IGGY POP FILM SCRAPPED

The planned movie about IGGY POP, with former hobbit Elijah Wood playing Iggy, is no longer happening. Iggy himself put a stop to the biopic film, although a documentary about his life, directed by Jim Jarmusch, is still in the works.

About the scrapping of the film, Iggy told Australia’s ‘Triple J Radio’:

“It’s nothing against Elijah, and the script was OK, but they sort of wanted me to jump out of cakes and do promotional things and I didn’t really want to get involved. (Plus), I didn’t think it was time for someone else to tell our story because, inevitably, it’s not just my story, it’s everybody I worked with.

“When I’m dead then people can do that to me (make a movie). If somebody did want to make a biopic of me, I think they should get Lindsay Lohan, actually. She looks like me and she’s the only one with enough attitude, too. They could tape her boobs up or something. She’s been in jail at the right age and everything, so I thought she could do it.”

BILLY IDOL MEMOIRS

BILLY IDOL is set to write his memoirs and see the autobiography, titled ‘Dancing With Myself’, published through Touchstone in about a year.

Idol commented,

“Life gave me a golden key when I fell in love with rock n roll music. It was the key to the answer of how to live and achieve your dreams. This world opened up to me with all the good opportunities but also every temptation – the drugs, the booze, the women, the 24-hour around-the-clock excess. And yet you have to write good songs to survive. Life had to be lived to do all that! Now I’m putting it all down in book form – from the heart. I’m going out on a limb here, so watch my back”.

GARY NUMAN-TOURING PRINCIPLE

 GARY NUMAN  DVD: The Touring Principle '79  Label: Mortal Records  Release Date: 29 November, 2010    Gary Numan – two headline shows @ Back To The Phuture: 2 December Manchester Academy with Recoil, Motor and DJ set by Richard H Kirk (Cabaret Voltaire); 3 Troxy London with John Foxx, The Whip, Motor and DJ set by Richard H Kirk.  * Gary Numan, Recoil (featuring Alan Wilder from Depeche Mode) and John Foxx are available for interviews.  Gary Numan's The Touring Principle '79 captures the spectacular shows and innovative music that made his one of the biggest stars in the world at the end of the 1970s. Recorded at London's Hammersmith Odeon on 28 September 1979, this is one of those very special moments in rock when new ideas completely change the music scene. These concerts mark the transformation of synthesizer music from the post-punk underground into massive international success without the need for any compromise. From the towers of white light to the icy electronics, everything in this show is designed to be powerful, different, atmospheric and unique.  Three decades later, there's still nothing quite like it, which is why new acts and fans continue to discover and be influenced by many of the concepts, sounds and visuals on The Touring Principle. This concert was originally released as the first ever music video-cassette and that original film featuring the 'special effects' of the time has been included on this DVD as a bonus feature, along with an exclusive Numan interview about the 1979 tour. However, the main feature on this DVD is taken from the original master before any 'effects' were added. Digitally remastered along with the audio, this represnts the definitive document of Gary Numan's visonary show.

MICK JONES TO SAVE 100 CLUB?

Mick Jones Bemoans 100 Club’s Troubles


It should come as no surprise that Mick Jones isn’t too happy to hear that the 100 Club may be forced to shut its doors.

The singer/guitarist of Carbon Silicon told said that he’d be on board if any rescue efforts for the club were made. Jones, of course, was a member in The Clash when the 100 Club was the epicenter of London’s punk revolution.

The iconic rock club, which has been open for nearly 70 years, may be forced to close because of rent and rates rises. theres a facebook page running to help the cause too. Vive Le 100 club!!!
