David Gray Interview

I don’t normally put links to other stories on the site but I thought about posting interviews that I think some might be interested in. There is so much news and interviews out there, I think in order to offer more info on the site, I’ll throw some other stuff out there. So if I see a cool one, I’ll post a few words on it then send you a link to the full interview. Hope you guys like.

Do you have any tools you need around you when you’re writing songs?

“Just a guitar or piano. I generally write the rhythm and the chords first, then find the melody, then the lyrics – I write in that order 90% of the time. The music is generally first, then I have to find the lyrics to fit.”

LMFAO Handed Lawsuit

Aww damn … right before LMFAO walked into the American Idol studio they were served with at $7 million lawsuit by their former management company Rpm. Rpm claims that after they signed them and they got huge, they were trying to be cut from their contract. The suit also claims that both of the guys in LMFAO took some of the Rpm employees and paid them to be their managers.

Sounds pretty crazy. Good luck with that!

Ted Nugent and the Secret Service!

“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

So I did some research on this because I wasn’t following Ted Nugent and his comments. I knew he was pretty hardcore with the NRA, hunting etc. That’s cool.

At one of his concerts, he held up an AK-47 and said “Hey, suck on this, Obama.”

Well he had to meet with the Secret Service over this past weekend to clear some of the issues. Apparently both sides left pretty happy.

“Good, solid, professional meeting concluding that I have never made any threats of violence towards anyone. The meeting could not have gone better.”

Petty’s Stolen Guitars Are Recovered

Last week, five vintage guitars owned by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers were stolen from a Culver City soundstage in L.A. Petty thought it was a good idea to post it on Twitter and offer a $7,500 reward. They were listed as a 1967 12-string Rickenbacker, a Gibson SG TV Junior, a Fender Broadcaster, a 1967 Epiphone Sheridan, and a blue Dusenberg. One man has been arrested.

Snoop is putting out a songbook of his lyrics…..printed entirely on hemp seed paper. Plus the books spine is held together with a match striking surface and of course, the pages are perforated.

Slim Loris – Low

Oh boy, I found another great song/group thanks to James at Independent Music Promotions.

Right when I heard the drums in the beginning I knew I was on a ride. I love his voice as it fits the music perfectly. These are the kind of bands that I wish more people could find and appreciate as much as I do! I love the hints of Doobie Brothers and CCR. But have a listen for yourself. Check more out HERE
