Quick News

Pink Floyd has come together again...ok maybe not, just really wishful thinking. All four living members of the band paid tribute to late member Syd Barrett, who passed away last year. Everyone of the existing members David Gilmore, drummer Nick Mason and keyboard player Rick Wright took the stage together. While Rodger Waters decided to play solo and refused to join his former band mates...kind of odd to say the least. Damon Albarn, Chrissie Hynde and Robyn Hitchcock also performed at the tribute show which took play May 10 in London.

Also on the same night in London, guitar aficionado and tour-de-force Prince was brutally attacked on stage by a female fan. She jumped on stage while he was performing and tackled the Purple One himself down to the ground. She was quickly detained.

In non-music or whats going on in London news...NBC has officially pulled the plug on my favorite TV show on basic cable, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. After months of speculation, they have yanked the Aaron Sorkin show from its network. Yet, for the Studio 60 fans out there, the show is coming to DVD this summer as well as the remaining episodes set to air May 24.
