PJ Harvey nearly became the new singer with Nirvana at a UK concert last month, Dave Grohl has revealed.
Adele made her long-awaited comeback as she took six gongs to become the biggest winner at the Grammy Awards - and dedicated one of the prizes to the doctors who saved her voice.
After seven years with a no-host format, the Grammys will have an emcee — LL Cool J.
British songstress Adele has been given the perfect get well gift after being nominated for six Grammys at next year's awards.
Amidst the Sunday mudbathing, the novelty of an almost completely redesigned site and some thrilling headline performances, this year's T in the Park was memorable for two very different sets that nailed the spirit of their times. One, although not quite up there with Glastonbury '95, was the latest instalment of Pulp's reunion tour on the Sunday evening, a poignant reminder of just how few contemporary pop artists write from the position of taking a close look at the world around them.
My earliest food memory... My mum's trifle, which we used to have on a Sunday night.

The Foo Fighters are one of the biggest rock bands in the world now, and I still struggle to see why. This first headlining gig at Wembley, and last album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace's debut in the UK charts at No 1, confirm their conquest here. But it has been a traceless rise, leaving few truly memorable songs or moments. All that lingers, as with tonight's show, is the fiercely grinning good humour and heart of Dave Grohl. The cliché that he is the nicest man in rock seems true, an honourable thing after his last band Nirvana's end. But musically, that means nothing.
