Lennon Letter auctioned, plus Failed Amplifiers, Jack White Leaves Detroit, The Who Are So Bootleg, National Review's Top 50 Conservative Rock Songs

  • A letter written by John Lennon to a journalist who accused The Beatles of ripping off black music has sold at auction for £12,000. The buyer? Chuck Berry.
  • There is nothing funnier than a failed amplifier. (Thanks to Music Thing)
  • Jack White is leaving Detroit because he "just can't take the negativity anymore." He is talking about people who don't think the Tigers can keep playing so well.
  • Pete Townsend says the Who will bootleg themselves on their upcoming tour because "they fucking can."
  • The National Review has compiled a list of the 50 greatest conservative rock songs, number one being "Won't Get Fooled Again." When asked why they did the list, Kathryn Jean Lopez said, "because we fucking can."
