ATB: Stooges Reunion, Snoop Dogg and Jason Alexander, Yes Reunion, Herb Albert (This Is the Remix), Solomon Burke, Joey Ramone Benefit

  • Sounds like a fun house: Iggy Pop is "holed up in a little cottage in the boonies on a little river" in Florida writing music with the Stooges.
  • The cure for the Seinfeld curse: Snoop Dogg and Jason Alexander are "set to team up for a quirky new horror comedy about a doomed Los Angeles neighbourhood."
  • Change the name to Maybe: The future of Yes looks shaky now that their planned 2006 reunion tour has been scrapped.
  • Rewhip it good: Herb Alpert's album Whipped Cream and Other Delights has been remixed by Madeski, Martin and Wood, and Dust Brothers Anthony Marinelli and John King.
  • Big country: Solomon Burke got help from Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, Gillian Welch and Patty Griffin on his upcoming album.
  • Finally, the Strokes, the Dictators' Andy Shernoff, and Marshall Crenshaw will perform at the Joey Ramone Birthday Benefit next month.
