The Groupie Hall of Fame is amusing reading.

Rock and roll conspiracy? One dude seems to think Paul Westerberg is to blame for one person’s death.

Here’s an interesting interview with Liam Finn, who is like the new It-boy and if you don’t know that you’ve been living under a bigger rock than I have, where the interview claims to have listened to nothing but the ‘Mats and Tom Waits for a year.

iTunes and Immiseration
from The Atlantic about the possibility of an iTunes all you can listen to subscription plan, manages to mention the ‘Mats and Smoo (Schmoo here). How rad is that?

Entertainment Weekly lists the Indie 25, bands that defined each year from 1984 to the present.

Licorice Pizza has “It Ain’t Over Until the Fat Roadie Sings” available for download.


I am the queen of the underground, a bad ungrateful bunny.

    Did paul get it on with winona ryder?

  • Jimdracula says:

    The way it’s written, is there anyone Winona Ryder didn’t get it on with? Bet a lot of it is bullshit.

    Westerberg was once asked if Winona ever stole anything from him, & he replied “My time.”lol…Also recall Laurie Lindeen writing uncharitably that Ryder sent him gifts in the mail so…your guess is as bad as mine.

    yeah…and tommy too.

    From some webpage about Winona:
    She has been linked with singer-songwriter Ryan Adams, millionaire Dodi al-Fayed, Beck, Bono, Edward Burns, George Clooney, Green Day’s Tre Cool, Lemonhead Evan Dando, Daniel Day-Lewis, Robert Downey, Jr., David Duchovny, Counting Crows’ Adam Duritz, Jakob Dylan, Jimmy Fallon, Nirvana’s Dave Grohl, Corey Haim, Helmet’s Page Hamilton, Chris Isaak, Stephan Jenkins, Old 97’s Rhett Miller, Chris Noth, Conor Oberst, Erik Schrody (aka Everlast), Charlie Sheen, Mark Wahlberg, rocker Paul Westerberg, White Stripes’ Jack White, Bruce Willis, and musician Pete Yorn. Courtney Love once remarked, “You’re no-one in music until you have feuded with me or until you sleep with Winona”.

  • Jimdracula says:

    Hell, I would of dated Winona but the line was too long…

  • jay says:
