Huffingtonpost - Phil Ramone and Danielle Evin: Dog Ears Music: Volume Eighty:

"Drive-By Truckers is the Southern alt-country rock ensemble hailing from Athens, Georgia. Founded in the mid-'90s, the unit includes Mike Cooley, Patterson Hood, Brad Morgan, John Neff, Shonna Tucker, and (on occasion) Spencer Oldham or Jay Gonzalez. With over a dozen releases, the band keeps a consistent and refreshing integrity. 'Opening Act,' from Drive-By Truckers' 2008 release Brighter Than Creation's Dark, will lull you to think. Currently touring."

Wisconsin court praises drunken concert goer:
"An Illinois teen knew he was too drunk to drive home after a Dave Matthews Band concert south of Milwaukee. So he fell asleep in his car, only to be awoken by a state trooper. Travis Peterson, 19, of Dixon, Ill., said even though he told the officer he was drunk and sleeping it off, the trooper ordered him to leave because the lot was being cleared.

Once out of the parking lot, Peterson was arrested for drunken driving. He was subsequently found guilty and ordered to spend 60 days in jail."

Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant awarded CBE | Music |

"Robert Plant was honoured as a CBE by Prince Charles in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace on Friday, letting the former Led Zeppelin singer finally one-up guitarist Jimmy Page.

While Page is a member of the Order of the British Empire, Plant now outranks him with his new title of Commander of the British Empire.

Plant didn't seem to think this really mattered. 'If we can remember each other's phone number at this time in life it's a miracle,' he said. 'We're still good friends, we both enjoy a rather dark sense of humour that comes, I think, from being on the wrong side of the tracks for all those wild years.'"

Collapse in illegal sharing and boom in streaming brings music to executives' ears | Music | The Guardian:

"The picture may be more complex than a simple shift from filesharing to streaming, with people sharing music in new ways such as via bluetooth technology, on blogs, and through copying, also known as ripping content from friends' MP3 devices.

Even though users of streaming services are not necessarily buying more music, the industry benefits by learning more about fans' tastes. Steve Purdham, CEO and founder of We7, a music streaming service and download store, said: 'They may not buy an album, though they have that opportunity, but you can sell them tour tickets and a T-shirt of their favourite band.'"
