Foo Fighters Plan Weekend Facebook Gig, People You Haven’t Thought Of In Years Will Watch

Details here on what I believe is Facebook’s first online concert.

Biscuits Alive?

Yesterday it was reported here, and everywhere that Chuck Biscuits had died. Throat cancer said the reports. Turns out it was a hoax. I don’t think the legendary Circle Jerks, Black Flag, DOA, Social Distortion and Danzig drummer had anything to do with it, but we have much yet to learn.

Bonus Coverage. Let’s celebrate life!

Ledger Directed Video Surfaces

Before his death Heath Ledger helmed a clip for Aussie rapper N’fa.

Bonus Coverage:

We Know That Death Sells… It Pays Too

Michael Jackson has earned $72 Million whilst in his gold coffin.

Lady Gaga Going Bald

She’s including locks of her hair with her new album. That’s disgusting.

New Guantanomo Torture Music

I heard The Red Hot Chili Peppers were blasted at the detainees. Anyway the band is working on a new new album. I’m sure the RIAA is mulling a lawsuit against the prisoners for not paying a licensing fee.

The National Team With The Breeders

Sounds interesting… Not two bands I’d expect to work together.

Bonus Coverage. Damn I love The National:

Lydon Announces PIL Reunion Dates

They’re all in the UK. I’d be shocked if there were more than a handful on this side of the pond.

Bonus Coverage. Back in my Seattle days the story going around town was that Lydon wrote this tune after Mudhoney were mean to him.

Closer Than You Know, Love Each Other So… Androgynous

Adam Lambert does a Muse song.

Bonus Coverage:

May Want To Watch From The Back

Los Campesinos! Tweeted that they all have swine flu, but will continue to play. Yikes.
