America met the Beatles for the first time on February 7th, 1964, and from that day on, the music world and my life were never quite the same.

Lou Reed – rocker, songwriter, singer, guitarist, poet, artist, New Yorker. The world lost a unique visionary this past Sunday. Artists like Lou Reed do not come around all that often.

Showcasing the incredible range of the band, "Million Miles" is a perfect counterpart to "Mercy" — burning slow and sexy, with undertones of heartbreak and longing.

Ahead of the release of their new album, Magpie and the Dandelion — due out in October — The Avett Brothers have released a new song. "Another Is Waiting" is a short song that gets right to the point in typical Avett Brothers fashion, with banjo, guitars and drums. On this track, Seth Avett sings about a person he sees headed down the wrong path.
