NEWS BITS
  • Poet, songwriter, composer and singer Rod McKuen died Thursday in Beverly Hills after suffering from pneumonia. McKuen was 81. McKuen was twice-nominated for Oscars, first for the song “Jean” from the film “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie” in 1970 and then again in 1971 for his work on the animated film “A Boy Named Charlie Brown.” His hit songs “If You Go Away” and “Seasons in the Sun” (performed by Terry Jacks) were based on Jacques Brel works. McKuen was also a prolific songwriter, working with artists including Johnny Cash, Barbra Streisand and Frank Sinatra; Sinatra recorded an album of McKuen’s songs and poems in 1969 which included one McKuen’s most popular hits, “Love’s Been Good to Me.” He published 30 books of poetry including which sold millions of copies and won a spoken word Grammy for “Lonesome Cities.” --- Variety

  • Scott Weiland, former frontman for Stone Temple Pilots is fronting a new group called Art of Anarchy. Joining him in this artful and anarchical pursuit is Disturbed bassist John Moyer, Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal and guitarist and drummer tandem Jon & Vince Votta. The band will drop its self-titled debut in the spring. --- ArtistDirect

  • Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne were recently given co-writing credits on "Stay With Me," after Sam Smith "acknowledged the similarity" between it and Petty's 1989 song "I Won't Back Down" (written by Petty and Lynne). The Recording Academy was asked if Petty and Lynne would be added as nominees for "Stay With Me." Their response: "Since Lynne and Petty didn't do any new writing for this work, we are considering their original work to have been interpolated by Napier, Phillips and Smith for 'Stay With Me." Smith's representative earlier told Billboard: "Not previously familiar with the 1989 Petty/Lynne song, the writers of 'Stay With Me' listened to 'I Won't Back Down' and acknowledged the similarity. Although the likeness was a complete coincidence, all involved came to an immediate and amicable agreement in which Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne are now credited as co-writers of 'Stay With Me' --- Billboard

  • Tom DeLonge, longtime guitarist and co-vocalist of the punk trio Blink-182, has left the group, his bandmates announced in a statement Monday. Suspicions began when the band revealed that Alkaline Trio guitarist/singer Matt Skiba was recruited to join Blink-182 at the group's upcoming headlining set at drummer Travis Barker's eighth annual Musink Festival on March 22nd in Orange County, California. Soon after, Blink-182's Barker and bassist/singer Mark Hoppus issued a statement that DeLonge decided to "indefinitely" leave the band. "We were all set to play this festival and record a new album and Tom kept putting it off without reason," Hoppus and Barker said. "A week before we were scheduled to go in to the studio, we got an email from his manager explaining that he didn’t want to participate in any Blink-182 projects indefinitely, but would rather work on his other non-musical endeavors." --- RollingStone

  • Bob Dylan is appealling to the 55+ crowd by sending a select group a free copy of his latest album.  The free disc will be inserted in 50,000 copies of the next edition of "AARP The Magazine."  It's likely to be received more positively than U2's attempt last year to give out free music digitally. Bono and co. gave every iTunes customer a free download of its Songs of Innocence album,  but drew backlash because the download started automatically. Dylan's Shadows in the Night is a "gift" arriving by mail to recipients randomly selected from AARP's 35 million subscribers. --- MusicNewsNet

The evening ended with a medley of the Beatles' "Golden Slumbers," "Carry That Weight" and "The End" featuring the former Beatle playing with Joe Walsh and Dave Grohl. --- RollingStone
