Travis Barker, Soundwave founder trade insults over last minute drop-out

Travis Barker (of Blink 182) and Soundwave Founder AJ Maddah traded insults over Twitter last night in the latest developments in the fallout after Barker dropped out of the Soundwave festival.

Criticism has been pouring on Barker for the past week, leading him to respond that it was his fear of flying after a 2008 plane crash that is keeping him from the festival, adding “If they would’ve scheduled Australia around a boat schedule I would’ve made it. They didn’t though. They also didn’t schedule enough time to get from gig to gig without flying so I was forced not to go.”

Beastie Boys’ MCA dead at 47

We’ve got to pay our respects here. Adam Yauch, a.k.a. MCA, of the Beastie Boys has died at age 47.

The group started out as a hardcore band in 1981, before transitioning to hip-hop, and released their classic debut, “License to Ill” in 1986. They went on to release several more excellent records, becoming one of the most influential rap groups around.

Yauch was diagnosed with cancer in his parotid (salivary) gland in 2009, which forced them to cancel several tour dates and push back the release of “Hot Sauce Committee, Part 2.” The band was recently inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. Yauch has also worked as a director, both on his own projects and on Beastie Boys’ videos under the name Nathaniel Hornblower.

As a tribute, watch a few of the group’s videos here. R.I.P. MCA.

Tyler, the Creator responds to Steve Albini’s rant

Tyler, the Creator from OFWGKTA has responded to the legendary Steve Albini’s rant about how unpleasant they are (you can read the original here). Rather than writing a well-thought piece Tyler chose instead to tell his side of the story through a series of Twitter posts, referring to Albini as “Albino” and “Old Ass”. Tyler also asks “What’s good with Rapeman?”, a reference to Albini’s old band who have been defunct for over twenty years. You can have a look at the Twitter posts in full here.
