Amy Winehouse Documentary

Well you knew it was coming. Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Asif Kapadia and Universal Music are working together to bring us Amy Winehouse’s life and career.

“This is an incredibly modern, emotional and relevant film that has the power to capture the zeitgeist and shine a light on the world we live in in a way that very few films can,” said Kapadia.

I feel like this movie’s going to be a mess….much like she was.

Peter Murphy Arrested!

We haven’t heard much from the ex-Bauhaus singer but he’s in the news today. He pleaded not guilty to hit and run and driving under the influence of drugs and possession. Oh Peter what were you thinking. So he hits a car, drove around it and left the scene. The other driver was injured. Apparently Peter was very confused and couldn’t even recall the day and time when they spoke to him. What did they find….Crystal Meth. Damn, tough times for Mr. Goth!

Al Jourgensen Collapses Onstage

Last Saturday night Al Jourgensen of Ministry collapsed onstage during a concert in Paris.  He was sent to the hospital where he was diagnosed with “full-system collapse due to extreme dehydration and heat exhaustion intensified by the lack of ventilation on stage at the venue.”

He’s cancelled a few shows but promised “I will make it up to you, somehow. I love Paris, I love the Parisian people. I’m so sorry …but, shit happens and the shit hit the fan for me last night.”

He did consider retiring from Ministry for health reasons and has said “For the last four tours, I’ve been puking up blood.  When I’m at home, I don’t drink or anything like that. But when you’re on tour, everything’s crazy. I never said anything about it because I just thought that was part of getting old and going on a rock tour – you puke up blood!”
