And now for something completely different...

I don't use this blog to do anything but post playlists, reviews, etc. But this was too much to resist and I thought anyone who reads this blog regularly could appreciate it. It's really the epitomy of why I listen to college radio and shop in independent record stores: to stay as far away from these people as possible.

Former Creed lead singer Scott Stapp and members of the band 311 were involved in a fight on Thanksgiving in the lounge of a luxury hotel, according to hotel security staff and 311 members.

311 were in Baltimore for a weekend concert when several members ran into Stapp earlier that day, band drummer Chad Sexton told The Associated Press. Both Stapp and 311 have the same producer, and Sexton said there were no problems during the first meeting.

But Stapp later came into the Harbor Court Hotel bar while Sexton and bandmates SA Martinez and P-Nut were watching basketball on television. He stepped in front of the screen and said, "311, I am ready to fight," according to Sexton.

Click here to read the whole story from the Gainesville Sun. "311, I am ready to fight" may be my favorite quote of the year. Why is it I picture Stapp with an Austrian accent when he says that? Hmm.

Please keep the suggestions coming for great Minneapolis bands and great record lables from the past 30 years. Y'all have given me some great input thus far.
