Johnny Cash Documentary Brings Life of ‘American Rebel’ to TV

SOURCE: Rolling Stone

 

Airing on CMT in September, ‘Johnny Cash: American Rebel’ will span the icon’s 50-year career

 

The extraordinary life and unforgettable music of Johnny Cash will be explored in a brand-new documentary film. According to USA Today, CMT will premiere Johnny Cash: American Rebel on September 12th, coinciding with the 12th anniversary of the death of the Man in Black.

 

Cash’s nearly 50-year career will be explored through original interviews with family members John Carter Cash, Rosanne Cash and Carlene Carter, in addition to reflections from his contemporaries, including Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson. Others featured in the film include Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, John Mellencamp and Rodney Crowell.

 

Born in Kingsland, Arkansas, in 1932, Cash began his singing career while stationed in the Air Force in Germany. After being honorably discharged, he relocated to Memphis, where he would begin recording for Sun Records. In 1955, he first hit the country charts with “Cry! Cry! Cry” and would soon have a huge crossover hit with “I Walk the Line.”

 

More than 1,500 songs would follow, including “A Boy Named Sue,” “Sunday Morning Coming Down” and one of his last hits, “Hurt,” which was accompanied by a poignant, award-winning music video. Cash also hosted an eclectic variety series which aired on ABC from 1969 to 1971. An author, actor and humanitarian whose personal life was beset with addiction, Cash was also a deeply spiritual man who would find his soul mate in June Carter. He married the comedian-actress-musician in 1968 and would pass away just four months after her in September 2003 at 71 years old.

 

Johnny Cash: American Rebel premieres September 12th at 9:00 p.m. ET on CMT.

GHOST: Entire ‘Meliora’ Album Available For Streaming

“Meliora”, the third album from GHOST, can be streamed in its entirety below. Due on August 21 via Loma Vista Recordings, the follow-up to 2013′s “Infestissumam” was helmed by Klas Åhlund, a prolific songwriter, producer and guitarist who is also a member of the Swedish rock band TEDDYBEARS, and was mixed by Andy Wallace (SLAYER, NIRVANA, SEPULTURA, LINKIN PARK, GUNS N’ ROSES).

 

Click the link to listen: www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzzkemzfdfU

 

“Meliora” track listing:

 

01. Spirit
02. From The Pinnacle To The Pit
03. Cirice
04. Spöksonat
05. He Is
06. Mummy Dust
07. Majesty
08. Devil Church
09. Absolution

10. Deus In Absentia

 

GHOST’s June 3 warm-up show at at Doom in Linköping served as the group’s live debut with their “new” singer, Papa Emeritus III, the three-month-younger brother of GHOST’s previous frontman, Papa Emeritus II.

 

Asked if there is any kind of special audition process for picking a new Papa Emeritus, a nameless ghoul from GHOST told Music Radar: “Fortunately for us, we don’t have to do auditions where you put people through the paces. We just expect somebody to be on time, in tune and somewhat glad. Usually we don’t see much of our Papas — ’cause they’re hanging out with the mamas. [Laughs] They tend to appear as we go on stage and disappear just as quickly. We don’t socialize or fraternize that much, which is cool. I don’t know him very well, really. He’s very new to me.”

 

Regarding whether the fact that the various Papas are “emeritus’” means that they never really go away, the nameless ghoul said: “Well, that’s the ironic thing. ‘Emeritus’ in the tradition of popes means that you’re dead — you never get that title until after you’ve died. Benedictus was the first pope in something like 400 years who was named ‘emeritus’ while he’s still alive. He got to retire with that title. So our Papa Emerituses get to retire, but they’re still here.”

 

GHOST will embark on the “Black To The Future” North American headlining tour in the fall. The procession will begin at The Fillmore in Washington, D.C. on September 22.

RAMMSTEIN’s ‘In Amerika’ DVD, Blu-Ray Due In September; Complete Details Revealed


RAMMSTEIN made a triumphant return to the U.S. stage for the first time in 10 years, to headline one sold-out concert at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. The venue’s more than 18,000 seats were snatched up for the special appearance within less than 30 minutes of going on sale, heralding RAMMSTEIN’s return with a frenzied fanfare on par with the German band’s elaborate stage presentation. On September 25, Island/UMe will release “Rammstein In Amerika” in 2DVD and 2Blu-ray packages, pairing the incendiary Madison Square Garden concert, expertly filmed and recorded in 5.1 surround, with a feature-length documentary film directed by Hannes Rossacher. A 20-minute film about the making of RAMMSTEIN’s sixth album, “Liebe Ist Für Alle Da”, is also included.

 

The two-hour “Rammstein In Amerika” documentary throws open the band’s private archives spanning more than 20 years, including a trove of never-before-seen footage. Originated and personally overseen by RAMMSTEIN, the film is a fascinating chronological exploration of the band’s history, from the members’ shared experience of limited touring and other creative business opportunities behind the Iron Curtain in their native East Germany to bursting onto the world’s stage as metal/rock heroes after Germany’s reunification. The film follows RAMMSTEIN’s first forays into U.S. touring and American music business dealings in the 1990s, their work with David Lynch for the “Lost Highway” soundtrack, global radio and music television success, and international touring, which included the 1999 arrest of two of the band’s members in Massachusetts for elements of their stage presentation deemed by local police to be “lewd and lascivious behavior.”

 

The film also goes behind the scenes with RAMMSTEIN’s retreat from America in the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, before concluding with the band’s eventual return to perform in America on November 12, 2010 at Madison Square Garden. In addition to RAMMSTEIN’s Till Lindemann (vocals), Richard Z. Kruspe (guitar), Paul Landers (guitar), Oliver Riedel (bass), Flake Lorenz (keyboard), and Christoph Schneider (drums, percussion), several well-known American artists, including Iggy Pop, Chad Smith (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS), Moby, Melissa Auf der Maur, Marilyn Manson, Kiefer Sutherland, Steven Tyler (AEROSMITH), Jonathan Davis (KORN), CJ Ramone, Scott Ian (ANTHRAX), SLIPKNOT, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, KISS and Taylor Momsen, are among the documentary’s diverse and insightful participants.

 

Shot in high definition with 14 cameras and 5.1 surround audio, RAMMSTEIN’s “Live From Madison Square Garden” concert film shows the band in full creative stride as they command the stage for their roof-raising return to New York. RAMMSTEIN’s complete performance of 18 songs is captured in the film, clocking in for one hour and 41 minutes of visual and sonic annihilation. Also included is Paul Landers’s 20-minute “Making Of Liebe Ist Für Alle Da” documentary, which takes viewers into the studio during RAMMSTEIN’s November/December 2008 sessions for the band’s sixth album in Sonoma, California.

 

“Live From Madison Square Garden” track listing:

 

01. Rammlied
02. B********
03. Waidmanns Heil
04. Keine Lust
05. Weisses Fleisch
06. Feuer Frei!
07. Wiener Blut
08. Frühling In Paris
09. Ich Tu Dir Weh
10. Du Riechst So Gut
11. Benzin
12. Links 2 3 4
13. Du Hast
14. Pussy
15. Sonne
16. Haifisch
17. Ich Will
18. Engel

GHOST’s Nameless Ghoul: ‘Some People Would Like To Know Who We Are’

Kaaos TV conducted an interview with one of the nameless ghouls from Swedish occult rockers GHOST August 5 performance at the Ilosaarirock festival in Joensuu, Finland. 

 

Asked if he thinks people like the fact that the members of GHOST have managed to keep their real identities secret by wearing masks and hooded cassocks in all public appearances, the nameless ghoul said: “I think that people like the mystery, but I also think that some people would like to know who we are, and some people do, but they don’t talk about it, because maybe they wanna be in the secret little club that they’re part of, once they know. [I think it's] both: some people don’t wanna know, some people are dying to know… Not dying, but they’re curious, at least.”

 
GHOST’s third album, “Meliora”, will be released on August 21 via Loma Vista Recordings. The follow-up to 2013′s “Infestissumam” was helmed by Klas Åhlund, a prolific songwriter, producer and guitarist who is also a member of the Swedish rock band TEDDYBEARS, and was mixed by Andy Wallace (SLAYER, NIRVANA, SEPULTURA, LINKIN PARK, GUNS N’ ROSES).

 

GHOST’s June 3 warm-up show at at Doom in Linköping served as the group’s live debut with their “new” singer, Papa Emeritus III, the three-month-younger brother of GHOST’s previous frontman, Papa Emeritus II.
