Rolling Stones News:  ‘Tokyo Dome (Live 1990)’ released,  Author of ‘Mick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger’ talks affairs in radio interview

Twenty-two years after the tour, the Rolling Stones have released the fourth installment of their exclusive digital 'live bootleg' releases, this one a live document of their 1990 stand at the Tokyo Dome. 'Tokyo Dome (Live 1990)' follows ‘'L.A. Forum (Live 1975),' 'Hampton Coliseum (Live 1981),' and 'Brussels Affair (Live 1973).' The 24 tracks are from their lengthy stay at the Korakuen Dome, which took place over most of Feb. 1990 and marked the Stones' first visit to Japan after years of being barred by the national government.

The Stones were in the midst of the Steel Wheels Tour on this release, which ended up marking the end of bassist Bill Wyman‘s long tenure with the band.

Beatles News: Watch new trailer for ‘Strange Fruit: The Beatles’ Apple Records,’ John & Paul’s childhood homes to be preserved as cultural landmarks

In a must see for Beatles fans, a documentary on their label Apple Records will be released on March 26th (April 24 in the U.S.) called 'Strange Fruit: The Beatles' Apple Records'. The Beatles set up Apple Records in 1968, with a goal of creating a unique and daring label that gave a wide range of new artists a chance to be heard.

James Taylor, Mary Hopkin, Badfinger and Billy Preston were some of the artists to appear on the label, but the Beatles also opened their doors to aspiring filmmakers, inventors, designers and more than a fair share of opportunists. Very little came in the way of these other endeavors, however, and before long, Apple Records was bleeding money. By 1970, it had become a platform for but a select group of acts and the by-then ex-Beatles to release product.

The documentary features new interviews with some of the Apple Records stable: Jackie Lomax, David Peel, label CEO Tony Bramwell and members from Badfinger and Elephant's Memory. There are also observations from musician and Beatles expert Chris Ingham, author and journalist Mark Paytress and Apple biographer Stefan Granados and archive footage of Apple artists and the organization for which they recorded as well as interviews from the vaults, location film, rare photographs and music. Looks to be an excellent film!

The homes in which The Beatles' John Lennon and Paul McCartney grew up in Liverpool, England, will be preserved as cultural landmarks, the UK's English Heritage organization announced Wednesday. The houses, where the revered musicians wrote and rehearsed dozens of songs for the Fab Four, were certified with Grade II listings -- meaning they can't be altered or torn down without special permission from local authorities.

McCartney's former residence at 20 Forthlin Road was where the singer/bassist lived from age 13 to 22. The address of the late Lennon's one-time home, which is known as Mendips, is 251 Menlove Avenue; he lived there from age 5 to 22. Both houses are managed by the UK's National Trust.

Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, said of the honor, "I am delighted to learn that English Heritage have classified Mendips as a Grade II listed building. Mendips always meant a great deal to John and it was where his childhood dreams came true for himself and for the world."

Other Beatles-related buildings and locales that have received Grade II listings include Liverpool's Casbah Club and London's Abbey Road Studios, as well as the crosswalk outside of the recording studio.
