Bob Dylan finally acknowledged receiving the Nobel Prize for Literature. There's been a lot reported on this fact, seeing as Dylan is the first rock songwriter to receive the honor. The Nobel Prize Award Ceremonies and Banquets will be held on December 10th in Stockholm, Sweden. Selections from a recent interview with Dylan were featured in a piece by London's The Telegraph, which features Dylan referencing the prize at various points.

Paul McCartney's new song "In The Blink Of An Eye" has made its way online. The theme song for the upcoming hand drawn animated Ernest And Ethel feature film is already out as a digital download internationally, and will be available on November 11th as a physical product via the very label that rejected the Beatles back in 1962 -- Decca Records. Check it out below. 

Retired Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman rang in his 80th birthday on Friday night (Oct. 29th) at London's Indigo at The O2 with special guests Robert Plant, Van Morrison, Mark Nobler, Simply Red's Mick Hucknall, Bob Geldof, and Steve Van Arndt. The only two Stones-related songs of the night were a reading of "Ruby Tuesday" by Wyman’s band, the Rhythm Kings and "Little Red Rooster," which Bob Geldof played.

Metallica shared photos of its limited edition Halloween mask, which some record stores/music stores had this weekend. Fans who bought the mask found an access code inside that will let them hear the band's new song, “Atlas, Rise!," 30 minutes ahead of its scheduled premiere today (October 31st) at 3:00 p.m. ET.
