Soulfly Stroke
blabbermouth.net reports: SOULFLY's official web site has been updated with the following message:

"Last week, one of our own, Bobby Burns [SOULFLY bassist] suffered a mild stroke and was immediately hospitalized. He was ordered to remain under the care of a doctor until he was fully recovered, and although we are happy to report that he has already been released from the hospital, we are extremely sad that he will not be able to play bass on SOULFLY's upcoming U.S. tour (which begins on September 18th in San Diego). No one has been confirmed to fill in on bass for him yet, but as soon as the announcement is made, it will be posted here. Please send Bobby your well-wishes and regards at [email protected] or at his MySpace page." [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Knack Sue Run DMC
PR reports: Members of the 80s rock band The Knack today filed a lawsuit against the members of Run DMC, and Run DMC's producers, distributors, publishers and record companies, over Run DMC's use of an unlicensed sample of The Knack 's 1979 platinum hit "My Sharona" in Run DMC's song, "It's Tricky."

The Knack's Doug Fieger and Berton Averre filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Run DMC today in the United States District Court for the Central District of California. The complaint alleges that members of Run DMC and their manager, producers, publishers, and record label unlawfully appropriated portions of "My Sharona," including the song's signature guitar riff, for use in "It's Tricky," which first appeared on Run DMC's 1986 Raising Hell album. The suit also names several companies involved in the distribution of the allegedly infringing albums. Fieger and Averre wrote "My Sharona" and obtained a copyright registration for it in 1979. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages and attorneys' fees. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

In the episode, a rapper named J-Train � we're looking at you, K-Fed � becomes a murder suspect after incriminating photos of his wife are published in the tabloids.
