A few odds and ends today as we gear up for the Holidays:

dbts : Message: [BT/MP3] Party for Adam & Wendy Musick (Southern Bitch, w/ members of DBT et al):
"'Athens music is losing some good ones: Adam & Wendy Musick of
Southern Bitch are moving away any day now, taking over their family's
farm in Virginia. Kimberly and Brad Morgan (of The Everloving Band and
Drive-By Truckers respectively) had a few musician friends over to
play songs as a farewell, and record it for a keepsake. We thought
some fans might enjoy it too.

Chuck Bradburn (Southern Bitch), Brad Morgan, Wendy Musick and John C.
Stubblefield (Lucero) perform along with the lead singers listed above.'

Some older dude with a black beard walked up and said, 'I'm going to have to give you a citation ... for not partying hard enough!' I was so relieved that he wasn't going to send us to jail, I paid him $10 for a bumper sticker."

Slash On Stealing His First Top Hat, Becoming Fashion Sensation:

"The first sign of a true rock star? When a man named Saul Hudson changes his name to Slash... and it sticks. The second? When said rock star puts two stolen items together and instantly creates a fashion sensation. The former lead guitarist for Guns N' Roses (now with Velvet Revolver) recently chronicled his rise to rock stardom in his eponymous book Slash. I spoke with the guitar legend about how and why he developed his signature style:"
