Quiet Riot Singer dead at 52

By malcolm Published: November 26, 2007

AP is reporting that Kevin DuBrow, lead singer for 80's pop-metal band Quiet Riot has died in his home.
An autopsy was pending to determine the cause of death.

Per the story:
"I'm at a loss for words. I've just lost my best friend," Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali told CNN. "Out of respect for both Kevin and his family, I won't comment further. There's going to be a lot of speculation out there, and I won't add to that. I love him too much."

Alicia Keys brings old(er) school Dancehall to American Music Awards

By malcolm Published: November 20, 2007

First am I the only person who hadn't seen one single promo about The American Music Awards Sunday night broadcast?

It completely flew under my radar, which frankly, is kind of embarrassing.
Anyway while flipping channels between Patriots touchdowns (Pats 56-Bills 10) I tried to check out some of the goings on at the AMAs including (Usher Jr.) Chris Brown's highly aerobic black light workout with a (rare vocoderless) T-Pain (is he trying to take up the "vocoder singer" mantle left by the late Roger Troutman?).
I also caught Sugarland and Beyonce's twang-pop take on the latter's Irreplaceable and besides the rare opportunity to see Beyonce in tight blue jeans (mmmm....tight blue jeans) it was fun to listen to Miss B clip her phrases and reign in her usually raging melisma to stay in time with the bouncy, back porch beat.
