In the interview - both parties expressed their admiration for each other:
Armstrong lets Eilish know how much he appreciates her music for being “earnest” and sounding like “freedom”.
“I know this sounds [weird], but I always gravitate toward music that sounds like freedom. And that’s what I get from your music. It’s like an earnest person that’s expressing themselves and incorporating new sounds. Some of it sounds like jazz to me, if that’s cool to say ... The lyrics are also just very real. That’s important when you’re surrounded by things that sound synthetic and not very real.”
While Eilish's admiration showed a bit of the generation gap - LOL
EILISH I can’t believe I’m in the room with the guy who was my wallpaper.

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, have released a cover of one of the final songs written by their late Beatles band mate John Lennon - “Grow Old with Me”.
The song was written prior to Lennon's death in 1980 and released posthumously on 1984’s Milk and Honey.
The idea for the cover was conceived in the 90s and the two have finally gotten around to releasing the song.
Their version of “Grow Old With Me” (which you can hear below) features Ringo Starr on drums and vocals, Paul McCartney on bass and backing vocals, and The Eagles’ Joe Walsh on guitar - and is one of the tracks on Starr’s new solo album, What’s My Name, out now
Starr explained the song’s sentimental meaning:
“I’m an emotional person. And I just loved this song. I sang it the best that I could. I do well up when I think of John this deeply. And I’ve done my best. We’ve done our best. The other good thing is that I really wanted Paul to play on it, and he said yes. Paul came over and he played bass and sings a little bit on this with me. So John’s on it in a way. I’m on it and Paul’s on it. It’s not a publicity stunt. This is just what I wanted. And the strings that Jack arranged for this track, if you really listen, they do one line from ‘Here Comes the Sun’. So in a way, it’s the four of us.”
Cage The Elephant have debuted an interactive music video for “Social Cues,” - the bands latest #1 song - making them the #1 alternative band of the 2010s.
The video features the band performing at Adult Swim’s FishCenter Live in Atlanta, GA, and had additional direction from singer Matt Shultz.
The video for their latest single also provides the phone number 615-235-5440 and encourages fans to text the band directly, who will be responding to questions and elaborating on the themes of their album, Social Cues.
The Jimmy Kimmel Show's annual east coast run is coming to the end - and has seen some epic performances by local artists - including Bruce Springsteen and David Byrne - but last night's performance by The National was quite compelling by The National standards.
The band was joined by three singers — Eve Owen, Mina Tindle, and This Is The Kit’s Kate Stables — who all guest on the new album (Stables also toured with the band this past summer and her band opened for The National on their Grammy-winning 2017 LP, Sleep Well Beast tour).
Watch the performance at the Brooklyn Academy of Music below.
We now have more visual brilliance to go along with the three tracks we have heard from Hyperspace - Beck's 14th studio album due out November 22nd.
For the album's second single, “Uneventful Days” , musician/director Dev Hynes of Blood Orange has provided the visualization.
The video features Evan Rachel Wood, Tessa Thompson and Alia Shawkat and Beck fans with attention to detail will spot the principals’ wardrobe nods to classic entries in the Beck video canon. The intro of the video has audio from the album's title track - Hyperlife.
And today - the band made the big reveal - releasing the track 'Blind Leading the Blind' - which you can hear below.
According to the band - the song is one they’ve been “working on, re-shaping, re-writing and generally re-imagining over the last 18 months”.
Lead singer Marcus Mumford adds -
“’Blind Leading The Blind’ has been a song we’ve had up our sleeves for some time, which ended up being a catalytic song for much of our work on ‘Delta’, its themes and feelings, but that we never got round to finishing in time to put it on the original release”
The band also says this isn't done ... they are planning to release further new music in spring 2020!
Home Alone star and Pizza Underground front man Macaulay Culkin has been MIA as of late ... but made an appearance this week at a Lizzo show in LA at the Hollywood Palladium.
Not only did he enjoy the amazing live show put on by 2019's biggest star - he joined her onstage for “Gigolo Game” - when Lizzo and her fellow performers trade off dance moves for the others to mimic (the two have been friends since 2014 when he appeared in the singer’s video for “Faded”)
When it was Culkin’s turn to bust a move - he went with something between “the sprinkler” and “the shoot.”
Lizzo replied “Make some noise for Macaulay Culkin everybody! Love you, baby” and gave him a hug before he left the stage
Culkin posted the video on IG - saying “When @lizzobeeating asks you to do a silly dance… You get up there and do a silly dance.”

The scene in Lebanon has been tense the past few days - with intense protesting over a crumbling economy. But for a moment in time - things were calm - as a group of protesters took the time to calm a scared toddler down by breaking into song ... and their choice, Baby Shark of course.
The boy's mother was driving with her 15 month old son in the passenger seat when her car was surrounded by a group of protesters who began cheering loudly.
She pleaded with them 'I have a baby, don't be too loud' ... so instead of quieting down - they decided to make the boy a little more comfortable (can't really tell if it worked by the look on his face) by singing the international toddler anthem - Baby Shark!
Shakira, along with Jenny from the Block aka J-Lo aka Jennifer Lopez will be the featured entertainment for the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime Show .. and if you have watched the game before - you know surprise guests are quite common ... and Shakira recently posted a candid video of her rehersals ... where she is covering Green Day's 1994 classic “Basket Case” ...
Could this be a clue that the Hips Don't Lie singer will be bringing Green Day out during her performance? Or just her being goofy in the studio ... time will tell!
No matter the case - apparenly Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong approves - by reposting the video to his Instagram
As is common for her set - she planned to end her set with an acoustic version of the song 'Alaska' ... prefacing it with a monologue that she has claimed is the 'most powerful part of her set'
But her words of “gratitude and growth and change” were interrupted by two jackholes, who thought it would be cool to shout “take your top off” followed by “you cute though.”
Maggie Rogers took to social media to address the situation, saying these men violated the “safe space” she creates in her concerts ... followed by "There is no space for harassment or disrespect or degradation of any kind at my show"
Fans have taken to social media in force - showing support for the Easton, MD native:
infuriating. you deserve better than that. i’m sorry.
At last weekend's Hammer Museum’s annual ‘Gala in the Garden’ in LA - Beck was joined by a number of musicians as he performed the 1994 Mellow Gold hit Loser - including Coldplay's Chris Martin.
The Hollywood Reporter's Chris Gardner was at the event and captured it on video ... In the clips - Martin remains seated on the stage, along with a group of musicians who play the sitar and the tabla - as Beck energetically sings his 1994 classic, encouraging the crowd of celebrities and notable guests to sing along.
For final song of night, @beck and a seated Chris Martin (with five also sitting musicians) collab on Beck’s 1994 “Loser,” and lyric I really heard was “forces of evil in a bozo nightmare.” #HammerGalapic.twitter.com/GsjeGNuJUb
The song - has a much different sound than junkyard-blues hip-hop of Saw Lightning.
Beck - Uneventful Days (Audio)
At a listening event last month, Beck described the new album as:
“not really anything about outer space. It’s more of an interior space… The meditation of the record is finding peace in moment. I was thinking about music as a kind of escape… It sort of alters the room, alters a state of mind… every song does something different – it can be an escape from the moment.”
What started as a tweet turned into a movement ... and after gaining popularity - the band obliged - and recorded a cover of the song ... made a video for it, with Weird Al Yankovic ... and the song went on to be the band's first number-one hit on Billboard 's Alternative Songs chart in 10 years, and their first entry on the Hot 100 in nine years, and the cover went on to sell 500,000 copies - making it a certified gold record by the RIAA.

To thank Mary Weezer sent her a personalized gold record plaque — in the shape of Africa, of course

Most 2 year old's birthday parties have a clown or a face painter ... Washington DC's The Anthem turned things up a notch - hosting the Let It Rock Tour with The Black Keys and Modest Mouse over for their second anniversary.
After announcing in 2016 that they planned to open a concert space in what has been dubbed ' Baltimore’s casino entertainment district' aka the gritty and dilapidated area between the Horseshoe Casino and M&T Bank Stadium - the casino owners have announced plans to break ground on The Paramount Baltimore.
The new 4000 seat venue will be at 1300 Warner Street:
Matt Herbert, Design Collective, the firm tasked with designing the building said:
The auction contains over 700 historical artifacts and memorabilia owned and used by some of the world's most important and influential music artists - including one of Kurt Cobain's custom Fender Mustang guitars, a motorcycle that belonged to Elvis Presley, and handwritten lyrics by Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton and Bruce Springsteen.
But the sweater expects to draw the largest bids - which includes a signed letter from Cobain family friend Jackie Farry, who’d obtained the sweater.
Can't make it in person to the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City for the auction? You can participate online at JuliensAuctions.com.

We give away tickets to a lot of concerts ... and we love hearing back from winners about how their 'experience' at the show was ... well - last night one of our winners had an EPIC night ...
It started off simple enough - Camille had won tickets to see The Head and the Heart at The Anthem from WRNR ... but what she didn't know was that the night would turn into an epic experience.
The night started with Camille and her boyfriend at The Anthem as planned - to see The Head and the Heart. They had booked a hotel room in the area - so they didn't need to drive back to Baltimore after the show.
But here's where Camille's night took a wild turn ... apparently soccer legend and DC United star Wayne Rooney is a big fan of The Head and the Heart, and was at the show.
The two hung out and after the show - Wayne invited Camille and her boyfriend to join him on a tour of The Anthem ... and after that - they all decided to get in a car and head across town to the 9:30 Club to catch Mt. Joy's late set
I mean - why not ... Wayne Rooney's heading back to England in a few weeks ... and how often do you get to roll VIP with an international sports legend!
Thanks for sharing your story with us Camille! Glad it worked out ... YOLO ... LOL ...
Sisters Natalie, Allison, and Meegan aka Joseph are back after a brief hiatus with an amazing new album, Good Luck, Kid. And inbetween sold out concerts and appearances on CBS This Morning - they came through Annapolis for an amazing lunchtime performance showcasing the new album!
