After a short tour out East and back, I’m back in the office working away. It was a great trip, but good to be home and away from rest stops and fast food.

A few things that were sent to me over the weekend that I wasn’t able to find time to post…

First, long-time Greenleaf friend Helen Money has a cool new video on the ‘Tube directed by Nelson Chan. The music is a cover of the classic Minutemen tune “Political Song for Michael Jackson to Sing.” Helen’s new album is due out November 3rd and comes highly recommended.

“I am a very big Fan of Michael Jackson, and am quite angry on the fact that We only started to pay attention to him only after his passing. so here is my tribute to him in a Halloween spirit. “let the fouls choke on their own gold!” R.I.P. MJ –Nelson Chan

Monster Cable releases Miles Davis Tribute headphones. Quite a perplexing product. But like most things with Miles’ name on it, I’d want one — if I didn’t already have a sweet set of ‘phones.

Miles Headphones

Miles Davis Tribute Jazz Headphones are designed and precision tuned with Miles and the unique acoustic tones of jazz in mind.

What would have been cooler than just getting the cans is if the headphones were somehow preloaded with all those complete boxsets. Some Miles iPod or whatever. Still, would love to at least test out Pharoah’s Dance or The Ghetto Walk to see how they sound.


Rock super-group on the way…

I’ve been hearing rumors galore about Dave Grohl and John Paul Jones collaboration — a rumor that I thought was more funny that realistic, even if Grohl mentioned it in a 2005 interview. But today I hear from Mog who heard from Antiquiet who heard from Queen’s of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme’s wife‘s second cousin’s babysitter’s close friend’s sister-in-law:

Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters (we always feel we should state Nirvana too), Josh Homme of Queens Of The Stone Age and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin are currently jamming in a studio over in L.A. and apparently, they’re not leaving until a full-length has been made.

Not much else has been confirmed or revealed so far on the new project so keep checking back for more news as it happens.

All these dudes are solid at what they do even if you weren’t into the Zep, or the Foo, or the Queen’s. Say what you want, this is going to be incredible to hear. Can’t wait.

Whenever I talk about Zeppelin — which seems like a lot lately — I am always reminded of the age old rock question, one that many feel defines a rocker, one that I discussed briefly with Luis at the Showcase this weekend. So I pose that question now:

Led Zeppelin or The Who?
(Page or Townsend? // Plant or Daltrey? // Jones or Entwistle? // Bonzo or Moon?)
