“I can’t get a yes or no out of Joan, so I’ve kind of thrown in the towel. “It’s now or never. I would love it, but for some reason – I don’t know why – it’s Joan’s camp. The ball is in her camp. It’s up to them.”
perhaps we should be looking at the parents of these killing children and see what’s really happening behind these well manicured gates. Please let me know when you come across a mass shooting carried out by a poverty level inner city kid

Lamb of God Bassist John Campbell has offered up some insight via Rock Revolt Magazine. Most of us don’t stop to think of the toll it would take on the rest of the band. Their livelihood is at stake as well.
Pretty cool bands involved- this must be for the alt kids and thus a charity dear to me. Not everyone wants to meet Adam Levine, on the contrary I would prefer to never have that opportunity.

In 1989, Courtney Love was heavily involved with drugs and alcohol, and she stated in divorce records that their marriage was a joke. Joke or not, Courtney Love got pregnant and refused to stop taking drugs nevertheless, and ended up to have an abortion, which is pretty horrible already.
In this one episode Nugent shot an orynx…which is extinct. This is a good example of how idiotic Discovery was for not fact checking and how much of a tool Nugent is for doing it in the first place.
they mentioned their wish list for Coachella: David Bowie, Talking Heads, Iron Maiden and the Smiths! Good luck at booking any of these acts but Paul Tollett noted they were trying every year to get the Smiths as they offered them $5 million last time! one last thing regarding the music cruise itself, they weren’t sure about its future despite its apparent success.
Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band – Not the worst tour of his career, that would be the rising, but the second worstr tour of the year. Too long, too bloated, just a mess. Plus, if you are gonna play 210 minute gigs, start them at 8pm, for God’s sake
What the heck with this latest buzz that Ian Watkins got busted for some heavy duty sex crimes. The front man is seems to have got himself in a heap of trouble. I am a firm believer in ‘innocent til proven’
I have to say it, a 31-year gap is a little creepy, she will still be a hottie when Ronnie is a spoon-fed wheelchair-bound senile old man, but they seem happy right now, so why raining on their wedding parade? Plus all rock stars do that.
BMJ Open, concludes that pop-rock stars who had a trouble childhood, are more susceptible to die from drug-related problems or other risk-taking-heath-damaging behaviors, and that extreme wealth provide greater opportunities to engage in such behaviors.

Paul Simon attended teacher Victoria Soto’s funeral on Wednesday and, without any introduction, picked up his acoustic guitar to sing ‘The Sound of Silence’ midway through the ceremony held at the Lordship Community Church in Stratford.
Cha Cha knee – caused by repeated and abrupt twists and turns and basically just ‘going for it’, Hip Hop hip – a recent phenomenon experienced by aging street dancers, Jive spine – usually suffered when ‘Dad dancing’ – men trying to lift their dance partners off the ground, Rumba Lumbar – localised pain in the lower back caused by jerky pelvic rotations
It always saddens me just a bit to see those so young with such turmoil. At their age the world is on a string, whatever has transpired in their lives to cause them to lose this fact is a robbery of innocence too painful to endure. We forget how young these guys are.
I’ve written it here before anyone who ever heard him say ‘knowwhatImean?’ as one word…it clings to your heart as one of the most adorable sounds in the world.
The Wanted are iffy singers, they aren’t that nice because they talk about other people and the things they say are horrible, but all I know is I will never be playing with lightning!
Jack White was supposed to score the Disney movie, ‘The Lone Ranger’, but news broke that the musician was way to busy to spend any time with Johnny Depp and his new Navajo’s roots,… too bad, Depp could have helped at the guitar, he does this a lot as everyone knows.
There are no found details of what exactly caused this ruckus, but I would love to know what establishment would have glass tables and allow Manson in to begin with. High five to the person who felt compelled to whip a table at the rocker, that must have been a damn sassy altercation.
Some sources are claiming that Hodgy Beats pushed Ragasi back to the crowd, and the guy became a ping pong ball between the band and the crowd. According to several websites, Ragasi got some severe injuries
Biggie was a chronic chronic abuser,he free styled in a studio stoned, recorded it and worked from there . How did he have no marijuana in his system? How did he go and party on the West Coast and not have one single drink?
Recently the guitarist has been blazing a trail as a solo artist. With his backing unit the Brickyard Band, Scott has released three critically acclaimed solo albums and established a distinct sound that’s a smooth combination of rock, soul and blues.
The gold press of 1963’s “Please Please Me” was estimated at about 18,000 euro but it missed its mark and was pulled from auction at 12,000 (appx $18,000). The records owner Chris Collins calls the disc a ‘burden’ that has been in his sock drawer.
I can’t imagine a summer without Warped Tour or Projekt Mayhem. I can’t fathom the thought of no Scream it Like You Mean It or Take Action, let alone the infamous Camp Bisco or Wakarusa.
At the end, Macca and the rest of the band seemed to be at the top of the world, making the big finale on the stage of the Madison Square Garden in front of thousand of people, watched by millions,… meanwhile Courtney Love was either high or out of her meds, trying to start an argument with her computer
The rest of the dudes just wanna chill. Maybe Tom is just an ass to tour with. I can see that in him… like seriously cork it and have a beer.
I am so confused, he now declared he wasn’t questioning her authenticity but he nevertheless used the term ‘artifice’? Because everyone knows that Jack White never used anything close to ‘an image’ to promote his music! And there is always a deep meaning behind each one of his eccentric costumes, we know that.
Expect a 2013 solo tour from one Jimmy Page, a guitarist. Due to Robert Plant’s intransigence, the opportunity for Led Zeppelin to reform came and went with just a lousy live album and video to show for the efforts.
In short he wants to put the human touch back in the computer as he thinks ‘music services rely too much on computerized recommendations and there aren’t enough human beings advising users what music to buy’… What music to buy? If people are streaming they aren’t necessarily buying.
The multi-millionaire diva is the last person on earth that requires a patron and another $50 million! She just did a massive world tour, has an upcoming album and self-directed documentary on HBO, and will sing at the Superbowl half-time show
for me the queen has always been a ridiculous antique vase, whom English people are foolishly attached to for some obscure reasons, but I had always regarded the royals as inoffensive. Morrissey describes them as a regime no different from the current dictatorships in the Middle East and Syria
I find this stance to be inspirational if not downright finger pointing to the lesser performers who cancel a show for a hangnail. Rock on Glen, you’re the man.
He simply does not give up. A passionate vegetarian who never shuts up and has the stature and protocol to touch some pretty impressive governmental levels
By law a petition submitted to US Authorities shall have response within thirty days. But this is rock and roll and 105 days later Michael Posner throws us this bone, This guys salary is your tax dollar and he needs an assistant if it takes that long to issue this weak of a response.
His music has crossed cultures and even generations–the Beatles have sold more than 2,303,500,000 record albums, and in June of 2012 they hit number one on iTunes. They are as big now as they ever were and they’re half dead
Warped Roadies is a new show on Fuse showing a backstage and gritty look into the inner workings of this fabulous event. This ‘behind the scene’ look is going to fuel a zillion kids who will now want to be roadies
Anyone with a half way decent phone (even my crap Blackberry) and be plugged in the car for nonstop tunes. Spotify, Pandor, even Iheartradio- all are better than SiriusXM.
This idiotic rant is courtesy of Esquire who really needs readers cuz they’re a glossy. White starts with Lady Gaga and fizzles his blabber to Clint Eastwood. If ever ‘shut up and play the hits’ applied, it’s with this guy.
I have one pearl of advise for LOG singer Randy Blythe- don’t go to the Czech Republic ever again. Screw your fans have them fly over to see you, you will never be found innocent.
it was really a secret show as nobody knew they were invited to attend an Arcade Fire concert when entering the Breakglass studio. The band started the show in disguise, wearing Pussy-Riot-style masks and apparently people weren’t recognizing the true identity of ‘les Identiks’
I don’t suppose anyone ever thought hard rockers such as Led Zeppelin would be involved with this type of thing back when they were starting out.
Qello, the digital streaming service, along with Eagle Rock Entertainment are hosting a Facebook Digital Premiere of The Doors 1968 live concert at the Hollywood Bowl.
Facebook ate MySpace and spit it back up and bands realizing that have really spruced up their pages adding loads of content and info. Recommend.ly an online research page has some interesting statistics. Musicians and bands seem to have the most ‘likes’ or ‘fans’
According to a few posts on Facebook and Twitter, they played new songs, ‘which were generally described as fun, dance-y and groovy’, but so far no photo and no recording have surfaced as a strict no-phone-no-camera policy was reinforced at the entrance. Hey, according to someone ‘there was even a guy who had his phone thrown on the wall for trying to take a picture!!!’
I found these figures rather surprisingly low. The order of value even more confusing Who would ever imagine that selling headphones for $110 million bucks. All he had to do was swing a pen around for that wad. Poor Adele.
In a society that gives people awards for waking up it’s a sad thing that the nomination announcement warrants an hour of your life- let alone with your ears being assaulted by Maroon 5.
