WILKO JOHNSON – IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

I am very sad to announce that Wilko has recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer of the pancreas. He has chosen not to receive any chemotherapy. 

He is currently in good spirits, is not yet suffering any physical effects and can expect to enjoy at least another few months of reasonable health and activity.

Wilko was a part of the Pub Rock band "Dr. Feelgood" in the mid-70s. Sort of had a premonition of the Ramones...

 
He did not look well in the video nor the still. Sad.{#Meditate}

<br /><br />He has just set off on a trip to Japan; on his return we plan to complete a new CD, make a short tour of France, then give a series of farewell gigs in the UK. There is also a live DVD in the pipeline, filmed on the last UK tour.

<br /><br />Wilko wishes to offer his sincere thanks for all the support he has had over his long career, from those who have worked with him to, above all, those devoted fans and admirers who have attended

Wow, earlier today I heard that Graham Parker and the Rumour have recorded their first album in 31 years ("Three Chords Good," out Nov. 19) and are about to embark on their first tour in as many years. {#Bananajam}The first track on the album is called "Snake Oil Capital of the World." Sounds like he hasn't lost his edge!

The record companies are dead... as it should be. And when I read a piece in Wired yesterday that David Byrne (much as I detest his "music") only nets $58K from a $225K advance, then you know there is something seriously wrong.



Forwarded to me via RetroKimmer this morning:

Mark Knopfler is not releasing his music to the US. He is selling his music directly from his own website.. This is the way musicians need to sell their music now. Very few big record deals are being signed and an aggressive approach to retailing is necessary.

Mark Knopfler's website

=============================================

 
He’s a multiple Grammy winner, one of rock’s most respected guitarists, and a founding member of the multiplatinum AOR legends Dire Straits — and yet Mark Knopfler‘s new album doesn’t have an American release date. What gives?

The new double-disc set, ‘Privateering,’ has been out overseas since early September, and has already garnered waves of critical praise from writers who find Knopfler settling gracefully into the gentle, Celtic-tinged folk rock that has defined his post-Straits career. But unlike his six previous solo releases, ‘Privateering’ isn’t being distributed Stateside by his longtime U.S. record company, Warner Bros.

The label’s antipathy isn’t based on sales — ‘Privateering’ has already graced the upper reaches of the charts throughout Europe — and the songs, which boast guest appearances from an eclectic support crew that includes Fabulous Thunderbirds frontman Kim Wilson and trumpeter Chris Botti, stand up against anything else Knopfler has done with Warners. In this case, it looks like it’s just another case of the music business getting in between the music and the fans.

Knopfler issued an explanation via his Facebook page, letting fans know that “‘Privateering’ will not be released in the U.S. There is a contractual dispute between Mark and Warner Brothers which has resulted in the current situation. The record has been released in all other territories in the world as usual by Universal Music.

“We are disappointed that Mark’s record won’t be released in the U.S.,” continued the message, offering a slender ray of hope: “If the situation changes, an updated statement will be issued. Very many thanks for your continued support.”

In the meantime, ‘Privateering’ is available in a variety of configurations for fans who want to order it direct from Knopfler’s site or import it via online vendors

Radio Recorders, historic sound studio burns in Hollywood

Aside from being musical legends, what do Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin, Louis Armstrong, Sam Cooke, Pat Boone, Bing Crosby and Igor Stravinsky have in common?

"Sure sorry to see this historical place on fire. It has a different name...but it's the old Radio Recorders, place where I started my recording career in 1957 with Sam Cooke, and place where Nat King Cole, BB's and other giant recordings were made...it was the cat's meow in the 1950s and beyond."
