Morning Music Notes – Twitter Drama

Clarence Clemons passed away at the age of 69. The saxophonist from Bruce Sprucesteen’s E Street Band had a stroke from which he never recovered. Springsteen has stated “With Clarence at my side, my band and I were able to tell a story far deeper than those simply contained in our music. His life, his memory and his love will live on in that story and in our band.” No word on comments from Soprano’s Silvio Dante Steven Van Zandt. U2 and Coldplay did pay tribute to Clarence with comments on the weekend.

After his brief run in with the Grammar Police, 50 Cent (aka Fiddy, or Fif…??) has clarified his Twitter statements. However, the explanation is like the plot of Mulholland Drive, minus the lesbian sex scenes. Essentially, I have no idea when the album is coming up, but I don’t really care, and am just reporting the news. Or “Twitter Drama”, as it is being called by news outlets that are definitely not mine.

Extra, extra, the Beatles have just broken up! That is what my headline would read if my time machine didn’t require 14,000 AA batteries to take me back to 1970, when Paul McCartney’s quotes and stories about the Beatles break up would be relevant. However, those who are interested in the Beatles folklore might wish to given a read about the Twitter Drama demise from Paul’s eyes.

After the riots in Vancouver last Wednesday (over hockey – how Canadian!), singer Michael Bublé has decided to retire fund a campaign to catch the hooligans. No word on how exact the funds will be used, or whether or not Bublé will secretly be lining his pockets. The man made it to #5 on the Forbes entertainers list by doing financially smart things after all.

Noel Gallagher from Beady Eye Oasis got married over the weekend. Brother, and front man of post-apocalyptic-Oasis band Beady Eye, Liam, did not attend as he is on tour. He is actually in Toronto tonight. Sadly, no Oasis songs will be played, and I will not be attending.

Amy Winehouse was booed off the stage in her comeback gig this past weekend. She appeared drunk, confused, out of tune, and out of key. This sounds exactly like an Amy Winehouse concert – why were people booing again?

Lady Gaga is bald! Get your minds out of the gutter – she shaved her head. Actually, she didn’t even do that – she wore a skull cap. She looks eerily like Maynard James Keenan from Tool though, minus the awesome song catalogue. Now why is this news? I’m not quite sure, but my fingers won’t stop hitting the typewriter keyboard.
