War Tribute @ The Viper Room

Monday (Nov. 8) night at the Viper Room was host to a benefit jam with the classic rock band War. Things started out normal enough with the current lineup playing original War tunes, plus a few covers but then a few guests came to help out. The extra performers included: Afghan Whigs singer Greg Dulli on guitars, the Propellerheads on keyboards and Natalie Cole came to assist with vocals! A few weeks ago Perry Farrel joined them on stage at another benefit.


Member of Propellerheads Hospitalized

Bad news today from the Wall of Sound camp: It has today been disclosed that Will White, one half of the PROPELLERHEADS, is in hospital battling what a spokesperson describes as an "extremely serious illness." The spokesperson for Wall of Sound and Propellerheads told NME that White has been unwell for some time, but that the nature of his illness was only recently diagnosed. The thoughts and prayers of the Excellent crew are with White, in hopes of a full recovery. Needless to say, ALL future Propellerheads plans, including all UK summer festival appearances, have been scrapped.
