Who Is Jordyn Blum? Wife Of Foo Fighter's Frontman Dave Grohl

Tags: Dave Grohl - Foo Fighters - Nirvana - Phil Collins - Ringo Starr

As the animalistic drummer in Nirvana and the guitar-thrashing frontman in Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl is one of the most well-known and prolific rockstars on the planet. Having survived the grunge era with one of the defining bands on the nineties and achieved equal commercial success in the Foos, Grohl has successfully secured a place in the pantheon of rock. He is, by all means, a true rock God with his screaming vocals and continual head banging. But it is easy to forget, that the man who used to destroy drum kits on a nightly basis, a chap who barely bats an eyelid at the prospect of playing to tens of thousands of people, is also a father and a husband. But who is the woman who managed to tame this punk-addled wild man?

Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rollercoaster: Lana Del Rey has had a week she'll never forget. The pop star's new album, Ultraviolence, has been met with positivity by critics and has earned Del Rey her first Billboard 200 number one. However, the singer's album publicity has risked being blighted by certain comments Lana made in a recent interview in which she appears to glamorise the troubling trend of musicians dying young. Decide for yourself here. Kurt Cobain's daughter, Frances Bean, lashed out at Lana over her words. Find out what went down.

Gary Oldman Blunder: Silly, silly Gary Oldman. The actor has earned himself a reputation as one of Hollywood's thinkers but his thoughts on political correctness caused a stir this week. In a Playboy interview, the 56 year-old referenced Mel Gibson's infamous 2006 run-in with the police where he voiced an anti-Semitic view. In an attempt to play down Gibson's words, Oldman ended up sounding an awful lot more anti-Semitic than his fellow actor. Find out what was said. Oldman did release an apology, which can be read here.

Phil Collins To Donate Vast Revolution Collection To Alamo

Tags: Phil Collins

Phil Collins is looking for a new home for his vast collection of Battle of the Alamo and Texas Revolution artefacts and is hoping to give them back to the state of Texas if it can find somewhere to house them all. The singer and former Genesis star is one of the world's most prominent collectors of pieces related to the 1836 battle.

The 'In The Air Tonight' singer's interest in the battle and American history reportedly began when he was 5 year-old and saw Fess Parker portray Davy Crockett in a 1950s Disney miniseries. He is also said to have passed on his enthusiasm to his five children.

Collins has amassed a sizeable bank of artefacts, including documents from Sam Houston, William B. Travis and Stephen F. Austin; "hundreds" of cannonballs; uniforms and weapons; a shot pouch believed to have belonged to Davy Crockett as well as a sword belt believed to have been worn by Alamo commander William B. Travis when he died in battle.
