Saturday News Round-up
Here's a bunch of stuff that's interesting, but don't (In my opinion) deserve a whole post. And if you don't deserve a whole post on some old guy's blog that nobody reads, you ain't doin' so hot.
** Notice the photo above? Jack White now officially looks like the fat girl in 3rd grade that I was afraid of. Good job, Jack. And I hear your James Bond theme song is worst than that haircut.
** Cheech and Chong are re-forming for a tour. Convenience stores and fast food restaurants rejoice.
** Yes are touring with a singer that they found on Youtube. How original, says Journey and Boston.
On a serious note, they did it because Jon Anderson is sick. Hope he gets better. But when your band replaces you for some tribute band dude, that can't be good.
** Foo Fighters are going to take a long hiatus before they do any more touring or recording. Boo.
** Alice In Chains are recording their first album in 13 years. The album will feature William DuVall, who sang with the band during reunion tour this year. He took over for Layne Staley, who died in 2002 from a drug overdose. Should have added them to my previous list.
** This one probably deserved its own post: Stephen Colbert will have his very own hour-long Christmas special, called A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift Of All, on November 23. And yes, Colbert will be singing, along with the following:
"Please Be Patient" by Feist
"Little Dealer Boy" by Colbert/Willie Nelson
"There Are Much Worse Things To Believe In" by Colbert/Elvis Costello
"Hanukkah" by Colbert and Jon Stewart
"Nutmeg" by Colbert/John Legend
"(What’s So Funny ’bout) Peace, Love And Understanding" by everybody
"Have I Got a Present for You" by Toby Keith
