Your daily dose of national music news for Friday, June 19, 2009...
- Do you think David Lynch writes lyrics that are as weird as his movies? Well, we're all about to find out: He's coming out with his own rock album. Well, sort of--he actually just wrote the lyrics.
- Limp Bizkit is back after a four-year hiatus that Fred Durst says was spurred by people misinterpreting his lyrics and using them to bully people. Hmmm... the whole time, I thought it was because people stopped liking his band.
- Michael Jackson seeks a disabled child to join him on stage for his O2 Arena run. The jokes write themselves, really.
