Oscar winner Trent Reznor is talking about his latest movie soundtrack "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" and has released 6 songs to listen to now.

Although the soundtrack is not out until December 9th, you can listen to 6 tracks clocking in at 35 minutes from it now at http://www.nullco.com/GDT/

Trent had this to say on the Nine Inch Nails official web site:

"For the last 14 months Atticus and I have been hard at work on David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. We laughed, we cried, we lost our minds and in the process made some of the most beautiful and disturbing music of our careers. The result is a sprawling three-hour opus that I am happy to announce is available for pre-order right now. The full release will be available in one week - December 9th."

I would recommend using the NIN web site if looking to buy the CD in advance.

It has been discussed in the past that Trent will return to work with Nine Inch Nails after his work with "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" has been completed.

"Immigrant" a cover of a Led Zeppelin classic done by Trent and Karen O' for the soundtrack  comes free now with advance purchase.-DocFB

Prince Funks Up L.A. As He Jams With Nikka Costa

Nikka Costa played a somewhat private show in L.A. last night for the Hollywood elite at Sayers Nightclub last night which drew the attention of the one and only Prince who was seen in L.A. at Club Hyde over the weekend.

We hear Prince joined Nikka Costa on stage towards the end to jam on bass for a bit.  We have been lucky enough to see Nikka and Prince jam together before so we are only a little jelly that we did not go.

So far, there is no video footage of it, but as soon as we get it, we will share with you.

Because we do not want to leave you without seeing Nikka and Prince, for your viewing pleasure below is footage of Nikka Costa performing with Prince during his 21 night run at The Forum earlier this year in L.A.-Dr.FB

Orianthi will perform on this week's American Idol this Wednesday March 17th.

We broke the news exclusively on Friday to our Twitter Followers and our Facebook Fan Page  as Fox did not want to make the official announcement  on the site til Monday, so we snuck to our followers because they didn't say we couldn't.  :)

Orianthi will be performing "According To You" on the show, which is slowly creeping up the charts that used to matter, The Billboard Charts and is sitting at Number 17 right now.  She has been on Funkenberry Radio's Top 21 for quite a while now. 

When we interviewed Orianthi a few weeks back, she let us know that she recorded an updated version of "Stairway To Heaven" by led Zeppelin with Mary J. Blige and guitar God Steve Vai. 

ALSO, Orianthi will be performing  on this Thursday's "Tonight Show With Jay Leno" and that performance should be hot as well. Janet Jackson will be a guest on the show.  As you all should know, Orianthi was due to play with Janet's brother, Michael Jackson (You might have heard of him) before his untimely death.  She is all over the documentary "This Is It" which is now out on DVD.

Hope you enjoy the great photo of Orianthi and be sure to check out her rocking performance on "American Idol" this week to see why we are raving about this girl.  "This Is NOT It" for her for sure.....-Dr.FB

Dave Grohl’s New Band Them Crooked Vultures Secret Show

Dave Grohl

I just learned that Dave Grohl's new band Them Crooked Vultures are doing a secret show at the Roxy tonight.

No line-ups before 2 P.M. and tix will be around 50 bux.

50 bux Dave? Weezer just did a secret show for less than a fraction of that amount. If it was a Nirvana reunion, Queens of the Stone Age, and the Foo Fighters, it would be worth it and more.

For those that go, have fun and I hope it is worth your time.-Dr.FB

UPDATE; The other band members are Queens Of The Stone Age front man Josh Homme and Led Zeppelin member John Paul Jones, so it may be worth that ticket price.
