VISITING ACT | Patterson Hood - Trucker on the Side: Patterson Hood sneaks in a special solo set :
"'I'm pretty comfortable up there,' says Hood. 'My stage fright would be more with talking with people than the actual playing part. It's pretty good, particularly right now; its not like I'm not warmed up, because we've played a lot of shows recently. My chops are in okay form. My weak link playing solo used to be my weakness as a guitar player. I wasn't as solid as I could have been. But I've improved. I'm going to play a lot of solo stuff from the first album, this new one, plus plenty of songs from the Truckers albums. I'll take some requests and do a little bit of everything.'"

This explains a lot...

Singing To Females Makes Male Birds' Brains Happy:

"ScienceDaily (Oct. 6, 2008) — The melodious singing of birds has been long appreciated by humans, and has often been thought to reflect a particularly positive emotional state of the singer. Researchers at the RIKEN Brain Science Institute in Japan have now demonstrated that this can be true. When male birds sang to attract females, specific 'reward' areas of their brain were strongly activated. Such strong brain activation resulted in a similar change in brain reward function to that which is caused by addictive drugs."

Good. Need to see some U.S. musicians do the same. Eff 'The Man'!

British pop stars form group to demand more power:

"LONDON - Some of Britain's biggest music stars announced Saturday they are banding together to demand greater control over their music in the digital age.

Radiohead, Robbie Williams and Kaiser Chiefs are among more than 60 founding members of the Featured Artists' Coalition.

The group says it wants musicians rather than record labels to retain control over the rights to their music. It says new technology is rapidly changing the music industry, and artists are often left out when their songs are distributed over the Internet or mobile phone networks."


Again, just on principle, I must hate this record and all that it stands for.

GNR's 'Chinese Democracy' Gets Release Date:

"More than a decade after its conception, Guns N' Roses' 'Chinese Democracy' will finally see the light of day before year's end, sources close to the situation confirm to Billboard. As first reported here, the set will be a Best Buy exclusive and will be available Sunday, Nov. 23, rather than the usual Tuesday."

This spring, soft drink manufacturer Dr Pepper offered to send a free can of the beverage to "everyone in America" (excluding ex-GNR members Slash and Buckethead) if "Chinese Democracy" were to arrive anytime during the calendar year 2008.

"We're waiting to hear about 'Chinese Democracy' just like all the other GNR fans," Dr Pepper VP of marketing Tony Jacobs tells Billboard. "But if the rumors are true, we're putting the Dr Pepper on ice."

What, this is like the 6 artist that had to tell McCain to cease and desist.

Foo Fighters Tell McCain: Stop Using Our Song:

"NEW YORK — Yet another band is complaining about John McCain's use of their song to promote his campaign. This time, it's the Foo Fighters."
