  • Lionsgate TV and Amazon are working on a deal to develop a new hourlong television show “inspired by characters and themes from Bob Dylan’s vast archive of songs,” according to Variety. The show will be called Time Out of Mind, after Dylan’s 1997 album. Writer-director Josh Wakely (Beat Bugs, coming to Netflix this summer) has secured the rights to Dylan’s catalog and will oversee the project. Time Out of Mind is the latest music-inspired series Amazon has announced; the streaming service is also currently working on a Grateful Dead-themed drama produced by founding member Bob Weir. --- Spin

  • Nearly half of vinyl buyers do not actually play the records they purchase, according to a new survey. Some 41 percent of vinyl buyers polled by ICM said they own a turntable which they do not use, while a further seven percent admitted that they do not even own a turntable. The remaining 52 percent of respondents said they own a turntable which they do use, the BBC reports. Meanwhile, half of those polled said they have streamed an album online before investing in a vinyl copy, suggesting that streaming may actually boost sales of the retro format. --- NME

  • In the wake of Prince‘s death last week, we’re learning all sorts of cool stories about him and his interactions with other rock greats. The latest comes from Jonathan Cain of Journey, who recalled when Prince rang them up in 1984 to see if the new song he was working on was too similar to their hit ballad, “Faithfully.” Cain, the sole composer of “Faithfully,” told Billboard that he remembered going to Columbia Records’ office in Los Angeles to take a call from Prince. “I want to play something for you, and I want you to check it out,” Cain recalls Prince as telling him. “The chord changes are close to ‘Faithfully,’ and I don’t want you to sue me.” The song was “Purple Rain,” and upon hearing it, Cain not only had no problem with the changes, but was blown away by what he heard. “I thought it was an amazing tune,” Cain said, “and I told him, ‘Man, I’m just super-flattered that you even called. It shows you’re that classy of a guy. Good luck with the song. I know it’s gonna be a hit.'” Billboard brings up the possibility of Cain asking for a co-writing credit, which the keyboardist immediately nixed. “No, no, that’ll just bring bad juju on you, and you don’t want to do that,” he said. “I just thought it seriously showed the kind of caring, classy guy Prince was. He wanted to check in with [me] and make sure I wasn’t going to say, ‘That sounds like “Faithfully.”‘ To thank him, Prince comped Cain seats for when the Purple Rain tour hit San Francisco’s Cow Palace. --- UCR

  • Apple Music has surpassed 13 million subscribers, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed Tuesday. That represents growth of 2 million subscribers since the company last disclosed numbers in February.

Apple Music costs $9.99 a month and offers a catalog of streaming music, access to curated radio stations and exclusive originals such as the documentary of Taylor Swift's 1989 Tour. --- Billboard

  • Roger Daltrey has spoken out against AC/DC's treatment of their longtime vocalist Brian Johnson and their upcoming concerts with Axl Rose in a new interview where the Who singer labeled the remaining Rock or Bust concerts with the Guns N' Roses singer as "karaoke." Speaking to the London Free Press, Daltrey first railed against AC/DC for their "curt" treatment of Johnson after that singer revealed he could no longer tour due to ear issues that could result in total hearing loss. "I mean I really feel badly for Brian," Daltrey said. "It must be heartbreaking for him after all the service he’s given that band over the years. I thought their farewell statement to the press and to Brian was fairly curt to say the least. I felt for him. That must have hurt." --- rollingstone
