  • County Jail Guard goes to jail for smuggling hacksaw blades in Taco

    A county jail guard in Texas has been convicted of trying to help an inmate escape by smuggling hacksaw blades inside tacos. The San Antonio Express-News reports Alfred Casas was sentenced to two years in prison for one count of accepting a bribe, and ordered to serve probation for an additional bribery count. He was also ordered to pay $15,000 fine. Prosecutors say Casas made a deal with the inmate to smuggle him hacksaw blades in exchange for two bottles of Xanax pills, provided by the inmate’s girlfriend. Officials at the Bexar County Jail say the hacksaw blades were discovered in the inmate’s cell, along with bedsheets fashioned into rope, a window bar that had been cut through and a prison jumpsuit dyed to look like street clothes.

  • The Who 's Pete Townsend will be back w/ The Who!!

    After Roger Daltrey finishes his Tommy tour, The Who will go on the road again next year to perform Quadrophenia. Guitarist Pete Townshend wrote on his blog, "The reason I am not on the road with Roger is that this is entirely Roger's adventure, one that is bringing him great joy. I don't belong on this Tommy tour. I wish him well, sincerely, and I look forward to playing with Roger again doing Quadrophenia next year." Daltrey said in an interview with Rolling Stone last month that Townshend isn't touring with him this year because of his hearing problems, however, Townshend disputes that claim in the blog. "My hearing is actually better than ever," he wrote. "Because after a feedback scare at the O2 Indigo in December 2008 I am taking good care of it. I'm 66, I don't have perfect hearing, and if I listen to loud music or go to gigs I do tend to get tinnitus. DON'T WE ALL?"

  • The Who?

    In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Roger Daltrey says that while he is heading out on a solo tour this summer, he'd prefer it was a Who trek. However, "Pete [Townshend] is having terrible hearing problems at the moment. I've also had a voice scare. There's nobody I'd rather be on stage with than Pete. But equally, I don't want to be on stage with him destroying the last bit of his hearing. That would be completely foolish. He's a composer." Daltrey added that despite his differences over the years with Townshend, "behind the scenes we're the best of friends. We're like brothers. Not to say we get on with each other all the time, but if we were ever in trouble, you know that we'd both be there for each other. That's all that matters."

If you pile a lot of extra material and packaging and design work into a super-duper box set, there are people who will pay quite a lot for it, so you can budget it at a very high level and pump up the value." The re-issues are expected out in the fall, along with a larger box set of the band's "ZOO TV" era.

  • Monopoly anyone? How about an AC/DC & Metallica version?

  • Pink Floyd fans!! Here ya go

    As previously reported, the Pink Floyd catalog is getting a massive overhaul and reissue campaign from EMI that will begin on September 26, encompassing CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, digital formats, viral marketing, iPhone Apps and more. Drummer Nick Mason says a "mellowing with old age" is what caused he and bandmates David Gilmour and Roger Waters to warm up to the idea of the catalog overhaul. "It is a sea change from our point of view," Mason told Billboard.com. "We'd never put much thought into the idea of releasing incomplete or earlier versions of things, but I think the world has changed. One now looks at these things and realizes there really is interest and how things came about and what the early versions were and so on. We thought rather than just leave everything in the vaults, it might be worth bringing everything out and giving people a complete view of what we've done." Of course, the reissue campaign brings many questions of a full Pink Floyd reunion tour, and Mason said there are no plans for it, but he will never say never. "The long and short of it is, I live in hope. I'd love to actually do something together again," he explained. "All of us are open to invitations to do things; the only thing that would drive it would be some sense that... there's some particularly good reason to do it together rather than separately. Perhaps we're getting a bit older and more appreciative of just how much it can mean to our fanbase to see us together. I think we just have to wait and see."

  • Get the Doobies to the Greek!!

    On June 28, The Doobie Brothers Live At The Greek Theatre 1982 will be released on CD and DVD through Eagle Rock Entertainment. Billed as their "Farewell Tour," this live show was recorded on the final date of that tour in the band's hometown in Berkeley, CA. The concert included the surprise return of band co-founder Tom Johnston for the final two numbers, and during "Listen To The Music," original member John Hartman also joined the group as did former members Tiran Porter and Michael Hossack. It would prove to be the last onstage Doobie Brothers music for five years. The two-hour, 21-track DVD also includes five bonus songs cut from the original film of the event: "Little Darlin’ (I Need You)," "One Step Closer," "Dependin’ On You," "Real Love" and "No Stoppin’ Us Now," as well as interviews with the band and its manager.
