It was a long summer for Wiz Khalifa. One month ago, his wife filed for divorce. A month before that, a 38-year-old man named Eric Johnson was shot and killed after one of the Pittsburgh rapper's Bay Area shows; and all the way back in May, El Paso police arrested him for attempting to bring weed into the city's airport. Last night at the Observatory in Santa Ana, however, on the first stop of the Black Hollywood Big Secret Tour, all that seemed far in the rearview, and Khalifa was in the mood to celebrate: During his 75 minutes on stage, this became the summer when he scored his first crossover Number One album – and nothing more. Questlove's Top 50 Hip-Hop Songs of All Time   Arriving just before 1:00 AM, Khalifa – outfitted with a red bomber jacket, ripped jeans and Ninja Turtles chain, perpetually the coolest kid in high school – and his four-piece band played through a carefully curated set list with loose precision. There was no trouble with timing or with sound, and there was no "Black and Yellow." Instead, Khalifa looked to deliver "something more intimate, something everyone can reach out and grab." Eschewing arena grandiose, the rapper darted across the stage, delivering lines directly to fans while shaking hands and dodging (or occasionally putting himself under the spell of) outstretched marijuana. Take that, Texas. Still, the Wiz you get in person is not the meandering stoner of his recorded work – Khalifa the performer is animated and engaging. During "The Sleaze," his delicate run of triplets sent the packed room into a frenzy, and this was not an anomaly: All night, Khalifa's enthusiasm was so infectious that technical cuts like "ATL Freestyle" easily passed for crowd-pleasers.  Of course, above all else, Wiz had in fact come here to please the crowd. And while the set list leaned on this year's Blacc Hollywood (and its precursor mixtape, 28 Grams), breaks between songs were filled with references and callbacks to star-making works like Kush & Orange Juice and Cabin Fever. That sense of balance lent the night an interesting populism: Sure, there was the larger-than-life echo of "We Dem Boyz," but it was offset by closer "Who I Am," from 2009's pre-fame Deal or No Deal. At his best, Khalifa is reminiscent of the great party-starters from the generation above him. During "KK," Wiz and his Taylor Gang cronies broke out makeshift choreography for Juicy J's verses, the crew embracing fans and lip-synching the entirety of Snoop Dogg's vocals on "Young, Wild & Free." Khalifa is not quite as charismatic or incisive as either elder statesman, but on record and onstage, he has the same outlook: Have as much fun as your body will let you, and worry about your bills and your job and your lungs later on.    Neither Juicy nor Snoop made an appearance, but Khalifa was ultimately joined by a more contemporary kindred spirit when New Orleans' Curren$y took the stage for "House in the Hills," the pair's brooding Blacc Hollywood duet. After the song, the rappers stopped to light up on the wings of the stage. "Hold on," Curren$y said. "I didn't come out here just for you to take my lighter." Khalifa just laughed: "That's what friends are for."

Jack Bruce, the singer and bassist for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band Cream, has passed away, his family confirmed the musician's passing on his Facebook page. He was 71. Fricke's Picks: The Cream of Bruce "It is with great sadness that we, Jack’s family, announce the passing of our beloved Jack: husband, father, granddad, and all round legend. The world of music will be a poorer place without him, but he lives on in his music and forever in our hearts," the Bruce family wrote. Bruce's publicist added, "He died today at his home in Suffolk surrounded by his family." No other details were revealed. As one-third of one of rock's greatest trios, along with guitarist Eric Clapton and drummer Ginger Baker, Bruce was the voice and songwriter behind classic tracks like "White Room," "SWLABR," and "Sunshine of Your Love," which Bruce co-wrote with Clapton. Considered to be the first rock "supergroup," Cream pumped out four studio albums in three years – three of which landed on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time – before going their separate ways. The band reunited briefly in 1993 for their Rock Hall induction, then again in for a triumphant series of 2005 concerts at London's Royal Albert Hall and New York's Madison Square Garden. In 2006, Bruce and his Cream mates received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Bruce also occasionally served as a member of Ringo Starr's All-Starr Band and collaborated on the title track of Frank Zappa's Apostrophe. Following Cream's breakup in 1968, Bruce kickstarted a long solo career with 1969's Songs of a Tailor. He would release over a dozen solo LPs over the next 45 years, including his latest album titled Silver Rails in March 2014. "I quite like to just enjoy my life. I'm thrilled to make this album. I put my heart and soul into it, and I'm very pleased with the way it came out," Bruce told Rolling Stone of his new album in April. Cream also landed on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Artists, and in an ode to the trio written by Roger Waters, the Pink Floyd bassist writes, "Then there's Jack Bruce — probably the most musically gifted bass player who's ever been."

Foo Fighters' HBO series Sonic Highways visited Washington D.C. Friday night, which marked a homecoming of sorts for Dave Grohl: The rocker was raised in the Virginia suburbs outside of D.C. – his mother still lives there – and he started out drumming for area acts like Mission Impossible, Dain Bramage and "his favorite band ever," Scream. In addition to recording the Sonic Highways track "The Feast and the Famine," Grohl also provides an extensive look at a pair of homegrown genres that became the backbone of the D.C. music scene: Go-go and hardcore punk. Here are five things we learned from the Sonic Highways trip to the nation's capital. Inside the Foo Fighters' Wildly Ambitious New Album 1. D.C's go-go scene had a profound impact on both hardcore punk and Pharrell Williams"When you're a kid, your environment is your main influence, but you don't know that until you grow up, start finding out about yourself," Pharrell Williams says on Sonic Highways. The Neptunes producer was raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia, not too far from the go-go scene in D.C., and the complex drumming and funk rhythms of that musical style have made their way into Williams' productions: Nelly's hit "Hot in Herre," produced by the Neptunes, borrows its hook from "Godfather of Go-Go" Chuck Brown's "Bustin' Loose." With D.C.'s hardcore scene exploding thanks to Minor Threat, Scream and Bad Brains, those audiences found kinship with go-go acts like Trouble Funk, and the groups would often stage unlikely "punk/funk" gigs together. 2. "The Feast and the Famine" lyrics make a lot more sense after viewing the episodeEven more than the Chicago-inspired "Something From Nothing," the Sonic Highways D.C. track is packed with references to the city's history and music scene. "Last night they were burning for truth, down on the corner of 14th and U" references the scene of the city's 1968 riots following the death of Martin Luther King, Jr. The line "Still screaming" is a nod to Scream's debut album, while "wrecked my brains" is dedicated to Bad Brains. "Where is that PMA?," Grohl sings, which harkens back to Bad Brains' mantra "Positive Mental Attitude" as well as the spirit of Revolution Summer. 3. Ian MacKaye wasn't a punk music fan The father of D.C. hardcore, MacKaye was a member of the Teen Idles, Minor Threat and Fuguzi, as well as the co-founder of Dischord Records. Still, MacKaye didn't care for the Clash or Sex Pistols, who were busy singing about heady political matters that didn't much apply to a D.C. high school student. Instead, MacKaye worshipped Ted Nugent. "Punk just seemed kind of a joke to me," MacKaye tells Sonic Highways. 4. One man's name is on almost every single landmark hardcore D.C. album: Don Zientara As a producer, engineer and owner of Arlington, Virginia's tiny Inner Ear Studios, Zientara's name appears in the credits of countless hardcore sleeves, from Minor Threat to Nation of Ulysses' 13-Point Program to Destroy America. Upon touring Zientara's memento-packed Inner Ear Studios, the Foo Fighters' Nate Mendel admits that this was the studio he looked forward to recording in the most since Zientara was responsible the soundtrack of his youth. "The Feast and the Famine" was also recorded at Inner Ear. 5. Grohl still considers himself a D.C. rocker While people often – incorrectly – call Foo Fighters a "Seattle band" due to Grohl's Nirvana roots and the band's debut LP being recorded in that city, Grohl aligns himself with the Washington D.C. area as Foo Fighters' There Is Nothing Left to Lose and One By One were both recorded in the Virginia suburbs in D.C. "The experiences I've had in this city, from the age of 14 years old, set this foundation for the rest of my life as a musician," Grohl says in the episode. "The community, the support, the love that was here in the D.C. music scene has carried over into what I do now. The way that Foo Fighters work now, we're like a family, and we try to treat everyone that way."
