Your daily dose of national music news for Monday, October 26, 2009...
- Does Hall & Oates belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Maybe yes. Maybe no. But is it really a good idea to have Rachel Ray taking up the cause of getting them nominated?
- Morrissey collapsed on stage due to breathing difficulties in England. Funny, I would've thought it would've been some sort of emotional breakdown.
- If there is one thing the guys in Weezer have gotten good at lately, it's throwing their fans curve balls. The band enlisted Mr. Smooth Jazz himself, Kenny G, to play with the group on an upcoming AOL Session.
