Gary Clark Jr., one of the widely recognized modern torch-bearers of the blues, has already turned heads with his fuzzed-out, reimagined cover of The Beatles‘ “Come Together”. The fiery new take was used as the background music for trailers for the new Justice League film, which hits theaters this weekend. Clark also channeled his inner super hero for his own official music video for the single. Today, Billboard premiered a new pro-shot live video of Clark and his band performing the cover live at the LA Forum (while on tour with Eric Clapton) and, spoiler alert: it rocks even harder than the studio take.As Clark remarked to Billboard about the performance, “All I remember was this was a great night in L.A. playing with [Eric] Clapton,” Clark Jr. tells Billboard. “This version of ‘Come Together’ just felt right. We have a great time playing this song.” Check it out below:Watch Gary Clark Jr. lead his band through his blue-hot reimagining of The Beatles’ “Come Together” live at the L.A. forum via his YouTube page, courtesy of Billboard:Gary Clark Jr.’s Drops Justice League-Themed Music Video For His Heavy Take On “Come Together”With the film receiving its predicted middling-to-negative reviews, Clark may be the most exciting thing about the high-budget super hero release. Clark has previously spoken about his love of various superhero franchises, telling Airows, “Batman is my favorite superhero of all time. My mother had this black robe that I thought would be amazing for a cape. I ran around my neighborhood telling everybody I was Batman. Jump off my roof holding the cape thinking that I would fly and then just hit the ground.”You can also watch the official super-powered music video for Clark’s “Come Together” cover, which serves as the theme for the newly released Justice League film below:[h/t – Billboard]
Press Association Chelsea owner Abramovich was pictured meeting players at training, and it has been reported he moved to allay any fears they may have had following Jose Mourinho’s exit on Thursday. Former Holland boss Hiddink told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf he was in London on Friday to discuss a short-term role with Chelsea, following Mourinho’s departure. Just seven months after leading Chelsea to the title Mourinho has left by “mutual consent” according to the club’s official statement. Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo cited “palpable discord” between the manager and players for Mourinho’s departure however. Russian billionaire Abramovich will now hope to complete swift negotiations over a second caretaker stint for Hiddink. The 69-year-old guided Chelsea to the 2009 FA Cup in a short-term deal, and is now primed to reprise that role. Roman Abramovich swept into Chelsea’s Cobham training ground on Friday amid reports Guus Hiddink is in London to hold discussions with the club about becoming their interim manager.
