American singer and actor
Remember Beauregard “Bo” Duke on the TV series “Dukes of Hazzard?” John Schneider played the part of in 127 episodes from 1979 to 1985. He also had roles in “Smallville,” “Dr. Quinnn, Medicine Woman,” “Desperate Housewives,” and many others. In addition to acting, John did a remake of “It's Now or Never,” an Elvis Presley hit. It was one of the highest charting Elvis covers of all time. He had several number one country hits, but he didn't sing the “Dukes of Hazzard” song. That was Waylon Jennings.

On this super special episode of TCBCast, many of our Patreon backers who have had the chance to see Baz Luhrmann's Elvis sent in their reactions to the movie, both emailed and recorded. You'll get to hear a wide range of thoughtful opinions on the movie from the Elvis fans who are among our most engaged listeners and supporters. Then, as a book-end to TCBCast 222 with Bill Bryan, Justin sits down with Anna, the woman responsible for Austin Butler News, the longest-running, #1 source on all things Austin Butler since 2013.

In covering the entire scope of Elvis Presley's career, ELVIS defies certain biopic conventions while embracing others, but it's as distinctively a film by Baz Lurhmann as MOULIN ROUGE. Like that 2001 musical, ELVIS expands the frame of history in an attempt to recreate the earth-shattering effects of a moment in culture, while also poking at some of the uncomfortable questions raised by Presley's popularity. It offers much to discuss, which we do before bringing MOULIN ROUGE into the conversation to compare the two films' shared interest in the tension between art and commerce, to what effect anachronisms are used in each, and how each attempts to toe the line between appropriation and homage. Plus, some recommendations from Keith for supplementary Elvis viewing and reading. Please share your comments, thoughts, and questions about MOULIN ROUGE, ELVIS, or anything else in the world of film, by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, leaving a short voicemail at 773-234-9730, or commenting on our Patreon (patreon.com/NextPictureShow), where you can also find bonus episodes and more.

Why is Elvis known as the King? Baz Luhrmann's Elvis Presley biopic hit UK cinemas on 24nd June 2022, starring Austin Butler as the King of rock and roll himself, and Tom Hanks as his controversial manager Colonel Tom Parker. Let's look back at how Elvis became a global superstar from the 1950s through to the late 70s. Elvis Presley earned his reputation as the King for a seemingly endless list of hits he had throughout his career. Many successful artists have cited him as being their number one influence and to this day, he's still a popular culture icon, even 45 years after passing away. What stuck out the most about Elvis' music? How did the King's decline affect his reputation? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions !

On January 3, a new company called “Apple Computer” was incorporated and the Apple ii went on sale that June...in October, Atari released the ground-breaking 2600 video game console...and in November, boffins running a computer network called Arpanet successfully test something called “tcp/ip” which lay the foundation for the internet... As for music, most of the planet took notice when Elvis Presley died that summer...a big story, yes–but it's not the music story that I'm thinking of...for that, we have to go to England where a perfectly good royal celebration was sullied by four clots called The Sex Pistols...and for that, we should be very grateful...

The movie "ELVIS" tells the life story of Elvis Presley, one of the most famous musicians of the 20th century. Born into poverty in Tupelo, Mississippi, Presley rose to stardom as a teenager in the 1950s. His style and sound were modeled largely after the Black musicians he listened to as a kid and adult.Presley is known as 'the King of Rock and Roll,' but his legacy is complicated. He earned fame and fortune by copying those Black artists who couldn't reach the same level of success because of the color of their skin.Along with the new film comes a new soundtrack featuring a bevy of top recording artists. The 1A Record Club listens to the "ELVIS" soundtrack and discusses the rocker's legacy.Want to support 1A? Give to your local public radio station and subscribe to this podcast. Have questions?

Elvis Presley remains one the most popular rock and roll performers since the inception of rock and roll – his music dominated the pop music landscape in the 1950's and he remained a rock & roll icon through his unfortunate death in 1977. His life has been dissected, discussed, and of course has been portrayed in several movies going back decades. Acclaimed Australian filmmaker Buz Luhrmann (Romeo & Juliet, Moulin Rouge) directs this latest version, an epic biopic about the rise and fall of the man known to many as “The King” who is played by up-and-coming young actor Austin Butler. Tom Hanks also co-stars as “Colonel” Tom Parker who would become Elvis manager throughout most of his career. And what results is 160 minutes of high energy insanity featuring tons of memorable music – Elvis has ENTERED the building! https://livingforthecinema.com/Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/Living-for-the-Cinema-Podcast-101167838847578Instagram:https://www.instagram.com/livingforthecinema/Letterboxd:https://letterboxd.com/Living4Cinema/

Punk rock is about energy, attitude, and message. It's been the gateway drug for a lot of guitarists and music lovers. And those forces are what steered East Bay Ray away from his bar-band gig in 1978. “The little hairs on the back of my neck stood up,” Ray remembered during a https://www.premierguitar.com/artists/forgotten-heroes-east-bay-ray (2016 PG interview). “I saw the Weirdos playing. I said, ‘This is what I want to do.' I phased myself out of the bar band and put an ad up in Aquarius Records and Rather Ripped Records. Klaus Flouride (bassist Geoffrey Lyall) and Jello Biafra (singer Eric Boucher) answered the ad.” And with the addition of drummer Ted (Bruce Slesinger), the Dead Kennedys were born. By the time they recorded their 1981 EP In God We Trust, Inc. (on their own independent label, Alternative Tentacles), Ted was gone and D.H. Peligro (Darren Henley) became their stalwart skin slammer. Through the band's initial eight years, four albums, and an EP, their subversive harpoon of jagged political commentary was tipped by Biafra's lyrics. That got the nation's attention, but what inspires musicians to this day was the power trio's cohesive combination of familiar and unfamiliar elements of punk and primal rock. Sure, you've got the power chords and the four-on-the-floor tempos, but depth and nuance under the biting messaging is essential to the DK's chemistry. Their punk-rock bangers have modal tendencies and atonal flourishes, and some of their most thrilling songs have odd-metered backbones. Their debut single, “California Über Alles,” is a take on composer Maurice Ravel's Boléro, no less. And nobody else in the land of the 6-string shreds quite like East Bay Ray. “One of the reasons our songs have lasted so long is the structure underneath has a lot in common with a Beatles song or a Motown song or even a '30s standard,” he says. “There are basic constructions that make a song work. I really had a hard time copying or figuring out solos off my favorite recordings when learning to play, so I'd develop my own musical method to get from one place to another. It's actually a lack of technique that helped with the music.” His creativity and resourcefulness don't stop there. East Bay Ray was the band's co-producer/engineer on most recordings, and he's tinkered with his own tone tools, assembling partscasters that best suited his approach. Ray has jammed humbuckers into the bridge of a T-style for a twangier bite that helps his rapid-fire arpeggios sting a bit more. He's slapped on short-scale Japanese F-style necks for slinkier playability. And, most notably, he put a Maestro Echoplex in front of his amp to create the signature clanging sound heard on his classic recordings with the band. (“One of my favorite records of all time is Elvis Presley's Sun Sessions. That is one of the records that inspired me to get an Echoplex, to get that slapback echo.”) “We just didn't know the rules on what to play and how to play,” he relates. “That's where not knowing something forces you to make your own solution, creating something unique and new, proving that necessity is the mother of invention. The lack of technique and knowledge helped create our sound and the music.” Before the Dead Kennedys' headlining show at Nashville's Brooklyn Bowl on June 15th, PG hit the stage for a brief but illuminating tone talk. We covered Ray's economically rich setup that includes a single Schecter doublecut and a simplified, solid-sounding Marshall, and we were enlightened about why he puts his Line 6 delay ahead of the amp and what that does to repeats.

On this day in 1977, The King, Elvis Presley, delivered his final live stage performance with a show at the Market Square Arena in Indianapolis. The last two songs he performed that night were 'Hurt' and 'Bridge Over Troubled Water'. Less than 2 months later he would sadly be dead. Joining me to share his thoughts on Elvis and those latter performances is friend of the show, LEE McCORMACK, from the Tramps Like Us podcast.Check out Lee's show - Tramps Like Us - on all good podcast platforms now.

In this episode we welcome dynamic duo Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton to Hammersmith as they prepare for the publication of a newly expanded edition of their mighty Last Night a DJ Saved My Life.Bill and Frank talk about the original mission behind the book, as well as their different routes into dance music. They recall how they met and combined forces in '90s New York, where DJs such as Frankie Knuckles and Junior Vasquez proved transformative figures. Co-host Mark recalls seeing Bill and Frank DJ'ing at Fabric in 2000 and then reading the original edition of Last Night…Recalling their first articles for Mixmag in the '90s, the DJ History duo reminisce about the late Dom Phillips, the magazine's former editor who was so brutally murdered in the Amazon this month. They praise the courage Dom showed in confronting Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro and exposing the criminal gangs behind much of the Amazon's deforestation.Bill and Frank discuss the process of researching and writing Last Night…, barely knowing if figures such as Bronx hip hop legend were even still alive, and explain what turned clubs like Larry Levan's Paradise Garage into "religious" experiences.The week's new audio interview – Bill and Frank's own 2005 quizzing of drum and bass legend Fabio – proves infectiously enjoyable as they hear themselves asking the Brixton-born DJ about Crackers and Spectrum.The episode concludes with thoughts on Elvis Presley and the new biopic made by Baz Luhrman, after which Mark talks us through library pieces he's added about Bill Haley (1957), Billie Holiday (1959) and Buffalo Springfield (1968), while Jasper concludes proceedings with quotes from pieces about Kanye West (2016) and Arlo Parks (2019).Many thanks to special guests Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton. The new edition of Last Night a DJ Saved My Life is published by White Rabbit and available to pre-order now.Pieces discussed: House, Rave, DJ Kool Herc, Dom Phillips, Fabio audio, Elvis, Comeback Special, Elvis and Black Music, Billie Holiday, Bob Dylan, James Brown, Bob Marley, Bill Haley, Buffalo Springfield, Kanye West and Arlo Parks.

TVC 582.1: Musician, historian, producer, and author Chuck Harter joins Ed for the first of two programs that will celebrate the life and career of Elvis Presley. Chuck helped produce I, Elvis, a three-part profile of The King that originally aired in 1992 on the syndicated magazine series Hard Copy. While working on this project, Chuck not only interviewed and got to know several members of the Memphis Mafia (including Charlie Hodge, Lamar Fike, Sonny West, Marty Lacker, Jerry Schilling, and Billy Smith), but obtained first-hand knowledge and insight into Elvis from the people who knew him best. With the highly anticipated biopic Elvis opening in theaters this week, Chuck and Ed take a look at some of the other notable portrayals of The King in movies and on television, including Kurt Russell in Elvis (ABC, 1979), the short-lived but critically acclaimed Elvis weekly series starring Michael St. Gerard (ABC, 1990), and Elvis Meets Nixon (1997).

Support the show! www.Patreon.com/TheWatchAndTalk This week Karen Peterson (@karenmpeterson) & Derek Miranda (@DerekMiranda85) sit down to talk both ELVIS and THE BLACK PHONE. As always, featured reviews are done in two parts, a NON-SPOILER review with letter grade and brief discussion, followed by a more in depth SPOILER review. PLOT SUMMARY: ELVIS From his rise to fame to his unprecedented superstardom, rock 'n' roll icon Elvis Presley maintains a complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker, over the course of 20 years. Central to Presley's journey and happiness is one of the most influential people in his life -- Priscilla. THE BLACK PHONE Finney Shaw is a shy but clever 13-year-old boy who's being held in a soundproof basement by a sadistic, masked killer. When a disconnected phone on the wall starts to ring, he soon discovers that he can hear the voices of the murderer's previous victims -- and they are dead set on making sure that what happened to them doesn't happen to Finney.
