Tina Turner

Posted on 25 May 2023 by Brian Walsh

Tina Turner, one of the greatest rock’n ’roll singers of all time, has died in Switzerland at the age of 83.“With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model.”

The singer rose to prominence performing with her husband Ike Turner in the 1960s before overcoming the abusive marriage to go on to become a chart-topping solo artist.

Turner earned a legion of fans for her riveting live performances, and was best known for songs such as “Private Dancer”, “The Best”, “What’s Love Got to Do With It” and “Proud Mary”.

Born Anna Mae Bullock on 26 November, 1939, in Nutbush, Tennessee, Turner would go on to sell more than 180 million albums and won 12 Grammy Awards.

Turner was diagnosed with intestinal cancer in 2016 and received a kidney transplant in 2017.

Sheldon Reynolds. Earth, Wind & Fire

Posted on 25 May 2023 by Brian Walsh

Earth, Wind and Fire guitarist and co-vocalist, Sheldon Reynolds, has died aged 63.

The revered musician’s bandmate, Philip Bailey, confirmed the sad news on Wednesday (24.05.23).

The cause of death is not known at this time.

Philip, the legendary R’n’B group’s lead singer, recalled how former frontman Maurice White – who died in 2016 aged 74 – was wowed by Sheldon’s vocals, as he hailed him an “excellent addition” to the group. In a touching tribute, he wrote on Facebook: “This news of Sheldon Reynolds transition is very sad for all of us who knew and worked with him. Sheldon vocally had Reese down. That’s what Maurice said when he hired Sheldon to share vocals and play guitar. Sheldon was an excellent addition to the band, a great writer and producer, and a genuinely kind and loving person. He will be missed. Our condolences to his family.

Rest in Peace.

Gordon Lightfoot

Posted on 21 May 2023 by Brian Walsh

Late Canadian folk icon Gordon Lightfoot’s final album is due to be released on July 14.

At Royal Albert Hall is a double album that was recorded live in concert at the legendary London venue on May 24, 2016. It is Lightfoot’s fourth live album. Lightfoot passed away on May 1 at age 84.

At Royal Albert Hall is described in a press statement as “an unembellished live mix of that night’s performance, without edits, overdubs, remixing, or re-sequencing. It captures every song performed in the order they were played, down to the encore by Gordon and his band – Rick Haynes on bass, Barry Keane on drums, Mike Heffernan on keys, and Carter Lancaster on guitar.”

The 26-track album features six of Lightfoot’s 11 Billboard Hot 100 hits, including all four of his top 10 hits: “If You Could Read My Mind,” “Sundown,” “Carefree Highway” and “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.”

Ted Nugent

Posted on 21 May 2023 by Brian Walsh

Ted Nugent has replaced his canceled Alabama concert with a show in Mississippi and declared, “You Can’t Cancel Me.”

Earlier this month, Nugent’s concert in Birmingham, Alabama, was canceled due to social media backlash surrounding his controversial political views.

The legendary rocker was scheduled to perform on July 18 at Avondale Brewing Co. However, his appearance was canceled on May 4, one day before tickets were due to go on sale via Ticketmaster.

Avondale Brewing’s Facebook page received nearly 1,000 comments criticizing the musician for his far-right beliefs and labeling him homophobic, transphobic and misogynistic.”The concerts are selling out left and right – except where some freaks think that men should go into women’s bathrooms and locker rooms, and who think that comfortably numb is a desirable condition for your children,” Nugent said during an episode of his “Nightly Nuge” show.

He continued, “They have protested. I think there were six snakes — they were serpents — that protested one of my concerts down in Birmingham, Alabama, of all places. We were selling tickets left and right. They cancelled the concert, and the Nugent haters — which is the Michael Moore, Hunter Biden fan club — they actually cancelled the concert in Birmingham, but an hour later I booked another gig for more money across the border in Mississippi. So when you mess with Uncle Ted, you lose.”

He also called the cancellation of his show at the Avondale Brewery as a move by “the lunatic fringe,” adding, “But again, you see that smile on my face? You can’t cancel me.”

Smokey Robinson

Posted on 18 May 2023 by Brian Walsh

Smokey Robinson is set to perform at the Fox Theatre on August 5, returning to one the most significant venues in his hometown Detroit.

The upcoming “Robinson’s Show” marks the Motown legend’s first hometown concert since he played the Detroit River Days festival in 2019.

The Fox Theatre played a big role in Robinson’s musical history, as the singer and his group, The Miracles, played several shows at the venue in the ’60s. Then, Robinson headlined the Fox’s grand reopening night in 1988 after the Ilitch family restored the 1928 venue at a cost of about $12 million.

Robinson, who was born in Detroit, encouraged Berry Gordy to found Motown Records, which made him a star. “Shop Around,” which was written by Robinson and performed by his group, became Motown’s first million-selling hit.
