Bad news for Chris Cornell/Soundgarden fans, the Soundgarden frontman announced today that he’s been forced to cancel the remaining dates of his current solo tour due to injury. Chris suffered a shoulder injury while on tour in Delaware last week. While Cornell decided to take a few days off to rest, doctors have advised him to take it easy indefinitely as the injury has worsened. No word yet on what that means for the cancelled solo dates or the near future of Soundgarden.
Have you ever bought tickets to a concert that a band didn’t show up at or was cancelled?
Pearl Jam Frontman Eddie Vedder shaved a fans head in Washington this past weekend on the bands final leg of their ‘Lightning Bolt’ North American tour. Vedder noticed a fan in the crowd with a sign saying he’d shave his dreadlocks if the band played the opening track off their ’98 album Yield - ‘Brain of J’. The fan apparently just wanted to headbang one last time with his 3 foot dreads. Not only did Pearl Jam play Brain of J, Vedder took the clippers and chopped off his dreads while the band jammed some blues riffs.

A lot of speculation about what may become of Don Cherry and the Coach’s Corner next season after the NHL’s blockbuster broadcast deal with Rogers last week. Grapes got into the issue and touched on the speculation surrounding the deal at the end of Coach’s Corner on Saturday night.
Is Don right? Should Rogers keep Ron, Don and the Coach’s Corner?

Every year, men(and women) across the globe gather to endure a month of moustache glory while raising money and awareness in support of Prostate Cancer Canada through the Movember campaign. This men’s health initiative along with the facial hair it spawns continues to grow each year. Raising $146 million last year alone, there has now been nearly half a BILLION raised by over 1 million registered MO’s globally. Movember CEO and Co-Founder Adam Garone joined the Fox this afternoon to talk about annoying his girlfriend, how he keeps his moustache so silky smooth and gave us as many names for the moustache as he could rhyme off in 10 seconds.
There’s still time to donate.

Is Bon Jovi in the running for an NFL franchise?!! According to reports, Jon Bon is looking to purchase the Buffalo Bills. It’s no secret that he’s a HUGE football fanatic. He’s a former owner with the Arena Football League’s ‘Philadelphia Soul’, highly respected around the NFL, friends with one of the NFL’s most storied coaches New England Patriots skip, Bill Bellichek and his son now plays College Football for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The really interesting thing about this story is Jon’s ties with the MLSE which of course is the governing body for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Raptors and TFC. Jon Bon, Tim Leiweke and Larry Tanenbaum all have a pretty close relationship with one another. Could this be another step towards bringing the NFL to Toronto? At this point it’s all speculation but one thing is certain, Ontario’s drinking laws and the fact that Toronto does not have a stadium big enough to home an NFL team make it a tough sell at this point.
Ron Burgundy was out promoting his NEW book ‘Let Me Off The Top! My Classy Life and Other Musings’ on Conan last night. Not only was he promoting the new leather-bound book which likely smells of rich mahogany, he was supporting his good pal Rob Ford who he allegedly holds in high esteem. Ron sang Rob Ford’s “Campaign Song” to the tune of Loverboy’s ‘Working For The Weekend’. The song is supposedly for Ford’s upcoming reelection campaign…
Anchorman 2 – The Legend Continues hits Galaxy Cinemas on December 20th and is part of another Fox, World Class Pass.
Has there ever been a character as LEGENDARY as Ron Burgundy?

In a study conducted by insurance website “confused.com”, ‘Guns N’ Roses – Paradise City’ has been rated the most dangerous song to listen to while driving. The study discovered that listening to rock music with a fast tempo caused men to speed up and drive more aggressively. Instead of listening to hard hitting fast tempo music, it’s recommended that when you’re behind the wheel, you listen to tracks like ‘Nickelback – How You Remind Me’, ‘Aerosmith – I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing’ and ‘David Bowie – Life On Mars’.
