Your daily dose of national music news for Tuesday, December 30, 2008...
- My life is over. Yes, it's over. The indie powerhouses known as Zooey Dechannel (She & Him) and Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie) are apparently (read: allegedly) engaged. He apparently popped the question on Christmas. The most wonderful time of the year my ass. I loved you Zooey!
- It seems the boys in "Guns N Roses" are going to tour for at least two years. Maybe. And it may start in March. We'll see. Of course, this is all dependent on Axl Rose coming out of hiding long enough to play a show.
- Wanna see your favorite indie band play in your town? Well, it might help if you offer them a place to stay. You never know, may that guy from Of Montreal could would crash at your place. As long as he can borrow some makeup.
- Jay-Z and his partners can't build a $370 million dollar luxury hotel in Manhattan now because of the slumping economy. And you thought getting laid off sucked. Ask Jigga, he knows all about problems. He has 99 of them. --Lance Lester
