Your daily dose of national music news for Monday, December 29, 2008...
- DJ AM got into the Christmas spirit a little early this year. On Christmas Eve, he not only sued Goodyear, Learjet and the charter company he used for the flight that crashed and left him and drummer Travis Barker severely burned--he's also suing the estates of the two deceased pilots. I'm sure their families won't need any of that insurance money. Yoink/happy holidays!
- Sean "Puffy/Puff Daddy/P. Diddy/Diddy" Combs and Ciroc Ultra Premium Vodka are offering $1 million dollars for someone to redesign the New Years Eve ball that drops in Times Square. Let's just hope they look better than the shitty alternate uni's Combs "designed" for the Mavericks.
- A music promoter behind the Dubai Rocks Festival apparently wants The Darkness to reunite. Why? I guess the world just hasn't had enough songs about venereal disease... --Lance Lester
