Speaker Box (12/16 – 12/19)



According to Paramore’s Web site, the Farrow brothers, guitarist Josh and drummer Zac, have left the band.

“A couple of months ago, Josh and Zac let us know they would be leaving the band after our show in Orlando last Sunday. None of us were really shocked. For the last year it hasn’t seemed as if they wanted to be around anymore.”

The ramaining members of the group let be known that they do not intend to disband.

“We want Josh and Zac to do something that makes them happy and if that isn’t here with us, then we support them finding happiness elsewhere. But we never for a second thought about leaving any of this behind. We really hope that you can be encouraged by the fact that the three of us who are still here are ready to take on another chapter of our journey together.”

No replacements for the Farro brothers have been announced.

Vampire Weekend Cover Cheryl Cole

Vampire Weekend covered Cheryl Cole’s “Fight For This Love.”  There are horns involved.  It’s pretty good.  I give it to you.

Dave Grohl Plays With Muppets

According to Kerrang Magazine, Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Them Crooked Vultures, Nirvana, Tenacious D) will make a cameo in the new Muppets film that is due out about a year from now.

Apparently, the muppets will be putting on a show in the film to save their film studio.  The headlining act will be none other than Electric Mayhem, of course, however, Animal will be unable to perform due to his anger management treatment.  That’s where Grohl comes in.

The film will also feature appearances by Jack Black and Ricky Gervais.  Look for it.

Damon Albarn Talks About New Gorillaz Album

Damon Albarn is calling the new Gorillaz album that was recorded and mixed on an Ipad and will be available for free download on Christmas morning Fall.  Albarn wanted to name the album “October” but U2 already did it.  So he chose the season in which it was recorded…Fall.
