Just when you think country megastar Kenny Chesney couldn’t get any bigger, he clobbers another record. Last month, the Les Paul-lovin’ guitarist, singer, and songwriter’s single “Never Wanted Nothin’ More” flew up the chart quicker than any of his other hits thus far, and, to top the cake, his most recent single “Don’t Blink” debuted at No. 16, the highest debut for a single ever recorded on the Billboard Country Singles chart. And the kudos don’t stop there: Pollstar recently dubbed Chesney’s Flip Flop Summer tour the biggest tour in country music this year.

If you were lucky, you got the “Hilly wave.” As in: Hilly Kristal waving you into CBGBs. You didn’t feel anointed; it wasn’t Hilly’s way of saying you were one of the “cool people.” It was simply his way of saying, “Hey, I know you’re broke. It doesn’t matter. Pay me back whenever.” To Hilly, if you were a fan of music-and Hilly could spot the true fans, just like he could spot the bands bound for greatness-he’d wave you in. Or he’d tell the bartender to slide you a beer. He was good people. Really good people.

Velvet Revolver are scheduled to stop Wednesday in Minneapolis-St. Paul, where they’ll host a very special charity event, in addition to headlining a performance at the Xcel Energy Center. In honor of drummer Matt Sorum’s brother Daniel, who passed away earlier this year at age 11 from brain stem cancer, the fundraising event will be held at the Fine Line Music Café (318 1st Avenue North, Minneapolis) after Velvet Revolver’s show. Proceeds from the event will go to the Daniel J. Sorum Memorial Scholarship Fund, which will benefit students at the school he attended: The Willmar Community Christian School. Tickets for this VIP event—which will include a silent auction with items from Velvet Revolver and tour mates Alice in Chains—will be sold for $100 at the door and next to the Velvet Revolver merch booth at the Xcel Energy Center earlier in the evening. Doors for the benefit open at 11:30 p.m. For more details, visit www.velvetrevolver.com. —Jaan Uhelszki

Queen guitarist Brian May hasn’t just been sitting home waiting for his royalty checks; instead he has been hard at work to get his doctorate in astronomy. The 60-year old musician—who abandoned his studies to pursue a musical career, turned in a 48,000-word paper called "Radical Velocities in the Zodiacal Dust Cloud" last month to London's Imperial College, granting him a category two pass, and guaranteeing that he will officially be handed his PhD from the college at a ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall next year.

Morrissey Will Mope Alone

Yes, you heard right, Morrissey has turned down a $75 million dollar offer for a Smiths reunion tour. The deal was that the old Moper only needed to appear with Johnny Marr, but not with estranged members Andy Rourke or Mike Joyce. If the deal had been made, the reconstituted Smiths would have played 50 concerts in 2008 and 2009. When Gibson.com caught up with the ineffable, unflappable raconteur a while back and asked him, if there could ever be a road back to Mr. Marr, if only as compatriots, Morrissey answered without missing a beat, "Too much has happened really, and in actual truth, we don’t actually like each other."
