MAX Rock Report-Friday, 8/28/15:

*At this point it’s not shocking to see Miley Cyrus in a set of pasties, but it apparently still makes some people uncomfortable. In case you didn’t stay up late Wednesday night, Miley revealed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that the fact that some people don’t know how to react to her having her boobs out, actually puts her at ease.

Miley explained that when she was inducting Joan Jett into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame she got to meet Paul McCartney, and the pasties certainly made things awkward. "I was talking to Paul McCartney and saw him not knowing how to talk to me," Cyrus said. "It made me more comfortable because it made him more uncomfortable." She added, "Sometimes it's a nice conversation icebreaker. You can be like 'Stop staring at my t*ts!' and the conversation just keeps going."

*As if a nine-minute short film wasn't enough, U2 released a new video for "Song For Someone." This clip is a more traditional four minutes and shows black and white footage with Bono's face over it.

Version two of "Song For Someone" was directed by Matt Mahurin, who has previously worked with the band on the "Love Is Blindness" and "With or Without You" videos.

*Tommy Iommi was diagnosed with cancer back in 2012 and now he found a way to convey how that felt. The Black Sabbath guitarist was among those who stood in an isolation box that allowed people to look in but the person inside wasn't able to see out. 

This idea was part of the Macmillan Cancer Support‘s “Not Alone” campaign as a way to give people a way to feel the loneliness of being diagnosed with the disease. 

“When you get cancer it’s terrible because you tend to isolate yourself, and you can quite easily isolate yourself too much,” Iommi told the Birmingham Mail. “Some people get frightened and locked in this box, and they can’t do anything because it is daunting...To talk to somebody is probably the best therapy you can have.”

*Van Morrison is set to re-issuetwo of his albums, including the 1968 classic “Astral Weeks.” Remastered versions of that album, as well as 1970s “His Band and the Street Choir” will drop on October 30th.

Both will come out digitally and on CD, and feature a variety of extras. “Astral Weeks’ will include new versions of "Beside You," and "Madame George,” as well as longer versions of "Ballerina" and "Slim Slow Slider." 

Meanwhile, “His Band and the Street Choir,” will include five unreleased bonus cuts.

*Neil Young will be celebrated in New York next month with a two-day festival at the Bowery Ballroom. “Neil Fest: A Night To Celebrate The Music of Neil Young 2015,” set for September 13th and 14th, will feature artists such asRyan Adams, Jakob Dylan, Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon, Norah Jones, The Black Keys' Patrick Carney and more.

Proceeds from the two-day concert will go to the Jameson Neighborhood fund, which raises money for charities that provide education and resources to the local bartender, musicians and craft communities in order to keep the spirit of the neighborhood alive and well. 

John McEnroe is one of the most famous tennis players of all time, but did you know he could sing? McEnroe was at a bar in the Hamptons over the weekend when he decided to jump on stage and do a cover of a tune by one of the most famous rock bands of all time- Nirvana.

McEnroe, who was backed up by his daughter Ava and his wife, singer Patty Smyth, played “Territorial Pissings” to a crowd that included Lorne Michaels andHarvey Weinstein.

Check out some fan shot footage of the performance but let's hope he sticks to the courts.
