The group was performing at the High Life Music Festival in Victorville, California on Sunday (Sept. 25) when rapper Stanley "Flesh-N-Bone" Howse was hit in the face with a two-foot-wide drone.
The drone was hovering above the band during its set and it remains unclear who launched it or how it hit the rapper.Regardless, Howse and the rest of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony didn't miss a beat and continued the show without even pausing the song they were playing. Watch the drone attackhere.
The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) confirmed that Brooks was the first artist in history to earn seven diamond-certified albums. To put that in perspective, Brooks has achieved more diamond-certified albums than The Beatles.
Besides The Ultimate Hits, Brooks' other albums that achieved diamond status include five studio albums Garth Brooks (1989), No Fences (1990), Ropin' the Wind (1991) and Sevens (1997), and another live album, Double Live (1998). On Facebook Live Monday (September 26) evening, Brooks opened up about the honor. "7 seems to be the lucky number today," he said. See how he celebratedhere.
"Green Day has long combined the sneering three-chord energy of foundational punk with Saturday-morning-cartoon accessibility," writes Brad Keefe of Columbus Alive. "In a word, its live show was … fun. The musicians burst out of the starting gate with a joy and energy that lasted through a 25-song set that pushed two hours. The setlist dove deep into the band's biggest albums, including 1994's 'Dookie' and 2004's 'American Idiot', but wove in tracks from throughout its catalog."
The Columbus show became opening night of the Bay Area band's rare club tour after the band postponed the first three dates due to an illness "affecting several members of the band and its crew."
Originally scheduled to open in St. Louis, MO on September 20, the group also postponed stops in Chicago, IL (Sep. 21) and Detroit, MI (Sep 24), while a Toronto, ON appearance at the World Cup Of Hockey Fan Village on September 23 was canceled. Check out the videohere.

Cramer had this to say about the new song, "'All The Same' is about building up a negative situation in your head, and rather than doing anything to fix it, you slowly realize you're just making it worse. I personally find I don't feel better about an issue until I'm actively trying make it better, which often comes after a stagnant period of speculation." Listen

Set up as a three Act Play structure (traditionally the Setup, the Confrontation and the Resolution) Love and War_ is 17 intense and unique compositions each flowing into the next with recurring musical themes or "characters." Read morehere.
"Take Me There" was the final puzzle piece needed to complete our debut album "Imagine This." A lot had happened in the year prior. We'd just introduced our new guitarist, Arran Barker, and this song was our first chance to incorporate his creative ability into our work.
The song stemmed from the opening piano melody which was a totally new way of writing for us. Luke wrote all of the lyrics, chord progressions and melodies within a day. It came together so quickly because it just felt right. Once the back bone of the song was there it was time for Arran to add his touch - introducing exciting new synth sounds that we hadn't had a chance to experiment with before. The four of us then spent a few days at Electric Sun Studios with our close friend and talented producer Stevie Knight to add the final touches and bring the song to life.
Lyrically, "Take Me There" expresses a connection between two people where no matter what paths they take, life always seems to brings them back together.
It's a song we're incredibly proud of and something that truly represents who we are as musicians. This is a sound that you can expect to hear more of in the future of Forever Ends Here.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the albumright here!
