Ryan Gosling Patti Smith

Ryan Gosling has opened up about his 'unique experience' working alongside a variety of musicians on his latest film 'Song To Song', including the punk legend Patti Smith. Shot five years ago, much of the movie features scenes from actual live music festivals.

Song To SongRyan Gosling stars opposite Michael Fassbender in 'Song To Song'

Terrence Malick's music-based romantic drama was partly shot at Austin City Limits music festival in 2012, with a variety of musical guests making cameo appearances along the way. It was certainly a lot of fun for these actors to get to spend time with real rockstars.

Song To Song Trailer


The music scene of Austin, Texas becomes tainted by lust and illict desires as two aspiring songwriters named Faye (Rooney Mara) and BV (Ryan Gosling) become entwined in two overlapping love triangles with a major player in the music business named Cook (Michael Fassbender) - who encourages them to take their music careers further - and a charming waitress (Natalie Portman). As much as their lives are about making it in the industry and becoming world renowned successes, their lives get more complicated by disloyalty, temptation and infatuation with each other, pushing all of them ultimately further away. Can love last when betrayal lies at every corner?

Bob Dylan's Acceptance Speech Read At Nobel Prize Ceremony


Bob Dylan Patti Smith

A speech written by Bob Dylan was read by the United States Ambassador to Sweden, Azita Raji, at the Nobel Prize ceremony on Saturday night, after the singer was unable to attend.

Dylan, who was being honoured with the Nobel Prize for literature, missed the ceremony due to “pre-existing commitments”, but provided a lengthly speech where he said he never imagined he would one day receive the honour.

Patti Smith is set to honour Bob Dylan at the forthcoming Nobel Prize ceremony in Sweden by performing a cover of one of his famous songs. The folk artist isn't going to be attending the event himself, but Smith is determined to make it a super special occasion nonetheless.

The punk rock icon will play Dylan's 1963 song 'A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall', from his album 'The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan', at the Stockholm event on Saturday. She was initially asked back in September to perform live at the gala and planned to do one of her own songs alongside an orchestra, but decided to change tack when it was announced that Dylan had won the Nobel Literature Prize.

Patti Smith, Outside Society (Greatest Hits) Album Review


Outside Society presents a difficult challenge for Patti Smith. The so-called 'Godmother of Punk' has always relied on the album format as opposed to singles to forward her artistic vision. This newest Greatest Hits package cherry picks from each of her albums; from the stunning debut Horses to the uneven cover versions of 2007's Twelve. Admittedly there's not really a bad track here, but it's also not the most accurate representation of her career.

All We Are Saying Review


Weak
Here's an intriguing and potentially electrifying documentary concept: Rosanna Arquette gets the lowdown on life in the music biz by chatting with A-list rock stars, including Sting, Steven Tyler, Gwen Stefani, Tom Petty, Yoko Ono, Stevie Nicks, Thom Yorke, Elton John, Mr. and Mrs. Sonic Youth, and a dozen others from the '60s through the '90s. This is gonna be great, right?

Sadly, producer, director, and "experiencer" Arquette did exactly one thing well: the title. All We Are Saying is appropriately a dull, bloated gab marathon. And since she didn't clear the featured artists' music for the movie, it's all talk, no song, not even a few bars from a stage performance. Imagine The Aristocrats without the joke, stretched out over 105 minutes.
