NEWS BITS
  • Stanley "Buckwheat" Dural Jr., the accordionist and ambassador of zydeco music who performed under the stage name Buckwheat Zydeco, died Saturday following a battle with lung cancer. He was 68. Born in Lafayette, Louisiana in 1947, Dural grew up in a musical family – his father was also an accomplished accordionist – and began playing the piano at a young age. Nicknamed after the "Buckwheat" character on The Little Rascals, Dural started his career as a session musician for artists like Joe Tex and Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown before fronting his own eventies funk outfit, Buckwheat and the Hitchhikers. After his stint in Chenier's band, where Dural also learned to play the accordion, Dural started his own band called Buckwheat Zydeco, a moniker that would become associated with Dural Jr. himself. In 1987, after earning a reputation for their must-see live shows, Buckwheat Zydeco signed with Island Records to release their LP On a Night Like This, the first zydeco album ever released on a major label. Over the next five decades and nearly 25 albums, Buckwheat Zydeco would help popularize zydeco music thanks to their heavy touring schedule and collaborations with artists like U2, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Paul Simon, Willie Nelson and many more. Buckwheat Zydeco's last release was 2009's Lay Your Burden Down. Despite his health issues, Dural Jr. joined his band onstage in April at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Fest. --- rollingstone

  • John D. Loudermilk, the writer of numerous pop and country hits, including "Tobacco Road," "Indian Reservation," "Abilene" and "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye," died Wednesday. He was 82. Born March 31st, 1934, Loudermilk grew up in Durham, North Carolina. Perhaps his best-known composition, "Tobacco Road" has been covered nearly 200 times, with its greatest success coming in 1964, when the Nashville Teens, a British Invasion group, had a Number 11 pop hit with it. A 1958 deal with Columbia netted Loudermilk little success as a solo artist but three years later, he signed with RCA and earned a Top 40 hit, "Language of Love," which also reached the U.K. Top 20. In 1971, Paul Revere & the Raiders recording of his "Indian Reservation (The Lament of the Cherokee Reservation Indian)" would turn out to be his biggest hit. The platinum-selling single topped the pop chart. Other tunes in Loudermilk's impressive body of work include the oft-covered "Break My Mind," "This Little Bird," (Marianne Faithfull) "Ebony Eyes," (Everly Brothers) and "Sad Movies (Make Me Cry)" and "Norman" (Sue Thompson). --- rollingstone

  • Jonathan Cain, longtime keyboardist and rhythm guitarist of rock band Journey, co-writer of the No. 1 digital catalog song in history, Don't Stop Believin', as well as writer of Faithfully and co-writer of Who's Crying Now, Open Arms and many more international hit songs, will release his solo album, What God Wants to Hear, October 21 on Identity Records with The Fuel Music distribution. Cain, who continues to tour the world with Journey, crafted his new solo album from his personal faith-journey that started in Chicago when, at a young age, he wanted to be a priest. His faith was challenged after he survived a horrific fire in third grade at his school, Our Lady of the Angels School, where 92 of his fellow students along with three nuns died that day. Cain found healing and redemption in music, and his long "journey" eventually led him back to the seminal faith of his youth. --- VVN MUsic News

  • Black Sabbath‘s most popular and arguably best album is getting expanded just in time for the holidays. The band’s second album, Paranoid, is being reissued by Rhino as a four-disc set that includes the original 1970 LP, a rare quad mix of the record folded down to stereo and two live shows from 1970, one from Montreux and one from Brussels. The set comes out on Nov. 11. Judas Priest singer Rob Halford penned the liner notes for the upcoming release. “Paranoid is important because it’s the blueprint for metal,” he writes. “It led the world into a new sound and scene.” Paranoid: Super Deluxe Edition includes a hardbound book with new interviews with all band members, photos, a poster and a replica of the book sold during the group’s tour in support of the album. --- ultimateclassicrock

  • A pair of classic Sixties concert films, 1964's T.A.M.I. Show and its 1966 follow-up The Big T.N.T. Show, will come to Blu-ray together for the first time this December as a two-disc collection's edition. For the Blu-ray release, both films received a high-definition transfer, as evidenced by the first sample of the upcoming release: Ike & Tina Turner's explosive cover of James Brown's "Please, Please, Please" from The Big T.N.T. Show. T.A.M.I. Show – short for Teenage Awards Music International and held at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on October 28 and 29, 1964 – featured performances by the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones, Brown, Chuck Berry, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, the Supremes and more. The Big T.N.T. Show recruited the likes of Ike & Tina, the Byrds, Ray Charles, the Ronettes, Bo Diddley, Donovan and more to Los Angeles' Moulin Rouge nightclub in November 1965. --- rollingstone
