Welcome to this week’s edition of BestMusicLive TV where we have a passion for live music!
 Coming up, The Beat is Law, Bonnaroo Kicks off, Mayer tops the chart, Shirley Manson
is the karma police, Metallica robbed of royalties and more right here on BestMusicLive TV
John Mayer earned some redemption from fans after his fifth album "Born And Raised" debuted
at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart on Wednesday, beating back stiff competition from rocker
Slash and several "American Idol" alumni. He retreated to a quieter life in Montana,
embracing laid-back country sounds for "Born And Raised." The album sold 219,000 copies
in its first week, notching a third No. 1 debut for JM.  Have a listen to the full
album on now.
Garbage singer Shirley Manson halted a show in New Jersey on Saturday night to reprimand
a man she saw hit a woman in the audience. The flame-haired Scot was in the middle of
the tune "Stupid Girl" at the Phoenix Concert Theatre when the incident went down. After
she fired a barrage of f-bombs at the man. She then calmed the crowd down, adding to
additional colorful superlatives, "It's like herding cattle in here tonight! I just think
we all just need to simmer down .... I think there's some bad karma in this room." Thanks
for correcting the Karma.
The Boss was the headlining act at the Pinkpop Festival in Landgraaf in the Netherlands and
performed a 23-song set of his greatest hits, including "Dancing in the Dark" and "Born
to Run." He ended his show with a special encore -- Grammy-winning British rockers Mumford
& Sons joined him on stage to perform "Hungry Heart."
This oughtta bake your noodle.  Metallica are under pressure to keep touring continuously
as they no longer receive regular royalty checks to sustain them during their time off,
according to guitarist Kirk Hammett. The rocker admits all his band mates would
like to take a break to spend time with their families, but the band has to continue working
to keep the money rolling in. He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "The cycles of taking two
years off don't exist anymore. But, you know, it is what it is, and we can't change that."
Bonnaroo rocked a solid 3 days including sets from Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alice Cooper,
Beach Boys, Avett Brothers, Alabama Shakes, and D’Angelo ammoung others.  During the
Radiohead show, Tom York dedicated “Supercollider”, a new song the band is currently road testing,
to Jack White, hinting at a very recent collaboration.  There was a live stream via their youtube
channel in case you weren’t able to be there.
The Beat is Law. Eve Wood directed documentary of Pulp and the Sheffield music scene is a
fantastic journey through cold war and post cold war era history of musicians and artisans
hailing from Sheffield, England.  Highlighting Pulp, (and others) this is a great inside
story and visual illustration of the struggles and over commings that shaped some great bands.
 For more info and a link to watch see the post on and a special thanks
to Eve for sending us a copy. New releases this week include: The Beach
Boys 'That's Why God Made the Radio', Neil Young & Crazy Horse 'Americana', Patti Smith
'Banga', The Hives ‘Lex Hives’
