Today In Music News: Jackson's Hard Drive Is Full Of Music, Tenacious D Replaces The Beastie Boys, Steven Tyler Falls and John Hughes Dies
Your daily dose of national music news for Wednesday, April 29, 2009...
- Looks like Michael Jackson's estate will produce as much posthumous music as Tupac's. Hard drives containing at least 100 unreleased songs--new and old--were taken by his sister LaToya.
- The Outside Lands Festival booked the most logical replacement for the Beastie Boys: Tenacious D.
Steven Tyler was airlifted to a hospital after falling off the stage during a performance at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, while performing "Love In An Elevator." First floor? Home decor, humiliation and public embarrassment.
- The king of teen comedy movies--whose soundtrack provided the soundtrack to many of us--has died. John Hughes was 59.
