Photographs by the late Jeff Rusnak (died 2006) are now on display, including this of Elvis from 1981.

'How a New Jersey record store clerk's 150,000 photos ended up in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside the titans he captured.'

Sheva on Facebook commented - This was taken at the Tower Theater during one of the two English Mugs shows - January 29 and 30 1981.

Elvis & Tony Bennett in Central Park - https://www.instagram.com/p/BpZpKgcARBu ... dianakrall

Also, I went to Elton's farewell show at MSG last Fri, and was wondering whether EC & DK might have been there (Elton talked at length about what a thrill it was to have Aretha record Border Song... and then he went and dedicated it to Diana) - looks from her IG like that's a yes!

A great player, pal of my father and generous correspondent to a young football fan, who would always sign his letters, “Yours through sport”. My condolences to his family. Declan

I saw Elvis, and Diana, in Liverpool at this evening's Paul McCartney concert. Looked liked they were having a good time.

Gig review: All you need is Loverpool at Paul McCartney home gig


Paul McCartney
Echo Arena, Liverpool ★★★★✩

PAUL McCARTNEY’S homecoming Christmas show sold out in minutes, so it was no surprise to find the audience humming with anticipation for this local boy.

When he arrived, the band launched straight into A Hard Day’s Night and so began a mammoth three-hour journey through his career. His five-piece band were heavy and loud with buzzing guitars that resembled 1980s hard rock to begin with. A powerful brass section appeared and elevated the band to new levels.

The tone and texture shifted further as McCartney began to play piano and the show gained new momentum. There were songs from his latest album, Egypt Station, but McCartney constantly (and wisely) dipped back into the hits.

The second half was stuffed with them: a tender, stripped-back Eleanor Rigby, a punchy Love Me Do, a solo acoustic Blackbird, Wings’ Band On The Run and a gorgeous tribute to George Harrison via Something.

At 76, his voice is still in great shape and he was able to shriek frenziedly and capture more intimate moments.

The stage set was simple until Live And Let Die, which exploded to life with flames and fireworks. Elvis Costello sang along with everyone on Hey Jude, while a rousing Helter Skelter was in the encore. McCartney left to rapturous applause. When he returned to declare Liverpool ‘the greatest city in the world’, the noise hit record levels. The local boy is always welcome home here.
Since you put me down, it seems i've been very gloomy. You may laugh but pretty girls look right through me.

Peter on Facebook takes the words out of my mouth -

The new feelm “Bumblebee,” set in 1987, features a plucky heroine who sports a vintage PTC shirt throughout a major scene. It generally appropriates 80s music a la “Guardians of the Galaxy” and the 70s. All good holiday blockbuster fun...
