Today In Music News: Prince Is In Pain, Trent Reznor's Done With Twitter, and Monsters of Folk Are Coming...
Your daily dose of national music news for Friday, June 12, 2009...
- Prince is apparently refusing to get a double hip replacement because of his religious beliefs. So, instead of having the surgery, he's "popping pain killers and hoping it will all go away." I think that's the same thing my uncle Gary said when he was hauled of to jail.
- Trent Reznor has told Twitter, "It's not you, it's me." He's decided to stop using the social networking service because it's run by idiots.
- Jim James, Conor Oberst and M. Ward are finally putting out their collaborative album. Yes, that's right--the group known as Monsters of Folk are gonna melt your faces off.
