David Bowie Turned Dave Grohl Down For Soundtrack Collab, Sent “Fuck Off” E-mail: Morning Mix
:: About two years ago, Foo Fighters rocker and Nirvana legend Dave Grohl approached David Bowie to collaborate on music for a soundtrack. Bowie politely declined via e-mail, and Grohl promptly responded saying he understood the Thin White Duke’s position. Bowie’s second response, likely in jest: “Alright, well that’s settled then. Now, fuck off.” [Playboy]
:: In addition to several rounds of layoffs in recent weeks, Yahoo has shuttered several of its online magazines and reportedly only one staffer remains in the company’s music department as of Wednesday. [Billboard]
:: The Life Of Pablo wasn’t the be-all/end-all for Kanye West. The outspoken wordsmith tweeted that he and pals Drake and Future “all got new shit together that’s gonna drop soon.” What a time to be alive. [HipHopDX]
:: One time Southern rocker Shooter Jennings went over to Marilyn Manson’s house at 3 a.m. to record an unlikely duet-cover of David Bowie and Giorgio Moroder’s 1982 single “Cat People (Putting Out Fire)”. (Again, what a time to be alive.) You can now hear the result over at Rolling Stone.
