Neil Young and Crazy Horse

Chris Martin of Coldplay joined Beck for a spirited sitar-spiced rendition of "Loser" at the Gala in the Garden event in LA over the weekend, which honored filmmaker Jordan Peele and artist Judy Chicago.  Mountaintop, a documentary which chronicled the making of Neil Young's first album with Crazy Horse in seven years is out next week, and in an online trailer for the film, the rock and grunge legend can be seen yelling and cursing about sound levels not being loud enough in his monitor. And George "Pops" Chambers of the Chambers Brothers, known for their psych-soul 1960's hit "Time Has Come Today" has passed away at age 88.

Neil Young and his longtime backing band Crazy Horse are getting together for their first album together in seven years. The memorial service for slain LA rapper and community philanthropist Nipsey Hussle is being live streamed today. At a town hall for songwriters in Nashville, the head of a songwriter's association urged consumers to ditch Spotify in favor of Apple Music because of Spotify's appeal of a Copyright Board decision that increases royalties to songwriters and publishers. A GoFundMe has been launched for Pacific Northwest super producer Tucker Martine and his wife Laura Viers, whose insurance company won't reimburse for the $70,000 worth of gear stolen recently from their new studio.
