Guns N’ Roses in concert controversy shocker; Randy Johnson, rock photog; Arcade Fire takes you back home

By David Malitz

- Guns N' Roses played mega festivals Reading and Leeds in the U.K. over the weekend and things were predictably disastrous. Late arriving, going past curfew, blasting the promoters from the stage. Pretty much as expected by this point.

- You're newest celebrity rock photographer? That would be five-time Cy Young award-winning pitcher Randy Johnson. After first shooting Soundgarden and Lollapalooza, The Big Unit turned his camera on Megadeth. I will use this item as an excuse to post this video of Randy Johnson hitting a dove with a pitch.

- Local radio personality Anwan "Big G" Glover, also known for his acting roles on "The Wire" and "Treme," says he was fired from his job at WKYS (93.9 FM) for continuing to support D.C. mayor Adrian Fenty in his upcoming election.

- Yesterday's top memes: Arcade Fire's new video, which takes you back to your childhood home. And Album Tacos, which is pretty self-explanatory.

Missing from the Album Tacos gallery: the inside gatefold picture from ZZ Top's Tres Hombres.
