Here are all the musicians who refused to play at Trump’s inauguration
Yahoo News - about 1 year
President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration will be taking place Friday, January 20th in Washington, D.C., and Trump himself has already boasted about how fantastic the musical lineup is going to be for the pre-inauguration concert. The event is typically packed with high-profile artists who graciously accepted the opportunity to perform at such an important event, but this year things are a bit different. With such a personality as divisive as Trump, many of the artists who were originally rumored or even confirmed to be performing at the event have since backed out. Here's the rundown. Elton John The Rocket Man himself was expected to take the stage at Trump's event, and his appearance has been brought up on multiple occasions by members of Trump's own circle, but John has since crushed any notion that he would be there. In fact, when he discovered his songs were being used at Trump rallies he was furious, saying that Trump should have asked "Ted fucking Nugent" to provide music. And...

John Corabi: 'This Is Probably As High-Profile As The Mötley Crüe Gig'
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Reflecting on his 25+ years in music, singer and guitarist John Corabi has no regrets on how it turned out. After a stint replacing Vince Neil as the lead singer for Mötley Crüe's self-titled album in 1994, Corabi has played in numerous successful and less successful bands and projects. Now fronting rock supergroup The Dead Daisies, who've just released their third album Make Some Noise, the singer says he's never been in so much demand. "Everything I've done, i've done for a reason. I've never cheated anybody out of anything, I've never lied about anything, i've never scammed anyone. I've always done what I thought was the right thing, even though it made my journey a little longer." -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Vince Neil Fights Nicolas Cage After Allegedly Attacking Female Fan In Vegas
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Former Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil and Nicolas Cage got in to an actual brawl outside the Aria Hotel on the Las Vegas strip Thursday afternoon, Officer Laura Meltzer of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department told The Huffington Post.  Officer Meltzer said the department received a call at 5:24 pm from the Aria hotel regarding a female that had allegedly been battered by Neil. The fight occurred after Neil grabbed the woman by the hair and pulled her to the ground after she approached Nicholas Cage for an autograph. TMZ obtained footage of events immediately after the fight, where Cage is seen shouting at and restraining Neil, who apparently attacked the woman moments before the clip was shot.  "F**k you, man, stop this s**t now," Cage is heard saying as he grabs Neil before others start to intervene.  Officer Meltzer said that Neil was cited at the scene for misdemeanor battery. The citation is not an admission of guilt, and simply means that Neil p...

Why You Should Go Out To Eat Alone
Huffington Post - over 2 years
The prospect of purposefully eating alone in public might seem daunting to some, but an increasing number of Americans are reserving tables for one. According to a recent analysis by OpenTable, single table reservations have gone up 62 percent in the last two years. Maybe it's the plethora of must-Instagram food available in every city around the country, maybe its a craving for some alone time in this hyperconnected age, or maybe it's a little bit of both. Whatever it is, the practice is worth toasting. (Alone.)  Vice's Nell Frizell has gone so far as to argue that eating alone makes you a better human: [...] to concentrate on what you’re consuming, to be able to take in your eating environment alone, is one of the cornerstones of self-sufficiency. You are free from bullshit food shame, from other people’s boring diet restrictions, from small talk, from having to meet someone so late you’ve eaten the napkins before the starters arrive and, most importantly, fro...
