At Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival on June 16, in The Other Tent, a Tennessee crowd was favored with an extraordinary and rare treat. Led Zeppelin reunited! Well, not really. But Led Zep bass player John Paul Jones was joined by Ben Harper on guitar and ?uestlove (from the formerly relevant hip hop band The Roots) on the skins to reform the power trio in indie’s image. Enjoy.

I’ve already told y’all that the new album from The White Stripes, Icky Thump, is awesome.

And you still shouldn’t wait to buy it. Because you can’t win it here.

But here’s what I do have to offer you: A prize package with a poster, T-Shirt, sticker, and pin of The White Stripes

Want it?

You should.

Here’s how to win:

Drop me a comment (or send me an e-mail) with your e-mail address in it. Make sure you do this. No excuses will be accepted.

Tell me the greatest The White Stripes recorded performance. It can be a cover. It can be a studio album. It could even be Icky Thump.

That’s it! I’ll pick a winner in about ten days.



Joe Budden, or Buddens as some folks call him, is a deep rapper. He’s not into conscious rap, and doesn’t think hip hop will elevate the masses or free your mind, but he’s also not a gangsta. He straddles the line between the two, also touching on the border on the Eminem-style self-revelatory autobiography. His second album is supposed to drop this year. (It was also supposed to drop last year. And the year before that. And the year before that.) But his first album, while good, wasn’t great. He’s a mixtape master and not yet a major-release headliner.

His new mixtape, “The Album Before the Album,” collects some of his greatest mixtape cuts ever: Pop Off, Three Sides to a Story (my personal favorite–it tells the story of domestic violence from the perspective of three different family members–brilliant), and many others. If you like hip hop at all, you need to listen to this. Trust me.
