In 2014, Bruce Springsteen scored his 10th UK number 1 album with ‘High Hopes’.

In 2017, Alanis Morissette’s former business manager admitted to stealing over $7 million from the singer as well as other celebrities. Jonathan Schwartz was charged with fraud over claims he transferred Morissette’s money into his own accounts. When initially confronted about the theft, Mr. Schwartz lied and said he had invested the money in an illegal marijuana growing business.

In 2018, it was announced that Tom Petty had died from an accidental opioid overdose. The singer was 66 years old.
