Weekend Reading 2/20/09

Duff McKagan stopped in for a brief chat at Rolling Stone this week. Read his take on Steven Adler's foray into reality TV and the possibility of a Guns n' Roses reunion.

Riley reviewed the album here. Now go read the interview with Dan Auerbach over at Aquarium Drunkard.

We could post it for you, but it's been covered at every other music blog out there. Go check out Springsteen's video for "The Wrestler." The guys at Consequence of Sound have a good take and you can wonder with the rest of us why it wasn't nominated for Best Song come Sunday's 81st edition of the Oscars.

Listen to a Pearl Jam's remastered "Porch" and Ten outtake "Brother" in anticipation of the March 24th reissue of Ten over at Rolling Stone's Smoking Section.

Steve Earle talks guitars and bonsai trees with the folks at American Songwriter Magazine.

Chris Martin dubbed it the best encore ever. I’m not sure I’d go that far. Check it out for yourselves. Coldplay, The Killers, and Bono at the Brit Awards. Videos at the Huffington Post.


  1. The Wrestler wasn't nominated for Best Song because the song was in the closing credits, and not the movie. Not an automatic disqualification, but it's an important factor. That said, it's better than the the Slumdog stuff... which was also in the closing credits.

  2. Best encore ever?!?!?! No Way...I didn't see one Marshal Amp up can't be true
