MUSIC NEWS: TUESDAY, MAY 23, 2017 ARIANA GRANDE-CONCERT BLAST At least 22 people have been killed and dozens of others injured at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England. Officials say thousands of young music fans were at the Manchester Arena when an explosion went off as the show was letting out. Grande was not injured, but tweeted how she felt: ``Broken. From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don't have words.'' There was panic after the explosion. Police cars, bomb-disposal units and some 60 ambulances raced to the scene as the scale of the carnage became clear. Many parents spent the night searching for children who hadn't turned up after the show. And groups of friends separated by the blast sought to find one another. Police say they are treating the blast as a terrorist act. --- QUEEN'S BRIAN MAY SAYS FREDDIE MERCURY WAS…

MUSIC NEWS: THURSDAY, MAY 11, 2017 BEATLES - BBC - ``A DAY IN THE LIFE'' Not everyone was crazy about the ``Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'' album when it came out in 1967. The Beatles have posted online the letter they got from the B-B-C banning ``A Day In The Life.'' Frank Gillard, the director of B-B-C's sound broadcasting, wrote to them in May 1967 that his team had determined ``the words 'I'd love to turn you on,' followed by that mounting montage of sound, could have a rather sinister meaning.'' He wrote that the song may have been ``made in innocence and good faith,'' but the phrase ``turned on'' is ``currently much in vogue in the jargon of drug-addicts.'' The 50th anniversary of the release of ``Sgt. Pepper'' is in June. --- ROBERT MILES - OBIT The European D-J who had a 1996 dance hit with the song…

MUSIC NEWS: TUESDAY, MAY 9, 2017 ZAC BROWN BAND GETS MISTY ON ``MY OLD MAN'' If Zac Brown is not careful, he will make himself cry with his own words. Brown says if he's thinking about his dad and his son while singing the band's new song, ``My Old Man,'' ''it's over.`` He says he'll end up making that noise guys make when they're trying to be all macho and holding in their emotions.
