Rolling Stones Postpone Tour In Wake of L’WRen Scott Suicide

It has been an understandably rough week for The Rolling Stones, and for Mick Jagger in particular, who is still reeling from the news of the apparent suicide of long-time girlfriend L’Wren Scott. In the wake of the tragedy, the band have announced the postponement of seven shows along their current Australia-New Zealand tour, extending into April. Scott, a model-turned-stylist for the stars, was found hanged in her Manhattan apartment […]

Two Dead, 23 Injured in Hit-and-Run at SXSW

Shortly after midnight on Thursday morning, during a routine DWI check set up by Austin Police, a suspected drunk driver broke ranks, wove through traffic, drove at high speeds the wrong way down a one-way street to avoid pursuit, broke through a police barricade and plowed into a large number of pedestrians who were exiting a music venue as part of the South-By-Southwest (SXSW) Music Festival. Two minutes later, two […]

Missing SXSW? Stream (Some) Live Performances on VEVO

South By Southwest (SXSW), Austin’s world-renowned “indie” music/film/interactive festival, is growing larger and more dominant every year. While the music portion of the festival has been drawing hundreds of indie bands (and a few bigger acts) every year, this year’s debut iTunes Music Festival at SXSW is putting the event squarely in the mainstream spotlight, with scheduled shows from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Pitbull, Soundgarden and Coldplay, among many […]


U2 Invisible

U2 Reportedly Push Album, Tour Back to 2015

There was never actually a release date set for the new U2 album—hell, we didn’t even know the name of it—so the label insists this is not a “delay.”  But as Billboard reported exclusively yesterday, several sources are confirming that the album release and tour are being pushed to next year. No official statement has been made thus far, but it’s hard to believe this was part of the plan.  […]


KISS

KISS Decline to Perform at Rock Hall of Fame

(editorial)

For the second time in three years, the annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction has generated controversy and drama due to questions over band lineup.  Two years ago, it was Axl Rose and Guns N’ Roses. This year, it’s KISS. Rather than just regurgitate the news reports, let’s put the thing in plain English as best we can.  KISS will be inducted this year into the Rock Hall […]


Cee Lo Green

Cee Lo Green Announces Departure from “The Voice”

As the premiere of The Voice Season 6 approaches, we already knew that Cee Lo Green wouldn’t be in his chair—he and Christina Aguilera have been rotating seasons with Shakira and Usher for the past couple of years.  What we didn’t know until this week is that Cee Lo isn’t planning to return at all, making him the first coach on the successful talent show to abdicate officially. The “Forget […]


Pussy Riot

Video Shows Cossacks Whipping Pussy Riot Members in Sochi

Russian feminist punk collective Pussy Riot seem more determined than ever to use their newfound worldwide renown to bring negative publicity to the Russian government. A  video posted by Sky News shows Cossack militia disrupting an attempted protest by Pussy Riot members during the Winter Olympics in Sochi. As the video portrays, the members in their signature colored masks were just beginning to perform when the Cossacks (who are employed […]

Devo’s Bob Casale Dead at 61

Guitarist Bob Casale, who started Devo with his brother Gerald in 1972 and played on every Devo album, died suddenly of heart failure on Feb. 17, as confirmed by his brother. He was 61. Gerald Casale released a statement concerning Bob’s passing: “He was my level-headed brother, a solid performer and talented […]


The Beatles

The Beatles’ Grammy Salute Does Justice to Fab Four

Sunday night on CBS, The Recording Academy hosted a special “Grammy salute” concert event called “The Beatles: The Night That Changed America,” in commemoration of 50 years to the day that The Beatles first performed on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964. Let’s be honest here: to ask a bunch of current musical celebrities to cover The Beatles in front of the two surviving Beatles is a daunting prospect in […]


X-Factor

“The X-Factor” Cancelled in the U.S.

Simon Cowell will reportedly return to UK version of the show

After The X-Factor tried in vain for three seasons to capture a consistent audience, the executives at Fox have decided not to try a fourth time.  The network has announced that Simon Cowell’s answer to American Idol will not return to the lineup this fall, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter. Because the talent competition had been largely successful in the UK (yielding such popular acts as One Direction), Fox […]


Pussy Riot

Pussy Riot Distance Themselves from Released Inmates

Anonymous open letter stresses Tolokonnikova and Alyokhina are no longer with the band

The whole Pussy Riot thing just got a little more interesting. Even as former Pussy Riot members and released Russian prisoners Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina are in the midst of a human rights media tour of the United States—which has included appearances on The Colbert Report and at an Amnesty International concert—the feminist punk collective that first put the pair in the global spotlight are now attempting to distance […]

Justin Bieber Charged In Toronto for Alleged Assault

Aaaand the news for Justin Bieber just keeps on being bad. As CNN and other news outlets report, less than a week after the pop singer was arrested in Miami Beach for DUI and resisting arrest after allegedly drag racing in a rented Lamborghini, he turned himself in to Toronto authorities on Wednesday in relation to an assault charge stemming from a reported altercation with a limo driver in December.

Trent Reznor

Grammy Producer Says “Sorry” to Trent Reznor (Well, Sort Of)

At the close of Sunday night’s Grammy Awards telecast, the much-hyped finale that brought together Queens of the Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails, David Grohl and Lindsay Buckingham got the short end of the proverbial stick when the show’s producers decided to end the already-overtime telecast a minute and a half before the end of the song. Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor soon responded with an angry blurb on Twitter: […]
