  3. And speaking of The Who, they’ve got a five-disc My Generation set coming out.
  4. Three more David Bowie tracks? Yes, please!
  5. Can’t sleep? Then maybe you need a pillow that plays music.
  6. Tool’s Maynard James Keenan is bringing along some friends on his book tour. It’ll be interesting to see if anyone of these folks show up at his Toronto appearance November 14.
  7. Playing gigs in the dark: it’s a thing, apparently.
  8. Billy Corgan isn’t getting along well with his own pro wrestling company.
