You win some, you lose some. From today's rollingstone.com mailer:
* COLDPLAY is contemplating a five-year break so that members of the band can focus on their families. "It's going to be a long, long time before you hear a new album from us," frontman CHRIS MARTIN told reporters. "We've done a few things, but we're all enjoying having families at the moment."
* All the rumors and broken promises regarding GUNS N' ROSES' long-delayed "Chinese Democracy" may soon result in an actual record. A press release announcing dates for the band's North American fall tour (which kicks off October 20th in Jacksonville, Florida) alluded to a possible release before the end of the year. "The only comment at this time is that there are thirteen Tuesdays left between now and the end of the year," the statement read cryptically.
Also, you may or may not notice that last night's rant is missing. I'm not in the habit of deleting posts, really, but it felt bitchier than necessary, so it's gone. I'm feeling a little more in control of things, too, though the paper's still not done and will probably have to be worked on tomorrow while I travel, which will SUCK. guh. Anyway. Happy monday--hope it's not pouring down rain where you are.
