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.

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.

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.
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…

Loretta Lynn, the Kentucky coal miner’s daughter whose frank songs about life and love as a woman in Appalachia pulled her out of poverty and made her a pillar of country music, has died. She was 90.
In a statement provided to The Associated Press, Lynn’s family said she died Tuesday at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.
“Our precious mom, Loretta Lynn, passed away peacefully this morning, October 4th, in her sleep at home in her beloved ranch in Hurricane Mills,” the family said in a statement. They asked for privacy as they grieve and said a memorial will be announced later.
LORETTA LYNN had a rough start in life and it didn’t get any easier in her adult life either. She was a very talented and strong woman who had to fight against all odds and held her own becoming one of the most famous country music icons. Shes listened to and celebrated world wide thanks to her 1980 Biopic, “Coal Minor’s Daughter”, starring Sissy Spacek and is one of the better cinematic bios, “Coal Miner’s Daughter” deserves praise because it is such a topnotch production. Sissy Spacek gives a terrific performance in the rags-to-riches, true-life story of country music legend Loretta Lynn. Lynn Personally Chose Sissy Spacek to Play Her in ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’
Loretta Lynn’s career as an American singer-songwriter spanned six decades in country music. Lynn released multiple gold albums. She had hits such as “You Ain’t Woman Enough”, “Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin'”, “One’s on the Way”, “Fist City”, and “Coal Miner’s Daughter”.
Lynn had four children before launching her career in the early 1960s, and her songs reflected her pride in her rural Kentucky background.
As a songwriter she was a defiantly tough woman, a contrast to the stereotypical image of most female country singers. The Country Music Hall of Famer wrote about love and sex, cheating husbands, divorce and birth control and met with trouble with radio programmers for her controversial material that even rock artists avoided.
When Metallica played Nashville for the first time in a decade back in January 2019, they added a country twist to their set with a cover of Loretta Lynn’s “You’re Looking at Country.” It turns out that not only was the 87-year-old “tickled” by the band’s rendition, but she was there to witness it in person.
Her family released a statement which read:
“Our precious mom, Loretta Lynn, passed away peacefully this morning, October 4th, in her sleep at home at her beloved ranch in Hurricane Mills.” The family of Loretta Lynn.
