Report for 11/29/05
Madonna Riff Theft
Gigwise reports: It seems the song �Get Together' from the album uses a riff by composer Dominic King, who borrowed the cut with permission from Chaka Khan's song �Fate'. The sample was then used on Stardust's dance floor smash �The Music Sounds Better With You'.

However, it turns out that Madonna never asked to use the tune, King told the Sun: "Her song uses my riff. I'm surprised myself and co-writer Frank Musker didn't get a call. It would have been nice to have been asked."[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Fiddy Condoms
Gigwise reports: 50 Cent not content with going into computer games, films, fashion and also being a rapper sometimes says he wants to enter the sex industry.

Fiddy hopes to bring out his own range of condoms and wait for it� a vibrator with a likeness for himself!

He told America's GQ: "I need to make a 50 Cent condom, and a motorised version of me. A motorised version of me will definitely have to be waterproof, so you could utilise it in the tub. A lot of them vibrators aren't waterproof." He's obviously had a lot of experience! [Is Fiddy related to Gene Simmons? With all of those women that Gene has been with over the years there is a chance isn't there? see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Macca Vs China
hecklerspray reports: Paul McCartney has decided he's never going to play a concert in China. Yeah? We'll we're not going to buy his rubbish new album, but we don't keep spouting off about it.

China got Paul McCartney's hackles up by the way that it treats cats and dogs for fur. And not only is he never going to go to China, he never wants you to go to China, either. Especially for the Olympics. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Anselmo Remembers Dime
Blabbermouth reports: "I feel so goddamn bad for Vince [Paul, PANTERA's drummer and Darrell's brother], because during the writing of our last record, [his and Darrell's] mother passed away� I miss Vince. I miss his sense of humor. And Dime � there was no more creative, beautiful, perfect motherf***er ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever. He could make something out of nothing � if we were in Bumf***, Anywhere, he could find some kind of something to do that would end up being fun, you know? And not to mention his music, our music. Dimebag, Vinnie, Rex � they were the greatest, and still are the greatest, musicians I've ever played with. I will always love everybody in that band, man. We had so much chemistry together. I miss it so goddamn much. You know, it took me quite awhile, but after about six months, I watched some old videos, I listened to our records, and I was just stunned, amazed, gasping for air, because I knew that I was part of something that changed heavy metal forever. And it took all four of us. 

"To lose someone like Dime, and to have his brother in such pain, it kills me. I'd give one of my fingers to fix everything somehow, go back in time, or to have been there. This is a harsh thing to say, but if I saw some stupid son of a bitch coming at my guitar player with a gun, I would have knocked his block off, you know? I would have taken a bullet for that motherf***er."[see full story for A LOT more of this interview]- Click Here for the Full Story
