Choose Life I WAS TOUCHED BY DAVE Grohl’s words about Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington in last month’s cover story. The wounds of Kurt’s suicide are still clearly visible, and I can’t imagine the emotions Chris’s passing in particular caused for Grohl. Clarence Harvey Avalon, NSW Security Concerns INTERESTING STORY ON THE future of concert security [RS 791]. While happy that our security is clearly a big concern, I do long for the days when you could go to a gig without having to worry about where the exits are and what you’d do if some kind of tragedy should unfold. But then such is the world we live in. I guess the most important thing is to not let that stop you going to a show. When that happens the terrorists have won. Petra…

Fashion Week Rocks Kanye may not have hosted a Yeezy show at New York Fashion Week, but musicians took over, with surprise gigs by Future, St. Vincent, Solange and more. “I wish some people from the hood would be able to attend fashion shows,” Cardi B has said. Stones Rip Europe The Stones returned to the road after a yearlong hiatus, delivering a surprising set list in Hamburg, Germany, including “Under My Thumb”, “Play With Fire” and, for the first time in over 40 years, 1973’s stoner jam “Dancing With Mr. D”. “Back on the job!” said Keith Richards.

u2’s new fire

U2 Songs of Experience DECEMBER 1ST The past three years have tested U2 in different ways, from the fierce backlash they received for gifting 2014’s Songs of Innocence to every iTunes user to Bono’s devastating bicycle accident, which left him with several fractured bones and a shattered left arm. But those setbacks didn’t compare to another crisis Bono faced last year. “He had a brush with mortality,” says the Edge, choosing his words carefully (the band won’t go into detail on the matter). “He definitely had a serious moment, which caused him to reflect on a lot of things.” The episode caused the band to rethink Songs of Experience, a companion to Songs of Innocence that they had already been working on for more than two years. The resulting LP features less of…

Bob Dylan Trouble No More: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 13, 1979-1981 NOVEMBER 3RD Dylan’s Christian period (1979-81) remains one of his most controversial and debated chapters. What’s often lost in those arguments is that it produced some of his greatest concerts. Trouble No More, an eight-CD set, proves that point, with live highlights from that time, when Dylan’s band included legendary session players like organist Spooner Oldham and drummer Jim Keltner. The set is full of revelations: There are six vastly different versions of “Slow Train”, plus 14 unreleased songs, such as “Making a Liar Out of Me”, which has escaped bootleggers for more than 30 years. A one-hour film features footage from 1980 and a deeply moving version of “Pressing On”. Says Dylan scholar Clinton Heylin, “Like the mid-1960s, he was…

son little

1 A stew of styles It’s a testament to Son Little’s eclectic, genre-splicing fusion of Philadelphia soul, hard rock and East Coast 1960s folk that Rolling Stone finds him recovering from playing Brooklyn’s Afro-punk festival whilst also preparing to perform at a bluegrass event in Massachusetts – all in support of his sophisticated, mature second album, New Magic. “It’s not a stretch for me to have a harder sound, but I also grew up listening to Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie,” says the singer. 2 Take it as gospel The Californian-born artist, real name Aaron Livingston, grew up the son of a preacher. “I regularly heard a certain type of harmony being sung around me, and I came to understand music as something that lots of people do together. A congregation…
