Ice-T and Melle Mel Is Unimpressed!

Both Ice-T and Melle Mel was at the European premier of Ice-T’s directorial debut for ‘Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap’ and they had shit to say.

Ice-T said he was unimpressed with today’s hip hop artists saying “It’s just pop. You’re not going to get anything as raw as what we heard before.”

Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel went on to say “The younger guys don’t look as good as us! They definitely don’t have our skills and that’s what the art of rap is.”

Damn fella’s tell us how you really feel.

It’s been 4 years since the Spice Girls have performed together (should be longer) but it looks like they are back, to perform at the London 2012 Olympic closing ceremony. Looks like they’ll be singing two songs with one of them being “Wannabe”.

Music Quote TidBit – Jerry Garcia

“… We have quite a large area, and that makes it more fun for us — certainly more satisfying, because it doesn’t restrict us to one particular idea or one particular style. The result, I think, is pretty interesting … we don’t expect to make a fortune at it or ever be popular or famous or worshipped or hit The Ed Sullivan Show or the circuses or the big top. As long as we can play, we’ll play, regardless of what it’s for, who it’s for or anything. It’s fun for us — that’s the important thing.”

Lightning Strikes At Festival-Injurys

This is just nuts. Over in Leipzig, Germany where the ‘With Full Force’ festival was happening, a lightning bolt crashed down and injured 51 people enjoying the music. The festival had Machine Head, Soulfly, Children of Bodom, Flogging Molly, and other bands. The same storm moved on in Germany and killed three women, seriously injured another and another died in her car when it was crushed by a tree.
