The Beatles’ Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover is perhaps one of the most iconic in history, but would you pay over a million dollars to own a piece of it? The hand-painted drum skin on that cover sold yesterday to a private collector for $1.1 million, four times its estimated worth, reports Reuters. The sale took place at a Christie’s rock and memorabilia auction in London that also included one of Pete Townshend’s SG Specials, a guitar amp used by Jimi Hendrix, and a pair of John Lennon’s prescription sunglasses.

’90s Brit-pop heroes the Verve mark their return with an abstract new video stuffed with images of mountain ranges, synchronized dancers, and slow-motion shots of flamenco dancers, falcons, and teenagers making out. More troublesome though is that the clip accompanying the single “Love Is Noise” doesn’t include any shots of frontman Richard Ashcroft in the same room as the rest of the band, which only recently put their acrimony aside after nearly a decade apart.

Twenty-one-year-old Scottish bassist Richard Allan headbanged a little too ferociously at his gig in Edinburgh Friday night with hardcore band The Day I Vanished. Following the show, he mistook his blurry vision as a side effect of the bright side lights. Turns out he suffers from detached retinas and has gone partially blind because of all those herky-jerky head motions. “I guess I do go a bit mental at gigs,” Allan told The Scotsman. “We all leap about the place and headbang because we love our music, but I never thought it would make me start to go blind.

The Dave Matthews Band lived up to its headline billing during a blistering performance at the inaugural offering of the Rothbury Festival in Michigan on Saturday night, while Trey Anastasio and two of his former bandmates further stoked speculation of an imminent Phish reunion during their jubilant Sunday night finale. The performances were two of the best highlights from the four-day affair in Rothbury, Mich., which drew more than 35,000 attendees to the Double JJ Ranch located 25 miles north of Muskegon, Mich., according to festival organizers. Approximately 80 musical acts performed on six different stages throughout the long weekend. DMB utilized an eight-piece lineup for the show, which included longtime DMB collaborator Tim Reynolds and saxophonist Jeff Coffin of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. Coffin is filling in temporarily for the injured Leroi Moore, whose condition was upgraded from serious to fair over the weekend as he continues to recuperate from injuries sustained last Monday at his farm outside Charlottesville, Va., while riding an all-terrain vehicle. The extent of Moore’s injuries remains unknown.

The Telegraph reports that AC/DC's "Highway to Hell" has increasingly become one of the most-requested dirges at funerals around Adelaide, the most populous city in South Australia. Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven," Frank Sinatra's "My Way," and Louis Armstrong's "Wonderful World" make the list, too. The information comes courtesy of Centennial Park, the city's largest cemetery and crematorium. "Some of the more unusual songs we hear actually work very well within the service because they represent the person's character," said an executive at Centennial. Tradition isn't completely lost. The hymns "Amazing Grace" and "Abide With Me" are still among the Top 10 most requested songs.
