Billboard Hot 100 vs. Official Charts Company by Decade: Madonna, 50 Cent, Mark Ronson and 40 Years of No. 1s

Buzz 14:59PM EDT

Few people realize just how different the music across the pond is from that we listen to in America, that the Hot 100 doesn't exist in the UK, and that its equivalent to our singles chart doesn't just feature a whole bunch of American artists with even more One Direction and Ellie Goulding tracks. Music Times is looking back at the last five decades of music, and at the no. 1 hits on April 2 every ten years on the spot, going back to 1975. The ultimate contest, of course, is which country has better taste. Last month the win went to the UK in the best-of-five showdown. This month features Madonna, 50 Cent, Mark Ronson and more in the field.READ MORE

Robert Plant Praises Phil Collins for Encouraging His Solo Career After Led Zeppelin's Split

Buzz 16:46PM EDT

Robert Plant recently revealed that after John Bonham's death and Led Zeppelin's split, there was one musician who really helped jumpstart his solo career. Genesis drummer/singer Phil Collins gave the vocalist some much-needed encouragement to break out as a solo act. Plant has now been recording music as a solo artist for more than three decades and he has been quite successful. After Zeppelin disbanded, Plant did not know how to start over, but other musicians were ready to play with the popular singer, Blabbermouth notes. "I made my business to go out and start again at the age of 32 — it's, like, hysterical, really, when you think about it now," he said. "But I worked and worked with these guys — Robbie Blunt, who was a particularly fine guitarist. And I was graced by my first two solo records 'Pictures at Eleven' and 'The Principle of Moments.' A drummer contacted me and said, 'I love Bonham so much I wanna sit behind you when you sing. It was Phil Collins. His career was just kicking in and he was the most spirited and positive and really encouraging force, because you can't imagine what it was like, me trying to carve my own way after all that."READ MORE

Phil Collins Backs Out of First Planned Gig in Four Years

Buzz 16:42PM EDT

Phil Collins was scheduled to play his first gig in four years — a short, "semi-acoustic" gala fundraiser show benefitting his Little Dreams Foundation — but backed out of the Saturday, Dec. 6, engagement at the last minute due to "some sort of neurological affliction," according to miami.com. The site reported the following: "He came out at the evening's end to greet the crowd, thank them and apologize, saying that he'd been working with doctors for the past two days and that sound checks leading up to the concert went poorly. 'Trust me, you wouldn't enjoy it,' he insisted when the gracious audience, calling out, 'We love you, Phil!' tried to encourage him to sing anyway." Apparently the night was saved by the other acts in the lineup, which included The Little Dreamer performers — a group of underprivileged youth who have developed their talent through Collins's foundation — and Collins's 13-year-old son Nick, who played OneRepublic's "Good Life" with a band and then performed a five-minute dueling drum solo with another kid. Professional artists Richard Marx, Laura Pausini, Gig D'Alessio, Anna Tatangelo and Alejandra Guzman also contributed music to the night.READ MORE
