- No stranger to making controversial statements, classic rocker Ted Nugent is once again making the news. On the Joe Pags Show yesterday when discussing the recent school shooting in Parkland, FL, Nugent is quoted as saying, "The dumbing down of America is manifested in the culture deprivation of our academia that have taught these kids the lies, media that have prodded and encouraged and provided these kids lies. I really feel sorry for them because it’s not only ignorant and dangerously stupid, but it’s soulless." He then doubled down on the statement saying, " These poor children, I’m afraid to say this and it hurts me to say this, but the evidence is irrefutable, they have no soul."
- Steven Spielberg's retro themed Ready Player One movie is set to have a near 53 million dollar open this week. The movie will easily be at number one and should remain there for a few weeks before it is ultimately unseated by Avengers: Infinity War next month.
- An article at Ultimate Classic Rock today cites Chicago member Robert Lamm saying that at some point Chicago might evolve into a band with no original members essentially making it an ongoing tribute band.
