    Beatles help India traffic campaign

    The police has put up 40 hoardings carrying the Beatles' photo
    Police in the eastern Indian city of Calcutta are using the picture on the cover of the iconic Beatles album Abbey Road in a campaign to enforce road safety.
    The picture shows the band members walking in single file on a zebra crossing in north London's Abbey Road.
    The slogan for the campaign reads: "If they can, why can't you?"
    The Beatles were photographed on Abbey Road in Ian Macmillan's famous cover shot for the 1969 album.
    The crossing is outside the Abbey Road studios, where the band recorded much of their music.
    Calcutta's traffic police has put up 40 hoardings carrying the Beatles image as part of a campaign to persuade people to use pedestrian crossings.
    "We wanted a catchy and appealing campaign, and we hit upon the idea of using the Beatles and cash in on their universal popularity. We are trying to say that if John, Paul, George and Ringo could use the zebra crossing, you can also do it," joint commissioner of traffic police Supratim Sarkar told the BBC.
    "We will be able to tell after a couple of months whether the campaign worked."
    Calcutta resident and musician Neel Dutt told The Telegraph newspaper that he was happy with the campaign.
    "Calcutta has had a long love affair with The Beatles and if that can make people abide by rules, then nothing like it," he said.
    Others were more sceptical.
    "Don't waste time and money putting up these hoardings that may be understood only by elite 2% of the people, and that too not those who tend to walk on the streets too much," resident Sanjiv Kapoor wrote on Calcutta traffic police's Facebook page.
    "Instead spend the money on making zebra crossings at the right places, and educating drivers and ordinary pedestrians on what they are for! If people today actually use them as shown in the photo, they will be run over before you know it!"
    The original Abbey Road zebra crossing, where the photograph was taken, was moved several metres for traffic management reasons more than 30 years ago, and no original features remain.

    Music UK

    Morrissey, a vegetarian since his childhood, recorded Meat is Murder in 1985 with the Smiths
    Food vendors at the Staples Center in Los Angeles will be going 100% vegetarian at Morrissey's forthcoming sold-out show on 1 March.
    It will mark the first time stalls within and around the venue are not selling any meat products.
    The singer and animal activist said: "I don't look upon it as a victory for me, but a victory for the animals."
    The venue and promoter Goldenvoice will also donate a portion of the ticket sales to the UK-branch of charity Peta.
    The decision came after the former Smiths singer urged the venue to close down their McDonald's outlets and to banish the sale of "flesh as food".
    The 53-year-old star recently postponed a string of concerts due to a bleeding ulcer.
    He resumes his US tour on 26 February with a performance on Live with Jimmy Kimmel.
    It is not the first time Morrissey has asked venues hosting his gigs to take meat off the menu.
    The animal rights activist walked off stage at the Coachella festival in California in 2009 after saying he could smell "burning flesh".

    Beatles 'mentor' Tony Sheridan dies

    Sheridan played at the 50th anniversary of the legendary Hamburg Star club last year
    Ringo Starr has paid tribute to Tony Sheridan, an early supporter of The Beatles, who has died aged 72.
    During their early days as the Silver Beatles in Hamburg in the 1960s, they performed as Sheridan's backing band.
    Starr wrote on his Twitter: "Goodbye to Tony Sheridan... I had a great month 1960-61, playing with him was great."
    Described as a catalyst in the Beatles' rise to fame, they played on Sheridan's recording of My Bonnie.
    After being spotted by producer Bert Kaempfert, it was their first studio session for Polydor as The Beat Brothers in June 1961.
    Later that year, teenage fan Raymond Jones requested the song in Brian Epstein's record store. Epstein promised to order it and later became the Beatles' manager, whom many still regard as the "fifth Beatle".
    Returning to Germany in 1961, the young Beatles and Sheridan continued their collaboration and - at Kaempfert's instigation - recorded seven tracks.
    This year marks the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' debut album Please, Please Me
    A 1962 show at the Star Club in Hamburg, where the Liverpool band played many of their early shows, was a watershed performance - featuring Starr on drums - and helped catapult the Beatles to fame.
    According to reports in the German media, Sheridan died on Saturday 16 February following a long illness.
    Sir Paul McCartney has issued a statement on his website. He said: "Tony was a good guy who we knew and worked with from the early days in Hamburg. We regularly watched his late night performances and admired his style. He will be missed."
    In the early 1960s, the singer-songwriter toured with rock 'n roll pioneers Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran.
    He had German Top 10 singles Let's Slop and Skinny Minnie and with the Fab Four's early commercial success, My Bonnie charted in both Britain and the US.
    During his later years, Sheridan lived with his third wife, Anna Sievers, in a farm house in the north of Germany. She died of cancer in 2011.

    Springsteen to play new Leeds Arena



    Bruce Springsteen specially requested to play a gig at the new Leeds venue, the city council said
    Rock star Bruce Springsteen is to "road test" the new Leeds Arena in July ahead of its official opening in September, Leeds City Council has revealed.

    Springsteen made a "special request" to try out the 13,500-seat arena in a one-off show as part of his Wrecking Ball world tour, the council said.

    The gig will take place at the new 60m city centre venue on Wednesday 24 July.
    Springsteen's request to play the Arena was "unexpected but very welcome", said council leader Keith Wakefield.
    'Sheer calibre'Springsteen, famous for hits such as Born To Run and Born in the USA, will be joined by his E Street band for the Leeds gig, the council confirmed.

    Country singer Mindy McCready dies



    Mindy McCready performing I'm Still Here in 2010

    US country singer Mindy McCready has died in a suspected suicide, according to police.
    The 37-year-old died from an "apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound", Arkansas sheriff Marty Moss said.
    Her death comes weeks after that of her boyfriend and father of one of her two sons, record producer David Wilson, whose death is being investigated.

    The singer had attempted to take her own life twice before and was known to have problems with substance abuse.
    The Cleburne County Sheriff's Office said McCready's body would be taken to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for an autopsy, adding that "the matter will be fully investigated."
    She recorded five studio albums, and scored 12 hits on the US country music charts, including Ten Thousand Angels and Guys Do It All The Time.

    Her sole UK chart appearance came in 1998, when Oh Romeo reached number 41.
    Her fifth album, I'm Still Here, was released in 2010.
    'Touched my soul'Police said they had been called to the singer's house after reports of gunshots on Sunday afternoon.

    They found the body of Malinda Gayle McCready on the front porch. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
    TMZ reported she had shot her dog before turning the gun on herself.
    After the death of her partner in January, McCready had told NBC's Dateline programme that she had "never gone through anything this painful.

    "He didn't just touch my heart, he touched my soul."
    She denied any involvement in Wilson's death.
    Tributes have flooded in for the singer, with Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks saying: "Too much tragedy to overcome. RIP Mindy McCready."

    Fellow country singer Carrie Underwood added: "I grew up listening to Mindy McCready... So sad for her family tonight. Many prayers are going out to them."

    Drummer's flying fear disrupts tour



    By Steve Holden Newsbeat reporter


    Blink-182's Travis Barker has announced he's skipping the band's tour in Australia due to his fear of flying.
    The drummer says he's still suffering from the effects of a plane crash in 2008 which killed four people.
    Barker was one of two survivors when a private plane burst into flames during an aborted take-off.
    Writing on his Facebook page, he said: "I still haven't gotten over the horrific events that took place the last time I flew."

    The crash killed two of his friends and he spent several months in hospital with injuries.
    Fear of flyingIn a statement, all three members of Blink-182 said: "The band knew the chances of Travis overcoming his fear of flying, which was magnified after the horrible plane crash in 2008, would be a challenge, but we wanted to play for our fans in Australia nonetheless.

    "The three of us tried all measures to get us all there in full form."
    Barker will be replaced on the tour by Brooks Wackerman from Bad Religion and Tenacious D.
    Previously, Mark Hoppus had spoken about how the band juggle their international tour commitments with Barker's fear of planes.

    He said: "For Travis to get over here [the UK] he takes a bus from Los Angeles to New York gets on a boat then gets on a bus and travels like that."

    Richard Clayderman - La Mer (Beyond The Sea)

    ''Somewhere beyond the sea,
    Somewhere waiting for me,
    My lover stands on golden sands
    And watches the ships that go sailing.

    Somewhere beyond the sea
    She's there watching for me.
    If I could fly like birds on high
    Then straight to her arms I'd go sailing.''
    Richard Clayderman
