Nine Inch Nails New CD!

Trent Reznor and company appeared on the Kevin and Bean Show on Los Angeles radio station KROQ FM this morning. They answered questions from the 106.7 audience members, performed several songs and let it slip that the new CD may be coming out early next year. Expect a different sound from NIN on the CD! For more and to hear Trent almost a capella, check out breakfast with NIN.

American Idol Finale: McFeeble

Enough said.

By default, my vote goes to Taylor Hicks.

Chris Gone From American Idol?? Time for Fuel?

The best pure rock singer in the competition, gone? In the quarter-finals? Well, it will be interesting (to say the least) to hear how his song on the forthcoming CD, "American Idol Season 5 Encores," will stack up against the final three, without the visuals of Taylor's manic energy, Kat's constant mugging and Elliott's distractingly bland performance (although Elliott is the best singer of those left). (TMZ has reported that a special surprise awaits Chris tonight on "Extra"... I have learned that he is being offered the Fuel lead singer job.)

Highest Gas Price in Los Angeles?

This photo was taken Saturday night, May 6, of a gas station located in Brentwood, CA. Mistake? Who knows these days!

Now Hear This: A Semi-Regular Column for Unsigned Artists on Making it in the Music Biz

Go ahead, get a page on myspace, but don't put all your hopes on that site. Continue to explore other opportunities. One new site that has come to my attention is tagworld. So far, the site has about 1.6 million registered users, admittedly a drop in the bucket compared to myspace, but it has many features that are better, including a music player that lets you input a musician's name and then get suggestions for similar artists (much like Pandora). Unsigned bands can register to get their own pages put up on tagworld.

Another good site is stickam. Film your band playing live -- either in a club or in your own living room -- upload it to stickam and then link the video to your myspace or tagworld page and let the world see how charismatic you really are.

Be sure to include links to myspace and tagworld on your own website!
