I like links. Links are good.

To aspiring musicians, Busta Rhymes says “Patience is the best weapon.”

Eric Clapton’s US tour (with Derek Trucks) will be starting 9/16 in St. Paul, MN. He’s doing one wild Euro tour before the states, including a 7-night (!!!) run at London’s Royal Albert Hall and a night in Moscow’s Red Square — very cool.

Taylor Hicks won American Idol. I didn’t watch one second of this season. Congrats to Taylor, though — he’ll forever be in my mom and grandma’s heart. :)

News flash: there were drug arrests at Summer Camp this weekend. That, and some dude had the night terrors on Sunday night. Man he was freaked out…

Announcing: the Old School House Party in Austin, TX on 6/17, featuring the C-staff of old school hip-hop (Kurtis Blow, Wonder Mike and Master Gee of the Sugar Hill Gang, DJ Spinderella of Salt & Peppa, DJ Wiz of Kid & Play and from the Bad Boyz of Comedy comedian/ impressionist Reggie Reg). Picture the Pajama Jammy Jam scene in House Party 2

  1. I saw that guy flipping out on Sunday night I think it was. Major bummer, I’m sure it put a dent in his weekend. We were on our way to moe. and there was already too many people around him so we opted to stay out of it, but hopefully he’s alright. I noticed TONS of police on Saturday in the main stage area, but none on Sunday and very little on Friday. Seemed like a weird emphasis, but whatever.

  3. i have to comment on the american idol bit… since im from birmingham. its really funny that taylor hicks won, having seen him play in local bars both in birmingham and around the state in college towns for years. hes really not to bad, and his band is pretty decent, for a bar band. american idol may kill any potentially great music he has to offer. his band is also no longer the “taylor hicks band”, they are now the “little memphis blues orchestra” or LiMBO. im more curious to see if after all of this he sticks with his band, or tells them to hit the road. time will tell.
