Jack Bruce, bassist from the 1960s band Cream, has died. He was 71. Bruce’s publicist confirmed the news on his official website .

“He died today at his home in Suffolk surrounded by his family.”

A statement from his family said: “It is with great sadness that we, Jack’s family, announce the passing of our beloved Jack: husband, father and granddad and all-round legend.

“The world of music will be a poorer place without him, but he lives on in his music and forever in our hearts.”

Considered one of the greatest rock trios of all time, Cream was formed by Bruce, guitarist Eric Clapton and drummer Ginger Baker in 1966. The band produced such hits as “Sunshine of Your Love,” “White Room,” “Crossroads” and “Strange Brew,” selling over 35 million albums in just over two years and were given the first ever platinum disc for Wheels of Fire.

The band members parted ways in 1968.

Bruce died of liver failure.

More details forthcoming. In the meantime, let’s revisit one of the most important musical gifts he gave us:

“South Park” Unveils Lorde’s True Identity

Published by EOTM News Editor on October 9th, 2014 - in Entertainment News, Music News, Pop Culture

(PitchFork) – Tonight’s episode of ”South Park” revealed something of a bombshell: Lorde isn’t actually a teenager from New Zealand. She’s Randy Marsh, the mustachioed South Park resident and father of Stan Marsh. Watch the episode below (via CoS).

Apparently, Mr. Marsh formed his elaborate alter ego when he decided that he wanted to use the women’s bathroom. While he was in there, he started writing his own songs, which he would then elaborately Auto-Tune to sound like, well, this.

The story arc started at the end of last week’s episode, when Randy takes the stage in a dress and sings “ya ya ya, I am Lorde ya ya ya”. This week, they confirm that he wasn’t just playing dress-up. “I am Lorde,” he says. Ridiculous stuff.

Lourdes Duque Baron’s “My Spring in Paris” Music Review

By Carla B.

She is woman, she is legend, this is her world and we just live in it: she is Lourdes Baron! The diva nonpareil has released the first single from her 2nd album, and we mere humans have been lucky enough to indulge in it.

Lourdes Duque Baron

If I had to elucidate My Spring in Paris I would compare it to a short story, a best selling novel. Interestingly, when it comes to the music I revel in, I want it to take on serious importance….assuming the stature of the highest literature. That being said, these ears here y’all — have been subjected to a lot of music, and please believe — there are not a lot of performers I can honestly say that can make music feel like literature on record.

Lourdes executes this perfectly.

The breakout crooner sells the hell out of this song and her vocal performance makes this one of the year’s best singles. Lourdes goes at full power and holds steady while lesser entities just kind of melt in the shadows. Her signature swagger is a force in itself.

The single is fantastic, a swirling classic anthem for lovers with a introspective tone showcasing her depth, not to mention a back story. Apparently, this hit was written by multi platinum producer Andrew Lane and artist Maya Tremblay, but never used until now.

In a nutshell, the moments round out and give a satisfying emotional depth to what turns out to be one of Lourdes’s most engaging ballads. Saying the singer is positively influencing music is an understatement. A fact that’s especially remarkable when you consider that the 67-year-old released her first album less than one year ago.

So you must be wondering: is My Spring in Paris worth the wait? I believe so! Ahem.

Little Bit of Country Singer, Taylor Swift goes a Lil Bit of Pop Sugar..? – VIDEO

The album – named after Swift’s birth year – will be in stores Oct. 27 and is available for “pre-buy” now at www.taylorswift.com.

Country singer Taylor Swifthas gone bonkers for POP music and it seems fans loves this bit of news as much as she does. The diva has skills and plans on creating a new type of star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Yes, friends and its all coming your way as her fifth installment, 1989, which debuts October 27th. The latest music is her very “first, official pop album,” according to the singer…. who gushed the news to a small crowd of her fans, which just happened to be — at the TOP of New York’s Empire State Building. How epic is that?

She said she discovered it was a time of “limitless potential and the idea that you can do what you want, be who you want, wear what you want and love who you want, and you get to decide where your life is going.”

The goal for leadoff single Shake It Off was to create a song that sounded like “nothing I had done.” Produced by Max Martin and Shellback (the team behind other enormous Swift hits I Knew You Were Trouble and We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together), the unabashedly poppy anthem is inspired by a lesson that Swift learned in the two years since her last album, 2012′s Red. “People can say whatever they want about us, at any time,” she said. “The only thing we can control is our reaction to that.”

Shake It Off is accompanied by an equally chirpy music video directed by Mark Romanek (Johnny Cash’s Hurt, Michael and Janet Jackson’s Scream videos). In it, the 24-year-old singer is flanked by ballerinas, gymnasts and twerking women.

Whether any of that will appeal to the country fans who made her a superstar remains to be seen.

“Does anyone still think of Taylor Swift as a country artist anymore?” says Rolling Stone contributing editor Anthony DeCurtis. “She’s very career-savvy, and I’m sure she and her handlers are convinced she can withstand any potential blowback. And I would agree.”

Says Jason Lipshutz, associate editor at Billboard, “I don’t think it’s Taylor Swift deserting the genre as much as it’s Taylor Swift trying something new.

“Her last album was based in country music, but it had a lot of bubblegum pop in it,” he says. “She’s always been a great storyteller, but she’s been trying her hand at pop music more and more.

“It’s kind of a complete transition that if you’ve been paying attention, you could see coming.”

But Gregg Swedberg, program director of K102 in Minneapolis, doesn’t believe country radio “will pay Taylor much attention this time.”

“I’m sure there will be some stations who will play it a couple of times, as she makes high-quality music no matter the genre,” he adds. “Taylor fans will love the new music, and it’s well known that her fans come from all formats.

Ciara Dishes On Being A New Mommy And Life After Her ex, Future

Follow us: @eotmonline on Twitter | eotm.media on Facebook

Singer Ciara is single again — oh, and just in case you missed it — a brand new mommy! The diva recently opened up to E! News, dishing on her bouncy baby boy, Future Zahir Wilburn, born on May 19th — and the devastating break-up with rapper Future. Ciara, 28, called it quits earlier this week after learning the rap superstar cheated.

Us Weekly broke the news first on the couples split.

When asked about the rumors surrounding the “wedding,” Future chided, he and CiCi were addressing things head-on.

“We’re focusing on whatever concerns us. Anything that concerns us as far as career, baby showers, pregnancies, wedding, having a baby, everything that’s going on, we’re focusing on it. We’ve gotta to make sure everything is up to our standard.” (ELLE)

Can’t say we’re surprised. The couple got engaged shortly after they began dating, less than a year later. Not to mention that adding a kid to the equation doesn’t seem to sit well with Future, according to his track record. It sucks, especially now that there’s a kid involved.

Ciara shared some “Conscious Uncoupling ,” nuggets as well.

“I’m in a much more clairvoyant place in my life. So, I want to express that through my music,” she said.

“I think that when you become a mom… you don’t really worry about the small stuff. I’m just way more centered. It makes you focus even more on what your goals are in life. And I just feel a whole new spiritual energy that’s happening,” the diva added.

However, according to an E! insider, Ciara was “devastated” after learning of the betrayal, but despite it all, the R&B singer appears to be taking everything in stride and worrying about the things that truly matter.

“My son has been the best thing that has happened in my life. He has been amazing and he is truly heaven-sent. And so, I just feel all that love, I am happy with it just being me and my baby.

Future Zahir Wilburn, born on May 19, 2014

She added, that she still has lofty goals that she aims to accomplish. ” I can’t waste time. I have to go for it. It’s actually pushing me harder, and forward.”

Noting that parenthood has fueled her to be even more diligent about her career. “I want to be one of those moms and women that when I look back, I know that I always stayed focused,” she explained.

And speaking on new music, The Body Part crooner says she has been hard at work in the studio with mega-producers Dr. Luke and Mike Will, and admonishes, “Now my concept is do more… times three. I’m all about making the best music possible… We’re just having fun, letting the music live. Just letting it be.”

“It’s a great thing,” she said of motherhood. “I wouldn’t trade it for the world, and I’m very, very happy.”

By Tawanda Cawthon

Singer, Award Winning Author and Humanitarian Lourdes Duque Baron has established ‘The Hope For The World Foundation’ and plans to launch a high profile celebrity studded fundraising campaign to benefit ‘The World Medical Mission Foundation’. The missions infrastructure is non-profit and has provided medical and surgical treatment throughout the Philippines and Mexico, assisting poverty stricken individuals for over 28 years, with the goal of helping ensure people around the globe receive the medical treatment they need, when they need it.

“During a time when health insurance and medical care is non existent in some areas, and at an all-time high in others, ‘The Hope For The World Foundation,’ couldn’t have come at a better time. Lourdes is a gem, truly a Godsend,” Carla B., Founder of EOTM Media Group said.


The extravaganza is slated for January 2015 at Boulevard 3 in Hollywood, California. The charity event will raise funds for the mission, helping to continue its life’s work, doing their part to help change the world, wherever it’s needed the most.

Hope For The World Foundation, which is the first of its kind also aims to take concrete steps to improve lives and to establish best practices in medicine.

Baron, who recently launched her music career defines her music as a “stepping-stone” to this greater mission. Noting, medical treatment is so important and that “everybody should have a chance in life.”

More than 50 percent of revenues from Ms. Baron’s music will go directly toward the lifesaving medical mission, and the philanthropist is not stopping there. Over the next  couple of years the admirable crusade will continue to fund the mission, focusing on children and those in need in the developing world.

The programs will also advance the organization’s initiatives in all areas of medicine under the direction of Dr. Robinson V. Baron and their daughter, Stephanie Baron, P.A.-C, Director of the medical mission.
