Dave Matthews' Son Prefers Nirvana Over DMB

(Radio.com) Dave Matthews appeared on The Late Show and host Stephen Colbert grilled him about his son's musical tastes. Even though dad is a mega-successful recording and touring artist, Dave's son seems to prefer Nirvana's grungier aesthetic.

"Dad, I like your music, but you know Nirvana is like [loud guitar sounds] and you're like [mellow strumming]," Matthews recalled. "I thought that was pretty solid."

Touring remains the centerpiece of the Dave Matthews Band's success. Colbert remembered a show he saw in North Charleston, South Carolina, and complimented the energy of the fans. Dave said outdoor concert experiences have changed over the years, mostly thanks to smartphones.

"We've gone from when they used to hold lighters up and that would look like stars and it was pretty and now they hold cell phones up and it's also pretty but it's more consistent. It's like digital stars," he said. "That's why I feel old-timey. Because I'm from the days of fire."

Dave also performed "Samurai Cop" with DMB compatriot Tim Reynolds. Watch the performance and the interview here.

Kendrick Lamar Pulled Over Bu Beverly Hills Police

(Radio.com) Kendrick Lamar was pulled over on Friday (May 12) by a Beverly Hills police officer but skated free of any tickets despite his Mercedes-Benz G Wagon being in violation of multiple laws.

As a TMZ cameraman rolled up to the murdered out SUV, the motorcycle cop explained that Lamar was not cited for any infraction. "Just a routine check," he explained as he rode off.

The officer indicated that Lamar had been originally pulled over for not having any plates. It's likely that the rapper had not received them yet from the DMV. But that doesn't explain why the officer didn't cite him for dark tinted windows and windshield which are illegal in California.

Looks like Lamar caught the officer on a good day. Watch the traffic stop unfold here.
