While Beastie Boys are no longer since the untimely death of Adam "MCA" Yauch in 2012, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz spoke to NME about if he and Mike D. will ever work again. Ad-Rock said, "Adam started the band, so we couldn't do anything without him. At some point we'll do something."

As if the world needs more reason to realize Dave Grohl is the man. A dying Foo Fighters fan in Australia was just given VIP tickets and passes to see the band in L.A. later this year thanks to Grohl. Ken Powell, a huge Foo Fighters fan, was diagnosed with melanoma 14 years ago and in 2009, it was reported as being fatal. After Grohl heard the news of Powell, he sent him a photo saying "Hi Ken" and the passes to the gig. Powell is now raising money to get to L.A. for the show, you can read more about it and donate HERE.  

Speaking to NME, Blur's Graham Coxon has said that the band's upcoming album, The Magic Whip, was a way to "make amends" with each other. Coxon said, "Damon and I have an increased respect for each other because of this record, and we're not ashamed to let each other know about that increased respect. But what we also have a lot of history, and our friendship – like any friendship between two people in a band together – has had to go through a lot. It’s been put to the test, and we’ve often let each other down. This record was a way of saying, ‘Sorry for being such a pain in the arse for the last 20 years.'"
