Police haven't released many details on the accused attacker, 38-year-old Brian Edward Krebs, but his social media profiles reveal details about him as a business owner working on his master's degree.

Charlie Crist, David Byrne Settle Campaign Song Lawsuit

Hopefully this isn't the last time we get to use this picture.
Last May, now-former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist got legally entangled with now-former Talking Head David Byrne over using the hit "Road to Nowhere" in a campaign ad without permission. On Monday, that rift was settled, and Crist publicly apologized in a rather strange YouTube video embedded below. "The use of David Byrne's song and his voice in my campaign advertisement without his permission was wrong and should not have occurred," the pol says in the video. Apparently, Byrne's voice deserves a special shoutout in these proceedings. Jim Morrison did not receive one, though.

Anyhow, the terms of the settlement remain private, and Crist was happy with the mediation that occurred. "As I told him, I was sorry it ever happened at all," he said. "He couldn't have been more of a gentleman about it."

Do something else, Chief

​​At its best, the jam band scene offers a friendly space for peaceful folks to come together and celebrate freedom, creativity and togetherness. At its worst, it's a "fish in the barrel" type situation where the many faces of "the man" can come together and celebrate obsolete drug laws. Unfortunately for the peeps who paid big bucks to set sail on Jam Cruise -- an epic fest featuring Scaring the Children (caught 'em on land), Rhythm Devils (ditto), Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Galactic, and a bunch more -- a few federal agencies decided to get together with BSO for a big pre-cruise drug raid. It was their version of an epic jam.

According to a report from the Sun Sentinel, the raid resulted in 15 seizures of mostly head-stash sized quantities of various party favors, including pot, acid, and shrooms.

Does a South Florida Rock Star Like High-Priced Hookers?

This is a serious question, actually. The Detroit News dropped quite a bombshell earlier today following the arrest of alleged Miami Companions madam Laurie Carr. According to a 2007 e-mail to TV execs, one of Carr's clients was "a lead singer of one of the most successful modern rock bands in recent years, was known as a customer with 'very deep pockets' who 'always paid for multiple hours every time his wife was out of town.'"

Additionally, this unnamed rocker was reportedly so freaking wasted during his most recent tryst with a pair of Miami Companions' finest that they were afraid to ride back with him from a supposed "drug house" in Miami Beach.
