Sights and Sounds: World Party, Jack White, Phil Collins, The Who, Joan Baez, Jerry Lee Lewis

Hope everybody had a good weekend! Lots of news to share for a Monday...

I sadly wasn't able to catch World Party this weekend. My pal George A. Paul did and you can read his full report on Music Minded here.

During a Glastonbury performance of the White Stripes tune "Cannon," Jack White included a good chunk of Metallica's "Enter Sandman." You can watch it courtesy of Spin here.

Is it really possible? Is Phil Collins considering coming out of retirement? Stereogum has the latest here.

The Who are set to celebrate their 50th anniversary with another tour. NME has the scoop.
Joan Baez

Joan Baez is coming to the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles this week. The Orange County Register has an insightful preview on the legendary folk singer you can read here.

Finally, legendary rocker Jerry Lee Lewis is set to release a new album aptly titled Rock & Roll Time on Oct. 28, 2014. The collection will feature a mix of newly-recorded classics and will find Lewis joined by the celebrated likes of Keith Richards, Neil Young, Ron Wood, Robbie Robertson and Nils Lofgren

Currently, Lewis has two upcoming concert dates scheduled: on July 5, 2014 he will be performing at Harrah's Resort in Valley Center, CA and on Oct. 30, at B.B. King's Blues Club and Grill in New York. Visit for all the details.
