Wooooaaaah maaaannn!! This news is warping our BRAINZ MAAAANNN!!

While we already kinda sorta knew Ed Sheeran would be collaborating with some LEGENDARY band on one of their classic hits for the London 2012 Olympic Games closing ceremony, we assumed he would be wailing out with The Who, or perhaps slamming it to the left as Ginger Spice #2…

BUT NAY!!

It's gonna be soooo much more epic than anything our excited minds could imagine, ’cause Ed is teaming up with all some of the members of psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd!

Airplane Pilots Blinded By Terrorist Schmuck With Futuristic Laser Weapon Laser Pen

Val Kilmer laser expert JetBlue pilots

Who does this!?!

Aside from the ill-tempered sea bass from Austin Powers, who actually uses lasers to hurt other people?!

A JetBlue plane bound for New York City nearly crashed after the pilots were blinded by some unidentified Jedi prankster who shined a laser pen at the cockpit from up to a mile away.

One pilot radioed into the control tower for help. He said:

Just another sad reminder that actions have consequences.

Charlie Gilmour, the son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmore, was sentenced to 16 months in jail today after he reportedly dropped acid, took a valium, and participated in attacking a Jaguar included in Prince Charles and Camilla's motorcade during a student riot in London last year, during which he was quoted screaming:

Pink Floyd Beats EMI Again!

pink-floyd-wins-case-against-emi-record-label-over-digital-downloads

Another win!

Pink Floyd has successfully beaten their record company, EMI, in the courts over whether or not their music can be sold individually by track on-line!

As we've reported, the band has argued that a clause in their contract should prevent EMI for selling their songs separately, as it was signed in 1999, before digital downloads took off.

Their lawyer, Robert Howe, argues that his clients want to "know where they stand as a matter of contract" and is concerned that EMI's "entitlement to sell individual tracks, or indeed any tracks, otherwise than in the original configuration of the Pink Floyd albums" and that they're "wrongly exploiting" the group.

After they originally won their case in March, EMI appealed the decision, and now, the Court of Appeal has once again shut them down!

Ouch!

Sorry guys! If it's in their contract - you can't do it!

Pink Floyd Movie In The Works

Pink Floyd Movie In The Works

This is going to be trippy!

Andy Harries, who produced The Queen and The Damned United, is in the early stages of creating a movie around the Pink Floyd song Another Brick In the Wall.

Harries wants to avoid remaking the already popular Pink Floyd movie The Wall and instead tell the true story of the schoolchildren who sang on the 1979 number one single and their maverick music teacher — who, incidentally, was fired after the song came out.

This better get made!! For realz!!

Uh, oh!

Many of Pink Floyd's albums have been taken off the Internet after a distribution deal with their record label ran out.

The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here and The Final Cut have all been removed from online digital stores because the contract with EMI expired on June 30.

The band's reps are working on securing a new deal to bring the albums back for digitial downloads.

Pink Floyd Wins In Court

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters

ap670303031jb__opt1.jpg

As we previously mentioned, Pink Floyd was suing EMI Group over music royalties - and they won!

The record label will no longer be selling single downloads from their concept albums. It has not been determined how much the band will be owed, but the costs are estimated at £60,000.

Despite the fact that Pink Floyd's contract stated that their music could not be "unbundled" from its original context, EMI had been selling the music as singles AND using it as ringtones.

Ouch!

Wonder how long its gonna be till EMI completely goes under?!
