Queen guitarist Brian May has fired back at a photographer who filed a copyright violation against his Instagram account after he posted one of her images… of himself. The filing led to Brian’s Instagram account being taken down for a short time. Once he settled the issue with Instagram, he took aim at the photographer, posting, “exploiting my image, and making money off me… you actually stop me using a picture of myself! What a crazy world we live in these days.”
Check out the unboxing video for Queen’s 40th anniversary edition of the News of the World album, which is out on Friday:
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin will appear on the November 29th episode of Modern Family. Chris will appear as himself on the episode called “Brushes With Celebrity,” and apparently the role is more than just a cameo; he’ll have lots of screen time. It will be in flashback form, with actor Ty Burrell’s character, Phil Dunphy, recalling an embarrassing “health issue” suffered while trying to sell the Coldplay singer a house.
The Who’s Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey are in talks for the band to perform a residency at The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas that could last for as long as two years.
Elton John is wrapping up his residency in May, so they’re looking for another act to take over the spot. If The Who sign on, expect the first shows to take place next July. And the price would be right: the band could take in an upwards of $46 million if they play enough shows. The Who previously played the same venue for six shows this past summer.
