Lou Reed: Infidel, plus Young Alice Cooper, Sonic Youth Rules Universe, Norway Hates iTunes, Y-String Guitar, Nutty Professor Musical

  • A new friend of Advanced Theory Blog sent me a couple of interesting comments: "What was more advanced than Lou Reed performing the Bob Dylan bootleg, Christian classic 'Foot of Pride'?” and "Lou Reed once said in an interview that his favorite Dylan was the Slow TrainInfidels period." So nice when people get it!
  • Cool Noise wants you to remember that Alice Cooper used to mean something different. Of course, we love golfing Alice, but it is good to have a reminder of why we love him.
  • The world's most Overt paper, the Village Voice, proclaims Sonic Youth as "the best band in the universe." That may be true, but I still can't listen to them for more than fifteen minutes at a time.
  • Norway's ombudsman says iTunes DRM is illegal. I didn't know countries had ombudsmen. Wait, should I have one?
  • Something tells me this guitar is going to show up on stage with a lot of Advanced musicians.
  • I'm just going to copy and paste this because nothing else is needed: "Jerry Lewis, who played 'The Nutty Professor' in 1963, has a wacky new scheme: staging the film as a Broadway musical. The first show is planned for January at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, where the 80-year-old comedian has a houseboat, he said."
