|Invitro Week: hollyvision|
The key lyric in hollyvision, "I'm the king of the world", almost didn't exist. We needed something to tie together the song and everyone was pushing for the king of the world line. Something about it wasn't there for me, I wasn't sure I liked it. The rest of band remained adamant and in the end won out. Over time it has grown on me, and now whenever we play live, I can't wait to get to that line.

|White Stripes Sex Tape?|
The postchronicle.com posted a series of stills from the video saying " it sure does look like Meg but one cannot be 100% certain. And given the climate of fakes these days, one has to question the authenticity first. The guy in the sex tape does look a lot like early photos of Jack back in 1998." Remember the speculation that they were brother and sister? Icky Thump indeed.
The site further speculates that this new sex tape might have something to do with Meg's anxiety which caused the band to cancel their tour plans a couple days before they were set to kick off. We speculated at the time that less than expected sales might have had something to do with it. but this puts an interesting spin on it.
No word yet from the White camp at press time but you can check the postchronicle.com posting and judge for yourself- right here.
|Bon Jovi Rehab|
The Bon Jovi guitarist first entered rehab in June to treat a drinking problem that some fans reported at the time came to a head during the taping of a performance for MTV Unplugged. He received the spin dry treatment at the UCLA Medical Center but apparently the week long treatment wasn't enough. At the time his spokesperson told People.com "Richie Sambora has completed a program at the UCLA Medical Center. He is doing well and continues to receive outside support."
Apparently that "overnight" treatment requires an additional rehab stint at another facility. This time he checked into Cirque Lodge in Utah, which is the same rehab facility where Lindsay Lohan is currently receiving treatment. - more on this story

|Courtney Vs Sharon Osbourne|
Osbourne first accused Love of turning her son Jack onto Hillbilly Heroin (OxyContin). She said at the time "My dislike towards her (Love) is very personal. I'm not saying Jack wouldn't have taken it if she hadn't given it to him, but I'm appalled an adult mother would give that to a 15-year-old boy."
Never one to hold back on her thoughts, Love reportedly told the London Eye: "I never did that. I would never give drugs to a teenager. F*ck you Sharon, as if I would ever give drugs to a teenager." But her supposed new boyfriend isn't above giving crack to kittens if- reports are to believed.
|Labels Shutdown eDonkey|
IFPI, a blanket organization representing about 1400 record companies across 75 countries, used its German unit to present the injunctions against the network in Hamburg, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Leipzig and Frankfurt's courts.
The shut down of the servers effectively cuts off the network's service to about 1.3 million users worldwide, according to IFPI spokesman Alex Jacob. This move marks the third time this year that the organization has taken action against eDonkey.- more on this story
|Legendary Metal DJ is Dying, Seeks Live Donor|
Tawn can receive a portion of someones liver from a living donor. Both donor and Tawn's new 2-1/2 inch liver, (if it were to be received by living donor), will both grow back to normal healthy sizes in a matter of weeks.
If anyone out there would like to become a living hero, this would truly be a huge way of doing it. I myself would give her a portion of my own liver, but I'm too small in body size. It would take a man or woman with the same blood type as Tawn's, O-negative, and also similar body size and weight. Tawn weighs about 119 pounds.- more information
|Drummer Loses Faith in Norma Jean|
As many of you know, Norma Jean is considered a 'Christian band,' and it is in fact made up of 5 guys who are all Christians. This is something that is a huge part of my life, and something that I take very seriously. Recently I have come to the point in my life where I no longer see Norma Jean as a ministry, and for me to continue in the band, saying that it is, would in my opinion, be wrong. I am not leaving the band on bad terms with any of the guys, but there are differences between us, both personal and spiritual, that I felt were too great for me continue on with, or ignore any longer.
We as a band have in some ways worked towards making things right in the areas where we differed...but for me, the feelings did not change, and we continued to grow apart. So after giving these things much time and thought, I have come to the place where I know that it is right for me to be finished.- more on this story

|Ratt Postpone Euro Tour|
Here is the announcement: Live Nation, X- ray Touring and RATT have decided to postpone the European portion of their fall tour. All 21 dates across Europe will be moved to a later date in order to allow the band to stay on schedule to finish the writing for their new album, which they want to deliver in early 08.
The band also needs the time to honor some personal commitments. All the members of the RATT organization apologize to their fans and followers but this rescheduling will also allow the band to incorporate some of the bigger festivals they have been invited to play next summer (Monsters of Rock, Donnington and several others.) into their touring schedule. - stephen-pearcy.com

|As will.i.am Sees It|
Radar's publicist was kind enough to send over some highlights from the article for you to enjoy, if you want the full interview you'll have to pick up the October issue. Maybe this will convince you. will.i.am On Live Earth: "When Al Gore asked me to perform, I was like, 'Wow, that sounds great, people coming together to stand for something." But then I was like, 'Wait a second, it's sort of hypocritical to throw a concert. Everyone there is going to be drinking water out of plastic bottles.' It can't be the consumer that changes the world, it has to be governments that make laws for corporations and demand they produce alternatives. We won't stop buying things, so give us something else to f*cking buy!"
On turning Black Eyed Peas into a "global brand": "People don't mind doing a song that goes on the radio right after a commercial. That money comes from Jergens and Coke. If your song gets huge, soon you're playing the Staples Center, which is branded, too. So brands help bands from the beginning. I was like, 'Dude, I've always liked Dr Pepper, and they're going to let me play my music.' So f*ck it."- he's not done
