Yanni Arrested for Alleged Domestic Abuse

"New-age" musician Yanni (pronounced "Yawn-ee") has been arrested down in F-L-A for alleged domestic abuse. Details and mug shot are linked here courtesy of The Smoking Gun.

If these allegations are true, his punishment should be confinement in a locked room, forced to listen to his own music. (Hell, even if the allegations aren't true!)

CSNY in 2006? (Update)

It's all but official that Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young (pictured here in 1974 - can't you just get a 'contact high' looking at this picture?) will be touring this year.

The Orlando Sentinal reported that Graham Nash broke the news at a recent media event for the Photographers Who Rock. "We're likely going to do 15 dates in Europe and then 35 in the states and the tour likely will focus on outdoor sheds and arenas'' Nash said. The U.S. portion is likely to start in late June.

Last month Neil Young also hinted at a new CSNY album and tour for 2006. Some die-hard Young fans on The Rust List detest CS&N and don't understand why Y wastes his time with them. The think Neil can do no wrong and would much rather see him tour with Crazy Horse.

All I know is, I'm in for CSNY'06 (and the' Horse' if it's gonna happen).

Sealed With a Kiss? - NOT!

Paul and Heather McCartney (photo left, with seal) squared off with Newfoundland and Labrador(Canada) Premier Danny Williams last night on "Larry King Live" in a heated debate over the hunting of seals.

"This is about propaganda. This is about using superstars like your husband," Mr. Williams said during one heated exchange with Mrs. McCartney.

"We're not here for propaganda," she replied, cutting Williams off mid-sentence. Ouch!

John Gleeson has a biting criticism of Sir Paul's latest cause in the Winnipeg Sun. Ouch again!
