Sister Act 2: How Haim Found Their Way Back With 'Something 
to Tell You'

Este is wearing a crescent-moon necklace that Stevie Nicks – a big Haim fan – gave each sister as a gift. "She took us to Moonshadows," Danielle says, "this restaurant in Malibu, and was like, 'This is where we used to hang out,' telling us stories about Don Henley and stuff."

Feminine Growl
Anna Rose doesn't conform to traditional stereotypes of the female—or male—rock star


Rose gladly lists some of the strongest women in music as influences. She considers Patti Smith to be a pioneer and incredible role model. Sheryl Crow showed people you don't have to be 21 years old to make it. Stevie Nicks reigns as an incomparable vocal idol. And for her personally, Janis Joplin, Joni Mitchell and Bonnie Raitt paved the way.

Rooms on Fire was played earlier today on BBC Radio 2. After the song finished the presenter said "Isn't that the best song? We should just play that every week."

I have to say, even after all these years ROF sounds fantastic. What a single it was. One of Stevie's best and I think if it was released earlier in her solo career it would've done even better. Such a tune.

Man, do I wish this song would EVER be played on any radio station AT ALL. It's fantastic and it's not over played like a few of her other singles. It's a shame, really.

Stevie joined Harry Styles from One Direction at his show earlier last night. Here's a clip of Landslide I found on Instagram. She's been pretty quiet since the tour ended. I was wondering if she'd make any one-off appearances.

Was Chris Cornell taking ‘the world’s deadliest’ prescription medication?

In speaking out against a medical examiner’s preliminary finding that Chris Cornell died of suicide by hanging, his family said he was not suicidal and suggested that side effects of prescription drugs could have led to his death.

Specifically, they point out that the Seattle-based Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman may have taken “an extra Ativan or two” before his death and wonder if this commonly prescribed anti-anxiety medication affected his actions, People reported. Soundgarden lead vocalist Chris Cornell performs in concert at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, in San Francisco, Calif., on Thursday, July 21, 2011.

Cornell, 52, was found in his hotel room at the MGM Grand Detroit following his grunge band’s performance Wednesday night. According to his wife Vicky, Cornell was slurring his words when she spoke to him on the phone after his show. He admitted to her that he had taken more than his prescribed dose of Ativan. Vicky Cornell said the call prompted her to contact security to ask that they check on him.

Cornell family’s attorney Kirk Pasich said in a statement that the family is “disturbed” by inferences that Cornell knowingly and intentionally took his life. Pasich said such conclusions shouldn’t be made before the results of toxicology tests come in.

“Without the results of toxicology tests, we do not know what was going on with Chris — or if any substances contributed to his demise,” Pasich said. “Chris, a recovering addict, had a prescription for Ativan and may have taken more Ativan than recommended dosages. The family believes that if Chris took his life, he did not know what he was doing, and that drugs or other substances may have affected his actions.”

Ativan is the brand name for lorazepam,a benzodiazepine, that is used to treat anxiety, drug withdrawal, agoraphobia and seizure disorders, among other things. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, serious side effects of using Ativan include worsening depression, unusual mood or behavior and suicidal thoughts.

Like all benzodiazepines, Ativan is mostly intended for short-term use and comes with a risk of dependance and addiction. The addiction and recovery website The Fix puts dependance on “benzos” in more dire terms, describing addiction to drugs in this class as particularly grueling and potentially lethal.

“When it comes to prescription drugs that are not only able to kill you but can drag out the final reckoning for years on end, with worsening misery at every step of the way, it is hard to top the benzodiazepines,” writer Christopher Byron says in the 2011 post, which is headlined “Is this the world’s deadliest pill?”
The brand name for other benzos include Valium, famously known as “mother’s little helper”; Restoril, which was developed as a short-term treatment for insomnia but became known as the “date rape” drug; and Xanax, which at one point may have accounted for 60 percent of all hospital admissions for addiction, Byron said.

Then there is Klonopin, the brand name for the pill known as clonazepam, which was originally brought to the market in 1975 as a medication for epileptic seizures. Since then, Klonopin, as well as other benzos, have become “a prescription of choice for drug abusers from Hollywood to Wall Street.”

Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks spoke openly in interviews about overcoming her addiction to Klonopin, the Fix says. But other celebrities didn’t survive their experience with benzodiazepines: model and actress Margaux Hemingway committed suicide by overdosing on a barbiturate-benzodiazepine cocktail in 1996 and Hollywood producer Don Simpson died from an unintentional benzo-based overdose. Author David Foster Wallace, who was suffering from profound depression, was prescribed Klonopin before he hanged himself in his back yard in September 2008.

With regard to the Soundgarden singer, Vicky Cornell’s statement Friday describes her husband as a devoted father and husband whose world revolved around his family first and his music second.

“Chris’s death is a loss that escapes words and has created an emptiness in my heart that will never be filled,” she said about her husband, whom she wed in Paris in 2004. Together, they have two children, Toni, 12, and Christopher, 11. The singer also had a daughter Lillian, 16, from his previous marriage to Susan Silver.

Vicky Cornell said her husband flew home for Mother’s Day to spend time with his children and stayed through Wednesday before flying to Detroit to perform. During his visit home, she said, he talked about vacation plans for Memorial Day weekend and “other things we wanted to do.”

“What happened is inexplicable and I am hopeful that further medical reports will provide additional details,” she said. “I know that he loved our children and he would not hurt them by intentionally taking his own life.”

It's so strange to hear audio from Michigan with Cornell sounding chipper, just hours before taking his own life. His wife said he sounded normal on the phone too.

I watched some YouTube videos of it and he seems a little off. There was an article that
reiterated as much. I don't know what to think. People are trying to rent his room at the hotel.

People are awful. I heard the same thing about people trying to stay in the hotel room where Whitney Houston was found.
