This is the coolest acoustic version of Everlong that i can find on YouTube. I love the song so much, so it’s not easy. When i tried to replay the video, it wasn’t as good as the first. But i think that’s what acoustic versions are all about. You should be there, watch & listen, because there will be no more repeated moments. I would die to be among people who watch this performance. But even my willingness to die for this can’t repeat that brilliant moment.

Yeah. Long live Dave Grohl!

I’m definetely the stupidest Prong fan in the world.

I’ve just found out this morning that Raven, Prong’s bassist at CLEANSING era has of a suspected heart attack at age 46. That’s October 22nd 2007!! Before he became Prong’s bassist, Raven was a member of post-punk band Killing Joke, which was hero to Prong. Killing Joke had hits including Love Like Blood and Pandemonium, and were covered by Metallica and Foo Fighters.

Raven’s music career included stints in Neon Hearts and glam rock band Kitsch before he replaced original Killing Joke bassist Youth in 1982.

He left the band in 1987 before forming Murder Inc and joining Ministry, Prong and Mob Research.

My deep condolences.

Peter Garret was a rockstar with his hard rock punk band, Midnight Oil. He has been an Australian Labor Party member of the House of Representatives for the seat of Kingsford Smith, New South Wales, since October 2004. After the Labor Party win in the November 2007 election, Garrett was appointed as Minister for Environment, Heritage and Arts by Prime Minister-elect Kevin Rudd.

MetalSucks confirmed that my childhood hero Kevin Dubrow from Quiet Riot found dead 2 days ago at the age of 52, at his home. The band was one of the highest profile in the glam rock scene back in the eighties. There was a time for me listening to Quite Riot and wished i was them (yeah, i was an air guitar player).

Anyhow for all old school rock music fans including me, his work in below video will never be forgotten. So long my childhood hero, God bless you…

More from NME:

However, a statement released by the singer’s promoter AEG said: “Prince is not suing his fans, is not looking to penalise fans and nor is he looking to or inhibiting freedom of speech in any way. In fact, he is simply looking to provide Prince fans with exclusive music and images entirely free of charge, and bypassing unofficial and unauthorised phoney fan sites that exploit both consumers and artists.

“The action taken earlier this week was not to shut down fansites, or control comment in any way. The issue was simply to do with in regards to copyright and trademark of images and only images, and no lawsuits have been filed.

And here’s another via Hypebot:

The sites creating a unified to fight back.

That’s it, thanks to NME and Hypebot, but i’m done with Prince.

Here’s a cool story from Techcrunch:

According to the BBC Prince is using Web Sheriff to demand that fans remove all and any album covers, images of him in concert and any Prince lyrics from their fan sites. Sites that fail to act on the demands should expect legal action to follow as Prince is claiming breach of copyright.

I do think Prince has lost a lot of money from the period he was famous until today the music 2.0. days. Somehow, i browse to the original article and found an debatable rather oh so right comment by a dude called faceloop:

Duncan, I agree with your take.

Since I am a huge fan of TechCrunch – do you think Mike would mind if I copy/paste all TC posts to a new blog and start selling ads around it?

Im not going to link back to you…but I am sure you guys will not mind since I am one of your biggest fans and I know you would not attack your fans! Its just content.

I think Faceloop has the point, i just think screening the whole web will be overrated, don’t you think? I don’t know man, this is just another good story which i do enjoy, TechCrunch rules!
