The Black Crowes are lashing out at Maxim magazine for reviewing the band's new album - apparently without actually hearing it first.
The review, published in Maxim's March issue, gives the Crowes' ''Warpaint'' a rating of two-and-a-half stars out of five.
''The writer - who has not heard the album since advance CDs were not made available - wrote what appears to be a disparaging assessment anyway, citing, 'it hasn't left Chris Robinson and the gang much room for growth,''' said a statement on the band's official Web site.
The band's manager, Pete Angelus, said the magazine explained that its review an ''educated guess.''
''It speaks directly to the lack of the publication's credibility,'' Angelus said in a statement. ''In my opinion, it's a disgrace to the arts, journalism, critics, the publication itself and the public. What's next - Maxim's concert reviews of shows they never attended, book reviews of books never read and film reviews of films never seen?''
A representative for the magazine would not confirm or deny to The Associated Press whether the writer actually listened to the album. Instead, Maxim released this statement in response: ''Maxim will continue to provide our readers with information that is important to them, whether it is about fashion, lifestyle, technology, music, movies and more.

“It’s just the best job,” he says. “I came from 10 years of saying, ‘Michelle, say poo poo,’ so to get that kind of writing, I feel fortunate. Not that I didn’t love ‘Full House!’”

Well wishes to one of my heroes! Thanks Bill for the heads up!
Carl Palmer, drummer extraordinaire and founding member of Emerson, Lake & Palmer; Asia and The Carl Palmer Band; has recently had a successful heart operation carried out at an undisclosed hospital. Palmer, 57, had an angioplasty procedure done which is designed to prevent further narrowing of an artery in his heart by insertion of a stent. " I am happy to say the procedure was a complete success and I am already feeling better each day" says Palmer, who is resting before beginning the Asia 2008 World Tour, set to begin in March. "This was a precautionary measure done to ensure my safety. In my case, it was as a result of a hereditary factor, and the physicians involved wanted to make sure every precaution was taken. I am very grateful for their medical expertise and care. With the procedure behind him, Palmer is cleared once again to resume his normal work schedule, which includes tours with both ASIA and his own group, The Carl Palmer Band. Aside from its World Tour launching next month, ASIA will be releasing Phoenix, its first new studio album with the original line-up since 1983.
Everyone is having twins. Ho Hum. Quintuplets? Now that would be something.........

Although the couple know they're set to become parents to twins, they have no idea about the sex of their babies.
The source adds, "They're not sure whether they want to know the sex of the babies now or wait to be surprised."

Marvel are marketing geniuses...................
Ain't it cool:
Hey, everyone. “Moriarty” here.
Sounds to me like Marvel is going to pack this one with all sorts of geeky Easter eggs if all of these rumors are true. The Blob would be a lot of fun to see in one of these, and there’s another cameo, one that we can officially confirm now, that sounds to me like a set-up for a possible spin-off.
Anyone up for a little DEADPOOL?
How about if Ryan Reynolds is playing him?
This one’s supposed to be a secret, but cat’s out of the bag now, Marvel. And I have to say... I think it sounds like fun. I know this has been a character you guys have been developing for years now (hell, I think I pitched a DEADPOOL film back in 2001), and Reynolds is absolutely the right guy for the job.
