Phil Everly's (The Everly Brothers) last ever interview, where he talked about Billie Joe and Norah Jones' Foreverly record, can be found on Paste.
Well, the two pieces that I have heard are just really, really sensational, really good. I heard “That Silver Haired Daddy of Mine” the other day, and they did it a little faster, and it’s really quite interesting. It’s one of my favorite songs, anyway, but it was always hard for me. On the last tour my brother and I did in England, we were doing an acoustic set in the middle of it, and we would do that one. And it’s a real hard song to sing—it just brings up that…that emotional feeling. But Billie Joe and Norah do a great job with it.

This is your chance to win 'em before you can buy them, since tickets don't go on sale until late next week via Ticketmaster. How do you win? In the replies, tell us what one of these bands means to YOU as a fan and music lover. We'll pick our favorite response. Make sure to designate which show you are able to attend as well. Good luck!

When your first show is playing a date on Warped Tour, you're doing something right. Connecticut's Moving Brooklyn is looking to create an immediate impact and hoping the band's debut EP Intervals does just that. Produced by John Naclerio (Brand New, We Are The In Crowd, The Audition) the band channels a mid to late 2000s sound that we have come to appreciate from acts like Spitalfield, Northstar, and Anberlin. Listen to "Divorce Rock Record" in the replies.

Update: The official announcement video – featuring members of both FOB and Paramore – can be seen in the replies. Presale tickets go on sale Monday, Jan. 13, with general public tickets going on sale Friday, Jan. 17.

Looks like someone screwed up: a Fall Out Boy tour announcement video, one that contains the routing for an upcoming tour with Paramore, was posted online for a brief moment and then deleted. Some fans caught screen captures. Just can't catch a break with leaks can they? If I was a betting man I'd say tomorrow will see the full video / announcement.

The blogger who leaked Guns n Roses' Chinese Democracy explains how he did it.
Within 30 minutes or so of confirming that the tracks were legit, they were up on Antiquiet.com. I didn't put a ton of thought into this act, but I knew this much: As I've said, If I were to simply announce that I had the tracks, no one would believe it. My intent was not to spread it, but to allow it to be played through a streaming player to obliterate any doubt. I knew I was starting a fire, and that original editorial does a pretty good job of laying out the mindset behind my actions. But I didn't think it through past that.

A high-school student has been suspended in Oklahoma for "casting a magic spell" ... yeah, this isn't music related, it's just weird. If she's not a witch, she should have to prove it.
The American Civil Liberties Union said it had filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on behalf of student Brandi Blackbear, charging that the assistant principal of Union Intermediate High School in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, suspended her for 15 days last December for supposedly casting a spell.

Update: This article is from 2000, but I just came across it today and didn't see the year. She ended up losing the suit in 2002.

Ever heard of Lights Over Paris? Yeah, me either. However, apparently the lead singer, Robert Mawhinney, has managed to scam not only banks but everyone into thinking he has all the money in the world for tours, albums, and videos. No one came to the shows but they were sold out since he would buy all the tickets. And even weider? This guy started all of this because he really wanted to be the next Blink-182.

You can stream a new song from Unwed here.
Unwed brings together several veterans from 1990s post hardcore: bassist Jason Black hails from Hot Water Music, vocalist Neltie Penman was once HWM's tour manager, drummer Jeff Gensterblum played in Small Brown Bike, and guitarist Arty Shepard performs in Primitive Weapons. "Made Of", their first single out on No Idea, sounds like sailor-tattooed road warriors growing up without growing old.

Insane Clown Posse is suing the FBI over classifying the "juggalos" as a gang.
Horrorcore-rap duo Insane Clown Posse, along with four fans, are suing the Department of Justice and the FBI, demanding that the agencies purge the fan name "Juggalos" from their list of gang members. "Organized crime is by no means part of the Juggalo culture," reads the complaint, filed this morning in federal court in Detroit.

In 1963 Studs Terkel interviewed a 21 year old Bob Dylan, the recording on this can be found in the replies.
Bob Dylan is a notoriously tough person to interview and that's definitely the case here, even this early in his life as a public persona. On the other hand, Terkel is a veteran interviewer, one of the best ever, and he seems genuinely impressed with the young man who was just 21 at the time and had but one record of mainly covers under his belt. Terkel does a good job of keeping things on track as he expertly gets out of the way and listens while gleaning what he can from his subject. It's an interesting match-up.
