Your daily dose of national music news for Tuesday, July 21, 2009...
- Looks like all those years of Zen, snowboarding and clean livin' didn't do Adam Yauch any good--he's been diagnosed with cancer. The band;s tour has been canceled, and its album has been put on hold.
- Chris Brown wants us all to know he's "truly, truly sorry" for the "incident" with Rhianna. He must mean it since he made a video, right?
- When I think of The Killers, I often think about how I shouldn't traffic anyone into the sex trade. Looks like The Killers think the same thing.
