While not exactly scientific, this study does provide a snapshot of collegiate listening habits. And for U2 fans, the news is good! (Note:…

    Bono recently met one of the all-time great chess masters in Dublin, Garry Kasparov, and talks about the visit in a letter that was posted today on Kasparov’s election website. Election? Yep. He’s running for President of FIDE, the World Chess Federation.

    7 May 2014 | 1:39 pm
    Roy Orbison’s Mystery Girl is being rereleased with bonus material in celebration of the album’s 25th anniversary. Orbison died of a heart attack just days after finishing studio work on this highly-praised record, so the celebration is even more meaningful. One of the anniversary package’s bonus features includes a previously unreleased demo of Orbison working on the critically-acclaimed “She’s A Mystery To Me,” a song written for him by Bono and The Edge while on the Joshua Tree tour. Bono can clearly be heard giving instructions to Orbison and percussionist Jim Keltner on this…
