Billboard profiles Eytan Oren, the man who helps pair up tech-brands with bands. Because why else would anyone use Kik?
Kytan Oren was one of the first to realize their revenue potential for brands and bands. "There are a lot of people that won't pay for music, but they'll pay $1.99 for your branded sticker emoji pack," says Oren, who left his position as director of partnerships at IPG Media Labs in September to start his own social media integration service, Block Party.

Isaiah "Ikey" Owens (The Mars Volta) has passed while on tour with Jack White.
It is with great sadness that we tell the world of the passing of the incredible musician Isaiah "Ikey" Owens. He will be missed and loved forever by his family, friends, bandmates and fans. Ikey Owens was an astounding keyboard player in Jack White's backing band. He also played with Mars Volta, Free Moral Agents, and many other projects. Out of respect for Ikey, the remaining shows of the Jack White Tour in Mexico have been cancelled. We will all miss you Ikey. You were and are an incredible artist.

Consequence of Sound is reporting that Black Flag's Greg Ginn has been accusted of child abuse by his ex-wife.

According to TMZ, Kesha has filed a lawsuit against producer Dr. Luke for alleged sexual assault and battery.
In one instance, Kesha claims he forced her to snort something before getting on a plane … and during the trip he forced himself on her while she was drugged. On another occasion, Kesha claims after forcing her to drink with him, Dr. Luke gave her what he called "sober pills." Kesha claims she woke up the following afternoon, naked in Dr. Luke's bed, sore, sick … and with no memory of how she got there.

Purevolume recently sat down with Chad from New Found Glory.
I wouldn’t say stale, because I’m very grateful for our career. But you’re writing the same way for a long time, of course there are going to be things that feel a little bit more routine and comfortable. I think that’s what the song “Selfless” is about. I know — and I don’t mean this in a conceited way — we’ve created this subgenre of music. So, I’m comfortable knowing that I can write songs that I know our fans and people will be into, but that was from a safe point. Now I’m going to push myself without this new way of writing out of this safe zone. “Selfless” is a declaration of where we see ourselves and where we want to be.

Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols recently released his autobiography. Telegraph takes a look at it.
This book is ridiculous on so many levels that I am not sure it even counts as a criticism: this is a man who clearly revels in his own ridiculousness. Telegraph rock journalist Andrew Perry is Lydon’s ghostwriter and has made the decision to preserve his subject’s spoken style as closely as possible. The result reads like a marathon pub rant, by turns defiant, whiny, sentimental, angry, funny, clever, stupid, repetitive, self-contradictory and borderline delusional, unfolding in lateral jumps and delivered with the garbled bravado of someone whose command of English is not quite as...
