    Midway through his Bonnaroo headlining set last night after a last-minute cancellation by Mumford & Sons, Jack Johnson announced he had written a song about the festival. Over a slow-rolling acoustic progression, he told the story of being on the way to Manchester, Tennessee to play a surprise late-night gig with friends Animal Liberation Orchestra when he received a call. "[They said] can you get a band together in two days?" Johnson sang, "I don’t know, it’s been a year or s...  | More »

    Paul McCartney may have played 24 Beatles classics and seven Wings gems in a whopping, two-and-a-half-hour set at Bonnaroo last night in Manchester, Tennessee, but that doesn't make him an oldies act. Seeing the 70-year-old Beatle, whose voice has hardly aged a day since Please Please Me, play universally loved, time-transcending staples like "Let It Be," "Eight Days a Week" and "Yesterday" – selections from inarguably the most influential song book in pop music history – in ...  | More »
