Morning click: Carly's "Vain" man still a mystery, Pavement plays first show in a decade
- All that talk of David Geffen being the subject of Carly Simon's classic "You're So Vain" - not true, says Simon. "Nothing to do with David Geffen! What a funny mistake!" she said. She added that she didn't even know Geffen when she wrote the song in 1971.
- Monday was the first show of the highly-anticipated Pavement reunion, the first since 1999 for the indie rock heroes. The set list for the New Zealand concert was about what one would expect, light on the last two albums, heavy on early fan favorites - "Summer Babe," "Gold Soundz," "Grounded," "Trigger Cut," etc. Biggest surprise inclusion was "Give It A Day," an overlooked gem from the 1996 "Pacific Trim" EP. Remind me to tell you the story about the time I followed Pavement around for a week when I was 18 and every night would pester them to play "Give It A Day" and then finally on the last night I was around they played it and Stephen Malkmus forgot a couple of the lines. Well, I guess I just did tell the story. I didn't say it was an interesting one. The band just announced another handful of American headlining dates - still nothing in D.C.
- Tom "T-Bone" Wolk, longtime bassist for Hall & Oates, died from a heart attack Sunday at the age of 58. Wolk also played with top names such as Elvis Costello, Billy Joel, Bette Midler, and was bassist for the "Saturday Night Live" band from 1986-1992. Wolk was to perform last night with Hall & Oates on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." The band canceled its performance.
