An Arrest Has Been Made In The Death Of 3 Doors Down Guitarist

Following a tragic death, an arrest has finally been made in the death of 3 Doors Down guitarist Matt Roberts. Roberts, just 38 when he died, died from a prescription drug overdose in a hotel just outside of Milwaukee. Roberts served as the lead guitarist of the band from their inception in 1996 until 2012 when he left the band for health reasons.

During his departure, Roberts stated that this was due to performing near 300 dates per year, and the band having exacerbated health and circulation issues that he was currently dealing with. He continued to mention that the band would always hold a special place in his heart, but needed to take this time off for his own health.

Police have now made the arrest of a doctor who was reportedly in connection with Roberts prior to his death. The alleged physician is believed to be from Alabama, a ways away from where his death was confirmed in West Bend, Wisc. Illegal drug distribution has been the primary charge in the case. Throughout his time as physician, Snellgrove (the accused) prescribed Roberts 5 different controlled substances in the names of different individuals, but (police) also have stated that the intended recipient of the drugs were all for Roberts.

Will The Rolling Stones Play for the Donald at his Inaguration?

donaldtrump

The Rolling Stones will have been invited to perform for Donald Trump’s Presidential  Inauguration in January.

If this offer is true, it’s really hard to believe, given a history of hatred between The Donald and  and the Rolling Stones. But maybe Trump is trying to make nice, and there’s an opportunity for  the Stones to unify warring factions.

Rumor has it Trump could be paying the Stones upwards of $5 million dollars, probably more  since during the campaign, Justin Bieber was reportedly offered $5 million to play a Republican  event. That offer was declined, following rumored manager Scooter Braun. Must be nice to turn  down 5 Million dollars huh?

There are certainly other artists that have been supportive of a Donald Trump presidency. But the Stones are not only popular, they’re in great performing shape with the 73-year-old Jagger able to dance effortlessly on stage.

The Rolling Stones have not responded to an inquiry regarding the reported invitation but you can be sure we’ll let you know if they decide to pull the trigger.

As the investigation continued, it became clear that Whitney did not die from drowning but instead from an  overdose of Xanax and other prescription medications mixed with alcohol. Coroner officials indicated that the water in her lungs was not substantial enough to conclude that she drowned. Houston’s publicist, Kristen Foster, confirmed the singer died at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., from a toxic combination of powerful prescription narcotics. page_go Continue reading Queen of Pop, Whitney Houston, dies at 48 »

Live Nation CEO Irving Azoff originally mentioned in Feburary that a marger could happen for the star sometime later in the year. “Live Nation, prior to the merger, entered into some of these all-rights deals, so there are certain artists, Madonna being one of them, that there is a recorded-music strategy,” Azoff said. “Once she gets the album recorded, we’ll sit down with her and her manager, Guy Oseary, and figure out what’s best for the record. It has to start with the music.”

Britney’s Songwriter Claude Kelly Explains ‘Gasoline’

Britney Spears Gasoline

Britney Spears’ album Femme Fatale is a saucy but dark LP that has everything to do with club and dance music. One of the less talked about songs, which holds the essence of the whole album in it is the fiery self explanatory song ‘Gasoline,’- a Claude Kelly written song. According to Kelly, he wrote this song while focusing on the sexiest moments of Britney’s career.

Talking in an interview with MTV, Kelly said that when he was writing the song, the theme he wanted to emulate was that of the one displayed in previous Britney songs such as ‘Toxic,’ ‘Slave 4 U’ and ‘Boys.’  he said that Britney in the physically hot club with guys around her is a very popular theme and he thought that revisiting it once more would be a lot of fun.  He said that even though some may think that Britney would not have been able to recreate the kind of ‘man-eater’ persona that she was once known for in her raunchy songs, she actually pulled it off without breaking a sweat, proving that she still has what it takes to do whatever she wants. page_go Continue reading Britney’s Songwriter Claude Kelly Explains ‘Gasoline’ »
