We are so close to the weekend I can taste it. Let’s get right down to a list of the greatest music stories from today’s news cycle.
The intensely interesting Kid Cudi gave an extensive interview today – in it, he discusses topics that include AMC’s hit zombie-killing TV show The Walking Dead, pop singer Michael Bolton, and his plans for his life now that he has left Kanye West’s record label G.O.O.D. Music. Kid Cudi is always an interesting storyteller and entertaining listen, so if you are interested, you should check out this interview.
