  1. In addition to an upcoming documentary and a new studio album of all original material on the way, it seems like the Foo Fighters have something else in store: a full-length vinyl of cover songs.

    The record, which is to be called Medium Rare, will feature the Foo Fighter’s renditions of songs from groups like Cream, Pink Floyd, and the Ramones.

    The album will be released on April 16th as a limited-edition vinyl for Record Store Day, an event that celebrates independent record stores.

    The tracks for the upcoming release will be as follows:

    01. Band On The Run (Paul McCartney & Wings)

    02. I Feel Free (Cream)

    03. Life of Illusion (Joe Walsh)

    04. Young Man Blues (Mose Allison)

    05. Bad Reputation (Thin Lizzy)

    06. Darling Nikki (Prince)

    07. Down In The Park (Gary Numan)

    08. Baker Street (Gerry Rafferty)

    09. Danny Says (Ramones)

    10. Have A Cigar (Pink Floyd)

    11. Never Talking To You Again (Hüsker Dü)

    12. Gas Chamber (Angry Samoans)

    13. This Will Be Our Year (The Zombies)

    While it may be the first time you ever hear the Foo Fighters play some of these songs, the band has been known to play a few of them live in the past.

  2. While heavy metal music might be renowned for its air of theatricality, Lars Ulrich has taken that quality a step further, signing up for an acting role in a new Nicole Kidman pic.

    NYMag.com is reporting that the Metallica drummer has been cast in HBO’s upcoming feature Hemingway and Gellhorn, which alongside Ulrich and Kidman, will also star Clive Owen. The TV movie chronicles the marriage between Ernest Hemmingway and war correspondent Martha Gellhorn. Ulrich will play the role of Dutch documentarian Joris Ivens.

  3. "The success of Dark Side of the Moon brought previously unknown wealth to all four members of the band; Richard Wright and Roger Waters bought large country houses, and Nick Mason became a collector of upmarket cars.[99] Some of the profits were invested in the production of Monty Python and the Holy Grail." - wiki

  4. I saw PJ Harvey friday night. She mainly played songs from her new album: Let England Shake, which is a collection of decent song regarding England, worth a listen!

    A few tracks from 'White Chalk' and some classics like 'Down by the water' and 'C'mon Billy' were also played.

    In all quite a good and variable show. However PJ didn't say a single word in between the songs. You could only hear her voice while she was singing. Just when I started worrying if she had lost her voice and was play-backing, she said 'Thank you so much' and left the stage, for the show was over.

    Now I assume this was intentionally (the silence), creating some sort of strange atmosphere. 30 seconds of silence between songs.

    Personally I go to live concerts to get that little bit extra from the artists: a joke, an anecdote, a new solo, a unheard song,..

    This time I only had the feeling like I was sitting in a big room, listening to a compilation disc.
