Queen’s Greatest Hits

Queen’s cornerstone “Greatest Hits” album is, once again, in the Top 10 of Billboard’s 200.

Released in 1981, the album has been on the charts for 412 weeks, finally landing at No. 8, up from its previous spot at No. 36. It previously peaked at No. 11 in 1992, the year following front man Freddie Mercury’s untimely death.

The now nine-time platinum album is also No. 1 on Billboard’s Vinyl Albums Chart with the second-largest sales week of 2020 for any vinyl release.

With monster hits from the iconic rock band like “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Will Rock You,” “We Are The Champions,” “Fat Bottomed Girls,” “Another One Bites the Dust” and so many more, it’s no wonder the album has stood the test of time.

Queen recently teamed up with both Target and Walmart to release brand new vinyl exclusives. Both are two-disc LPs, 180 gram.

Those opting for the Target exclusive will be treated to ruby blend marble vinyl while those who purchase from Walmart will receive red and white vinyl. The biggest fans of Queen might even be found purchasing both.

The band also recently released a live album with American Idol alum Adam Lambert at the helm. The album is titled “Queen + Adam Lambert Live Around The World,” and it landed at No. 1 on the UK’s official albums chart.

It was the first time a Queen album topped a chart since 1995’s “Made in Heaven.”

Queen is no stranger to the top ten, as this is their ninth album to land there. It will join the soundtrack for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Greatest Hits I, II & III: The Platinum Collection,” “Classic Queen,” “The Game,” “Jazz.” “News of the World,” “A Day at the Races” and “A Night at the Opera.”

Queen’s “Greatest Hits” is still the best-selling album of all-time in the UK.

Inhaler x Vevo DSCVR

Inhaler released two brand new videos through Vevo DSCVR on Wednesday for their songs titled “It Won’t Always Be Like This” and “When It Breaks.”

Vevo DSCVR focuses on developing up-and-coming artists through live performances, and they’ve carefully curated a catalog of musicians and bands in their spotlight.

Some of the artists include Billie Eilish, AB6IX and Alfie Templeman, and Vevo DSCVR has helped them reach wider audiences that may not have been exposed to their work yet.

The four members of Inhaler, Elijah Hewson, Robert Keating, Ryan McMahon and Josh Jenkinson, met in high school, bonding over bands like The Stone Roses, Joy Division, The Strokes, Depeche Mode, Interpol, Kings Of Leon and The Cure.

“It Won’t Always Be Like This” was their debut single, and it helped them to more than 25 million streams from a die-hard fan base.

The members explained “When It Breaks” as a song that communicates the anxiousness the entire world feels right now.

“It’s our interpretation of this strange and imperfect world we’ve come to live in,” the band said. “Things are gonna change and we are gonna be there when they do.”

Harley-Davidson Museum

The Harley-Davidson Museum is celebrating October with more than just its one-of-a-kind collection of motorcycles and memorabilia, as Milwaukee’s own musicians and artists will be on-campus to provide extra entertainment.

De La Buena, Lex Allen and Trapper Schoepp will take the stage Oct. 11 as part of a Rock the Green event. Tickets cost $10 and benefit Jazz Gallery Center for the Arts, Danceworks and Schlitz Audubon Nature Center.

Artists are also invited to participate in “Drawing in the H-D Museum” as part of Gallery Night and Day. Philip Salamone will take participants through the creative process in the event which will take place Oct. 16.

New all-electric LiveWire motorcycles will be available for demo rides Oct. 17 and 18. In promotion of the new Apple TV+ series “Long Way Up,” everyone who rides one of the motorcycles will receive a limited-edition LiveWire poster.

While guests are welcomed back to the museum, the first priority is safety. To see how the Harley-Davidson Museum is protecting guests, you can click right here.

They also have a few must-see exhibits available for only a little while longer.

Taming the Road in Style shows Harley-Davidson from the beginning. At a time in which motorcycles were nothing more than chunks of dirt, stone and other debris, designers struggled to build a comfortable bike. Many improvements to suspension, seats and frames later, Harley-Davidsons looked nothing like they did at their inception. Taming the Road in Style traces the history of Harley-Davidson motorcycles all the way until the most modern models. This exhibit closes Nov. 8.

“Tex’s Motorcycle” is a painting by Stevan Dohanos, who frequently contributed to the “Saturday Evening Post.” On the streets of Georgetown, Conn. was “Tex” Keller’s personalized motorcycle. He used nickel spots to decorate his saddle bag and put fur on his saddle. While prints of the painting are available all over the country, the original can only be seen at the Harley-Davidson Museum.

Building a Milwaukee Icon: Harley-Davidson’s Juneau Avenue Factory” is a collection of architectural drawings, including plans for the original facility on Juneau Avenue. Pencil drawings and archival photos show how Harley-Davidson grew from producing 1,000 motorcycles in 1909 to 27,000 in 1920. The Milwaukee factory continued to expand and is still the home of Harley-Davidson 100 years later.

“Building a Milwaukee Icon” shows Harley-Davidson in the middle of the period during which Milwaukee was known as the “Machine Shop to the World.” The Harley-Davidson Museum social channels will be providing behind-the-scenes looks at this exhibit.

They also offer tours. Engines 101 is a class taking visitors inside the engine. How does a powertrain work, and what’s so special about the 4-stroke engine? It’s all available to learn in a classroom setting. Ticket are available right here.

The H-D Museum Campus Walking Tour is the best way to absorb Harley-Davidson history and culture in the great outdoors. You can download a PDF of the campus map by clicking right here.

I ❤️ Beirut

By Justin Lyons

Mika announced Wednesday that his “I ❤️ Beirut” concert, which was live-streamed Sept. 19 on his YouTube channel, raised more than €1 million for the people of Lebanon.

An explosion at a Beirut warehouse on Aug. 4 killed more than 200 and injured more than 5,000.

Ticket sales, sponsors and public donations all contributed to the large sum that will be split between the Lebanese Red Cross and Save the Children.

Tickets were purchased in 120 different countries via Ticketmaster, the most in the ticketing giant’s history. Donations also poured in from 48 different countries via a GoFundMe page.

The show featured megastars like Salma Hayek, Danna Paola, Rufus Wainwright, Kylie, Mashrou Leila, Louane, Etel Adnan, Fanny Ardant and Laura Pausini. It has also picked up interest from major television stations across the world.

Mika joined Georges Kettaneh, the secretary general of the Lebanese Red Cross, and Kevin Watkins, CEO of Save the Children UK, on a video call Wednesday to make the announcement. He thanked everyone who helped the fundraiser cross the €1 million mark.

“I also wanted to say how amazing this statement of solidarity for the situation in Beirut has been, with tickets for the stream selling to over 120 different countries around the world,” Mika said. “This has been a project that was born out of and made possible by love, and a huge amount of collaboration with friends and many new friends made in the process.”

The certified gold and platinum artist was born in Beirut and is now celebrated around the world.

Kettaneh also thanked donors, saying the Lebanese Red Cross would continue to use the funds to support the people of Beirut.

“The people of Beirut face a long road to recovery, with this generosity and the continued support we have received from around the globe, we can continue to stand alongside them for as long we are needed,” Kettaneh said.

Watkins also chimed in to say Save the Children would work to help children and families affected by the explosion.

“All donations will be going toward our emergency response efforts in Lebanon, which include weather proofing damaged homes, supporting vulnerable and displaced families with food and cash grants, and providing ongoing psychological support for children and families,” Watkins said.

Donations can still be made to the campaign’s GoFundMe by clicking right here. The goal of £150,000 has already been passed, and it is closing in on £200,000.

Labrinth Performs Songs From ‘Euphoria’

For the first time since his Emmy nominations, Labrinth performed songs from the score and soundtrack of the hit HBO series “Euphoria.”

Presented by HBO themselves, fans of the show were treated to “forever,” “still don’t know my name,” “when I r.i.p.” and “all for us.”

Including Labrinth’s for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series and Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics, “Euphoria” racked up six nominations. In her most adult-friendly role to date, Zendaya picked up a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, and we can probably all guess which scene we’ll see when her name is announced as a nominee.

This video is proof that “Euphoria” isn’t leaving gorgeous colors and cinematography behind after the first season. It comes complete with everything but Labrinth wearing “Euphoria” makeup. Rich blues, purples and pinks set us up to be completely lost in the performance the way we were lost in the show.

HBO renewed “Euphoria” for a second season before the first season even ended, but because of production delays, we don’t have a release date yet.

Lovers of the show can still tune in to the 72nd Primetime Emmys on Sept. 20 to cheer for Zendaya, Labrinth and all of the other talented artists and creators responsible for “Euphoria.”

To see the entire performance, you can click right here. You can find “Euphoria” streaming now on HBO Max, and you can listen to the score right here.

Trevor Daniel’s National Television Debut

Trevor Daniel made his television debut Wednesday night, performing his songs “Falling” and “Past Life” on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

Daniel performed with a string quartet in the desert, even climbing into a hot air balloon for the second half of the performance, which you can see here.

Daniel hails from Austin, Texas, and resided in Houston when Hurricane Harvey hit in 2017. He was forced to leave his home with only his music equipment. He decided to move away from his day job as a suit salesman and into the music industry.

He released his debut EP “Homesick” in 2018 with “Falling” as its leading track. The song reached the top 40 in 20 countries as well as second on U.S. Pop Radio and 18th on Billboard’s Hot 100.

He also collaborated with Selena Gomez on a new version of “Past Life,” which was released in June.

Daniel is fresh off the release of his first major album release titled “Nicotine,” and he’ll look to keep pushing forward as a charting artist and pop mainstay.

James Bay Live Stream in London

In support of the Save Our Venues campaign and to follow the release of his new single ‘Chew On My Heart’, James Bay will return to the stage in London to perform a 45 minute live set which will be streamed worldwide for fans to enjoy on July 16th, 2020.

A different kind of live performance in a post Covid-19 world, the stream will be broadcast on James Bay’s official YouTube channel, currently home to 1.73 million subscribers and 927 million video views.

It will be a fundraiser with direct donation links to Save Our Venues, the official music industry crowdfunder started to protect UK grassroots music venues at risk of permanent closure due to Covid-19.

Born in Hitchin and having extensively toured venues on the UK music scene whilst building his career, this is a cause which is extremely close to James’ heart. On his motivation to support the cause, James says: “Big or small, spending time honing your craft and performing in venues is vital on the journey to becoming a successful touring and recording artist. We must never live in a world where live music venues don’t exist. They are as important for the artist as they are for the countless visitors and of course the dedicated staff that devote themselves to running those rooms like clockwork. Venues offer a joy, an escape and a magic you just don’t experience through a screen or even through a stereo speaker. At all costs, we must save our venues.”

The stream will be open to everyone, unticketed with optional donations. The fundraiser page will be live on announce and donations will be open from Monday 13th during the countdown to the stream. After the live performance, the video will be accessible to watch back from James’ YouTube channel going forward, though the ability to donate will close on Monday 20th July.

The Inoculated Canaries Fly High with New Music and Appearances

The Exciting Young New York Quartet Set to Sing and Glide Their Way to Stardom This Summer and Fall with Deep Grooves, Melodic Hooks and Exciting Live Performances

Imagine walking into a record store  and finding a vinyl that takes you back to a time, a decade, where songs had guitar solos, piano melodies and real drums. Think “OLD SCHOOL ROCK WITH A MODERN TWIST” and you’ve just about opened the Canaries’ cage.

On the heels of the release of their single and video for “Sneakers”, The Canaries are gearing up for their brand new song “Donna”, set to drop on the major services September 20th – with the video for the track coming out on Sept 26th.  Don’t miss their performance at Bowery Electric in NYC on Fri Sept 27th.

Singer/Guitarist Mike Rubin says “The lyrics to “Donna” are very tongue and cheek. The song is not meant to take itself too seriously.”

Upcoming Performances:

Mon July 29th – LIVE on 90.3 WHPC radio, Long Island (9pm EST)

Thurs Aug 8th – LIVE on 90.5 WBJB radio, NJ  (7pm EST)

Sun Aug 18th – LIVE at Revolution Bar & Music Hall

Fri Sept 27th – LIVE at Bowery Electric, NYC (8pm EST)

“The Inoculated Canaries are a four-piece rock outfit from New York City with influences they describe as including Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, The Black Keys and Pink Floyd. That Whitman’s Sampler of artists is certainly on prominent parade in the group’s straight up, grass-fed approach to the rock-n-roll realm’s thumping beats and six-string gymnastics.”- ON THE BACK EDGE OF THE BEAT

Eclectic, boundary defying, and never lacking in sarcastic remarks, The Inoculated Canaries (in.oc.u.lat.ed  ca.nar.ies) are a rock and roll force to be reckoned with. Hailing from New York, the “four guys who can’t dance” are striving to leave their musical legacy; inspired by artists such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, and Nirvana, The Inoculated Canaries are constantly pushing themselves to explore new, innovative sounds while making their presence known.

The unforgettable quartet is composed of Michael Rubin (guitar, vocals), James Terranova (drums), Dylan Gross (bass), and Brian Sweeney (keyboard). Coming from diverse backgrounds and varied musical influences, the band values creativity above all else; striving to combine familiar elements with the unexpected, The Inoculated Canaries attempt to make sense of individualism and humanity in the most honest way possible:

“We want to take those raw human emotions we all feel in the darkness of our minds and write songs about them. We’re not here to be rich or famous, we’re here to be great. To us, Greatness means making music that is real, and we are absolutely relentless about every single note. Greatness means learning from the best, but always being original.  Greatness is sometimes having to stick up your middle finger to authority, convention and even the person in the mirror… Side-Effects may include crying, laughing, a sudden sense of existential dread, and/or hearing-loss.”

The rockers are immensely passionate about the music they share and the experience they create for fans. The band had the opportunity to open for The Mowglis in 2017 , COIN in 2019 and played ‘Cult of Personality’ live with Will Calhoun and Doug Wimbish of Living Colour. The Inoculated Canaries also worked directly with Matt Squire (producer of Panic! at the Disco, Ariana Grande, The Used, Taking Back Sunday, Demi Lovato and more). They have also worked with producer David Caggiano (who worked with Art Garfunkel).

The Inoculated Canaries’ first EP “The Blue Laws” was soon followed by their single “Don’t Be Late”, a live prog performance “The Fifth Song” and an acoustic version of their song “Jericho”.  Their second EP “Trying Times” was also followed by singles “Count Me Out”, “Who Are You”, “The Lawyer’s Wife” and “Sneakers”.
