As many know, The Head and the Heart came together at Ballard's own Conor Byrne. Even though they're playing a show with Death Cab for Cutie at Key Arena and touring with My Morning Jacket, members of the band still drop by the ol' Byrne for an open mic spot from time to time. Last Sunday was one of those times. As word got out that Jonathan [...]
If you’re freaked out by blood, please read no further. Marilyn Manson and Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro have given a whole new meaning to the term blood brothers. In a recent interview with Q magazine, Navarro reveals he used to be a terrible houseguest. “I don’t know if this is funny,” says Navarro, “but when I was [...]
