The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Amy Winehouse: Documentaries Disapproved by Band and Family

Buzz 14:48PM EDT

Amy: The Girl Behind The Name is one of the most anticipated documentaries of the year thus far, set to shed light on the light and mindset of Amy Winehouse, one of the millennium's brightest rising stars before dying of alcohol poisoning during 2011. One party has decided that it doesn't support the content of the film on the eve of its release at the Cannes Film Festival: her family. Father Mitch Winehouse alleges that the film places an undue amount of blame for her lifestyle upon the family, based on interviews with her then-boyfriend Blake Fielder-Civil (who himself was notorious for supplying her habits). Lawsuits for slander may be pending. In the meantime, check out five other music documentaries that the starring performers—such as The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and Eric Clapton—don't want you to see.READ MORE

Taylor Swift:

Taylor Swift's '1989' Louder Than Classic Metallica, AC/DC and Sex Pistols Records. How?

Buzz 09:23AM EDT

When you think of "loud" albums, you probably don't think about Taylor Swift. However a new study from Ian Shepherd, audio engineer and founder of Dynamic Range Day, demonstrates that in fact the pop star's most recent release, '1989,' is among the loudest albums of all time. Among the album it trumps are AC/DC's 'Back In Black,' Metallica's "Black" album, and the Sex Pistols' 'Never Mind The Bollocks.'READ MORE

Frank Sinatra

7 Great Frank Sinatra Covers from Bob Dylan, Lady Gaga, Aretha Franklin, Sex Pistols and More

Buzz 15:13PM EDT

A source indicated today that Bob Dylan might be considering a second album of Frank Sinatra to accompany this year's Shadows In The Night. Sinatra was himself a master of the cover, often taking popular songs and immortalizing them with his own iconic voice, so it's sensible that plenty of others would cover Old Blue Eyes in turn. Music Times chose a brief set of our favorite tributes to one of the greatest vocalists of all time.READ MORE

David Bowie, circa 1973

5 Great Rock Docs Focusing on UK Acts and The '70s: David Bowie's 'Cracked Actor,' 'The Kids Are Alright' and More

Buzz 15:38PM EDT

David Bowie has had several documentaries made about his legendary and varied career but none have come close to the original: Cracked Era, which debuted on the BBC during 1975 and caught the vocalist following the release of Diamond Dogs and his preparation for the tour in support of the album. More relevantly, it caught Bowie at the peak of his addiction to cocaine and gave viewers a look at the paranoia and mental exhaustion it caused him. Bowie was far from the only British musician from that era to be captured on film. Here are five other documentaries (some mad during the decade and some made later looking back) that give viewers a new understanding of that period in UK music history.READ MORE

Musicians and Knives, Never A Good Combination: Assault Charges from Sid Vicious to Jay Z

Word to the wise: If someone leaks your album early, don't attempt to murder them. It was a d--k move on their part but the court will rarely give you leniency because your victim is a tool. This was what Jay Z learned when he was convicted for stabbing Lance Rivera under the belief that the latter party had bootlegged Vol. 3...The Life and Times of S. Carter. Knives are a less popular tool for murder in the modern era but that hasn't stopped the musicians listed below.READ MORE
