Music Bullets, 6-18-07

  • A couple of Bonnaroo notes from the weekend: 1) Get well soon, Mr. Ornette Coleman. He's slowly starting to get the recognition he's deserved for a while, and he needs to stick around a while. 2) Ben Harper, John Paul Jones, and ?uestlove doing a Zeppelin medley? Wow. 3) (Also from that last link) Lily Allen can drink.
  • A Lou Pearlman money scheme. Not surprising--he's been bilking customers out of their money for years. Seriously, it's hard to think of one person who did more to damage the state of popular music (which damages itself just fine) than this guy.
  • I’m just now putting 2 and 2 together on this one: this year marks the 40th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper, the 30th anniversary of Nevermind the Bollocks..., the 20th anniversary of The Joshua Tree, and the 10th anniversary of OK Computer. Which begs the question...when is this year’s amazingly, earth-shatteringly momentous album going to be released? And by whom? My guess: Kanye. Well...he’s the most likely to try, anyway.
