Keith Richards-"Sgt. Pepper's Was Rubbish"

In an interview with Esquire magazine, Keith Richards covered many areas including how he thought The Beatles got a little bit carried away in the late 60's.

Esquire: I've been thinking about Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper, and The White Album and listening to Beggars 
Banquet, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers, and Exile on Main St. Over the past 20 years, I've 
listened to that Stones stuff far more often.

Keith: No, I understand—the 
Beatles sounded great when they were the Beatles. But there's not a lot of roots in that music. I think they got carried away. Why not? If you're the Beatles in the '60s, you just get carried away—you forget what it is you wanted to do. You're starting to do Sgt. Pepper. Some people think it's a genius album, but I think it's a mishmash of rubbish, kind of like Satanic Majesties—"Oh, if you can make a load of shit, so can we."

Pretenders Chrissie Hynde Memoir Coming

There aren't a lot of details yet, but we do know that Pretenders frontwoman Chrissie Hynde will publish a memoir. Due on September 8th, you can imagine as frank as she has been in interviews, that the book will be no different. In fact, the press release has quotes like "incredibly frank” and "strikingly intimate portrayal." There should be plenty of material here, from losing early members of The Pretenders to divorce from Simple Minds frontman Jim Kerr.

McCartney and Kanye to Collaborate

Rapper Kanye West seem to have scored the ultimate guest artist for his next album. According to Page Six, West has recruited none other than Sir Paul McCartney to make an appearance on his next album.

The publication report that McCartney might be working on several songs together with West. Macca has previously expressed interest in working with either West or Jay Z, and it now seems as if at least one of those collaborations is set to happen.

McCartney recently had the honor of being the last artist to play San Francisco's famed Candlestick Park before the venue is demolished. Macca was the perfect choice for the event, since the stadium was the place for the Beatles' last concert way back in 1966.
