With “Heartbreak Hotel," that young singing sensation, Elvis Presley, pushed recording stars Nat Cole, Patti Page and Perry Como to the sidelines and everyone was talking about him in church. Who is this guy Elvis? What kind of name is that?
Toronto hip-hop group The Sorority is ready to bust out, a debate over posthumous albums, and a new project for R.E.M.'s Peter Buck. Others in the headlines include Tommy Stinson, the Humboldt Broncos, Lukas Nelson, Nana Mouskouri, Cuban music, Benny Lackner, Elvis Presley, Cecil Taylor and the Rock Hall of Fame.
In headlines today, Elvis is remembered 40 years on, Montreal's birthday celebrations, Manchester Arena to reopen, Bonnie Tyler will sing for the eclipse, Kesha earns praise, and the difficulty of drawing Taylor Swift.
