From The Current – The Minneapolis house where “the Kid” lived in Prince’s iconic 1984 movie Purple Rain is now for sale. At an asking price of $110,000, it’s a relatively affordable piece of Minnesota music history. The 1,348-square-foot 3BR was built in 1913.
For Brian Tichy, a good workout requires a great Rush song. Check out the video above, where the former Whitesnake drummer rhythmically pummels a speedbag to the accompaniment of Rush’s “Limelight.”
I’d like to see him do that to YYZ!

Oh the irony. Lil Wayne was scheduled to perform Sunday night at the Venue on First Avenue in Minneapolis in support of his tour ironically named “Sorry for the wait…”, but bailed on his fans after “members of his entourage refused to take part in the Venue’s standard safety procedures,” the club said in a posting Monday night on Facebook.
The procedures include a pat-down and metal-detection scan on everyone entering the club. Even the artists. This is done for the safety of everyone, but his handlers felt the security measures were “excessive”, and refused to comply.
The Venue stood their ground. Fans waited for hours only to be told Lil Wayne would not be performing. The Venue is refunding fans.
Of course, if a shooting had occurred, the club would have been blamed for not doing a better job to protect the public. Go support The Venue. They did the right thing.
Minneapolis fans aren’t the only ones unhappy with Mr. Wayne. He is being destroyed in the concert reviews on Ticketmaster too.
Sisqó, the artist whose “Thong Song” hit number three on the U.S. pop charts in 1999 lives right here in Maple Grove. “No thongs out here!” laughs Sisqo during a Channel 12 interview recently.
Maybe that’s because it’s so damn cold here.
Mitch Williams and Lenny Dykstra hate each other. I mean, really hate each other. Someone needs to get these guys their own reality show. Dykstra has long held the belief that Williams blew the 1993 World Series. See the video below. Williams, obviously, is not a big fan of that opinion.
The two were recently involved in The Philly Sports Roast. It was supposed to be a fun, lighthearted affair. Things escalated quickly and things got out of hand. Watch the video below. Warning – Strong Language
The Maroon 5 frontman was greeting fans outside of Jimmy Kimmel’s studio on Wednesday when attacker got all sweet on him. Levine was not harmed, but I am sure he was regretting the decision to title his latest single “Sugar.” The man was arrested. It’s unclear what the suger pitcher’s motivations were, but he has done this before. Hollywood police said he is a repeat offender having recently thrown a rock at Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson last week. I guess this idiot loves puns. Maybe we can get him to throw a wrecking ball at Miley Cyrus?
