eleven.JPGNatasha Shneider, who played keyboards and sang with the band Eleven and collaborated with Queens of the Stone Age and Chris Cornell, died of cancer yesterday. “She was a brilliant, beautiful, and ballsy woman who will be missed deeply by all those who knew her. Send your loving thoughts her way in the universe,” wrote frequent collaborator Troy Van Leeuwen. Shneider and her husband Alain Johannes founded Eleven with former Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Jack Irons in 1990, and the band recorded five albums and toured with Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Queens Of The Stone Age–all groups that members of Eleven would eventually collaborate with or join. Shneider’s colorful career also included playing a cosmonaut in 2010: The Year We Make Contact and recording a song for the Catwoman soundtrack. Some clips from her career below.

blueroom.jpgThe controversy over AT&T’s blueroom chopping out some anti-administration rhetoric from Pearl Jam’s performance of “Another Brick In The Wall” at Lollapalooza heated up over the weekend, with Chicago Sun-Times critic Jim DeRogatis tying the incident into his tireless complaining about Lollapalooza’s overwhelming corporate sponsorship, the Daily Swarm scouring message boards for incidents of the sound dropping out on other blueroom performers, and Wired‘s Listening Post blog finding that there was no “editing for content” clause in the release handed out to performers. One question that remains, though: Why is AT&T censoring for content in the first place, when its site makes no mention of the fact that live content is pre-screened before being beamed to the world?
