Woman Injured In Chris Brown and Drake Brawl Speaks Out
(TMZ) The woman whose face was ripped open by a flying glass bottle in the Chris Brown vs. Drake club brawl is blaming the incident solely on the "stupid famous people" involved.

Moments after 24-year-old Hollie C. returned from a night in the hospital -- where she received 16 stitches in her head -- the Australian tourist recorded an emotional video to express her anger at the situation.

"Where's the justice in them driving away in a limo while I had to catch the train home on one of my holidays?"

TMZ broke the story ... Hollie was hanging out inside club W.i.P. on Wednesday night when the brawl broke out ... and someone threw a bottle that smashed her directly in the forehead.

Hollie -- who said she drifted in and out of consciousness -- was separated from her friends and transported to a nearby hospital ... where she was treated overnight ... and sent on her way by herself early Thursday morning.

So far, no arrests have been made in connection with the brawl. Watch video here.

Lady Gaga 'Not Worthy' of Alice Cooper Cover
(Gibson) Lady Gaga is beyond thrilled with Alice Cooper's recent cover of her hit "Born This Way." As the story goes, during his June 8 show in Biloxi, Miss., the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer busted out a cover version of the song with the lyrics altered to reflect Alice's personal experience, all while still staying true to Gaga's original motif of self-acceptance.

Gaga was so geeked about the whole thing that she tweeted a link to the show: "Has anyone seen @realalicecooper cover 'BORN THIS WAY' during his show?" She went on to tweet right to Cooper, exclaiming, "I am not worthy, Sire."

Gaga also asserted that she loved how the classic rocker altered the songs' lyrics to fit his experience. "The way he changed the words to be about him was so rad," she said. "I want to hang out with #FRANKENGAGA," that being a reference to Cooper's hit, "Feed My Frankenstein." more on this story

Chris Brown Gives Police Evidence Against Drake In Bar Brawl
(TMZ) Chris Brown has spoken with New York Police Dept. detectives about the bar fight that left a gash in his chin ... and law enforcement sources tell us his lawyer has given the NYPD "physical evidence" which allegedly shows Drake was involved in the melee.

We're told Chris' lawyer, Mark Geragos, went to the NYPD late yesterday to present evidence showing that Drake and Meek Mill were the aggressors, but earlier in the day Chris spoke with Detectives at an undisclosed location in NYC. Cops tell us Chris is not currently a suspect but rather "a witness and a victim." We're also told Drake is not currently a suspect.

On the other side, we're told Drake has been "cooperating" with authorities, but we do not know if he has spoken to cops -- it appears his representatives have had conversations with detectives.

Sources tell us ... the bad guy here may be someone in Chris' camp, who was inciting Drake and his people all night.

As we previously reported both Chris and Drake were trash talking each other before the fight, flipping each other off and what not. more on this story

Passion Pit Take A Walk For New Video
Columbia Records sent over word that Passion Pit and director David Wilson of Colonel Blimp have collaborated on the music video for the band's first single, "Take A Walk."

Inspired by Osamu Tezuka's animated short "Jumping," David Wilson expressed his interest in capturing a live version of the film's bouncing animation with a helicam. Passion Pit's "Take A Walk" was a natural fit, as Wilson immediately connected with the rhythm of the music. As Wilson explains, "it was the desire to echo the seamless rhythm in the song with the camera bounce that drew me to this bespoke helicam capable of creating such a smooth bounce." With the support of The Creators Project, a global initiative dedicated to supporting artists in realizing their creative visions through technology, David Wilson and Michael Angelakos of Passion Pit tackled the challenge of conceptualizing a narrative based on the song's lyrics and the capability of the helicam's tailored movements.

"Essentially, we were able to achieve moves with the camera that I haven't seen before; the bounce is something that really differentiates this from any helicam video I've seen before," explains Wilson. "Making that a reality was a challenge; there's a reason a camera hasn't been bounced via mini helicopter before." Their efforts paid off, as the bouncing nature of the video replicates both the booming rhythm of "Take A Walk" and Angelakos' attempts to rise above the troubles weighing him down.

The content of the video was shaped over conversations between Wilson and Angelakos about the extremely personal nature of "Take A Walk," in which Angelakos struggles with the modern-day issue of maintaining a sense of self and family amongst the trappings of materialism. In the lyrics, Angelakos weaves the personal stories of various family members into a more universal tale, exploring both the agony and ecstasy of self-realization. In spite of these struggles, Passion Pit's upcoming release Gossamer (out July 24th on Columbia) is ultimately a search for hope.

Ringo Starr's All Starr Band's Mark Rivera Releasing Solo Album
Ringo Starr's All Starr Bandmate and Musical Director Mark Rivera will be releasing his debut album Common Bond, leading with the single, "Turn Me Loose", to be available on the first day of summer, June 21, 2012. The album title is a nod to his career as a sideman musician and his Brooklyn roots.

Common Bond was recorded at Avatar Studios in NYC, where he also recorded what has become one of his career defining horn performances on Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer". Mark put together a group of stellar musicians to play on the album including Charlie Drayton on Drums (Keith Richards, The Rolling Stones, Fiona Apple, Courtney Love), Steve Conte on Guitar (New York Dolls, Willie DeVille, Billy Squire, Eric Burdon & The Animals), Jeff Kazee on Keyboards, (Southside Johnny, Bon Jovi), and John Conte on Bass (John Mayer, Peter Wolf, Jon Bon Jovi, Levon Helm) as well as Jonny Gale (guitar) who co-wrote three songs and Jimmy Bralower (Production and Patience) who co-wrote all of the original material on the album, including "Turn Me Loose". The album also features performances by very special guests Ringo Starr on Drums on "Frontline", Billy Joel on B3 on "Spanish Castle Magic", and Nils Lofgren on Guitar on "Hard To Let Go".

Mark started his career in 1972 with the original "Soul Men," Sam & Dave, and went on to work with Foreigner, the Billy Joel band, Elton John, Peter Gabriel, Hall & Oates, and Simon & Garfunkel. In the mid 1990s Mark became Ringo Starr's Music Director. In Mark's own words, he is most proud of his continuing relationship with Ringo. When asked about this association, Mark smiles and responds, "I'm living a dream."

"We liked the idea of having a girl like Birdy sing," says the group's leader Marcus Mumford. It's been quite liberating." Adds Birdy: "I love it because it tells a story. Although it has a lot of emotion, it's also very upbeat and you want to dance to it, which is why it works so well."

20/20, Clover, Charles Bukowski Reissues Coming in July
Real Gone Music have set a July 31st release date for Powerpop by 20/20, Country-Psych from Clover, Beat Poetry with Charles Bukowski and Smoke And Fire From Sanford & Townsend. conqueroo sent over these details:

Steve Allen and Ron Flynt followed the power pop path blazed by fellow Tulsa natives Phil Seymour and Dwight Twilley when they moved in 1977 to Los Angeles, where they formed (with Mike Gallo) what has universally become one of the most highly regarded power pop/new wave outfits of the era, 20/20. How highly regarded? The long out-of-print CD reissue of their two albums (20/20 and Look Out!) on the Portrait label sells for over $50 and that's for a used copy. Real Gone Music has gone two better with the addition of a pair of non-LP single sides, "Child's Play" and "People in Your Life," which have never been on CD. So in effect, this twofer presents 20/20's complete Portrait recordings. New liner notes featuring interviews with the band members, photos and a fresh remastering by Maria Triana at Battery Studios add to this collection's 20/20 "vision."

Clover is one of the most famous bands you have never heard of. They were the backing band on Elvis Costello's My Aim Is True and a later incarnation of the group morphed into Huey Lewis & the News. Among the founding members, John McFee became a Doobie Brother, Alex Call wrote hits for Lewis and many other artists (including Tommy Tutone's "867-5309/Jenny") and bassist Dr. John Ciambotti played on sessions for everybody from John Prine to Lucinda Williams. Given that pedigree, it's rather astonishing that their first two records (Clover and Fourty Niner), cut for Fantasy in 1970 and '71, respectively, have never been reissued. It's no accident they were on Fantasy, either; not only did Clover hail from the Bay Area (Mill Valley), but they had a rootsy, early alt-country sound not unlike their more famous label-mate, Creedence Clearwater Revival. Alex Call himself supplies the liner notes to this overdue reissue, with added photos. more on this story

Singled Out: Justin Jones
Today Justin Jones tells us about his new single "As It Turns Out" from his brand new album "Fading Lights". Here is the story:

I wrote, "As it turns out", sitting at my dining room table while my daughters ate lunch. The economy was in bad shape, we were fighting two wars that it seemed nobody believed in, and I was feeling like I didn't recognize my own country anymore. Almost like a friend you see slip into alcoholism or drugs, and they lose themselves, and you no longer "know" them. That's how I felt about this country. We used to be the barometer of justice. Now it just feels like we're drunk on greed. I was sitting at that table overwhelmed by the feeling that we, as a country, are going down, and that feeling is what "as it turns out" is all about.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
