November 2, 2016

Onetime AC/DC singer Brian Johnson is battling a hearing problem, but that's not stopping him from getting behind the wheel of a race car. On Saturday, in Savannah, Georgia at the Historic Sportscar Racing Savannah Speed Classic, Johnson won the one-hour B.R.M. Vintage Enduro Classic race in his 1970 Number-21 Royale RP4.

The new Rush concert documentary Time Stands Still comes to theaters for one night only on Thursday (11/3), just over two weeks before its November 18th release on DVD and Blu-ray.

Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason will host an online unveiling and Q&A on November 9th in conjunction with the November 11th release of the Pink Floyd box set The Early Years. It will originate from the YouTube Space in London at 1:30 p.m. ET.

During Paul McCartney's regular online Q&A with fans, he talked about how he's struggled with stage fright. The former Beatle recalled his days as part of the "Fab Four" explaining, "Performing, it was always the idea that the audience didn’t like you and you had to prove yourself. I think that’s why a lot of people get stage fright and get nervous"

Newly released is Bob Dylan's "Special Edition No Direction Home 10th Anniversary Deluxe Box Set." The Martin Scorsese directed documentary chronicled Dylan's early years growing up in Minnesota through his breakthrough on the folk scene in Greenwich Village during the early '60s to just prior to his legendary motorcycle crash in 1966. The original cut featured exclusive interviews of Dylan along with a rarely seen peak inside the Dylan archives, which Scorsese -- who interviewed Dylan -- mined heavily for its film, tape and stills collection.
