Chris Cornell Found Dead at 52
Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell was found dead on the bathroom floor of his room at the MGM Grand casino in Detroit last night following the band’s performance at the Fox Theatre. The preliminary determination is that his death was an “apparent suicide.” The last song he sang at the show just before his death was the traditional gospel blues standard “In My Time of Dying”, which was made famous by Led Zeppelin who covered it on the Physical Graffiti album. The song is about a person on their deathbed talking to Jesus. The singer admitted in interviews that he struggled with drug use at different times in his life. In addition to Soundgarden, Cornell fronted the band Audioslave, was in Temple of the Dog, and released several solo albums.

AC/DC’s Brian Johnson Sits In On Paul Rodgers Tour
Facing a total hearing loss if he continued playing live, AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson was forced to leave the band’s tour last March. The band tapped Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose to step in and finish the remaining performances on the Rock or Bust tour. It was doubtful that Johnson would ever return to perform again in such a setting. This weekend saw Johnson take the stage with fellow veteran frontmen Robert Plant and Paul Rodgers for a cover of the Barrett Strong track Money (That’s What I Want). Johnson and Plant were sitting in on the Oxford stop of friend Paul Rodgers’ Free Spirit UK tour. The three shared vocals, with Plant also playing harmonica. Johnson sitting in on the number is encouraging, but It’s still unknown if he will ever be able to return to live shows with AC/DC.

Metallica Kick Off World Tour In Baltimore
Metallica kicked off the North American "Hardwired To Self-Destruct" Tour at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore last night on a stage featuring five huge video screens. The band are supporting their latest studio album Hardwired...to Self-Destruct, their sixth album to debut at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard chart. The band has not done a proper American tour in years. The strength of the new album is clear, with the band playing 5 tracks from it last night, in contrast with the St. Anger tour, in which the band had only one new song in the setlist. The new tracks played were "Hardwired", "Atlas, Rise!", "Now That We’re Dead", Moth Into Flame", and "Halo On Fire." The band spread the rest of the setlist out, playing classics including "For Whom The Bell Tolls", "Master of Puppets", "Fuel", "One", and "Seek & Destroy", and five tracks from the (self-titled) "Black Album." Notably missing was "Creeping Death", and anything from Death Magnetic. Sunday night the band live-streamed their final tour rehearsal from Baltimore to raise money for the All Within My Hands Foundation, a charity the band formed to benefit local, national, and Bay Area charities including food banks and music education programs.

Sports Tickets

Fall and winter means sports and more sports. Perennial favorites like Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals are fun to watch in the Eastern Conference, while Western Conference darlings include The Dallas Stars and St Louis Blues. For the NBA season kick off, the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers are still something to see.

 

Cleveland Handles Boston in Game 1
The Eastern Conference Finals opened last night in Boston, with the home team losing to the offensive assault brought by the defending champions Cleveland Cavaliers. Cleveland won the game 117-104. The team was a perfect 6-of-6 from the floor when Lebron was covered by Kelly Olynyk. James was 7-of 7 by himself in the paint during the first quarter. The Celtics came out cold and missed all 8 open 3-pointers in the first half. With 9 days of rest behind them, the Cavaliers came out hot, with James, Kevin Love, and Tristan Thompson all having big nights. Love had 32 points with 12 rebounds, and Thompson had 20 points and 6 rebounds. Boston’s Isaiah Thomas had trouble finding open space and had only 17 points, shooting only 7-of-19. Game 2 is Friday night in Boston.

Ottawa Crushes Penguins in Game 3
The Ottawa Senators crushed the Pittsburgh Penguins last night 5-1 to take a 2-games to 1 lead in the NHL Conference Finals. The team’s offense erupted in the first period, scoring 4 goals on nine shots and chasing starting Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury off the ice, at one point scoring three goals in just over two minutes. Replacement Matt Murray came in for the first time in this year’s postseason. Senators winger Alex Burrows left the ice after a hit by Pittsburgh’s Ian Cole in the second period. Burrows had to be assisted to the locker room as he could not put any weight on his left leg. His injury is as yet undetermined. Game 4 is Friday night in Ottawa.

Wizards Fall To Celtics
The Boson Celtics knocked the Washington Wizards out of the playoffs last night 115-105 in game 7 in Boston. Once again Isaiah Thomas led his team, scoring 29 points. Four other players had double digit point totals, with Al Horford putting up 15, and Jae Crowder scoring 14. A surprise story for Boston was backup center Kelly Olynyk, who scored 14 points in the fourth quarter, for a total of 26 on the night; almost a fourth of the team’s point. For the Wizards, Bradley Beal seemed to be the only consistent shooter, scoring at will against whoever the Celtics put on him. He had 38 points and made over 50% of his shots. John Wall, on the other hand, hit a cold streak, shooting only 1 of 8 from three-point range, and 8 of 23 from the field. He had 18 points. The Wizards bench failed to show up at all, with only Bojan Bogdanovic scoring at all. Brandon Jennings, Jason Smith, and Ian Mahinmi were merely spectators on the floor. Late in the game, the Wizards seemed to lose all sense of urgency, walking the ball up the court with 2 minutes to go. The Celtics face LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers next.
