"Mash Up Mondays" are coming to Jimmy Kimmel Live as bands will join together to be one-off super-groups for the late night show.

According to our friends at Pitchfork, this Monday will feature Weezer and ZZ Top as Wee-Z Top and the following week will feature Morris Day & The Haim. The 3rd will be Aloe Blacc and Blackstreet as Aloe Blaccstreet.

The San Fernando Valley's own Haim are huge fans of Morris Day and "Purple Rain" and when they performed at 1st Avenue in Minneapolis where "Purple Rain" was filmed they were super-geeked.-DocFB

Diagnosis: This performance seems rather random but are looking forward to it.

Sly Stone Wins Back More Than 10 Years Of Royalties In $5 Million Judgement

Sly Stone won a $5 million dollar judgement against a former manager that left the singer so broke he was living out of a van.

Gerald "Jerry" Goldstein and Glenn Stone hoodwinked Sly Stone out of his royalties with shady accounting.

"It's a good day for Sly, it's a good day for entertainers in general," Nicholas Hornberger, one of Stone's lawyers, said. "This was an important verdict for people that are artists, entertainers, music composers, etc."

Sly did not see any royalty payments from 1989 until 2000 as money was being swindled then and also to pay off Stone's outstanding I.R.S. debts.

Stone could end up getting more money owed to him as the court will make a final decision in a few weeks.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Great news for Sly. Now can we take care of George?
