The musician, whose real name is David Howell Evans, bought the land in question back in 2005, and for the subsequent decade has been trying to gain approval from the California Coastal Commission to be able to build properties on the site, with the intention of living there.

Amazing Journey: The Story Of The Who Review


Good
"From humble beginnings to their meteoric rise to rock legend status," Amazing Journey offers everything we've come to expect from a rock documentary. Every piece of information you'd want about The Who can be found here. Early hits like "I Can't Explain" and "My Generation" are chronicled, as is Pete Townshend's instrumental destruction (which has since become a widely copied cliche). Each member of the band gets face time -- though John Entwhistle and Keith Moon, both deceased, are covered via archival material -- in order to pontificate on the band's origins and legendary stories. Non-Who rock gods, from Sting to Eddie Vedder, are also on hand to wax Whoish.

You really hear all there is to know about The Who along the way: from Tommy to two drug overdoses to the influence of guru Meher Baba (the "Baba" in "Baba O'Reilly") to the 11 people killed at a 1979 Who concert trampled trying to get into the show, still the deadliest concert event in American history. Even Townsend's run-in with the law over a child pornography incident earlier in the decade is covered, if only on a surface level.

Big Ben Named Top Movie Location


Richard Curtis The Edge

Big Ben has been named the most iconic film location in London in a new poll from movie advertising company Pearl and Dean.

The landmark headed the survey thanks to the scene from the 1978 thriller The Thirty Nine Steps, in which Robert Powell's character clings desperately onto the clock face.

St Paul's Cathedral was named in second in place in Pearl and Dean's poll of over 3,000 people, for the memorable scene in which pigeons are fed on the steps of Sir Christopher's building.

Cillian Murphy's confused stroll along a deserted Westminster Bridge in horror movie 28 Days Later earned the location third place, while the hectic climax of An American Werewolf in London saw Piccadilly Circus named the fourth most iconic spot.

Several Richard Curtis movies, such as Notting Hill and Love, Actually were listed in the poll, Kathryn Jacob, spokeswoman for Pearl and Dean, confirmed.

"Richard Curtis has done a lot to raise the profile of London in his films, so it's no surprise that he's taken three places in our poll," she said.

"But for a truly iconic image of London in film it's hard to beat the nail-biting, clock-ticking drama seen at the top of Big Ben in The Thirty Nine Steps."

The top ten was as follows -

1. Big Ben (The Thirty Nine Steps)
2. St Paul's Cathedral (Mary Poppins)
3. Westminster Bridge (28 Days Later)
4. Piccadilly Circus (An American Werewolf in London)
5. Number 10 Downing Street (Love, Actually)
6. The Millennium Dome (The World is Not Enough)
7. Westminster Abbey (The Da Vinci Code)
8. Portobello Market (Notting Hill)
9. Covent Garden (My Fair Lady)
10. Borough Market (Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason)

U2 Arrive In Australia To Resume Tour


U2 Bono The Edge Adam Clayton Larry Mullen Jr Green Day

Irish supergroup U2 arrived in Australia yesterday (31OCT06) to complete the postponed leg of their VERTIGO tour. Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr flew into Sydney from their Dublin base before heading to Australia's Gold Coast via private jet to prepare for the tour. The band's legion of Australian fans have been holding their tour tickets since March (06), when U2 suddenly postponed the concerts to allow The Edge to be with his family as a relative battled a serious illness. The eight-month break from their world tour allowed Bono the opportunity to launch his new initiative RED, which raises funds for women and children suffering from HIV/AIDS in Africa. The band also recorded a cover of punk anthem THE SAINTS ARE COMING with Green Day to help those affected by Hurricane Katrina in the US. Bono is currently in talks to appear as a special guest at the inaugural Make Poverty History concert in Melbourne, Australia on 17 November (06). The band's tour kicks off in Brisbane on Monday night (06NOV06).
