Here is a new trailer for HBO’s upcoming show called Vinyl. Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, Terence Winter (writer / producer of Boardwalk Empire, The Sopranos) have been working on it for 6 years. The show, set during the New York music scene of the 1970s, is going to trace the rise and fall of the fictional American Century Records. Vinyl stars Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, P.J. Byrne, J.C. MacKenzie, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Juno Temple, Jack Quaid, James Jagger, and Paul Ben-Victor.

Richest lead singers

Paul McCartney named world’s richest lead singer ($800 million in net worth) – Bono is second ($600 million) on the list followed by Jimmy Buffet ($400 million), Elton John ($320 million), and Mick Jagger ($305 million).

I am surprised at Jimmy Buffet. I knew the dude was rich, but figured others would be ahead of him. $400 million will buy you a lot of Cheeseburgers in Paradise.
