MALCOLM YOUNG, AC/DC guitarist and co-founder, died on Saturday after a period of ill health in Sydney at the age of 64.  For Those About To Rock, We Salute Him.  Here's the 10 best AC/DC songs, as voted by RS readers in 2014.  And here's a video about Malcolm and his brother Angus forming the band.

BENJAMIN BOOKER played a Tiny Desk Concert.

LUKAS NELSON stopped by Radio Heartland for a chat and mini-set.

DUDE YORK streams Halftime For The Holidays.

THE FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS cover "Six Days on the Road."

SCOTT McCAUGHEY,  frontman for cult-favorite Pacific Northwest acts the Minus 5 and Young Fresh Fellows and longtime touring member of R.E.M., has suffered a stroke.

DAVID CASSIDY remains in a Florida hospital where he is dealing with multiple organ failure.

ANGEL OLSEN talked to Under The Radar about Phases.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE:  Justice League topped the chart with 96MM... but projections had been between 120-140MM.  That's not quite disastrous with another 185MM in foreign sales, but against a 300MM production budget, it's not great, Bob. Wonder placed with 27MM against a reported 20MM budget.  Thor: Ragnarok showed with 21.8MM on a 62 percent drop that had to be expected with Justice League's debut. Marvel's already well into the black here.  Daddy's Home 2 took the fourth slot with 14.8MM on a 50 percent drop that probably means it doesn't match the original's final gross.  Murder on the Orient Express rounded out the Top Five with 13.8MM on a 52 percent slide that may concern the studio (tho with 148MM total worldwide against a 55MM budget, they could be in breakeven territory already).

RUSSELL SIMMONS is accused of sexually assaulting model Keri Claussen Khalighi while Brett Ratner watched.

LENA DUNHAM defended a Girls writer accused of sexual assault, then issued a statement of apology for doing so, then deleted that statement.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN drew up a list of 91 people for his team upon learning his sexual misconduct was under journalistic investigation.

THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

...with THE PAISLEY UNDERGROUND!  A two-part (Part 1, Part 2) feature from the Old Grey Whistle Test on L.A.'s psychedelic-flavored, West Coast scene in the mid-80s. Bands featured include the Long Ryders, Prime Movers, Thin White Rope, Pontiac Brothers and the Rain Parade with a 6 minute live version of No Easy Way Down. The Long Ryders get short shrift so I'll add in their later OGWT appearance to play "Looking For Lewis & Clark." The term "Paisley Underground" is believed to have been jokingly coined by Michael Quercio of the band The Three O'Clock, so I'll toss in the clip for "Her Head's Revolving" as a bonus. Other bands associated with the scene not featured include Green On Red -- sometimes likened to The Doors for songs like "Two Lovers" and "Change" -- and The Bangs, a/k/a The Bangles, with an early track, "The Real World."  DOUBLE BONUS: The Guardian Music Blog has a link-rich piece on the Rain Parade and other Paisley Underground bands.

ELBOW stopped by Morning Becomes Eclectic for a session.

IRON & WINE stopped by WFUV for a session.

RIDE performed in the BBC's 6 Music Live Room.

JIMMY RUFFIN asks "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted?"

STEVE WINWOOD talked to World Cafe about his career and new live LP.

THE STORY OF GOTH in 33 Songs.

PROTOMARTYR was profiled by Drowned in Sound.

DAVID BAZAN talks to City Paper about all of this, plus Tom Petty, the state of evangelical Christianity, and exercising his songwriting muscles.

NOW SHOWING: This weekend's wide releases include Justice League, which is currently scoring 36 percent on the ol' Tomatometer; Wonder, scoring 83 percent; and The Star, scoring 72 percent.

JUSTICE LEAGUE: I once saw a movie about Earth's mightiest heroes teaming up to beat back an alien invasion called The Avengers. DC's team-up epic has largely the same plot, which is fine as long as the execution is good.  And the execution here is ... adequate.  The alien menace has none of the charisma of Loki, for example.  Justice League is a bit better than the theatrical release of Batman v Superman, worse than Wonder Woman; though Gal Gadot's presence here helps considerably, her little solo sequence serves as a reminder that she's the best thing in this movie and that the script should have leaned more on the idea of this as her modern-day coming out.  That said, Ezra Miller does fine providing comic relief as the Flash and Jason Momoa raises a little bit of promise for Aquaman (if not as much promise as Gadot did in BvS).  Jeremy Irons gets the best line, as Alfred: "I'll bet."  The score has a little fun subtly reprising some of the past DC movie character themes from Danny Elfman and John Williams.  And DC picks up the Marvel habit of the post-credits sequence; there are two, the second pointing to The Batman.

GAL GADOT is profiled by GQ.

SYLVESTER STALLONE is vehemently denying an allegation he sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl.
