine children in their large family. His cousin left an old upright piano in his house, which lead him to teach himself a number of popular piano styles such as ragtime, blues and boogie-woogie as a child, with Fats Waller and Albert Ammons

“Inferno”: Trippy & Surreal ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ Music Video Featuring David Hasselhoff

Guardians of the Galaxy” and music go hand in hand. James Gunn‘s series has had two incredibly well-chosen soundtracks, or mix-tapes if you will, filled with ’70s and ’80s guilty-pleasure pop cornerstones. Half the fun of watching these movies is wondering what song Gunn will choose next to move his story forward. It’s an indelibly pleasurable experience to be delighted by breathless action and, at the same time, bop your head up and down to, say, Fleetwood Mac‘s “The Chain,” or Cheap Trick‘s “Surrender.”

Following in that tradition, James Gunn and Marvel have given us a real ditty today.

Doritos Made a Bag That Plays Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Soundtrack

Um... What? Did I hear that right? As I was looking for some interesting things to post, I came across some information that Doritos has made a hybrid Doritos bag and music player that looks like a tape deck on the bag. The best part is, it plays the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 soundtrack. Of all the things I never expected to happen, this is probably the top of the list.

Doritos and Marvel have a cross promotion going, but who would have thought they would make a Doritos bag that plays music!? In some strange way, it makes sense. A strong element in the Guardians of the Galaxy films is music. There is a tape deck that plays Star-Lord's music that has both an important role in the film and has great tunes for the film. Even the title of the film is called Vol. 2, reminiscent of an album release.

The film opens in U.S. theaters on May 5, 2017.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is filled with great action, humor and performances, but it is also infused with a new mixed tape and soundtrack, a dynamic that resonated deeply with audiences in the first film as evidenced by the success of the soundtrack album. The Grammy-nominated “Guardians of the Galaxy” soundtrack reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, becoming the first soundtrack album consisting entirely of previously released songs to top the chart. The album was certified Platinum by the R.I.A.A.

Exclusive: David Hasselhoff Dishes on Singing 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' Track: 'It's More Like a Rap'
David Hasselhoff is officially in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 -- well, on the soundtrack, at least.

The former Baywatch star and '80s pop sensation provided the vocals for the only original track of the movie's Awesome Mix Vol. 2, and he opened up to Et about how the song, "Guardian's Inferno," came about.

"You know, I asked [director] James Gunn why he chose me. He said, 'When I was 8 years old, I saw a show called Knight Rider [and] since that day I've always wanted to meet you and to kind of live by the laws of the Knight Rider," Hasselhoff told Et's Cameron Mathison at the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood on Wednesday.

The Contents Of Awesome Mix Vol. 2 Have Been Revealed Ahead Of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; Chris Pratt Teases Star-Lord’s Future

From “Spirit in the Sky” to Blue Swede’s infectious “Hooked on a Feeling” – a song that has since become synonymous with Marvel’s galactic anti-heroes – the soundtrack to Guardians of the Galaxy was arguably the most crowd-pleasing element of James Gunn’s 2014 sleeper hit. And that’s really saying something, given the film featured a talking tree and a warrior that struggled to wrap his head around the concept of a metaphor.

With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 now teetering on the verge of its theatrical release, the level of interest in Star-Lord and the crew has grown astronomically in the past three years, though if there’s one ingredient that James Gunn has carried over from the first movie, it’s fist-pumping power ballads. Now, Rolling Stone has officially cracked open Awesome Mix Vol. 2 to reveal the songs set to feature throughout Guardians 2.

“‘Mercy,’ I love conceptually, because I feel like you can either think about it as if it were a girl – which it sounds like it could be about a girl – but I like to picture it as pleading for mercy for my career, type of thing,” Mendes explains in a new Front and Center interview from the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, New York.
