Now Johnny Cash Has Been Everywhere, plus the Who at Glastonbury, Frank Black Fakes It, Martin Short on Broadway, "Top of the Pops" Popped

  • Hear Johnny Cash's last song on MySpace. The world has changed a tad in the last fifty or so years.
  • Pete Townshend wants the Who to headline Glastonbury next July. It's going to be hard to top Kylie Minogue (though it might be fun to try).
  • Frank Black says the songs he tried to write for the Pixies sound kind of "fakey." I can almost guarantee that most people would like those songs better than what he has done as a solo artist. Not because they're better, mind you.
  • You're going to have to wait one more week to catch Martin Short on Broadway. Meanwhile, I'm on Broadway right now!
  • Top of the Pops is getting the axe after 42 years. Maybe if they had more axe, the show would still be going strong.

Here's an idea for Frank Black.
Just write some songs "the way they come out" and have the Pixies play 'em. Might be too advanced.
