Megachrist
Blabbermouth reports: Jeff Kerby of KNAC.COM recently conducted an interview with MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine. A few excerpts from the chat follow:

KNAC.COM: Your convictions are obviously strong, and that's admirable...you cancelled a couple tour dates overseas because you had a problem with a couple of bands...on that theme, are there any MEGADETH songs you won't do now?

Dave Mustaine: "Well, no. I mean, the ones that I did that I'm not doing anymore that to me is just wrong is SEX PISTOLS' 'Anarchy' 'cause it says I'm an anti-Christ. I'm not really anti anybody so I had to kind of take a look at that. You know, I mean, I am sure if I wanted to I could do 'Black Friday' or 'The Conjuring' because they don't really mean anything anymore, because the lyrics from 'Bad Omen' I had to jumble up because it was a bona fide hex, so it was kind of like gobbledygook, unless you get lucky and you know something about witchcraft you're not going to be able to deduce what that spell is. And 'Black Friday', you know, it's just gratuitous violence which, that's cool to a point, but there's so many death metal fans that do it better than I did."["What do you mean I don't believe in God?" see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Where Your Edu $$ Go
Blabbermouth reports: The first academic study into the sweaty pursuit of air guitar playing is to use the work of French philosophers to explain why men and women do it differently.

Doctoral research has begun under the supervision of Britain's first professor of pop music, who is also overseeing a PhD into the art of "moshing", the vigorous head-shaking dance popular among concert crowds.

The study will try and answer why men and women play differently 

For the next three years, Amanda Griffiths, 32, a dance teacher from north Wales, will attempt to explain, in 60,000 words, why the attractions of an invisible guitar are generally overlooked by women, and how the girls who get involved do it differently.

Payola Fallout
Reuters reports: New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer has settled his payola case against Sony BMG. Now, the radio and music industries, which felt they had already cleaned up their act, are left wondering what difference, if any, the settlement will make. 

In the short term, Sony BMG's July 25 payola admission is already making waves. Some Clear Channel program directors say they are now required to attach documentation to any merchandise received from labels, declaring it was not received in connection with providing airplay. And on July 26, Archway Broadcasting fired Blake Larson, music director of its top 40 station WRHT in Greenville, N.C. Spitzer said Larson accepted a $1,365 laptop computer, $900 in airfare and PlayStation 2 equipment from a label in exchange for airplay of the label's artists.
