Death: Scott Weiland dead of a heart attack at 48 years old. I was usually not a huge Scott an except for one year: in 1996 Stone Temple Pilots had Tiny Music… Songs From The Vatican Gift Shop under their belt and performed at MSG. “Pop’s Love Suicide”, “Big Bang Baby”, “Trippin’ On A Hole In A Paper Heart”… they were not for sale as they defined glam grunge in their own image. The greatest band in the world.
Live: Yes, Bruce Springsteen mini tour in aid of The River… I’ll be there one way or the other. Even for the long arty ones…
Recorded: I’ve had Complete Them on heavy rotation, 69 tracks -I didn’t even realize they’d recorded that many!!! Van may have been the reason but he wasn’t the only reason, it is lIrish garage blues played wrong.
Sports: Knicks beat the Nets but what is going on with the Rangers? After the best run of wins in franchise (co-equal) came to an end, they’ve fallen apart. Giants versus Jets – if they Giants can’t take the Jets you can kiss this season goodbye.
Congrats: To North West, the proud sister of a baby brother. She looks so much like her dad when she scowls it isn’t funny.
More Death: The great character actor Robert Loggia was 85.
