Drivin' n' Cryin', Members of R.E.M. and others pay tribute to Buren Fowler

Apr 07, 2014 -- 12:03pm

A couple of weeks ago I posted about the unfortunate passing of former Drivin' n" Cryin' guitarist Buren Fowler passing away. Buren was also guitar tech/2nd guitar live for R.E.M.. Over the weekend a tribute concert for Buren was held at The 40 Watt Club in Athens, Ga. Here is a video of R.E.M.'s Mike Mills joining DnC on stage to do "(Don't Go Back To) Rockville". 

R.E.M.'s Mike Mills breaks the news that Letterman will retire in 2015

Apr 04, 2014 -- 1:31pm

Last night David Letterman annouced on his show that in 2015 he is going to retire. Dave has hosted "The Late Show" on CBS for 22 years and was at NBC doing "Late Night" for 11. They tape 2 shows on Thursdays, one for Thursday night and the 2nd for Friday night (4 day work week...not to bad). While taping the early show for Thursday R.E.M.'s Mike Mills and Peter Buck were playing with Josephn Aurthor who has a Lou Reed tribute album coming out. Since Dave announced his retirement during the taping, Mike decided to tweet the news. Mike said that he thought about it first, but figured there were 300 people in the audience,  most of whom have some sort of social media outlet and he wouldn't be the only one to break the news. He's probably right...but he was probably the ONLY famous person that did. Check out the videos below of Mike talking about it, the performance of "Walk On The Wild Side" and R.E.M.'s network television premire when they were on Letterman's show in 1983 all thanks to the website

The Cure play 45 song set...and talk new album

Mar 30, 2014 -- 5:21pm


This past weekend The Cure played 2 shows for the Teenage Cancer Trust in London at the Royal Albert Hall. This is the 2nd time they have played the charity shows, the last time being in 2006. Pretty impressive for a band of that age to play 2 3 hour shows in a row, both with 45 songs. Not to shabby!!!

Robert Smith was also on XFM (British radio) where he talked about new music. It was reported earlier this year that the band would release "4:14 Scream"...kind of the 2nd part of their 2008 album "4:13 Dream". Since then the band's line up has changed quit a bit a Smith isn't sure it's really nessicary to put out on album with band the he says "no longer exists". Smith says he is currently working a new album with the present line up of The Cure, but is in no real hurry.

You can check out some video shot during the Teenage Cancer Trust shows.
