"I don't need my music to be devalued by the worst quality in the history of broadcasting or any other form of distribution. I don't feel right allowing this to be sold to my fans. It's bad for my music. For me, It's about making and distributing music people can really hear and feel. I stand for that. When the quality is back, I'll give it another look. Never say never."

"It was from the fans all these years talking about the Rossington Collins Band days, and would I ever do anything like that with Dale," Rossington tells Billboard. Gary launched the Rossington Collins Band with fellow Skynyrd guitarist Allen Collins and other Skynyrd members in 1979, two years after the fatal plane crash that halted the band for a decade. The group produced two albums.
"After awhile of those meet-and-greets of people asking, we had a little time off a few years back, so we went in and did it and it was just spontaneous, quick," Rossington explains. "It only took a couple weeks of recording and a few overdubs, and we were done. It was such a fun thing to do, and our fans were asking us and some of the guys in the band even mentioned, 'Why don't you guys do something?' So we went in and did it, and that was it."

McCartney conducted a Q&A fans on his official website (via Radio.com) and took on the topic of his biggest fears. He told fans, When I was a kid it was just getting beaten up by a local gang. You know, that was a purely physical fear. Where I lived it was a hard estate and there were guys who if you saw them you would just go to the other side of the street. Because you knew they would just say, 'Hey you, who you lookin' at?' And there was no right answer! 'You!' And they're coming at you! 'Not you!' And they're coming at you!"
He then revealed the impact of fear on his music career. "Performing, it was always the idea that the audience didn't like you and you had to prove yourself. I think that's why a lot of people get stage fright and get nervous. You think, 'Oh my god, I'm gonna be terrible, they hate me, and it's all terrible.' And so I think that was one of the earliest fears.
"I remember nearly giving it all up when we were doing a concert in Wembley - which was a Poll-Winners concert - in the really early days of The Beatles. And I remember feeling physically sick with a knot in my stomach thinking, 'I should give this up, this is just too painful, what am I doing?' I got over it. And as you can see I didn't give it up! So that's two different kinds of fears." Read the Radio.com reporthere.
"When I first wrote 'Me, Myself and I' it was with Lauren Christy, and it was on piano, and I knew it was something so special. Then I played it for G-Eazy in the studio and he heard it and he said, 'We have to work on this!' And it ended up becoming this massive record."
She says that not all collaborations work out so well, though: "Collaborations are a funny thing in the music business, because you never know what you're going to get. I've been in the room with a lot of other artists who have had a lot of hits, and sometimes it just doesn't work out. But sometimes there's a G-Eazy, or a Martin Garrix, with 'In the Name of Love,' and there's a magic that happens. It's like speed dating somebody. But when you get that perfect record, it's the best feeling in the world." Read morehere.
The seven-minute long video shows a baby-faced Vedder standing outside Wrigley, fake crying because he's so excited to show the cameraman around. He never actually goes inside the stadium, but being a lifelong Cubs fan he knows all the ins and outs.
Vedder shows where players park before the game and greet fans, where bands set up to perform before each game and create a block party of sorts. He even comes across a mount of sod piled up outside one of the gates. He excitedly smells the grass. Discussing how integral Wrigley Field is to the neighborhood, Vedder says, "The fact is if you took this park out of here, it's part of the city. I don't know." Watch ithere.
Forchhammer rides around in an antique car driven by no one. The haunting image is meant to evoke the presence his dad has even while he remains absent. A single tear builds momentum and threatens to drown Forchhammer in grief, even while he's surrounded by gorgeous women and success.

The video ends on a bleak note with a blindfolded Forchhammer making his way toward a cliff with no one to stop him because the person who needs to is no longer around. Read morehere.

The music star bears a resemblance to the lead character, lends her voice to that track and appears in the visual. The video begins with an opening shot of Moana sailing her boat across the waters before cutting to Cara walking along a warm rocky beach (presumably in Hawaii where the film is set).
She draws lines in the sand, which turn out to be something far more significant once the camera pulls back and an overhead helicopter shot reveals just what she's been doing.
"See the light where the sky meets the sea/ It calls me/ And no one knows how far it goes/ If the wind at my sail on the sea stays behind me/ One day I'll know/ If I go there's just no telling how far I'll go," Cara sings on the anthemic chorus. Check out the new videohere.
The video finds the Zays and their friends throwing a major house party after moving into a quiet neighborhood. When two adults who live next door stop by to introduce themselves during the day, the Zays tell them not to call the cops if they have a noise complaint, but to call them.
The kids start out by partying on the lawn, each one showing off their interpretation of the song's dance moves, before taking things inside to a blacklight party that gets going. Things inevitably get out of hand, and once their daughter ends up at the party doing her best "JuJu On That Beat," the neighbors break their promise and call the cops.
But things don't exactly go as they planned. Once the cops show up, they immediately join the fun and start busting a move. Read more and watch the videohere.
