Faces will surely melt when this tour kicks off in August.
Best Blues Album isn’t a GRAMMY category that gets much hype, but it’s home to one of the most compelling backstories this year, and likely one you haven’t heard yet.

Clearly, it was a departure for the Kennedy Center Honors. Now in it’s 35th year, the ceremony started out by paying tribute to cultural icons like Fred Astaire, Ella Fitzgerald and Tennessee Williams.

But past ceremonies probably never got as loud as this year’s.
Last night, their guests were Eric Clapton (for a cover of Muddy Waters’ “Champagne And Reefer”) and Florence Welch, of the British band Florence & The Machine, for “Gimme Shelter.”
Last night (November 25), The Rolling Stones played their first arena concert in six years at England’s O2 Arena. The band played a two-hour-plus set, spanning their 50 year career.
