Alex Lifeson, lead guitarist and founding member of the Canadian rock band Rush, was formally charged Tuesday with two felony counts of battery of a law enforcement officer. The charges stem from a brawl that occurred at the Ritz Carlton in Naples, Florida on New Year’s Eve. Supposedly, Lifeson (whose birth name is Alex Zivojinovich) intervened when security guards tried to throw his son, Justin, 33, out of a party after he refused to leave the stage he was sharing with the house band. Police claim Alex Lifeson knocked a female police officer down a stairwell and spat blood in another officer’s face.

J.J. Jackson, one of the first VJs for MTV, died Wednesday night of an apparent heart attack in Los Angeles. He was 62 years old. Jackson debuted on MTV as one of the network’s first on-air personalities on August 1, 1981. He was with MTV during their first five years of broadcasting and played a large role in the success of the station. During his time at MTV he helped “unmask” members of the rock group KISS in 1982, covered the 1985 Live AID benefit concert in London and brought legendary performers like Robert Plant and Pete Townsend to MTV for the first time. He also hosted the debut of MTV’s show “120 Minutes.” Both before and after his time at MTV, Jackson was well ensconced in radio. Just six months ago he left Los Angeles’ 94.7 The Wave (KTWV-FM). According to MTV.com, Jackson was planning on joining former MTV VJ Mark Goodman at ...

SACD and DVD-Audio discs were far from the rage this holiday season, as consumers focused their spending on digital cameras, videogames, DTV and DVD-Video. The reasons for the stunning audio formats not taking off are many, but one of the most noteworthy is the fact the discs are marketed to 50-plus-year-old baby boomers. With titles from the likes of the Eagles, Bob Dylan and Santana, both awesome-sounding high-resolution audio formats hope to lure older consumers into changing the way they listen to music. Clearly, this is a lofty goal. Considering what it takes to make a stereo system play surround sound, perhaps the labels are barking up the wrong tree by marketing to baby boomers so one-sidedly. While this demographic is the biggest in U.S. history, they are not nearly as technically savvy as their children (who make up the second-biggest demographic) nor are they overly willing to change gear or replace their music ...

Back when Napster was turning the music world upside down in the late 90’s and the concept of downloadable music was in it’s infancy, major record labels were frantically trying to jockey for position in a game that none of them had ever played before. Their initial reaction was to try to shut down any and all illegal venues of music distribution on the Internet. Their next step was to create their own online music serves to distribute content legally over the Internet. Sony Music Entertainment and Universal Music Group created a service called “pressplay” and Warner music group, EMI Music and BMG Music with the assistance of streaming-media company Real Networks formed MusicNet. The Justice Department launched a probe in mid-2001 to investigate whether or not the major record labels were stifling competition by giving their own online ventures preferential licensing terms to the disadvantage of independent competitors and to find out if ...
