Dropping an F-Bomb at a Fighting Fan. - Dave Grohl
Dave Grohl stopped mid performance of Skin And Bones when he saw a man in a striped shirt fighting at his show. The incident caused Dave to drop the mother of all F-Bombs. I wonder if the Foo Fighters will ever be invited to the I-Tunes Festival after this incident?
At the outro of "Gods Of War" ,a song which is about nuclear war, there is TV / radio broadcast coverage featuring sound bites from Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher and bomb and missile attacks from the 1986 U.S. war with Libya the year before.
they call themselves "Dick Heads". Honest! At his shows vendors sell T-shirts and some of them sport the phrase "I'm a Dick Head". They're the ones saying it, not me although his shows are electrifying and he's a real cool pleasant dude. Check him out.
Or rather it was Natalie Maines's political views that caused a lot of contreversy. At a concert in France Natalie Maines blurted out to a crowd at a concert in France that she was "embarrassed that President Bush is from the state of Texas" which prompted protests, public steam rollings of their CDs, death threats, and Radio station bans of the Dixie Chicks's music.
The jazz great's cheeks puffed up when he played, giving him more air for performing. His trumpet was accidentally bent in the early 50's, and he liked the sound of the damaged instrument so much that he had future horns bent in a similar fashion.
Keanu Reeves is still one of the most recognizable celebrities in Hollywood. Ironically, there was another band called Klaatu (Reeves' character on "Day The Earth Stood Still"), which recorded a song called "Dog Star".
Dolly Parton is Miley Cyrus' godmother according to her website. To honor her, Cyrus has posted a new video on her YouTube account that presents an excellent rendition of Dolly Parton's early-'70's country classic "Jolene."
Recently, they are causing her to have back aches.
Unorthodox Time Signatures - Don Ellis

Crude remarks about Glenn Frey and vomit - Don Henley
Before The Eagles reunited in 1994, Henley was asked during a news conference if he would ever work with Frey again. His response was: "I'd rather eat my own vomit."
Throwing her used tampon into a crowd at a concert - Donita Sparks
During the 1992 Reading Festival, the then-L7 singer/guitarist was angry that mud was being thrown at her by the crowd. In protest, Sparks took her tampon from her pants and threw it back at them, yelling "Eat my used tampon, M***********s!" (Sparks has also exposed her privates during a late-night British entertainment show.)
You thought the FCC was strict now, back then they told Jim Morrison not to say 'higher' on "The Ed Sullivan Show" since the FCC thought it was a Drug Reference. But still...The Doors sang "Light my Fire" without any alterations...and never played on Ed Sullivan again, even Sullivan was upset as well since he refused to shake their hands after their first and last performance on "The Ed Sullivan Show"!
When MTV came on the air in 1981 Duran Duran had the dubious distinction of having their video "Girls On Film" banned by the sprouting young TV network.
At the time even talking about sex was a taboo subject. Having a racy video such as this made it that much more a taboo subject. Thankfully Duran Duran were never subjected to the PMRC's "Explicit Lyrics" sticker guidelines. This song would have almost certainly made the group's Filthy Fifteen.
All three of the Taylors left Duran Duran at certain stages of the band's success. Roger first because he was a newlywed and wanted to start a family, then Andy to persue a solo career, and then John was the last original member of the band to leave. This left just Simon and Nick to pick up the pieces.
