Ric Ocasek Gets Brazilian, plus Sonic Youth at CBGB, DeNiro Produces Missy Elliot, Hail! Hail! Chuck Berry, Boston Shall Be Re-Released

  • Ric Ocasek worked as producer on the upcoming Brazilian Girls record and played guitar on one of the tracks. Anyone want to bet his part included palm muting?
  • Sonic Youth played a show at CBGB to open their tour for Rather Ripped. Sounds rather Overt, but I'll bet it was pretty good.
  • Robert DeNiro is set to produce a Missy Elliot biopic. I love it, but when did he go crazy?
  • In case you didn't know, Chuck Berry has a dark side. Plus, he's Advanced. (After all, he did practically invent the use of Johnny, the most Advanced name in rock.)
  • The first two Boston albums are going to be re-released. I have to ask: Has there ever been a better-looking band than Boston?
