Rock stars are known for getting away with murder, but we’ve rounded up ten of the world’s biggest sonic heroes who’ve found a way of snatching life back from the claws of the Grim Reaper to rock another day.
Paul McCartney is releasing an exclusive iTunes edition of his latest album, Kisses On The Bottom. Titled Kisses On The Bottom – Complete Kisses, it will include the entire Kisses album, along with his 13 song Live From Capitol Studios performance, which saw the former Beatle crooning all of the songs on the album.
When it comes to making that really big money, it literally pays to sing for classic rock acts like the Rolling Stones, U2 and the Rolling Stones. But nothing generates more money that once singing for the Beatles, that’s for sure.
Paul McCartney apparently had a near-death experience in May which is just being reported on now.
It’s difficult to match the uniqueness of Paul McCartney’s 1979 holiday original, “Wonderful Christmastime,” so jolly old saint Macca isn’t even trying.
To celebrate the launch of McCartney’s “Kisses On The Bottom,” Macca streamed a live performance of the album in its entirety to the world. Titled “Live Kisses,” the performance will now be available on DVD, Blu-ray and digitally November 13th.
’90s ska-rockers No Doubt are back in the game with their brand new album “Push & Shove,” out on September 25th. Gwen and the boys recently spoke with Fresh 102.7′s Dylan about their past, present and bright future.
Now, thanks to VH1, VH1 Classic and Palladia, you’ll be able to hear both of the Springsteen/McCartney collaborations, “Twist And Shout,” as well as “I Saw Her Standing There.” And you’ll be able to hear the entire ending of “Twist And Shout,” even though people who were at the show didn’t get to hear it. As it turns out, the microphones were still on for the entire song, it was only the PA that was shut down.
Earlier this year, Paul McCartney released Kisses On The Bottom, a new album of pop standards that pre-date the rock and roll era (along with two new songs written in that style). And while he didn’t tour to promote it, he did perform the songs on the album at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles (where he recorded the album) on February 9.
Sir Paul McCartney may be Britain’s highest-paid performer, but he earned nearly nothing for his performance at the Olympic Opening Ceremony in London last Friday.
