Just some of the rock stars dead at 27

Numbers say rock is deadly


Warning: Playing rock and roll music is hazardous to your health … or so says some lab coat shrinks over in England who spend too much time crunching numbers and looking for causality in the wrong places. The group of researchers looked at 15-hundred different music groups spanning multiple music genres. Of those, 137 stars had died, or 9.2 percent. What about that notorious 27 club that Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse are part of? Well, the actual average age for rock star deaths is 45.2 for US rock stars. It was even earlier for European performers. Solo acts had twice the death rate than members of bands.


Expected economic impact


Metallica hopes to revitalize Detroit’s economy, at least for a few days, by bringing the motor city their second annual Orion Music + More Festival. The band released a 41-second trailer featuring footage from the first festival held this year in Atlantic City. Plans are to bring the festival to Detroit June 8-9th, 2013. There’s no indication of who’ll be joining Metallica for the two-day festival, but it’s sure to be off the hook.



Nice gag gift


If you’re a fan of the mellow stylings of Bush’s “Glycerin” and also a fan of No Doubt’s Gwen Stefani, then you’re in luck. Earlier this month, Gavin Rosdale and Stefani performed the song together on stage to an unsuspecting audience. There’s fan shot footage complete with screams from wannabe tweener girls and other obsessed fans. Now you can download the duet on iTunes. You could get it as gag gift for someone. I’ll think I’ll take a pass on that one.
