  Perth, Western Australia, November 11: It ended fittingly where it began 35 years ago, in Perth, when INXS drummer Jon Farriss declared to a 15,000+ capacity house on the opening weekend of the brand new Perth Arena and the final night of the Matchbox Twenty / INXS Australian tour that from this point INXS would bring down the curtain as a live touring band.

Paul McCartney and Wife Narrowly Avoid Helicopter Crash

Posted 12 Nov 2012 in Music + TV News

  From The Guardian…. The British Department for Transport is investigating the near crash of a helicopter carrying Paul McCartney and his wife. Officials have apparently spoken to McCartney about the incident earlier this spring, when his pilot became “disorientated” mid-flight. The incident happened when McCartney and Nancy Shevell were returning to their estate in East Sussex in May. Amid “low cloud base, poor visibility and rain”, their 55-year-old pilot apparently lost sight of the helipad and brought the helicopter as close as two feet from tree tops. A transport department report states that the Sikorsky S-76C chopper only narrowly missed the woods, pulling away as the pilot “executed a go-around”. The aircraft landed at a nearby airport. The...
