Two songs from Johnny Depp’s new album are inspired by Amber Heard trial

After his defamation trial against his ex-wife Heard, the actor toured with British musician Beck, with whom he co-wrote two songs for the upcoming album titled 18.

In one of the songs, Depp can be heard singing, “I think you’ve said enough for one motherf***ing night.”

This is A Song for Miss Hedy Lamarr, the album’s lead single, was allegedly written by Depp. ‘You’re sitting there like a dog with a seven-year itch … If I had a dime, it wouldn’t reach your hand,’ he sings on another track, called Sad Motherf**kin’ Parade.

Beck and Depp’s collaboration

On July 15, the album was made available. Only two of the songs on the album are originals by Depp; the rest are covers of songs by Lou Reed, The Velvet Underground, and The Beach Boys.

Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac Dead At 79

Christine McVie, who played with Fleetwood Mac and wrote some of their most famous songs, has died aged 79, her family has said.

The British singer-songwriter was behind hits including Little Lies, Everywhere, Don’t Stop, Say You Love Me and Songbird.

She died peacefully at a hospital in the company of her family, a statement said.

McVie left Fleetwood Mac after 28 years in 1998 but returned in 2014.

The family’s statement said “we would like everyone to keep Christine in their hearts and remember the life of an incredible human being, and revered musician who was loved universally”.

Born Christine Perfect, McVie married Fleetwood Mac bassist John McVie, and joined the group at the start of the 1970s.

A statement by the band said of McVie: “We were so lucky to have a life with her.

“Individually and together, we cherished Christine deeply and are thankful for the amazing memories we have. She will be so very missed.”

In a post on Instagram, Stevie Nicks wrote: “A few hours ago I was told that my best friend in the whole world since the first day of 1975, had passed away.

“I didn’t even know she was ill… until late Saturday night. I wanted to be in London, I wanted to get to London – but we were told to wait.

“So, since Saturday, one song has been swirling around my head, over and over and over. I thought I might possibly get to sing it to her, and so, I’m singing it to her now.

“I always knew I would need these words one day… It’s all I can do now.”

On This Date in History

On this date in history November 13th 2015 the blues-rock band Eagles of Death Metal are in the midst of performing their song “Kiss the Devil” at a sold-out show at Le Bataclan in Paris, France, when the venue is attacked by terrorists armed with automatic rifles, grenades and explosive suicide vests – one of many attacks throughout the city.

The band escapes unharmed through a backstage door, but 89 audience members are killed, including the band’s merchandise manager, Nick Alexander. In the wake of the tragedy, band members Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme start a campaign asking fellow musicians to cover a track from their Zipper Down album, “I Love You All The Time,” with 100% of the publishing proceeds going to the Sweet Stuff Foundation to aid victims of the attacks.

They explain: “Whether you’re Soul or R&B; Hip Hop or Hippy; Garage, Goth, Country, Punk or Pop; Death Metal or DJ; It matters not. Whether your version is faithful to ours, instrumental, uses only lyrics or fragments thereof or is completely reimagined in every way, it matters not. Your individual musical differences become our collective strength.”

Acts like The Dean Ween Group and My Morning Jacket are among the first to join the challenge. Duran Duran helps out by donating royalties from the Eagles of Death Metal cover of “Save a Prayer” to charity.

As the spookiest night of the year descends on us, and given that we’re way too old to be out trick or treating, Heres a Halloween themed rock song for you to indulge instead.

Whilst Halloween is traditionally a big deal in the USA, we’ve seen it building up in Australia over the last few years with fancy dress parties, kids out collecting candy door to door, and lots of houses covered in cobwebs. All just a bit of fun believed to be an extension of the pagan tradition of celebrating the dead.

Werewolves Of London – Warren Zevon

Probably Warren Zevon’s best-known song, co-written with guitarist Waddy Wachtel and recorded with Fleetwood Mac’s John McVie and Mick Fleetwood.

According to legend, a Werewolf is a man who turns into a wolf when there is a full moon. The only way to kill one is to shoot it through the heart with a silver bullet.

This was featured in the 1986 movie The Color Of Money in a scene where Tom Cruise and his perfect hair run the table at a pool hall. Robbie Robertson from The Band put together the soundtrack, which also includes the Eric Clapton song “It’s In The Way That You Use It,” written specifically for the film.

The lyrics tell the story of “a hairy-handed gent who ran amok in Kent.” He’s well-dressed (“I’d like to meet his tailor”), well-groomed (“His hair was perfect”), and “preying on little old ladies.”

Rock ’n’ Roll Legend Jerry Lee Lewis Has Died

Rock ‘n Roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis who’s most known for hits like “Great Balls of Fire” and “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” has died at 87.

Jerry Lee Lewis died peacefully in his home in Desoto County, Mississippi. When reporters reached the family via phone, Farnum informed them that cause of the death was “natural causes.” His wife Judith was at his side. During his last hours Jerry told his wife he Isnt afraid to die and he will embrace the afterlife.

He was pioneer of rock and roll and rockabilly. He began recording in 1956 at Sun Records in Memphis, Tennessee. “Crazy Arms” sold 300,000 copies in the South, but it was Lewis’ 1957 smash “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” that catapulted him to international stardom. He then went on to have massive successes including “Great Balls of Fire,” “Breathless,” and “High School Confidential.”

His rock and roll career took a hit after he married Myra Gale Brown, his 13-year-old cousin once removed.

Following the controversy, his fame swiftly dwindled, and with a few exceptions, such as a version of Ray Charles’ “What’d I Say,” he had little chart success in the early 1960s. His live performances were becoming increasingly chaotic and energetic. Many writers and fans view his 1964 live CD Live at the Star Club, Hamburg as one of the craziest and finest live rock recordings ever.

“To Make Love Sweeter for You,” “There Must Be More to Love Than This,” “Would You Take Another Chance on Me,” and “Me and Bobby McGee” were also known as number hit singles.

Lewis released 40 studio albums during his career. The most recent being 2014’s Rock & Roll Time. “Mean Old Man,” his previous album, debuted in the US Top 30 in 2010 and featured duets with performers such as Mick Jagger, Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson, and Eric Clapton.

Creepy Green Light” is a song by Type O Negative, included on the fifth album World Coming Down, released in September 13th 1999. This song was formerly titled “Spooky Green Light” before it was renamed while the album was in production.

It is track #8 in the album World Coming Down.

Creepy Green Light has a BPM/tempo of 130, is in the key C Major and has a duration of 06:56. Below is a table of the meta data for Creepy Green Light.

This song is split into three cantos—the first and third cantos are titled “Creepy Green Light”, and the one in the middle is titled “Frightening Black Night”. The middle is instrumental featuring an organ followed by doom metal riff over it, so all the lyrics are sung during the first and third cantos.

Clutch, “Drink to the Dead” (Pure Rock Fury, 2001)

Here’s a hot take for you: Clutch are an underrated band. It’s hot because Clutch is an extremely popular band; their career spans fourteen full-length releases and a plethora of EPs, rarities, collections, and so on. They also jam-pack every single show they played in the Before Times and are widely celebrated online. And yet, Clutch has garnered for itself a name of a fun, raucous band, with the adjective “dad rock” being thrown around (a fact that vocalist Neil Fallon has recently, and hilariously, owned). To be sure, they are those facts and then some: Clutch’s music is some of the grooviest and most irreverent stuff out there and has been for literally more than two decades at this point. But alongside, Clutch are also known for having great lyrics, ranging from everything between religion, economics, politics, ecology, mythological creatures, literary references, legends, Americana and much more.

At the end of the day, Halloween is a day when we frolic to honor the dearly departed. No band gets at the holiday’s pagan roots like Clutch, whose 2001 album-closer “Drink to the Dead” understands the shadowy wooden heart of this feast of fools. The track’s tipsy swaying and exciting-yet-melancholy lyrics sum up the reason for the season, that much-needed revelry people need as the fall sends a deathly chill down their spines. If you’re going to make it through the demise of all things, why not do it dressed up as asses, drunk to the nines?

The UK’s Knim release their masterful debut of enthralling prog rock/metal – When A Star Falls

In the spring of this year Knim stepped from the shadows of their West Yorkshire home and presented their debut single to the world. A Prisoner On The Seas was an epic adventure – both musically and lyrically – and touched with magic. It opened a portal into another world with its entwining of progressive rock and grandiose metal and since its release all those who were captivated by its fresh, exciting sounds have been waiting eagerly for the continuation of the tale. Now the wait is nearly over, because on November 25th Knim will unveil their first full release – When A Star Falls.

Featuring a remastered version of ‘A Prisoner On The Seas’ and four new exquisitely crafted pieces of Knim’s unique sonic sorcery, When A Star Falls is a labyrinth to explore that harbours an array of treasures, waiting to be discovered. Opening with the many layers of ‘Elysium’, Knim then lead the listener on down the mist-shrouded ‘Pathway’ to the gargantuan storm of emotions that is ‘The Incongruity Of I’. The album explores themes of loss and isolation, yearning and betrayal, vivid memories of happiness beside which everyday existence fades to grey. Yet as the beautiful melancholy of the title track unfolds and slips into the odyssey of ‘A Prisoner On The Seas’ you can’t help but be uplifted by the sounds and visions that surround you. There is an intensity of emotion instilled within these songs that fires the imagination and surrounds you in rich and vivid hues of brilliant colour. There is more to appreciate within the world of When A Star Falls each time you visit its sprawling landscapes.

Accompanied by the artwork of Avenged Creations which seems to have been drawn directly from the heart of this special album and blessed with a rich, deep, organic sound quality thanks to the remarkable work of producer Ari Rannus, When A Star Falls will be waiting for you on November 25th. Join Knim on their voyage and you’ll never look back…

Concrete Blonde, ‘Bloodletting (The Vampire Song)’

With Johnette Napolitano on vocals and bass and former Sparks bassist James Mankey on guitar, plus a succession of drummers, Concrete Blonde cooked up a sweetly sulfurous blend of goth, punk, and alternative rock, shot through with Napolitano’s knack for indelible hooks.

Concrete Blonde’s 1990 track “Bloodletting (The Vampire Song)” revels in its vamp glamour, slinking along with a sexy groove and slashing horror-movie guitars as frontwoman Johnette Napolitano sings entirely unambiguous lyrics about New Orleans blood suckers straight out of an Anne Rice novel.
