Shania Twain: Beginnings

Although famous for her blend of pop and country, Shania Twain proves she's a rocker at heart with the release of Beginnings, a full length album recorded, written, performed with Paul Sabu (Heart, Madonna, David Bowie, Alice Cooper) in the early 90s. Released for the first time after it's recent completion, Beginnings is reminiscent of the hard-edged rock styling of Heart and Melissa Etheridge. Backed by Paul Sabu and Todd Herreman (Prince) the performance and production is world-class. Mastered by the renowned Arnie Acosta(U2, Pink Floyd, Bonnie Raitt). Beginnings perfects the only way an album was meant to be heard...big, rich, and dynamically amazing

Kanye West Rips Bush During NBC Concert

It began, fittingly enough, with jazz from New Orleans natives Harry Connick Jr. and Wynton Marsalis. But "A Concert for Hurricane Relief," a heartfelt and dignified benefit aired on NBC and other networks Friday night, took an unexpected turn thanks to the outspoken rapper Kanye West. Appearing two-thirds through the program, he claimed "George Bush doesn't care about black people" and said America is set up "to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off as slow as possible."
