Saturday Night! Lots on!

Sorry about the lack of recent updates; the production of the March edition of the Suited and Booted magazine has taken all our time!

Sex Pistols Turn Down Honour
LOS ANGELES According to this Reuters report; The Sex Pistols have opted out of appearing at their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The groundbreaking English punk rock group officially declined the honour -- to be handed out March 13 at a dinner and performance at the Waldorf Astoria in New York -- in a crudely scrawled, mispunctuated handwritten message posted on the band's Web site Friday.
"Next to the SEX PISTOLS rock and roll and that hall of fame is a piss stain," the statement read. "Your museum. Urine in wine. Were (sic) not coming. Were (sic) not your monkey and so what?"

The statement slammed Hall of Fame voters as "music industry people," and excoriated the high price of attending the exclusive event -- $25,000 for a table, "or $15,000 to squeak up in the gallery."

It concluded, "Your (sic) not paying attention. Outside the sh*t-stem is a real SEX PISTOL."
Other 2006 inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame include Black Sabbath, Blondie, Miles Davis, Lynyrd Skynyrd and industry executives Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss.

Susan Evans, executive director of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, said of the band's announcement, "They're being the outrageous punksters that they are, and that's rock 'n' roll."

Billionth song downloaded from US online iTunes music store

SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - US-based Apple Computers crossed the billion-song threshold at its internationally popular online iTunes music store.

The billionth song officially sold from the Internet music shop was "Speed of Sound" by the British band Coldplay. It was downloaded by a man in the US state of Michigan, according to Apple.

Coldplay? Why would it have to be Coldplay? If things got anymore middle of the road they would be run over!

Have a fun weekend.
