Stones Reissued on Clear Vinyl- The Rolling Stones’ former label, ABKCO Records, is joining the band’s 50th anniversary celebration by reissuing three classic Stones albums on clear 180 gram vinyl. I used to buy all the colored vinyl, but this is the absence of color.
The reissues, which will be available on May 28th, are part of the company’s new campaign, ‘The Rolling Stones Clearly Classic,’ which promises songs “meticulously mastered from high-resolution audio files sourced from the original master tapes, assuring optimal sound quality that exceeds both conventional CD audio and digital downloads,” according to a press release.
The three albums — ‘Beggars Banquet,’ ‘Let It Bleed’ and ‘Hot Rocks 1964-1971′ — include tracks like ‘Sympathy for the Devil,’ ‘Street Fighting Man,’ ‘Gimme Shelter’ and ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want.’
All three reissues are already available for pre-order on Amazon, where they’re going from $22 to $28.

Bono has turned down the chance to receive an honorary degree during his daughter's graduation ceremony in New York next week.
Bono’s 21-year-old daughter Eve Hewson will receive her degree from New York University on May 22nd, and college chiefs offered her famous father a honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree on the same day.
However, he has decided against accepting the honor so he can concentrate on cheering on his daughter's achievements although he was very honored but wanted to spend the day as a proud father.
Joe Flannery, The Beatles’ booking agent during the band's early career, claims John Lennon confessed that he had gone overboard with his political statements.
Lennon was also planning to return to his hometown of Liverpool and wanted to sail into the city on board luxury liner Queen Elizabeth 2 as his fans lined the shore.
According to Britain's Daily Express, Flannery says he spoke to Lennon months before he was shot dead outside his New York apartment in 1980, and recalls, "We enjoyed a lengthy conversation." He said John mentioned, "We should start talking about me coming home, before Nixon gets me', he said. I was rather taken aback and asked him to explain. John launched into a diatribe against the former president. He was convinced that even out of office Nixon carried power and wanted him dead.
"He felt some kind of curse was hanging over him... His tone bothered me a little, expressing as it did what sounded like a touch of paranoia. 'It would be good to come home for a bit.'"
