More Craig Kilborn wanting Moz to do a duet with Merv Griffin
Craig Kilborn wants Morrissey to sing Little Drummer Boy with Merv Griffin on his show, just like David Bowie did with Bing Crosby a million years ago. It seems that they contacted Moz's people (their words, not mine) and he will be out of the country until the new year. Kilborn said that he will be looking for another British icon.
"Asleep" at a Deftones show
Just kind of interesting. On October 31, Deftones played a show in San Diego, CA. During the set change before Deftones came on stage the final songs played over the PA was "Asleep." Though it probably was not at the request of Deftones, it was very nice and calmed the crowed just before the lights went down. It was also a nice way for the show to begin being that Morrissey and the Smiths are major influences of Deftones' singer Chino.
"Billy Budd" beer is not to be
A-B Wins Suit Against “Billy Budd”
Concord, New Hampshire-AP) -- Chalk up a court victory for St. Louis-based Anheuser-Busch.
A federal judge in New Hampshire has ruled that a New Hampshire brewery cannot use the name "Billy Budd" for its ale, because beer drinkers might confuse it with the "Bud" family of beers.
The judge ruled against Caught-On-Bleu Incorporated of Franconia, New Hampshire in a trademark infringement lawsuit brought last year by Anheuser-Busch, maker of Budweiser.
The judge did not award attorney's fees to Anheuser-Busch, however, saying the nation's largest brewery failed to show the owners of Caught-On-Bleu intentionally and maliciously tried to capitalize on the "Bud" trademark.
