January 24th, 2013 5:23pm EST
Timothy B. Schmit
Eagles' bassist Timothy B. Schmit has been given a clean bill of health after undergoing surgery for throat and neck cancer.

The Hotel California hit-maker was diagnosed with the disease back in October, but his personal assistant only revealed the news in December, a few weeks after he was hospitalized in New York for the invasive procedure.

In a post on his fan website TimothyBSchmitOnline.com, she wrote, "The final pathology report stated that he appears to be cancer free, both in his throat and neck. He does not need to have chemo or radiation. Now he just has to keep an eye on thin...

Beyonce
Now that Beyonce has officially been named the headliner for the halftime show at Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans, we've decided to put together a little wish-list of acts that we think should provide the entertainment during the 30 minutes of downtime the players have to get rejuvenated for the second half of the big game.

With this year's addition of Beyonce, last year's headliner Madonna, and 2011's Black Eyed Peas shows we also think it's time to get back to some tried-and-true rock and roll.

Tara Reid has sparked rumors she's slipped back into boozing after allegedly enjoying an alcohol-fueled night out in a French ski resort this week.

The American Pie star, who spent 60 days in rehab in 2009 in a bid to kick a drinking problem, has been spending the festive season with pals at the Alpine resort of Courchevel.

On Monday, the group reportedly enjoyed a wild evening at a restaurant called La Mangeoire, ordering numerous bottles of champagne, and Reid even treated fellow revelers to a karaoke rendition of Eagles song Hotel California, according to New York Post gossip column ...

Highlights & Embarrassing Bits Of 'American Idol's' Season 9 Boston Auditions

American Idol
For "American Idol" fans, last night's premiere was nothing if not bittersweet. Sweet because after the long hiatus, "Idol" is finally back, bitter because last night was the last first time we'll ever see Simon Cowell again.

Luckily, we will be able to watch Simon, one last time, make the rounds through various cities and spitting snarky venom at various poor singers. It's a bit of car crash delight that comes but once a year and signals we are again at the beginning of a brand new "Idol" season.

But before we get to the embarrassing bits of attempted music, let's review the actual...

Madonna Is Music's Biggest Moneymaker

Madonna
In the last 12 months, a sold-out worldwide tour, international sales of her latest album, and lucrative endorsement deals put Madonna's earnings at $110 million, according to Forbes.com. Nowhere near the top 10 list? Britney Spears.

In second place is Celine Dion, who earned an estimated $100 million from June 2008 to June 2009. Beyonce Knowles came in third, earning $87 million. She dropped a double album, starred in two films, and embarked on what is expected to be, at minimum, a 110-date international tour.

Writer's Viewpoint: Disputing An Iconic Song List

Beatles
It takes a cataclysmic event to derail Overrated/Underrated from its usual Friday spot. Currently the Oscars have been serving as that disruptive force, but this week interruption comes from the most unlikely source: a sports columnist from the Kansas City Star.

This is because Joe Posnanski has suggested on his blog that we stop voting artists into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame and shift our focus to Hall-Worthy songs. Songs he deems "Iconic". His criterion for including a song on the ballot is that it be "A song that represents a set of beliefs or a way of life. So, I see these s...

Five 'Love Songs' That Aren't Really Love Songs

July 30th, 2008 9:32am EDT
Sting
The time has come. You've fallen in love. You just can't stop thinking about your significant other. You're ready to take the next step. You're ready to make them a mix tape.

Seems easy right? Just Google "Love Songs" and pop the first 15 you see into your iTunes, hit the circle in the upper right-hand corner and burn away. But not so fast, Romeo. There are pitfalls in the world of blindly including love songs.

In fact, there are many songs purported as anthems of adoration that are anything but. Tunes so misinterpreted that they turn into wedding standards and accompany f...

The Most Underrated And Overrated Breakup Songs

June 27th, 2008 10:51am EDT

Of all the different types of songs, none is more essential than the Breakup Song. Sure, love songs are nice and dance songs are fun, but when you're feeling blue, a good breakup song is nearly a panacea. Knowing someone else has felt that low and hearing it perfectly articulated can pry the Jack Daniels from your hands for a minute and allow you to once again think that life is worth living.

Artists produce breakup songs with a prolificacy only outdone by love songs. With so many to choose from, and so many situations in which to listen to them, selecting the best breakup song is im...

AARP Tour: Bands That Shouldn't Be Touring Anymore

Sometimes it seems like a band just doesn't know when to quit. Just imagine how many times you've heard some classic rock DJ try to pawn off front row tickets to Steely Dan, or how many advertisements you've seen for a free REO Speedwagon show at the naval base followed by fireworks and the Glen Hill retirement community brass band. While I'll admit that the willingness of these groups to play every major outdoor amphitheater each summer showcases their tenacity, it doesn't exactly work wonders for their dignity. After a while, playing to half-empty audiences of drunken suburbanites has to ...

Tom Petty Reforms His First Band, Mudcrutch

The long awaited debut album from Mudcrutch, recorded in just two weeks last August, will be released on Reprise Records on April 29. Mudcrutch features Tom Petty, Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench, Tom Leadon, and Randall Marsh.

In the early 70's, they were heroes in their hometown of Gainesville, Florida. Mudcrutch seemed poised for more. But the band never cracked the national music scene or made a full album. Now, more than 30 years later and quite unexpectedly, the Mudcrutch story continues.

In addition to the release of the album on April 29, the band began a short tour of intima...

Can Guitar Hero Top Itself?

April 10th, 2008 2:30pm EDT
Guitar Hero
When the first Guitar Hero was released for the Playstation 2 in November 2005, it was met with both critical acclaim and a lot of buzz: a video game that substituted a simulated guitar for the standard controller? Why, it was unheard of! The game sold a modest 1.5 million copies and was popular enough to launch an entire franchise that has only gotten better with time.

Take, for example, the setlists. The original game, with a mere 47 songs, was composed of almost entirely cover versions. Guitar Hero II, on the other hand, contained 64 songs, four of which were actually recorded by th...

'Thriller-25th Anniversary Edition': A Piece Of History Repackaged & Better Than Ever

1982 was an unforgettable year that gave theater lovers a bite of alien encounters in science fiction film "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial" and one of the biggest selling albums of all time: "Thriller."

At 25 years old, Michael Jackson released his sixth solo album, "Thriller." Although it was released in 1982, the nine-track album that contained seven hit singles including "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" wouldn't see its massive dominance and appeal come into full fruition until 1983.

It seems that The Eagles' long rumored final album, Long Road Out of Eden, outsold Ms. Spears' "Blackout" by 579,000 copies. Hell has frozen over. Sold exclusively at Wal-Mart, Billboard gave Eden the boost to No. 1 after changing an arcane rule, which nixed big box retailers such as Wal-Mart and Starbucks from being...
