Misleading NME headline of the week: “RINGO STARR ‘beheaded’ in Liverpool.” (Editor’s note: It was actually a topiary of Starr. Same diff.)

Since I mentioned it in the last news round-up, I guess it’s my duty to keep you updated: SCOTT WEILAND has been booted from VELVET REVOLVER, and he’s continued his pissy little snit with the following press statement: “After reading the comment by Duff, Matt, Dave and the illustrious ‘GUITAR HERO,’ Saul Hudson, a.k.a Slash, I find it humorous that the so called four ‘founding members’ of Velvet Revolver, better known to themselves as ‘the Project’ before I officially named the band, would decide to move on without me after I had already claimed the group dead in the water on March 20 in Glasgow [blah blah blah].” Weiland closes with a tongue-in-cheek suggestion that SEBASTIAN BACH — an original candidate for the project’s lead-singer position — be brought in as his replacement. Is it just me or does that sound like a better band?
