Prince Vs Paris
TMZ reports: Prince challenged Paris to a sing-off at his Las Vegas show -- and Paris Hilton couldn't step up, if a report in Us is to be believed. The hotel heiress was in the audience at Prince's Club 3121 show at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, and Prince invited her onstage. When, according to Us, she skipped up to take her place in the spotlight, Prince handed her a mic and called out to the crowd, "Let's see if she can really sing," a challenge that so dismayed Paris that she ended up ditching the stage and leaving just two songs later. Paris' rep denies the incident.- Click Here for the Full Story

Own a Piece of Pantera History
Blabbermouth reports: A prototype Fernandes signature bass guitar used by Rex Brown (DOWN, PANTERA) during the recording and promotion of PANTERA's "The Great Southern Trendkill" album as well as the "Official Live: 101 Proof" tour is up for sale on eBay. The seller's statement about the bass reads as follows: "There are many tablature books out there, but here is something that made the PANTERA sound. Here is your chance to own an actual piece of the PANTERA empire. This bass is being sold by Rex, not a collector or investor. Rex is selling it because basically it's just been sitting sealed up in a storage unit since the PANTERA days and deserves a much better fate. Don't pass on this rare opportunity. I am the official PANTERA and DOWN webmaster and I am running this auction for Rex while he is in the studio with DOWN, recording their third album.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Third Eye Kinks = Year Long Disaster
punkbands reports: Throw the drummer for Third Eye Blind, and offspring of Dave Davies (of The Kinks), and an ex-member of Speedealer into a blender and you get Year Long Disaster. The band just signed with Volcom who had this to say...

Rock-trio Year Long Disaster is led by guitarist and vocalist Daniel Davies who grew up with an insider's perspective being the son of Kinks' guitarist Dave Davies. Bassist, Rich Mullins, has toured the world in his past rock lives with Karma to Burn and Speedealer, and Brad Hargreaves is certainly no stranger to bright lights and big cities as his moonlighting gig is as the drummer of eight-times platinum Third Eye Blind. Together, they are indeed, Year Long Disaster.

Beginning next week Year Long Disaster will be holing up in Tucson, Arizona with producer/engineer Jim Waters (Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, RL Burnside) to record their debut release, which is slated for a September, 2007 release.[see full story for tour dates]- Click Here for the Full Story
