Yes I know that your friend in Sales already sent this to you but all my friends in Sales got fired. So I just grab this from online. More people “copped” Nas’s new untitled album over Lil Wayne. “Copped” means bought, or grabbed, or got a copy of. I learned that when I was at this one label where I was told to “not sound so white” so the urban messageboard users would think that I was one of them. Labels are so smart. Here are the Top 10 Albums of the Week.
Slash once used to play for amazing singers like Michael Jackson. Now he’ll play with anyone who’ll throw him a quarter. This is why Velvet Revolver ended. Slash has no heart. It’s not that Scott Weiland was a douche or that Duff McKagan’s done drugs that don’t even have names yet. This past Saturday Slash played Sweet Child O Mine with Fergie.. yes.. the lady lumps london bridgin Fergie.
Chad Smith recently told Rhythm Magazine that the Red Hot Chili Peppers are not breaking up and instead are taking some much needed time off. Anthony Kiedis will spend the time banging models, John Frusciante will make god-awful music about water and Flea will proceed to dispel rumors that he’s going to play in Jane’s Addiction. Chad’s also been working on a new supergroup called Chickenfoot with Joe Satriani and former Van Halenites Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony. Which would …
This fall, Avenged Sevenfold and Buckcherry will be touring with Shinedown and Saving Abel. If you were wrongly accused of being gay (not that there’s anything wrong with that!) and had to prove otherwise (and you couldn’t have sex with their sister in front of them), you’d be going to one of these shows.
At the Summercase Festival this weekend, Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols was involved in an altercation with Kele Okereke of Bloc Party and possibly some of the dudes from the Foals (who I’ve never heard of). I wasn’t there but I blame it on Rotten because he was a douche to me one time when I bumped into him in the Village. F U Johnny Rotten! Okereke allegedly asked Rotten about his old band Public Image Ltd (post Sex Pistols circa ’78) reuniting. Editor’s note: Old band names used to really suck Apparently, you don’t ask an old man about his old bands.
Miley Cyrus played the Good Morning America Concert Series on Friday morning and they aired her interview from it today. She was amazing. She can’t dance a lick but she can sing. I’d rather have her on stage with a club foot and not messing up the songs than lip synching trying to do a somersault (wait.. maybe I’d go with the latter). Chris Martin from Coldplay even gushed about Miley(eww PERV!). Here are all the videos (stop salivating.. she won’t be making the dirty movie.. or will she?)
These guys are an awesome power-pop-punk rock band from NY. I see them as a cooler, more alternative rock New Found Glory (everyone’s guilty pleasure). They’ve gotten some press and they’re playing some bigger shows. They have a big gig at the Knitting Factory in NY on August 17th. You should go buy a ticket and check it out.. unless you’re a communist. Then you should buy two tickets. Click on the name/pic for more info..
The Vines have a new album out (July 22nd) and Craig Nicholls talked to the Herald about it. I have a few videos of the new songs for all of my fans out there before they go to Chipotle for a Ã¢â‚¬Å“high-class meal.Ã¢â‚¬Â Enjoy.
