Morning click: Pink Floyd sues for royalties, DMX arrested

Dark Side of the MoonPink Floyd does not want you to hear this record one song at a time.

- The remaining members of Pink Floyd are suing EMI for Internet royalty payments. The band, whose contract with the record label is over ten years old, wants the label to cough up digital sales royalties and stop selling individual Pink Floyd songs-- rather than complete albums-- via web outlets. Because listening to one song at a time totally harshes the Pink Floyd experience. "Pink Floyd is well-known for performing seamless pieces. Many of the songs blend into each other," the band's attorney told a London court.

- Rapper DMX was arrested in Phoenix yesterday for violating his probation. The MC, best known for his late 90s singles "Ruff Ryders' Anthem" and "Party Up (Up In Here)," was arrested after admitting to a probation officer that he regularly uses cocaine.

- Billy Corgan has announced that his band the Smashing Pumpkins is searching for a new bassist and keyboard player. According to the press release, all interested keyboardists must be able to slay like Jon Lord and Rick Wakeman.

Dear Pink Floyd: Please explain to the court how the Echoes compilation (presumably authorized by the band) supports your argument.
