• Pink Floyd Nick Mason U2 Songs of Innocence Devalue Music

    Pink Floyd's Nick Mason Thinks U2's Album Release 'Devalues' Music

    The surprise release of U2's new album Songs of Innocence has drawn criticism from pretty much all sides since it dropped in September, but the decision to put it out for free seems to be the facet of the strange campaign has drawn the most criticism from fellow musicians. After the Black Keys' drummer Patrick Carney lambasted Bono and co. for "devalu[ing] their music completely," more artists have joined the fray, not the least of which is Pink Floyd's Nick Mason, who echoed those comments in an interview with Rolling Stone."Music has been horribly devalued by being given away," Mason explains. "It's funny [U2] didn't sense some of that.

A year after Push the Sky Away, this set finds the fiery dark pop performer looking back over the full course of his career. Inspired runs through gloomy old hits like "Red Right Hand" (which was incidentally covered last week by one-time collaborator PJ Harvey) and 2013's "Mermaids" share the same lofty emotional space and provide for one of the better performances that the show has offered up in a season marked by stellar acts.

  • Prince SNL ThirdEyeGirl Clouds Mars SNL Video

    Prince and 3rdEyeGirl Ascend to 'Marz,' 'Clouds' During Extended 'SNL' Performance

    Considering how quickly most Prince live footage is wiped from the Internet by his crack team of lawyers, the good folks at 30 Rockefeller did us all a pretty solid favor by enlisting the Purple One for the most recent episode of the 40th season of Saturday Night Live. Though he hadn't appeared on the famously mercurial stage since 2006, he and his most recent band, 3rdEyeGirl seemed pretty at home as they stopped the whole Chris Rock-hosted show for an eight-minute-plus jam. The band offered soaring takes on Art Official Age's "Clouds" as well as "Marz" and a new track called "Another Love."Throughout the set Mr. Paisley Park was sure to keep his third eye covered with an omnipresent pair of modified sunglasses, and on the whole it was just a reminder that when Prince makes it to TV you need to pay attention.

You can catch an Instagram shot of Grohl's makeup below as well as videos of the set both above and below, including the live debut of "Congregation." A photo posted by Bonnie Hannah (@bjhinbna) on Oct 10, 2014 at 9:59pm PDT

    Queens of the Stone Age Reunited With Nick Oliveri at Halloween Show

    Queens of the Stone Age's special Halloween show went down last night in Los Angeles, and in addition to an opening set from the Kills, a costume contest, and a haunted house, the set featured the return of former bassist Nick Oliveri.

    Anderson Cooper Pokes Fun at Billy Corgan's 'PAWS Chicago' Magazine Cover

    Between his eight-hour drone pieces, tea criticism videos, and recording with Motley Crüe's Tommy Lee, it's become clear that Billy Corgan does pretty much whatever he wants. That sort of attitude will occasionally rub folks the wrong way, and the latest of those to take objection to the Smashing Pumpkins frontman's attitude is none other than CNN's Anderson Cooper.

  • Run the Jewels Early Letterman Performance Video

    Run the Jewels Made 'Early' Spooky For a Halloween 'Letterman' Performance

    Capping off a surreal release week for their outstanding sophomore release Run the Jewels 2, Killer Mike and El-P made their network television debut on The Late Show With David Letterman on Friday night. Though Mike will be familiar to television audiences for his recent turns as a cable news talking head, the Letterman appearance functioned as something of a coming out party for the firebrand rap duo as they brought Halloween-themed flair to their stage show, courtesy a trio of spookily made-up backing vocalists. Beyoncé collaborator Boots also showed to reprise his guest turn on the track, making for a pretty special late-night TV performance. You can watch the whole thing above.

    Temple of the Dog Reunites for Stripped-Down 'Hunger Strike' at Bridge School Benefit

    Over the course of the two-plus decades since they first collaborated as Temple of the Dog, Pearl Jam and Chris Cornell have on rare occasions found the time to get back together and revisit some of the material from that classic collaboration. This year's iteration of Neil Young's annual Bridge School Benefit featured appearances from both Soundgarden and Pearl Jam so the time seemed right for this to happen again. Lo and behold, during the latter band's set, Chris Cornell strolled onstage for a stripped down rendition of the Temple of the Dog classic "Hunger Strike." Consequence of Sound points out that it was only their fourth performance together since 1991 and their first since Pearl Jam's 20th anniversary in 2012. You can catch fan-shot footage of the moment above.

  • Iggy Azalea Snl Black Widow Fancy Rita Ora Mø

    Watch Iggy Azalea's 'Fancy' 'Saturday Night Live' Performance

    Less than a month before the release of the deluxe reissue of her 2014 album The New Classic, Iggy Azalea swung through 30 Rockefeller Center to guest on this week's episode of Saturday Night Live. Rather than a straight run through of her inescapable hit "Fancy" Azalea opted to perform it as a medley with "Black Widow" for which her collaborator Rita Ora was on hand. Fog machines and chain link fences made the performance more ornate than your typical SNL appearance, but her second trip to the stage was even better, performing her recent single "Beg For It" with Danish pop star MØ in tow. You can catch the first performance above, and the second below, alongside a skit in which Azalea and host Jim Carrey take part in an office costume party. Reclassified, Azalea's reissue, will come to stores on November 24.
