|No Longer Faster Muscat|
"Now on to the Faster Pussycat topic. It's starting to circulate over the net so let me just stick in my 2 cents.
Brent Muscat has decided to forgoe the
entire headache of the legalities involved in fighting for the name Faster
Pussycat. After much soul searching he decided after the European tour
and the couple dates this summer that he's decided to let the other parties
carry on with the name.

|Uriah Heep Frontman Delivers Blood on the Highway|
Ken Hensley still has his dreams: for example
to perform Blood On The Highway on stage. "One of my dreams is to perform
the album with my band, the guest vocalists and a 25-piece string section
in as many big cities as possible, not only in England and America, but
also all over Europe, Australia and Japan." The idea doesn't seem far-fetched
as Ken Hensley performed his fascinating rock opera, Blood On The Highway,
in Hamburg, Germany on May 22, 2007. Likewise, his autobiography (under
the same title) is to be released on July 20th and a live DVD is scheduled
for release later this year.

|All Teeth And Knuckles|
Sure, there's solid amounts of straight up pump n' clap, synth-thick, sex-ready party jams to be had, but it's the prominent demeanor of spite, humor, and recklessness that adds in that special flavor that breaks the formula, flips up the script, and keeps the band on razor's edge status.

Tony Matt erhorn, writer and recording artist behind "Durty Wine," was so impressed with "China Wine" after receiving an early edit from Wyclef Jean that he asked if he could record on "China Wine" as well.

Elephant Man is currently signed with VP Music Group Inc. and is releasing his next record on [P.Shiddy's] Bad Boy Records. - more on this story
