Rolling Stones tour grossed more than $500 mln:

"NASHVILLE (Billboard) - The final tally on the Rolling Stones' two-year world tour is in and it topped a half billion -- making it the top grossing trek in history. The staggering total -- $558,255,524, to be exact -- was accumulated between August 21, 2005, and August 26, when the 'Bigger Bang' tour wrapped at the O2 arena in London after a second European leg."

Mississippi Delta: Birthplace of the blues:

"MORGAN CITY, Mississippi (AP) -- Legendary bluesman Robert Johnson's death has been linked to a jealous husband, the supernatural and pneumonia. So it's unsurprising that there are three separate graves bearing his name in the rural Mississippi Delta. I'm looking for one of those graves now during a drive through towns like Greenwood and Itta Bena."

Hipster doofus hate.

Sting tops list of worst lyricists


Aye!-Tunes: File Sharer Must Pay $222,000:

"In the first lawsuit over file sharing to make it to court, a jury ordered a woman who record labels claimed illegally shared songs to pay the labels $222,000."

Hey fella,
That's wicked news. A new DBT album is always something to look forward to. I've pretty much done wore out Blessing and a Curse. Sweet.
That other band Cross Canadian Ragweed sounds wicked. Gonna have to track that down too.
