Birth of Ambient Music, plus Mick Jagger Sitcom, Mel Gibson and Leonard Cohen, Peter Bogdanovich and Tom Petty, Dictator Musical, Willie Nelson

  • There is an article about Brian Eno and the birth of ambient music here. Any Scientologist would have approved.
  • There is an in-depth look at the "Mick Jagger sitcom" at the New York Times. He's no Jeff Goldblum, I can tell you that.
  • The passion of the Cohen: Leonard Cohen is the subject of the Mel Gibson-produced Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man, which will come out June 21.
  • Peter Bogdanovich will film the upcoming Tom Petty tour. He will also wear funny-looking glasses and an ascot.
  • The Asian Dub Foundation has written an opera about Muammar Gadafy (or however you choose to spell it), which debuts in September. Break out the ski jackets!
  • Willie Nelson is being honored by the EPA for his support of biodiesel. See, some ideas you get when you're stoned actually work out.
