Recordings by Hendrix, Aerosmith to Grammy Hall
http://bestclassicbands.com/grammy-hall ... 8-1-16-18/
by Best Classic Bands Staff

Classic rock recordings from Aerosmith (1973’s “Dream On”), Queen (1975’s A Night at the Opera), David Bowie (1969’s “Space Oddity”) and Jimi Hendrix (1970’s Band of Gypsys) as well as a 1878 recording from Thomas Edison (“Mary Had a Little Lamb”) are among the newest inductions to the Grammy Hall Of Fame®. The announcement from the Recording Academy™ today (Jan. 16) “recognizes a diverse range of both singles and album recordings at least 25 years old that exhibit qualitative or historical significance.”

Among those also being honored: Linda Ronstadt (Heart Like a Wheel), Johnny Cash (At Folsom Prison), the Four Tops (“I Can’t Help Myself”), the Rolling Stones (“Paint it Black”), Leon Russell (“A Song For You”) and recordings by Nirvana, Mike Oldfield and Sam Cooke.

Each year recordings are reviewed by a special member committee comprised of professionals from all branches of the recording arts, with final approval by the Recording Academy’s National Board of Trustees. With 25 new titles, the Hall, now in its 45th year, currently totals 1,063 recordings and is on display at GRAMMY Museum® L.A. Live.

“The GRAMMY Hall Of Fame strives to embody the changing climate of music throughout these past decades, always acknowledging the diversity of musical expression for which the Academy has become known,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy. “Iconic and inspiring, these recordings are an integral part of our musical, social, and cultural history, and we are proud to have added them to our growing catalog.”

The 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards®, will be broadcast live from New York’s Madison Square Garden on Sunday, Jan. 28, at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT on the CBS Television Network

Rewinding the Charts: In 1980, Queen Got 'Crazy' Atop the Hot 100
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... ing-charts
2/23/2018 by Trevor Anderson

Freddie Mercury's homage to Elvis, which he wrote in minutes — in a bathtub — kicked off the group's best year on the U.S. charts.

QUEEN CHANNELED ELVIS PRESLEY to earn its first No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 single, "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," which crowned the chart on Feb. 23, 1980.

The British quartet — Freddie Mercury, then 33; Brian May, 32; Roger Taylor, 30; and John Deacon, 28 — claimed hit albums in the 1970s with a blend of bold arena rock anthems, including 1978's No. 4-peaking "We Will Rock You"/"We Are the Champions" and the positively baroque "Bohemian Rhapsody," which hit No. 9.

"Crazy Little Thing Called Love" was a departure from the band's trademark swagger, a rockabilly-style number in which Mercury crooned over an acoustic guitar. The song was "Freddie's tribute to Elvis," May told U.K. station Absolute Radio in 2011. "He was very fond of Elvis."

In 1981, Mercury told Melody Maker magazine that he needed only "five or 10 minutes" to write "Crazy" in a bathtub in Munich. In a rare instance, he composed the tune on guitar, which he "couldn't play for nuts ... I couldn't work through too many chords and, because of that restriction, I wrote a good song, I think."

"Crazy" paved the way for a second Hot 100 No. 1 for Queen in 1980, "Another One Bites the Dust," and the album that contained both singles, The Game, became the group's only No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

The band continued to record regularly but stopped touring after 1986 due to Mercury's deteriorating health. One day before his death on Nov. 24, 1991, the frontman confirmed long-standing rumors that he had contracted AIDS. The following year, the group returned to its highest Hot 100 rank since 1980 when "Bohemian Rhapsody" returned to the Hot 100 and flew to No. 2 after its use in a now-classic scene in the hit movie Wayne's World.

Deacon retired in 1997, and after their own brief hiatus, May and Taylor have toured since 2005 with guest vocalists that have included Paul Rodgers and Adam Lambert.

Queen's legacy will next be commemorated in the film Bohemian Rhapsody, due in U.S. theaters on Dec. 25, 2018. The movie stars Rami Malik as Mercury and traces the band for a fifteen-year span, concluding with their famous performance at Live Aid in 1985.

"Crazy," meanwhile, lives on, with Michael Bublé, Diana Ross and Dwight Yoakam among the many artists who have recorded covers one of Queen's crowning achievements.

Does anybody know why Hollywood records occasionally switches Queen's digital sales from the individual Greatest Hits albums to the Platinum Collection and visa versa? This week in America The Platinum Collection has dropped out of all charts to be replaced by Greatest Hits.

And so it happens again, for no apparent reason whatsoever Hollywood Records switch Queen's digital sales form GH to The Platinum Collection resulting in Greatest Hits dropping out of all the charts and The Platinum Collection re-entering :o Can anybody shed some light on this?

Queen + Adam Lambert Lead Hot Tours Recap With Australian Shows
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... -hot-tours
3/7/2018 by Bob Allen

With two performances at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena, Queen + Adam Lambert earns the top ranking on the latest weekly slate of Hot Tours (see list, below) with a $3.3 million gross. The band played the arena on Feb. 21 and 22, the second stop on a trek through Australia and New Zealand that recently wrapped on March 6. Produced by Melbourne-based promoter TEG Dainty, the Oceania leg of the group’s 2017-2018 tour covered six markets beginning with Auckland on Feb. 17 followed by the Sydney shows and dates in Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth.

The iconic band launched its tour last summer in North America, kicking off in Phoenix on June 23. The 25-city run continued through early August and grossed $30 million from more than 300,000 sold tickets at 26 concerts, according to sales figures reported by promoter Live Nation. A European leg through 23 cities followed in November and December, and Queen will return to the continent for a second leg this summer before its finale in Dublin on July 8.

The Hot Tours tally includes several other artists with appearances in Australian markets in recent weeks. Robbie Williams follows at No. 2 in the rankings with his own two-night stint at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney. The English pop star performed for 21,686 fans, logging more than $2.6 million in sales at the venue on Feb. 28 and March 1 during the Aussie leg of his Heavy Entertainment Show tour. Fall Out Boy lands at No 7 based on a March 2 performance at the Sydney arena attended by a crowd of 11,264.

Two other Sydney venues also impact this recap of Hot Tours beginning with Hordern Pavilion that hosted Macklemore, ranked fourth based on a three-show gross of $1.1 million. The Seattle-born artist performed at the arena during February as part of his Gemini trek. Finally, an orchestral tour – Star Wars: A New Hope – Live In Concert – takes the No. 6 slot on the recap with two performances at the ICC Theatre in Sydney on Feb. 16 and 17.
