These things happened in LA music this week:

Erin Broadley sat down with Scott Weiland at his Lavish Studios for an interview, and the former Pilot, former Revolver, was, well, in a sentimental mood.

KCRW announced that DJ Jason Bentley will assume Nic Harcourt's chair on Morning Becomes Eclectic, and a legion of U.N.K.L.E. fans rejoiced.

The Part Time Punks Festival took over Echo Park, the original punk/funk/electro/hardcore fans rejoiced, and Cassie Ramone of the Vivian Girls rocked our world.

This hot band called Guns n Roses that used to gig on the Sunset Strip and get blowjobs at the Rainbow next door came out of a 17-year exile to stream its $285 billion record for free on MySpace.

This hot band called Jane's Addiction that used to gig on the Sunset Strip and get blowjobs at the Rainbow next door came out of a month-long retirement to frustrate its hardcore fans by playing only to its BFFs.
