Friday's Short Music Stories

Just over a month since the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club BandThe Hollywood Reporter has reported that the same anniversary of The Beatles' Yellow Submarine will be marked with a new comic book adaption and a line of collectibles. Mad magazine editor Bill Morrison is running the project, one that he was originally commissioned to work on nearly 20 years ago. In 1999 he was hired to adapt Yellow Submarine and had completed some of the work before Apple changed their plans. 

Cheap Trick are set to release a Christmas album in the final quarter of this year. In an interview with Orange Amps, bass guitar player Tom Petersson revealed that the band finished a holiday themed LP recently that should be released "around Halloween." The band have already released two albums in the last two years - We're All Alright in June of this year and Bang, Zoom, Crazy... Hello last year. Petersson said, "we've got a few originals, and we covered songs from artists that we really like which have done Christmas songs we think's really cool."

Earlier this month, American punk-rock band Green Day played to 65,000 people at London's Hyde Park. Now, footage has been released of the audience singing along to the entirety of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody prior to Green Day beginning their set. Check it out the spine-tingling moment below!
