$30 million raised, No Love for McCartney, and It's On The Soundtrack

The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station


$30 million raised


The numbers are in for the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy Benefit. And considering that tickets were somewhere in the range of $150 to $2,500, it’s no surprise they made bank! The six-hour long concert featuring a ton of diverse artists and collaborations brought in over $30 million. That’s just from ticket sales and does not including all of the pledges made from viewers who watched the show on TV networks around the world. Now they just have to be sure the money gets to where it needs to go and not pad the pockets of scamsters and fraudsters.

No Love for McCartney


At that benefit concert Wednesday Beatles star Paul McCartney welcomed on stage the surviving members of Nirvana. Everyone I’ve talked to thought it was a great performance. There’s one person who thought it wasn’t amusing. Who is that wench that doesn’t care too much for McCartney playing on stage with Nirvana in place of late front man Kurt Cobain? Courtney Love, of course! Apparently Love isn’t a fan of McCartney. She said that if John Lennon were still alive and filling in place of her dead husband that “would be cool.” Lennon’s dead, my dear.


It's on the soundtrack


By the way, that song that was played on stage by McCartney, Dave Grohl, Chris Novelcelic and Pat Smear, was actually recorded in Grohl’s home studio and will appear on the soundtrack of the forthcoming Sound City documentary directed by Grohl. The movie comes out February 1st and you can pre-purchase the film online at SoundCityMovie.com.
