Bette Midler, Jason Isbell Join Statement to Congress Urging CLASSICS Act Passage
12/20/2017 by Billboard Staff

A group of more than 40 artists, including Jason IsbellEmmylou HarrisHenry Rollins and Bette Midler, have signed a letter to Congress urging them to pass the CLASSICS Act, which would require digital radio services such as SiriusXM to pay royalties on pre-1972 sound recordings.

“Digital radio makes billions of dollars a year from airplay of music made before 1972,” the artists wrote. “Yet, because of an ambiguity in state and federal copyright laws, artists and copyright owners who created that music receive nothing for the use of their work.

We urge Congress to pass the CLASSICS Act and other pro-artist reforms quickly.” Read More

The best NYC theater of 2017 spanned Bette Midler in ‘Hello Dolly,’ Jake Gyllenhaal in Sondheim, and Tony Kushner telling The Daily Beast he was planning a play about Donald Trump.

It is rare for theater to make the news.

CBS may give one Sunday a year over to the Tony Awards (and here is what won what this year), but these celebrate the best of Broadway; theater made as safe and glittery as possible. Any edge is left to the winners’ speeches and hosts’ japing. Read More
