News Dump: Wednesday 6-22-11
The Bon Iver love fest this week continues over at NPR with an excellent interview. I suggest listening to the extended version.
Remember Monday’s News Dump when we posted a video of a messed up Amy Winehouse trying to perform a concert? Well according to Mashable, Winehouse’s European Tour has been canceled and her label, Universal Music Group, has removed the videos of the f@#ked up performer based on a copyright claim. At least Jim Morrison had an excuse for being a drunken buffoon, it was the 60′s!
The Rhinestone Cowboy himself, Glen Campbell, has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. The 75 year old will be performing the last of his live performances later this year. [via Rolling Stone]
Middle-age soccer mom soundtrack band Train reveal that they are coming out with a wine [Billboard] called Drops of Jupiter at their successful online wine club. This proves two things to me that I already thought:
- Train is a really f@#king boring band and have always been hacky as shit.
- The mainstream music industry really is going down the crapper. At least Wilco has a branded coffee and Sammy Hagar has tequilla; not soccer mom sex juice.
Jack White of Third Man Records appeared on The Colbert Report in a funny segment for Dr Pepper Presents StePhest Colbchella ’011: Rock You Like a Thirst-icane that is going on all this week. This is the first of a three part interview.
