On the music scene: Velvet Revolver cancelled a tour, why Paul
McCartney wasn't at the Beatles tribute last night, and
details on the fate of Death Row Records.
Hi everyone Andrea Rene here for get the daily**** and you're
watching the music news.
Rock group Velvet Revolver have cancelled their upcoming
Australian tour because their frontman, Scott Weiland, is
entering a Rehab facility! Weiland voluntarily entered a rehab
facility last week after a Los Angeles performance. Weiland
has had multiple drug arrests in the past and has also already
successfuly, or maybe not so successfully, completed a drug
rehab program back in 2003. Fans are hoping his rehab issues
won't interfere with a promised Stone Temple Pilots reunion
planned for later this year. Meanwhile, Velvet Revolver will
be back on tour in March.
Iconic Beatles singer Paul McCartney is in court today, and
thus couldn't be at the Grammy's ceremony last night with
Ringo. It kicks off the five day divorce battle between him
and his ex-wife Heather Mills. After dumping her lawyers,
Mills will represent herself as she attempts to collect 50
million pounds from McCartney after just four years of
marriage. The singer is worth an estimated 825 million pounds,
or 1.6 billion dollars, so the money isn't going to be a huge
loss for him, but it could set a precednet in measuring how
much money spouses can ask for in settlements. An outcome is
expected later in the week.
Rap star and super producer Dr. Dre wants an investigation
into the failing record label Death Row Records. He said he
needs to determine how much the label owes him for unpaid
royalties from his albums. He's had similar claims denied by
the court system in the past but was recently granted an
appeal for the dismissal of one of those suits. The dispute
over royalties focuses on his 1992 album "The Chronic," which
was granted distribution to other companies without his
permission. Problem is Death Row Records is trying to sell to
Warner Music Group which could further complicate Dr. Dre's
attempt to get back millions of dollars allegedly owed to him.
