Hootie & The Blowfish were a pretty big deal in the 1990s but then they pretty much fell apart when frontman, Darius Rucker, decided to pursue a solo country career. In fact, it’s been more than four years since the South Carolina band produced anything but Rucker is eyeing a return to the band.
"There's one more Hootie record and tour that we're going to do," he says. "I don't know when, because country music is my day job -- it's what I want to do. We'll probably always be a band. We've got two shows in August, we do about four or five dates a year. We'll do another album and tour for a year, then I'll be right back to this music."
I had no idea they were still performing together at all! Wow![…] Read more »
As has been the case with many musical acts recently, Metallica is preparing to release a 3-D live concert movie but they insist that it will be more than what everyone else has been doing.
During a recent interview, Lars Ulrich said: "Yeah, I've got my horse and my sword and my battle armor. Not quite that, but there are stranger references than 'The Song Remains the Same.' I certainly don't mean to be disrespectful in that way; I have nothing but love for Led Zeppelin and 'The Song Remains the Same.' (The film) is a narrative, and the rest of the stuff that goes on outside of the concert is not going to feature members of Metallica...in any way, shape or form. It's a split narrative that kind of runs parallel to the concert."[…] Read more »
Rumor has it that Kanye West has enlisted the help of a private jeweler in an effort to make a one-of-a-kind engagement ring for his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian. Apparently, it’s so important that Kanye is reportedly including some jewelry from his late mother’s personal collection.
A source said: "Kanye picked out some of Donda's most expensive pieces, including some diamond earrings and a ruby ring. Donda was such an important person in Kanye's life, he thought the world of her and was devastated when she died. So, he kept all her jewelry as keepsakes -- a lot of the pieces were items he bought over the years after he made it as a hip-hop star. And now, Kanye has found a woman he respects and loves just as much as his mom, so he wants to share her jewelry collection with Kim.”[…] Read more »
Justin Bieber might be having trouble respecting those around him if these claims have any truth to them.
First, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard were on The View yesterday to promote their new movie Hit & Run but it was what the couple shared about their personal lives that really stood out. Apparently, Bieber is renting the house behind the one they share and the neighborhood has taken on a slightly different feel.
"The music and the parties and the paparazzi, I mean, it's like living in Lebanon now," Shepard said.
Bell tried to take a more diplomatic approach: "In his defense, I will say we don't know the exact house the music is coming from. We just know since he moved in, the music has been blaring."[…] Read more »
Singer Darlene Love is one lucky woman. As she was preparing for a performance at at Tim McLoone's in Asbury Park, N.J., she started experiencing symptoms that were a lot more troubling that she realized. After her husband gave her an aspiring, Love shrugged off her stomach pains and acid reflux and took to the stage to perform for the waiting crowd.
Unfortunately, things did not improve the next day for the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and, after suffering for long enough, Love rushed to the hospital where doctors determined that she had suffered a heart attack. They informed her that she had sought treatment just in time.
Love explains: "We caught it before it got bad and I went in and had the procedure done. I'm home ... and doing fine. They told me I'd be fine in a couple of days. I can go back to my regular routine."[…] Read more »
It must be hard to come from a rough neighborhood and then make it big. Obviously, it has some clear and absolutely advantages but everyone you grew up with, unless they also found a way out, is still back there living that tough life and, sometimes, the two realities can collide which is something rapper, Lupe Fiasco can understand.
Having grown up in Chicago, Fiasco raps about his life there and his struggles with the government, crime and war and, recently, when he was being interviewed by “RapFix Live,” to promote his new track “Lamborghini Angels,” the discussion took a sad and somber turn.
The 30-year-old broke down when Sway showed him a six-year-old clip of MTV's "My Block." He was featured in the episode but that’s not what upset it – it was seeing many friends, whom he refers to as “ghosts” because they’ve since been thrown in jail[…] Read more »
