Comments
Gibson bids a fond farewell to country legend Porter Wagoner. The singer died Sunday, October 28 in Nashville at the age of 80. This news comes just a few weeks after it was announced that Wagoner had been hospitalized with lung cancer. A frequenter of the Grand Old Opry stage, Wagoner is credited for launching the career of Dolly Parton, and is himself behind a string of country hits in the '60s. Most always decked out in a rhinestone suit, Wagoner will continue to shine brightly in the memories of fans worldwide.

Kid Rock’s Rock and Roll Jesus album racked up 172,000 sales in its first week of release, bumping Bruce Springsteen’s Magic from the top of the charts to give the Heartland rock-rap fusioneer his first No. 1 debut. Less than a week later, the star — born Robert James Ritchie — and his entourage were celebrating a typically raucous Atlanta concert at a local Waffle House in the early hours of a Sunday morning when a patron reportedly approached them and made disparaging remarks about a woman who was accompanying Kid.Events quickly escalated, with the “party” spilling into the parking lot.

Total Tangent: Check out the London Souls doing Freddie King's "Going Down," which was actually by Moloch, at Sin-é in New York City, but the later one on Attorney Street, not the one on St. Mark’s Place that Jeff Buckley used to play

I was looking for a good link for Freddie King in the new "Les Paul: More than a Rocker" story when I discovered this link to the London Souls—from New York, of course—blowing the roof off the unfortunately-now-closed Sin-é with a fiery version of “Going Down.” It was the second incarnation of the club, which first opened in the late-80s on St. Mark’s Place and Avenue A, and became a refuge for the new wave of young Irish immigrants, touring Irish artists like U2, Van Morrison, and Sinead O’Connor, and the home base for a young singer-songwriter named Jeff Buckley, who would pack the tiny café with a hushed crowd who couldn’t believe the power of his voice and songs. The original Sin-é closed after a few years, and reopened in the late-90s in a new location in the very low and very east section of the Lower East Side, and struggled for a few years, fighting against the encroaching luxury condos that were replacing the bodegas and garages on the block.

Michael Dorf is up to his old tricks again: producing spectacular multi-artist events in homage to one legendary artist. Dorf, who founded the Knitting Factory in 1987, has put on four thus far: “The Music of Joni Mitchell,” “The Music of Bob Dylan,” “The Music of Bruce Springsteen,” and “The Music of Elton John.” Held at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall, the events have been a resounding success with proceeds going to organizations like Music for Youth. His latest effort is perhaps his most ambitious.

On November 20, U2 will mark the 20th anniversary of their fifth album Joshua Tree with a massive re-release of the album in four different formats: a digitally re-mastered album, a two-CD set in a hardback case, a limited edition two-CD/1-DVD collectible box set, and a double vinyl package. The second CD in the double disc set is said to feature b-sides and rarities, while the DVD will include footage of U2's concert on July 4, 1987 and of Outside, It's America, the U2 documentary, also filmed in '87, that captured U2's evolution from Dublin's favorite band to the world's favorite band.

But a recent statement from guitarist Jimmy Page has changed all that, reading, "The addition of the digital option will better enable fans to obtain our music in whichever manner that they prefer."
