The Money Shot: Arcade Fire Gets Hit, Bono Sucks Up & Another Ramones Tragedy

The latest headlines...

Arcade Fire's Win Butler hit in face during gig (NME)
MS: Butler changed the lyrics to: "Where'd you go? / No seriously/ Where'd you go you fucker?"

The band went off stage and returned for a performance of 'Rebellion (Lies)' and, according to a witness, "someone threw something again".

Butler stopped playing for a second time and told the audience: "We''ll never play Nottingham again" before continuing with the song.

Bono & Bloomberg: `Our paths will cross' (AP)
MS: "What I'm interested in is not just his cash, but his intellect, and how his business acumen could be used to work for the world's poor," Bono said.

Ex-Ramones Manager Stein Beaten To Death (Billboard)
MS: Stein was the ex-wife of Seymour Stein, former president of Sire Records, which was the launching pad for the Ramones, Talking Heads and Madonna.

A former schoolteacher, she and Danny Fields co-managed the Ramones during the band's heyday. She is credited with bringing the Ramones to England for their infamous July 4, 1976, concert that helped spark the young British punk scene.
