Courtesy of KPM BerlinDavid Bowie was honored with a commemorative plaque Monday in his one-time home of Berlin, where the late rock legend resided during the late 1970s. According to The Guardian, the bone-china marker was unveiled in Schöneberg district of the German capital, at the site of the apartment Bowie shared with his friend and musical collaborator Iggy Pop from 1976 to 1978.
The porcelain plaque features Bowie's name, his birth and death dates, and explains in German that while he lived at the residence he worked on the albums Low, Heroes and Lodger, known as his "Berlin Trilogy." The marker also features a famous lyrical line from his song "Heroes": "We can be Heroes, just for one day."
Bowie moved to Berlin with the intention of dealing with a drug habit he'd developed while also living more anonymously. The music he created while in the city is considered some of his most experimental and inventive.
The Guardian reports Berlin Mayor Michael Müller was on hand to unveil the plaque, along with hundreds of people who attended the ceremony. Müller commented that Bowie played an important role in promoting Berlin's "sense of being a city of culture, creativity and openness," adding, "David Bowie belongs to Berlin, David Bowie belongs to us."
The German senate immediately signed off on the commemorative plaque, even though a five-year waiting period after a notable figure dies usually is required for such an honor to be approved. Bowie died January 10 of this year.

Carlos now has shared an update about the latter album's status.
"We just about finished it," he told ABC Radio. "[We recorded] 16 songs in four days, [and] I wish I could see your eyes and your face when you listen to the whole album. It's unbelievable."
Santana also revealed that among the other musicians who contributed to the album were lauded session keyboardist Greg Phillinganes; two current members of his group, including his wife, drummer Cindy Blackman; and guitarist Ernie Isley, Ronald's brother and fellow Isley Brothers band mate.
The project came about after Ronald Isley lent guest vocals to two songs on Santana IV, which was released this past April. Santana IV featured Carlos teaming up with former Santana singer/keyboardist Gregg Rolie, drummer Michael Shrieve, percussionist Michael Carabello and guitarist Neal Schon for the first time since the early 1970s.
While the musicians have only played a handful of special shows to promote the record so far, Carlos told ABC Radio that he "absolutely" expects to release more new music with his old band mates.
"There's a lot of music that we recorded that needs to be completed," he revealed. "And yes, we had a ball and we plan on definitely doing Santana Five, Six and Seven, hopefully."
First up for Carlos, however, will be a recently reported one-off performance this Wednesday at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles with his new jazz-fusion supergroup Mega Nova. The band also features jazz greats Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock, as well as Carlos' wife, Cindy.
Lester Cohen/WireImageOn Saturday, Joni Mitchell made her first public appearance since suffering a debilitating brain aneurysm in March of 2015. According to the 72-year-old singer/songwriter's official website, Mitchell attended a concert Saturday night by jazz great Chick Corea at Catalina Bar and Grill in Los Angeles.
A photo taken that evening of Mitchell with Corea, his wife and legendary jazz keyboardist Herbie Hancock was posted on Chick's official Facebook page. The pic shows a smiling Joni holding Hancock's hand, as Corea puts his arms around the two other musicians.
Mitchell was hospitalized in March 2015 after suffering an aneurysm and being discovered unconscious at her L.A. home. In June of last year, Joni's friend and conservator Leslie Morris reported that she was speaking and undergoing daily therapy and was expected to make a full recovery.
Bobby Bank/WireImageAfter rejoining The Monkees for their August 5 concert in Monterey, California, Michael Nesmith has announced he'll perform with the band at their September 16 show at the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles. The singer revealed the news in a message on his Facebook page, while also hinting that the L.A. appearance might be the final time he'll play with the group.
"Been talking to Micky [Dolenz] and Peter [Tork] about the Los Angeles Pantages Monkees concert and have agreed to come down to play that show with them," Nesmith writes. "I expect it will be fun, and a great way for me to sign out. I see the specter of the multiple [Frank] Sinatra retirement/farewells -- and this seems like the perfect time for me to step off, sit down and shut up."
Nesmith, who's sat out most of The Monkees' 50th anniversary tour to focus on writing a book, points out that while the group will be visiting other parts of the world after wrapping up the North American leg of the trek, he has other plans.
"I…will be starting my Infinite Tuesday book tour in the first quarter of 2017, as well as some solo concerts, and other projects that will make it not possible to be with them on that tour," he reports. "So this seemed like the right opportunity for me to get together with them as Monkees."
Nesmith also notes the L.A. concert takes place on almost the exact 50th anniversary of The Monkees TV series' premiere, which was September 12, 1966.
Mike finishes his note by declaring, "What a long strange trip it's been said [The Grateful Dead] -- and it looks like I've made it to the end."

Courtesy of The Bridge SchoolThe lineup has been revealed for the 2016 edition of Neil Young's annual Bridge School Benefit Concert, which will include headlining performances by ex-Pink Floyd singer/bassist Roger Waters and Metallica, along with Young and his current backing group, Promise of the Real.

Guy Prives/RedfernsIf you're not a fan of either of the major party's candidate for president, perhaps you'd consider casting your vote for a genuine shock rocker. Alice Cooper recently -- and perhaps jokingly -- threw his top hat in the ring and launched his own campaign for U.S. president, complete with a special website and merchandise promoting his candidacy.
Billing himself as "A Troubled Man for Troubled Times," Cooper says he's running as The Wild Party's candidate, and has laid out a platform of important goals he hopes to achieve as Leader of the Free World. These include: Getting Brian Johnson back in AC/DC; a snake in every pot; no more pencils, no more books; adding late Motorhead frontman Lemmy to Mount Rushmore; putting Groucho Marx on the $50 bill; banning talking during movies in theater; and banning taking selfies, except on a designated National Selfie Day.
You can check out his full platform at AliceforPresident.com, where you also can buy merch packages that include an "Alice for President" poster, bumper sticker, button and phony billion dollar bill.
In conjunction with his campaign, Cooper has rereleased his 1972 hit "Elected" as a special digital single. The 68-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer also is showcasing the song on his current headlining tour. During his performances of the tune, Alice dons a modified Uncle Sam outfit while people dressed as macabre versions of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump come out on stage and proceed to have a no-holds-barred battle before ultimately making out with each other. Watch a recent example of one such performance at Cooper's official YouTube channel.
Cooper's current North American tour continues on Tuesday, August 23, in Houston and is mapped out through an October 30 show in Los Angeles.
Dolly Records/RCA NashvilleDolly Parton's publicist recently joked that even though the country legend's latest album is called Pure & Simple, it's actually anything but that! While the title refers both to a new song and to the collection's sparse arrangements, when it comes to the ways you can take it home, there are actually quite a few. Parton's 43rd studio effort is available in three different versions in the U.S., with at least one more option internationally.
In addition to the standard single-disc of Pure & Simple, both Walmart and Cracker Barrel can boast exclusive editions with songs not available anywhere else.
For Walmart, Parton added the tunes "Mama" and "Lovin' You," as well as a second disc titled Dolly’s Biggest Hits, which includes her take on The Beatles' "Help!" as well as the gospel classic "How Great Thou Art."
On the Cracker Barrel exclusive, you can hear Dolly sing her hits "Jolene" and "9 to 5" live, from her triumphant 2014 gig at the U.K.'s Glastonbury Festival. International editions add even more tunes from the memorable set.
Neil Lupin/RedfernsPills that investigators seized from Prince's Paisley Park compound that were labeled as hydrocodone contained the powerful opioid fentanyl, a source familiar with the investigation told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
It was fentanyl that killed Prince, according to autopsy results. He did not have a prescription for the drug, the source said.
Investigators do not know at this point how Prince ingested the fentanyl. However, they believe he may have taken the pills marked as hydrocodone not knowing they contained fentanyl, according to the Star Tribune.
Prince weighed only 112 pounds when he died, but he had so much fentanyl in his system that no one would have survived, the source revealed.
Sources with knowledge of the investigation have told the newspaper that autopsy results also revealed the presence of the anesthetic lidocaine, alprazolam – more commonly known as the sedative Xanax -- and the painkiller Percocet.
Prince was found dead at his Paisley Park compound April 21. He was 57.
Credit: Mark OwensMoody Blues singer/bassist John Lodge is preparing to launch a month-long solo tour of his home country, the U.K., to support his 2015 album, 10,000 Light Years Ago. In advance of the trek, Lodge has released a special single on CD and vinyl that features acoustic versions of the 1972 Moodies hit "Isn't Life Strange" and his song "Simply Magic" from his solo effort.
Lodge tells ABC Radio that he initially made the acoustic recordings as a way to test out how he might present the songs in a live context.
"I went in the studio and recorded 'Isn't Life Strange' and 'Simply Magic'… with just acoustic guitar, flute and cello," he explains. "I wanted to see the results…and I'm really excited."
A limited number of signed copies of the single are available for purchase at Lodge's PledgeMusic page, and he presumably also will be selling the discs at his upcoming U.K. trek, which gets underway September 3 in Stockton-on-Tees and runs through a September 30 concert in Birmingham.
After the solo outing, John will rejoin The Moody Blues for a series of fall U.S. dates, but he tells ABC Radio that eventually he'd also like to mount a solo tour of the States to promote 10,000 Light Years Ago.
"If everything goes well, I hope to bring it to the United States next year," he says. "Because I want to perform these songs off…It's important to me to be able to do that."
Meanwhile, in a new video posted on his official Facebook page, Lodge reveals that besides 10,000 Light Years Ago material, his U.K. shows will feature performances of Moody Blues songs and some tunes from Blue Jays, his 1975 collaborative album with his Moodies band mate Justin Hayward.
Kevin Mazur/WireImageA North Carolina couple bought what they believe is an autographed Michael JacksonBad cassette tape for 25 cents at a local thrift shop.
Amber and MichaelHernon, of Concord, were stunned when they spotted what they think is the singer’s signature inside the cover.
"At first when I opened it, I couldn't say anything. Just went blank,” Amber told ABC News of their discovery at Heavenly Treasures, a consignment shop they frequent. “Then I told Michael it was signed, and gauging my reaction, he knew I was serious.”
They first noticed the autograph after opening up the cassette’s cover to show pictures of Jackson’s dance moves to Amber’s 10-year-old son, who is a huge fan.
Although the signature looks identical to the King of Pop’s based on what they’ve seen on the Internet, the couple doesn’t “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’," so they’d get it authenticated if they ever plan to sell -- which isn't likely.
"If we were going to sell it, we would get the proof that it's real," Amber explained. "We have no intentions of selling it. We just think it's a great story for our children and future grandchildren."

Gustavo Caballero/Getty ImagesAfter several years of retirement, Phil Collins is slowly making his way back into the spotlight -- he'll perform later this month at the kickoff of the U.S. Open tennis tournament, for example. But the former Genesis frontman will be shining a light on his personal life this October, when he releases his autobiography.
Phil tells The New York Times that the book, titled Not Dead Yet, will detail his three failed marriages, as well as the drinking problem he developed after he split with his third wife and retired. "I was left with this huge void. I didn't want to work because I wanted to be with the kids, but the kids weren’t there anymore," Phil tells the Times.
"You start drinking, and then you start drinking too much. Then it physically hurts you," he adds. "I came very close to dying at that point. I’m being honest about that."
Phil's also honest about the physical ailments that have kept him from making music the past few years. His right foot is numb as a result of back surgery, and his left hand is affected by nerve problems that keep him from playing the drums. However, he's determined to make new music.
"I've got a little studio...and at some point, I will turn it on and start fooling around," he tells The Times. "That day is getting closer. I think about it a lot -- I've got a lot of lyrical ideas, but I keep putting it off."
In his absence, Phil's solo work has been reissued, and is now being critically re-evaluated. Formerly a "whipping boy for the '80s," as he puts it, the singer says it's "fantastic" that after the reissues came out, "people were able to say, 'I re-looked at this, and it's better than I thought.'”
Courtesy of OWN: Oprah Winfrey NetworkSammy Hagar discusses the status of his notoriously contentious relationship with former Van Halen band mate Eddie Van Halen on the next episode of the OWN series Oprah: Where Are They Now?, which premieres tonight at 10 p.m. ET./9 p.m. CT.
The Red Rocker, who parted ways with Van Halen after a volatile 2004 reunion trek, says he's no longer is holding on to bad feelings about his time the famous hard-rock group and now "just want(s) to be friends."
"The whole Van Halen issue, I've really put that behind me and I'm proud of what we did," Hagar says in a preview clip of the show. "I've decided, forgive and forget. I ain't looking for nothing from nobody."
He also maintains that he isn't interested in getting back in the band. "That's work. No, no, no, I don't want to do that," he declares. "I just want to be friends. I want to say I'm sorry of anything I said bad about you."
Hagar kicks off a run of late-summer dates with his current group The Circle on Wednesday, August 24, in Tulalip, Washington. The band features Sammy's good friend and founding Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony, one-time Led Zeppelin drummer Jason Bonham and guitarist Vic Johnson of Hagar's longtime backing group The Wabos. Hagar also will be playing with The Circle at the 2016 edition of his annual birthday bash, scheduled for October 7, 9, 11 and 13 at his Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
