RIP Mike Starr, former bassist for Alice in Chains.

This is not a hoax: Epitonic has a new track by the Wrens. We repeat: This is not a hoax.

Spinner has an interview with David Johansen about the forthcoming New York Dolls album. Dancing Backwards in High Heels is due out March 15.

Abbey Roads Studios is having an anthemic contest in honor of its 80th birthday.

Consequence of Sound features a glowing review of the new, much-delayed Lupe Fiasco record.

Hobart Brothers & Lil' Sis Hobart debuts at SXSW. The band features Jon Dee Graham, Freedy Johnston and Susan Cowsill. They'll be appearing at the Twangfest and KDHX Day Parties at Jovita's.

Buzz band Yuck isn't breaking up, but main Yucker, Daniel Blumberg, has a new side project called Oupa.

Phil Collins is quitting music. He says the decision has nothing to do with "dodgy reviews." Then again, maybe he's not retiring after all. Critics need to try harder.

Pitchfork has details on a "lost album" by psych-folk rockers Love. Black Beauty is due out June 7.

File sharing site, Limewire, has settled a law suit with the music publishers who shut it down.

The Beale St. Music Festival announces a solid lineup, with the Flaming Lips, Wilco, Mumford and Sons and MGMT among others.

Liam Gallagher is giving interviews about his new band Beady Eye.

Reuters has details of Robbie Robertson's forthcoming memoirs.

Rob Zombie will not be directing a Motley Crue film.

Forgive the acknowledgement of the horror movie that is Charlie Sheen, but the Roots remix is too good not to share. And if you really need more Tigerblood remixing, Jeff Weiss at Pop & Hiss ranks the winning.
