Woodstock is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a new event in Watkins Glen, New York over the weekend of August 16th, and the lineup was just announced.

Dead & Company and Santana were part of the original 1969 festival, and some other returning legacy acts include: John Fogerty,John Sebastian,Country Joe McDonald,Canned Heat, and Hot Tuna.

John Fogerty says, quote, "The mood in the country is different, similar in many respects, but different. I'm very glad that I'm able to be here 50 years later . . . I'm going to be playing most of the same songs that I played then."

Robert Plant is on the bill, performing withThe Sensational Space Shifters. Robert's other band . . .Led Zeppelin, you might have heard of them . . . was invited to perform at the original show, but they turned it down.

Ellen had on a nine-year-old kid who's awesome on the guitar yesterday, and he did the solo from "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns N' Roses. His name is Taj Farrant, he's from Australia, and he's only been playing for two and a half years.

A British guy named Ben Lomas was so obsessed with Michael Jackson, he changed his name to John Michael Jackson four years ago.

 He also says he's spent a million dollars over the past 25 years on Michael Jackson memorabilia and trips. But now he wants to change his name back, because of the allegations in the new documentary . He also thinks it's preventing him from getting a job in the care industry.

New Found Glory Covering Movie Songs For New Album

New Found Glory is dishing out their third album of movie songs, “From The Screen To Your Stereo 3.” This time, the band was inspired by the movie “Be Kind, Rewind” starring Mos Def and Jack Black to create music videos for each of the record’s seven tracks. The result is a series of similarly DIY recreated scenes from “Rocky 3,” “Back To The Future,” “Frozen” and more.

They're giving fans a preview with a cover of “This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman.” “We wrote all the videos ourselves, mapped out all the shots, found all the costumes and locations, and did seven videos,” says guitarist Chad Gilbert. “What’s really cool about ‘This Is Me’ is that our friends loved the song, older punk rock fans don’t know ‘The Greatest Showman’ and they’re like, ‘This just sounds like an awesome New Found Glory song.’”

“From The Screen To Your Stereo 3” is due for release on May 3rd. Fans can pre-order the album in a variety of formats and bundles.
