After the recent (and great) interview with Noel Gallagher discussing music today, he has now sat down with BBC Radio 4 for Mastertapes for more thoughts. Watch a clip here of him discussing U2's decision to give away their album and this idea in general.
"See all this started with Radiohead, didn't it, and people have been reacting to that ever since. Then everybody went mad, I remember the Kaiser Chiefs were like, 'Make your own record tracklist, we'll give you a pound.' What?! You'll give people a pound?! It remains to be seen how Coldplay react to it. I firmly believe we'll all get a knock on the door at some point over the next two years and Chris [Martin] will be stood there. And...

Jack O'Shea of Bayside has undergone spinal surgery to fix a developing injury from performing. We send our thoughts and prayers to him for a healthy recovery.
So 11 years of headbanging and playing 11lbs plus Les Paul's had led me to spine surgery. A month ago I lost most of the use of my right arm and powered through a tour in Europe. I got home and decided to see a specialist to make sure my physical therapy was correct and was rushed into surgery. I had a 3 level fusion in my cervical spine and should hopefully get most if not all of my right arm back but it's right into intense physical therapy starting next week. Also my nurse is terrible at installing IV's.

Morning Parade have broke up.
Today is our time to come clean and reveal that with great thought and heavy sadness, we as 5 individuals have decided to call time on our journey as Morning Parade.

This is not down to musical differences, nor is it down to interpersonal relationships or band disagreements. It comes down to the simple reality that at this current point, for us to continue any further would be to do so at the detriment of our friendship, our personal, emotional, mental and financial well being, as well our enjoyment of music and memories of our time as Morning Parade.

Morning Parade has given us some of our greatest memories, dream like experiences, hysterical laughter,...

I recently sat down with Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory, in which we spoke about one of his favorite bands, Madball. We talk about his first experiences with the band, the possibility of new music from Hazen St., and more. You can check it out here.
The first time I saw them live, I actually opened for them. It was Shai Hulud, this local band Brethren, and Madball at Cheers in Miami, around 96'-97'. It was really crazy, the crowd was insane.
