Johnny Depp joins Jeff Beck onstage in Sheffield, UK for Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon and Marvin Gaye covers

Up until very recently, Johnny Depp has been in the midst of a widely publicized defamation trial against his former wife Amber Heard, so he was perhaps the last person fans expected to see at a recent Jeff Beck gig in Sheffield, England.

The Guide #36: From Marvin Gaye to the Macarena, inside one man’s quest to review over 1,000 US No 1s

This week, something a little different: an interview with journalist Tom Breihan, author of one of my favourite pop cultural columns, Stereogum’s The Number Ones. Back in 2018, Tom landed on the ambitious/foolhardy idea of reviewing every single Billboard No 1 single in chronological order, and assigning each one a score out of 10. Tom’s early columns, taking in late 50s hits like Mack the Knife (grade: 9/10) and, err, The Chipmunk Song (grade 2/10: “As a parlor trick and a feat of engineering, it’s just staggering. As a piece of music, it sucks shit”) are pithy and direct, focusing more on delivering a verdict than anything else.
