The Bonnaroo Festival is known for its eclectic all-star lineups, and this year's roster of artists lives up to that reputation with a diverse cross section that cuts across generational and genre lines.
Elton John will be the latest rock legend to take the Deluxe Edition plunge that's all the rage these days. His landmark 1973 double LP 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' is going to be reissued in a variety of formats with some bonus material.
We might not hear much rock in the Top 40 these days, but the genre can still pay pretty well if you're lucky enough to have the right audience. Just ask Paul McCartney, Elton John and Bon Jovi, all of whom cracked Forbes' most recent list of the highest-paid musicians on the planet.
It's easy to complain about singing competition shows like 'American Idol,' 'X Factor' and 'The Voice.' They value karaoke-style singing over performing one's own material, they favor pop flash over personal grit and they've spawned dozens of similar-sounding artists. But when Elton John looks out over the would-be pop stars on TV, he just feels pity.
Elton John -- "dull?" David Bowie -- an "amateur?" These were the opinions of the BBC before the singers became famous, according to newly discovered notes that will be used in an upcoming documentary.
It almost seems too easy to call 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' Elton John's masterpiece, but it's hard to argue against it. Released on Oct. 5, 1973, 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' was the second studio album he put out in 1973, and his seventh in five years. Oh, and it was a double album.
