It was 38 years ago today (September 18th, 1970), that Jimi Hendrix died at the age of 27, about two months shy of his 28th birthday. Nearly 40 years later, the events surrounding his death remain sketchy at best, with the only clear fact being that the coroner report stated that Hendrix had asphyxiated in his own vomit, which mainly consisted of red wine. Monika Dannemann, his girlfriend at the time, has long contended that he was alive when placed in the ambulance.
Foo Fighters plan to take a "long break" from recording and touring, according to Frontman Dave Grohl told England's BBC Radio 1 that fans should not expect to see a follow-up to last year's Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace for quite some time, explaining, "We've never really taken a long break, I think it's time...we've played to everybody. We're over in the U.K. every year, every summer, so I think it's time to take a break and come back over when people really miss us."
U2 frontman Bono and guitarist The Edge will guest on Tom Jones' upcoming new album, which is called 24 Hours and comes out on November 25th. The pair contribute to a track called "Sugar Daddy." Jones has also covered Bruce Springsteen's latest song "The Hitter," which Springsteen wrote and recorded for the soon-to-be released movie The Wrestler. The album is the first by Jones to be released in the U.S. in 15 years.
Sheryl Crow is making the most of her new clothing line, Bootheel Trading Company, by donating 10% of all proceeds from all retail sales to breast cancer research during the month of October -- Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The cause means a lot to Crow, a breast cancer survivor and now advocate for research and awareness. The money raised will benefit the Revlon/UCLA Breast Center. Crow plans to continue helping the cause by making donations and creating specific products to benefit research and education.

Crow's line will debut at Dillard's and other department stores nationwide this fall. Retail price points for the Bootheel Trading Co. collection range from $25 for tops to $65 for jeans.
The debut collection will feature mid-priced jeans, denim jackets and tops, featuring a vintage Americana style that reflects Crow's own style.
