Notorious B.I.G. murder investigation re-opened; Of course Kanye wanted cover art banned; Nighthawks guitarist pens bio
- The Los Angeles Police Department has once again re-opened the 1997 murder case of Notorious B.I.G. aka Christopher Wallace. New evidence -- which has not been made public -- has "reinvigorated" the case.
- Remember the original version of Kanye West's "My Beautiful Twisted Dark Fantasy" cover art that was banned? That was his intention all along. Shocking.
- Drowning Pool's song "Bodies" has once again been linked to a violent crime, this time the tragedy in Arizona. The band has released a statement saying the song "was written about the brotherhood of the mosh pit and the respect people have for each other in the pit. If you push others down, you have to pick them back up. It was never about violence. It's about a certain amount of respect and a code."
- D.C. guitarist Jimmy Nalls, who has played with bands such as Sea Level, the Nighthawks and more, has penned a memoir, "Wood and Wire: The Life and Music of a “Guitar Slinger” and His Fight with Parkinson’s Disease."
