THE ROLLING STONES covered The Beatles' "Come Together" and Dylan's "Desolation Row," along with the blues standard “Ride ‘Em On Down."

GREEN DAY dropped Revolution Radio on Spotify and Apple Music.

KT TUNSTALL played a mini-set at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.

BOOKER T & THE MG's: "Green Onions," live in '68.

TOM WAITS is locked in an angry dispute with one of France’s favorite performers, the avant-garde circus star Bartabas the Furious.

ROBERT GOLDSTEIN, guitarist for the Urban Verbs and later NPR's music librarian, died from cancer at age 66.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Girl on the Train topped the chart with 24.7MM, a debut good enough that it likely won't depend on overseas markets to profit, though a notch or two behind a similar movie, Gone Girl, in this frame.  Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children showed with 15MM, a 48 percent drop from its debut and a showing underscoring its need for foreign receipts.  Deepwater Horizon showed with 11.7MM on a 42 perecent drop, and is even less likely to benefit from foreign markets, given the subject-matter. The Magnificent Seven remake took the fourth slot with 9.1MM on a 41 percent drop, but this one likely profits based on overseas sales.  Storks rounded out the Top Five with 8.4 million and still looks unprofitable, despite crossing 100MM worldwide.

THE APPRENTICE's producer, Mark Burnett, has threatened staffers who could release potentially damaging outtakes of Donald Trump from the show.

SIGOURNEY WEAVER has been officially announced as the yet-unnamed villainess in Marvel's The Defenders on Netflix.

PIXAR's DUG THE DOG, in Real Life.

SHARKS like AC/DC and that album they make.
