Bob Dylan ain’t talkin’, just walkin’ down this thing called life and today is one of his milestones.

We aren’t sure how he is celebrating, but the internet is showing him a bunch of love Tuesday in honor of his 75th birthday. [More]

The Beatles’ former press officer, who coined the term ‘The Fab Four’ to describe the band, has died.

Tony Barrow represented the band between 1962 and 1968 and also wrote sleeve notes for their early albums, as well as the strip cartoon for the Magical Mystery Tour booklet.

Mr Barrow died on Saturday night, aged 80, at his home in Morecambe.

He had also represented other Merseybeat acts such as Gerry and the Pacemakers and Cilla Black. [More]

From an article in the LA Times:

Barbra Streisand just turned 74, which may make her a grande dame to the generation in which she came of age and quite possibly a relic to a generation of millennials who may scarcely know her, except possibly as their grandparents’ Adele.

That is not an unfair comparison. You could say that Adele is the Streisand of our time, a performer who has the same stratospheric vocal talent Streisand has and draws on many of the same emotional wellsprings as Streisand. But one of the most notable things about Streisand is that there never was anyone like Streisand before Streisand. She arrived sui generis and rapidly proceeded to change entertainment as few performers ever have. [More]
