The 50th anniversary of The Beatles' first visit to America (February 7, 1964) will be marked by the release of a box set containing all the albums they released in the U.S. between 1964 and 1970.
The U.S. Albums is a 13-CD box set that starts with 1964's Meet The Beatles and ends with 1970's Hey Jude.
Each album comes in mono and stereo (except The Beatles' Story and Hey Jude). All the artwork has been faithfully replicated from the original LPs, including inner sleeves. The box set also contains a 64-page booklet with photos and promotional art from the time, as well as a new essay on the band. The release is set for January.
Richie Sambora says he's thinking of returning to Bon Jovi next year. Despite rumors and speculation, Sambora insists there is no "malice" in his leaving the band.
He said, "You get along for 30 years, that's a good marriage...I was coming out of something a little bit different with my solo record...and just didn't go in the right direction for me artistically..."
Richie says he's been using the time away to be with his daughter Ava, and to help his mother, who recently fractured her hip. Sambora is also entertaining the idea of writing songs with Lady Gaga as well as working on a new solo album.
From Slippery When Wet, here's Bon Jovi's classic "Livin' On A Prayer"...from iHeartRadio:
Elvis Presley's last girlfriend is set to publish her memoir next summer. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ginger Alden's book will be titled Elvis and Ginger: Elvis Presley's Fiancee and Last Love Finally Tells Her Story.
Alden promises to "set the record straight" about their relationship, especially in light of tabloid-driven stories about The King's final months of declining health.
She will also touch on his fascination with Eastern religions and "his perceptions of fame." The book is set to go on sale from Penguin on August 5th, just days before the annual Elvis Week in Memphis.
