Avril Lavigne Vs. Robert Smith, New Rufus Wainwright Album, Axl Rose, Against Me!
- "Avril Lavigne Vs. Robert Smith: Whose Alice Song Is Better?" asks BeatCrave, in regard to tracks off the new Alice in Wonderland soundtrack for the Tim Burton-helmed remake out March 5. Lavigne penned "Alice (Underground)." Smith's "Very Good Advice" is a very cool cover of a number from the 1951 Disney animated classic. My pick for favorite song? The original version of "Very Good Advice." There's a certain rich sadness to it that not even the Cure front man can recreate.
- World's greatest male vocalist Rufus Wainwright "has revealed that his sixth full-length studio record, All Days Are Nights: Songs for Lulu, will hit shelves on 4/20 in the U.S., 4/5 in the U.K., and 3/23 in Canada," reports TwentyFourBit.
- "Axl Rose refutes rumors, announces new manager in supersize tweet," reports Rolling Stone. I know, I know, it's just "Axl and Friends" but I would still like to see GNR play SoCal after finishing with South America and Sweden.
