Roundup: Jagger to Host ‘SNL,’ Cobain’s Daughter Controls His Estate

Share this post


Mick Jagger will host the season finale of Saturday Night Live in two weeks, as well as perform. It’s his third time as musical guest, but his first time hosting.

News has surfaced that Frances Bean Cobain has controlled her father’s estate and publishing rights for two years now. Her mother Courtney Love took out a $2.75 million loan against Frances’s trust fund in 2010 and can receive no royalties until it’s paid back.

The project to digitize and present legendary British DJ John Peel‘s record collection is underway–alphabetically. You can see the first chunk of the letter “A”s by clicking here.

Release news: Maybe-parody-maybe-not band The Darkness is out with Hot Cakes, their third release, in August. Meanwhile, the latter-day incarnation of Lynyrd Skynyrd, definitely a parody of the old Lynyrd Skynyrd, will release Last of a Dying Breed, also in August.
