With a sudden wealth of free time on all of our schedules right now as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent quarantine/shelter-in-place ordinances put in place in major cities around the world, the mind lends itself to wandering. And late this week, that wandering led to an amusing video showing up online, riffing on the Now That’s What I Call Music! series of compilation albums of the past 25 years or so — but with a pandemic twist. That’s right … here’s Now That’s What I Call Coronavirus, a mock-up of a 2-CD set featuring all the best…

During the coronavirus pandemic, musicians are getting creative as a means of helping keep music alive despite everybody more or less being relegated to whatever they can do in their homes — and Megadeth bassist David Ellefson is here to help. Through his David Ellefson Youth Music Foundation, he has put together a new initiative, #SchoolsOut, offering up individual music lessons via Skype to music students who may not otherwise be able to receive lessons due to our current situation. https://www.instagram.com/p/B97HxWfAyBZ/ Via the Foundation’s website: We are proud to announce the #SCHOOLSOUT initiative, to give remote one-on-one mentoring sessions and music lessons…

Last week, the Killers premiered a new song titled “Caution” — one that echoes the band’s smash-hit singles of the past, like “When You Were Young,” “Somebody Told Me” and others. On Friday, Brandon Flowers and his band released a music video for the track. As expected given the song’s bombast and uplifting tone, the clip’s rather powerful in its imagery as well. https://www.instagram.com/p/B97-748le_6/ And, as an added bonus, there’s a ripping guitar solo from none other than Lindsey Buckingham: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrpBgN_iUnA A press release notes that the “Caution” music video is part of a longer-form film created by the band…

Is It Any Wonder? is a six-song EP from David Bowie that was released on streaming platforms in February — but today, a limited-edition vinyl/CD version of the collection of unreleased/rare recordings from the musical innovator was released. It’s selling quickly, however: https://www.instagram.com/p/B97einUHW8y/ Featuring some unreleased and rare tracks from David Bowie that came to existence in the 1990s, Is It Any Wonder? captures a particularly intriguing portion of Bowie’s career. One of the tracks is a special mix of “The Man Who Sold The World” from 1996: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhT8debuXc8 It also includes songs like “Baby Universal,” which comes with this…

With the coronavirus pandemic having wreaked major havoc in our society, it’s taken an especially tough toll on musical acts who rely on touring and merchandise sales to survive the business — and on Friday, Bandcamp made a major decision in hopes of helping artists during this rough, uncertain time, echoing a sentiment put out by Alice Cooper earlier in the week. The company announced that it would waive its cut of sales of songs purchased on the website for 24 hours, passing along the following message: The Covid-19 pandemic is in full force, and artists have been hit especially…

Right now, with our everyday way of life turned on its head as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, is the perfect time to hang out at home and refrain from doing pretty much anything else. That’s the whole point of social distancing, after all, and this weekend, Dead & Company will begin a special livestream series that they’re offering up for free to fans. The “One More Saturday Night” series will kick off Saturday on Nugs.tv, a streaming platform that is a key component of the “jam band” scene of which Dead & Company is very much a key…

If you have a platform, use it for good. That’s what some cultural icons have been doing this week, in light of the coronavirus pandemic and the limitations and restrictions it’s placed on all of us, as we wait it out at home in quarantine, exercising proper social distance. And for English comedians/actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who starred in the cult classic 2004 zombie horror/comedy Shaun of the Dead, this whole mess presents a special sort of opportunity. Recreating a scene from the film in which Pegg’s Shaun tries to convince Frost’s Ed to do anything BUT head…
