This entire Fuji Rock 2007 concert line-up was absolutely incredible: The Cure, Beastie Boys, Iggy Pop & The Stooges, The Answer, Kings of Leon, Simian Mobile Disco, Muse, The Ataris, Groove Armada, Ash, Less Than Jake, Yellowcard, Tokyo Ska Orchestra, Peter Bjorn & John, Mika, Joss Stone and many, many more... but surprisingly enough to me (who's not even into techno at all) it was the closing act on Sunday night, The Chemical Brothers, who rocked the Echigo-Sanzan mountains of Niigata the hardest...
Utada Hikaru made her debut in December 1998 with the runaway hit single, Automatic/time will tell. Selling over two million copies soon after its release, this single put the spotlight on Hikaru. More than 9.9 million copies of her debut album First Love were shipped domestically and abroad, a new record for the Japanese music industry and one that has yet to be broken. Since then, she has recorded five original albums and 21 singles, all of which have set new records for sales. In particular, her single Flavor Of Life was downloaded more than 9 million times upon release, a world record at the time. In total, she has sold more than 50 million singles, albums and DVDs. Utada Hikaru recently announced that she is planning to take a break from recording from the end of this year. Last month EMI reached a new agreement with Hikaru and her management office for a new global recording contract for when she returns.
In just three months, the number of followers of Utada Hikaru’s Twitter account surpassed 300,000. Her latest album, Utada Hikaru SINGLE COLLECTION VOL.2 will be available on iTunes worldwide by the time of the concert.
"Utada Hikaru SINGLE COLLECTION VOL.2
now available on iTunes worldwide.
Featuring Christopher Walken as the hard-ass hit record producer THE Bruce Dickinson, Jimmy Fallon as drummer Bobby Rondinelli unable to keep a straight face or stay in character (what else is new), a harrassed Chris Parnell as lead vocalist Eric Bloom, Chris Kattan as guitarist Buck Dharma, Horatio Sanz as Joe Bouchard, and last but certainly not least Will Ferrell in the lead role as (fictional character) Gene Frenkle (on the immortal cowbell), who's inspiration was loosely based on Eric Bloom's earlier appearance/style in rock band The Blue Oyster Cult.
The gag of the sketch centers on the band trying to lay down the track for "Don't Fear The Reaper" but quickly becoming frustrated with lead cowbell player Gene Frenkle as he bumps into them and gives "a little too much" cowbell for their liking, but for producer Bruce Dickinson, there's no such thing as too much cowbell, as he repeatedly interrupts them demanding more.
The sketch that made more cowbell a household phrase and cultural phenomenon (and promises you'll never look at someone playing a cowbell the same way again).
Steve Jones of Rogue Radio hosted a live interview with Smashing Pumpkins lead singer, guitarist, and head-songwriter Billy Corgan. After breaking up in 2000, Corgan went on to form the short-lived Zwan. The Smashing Pumpkins reformed in 2006, however, after the departure of Jimmy Chamberlin in 2009, Corgan is the only original member.
