Tonight, a buddy of mine and I will be going to the Foo Fighters show at Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford, NJ. If you’re going and have weapons, alcohol, weed, pet rocks or anything else cool, lemme know. I’ll probably wanna steal your goods. I hope to have an update after the show tonight.

Motley Crue are playing a show in Vegas on Friday night which you can watch for free online at 12:30AM EST/9:30PM PST by registering at deeprockdrive.com. Because I know that all my fellow pervs will be home watching Letterman or Adult Swim because they can no longer party hardcore. I’ll try to give ya’ll plenty of updates on Friday so you don’t feel lonely while you’re watching “Dr. Feelgood”

Nine Inch Nails launched their tour this past weekend in Pemberton, British Columbia, Canada. I had to look up Pemberton. I don’t think that it comes up on Google Maps. I think that you have to make a left at Toronto, drive 2000 miles west and make a right everytime you see a moose or a Nickelback bumper sticker. Here are some vids and the setlist:

Atlantic Records yesterday announced the launch of this new software called Fanbase thats supposed to be an all-in-one program for a band’s fans. This software incorporates Meebo for fans of the band/artist to chat with each other, tour dates, music videos and more. Unfortunately, the program is run through Adobe so it’ll probably slow down your computer until you decide to uninstall it. Simple Plan is the first band to use Fanbase. It should be rolling out soon for Shinedown, Pretty Ricky and T.I. (Gotta love the tip!).

I had free tickets to this show and I sorta wanted to go but I didn’t at the same time. My friends aren’t really into Filter and I’m not sure that anyone really is. Like, you could go see Nine Inch Nails if you like this type of shit. Filter’s always been alright, good, but never great. Did anyone really miss them? I like the old hits. In fact, I was once in one of their music videos but that’s a different story. here are some dude’s videos from the show last night:

Welcome To The Fold

Take A Picture

Can’t You Trip Like I Do

Hey Man Nice Shot

Soldiers of Misfortune

The Duke Spirit are this pretty cool alt-indie-garage rock band from England. They were on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Tuesday night. Here’s them playing The Step and The Walk on Leno:

The Denver Post sat down with Taylor Hawkins for a little interview and preview of the Foo Fighters shows at Red Rocks which ended up getting postponed because Dave Grohl hurt his vocals screaming about his rider (Just Kidding. He really was sick though). Taylor says that the first album is his favorite because it was “simple and fun” and he was a fan of the band back then. He says even though the songwriting’s progressed (partially because Dave can play the piano now (watch out Trent Reznor!), he still considers the Foo to bea “garage rock band” which I guess I can see with all these crazy jams they do lately like this one:

I remember my “rockstar” days where I’d jam out for hours, I mean minutes on end.

The Rolling Stones, the oldest and most famous rock band in the world (The Gypsy Kings are a close second) left EMI to go to Universal. All future releases under the Universal umbrella will be under Polydor. The Stones sure know how to make news. They sign a new deal and they pimp-slapped Lil Wayne in the same day. What’s next Mick?

Which day of the week do rappers/hip-hoppers/shot callers/ballerz/jiggaz/nba players sample and steal music from past work? The answer is…. EVERYDAY. Lil Wayne, who has the #2 album in the country right now, has been caught with stealing from The Rolling Stones. He didn’t think that anyone would catch on (or care) that his song “Playing with Fire” sorta sounds like The Rolling Stones “Play with Fire”. When I say sorta sounds like, I mean the music’s very similar and Lil Wayne didn’t even change the lyrics much. Doesn’t Lil Wayne know that you don’t mess with the Stones? You can’t sample anything from them. Ask Richard Ashcroft and The Verve. They had a hit song Bittersweet Symphony and made no money off of it. The Rolling Stones have so much control that you can’t even say “I can’t get no… satisfaction” out loud. If you do, you owe Mick Jagger five bucks for everytime you say it. No joke. Check out Lil Wayne’s track and then the Stones.
