Azealia Banks accuses Stone Roses of sabotage, Motley Crue man hospitalised, Thom Yorke plays 'new' Radiohead songs... Music News Daily
Monday, 11 March
Azealia Banks has accused The Stone Roses of sabotaging her live set during a festival in Australia at the weekend. The rapper is claiming that the band (or at least their crew perhaps), who were playing the same event, disrupted her show because she'd fired a tour manager they were friendly with. "My ex tour manager made a pact with the stone roses saying they'd sabotage my set because I fired him.. And they decided to check their equipment behind me during my set. Fuck those old saggy white n***as stone roses. I wish them nothing but excrement and death," she tweeted. The Roses are yet to comment.
Vince Neil was taken to hospital midway through a Motley Crue gig in Sydney last night. The band played a handful of songs before he left the stage in pain, it was later discovered this was caused by kidney stones which were removed.

The gig in Lisbon is off due to "unforeseen circumstances", although tonight's show in the city is still on with a local newspaper suggesting there was "insufficient demand" for the second night.
Rihanna has also cancelled a gig. Her show in Boston last night was off as she suffered Laryngitis. The singer tweeted an apology.
Steve Mason has suggested his own lyrics are incorrect. The former Beta Band man says he's changed his mind on protesting since writing new song Fight Them Back. "Those lyrics are wrong," he joked. "You can't fight back with violence. I used to think like that but it's very naive. They're ready for that shit. You have to find a different way to beat them. It's paper scissors stone."
