NEWS BITS
  • Don Henley is stressing that the Eagles are finished, despite an earlier suggestion that they might reform with the late Glenn Frey‘s son. “I don’t see how we could go out and play without the guy who started the band,” Henley tells the Washington Post. “It would just seem like greed or something. It would seem like a desperate thing.” Henley ruminated on the possibility of performing again with Frey’s son Deacon during a September interview, but stressed even then that it was not in the planning stages. Despite that, the story spread quickly. “It really pissed me off, frankly, because I hadn’t talked to the kid about it or his mother,” Henley added. “So, it’s just another lesson in keeping my mouth shut.” --- ultimateclassicrock

  • A royalty battle with potentially wide-ranging implications has ended with an expensive setback for satellite radio service SiriusXM. The New York Times reports that the company has agreed to pay up to $99 million in a proposed two-tiered settlement of the class action suit, which was led by former Turtles members Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan, aka Flo and Eddie, and targeted nonpayment of royalties for the broadcast of recordings made before 1972. As previously reported, the company neglected to pay royalties on those recordings through its interpretation of a federal statute commonly exploited by music services such as Pandora — who also face legal action — and its settlement in the case could be just the first in a series of decisions that help settle the costs and catalogs of various companies in the streaming sector. The Times‘ report says SiriusXM will pay out at least $25 million for its past unlicensed broadcast of pre-1972 recordings, with an additional $15 million potentially to follow depending on the outcome of appeals in process in other jurisdictions. The company has also agreed to purchase a 10-year license for the plaintiffs’ catalogs, set at a 5.5 percent royalty rate that could ultimately be worth between $45 and $59 million over the duration of the agreement. --- ultimateclassicrock

  • Attention (wealthy) Blue Velvet fans: Dennis Hopper's personal, 110-LP record collection, stocked with the late actor's copies of classic LPs alongside rare and unreleased recordings, is available to purchase via Moda Operandi for $150,000, or roughly half the budget of Easy Rider. The collection, offered up by Hopper's daughter Marin, features "handwritten notes to the actor from various artists and several unreleased records, this is a very personal biography of Dennis Hopper's musical journey," the listing says (via Fact). The collection features Hopper's personal copies of classic LPs like the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Simon & Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water, Leonard Cohen's Songs From a Room and Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited, as well as less renowned LP like Jefferson Starship's Dragon Fly and Fleetwood Mac's Future Games. --- rollingstone

  • Joe Corré is the son of Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren and renowned fashion designer Vivienne Westwood. As such, he accumulated an impressive cache of punk rock memorabilia over the years. Now, though, he’s destroyed his entire collection in protest of what he perceives to be the increasing commercialization of the genre. Corré took particular issue with Punk London, a series of events celebrating the 40th anniversary of punk, which were sponsored by institutions including BFI, the British Library, and the Museum of London. “The Queen giving 2016, the Year of Punk, her official blessing is the most frightening thing I’ve ever heard,” Corré said. In a subsequent interview with the Guardian, Corré called punk a “McDonald’s brand … owned by the state, establishment and corporations. It’s time we threw it all on the fire and started again … I think this is the right opportunity to say: you know what? Punk is dead. Stop conning a younger generation that it somehow has any currency to deal with the issues that they face or has any currency to create the way out of the issues that they face. It’s not and it’s time to think about something else.” Thus, on Saturday, Corré set fire to an estimated $7 million worth of punk memorabilia, including rare Sex Pistols recordings, clothing belonging to Westwood and Johnny Rotten, and a Sid Vicious doll with a swastika on it. The collection was torched alongside effigies of politicians, aboard a ship near Albert Bridge in Chelsea, west London. Corré added that if his father had still been alive, he “would have taken this opportunity to say something … about punk rock now being owned by the corporate sector. Whether or not he would have agreed with burning all the stuff — and I think he probably would have done — I think he’d think it was kind of hilarious.” --- C.O.S.
