Rock Icon Paul Revere Dead at 76

Paul Revere, the iconic leader of the band Paul Revere and the Raiders, has died at the age of 76. A cause of death has not been revealed but Revere has reportedly been in poor health and he announced his retirement from the group in July. The band's official site broke the sad news to fans with a tribute letter to Revere singed by "Everyone who has ever met you." Here is part of the letter, "Dear Paul, Where do I begin? How do I tell you how much I love you and what you have meant to me? Have you ever met a person and felt like you've known them your entire life, sensed a familiarity and warmth? That's how I felt the very first time I met you, and the feeling only grew stronger the more I got to know you. "Like most people, my initial introduction to you was on television, radio and records, but none of those mediums gave me a real clue to the one-of-a-kind life force that was Paul Revere. "Sitting in an audience at my first Paul Revere and The Raiders concert introduced me to a larger-than-life dynamo of high-energy slapstick, outrageous and spontaneous humor and a genuine child-like joy. Everyone in attendance just knew that you MUST be a wonderful person offstage too, no doubt about it. "Meeting you after a show in the autograph line cemented the deal for everyone. Just as fun, funny and spontaneous as you were onstage, extremely nice and accommodating to everyone who waited in the long lines to meet you. Take a picture - 'SURE, take TWO!' Sign these 20 albums? 'Why NOT, you helped pay for my first house, and my first wife!' "Generous to a fault with your family, your friends and your band, there seemed to be no limit to your kindness. When you turned your attention towards someone, you made that person feel special and in your spotlight. You had a pet name for each person, and you never hesitated to tell them how exceptional they were. You appreciated the talent, beauty, skills and uniqueness you found in others, and you were never shy about telling them so. All the more reason for people to feel wonderful in your presence."

Music Copying Legalized In The UK

(Classic Rock) Copying music for personal use is now legal in the UK - 13 years after Apple's iTunes introduced its CD-ripping function. Until now it's been regarded as piracy to make copies of tracks for backup purposes, or for use on another listening platform. The Intellectual Property Act, which came into force this week, has changed that. Users are now able to keep multiple copies of material they've purchased - but they're not allowed to keep those copies if they sell on the original item they bought. It remains illegal to record streamed music or copy a rented title. Sellers remain able to secure material with DRM software. Minister for Intellectual Property Baroness Neville-Rolfe tells the BBC: "These changes are to bring our laws into the 21st century. They mean that the UK is now responsive to the modern business environment, and more flexible for consumers."

Roger Waters Reacts To New Pink Floyd Album

(hennemusic) Roger Waters has issued a statement regarding the forthcoming album by Pink Floyd, "The Endless River." Due November 10 (Nov. 11 in North America), "The Endless River" is Pink Floyd's first new album in 20 years. "Some people have been asking Laurie, my wife, about a new album I have coming out in November," writes Waters. "Errhh? I don't have an album coming out, they are probably confused. "David Gilmour and Nick Mason have an album coming out. It's called Endless River. David and Nick constitute the group Pink Floyd. I on the other hand, am not part of Pink Floyd." "I left Pink Floyd in 1985, that's 29 years ago," he continues. "I had nothing to do with either of the Pink Floyd studio albums, Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell, nor the Pink Floyd tours of 1987 and 1994, and I have nothing to do with Endless River. Phew! This is not rocket science people, get a grip."
