Rocker Rob Thomas' Wife Is Recovering After Undergoing Brain Surgery.
The Matchbox Twenty frontman postponed a series of solo concerts this summer (15) after revealing he and his partner, Marisol Maldonado, were "going through a bit of a rough patch" after doctors spotted "what seems to be a lesion" on the base of her brain.
Announcing the news on social media in July (15), Thomas wrote, "We are being cautiously optimistic that this is something we caught early and can take care of in the near future but, as I'm sure you can all understand, we had to temporarily postpone some of the tour dates so that we can focus only on this for a while.
"While this is all we are focused on right now, we will get through it and be able to share many more moments together and with all of you in the future. Thanx (sic) for your love and understanding."

A week after Sugar Ray star Mark MCGrath cancelled his high seas 1990s nostalgia festival due to bad publicity his vacation partners recently received when one of their ships was left stranded at sea, Thomas assures fans his band's maiden voyage is still on - but he has started to make plans to get off the liner if he gets that sinking feeling.
And he admits his fears stem from February's (13) Carnival cruise disaster, when holidaymakers were left without power, food and proper sanitation onboard a stricken voyage in the Gulf of Mexico.

Matchbox Twenty's fourth album North seems to have caused somewhat of a stir amongst critics, and not in a good way. Perhaps it's the 10-year hiatus the band has taken since their last full-length studio effort (2002's More Than You Think You Are). It could even be that Rob Thomas and co. didn't ever quite deliver on their initial promise. What's abundantly clear though is that their new record has become a metaphorical punching bag. Unfortunately, it's easy to see why.

Calvin Harris has joined the line up for iTunes Festival 2012.
The 'We Found Love' DJ will perform at the festival, held at London's Roundhouse venue, on September 15, on the same bill as David Guetta. Between them the superstar DJs have produced huge hits for a catalogue of stars including Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Cheryl Cole, Jessie J and Rihanna.
Scottish DJ Calvin recently remixed Florence and the Machine's track 'Spectrum' - currently the number one single in the UK - and will be working with the singer again, as she will provide vocals for his comeback single 'Sweet Nothing', set for release later this year.

After a gruelling three-round show, Jessica Sanchez, Joshua Ledet and Phillip Phillips all put in stellar performances on last night's American Idol. It was their final chance to prove that they are worthy of taking home the title but Jessica Sanchez' rendition of Mariah Carey's 'My All' may well have been enough to push her over the finishing line.
Steven Tyler said to her, following the performance "You'll be the last one standing here, I believe," adding "I could tell in the middle of it ... it was hard," she said, "but you did it so beautifully." He was even pleased with her take on one of his band's songs. Sanchez tackled 'I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing,' made famous by Tyler himself. It would have been a risk in anyone else's hands, but Tyler seemed impressed with her efforts, saying "you just took a great song and made it greater." Sanchez certainly has the thumbs up from the judges, but will she manage to convince the viewers to vote for her and make her the first female winner since Jordin Sparks triumphed in 2007?
Both Joshua and Phillip provide a strong threat, though the judges have been swayed by Joshua to a greater extent than Phillip over the last few weeks. Judges' comments, at this stage, are usually confined to the positive, though Phillip's performance of Matchbox Twenty's 'Disease' drew less-than-impressed commentary from Randy Jackson, who said "It was such a subdued performance from you."
Thomas wrote EVER THE SAME in just a few hours in the midst of his wife's two-year struggle with a rare auto-immune disorder, and the now-healthy beauty took a starring role in the song's video on 7 September (05) in Brooklyn, New York.
The rocker says, "Basically, the song says, 'If you need me, I'm here.' It was the quickest I have ever written a song. It just came out. So it was really special to us."

New Yorker FRANK TORRES is suing rockers Matchbox Twenty for using his image without permission on their smash-hit album YOURSELF OR SOMEONE LIKE YOU.
The portly guy was snapped wearing a flying helmet for the cover of the 1996 album, but insists he never authorised the group or the photographer to use his image.
In legal papers, obtained by US news show CELEBRITY JUSTICE, Torres claims the group "knowingly, intentionally and maliciously" put his picture on the cover, causing him "emotional distress."
