Madonna/Guy No Prenup

Madonna Didn't Have A Prenup

by Paul Cashmere - June 26 2008

The Madonna / Guy Ritchie divorce is going to hurt the pop star. The word is that Madonna and Guy Ritchie do not have a prenuptial agreement.

Under UK law, the general rule is that in divorce, the assets are split 50/50.

This is indeed going to be costly for the material girl.

Madonna's is estimated to be worth more than $600 million dollars. Guy, while successful, is not worth anything near that figure.

The Ritchie's' divorce will be a major lottery win for Guy, no matter what happens.

The couple married 7 years ago.

This week, Madonna is reported to have hired Fiona Shackleton to represent her in the divorce.

Shackleton was the one who made sure Heather Mills didn't have a leg to stand on after her divorce with Paul McCartney.

Shackleton also represented Prince Charles in his divorce from Diana.

( So the rumours were true that there was trouble in the Ritchie family. Another marriage bites the dust, sad but things happen.)

Page Confirms Zep Shows

Jimmy Page Confirms More Led Zeppelin Shows
by Paul Cashmere - June 9 2008

Led Zep guitar legend Jimmy Page has confirmed that there will be more Zeppelin shows.

Speaking to the Telegraph after the Foo Fighters Wembley gig on the weekend, Page said that the band is ready to reunite and perform more live events.

Led Zeppelin reformed for a one-off show at the O2 Arena in London last December to pay tribute to Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.

A fully-fledged world tour for 2008 was out of the question because of prior touring commitments for lead singer Robert Plant. Plant is currently touring the US in support of his album with Alison Krauss.

Page suggested that the Led Zeppelin tour won't happen until the second half of 2009.

Meanwhile, Robert Plant is performing a number of Led Zeppelin songs with Krauss on their current tour. 'When The Levee Breaks', 'Black Dog', and 'The Battle of Evermore' have been played on this tour.

{ This is exciting news! Though we have to wait quite a bit. In the meantime we just might get a new release from the guys :) }

No Gilmour at Glastonbury

David Gilmour Not Snubbed By Glastonbury Boss

by Paul Cashmere - June 3 2008

A report suggesting that Glastonbury Festival boss Michael Eavis snubbed a request from Pink Floyd's David Gilmour at this year's Glastonbury Festival by The Sun was not accurate.

The Sun reported that Gilmour contacted Eavis directly and offered to perform 'Dark Side Of The Moon' in its entirety at this year's festival. Eavis confirms that that part of the story is true.

However, he was not able to accommodate the Gilmour offer as the line-up for the festival had already been locked in and published. It is now also less than a month away until the Festival.

Eavis emailed The Sun to say "We've got a wonderful line-up and I couldn't bump one of the artists off, even for him. Hopefully we'll be able to arrange it for another year."

Glastonbury will take place between July 27 and 29. Jay-Z is this year's headline act. Just a few weeks ago, it was also announced that Amy Winehouse will perform at the festival.

{ What a bummer, I'd make room for Gilmour anyday! I think it was a mistake on their part, as Gilmour would have brought in even more to the Festival. Hopefully he will want to do it next year. David come to the states we'd make room for you! }

David Gilmour To Perform Atom Heart Mother

David Gilmour To Perform Atom Heart Mother Suite

by Paul Cashmere - June 3 2008

David Gilmour has accepted an invitation to perform the Atom Heart Mother Suite in London later this month.

Ron Geesin, who composed the original piece with Gilmour, Nick Mason, Roger Waters and Rick Wright, will stage the performance with a 10-piece brass ensemble from the Royal College of Music, a 40-piece choir and Italian band Mun Floyd, at Cadogan Hall in London on June 14 and 15.

Pink Floyd released 'Atom Heart Mother' in 1970. The album was engineered by Alan Parsons and reached number one on the UK chart.

The cover of the album was a cover in a paddock with no text.

The 'Atom Heart Mother Suite' took up side one of the album.

While Gilmour is happy to perform the piece, Roger Waters called it a "pompous" in a 1984 interview. It said it should be "thrown into the dustbin and never listened to by anyone ever again!"

In a 1994 interview, even Gilmour bagged the album, calling it "pretty horrible". He said in 2001 that it "was a good thing to have attempted, but I don't really think the attempt comes off that well".

Floyd's Nick Mason said, "it's an averagely recorded album but a very interesting idea".

A year after Floyd released 'Atom Heart Mother', they released 'Dark Side Of The Moon'.

{ Well I don't care what they think of the album I happen to really like Atom Heart Mother. Yeh think the horns/brass on the song they could have done without. }
