“Fame Kills” to Lollapalooza ‘04: A Guide to Big Tour Cancellations

October 7th, 2009
Fans are still questioning exactly what derailed the Fame Kills tour featuring Kanye West and Lady Gaga that was set to launch next month (is it possible not enough fans wanted to see Gaga’s outrageous outfits?). Sometimes shows are called off for obvious reasons (an artist’s injury) but often the excuses are more fuzzy (like the always-reliable “exhaustion”). Here’s a rundown of other big-name events that were suddenly squashed: Led Zeppelin Tour (1975): After the success ...

The French duo get help from session drummer Joey Waronker, who’s currently teaming up with Thom Yorke in the Radiohead frontman’s new band featuring Flea and Nigel Godrich.

Breaking: Band of Skulls

October 7th, 2009
Who: Band of Skulls, a British trio whose shit-kicking, bare-bones brand of gritty rock & roll earned them a spot on the hugely anticipated soundtrack to the next Twilight movie, New Moon.
