Here’s a little browse through the musical world of Twitter today.

  • Matchbox 20 frontman Rob Thomas’ wife is rather observant: a single Aretha Franklin boob is greater than a single Buble.
  • In some parallel universe, Fran Healy of Travis is dreaming about Mogwai (the Scottish post-rock masters, not the pre-Gremlins).
  • Q-Tip from A Tribe Called Quest is dropping some terrifying factoids, to wit: “Ke$ha’s ‘Tik Tok’ sold more copies than any Beatles single”. Surely he’s plucking them from Buzzfeed.
  • UK rapper Professor Green has his own kind of wisdom, about nipples and boobs and the inherent necessity of the former on the latter. What is it with boobs today?
  • Metal gods Trivium are doing a track-by-track on their hit album In Waves. No boobs.
  • Frente’s Angie Hart with Dave Faulkner, Judith Durham on Jon Faine. Photo. Interview.
  • Electro star Steve Aoki confesses – his favourite band of all time is Gorilla Biscuits. More dubstep fans should take his advice.
  • Awesome. The RZA just challenged Jay-Z to a chess game.
  • Dick Clark’s Rockin’ NYE show features megastars like Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj and… One Republic.
  • Mick and Keef from The Rolling Stones have paid tribute to the late blues legend Hubert Sumlin…
