After collaborating with Jay-Z, on the only track really worth listening from HOV's last record, Coldplay's Chris Martin will be jammin with Kanye West on West's upcoming Graduation disc. Martin has co-written and will sing on two songs, including the title track. Cant wait to hear this experiment.
The Smashing Pumpkins, well just 1/2 of the Pumpkins with two new players filling in for James Iha and D'Arcy, will be hitting the road this summer. After a bad week of gear being stolen, and forcing to push the release date of their latest disc, Billy Corgan and Co. will hit the road for festivals as well as week long theater dates across the U.S. The lead off single, "Tarantula," from the new record Zeitgeist will be hitting radio airwaves next week, while the album comes to stores July 10.
Check these out:
The Good, The Bad and The Queen- Live in DC (March 07)
The Arcade Fire- Live in New York (Feb 07)
Iron and Wine, Calexico- Live in DC

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.

Another reunion in '07 might be underway...After recently stating that Gorrillaz will release an instrumental only film soundtrack and have no future plans after, Damon Albarn is considering rejoining his former band mates in Blur. The idea of a reunion had come about with the upcoming release of member Graham Coxon's autobiography and while doing press tours promoting the book, he mentioned the idea. However it all falls onto the lap of Albarn at this point. In related news...Recently Blur Drummer Dave Rowntree was defeated in a London election.
Electro New Wave 80's band New Order (the guys that originally did "Blue Monday"), have broken up....anyone that herd their last recording is probably not surprised.
