On Thursday's episode of "The Colbert Report," host Stephen Colbert said a few hilarious words about the band. Guest Stipe was then enshrined into the show's "Rock and Roll Shelf of Fame." Adding to the A-List feeling, superstar producer Brian Eno (U2, David Bowie) suddenly popped up, and the trio launched into a rather moving a cappella rendition »

Dana Edelson/NBC The Strokes on “Saturday Night Live.”

A few weeks ago, when I got a chance to interview Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond, Jr. , he talked a lot about the trials of being in a band.

Mike Starr, 'American Idol' And Foo Fighters: This Week's Deep Cuts

11 March 2011 2:30 PM, PST | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

Another busy week in the MTV Newsroom has come to a close, though the news certainly won't be stopping just because there are a few days off. In fact, the world will almost certainly remain focused on the cataclysmic tsunami that has swept over the eastern coast of Japan (and the fallout that will come because of that disaster).

» The rock world mourned the passing of former Alice in Chains member and "Celebrity Rehab" participant Mike Starr, who passed away at the age of 44.

We’ve been documenting the horrid things that Andy Cohen said about Ps 22 at the Oscars, and Cohen’s mea culpa. But now the choir director of Ps 22 has spoken, and he’s taken the high road. Well, as high a road as is available. “Anyone who would diss 10-year-old public school kids probably has some issues."

One of the unfilmed Two and a Half Men scripts had a casting call for Jonathan, a gay client of Lyndsey’s who befriends Charlie and they get blind drunk together and wake up in bed together with no memory of what happened. It’s either brilliant or horrible. »
