The Route 103
The Route Roundup for the week of Monday, November 24 to December 19, 2014.
Here’s what’s going on around town:
Two weeks after gifting us with his first-ever selfie, Prince has taken it back, along with deleting his social media accounts and removing his music from YouTube.
Joni Mitchell is no Swiftian—that much was confirmed when a new interview with the legendary singer-songwriter described a failed attempt to make a movie about her, Carole King and Carly Simon.
Almost 50 years later, Aretha Franklin is still demanding R-E-S-P-E-C-T.
In an era where some of music’s biggest artists drop albums out of nowhere, the release of the new AC/DC record has seemed like a marathon to get to this point.
In the old Batman, there were these epic fight scenes, where each punch was punctuated with an explosion graphic and the words“bam!” or “pow!” printed in the explosion.
Dylan played a short set Sunday (Nov. 23) in Philadelphia at Philadelphia’s Academy of Music, Rolling Stone reports. And he had only one audience member.
Bryan Adams, Willie Nelson and Cyndi Lauper are among the mix of artists coming to the GRAMMY Foundation’s upcoming Legacy Concert.
While fans can indulge in his box collection Real World 25, a three-CD set celebrating a quarter century of his Real World record label that was released earlier this fall, there has been no new music to be heard from Peter Gabriel in quite some time.
That is, until this past week.
On Minimation, we comb through the archives of legendary New York radio station WNEW-FM and animate interviews with legendary rock artists. In this 1988 interview, Robert Plant talks about kicking drugs and cigarettes. Of course, there were other parts of the “sex, drugs and rock and roll” equation that he didn’t want to quit.
