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]

Five-time world champion MC Mary Kom thrashed Sweden’s Juliana Soderstrom in her opening bout of the AIBA World Women’s Boxing Championships today. The seasoned Manipuri is now two wins away from booking a place in the upcoming Rio Olympics. Mary (51kg) defeated Soderstrom 3-0 in a thoroughly one-sided contest to set up a clash on Saturday with Germany’s Azize Nimani, who stunned Asian Games bronze-medallist Nandintsetseg Myagmardulam of Mongolia.In a clinical performance, Mary outsmarted Soderstrom, who had the advantage of a superior height and reach.The 32-year-old Indian Olympic bronze medallist had worked hard on her reflexes ahead of the tournament and the efforts were there to be seen as she easily foiled Soderstrom’s attempts of attacking her.The Asian Games gold-medallist, who is eyeing not just a medal but also an Olympic berth in this event, used her left hooks to telling effect against Soderstrom, who failed miserably in capitalising on her reach.In the end, it was hardly a surprise that the judges unanimously picked Mary Kom as the winner.The prestigious event – the final qualifying tournament for women boxers in the three Olympic categories of 51kg, 60kg, and 75kg – has 12 Rio tickets on offer, which means pugilists will have to at least make it to the semi-finals of the three chosen divisions to book their berth.(With PTI inputs)
