AC/DC With Axl Rose Washington D.C. Show Video Goes Online

(hennemusic) AC/DC featuring Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose performed at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC on September 17 and video from the show has surfaced online.

The concert marked the ninth of ten rescheduled US tour dates the band are playing this fall with Rose as they wind down a world tour in support of 2014's "Rock Or Bust."

AC/DC's now standard 24-song opened with the title track to their latest album while delivering classic tunes from both the Bon Scott- and Brian Johnson-eras.

Johnson was sidelined from the tour in March on the advice of doctors due to hearing loss issues, which prompted the Guns N' Roses leader to step in to assist the Australian rockers for a 14-date spring run across Europe before returning for the current fall US shows.

"With Axl," says lone founding member Angus Young, "we've been able to mix up quite a few songs with the older ones, and the fun part is when we get there on the stage, seeing it come to life in front of the audience."

"He's more in the Bon style - the rock & roll character," adds the guitarist. "And he's got his own folksy humor. He's pretty quick with a quip. Axl has different vocal ranges. You can hear him one way in a Bon song. Then he can flip and do Brian, the higher register." Check out the videos from the D.C. show and band's official recap clip here.

James Corden Becomes David Bowie, Slash in Apple Music Ad

In a commercial for Apple Music which premiered on Sunday (Sept. 18), Corden is depicted in a meeting with Apple executives Jimmy Iovine, Eddy Cue and Bozoma Saint John to pitch new ways to promote the music streaming service.

One of Corden's ideas involves dressing up as music legends like David Bowie, Slash, the Spice Girls and Pharrell Williams. "Me as every iconic music star in history. Bang! I'm Bowie," he says as an image of him in Bowie Aladdin Sane face paint is shown as the late artist's music is played. "I'm Slash. Gah! I'm the Spice Girls. Psh! I'm Pharrell."

Corden is awoken from his commercial dream when Pharrell enters and says: "Stop." The executives aren't into his idea either so he shares a few other options. Watch Corden's ideas come to life here.

Luke Bryan Releases 'Move' Video

(Radio.com) Flashdance is having a popular resurgence in music videos these days. Not only did Kanye West borrow from the film's iconic dance scene for his latest video "Fade," but now Luke Bryan has included something quite like it for his new music video "Move."

In "Move," Bryan and his band rehearse on one side of an industrial building while a young woman dances in front of a mirror on the other side. The camera keeps tracking back and forth across the two connected but separate spaces, as the woman's moves reflect Bryan's upbeat and rollicking song and he in turn mirrors her "moves" to an extent. But it turns out their performances are connected. By the video's end, Bryan and his band are playing for a packed audience in that same space and the young dancer is up on stage adding to the experience.

"'Move' is all the fun you could want to have in a song, in my opinion," Bryan said about the song. "It's what I envision -- big ol' country dance clubs across the country playing that and it filling up and everybody having a great time" (via The Boot). Read more here.

Nikki Sixx Heartbroken Over Current Heroin Epidemic

(Classic Rock) Nikki Sixx says a spate of heroin-related deaths in the US "just breaks my heart." The former Motley Crue and current Sixx AM bassist is himself a recovering addict, having struggled with substance abuse earlier in his career. He was once declared clinically dead after a heroin overdose in 1987.

And he says street drugs cut with other substances have changed the game when it comes to getting high.

Sixx's comments come on the back of recent statistics which show heroin is more often than not laced with a powerful synthetic called fentanyl – which in itself is up to 50 times more powerful than heroin.

On his Sixx Sense radio show, Sixx, 57, says: "What dealers are doing is they're taking heroin and they're cutting it with fentanyl to give it a little extra kick.

"It just breaks my heart to think that something so deadly... I mean, this is fifty times stronger than heroin, and people don't know what they're getting, and they're dying.

"As a recovering heroin addict, I'm telling you, you don't know what you're doing. When you buy a balloon of Persian heroin, you don't know what's in it, and that's what's happening." Read more here.

Fifth Harmony Release 'That's My Girl' Video

(Radio.com) Fifth Harmony come out on top after major destruction in a post-apocalyptic world in their new music video for "That's My Girl." Directed by Hannah Lux Davis, the nearly four-minute clip views as a mini film as the girls rise from the rubble and empower the community.

At the start of "That's My Girl," war and destruction is found everywhere as planes hover above a city that has been destroyed. As dust and smoke engulf the area, Fifth Harmony rise in leather for a quick dance number before they go on to rescue the injured.

Later, the young women take their music to the masses dressed in white and as they sing the female empowerment anthem they help pull out victims from the rubble in between a choreographed dance routine. Watch it all unfold here.

Danny Brown's 'Really Doe' Features Kendrick Lamar, Earl Sweatshirt

(Radio.com) Danny Brown has tapped some big names to feature on his latest single "Really Doe." Kendrick Lamar, Earl Sweatshirt and Ab-Soul all lend rhymes to the laidback track with teeth, which appears on Brown's forthcoming album Atrocity Exhibition.

With the higher register of a xylophone juxtaposing the lower register of the chill beat Brown raps against, he leads off the track coming in fast and fierce before Lamar's vocals lend everything an extra-relaxed vibe oh the chorus.

It's been three years since Brown has released a new album, with his last being 2013's Old. Speaking with Rolling Stone about writing his newest, he said he didn't want to rush on the album. "At the end of the day, its just something that I really took my time with," he said. "I know this day and age, a lot of artists can't really take time off to make music'they'll get replaced. With me, [I'm] somebody that's able to sit down and be able to take my time, 'cause aint nobody gonna be out here sounding like me, ain't nobody gonna be out here doing what I do." Check out the new track here.

Singled Out: piKzil's Brand New Soul

piKzil released their debut album "Songs From My 3rd Life" and to celebrate Liza Oxnard tells us about the song "Brand New Soul". Here is the story:

My mom is a feminist. Growing up, she always made sure we saw the gender inequities around us. And she was a commanding presence, with her 6 ft frame and a clear strong voice, she would quote "a woman's place is in the house and the senate", the declaration from the women's movement of the 1970's. She made sure that each of her daughters understood that we were in no way to compromise our viewpoints, our life's goals, or our sense of self, for a patriarchy that was doing everything it could to send the opposite message. But I am a product of my culture along with my upbringing. So, no matter how hard I try to stay conscious of the ways in which my culture limits me and the ways in which I self limit, I still struggle each day to continue to believe in my own viewpoints, my goals, and myself. Add becoming a mother in a culture that doesn't value mothering, aging in the business of entertainment and you end up with a potentially toxic soup of self-doubt and self-censorship.

I spent decades wavering between feeling powerful and incapable depending on what I was doing at the time because society sends a clear message to girls and women. And the message is this - You must be young, pretty, smart, and accomplished, and above all, not complain if you want to play in the patriarchal playground. Read more right here!
