7 Bands Keith Richards Hated (at the time): Led Zeppelin and The Beatles(?)

Buzz 16:14PM EDT

Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones surprised the world this week when he claimed in an interview that The Beatles' 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'—what many consider to be the best album of all time—was a "mishmash of rubbish." Few people could maintain a career after dissing The Beatles, but Richards, regardless of whether we agree with him, has that sort of clout. And he didn't forgive his own band from experimenting with psychedelia, comparing the "rubbish" of 'Sgt. Pepper's' with the Stones' 'Their Satanic Majesties Request.' The guitarist wasn't shy about airing out his complaints regarding other huge acts, even when he was younger. In fact, during a 1969 interview with Rolling Stone, he badmouthed everyone from Led Zeppelin to, yes, The Beatles.READ MORE

Music Times digs up less-then-classics from KISS, the Jackson 5 and Girls Generation for further examples of bad uniform choices on record art.READ MORE

Keith Richards Disagrees with World: 'Sgt. Pepper's' is "Mishmash of Rubbish"

Buzz 10:04AM EDT

It's impossible to universally agree that any one album is the greatest in history, but the closest we've come is 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,' The Beatles' iconic release that has resonated with both its music and art. Numerous publications have named the band's 1967 album as the singular best record ever put to wax (many make the same argument for Revolver as well). One person familiar with the scene disagrees. Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards defied conventional expectations this week, describing 'Pepper's' as "rubbish."READ MORE

Biggest Contracts in Music History: Jay Z, Lil Wayne, Michael Jackson and More

Buzz 15:32PM EDT

Stevie Wonder struck it rich 40 years ago on this day when he signed what was, at that point in history, the most lucrative music contract ever: $13 million for seven years and seven albums for Motown/Tamla Records. Granted, things have gotten bigger in the four decades since—both in terms of payouts and inflation rates. Here are the five biggest contracts signed in music history, not adjusted for inflation. Understand that many of these deals won't ever be surpassed due to the increasingly smaller likelihood that a performer or band will sign for such lengthy periods. Jay Z, Lil Wayne and more cash in.READ MORE

Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood and The Faces Reuniting for Rock 'n' Horsepower Show

Buzz 10:25AM EDT

The Faces—a group featuring Rod Stewart and The Rolling Stones' Ronnie Wood—have finally figured out a legitimate reunion date, after years of cancelled plans and false alarms. The band's remaining members will join together for a gig at this year's Rock 'n' Horsepower concert in Surrey. It's not too surprising a gig, as Stewart and drummer Kenney Jones have organized the event for the last three years. The event serves as a fundraiser for the Prostate Cancer UK charity.READ MORE

Queen Elizabeth and Concerts: The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, One Direction and More

Buzz 15:25PM EDT

Fifty years ago on this date, The Beatles debuted its new film, Help!, in London and there was a very big name in the crowd at the debut: Queen Elizabeth II. This constituted arguably the greatest gathering of famous British-folk in the last century, while also demonstrating that the monarch was more than happy to take in popular entertainment along with her constituents (a fan site for the Royal Family notes that she has considerably more "lowbrow" taste than her husband, Prince Philip). If you need more proof of the Queen's enjoyment of popular music, here are some more instances from recent (and not so recent) years.READ MORE

Louis Tomlinson, Lorde, Keith Richards and More Music Superstitions

Buzz 16:15PM EDT

Mike Tyson and Joan Jett began an interesting interchange on this day 30 years ago: The rock star called the up-and-coming boxer before his bout with Larry Sims, whom Iron Mike would crush. Tyson saw the call as an omen of good luck, and insisted that Jett call him before every match for nearly five years. He finally broke the streak during 1990 before facing Buster Douglas...and ultimately lost the fight, a first for his career. The guitarist may not have been the superstitious one in this case, but plenty of musicians have their own good luck ceremonies before concerts. Here are five, including Lorde, Louis Tomlonson and more.READ MORE

50 Years of Rolling Stones No. 1s: "Satisfaction," "Paint It Black" and More

Buzz 16:41PM EDT

Many a joke has been passed about the age of the Rolling Stones...and maybe this fact confirms it: It's been more than 50 years since the band released its first American no. 1 single, "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," which peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 chart from July 10, 1965. It wasn't the "big breakthrough" that the band needed in the United States, but it certainly got the ball rolling faster, ensuring the group's status as one of the biggest bands in music history. The Stones released seven other no. 1 singles over the next 50 years, and you can check them out below.READ MORE
