Bob Dylan's Album Leak, plus Tom Waits Hates Online Auctions, Ringo Starr on Ringo Starr, Walter Becker on Rock, Bunny Wailer the Explorer

  • Sony accidentally mad available30-second clips of Bob Dylan's new album at their music store. Luckily, nobody uses the Sony music store, so no harm done.
  • If you're a online-auction-ticket punter and you want to see Tom Waits, you're out of luck.
  • See what Ringo Starr has to say about the ninth All-Star tour, drum solos, being in a band, and some other stuff.
  • "Why did we come here? We came here to rock!" -Walter Becker (sadly for his Advanced status, he was joking)
  • Now here's a switch: Bunny Wailer is going to take a break from reggae and explore "hip-hop, R&B, rap, you name it." I wonder if he wants revenge for all of those misguided attempts by pop stars to explore reggae.

I notice the Dylan link says that he hasn't put out an album in 10 years, which is crazy because he's put out two of them. Two pretty good ones, I might add. Good work, Launch!
