- The blues will be honored at the Obamas’ next big music night. Performers for the Feb. 21 “In Performance at the White House” will include Mick Jagger, B.B. King, Keb Mo, Jeff Beck, Gary Clark Jr., Shemekia Copeland, Buddy Guy and Trombone Shorty, the White House announced Monday.

- Big Grammy winners Adele and Bon Iver are in no rush to follow up their prize-winning albums. "I am [expletive] off for four or five years. If I am constantly working, my relationships fail," Adele said. Meanwhile, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon told Spin, “I wonder if there will be another record, if there can be.” They will both be heard from sooner rather than later, don’t worry.

- Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver found rare Joy Division and New Order master tapes while digging up the basement of an old bank he’s turning into a restaurant. It’s a key find because the amount of Joy Division reissues has been very lacking lately

- Will all of the original members of Guns ‘N Roses be present for the band’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction? It seems like that might be the case.

- RIP Dory Previn , who helped pen the score for the film “Valley of the Dolls” and the theme for “Last Tango in Paris.” She also released a handful of haunting and introspective albums in the 1970s — listen below.

- Another note from Grammy night — the award for Best Children’s Recording went to the compilation “All About the Bullies,” which features a contribution by local children’s music favorite Barry Louis Polisar.
