A critical piece of rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia is to go on sale next month, with the news that the first ever recording contract signed by The Beatles is to go under the hammer in New York.
The Associated Press reports that the contract, believed to have been signed when The Fab Four were in Hamburg, Germany in 1961 serving as backing band for Tony Sheridan on the song ‘My Bonnie’, will be up for auction alongside about 300 other pop music artefacts sold by the estate of Uwe Blaschke, a German record producer and graphic designer who died in 2010.

Sir Paul McCartney gave up weed a long time ago.
Sir Paul McCartney is a family man and he doesn’t want anything to interfere with his responsibility. Case in point: the musician has allegedly given up weed to set the right example for his five grandchildren.
Macca gave up his "wild child" lifestyle for his grandchildren.
In fact, Macca hasn’t smoked in a long time. The 72-year-old former Beatle, who has five children and eight grandchildren, said he last smoked "a long time ago" and now prefers a glass of wine or a "nice margarita".
The former Beatle has five children and eight grandchildren.
At 72 years young former Beatle Paul McCartney has put his wild days behind him, admitting that the last time he smoked cannabis was ‘a long time ago.’ Speaking to The Mirror newspaper, Sir Paul revealed that these days he’s now more likely to be caught having ‘a glass of wine or a nice margarita’, rather than smoking a spliff.
McCartney now follows a clean, healthy lifestyle.
"I don't do that any more. Why? The truth is I don't really want to set an example to my kids and grandkids. It's now a parent thing," he told the Mirror. "Back then I was just some guy around London having a ball, and the kids were little so I'd just try and keep it out of their faces."
The show's casting director told The Huffington Post that she came very close to securing the former Beatle to play Ross's father-in-law.
In a new interview with The Huffington Post, the NBC show’s casting director Leslie Litt revealed that she tried extremely hard to get the ex-Beatle to star as Ross’ would-be father-in-law in a 1998 episode, but it conflicted too much with his recording and touring schedule for him to fit in.
Litt envisaged McCartney as playing Ross’s (David Schwimmer) English fiancée Emily’s (Helen Baxendale) father in the two-part finale to season 4.

The study found there had been three music revolutions since the 1950s.
A study by the University of London and Imperial College has concluded that the emergence of hip hop has had the biggest impact on the charts of any genre since the 1950s. The study also found that the importance of The Beatles may have been overstated, suggesting that the fab five did not spark a musical revolution.
The Beatles may not have been that revolutionary
The study found there were three musical revolutions on the charts, the first being in 1964 with the rise of rock and roll bands such as The Beatles. The second was in the mid 80s with the use of synthesisers and drum machines, while the third came in 1991 when rap and hip-hop infiltrated the mainstream charts.

Rihanna will be performing at the Super Bowl DirecTV Party on Saturday.
A week after the single’s surprise release, Rihanna has teased the video for ‘FourFiveSeconds’.
We’ve had a week to listen to 'FourFiveSeconds', Rihanna’s collaboration with Kanye West and Paul McCartney but now the singer has previewed the single’s forthcoming video with a denim-tastic behind the scenes look.
Rihanna has collaborated with Kanye West and Paul McCartney on 'FourFiveSeconds'.
In the video Rihanna explains that 'FourFiveSeconds' is the first song that her fans are going to hear from her new album and that this video will be their first visual.
The trio will reportedly perform new single 'FourFiveSeconds' live at the 57th Grammy Awards next weekend.
The 57th Grammy Awards is due to feature a number of high profile collaborations, but the biggest announcement may be still to come. Rumour has it that Rihanna, Kanye West and Sir Paul McCartney will be performing a live rendition of RiRi’s new single ‘FourFiveSeconds’.
The unlikely trio will reportedly take to the stage at the ceremony in Los Angeles next weekend. A source has told ‘The Sun’ newspaper: “Rihanna's seriously pleased to have bagged a big slot at The Grammys and two huge names to kick off her comeback. Paul McCartney's a Grammys regular and it will give Rihanna serious kudos to have a Beatle backing her on stage. It is going to be a huge Grammys moment.”

The latest collaboration between Paul McCartney and Kanye West is another acoustic piece, backed by Rihanna.
Remember that Paul McCartney/Kanye West collaboration they teased with the release of Only You last year? Well, it’s happening – this week saw the creative duo drop FourFiveSeconds – an acoustic offering in the vein of their previous track. FourFiveSeconds was made available on RihannaNow.com over the weekend.
Could the West/McCartney partnership evolve into a full album?
The track is an anti-negativity anthem in the same vein as West’s 2014 album Yeezus, with him and Rihanna providing all the vocals as McCartney backs them on piano. It’s a smooth track, and definitely should make it on your weekend playlist (maybe in between Kedrick Lamar’s I (Love Myself) and Chance the Rapper’s No Better Blues). It’s Kanye’s second crack at the acoustic, minimally-produced, no beat genre and we’re pretty into it.

But that hasn't stopped him lending his voice to the accompanying single of newest shooter game, Destiny
He was the hero of the 60s and 70s as one quarter of The Beatles and Sir Paul McCartney certainly hasn’t slowed down since the demise of the greatest British band of all time. If anything he’s branched out into even darker corners than he may have discovered with John, George and Ringo with his latest single, Hope, which accompanies the release of a new video shooter game, Destiny.
Paul McCartney can add video game soundtrack to his longest list of musical accomplishments

In an interview on ‘The Jonathan Ross Show’ which is due air on Saturday night on ITV in the UK, the former Beatle branded Lennon’s murderer Mark David Chapman “the jerk of jerks”.

The former Beatle urges people to become vegetarians one day a week by rapping in a short promotional video.
British legend Sir Paul McCartney is known for being an extremely talented musician and singer, which he has frequently demonstrated throughout his 50-year career with The Beatles and as a solo artist, but his rap skills aren't quite as adequate yet.

While the eventful life of Fela Kuti provides more than enough subject matter for a biographical documentary, award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney weakens the film with a second narrative strand that feels like another movie altogether. He did the same thing with last year's The Armstrong Lie, which compromised the Lance Armstrong scandal with clips from an abandoned glowing doc about his earlier comeback. This time, he has intercut Fela's story with a theatre group trying to mount a show about his life.
Born in 1938, Fela is considered one of the most important figures in 20th century Africa. As a pioneering composer and performer, he transformed Nigeria's musical landscape, all while standing up for human rights and criticising political corruption, often at considerable risk of retaliation from Nigeria's oppressive government. As a young man, he was influenced by jazz clubs he visited in London and Los Angeles, and returned to Lagos to start his own iconic venue, The Shrine. A lone voice against government corruption, he lived a communal life with countless wives, girlfriends and children, and he very nearly sabotaged his career with heavy drug use. But even with his death in 1997 at age 58, he challenged the Nigerian state propaganda machine, which had declared that Aids did not exist in the country.
This story is told with a superb wealth of archival footage, stills and interviews, letting Fela himself speak and sing as his life traverses the first 50 years of Nigerian independence. This is such a vitally important story of a seriously revolutionary man that it's utterly gripping. So it's rather frustrating that Gibney weaves it together with the project to tell Fela's story through a Broadway musical. The practice and performance clips offer dramatic recreations of events in Fela's life, putting his music in context, but the actual home movies and newsreel clips tell us a lot more.

Tom White, Jacob Murray and Luke Koester caught the billionaire and the music legend unawares.
Internet fame may not exactly be hard to come by these days but it's hard to begrudge limelight to the snap-happy antics of a few rather cheeky Nebraskan teens who made the most of celebrities being in town.
Tom White, Luke Koester and Jacob Murray wasted no time in cementing the moment when they spotted Sir Paul McCartney and Warren Buffett chilling on a bench in Dundee. The musician and the Omaha-based billionaire, who dined together during their evening in Dundee, appear to notice the photo being taken but do not object to the cheery fans.
Murray shared the image on Twitter on Saturday night, writing "Best picture of the night with @WarrenBuffett and @Paul McCartney goes to Tom White!"

My night is awesome!!!!!" he wrote before lamenting "Too bad he couldn't sign my Abby Road vinyl :/"

In 1964, black and white music comedy 'A Hard Day's Night' was released, starring the world's most famous rock band The Beatles. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr took to the big screen at the peak of what was commonly referred to as Beatlemania, but not to do your average music documentary. The movie shows the Liverpool lads' eventful trip from their hometown to London, encountering overexcited fans, dealing with Paul's very irresponsible grandfather, and going on a rather comical trip around the city in a bid to find Ringo after Paul's grandfather convinced him to wander off. Luckily enough, no problem was too serious and they eventually managed to hit the stage for a major concert to be televised for the movie.

Trent Reznor Unleashed His Fury On The Grammys Organisers After His Performance Was Cut.
"Music's biggest night... to be disrespected. A heartfelt F**K YOU guys," a disgruntled Reznor tweeted after learning of the Grammys producers' decision to curtail the live coverage. Rock fans watching the show were similarly outraged and sent a barrage of tweets directed at the Grammys organisers. The supergroup had already instilled awe with a rendition of NIN's 'Copy of A' when the rock legends' performance was cut short mid-way through the recent QOTSA hit 'My God Is The Sun.'
The former Beatles reunited to perform together at this year's Grammy Awards.
Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reunited at last night's Grammy Awards in LA with their first joint public performance in over three years. The former Beatles and only surviving members of the sixties pop sensations joined forces once again for a rendition of McCartney's new single, 'Queenie Eye' and a long-awaited reunion.
Paul McCartney Enjoyed A Triumphant Run At Last Night's Grammy Awards.
Beatles fans may have preferred McCartney and Starr to perform one of their former band's classic hits but few were disappointed when Paul took his seat behind a psychedelically-decorated piano and Ringo got comfy behind his drumkit to play the track from Paul's new album, New. The duo's performance marked the 50th anniversary of the TV appearance that secured them fame in the US with The Beatles.
Organisers of the 56th Grammy Awards have confirmed Madonna and Macklemore will be teaming up to perform Macklemore's 'Same Love.'
Madonna and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will be performing together at the Grammy Awards ceremony on Sunday! The organisers of the show confirmed collaboration yesterday (25th January) and the artists teaming up has pleasantly surprised a number of commentators.
Madonna was confirmed as appearing on the show on Friday (24th January) and it was initially thought she would appear alone. However, today it has been confirmed the 55-year-old pop icon will be teaming up with Macklemore, the hip hop duo comprised of 30-year-old Ben Haggerty and 25-year-old Lewis. They will be performing Macklemore's 'Same Love' which is nominated for Song of the Year. The duo is also nominated for another six Grammy awards including Best New Artist and Album of the Year. Madonna has won numerous Grammy awards over her thirty five year career, including the award Macklemore are nominated for two occasions.
Madonna has recently been suffering from a minor injury from dancing in high heels, yet the 'Holiday' singer was not letting this get in the way of her performance. The singer posted a picture on Instagram with the caption: "It's official! I'm off my crutches and I'm looking for the perfect pair of heels to wear to the Grammys." Initially fans assumed the singer would simply be attending the Grammys as a guest but now can be certain the pop legend will once be returning to high heels in order to perform from an even more elevated position at the award ceremony.

The acts have been announced for a rock-tastic Grammys finale.
Nine Inch Nails, Queens Of The Stone Age, Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl and Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham have all been announced to play at the finale of the upcoming 56th annual Grammy Awards, which will take place on Sunday.
Nine Inch Nails Have Been Confirmed To Play At The Grammys This Year.
Such a gathering of alt-rock icons will represent a Grammys first for QOTSA and Nine Inch Nails, true rock 'n' roll leviathans. "We're incredibly excited about this number," Grammy executive producer Ken Ehrlich said in a statement, via SPIN. "There's nothing better than when the Grammys can rock out, and to have these artists all together on one stage, doing a number that, when they presented it to us, knocked us out, is going to turn out to be one of those Grammy moments that people talk about for a long time. Long live Trent, Josh, Dave and Lindsey and these great bands!" Ehrlich added.
The announced performance has heightened rumours that the pair will also perform together at the Grammy Awards
It was revealed early last week that Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr would be among the performers at this years Grammy Awards, a prospect that had a number of people speculating that this spelled an on-stage reunion between the two surviving Beatles. Whilst we still wait on any word regarding that, Ringo has confirmed that the two will be reuniting on stage soon, but not at the Grammys.
Ringo was given a Lifetime Achievement Award bt The David Lynch Foundation
The drummer was in attendance at an awards gala put on by The David Lynch Foundation in Los Angeles on Monday, 20 January, where he was bestowed with the Lifetime of Peace & Love Award. Whilst there, he was grilled on his upcoming Grammys appearance and whilst he sidestepped the part concerning whether he and Paul will be performing together at the ceremony, he did confirm that a special performance involving the two will be taking place some time before it.
