Rob Stevenson’s back in the saddle again. After being canned from his post of Executive VP of Island Def Jam a few months ago, EMI’s bringing him in to be the new President of Virgin in the US. I believe that was Lee Trink’s old post. He’ll report to Nick Gatfield who’s the new President of A&R In North America, UK & Ireland (and Mars). Rob is known for signing The Killers, Fall Out Boy, Sum 41, The Bravery and A LOT of shitty bands. Many of his shitty bands were on his label/imprint Stolen Transmission through Universal. Rob was a total douche to me in my brief encounters with him and I was sort of happy to see him fired, mainly because I’m a little bitter and jaded towards the music industry but I digress. Just remember Rob, for every Fall Out Boy, there were at least five A Hero From A Thousand Paces! Good luck, fucker.

1. Miley Cyrus – Breakout (371,000)
Miley’s hotter than the Equator right now. Told ya so.

2. Sugarland – Love On The Inside (314,000)
Apparently hicks have learned how to download too and won’t buy music.

3. Mamma Mia! Soundtrack (168,000)
I think the same crowd bought the Sex and the City soundtrack. But people actually saw that movie.

4. Kid Rock – Rock N Roll Jesus (98,000)
I can’t believe that we still let Kid Rock get away with recording cover songs.

5. Lil Wayne – Tha Carter III (85,000)
I bet this would be larger if it weren’t for a lot of the returns.

6. Coldplay’s – Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends (75,000)
If it hasn’t happened to you already, these guys will nauseate you like U2.

7. Camp Rock Soundtrack (65,000)
I thought this was a porn movie’s soundtrack for a second.

8. Nas – Untitled (63,000)
I liked the original title better.

9. Now 28 Various Artists (37,000)
Remember when these Now CDs would debut at #1?

10. Taylor Swift – Beautiful Eyes (35,000)
If you can, marry her. now.

Other Notes:
13. Nine Inch Nails – The Slip (29,000)
Don’t Give Away Your Shit For Free, Trent!

28. One Day As A Lion – Self Titled (17,000)
Zach de la Rocha from Rage and ex-the Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore’s new project.. blah

32. Candlebox – Into the Sun (14,000)
This isn’t half bad. Everyone only wants to hear “You” and “Far Behind” though.

I got back last night and I was way too tired to post but I uploaded some videos and pics online. I saw The Foo Fighters at the Izod Center (you’ll always be continental airlines arena in my heart!) in East Rutherford NJ. The band was simply awesome. They played about 20 songs for over 2 hours. They had an acoustic stage where they played a few and those songs were great too. Dave, I think, started losing his voice slightly at the end but the music was great. Gaz from opening band Supercrap, I mean Supergrass sang the Who’s “Bargain” with them in the encore. Here are some crappy pics because my digital camera takes pics worse than it takes videos. Here’s the setlist and videos:

Let It Die

Cheer Up, Boys (Your Make Up Is Running)
